Week 2 Fantasy Football News & Notes

  • WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR REPLACING JENNINGS IN TONIGHTS MATCHUP?
    • UPDATE: GREG JENNINGS IS RULED OUT OF TOMORROW NIGHT GAME AGAINST THE BEARS
      • With the Packers playing Thursday Night against the Bears and Greg Jennings listed as doubtful with a groin injury, you should find a replacement for week 2.
        • Randall Cobb will continue to see an increased workload 
  • Devery Henderson of the Saints has been diagnosed with a concussion after taking a hit against the Redskins.
    • There is still a possibility that he can play Sunday against the Panthers so keep an eye on his situation if you own and start him in deeper leagues.
  • Calvin Johnson was held out of practice on Wednesday but it appears Megatron was just given the day off to rest.
    • There has been no indication that Johnson is injured but coach Jim Schwartz would not disclose on his status.
  • WHAT IS YOUR BACKUP PLAN FOR JEREMY MACLIN?
    • Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin did not practice today with a hip injury. 
      • This is not a good sign but Coach Andy Reid has not ruled Maclin out for Sunday's match up with the Ravens.
  • Fred Jackson's timetable for his knee injury is now 3-8 weeks.
    • This is a huge time frame but Jackson has recieved inconclusive results from his MRI.  Jackson hopes to return week 4 against the Patriots but that's highly unlikely at this point.
  •  Colts reciever Austin Collie has been given clearance to give 100% on Sunday.
    • Collie was supposed to play in week 1 but was inactive.  Looks like he'll be out there against the Vikings.
  •  Jonathan Stewart returned to practice today.  As of now he should be considered a game time decision on Sunday.
    • If he can get through practice on Thursday and Friday then he'll most likely play, but after last week it's hard to trust any RB in Carolina.
  • LeGarrette Blount will be going for an MRI on both his neck and back after suffering an injury in the second quarter on Sunday.
    • Doesn't look like Blount will suit up on Sunday against the Giants.  D.J Ware might get some playing time against the team that cut him right before the season started.
