Deji Karim To Backup MJD | FF Brainwave Report
Jennings Done For The Season, Deji Karim Likely To Backup MJD
The Jaguars have officially placed running back Rashad Jennings on injured reserve, and he is now lost for the season.
Fantasy Impact – Those of you that have paid attention to my thoughts on Maurice Jones-Drew know I believe he’s unlikely to hold up for the season. At this time, the next running back on the depth chart is second year back Deji Karim, who’s had a respectable preseason. Look to Karim as a must have off the waiver wire in deep leagues.

Chester Taylor Released
The Bears have decided to cut ties with Chester Taylor after one season.
Fantasy Impact – In reality, Taylor was likely done with the Bears when the team signed Marion Barber when the lockout ended. Taylor was a disappointment last year, and the Bears will now go with Matt Forte and Barber as the main options on the ground.
News Updated – Taylor has since been signed by the Cardinals

Tony Moeaki Placed On Injured Reserve
The Chiefs placed second year tight end Tony Moeaki on injured reserve with a bump knee.
Fantasy Impact – Another strike against Matt Cassel’s odds of being a capable starting fantasy quarterback in deep leagues. Dwayne Bowe stands to benefit as Cassel will likely look to his star receiver, as he seems uncomfortable with his new passing targets.

Patriots Release SS Brandon Meriweather
It seems like a yearly tradition that the Patriots make an unexpected release or trade on the first weeked of September and this time it’s two time Pro Bowl safety Brandon Meriweather.
Fantasy Impact – Meriweather will go to another team but his off the field issues, were the likely reason why this impact player is gone from New England. We will have to wait and see where Meriweather lands before we know the IDP impact.
News Update – Meriweather has since been signed by the Bears.
