Depending upon your fantasy league setup, this is likely the last week of the regular season for you. If not, then you have a two-week push left to get into the postseason. Here are some updates on injured players, their status for the Week 13 games or the outlook for their replacements.
New England looks for revenge from New York’s Super Bowl XLII victory.
It’s almost here. The New England Patriots and New York Giants will meet in another Super Bowl on Sunday, and the two stalwart franchises seem very evenly-matched. Both squads have old-school coaches in Bill Belichick and Tom Coughlin, and each will have his team well-prepared for a game that will probably be decided by a couple of key plays.
Rex Ryan continues to prove he is unable to back up his trash-talking
Ryan is one of my best friends. He has been an avid sports fan his entire life. Originally from New York, he sticks to his hometown roots when it comes to his favorite teams. In return, I hate them all (with good reason).
New York Giants running back D.J. Ware has the potential to see plenty of work behind Brandon Jacobs when the team plays host to the Philadelphia Eagles.
How bad is your running back situation this week?
Are you still waiting on Darren McFadden to come back? Is Ryan Mathews killing the Mike Tolbert vibe you thought would be happening on a consistent basis by now? Did you really think the Carolina backfield situation would ever clear up? Do you just know you will pick the wrong Washington Redskins RB this week? LeGarrette Blount and Cedric Benson taking the role of bell cow and playing more like cow … Well, you get the picture.
Very bad news for the New York football Giants' running game and fantasy owners
Update: When first reported, it looked like Bradshaw could be out for a significant stretch. Now reports are surfacing that his foot injury is not that serious and that he may actually play this Sunday. Stay tuned.
Ahmad Bradshaw was having a pretty good fantasy season so far. While his week-to-week numbers haven't been that stellar, he has managed to find the end zone 6 times and has offset a lack of yardage with a few catches each week, making him an RB1 in PPR leagues.
The Giants running back is sidelined with a knee injury
Brandon Jacobs is inactive for the New York Giants in Week 5. The Giants running back is sidelined with a knee injury and won't be able to suit up against the Seahawks.
Jacobs injured his MCL last week. The extent of his injury is unknown, but there should be more information available early next week to see if he only needs one week off, or if he'll be shelved for longer.
