Stevie Johnson injures hamstring

Sunday, October 4, 2015, 8:12pm - [Full Article]

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson pulled up lame, tried to get it loose but was unable to return to the game. There wasn't much information as far as the seriousness, but we'll continue to monitor. Malcom Floyd was also injured in the game (concussion) so the Chargers could be short at the position heading into Week 5.

Malcom Floyd concussed vs. Browns

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Concussed by a Browns defender, Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd departed the first half of Sunday's game at Qualcomm Stadium.

Floyd took a hit from linebacker Nate Orchard after another Browns defender had wrapped up Floyd on a 20-yard reception.

Floyd went to the sideline, where the Chargers' training staff looked at him. He returned to the game, but then departed. The team announced he will not return due to a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

Perhaps it's good news that Floyd returned to the game before eventually leaving again. He'll have to go through the league's protocol. It would normally mean good news for Stevie Johnson owners, but Johnson suffered a hamstring injury in the game. Jacoby Jones and Dontrelle Inman are next up on the depth chart should Floyd and/or Johnson miss time.

Nate Washington injures hamstring

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans veteran starting wide receiver Nate Washington was ruled out of the game with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Washington didn’t catch a pass. The Texans offense did not look good when it counted against the Falcons and the team again switched QBs going with Brian Hoyer after things got out of hand. Cecil Shorts dislocated his shoulder in the loss. Keith Mumphery is next up on the depth chart but the team may have to look outside the organization for help.

Fantasy Impact:

It was expected Drew Brees would play Sunday night in Week 4. He's a risk, though, given his injury (bruised rotator cuff) but said leading up to the game he can make all the throws needed.

Marshawn Lynch ruled OUT for MNF

Sunday, October 4, 2015, 7:11pm

Yahoo - [Full Article]

The Seattle Seahawks have downgraded running back Marshawn Lynch and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane to out for Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions.

Seattle announced the changes in status following the team's walkthrough practice on Sunday. Lynch and Mebane had both been listed as questionable after Saturday's final practice.

Lynch injured his hamstring late in the first half of Seattle's 26-0 win over Chicago last Sunday. Lynch was hurt catching a fourth-down pass just before halftime.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Lynch had an MRI on the injury earlier this week and the scan showed some ''findings'' but did not elaborate. It will be just the second game Lynch has missed since joining the Seahawks in 2010 and the first since the 2011 season.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie Thomas Rawls, who rushed for 104 yards last week in Lynch's absence, will likely get the start against the Lions. We might be able to expect more Fred Jackson in this contest as well.

Packers Inactives
Davante Adams WR
Bryan Bulaga T
Morgan Burnett SS
Demetri Goodson CB
Brett Hundley QB
Jake Ryan LB
Lane Taylor G

Fantasy Impact:

Not much of a surprise as Davante Adams was downgraded to doubtful this past week. James Jones should benefit and Ty Montgomery is an option especially in deeper leagues.

Rams Inactives
Matt Barkely QB
Andre Ellington RB
D.J. Humphries OT
Ted Larson G
Xavier Williams NT
J.J. Nelson WR
Shaquille Riddick LB

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Ellington a bit of a surprise inactive. Good news for Chris Johnson owners as CJ2K should get a bulk of the workload with David Johnson chipping in as well.
