Paul Charchian's Top Adds - Week 4


Tyrod Taylor – He's owned in most leagues, but if he's actually available, by all means, do what's needed to get him.  He's passed every challenge, and looks like a weekly fantasy starter. Blind bidding recommendation – 25%

Ryan Fitzpatrick – I'm going to keep listing Ryan Fitzpatrick in this spot until he stops throwing multiple touchdowns in every game. Blind bidding recommendation – 5%

Mike Vick – I don't hold any delusions about Mike Vick's abilities at this late stage of his career. But there's so much talent around him, he can post meaningful fantasy points just by getting the ball into the hands of his playmakers.  He is expected to be the starter for 4-6 weeks. If it's closer to six weeks, he may end up starting all the way through the team's Week 11 bye.  Blind bidding recommendation – 1%


Lance Dunbar – I give credit to my Fantasy Football Weekly co-host Christian Peterson for identifying Lance Dunbar as a serviceable PPR running back. He's already caught 21 passes through three games. That's more than Calvin Johnson, Amari Cooper, Odell Beckham, and AJ Green.  Blind bidding recommendation – 20%

Tap Dancing Nancy – It pains me when Chris Johnson rolls up fantasy points because I know he's not a very good player.  But, fantasy football is about opportunity as much as talent.  With Andre Ellington hurt (and an ongoing injury threat), Johnson will likely continue to get carries and chances to score. Blind bidding recommendation – 10%

Thomas Rawls – It's a little unclear if Rawls' big fat stat line last week was entirely because of garbage time usage, but here's what we know for sure: He's a damn close imitator to Marshawn Lynch.  His hard-charging running style is perfect as a backup to Lynch, and my finger in the wind says that he'd get most of the work if Lynch misses this week's game. Blind bidding recommendation – 2%

Antonio Andrews – Next up for the Titans is Antonio Andrews.  The bowling ball back got the lion's share of the carries for the Titans in their near-victory last week.  To my eyes, he looked pretty pedestrian, while averaging 4.1 yards per carry.  Still, he probably is worth a roster spot while we see how the Titans' muddled backfield resolves itself. Blind bidding recommendation – 1%

Reggie Bush – As some point, Reggie Bush will be coming back to the Niners offense, and he could walk into a significant role.  The 49ers defense is awful, and it's going to force plenty of passing, and that bodes well for Bush, as the team's best pass-catching back. Blind bidding recommendation – 1%


Ty Montgomery – On Monday night, Davante Adams capped off a very disappointing 2015 by aggravating an ankle injury, and leaving the game early.  Ty Montgomery stepped into his place, and promptly scored a touchdown. Combine Adams' injury and lackluster play, and Montgomery could take his job. Blind bidding recommendation – 10%

Rishard Matthews – Every part of the Miami offense has underachieved our expectations. Except for Rishard Matthews, of all people.  We spent the offseason talking about every other Miami receiver, but not Matthews.  Yet Matthews has been the best of the bunch, with back-to-back 100-yard games. Worrisome for Matthews, DeVante Parker is now getting a lot of snaps, and that could eat into his future production.  But for now at least, Matthews belongs on rosters. Blind bidding recommendation – 5%

Victor Cruz – Victor Cruz is going to resume practicing this week, and he says that he's planning to start in the slot on Sunday against the Bills.  It's been a looooong time since Cruz was a viable fantasy starter, but his knee and calf injuries are finally behind him.  He's worth a flier, although I expect that he'll usually be the team's third receiving option. Blind bidding recommendation – 2%

Leonard Hankerson – Roddy White's usage is spiraling down the drain, to the point that he's had one target the past two weeks. Slot receiver Leonard Hankerson is the beneficiary, with 16 targets over those two weeks.  I'm not saying that Roddy White is washed up. He's still going to be a factor from time to time. But, his once bright light is fading. Blind bidding recommendation – 1%

Ted Ginn – Throughout his career, Tedd Ginn has been a very unreliable fantasy producer. But, the team has little choice but to target him frequently.  He'll be a boom or bust guy who you can start in a pinch. Blind bidding recommendation – 1%


Antonio Gates – Last year, no tight end scored more touchdowns than Antonio Gates. And he's available in 35% of leagues.  And with San Diego's interim starting tight end, Ladarius Green, suffering two concussions in two games, his status is highly murky. He's still suspended for one more week, but by securing him this week, you can pay a fraction of his cost next week. Blind bidding recommendation – 20%

Charles Clay – The Bills awarded Charles Clay an insane contract in the offseason. While he can't possibly make that deal look good, he's getting enough work to make the contract not look laugh-out-loud stupid. Clay has scored in back to back games, and has been targeted 4, 5, and 7 times in the three games so far. Tyrod Taylor has looked very promising, and Clay is a big enough part of the offense to deserve a start. Blind bidding recommendation – 5%
