Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223919 Dud: Rashard Mendenhall vs. Houston Dud%3A+Rashard+Mendenhall+vs.+Houston Fantasy Football

Let’s ignore his nine carries for 25 yard-effort versus Houston. Mendenhall hasn’t finished with 70 rushing yards in a game yet this season. THIS proves how the Pittsburgh offensive line isn’t built to assist Mendenhall’s running style and why, if you are an owner of said back, you might want to try and make a deal. Isaac Redman and Mewelde Moore smell blood in the water. They combined for 74 yards on 10 carries versus the Texans. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30225695 Stud: Jimmy Graham vs. Jacksonville Stud%3A+Jimmy+Graham+vs.+Jacksonville Fantasy Football

For an offense that likes to spread the wealth, Drew Brees honed in on Jimmy Graham as he shredded the Jacksonville pass defense.  The Saints' tight end - who received more looks with David Thomas inactive - was targeted 14 times!  He finished with 10 catches for 132 yards (both career highs) and a touchdown.  It's a great day's work, but don't get too cocky and expect him to eclipse 100 yards each week now that Colston is back from injury. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223758 Dud: Peyton Hillis vs. Tennessee Dud%3A+Peyton+Hillis+vs.+Tennessee Fantasy Football

The Titans' possessed the eighth-best rushing defense heading into their game at Cleveland, but, even so, I believed Hillis was worthy of a flex play against the Titans.  Turns out strep throat isn't the only thing that can keep the Madden cover boy from making an impact.   The Browns' running back finished with 46 yards rushing and 23 yards receiving in a one-sided battle on the shores of Lake Erie.  To his defense, the illness did cause him to shed some weight, but look at homeboy's guns over there!  Are those registered?! - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30226164 Stud: Beanie Wells vs. New York Giants Stud%3A+Beanie+Wells+vs.+New+York+Giants Fantasy Football

Ohio State could only muster 178 total yards of offense versus Michigan State on Saturday.   Former Buckeye, Beanie Wells, came up 40 yards short of matching that offensive output by himself.  Arizona's running back returned from a hamstring injury that kept him on the sidelines in Week 3, to erupt for 138 rushing yards (5.1 yards per carry) and three touchdowns against the Giants.   And all this time, we've been harping on the Giants' depleted secondary.   You might want to check on that rush defense while you're at it Tom. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30224291 Dud: Reggie Bush vs. San Diego Dud%3A+Reggie+Bush+vs.+San+Diego Fantasy Football

He had a chance to make a name for himself, again. With Daniel Thomas out due to injury, Bush could have solidified a more consistent role in the Dolphins’ offense. Instead, he finished with 13 carries for 50 yards and two catches for 15. Blech. Boring. Thomas’ owners have nothing to worry about. If the rookie is healthy, he’ll get plenty of run. No pun intended. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223754 Stud: Matt Forte vs. Carolina Stud%3A+Matt+Forte+vs.+Carolina Fantasy Football

Forte's 205 rushing yards smashed his previous career-high by 39.  Oh, and he chipped in 23 receiving yards and a touchdown.  So, how much have the Chicago Bears relied on the running back this season?  I'm glad you asked because I did the math.   Forte has accounted for 634 total yards (rush+receiving) and the Chicago Bears have racked up 1231 total yards.  So, 51.5 percent of all yardage gained has been thanks to Forte. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223759 Dud: Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Cincinnati Dud%3A+Ryan+Fitzpatrick+vs.+Cincinnati Fantasy Football

The FOXSports.com fantasy staff tried to warn you that Cincinnati's pass defense wasn't too shabby.  Following a three-game stretch where he tossed nine touchdowns, "Fitz-magic" was held to a 20 of 34-performance and finished with 199 yards passing with no touchdowns or interceptions against the Bengals.  The ho-hum offensive effort allowed Andy Dalton to rally his troops the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.  I still think Fitz is worth keeping on your roster. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223757 Stud: Ryan Torain vs. St. Louis Stud%3A+Ryan+Torain+vs.+St.+Louis Fantasy Football

Mike Shanahan lulled owners into a false sense of security.  Tim Hightower 25 carries Week 1, 20 carries Week 2, and 14 carries Week 3.   All signs pointed to Roy Helu as the Redskins' RBBC vice president.  Torain didn't even have a carry heading into Week 4!  Then, BOOM!  The third-string (who even knows what strings Shanahan is pulling?) breaks out for 19 carries, 135 yards and a touchdown.   Cue up the "Who should I start Hightower or Torain?" questions the rest of the season.  I'm going to be ill. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30226160 Dud: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Houston Dud%3A+Ben+Roethlisberger+vs.+Houston Fantasy Football

This "Dud" slam isn't completely Ben's fault.  As the picture illustrates, Roethlisberger may get killed if his offensive line doesn't offer up more protection on pass plays.  In fact, the Steelers' quarterback was spotted on crutches after the game (foot), which means a fun evening and Monday of MRI scans, icing and elevating.  He finished Sunday's game at Houstin with a QB rating of 61.3 after going 16-30 with no touchdowns, an interception, and was sacked FIVE TIMES.  He has thrown three touchdowns this season and five interceptions. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds: NFL Week 4 30223903 Stud: Aaron Rodgers vs. Denver Stud%3A+Aaron+Rodgers+vs.+Denver Fantasy Football

Aaron Rodgers' fantasy point total will beat some owners' team-total this week.  The Packers' quarterback finished 29-38 for 408 passing yards, four touchdowns (passing), 36 rushing yards, two touchdowns (rushing) and an interception.   Had he not thrown the pick, he would have finished with 60 fantasy points in most standard-scoring leagues.  Epic. - Ryan Fowler

Matt Forte is carrying the Chicago Bears and fantasy owners on his back this season.   He managed to increase his rushing productivity over 10,000 percent week-over-week.  That's good enough to earn him Stud honors for the week.   For the rest, click on through to the other side ... - Ryan Fowler
