Chris Ivory, RB, Buffalo Bills
LeSean McCoy hasn’t done much through two games, with 89 total yards as the Bills have been easily beaten in each contest. But he also came out of Week 2 with a rib injury, which was eventually reported not be a fracture of any kind but ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported McCoy has cracked rib cartilage and is questionable for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Ivory scored a rushing touchdown and one catch for 30 yards against the Chargers in Week 2. He will be in line for something of a lead role in McCoy’s stead, with Marcus Murphy entering the mix as part of some kind of committee.
In any games McCoy misses with this rib issue, Ivory would have some fantasy relevance. The upside is not great, but McCoy owners have to consider putting in a claim for Ivory this week.
