It’s time for the Week 4 fantasy football waiver wire. Fantasy waivers can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 4.

Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.

Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.

Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)

Quarterback

Jameis Winston, TB (5-10%) — It wasn’t the best start to the season for Winston, but he showed in Week 3 that he is capable of putting up QB1 numbers. He’s in play for the streamer crowd.

Daniel Jones, NYG (5-10%) — That was quite a debut for the rookie signal-caller. Don’t expect those numbers every week, but Jones does offer fantasy upside with both his arm and his ability to scramble.

Running back

Devin Singletary, BUF (15-30%) — Sure, he’s injured, but Singletary is still an excellent stash. He’s made the most of his opportunities this season. It’s only a matter of time before he takes over.

Darrel Williams, KC (15-30%) — With Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy banged up, Darrel Williams carried the load for the Chiefs last week. He’s a solid pickup this week with a shot to lead the backfield yet again.

Wide receiver

D.K. Metcalf, SEA (15-30%) — The rookie wideout has been Russell Wilson‘s favorite deep target this season and is still available in over 30% of leagues.

D.J. Chark Jr., JAX (15-30%) — The breakout season continued for Chark last week Thursday night. While we don’t want to overvalue Chark. He’s still an upside WR3 in fantasy.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB (15-30%)Aaron Rodgers looked Valdes-Scantling’s way nine times in Week 3. Look for the volume to continue this week against a shaky Eagles secondary.

Tight end

Will Dissly, SEA (3-5%) — It’s a rough week if you’re in need of a tight end. Dissly is the best bet after he posted another solid stat line in Week 3.

Regular leagues (12 teams)

Quarterback

Jacoby Brissett, IND (3-5%) — The Colts signal-caller has been efficient to start the season and is in play as a plus streamer against the Raiders this week.
