The 2017-18 NFL season has been a season of injuries and mediocre play by the Patriots at home. It has been a strange one for sure, and a difficult one for fantasy owners. If you somehow have made it this far without any major injuries to your team, you are incredibly lucky and are probably off to a good start. Like most of you, I have not been lucky enough to escape the injury bug in most of my leagues, so that is why I compiled quite the list to help this week. With the running back position being decimated by injuries, that is what my main focus will be.
My fantasy team has lost Andrew Luck, Allen Robinson, David Johnson, Sam Bradford, John Brown, Dalvin Cook, and Chris Carson to injury 😐

On top of the injuries and underperformers, we now have bye weeks to worry about. The four teams on bye are the Falcons, Saints, Broncos and Redskins. There is a lot of fantasy relevance between these four teams, so plan accordingly and find those streamers!
Let’s just jump into it! I will be giving you some suggestions of players you should add or drop, with each player’s ownership in ESPN leagues.
