The following is a list of inactives for Week 4 (September 30-October 1) and the fantasy implications of all the major injuries:
Oct. 1, 8:30pm EST
Fantasy take: Kenny Watson will start in the absence of Johnson. He's a viable fantasy option despite a touch matchup.
New England Patriots
Inactives: WR Kelley Washington, RB Laurence Maroney, G Steve Neal, T Ryan O'Callaghan, DT Santonio Thomas, DT Kareem Brown, LB Chad Brown.
Fantasy take: Sammy Morris will start in the absence of Maroney and is a nice fantasy option against a vulnerable Cincinnati defense. Heath Evans will also see more work out of the backfield.
8:15 pm EST
4 pm EST
Fantasy take: Bryant Johnson will start in the absence of Boldin. He's worth using in leagues with 12-plus teams.
Inactives: DE Jeff Charleston, CB Michael Coe, DB Brannon Condren, RB Clifton Dawson, WR Roy Hall, DT Dan Klecko, DT Quinn Pitcock, LB Clint Session
Kansas City Chiefs
Inactives: CB Rashad Barksdale, LB Keyaron Fox, WR Eddie Kennison, DT James Reed, DB Benny Sapp, T Herbert Taylor, QB Tyler Thigpen (3rd QB).
1 pm EST
Inactives: K Rhys Lloyd, QB Troy Smith (3rd QB), CB Samari Rolle, RB Cory Ross, RB Mike Anderson, T Jonathan Ogden, DE Trevor Pryce, LB Edgar Jones.
Fantasy take: Patrick Crayton will continue to start in the absence of Glenn. Greg Ellis is active and will see his first action of the season.
Fantasy take: Kevin Jones is active and will share carries with Tatum Bell. Mike Furrey will start and Shaun McDonald will move into the slot with Johnson out of action.
Fantasy take: Thomas will miss his second consecutive start, so Channing Crowder has increased value in IDP leagues.
Fantasy take: Daunte Culpepper will make his first start in silver and black and is a viable option in larger fantasy leagues. JaMarcus Russell is the third quarterback.
