VIP Services – Grab Bag Week 4 Waiver Plays

Week 3 is in the books.  I was right on nearly everything, but I missed badly on Davonta Freeman.   There are some serious panic spots (C.J. Anderson, Roddy White, Drew Brees), but there are  number of ways to get healthy fast.  Here are the recommended grabs for Week 4:

QUARTERBACKS

Mike Vick, PIT

Vick has a checkered past on and off the field, but in this offense where he just needs to shoot to Antonio Brown or dink and hand off to LeVeon Bell he will be just fine.  Vick still brings the run/pass combo that makes him a viable starter for the next several weeks.

Flacco has been largely overlooked with the 0-3 start and a miserable game 1, but he has put up consecutive 300 plus 2 TD games and the trend will continue with the Ravens D getting pummeled.  All Trestman offenses yield big QB results.
I hate this guy’s skills.  But if you have watched how they cannot run the ball at all you know he will have to keep throwing.  Despite interceptions, while he is the starter he will put up close to three hundred yards and multiple TDs.  He’s a matchup play for bye weeks.
RUNNING BACKS
I don’t believe in him as an NFL back, but apparently I need to start.  3 TDs?  141 yards?  Are you freaking kidding me? He will be a focal point of their offense and now should keep the job even when Coleman returns.  You missed his best game, but he is a receiving back so I like him to remain consistent enough in PPR leagues.
When the Jags get that far behind Yeldon will struggle,m but this is a good time to grab him as when games are within 10 points he will dominate touches.  I like him for 100 and a TD next week.
People who didn’t see the game will see Rawls 100 yards in garbage time as an indication that he is the go-to back with lynch potentially sidelined.  Fred Jackson is the handcuff here and will be productive if Lunch cannot go.
So much for all the David Johnson talk.  I like DJ better than CJ long term, but CJ showed he is the lead dog and won’t give that up anytime soon.  Like Kurt Warner, he is resurrecting his career in the dessert and should be considered a middling RB2 going forward.
He is stuck in a committee, but it appears Coughlin et al finally realized Jennings doesn’t have it anymore.  Williams got all of the goal line work and the carries when the Giants needed tough yards.  His role will continue to grow, but he is only a bye-week or desperation flex option as he still resides in a committee of three.
WIDE RECEIVERS
Britt has been leading the Rams with Quick out and although he isn’t spectacular he is a serviceable bye-week flex.  He put up 7 catches for over 100 yards against the Steelers and is quietly becoming more consistent.
I have been resisting this because of all of the other talent present, but Tannehill loves throwing to him and he continues to produce.  He’s a WR3 who will put up some bigger games and has the downside of a few stinkers as well.
Harvin is still available in most leagues and he has been relatively consistent in double digits.  I like Harvin because he gives you the benefit of having the potential to have a huge game, especially in leagues that allow points for return TDs.
TIGHT ENDS
RAIDERS OPPONENT, TE
The Raiders have given up 5 TDs in 3 weeks to TEs this season, 2 to Eifert, 2 to Gillmore, and they just gave up 105 yards and a TD to GARY FREAKING BARNRIDGE.  Martellus Bennett gets them this week, and after a bye it will be the Owen Daniels/Virgil Green combo, and then Antonio Gates, which leads into . . .
He is coming back from suspension so grab him a week early if he is available.  His first game ut he gets the Raiders and this offense sorely misses him.
I don’t love this pick, but he is becoming a part of their offense having over 5 targets in each game and hauling in 4 for 60 last night.  He is a middling TE2 who can be streamed based on matchup or bye-week necessities.
TEAM DST
Oakland Raiders
They play against Jimmy Clausen.  ‘Nuff said.
