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.

Check out the blog post for video of those two plus Kendall Wright of the TitansKelvin Benjamin of the PanthersDavante Adams of the Packers and the ColtsT.Y. Hilton's close brushes with the end zone.

Ben Roethlisberger takes advantage of matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Facing the same Buccaneers defense that got shredded by Matt Ryan and company on national TV in Week 3, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger turned in his best game of the season, throwing for 314 yards and three touchdowns.

So that's two big-yardage games in four. The other -- a 365-yard effort in Week 1 -- came against a Browns defense that has also struggled against the pass. The Ravens and Panthers, meanwhile, had fared pretty well prior to Week 4.

Through four games, Roethlisberger is looking like one of the more predictable matchup plays at the quarterback position, which means you'll probably want to keep him active for Week 5 at Jacksonville.

Heath Miller's 10 grabs a sign of things to come?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers tight end Heath Miller certainly made his presence known Week 4 against Tampa Bay, catching 10 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. But where did it come from, and why should we believe it will continue?

Those are the questions I'm asking myself today, and I don't have many answers. We've seen Miller play the role of safety valve for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger before -- he had a 10-catch game last year as well -- but it hasn't been regular enough for me to put any stock into it. And while Roethlisberger threw for 314 yards in this game, a marked improvement over the previous two, he threw for 365 in Week 1, when Miller had his worst game of the season with three catches for 26 yards.

I'd rather not get sucked into a guessing game with him. He's fine as a bye-week replacement or in leagues that require more than one tight end, but otherwise, I'm leaving him be.

Antonio Brown is the greatest
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The SteelersAntonio Brown was the seventh-best wide receiver in fantasy last year, so understandably, big things were expected of him coming into 2014. But with the way he's started the season, he might be looking at top-five or even top-three status come season's end.

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.

Shaun Suisham finally blows one - and it proves costly
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The first missed field goal in 25 attempts for Steelers placekicker Shaun Suisham on Sunday proved to be critical.

Suisham clanked one off the left upright at the end of the first half and the team lost by three. He had already nailed a 25-yarder in the first quarter and was perfect three extra-point tries.
