Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31352304 Stud - Drew Brees Stud+-+Drew+Brees Fantasy Football

Got to feel for the cat. Brees did everything short of handing out orange slices during timeouts, torching the Green Bay resistance for an eye-popping 446 yards and three touchdowns in the Saints’ heartbreaking 28-27 defeat in Lambeau. The porous secondary of New Orleans will force an already air-prone attack to the skies on a consistent basis in 2012, which will link to fireworks in the fantasy world. These amplified aerial attempts will also lead to more interceptions than usual for Brees, but the juice is definitely worth the squeeze for the All-Pro quarterback. - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31346835 Dud – US Ryder Cup Dud+%26ndash%3B+US+Ryder+Cup Fantasy Football

And not just for their epic collapse to the European crew on Sunday afternoon. Rather, America’s duffers earn this ill-reputed honor for their execution, or lack thereof, on high fives throughout the Ryder Cup. Seriously. There were more missed connections at Medinah Country Club than O'Hare Airport this weekend in the Windy City. I love me some golf, but not sure the game constitutes a sport if its participants cannot connect on such a simple celebratory clamp. Can we at least get congratulatory-embrace extraordinaires Victor Martinez and Wally Szczerbiak to run a workshop before next year’s Presidents Cup on how to properly slap hands? - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31353169 Stud - Chris Johnson Stud+-+Chris+Johnson Fantasy Football

The Tennessee back awoke from his September slumber, racking up 141 yards on the ground versus one of the best defenses in football. Granted, Houston’s massive advantage led to more protection against the deep ball, allowing Johnson room to roam up front, but beggars can’t be choosers. Alas, this production was somewhat wasted, as Johnson’s struggles correlated to a demotion to the bench in nearly half of FOXSports.com fantasy football leagues. Poor guy. Even when he’s doing work, he’s antagonizing his owners. - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31352307 Dud - Mikel Leshoure Dud+-+Mikel+Leshoure Fantasy Football

The newly-anointed starter’s follow-up submission off his debut was inauspicious, collecting a meager 26 yards in the rushing game. Leshoure did add four receptions and 37 yards in the receiving arena, yet a fumble negated most of this gain. Leshoure was dealing with a groin ailment most of the week, and Minnesota’s defense is proving a formidable foe to even the most explosive of terrain assaults. However, I doubt this justification will ease the throbbing from Leshoure’s lackluster display in the box score. - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31352305 Stud - Brian Hartline Stud+-+Brian+Hartline Fantasy Football

The Fins fell short in the desert, but that’s no fault of the OSU product, who finished with 12 grabs, 253 yards and a touchdown. Of greater note is 19 targets to Hartline, tops among Dolphins receivers. Such a conquest in professional pigskin is quite the accomplishment; that it transpired versus an Arizona team that flaunts one of the best defenses on the young season gives gravitas to the enterprise. Ryan Tannehill is quickly developing rapport with the crafty receiver, and the neophyte signal caller’s quick-hit form should equate to further dividends for Hartline this fall. - Joel Beall

Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/09/30/5_20120930202408231_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/09/30/5_20120930202408231_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31346825 Stud - Roddy White Stud+-+Roddy+White Fantasy Football

White’s statistical onslaught (eight receptions, 169 yards, two touchdowns) will grab the fantasy forum’s attention, and rightfully so. However, proprietors of the Falcons receiver should be thrilled with another figure: 12. As in, 12 targets in White’s vicinity Sunday, four more than the nearest Atlanta offensive player. There were fears that the emergence of fellow wideout Julio Jones would impede White’s prosperity in 2012. Though Jones is doing fine in his own right, it has not encumbered his fellow Dirty Bird, as White now has 27 receptions, 413 yards and three end-zone excursions this campaign. Unfortunately, White’s day was slightly overshadowed thanks to…

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31346826 Dud - Darren McFadden Dud+-+Darren+McFadden Fantasy Football

McFadden was envisioned to Rock the House against a pedestrian Denver front seven. Instead, the Raiders runner was hit with Hard Times, Walking This Way to 34 yards on 13 carries. You would hope that McFadden Wakes Up and is Not Going Out Like That, but with Oakland’s woes up front, It’s Tricky to surmise positive perspectives on his potential for the rest of the season. And though It’s Not Funny to McFadden owners, Can I Get a Witness that these Run-D.M.C. puns are somewhat entertaining? - Joel Beall

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/09/30/7_20120930202507238_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/09/30/7_20120930202507238_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31352306 Stud – Pats Running Backs Stud+%26ndash%3B+Pats+Running+Backs Fantasy Football

The harvest from Stevan Ridley (22 carries, 106 yards, two scores) wasn’t a surprise, as the New England back entered the foray averaging nearly 78 yards on the ground. What was startling was the outburst from Brandon Bolden, a bruising back who posted 137 yards on 16 attempts, as the undrafted rookie from Ole Miss came into the contest with just seven career carries. We wouldn’t necessarily classify the Patriots backfield as a committee situation yet, and Foxborough remains a flight-first environment. Still, Bolden has clearly leapfrogged Shane Vereen on the depth chart and is worth the waiver-wire look in deeper formats. - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31346827 Dud - Ryan Williams Dud+-+Ryan+Williams Fantasy Football

Accumulating 83 yards on 13 attempts versus Philadelphia last week, combined with Cardinals running back Beanie Wells’ journey to the Injured Reserve list, made Williams a popular pick-up on the waiver wire this week. Regrettably, Williams did not reward managers with their gamble, as the second-year back turned in just 26 yards on 13 carries. In Williams’ defense, Arizona’s adversary, Miami, entered as the third-toughest unit against the run, and Wells’ absence means more opportunities are on the horizon, but the early returns were not promising. - Joel Beall

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 4 Studs and Duds 31353168 Stud - Cam Newton Stud+-+Cam+Newton Fantasy Football

Tom Brady gets a nod for 340 yards and four touchdowns, but given the murmurs surrounding Newton after his performance last week against the G-Men, today’s exploits in the Georgia Dome were encouraging and assuring to those invested in the Carolina QB. True, his fumble at the end of the ball game contributed to his team’s loss, yet with 215 yards through the air, another 86 on the soil and three trips to pay dirt, Newton’s feats facilitated many a fantasy triumph for those that kept the faith. The former Heisman winner’s occasional lack of concentration will rear its ugly head from time to time, but with a slate chockfull of susceptible defenses, Newton should endure as a rotisserie beast. - Joel Beall
