Week 12 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings Feature Justin Fields and Kyler Murray’s Rise.

The injury bug has bitten hard in the quarterback department, and Week 12 sees a growing list of signal-callers ruled out for the season. Among the casualties are star players such as Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Joe Burrow, Anthony Richardson, Daniel Jones, and Kirk Cousins. The upcoming week also hangs in uncertainty for Derek Carr (concussion) and Geno Smith (elbow/triceps), adding to the potential quarterback shortage. In the midst of this, Week 12 introduces more quarterback changes. Zach Wilson finds himself benched in favor of Tim Boyle for the Jets, a move that, unfortunately, brings little impact to their offensive ...

West Ham expresses anger over Michail Antonio's knee injury sustained while on duty with Jamaica.

West Ham expresses anger over Michail Antonio’s knee injury sustained while on duty with Jamaica.

West Ham is seething with frustration amid concerns that Michail Antonio may have sustained a long-term injury while on international duty with Jamaica. Antonio is en route to England for a scan, heightening worries that the forward might be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to damage to his medial knee ligament. The 33-year-old exited late in the first half of Jamaica’s Concacaf Nations League quarter-final against Canada on Saturday night, visibly limping down the tunnel. West Ham’s ire stems from the fact that Antonio continued to play for more than 10 minutes after the injury occurred. Additionally, ...

Logan Thomas and Pat Freiermuth Among Top Tight End Choices in Fantasy Football Week 12 Rankings

Logan Thomas and Pat Freiermuth Among Top Tight End Choices in Fantasy Football Week 12 Rankings

In Week 12, fantasy football managers face the challenge of finding replacement tight ends, particularly after Mark Andrews’ season-ending ankle injury. With no bye weeks to navigate, the urgency to fill the void left by Andrews is palpable across leagues. Replacing a player of Andrews’ caliber is no easy feat, especially this late in the season. While earlier options like Dalton Kincaid and Trey McBride may have shown promise, the current landscape post-Week 11 presents fewer appealing choices. If you’re in the unfortunate position of losing Andrews, a first step is checking if Kyle Pitts, now at an 82% roster, ...

Fantasy Football Recap Week 11 Victors Include Trevor Lawrence and Jaylen Warren, While Derrick Henry Faces Setback

Fantasy Football Recap Week 11 Victors Include Trevor Lawrence and Jaylen Warren, While Derrick Henry Faces Setback

The importance of having valuable handcuffs in the late season became evident for me this Sunday. While it’s reasonable to pursue high-upside players in the early season for your bench spots, as emerging talents like Marvin Mims and Jahan Dotson could develop into must-start Fantasy options, the landscape shifts as teams solidify their rotations. Now, with only two weeks of byes left and Week 12 looming, I find myself prioritizing handcuffs. In my early look at Week 12 Wire, I identified Zach Charbonnet as a prime waiver wire target. The focus on injury reports, especially running back injuries, has become ...

Bearish setbacks Lucas Patrick and D’Onta Foreman sustain injuries against the Lions.

The Chicago Bears faced setbacks on the offensive front as key players, center Lucas Patrick and running back D’Onta Foreman, both sustained injuries. Patrick endured a substantial hit in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, despite the play being blown dead, and was escorted to the sidelines by trainers. As the second half commenced, he was deemed doubtful to return due to a back injury. Dan Feeney took over in his absence, with Cody Whitehair benched as the team’s center for the remainder of the contest. In the Bears’ first drive of the third quarter, Foreman suffered an injury.

Notable Running Backs Exiting Include Aaron Jones, De’Von Achane, and Kenneth Walker

The 2023 Fantasy Football season has been marred by injuries, and Week 11 witnessed a significant blow to the running back position. Aaron Jones, facing a potentially serious knee injury, stole the spotlight in what could be the most impactful injury from Sunday’s matchups. However, Jones was not alone in his misfortune. De’Von Achane’s return to the Dolphins was thwarted as he apparently aggravated his knee injury, and D’Onta Foreman of the Bears exited early with an ankle injury. In the 4 pm window, Seahawks’ running back Kenneth Walker also suffered an oblique injury, forcing him out of the game. ...

Fantasy Football Week 12 Early Waiver Wire: Injuries Open Doors, but Cooper Kupp Might Not Be the Answer

Fantasy Football Week 12 Early Waiver Wire Injuries Open Doors, but Cooper Kupp Might Not Be the Answer

In Week 11, several starters faced injuries during their games, but the fantasy landscape didn’t offer many opportunities for players to capitalize on these absences through the waiver wire. However, one exception stands out—Zach Charbonnet. He could become a crucial fantasy asset, especially if Kenneth Walker’s oblique injury sidelines him in the upcoming games. Charbonnet’s prospects are further boosted by the Seahawks facing a quick turnaround for their Week 12 game on Thursday against the 49ers. Even if Walker’s injury turns out to be less severe, it might position Charbonnet as the primary starting back for the next week. Despite ...

Week 8 Wide Receiver Rankings for Fantasy Football

Week 8 Wide Receiver Rankings for Fantasy Football

Recall the discussions in the fantasy community about Puka Nacua’s future viability once Cooper Kupp made his return to the field. The concern was that Kupp would dominate the Rams’ target share, potentially leaving little room for the rookie. However, Nacua’s recent performance in Week 7 was nothing short of impressive. He hauled in eight receptions for 154 yards, marking his second 150+ yard game and his fourth 100-yard game of the season. Now, the question is whether Nacua can maintain this momentum as he faces a challenging matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Certainly, here are the provided data organized ...

Fantasy Football Week 8: C.J. Stroud Ascends to QB1 Status and Key Lineup Decisions

The San Francisco 49ers are facing a slew of injuries as they approach Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Key players are expected to be sidelined for this matchup. Quarterback Brock Purdy is in the concussion protocol and is likely to miss the game. Receiver Deebo Samuel, who was already expected to be absent due to a shoulder injury, and left tackle Trent Williams, who missed practice following Week 7, add to the injury concerns. Although there’s a chance Williams could play if he practices on Thursday, he’ll be protecting Sam Darnold. With Darnold starting, fantasy football managers are left ...

England’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 journey began with high hopes as defending champions, but they’ve stumbled with three losses in their first four matches, putting their tournament hopes in jeopardy.
