The 2016 NFL season is just two weeks old and while many might think it’s premature to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire, they are wrong. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season and ends up being a top-20 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 Wide Receivers for Week 4.
Terrelle Pryor, WR, Cleveland Browns
Owned in 21% of Yahoo Leagues
As one of the last men standing in Cleveland’s offense, Pryor had an all-around role Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. To go along with eight receptions (on 14 targets) for 144 yards, Pryor also had four carries for 21 yards and hints he could see action under center came to fruition as he went 3-for-5 for 35 yards.

Over the first three games this season, Pryor has been targeted 31 times. (14 receptions). Corey Coleman (hand) is out for awhile, and Josh Gordon is suspended or one more game, so for at least Week 4 Pryor will be operating as the Browns’ No. 1 wide receiver.
Regardless of who is under center, Cleveland is sure to find themselves with pass-oriented game scripts more often than not. So as long as Pryor retains a prominent role, and barring injury he should, he is a WR3/WR4 in 12-team standard leagues with weekly upside. —Brad Berreman
