Injuries, Suspensions and Fantasy


Injuries have already started to hit teams in camp, but what does it all mean? Here is the rundown so far and what we think it means:
  • Brandon Stokley - Dislocated Shoulder (3-4 Weeks), we don't see this as a huge impact. He may miss the opener, but should not really affect his fantasy value this season.
  • Todd Pinkston - Ruptured Achilles (season), Pinkston is gone for the season and while he would have been drafted, this injury affects the players around him, namely McNabb, Owens and positively Greg Lewis, who takes over for him.
  • Jerry Porter - Pulled Hamstring (?), these are the types of injuries that linger - We'll keep an eye on this throughout camp - this does make us take a stronger look at Ronald Curry in that all too famous who plays opposite of Randy Moss game.
  • Anquan Boldon - Broken Nose (3 Weeks), missing 3 weeks will affect him since he has a new QB to adjust to. It may also hurt in his conditioning, we will see when he gets back on the practice field.
  • Terrell Owens - Strained Groin (?), another type of lingering injury - caused by what? Contract issues? Very reminicent of his last year in SF. Too soon to tell if there is a fantasy impact.
  • Plaxico Burress - Strained Hip Flexor (?), is it me or does it seem like the injury bug has hit him? Plaxico and Manning - waiting to see what it all means - injuries will stall this evaluation.
  • Deuce Staley - Knee (?), he is in that 30 and broken down range so it would be iffy at best to have him as he will likely split carries with Bettis anyway.
  • Chad Pennington - Shoulder(?), He has been hot and cold ever since camp opened regarding his repaired shoulder - we will keep an eye on this.
Holdouts:
  • Hines Ward - nothing happening here - will greatly impact Steelers and especially Roethlisberger.
  • Brian Westbrook - Nothing new on this front - he may sign the deal that was in front of him, or try for a little more - impacts Eagles greatly.
Suspension:
  • Ricky Williams, even if determined to be a fantasy factor, faces a 4 game suspension at the start of the season.

I'm not a fan of the outrageous amounts of money football players make. But, there's no one who deserves a nice fat paycheck more than Hines Ward.

And I have no sympathy for Plaxico Burress.
