As if the injuries weren’t bad enough, now we get to add in bye weeks to the train wreck known as Fantasy Football in 2014. This week, you’re missing Arizona, St. Louis, Seattle, Denver, Cleveland and Cincinnati to pile on with the problems. Let’s dive in and see who can help your team out on a bumpy Week 4.

Running back Donald Brown of the San Diego Chargers looks like the best choice this week to help your fantasy team. Ryan Mathews is still down with an MCL injury, and now Danny Woodhead is done for the season with a broken leg. Brown was able to get 31 carries last week and five catches for the Chargers. Add to that a good matchup at home against Jacksonville, and Brown could easily run the ball 25 times this week. His production is going to be there, and if San Diego can get a lead, they should pound the ball with him all day against a sketchy Jacksonville defense.

Let’s go over the injuries of the week and see how they shake things up.

Woodhead’s done. Dennis Pitta (hip) is out for the season. Arian Foster’s hamstring left him week-to-week, and Alfred Blue didn’t look great against New York. Kyle Rudolph is out 4-6 weeks with hernia surgery and Matt Cassel is likely done for the year with multiple foot fractures. Carolina will be without running back Mike Tolbert (hairline fracture in leg) and Johnathan Stewart (sprained knee) against Baltimore, leaving their choices at slim to none at that position. T.Y. Hilton of the Colts (sprained ankle) isn’t expected to miss any time, but will be limited in practice this week. And those were the guys who got hurt. It says nothing about the ones who might be coming back from injuries suffered earlier. Yikes.

 

Quarterbacks

Eli Manning has a chance on Thursday to make something big of himself. In his last two games, he’s thrown for 511 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions. Now he gets to take on the Washington secondary that was torched by Philadelphia this past weekend. The Washington Football Team have also lost CB DeAngelo Hall for the season with a torn Achilles tendon so it could be even worse. Add in the fact it’s a Thursday game and this could be a huge night for Eli. Washington gave up 325 yards and three scores through the air last week. He looks to be a good replacement for brother Peyton who is on bye this week.

Teddy Bridgewater is also going to come up this week on the waiver wire. He’s going to get his shot to run the team with Cassel out of the way but it’s not wise to add him right now. He’ll be working without Adrian Peterson and Rudolph is banged up which leaves Rhett Ellison and MarQueis Gray as the top options at that spot. Neither is worth rostering except in the deepest and largest of leagues. Minnesota hosts Atlanta in a late game that also makes us pump the brakes on him. Yes, Atlanta has been ground up on the ground but they are coming off a 56-point outburst against Tampa Bay. The Falcons should get an early lead and force Bridgewater to throw a bunch. He’s got the arm to do it but the Atlanta secondary could be a tough test. Add to that his next game is a short week against Green Bay and it looks like a situation to pass on.

So what about Blake Bortles? He’s going to get the start against San Diego this week after Chad Henne was ineffective against Indianapolis. Jacksonville doesn’t have much of a rushing attack (yeah, we’re talking to you, Toby Gerhart) so Bortles should have plenty of chances to sling the pigskin about. Marqise Lee is banged up and Cecil Shorts III is a questionable option at best so Bortles is lacking in the weapons department. Upcoming games against Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Cleveland give some promise but it’s not enough to pick him up this week.

 

Running Backs

Andre Ellington, Gio Bernard, Montee Ball, Marshawn Lynch and Zac Stacy are all on bye this week so we need some reinforcements, stat.

The Carolina running back situation is a mess if DeAngelo Williams doesn’t play, and is to be avoided. I’m not trusting a game in fantasy with the equivalent of a sixth-string running back.

Pittsburgh’s LeGarette Blount is worth a look as a bye-week fill-in. Both he and Le’Veon Bell had strong games on the ground against Carolina and the Steelers are starting to look like the ones we know and love. Running against Tampa isn’t that tough, and he should be used to get you through the six-team bye week this week.

Check your waiver wire for Matt Asiata of the Vikings. A new quarterback plus a missing tight end could lead to a sizable workload for Asiata this week, especially in PPR leagues where he has 84 yards and a touchdown on eight catches over the last two weeks.

We’re avoiding Alfred Blue this week since his value is directly contingent on Foster’s hamstrings. Lorenzo Taliaferro is risky to add this week. Justin Forsett has done well and Bernard Pierce could be back healthy this week. There just aren’t enough balls to go around to keep all three of them happy and Taliafero could be the odd man out. Check on Pierce’s status later today and see what he looks like for Week 4 against Carolina. Forsett, however, looks to be widely available.

