Ryan Mathews rushed five times for 20 yards in the Eagles' Week 4 loss to the Redskins.
Mathews was on the field for the first play of the game, but worked behind DeMarco Murray most of the day. Mathews was more effective than Murray, though Murray's stat line looks better because of a 30-yard gain early in the first quarter. Though he may be a better fit for the offense, Mathews is not getting enough work to be a fantasy contributor on a week-to-week basis.
Arian Foster managed 10 yards on 8 carries and secured 3-of-5 targets for 25 yards in the Texans' Week 4 loss to the Falcons.
Foster got the start and rotated with Alfred Blue. His lowlight occurred on a second-quarter lost fumble where Foster collided with his offensive line before Falcons CB Desmond Trufant scooped and scored to give Atlanta a 21-0 lead. Both Texans backs' fantasy days were torpedoed by game flow. Foster did look relatively healthy and afterwards declared himself 100 percent, just admitting he had a "bad game." His role should increase in Week 5 against the Colts, which will be a Thursday night game.
Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz secured 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 loss to Atlanta.
The second-year tight end out of Iowa also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Tight ends have not been a consistent part of Bill O'Brien's passing game since O'Brien arrived in Houston. Fiedorowicz shares time with Garrett Graham, who finished Sunday's loss with one catch for six yards.
Sam Bradford completed 15-of-28 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 4 loss to the Redskins.
After struggling through a first half which saw the Eagles run just 20 plays, Bradford found his deep-passing arm in the second half. Bradford connected with Riley Cooper and Miles Austin on two deep touchdowns and just missed on a third to Jordan Matthews. He also threaded a pass to Matthews down the seam in the third quarter and had a bullet of a touchdown pass to Zach Ertz called back at the end of the second quarter. The Eagles lost, but Bradford's performance in the second half despite a constant pass rush from the Redskins at least gives reason for hope. After four games, Bradford is on pace for 3,792 yards, 24 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
Charles Clay caught 9-of-13 targets for 111 yards in the Bills' Week 4 loss to the Giants.
Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught 5-of-7 targets for 34 yards Week 4 against the Jaguars.
Gore had just six yards in the first half and was shut down for most of the game. He managed a 22-yard carry in overtime to salvage his day. Gore fumbled at the goal-line for the second time in two weeks, but the Colts still pulled out the win in overtime. OC Pep Hamilton remained pass-heavy even with Matt Hasselbeck starting. Gore will be a low-end RB2 against the Texans in Week 5.
Texans rookie WR Keith Mumphery secured 4-of-7 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to Atlanta.
A fifth-round pick out of Michigan State, Mumphery saw more snaps than usual as Nate Washington (hamstring) and Cecil Shorts (shoulder) both exited with in-game injuries. It's possible Mumphery will start opposite DeAndre Hopkins on Thursday night versus the Colts. The Texans may also have to give in and elevate third-round pick Jaelen Strong onto the game-day roster.
Cecil Shorts secured 6-of-10 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 4 loss to Atlanta, but left late in the game with a shoulder injury.
Shorts was elevated to the Texans' No. 2 receiver by a hamstring injury to Nate Washington. Shorts and Washington both appear questionable at best for Thursday's date with the Colts. Predictably as a sub-package receiver on a team with major quarterback issues, Shorts has been a hit-and-miss weekly fantasy commodity. We'll have an injury update on Shorts within the next 48 hours.
