Who are Dynasty Week 4 Waiver Wire Adds?
Week 3 of the NFL season has come and gone and once again injuries take the top headlines. Opportunity is what dynasty players look for when considering players to add off the week 4 waiver wire. Below I list some deep dynasty waiver wire adds owners should be targeting. If you missed my week 3 adds click here.
Week 3 Stats: 16 completions on 29 attempts, 188 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception
Season Stats: 16 completions on 29 attempts, 188 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception
Nick Foles – QB, CHI
Starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky got benched in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the New York Giants for being very erratic. All Nick Foles did in relief was throw 3 touchdown passes and push the Bears to 3-0, for the first time since 2013. Bears head coach Matt Nagy did name Nick Foles the starter in next weeks’ game against the Indianapolis Colts. So far this season, the Colts defense has allowed 396 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, while getting 6 interceptions. The Colts boast a top 5 defense which makes Foles only playable in two quarterback leagues. He needs to be added for those who own Trubisky or for those needing quarterback depth. Foles remains a low end QB2.
Week 3 Stats: 8 competitions on 9 attempts, 53 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 interception
Season Stats: 8 competitions on 9 attempts, 53 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 interception
Brett Rypien – QB, DEN
He took over in the fourth quarter for starting quarterback Jeff Driskel, who was benched. I’m sure the Broncos could give Rypien the start against the New York Jets on Thursday night, but this is a situation to avoid. If you’re in a two quarterback league then I guess he’s worth an add, but I don’t feel great about it.
Week 3 Stats: N/A
Season Stats: 1 reception, 2 yards, 1 target, snap% 5
Ryan Nall – RB, CHI
With Tarik Cohen being lost for the season on Sunday to an ACL tear someone will need to pickup his snaps. While Cordarrelle Patterson is expected to see an increase in his workload I do believe Nall, the third year pro, will have a valuable role in this Bears’ offense. The only way he doesn’t is if the Bears sign a free agent. As of now, Nall is someone who dynasty owners should be looking to add especially if you’re thin at running back. For his career Nall has rushed 2 times for 8 yards. Ryan is the type of deep dynasty league add I look to highlight in this article.
Week 3 Stats: 4 rushes, 12 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 reception, 11 yards, 1 target, snap% 21
Season Stats: 16 rushes, 57 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 receptions, 26 yards, 3 targets, snap% 26
Carlos Hyde – RB, SEA
Hyde is someone who should already be owned in dynasty leagues. I bring him up here because with Chris Carson escaping a major injury on Sunday, now’s a good time to see if you can acquire Hyde. The Seahawks still love to run the football and if Carson does miss the game, or gets his workload cut back, against Miami, Hyde could see a slight increase. Another player to consider targeting is Travis Homer.

Week 3 Stats: 11 rushes, 43 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 target, snap% 22

J.J. Taylor – RB, NE
The rookie had the third most rushing yards For the Patriots on Sunday, behind only Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead. This was the most action Taylor has seen all season. A lot of this was due to the absence of James White, who missed his second straight game due to a family matter. Never the less, if you have room on your taxi squad he’s another player I’d be looking to stash and see how this season plays out. With all of the injures so far, why not? Right??
Week 3 Stats: 8 receptions, 72 yards, 1 touchdown, 11 targets, snap% 84
Season Stats: 14 receptions, 108 yards, 1 touchdown, 19 targets, snap% 51
Greg Ward – WR, PHI
Due to the injuries to the Eagles starting wide receivers – DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffrey and rookie Jalen Reagor -Ward filled in nicely. Ward had the most receptions, receiving yards, and targets for the team in week 3. He’s someone that has been mentioned before in the dynasty community and should defiantly be at the top of your list, once again. The Eagles play the 49ers next and could very well be playing from behind.
Week 3 Stats: 4 receptions, 41 yards, 0 touchdowns, 6 targets, snap% 79
Season Stats: 5 receptions, 51 yards, 0 touchdowns, 7 targets, snap% 36
Olamide Zaccheaus – WR, ATL
Starting wide receiver Julio Jones was out on Sunday due to an injury. Fellow wide receiver Russell Gage suffered a head injury during the game and Zaccheaus took advantage of his opportunity. Olamide is someone who should be added especially if Jones and/or Gage miss next weeks’ game against the Green Bay Packers.
Week 3 Stats: 5 receptions, 107 yards, 2 touchdowns, 7 targets, snap% 29
Season Stats: 5 receptions, 107 yards, 2 touchdowns, 7 targets, snap% 13
Cedrick Wilson – WR, DAL
Cedrick who? This third year pro had his best game as an NFL wide receiver. With all of the offensive weapons in Dallas, Wilson is someone that I would add to your watch list. This performance by Cedrick may have got him slightly more playing time. Let’s see what next weeks’ game looks like for him before considering to add him.
Week 3 Stats: 4 receptions, 24 yards, 0 touchdowns, 6 targets, snap% 45
Season Stats: 4 receptions, 24 yards, 0 touchdowns, 6 targets, snap% 19
Isaiah Wright – WR, WSH
Wright saw his first action of the season and was tied with Dontrelle Inman for the third on the team, with 6 targets on Sunday. He was behind only Terry McLaurin and Logan Thomas. They had 8 targets and 7 targets respectively. Isaiah, a rookie, is worth an add to your taxi squads if you have room. He won’t be fantasy relevant unless an injury to a starter ahead of him happens.
Week 3 Stats: 5 receptions, 50 yards, 1 touchdown, 5 targets, snap% 63
Season Stats: 7 receptions, 75 yards, 2 touchdowns, 8 targets, snap% 61
Robert Tonyan – TE, GB
While he hasn’t seen a high target volume through the first three weeks of the season, he has been productive with the targets he is getting. For what it’s worth he’s the top tight end on Green Bay’s depth chart. If I’m in a tight end premium league I’d consider adding Tonyan. Outside of that he’s another player that should be added to your watch list for now.
Week 3 Stats: 2 receptions, 15 yards, 0 touchdowns, 2 targets, snap% 36
Season Stats: 2 receptions, 15 yards, 0 touchdowns, 2 targets, snap% 20
Richard Rodgers – TE, PHI
The Eagles number two tight end, Dallas Goedert, suffered an ankle injury in the tie with the Bengals on Sunday. Rodgers is only worth adding in tight end premium leagues until we see if he fills Goedert’s roll completely. Rodgers career numbers are 121 receptions, 1,173 receiving yards, and 13 touchdowns.
