Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: TE - Week 4 (with video)

by Herija C. Green on September 26, 2012 @ 10:00:00 PDT


If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.

Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Note: Percentage of polled leagues in which player is available in parentheses

Fantasy football free agents: Priority additions

The following players should be high on your radar and are worthy of being added immediately to your fantasy football team.

Oakland Raiders TE Brandon Myers
Out of this world: Myers

Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings (37 percent)

We've been touting Rudolph in this space for weeks now and he keeps proving us right; in Week 3 the second-year man was on the receiving end of both of Christian Ponder's touchdown throws, which gives him three on the season. He clearly has his quarterback's trust and is the team's second-best weapon in the passing game. He should be owned in all leagues.

Fantasy football free agents: Look to acquire

The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.

Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders (79 percent)

Now, I'm not exactly what you'd call a "scientist," (please make the air quotes when reading) but I have concocted a theory that Oakland's tight end does in fact have his own gravitational pull. Skeptical? Well, how else do you explain 15 targeted passes and 15 receptions through three games? You can't, that's how. So, if you're stuck with an underperforming player at the position consider a stay on Planet Myers.

Fantasy football free agents: One-week plays

The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

NEW - Marcedes Lewis, Jacksonville Jaguars (77 percent)

After a solid start Lewis has been M.I.A. the past two weeks (one catch for five yards). He has a shot to get back on track against the Bengals this weekend, though, as that group has allowed 6.00 catches and 80.7 yards per game to the position.
