Jacoby Ford Sidelined With Hamstring
It looks like Jacoby Ford will be questionable for week two after injuring his hamstring against the Broncos.
Fantasy Outlook: Keep Ford on your bench, but he’s worth holding onto, because the Raiders are going to make him their No.1 receiver. If you watched the first half of their game against the Broncos, it was clear that Hue Jackson wants to get him the football and is willing to move him around in creative ways to get the football in his hands.

Hakeem Nicks Not Practicing
After injuring his knee (bone bruise) against the Redskins, Hakeem Nicks is unlikely to practice this week, and will likely be doubtful to play on Monday.
Fantasy Outlook: As Giants’ beat-writer Ohm Youngmisuk points out in a recent article, Dominik Hixon is likely to be the teams’ starter opposite Mario Manningham, if Nicks should miss time. Youngmisuk also threw in Victor Cruz as a possible option to start, but it’s probably likely he will stay as the teams No.3 option in the slot. Hopefully, we will see Nicks back in practice next week, as his knee aliment is not expected to be serious and only a bone bruise.

Chris Johnson Not In Synch With O-Line
While the Titans offensive line is coming under fire for their week one performance, Coach Mike Munchak said that Chris Johnson has to take some of the blame for being out of synch with them.
Fantasy Outlook: I recommend you read the quick write-up John Glennon has on this situation, as it’s worth understanding what Munchak has to say about the situation. As long as Johnson is healthy, he should at least put up the numbers he had a year ago, with a higher reception total. Until Johnson gets in synch with his linemen, he will struggle, and I expect that to continue against the Ravens this week.
As I pointed out in our weekly start’em – sit’em, if you have respectable depth, it worth considering placing Johnson on your bench this week. Consider him a must start week three against the Broncos.
