By the end of this week -- when the severity of the hamstring, groin, knee, and shoulder injuries suffered in Week 2 crystallizes -- fantasy owners may only have one or two players lost for a significant amount of time.While this may seem like good news, its actually going to create a messy set of logic games on the waiver wire.---THE INJURY REPORTTake Jonathan Stewarts hamstring injury, for instance. Stewart owners are going to have to decide whether to add Fozzy Whitaker (who had 131 total yards filling in for Stewart) or Cameron Artis-Payne (who has been a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but more neatly fits the lead back profile). And even if an owner successfully claims the correct back, theres Mike Tolbert stealing touchdowns -- followed by the possibility of Stewart being healthy enough to play. Once thats all settled, a fundamental fantasy dilemma remains: Do you let go of a potential star whos off to a slow start (someone like Titans wideout Rishard Matthews) for an iffy player with a new opportunity?This is going to be an issue throughout fantasy football.Adrian Petersons knee injury appears serious enough to keep him out for a significant amount of time, and while Jerick McKinnon seems like the obvious backup, it was Matt Asiata getting six carries in Mondays win -- McKinnon got two. In an odd twist, Petersons wife said after the game that hell be OK and was walking on the injured knee, according to a tweet from Larry Fitzgerald, Sr., a prominent member of the Minneapolis-area media and the father of the Arizona wide receiver.---MORE SIGNIFICANT INJURIESIn Detroit, Ameer Abdullahs foot injury opens the door for either second-year running back Zach Zenner or rookie Dwayne Washington. Zenner has been a healthy scratch the last two weeks, while Washington had 56 total yards Sunday, most of them on two big plays. Washington may quietly be the most intriguing add of the week.In San Diego, a Danny Woodhead injury turns all eyes to... Kenneth Farrow? The rookie caught 74 passes over four years at the University of Houston, and is the closest thing the Chargers have to a Woodhead-style pass-catching back. Expect the Chargers -- if Woodhead is out -- to get creative with their playmakers, like Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman.---A BRIEF INTERMISSION TO LOOK AT ACTUAL PERFORMANCESBrowns receiver Corey Coleman built on his Week 1 momentum with a Week 2 full-on explosion, catching five passes on eight targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns. He is available in 38 percent of CBSSports.com leagues. But, a fun fact: Terrelle Pryor had more targets from new starter Josh McCown (who, naturally, also may be hurt).Will Fuller also put forth a 104-yard game -- his second 100-yard game in a row -- to prove his legitimacy as Houstons No. 2 receiver and confirm a fantasy-friendly rapport with Brock Osweiler.Willie Snead (five catches on eight targets, 54 yards and a TD) and Stefon Diggs (nine catches, 11 targets, 182 yards, TD) continued to remind us that their 2015 breakouts werent flukes. Diggs, especially, looked like a bona fide NFL superstar Sunday night, with a series of deft moves and cuts against Green Bay.The Steelers had a value shift at wide receiver, as Sammie Coates (available in 81 percent of CBSSports.com leagues) hauled in 97 yards on two receptions, while last weeks waiver wire darling, Eli Rogers, managed just one catch for 9 yards.Titans rookie Taj Sharpe finished with an unimpressive four catches for 33 yards, but received a team-high seven targets, so he isnt a drop candidate just yet. In the same game, Lions wideout Golden Tate managed just two catches for 13 yards, but they came on nine targets. While Tate has been a bit of a bust thus far, he has 16 targets on the season -- more than Eric Decker, Allen Hurns, or Travis Benjamin.---WE NOW RETURN TO YOUR REGULARLY-SCHEDULED INJURY UPDATESJimmy Garoppolos shoulder injury and Tom Bradys impending return will create a messy window for the Patriots in Week 3 (a Thursday night game) and Week 4, as their only healthy, non-suspended quarterback is rookie Jacoby Brissett. Expect to hear names like T.J. Yates and Ryan Lindley thrown around, but expect Brissett to start.Arian Foster (backup: Jay Ajayi), Thomas Rawls (backup: Christine Michael) and Doug Martin (backup: probably Charles Sims, maybe Jacquizz Rodgers) also suffered injuries, but the extent wont be known until later this week.And it would be wise to keep an eye on Brandon Marshalls status. While hes been known to play through injury, a possible MCL issue could sideline him and bring Quincy Enunwa up wide receiver rankings for Week 3.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com. Keanu Neal Jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance.

