Hey gang. Nothing witty this time! Here’s the injury report for this week…
EVERYONE WATCHING MIAMI AT BALTIMORE – Seriously, this game is going to be painful to watch. I only see three viable plays for fantasy football tonight: Both defenses and Jarvis Landry. Sure somebody else could pop off, but the total for this game is 37 and honestly I’d be shocked if it went over (guaranteeing a 37-34 game now).
Stefan Diggs is questionable and is looking like he’ll be a game time decision for the Vikings eventual thumping of Cleveland in London. If he dresses, I think you have to start him, but temper expectations and keep an eye on it Saturday. Look for Kyle Rudolph to have a big game here.
Pierre Garcon didn’t practice on Wednesday and I’ll be honest with you guys, you shouldn’t start him this week. It’s a horrid matchup and C.J. Beathard is not the guy I’m relying on to put up numbers this week. Look elsewhere for your WR3/Flex position.
John Ross was a full participant in practice this week and could very well play. He’s in a great spot since Malik Hooker is out for the season. That being said, Cincy should be able to run all over Indy this week. There was some drama with Joe Mixon this week and Marvin Lewis could pull a Marvin Lewis here and run both Giovani Spaghetti Bernard and Jeremy Hill quite a bit just to spite Mixon. I’m nervous if I own Mixon.
Michael Thomas has some weird knee thing that Sean Payton said isn’t going to be an issue this week. This is shockingly not a great matchup as the Bears have been excellent in recent weeks on defense. I expect Thomas to still produce, but keep expectations under check.
Like 80% of the Washington defense: Seriously. Just look at the injury report. Should make for a high-scoring SNF game.
Did this report feel short? That’s because it was. There’s not a whole lot of injury news right now that I’m nervous about for the teams playing this week and I’m under the weather so the snark is also on the down-low.
Thanks for reading everyone. If you have any questions of concerns, please post in the comments section below and I’ll try and answer them as soon as possible.
