As the NFL prepares for wild card weekend a quick look at injuries for each team that might impact the outcome of the games is warranted. Most of the teams involved in this weekends games come into the playoffs in decent shape as far as injuries are concerned. Considering 17 weeks of the season have been played and several players are on IR, their status is already known. This article will look at players still on the active rosters of each team.
Welcome to the first edition of The Scorecrow’s Best Bets. Each week, we will look at the current line for every game and which ones seem like guaranteed winners. Our blog will include stats, history, and sometimes straight up gut feelings. Let’s start with some TNF.
Week 10. It is only four weeks away from the fantasy playoffs and it is more important than ever to figure out the matchups we should be targeting to help us bring home that W. Do not be the person who benches the player about to go off because he had a bad game recently. Based on this week’s matchups, I recommend that you start or sit the following players.
What is Haglund’s Deformity? How will Will Dissly play when he returns next season? Will Earl Thomas play another game for the Seahawks after his injury and telling his sideline that they are number 1 on Sunday?
Week 3 brought us the emergence of Baker Mayfield in Cleveland. He led the Browns to a comeback victory over the New York Jets and Sam Darnold. Baker won the first battle of many between the top two quarterbacks of the 2018 draft and looked damn good in relief of Tyrod Taylor. The fantasy quarterback battle of the century between Big Ben and Ryan Fitzpatrick did not disappoint at all and the Rams look like the team to beat this year and are a complete fantasy juggernaut. Oh yeah, and the Bills beat the Vikings in Minnesota.
On Sunday it was reported that Doug Baldwin had suffered a partial MCL tear. Grade 2. While it is a significant injury, the recovery with good rehab is much faster than when an athlete tears the ACL or PCL.
