Hello all! Thanks for entering The Fake Football Emergency Room and let’s discuss some heavily started players who are on the injury report this week. QB Terrelle Pryor- Oakland Raiders- Questionable If Pryor wants to play this Sunday he has to pass one final concussion test tomorrow. I personally would not gamble on him this week even though he has a nice matchup against Washington. The only owners who are biting their nails right now are Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton owners looking for a bye-week plug and play. RB Ray Rice- Baltimore Ravens- Questionable The Ravens are hopeful Rice can play, but the fact that they haven’t named him the starter yet has me worried. My gut says he will sit out one more week and be fully healthy for a big matchup against the Dolphins next week. Reggie Bush- Detroit Lions- Probable Bush is back after a one week absence in which he admitted he could have suited up. I expect Reggie to receive his normal workload and he is a must start in all formats. LeVeon Bell- Pittsburgh Steelers- Probable Bell is slated to start for the Steelers in London this week. He has a tasty matchup against the Vikings going in his favor as well. I’m seeing 20 touches and a short touchdown this week. Start as a flex. WR Julio Jones- Atlanta Falcons- Questionable Julio is here to make his weekly questionable appearance. He is good to go and should be started. Business as usual. Roddy White- Atlanta Falcons- Questionable When you hear a guy say he has to “gut it out”, that is never a good sign. White has yet to be effective on his bum wheel, so I would keep him on fantasy benches until he can get his explosion back. Danny Amendola- New England Patriots- Questionable It is looking like it may be one more week before Amendola returns to the field. Dial him up week 5! Larry Fitzgerald- Arizona Cardinals- Probable Fitz had his most productive week of practice in a couple weeks. He seems to be healing fast and should be at/near 100 % for this game. The bad thing for Fitzgerald is that he will see a lot of Revis Island this week. If you are deep at WR I would look at your other options. Andre Johnson- Houston Texans- Questionable Andre said to the media that he is playing this week, so I believe him. He is almost a must play no matter the matchup (Richard Sherman) as he already has 25 receptions on the young season. Nate Burleson- Detroit Lions- Out Good ole Nate lost an arm over a slice of pizza. At least it was deep dish though! With Burleson possibly done for the season it is now time to get a glimpse of Ryan Broyles. I like Broyles prospects and is a must add if he is still there on your waiver wire. Mike Williams/Vincent Jackson- Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Questionable John Clayton said both are expected to play and you should always trust a guy that rocks a Slayer T-Shirt. Glennon starting won’t help their prospects for the rest of the season and in particular this week. I’m still starting V-Jax, but I’m taking a wait and see approach with Williams. Miles Austin- Dallas Cowboys- Out Miles Austin and hamstrings do not get along. This could be a multi-week issue folks. Sad to see as he was in line for a possible 1,000 yard season. TE Rob Gronkowski- New England Patriots- Questionable Gronkowski is the hardest guy to predict this week. The Sunday night start does not help fantasy owners at all! Gronk is so good on a per-game basis that you almost have to start him if he plays. If you are not a gambling man then play your backup. If I had to become a doctor overnight and give you a prognosis I would say he starts and plays.   Are there any injuries you are worried about or do you have any lineup questions? If so, follow me and ask me questions on Twitter at Adam Cook Fantasy (@fantasy_schnerd).   The post The Fake Football Emergency Room: Week 4 appeared first on Fantasy Football Rankings & more, The Fake Football.
