The Training Table - Injury Notes for Week 7
Plenty of fantasy impact players were injured in Week 6. The Falcon’s were on a bye week, but found out that Julio Jones was lost for the season. The Packers lost a playmaker for several weeks and the Dallas Cowboys running back is lost for some time as well. The fantasy football landscape is ever changing and when one player is injured another player gets an opportunity. Let’s find out the key injuries in Week 6 and how it will affect fantasy teams moving forward.
Another Week shows us why injuries are the rule and durability is the exception to the rule in football. In the Training Table, I will be providing you with recent news and notes as it pertains to injuries all season here at PFF Fantasy.
