Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

Add in all Leagues

Brandon Lloyd DEN | WR

OK OK, I am now truly a believer. It’s hard to accept the fact that Brandon Lloyd could be a fantasy stud, but it is looking like that might be the case. He has over 100 yards receiving in 3 out of 4 games this year, and he is now a must add in all leagues. (about 75% owned)

LeGarrette Blount TB | RB

We know this guy was on a bye week 4, but how is he still only owned in about 10% of leagues. Cadillac has looked terrible this year, and there is no doubt he is going to lose carries to Blount. We think Blount could even take over the full load at some point this season. He needs to be owned in pretty much all leagues at this point. (about 10% owned)

Ryan Torain WAS | RB

It already looked like Torain was going to start taking over a ton of carries, and now Portis is banged up. Going into week 5 it looks like Torain could get a heavy workload against the Packers. Torain is a great add right now, and he could offer value for the rest of the season. (about 15% owned)

Michael Bush OAK | RB

Surprise, surprise, McFadden got hurt on Sunday. Bush finally got some touches week 4 and he looked pretty good. He found the endzone and averaged almost 6 yards a carry. We liked Bush more then McFadden before the season, and it looks like he could have move value moving forward. (about 50% owned)

Mike Bell PHI | RB

McCoy broke a rib on Sunday, which could open the door for Bell to get some carries. It is yet to be seen how much time McCoy will miss but Bell should offer some decent short term value. There has been whispers of the Eagles trying to trade for Marshawn Lynch, but as of now Bell is the guy to own. (about 10% owned)


Add in Deeper Leagues

Kevin Kolb PHI | QB

What a mess out in Philly. It looks like Kolb is going to get to start week 5, and if he plays well he might get another start. The Eagles may not want to rush Vick back if Kolb is playing well. It’s too early to tell what’s going to happen with this one, but Kolb is an interesting pick up at this point. (about 35% owned)

Davone Bess MIA | WR

Bess found the endzone for the first time this year on Monday night, and he is quickly becoming a PPR stud. He has had 6+ catches in 3 out of the 4 games so far this year, and he is averaging over 10 yards a catch. The Fins have a bye week 5, but if you are in a PPR league it’s time to get this guy on your team. (about 20% owned)

Mike Tolbert SD | RB

Even though Ryan Mathews played week 4 Tolbert was still given the most carries. A lot of this was due to the fact that the Chargers slaughtered the Cardinals, and there was no reason to risk more injury to Mathews. So don’t look too much into these numbers, but Tolbert had an impressive Sunday. (about 65% owned)

John Kuhn GB | RB

Brandon Jackson has looked terrible so far this year, which is part of the reason why Kuhn is getting so many carries. If we had to pick between the two we would still take Jackson, but look for this to be pretty much a 50/50 timeshare. Kuhn should also see some goal line work, so he should find the endzone more over the next couple of weeks. (about 15% owned)

Paris Lenon ARI | LB

Lenon is in a new home in Arizona, and he is off to a great start this season. After only 4 games he is close to eclipsing his tackle totals from last year, and he looks to be primed for a great season. (about 25% owned)

Brian Cushing HOU | LB

Cushing has served his 4 game suspension, and he should be back on the field week 5. He had an amazing rookie year, and after watching 4 games we are sure he is ready to start hitting some people. Cushing is a must add in IDP leagues. (about 30% owned)

James Anderson CAR | LB

Anderson currently leads the league in tackles, and he is looking to be an IDP stud. Anderson’s numbers so far are ridciulous. He is averaging almost 10 tackles a game, and when you throw in a couple turnovers and a sack this guy is a must add if your league starts defensive players. (about 25% owned)

Chicago CHI | DEF

The Bears are going up against the Panthers week 5, and they could have a good day on defense. Not only will Carolina be starting a rookie quarterback, but they lost their best receiver to a high ankle sprain. This should make Chicago’s D a nice play week 5. (about 55% owned)

Add to Watch List

Harry Douglas ATL | WR

Douglas has seen a decent amount of action so far this season, and he had a solid game on Sunday. We don’t think he is worth a roster spot just yet, but he should be added to your radar. (about 5% owned)

Max Hall ARI | QB

The Cardinals got blown out on Sunday so it is yet to be seen if this is an official QB switch, but for now it looks like Hall may have taken the job from Anderson. The Cardinals offense hasn’t looked that great, so even if the job is Hall’s we doubt he will have much value. (about 5% owned)

Mike Thomas JAC | WR

Every time Sims-Walker throws up a goose egg Thomas is there waiting to catch some passes. He had 5 catches for 68 yards, and he is slowly becoming an interesting fantasy player. He also handles the punt return duties for the Jags, so in leagues that count return yards he gets an added bonus. (about 10% owned)

Joel Dreessen HOU | TE

With Owen Daniels still slowed by his off season knee surgery, Dreessen could have a little bit of value. He had a good game week 4, and there is a chance he continues to get some looks until Daniels is back up to speed. (about 5% owned)

Derrick Ward HOU | RB

Looks like we have a Derrick Ward sighting. Ward looked great filling in for Arian Foster who was held out of the first quarter for missing a meeting. Ward had 80 yards on 12 carries, and he found the endzone. We wouldn’t run out and pick him up, but it does look like he would be the guy to add if Foster went down. (about 5% owned)

Steve Johnson BUF | WR

Johnson has been very consistent this year, and he could be in line for a couple break out games. He has a touchdown in each of his last two games, which makes him someone to keep an eye on. I know the Bills are a terrible team, but they should be playing from behind every week. Which should open the door for guys like Johnson to get some second half junk yards. (about 5% owned)
