Week 5 Sunday Morning Fantasy Football Update
By: The Football Girl | Posted: October 07, 2012
Updated 3:06 PM ET: Aaron Hernandez is inactive today.
Here is some of the news, injuries and otherwise, pouring in from last night and this morning that may impact your fantasy lineup.
Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez remains a game-time decision as he attempts to return from the ankle injury. While Hernandez did participate in practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, the consensus is Hernandez will sit out one more week and return Week 6 against the Seahawks. There is no confirmation either way, however, but fantasy owners need a backup plan, especially since the Patriots-Broncos kick off at 4:25 ET
Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi. That means rookie Josh Gordon will join Greg Little in the starting roles. Gordon is not a recommended fantasy start but someone to keep an eye on since the Browns have high hopes for his future.
Texans WR Andre Johnson practiced in full Saturday and is a must- start Monday night, even with the groin injury.
As a reminder, the New York Jets defense is a pretty worthless fantasy start at this point. Besides losing Darrelle Revis, the Jets haven’t held an opponent to under 23 points this season. This defense was among on the FleaFlicker Top 10 dropped list for this week.
Speaking of the Jets, their new WR corps is Jeremy Kerley, Chaz Schilens, and Clyde Gates. Of the three, Kerley, who has already scored and developed some chemistry with Mark Sanchez, may be worth a start in deeper leagues.
And from Friday’s newsreel: WR Hakeem Nicks will miss his third straight game today. And Ramses Barden is out with concussion symptoms. That makes Domenik Hixon a very strong start against the Browns today.
That’s it for now. But it’s only 9:30 AM ET. I’ll have more updates as the morning unfolds. In the meantime, feel free to ask any general start/sit questions.
