Weeks like this are the worst. Injuries are a daily occurrence in the NFL, but a week with so many big injuries to players who had been feel-good stories makes you want to reset your XBox and start the week over. We can start at the top with Jordan Hicks, a trendy DROY pick who’s now out for the year, but still managed to finish as LB2 for the week. Next is Henry Anderson, who cooled off after a hot start but was still a solid weekly DL option, now done for the year with a torn ACL. Despite the surprisingly successful return of JPP, the Giants lost two IDP contributors for the year in Jonathan Hankins and Jon Beason, who can unfortunately never stay healthy enough to be a reliable contributor. Finally, though he’s not done for the year, Sean Lee, got yet another concussion and is likely to miss this week’s game. Injuries can sometimes open up opportunities for clutch waiver pickups (and I would definitely look closely at Kiko Alonso, Uani’ Unga and Anthony Hitchens), but it’s never fun to say goodbye to players like this.
Here’s what I’m looking at heading into what will hopefully be a much healthier Week 10:Please, blog, may I have some more?
