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

For the second straight game, he scored two touchdowns Week 4 against Tampa Bay, the second on a diving 27-yard grab over the top of a Buccaneers defender, and for the fourth straight game -- that's every single one, in case you've lost count -- he topped 90 yards, finishing with a season-high 131 on seven catches.
In other words, he turned in his best performance in what's already been a ridiculous season so far. Where does he go from here?
Having watched the game, I have to say I was also impressed by Markus Wheaton's ability to go get a pass, contorting his body as necessary, but he still has nothing on Brown. With no real threats to his targets, you can take Brown at face value in Fantasy.
The finger of blame for the Sunday loss to Tampa Bay certainly can't be pointed at prolific
Brown continued to run roughshod over opposing defensive backs by snagging seven passes for a game-best 131 yards. He grabbed a 27-yarder to the Buccaneers 8-yard-line late in the first quarter and continued to rack up the yards. He scored an 11-yard touchdown with a fine inside move with 15 seconds remaining in the quarter.
The best was yet to come. Brown simply outmaneuvered cornerback Alterraun Verner in the end zone with five minutes remaining in the second quarter for a 27-yard score, his fifth of the season.
Brown, who has 427 yards receiving in just four games, will try to remain on a roll next Sunday in Jacksonville.
Brown stretched out for a 30-yard grab on a second-quarter go route. He dragged his feet to secure his first touchdown, a 7-yarder in the back corner of the end zone early in the third quarter. Brown capped that quarter with another 7-yard scoring catch.
This was the 19th straight game in which Brown has caught at least five passes. Brown will look to keep rolling Week 4 against the Buccaneers.
Brown picked up a rush attempt and two catches on the team's first drive, but had to leave the game after taking a big hit. He returned during the second quarter after passing concussion tests. He didn't play a huge role until the last drive of the game. Brown made three receptions during the drive, gaining 51 yards. Brown was also the target of the game-ending interception. He finished with seven receptions for 90 yards. He also had two carries for 10 yards.
Brown will take on the Panthers Week 3.
