Waiver Wire Week 4: Best Fantasy Football Pickups & Adds

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 4

Getty Falcons RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson and Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard.

Week 4’s fantasy football waiver wire is dominated by a handful of injury replacements at the running back position. Sony Michel, Chuba Hubbard and Alexander Mattison all see their stock rise with varying degrees of injuries ahead of them.

Elsewhere, Cordarrelle Patterson continued his stellar play as he forges on as fantasy’s biggest surprise breakout performer. Plus, Zack Moss continues to eat into Devin Singletary’s workload in Buffalo as he puts up his second 15.0-plus point performance in as many weeks.

Notable Waiver Wire Targets for Week 4

Cordarrelle Patterson, RB/WR, ATL
Rostered:  65%
Week 4 Matchup: vs. WAS

  • It took nearly a decade, but Patterson is firmly a legitimate fantasy player. The do-it-all skill player is Atlanta’s second-most reliable fantasy option at the moment, behind only Calvin Ridley. Over the past two weeks, Patterson has touched the ball 25 times while averaging 20.05 points and 6.5 targets per game. Washington’s defense has failed to live up to their offseason hype thus far. In Week 3 they surrendered 91 total yards and a receiving touchdown to Buffalo’s Zack Moss. Patterson will once again be a high-end flex play with RB2/WR2 upside in Week 4.

DeSean Jackson, WR, LAR
Rostered:  2%
Week 4 Matchup: vs. ARI

  • Jackson torched the defending champs in Week 3 for 120 yards and one touchdown. Had it not been for a handful of underthrown passes by Matthew Stafford, D-Jax would have easily finished north of 150 yards on the day. With that said, he remains a boom or bust play in fantasy. Far from a volume player at this point in his career, Jackson has yet to see more than five targets in a game this season and is the No. 3 option in the passing game at best. Still, he’s worth an add this week as he gets a welcoming matchup vs. Arizona who have surrendered five touchdowns to wideouts over their first three games.

Chuba Hubbard, RB, CAR
Rostered: 25%
Week 4 Matchup: @ DAL

  • Royce Freeman is also worth a look in deeper leagues, but with Christian McCaffrey sidelined for the next handful of weeks, it will be the Hubbard show in Carolina. As head coach Matt Rhule told the rookie running back at halftime in Week 3, “‘That’s why we drafted you, man” via Pro Football Talk. College football’s leading rusher in 2019 (2,094), Hubbard averaged 4.7 yards per carry last Thursday on 11 carries. He also logged 55% of the team’s offensive snaps — 40% more than Freeman. The Cowboys haven’t really been tested in the ground game this season, as no opposing back has touted the rock more than nine times. With that said, they still managed to allow 22.50 points to Austin Ekeler in Week 2.
