2022 Fantasy Football Injury Impact

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 12 Injury Impact article.

Coming into the week, fantasy players were without Justin Fields, Ja'Marr Chase, Joe Mixon, and Leonard Fournette. There were many other players not able to suit up in Week 12.

Once again, the NFL was bonkers this week.

We saw some upsets (Jags over Ravens and Browns over Buccaneers), a "super bowl" favorite (BIlls) getting taken to the wire by the Lions, and multiple injuries occurred.

In this article, I will be talking about the impact of the injuries that went down in Week 12. There were a couple of season-ending injuries and injuries you MUST monitor.

Darnell Mooney, WR, Chicago Bears (Ankle)

Darnell Mooney's (0/0-0) season is over. He will be getting surgery to repair torn ligaments.

With this injury, there should be a handful of targets available. Chase Claypool (5/2-51), Byron Pringle (2/2-12-1), and mainly Cole Kmet (6/3-27) will get the targets moving forward. I also expect the Bears to rely heavily on David Montgomery (14-79; 4/3-34) for the rest of the year. Get him in your lineups.

For most of the year(other than Fields and Monty), we were staying away from Bears position players anyways (Mooney included), so I suggest leaving these position players (Claypool, Pringle) on the waiver wire.

Allen Robinson, WR, Los Angeles Rams (Foot Surgery)

Allen Robinson's disappointing season will end with foot surgery.

This Rams team is a disaster. Matthew Stafford could miss the rest of the season, so be on the lookout for that. They went from being a juggernaut offense in 2021 to a team that you must pick up the defense facing them in 2022. What a world we live in.

With all the injuries, Van Jefferson (7/3-29-1) should be the main wideout now. It's not the worst idea to give him a shot, but I still don't want anyone on this team right now.

Travis Etienne, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars (Foot)

Travis Etienne's managers got a scare today. With the news of Etienne hurting his foot going down, everyone was thinking it was the same foot. Turns out, we were wrong.

According to the man himself (Etienne), he will be good to go for their next game. Even with Etienne saying that I am still skeptical. It's always best to expect him to miss a week (or more), so you can find a backup plan.

With that being said, JaMichael Hasty (12-28; 5/5-67-1) will lead the backfield. He is worth a pickup. As for James Robinson, nobody knows why he was a healthy scratch but I expect him to be out there if Etienne is out.

If you have the room, take the shot.

Michael Carter, RB, New York Jets (Sprained Ankle)

Michael Carter sprained his ankle and did not return. He was only able to muster up 36 total yards on eight touches.

This is an injury you must monitor. More than likely, Michael Carter will be missing a game or two. Zonovan Knight led the team in carries (14), yards (69), and RB targets (3) but he should not be on your radar. The same can be said for Ty Johnson.

With Mike White at the helm, expect a more pass-happy offense.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, San Francisco 49ers (Knee (MCL Sprain?)

Another RB that can't stay healthy. Elijah Mitchell, once again, went down with a knee injury. If it's sprained like they are saying, I expect Mitchell to miss some time.

With this injury, Christian McCaffrey (11-32) should see the bulk of the carries. Jordan Mason (5-25) could see a few touches here and there.

This is crazy to say, but the 49ers are becoming more reliant on the passing game. They threw the ball 37 times to only 29 rush attempts. If this trend continues, you are going to want to start Aiyuk (8/5-65) and the other pass-catchers (Deebo and Kittle).
