With four games in the books, it’s doubtful anyone has escaped the rash of injuries and disappointing starts. With so many first-rounders underperforming or unavailable, the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 5 has never been more important.

Here are the top fantasy-relevant, low-rostered free agents to target ahead of Week 5, with FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

 

Mike Boone (RB) Denver Broncos (15% FAAB) – Melvin Gordon would be the obvious add but he is rostered in three-quarters of ESPN leagues. Gordon also saw himself benched after another costly fumble. That opened the door for Boone to average 6.7 yards per carry against the Raiders in relief of Javonte Williams. Boone also ran 12 routes to Gordon’s 5. Williams’s season is over with a serious knee injury, so Boone should be a priority add in all formats.

Raheem Mostert (RB) Miami Dolphins (13% FAAB) – Now rostered in 53% of ESPN leagues, Mostert took a real step towards being Miami’s best fantasy RB. He out-snapped Chase Edmonds 46-18 and had 10 more opportunities in Cincinnati. Edmonds will remain involved in the passing game but for now, Mostert looks like the better overall fantasy asset.

Looking back on Week 3, it feels like it was a remarkable slate of games. Mostly for the wrong reasons. The Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 4 is one of the best ways fantasy managers can improve their odds at winning this week and for the remainder of the season.

 

Here are the top fantasy-relevant, low-rostered free agents to target ahead of Week 4, with FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

 

Khalil Herbert (RB) Chicago Bears (65% FAAB) – Without definite word on the right knee injury to David Montomery, be prepared to go “all in” for Khalil Herbert. Montgomery appeared to twist his knee awkwardly, which often means MCL or PCL damage. It could also be a severe high-ankle sprain. Regardless, it looks like Chicago’s starter will be sidelined for several games and Herbert flashed his RB1 upside. After Montgomery’s exit, Herbert did something Montgomery has never done in the NFL- rushed for 157 yards and two scores. Chicago’s anemic passing attack is historically bad, which means Herbert could see a significant workload for multiple weeks. Be prepared to make a substantial waiver claim, but you just might land an RB1 for the next month or longer.

 

Jamaal Williams (RB) Detroit Lions (55% FAAB) – We’ve been on Williams since this summer, so he’s probably not available in your league. However, he is unrostered in over half of ESPN leagues. Williams already has stand alone weekly value. But, with D’Andre Swift now slated to miss at least two games

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 3

Week 2 was filled with drama and several players did not emerge unscathed. Although it is too early to panic, the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 3 can help you fortify your roster to overcome the carnage of a wild week.

Here are some of the top fantasy-relevant free agents to target ahead of Week 3, with FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Garrett Wilson (WR) New York Jets (12% FAAB) – Still available in about half of ESPN leagues, Wilson is a must-add in every format. With a whopping 14 targets, 8 receptions, 102 yards, and a pair of touchdowns, Wilson broke out in Week  2. Although he has played fewer snaps than Elijah Moore and Corey Davis, Wilson still has 22 targets in his first two NFL games. The rookie is a viable weekly WR3 with weekly WR2 upside. He should be rostered in all leagues and is worth a sizable FAAB bid.

Noah Brown (WR) Dallas Cowboys (5% FAAB) – Don’t look now, but Noah Brown enters Week 2 as a top-20 PPR receiver. And the loss of Dak Prescott didn’t seem to hurt his productivity. Brown has five receptions in each of the Cowboys’ first two contests. Last week, with Cooper Rush under center, Brown snagged all five of his targets for 91 yards and a score. The 6-foot-2 225-pound Ohio State product appears to be entrenched as Dallas’s No. 2 wideout. Even when Michael Gallup returns, Brown should remain a viable fantasy WR 3/4. Last season, the Cowboys ran ’11’ personnel on 67% of their snaps. Brown is barely rostered in fantasy leagues but that is about to change.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 2

That season-opening slate of games was certainly something. With all that went wrong, you’re probably going to need to add reinforcement via the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 2.

 

However, keep in mind this is only one week. Less than 6% of the regular season. While it’s perfectly fine to beef up your roster, don’t overreact to some of the unforeseen performances from Sunday. Keep your eye on the prize but stay level-headed.

Here are the top fantasy football waiver wire adds: week 1 to consider, with FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

 

Jeff Wilson (RB) San Francisco 49ers (15% FAAB) – Wilson was the only RB other than Elijah Mitchell to see the field on Sunday. Once Mitchell exited, Wilson got 9 carries and ran 10 routes. With Mitchell (knee) sidelined for multiple weeks, Wilson should have a viable path to weekly RB2 duties. He should be aggressively targeted as one of the top waiver wire adds this week.

Jahan Dotson (WR) Washington Commanders (12% FAAB) – Although he is rostered in just over half of ESPN leagues, Dotson should be considered the top priority if he’s available on the wire. Dotson was in on just one less snap than Terry McLaurin and ran one less route. But it was Dotson who drew Carson Wentz‘s praise all summer. And that connection continued into the regular season as the first-round rookie caught a pair of touchdown receptions in his NFL debut. Dotson is indisputably Washington’s No. 2 wideout and should be rostered in all leagues moving forward.