Knile Davis of the Chiefs was last week’s pickup of the week but his value for this week is questionable at best. The Chiefs go to Foxboro on Monday night to take on the Patriots. Jamaal Charles gets an extra day to let his ankle heal and there are no other options if you roll with Davis (or Charles).

It’s a thin pool at running back this week and six teams on bye makes this difficult at best.

 

Wide Receivers

You’ll need to replace Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, AJ Green, Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Percy Harvin so this is also going to be a rough ride.

We’ll push James Jones of Oakland again this week. He didn’t score for the first time in three games but Rod Streater suffered a broken foot, so Jones will see more targets. The reason we’re not totally crazy about Jones this week is that the Raiders take on Miami… in London. It’s a super-tough trip when you’re going seven time zones east for a week.

Brandin Cooks of the Saints looked good again last week with 74 yards on eight catches and 10 targets last week. The Saints take on the Rams and they were just ripped apart through the air by Dallas. Check your wire and see if Cooks is there to help out.

All Kelvin Benjamin of the Panthers does is use his size to make solid catches and post nice numbers. He went for 8-115-1 against Pittsburgh Sunday night and should matchup well against the Baltimore secondary. He can produce well whether it’s Cam Newton or Derek Anderson under center for Carolina.

 

Tight Ends

This position has become a total disaster. Take out Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook are all on bye. Pitta’s done for the year. Jordan Reed is still out. Yeah, this has become tough but we’ll help you through it.

Niles Paul of Washington had 68 yards on six catches while Reed was shelved. He has a good connection with Kirk Cousins and would make a nice fill-in against the Giants. Owen Daniels should get consideration in Baltimore for a back-up tight end role. We know how Joe Flacco likes throwing to the tight end and now it’s Daniels’ time to shine.

Larry Donnell of the Giants has put it together consistently with 18 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in three weeks. Washington is banged up in the secondary and Donnell could have another solid day, especially in PPR.

Heath Miller of Pittsburgh is widely available but look for a 4-40-0 line from him in Week 4. A few points beats no points but you shouldn’t stoop that low.

After that, it becomes a total crap shoot and the best advice there is to see if something happens during the week to change opinions on players.

 

Kickers

Alex Henery has signed with Detroit, ending the Nate Freese experiment after too many missed kicks. Henery was the most accurate kicker in the history of college football while at Nebraska, and should be owned in all formats.

Graham Gano of Carolina has a positive matchup with Baltimore. Gano hit three field goals in the first half against the Steelers and should add positive points. Other good options include Shaun Suisham of the Steelers, Cody Parkey of Philadelphia and Robbie Gould of the Bears.

(They’re kickers, we’re not going terribly in depth here)

 

Defense & Special Teams

Pick up San Diego this week at home against a rookie quarterback making his NFL debut. Atlanta offers some promise in a similar situation. The Dolphins and Steelers also make good plays this week.

 

Final Thought: This is another week where it will pay to play reverse waivers. Someone will make a mistake and inevitably drop someone of value with six teams off. Check your waiver wire during the day Wednesday and see if someone made a huge error. I like to call it having one’s brains explode in fantasy football. Two weeks ago, I picked up Julio Jones when someone’s brain exploded. You never know what might be dropped with so many teams off.

    In a vacuum, straight up (PPR) who wins this trade:

    Lacy/TY Hilton or Cord Patterson/Josh Gordon (or Veeren)

    I’m the latter trying to get Lacy

    • JM says:
      (link)

      @Dung: Maybe if in a 14-16 team league someone will pony up for Josh Gordon otherwise they’ll just wait for you to drop when Bye weeks and injuries take their toll. From a talent standpoint it’s pretty much a wash (w/Vereen that is). It’s a solid trade if TY and Lacy can stay healthy but risky since both already banged up this year. I would stay pat (no pun…) but would not blame you if pulled trigger.

      • Random Dude says:
        (link)

        @JM: Hilton has been getting crap for his games but I think people are expecting a bit too much. However, he is putting up decent PPR numbers and getting tons of targets. He’ll have a bunch of 10-12 point games and a few monsters. Sounds like what you’ll get from Patterson. And I’ll take Lacy for the time Gordon is suspended.

