Fantasy Football Week 9 Injury Recap and Fantasy Impact

If you enjoy this post, follow @HarutNFL_FFBall for more information, advice, and much more fantasy football related. A couple notes to begin with.

-A.J. Green hinted that he may play more snaps this Thursday against the Browns.

-Giovani Bernard is questionable at best for Thursday, but my guess would be he sits out. Hill still a borderline RB1 if he sits out. It becomes much more tricky if Bernard plays depending on usage as I believe they won't rush him out there.

-Reggie Bush should be good to go after missing the last game in London and resting this bye week. Early reports on Calvin Johnson look good too.

-Charles Sims should be active next week which makes Rainey a risky roll of the dice. Sims is risky too until we know more about the situation.

-There is nothing to worry about with Philip Rivers. He has a bye week and should be good to go; he was taken out because of the score.



Nick Foles, QB, PHI

  • Injury: Collarbone
  • Status: Out
  • Depth Chart: Starter
  • Back-up: Mark Sanchez
  • News: Nick Foles left the game against the Texans after starting off pretty well and did not return. Further testing revealed he has a broken collarbone and will be out for quite some time if not all season.
  • Fantasy ramification: Sanchez didn't look too bad filling in for Foles so I think he's worth a shot in really deep leagues or two quarterback leagues. He'll be a matchup-based starter at best until we see more out of him, but in Chip Kelly's high powered offense there is some upside here. Keep an eye on this one.


Running Backs:

Arian Foster, RB, HOU

  • Injury: Groin
  • Status: Questionable
  • Depth Chart: Starter
  • Back-up: Alfred Blue
  • News: Foster left the game against the Eagles and was visibly frustratd, but did not return.
  • Fantasy ramification: This is quite the interesting one. If you are an Arian Foster owner, I would definitely put in a claim for Alfred Blue right now. The Texans have a bye next week so Foster will have two weeks to heal. If you're not a Foster owner, it just depends on your need at this point. The waiver claim could end up going to waste, but we also do know Foster's injury history so worth a shot. Alfred Blue will definitely be the workhorse if Foster misses any time. Further testing may be done so we could get word on Foster's injury severity as early as Monday afternoon.

Lamar Miller, RB, MIA

  • Injury: Shoulder
  • Status: Questionable
  • Depth Chart: Starter
  • Back-up: Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas
  • News: Lamar Miller exited the game against the Chargers with a shoulder injury and did not return. It was reported that he even struggled to put a shirt on after the game. He will undergo an MRI Monday morning.
  • Fantasy ramification: Lamar Miller's status isn't looking good for Week 10 at this point. MRI should reveal more, but for now Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will handle duties at the running-back position if Miller misses any time. The problem here is I see Joe Philbin holding a RBBC if Miller misses any time as he did all last season with Miller and Thomas. If I was going to bet on one of them, it would be Daniel Thomas. Note: I wouldn't be betting very much.



Wide Receivers:

Wes Welker, WR, DEN

  • Injury: Back
  • Status: Questionable
  • Depth Chart: Starter
  • Back-up: Cody Latimer
  • News: Welker left the game late against the Patriots and did not return, but might have if the game wasn't out of hand.
  • Fantasy ramification: Wes Welker wasn't producing much for our fantasy teams to start off with. Even if he does miss time, I don't see any value in Cody Latimer just yet unless you're in a deeper league. Even if Welker does play, he still hasn't show to be much of a factor in any of the Broncos' games after returning.
