Injuries and Waiver Wire week 4 2022
NFL WEEK 4 INJURIES
Brian Hoyer (Head) - Hoyer was ruled out with a head injury early in the first quarter and did not return.
Daniel Jones (Ankle) - Jones briefly left Sunday's game with an ankle injury but was able to return. He is considered day-to-day.
Tua Tagovailoa (Concussion) - Tua left Thursday's game in the first half with an injury. He has been ruled out for week five with a concussion, and will remain in protocol, per Ian Rapoport.
Tyrod Taylor (Concussion) - Taylor suffered a concussion after filling in for Daniel Jones who briefly left the game.
Cordarrelle Patterson (Knee) - Patterson was placed on IR with a knee injury and will miss at least four games.
Jonathan Taylor (Ankle) - Taylor has been diagnosed with an ankle injury and is considered day-to-day. Tests came back negative, and Taylor is expected to play on Thursday night.
Javonte Williams (Knee) - Williams tore his ACL, a torn LCL and posterior lateral corner, per Ian Rapoport.
Treylon Burks (Leg) - Burks was carted off the field with a leg injury and has been diagnosed with turf toe. He will not require surgery.
Quintez Cephus (Foot) - Cephus was ruled with a foot injury and did not return.
Jamison Crowder (Ankle) - Crowder suffered a broken ankle on Sunday.
Jahan Dotson (Hamstring) - Dotson injured his hamstring and did not return. He is expected to miss one-to-two weeks, according to coach Rivera.
Chris Godwin (Undisclosed) - Godwin briefly left the game late in the third quarter of Sunday night's game but was able to return.
Kenny Golladay (Knee) - Golladay injured his knee vs the Bears. His status for week five "does not look promising," per coach Daboll.
Isaiah McKenzie (Concussion) - McKenzie took a nasty hit and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Laviska Shenault Jr. (Hamstring) - Left with a right hamstring injury and could not return. This comes after Shenault previously injured his left hamstring, as Shenault now has two hamstring injuries.
WEEK 4 WAIVER WIRE:
Jared Goff (DET) - What if there was a top-10 fantasy QB that is available in 72.7% of NFL Fantasy leagues and 71.6% of ESPN leagues? Well, there is, and Jared Goff is that guy. He's scored 33.22 fantasy points in week four vs the Seahawks, which may be an anomaly, and he has scored 15.59, 26.04, and 13.88 fantasy points in the other weeks. He faces off against a Patriots team that just allowed Aaron Rodgers to score a solid 16.14 fantasy points (QB13 on the week, pending MNF). Goff is operating with limited weapons but is still throwing enough volume to be a top-12 option. Fire him up in week five.
Dak Prescott (DAL)
Brian Robinson Jr. (WAS) - Robinson is expected to be activated off IR for his week five matchup vs the Titans. He may be eased into action but expect his role to increase over time. He was reportedly beating out starting RB Antonio Gibson in camp this summer, so it's only a matter of time before Robinson earns meaningful snaps. He is more of a long-term add than an immediate option.
Rachaad White (TB) - White is one of the top handcuffs of 2022, playing behind Leonard Fournette in the Buccaneers offense. We saw some explosiveness on Sunday night, as he hauled in five receptions for 50 yards, and added a rushing touchdown. White was a 2022 third-round NFL pick and should continue to earn more touches as the season goes on.
Tyler Allgeier (ATL) - Allgeier led the Falcons in RB snaps in week four and has seen increased snaps in every week this season, going from 19 > 21 > 24 snaps. He made the most of his opportunity in week four, totaling 10 attempts and 84 yards. The Falcons just placed Patterson on IR with a knee injury, and don't have much depth, so Allgeier will do what he can to make a name for himself.
Nyheim Hines (IND) - We have to monitor the Jonathan Taylor news, but if Hines is still available in your league, he is the next-man up for the Colts. He's primarily been a receiving back throughout his career but may have to step up if Taylor needs to miss time. Hines' next three matchups are @DEN, vs JAX and @ TEN.
Mike Boone (DEN), James Cook (BUF), Jaylen Warren (PIT)
Romeo Doubs (GB) - Doubs finished with another game of double-digit fantasy points in week four, totaling 13.70 fantasy points. He also just barely missed a touchdown pass late in the game, which would have added significantly to his week four fantasy point total. He's becoming more consistent as the season goes on and earning more trust from QB Aaron Rodgers. Doubs faces off against the Giants, Jets, and Commanders in his next three weeks.
George Pickens (PIT) - Kenny Pickett has taken over for starting QB Mitchell Trubisky with hopes of injecting new life into this Steelers' offense. Perhaps this could open the door for better quality of targets for the Steelers' other rookie, George Pickens. Pickens was a second-round draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He's already made a circus-type catch this season (week 3 vs the Browns) and earned 16.20 fantasy points in week four vs the Jets. The Steelers' receiver group is crowded, but Pickens' talent should continue to shine over the course of the season.
Mack Hollins (LV) - This might be a bit of a mirage, but over the last two weeks, Hollins has scored the 10th-most fantasy points among all WRs. This has come while fellow WR Hunter Renfrow has been out. Hollins is available in 99.7% of NFL Fantasy leagues and 80% of ESPN fantasy leagues. If you're looking for a short-term addition, Hollins could be your guy.
Michael Gallup (DAL), Nico Collins (HOU), Devin Duvernay (BAL)
Tyler Conklin (NYJ) - Did you know that Tyler Conklin has scored the fourth-most fantasy points over the last two weeks among TEs? Available in roughly 50% of NFL Fantasy leagues, 61.7% of ESPN leagues, Conklin is a must-add for any TE needy team right now. He faces off against Miami, Green Bay, and Denver over the next three weeks.
Evan Engram (JAX), Irv Smith Jr. (MIN)
