How Crippled Has Your Fantasy Team Become? – From the Bird’s Nest
So, how's your fantasy team doing?
Through three weeks in the NFL season, we've seen more fantasy starts go down than ever before.
Ben Roethlisberger. Drew Brees. Jay Cutler. Tony Romo.
Big Ben and Romo are out for multiple weeks. Brees and Cutler missed last week. This week they are undecided.
Now, Andrew Luck has a shoulder injury and is day to day.
DeMarco Murray hasn't done much so far for Philly. Last week, he didn't do anything at all. He was inactive. Marshawn Lynch went out early with an injury. We aren't sure if either of them will play this week.
Shady McCoy hasn't been healthy. He may not play this week and will be limited if he does. Arian Foster hasn't played a down as of yet.
Dez Bryant might be done for the year. T Y Hilton was barely able to play in week two and was ineffective.
And, the beat goes on.
Just this past week, DeMarco Murray was good to go on Friday and inactive on Sunday. Marshawn Lynch went out before halftime. Big Ben suffered a really bad injury.
What do those three have in common? They are all on my fantasy team. And, what happened? I still won.
God Bless Larry Fitzgerald.
There are still fourteen weeks to go. Hopefully there won't be many more injuries that will keep key players out. But it could just be that Fantasy Football 2015 won't be about your great draft.
It might be about your last men standing.
