Danny Amendola dislocated collarbone
Bad news for those that used a late round draft pick on Danny Amendola. Unfortunately the same injury that he suffered last season cropped up again on Thursday night. Amendola will be out six weeks with a broken collarbone. In the meantime, Brandon Gibson should see more targets his way.
Lance Moore hamstring strain
Scratch off Lance Moore from the must-start list this week. It seems like his lingering hamstring problems, which forced him out of every practice this week, will make him miss action Sunday. Just as he was emerging as the Saints number one receiver, Moore gets hit with a injury bug.
Ben Tate game-time decision
All week long Tate has been out with an injured toe. If he’s healthy, it’s a perfect match-up. With the New York Jets in virtual free fall mode, all signs point to the Texans having the game in hand which would give Tate some great mop up time. As it is now owners will have to look in another direction. Can’t take the risk of him not playing on Monday night.
Greg Jennings out…again
Greg Jennings’ injured groin looks like it will keep him out again this week. Pushing James Jones and possibly even former Kentucky Wildcat Randall Cobb into an expanded role. If I was a fantasy owner of Greg Jennings, after his next healthy performance, I would trade him immediately.
Kenny Britt can’t stay healthy
Kenny Britt who always seem to have trouble staying on the field, be it from injuries or suspension once again looks to miss out on action this week. If Britt wasn’t such a enticing play I would wonder why he is even on any fantasy roster. That being said any guy who can on any given week put up 200 receiving yards should probably occupy a fantasy spot.
James Starks on his way back
James Starks is slowly making progress on his comeback. Still, as of now Cedric Benson’s status as the number one back should remain in tact. But, if you want to get real technical, no running back in that system should be more than a flex option.
Darrius Heyward-Bey on his way back
After the nasty hit that took him out in week 3 against the Steelers, Heyward-Bey looks to be on the mend and surprisingly could be back in action next week following their bye. This could make Heyward-Bey an intriguing free agent to add to your fantasy lineup. He still has the talent and big play ability to emerge as the Raiders number one wide receiver.
