2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 IDP Waiver Wire

on

Welcome back for a look at some 2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 IDP Waiver Wire adds you can make to improve your team!

Whether it’s players underperforming or filling in for injuries, we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our teams. I was able to dig deep for some gems in last week’s waiver wire article. I’m back again to hopefully bring another great asset to your team.

Usually while going through waivers I’d go by position group, but this week I’ll be going about it a little differently. The list will progress from low priority to high priority adds.

High priority will be must-adds. These are players you can throw right into your lineup on a weekly basis. Low priority players will be more speculative adds, players I like that have proved to be valuable, but how valuable is yet to be determined. These low-to-high priorities will reflect how I’m attacking adding these players in my personal leagues.

Low Priority Adds

Nasir Adderly, DB, Los Angeles Chargers

Week 3 Stats: 9 Tackles (7 Solo)

Nasir Adderly has shown he’s not afraid to get involved and tackle the ball carrier. My main concern is his snap volume. With massive fluctuations between Weeks 1-3 (27, 76, 46), this could just be how the Chargers are deploying their slew of defensive back talent. A steadier high snap volume every week would ease my mind.

I would also like to see if he could start being a bit more of a playmaker like he was in college. He’s started showing off what made him a highly-touted prospect coming out of college, now can he put it all together?

Julian Love, DB, New York Giants

Week 3 Stats: 11 Tackles (10 Solo)

Love is an interesting case as he was drafted to the corner position. However, after being in a pinch at the position at the end of last season he was converted to Free Safety. Oddly enough he performed rather well at the position and was set to start there at the beginning of this year. Then the team signed DB Logan Ryan and I thought he’d quickly unseat the incumbent Love. That’s proven not to be the case.

This defense has shown it can’t get off the field, leaving plenty of opportunity for multiple players. While DB Jabrill Peppers has yet to really live up to the hype this season as he’s been battling injuries. I’m curious to see how that all shakes out when he gets back to full health.

Week 3 Stats: 8 Tackles (6 Solo), 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 Forced Fumble

Mykal Walker relieved injured LB Foyesade Oluokon after he left in Week 2 due to an injury. It is quite possible once Oluokon returns that Walker could quickly return to a minimal role. However, I’m very curious to see if that is the case.

I watched this game while the Falcons give up yet another lead. I will say I thought a lone bright spot to this defense was Walker. He seemed to be all over the field and if he wasn’t the one making the tackle he was the next one there. His forced fumble almost resulted in a crucial turning point for his team. If the ball wouldn’t have immediately found its way back into Chicago’s arms, Atlanta’s defense could’ve possibly recovered and been able to ice the game.

Head Coach Dan Quinn is absolutely playing for his job at this point. Although, I do believe it is a foregone conclusion that he’s done. He will play whichever player who he feels gives that defense the best shot to stop an offense.

Medium Priority Adds

Alton Robinson, DL, Seattle Seahawks

Week 3 Stats: 3 Tackles (3 Solo), 2 Tackles for Loss, 1 Sack

Who. The. Heck. Is. This. Guy? Alton Robinson is the Seahawks 2019 Fifth Round Draft Pick. Robinson was assumed to be an athletic developmental project. However, due to a slew of injuries on the defensive side, Robinson got his number called and he did not disappoint.

Rushing the passer is easily the Seahawks greatest weakness on defense. After Bruce Irvin tore his ACL last week the Seahawks were left with a major hole to fill. Yet Robinson might be the answer.

My concern is that Robinson will be inconsistent with how raw he is as a talent. However, I think his upside is huge. You may not plug him in right away, but you might be able to throw him in as a spot start in a good match up. Coupled with the way the Seahawks have started the season on the offensive side yields to a pass-rushing game script for Robinson to attack.

Ty Summers, LB, Green Bay Packers

Week 3 Stats: 9 Tackles (6 Solo)

Ty Summers slotted in for injured LB Christian Kirksey. While Summers isn’t a 1-for-1 replacement to Kirksey, the position has yielded itself to plenty of tackles and needs to be started, whoever that linebacker may be.

If Kirksey is healthy he’s an afterthought. However, the way they threw him in and didn’t have to completely change their defense against a team that’s been deemed a Super Bowl competitor, led by a QB deemed a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer, speaks volumes to the team’s confidence in Summers.

High Priority Adds

Kyzir White, LB/DB, Los Angeles Chargers

Week 3 Stats: 11 Tackles (8 Solo), 1 Tackle for Loss

Kyzir White took over for LB Drue Tranquill after being placed on IR, ending his season. In his time starting, White has yet to disappoint. White plays the lightning role of LB Kenneth Murray‘s thunder.

Since taking over for Tranquill he’s played all but one snap. White is an easy must add, especially if he’s DB eligible in your league.

Carl Lawson, DL, Cincinnati Bengals

Week 3 Stats: 8 Tackles (4 Solo), 1 Tackle for Loss, 2 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble  

Carl Lawson might finally be proving to be a reliable asset every week. With an odd career arc to this point, battling back from an injury last year he was inconsistent. After three weeks of the season, he’s on track for a career year.



Granted, in the two games he’s flashed in he was facing poor offensive lines. However, if he’s going to consistently stuff the stat sheet against poor offensive lines it’ll be easy to know when to start him as well as when to bench him. He’s a must-add if you need help streaming the position.