        I think Hilton/Lacy side wins.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Dung: The Oreck Oracle says the Lacy side wins. Hilton has his good games as well and is a solid WR. I want to see how Patterson is impacted by Bridgewater under center instead of Cassel. Gordon has a great amount of talent but how rusty will he be at Week 11? And if he happens to re-injure the abdominal thing that kept him out of preseason it could really wipe his value down.

      So, Lacy Hilton it is. And why does that name sound like a porn star?

  2. Grant says:
    (link)

    Would you drop Chris Johnson for Brown. I have Murray and Forte as my primary backs, have been using Johnson as Flex. I have Miller ready to go this week, but not sure if Brown will be a better bet than Johnson going forward.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Grant: Yes I would. I think unless Chris Ivory gets hurt CJ?K is not worth it anymore. He doesn’t hit the holes hard and isn’t involved in the passing game at all. He’s an RB2 on his own team and that doesn’t bode well for his value.

  3. Spammer Jay says:
    (link)

    Drop Kniles or Rainey for Brown this week?

    • Spammer Jay says:
      (link)

      @Spammer Jay: or option C would be to drop AP. Thanks for your help.

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @Spammer Jay: Rainey. Doug Martin practiced Monday and didn’t have any negative reports. Rainey coughed it up twice and could be living in the Coaches’ Dog House in Tampa.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Andrew Nordmeier: while it still makes sense to grab brown (as he has no competition at SD, for weeks anyway), rainey could still end up continuously starting at TB, per those reports from just one week ago that lovie doesn’t quite like something about martin. it’s possible in 3-4 weeks rainey has most value of those three. right now, the least though.

  4. MUGATU says:

    Dropping Kyle Rudolph (14 team, Non-PPR) and currently slumming the waiver wire:

    In what order:
    Garrett Graham
    Owen Daniels
    Heath Miller
    Dwayne Allen

    Thanks!

    • JM says:
      (link)

      @MUGATU: No Kelce, Donnell? Tough. In your league would go for a home run hitter like Allen, then target consistency with Miller, Kubiak’s Daniels, and finally Graham.

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @JM: Daniels, Allen, Miller, Graham for me. Daniels is going to get the looks in that system. He won’t blow you away but he’ll put up good numbers. Allen has the best quarterbacking situation but the Colts have several other offensive options in the passing game. Miller over Graham since I would put Roethlisberger over Fitzpatrick and his gnarly beard.

    would you drop terrance williams/toby gerhart/ or colston for lagarrete blount (i own le’veon), or jordan matthews

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @hellllpt: Gerhart can go. He has done zip, zilch, nada for the Jags this season.

      • Rags says:
        (link)

        @Andrew Nordmeier: You don’t think the new QB situation could help him out at all in the coming weeks?

    • sniff test says:
      (link)

      @hellllpt: I would drop Colston. RBs are hard to come by. Sometimes you have to play a guy just because he plays. Colston would be my drop.

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        I keep Colston especially when that Saints offense plays Dallas this week.

        • hellllpt says:
          (link)

          @Andrew Nordmeier:

          gerhart’s still a starting rb tho right?

          would you go for blount or jordan matthews (should i be worried about handcuffing le’veon?)

            • goodfold2 says:
              (link)

              @sniff test: if gerhart was a starter on his team he would’ve dropped him for somebody already. and if that was the case he’d have to have at least 3 injuries (which is possible, he could have charles/moreno/mathews)

              • sniff test says:
                (link)

                @goodfold2: i play a guy this week that is starting him. It depends on how deep your league is and if you play a flex or not. And because of bye’s he could be his RB2.

            • picleball says:
              (link)

              @sniff test: I own le’von/doug martin/montee ball…. le’veon has been a huge hit, the other two not so much. funny thing is le’veon had the least hype coming in, and was supposed to be in a rbbc all year.

              gerhart is terrible and my RB#4.

  6. Oliver says:
    (link)

    I’m in first place in both of my leagues. Thanks a million.

    This week for team #1:
    I’m picking up Cousins to replace Peyton.
    I have Lacy and Bradshaw for starting RBs.
    Julio Jones and Mike Wallace for WRs.
    Greg Olsen at TE.
    For FLEX, I’m going with Cooks, but I also have V-Jax, Gerhart, and C-Shorts. Am I right here?

    Team #2, I have Luck, DezB, Cobb, La’Veon Bell, and Olsen.
    For my WR3, should I go with Sammy Watkins, Steve Smith, or Cecil Shorts?
    For my RB2, should I go with Rashad Jennings, Bradshaw, or Bernard Pierce to replace Beast Mode.

