New England Patriots defensive end Matt Judon tore his lower bicep tendon during a 38-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, ESPN reported Sunday night.
Judon was injured late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against Dallas. He did not return to action, and a timetable for his return is not yet known, per ESPN's report.
NFL Network reported that Judon will be getting an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. He is expected to miss time regardless of what the results yield.
In four games this season, Judon has totaled 13 tackles and four sacks, tied for fourth most in the NFL.
Judon, 31, is in his third season with the Patriots after spending five with the Baltimore Ravens. He posted a career-high 15.5 sacks during the 2022 campaign.
New England also lost rookie cornerback Christian Gonzalez to a shoulder injury on Sunday. Gonzalez was the 17th overall pick at this year's draft.
Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner rushed 11 times for 52 yards while adding a four-yard reception off of two targets in Sunday's 35-16 loss to the 49ers. Due to San Francisco taking a quick lead, the Cardinals had no choice but to abandon the run game in the second half. Despite this, Conner actually averaged 4.7 YPC on his 11 attempts, and no other Arizona running back received more than one carry. As the current RB13 in the entire NFL, Conner is averaging a healthy 5.1 YPC and will look to further cement his role as the team's No. 1 RB heading into next week's matchup against Cincinnati.
Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Michael Wilson caught all seven of his targets for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 35-16 loss to San Francisco. After coming off his best game of the season in Week 3 against Dallas, Wilson was able to obtain the first and second touchdowns of his career in the Cardinals' Week 4 loss. He finished with seven targets on the day, good for third on the team behind Marquise Brown and Zach Ertz. At this point, the rookie has a very good chance of overtaking Rondale Moore as the No. 2 wideout if he hasn't already. He'll look to build on this breakout game in Week 5 when Arizona hosts the Cincinnati Bengals.
Buffalo Bills running back James Cook took 12 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown with a 48-yard catch in Week 4's dominant 48-20 win over the Miami Dolphins. Cook and Josh Allen nearly botched an exchange before the quarterback gave him a push from behind to aid a one-yard touchdown rush, which was Cook's first of the year following a long booth review. Besides a 48-yard reception that facilitated a field-goal drive, the 24-year-old elusive back took a backseat to a sensational Bills passing attack on Sunday. It's worth noting, however, that Cook handled all three of Buffalo's rushing attempts inside the 10-yard line, which bodes extremely well for his future prospects. Though Latavius Murray and Damien Harris remain frustrating presences, Cook is on the rise while on pace for over 1,500 scrimmage yards heading into Week 5's London meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown had seven receptions on 10 targets for 96 yards in Sunday's 35-16 loss to the 49ers. Brown was listed as questionable (thumb) heading into Sunday's game but was able to overcome the injury to help his team in Week 4. Even though he couldn't extend his three-game touchdown streak, Brown obtained season-highs in both receptions and yards. Through four games this year, Hollywood is averaging 5.3 receptions and 59.8 yards per game. He has become the de facto new No. 1 wideout for Arizona following the offseason trade of DeAndre Hopkins and will look to continue building rapport with quarterback Joshua Dobbs in Week 5 against Cincinnati.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis caught each of his three targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Week 4's 48-20 win over the Miami Dolphins. It looked like Davis was in for one of his signature blow-up games after he got behind the defense for an 18-yard touchdown on the game's opening possession. However, he wasn't targeted again until late in the third quarter while Stefon Diggs tormented Miami's defenders all afternoon for 120 yards and three scores. Davis brought in a 34-yard pass to close the period and pad a fine fantasy day, which was his third straight with a TD catch. The 24-year-old deep threat will try to carry the scoring prowess into next Sunday's London matchup against a beatable Jacksonville Jaguars secondary.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs completed 28 of 41 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 35-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He also added 48 rushing yards on 12 carries. Dobbs was able to keep his team in the game for a while against a stout San Francisco defense, but it wasn't enough in the Week 4 blowout. In the third quarter, his two touchdown strikes to rookie wide receiver Michael Wilson helped make it a one-possession game but by then it was too little too late. With Kyler Murray (knee) not expected back for the foreseeable future, Dobbs will look to put this one behind him when the Cincinnati Bengals come to town in Week 5.
Dynasty | Rams rookie receiver Puka Nacua had nine catches for 163 yards and the game winning overtime touchdown in the Rams win against the Colts. Dynasty Analysis: Any questions dynasty managers may have now concerning his value are likely just based on stubbornness as Nacua has set the record for most catches by a rookie in the first four games of an NFL career with a whopping 39. With those 39 catches and 501 receiving yards, Nacua is a rocketship in our dynasty rankings with no ceiling in sight at the moment. Sure, Cooper Kupp could take away some targets. However, Nacua is here to stay.
