Every football season, Fantasy Football owners deal with players getting hurt. It's part of the game.
But all football owners might be on the injury report this week with an eye injury after witnessing this on Sunday Night Football.
There are two concerns with this: Why is he showing off his belly at the game? And (maybe more importantly) why did he do it when his team (Saints) were kicking what would've been the game-winning field goal?
So many questions and not enough answers.
Anyway, let's move on to this week's waiver wire gets to help you battle through some bye weeks.
Was Week 4 finally (FINALLY!!) Tavon Austin's breakout game in the NFL? I've liked this guy since the Rams made him the eighth overall pick in 2013, but he's failed to live up to any sort of threat as a receiver. His game-breaking speed helps out in the return game (three punt TDs, including one already this season) and ground game (four rushing TDs, including one this year). His six-catch, 96-yard, 2-tuddie game in Week 4 was fantastic, but amazingly enough, it was only his second career game with more than 47 receiving yards. Last season, he did not break the 35-yard threshold in any game. Temper your expectations, but Austin has the talent to be a valubale fantasy asset and he's absolutely worth owning for right now, just maybe don't start him yet until he proves it. (Tony Andracki)
We finally found the No. 2 target in Atlanta and it's not Roddy White (anyone know where he is?). It's Hankerson and he's now worth owning. A strong Week 4 performance should preview what will be a productive rest of the season for Hankerson. The Falcons offense is #FireEmoji right now and it hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. With defenders gravitating towards Julio Jones on every snap, Hankerson should get a lot of 1-on-1 looks and Ryan will find him. (John "The Professor" Paschall)
It's gotten to that point of the season where everyone is getting desperate to find running backs. Bye weeks certainly a factor in that but also some guys just aren't effective. Everyone in Cleveland wanted Johnson to be "the guy" and it looks like the light may have finally turned on for the rookie. He wasn't quite as dangerous rushing but he was very productive in the passing game. He is a great add for PPR leagues and he should look to get more carries going forward in the Browns offense. (Paschall)
This one will sting for CJ Anderson owners. Hillman looks to be the better and more effective runner so far in the Broncos offense. Gary Kubiak won't avoid the run and with Peyton Manning's arm still a major concern and winter coming (God, I miss Game of Thrones), Hillman will get the rock more. The balance of power in the Broncos backfield looks to be shifting towards Hillman. (Paschall)
Not even the offensive guru Marc Trestman can make this Ravens offense better. It's tough to watch at times, although Justin Forsett's Thursday night game was pretty great. But with Steve Smith out, who will Joe Flacco throw the ball to? Aiken seems to be that guy by process of elimination. Going against the Browns, Aiken may be a decent emergency FLEX play. (Paschall)
Who is this guy? The Raiders defense allowed us to finally learn his name and the Josh McCown-Barnidge connection (never thought I'd write that in a million years) stayed hot in San Diego. The Ravens defense has been surprisingly awful and McCown is hot right now. He's not a bad backup tight end or emergency start this week. (Paschall)
Ginn isn't going to win you any PPR leagues, but he's far and away the only receiver worth owning in Carolina right now. Ginn is coming off a two-tuddie game (albeit with only 2 catches and 18 yards total) and is catching less than half of his targets on the season, but his 25 targets are almost double the next Panthers receiver (Devin Funchess with 13) and Ginn is always a threat to break off a big play with his speed. (Andracki)
Deep sleeper alert! I love dropping these at the end of our waiver wire posts. But seriously, Diggs might be what we thought Charles Johnson might be. I know it's only one game, but Teddy Bridgewater went to him often and was successful. He will probably receive more playing time going forward but is still a major boom-or-bust pickup. But when Diggs starts doing well, remember where the hype train started. (Paschall)
