FANTASY SHARKS RADIO: Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy — Week 3 Preview

“And lo, the carnage did spread far and wide across the land. And the runners did fall in droves. And the owners did weepeth.” — The Book of Week 2.

The fantasy football landscape for 2016 was altered in a big way in Week 2, as the running back position was absolutely decimated by injuries. Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings (knee) and Ameer Abdullah of the Detroit Lions (foot) suffered major injuries that effectively ended their 2016 campaign from a fantasy perspective. Danny Woodhead‘s season is definitely over, compliments of a torn ACL.

That’s far from the extent of the damage, however. Tampa Bay’s Doug Martin, Miami’s Arian Foster and Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart are dinged up as well, suffering soft-tissue injuries that could sideline them for weeks.

But wait, there’s more!

Injuries at quarterback in Chicago, Cleveland and New England could have serious ramifications for all the offensive talent on those teams, from Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery to Patriots receiver Julian Edelman — who might be playing quarterback Thursday night against the Houston Texans.

This is the point where it feels important to mention that it’s Week 3.

The show must go on, however, and Fantasy Sharks Staff Writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin have gathered again to help fantasy owners sift through the wrecage and prepare for another week of fantasy mayhem.

Join them on Thursday, September 22 at 7 PM Easterm as the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy previews Week 3.

Even if they’re afraid to predict what will happen next.

Come on in — the water’s FINE.
