“Word On The Street”
Eagles added RB Boston Scott to help fill the space left after Corey Clement’s sprained knee vs
· Big Ben (ribs) seems ok to be playing week 15 vs the Pats. He will be an upside QB1 with a ton of passing likely on tap for this home game.
· Austin Ekeler is looking OUT week 15 with a concussion and a neck issue. The Chargers play week 15 on a short week on Thursday night so that almost guarantees Ekeler won’t have enough time to recover in time. Justin Jackson will be a beast RB this week with Ekeler and Melvin Gordon out.
· Spencer Ware is looking sketchy for week 15’s Thursday night game vs the Chargers. He has a shoulder injury and a hamstring issue. Ware may play but you will need to monitor his Wednesday practice reports as well as his pregame warm-ups before starting him week 15. Tyreek Hill was also a DNP Monday which is a concern as well and one to monitor right up until kick off.
· Pierre Garcon hit the IR with a knee issue ending his 2018 season. Dante Pettis remains the only 49ers WR to be fantasy worthy.
· Jordan Reed suffered a toe sprain week 14 and he could be in jeopardy of missing the ROS. No one should care as this guy has sucked this year far more than he has produced so Reed is a low end TE option even when perfectly healthy, let alone banged up and with a new crappier QB.
· The Ravens seems to be flip-flopping a bit on whether or not they will ride Lamar Jackson the rest of the way in 2018. Flacco is healthy and now they are talking about splitting reps (which is even a dumber idea than sitting Lamar was). The Ravens confused and will not win this year so let the kid play is what we’d do.
· Kenneth Dixon’s role will increase week 15 for the Ravens so back off using Gus Edwards for now.
· ODB was a late scratch week 14 and that crippled many fantasy owners who were banking on him being active. Early word is he is looking better to play week 15 but we are leery. If he doesn’t play, he’d cap off what has been an overall down fantasy year for him, if he finished BIG, he can salvage this season.
· In the most shocking sudden news of the 2018 season, TMZ released a video of Hunt beating his then girlfriend in a hotel hallway so it took about 5 hours for the Chiefs to send him home then release him so Spencer Ware because a free top 10 RB1 stud beast on an amazing offense if you can add him. Hunt will likely be suspended the first 6 games of the 2019 season and he’ll be on a new time like Philly or something.
