Saturday Night Injury Roundup

Saturday Night Injury Roundup

Definitely Out

Matt Forte - Michael Bush should get the majority of the carries unless they plan on Kalil Bell being a significant part of the offense. The Rams have a few injuries on their defensive line, which will help Bush's style of running.

Kevin Boss - Tony Moaki may see a few more looks, but he still isn't worth carrying in most leagues. 

Jeremy Maclin - This means DeSean Jackson will get all of Patrick Peterson's attention. This injury plus King Dunlap's injury (Offensive tackle) means that the Cardinals defense could have a Michael Vick feast. 

Aaron Hernandez - Obviously we all know the situation here, but I like the impact on Brandon Lloyd and Rob Gronkowski the most.


Likely Out (Doubtful or especially Questionable)

Tony Scheffler - Scheffler had been taking a few catches away from Pettigrew. This week he probably won't be playing due to a calf injury.

Pierre Garcon - Garcon is still doubtful, but there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason about who RG3 throws the ball to. Aldrick Robinson is the most likely individual with 6 catches (tied for most on the team) and 92 yards over two games (second to only Garcon). 


Offensive Players Significantly Helped by Defensive Injuries

Darren McFadden - McFadden hasn't been playing especially well, but he is getting plenty of touches. With James Harrison and Troy Polamalu out, this matchup isn't as daunting as it otherwise would be.
