OUCH: Week 14 Injuries


Well, for those of you still around welcome to the playoffs and we hope you’re doing well. But what would the playoffs be without INJURIES! Again in Week 14 the old injury bug came biting stars like DeMarco Murray and Greg Jennings while others like Jimmy Graham are still dealing with lingering issues from previous weeks. Now us fantasy owners are wondering what to do as the stars that got us here may not be who will help us win it all.

DeMarco Murray: Murray is…wait for it…DONE! It’s very unfortunate but after cruising during the 1st quarter of Sunday night’s game, Murray broke his ankle and will be out for the rest of the 2011 season. Murray had been sputtering lately and the Giants suspect run defense was hopefully the game for Murray to get back on track but hopefully Murray owners are still Felix Jones owners. Jones picked up the load for Murray carrying the ball 16 times for 106 yards while catching an additional 6 passes for 31 yards. With an inviting run schedule against a terrible Tampa Bay defense along with a stop against Philadelphia, Jones can be relied on once again to produce solid numbers.

Greg Jennings: For you Greg Jennings owners (myself included) Jennings likely won’t be suiting up for you again this year as he went down with an apparent knee injury. Green Bay initially has called it a sprain but whether it’s a sprain or a tear, Aaron Rodgers will be without one of his top targets for some time. For those in this predicament, definitely look at the other Green Bay receivers as options. Donald Driver seemed to get some looks his way, more so than James Jones or Randall Cobb. The problem with Green Bay is, Rodgers throws to whoever he deems open. As of next Sunday know they all could produce decent numbers, look for all 3 to split reps with Driver leading in receptions, followed by Jones and Cobb.
