Injury Reporting

SO the NFL has changed the Injury reporting rules.
They have essentially gotten rid of the pesky "Probable" label which we all ignored and have loosened the rules for "Questionable"
What does this mean to FFers?

More players listed as Questionable and more work to determine if they really have a chance to play.

Stay tuned for me.....

Ask The Expert Question of the Week: Pick one player who impressed you the most in week 1 of the preseason , and say why.

Week 1 of the preseason is in the books. Based on the games you watched, pick one player who impressed you the most, and say why.

The TEN RB situation. Both DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry impressed me. Both had quality time, Murray started and Henry followed in the second quarter, but both looked like work horses. Henry was especially impressive fighting for the extra yards. It looked like every call for the Titans was Henry up the middle. DeMarco had a 71 yard TD run and praised a couple of WRs for their blocks. These two will be fantasy gold this year.

ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.