Courtney Upshaw Jersey . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. DETROIT -- Darius Slay smiled, ear to ear, and his eyes lit up while he sat on the stool in front of his stall.Detroits standout cornerback cant wait to play on Thanksgiving with a lot at stake for a change.The Lions will have a featured game on the holiday as usual, continuing a tradition that dates to 1934, but it will be very significant to them in the standings unlike many matchups over the past two-plus decades.Detroit (6-4) hosts the Minnesota Vikings (6-4) in a matchup of first-place teams in the NFC North. It will be the first time the Lions are in first place on the holiday since 1993, which is also the most recent year the franchise won a division title.I love it, Slay said. We know the risks, and the stakes.If the Lions beat Minnesota for the second time this month and sweep the season series, they would win the head-to-head tiebreaker if both teams are tied at the end of the regular season.You cant help but think about that, said Detroit receiver Golden Tate, who flipped into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown in overtime at Minnesota in Week 9.The winner of the game will definitely have an advantage in the division and will be in the drivers seat down the stretch.If the Vikings win, they will move into first place with a favorable schedule that includes only one team that currently has a winning record.I dont necessarily think this is necessarily for the division championship, Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said. Its not like its the last game of the season.Here are some things to watch when Detroit and Minnesota kick off the NFLs holiday tripleheader:DIGGING IT: The Lions limited receiver Stefon Diggs to a season-low 6.15 yards per catch in the previous meeting, but he set a career high with 13 receptions.You let him catch too many and at some point in time hes going to burn you because hes explosive, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said.Thats an area where weve just got to continue to get better. Theres not a point in time where you say, `Hey, well let that guy catch as many balls as hed like.ROLLING ROBERTS: When the Lions signed Andre Roberts in June, a month after Washington cut him, they were hoping he would compete to be their returner and possibly provide depth at receiver.Roberts has surpassed expectations, becoming the first Detroit player to return two punts for a touchdown in a season since 2005. He has also made some clutch catches, incluuding a 27-yard reception that set up Matt Praters game-tying kick as time expired at Minnesota.ddddddddddddBERGER THE BULWARK: One bright spot on Minnesotas depleted offensive line has been veteran center Joe Berger, who will make his 36th straight start.The native of Newaygo, Michigan, played at NCAA Division II Michigan Tech and went undrafted before stints with the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys.Hes a really smart guy, quarterback Sam Bradford said. Hes really helped me with protections. I think thats one of the first things when you learn a new offense as a quarterback. You want to know, `How am I being protected? What are the calls? And hes been awesome.MAKING HISTORY: Detroit, which has trailed in the fourth quarter of every game, is the first NFL team to have the first 10 games decided by seven points or fewer.SPECIAL SPECIALISTS: Detroits Sam Martin and Minnesotas Jeff Locke are two of the top punters in the NFL. Martin leads the league with a net average of 45.8 yards. Locke ranks second in the NFL with 25 punts pinned inside the 20.Last week when Minnesota was clinging to a six-point lead over Arizona late in the fourth quarter, Locke had a 72-yard punt with a friendly roll to push the Cardinals deep into their territory.What Locke has learned to do, perhaps unlike former Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh and some of his struggling peers, is forget about mistakes.In the past, I mightve been sitting on a bad punt and letting it affect the next punts, he said. But now Ive learned especially this year just to clear it.Soon after Walsh missed an extra point and had a field goal blocked in the loss to Detroit, the Vikings released the former All-Pro kicker and signed Kai Forbath to replace him.Forbath and Prater both had an extra point blocked last week. They contributed to the total of 12 extra points missed , the most in one week since the NFL merger in 1970.Prater has been an asset for the Lions. He made a season-long, 58-yard field goal at Minnesota before the Lions won 22-16. He has also made three game-winning field goals this season with 1:29, 1:28 and 4 seconds remaining in games.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Larry Lage on Twitter at www.twitter.com/larrylage Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Baseball Jerseys Free Shipping Cheapest College Jerseys Sale Cheap Football Jerseys China Nike NFL Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys From China MLB Jerseys Outlet Canada Wholesale NBA Jerseys Canada Store Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap Authentic Jerseys Canada ' ' '
