With Minny, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Washington on byes in Week 5, dont be caught sleeping when it comes to this week’s waiver wire.

Quarterbacks

MUST ADD

Bryan Hoyer, Cleveland Browns

Owned in 1.2% of ESPN Leagues

Week 4 Stats: 269 yards passing, 2 touchdowns

After two 18-point weeks, could it be that the Browns are actually putting something together?

Matt Cassel, Minnesota Vikings

Owned in 0.7% of ESPN Leagues

Week 4 Stats: 248 yards passing, 2 touchdowns

Is Cassel an exciting player? No. Will he do the job as a cheap, bye-week replacement? Yes. Who knows, maybe he keeps the job going forward and adds a little value to your bench. Cassel is on bye, so you can even look to pick him up next Tuesday.

AVOID

Ryan Fitzpatrick – Despite TEN QB Jake Locker sidelined for 6-8 weeks, Fitzpatrick isnt worth a roster spot except as a flyer in the deepest of leagues.

Matt Flynn – Flynn is doing what he does best; keeping the seat warm as the starter prepares to come back.

Running Backs

MUST ADD

Rashad Jennings, Oakland Raiders

Owned in 0.9% of ESPN leagues

Week 4 Stats: 15/45 rushing and 8/71 receiving

With Darren McFadden injuried again, Jennings should get plenty of run in Oakland.

Danny Woodhead, San Diego Chargers

Owned in 0.9% of ESPN leagues

Week 4 Stats: Week 4 Stats: 5/32 rushing and 5/54/2 receiving

San Diego has proven these first four games that they can score with the best of them (#7 in points per game) and Woodhead looked sharp in Week 4.

Roy Helu, Washington

Owned in 0.9% of ESPN leagues

Week 4 Stats: 13/41/1 rushing and 2/43 receiving

Alfred Morris’ (rib) pain was Helu’s gain in Week 4 and Roy is worth a quick pickup to see if that continues in the near term.

Wide Receivers

MUST ADD

Nate Washington, Tennessee Titans

Owned in 17.2% of ESPN leagues

Week 4 Stats: 4 catches for 105 yards and 2 touchdowns (8 targets)

With Locker out, Fitzpatrick will need a steady target and Washington appears to be that player.

Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills

Owned in 4.8% of ESPN Leagues

Week 4 Stats: 4 catches for 80 yards and a touchdown.

With teams #1 cornerback zoning in on teammate Stevie Johnson, Woods will have plenty of opportunities to touch the football.

Jerricho Cotchery, Pittsburgh Steelers

Owned in 0.3% of ESPN Leagues

Week 4 Stats: 5 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown

OK, so 16 points scored in Week 4 is great and all, but Cotchery hasnt been too shabby the other three weeks either, scoring 9, 9 and 5. No game for him in Week 5, but would be a nice add if you have the roster space.

Streamin’ Defenses

Cleveland (vs Buffalo)
St Louis (vs Jacksonville)
San Diego (@ Oakland)

Good luck this week and feel free to suggest your waiver-wire adds in the comments below!

David Wilson cleared for training camp

New York Giants running back David Wilson was cleared for training camp today. While owners will want to monitor the Giants training camp situation, Wilson looks to provide value as a late round pick this season. Wilson’s return may hurt the value of Rashad Jennings slightly this season. There should be opportunity for both RBs this season. Jennings is still an every week starter and Wilson is a later round flyer with upside.


Rashad Jennings to be feature running back

The New York Giants will use Rashad Jennings early and often. GM Jerry Reese said Jennings can be a “bellcow type running back”. Jennings proved in Oakland last season he can play all three downs. He can be a pass catcher and block well enough to remain in on third downs. Coming off the board as running back 27 and 87 overall Jennings will provide tremendous value and should be viewed as a RB2.


Montee Ball “Making Strides”

Denver OC Adam Gase, who probably has the most boring job in the league, said that he has seen Ball make the most strides throughout the 2013 season, and looks forward to seeing more this offseason. Ball is set to be the featured back in Peyton Manning’s high octane offense. Knowshon Moreno was able to be a top 5 RB last year, and Ball is clearly more talented. The sky is the limit for the former Badger.

Marcell Ozuna

Ozuna went 2-4 with two RBI, and a home run. His second game in a row with a HR. Ozuna had been struggling, but it may be possible the struggles are over. He is still producing some good HR numbers, if he can cut down on the strikeouts things could turn around for him.


Chris Sale

Sale came off the DL in a big way Thursday night, throwing six shutout innings with ten strikeouts. Sale had a no- hitter going into the sixth, but with two outs Zolio Almonte singled to center to break it up. According to Sale and manager Robin Ventura, they had discussed before the game that even if Sale had been throwing perfect game he was not pitching more than six innings.


Dallas Keuchel

Keuchel dominated again Monday night against the Angels. Throwing almost his second complete game in consecutive outings. Keuchel threw 8.2 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 earned runs, and he stroke out 8. Keuchel has been very tough, not allowing no more than 4 runs in his nin starts. He will look to continue his dominance on Saturday against Seattle.
