Week 4 Pickups

    Owners lucky enough to pick up Glen Coffee can enjoy a cup (above) Sunday as they watch him face a porous Rams' defense.

Week 4 marks the beginning of bye weeks and with as many injuries as there are this year you will need to work the waiver wire with great accuracy so that your team isn’t left with crap in your starting lineup. It’s not good for your team or the environment. Here are my top pickups for week 4:

Glen Coffee, RB, San Francisco

Drink him up while you can. OK, so there could have been any number of jokes used here and I probably didn’t use the best one in my column, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is the starter for the 49ers the next three weeks while Frank Gore nurses a foot sprain. Coffee looked good in the preseason and is in no danger of losing carries to Michael Robinson. He is by far the best pickup of the week.

Tashard Choice, RB, Dallas

Another RB who benefits from injuries. Choice got the bulk of the work last week thanks to Marion Barber being ruled out before game time and Felix Jones tweaking his knee eight carries into the game. Choice did not disappoint with 22 touches for 118 yards and a score. With Denver, Kansas City, Atlanta and Seattle as the next four matchups, look for Choice to be a useful play even if Marion Barber or Felix Jones returns to the lineup.

Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jacksonville

Torry Holt who? Sims-Walker is emerging as the number one wide out in Jacksonville, and any top receiver is worth owning in any league that I’m in. Garrard and the Jaguars have been getting some garbage time fantasy points and Walker has been benefitting with 12 catches for 187 yards and a score in the last two weeks. Consider yourself informed.

Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia

Not enough people own this guy and yet he keeps putting up great numbers. So far on the season he has 22 catches for 245 yards and two scores. It’s not like he has done it all in one game either because he has at least six catches in every game so far. Obviously he has a bye week this week, but if you can spare the bench spot I would stash him and start him the rest of the season.

Bengals D/ST

I’m all in on the Bengals this season. Their defense looks very good and it features one of the best corners in the league in Leon Hall. They are somewhat susceptible to the run game, but I think that if the matchup is right this squad can be a very nice fantasy option. By the way, the Bengals face the Cleveland Browns this week.
