** Things that jumped out at me from the injury reports so far... **
-- The Patriots have a bunch of players banged up. I think they will try to blowout the Texans fast and pull starters. I don't think you'll see a lot of Gronk or Amendola, or Gilmore in the 2nd half of this game...which may weight on their fantasy output. hard to predict that, but for a tie-breaker on a sit/start...
-- Jason Verrett out for LAC is a killer for them. Good news for Tyreek and Conley, and Alex Smith.
-- Vontae Davis out for Indy. If he played, I would have really liked the Colts at home this week.
-- I don't believe Demarco Murray will play much Sunday, if he's even active.
-- The Bears get Amukamara and Kyle Long back, while the Steelers lose T.J. Watt and RT Marcus Gilbert. I have had a feeling all week the Bears are going to upset the Steelers.
-- Here we go with Jordan Reed. Is there a top TE name not hurt this week? I like Ben Watson A LOT as a deep sleeper TE play. You can't trust Reed here.
-- Sam Bradford out again means this thing is a deeper issue I have a feeling. Thielen can survive any QB, but Stefon Diggs is in trouble.
-- John Ross out for Week 3...Alex Erickson had 6 targets last week and 4 catches. He is the Bengals' Julian Edelman just sitting there waiting to be unleashed if the Bengals would ever get their head out their own rear ends. They did some last week, this might be the week a semi-waiver wire star is born.
