Week 4: Waiver Wire Pickups
Matthews was a favorite sleeper pick of many fantasy analysts this offseason, and he showed why Sunday. Matthews caught two red-zone touchdowns en route to an eight-catch, 59-yard, two-score stat line. Matthews is still very raw in terms of route-running but has tremendous physical attributes. The rookie from Vanderbilt is 6-foot-3 with 4.4 speed and a 35.5-inch vertical leap. With that size and jumping ability, he has a chance to develop into Nick Foles' preferred red-zone target. He's already in the process of passing WR Riley Cooper as the Eagles' No. 2 WR and looks like a high-risk, high-reward WR3 in fantasy.MyFantasyLeague availability: 100%
WR T.Y. Hilton left the Colts' Week 3 matchup early with an ankle injury. It's unclear if Hilton will miss time with the ailment, but in his absence, both Hakeem Nicks and Moncrief saw a bump in targets. Moncrief was the Colts' third-round pick in the 2014 draft and is a physical specimen. He boasts 6-foot-2 size, 4.40 speed and a tremendous 39.5-inch vertical. He's still behind Hilton, Reggie Wayne and Nicks on the team's depth chart, but if Hilton's injury keeps him out for any length of time, Moncrief will have an opportunity to shine. He's a speculative deep-league add with a high ceiling and a lot of risk.MyFantasyLeague availability: 100%
Graham missed the Texans' Week 1 game with a back injury and has been quiet in his first two games. But he's the unquestioned No. 1 TE in Houston and finished with five catches Sunday. Fantasy owners are getting hit hard at the tight end position entering Week 4 with injuries to Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis and Dennis Pitta, and a bye weeks for Jordan Cameron and Julius Thomas. Graham isn't an optimal TE1 in fantasy, but he's good enough as a one-week fill-in. Don't plan on him leading your team to the playoffs, but he should get you through a tight spot if you're desperate.
