My Circle of Life: Revival, and Death, of the Minnesota Vikings?

Welcome to Edition III of My Circle of Life. This week, we dive into more injuries across the league. The 2016 NFL has been full of them, and they are affecting even some of the top teams. Also, I review my Week 2 fantasy team and look ahead to Week 3.

Injuries Crippling Chargers’ Offensive Potential

Keenan Allen has never played a full season in his four-year career. He set a career-high in receptions (77) and targets (121) in 2014 in 14 games played. In 2015, in eight games played, he nearly broke his high in receptions (67) with just 89 targets.

New England’s Rotating Door

I will be extra short on this, but Jimmy Garoppolo looks damn good. If his shoulder injury causes him to miss the remaining two weeks before Tom Brady’s return and the Patriots successfully plug in rookie Jacoby Brissett, just…wow.
