COACHING MOVES - WEEK 9 INJURY UPDATE

As we prepare you for your Week 9 fantasy matchups, there are a ton of injuries to monitor through the weekend. Some news is good, and some not so good, but either way you need to be on top of your players' status as game time approaches on Sunday morning in order to set the best lineup possible. Here are some of this week's key injuries to note. And don't forget to double check injury status on Sunday morning!

COACHES' CRIB NOTES

• T.Y. Hilton is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a foot injury. He hasn't practiced all week which is not a good sign for his status, and even if he does play, the matchup isn't a good one. If Hilton's out Donte Moncrief will see more looks, but the Denver pass defense is too good to expect much from any Colts pass-catcher.

• DeSean Jackson may make his return this week after missing the last eight weeks with a hamstring injury. Washington will need him against the Patriots, but fantasy owners should wait a week to see how his chemistry with Cousins has developed before slotting him into their lineups.

• AS expected, Matt Forte has officially been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Chargers, which means rookie Jeremy Langford should see a feature-back amount of volume out of the Bears backfield.

• Austin Seferian-Jenkins is slated to return this week after suffering a shoulder in Week 2. With Vincent Jackson likely out again, ASJ should see a high volume of targets against a horrible Giants pass defense. He's got TE1 upside.

• Carlos Hyde will likely miss his second straight game as he deals with a foot injury. The 49ers don't even know who their starting running back is going to be, so this is a situation that fantasy owners should avoid at all costs.

• Ronnie Hillman is listed as questionable against the Colts. He suffered a thigh injury last week, but was able to return to the game, so his questionable tag is a bit concerning. The injury may be more severe than we know, but there's really no way to tell. Obviously C.J. Anderson will get more work if Hillman sits.

• Kendall Wright will be out this week with a knee injury. Wright's absence will lead to more targets for tight end Delanie Walker and possibly even rookie wideout Dorial Green-Beckham. The Titans pass-catchers have a good matchup but are extremely hard to predict when it comes to fantasy production.

• Ryan Fitzpatrick is slated to start for the Jets despite torn ligaments in the thumb on his non-throwing hand. His presence raises the value of those around him, so Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker should be started too.
