A couple of high-profile players finally woke up from their funk in Week 4 to post some impressive numbers for the team owners who showed patience with them.
Quarterback Brett Favre threw for 289 yards and an impressive six touchdowns while Chiefs back Larry Johnson rushed for 198 yards and two touchdowns. I've got both those players in my Register media fantasy football league and it was a relief to see them post those kind of stats.
Other players who posted rare solid numbers were Rams back Steven Jackson who had 110 yards and a touchdown and Redskins receiver Santana Moss who had eight receptions for 145 yards against Dallas.
All four of these players should be back on track now and post solid numbers on a consistent basis. However, note that Favre won't be available this weekend with the Jets on the bye along with the Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams.

Injuries also continue to mount up with Anquan Boldin's status uncertain after being injured in the Jets game, Bears No. receiver Brandon Lloyd out with a knee injury and Steelers back Rashard Mendenhall on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury on Monday night. Mendenhall started for the injured Willie Parker who could miss another week. Mewelde Moore will fill in as well as back Najeh Davenport who was re-signed by the Steelers on Tuesday.

If you need a receiver for this coming weekend, consider Arizona's Steve Breaston who should step in for Boldin, Miles Austin who seems to be becoming popular in Dallas, Carolina's Muhsin Muhammad and San Francisco 49ers' Arnaz Battle. Also consider Seattle Seahawks receivers Bobby Engram and Deion Branch who have been injured all season but could return this weekend.

A back to consider who is still on several waiver wires is New Orleans Saints back Deuce McAllistar. After no contributions the first three weeks he had 73 yards and a touchdown last weekend.

Also note the Northeast Fantasy Football Radio Show returns this Thursday night (Oct. 2) from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on WICC-600. Get some of the best fantasy football advice for this coming weekend and breaking news on one of the hottest fantasy football shows in the industry.
