Fantasy Fox: Top 30 free agents for Week 4

BY foxsports • September 24, 2013

Here's my listing of the top 30 free agents for Week 4 — citing 12-team, standard-scoring leagues — a countdown that typically values long-term viability over one week of superb stats.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Ryan Tannehill, Terrelle Pryor, Carson Palmer, Geno Smith and EJ Manuel are the likeliest candidates for the most points from Sunday to Sunday.

But I would also place an equal or higher priority on landing possible dynamos at receiver, running back and tight end ... ahead of a quarterback who may only draw one start all season (bye-week help).

1. WR Stephen Hill, Jets
2. RB Johnathan Franklin, Packers
3. QB Terrelle Pryor, Raiders
4. D/ST Kansas City Chiefs
5. QB Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins
6. WR Kenbrell Thompkins, Patriots
7. RB Ronnie Hillman, Broncos
8. WR Santonio Holmes, Jets
9. RB Brandon Bolden, Patriots
10. WR Ryan Broyles, Lions
11. WR Austin Pettis, Rams
12. QB Carson Palmer, Cardinals
13. K Greg Zuerlein, Rams
14. TE Heath Miller, Steelers
15. K Nick Novak, Chargers
16. RB Michael Bush, Bears
17. WR Donnie Avery, Chiefs
18. WR Michael Floyd, Cardinals
19. QB Jake Locker, Titans
20. QB Geno Smith, Jets
21. WR Davone Bess, Browns
22. WR Justin Hunter, Titans
23. RB Alfonso Smith, Cardinals
24. D/ST Carolina Panthers (excellent stash for Weeks 5-16)
25. RB Bobby Rainey, Browns
26. TE Charles Clay, Dolphins
27. D/ST New Orleans Saints
28. K Dan Carpenter, Bills
29. RB Robert Turbin, Seahawks
