Week 3 is in the books in fantasy football which means the only thing we need to do is focus in on Week 4 which starts with the top weekly adds.  Let's see who you should target this week.  

Orleans Darkwa:  With Shane Vereen out for the season with a triceps injury that requires surgery, Orleans Darkwa moves up a notch in the New York Giants' running back hierarchy.  Darkwa played well in splitting work with Vereen Sunday and he also showed a spark when on the field in 2015 as well.  Rashad Jennings is not a lock to play in Week 4 and at worst the Giants have hinted at a committee when if the veteran returns.

Cole Beasley:  Clearly Dak Prescott loves throwing to his PPR wideout as Beasley who has caught 7, 5, and 8 passes the first three games.  Again those in PPR should be especially intrigued here and Beasley should be a top pick this week.

Jordan Howard:  Chicago Bears starting RB Jeremy Langford suffered an ankle injury that will likely keep him for a few weeks.  Even before he got hurt, Langford was catching a ton of heat from speedy rookie Jordan Howard and now it looks like there is a changing at the top of the pecking order.  Howard has a huge chance this week to cement the starting job and his ability to both run and catch make him the top pickup this week.

Dwayne Washington:  If Washington was not picked up last week, then he should see fierce competition this week as Theo Riddick proved Sunday he is not a runner and only a receiver.  Washington has the power and speed to be an instant impact guy and the Detroit Lions knows how to move the football.

Trevor Siemian:  Throwing four touchdown passes in any one game will get anyone's attention and such is the setup now for Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian.  The kid has shown great poise and got both Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryuis Thomas fully involved Sunday to great success. He also has a plus matchup on tap versus the awful Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.

Zach Miller:  Lots of tight end injuries the last few weeks and so the search for a replacement should center here.  Miller comes off a big Monday night outing where he caught 8 passes for 78 yards and 2 scores.  With tight end-loving Brian Hoyer likely to start again next week, Miller should remain a big part of the offense.

Richard Rogers:  Again with lots of tight end injuries around the league; which includes now Green Bay starter Jared Cook; Richard Rogers becomes interesting in deeper formats as he already caught a touchdown Sunday replacing his hurt teammate.  We all know by now that Aaron Rogers likes to spread things around which means Rogers doesn't have a ton of PPR value but in standards he makes the grade. 

Terrell Pryor:  With no one else left standing in the Cleveland offense, we are now down to former QB Terrell Pryor as the top receiving threat on the team.  Pryor has great athleticism and caught 8 balls for 144 yards Sunday.  Cody Kessler seems to have taken an instant liking to Pryor so on opportunity alone this is worth a look. 

Kenyan Drake:  It was assumed that Jay Ajayi would start in place of Arian Foster on Sunday but it was the speedy Drake who averaged 4.1 per carry and caught 2 passes.  Noting earth-shattering but given Arian Foster's ongoing injuries, Drake is a must add.
