Fantasy Injury Updates: Kerryon Johnson, Jordan Howard, Damien Williams impact Week 16 start ’em, sit ’em calls

first_imgDamien Williams injury newsWilliams missed Sunday’s game as he continues to recover from a ribs injury, but he also had “illness” added next to his name on the injury report after it looked like he might make it back from the ribs issue. Williams could make it back for Week 16 when the Chiefs play the Bears on Sunday Night Football.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPIf the illness was indeed the bigger issue by Sunday, we should know based on Williams’ early-week practice reports. If he’s on the field Wednesday, he’ll be looking good to play against Chicago. With Akiem Hicks back for the Bears, Williams is a low-end RB2 at best. If Williams is out, no KC back is a good play in a crowded backfield. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Kerryon Johnson playing Week 16?Johnson (knee) confirmed to reporters Friday that he’s been setback-free since returning to practice about two weeks ago. MLive.com also reported that it “sure sounds like” Johnson will be activated from IR when eligible in Week 16. Johnson’s Sunday usage could depend on the status of Bo Scarbrough, who was a game-time decision Sunday before missing out with a ribs injury.It’s looking like the Wes Hills show will be a one-week appearance, as at least one if not both of Johnson and Scarbrough should be back for Week 16. Johnson’s the preferred play in a not-great matchup against Denver, assuming he’s activated. When considering the risk of Johnson after a long absence, you can probably play him as a FLEX.WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endJordan Howard injury updateEagles head coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Howard (shoulder) is making progress and that he couldn’t rule him out for Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. ET against the Cowboys. Howard’s shoulder injury has kept him out much longer than expected, and there’s still been no indication of him being cleared for contact.MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsHoward would just complicate things at this point after Miles Sanders has made the Philadelphia backfield mostly his own. The Cowboys have a solid run defense, so the only way we’d feel comfortable about an Eagles back this week is if Howard is again out and Sanders gets most of the work ahead of Boston Scott.MORE WEEK 16: Top waiver pickups Kerryon Johnson’s possible return from Injured Reserve throws a new name into the start ’em, sit ’em hat for fantasy championship games in Week 16. It could be complicated if Bo Scarbrough is back active, though. And fantasy owners are possibly still wondering about Jordan Howard and Damien Williams, whose injuries have kept them out longer than initially anticipated.

Rock Crusher, 36, Wants Trade Mechanized

first_imgAbraham Jarque, 36, who lives in the Zinnah Hill Community, where he ekes a living from rock-crushing, has appealed to government to create job opportunities for many other young people by introducing mechanized rock-crushing.Mr. Jarque has been in the rock crushing business for the past 10 years. He told the Daily Observer yesterday at his rock-crushing site on the GSA Road that if government should bring in rock-crushing machines, many of the youth, who he said are loitering for no reason, would at least gain employment. According to him, crushing rocks is a difficult work, which he thinks should be done by rock-crushing machines instead of doing so with human hands.With that belief, Mr. Jarque has called on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to encourage investors who would venture into rock-crushing through which many hard-working Liberians will find work. Mr. Jarque added that crushing rocks was not part of his plans while growing up as a youth, “but since I now find myself doing the trade, all I ask is for the government to introduce mechanized rock-crushing to attract other lazy and unwilling youth to work the trade.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
