It’s Friday the 13th (of September) and the doctor is in. Good thing I am since there are plenty of patients filling the hallways of the Fantasy Football Clinic. That said, let’s get going on this week’s rounds. Patients will know who I am right away as I’ll be the doctor wearing a Burger King crown on my head. Only because it’s my birthday today.

The Patriots are banged up. Horribly. Tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, arm) might be back next week but it’s not confirmed at this point. Fantasy owners rejoice! So shall Tom Brady! The Patriots looked really pathetic offensively last night against the Jets. Brady threw for 185 yards with one touchdown. Yeah, that’s it.

The last time we talked about this conundrum I was telling you in my Updated Overall Rankings that I already had Le’Veon Bell pretty low in my rankings and without any more clear cut news about what kind of time he’d miss, I had a hard time moving him down from what was already considered a low RB26. Amazing how two days can change things, eh? I haven’t moved him down my list yet – I figure it would be good to see how many other injuries happen this weekend for preseason week 3 before I proceed and see who performs best amongst his backups – but he’s being said to have a lisfranc injury. They say he’ll be out only 6-8 weeks. I’m thinking back to MJD last year and wondering how much I believe in that 6 or that 8. Granted, the Jags weren’t playing for anything but there were always hopes/rumors he’d come back in season and he never did, though his injury was much later in the year. All this to say, a lot can happen over those 6 to 8 to 10 to…ok, ok a lot can happen over those weeks. Maybe he loses his starting role. Maybe the Steelers look so far out of contention that they want him at 100% before he comes out and decide to shut him down for this rookie year to preserve him. Maybe when he comes back, it becomes a 3 to 4 ring circus of RBs in that Steelers backfield and you’re left wondering what to do with him. As a whole, I’m only a buyer if he goes on IR and my league has an IR spot. It’s the only way to ensure he’s worth the headache at this point. Anyways, here’s what other news I’m hearing on the grapevine for 2013 Fantasy Football…and here we are again. I’ll keep telling you until you do it! Go join/commish a Razzball Commenter League! The life of your family depends on it! Not really! I don’t know why I’m shouting anymore! But please make/join a league! Ok, let’s move on!

With the bye weeks finally behind us, now all you have to worry about are injuries.  Unfortunately, there are quite a few of those which makes week 12 an interesting one, especially when looking at the waiver wire. Remember Beanie Wells?  Although he wasn’t all that fantastic before his injury this year, he still has […]

The Arizona Cardinals must’ve got a clean bill of health from their last visit to the clinic.  So clean, they went out of there way to avoid Michael Crabtree every time he caught the ball.  Michael went for 72 yards and two touchdowns on 5 receptions during a night in which I saw more fumbled […]

…Hallelujah! Hey everyone!  Chris Johnson’s back!  Thanks, in part, to a matchup against the second worst run defense in the league, Chris Johnson ran for 195 yards with a pair of TDs.  He should have had two more TDs too, but Jamie Harper has been getting in the way recently.  If only Johnson was playing […]

I don’t know how many of you own Maurice Jones-Drew but I’m sure that you must be as disappointed as I am about his injury in the first quarter against Oakland this past Sunday. He went down with a foot injury but later appeared on the sidelines with crutches and a walking boot. MJD went […]
