Injuries and Waiver Wire week 18 2021
WEEK 17 INJURY REPORT WEEK 18 WAIVER WIRE:
WEEK 17 INJURY REPORT
Joe Burrow (Knee) - Burrow had to exit the game in the final seconds due to a knee injury. Backup QB Brandon Allen handled the kneel down and spike situation that led to the Bengals' game winning field goal. Burrow said the knee is "good enough" in his post-game press conference.
Michael Carter (Concussion) - Carter suffered a concussion and did not return in week 17.
Damien Harris (Hamstring) - Harris injured his hamstring and could not complete the game. After the game, Harris downplayed the injury, claiming "I'm good."
Ronald Jones II (Ankle) - Ronald Jones was unable to finish Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Ke'Shawn Vaughn (Ribs) - After the game, Bruce Arians said that Vaughn suffered a ribs injury.
Antonio Brown (Non-Injury) - Antonio Brown quit in the middle of a game and has been released by the Buccaneers.
Michael Gallup (Knee) - Gallup injured his knee while scoring a touchdown. The team fears Gallup has a torn ACL but will know more after an MRI tomorrow.
Ricky Seals-Jones (Neck) - Seals-Jones was carted off the field after colliding with a cameraman and was ruled out for the rest of the game.
WEEK 17 WAIVER WIRE:
Trey Lance (SF) - 49ers Starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a right thumb injury prior to the week 17 matchup vs the Texans. Lance filled in and scored 23 fantasy points. If Garoppolo needs to miss another game, Lance is a great addition for fantasy managers searching for QB help.
Rashaad Penny (SEA) - Somehow, Rashaad Penny is still available in over 65% of NFL.com fantasy leagues at this point in time. If you are still playing in week 18 and Penny is on your waiver wire, please rectify that. He needs to be on more rosters. Over the last several weeks, Penny has shown why he was a former first-round pick by the Seahawks. He has scored 26.80, 6.40 (the only down game), 19.50 and 32.50 fantasy points since week 14. He's been on a role, let's ride the hot hand to a championship.
Rhamondre Stevenson (NE) - Patriots starting RB Damien Harris injured his hamstring on Sunday, and Stevenson played a lead role in his absence. Stevenson had 19 rushing attempts for 107 yards vs the Jaguars. If Harris misses week 18, Stevenson will make for an interesting play vs the Dolphins.
Braxton Berrios (NYJ) - We recommended Braxton Berrios as an addition last week, and he came through in a big way, scoring two touchdowns and 25.70 fantasy points. He's basically the last Jets receiver standing, so let's continue to go back to the well with him next week.
Cedrick Wilson (DAL) - Unfortunately, we saw Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup suffer a potentially serious knee injury on Sunday. We have seen Cedrick Wilson step in for Gallup this season and perform well in his absence. If you need a flex option in week 18, take a chance on Wilson.
Also Consider: A.J. Green (ARI)
Gerald Everett (SEA) - Quietly, over the last two weeks, Gerald Everett has been a top-10 fantasy scoring TE. He's available in over 60% of fantasy leagues. If your tight end is injured heading into week 18, take a look at Everett.
Also Consider: Foster Moreau (LV)
