FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 16 ISSUES: SPROLES, RIDDICK, MONCRIEF ALL OUT OR VERY DOUBTFUL

Once again the injury news is of chief importance with the fantasy football semifinals already underway starting Thursday night.  With that said, here are some early Friday news items that surely have a decent impact on this week's games.

-The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out RB Darren Sproles due to the concussion he suffered last Sunday on that cheat shot hit while fielding a punt against the Washington Redskins.  With Sproles out, Ryan Mathews is set for a huge workload against the Baltimore Ravens.  In terms of the backup, count on Kenjon Barner getting a few carries but nothing to make him fantasy football relevant.

-Theo Riddick didn't practice on Friday which is a very bad sign for his availability Sunday against the New York Giants.  With Riddick remaining hobbled with a sore wrist, Dwayne Washington will get the majority of carries in the rain against a tough Giants D.  Washington has very little fantasy football value this week.

-Donte Moncrief just can't kick the injury bug this season and now he is expected to sit out Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings with a hamstring injury.  That means the disappointing Philip Dorsett will get another chance to show he is not a big first round bust but he should not be added to your roster.
