Fantasy Impact: 

Marrone told reporters that Westbrook will be ready to come back from injured reserve this week, and with Allen Hurns out, the team will need others to step up. The story said Cole and Westbrook - when activated off injured reserve - should see major roles with Allen Hurns potentially out of the lineup. However, keep in mind it's tough to trust a receiver in fantasy lineups who is just coming back after missing time. It may take a week to two to get back up to speed but Westbrook could certainly be worth a flier.
