The fourth week of NFL games is over and the waiver wire is looking surprisingly dry for the first time this season. Nevertheless, there is still some value out there for those that have the roster space. A majority of the fantasy football waiver wire adds we recommend this week are the same ones we recommended last week, which goes to show just how useful this article can be for getting the jump on potential adds.
Be sure to check out our “Carryovers from Last Week” section because in most cases those guys hold the most value.
Quick Note: Not all players that had strong Week 4 outings are on this list, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t have value. If you have any questions about free agents not discussed in this article, head over to the forums and we’ll help you with the answers. If you are wondering who to cut to pick these one of these players up, stay tuned for our Week 5Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Cut List.
WIDE RECEIVERS—PICK THEM UP
Kenny Britt, WR, Tennessee Titans
It’s absurd that we have to point this out again but Kenny Britt is still available in 32% of Fleaflficker leagues. He should be 100% owned in most formats. He had 11 targets while playing limited snaps and running limited routes in Week 3. A minor ankle injury kept him off the field this week which led to a lot of owners dropping him. Take advantage! He will be a WR2 when healthy.
Consider Adding In: 8-team, 10-team, 12-team, and 14-team Leagues

Andre Roberts, WR, Arizona Cardinals
Andre Roberts has been coming in and out of fantasy relevancy all season but he just can’t seem to stick there. After an excellent Week 1 where he caught five balls for 54 yards and a touchdown, he disappeared in Week 2 with only a single catch for two yards (though it was a touchdown catch). In Week 3 he came out and caught three balls for 55 yards. It was this week that he really made himself a valuable fantasy football commodity. Roberts caught six balls for 118 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Roberts has become Kevin Kolb’s official deep threat and he is doing it well.
The quickly improving chemistry between Kolb and Roberts can only lead to more good things. Roberts won’t see a huge amount of targets weekly but he will have a few chances every week to make a big play and that is enough to make him worth owning. He’s available in 89% of Fleaflicker leagues, however Roberts should be one of the first guys claimed this week. If you need a wide receiver, make sure to put an early claim on Roberts.
Consider Adding In: 10, 12-team and 14-team Leagues; especially in TD-heavy formats