    Thanks for all you do! You’re the best!

    • Oliver says:
      (link)

      @Oliver: I should also ask, in Team #1, should I drop Crowell or Pierce to pick up Cousins? I also have Jeremy Hill, Josh Gordon, and I’m getting sick of Gerhart. Thanks again for your advice.

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @Oliver:

        Team 1: Cooks and drop Crowell since he’ll slip out of people’s minds this week.

        Team 2: Steve Smith (against his old team) and Jennings.

        Glad we can help!

    Hey man, waiver question,

    Keep or drop forsett Id be looking to add Lorenzo taliaferro

    Keep or drop malcom floyd Id be looking to add jordan matthews.

    My rb’s: gio bernard (bye), terrance west (bye), jeremy hill (bye), Ben Tate (bye), Darren McFadden , forsett , Gerhart & ahmad Bradshaw.

    My WR’s: demaryius thomas (bye), Crabtree, Kelvin benjamin, cordarrelle patterson, wheaton & malcom floyd.

    My TE is Ertz I don’t have a backup te

    QB is brady & backup is romo

    Defense is Texans who face bills in Houston I was going to drop for chargers or Miami but I may give Houston one more week.

    Kicker is Gould.

    We start 2 rbs(but there’s a flex)
    We start 3 WR’s (there’s a flex too)
    .20 ppr

    Each week waiver order changes & this week I’m 4th in the order out of 10 teams.

    Since most of my rb’s have byes this week would you keep or drop DMC? Oak is facing Miami I don’t feel confident about starting gerhart yet. & forsett is up in the air.

    If I did drop DMC it would be to make room to try to aquire Khiry robinson be trading my malcom floyd but that owner isnt biting

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @J: Answers are as follows:

      Hold on to Forsett for now. Baltimore will need multiple backs against Carolina’s tough defense.
      Drop Malcom Floyd for Jordan Mathews. Floyd had a good game but needs to keep having them before I’m higher on him.

      Go for the Chargers DST this week at home against the Jags. Bortles threw a pick six in limited action last week against Indy.

      Keep DMC especially if there is no MJD. The fact they have to go all the way to London will also have them using two running backs to stay fresh. You could drop Gerhart to get Khiry and make it all work.

    I have the the no.2 waiver priority this week. What players
    should I target for add/drop and in what order, be it with waivers or after they
    clear?

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @Joe: Answer Summary: Yes.

        Forsett should be good long-term. I love the SD DST this week.

  9. KK says:

    Do you like Bortles or eli more ROS?

    Also: with bye Sankey Taliaferro or Blount?

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @KK: Bortles ROS. Hes going to be throwing a ton since the Jags have no ground game to speak of. He’s going to have his share of picks but he needs to learn. Eli is dealing with Cruz’s dropsies, Beckham out, Jennings running well and Donnell being his best receiving threat.

      Blount-Sankey-Taliaferro in that order. Bell can’t run it all the time and the Steelers should crush Tampa

  10. mcBlunty says:
    (link)

    need a qb fill in with Peyton on the bye this week, first option is a trade offer for Tony Romo in where I give up Khiry Robinson and Baltimore Def, the later of which I think can replace pretty easily

    the other option would be to hit the waiver wire with my #2 priority where Kirk Cousins and Ben Roethlisberger are both available with juicy matchups, in this scenario I would drop the likes of Fred Blue or Knile Davis, I currently have Foster and it looks like Charles should be back this week

    so which way should I go, and if I go option 2 am I better to drop Davis since I have Foster and Blue is his handcuff

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @mcBlunty: Thought of dropping the BAL DST for Cousins? See how the week plays out and drop Blue for a late-week DST (Hint: San Diego) as we find out more on Foster’s hammy.

  11. Switch Hitter says:
    (link)

    #1 Waiver position in a 12 Team ESPN (w/ 6 Pt. QB TDs)

    Option 1) Pick up San Diego D/ST (Currently own New Orleans)
    Options 2) Pick up Eli (Struggling with Brady — 0-3 start)

    My opponent needs a QB too, which is steering me to Eli… thoughts?

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Switch Hitter: Eli. Block your opponent and make things tough for him. You can always get another DST (like, Pittsburgh?) if you want.

      I, too, am struggling with Brady and have an 0-3 team in a money league. I was 0-3 there last year too then ran off 10 of my next 12, made the playoffs and finished 3rd, Hang in there!

