Fantasy Injury Updates: A.J. Green, Sammy Watkins, more WRs among key Week 11 active/inactives

first_imgWeek 11 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs A.J. Green playing Week 11?UPDATE: Green is officially OUTGreen hasn’t practiced since injuring his toe injury late in Week 8, and it has been expected all along that he would miss multiple games and not return until December. But Marvin Lewis said early this week he hoped Green could play on Sunday against Baltimore, and the Bengals stopped short of officially listing him as “out”, instead opting for slightly less ominous (but not really) “doubtful”.It would be a mild shock if Green suits up, and even if he does, it’sunlikely he’s anything more than a part-time player/decoy. Because this is a key divisional matchup, it’s more likely Lewis is just trying to gain whatever edge he can by making the Ravens at least think about the possibility Green will play. As it stands, fantasy owners shouldn’t consider Green for their lineups, and instead expect Tyler Boyd and John Ross (assuming he plays) to see the bulk of the targets.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Sammy Watkins playing Monday night?Watkins (foot) failed to practice this week, making it unlikely he’ll suit up against the Rams. Because this is a Monday night game, fantasy owners shouldn’t have Watkins in their lineups unless they have a backup from that game (Josh Reynolds? Chris Conley?). Even then, it’s a huge risk, as they can likely find a better option from the Sunday games.If Watkins does play and you have a spot open, he’s worth starting given the shootout potential of that game, but, again, you’re better served going with someone else.WEEK 11 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsJohn Ross injury updateUPDATE: Ross is officially ACTIVEAfter getting in limited practice sessions throughout the week, it seems likely that the “questionable” Ross (groin) will play against the Ravens.Ross hasn’t done much during another injury-plagued season, but he did have six targets and a TD last week, and when these teams met in Week 2, then-WR2 Tyler Boyd had 91 yards and a score. Of course, Jimmy Smith didn’t play in that game, A.J. Green did, and it was in Cincinnati, but Ross’s big-play ability still gives him some upside as a FLEX.  ​WEEK 11 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsKeke Coutee injury newsUPDATE: Coutee is officially ACTIVECoutee (hamstring) looks like a true game-time decision against the Redskins after getting in limited practices this week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported late Saturday that Coutee is expected to play.Because the rookie receiver figures to be less than 100 percent and is yet to play with Demaryius Thomas, it’s tough to know what to expect from him. It’s best to keep him on your bench until we see if he and Thomas can co-exist.MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup Builder Fantasy football owners are getting off easy when it comes to checking for injury updates in Week 11. No key QBs, RBs, or TEs are “questionable”, and most of the big-name WRs who looked like worries early in the week (mainly Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs) will be active. Marvin Jones, Jordy Nelson, and Jamison Crowder have already been officially ruled “out”, and A.J. Green is “doubtful”, which means he’ll almost certainly be inactive. The only wide receivers who will be game-time decisions and giving you start ’em, sit ’em headaches are Sammy Watkins, who plays on Monday night, Keke Coutee, John Ross, and Chris Godwin. How will we ever survive?Of course, in a six-team bye week, every player counts, so we’ll continue updating this post throughout the day with the official news. For more on Joe Flacco, Lamar Jackson, and the Ravens QB situation, check here, and for Week 11 weather updates, go here. Follow us on Twitter (@SN_Fantasy) for more fantasy advice and updates. Is Chris Godwin playing in Week 11?UPDATE: Godwin is officially ACTIVEGodwin (ankle) managed a full practice on Friday and seems almost certain to suit up against the Giants.He’s coming off his first 100-yard performance of the season, though he hasn’t scored since Week 6. In Tampa’s offense, you never know which receiver will have a good game, but Godwin has proven he has WR3 upside most weeks. This is a tough matchup on paper, but Godwin should be out there if you need him.last_img read more

Murder trial expert admitserror

first_imgTORRANCE: Measurement of stab wound in ’84 KFC case was likely wrong, pathologist says. By Denise Nix STAFF WRITER A knife found with William Marshall about 10 days after the slaying of his former co-worker at a Torrance fast-food restaurant could be the murder weapon, a forensic pathologist testified Monday. However, Dr. Margaret Greenwald acknowledged she likely made a mistake 23 years ago when she measured the depth of a stab wound in Robin Hoynes’ back. Marshall, 46, is accused of stabbing Hoynes, 21, during the robbery at a Kentucky Fried Chicken where he had worked as an assistant manager until his termination several days before the Oct. 30, 1984, killing. Police had Marshall under surveillance in the days following the fatal attack, and stopped him Nov. 10, 1984, after he was seen casing a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in Fountain Valley. Inside the car he was driving in was a bag containing a boning knife with a blade that measures nearly 6inches long. Greenwald testified Monday that she probably erred when she measured one of two stab wounds in Hoynes’ back at 9 inches deep. Now chief medical examiner for the state of Maine, Greenwald said Hoynes’ autopsy was only the third stabbing exam she had done. She said a 9-inch-deep stab wound, especially in someone as slender as Hoynes, is very uncommon. Now that she has conducted hundreds of autopsies, Greenwald said she has the experience to know that there was likely some error in her measuring techniques. Marshall’s attorney, Simon Aval, wants the jury to believe that the boning knife found with his client could not have killed Hoynes, and asked Greenwald questions to suggest that the prosecution influenced her analysis of the wound depth. Greenwald denied the suggestion, adding that would be “improper.” Like many witnesses in the ongoing Torrance Superior Court trial, Greenwald was contacted around 2005 about the case that had gone cold until officers reopened it. Marshall, who became a state Department of Forestry captain, is on trial on charges of killing Hoynes during a robbery of the restaurant that was located on Palos Verdes Boulevard near Pacific Coast Highway. He faces life in prison without parole if convicted. Answering questions from Deputy District Attorney John Lewin, Greenwald testified that Hoynes had two stab wounds to her back – one fatal that hit her heart and a lung, and one possibly fatal wound that cut her liver. “I think that she was probably not seeing the attack come at her, so it was from behind,” Greenwald said. Her analysis is based on the wounds and the lack of any defensive injuries to Hoynes’ arms and hands, she said. Lewin is expected to argue that Greenwald’s analysis shows Marshall attacked Hoynes and then tried to break into the restaurant’s safe. Hoynes also had two slash wounds on her face and neck that were superficial, Greenwald said. She surmised those wounds occurred within moments of Hoynes’ death, based on the amount of bleeding. That evidence is expected to be corroborated later in the trial when Marshall’s former girlfriend testifies about his purported confession, in which he said he slashed Hoynes’ throat to keep her from talking, believing she was still alive.
