Coaching Tips

Week 3: Week 3: Dealing with injuries to your star players

  • A lot of fantasy starters suffered injuries in Week 2 including A.J. Green, Jamaal Charles and Robert Griffin III. Be sure to hit the waiver-wire before Week 3 to fill in any gaps you may have and pay close attention to players' status heading into your m
  • Don't overreact and cut your injured players right away. Unless they suffered a season-ending injury, your players should have a timetable for their return. If you drop them immediately, you may regret it when they come back later in the season.
  • Look to make a trade. Now that we have two full weeks in the books, you might be able to sell high on players who have performed well thus far. Try to get the best value from your league mates to build your team's depth after a big injury.
  • Don't forget about Thursday: The Bucaneers and Falcons square off on Thursday night, and both teams are loaded with fantasy starters. Don't forget to get them in your lineup before kickoff.
  • Remember that bye weeks start after Week 3. If you pick someone up on the waiver-wire as a replacement for an injured player, look ahead at his schedule so you can avoid disaster in the coming weeks.

Chicago signal-caller

Jay Cutler QB - CHI
Through two games, the Bears' quarterback is tied with Peyton Manning with six touchdown passes so far and is a top three fantasy signal-caller. Half of his scoring tosses came last Sunday night against the 49ers when Cutler hooked up with Brandon Marshall three times in the game. Surrounded by talented offensive weapons, Cutler is poised for a big fantasy campaign in 2014.
