Hey Razzballers, Reid here fresh off a personal bye week ready to give you guys an updated injury report for the Sunday and Monday Night games.
#BillsMafia is injured with pure confusion after watching the Saints just run all over Buffalo and the reaction from the coaching staff who benched Tyrod Taylor for 5th Round Rookie selection Nathan Peterman. Seriously. I have no idea how it’s going to play out, but I have a gut feeling he’s going to sling it out there regardless of the consequences, so we might see a boost for Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones (my extreme sleeper who will totally win you your league in the playoffs).
Corey Coleman will be suiting up after returning from a broken hand he suffered earlier this season. Although, playing Sacksonville might be a tough returning spot for him. I’d stash him for ROS though.
Danny Fucking Woodhead will be dressing for Baltimore and I believe both Baltimore RB’s should be owned and started this week. Both Woodhead and Alex Collins have a decent matchup against the Packers.
Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones will miss this game at the minimum against the Ravens. This means you rascals who held onto your late round sleeper in Jamaal Williams will be able to start him this week (Finally!).
Here is your weekly report that Jordan Reed suffered another setback with his hamstring injury. Seriously though, every year he suffers a lingering injury that gets worse when you need him the most and then he puts up great numbers in 1.25 quarters of play when you have him on your bench. Some things never change. Also, the rest of the roster for Washington looks like they’re on the injury report.
I mentioned it earlier, but Zay Jones will be back this week and, putting my homer cap aside, I actually like him in this spot. He’s a sneaky flex play that you’ll be thanking me for come Sunday night.
Philip Rivers should be a good to go and has cleared concussion protocol. He gets a matchup against the Bills where frankly they give up points and yards lately in every possible way. Aaron Ekeler could be a good waiver wire pickup this week.
Still looks like Chris Hogan will be out for the Pats this week. As mentioned on the RazzBlitz Podcast, Rex Burkhead is THE Pats RB you want for this week. The Hogan injury should be healed up by the time fantasy playoffs come around.
Cowboys fans – Seriously. Your owner is this generation’s Al Davis (not in his prime) and Ezekiel Elliot is finally serving his suspension by going to “Europe” to “clear his head and train” which has me raising red flags all over the place. Both Sean Lee and Tyron Smith are not playing this week, so I expect the Eagles to run the Cowboys out of their own building. As I’ve stated on Twitter and in the RazzBlitz Podcast, start every Eagles player this week and sit most of your Cowboys.
Devonta Freeman won’t be a go this week. Expect a heavy dose of Tevin Coleman on MNF and some serious passing attack by Matt Ryan. I think this is going to be a high-scoring aerial assault in primetime.
This isn’t an injury note, but a TMZ video was just released showing Jarvis Landry shoving the mother of his child with the 4-month old in the back seat. This is something that I expect the league office to review and eventually lay a suspension of some kind against Landry. If you own Jarvis, I would keep a close eye on the news around this as it could come as early as next week.
That’s it for this week on the injury front. Post comments or questions or concerns in the comments section below and I’ll try and answer as many as possible since I have a wedding to attend this weekend. Thanks for reading everyone!
