Packers' Comeback Problems Run Deep

Fantasy Fix: Under the radar - Week 4 Sleepers

If you’re an Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton fantasy owner this week, you'd better have a strong backup like Michael Vick or Tony Romo because the waiver wire is a little thin when it comes to QBs. It’s that time of year to take some risks. Seasons are won and lost by rolling the dice on players that can pay off big if you’re willing to take the chance. Good thing you have...
