Injury Info: Denver Broncos top WR Demaryius Thomas was held out of Saturday’s preseason game as well as Monday’s practice with a groin injury. Although this sounds precautionary, groin injuries have a tendency to linger if not allowed to fully heal. Groin injuries often take about 2-4 weeks to fully heal. The good news is that the Broncos have a good 16 days (from Saturday’s preseason game) until they face off against the Chargers on Monday Night Football. A typical grade-one groin strain takes about 2 weeks to recover, if allowed to properly heal combined with appropriate rehab. If you are drafting this week, I do not expect this injury to change his draft position much, but overall I am not personally very high on Thomas, and do not plan on drafting him in any of my leagues, despite being a reliable top WR for several years now. This groin injury will actually further reinforce the fact that I am staying away from him. Right now I am not overly concerned with Thomas’ groin injury, but if isn’t close 100% health by Week 1, then I may become increasingly concerned.
Injury Affects: Emmanuel Sanders, Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor, Virgil Green, AJ Derby
Current draft position: PPR: 3rd round, 8th pick, WR16. Standard: 3rd round, 12th pick, WR16
Draft instead: Should not impact draft position

NFL Week 8 Injury Review
As week eight comes to a close, unfortunately we saw several big-name players again go down with injury. The San Francisco 49ers continue to be ravaged by injury, as they likely lost both George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the season. Kittle fractured a bone in his foot, and Garoppolo re-injured his high ankle sprain. Add in Tevin Coleman, who was recently activated off IR due to a knee injury, re-injured the same knee and is awaiting additional imaging.
