That honor belongs to handcuff RBs Damien Williams and Samaje Perine and sleeper QB Trey Lance…we expect.

There might be as many as three gamers (Williams, Perine, Lance) value prime waiver claims this week. There may be as few as zero. As a result of the Bears have stated they will not present an replace on Montgomery’s harm till after Wednesday’s apply, chances are high you will should chunk the bullet on Williams (who’s coping with a thigh bruise himself). We all know Montgomery’s harm is not overly severe, however he nonetheless may miss a number of video games. Mixon and Garoppolo do not sound like they’re going to miss multiple recreation, on the most, so Perine may nonetheless be value it, however as tough because it could be, you most likely should let another person have Lance when you’ve got a top-three declare. The relative worth of all three of those guys comes right down to your staff wants and the way a lot you imagine within the backups.

High fantasy soccer waiver wire pickups for Week 5

Until in any other case famous, solely gamers owned in fewer than 50 p.c of Yahoo leagues thought of.

Samaje Perine, RB, Bengals. It was initially reported on Monday that Joe Mixon was “week-to-week” with an ankle harm after final Thursday’s recreation towards Jacksonville. Later within the day, Bengals coach Zac Taylor stated Mixon is “day-to-day” and can apply to start out the week. Clearly, that is much better information for Mixon’s outlook, however chances are high, we can’t know if he is suiting up in Week 5 till a lot later within the week. You may bear in mind Mixon was “week-to-week” for 10 weeks final yr whereas lacking the ultimate 10 video games due to a foot harm. It is powerful to know whether or not Perine is value a prime waiver declare or will not even have worth this coming week, however chances are high, you will must bid for him in order for you him. It is doable he is the Bengals’ beginning RB towards Inexperienced Bay in Week 5 and perhaps even Detroit in Week 6. He appears value including on the prospect Mixon continues to battle with harm.

Hunter Renfrow, WR, Raiders. Renfrow continues to function because the Raiders prime large receiver, and perhaps that is the week fantasy house owners take discover. He caught six of a team-high eight targets for 45 yards and a rating on Monday evening, giving him at the very least 5 catches in each recreation this season and touchdowns in two straight contests. Renfrow would not put up massive yards, however clearly he has worth in PPR leagues. He is a worthwhile WR3 in most matchups, and he ought to proceed to thrive in Week 5 towards a below-average Bears protection.

Jared Cook dinner, TE, Chargers. Cook dinner is owned in simply 47 p.c of Yahoo leagues regardless of the dearth of respectable tight ends this yr. That share will go up after he caught six-of-seven targets for 70 yards and a TD on Monday evening. He is been beneath common this yr, however he is had at the very least 5 targets in three-of-four video games and performs in an explosive offense. He has loads of upside going ahead, although a Week 5 matchup towards Cleveland will not be a great place to make use of him. He is nonetheless value including, as he can be a prime streamer in Week 6 towards a Baltimore protection that entered final week tied for essentially the most fantasy factors allowed to TEs and gave up one other TE rating to Noah Fant.

Josh Gordon, WR, Chiefs. We have already stated lots about Gordon’s fantasy outlook, however this is a reminder that is value taking over a flier on after signing with the Chiefs. Sure, Gordon’s greatest days are lengthy behind him, however he could not have gone to a greater scenario. He’ll be no higher than a 3rd choice for the NFL’s scariest offense, however that might nonetheless yield some massive video games given the quarterback he’ll have throwing him the ball. At 30, he may not be fully washed up, so if he can keep on the sector (a giant “if”), Gordon may have worth.

Rashod Bateman, WR, Ravens. In shallow leagues, Bateman is an afterthought, however in deep leagues, he is value a flier. The primary-round pick of Minnesota has missed the primary 4 video games due to a core harm, however there is a good probability he returns in Week 5. The Ravens passing recreation has been productive this yr, and whereas Bateman may take some time to get acclimated, he has loads of upside. Seize him early within the week so you may stash him in your IR till it’s important to make one other roster transfer. T.Y. Hilton (neck), Tre’Quan Smith (knee), and Michael Gallup (calf) are additionally eligible to return off the IR this week, so it would not damage to stash one in the event you want receiver depth. 

For extra waiver/free agent options, together with flex RBs Damien Williams and Kenny Gainwell, veteran WRs Jamison Crowder and Randall Cobb, and rising TEs Dalton Schultz and Dawson Knox, take a look at our full Week 5 listing.
