Week 4 Deeper Sleepers: Speculating Green Bay Touches and Bye-Week Fillers

Welcome to our season-long segment at RotoBaller where we will be targeting players owned in 25% or less of Fleaflicker leagues. The Buffalo Bills are going to be hot commodities (Tyrod Taylor (43%), Karlos Williams (31%) and Charles Clay (33%)) on the waiver wire, but they are too heavily owned for this segment.

Week 4 Waiver Wire & QB Streamers: Derek Carr, Alex Smith, Blake Bortles

Last week I was only 1 for 2 in streaming picks. I'm throwing out Johnny Manziel of course, since Mike Pettine decided to go with Josh McCown. Nick Foles did not deliver against a weak secondary. That hasn't phased me though, as I'm still happy to stream against the Steelers when given the opportunity. With that... Read More

Sample size, sample size, sample size. You hear fantasy pundits mutter this phrase constantly during the early weeks of the season. What exactly does it mean though?
