Fantasy Football Week 4: Bold predictions
Our analysts reveal their boldest fantasy predictions for Week 4. This week, Chicago's ridiculous offense gets a date with the Giants D, a group that's been horrendous against the run. Herbert will see all the touches he can possibly handle this week; he's about to deliver an easy top-five positional finish. It doesn't always work out the way matchups appear, but this certainly sets up for a Jeudy smash week. In a surprisingly high-scoring fantasy game script, I see Mariota turning in a top-five quarterback performance.wftv.com

From season-altering to bizarre, injuries hit NFL yet again
From the season-altering (Dak Prescott, Barkley) to the bizarre (Tyrod Taylor, Trent Brown), injuries are playing their traditionally significant role in the NFL. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)ARLINGTON, Texas – From the season-altering to the bizarre, injuries are playing their traditionally significant role in the NFL. Brown also recently went back on the COVID-19 list, a newcomer among potential ailments with the NFL playing during a pandemic. Few teams have had the volume of injuries that have hit defending NFC champion San Francisco. New Orleans' star receiver, Michael Thomas, has had a tumultuous season in part because of ankle and hamstring injuries.
2 QBs from this Central Florida city are now on the same NFL roster
Bortles, the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, won’t be able to join the team until the weekend. Driskel took over last weekend when starter Drew Lock injured his throwing shoulder on a sack in Pittsburgh. He has 106 touchdown passes and 75 interceptions in 81 career games, including 76 starts, three in the playoffs. Last year, Bortles backed up the Rams’ Jared Goff but threw just two passes in three appearances. Even without Lock sidelined and Sutton out for the year, the Broncos don’t plan to alter their offense.
Barkley, 49ers hit with potentially season-ending injuries
Start with running back, where Giants star Saquon Barkley is believed to have torn the ACL in his right knee early in their loss at Chicago. The 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo tried to play through a right ankle injury before Nick Mullens took over for the second half. Tevin Coleman also left San Francisco's win over the Jets with a late knee injury. Along with Lock and Sutton, the Broncos lost defensive end Dre'Mont Jones to a knee injury in their defeat at Pittsburgh. Washington guard Brandon Scherff, who left early in Arizona with a knee injury, was among the offensive linemen hurt around the NFL on Sunday.
Gostkowski finally delivers in Titans' 16-14 win at Denver
Denver Broncos inside linebacker Josey Jewell (47) celebrates his stop of Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry during the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, in Denver. (AP Photo/Jack Dempsey)DENVER – New kicker Stephen Gostkowski avoided a disastrous debut with the Tennessee Titans in the nick of time. The Titans escaped Denver with a 16-14 victory Monday night on Gostkowski’s 25-yard field goal with 17 seconds left after he’d missed four kicks, one in each quarter. Gostkowski missed three field goals: wide left, wide right and a block, and he missed an extra point. And Gostkowski became the first kicker to miss three field goals and a PAT in the same game since Mason Crosby missed four field goals and a PAT for the Packers against the Lions in 2018.
