Assumes MJD won't play.

80 YFS on sore foot, but NYG run D stout vs DET - FF = 80 YFS

If MJD can't start for week 2 because of his hand injury, McFadden will get a chance to carry the load. Don't be surprised to see more Marcel Reece in this one.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
With MJD out, McFadden figures to get the bulk of the work (ahead of Latavius Murray) this week against the Texans but remains an unappealing fantasy option.
  
John Halpin
Fox Sports
Might change this ranking depending on health updates.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Walking in a boot this week is not a great sign, if you have other options you may want to consider them.
Looks like MJD will be out this week.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ellington looks like he can play through his foot injury and will have low RB2 value against a struggling Giants D.
