FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY FALLOUT: DISASTER FOR A.J. GREEN AND HIS OWNERS AS HE SUFFERS TORN HAMSTRING

Week 11 was one of those disaster injury weeks when it came to big name players as LeSean McCoy, Zach Miller, and A.J. Green all went down with various maladies.  Green's was the worst so far as the Cincinnati Bengals ace wideout suffered a torn hamstring early in the team's loss to the Buffalo Bills, an injury so severe that he ha to be carted off the field.  Thus the diagnosis of the tear was no shock and the fallout is big for Green's fantasy football owners as he very well could be done for 2016.  At the very least, Green should be out for the remainder of the fantasy football season which goes through Week 16 and so his top five wideout numbers this year leave a gigantic hole in his owners' lineups.  Flat out, a loss like Green can't be made up and his injury is the type that sinks seasons.  The fallout in terms of who picks up the slack centers of Tyler Boyd and tight end Tyler Eifert.  Eifert will get a ridiculous amount of throws from QB Andy Dalton going forward and Boyd should be the top waiver add this week on his opportunity alone.  As far as Green is concerned, hold him for another day to see if he is in fact out for the year but we likely have seen the last of him until 2017.
