Unfortunately, injuries are part of Football and pretty much every week, players go down. This week was no different. At times, some of the injuries are minor, while at others it can impact a player for multiple weeks, and even for the entire season.

Fantasy owners who lost players that are expected to miss significant time, adjustments need to be made, and the waiver wire will be your best friend.

With that said, let’s take a look at some of this week’s injuries and the impact of the injury.

Will Fuller – Texans: Fuller tore his ACL in Thursday night’s game against the Dolphins and will miss the remainder of the season. He is expected to undergo surgery this upcoming week and will begin his recovery to get back on track for next season. Rookie Keke Coutee is expected to move into the No. 2 wide out position for the Texans when he returns from his hamstring injury. He should be added in all formats.

Tyreek Hill – Chiefs: Hill suffered a groin injury during Sunday’s game against the Broncos, which sidelined him for the rest of the afternoon. The injury occurred late in the game and after the game it was reported that it does not appear to be a serious injury. Groin injuries are tricky, so it is definitely something to keep a close eye on throughout the week. If he cannot give it a go, Chris Conley could get a bump.

Ronald Jones – Buccaneers: Jones suffered a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the game. He finished the day with two carries for negative three yards and one catch for four yards. It is uncertain whether or not the injury will sideline him for next week’s game against the Panthers. Regardless, Jones is not a running back that should be considered at this time, as he has not been productive when given the opportunity. Peyton Barber carries the ball 19 times this week and should continue to see the bulk of the work moving forward. Jacquizz Rodgers could also see a bump if Jones misses time.
