The 2020 NFL season is now 4 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire and hoping they can help you secure a playoff spot. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-50 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Quarterbacks for Week 5.
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Carolina Panthers
Bridgewater completed 26 of 37 passes for 276 yards with two touchdowns and an interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, along with 32 rushing yards and another touchdown in the ground. He has completed over 70 percent of his passes in three straight games, and he has topped 260 yards through the air in three of four overall.

The matchup is as good at it gets for Bridgewater in Week 5. The Atlanta Falcons entered Week 4 allowing the most fantasy points to quarterbacks, and they get Aaron Rodgers on Monday night to complete the week’s slate of games.
All the way to a Week 13 bye, the only particularly tough matchups on Bridgewater’s schedule are Week 6 (Chicago Bears), Week 9 (Kansas City Chiefs) and Week 10 (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), and in the latter two cases he’s lined up to be throwing plenty.
Bridgewater will be a top-end streamer in Week 5, and for many weeks after that. He’s roster-worthy as a QB2 in 12-team leagues.
