Team Pos Player Injury Wed Thu Fri Off
ARZ S Adrian Wilson ankle L L L Q DB3 value but check inactives before starting.
ARZ CB Patrick Peterson groin - L L Q Injury or not I don't think Peterson should be in lineups this week.
ATL CB Brent Grimes knee O O O O Placed on IR by Falcons
ATL LB Sean Weatherspoon hamstring L L     Situation to monitor but with it being a MNF game, might need to look elsewhere.
BAL LB Paul Kruger back DNP DNP L Q LB designation bigger impact on lack of fantasy value.
BAL DE Pernell McPhee knee DNP DNP L Q An option in deeper leagues, but watch inactives report.
CAR DE Greg Hardy illness - DNP F P Full practice means he should be good to go this week.
CIN DE Carlos Dunlap knee L L L Q Wait to see him actually on the field before putting him in your lineup.
CIN CB Dre Kirkpatrick knee DNP DNP DNP O OUT
CIN CB Jason Allen quadricep DNP L L Q Should play but look for DB help elsewhere.

DAL DT Jay Ratliff ankle DNP DNP DNP O OUT
DAL LB DeMarcus Ware hamstring L L L P Should be good to go.

DEN CB Chris Harris ankle DNP DNP     In a walking boot and doesn't look promising to play.
DET S Louis Delmas knee DNP DNP DNP D Unlikely to play.  Not a viable fantasy option this week.
DET CB Chris Houston ankle L L L Q Houston could play this week but isn't a safe fantasy option.
HOU DE JJ Watt elbow F F F P Expected to play. Keep him in your lineup!
HOU LB Brian Cushing ribs F L F P Expected to play, projected as 3rd best LB this week.
HOU LB Brooks Reed hip L L F P Should play but not a fantasy option.
IND LB Pat Angerer foot DNP DNP DNP O OUT Jerrell Freeman is his replacement.
IND DE Dwight Freeney ankle DNP DNP DNP O OUT.  Not good for the Colts defense.
JAC DE George Selvie knee DNP DNP DNP OUT OUT

JAC LB Daryl Smith groin DNP DNP DNP OUT OUT
KCC S Kendrick Lewis shoulder L L L O OUT
KCC CB Brandon Flowers foot L F F Q Flowers should get back on field this week.  Not a good fantasy option.
KCC DE Allen Bailey ankle L L L O OUT
KCC DT Anthony Toribio ankle L L L O OUT
MIA DT Randy Starks groin L L F P Starks was a great play in DT mandatory leagues last week.  Should play this week and is a must start in DT mandatory leagues, DL2/3 value in combined leagues.
MIN CB Chris Cook biceps L L L P Should play but would avoid for fantasy purposes.
NEP S Patrick Chung shoulder F F F P Will play on Sunday.
NOS CB Jabari Greer groin F F F Q Full practice all week should get Greer back on the field.  Fantasy wise look elsewhere for DB help.
NOS LB Scott Shanle knee L L F Q No fantasy value, even if he wasn't on the injury report.
NYG LB Keith Rivers hamstring L L L D Rivers with injury issues? Color me not surprised.  Avoid him this week.
NYG CB Prince Amukamara ankle L L L Q The Giants secondary needs him back, fantasy owners should wait to see him on field first.
NYG CB Michael Coe hamstring L L L P Giants can ill afford to lose another CB.
NYJ DT Sione Pouha back L L F P Will help to stifle Steelers inside run game.  No fantasy value.
NYJ CB Darrelle Revis concussion DNP DNP L O Bump up the Steelers WRs.  Kyle Wilson will replace Revis and garners consideration in deeper CB mandatory leagues.
NYJ S Laron Landry heel F DNP F P Landry will most likely be on the injury report every week.  After week 1 it looks like he is a viable DB.
NYJ LB Bryan Thomas hamstring DNP DNP DNP O OUT.  Sneaky play is Aaron Maybin in deeper big play leagues.
NYJ CB Antonio Cromartie shoulder F F F P Will play, he has to without Revis.
OAK DT Richard Seymour knee L L L P Option in DT mandatory leagues, but check inactives.
OAK LB Rolando McClain ankle DNP L L Q Will definitely have to check the inactive report before putting McClain in your lineups.  However, I don't really like the matchup so it might be best to find a replacement.
OAK CB Ron Bartell shoulder DNP DNP DNP O OUT
PHI S Kurt Coleman facial lacerations L F F P Football players don't miss games due to facial lacerations.
PIT S Troy Polamalu calf DNP DNP DNP Q Very likely to miss week 2. Avoid for fantasy purposes.
PIT LB James Harrison knee DNP DNP DNP Q Looks like Chris Carter will get the start again in week 2.  Avoid Harrison until he gets back on the field.
SDC DT Antonio Garay ankle F F F P Only a consideration in DT mandatory leagues. 
SDC CB Quentin Jammer thumb DNP F F P Pass for fantasy.
SF LB NaVorro Bowman shoulder L F PNC P Should be good to go but monitor game day inactives.
STL DT Michael Brockers ankle DNP DNP DNP O OUT 
TBB CB EJ Biggers foot F L L D No fantasy value.
TBB CB Anthony Gaitor hamstring F F L D No fantasy value.
TEN LB Colin McCarthy ankle DNP DNP DNP O OUT.  Witherspoon should slide to MLB, don't see much fantasy value with him.  Too risky to rely on.
TEN DT Jurrell Casey elbow F F F Q If in a DT mandatory league monitor inactives.
WAS S Brandon Meriweather knee DNP DNP DNP OUT OUT 2-4 weeks due to knee injury. Gomes started in week 1, not Reed Doughty.  Shanahan has played games with the S spot before so avoid if possible.
