5. John Brown WR Arizona Cardinals (1.5 % Owned)

Us Cardinals know how explosive John Brown can be. The rest of the league is starting to take notice after Brown’s two TD catches in Cards win over the Niners. Brown was a preseason monster, but the rookie still went undrafted in most people’s fantasy football leagues. The Cardinals have Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd ahead of him on the depth chart, but it doesn’t hurt to take a flier on Brown if you’re lacking at the wideout position.

4. Alfred Blue RB Houston Texans (3.3% Owned)

Running backs are dropping like flies this season. That’s why it’s important to add depth at the position off the waiver wire when possible. Blue, who started in Week 3 with Arian Foster out of action, is a prime example. Considering Foster’s workload and issues with injuries in the last one-plus seasons, Blue is in the running to have even more starts in 2014. Blue had a great game for the Texans last week. He totaled 78 yards on 13 carries and also caught a pass for a 10 yard gain as well. Look for Blue to continue to step up as long as Foster is out.
