Another week in the NFL means another week spent staring at the injury report for your favorite team or a team that possesses one of your fantasy players.
For fans, all that matters is a team win, and a squad at full strength has a better chance of notching a victory.
For fantasy owners, they need to make sure one of their players isn't injured in order to avoid getting a devastating bagel. Such a scenario will stack the deck in an opponent's favor, so having a solid bench or making good waiver-wire moves quickly can help prevent that.
Not to mention, with four teams having a bye in Week 5, a single injury could lead to even worse depletion of a roster than already may be the case.
A guy like cornerback Champ Bailey of the Denver Broncos will be someone to watch this week. He has yet to play a game this season and is listed as questionable (foot), per ESPN.com. He is the type of impact player that the Broncos—or any team—could use to give the defense a boost.
Bailey is just one of many key players who are injured and will be focused on this week.
Not only will we give you updates before and during games for all key players who are injured, but we will also share fantasy analysis and possible replacements in the event that one of your players is unable to take the field on Sunday.
