Who's in Handcuffs?Jeff Mans Gives You the Rundown on What NFL Players Should be Handcuffed and Why?
Even if Lawson is back this season, it may be too late to make a real impact for the Bills or your fantasy team. The Bills are fine if you are one of the last people to draft your D/ST, but you should be prepared to move on if another unit has a couple of good games.
The Bears D/ST appears to be heading in the right direction under John Fox, but this could be a big blow to a unit that doesn't have another noteworthy passrusher. Lamarr Houston and Leonard Floyd could be in line for more snaps until McPhee returns.
Verrett will likely pitch out of the bullpen, though he could wind up back in the rotation at some point. Verrett has been much better in relief this season, with a 2.81 ERA and 2.25 K/BB.
Reed really struggled at the big league level, so even though there isn't any fantasy impact here, you never want to hear a guy go down with an injury. He was 0-7 with a 7.36 ERA at the big league level this season, but the recent back spasms could keep him off the mound for some time. Consider him day-to-day.
Manaea was diagnosed with a right rhomboid strain and by the sound of it, missing his next start would be likely. We can't rule anything out at the moment, however, because he could respond very well with treatment and such. Consider him day-to-day, but understand he is in jeopardy of missing his second start of this scoring week.
