Fantasy Football Week 3: Waiver Wire Advice, Injuries, Start Em Sit Em & More

Jamaal Charles, Michael Vick, Miles Austin, Tony Romo, Arian Foster, Stevie Johnson, Aaron Hernandez ... While that would be one heck of a fantasy team, all of the aforementioned players suffered an injury in some form or another in Week 2 action.

Tony Romo returned to the game and led Big D on a game-winning, OT drive and is expected back on the field next week.

Jamaal Charles, on the other hand, has reportedly suffered an ACL injury that will likely end his season.

Michael Vick has a "slight" concussion, and his situation has to be closely monitored.

Miles Austin, who blew up the San Francisco 49ers secondary yesterday, also blew up his hamstring again. Reports indicate he could miss at least two weeks.

Arian Foster got back on the field in Week 2, but didn't last long and was held out of the second half. His hamstring injury, like all hamstring injuries, is going to need complete rest before he can take the field at 100-percent.

Stevie Johnson had to limp off the field late in the Bills' win over the Raiders, but his injury is not believed to be significant. 

But Aaron Hernandez, who Tom Brady has been very fond of, suffered some form of knee injury. His status is still unknown (he is on the Patriots), but it could be a problem.

All these injuries will have a major impact on Week 3 of the fantasy football season. Teams we thought we expected more from in Week 1 showed it in Week 2. And teams that came out hard with surprising Week 1 wins, all didn't hold on through Week 2.

As expected, we're off to a wild start for the 2011 NFL season.

The fantasy season is even wilder. A number of waiver wire players will become starters this week with all the injuries in tow, and things look like they won't slow down at all in the near future.

Keep checking back this week as we update you on all the latest waiver wire advice, injury reports and lineup changes you need to know about.
