Julian Edelman quiet on MNF by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
After three straight strong outings, Patriots receiver Julian Edelman was held to 23 receiving yards in Monday's loss at Kansas City. Edelman caught four of his eight targets and is up to 26 grabs this season.
Edelman cut his route short on Tom Brady's first interception, and he was unable to hang onto at least one catchable throw. Edelman will try to bounce back Sunday night against Cincinnati.
Brandon LaFell only bright spot for Patriots by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
Brandon LaFell led the Patriots in every receiving category in Monday's 41-14 loss to the Chiefs. He caught six of his 10 targets for a career-best 119 yards and a touchdown, producing his first 100-yard game since Week 5 last season when he played for Carolina.
A 6-3, 210-pounder, LaFell showed his strength late in the third quarter when he caught a slant and shed a tackle en route to a 44-yard score. This was only his third career 100-yard game.
LaFell will try to keep it going Week 5 when New England hosts the Bengals.
Dwayne Bowe has monster first half by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe entered Monday night's matchup with 72 receiving yards in two games played. He topped that in the first half against New England, snaring all five of his targets for 81 yards despite often being covered by Darrelle Revis.
Bowe was targeted once in the second half without a catch. He'll look for his first touchown Week 5 at San Francisco.
Donnie Avery out with groin injury by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
Chiefs receiver Donnie Avery left Monday's game against the Patriots in the fourth quarter with a groin injury and won't return. Avery caught both his targets for 46 yards before leaving.
Terrance Williams proves his worth by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
With quarterback Tony Romo delivering his best performance of the season Week 4 against New Orleans, Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams certainly answered the question of whether or not he deserves to be on your roster (see my post from Sept. 25).
Still, given the Cowboys' reliance on the running game this year, I'm still skeptical Romo will have enough games like this one where he's able to sustain both Williams and Dez Bryant while still giving Jason Witten and DeMarco Murray their usual share of the targets. And if that's the case, Bryant will come out ahead nine times out of 10.
That's just one of my Fantasy Football takeaways from Week 4. For more, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Jarrett Boykin a non-participant Monday by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
The Packers didn't practice Monday, but they still had to issue a practice report ahead of Thursday's game with the Vikings. Wideout Jarrett Boykin (groin) would not have been able to practice.
He was inactive Week 4 at Chicago.
FFT Blog: Who left points on the board in Week 4? by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
Over at the Fantasy Football Today blog, I noted a handful of players who left Fantasy points on the field in Week 4. Whether it was due to a play called off due to penalties or just an overthrow by a quarterback, a handful of guys could have helped you more than they did in this weekend.
The list is headlined by Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, who could have had two more touchdowns -- in addition to the two he already scored -- Sunday, if Ben Roethlisberger hit him in stride. Elsewhere, Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns' inability to hang on to the ball cost him another score, the second time that has happened in four games.
