TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 13

WR Amari Cooper DAL & CB Josh Norman WAS

Things don’t look good for Amari Cooper. His schedule is challenging, and don’t forget that Cooper isn’t 100 percent. He has been playing through a nagging knee injury during a good chunk of the season.

WR_Julio_Jones_ATL_1

We don’t know the severity of Julio Jones’ injury at the moment, but his ability to return to the game suggests that it’s not very serious. Still, the Falcons have a quick turnaround to play the Saints on Thanksgiving evening, so it’s worth keeping an eye on Jones’ status.

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 10

WR_Davante_Adams_GBP_2

Davante Adams has missed virtually the entire season... Can he get back after things and remind us why he was taken as the top wide receiver off the board or will his injuries continue to ravage his 2019 season?

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 9 Injury Fallout

QB Jacoby Brissett IND

We’ll have to wait for more information before we’ll know if Jacoby Brissett’s injury will sideline him for future games, but his inability to return against the Steelers suggests that his availability for Week 10 is in question. If Brissett is unable to play, then 11th-year veteran Brian Hoyer will get the start against the Dolphins.

GRAB BAG: Week 9

RB Raheem Mostert SF

Mostert had his highest number of carries since Week 3. If Breida or Wilson miss more time, Mostert is the main beneficiary of those vacant touches and with a Thursday night game against Arizona, a two-headed running game between Coleman and Mostert could emerge.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 8 Injury Fallout

RB Chase Edmonds ARI

Chase Edmonds left Sunday’s game against the Saints with a hamstring injury in the third quarter. He suffered the injury when he got hit by a defender during a blitz pickup. He jogged off the field under his own power, but he appeared to be limping on the sideline and did not return to the game.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 7 Injury Fallout

RB Kerryon Johnson DET

We’ll have to wait for Matt Patricia’s update to get a sense of Kerryon Johnson’s future availability, but it is concerning that he was unable to return to the game. If Johnson is sidelined for Week 8, then sixth-round rookie Ty Johnson would most likely get the start, although fourth-year back J.D. McKissic would also get significant snaps.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 6 Injury Fallout

WR Amari Cooper DAL & CB Josh Norman WAS

We don’t know the severity of Amari Cooper’s injury at this point, but his inability to return to the game warrants some concern. In addition, Cooper was listed on the injury report last week with a quad issue, so it’s likely that he aggravated that same injury.

GRAB BAG: Week 6

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

If there's a week that you can comfortably start you Skins - if you have any - it's Week 6 against the Dolphins. Even with Jay Gruden gone. Adrian Peterson is one of the elite players of this generation going up against one of the weakest defenses this season.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 5 Injury Fallout

QB Mason Rudolph PIT

Rudolph left Sunday’s game against the Ravens with a head injury in the third quarter. He suffered the injury when he was scrambling to extend a play and took a hard hit from safety Earl Thomas. He laid on the ground virtually motionless before eventually being helped off the field by team staff.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 5

WR Chris Godwin TBB

Yes, several pundits had Chris Godwin as a solid WR2 heading into the season, but how many had him as a WR1... on his own team? Godwin has actually out-produced perennial WR stud Mike Evans, and if anyone tells you they had predicted that being the case in 2019, immediately consider that person a liar...

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 5

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

The Tampa Bay QB is playing great football right now and is still 57% available in most leagues. Chew on this, Jameis Winston has thrown for 765 yards and 7 touchdowns in his last two games. If that is not production you want in your line-up then I don't know what is.

GRAB BAG: Week 5

TE_Tyler_Eifert_CIN_1

Tyler Eifert is healthy and capable of big games and he's more than 80% available. Add him to your team and you'll almost certainly get a boost at one of the toughest positions in fantasy football.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 4 Injury Fallout

WR_Davante_Adams_GBP_2

Although there appears to be some optimism regarding Adams’ injury, it still seems there’s a strong possibility that he could miss a game or two. If that ends up being the case, then Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison would become bigger focal points of the offense, and Jimmy Graham would have an opportunity to build on his strong Week 4 performance.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 3 Injury Fallout

Taylon Smith DAL tackles Saquon Barkley NYG

We’ll have to wait for the MRI results before we know the severity of the sprain, but given the type of injury, you should expect Barkley to miss at least a few games. With Barkley likely sidelined for some period of time, third-year back Wayne Gallman will be the starter.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 3

QB Josh Allen BUF

I had Lamar Jackson starting to make a meaningful impact in 2020, not this season – yet he has had two great games to open the season, and you can just see his confidence grow as a passer. Ditto Josh Allen and to a lesser extent Dak Prescott.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 3

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

Week 3 can't get here quick enough. Week 2 is known for big injuries, so it should not be a surprise that many of us need some waiver wire help this week. On Second Thought is here to provide that help.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 2 Injury Fallout

QB_Drew_Brees_NOS_1

We’ll have to wait for Brees to meet with that hand specialist before we’ll know the extent of the injury, but his inability to return to the game certainly casts doubt on his future availability. If Brees is sidelined for any amount of time, then sixth-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be under center.

WR_Tyreek_Hill_KCC_2

Tyreek Hill suffered the injury when he was tackled by cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and he was taken to the hospital for treatment soon after. Kansas City’s chief athletic trainer stated that Hill injured a sternoclavicular joint (where the collarbone meets the sternum), and ESPN’s Adam Schefter later reported that Hill does not need surgery but will miss a few weeks.
