DZ – Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire
Quite the weekend in the NFL. Big Ben, Luck, Bridgewater, and plenty more were injured this weekend. Is your FF team and personal pride on the verge of going down the toilet? Just relax….JUST THE TIP has got some info to help your struggles.
With a few QBs on the injury report, Landry, can be a solid fill in. He is facing a struggling Browns team that has been piecing together their secondary lately. Joe Haden has missed a lot of time this season with injuries and a concussion. Even if he is able to play this week he will surely be rusty. Pair that with the Steelers playing at home, Landry getting some more playing time against the Raiders , and the Brown/Bryant combo that is becoming more scary every week….give him a shot.
Looks like the Titans are turning over the keys to the RB position to Andrews. Andrews had 20 touches this week totaling over 100 yards. The Titans have a tough match up with Carolina this week but look for Andrews to lead the position in touches again. With Mariota continuing to improve at QB and Green-Beckham stretching the field at WR, Andrews should be able to have some success again.
Philip Rivers can’t seem to catch a break! He has been without Gates, Allen, and now Floyd is out with a shoulder injury. This could be a good chance to get a soon to be, heavily targeted WR. The Chargers are on a bye this week so Johnson could be a easy FA pick up. The bye week also gives Rivers added time to get more familiar with Johnson as a lead WR.
Injuries happen and adjustments need to be made. Use JUST THE TIP to help put your team in position to make the quick and necessary changes to keep your team playoff bound.
