Week 4 will go down as a weird one for fantasy players. Quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan combined for 803 passing yards and nine touchdowns. Julio Jones became just the sixth player in NFL history to have 300 receiving yards in a game. LeVeon Bell -- one of the leagues most talented running backs -- returned from suspension and lined up in several positions, including wide receiver and tight end, on his way to 178 total yards.On the down side, DeAndre Hopkins, a consensus first-round fantasy pick this season, managed just one catch for 4 yards. Latavius Murray gained 24 total yards. And Golden Tate -- expected to be Detroits top pass-catcher this season -- snagged one reception for one yard, putting him at 95 total receiving yards over the first four games.And, of course, there were injuries.INJURY REPORTWhile injuries didnt wreak as much havoc in Week 4, there were still significant names dealing with issues. Quarterbacks Cam Newton and Carson Palmer are now in the leagues concussion protocol. Palmer has a Thursday night game this week, so his owners should prepare themselves to start a replacement, as the window for clearance may be too short.Trevor Siemien suffered a shoulder injury to his non-throwing arm; the extent of the injury is unlclear. If a desperate fantasy player is parsing though the backups affected by quarterback injuries, Denvers Paxton Lynch should produce the most fantasy value if thrust into a starting role.Lions running back Dwayne Washington was poised for a solid fantasy week against the Bears, but he left Sundays game in the first half with an ankle injury and could miss time going forward.Bears receiver Kevin White quietly racked up 23 targets over the last two weeks, resulting in 117 total yards on 12 receptions. Both games came with new starter Brian Hoyer under center, making White a waiver wire target. Unfortunately, he injured his ankle in the third quarter and did not return, which could crush momentum if he misses significant time.THE RETURN OF JIMMY GRAHAMSeattles Jimmy Graham began the season with just 53 yards on four receptions over the first two games. But the tight end has broken out the last two weeks: six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 and six receptions on eight targets for 113 yards in Week 4.Russell Wilsons leg injuries may be forcing him to run less and pass more, meaning Graham has become a bigger part of the passing game almost by default. Seattle has a bye in Week 5, but as long as Wilson is affected by injury, Graham should continue to produce.HOUSTON, WE HAVE AN OFFENSEBill OBrien took over play-calling duties for the Texans in Week 4 and the result was Brock Osweilers best game yet as Houstons starter (254 yards, two touchdowns). Will Fuller (seven receptions, 81 yards, one touchdown) got back on track after a down week, and Lamar Miller contributed 108 total yards.Fantasy owners stressing over DeAndre Hopkins lackluster performance need to look no farther than Julio Jones in Week 4. Jones was coming off a one-catch, 16-yard performance in Week 3 and flirted with an NFL single-game record six days later. Despite having a tough matchup against the Vikings in Week 5, fantasy owners should not expect Hopkins to wallow in one-catch depth again this season.JEREMY KERLEY: STASH CANDIDATE49ers wide receiver Jeremy Kerley caught six passes on nine targets for 88 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys Sunday. He has averaged eight targets per game.So far this season, Kerley (owned in 3.5 percent of ESPN leagues) has faced some of the leagues top defenses (the Rams, Panthers, and Seahawks) and is staring down two more (the Cardinals and Bills) in his next two games, but his schedule gets significantly easier in the middle of the year. Hes an excellent bench stash option for a team in need of a wide receiver.WEEK 5 BYESThe Jaguars, Saints, Chiefs, and Seahawks are all on by next week.

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Carl Edwards, who won the pole at Watkins Glen International, has become somewhat of a master at qualifying on NASCARs two Sprint Cup road courses.Edwards turned a fast lap of 126.562 mph on Saturday to edge Kyle Larson for the top spot for Sundays Cheez-It 355. It was the fourth pole of the season for Edwards in his No. 19 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing and gave him a road course season sweep. He also won the pole in June at NASCARs other road course in Sonoma.Not bad for a driver who backed into a fence on the first lap he took at Watkins Glen and ignited a brush fire at Virginia International Raceway while practicing there.Im really proud of doing well just because it really has been a long learning process, Edwards said. Now weve just got to get a win here.Hes in the right spot. The last five winners at Watkins Glen came from the top six in qualifying.Five-time Watkins Glen winner Tony Stewart, whos retiring after the season, qualified third in the final road race of his career, followed by Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch.Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman, AJ Allmendinger, Jamie McMurray, Michael McDowell and Brad Keselowski comppleted the top 12.ddddddddddddMartin Truex Jr., who had topped the speed charts in Fridays first practice and was second to Allmendinger in final practice, wound up 14th after problems with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Jeff Gordon, subbing again for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr., qualified 21st.Truex and Stenhouse took turns impeding one anothers progress on the track during the first round of qualifying, and that ended up taking two of the fastest cars in practice out of the running for the pole.Stenhouse made the initial mistake and Truex simply exacted revenge.I dont know what the right thing is to do, Truex said. When you get to this level, you should be able to know whats going on around you. Its a little frustrating. He was just leaving the pits. It was not like he was on his lap. He should have seen me and just checked up.Edwards said that can be a problem on both road courses.We work hard to try not to mess up other people, Edwards said. Here its really easy to mess somebody up. Its even easier to act like you didnt mean to. ' ' '
