Through three games this season, Sims has five catches for 67 yards. The Michigan State product has all the tools to be a successful tight end in this league and with Jordan Cameron already being ruled out for Week 4, this could be a chance for him to shine. He is the future at the position for the Dolphins and it is time for him to step up. Sims might be worth a stash in deeper leagues and definitely in dynasty formats.
The Redskins got beat up on Sunday in their win over the Giants. Washington is still waiting for further diagnosis on starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland as well as offensive linemen Shawn Lauvao and Kory Lichtensteiger. DeAngelo Hall is just the first results to come available because he himself confirmed it with the media. The Redskins will be juggled a lot this week especially if they lose Breeland as well. Veteran Will Blackmon stepped up and played well for Breeland. Duke Ihenacho and Deshazor Everett will be called upon to pick up the slack for Hall. We should also expect the Redskins to give more playing time to their rookie Su'a Cravens, who had the game winning interception of Eli Manning to seal the Redskins victory on Sunday.
The veteran tight end was forced to leave the Dolphins' win over the Browns int he second quarter and never returned. Most feared it was a concussion and it was confirmed on Monday. Cameron has already been ruled out for Week 4 as he is placed in the league's concussion protocol. It is never good when you are ruled out this early in the week.
The thought is that Jared Sullinger will go into training camp as the Raptors' starting power forward. While Sullinger looks to be the starter, backup Patrick Patterson will see a lot of court time for Toronto. Just because Jared is named the starter, do not think that this boosts his fantasy value. Sullinger will be in another contract year, looking for that big pay day after averaging of just 10.3 points, 8.3 boards and 2.3 assists on 43.5 percent shooting last season. He is worth a late-round flier in standard leagues.
The Giants third round draft pick seems to have gotten lucky with this injury as most feared Lisfranc. Thompson will likely only miss at most a few weeks. We will likely see Nat Berhe get the start while Thompson is out of the lineup.
The Chargers have lost their insider linebacker Manti Te'o for the season with a torn Achilles'. Most experts saw this coming when he went down without contact in coverage. This could not have come at a worse time for the linebacker who was in the final year of his rookie contract. Te'o becomes the third player the Chargers have lost to an Achilles' injury already this year.
Ripkowski is optimistic that the back injury he suffered in Sunday's game is not serious, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Green Bay selected Ripkowski in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft despite the presence of long-time fan favorite John Kuhn on the roster. Kuhn is gone and he has filled that role thus far this season. We will update you when more information comes available.
The 34-year-old veteran kicker is 7-for-8 in field attempts this season and his only miss being from over 50 yards. Nugent hurt his shoulder trying to make a tackle but there has been no word on the extent of the injury as of yet. We will update you as soon as more information is available.
There has not been any new information released on the Buccaneers tackle but we will update you on his status as it comes available. Pamphile was brought in for depth on the offensive line because of his versatility. He spent time at guard and right tackle last season and has worked hard at getting acclimated to the center position.
After 13 seasons, it appears Bosh has hit a skid. After being sidelined several times last season with blood clots in his leg, it may be time for the veteran star to hang up his sneakers, and pursue the next step in his career. Or, perhaps, another NBA team will take a shot on him.
