Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Ben Roethlisberger is “on track” to start Sunday

This fuckin’ guy. Ben Roethlisberger tore his meniscus and will most likely start on Sunday after sitting out just 21 days. Just a reminder, he was supposed to miss 3-6 weeks — with most sitting out 6-plus weeks with the same injury. This news catapulted Antonio Brown back to the WR1 spot and Le’Veon Bell to our RB2 spot. Landry Jones wasn’t awful against the Patriots, but fantasy life is just better for everyone with Big Ben under center.

It’s always a good sign when a player talks to the media. Hopefully LeSean McCoy wasn’t forced out there today, but it’s good to hear that he felt good at practice and was able to run routes. With the Bills playing on Monday night in Seattle, I personally would look for a safer option (not Mike Gillislee). As a owner of Shady in a couple of leagues, it would make me more comfortable if he sat out Monday and then had the bye week to recover, but we’ll see. Either way, McCoy should be back for the stretch run, just in time to make a fantasy playoff push/run.

The Titans are limiting DeMarco Murray‘s reps in practice, but he’s on track to start against the Chargers on Sunday. Unfortunately we will not see Derrick Henry in the starting role just yet, but hopefully (unless you’re a Murray owner) this toe injury is just the first of many cracks in Murray’s armor. Hold onto Henry, because he’s about to get his chance.

Quick Hits:

  • Jerick McKinnon (ankle) practiced today and is on track to play Sunday
  • Tyler Lockett (PCL) is almost back to full speed and could give Russell Wilson a much-needed deep threat
  • Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) returned to practice and is 50-50 to play on Sunday
  • Delanie Walker (groin) was added to the practice report, meaning he tweaked something at practice; this will be something to monitor for Friday
  • Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) guarantees he will start on Sunday
  • James Starks and Jared Cook both returned to Packers practice, but neither will play Sunday
