Karlos Williams leads the Week 4 waiver adds

Another week, another slate of wild scores, devastating injuries, and unsung fantasy heroes. With three weeks in the books, 2015 is shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable fantasy football seasons ever.

As whacky as this season has been, chances are that nearly all fantasy squads have been hit with a big injury, disappointing early-round draft selection, or an unlucky break that finds them in need of some roster help.

The best way to get that assistance is by attacking your league’s waiver wire. Even if your team is undefeated, a good way to keep the wins coming is to add roster reinforcements. Here are some players to keep in mind when scouring the waiver wire this week.



Andy Dalton, Bengals (ESPN 39% owned; 20% FAAB) – You might have missed out on acquiring Tyrod Taylor last week, but it’s not too late to nab a top-5 fantasy signal-caller. Dalton is tied for tops in the NFL with nine touchdowns, while ranking as PFF’s No. 6 quarterback through three weeks. The schedule also sets up favorably for Dalton to remain a QB1 throughout the season. If you’ve been hit by injuries to premiere quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Tony Romo, or Ben Roethlisberger, aggressively bidding on Dalton could save your season.

    The Giants giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to running backs is very misleading. They haven’t given up over 88 rushing yards as a team in any game yet. The fantasy point stats are skewed by Lance Dunbar basically playing as a WR the first game and two very short touchdown runs by the Falcons. Also the first two games they had a rookie MLB as Beason never played. This site is great for stats but it becomes frustrating when each writer will use certain statistics only to justify his point when it may not really be the case

    What is the FAAB % out of? $100 or $200? Thanks in advance.

      It doesn’t matter what the FAAB budget is, a given percentage is a percentage of that budget. That’s why it’s expressed as a percentage, and not a dollar amount.

      Haha, it’s a percentage, lol, wow
