    Week one injury updates 

    • Looks like Rams WR Danny Amendola could be out for at least 8-10 weeks, if not the year, after suffering a dislocated elbow. This hurts for those in PPR leagues who drafted him. This could end up benefiting rookie tight end Lance Kendricks, who should see even more looks, even after dropping a few passes on Sunday.
    • Amendola’s teammates Sam Bradford (finger) and Steven Jackson (quad) also suffered minor injuries and both hope to play in week 2, but keep an eye on them. Don’t worry about starting Bradford’s backup for any reason, but Cadillac Williams will top the waiver wire pick-ups this week for sure!
    • Chargers running back Mike Tolbert continued to prove that he’s the more valuable tailback, at least in terms of fantasy football, on the team as he scored three touchdowns. However, he also hurt his knee and while it seems minor at the moment, it could be the type of injury to sideline him a week, so make sure to follow the situation if he’s on your team.
    • Houston running back Derrick Ward left the game with an ankle injury and backup Ben Tate had a big game. With Arian Foster’s status still unknown for week two and Ward already losing his role as primary backup, Tate could be in line for another big game.
    • 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree will most likely be day-to-day for a while with a¬†reoccurring¬†foot injury.
    • Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman left Sunday’s game temporarily, but it seems it was just cramps and he came back in the game. Nothing to see here.
    • Jags tight end Marcedes Lewis had either cramps or a calf strain and you’ll want to monitor his status throughout the week before plugging him into your line-up (or don’t plug him in…easier solution!)
    • Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton hurt his wrist and his status for week two is up in the air…but that shouldn’t matter, as no one should have him in their fantasy line-ups unless you’re in some crazy three QB league!
    • In case you’re someone who pays very little attention to the kicker position, other than to sub your guy out on a bye week, you might check that you don’t have Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding in your line-up. It seems he might be out for the year with a knee injury.

      My team has Cassel at qb, peyton manning on the bench. Think I should drop both/either for fitzpatrick and cam newton?

        Feel free to drop Manning at this point. He won’t help you this year. As far as who to pick up, I’d probably go the safer route with Fitzpatrick. He was decent last year as well and seems to be continuing that trend. Newton might be fun in the games he does well, but I predict a few terrible games in his near future. Maybe grab them all though if possible, since you’re pretty weak at the position.

    Late round flyers 

    Just mentioned it in a tweet, but here are a couple names to consider towards the end of the draft when it seems everyone is doing their own thing and there isn’t as much competition for players:

    QB Sam Bradford – not getting as much love as I would expect at this point, could end up with numbers similar to guys going five rounds or so ahead of him
    RB Thomas Jones – solid backup numbers, doesn’t get hurt very often and is one injury from starting
    WR Nate Burleson – if Stafford improves, Burleson will be benefactor
    TE Aaron Hernandez – almost feel confident using him as his your starting TE, but you can snag him late as a great backup
    WR Jacoby Ford – should be top receiving option on Raiders, but kickoff rule change hurts his value in return yard leagues
    WR Steve Smith (both of them) – just seem to be available deep in the draft where their upside is worth the low risk
    DEF Detroit – maybe I’m giving them too much credit based on their dominance of the Patriots in preseason game, but they should get plenty of sacks and pressure on QB, which could mean interceptions and fumbles too

      Brandon Gibson was on the list previously, but he’s been hurt recently and I’m not sure what is going on with the Rams receiving corps at this point!
