Well we are done with the second week of 2023 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 4 Waiver Wire pickups. If you were caught by any of the injuries from this past week- this should help you navigate your way through.
Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside-depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
CJ Stroud (HOU) 7.4% rostered
The rookie QB, CJ Stroud, continues to impress in Houston, validating his status as the #2 overall pick in the NFL draft. Stroud has made history as the first player to accumulate at least 900 passing yards, four passing touchdowns, and zero interceptions in his first three career starts. Scoring 20 or more fantasy points in two consecutive games, Stroud is emerging as a potential weekly starter.
Jameis Winston (NO) 0.1% rostered
With Derek Carr sidelined due to a shoulder injury, Jameis Winston could become a viable fantasy starter, given the offensive weapons at his disposal. Winston showcased his deep ball prowess in previous seasons, with a career-high of 5,109 passing yards. Keep an eye on Winston, especially with an upcoming matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5.
**IF YOU HAVE IR SPOTS** Kyler Murray (ARI) 14.6% rostered
While Kyler Murray’s return from the PUP list may not happen in Week 5 as initially hoped, he remains a valuable asset to hold, especially if your league offers IR spots. Murray’s dual-threat ability places him in the elite QB1 category in fantasy, making him a worthy addition for the long term.
