Week 4 Waiver Wire and Flier's


Shaun Hill – If you’ve been riding Big Ben or Andrew Luck thus far or you haven’t been thrilled with your QB play of late, then you should take a definite waiver and or flier on Shaun Hill.  Matthew Stafford won’t practice all week and his status won’t be known til Friday, but if he sits; Shaun Hill is an instant top 12 – 15 QB.  Shaun knows the offense well and has proved very serviceable.  With Calvin Johnson and the emergence of a running game with Leshoure, Shaun; if starting could be the difference maker in your game this week.


Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller – Reggie Bush hasn’t been ruled out yet, but he has injured the same he did before. If you are a Reggie owner or looking for a plug and play, Daniel Thomas may be it and it’s not because he is a better RB than Miller;  in week 3 Thomas played 42 snaps vs. 17 for Lamar Miller- but  simply the Dolphins don’t trust Miller in pass protection.  This will likely be a workload split should Reggie sit, but the back to own if Reggie is out is unfortunately Thomas because of touches, but the upside may lie with Miller.

RB Flier

Tashard Choice – Both Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller may be out this week and or limited if returning from injury. Choice is not a long term solution, but if you’ve been riding with Donald Brown or one of the many Steeler RB’s, then Choice can help you this week as a low end flex with upside if both Fred and CJ are out.


Leonard Hankerson – Mike Shanahan said yesterday that Leonard has earned a full time starting gig. Question is what side will he be on? If Garcon is out again this week, he plays the X position and the first read for RGIII, when Garcon comes back he will play opposite of him. In 3 games Hankerson has 6 catches, 124 yards and a touchdown. When Garcon is out, he has flex or WR3 appeal and is a serviceable bye week fill in the rest of the way.

WR Flier

Kendall Wright – With Kenny Britt coming back healthy and Nate Washington on the field, defenses can’t pay much attention to Kendall Wright in the slot. He got 11 targets in week 3.  Tennessee has a tough upcoming run schedule so they are going to have to pass to move the ball and Locker showed last week against Detroit that at times he can do just that and having the aforementioned WR’s on the field only helps him.


Greg Olsen – Perhaps an owner in your league gave up early on Olsen for Pitta or Bennett last week because of Olsen’s poor showing against N.O.  Bouncing back from that effort, Olsen had 14 targets, 7 receptions and 98 yards.  He’s clearly a part of Chud’s offense and a valuable target against defenses focusing on the Panthers run and Steve Smith.

TE Flier

Heath Miller – He’s on bye this week so some people may skip over him thinking he will be there next week, but if he is on your waiver wire he makes a nice stash for your starting TE bye week having already served his this week. In 3 weeks he has 20 targets, 15 receptions and 4 TD’s.
