Slim pickings on the waiver wire this week.

No relatively-unowned fantasy players really stood out in week 4, so there may not be as much action in your league this week. A week like this is a good time to start chatting up other owners with potential trades.

A few players who might be worth a look on the wire, if you need a free agent:


Kyle Orton, Broncos (341 – 2 – 1)
Orton continues to put up solid numbers as a fantasy quarterback. At this point, he should be owned in all leagues.

Sam Bradford, Rams (289 – 2 – 1)
The kid really looks great in St. Louis, picking up a big win for the franchise against Seattle yesterday.

Kevin Kolb, Eagles (201 – 1  – 1)
There is a chance Kolb was cut in your fantasy league(s) after Michael Vick stole his job. Now, it looks like it will be his job again … for the time being.

Running Backs

Derrick Ward, Texans (12 – 80 – 1)
Only for really, really deep leagues. Ward is the handcuff for Arian Foster owners after a good first half yesterday.

Michael Bush, Raiders (7 – 40 – 1)
Darren McFadden finally went down with an injury (hamstring), so now it is Bush’s time to shine.

Ryan Torain, Redskins (18 – 70 – 1)
Clinton Portis seems to run off the field every other play with an ailment. Torain clearly is the next in line for this job.

Mike Tolbert, Chargers (16 – 100 – 1)
Ryan Mathews returned, ran well and scored a TD, but Tolbert still is a factor in this backfield.

Wide Receivers

Harry Douglas, Falcons (3 – 59 – 1)
Someone other than Roddy White has to step up in this passing game.

Brandon Lloyd, Broncos (11 – 115)
Maybe Lloyd’s 2010 campaign is for real after another great fantasy day.

Here are today’s great reads:

  • Running-back-by-committees have changed the fantasy football landscape. Some would argue for the better, some for the worse. However you fall in that argument, it looks like RBBCs are here to stay. At least, if nothing else, it gives fantasy owners a ton of options at the position. [FanHouse]
