RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire KCC

Should Charles Edward-Helaire managers hit the panic button with a still very capable Le’Veon Bell in the backfield mix? Senior FantasySharks.com writer Matt Wilson answers that question and takes a look at three other changing backfields in his newest edition ...

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 7 Injury Fallout

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 6 Injury Fallout

RB Raheem Mostert SF

We’ll have to wait for the team to update us on the injury, but for now, it appears that Mostert’s Week 7 status may be in question. If he is unable to play in that game against the Patriots, then Jerick McKinnon could become the team’s main back again, much like he was when Mostert was sidelined with a knee sprain.

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_3

This is a tough blow for the Cowboys and for Prescott, and the team will have to move forward with Andy Dalton under center. There’s no doubt that Dalton will be a significant downgrade from Prescott, but his nine years of starting experience make him a stable option for the team.

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 4

red-light-green-light

Only three other NFL teams besides Tampa Bay have allowed more receiving yards to opposing backfields, so look for Ekeler to continue serving as a regular chain mover for the Bolts as they try to keep up as heavy underdogs.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

RB Rex Burkhead NE

What’s the best way to sum up the Week 3 action? Try this: Fewer injuries, but more questions. Is there clarity in the New England Patriots backfield? Is the New York Giants backfield a lost cause? Are there two on-the-rise ...

GRAB BAG: Week 3

QB Justin Herbert LA Chargers

Tyrod Taylor was declared inactive minutes before the matchup with the Chiefs. The rookie Herbert, with little time to prepare, stepped up and led the Chargers to an almost-upset against the defending Super Bowl champions completing 22 or 33 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown - an excellent start for a first-timer.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

RB James Conner PIT

It’s Conner’s backfield, but I’m a bit skeptical about whether Conner will hold onto the No. 1 gig. During the Denver game, Conner’s final stats received a nice boost from a 59-yard jaunt during the closing minutes in which the Broncos were stacking the line and trying to force a turnover.

RB Saquon Barkley NYG & CB Chidobe Awuzie DAL

Barkley left Sunday’s game against the Bears with a right knee injury in the second quarter. He appeared to suffer the injury when he bounced a run to the outside, and he had to be carted off the field. After the game, ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reported that the injury is believed to be a torn ACL.

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 2

red-light-green-light

Derrick Henry generated 131 yards of total offense last Monday night, though it took him a whopping 34 touches to get there. Expect an easier time for Henry against a Jacksonville defense that he trampled for a combined 441 rushing yards and seven touchdowns over the last three times he’s faced them.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 1 Injury Fallout

RB Nyheim Hines IND

If the reports of a torn Achilles are true, then Marlon Mack is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the season. That would be a tough blow to the Colts running game, but it would open up more work for rookie Jonathan Taylor and third-year pass-catching specialist Nyheim Hines.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 15 Injury Fallout

RB Dalvin Cook MIN and LB Adarius Taylor TB

At this point, it’s unclear if Cook’s injury is severe enough to sideline him in Week 16, so you should keep your eyes open for an update from the Vikings. If Cook is unable to play, then rookie Alexander Mattison would normally be the starter, but Mattison’s availability is also up in the air due to an ankle injury that kept him out on Sunday.

RB Kalen Ballage MIA

Ballage left Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a left leg injury in the second quarter. It appeared to be a non-contact injury, and he had to be taken to the locker room on a cart. He was officially listed as questionable to return, but he did not re-enter the game.

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.
