We are almost at the end of the fantasy football season, but before you start shedding tears, just know that there is still business to be taken care of, and you need updates on all the injuries to your players before you can rest easy.
Rest assured that you will be taken care of here because we don't want you panicking before the games even get started.
Without a doubt, the biggest name on the injury report this week is Adrian Peterson. He is the best fantasy running back and has had to miss the last three games with a sprained ankle.
The good news is that he will be back in the lineup this week against New Orleans. The bad news is that the team could limit his workload, at least compared to the way he is normally used, and that will affect the yards and touchdowns that he is able to get.
But the fact that he is back has fantasy owners everywhere breathing easier.
Another name on the injury report is Ben Roethlisberger. He did start practicing late in the week, but is still listed as questionable for the Steelers' game against the 49ers.
That game doesn't happen until Monday night, so he gets an extra 24 hours to rest and heal up. He always seems to suffer some kind of injury late in the season, but always plays, and more often than not ends up playing well.
While it would be easy for anyone to worry with two big names like Peterson and Roethlisberger on the injury report, if you have enough depth and trust your other starters, you should be fine.
Knowing many fantasy players, I have to say that calm and rational are two things that don't describe any of them this time of year.
We will have the latest news, notes and information on all the injuries that you need to pay attention to as you fill out your starting lineup for the penultimate week in fantasy football.
