Fantasy Quick Picks and Injuries

Posted By David Willow On Sep 25 2011 @ 7:53 pm In Fantasy Football | 1 Comment

With the games coming to an end there is another round of injuries to look over.

The biggest news of the day is the injury to Kenny Britt. After planting his foot in an awkward manner, he collapsed onto the field fumbling the ball. Eerily similar to what happened to Jamaal Charles last week, Britt’s outlook is very bad. He was carted off the field and all signs point to a torn ACL.

Advice - Fantasy owners run, and I mean run, to your computer or smartphone, get on the waivers and grab Nate Washington as soon as you can.

Michael Vick suffered a broken hand today and sat out most of the last quarters. The jury will be out as to whether or not he will play next week, since it is not on his throwing hand.

Advice – Another week where grabbing Mike Kafka is the best course of action for Vick owners.

Torrey Smith, a rookie I spoke of during the off-season, blew up in his first game in the NFL. he hauled in 5 catches for 155 yards and 3 TDs. He tweaked his hamstring, but should be ok for next week.

Advice – Grab him if you have the room, but don’t overreach and drop anyone of value. He stretched the field against a depleted Rams secondary.

Frank Gore suffered and ankle injury, but was able to go back into the game. He was not very effective today and though the extent of the injury is not yet known.

Advice – It is not yet know what the extent of the injury is, but Gore owners should grab Kendall Hunter as a safety valve until news about the injury is confirmed.
