Week 15 Injury Report: Monday

by Daniel Hall

Week 15 Initial Injury report


Melvin Gordon RB San Diego Chargers: Gordon was just 3 yards short of 1000 when he was hurt in the first quarter recovering a Phillip Rivers fumble. Gordon has had a breakout year as he has not had to share the backfield with veteran Danny Woodhead this year. Gordon has been a top 5 RB and is a huge loss to any fantasy owner at this pivotal point of the season. No doubt that if you made it out of this week Gordon will be tough to replace next week if he is unable to go.

Ryan Tannehill QB Miami Dolphins: The good news here is that everyone is using the word sprain and not the word tear. Listen I get it. Tannehill is not a top performer usually in fantasy and this year he was off to another slow start, but as the season has gone along he has gotten better. It seems like every other week he pops up as a top 5 QB. If you are relying on Tannehill down the stretch, it’s time to look at other options for your championship run. 

Matt Forte RB New York Jets: Matt Forte has had a resurgent year and was a  RB1 so far this year. He was a top ten RB in fantasy scoring coming into this week before feeling a “cracking and popping” in his knee. If there is any tear in Forte’s knee, then his season would be done. Bilal Powell who took over for Forte in that game was second only to Le’veon Bell in Fantasy points for a RB, but he is probably not available on your waiver wire. Look to our waiver adds on Tuesday to find a formidable replacement for your playoff run.

Aaron Rogers QB Green Bay Packers: Rogers was pulled late when the game was well in hand with a Calf injury. He was apparently compensating for the hamstring injury that he was trying to play through. Monitor his status as the week rolls along. I would be shocked if he missed a game with the way the Pack need to finish to make the playoffs.
