There are so many byes, injuries and updates this week – I picked the top 12 news stories… here we go!
1 Slim Foles (concussion) declared himself ready to play Sunday against the Raiders.
Impacts: Following Tuesday’s practice, during which Foles and Matt Barkley split first-team reps 50-50, Foles deemed himself ready to go against Oakland. The team will, of course, need to sign off on it, but Foles has been medically cleared and considering Matt Barkley is the only other option at quarterback — Michael Vick (hamstring) has been ruled out — it seems likely they will return Barkley under center for Sunday’s tilt.
buy or sell foles is a QB1 this week against the raiders
2 Blistr – Sidney Rice torn ACL done for year
Impacts: It’s worth noting that Rice ended the 2011 season on IR after suffering two concussion in three weeks.
buy or sell Golden Tate will put up the same numbers this week when they host the Bucs.
3 SLIM Head coach Mike McCarthy indicated he would like to give Starks more carries moving forward, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impacts: It’s highly unlikely that Starks will challenge for Eddie Lacy’s starting job, but it seems that McCarthy does want to even out the workload to some degree after Lacy carried 29 times to Starks’ seven in Sunday’s victory over the Vikings. Starks ran well in his first game since Week 3, so expect the ratio of carries in most cases to be closer to 2:1 rather than the roughly 4:1 distribution used in Sunday’s game. With the Packers running the ball often and effectively, and getting leads, consider a healthy Starks among the top group of running backs who do not currently start for their NFL team.
buy or sell you should be worried as an Eddie Lacy owner
4 BLISTR – Giants running backs coach Jerald Ingram said Tuesday that he believes Andre Brown (leg) will be activated and ready to go for the team’s Week 10 game against Oakland, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
Impacts: Though Brown had suggested he’ll be ready go Nov. 10, this is the first real indication from the team that he will be activated in time to face the Raiders. Brown recently said that he feels “great,” and while he’ll likely be eased into the backfield mix, there will be immediate flex appeal with Brown following the team’s Week 9 bye, given his proficiency at the goal line.
Buy or sell that Andre Brown is a top 20 back when he returns week 10
5 SLIM – : Percy Harvin was on track to play in Monday’s game against the Rams until his hip flared up Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com reports.
Impacts: When Harvin was ruled out last Saturday, it seemed like the Seahawks were just exercising caution, but apparently there was a slight setback with the hip. The team will gauge how he does in practice this week before making any decisions in regards to his availability for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers.
buy or sell – percy will play week 9
6 BLISTR – Zac Stacy suffered a sprained ankle towards the end of Monday’s 14-9 loss to the Seahawks.
Impacts: Stacy reportedly suffered the injury on the Rams’ second-to-last drive, and he tried to fight through it on the final drive of the game. He ultimately had to be removed in favor of Daryl Richardson, which indicates that the ankle could be an issue beyond Monday. Prior to exiting, Stacy racked up 134 yards on 26 carries against one of the better defensive units in the league. If the sprained ankle doesn’t turn out to be serious, Monday’s performance is great news for Stacy’s fantasy owners. The rookie looked fantastic throughout the night, repeatedly picking up chunks of yardage against one of the top defenses in the league. With Sam Bradford (knee) out for the season, Stacy could become the new centerpiece of the St. Louis offense. First, he’ll need to get healthy in time for Sunday’s game against the Titans.
buy or sell DRich is a must play if Stacy is out this weekend vs the Titans
7 SLIM – Tests on Julius Thomas’ injured ankle have come up negative, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson.
Impacts: The injury was never thought to be the dreaded high-ankle variety, but it did cause Thomas to leave Sunday’s game early, and therefore left him with his worst performance, 3/29/0, of the season. With the Broncos on bye this week, it sounds like the surprisingly fantastic tight end might be OK for the Broncos’ Week 10 game against the Chargers.
Buy or Sell – as a JThom owner you should be worried for week 10?
8 BLISTR – According to ESPN.com, Jimmy Graham’s (foot) injury is being described as a partially torn plantar fascia. Explained both Graham and head coach Sean Payton, there isn’t a significant risk of a more serious injury, if Graham continues to play on the sore foot. However, Graham will have to continue to deal with the pain.
Impacts: Graham was limited to only 18 snaps — most of them in the red zone — and was targeted a season-low three times Sunday against the Bills. While he caught all three passes, and converted two of them into scores, his lingering injury is certainly something with which to be concerned. Graham is simply too good to bench, even if hobbled, given his elite status as a red zone threat, but he becomes a much riskier option, if his foot injury continues to limit his snap count or his route-running abilities.
buy or sell that Jimmy is still the number one TE in fantasy despite the foot
9 SLIM – Brandon Gibson is out for the season after tearing his patella tendon, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Impacts: Gibson is slated to undergo surgery Monday, with Rishard Matthews now a candidate to see added work in the Miami offense in tandem with Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.
Buy or Sell – Brian Hartline is the best fantasy WR in Miami
10 BLISTR – Case Keenum will start at quarterback for the Texans on Sunday against the Colts, ESPN’s Tania Ganguli reports.
Impacts: Coach Gary Kubiak indicated Monday that the decision to start Keenum in Week 9 is not based on Matt Schaub’s (leg) health, so this looks like an assignment that could stick. Keenum completed 15-of-25 passes for 271 yards with a touchdown in Week 7′s 17-16 loss at Kansas City.
buy or sell this will hurt all of your fantasy players from houston
11 SLIM – Mike Williams (hamstring) has been placed on IR, the Buccaneers’ official site reports.
Impacts: Williams indicated this past Friday that he has a torn hamstring, and he’s now officially done for the season. As a result, Tiquan Underwood and Chris Owusu (foot) are next up for looks opposite the Bucs’ top wideout Vincent Jackson.
Buy or sell that VJax is the only WR – change that, the only buc worth owning now that Tampa Mike is out with the gout
12 BLISTR – Ray Rice has declared himself fully healthy, after being hampered by a hip flexor injury earlier this season, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impacts: Entering the Ravens’ bye in Week 8, Rice ranked 32nd among NFL running backs in fantasy points scored per game (non-PPR leagues) this season, thanks in large part to a 2.8 YPC mark in six games. The Ravens’ run-blocking has left plenty to be desired, but perhaps Rice playing through the injury has exacerbated the problem.
buy or sell that now that Rice is ‘fully healthy’ he will be an RB1 this week at the browns
