Fantasy Football: Week 4 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

September 26, 2017
Some Notes:

• Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles tore his ACL and broke his arm, ending his season.

• Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) missed Week 3, but his knee shows no structural damage. Backup Case Keenum filled in and played well, making Bradford's return time uncertain.

• Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin tweaked his knee but seemed to avoid anything serious.

• It looks like Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon is going to be given his first shot at being the fulltime starter. While Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to miss a few more weeks.

• New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. returned to form this week, easing the minds of his fantasy owners for the moment.

• Denver running backs C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles seem like they are officially splitting time in the Broncos' backfield.

• Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard was in a sling after the game. He came into Week 2 with a shoulder issue, and then had his best game of his season with two touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. 

• Redskins tight end Jordan Reed missed Week 3 .... shocking, I know. 

• You can drop New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis and Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp.

• Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck could practice this week.

• "Thursday Night Football:" Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers

• "Monday Night Football:" Washington Redskins at Kansas City Chiefs
