Just to communicate on things happening due to injury, etc., but not wanting to wait until I do the full game analysis, I'm going to try a new feature -- opening up a page Mon.-Wed/Thu on things happening as it effects waivers, etc. I'll drop in tidbits as they hit me. Typing it fast/dropping it in without double checking so forgive any typos.

7:35pmET: I like the Giants tonight, but man...minus Janoris Jenkins and B.J. Goodson isn't helpful
7:17pmET: The Chiefs losing Center Mitch Morse for weeks is no small thing.
4:44pmET: Myles Garrett may play some this week -- my suddenly beloved young Browns DST, and their criminally insane D-C, have Brissett, Dalton, McCown, Watson the next 4 weeks...four MUST sleeper starts (depending on your DST in place already. With any QB play at all the Browns could be 3-2/3-3 after the next few weeks.
2:00pmET: Ryan Nassib signed to the Jags...which means the Blake Bortles getting traded/cut moment could happen this week. That could mean a slight dip for Allen Hurns and a tick up for Keelan Cole if Chad Henne is at the helm.
Will Nassib mean anything? Maybe. The Jags have no other QB after Henne. Brandon Allen is with the LA Rams...rostered so there is no reunion any time soon.
1:20pmET: Corey Coleman out for 6-8 weeks with a broken hand. I would not put a lot of effort trying to figure out the remaining FF 'winners' here. Rashard Higgins is OK, but not 'wow'. He had a nice Week 2 but he was cut before the season...so, not a priority guy. Ricardo Louis has talent. Duke Johnson could see more lopoks. DeValve-Njoku could see more looks. There is no WR that I see to lean on here with erratic DeShone Kizer.
If I were to throw a Hail Mary at it -- go grab Kasen Williams in deeper leagues. He fits what Kizer likes to do -- throw up from grabs into a crowd. Williams made a living doing that all preseason with Seattle.
