Fantasy Impact: More bad news for Thomas owners. Our experts expected regression from Thomas, and that will certainly be the case if he misses a quarter or more of the fantasy season. Hopefully those that have already drafted him have a viable backup.

He had already been ruled out of the first three games but this puts the focus on how Thomas's hand responds. He is slated for a decent amount of usage but needs to get healthy and stay well-conditioned for a return in Week 4. (Source: Ryan O'Halloran on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas's absence means a big boost for Allen Robinson and a bump for Allen Hurns. Owners can only hope that Thomas returns Week 4 and rewards them for their loyalty and patience.

He's athletic and a terror in the red-zone...as a Bronco. In Jax? No clue...hand injury also hurts his season long value a bit

Peyton to Bortles an obvious nosedive at quarterback. Will miss the first four weeks of the season.
Coach Esser | Sep 2nd
The injury kills his value and the move to Jacksonville already had him on life support watch. Not a bad stash if you have deep benches.

His value is going to take a hit just going to an offense that doesn't move efficiently. He'll get more looks but they won't be coming from Peyton anymore.

Expecting 500 plus yards and 5 TDs with more upside for TDs. He is a solid grab in TD only leagues.
