J Charles (KCC)

Jamaal Charles Is Active For MNF
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (ankle) is officially actice Monday versus New England.

Fantasy Spin:
He was battling a high-ankle sprain, but got in limited practices throughout the week. Charles should not have any limitations. Fire him up as an RB1.

A Dobson (NEP)
K Thompkins (NEP)

Patriots Hold Out Dobson, Thompkins For Monday Night Football
Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson and fellow wide out Kenbrell Thompkins are inactive for Monday night's game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin:
This is the second straight week Dobson is a healthy scratch. Tom Brady will have Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Brandon LaFell as his wide receiver targets in addition to a healthy Rob Gonkowski.

K Orton (BUF)
E Manuel (BUF)

EJ Manuel Benched, Kyle Orton Will Start In Week 5
Bills quarterback Kyle Orton has been named the starter over E.J. Manuel for Week 5 against Atlanta.

Fantasy Spin:
Orton is a solid backup, but not a fantasy starter anymore. In four games this season Manuel never threw for more than 238 yards and the change could perk up fantasy values across the board as the offense won't be limited with a veteran under center.

T Bridgewater (MIN)

Bridgewater's MRI Comes Back Clean
The latest word from coach Mike Zimmer is Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's MRI came back fine and he is expected to start Thursday against the Packers.

Fantasy Spin:
Bridgewater did everything fantasy owners could have hoped for, throwing for 317 yards and rushing for a touchdown in leading Minnesota to a win. He injured the ankle in the fourth quarter. He'll only have a short time to heal and prepare for Thursday night's game.
04:32 PM
M Evans (TBB)

Mike Evans Will Miss A Few Games
Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1.

Fantasy Spin:
The No. 6 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft had scored the first touchdown of the game out-muscling the Steelers defenders and caught four balls for 65 yards and a TD. Louis Murphy figures to see more playing time in the interim.
02:49 PM
F Gore (SFO)

Frank Gore Has Terrific Game vs. Eagles
San Francisco running back Frank Gore complained about lack of opportunities last weekend and the "squeaky wheel got the grease."

Fantasy Spin:
Gore rushed 24 times for 119 yards and caught a 55-yard touchdown pass. That's more like it.
02:45 PM
L McCoy (PHI)

LeSean McCoy Has Miserable Game In Week 4
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rushed for just 17 yards on 10 carries against San Francisco.

Fantasy Spin:
Seventeen rushing yards and no receiving yards, this is becoming an ugly trend. He's yet to rush for 80 yards in a game and has one touchdown. That's not what fantasy owners paid high dollar for on draft day. Hopefully the Eagles injured offensive line will get healthier and open some holes.
02:42 PM
N Foles (PHI)

Nick Foles Has Terrible Outing vs. 49ers
Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21-of-43 passes for just 195 yards and two interceptions.

Fantasy Spin:
OK, everyone is allowed a bad day now and then ... except Peyton Manning. Foles couldn't do anything on offense and still had a chance to win the game on the final drive, but came up short. Credit the 49ers defense and move on.
02:40 PM
R White (ATL)

Roddy White Gets 14 Targets In Week 4
Falcons receiver Roddy White was active as promised and led the team with 14 targets in Week 4 against Minnesota.

Fantasy Spin:
His hamstring injury was never a real concern. He turned those targets into 73 yards and one touchdown. We think Ryan forced the ball to White too often and down the road will utilize Julio Jones more, but we're happy to see White was healthy.
02:36 PM
J Jones (ATL)

Julio Jones Posts Worst Stat-line of the Year
Falcons receiver Julio Jones had a very pedestrian six catch, 82-yard day.

Fantasy Spin:
Ryan targeted Roddy White 14 times and Jones eight times and Devin Hester seven times.
02:34 PM
A Smith (ATL)

Antone Smith Very Explosive Day In Falcons' Backfield
The most explosive back in Atlanta isn't Steven Jackson or Jacquizz Rodgers it's Antone Smith.

Fantasy Spin:
Too bad he doesn't get enough work to be fantasy worthy. Sunday he rushed four times for 62 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown. He's run the ball 10 times this season for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Isn't it about time to stop using plodding Steven Jackson?
02:32 PM
M Ryan (ATL)

Matt Ryan Throws 3 TDs In Week 4 Loss
Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan continues to struggle on the road, though he did throw for 298 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Spin:
He also threw two interceptions and that's five in two road games this year after throwing 14 on the road (versus three at home) last season. He's become an "only start at home guy."
02:28 PM
C Patterson (MIN)

Cordarelle Patterson Continues To Struggle
Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was a non-factor in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Fantasy Spin:
Minnesota needs to utilize him more, as he only saw four targets all day and no rushing attempts. The only thing he contributed was two kickoff returns, one for 49 yards. He's got too much talent to be used this way.
02:25 PM
J Wright (MIN)

Jarius Wright Leads Team In Week 4
Vikings backup receiver Jarius Wright led the team in targets (10), receptions (8) and yards (132) against Atlanta.

Fantasy Spin:
The targets total was more than double any other receiver. It will be interesting to see whether this continues or was a one-time thing. He's really only the team's third-best receiver behind Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson.
02:22 PM
T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Plays Well But Gets Hurt In First Start
If you started Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater because of the bye week situation pat yourself, and your quarterback, on the back.

Fantasy Spin:
Bridgewater did everything fantasy owners could have hoped for, throwing for 317 yards and rushing for a touchdown in leading Minnesota to a win. He did leave in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury, but X-rays were negative and hopefully he'll be ready for Thursday versus Green Bay.