Dynasty | Panthers running back Miles Sanders had just 19 rushing yards, three catches, and 13 receiving yards in the Panthers loss to Minnesota. Dynasty Analysis: Sanders now has just 158 rushing yards (on under three yards per carry) through four games this season. The Panthers offensive line can't block a chair at the moment and Sanders is suffering as a result. Today was a low point as Chuba Hubbard actually had one more carry on the day as well. Sanders is quickly becoming bench fodder in dynasty leagues and his ranking of RB22 is heading in the wrong direction.
Dynasty | Saints running back Alvin Kamara returned to action and caught 13 passes for 33 yards, while rushing for another 51 in the Saints loss to Tampa Bay. Dynasty Analysis: Having Kamara back was a welcome sight to fantasy owners. While the counting stats weren't much in terms of total yards, the 13 catches and 14 targets were gold in PPR leagues. The Saints surprisingly had Derek Carr back today and while their offense sputtered for much of the game, Kamara quickly returned to feature back status and ceded only one carry to Kendre Miller in the game. He remains a solid get in dynasty leagues for contenders as our RB27.
Dynasty | Texans receiver Tank Dell had just one catch for 16 yards in Houston's win against Pittsburgh. Dynasty Analysis: Dell took a backseat to Nico Collins in this one, making it clear the Texans don't have a true WR1 at the moment. While added a handful of yards on two carries, this is going to throw some cold water on Dell's value this week. Still, we've seen enough to know the kid can play and his ranking of WR57 still may be too low.
Dynasty | Cam Akers had 40 rushing yards, two catches and 11 receiving yards in his Vikings debut. Dynasty Analysis: Akers had some positive gains but his seven touches were far behind the 18 of Alexander Mattison. Time will tell if the tide turns in his favor but Mattison has been much more effective the past two weeks for Minnesota after a dreadful first two weeks of the season. Akers is clearly a "hold" candidate at the moment as his value continues to be in flux.
Dynasty | Steelers running back Najee Harris had 71 rushing yards, one catch and 32 receiving yards in Pittsburgh's blowout loss to Houston. Dynasty Analysis: Harris just hasn't been great this year but this was a pretty respectable line considering he had just 15 touches on the day. The Steelers may be without Kenny Pickett for a bit moving forward and if that's the case, it could open a window for Harris that he would just absolutely have to make good on to salvage his dynasty value as our RB16.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 18 of 30 passes for 203 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions against the New York Jets on Sunday, Oct. 1. A third interception was erased by a defensive holding penalty. Mahomes also ran seven times for 51 yards.
Dynasty | CJ Stroud completed 16-of-30 passes for 306 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Houston's win against Pittsburgh. Dynasty Analysis: Stroud's completion percentage wasn't great today but he made big plays when he needed to. What's even more impressive is the fact the rookie has now thrown for six touchdowns and has yet to throw an interception on the season. With Nico Collins and Tank Dell forming a young and exciting wide receiver duo, it seems the arrow is pointing straight up for our QB14.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs roasted the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, catching 6-of-7 targets for 120 yards and three touchdowns in the 48-20 victory. Diggs put his fingerprints all over this one. He broke free for an 11-yard score early in the second quarter after drawing a pass interference penalty earlier in the drive. On Buffalo's highlight of the day among many nominees, Diggs shrugged off an illegal touching flag to wrestle a ball away from two Miami adversaries for an incredible 55-yard touchdown catch-and-run to cap off a stellar 107-yard, two-score first half. The 29-year-old superstar made a sweet move to juke a defender and add a third score from 13 yards out for good measure. Diggs' 16-game pace through four games shows a 124/1596/16 receiving line. That'll do. The Jacksonville Jaguars await in Week 5 next Sunday at their home away from home in London, where Diggs will be a WR1.
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle ended up with a 9-yard catch on his lone touch and target in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
San Francisco 49ers WR Ronnie Bell, FB Kyle Juszczyk and WR Willie Snead IV each ended up cashing in their lone targets for a reception in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. Bell had a 7-yard catch, Snead had a 9-yard reception and Juszczyk ended up with a 4-yard grab, while also running twice for three yards.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed 21-of-25 passes for 320 yards and four touchdowns with four carries for an additional 17 yards and a score in Week 4's 48-20 overpowering of the Miami Dolphins. Allen's systematic display saw him hook up with Gabe Davis for an 18-yard touchdown before finding Stefon Diggs for an 11-yard score early in the second quarter. Diggs did most of the work after the catch on Allen's third TD of the half, but it goes down as a 55-yard passing play, nonetheless. Allen kept his foot on the gas in the second half, flicking a pass into the end zone for his fourth TD and third to Diggs, who made life miserable for Miami's defense on Sunday. Finally, the 27-year-old superstar put a bow on a wonderful performance with a late 11-yard rushing score. Allen and the Bills will look to keep firing on all cylinders in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars across the pond.
San Francisco 49ers LBs Dre Greenlaw and Fred Warner each recorded 10 total tackles and eight solo stops in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
