With a heavy early-game slate, only four games come after 1:00PM EST, in Week 7 fantasy owners should not struggle as much with injury decisions but a few big names missed significant practice time this week.
Injury-prone Ahmad Bradshaw is ACTIVE for today’s divisional game vs. the Redskins but Andre Brown and birth control-like David Wilson should take up to a dozen carries away from Bradshaw. Another RB, Cleveland rookie Trent Richardson battled a chest injury all week but is ACTIVE today and it appears to be a matter of pain tolerance in regards to how many touches he will receive.
As expected for the pass catchers, Jimmy Graham and Greg Jennings are INACTIVE while Dez Bryant is ACTIVE along with Jennings’ teammate Jermichael Finley. However, a poor TE matchup in St. Louis and his failure to break into the Top 20 fantasy tight ends might have owners sitting him in favor of a waiver wire pick-up this week.
A trio of New England Patriots headline the late-game injury reports as Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Wes Welker are still listed as questionable. All three are expected to play, especially Welker, but should be monitored until gametime.
