Danny Woodhead injury

Injured | Adrian Peterson | RB | Minnesota Vikings

Peterson has a torn miniscus And should be out at least one week, if not more.

Don't pickup - Look for Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon to split the workload. Considering AP has had terrible production so far this season, I wouldn't expect much better from either of these two. Not to mention the Vikings next two opponents are Carolina and NY Giants. Hopefully you have better options already on your bench.

Injured | Doug Martin | RB | Tampa Bay Bucanneers

Martin said he suffered a "slight tweak" of his hamstring in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals. He is getting an MRI today, which suggests the team is worried it could be something more. Best case scenario, Martin is definitely questionable for this week against the Rams.
Pickup - Charles Sims needs to be owned in all leagues. The Bucs face some tough defenses the next 3 weeks, so even if Martin is out more multiple weeks, don't expect Sims to carry your team to victory. But Sims can be a solid flex player.

Injured | Danny Woodhead | RB | San Diego Chargers

The Chargers' injury woes continue with Woodhead out for the year with an ACL tear.

Pickup - Dexter McCluster has just signed with the Chargers to take on the role of the pass-catching back. McCluster won't fill Woodhead's role 100%, especially since he is just now joing the team and learning the playbook.Temper expectations in standard leagues but should be a nice pickup in PPR leagues.

Injured | Arian Foster | RB | Miami Dolphins

Foster left week 2 with a groin injury

Don't pickup - Foster left the game after just 3 carries and Jay Ajayi could not capitalize. In fact, he promptly fumbled the ball. Even though the Dolphins get a juicy matchup against the browns, expect a RBBC with Ajayi, Damien Williams, and Kenyan Drake. Don't expect to see any of these three to be fantasy relevent in any format.
