Week 4 Waivy Pickups
Geronimo Allison (Green Bay Packers)
The Green Bay Packers have the pass-heaviest offense so far this season per Mike Clay of ESPN. The Green Bay Packers seem to have to deal with injury at the Wide Receiver position every year. The good thing about this is a new receiver always seems to rise. In this case Randall Cobb was out with a chest injury so Geronimo Allison stepped into the slot role and lit the Bengals secondary up for 6 receptions and 122 yards. Randall Cobb will comeback but with Green Bay leaning on Aaron Rodgers throwing the ball he will be able to spread the ball around to all his options. If Geronimo Allison is in the slot role for Packers, then he is a WR2.
Devin Funchess (Carolina Panthers)
Kelvin Benjamin went down Sunday with what looked to be a gruesome injury but his MRI showed no structural damage. With Greg Olsen out and Benjamin down for at least a week Funchess and Christian McCaffrey will be the prime targets for Cam Newton. Devin Funchess played tight end at Michigan so look for the Panthers to mix up sets to get him into likable matchups. In the absence of the star tight end and receiver Funchess has an opportunity to build a solid rapport with Cam Newton. Devin Funchess will be a WR2-WR3 for the rest of the season especially if the rapport is built.
Robby Anderson (New York Jets)
None of the Jets players are really pretty pickups but granted they will be in a lot of games where they will be getting junk time points. Robby Anderson is a player who showed up strong in the second half of the 2016 season for the Jets. This season has been modest so far but he is tied with Jermaine Kearse for most targets on the team at 18. Robby production seemed like an explosion Sunday but he had one big 69-yard play. He is still a Jet but with deeper leagues he should definitely be on the radar for a bench spot.
D’onta foreman (Houston Texans)
The time to add the Texas product is now. Foreman is still listed as the number 2 back on the depth chart but he is getting significant snaps in the Texans offense. The Texans seem to have transitioned to a read option offense against the Patriots and D’onta shined by picking up 10 touches for 90 total yards. He has already outplayed Alfred Blue for second on the depth chart which was announced last week. If he can keep capitalizing on his snaps which is at …. he will be a good flex add or bye week substitute.
Corey Clement (Philadelphia Eagles)
Keep an eye on this running back with Darren Sproles out for the season. Not worth a roster add yet.
