Waiver Wire Adds
Jordan Howard - Chicago Bears - RB
Jeremy Langford is out 4-to-6 weeks, and Jordan Howard becomes an immediete plug and play for the next few weeks. It is a small sample size for Howard, but he has certainly been the more efficient back in Chicago. Howard rushed for over six YPC at Indiana in his Junior season. He was a talented back in college, and there certainly is some potential. He will face the Lions, Colts, Bears, Packers over the next four weeks. Chicago's offense certainly isn't a good one right now, but Howard showed the ability to work out of the passing game in a come from behind effort against Dallas.
Anquan Boldin - Detroit Lions - WR
Detroit simply can't run the ball, and throwing with Matthew Stafford is all they have. Now Marvin Jones is the top guy right now, but Anquan Boldin has back-to-back games with a touchdown. He has a 72% completion rate with Stafford and has grabbed both of his touchdowns in the red zone. I usually worry about a lot of weapons on one team, but Detroit has turned into a high volume passing attack. He is solid option over the next few weeks playing the Bears, Eagles, Rams, and Redskins.
Week 4 Streaming Options
Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens - QB - Raiders
While Marcus Mariota didn't light up this Oakland secondary, the two quarterbacks before did. Oakland has allowed the third most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Baltimore is averaging the 9th most pass attempts per game due to their lack of run game. Flacco is working with a trio of weapons again, and while it may not be the prettiest, it is working for him. Once again, Flacco is a great streaming option. You can also use Brian Hoyer as well. Detroit has allowed the second most fantasy points per game.
Other Suggestions: Brian Hoyer
Jordan Howard - Chicago Bears - RB - Lions
As mentioned above, Jordan Howard will be a featured play this week for me against a defense allowing a 5.1 YPC to opposing running backs in 2016. They have also allowed the fifth most receptions to opposing backs. Howard is in store for a nice matchup, and with the Carey and Langford injuries, you can count on him full a workload.
Other Suggestions: Chris Thompson
Michael Thomas - New Orleans Saints - WR - @ Chargers
Michael Thomas has earned the Drew Brees trust, and with Willie Snead missing Week 3, and possibly Week 4 -- you can give the rookie a look here in a matchup where Brees and company should be throwing a ton. He will likely slip away from the better corners for San Diego. He has 17 catches on 22 targets this season, and scored his first career touchdown on Monday night.
Other Suggestions: Phillip Dorsett, Jamison Crowder
Kyle Rudolph - Minnesota - TE - Giants
First of all, Zach Miller is an awesome pickup as long as Brian Hoyer is starting. Right now, Kyle Rudolph is the guy I am going out and grabbing, and possibly keeping. New York still has their issues with tight ends, and Rudolph has had 27 targets through three games. Five of those have come in the red zone for two touchdowns. With no Adrian Peterson, Minnesota should continue to throw the ball a little bit more.
Other Suggestions: Zach Miller
Washington Redskins - D/ST - Browns
We can pick on the Browns right now with just about anyone. Washington took a hit losing DeAngelo Hall, but this is still a defense that is underperforming. A matchup with the Browns can certainly fix that. Cleveland has allowed the eighth most fantasy points per game to opposing defenses this season. Washington is averaging 1.7 takeaways per game this season, which is right around the league average.
Other Suggestions: Dallas Cowboys
