The Wacky World of Injuries

Just a quick blurb from the Fluke on MAJOR injuries that will affect fantasy play. Beanie Wells hurt his knee. The good news is that he didn’t go back into the looker room. This just improves my position on starting Tim Hightower week 1 in fantasy play.

Byron Leftwich tore his MCL.  Tough call on who they will start at QB. Obviously Dixon is next in line to start. I have some serious thoughts that Pittsburgh might pull the trigger and run to grab Leinhart as some insurance. I honestly believe Dixon will start and will surprise some people. I can’t recommend picking him up but I  would keep a close eye on him especially if you are starting Mr Whiny aka Jay Cutler.

Michael Bush is out 4 to 6 weeks. Man oh Man Oakland has quickly turned back into a disaster situation. I’m so annoyed by this because I really believe they would have a bounce back year. I still am pulling for Cable because I believe he is a legit NFL coach. This injury moves McFadden into fantasy relevance. Feel confident to start him without hesitation.

Montario Hardesty is injured. Not sure if it is his knee or a shinn injury. Either way he left the locker room on crutches. Good news for Harrison owners is that he is the starter. With some competition behind him in James Davis and Peyton Hillis. Lets not forget James Davis made some noise for a week or so in fantasy last year until he landed on the IR. Harrison is startable week one since they are playing KC a team with pitiful defense.

Hope the injury updates keep ya’all current…
