Fantasy Football Week 4 is here and some waiver pickup players and wire options to check out include names like Ted Ginn Jr., Antonio Andrews, Allen Hurns, Gary Barnidge, Ty Montgomery, David Johnson, Travis Benjamin, Leonard Hankerson, Tyler Eifert, Derek Carr, Michael Crabtree, Michael Vick, Darren Sproles, Ronnie Hillman and Donte Moncrief for fantasy owners.

Week 4 has some notable players potentially dealing with injuries like Tevin Coleman, Davante Adams, DeMarco Murray and Andre Ellington and that makes Devonta Freeman, Ty Montgomery, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews and David Johnson solid pickups. Devin Funchess is also banged up and that gives Ted Ginn a boost for the Carolina Panthers. Ginn led the team in targets last week and he could be a solid sleeper pickup for teams in need of WR depth in Week 4.

The Titans offense has been surprisingly filled with fantasy options this season so far and Antonio Andrews is a name to watch. Andrews was way under the radar coming into the season and he did not make an impact until Week 3. Andrews actually had more touches than Bishop Sankey last week and while that may not happen every week, fantasy owners could try and ride his hot hand. Andrews had 49 yards on 12 carries and he also added a touchdown in the game against the Colts. The Titans are on a bye, but he is worth a grab for anyone in need of an RB.

Allen Hurns has emerged as a solid option for the Jaguars this season and he comes in after putting up 70 yards last week, including a 59-yard TD. Hurns has not put up great numbers this season with just 11 catches so far, but he is starting alongside Allen Robinson for the Jags and could continue to get looks from Blake Bortles as a WR3 or WR4 for fantasy owners.

Ty Montgomery is a solid sleeper option moving forward, as Davante Adams has not been able to stay healthy this season so far. James Jones has emerged as the number two option for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers behind Randall Cobb, but with Adams injured, Montgomery now can slot into that number three spot. Montgomery has just six catches in three games this season, but he could get more looks if Adams is out and he also adds value returning kicks.

Barnidge is going to be a hit or miss player each week, but he hit last week and for anyone in need of a replacement with Gronk on a bye, Barnidge is a solid pick. Barnidge had his biggest game last week with six catches for 105 yards and a touchdown and a promising number for him is the 10 targets he had on offense. Barnidge has 10 catches this season and could be a solid play against the Chargers.

Leonard Hankerson has been playing well and it looks like he is going to be more of an impact player over Roddy White this season. Hankerson could be the number two now with Julio Jones in front and he comes in after making three catches last week and he has 11 catches for 138 yards this season in three games for the Falcons. Tyler Eifert, Derek Carr, Michael Crabtree, Michael Vick, Darren Sproles, Ronnie Hillman and Donte Moncrief are also players to check out.
