Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.

Saints backfield split could still lead to Fantasy success
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Saints split Mark Ingram's lost playing time between Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson in Week 3 against the Vikings, though Robinson was the big winner.

Thomas saw 41.4 percent of the team's offensive snaps through the first two games, a number that jumped up to 49 percent as he accounted for 51 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. However, he took a big backseat to Robinson in the running game, just as he did when Ingram was healthy.

Robinson was a total non-factor in the passing game, but led the team with 69 rushing yards on 18 carries. Prior to Week 3, Ingram had accounted for 27.6 percent of the team's offensive snaps, while Robinson was seeing the field just 17.9 percent of the time. Robinson pretty much took on Ingram's role Sunday, as he played 41 percent of the team's snaps.

Thomas should continue to be the team's back in passing downs, but Robinson looks like the workhorse in the passing game. If this distribution stays constant moving forward, Robinson could find a great deal of success in Week 4, against a Cowboys defense that is allowing 5.0 yards per carry to opposing running backs.

Robinson is still available in 28 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, but he should be a solid starting option in Week 4. Consider adding him if available.
