Fantasy football waiver wire advice for Week 4 of the 2017 season. The parameters and assumptions of this weekly waiver wire advice column can be found in the preseason introduction. Let’s review my previous recommendations, and then see what we can scrounge up for Week 4 waiver wire advice.
A full analysis of each of these players would take more time than either you or I have. Fortunately, most situations are straightforward. If they’re not, please hit me up in the comments. In brief:
Season to Date Waiver Wire RecapPresented by the week and in the order in which they were recommended.

|Sam Bradford||Preseason||Will be a viable starter when he returns from injury.|
|Charcandrick West||Preseason||Safe to drop.|
|Sterling Shepard||1||Solid hold; see below.|
|Austin Hooper||1||No need to roster in most formats. Matchup based play.|
|Jamaal Charles||1||Solid hold; see below.|

- Sam Bradford should be a solid streamer when he returns.
- Marqise Lee has 33 percent of Jacksonville’s air yards and is a weekly candidate for a flex spot. Allen Hurns has a solid 21 percent share of air yards and decent TD upside. These two should have rest of season value.
- Jermaine Kearse was overshadowed by Robby Anderson but should still have more value rest of season.
- Tarik Cohen is arguably an RB2 or flex option with rest of season value.
- Javorius Allen looks like he’ll have rest of season value too, despite a poor Week 3.
- Charles Clay should be rostered and is a candidate to start most weeks.
- The rest of the TEs recommended so far may have streaming appeal based on matchup but probably don’t need to be rostered in most formats.
- Some of the rest will be covered below, as part of Week 4 waivers.
