Waiver Wire—Week 4
Joshua Jacobs, RB-Alabama
Jacobs ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns after Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough left Saturday’s game against Kent State with injuries. Harris’ injury may not be as serious as it looked because early reports are suggesting that he is day-to-day with an ankle sprain, but we recommend claiming Jacobs in case those initial reports are a smokescreen.
Aaron Duckworth, RB-Idaho
Duckworth ran for 90 yards and a touchdown as Idaho wrapped up their non-conference schedule with a 33-30 overtime win against UNLV Saturday night. The junior running back should have some productive games moving forward as the Vandals head into Sun Belt Conference play.
Brian Herrien and Sony Michel, RBs-Georgia
There does not seem to be any certainty about the severity of Nick Chubb’s ankle injury, which means that owners need to safeguard themselves by grabbing Herrien and/or Michel off of waivers this week.
Corey Willis, WR-Central Michigan
Heading into 2016, we knew that quarterback Cooper Rush would spread the ball around as he did last year, but if one receiver has separated himself from the others on the roster, it’s Corey Willis. Not only has the junior receiver scored in every game this season, but he has posted back-to-back 100-yard games.
John Diarse, WR-TCU
John Diarse seems to have established himself as quarterback Kenny Hill’s most reliable receiver in the absence of KaVontae Turpin. The junior receiver has 13 receptions for 236 yards and a touchdown in his last two games.
Kalib Woods, WR-Florida Atlantic
Woods could be a nice addition for teams that need help at receiver in PPR formats, as the junior receiver has posted three consecutive 15-point games and has topped 20 points twice, totaling 23 receptions and 371 receiving yards in four games.
Ishmael Zamora, WR-Baylor
After serving a three-game suspension to start the season, Zamora hauled in eight passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in his Saturday’s win over Oklahoma State. The Bears’ offense needed another receiver to complement KD Cannon and Zamora has the look of being that guy. Plus, if KD Cannon misses any time due to his groin injury, Zamora will likely become quarterback Seth Russell’s go-to receiver.
