NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 11

TE_Jack_Doyle_IND_1

I’m sure 95 percent of the owners out there figured that Jack Doyle would’ve been the tight end to have in Indianapolis, but the team forgot it wasn’t Andrew Luck who had the chemistry with Doyle – it was Jacoby Brissett.

WR_Tyreek_Hill_KCC_2

Kansas City has not yet given any other updates regarding Tyreek Hill’s injury, so we don’t know the seriousness of it at this point. If Hill is forced to miss Week 9 against Cleveland, then Sammy Watkins would become the team’s No. 1 receiver, with Chris Conley being the likely starter opposite him.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 7 Injury Fallout

RB Sony Michel NEP

The Patriots have not released any information about Michel’s injury, but his inability to put weight on his leg is certainly concerning. He also appeared to be in a lot of pain following the injury, so don’t be surprised if he is forced to miss significant time. That would be a big blow to the Patriots, who have already placed Rex Burkhead and Jeremy Hill on IR.

Coming in for Fournette, Yeldon compiled 51 yards rushing and 18 receiving with a touchdown. If Fournette does in fact stay on the injured list, Yeldon is a must have.
