Fantasy Football Final: Everything You Need To Know From Week 4's Action

The vast majority of the Week 4 games are over, and I'm here to recap what happened in the world of fantasy football. I'm not going to list everyone's individual stats. That's something you probably already know or can easily look up. Instead, I'm going to go bullet point style on what the games mean for your team going forward. So, here's everything you need to know from Week 4's action. 

Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

- Justin Forsett bounced back in a big way. He finally looked the RB most thought he would be. Hopefully you didn't bail on him early. 

- Antonio Brown won't be the same player with Mike Vick at QB. Five points is likely his floor. Big Ben will be back soon, so don't think about trading him. On the flip side, if you can get him for less than 75 cents on the dollar, make a deal. He was still targeted nine times, although that was inflated by overtime.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals:

- Jeremy Hill put up big fantasy numbers, but Gio Bernard had more touches. It's still a time share in the backfield and I'm worried about playing either each week. 

- Jeremy Maclin put up great stats and was targeted 13 times. With so many injuries to WRs this season, he's a WR2 going forward. 

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins:  

- Be careful with Eric Decker, most of his damage is coming via TDs. He's not getting that many targets. He's a solid backup, but that's all he should be. 

- The Dolphins play calling sucks. It's killing Lamar Miller's fantasy value. Hopefully that changes soon. More runs will also open up the passing game. I still have hope for Ryan Tannehill, Jarvis Landry and Jordan Cameron. I like all three as buy low candidates. 

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts:

- I don't have much for the Colts. Luck needs to get back soon for fantasy purposes. The offense isn't as good without him. 

- Allen Hurns had 15 targets. Go pick him up now. Allen Robinson had 11 and I still like him as a WR2 or high-end flex play. 

New York Giants vs. Buffalo Bills

- Ignore Rashad Jennings. He had one big catch and is stuck in a timeshare in the backfield. 

- The Bills were without their two best fantasy players in Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy, so I don't have much input. Charles Clay is a good matchup TE play. 

Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  

- Cam Newton is so desperate for WRs, Brenton Bursin was second on the team in targets. And no, I didn't make him up. 

- Vincent Jackson had a monster day, as Winston looked his way much more than he did last week. I'm not 100 percent sold on Jackson as a WR2, but I feel much better. Hopefully, Winston keeps targeting him. 

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins:

- Don't panic if you own Jordan Matthews. He's still the top target Eagles WR and one of the most targeted in the NFL. He'll start producing will soon. I can't say I have the same confidence in DeMarco Murray, as the Eagles have refused to run the football. 

- Alfred Morris got the bulk of the work, and looked much better than Matt Jones. I trust neither of them. 

Oakland Raiders vs. Chicago Bears

- Latavius Murray missed some time with an injury, likely costing him a TD that went to Roy Helu. I'm still very high on Murray. 

- No Alshon Jeffery means big games for Martellus Bennett. He's a Top 5 TE this season. 

Atlanta Falcons vs. Houston Texans:

- Arian Foster will be slowly integrated back into the offense, so be careful with him. DeAndre Hopkins is a stud no matter who his QB is. 

- Leonard Hankerson has completely replaced Roddy White. Cut White and sign Hankerson if you still can. 

San Diego Chargers vs. Cleveland Browns

- Melvin Gordon hasn't done much this season. I'm worried about and don't think he'll be much more than a bye-week fill-in this season. He's going to need TDs to be productive. 

- Glad to see Duke Johnson get some touches. However, until he gets consistent work, he's tough to trust. Travis Benjamin is the clear No. 1 WR now.

Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers

- Call me crazy, but maybe Carlos Hyde should get more than eight carries. I still like him as an RB2, but be careful. 

- Lacy is still an RB1, but I think James Starks is going to get touches for at least a few weeks. 

St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals

 - Todd Gurley finally got a full workload and put together a big game. Now I want to see him do it for back-to-back weeks. He's worth a flex play going forward. He could end up being an RB2 soon. Tavon Austin does great things with the ball in his hands, but I worry that the Rams won't ensure he gets the touches he needs. 

- At this point, Larry Fitzgerald is a high-end WR2. I like John Brown as a decent flex play. I'd say the same for David Johnson, but I worry about the return of Andre Ellington. 

Minnesota Vikings vs. Denver Broncos

- Mike Wallace had a big game and I like him as at least a flex play going forward. Stefon Diggs had 10 targets and is worth adding in deeper leagues, especially PPR ones. 

- I'm still unsure about Denver's RBs. Ronnie Hillman ran for 103 yards and a score, but most of that came on a 75-yard run. Both Hillman and C.J. Anderson had 11 carries and it looks like it will still be a time share in the backfield. I trust neither, but would prefer Hillman for now. 

Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints

- Darren McFadden had 10 carries, while Joseph Randle had 11. That hurts Randle's value, but bumps up McFadden's. Still, Randle is the one you want. For now. Terrance Williams is the top target (by default) for Dallas with Dez out. He's a flex play

 - C.J. Spiller still has PPR value, but not much in standard leagues. Don't panic on Brandin Cooks; he only put up 25 yards, but had eight targets. I still like him as a WR2.
