Training Room: Fantasy Football Injury Updates – Week 12

This entry is part 12 of 13 in the series Fantasy Football: Training Room

Gobble Gobble to all! I want to wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I will be in a car driving to the happiest place on earth. So have some turkey for me! With that, let’s get to the injuries.

Alex Smith, QB, WAS – Man, do look up that video like I did. Alex is out for the season and Colt McCoy is in under center. In deeper leagues, Colt isn’t a bad option.

Marcus Mariota, QB, TEN – The elbow again?!?! Why can’t we get Corey Davis some consistent QB love here? Bench Mariota until he is clear and healthy, but if in a win now situation drop him now.

Ryan Tannehill, QB, MIA – It’s looking like his is back this week. Stash if needed, but do not play until we see it first.

Joe Flacco, QB, BAL – Flacco might be done in Baltimore, especially if Lamar Jackson continues to play well. Drop Joe, it’s over until next year.

Kerryon Johnson, RB, DET – Ugh, this one sucks. He is out already with a knee and its Blount and Riddick’s show. I’d lean on Riddick if in a pinch, but Blount could fall in the end zone.

D’Onta Foreman, RB, HOU – Will he return this season? We could know very soon. Stash him in dynasty for sure.

A.J. Green, WR, CIN – Green is dealing with a toe and could play this week. This is a better matchup this week, if he goes play him…we need you A.J.!

Rob Gronkowski, TE, NE – He is expected to be back this week. Fingers crossed!

Jimmy Graham, TE, GB – Mad props to Jimmy if he does indeed play, but I am dropping him in redraft leagues. Hopefully, you have Cameron Brate, Jack Doyle, or Heuerman.

O.J. Howard, TE, TB – As of Wednesday, it was announced that he is done for the season. Cameron Brate time! Brate is a low-end TE1 moving forward.

Don’t bother with the following players anymore in redraft leagues if you need to win now:

Darren Sproles, RB, PHI

Ronald Jones, RB, TB

Chris Thompson, RB, WAS

Marvin Jones, WR, DET

Randall Cobb, WR, GB

Pierre Garcon, WR, SF

Jamison Crowder, WR, WAS

Thanks for stopping by, please share this with your friends or your mom.

Until next time,
