Dr. D checking in on injuries

I received an e-mail with some injury thoughts on some current guys from our Dr. D, our resident physician and fantasy freak. He had some good insight on some of these injured players, so I thought I’d share.

Anthony Gonzalez/Felix Jones – Like with what I said last year about Sidney Rice, the recovery for these injuries is completely variable.  Some athletes start feeling “right” within a few weeks,and others take a very long time to get their proprioception (or position sense) back to normal.  If I had to guess, I would say that Gonzalez would be back to normal sooner than Jones, since Jones’ game is far more likely to be affected by this injury than Gonzalez’.

Willie Parker – I have been down on Parker for a while, and all this injury does is slow him down even more.  From his history, he’ll likely try to practice play through it, which should only exacerbate it, making him slower and less agile.  I doubt PIT will have patience with that.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
