Week 4 brought about some interesting injuries which make this week’s waiver run a little more exciting for struggling teams. Another injury that should be brought up is Alvin Kamara, who was a late scratch. Although he was not mentioned as a game-time decision, he was scratched and managers who inserted him into the line-up woke up to a surprise scratch.
Honestly, if entering a league with a cash entry fee, this is on the fantasy manager, no excuses as Latavius Murray was elevated from the practice roster the previous day.
The edge remains in high-dollar leagues for those who work harder and are more prepared and that is one of the main reasons familiar names are at the top of the leaderboard, not luck or number of entries.
All the running backs getting an increase in opportunity being largely unrostered, combined with some players which may have been dropped by other managers last week, allows managers to get aggressive in improving teams.
