Peterson has a sprained ankle
Off of a game that reminded you he is an all time great running back (120 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns) Peterson is hobbled with and ankle sprain. The good news Washington has a bye the bad news AP is old and seemingly comes out of every game with an ailment.
Rosen Named Starter
With the Arizona Cardinals making it official today Josh Rosen joins Sam Darnold, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield as 2018 Rookie QBs that are now at the helm of thier teams. While Rosen didn’t bring the spark to his club that Mayfield did on Thursday night you can only imagine he will make the Cardinal skill position players more relevant in weeks to come. Honestly could it be worse than what we sat through the first three weeks?
Mayfield to start
Baker Mayfield will get the start next week against Oakland as Hue Jackson finally got a taste of winning and realized maybe that can be a good thing. This is an Oakland defense that just allowed over 300 total yards and 3 touchdowns to Ryan friggin’ Tannehill. That may or may not be his middle name, we are working to confirm. That said, Mayfield is an upgrade and the offense should only get better.
Garoppolo likely out for season
Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a non-contact knee injury in Sunday’s game that both head coach Mike Shanahan and GM John Lynch suspect to be a torn ACL which would end his season. This is a massive blow to the 49ers and all of their skill position players. It should be noted that Kittle and Garcon before his injury saw a ton of targets with Beathard in at quarterback last year.
Gordon out for SNF
Josh Gordon just joined the Patriots, but to the dismay of many in the fantasy industry… he’ll watch this first one from the bench, Get him out if you had the balls to put him in your lineup in the first place.
Clement Will Be Front And Center
With Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles both ruled out Corey Clement is expected to start today and be the go to guy. When he’s received double digit touches he’s produced solid fantasy numbers. He was my sleeper RB in this weeks“Sleepers and Landmines” and he should be locked in your lineups.
It’s Gabbert Again For Titans
With Mariota still having numbness in his fingers Gabbert will be under center again for the Titans. With only 20 pass attempts a week ago and a tough match up against a stout Jags defense all Titans weapons are downgraded.
Oh Oh Oh Fitzmagic
The most fun story to start the NFL season rolls on. Ryan Fitzpatrick who was listed earlier in the week on the injury report with a knee issue practiced in full on Saturday and has been removed from the report. A Monday night clash of an underperforming Steelers team and and overperforning Bucs team should bring a lot of fireworks.
McCoy travels to Minnesota
LeSean McCoy traveled to Minnesota. He has been questionable all week to play in the game Sunday. Reading the tea leaves here… this means nothing for your fantasy league because you shouldn’t be starting him anyway.
Jay Ajayi out week 3
Despite coming back into the game in week 2 and scoring a touchdown after his injury… Ajayi will be sitting out week 3. With Darren Sproles also likely on the shelf, this is a Corey Clement game. The Eagles are just a game removed from allowing 149 yards and a score to Joe Mixon and are ranked 22nd against fantasy running backs.
