Sunday morning updates - Week 4

Good morning, Fools. It's a beautiful day in Dallas; and no matter where you are, it's a beautiful day for fantasy football! Let's get right to it...

In general, as of this morning, it looks like most of the players we have been concerned about will be playing today.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport said he's heard Arian Foster will be a full go today against the Bills. Go ahead and stow away Alfred Blue for another day. You'll need him if you're a Foster owner.

Looks like it's all-systems-go for Jamaal Charles on Monday night. Again, though, setbacks (and surprises) happen. If you're like me, you have Knile Davis in the wings just in case. But if you don't, there's risk involved in waiting on Charles. Also, while he's expected to play, he probably won't get a full complement of carries. So don't expect the 2013 version Charles this week. Hopefully that guy will return soon, though.

Doug Martin will be back as the starter in Tampa Bay, while Mike Glennon handles the QB duties. Vincent Jackson (wrist) should also be in the lineup as usual.

Both Megatron and Brandon Marshall are expected to play.

Dez Bryant will suit up as usual.

Roddy White will be active, but at his ripe old age, I'm a little concerned about him. I will be benching him today in favor of two guys with similar pedigrees -- Reggie Wayne and Marques Colston.

Eric Decker is expected to be active, but used sparingly. 

Rapoport says Vernon Davis will play today as well, but other reports urge caution. No doubt the Niners need him against the Eagles, but Davis' ankle injury normally would keep a player out for 2-3 weeks. He's only missed one game, so don't be shocked if he winds up inactive at the eleventh hour.

Ladarius Green could miss the tasty matchup with the Jags, further boosting Antonio Gates' prospects this week.

Jake Locker is a no-go, which leaves the Titans' offense in the care of Charlie Whitehurst. Woe unto you who playeth with Tennessee receivers...

That's it for now, boys and girls. I'll be tweeting inactives and other breaking news shortly. Good luck today, and I'll see you on the other side!
