Fantasy Impact: Golladay received just one target in the Giants' win over the Bears Sunday. The 28-year-old continues to be a disappointment for the Giants and fantasy managers should feel comfortable moving on from Golladay. Fantasy managers should expect Richie James and David Sills V to continue to see the bulk of the targets from the wide receiver group.

Fantasy Impact: Ford was the Browns leading kickoff returner with a 24.2 average on six returns. The fifth-round pick out of Cincinnati was praised in training camp.

Tyler Allgeier was listed at the top of the Falcons depth chart heading into Week 5 against the Buccaneers. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Allgeier took 10 carries for 84 yards in Week 4. He is expected to lead the Falcons backfield with Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) placed on IR. Though Caleb Huntley saw 10 carries this past week, he was listed No. 3 on the depth chart behind Allgeier and Avery Williams.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed kicker Cameron Dicker to their practice squad Tuesday. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dicker provides insurance for the Eagles after Jake Elliott was hit hard on his plant leg Sunday. In the event Elliott is not recovered, Dicker will draw the start in Week 5. Dicker has yet to kick in the NFL, but converted on 75.9% of his field goal attempts in college.

Matthew Stafford completed 32 of 48 pass attempts for 254 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Monday's loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Stafford is currently the 25th-ranked fantasy QB - Not a great start for fantasy managers who drafted him. Stafford has thrown just four touchdown passes to his six interceptions through four weeks. At this point, it would be best to check the waiver wire for quarterback options.

Allen Robinson II caught two of six targets for 7 yards in Monday night's loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: The dismal season continues for Robinson, as he posted his lowest receiving output of the season. The Rams' offense should get better as the season progresses, but it's hard to trust Robinson in fantasy lineups for the time being. Keep him on the bench in a Week 5 matchup with the Cowboys if better options are available.

Tyler Higbee caught 10 of 14 targets for 73 yards in Monday's loss against the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Higbee has been a pleasant surprise this season, helping out fantasy mangers who punted on the tight end position. With Allen Robinson struggling, Higbee has been the most consistent second option behind Cooper Kupp. The one area that still needs work is touchdowns, but expect the scores to start coming in for the veteran TE as the Rams' offense improves throughout the season.

Category: Game Recaps

Cooper Kupp caught 14 of 19 targets for 122 yards in Monday night's loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Per usual, it was the Kupp show for the Rams. Los Angeles' offense has been struggling to start the season, with the lone bright spot being the veteran wideout. Kupp is in fantasy lineups week in and week out, regardless of the matchup.

Cam Akers rushed eight times for 13 yards in Monday night's loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Akers got one more carry than running mate Darrell Henderson Jr., but was only targeted once in the passing game. After having his best game of the season last week, Akers again becomes an inconsistent option for fantasy lineups. Until one of the RBs makes a strong case for the starting role, it's hard to trust either of them.

Category: Game Recaps

Darrell Henderson Jr. rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught three passes for 12 yards in Monday night's loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Running back roulette continues in Los Angeles, with Henderson getting more opportunities than Cam Akers in the rushing and passing game combined. Neither back was efficient with their touches, though Henderson's 3.9 yards per carry average easily topped Akers. It's hard to trust either RB moving forward until one solidifies the starting role.

Willie Snead IV has been released by the San Fransisco 49ers. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Snead was elevated to the 49ers' active roster Monday, but will only spend 1 game with the team. Snead had just 4 catches for 38 yards with the Panthers and Raiders in 2021.

Laquon Treadwell has been released from the Patriots practice squad. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Treadwell was added to the Patriots practice squad on 9/5. The former first-round pick has 1184 yards and 5 TDs since 2016.

Andy Isabella was waived by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Isabella has appeared in two games this season, catching two of his five targets for 21 yards. The 25-year-old is in his fourth NFL season and will now be subject to waivers. The former UMass product should latch on with a wide receiver needy team hoping he can return to the form he had in 2020, but he will likely not hold any fantasy value this season.

Russell Wilson (shoulder) said Tuesday that he is "super confident" that he will be able to play "with no limitations" Thursday. (Source: Nick Kosmider on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has been limited in practice multiple times this week due to a sore shoulder. Still, he seems to be ready to go and shouldn't see his performance take a hit due to the injury. Wilson has 980 yards and 4 TDs through 4 weeks.

Shaquille Leonard was ruled out during Sunday's loss to the Titans with a concussion. Frank Reich confirmed Tuesday that Leonard also suffered a broken nose on the same play. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The team is currently waiting for the swelling to go down from the broken nose to determine how long that will keep Leonard out of the lineup. The star linebacker is also dealing with a concussion and currently does not have a timetable to return from both injuries. Fantasy managers should downgrade the Colts' D/ST moving forward until they are able to get Leonard back.

The Colts have yet to determine if Jonathan Taylor will be able to play Thursday against Denver. Head coach Frank Reich stated the team is hopeful and they do not believe it will get worse if he plays on it. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Taylor suffered an ankle injury in the Colts' loss to the Titans in Week 4. He had his ankle taped up after the game but all tests on the ankle came back negative Monday. Fantasy managers are likely taking a big risk playing Taylor in Week 5, who could see a reduced workload even if he is active.

Dak Prescott is "not well enough to play" against the Rams in Week 5, per Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prescott reportedly was still having trouble gripping a football, so this move is not a surprise. Luckily for the Cowboys, backup Cooper Rush is undefeated in Prescott's absence and will draw the start against the Rams in Week 5. Prescott will continue to rehab and look to be back for a Week 6 matchup with Philadelphia.

Deon Jackson could see a larger workload if Jonathan Taylor is forced to miss Week 5 with an ankle injury. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Jackson, Nyheim Hines, and Phillip Lindsay all figure to factor in to the running game if Jonathan Taylor is out against Denver. With a short week, Taylor's status is a massive question mark. If you are in a deeper league and currently roster Taylor, it might be work picking up Jackson if you need a spot-start in Week 5.

Phillip Lindsay could see a bigger role and will "work into the equation" if Jonathan Taylor is not ready to go in Week 5, per head coach Frank Reich. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay has spent the first four weeks of the season on the Colts' practice squad. The former Bronco could see game action against his former team if Taylor is not ready to go after a short turnaround before Thursday Night Football. Fantasy managers should expect Deon Jackson and Nyheim Hines to see additional touches as well if Taylor misses Week 5.

Randy Gregory (knee) was placed on IR by the Broncos on Monday. He is eligible to return for Denver's Week 10 game with Tennessee. (Source: Denver Broncos on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Gregory suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Broncos' loss to the Raiders. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said that Gregory's ACL is intact but that he would go through a knee scope. Denver will likely turn to Nik Bonitto to fill Gregory's spot on defense for the time being.
