Fantasy Injury Updates: Rob Gronkowski, Sony Michel, Allen Robinson impacting Week 10 fantasy rankings

first_imgWEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAllen Robinson injury newsRobinson was out for the second-straight game last week, as a groin injury prevented him from suiting up against the Bills. However, it’s notable that he did log a limited practice last Friday, so he is on the right track as he tries to return from the injury.If Robinson can improve in practice and get on the field earlier this week, he should have a chance to suit up against the Lions. The first practice report on Wednesday should help clarify his status a bit more, and we’ll have updates on that throughout the week. If Robinson misses more time, Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel, and Tarik Cohen will continue to see plenty of targets in the Bears offense. Week 10 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs Sony Michel playing in Week 10?Michel (knee) has been absent for the Patriots’ last two contests, but he was able to practice last week before ultimately being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He ended up sitting out, but this week, his prognosis appears to be solid.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Michel is expected to return to action against the Titans in Week 10. He just needs to avoid suffering any setbacks in practice. He’ll need to be monitored in practice this week, but he is definitely trending in the right direction.With Michel returning, James White will see a slight downgrade solely because his volume will go down a bit. Still, he’ll be a really good RB2 (RB1 in PPR formats) and could outproduce Michel if the Patriots ease him back into action, so he belongs in starting lineups.The biggest negative fantasy impact from this injury is to Cordarrelle Patterson, who likely won’t see more than a couple of carries per game moving forward. He had been serving as the complement to White with Michel out, but now he’ll see less action on offense. He’s still worth stashing as a handcuff (who’s only eligible at WR because, again, we’re talking about the Patriots here), but until we see what his role in the backfield is, he should be left on fantasy benches.MORE WEEK 10: Top waiver wire pickups | RB handcuff chartRob Gronkowski injury updateAnother year, another injury to Gronk. For two of the past three weeks, Gronkowski has sat out with a back issue that flared up in practice. Moving forward, his status is week-to-week, according to WEEI’s Ryan Hannable (via Adam Schefter), and that means that he could be out for Week 10.With the Patriots’ bye approaching in Week 11, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the team elect to sit Gronk this week as a precaution. After all, Gronk has struggled with injuries in the past, so why would they risk his health as they prepare for a postseason run? They’ve won six straight games anyway, so it seems possible — if not, probable — that Gronk could get another week off just to buy him some extra rest going into the bye.If Gronk is out, the team’s tight end group won’t produce a viable fantasy target. Instead, guys like Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman, and James White will get stock-ups as they get more opportunities to catch passes. If you have Gronk on your fantasy roster, check out our Week 10 TE rankings for the best streaming options available. There are a couple of big-time Patriots players that should soon return from injuries. Sony Michel and Rob Gronkowski both have a chance to playing against the Titans in Week 10, but a looming bye week could cause the Pats to play it a bit safe. (Classic Pats, right?) In addition to that duo, Bears receiver Allen Robinson is attempting to return from a groin injury that has kept him out of action in each of the past two weeks. These injury issues could necessitate moves on the waiver wire for fantasy football owners, and it could also have an impact on fantasy rankings and start ’em, sit ’em decisions.As the week goes along, we’ll provide you with more injury updates.

Myrie responds to KC coaching rumours

first_imgKingston College (KC) principal Dave Myrie up to yesterday morning had not received any official resignation from the reportedly departing Neil Harrison, who is expected to be confirmed soon as the new track and field head coach at Jamaica College.However, Myrie was also quick to deny rumours that St Jago’s male team coach, Rahnsomn Edwards, who guided the St Catherine-based school to fourth place at the 2018 ISSA GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, would be taking over from Harrison, who he admitted, is likely to leave the North Street institution ahead of the new term.Edwards, he explained, only applied for a physical education teacher position and has not been contracted to coach the school’s track and field team.He did, however, admit that Edwards could play a role in the future.”Mr Rahnsomn Edwards applied for a job as PE teacher at Kingston College based on an ad we put in The Gleaner,” Myrie insisted.”Obviously he is involved in track and field, and if wants to be part of the programme, then he will be involved. But that’s not why he came to Kingston College; he sent an application for a PE teacher post,” he further explained. “He applied for a job as a PE teacher, because we have a PE vacancy. He was interviewed along with others as a PE teacher, not as a coach.”Now if he wants to be part of the coaching fraternity and if he is on staff, then there is no issue. But he will come on board, if he does, as a PE teacher,” said Myrie.Meanwhile, the KC principal noted that he has received nothing official from Harrison concerning a departure.”I have not received a resignation from him (Harrison) yet, but from all indications, he will be going,” said Myrie, when contacted yesterday morning.’No letter yet'”Mr Harrison indicated he will be moving to Jamaica College, but he needs to follow that up with a formal letter. We cannot act on verbal,” said Myrie, who also stated that they will not rush to appoint a new coach.”We are not looking for anybody. I am not rushing that, I am not looking for any head coach.We are working with the structure we have until we find a head coach. Mr Harrison is also head of the Physical Education Department, so we await his formal letter and then we will take it from there,” he said.However, according to sources close to the Kingston College track and field team, Edwards is being recruited to take over the programme and will also directly coach 400 metres, 800 metres and hurdles.Checks with persons close to the St Jago programme also revealed that Edwards, who has received offers from multiple schools, has already handed in his resignation to St Jago, missed several meetings, and has sought [email protected]last_img read more
