Fantasy football Week 4: Add and drop
Each week I’ll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define “widely available” as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free-agent pool than collecting dust on your roster.Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week.Here are my best bets off the waiver wire for Week 4:———ADDWR Justin Jefferson, Vikings (ESPN: 34%; Yahoo: 31%): This past weekend was when members of one of the best wide receiver draft classes of all-time began to assert itself.
