Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243445 BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, New England BenJarvus+Green-Ellis%2C+RB%2C+New+England Fantasy Football

He ran for his second-highest career rushing yards (98) and received the most carries for the second straight contest. He averaged a robust 6.1 yards from 16 carries.

Green-Ellis also recorded his second contest of at least 100 total yards after adding one catch for six yards. After the trade of Laurence Maroney and the season-ending injury to Kevin Faulk, Green-Ellis is poised to become New England’s featured back. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243426 Lance Moore, WR, New Orleans Lance+Moore%2C+WR%2C+New+Orleans Fantasy Football

Owners who need to find Week 4 bye replacements for Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Percy Harvin or Dwayne Bowe can look at Moore as a possibility. He had six catches for a career-high 149 yards and two scores.

Of note, New Orleans' next foe, Carolina, has allowed six touchdown passes during the first three contests. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243427 Laurence Maroney, RB, Denver Laurence+Maroney%2C+RB%2C+Denver Fantasy Football

Fantasy owners of Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles, Marion Barber, Felix Jones, Thomas Jones and Cadillac Williams may be looking for a bye-week replacement to claim. Maroney, recently traded to Denver, is a candidate to start.

Maroney received the majority of carries among Denver’s backs with 12 handoffs in Week 3. He also caught two passes for 40 yards and received all three goal-line carries. As the bigger physical presence, Maroney could still be featured as the inside runner when Knowshon Moreno returns. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243465 Kenneth Darby, RB, St. Louis Kenneth+Darby%2C+RB%2C+St.+Louis Fantasy Football

Steven Jackson left during the first half with a strained groin in Week 3, leaving backup Darby to be St. Louis' featured back. The Rams face Seattle's inconsistent defense at home for Week 4.

The Seahawks allowed Knowshon Moreno to total 118 yards and one score at Denver, and won't have their home field as an advantage. Jackson's owners should claim Darby in case he misses Week 4. Darby fared well in Week 3, totaling 57 yards and a score. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243446 Chris Ivory, RB, New Orleans Chris+Ivory%2C+RB%2C+New+Orleans Fantasy Football

He received the second-most carries behind Pierre Thomas in Week 3. He'll likely be New Orleans’ featured back if Thomas misses any games with a sprained ankle. The Saints have a favorable matchup against winless Carolina next contest.

Though Ivory struggled in his first NFL game (7 carries for 13 yards for a 1.9 average), the rookie will improve with more playing time. Ladell Betts would likely be the backup to Ivory if Thomas is out. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12254906 Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Sam+Bradford%2C+QB%2C+St.+Louis Fantasy Football

Tony Romo, Brett Favre and Matt Cassel have Week 4 byes. Their owners may need a better bye-week replacement and can look at Bradford vs. Seattle as a strong possibility. Bradford has shown moderate success as a fantasy quarterback, throwing for two scores at Oakland in Week 2.

Seattle has been susceptible to big fantasy games by quarterbacks. Kyle Orton threw for 307 yards and two scores in Week 2, and Philip Rivers passed for 455 yards and two scores last game. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243485 Maurice Morris, RB, Detroit Maurice+Morris%2C+RB%2C+Detroit Fantasy Football

Jahvid Best left Sunday's game during the second half with a toe injury. Morris had the most touches among Detroit's runners in Week 3, rushing for five yards from six carries, and catching five passes for 36 yards.

If Best misses any games, Morris could be Detroit's best fantasy back. However, the Lions have a tough matchup against Green Bay in Week 5, so temper expectations. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243466 Correll Buckhalter, RB, Denver Correll+Buckhalter%2C+RB%2C+Denver Fantasy Football

His fantasy worth is more dependent on Knowshon Moreno’s availability. Moreno can handle the receiving duties of a running back similar to Buckhalter. For instance, Buckhalter had zero catches during Week 2 vs. Seattle when Moreno played.

In case Moreno misses any more games, Buckhalter can serve as an emergency replacement as Denver's likely receiving back. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243447 Danny Woodhead, RB, New England Danny+Woodhead%2C+RB%2C+New+England Fantasy Football

With the loss of pass-catching running back Kevin Faulk, New England is hoping that Woodhead can help fulfill that role. He scored his first career touchdown on a 22-yard run in Week 3. New England travels to Miami next.

If Woodhead receives more playing time, he can help owners as an emergency bye-week replacement. Those owners may have thier roster depleted by injured running backs. — Roger Rotter

Fantasy Football 2186 98 Rotter's Top 10 Waiver Claims: Week 4 12243079 Blair White, WR, Indianapolis Blair+White%2C+WR%2C+Indianapolis Fantasy Football

Pierre Garcon missed Week 3 with a hamstring injury, leaving undrafted rookie White to assume the role of a No. 3 wide receiver. Targeted six times, White caught three passes for 27 yards in his NFL debut, including a nine-yard touchdown.

If Garcon and Anthony Gonzalez miss Week 4, their teammate White is a deep sleeper when Indianapolis plays at Jacksonville in Week 4. — Roger Rotter
