R Shell (WVU)

Rushel Shell dealing with hand injury, should play vs. OU

West Virginia RB Rushel Shell injured his hand in the win over Maryland.  The early reports are that the injury is not serious, and he should play on Saturday vs. Oklahoma.



Fantasy Spin:

Shell had a breakout performance against Maryland, planting himself firmly on the fantasy map.  Let's hope the reports are accurate and this injury is nothing to worry about.

Keeton out, Garretson in at QB for Utah State

Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton reinjured his surgically repaired knee on Saturday and is not expected to play in this week's game against Arkansas State.  Darell Garretson will get the start in his place.



Fantasy Spin:

Garretson isn't the dual threat that Keeton is (when healthy).  Let's see how he does against Arkansas State before considering him in fantasy circles.

Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) is probable for Rice game

Old Dominion QB Taylor Heinicke injured his shoulder in Saturday's game, but early reports are that he is expected to play against Rice on Saturday.



Fantasy Spin:

Monitor this one throughout the week.  Heinicke had a stinker last week and perhaps this injury had a hand in it.

T.J. Yeldon nursing a hamstring injury

Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon is dealing with what is being considered a 'minor' hamstring injury sustained in Saturday's game vs. Southern Miss.  Head coach Nick Saban expects him to practice this week and play against Florida on Saturday.



Fantasy Spin:

Watch the practice reports this week to ensure Yeldon is participating.  It's obviously a big game vs. the Gators, and if the injury is indeed minor as they are reporting, he'll play.

Kareem Hunt is considered probable for Ball State game

Toledo RB Kareem Hunt is expected to play in Saturday's game against Ball State.  He is dealing with an undisclosed injury.



Fantasy Spin:

There has been very little news on this one, other than his head coach saying he will be ready for the game.  Stay tuned on this one as the week progresses.

Jamal Robinson could miss 4 or 5 weeks with knee injury

UL-Lafayette WR Jamal Robinson is expected to miss 4 or 5 weeks with an undisclosed knee injury.

“He will be back,” coach Mark Hudspeth said after the game. “I’d say it’d be anywhere between four and five weeks. He will be back. That was a decision we made late Friday, and hopefully he’ll come back better than ever.”



Fantasy Spin:

Looks like a mid to late October return for Mr. Robinson.

Speedy Noil leaves game with undisclosed injury

Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil left Saturday's game with Rice due to an undisclosed injury.  When asked about the injury, head coach Kevin Sumlin said "We'll see."



Fantasy Spin:

Thanks for the details there, coach.  

We'll all have to stay tuned on this one.

UAB RB Jordan Howard exited early with eye injury

UAB RB Jordan Howard left Saturday's game vs. Alabama A&M in the first quarter with an eye injury.  Per AL.com:

Howard, who suffered a scratch above his eye, finished the game with 12 yards on five carries before leaving the game in the first quarter. Blazers head coach Bill Clark expects him to return for the team's next game against Florida International Sept. 27. 



Fantasy Spin:

Howard could have been in for a monster day had it not been for the injury.  Backup D.J. Vinson came in and rushed for 5 TDs while tallying up 106 yards.

K Olsen (MIAF)

Miami QB Kevin Olsen arrested for DUI and stolen license

Miami Hurricanes QB Kevin Olsen was arrested over the weekend for DUI and possession of stolen drivers license.



Fantasy Spin:

Hasn't been a stellar 2014 for the brother of former Cane tight end standout Greg Olsen.

Auburn optimistic that Sammy Coates will play Thursday

Auburn WR Sammy Coates could return to the field against Kansas State on Thursday night.  He missed the San Jose State game with an apparent knee injury.



Fantasy Spin:

With the emergence of JUCO transfer D'haquille Williams, Coates' fantasy value has taken a hit.

Keith Ford out 2-3 weeks with fractured foot

Oklahoma RB Keith Ford is expected to be sidelined 2-3 weeks with a fractured foot.



Fantasy Spin:

Look for Samaje Perine and Alex Ross to carry the load in his absence.  Perine posted a 9-67-0 statline vs. Tennessee on Saturday, while Ross struggled with a 5-6-0.

Report: Taylor Kelly expected to miss 1-2 games

Arizona State QB Taylor Kelly's foot injury is likely to keep him sidelined for at least one game.  From the USAToday:
 

Taylor Kelly's right foot injury will keep him out of Arizona State's Sept. 25 showdown against UCLA, but the senior quarterback could return sooner than expected.

According to a a person with the program who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Kelly has a chance to play Oct. 4 at USC. If not USC, the Sun Devils expect their third-year quarterback on the field for the Oct. 18 home game against Stanford.



Fantasy Spin:

Kelly's absence under center could have big ramifications on fantasy studs D.J. Foster and Jaelen Strong.  Sophomore Mark Bercovici will likely get the start while Kelly is out.

Thomas Rawls arrested on three felony warrants

Central Michigan's Thomas Rawls was arrested on three felony warrants from an incident last April.  He alledgedly stole a purse and several credit cards at a casino.  Per the Morning Sun:

Rawls is named in an arrest warrant for three felonies, each punishable by up to four years in prison and a $5,000 fine. They include: Larceny for stealing a purse belonging to a 62-year-old casino patron; possession of stolen credit cards; and stealing credit cards, including a Visa card and three store credit cards.



Fantasy Spin:

Rawls is suspended "indefinitely" while the investigation is ongoing.  Saylor Lavallii would likely see most of the work in Rawls's absence, but his team-leading 4-15-0 statline from Saturday was not exactly impressive.

Keith Ford injured in second half, status unknown

Oklahoma RB Keith Ford left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury.  Head coach Bob Stoops said after the game that he wasn't sure of his status moving forward.



Fantasy Spin:

The fantasy value of Alex Ross and Samaje Perine would rise significantly if Ford is out for any amount of time.  Stay tuned.
