Week 1 was a phenomenal start to a great season that seems full of promise. Many teams have already been challenged severely due to major injuries, like the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos.
Many analysts predicted that there would be more injuries than usual this season, due to the short time of preparation that players received because of the lockout. For the most part, you can say the amount of injuries are in the same ballpark as recent years. However, there seem to be many more key players that have suffered from injuries than normal. Marques Colston, Arian Foster and Hakeem Nicks just to name a few.
Who hurts the most from these key injuries? Fantasy football owners. The loss of Marques Colston until Week 6 doesn't only hurt FF owners that obtain that player, it also affects owners that have Drew Brees on their team, since Colston is a major contributor to that offense. It's the same issue with Hakeem Nicks and Eli Manning. Having said that, the star wideout is likely to return on Monday for the Giants' Week 2 battle against the St. Louis Rams.
