On any given NFL weekend, many players score touchdowns. Most of them are frequently started on fantasy football rosters.

The players whose success leads to the imminent demise of countless fantasy teams. All season long, we'll be tracking and crowning a "That Helps No One" winner each week on NFL Fantasy LIVE. Below are the top candidates for Week 4.
Sticking with Oakland, McGloin later continued the fantasy frustration by throwing a touchdown to Andre Holmes. Now, Holmes was someone I was keeping my eye on, but I wanted to see more before pumping him up. I guess now might be the time to consider him in deeper leagues, but as for his touchdown in Week 4 -- That Helps No One.
How irrelevant was Manuel's late touchdown to Williams? Combined they aren't even owned in seven percent of NFL.com fantasy leagues. To make matters worse, Williams' touchdown came on the first play of the drive, taking away any chances for actual fantasy commodities like Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller or Sammy Watkins to get more yards or fantasy points. Thanks Mike Williams ... for nothing.
This one hurt for fantasy owners and Bears fans. With time-running out during the first half of a shootout with the Green Bay Packers, Jay Cutler found Bennett near the goal line for what appeared to (possibly) be a touchdown. Unfortunately, Micah Hyde was blocking the camera's view of the goal line, and the officials couldn't confirm if Bennett scored or not. Instead, time expired and the Bears went into halftime empty handed ... along with all of Bennett and Cutler's fantasy owners.
