Here’s a rundown of the injuries for the games this weekend.
Jay Cutler (CHI) – Cutler is out again for the game against the Colts. Nobody really cares because Brian Hoyer is better than Cutler anyway.
Trevor Siemian (DEN) – The shoulder is still bothering Siemian significantly and he’s listed as questionable for the game on Sunday afternoon. That’s the problem here, a late game with a GTD for a QB that isn’t that good for fantasy. Stay away from this guy. Update: Siemian is now ruled out for tomorrow’s game. Paxton Lynch is an emergency replacement for those who need him.
Cam Newton (CAR) – Newton is listed as out for the game on Monday, as he hasn’t yet moved forward in the concussion protocol. The Panthers are going with Derek Anderson in his absence, who looked decent when he came into the game last week.
Arian Foster (MIA) – It looks like Foster is going to miss one more game, as he’s listed as doubtful. Jay Ajayi took over the reins in last week’s committee and will most likely get most of the work for this week in fantasy football.
Charles Sims (TB) – Sims is going to be a GTD for the Monday night match-up against the Panthers. Hopefully we’ll hear more after the practice today but it may be time to find another option. Update: Looks like Sims is not going to play on Monday night. He is now listed as doubtful. Time to find someone else.
Rashad Jennings (NYG) – All week it was back and forth with Jennings. He’s going to play…now, he’s not going to play. Apparently, he’s close but it is now looking doubtful that the vet gets back in there…and what is his job going to be when he gets back, anyway? Ugh.
Latavius Murray (OAK) – Murray has come down with a turf toe and will not play this week. This may be a blessing in disguise because he was probably the most boring starting RB so far. If either DeAndre Washington or Jalen Richard shows us top notch stuff, we may not see much of Murray the rest of the year.
Matt Forte (NYJ) – The vet is good to go for the game against the Steelers. He’s just banged up, which tends to happen after getting pummeled on the football field for so many years.
Dwayne Washington (DET) – It appears that Washington will not play this week, which puts Theo Riddick back in the spotlight. Zach Zenner gets some play, as well, but the Lions are going against the Eagles, who have excelled on D in 2016.
Ryan Mathews (PHI) – Mathews is no longer even on the Eagles injury report, so he’ll be out there tomorrow. The question is, ‘How much action is he going to get?’ Wendell Smallwood looked good when he took over last game. Will the trend toward the rookie continue?
LeSean McCoy (BUF) – McCoy is questionable for the game against the Rams. Ooof, tough match-up! According to McCoy, there’s no way that he’s going to miss the game.
Kenneth Dixon (BAL) – The rookie is finally back, after suffering the knee injury during the summer. It appears that the Ravens are going to ease him into the fray, which they can do after Terrence West had a solid game last week. If Dixon pops off, though, he could take this job and run with it.
Benny Cunningham (LA) – Not that Cunningham, who is listed as questionable, is in any of our plans this week in fantasy football but if he doesn’t play, then Todd Gurley will get it all.
Jonathan Stewart (CAR) – Stewart has been ruled out for Monday night’s game. Fozzy Whitaker and Cameron Artis-Payne get another week at the wheel.
Dez Bryant (DAL) – The Cowboys are keeping Bryant as a questionable tag, even though he didn’t practice at all this week. It looks like he’ll miss another week.
Alshon Jeffery (CHI) – The Bears wideout who is always limited at practice is listed as questionable. He’ll most likely play, and therefore should be in our lineups, but this is exactly why some of us stayed away from the big talent.
Julian Edelman (NE) – Edelman popped up on the injury report after Thursday’s practice for the foot that has bothered him since last year. He’s not going to miss the game but this is something to keep an eye on.
Quincy Enunwa (NYJ) – For awhile there, it seemed like Enunwa was going to join his teammate and miss the game against the Steelers. Now, all reports are saying that he should be fine.
Eric Decker (NYJ) – This is the teammate who will not play. Decker is out indefinitely.
Stefon Diggs (MIN) – All of us who thought we were getting a savior in the late rounds of our drafts with Diggs are beginning to get frustrated. His play has slowed down and now he’s listed as doubtful for the game against the Texans.
Eddie Royal (CHI) – Royal didn’t practice at all this week and doesn’t look good for the game against the Colts. If he misses it, then we’ll see more of Cameron Meredith. What? Who?
Kevin White (CHI) – Another Chicago wideout who is going to miss time. White fractured his fibula and was put on IR this week. Ouch!
Devin Funchess (CAR) – Are we still talking about this guy? Funchess came into 2016 as a nice sleeper pick for fantasy and has done absolutely zilch. He was on the injury report with a foot problem but put in a full practice on Friday. He’ll be out there on Monday to disappoint us some more.
Clive Walford (OAK) – The Raiders TE is listed as questionable and truly looks like a GTD. Hopefully we can find an alternative because this is one of the afternoon games.
Rob Gronkowski (NE) – The Gronkster is still limited but he’ll be out there on Sunday. Hopefully he gets more than one catch this week.
Antonio Gates (SD) – Gates put in some limited practices this week and could actually play. Most likely another GTD for that match-up against the Raiders. The Chargers are okay if he can’t go because Hunter Henry has looked great in Gates’ absence.
Jordan Cameron (MIA) – Cameron is still out with the concussion. His playing days could very well be over.
Eric Ebron (DET) – Ebron has been dealing with injuries all season, which has put a damper on his breakout. He’s listed as out.
Zach Miller (CHI) – Do the Bears have any receiving options not on the injury report? Miller is listed as questionable but it looks like he’s going to play.
Zach Ertz (PHI) – Ertz is not on the injury report for this week. Coming off the rib injury that kept him out for a couple of games, he looks to climb right back on Carson Wentz train against a subpar Lions D.
Larry Donnell (NYG) – Donnell has been ruled out for the week, which elevates Will Tye in the pecking order. Tye looked solid in the game last week and may be a good fill-in for guys like Walford or Gates if they can’t go tomorrow.
Tyler Eifert (CIN) – Just as he was practicing again, Eifert came down with a back injury. He’s been ruled out for this week but apparently it’s not a big issue, so maybe we’ll get him back next week.
Virgil Green (DEN) – Green was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. He’s another GTD in an afternoon game, so this seems to be a trend for TEs this week in fantasy football.
