Fantasy Football Week 7: Before You Start


Heading into this Sunday’s bye-week from hell on top of all the stud fantasy football players we wouldn’t be able to start this week like Matt Ryan or Peyton Manning a couple of big name players popped up on the injury reports and their statuses for today’s games were questionable but it turns out those fears weren’t warranted as both Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw and Cowboys WR Dez Bryant have both been deemed active and will be starting today. They’re both safe to start in your fake football line-ups too.

Now that we got those fantasy football injury headlines out of the way let’s get on to the rest of today’s relevant news that will help you dominate your fantasy league:

-Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is out.

-Saints TE Jimmy Graham is out.

-Packers WR Greg Jennings is out.

-Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb is out. John Skelton will be the person deemed healthy enough to throw footballs to Larry Fitzgerald today for the Cardinals.

-Colts RB Donald Brown is out.

-Patriots RB Brandon Bolden is out.

-Titans QB Jake Locker is out.

-Steelers RBs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman are both out. Look to Jonathan Dwyer to start but he will likely split carries with Baron Batch and Chris Rainey.

-Browns RB Trent Richardson is active.

-Bucs WR Vincent Jackson is active and starting.

-Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi is out, which gives Josh Gordon another start.

-Vikings WR Jerome Simpson is active.

-Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is out. Felix Jones should get bulk of work but watch out for Philip Tanner.
