Sometimes fantasy players wish they could just wake up from the nightmare that has become their team, and be in a reality where their roster didn’t look like an emergency room waiting list.
The good news about week 6 is that only the Saints and Chiefs have a bye; the bad news is that there is a whole new round of injuries that fantasy owners have to navigate. With so many players being injured, fantasy owners are picking the waiver wire clean trying to find replacements who will at least keep them competitive.
Another week of fantasy football has come and gone, and another round of injuries for fantasy owners to worry about is here. This week will be a busy one for the waiver wire, so it is important for us to go over injuries and the replacement players you should be targeting off the waiver wire.
We’re now a quarter of the way through the NFL season and we are starting to get an idea of who the studs and duds are, who the sleepers were, and who never woke up from their off-season nap.
Before this week’s games were played I don’t think you could have found one person on the face of the Earth that would have said that Eli Manning would finish as this week’s #1 fantasy QB, and Kirk Cousins would completely implode and throw 4 INTs and just 1 TD. And not that it matters for anyone outside of 2QB leagues, but the Bills finally benched E.J. Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton on Monday.
It’s been said that fantasy football doesn’t really start until the bye weeks kick in. While that may be true for some, being 0-3 heading into week 4 pretty much means you’re behind the curve and need help!
Week 1 was devastating for all those who put their high hopes on Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, and Dez Bryant as the Cowboys came out firing on no cylinders. However, a season cannot and should not be judged by one game alone.