  12. Clint says:
    (link)

    Would you save your waiver wire spot & hang with Tannehill as a QB4 (2 QB league) or claim one of T-Bridge or Bortles & drop Tanny? I don’t really need to make a move and like you said, I anticipate some good players being dropped this bye week in my league where we don’t have that many bench spots.l

      @hellllpt: DET simply because so far this year they’ve been a lot better overall, and even if you lose a little this week instead of going PIT (who also just had a lot of their important guys get injured, at least for a few weeks each, or more), you’ll gain a lot by having DET longer term, if you want to.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @JoeBoo: probably drop Blue. asiata has similar situation to that OAK fullback guy who had value last 2 years, simply because he’ll be big part of offense, no matter how good he is or isn’t. reece is the name i’m thinking of.

  24. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Drop Rainey? Other options are Chris Johnson or K. Davis. Need a bye week QB.

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: it could be CJ, he’s looked terrible, rainey could still have that job. don’t drop knile for sure, he’s actually good when he plays; KC is playing head games, and there really isn’t any way to know whether what Charles has is a high ankle sprain or a bruise. there are two things i’m completely sure of though
      1. Nobody in their right mind puts a superstar RB out there with real high ankle sprain (you simply can’t push off an ankle in this situation) one week after getting it (which KC didn’t do, but at least pretended they may have started Charles last week)
      2. It also doesn’t take 7 days to determine that a high ankle sprain is really a “bruise”.
      3. If in fact they do intend to play a guy too early coming off an high ankle sprain it is very likely he’ll reinjure it, and then require at least more time than these things actually take to heal (which is usually a month, minimum)

    With Seattle off, I grabbed Detroit’s Def against the Jets. Would you hold on that or switch out for San Diego?

    Also, Michael Floyd was dropped in my league. Is he worth dropping Roddy White’s perpetually hurt hamstrings or Ahmad Bradshaw for? NIles Paul is also an option as soon as V. Davis is cleared to play.

    Thanks!

      @jordan73: if it’s a one week only play going SD makes sense.

    I was offered Zac Stacy and Kaepernick for Bradshaw. Gotta take that right?

      @sambi: are you serious? i’d rather have stacy alone. somebody is a IND homer in this trade. You probably already have a better QB than kaep, but your opponent for some reason seems to really want bradshaw way too much, so what else does your opp have that is actually useful to go with stacy?

    julio already had one God game by that point, are you sure the guy at top of waivers simply didn’t pay the previous julio owner? that makes much more sense than believing that anyone actually thought dropping julio jones was the best player to drop.

    @Braun Weasleys: Robinson and BUF…HOU looked lost against NYG

    Oh my god I need a tight end. Had Rudolph. He’s out. There is really not much available. Ladarius Green. Eric Ebron. Andrew Quarless. Brandon Pettigrew. Jace Amaro. Heath Miller. Dwayne Allen.

    Which of those guys you think has the best chance of long-term success?

    Since my computer keeps being persnickety, I’m putting everyone’s answers here.

    Helllpt: PIT this week and next
    JoeBoo: Drop Blue for Sankey
    Stevenson: Yes, assuming Doug Martin does okay this week in practice.
    Joe Sich: Brown looks good to me down here in the desert. I want to see how Bortles does for a full game before I go in on his WRS
    Jordan 73: Detroit should do fine but I prefer SD; drop Paul for Floyd.
    Sensei: I’m goen Owen
    Cups: DT–this was one off week.
    Adam: Donnell looked good to me the last couple weeks.
    Sambi: YES
    Paige: No. You would be left with a potentially ailing RB, a hit-or-miss PPR guy in Sproles and a pair ofbackups.
    Goodfold:I don’t know how it happened but it was awesome!

    whats the deal with Cam and Tony romo this year? they both suck. is it just me or are all qb’s this year kinda ‘meh. i know conventional wisdom says dont take qb’ s early, but peyton/rodgers/brees aren’t even really dominating people. i mean look at philip rivers.

    • picleball says:

      @picleball: scratch that on peyton. but brees and rodgers aren’t looking awesome. i guess it’s just week 3, way too early to tell right?

        @picleball: Cam isn’t off to that great of a start since he is a single threat quarterback. His running game hasn’t taken off yet. Romo is bland right now but when the Dallas defense falters, he’s going to have to put some fantasy points on the board.

        Right now, it is a little early. People might be bailing out on Brady but the potential is there for him to have big games and win fantasy games for people.
