Injuries and players missing time for other reasons are always a big deal in fantasy football but even more so in DFS where one player’s issues can completely alter an entire game and the “next man up” mantra becomes vital due to the salary cap nature of DFS. Thus, it’s important to stay on top of all the injury and suspension news before locking in your DFS lineups.
Here are the most relevant players on the slate in danger of missing time or returning to action on Conference Championship Weekend:
Questionable for the Patriots: Tom Brady
Slight Downgrade: Tom Brady
Tom Brady reportedly suffered a cut in his throwing hand on Wednesday that required four stitches. Of course, the Patriots aren’t telling us anything. So we’re in the dark about how much this injury is going to affect Brady on Sunday. My guess is it will affect him, yet he still remains the best QB play of the week. Don’t adjust your strategy significantly.
