The ULTIMATE Cheat SheetJeff Mans Draft Book - Just Updated With the Tony Romo News (Out 8-10 wks)
Cain has been on the DL since August 18th with a back strain. He'll need a little more time before returning to the Giants, but fantasy owners shouldn't be awaiting his return. He's posted a vomit inducing 5.81 ERA this season across 83.2 innings with a below average 7.10 K/9.
Casillas started only seven games for the Giants last season but appeared in 15 games, recording 62 tackles, two sacks, and an interception. The Giants will hope for the best, and we will know more about how much time he'll miss once we know the results of his X-rays.
He won't return. He had intercepted a pass earlier in the game, but the Colts rash of injuries continues, and his night is over. He recorded 38 tackles last season and forced two fumbles in 14 games for Indianapolis. They can't afford any more injuries to what is already expected to be one of the worst defenses in football this season.
He's the most enticing option in the Lions backfield, although Theo Riddick offers plenty of PPR appeal. Abdullah was one of the buzziest names in the preseason a year ago but failed to live up to the hype, rushing 143 times for 597 yards and two touchdowns. He also reeled in 25 balls on 38 targets for 183 yards and a score. He's got upside on his current RB2/3 price tag.
It's a devastating blow for the 12-year veteran as well as the Ravens. Crockett Gillmore will assume the starting tight end duties in Baltimore with this news, but isn't a starting fantasy option in standard 10 or 12 team leagues.
Once a highly thought of starting pitching prospect, Montero has been overshadowed by the emergence of other starters in the Mets organization. He's pitched in two games for the Mets out of relief, but has started 24 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He's pitched primarily in the hitter-friendly PCL and has not been effective, and on the season is sporting a 5.15 ERA with 106 strikeouts and 59 walks in 127.2 innings. Should he draw the start on Monday, he would face the Marlins at home.
He'll have a nice matchup with the Padres. He's easily avoidable in standard mixed leagues, having posted a 4.92 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across his 130 innings with the Braves this season with a 5-11 record. He's a deep league desperation streaming option only.
It was a non-contact injury on the first play of the game, and he couldn't put much weight on his leg as he was helped off the field. Both are bad signs. He's undergoing further testing in the locker room, but his night is clearly over. He was looking like the starting tight end for the Ravens heading into the season, but if this injury is serious, presumably Crockett Gillmore would be the next man up. Gillmore caught 33 balls for 412 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games last year, and wouldn't be of any interest in standard leagues.
