Denver Broncos quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.

Denver Broncos quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.

Another one bites the dust. Gronk, Graham, and Romo, come on down. Welcome to this year's list of fantasy-killing injuries.

The silver lining is that Rob Gronkowski's knee doesn't look to be a season-ending injury. Tony Romo and Jimmy Graham, not so lucky.

I sound like a broken record, every week another injury. The only thing that changes are the names.

I'm guessing with all the doom and gloom in this world, I should dive into some rainbows and butterflies.

Brock Osweiler (QB, Den).

This has very little fantasy relevance. I don't care. He just took down the mighty Patriots in the snow. The running backs looked better also. The passing game was somewhat negated because of the weather, but well done, young man. Let the quarterback controversy begin.

Insert Kansas City Chiefs Running Back Here.

This week it was Spencer Ware. He ran for over 100 yards and a score. Not too bad for a fourth stringer at the start of the year. Andy Reid just keeps turning out quality production from the RB position. Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West, and, now, Ware. Oh, and they won...again.

Doug Baldwin (Sea, WR) and Jermaine Kearse (Sea, WR).

Who knew that Seattle even had wide receivers? Word around the Seahawks campfire is that an uptempo offense is going to be more the norm. Jimmy Graham is out for the season, so we could see production out of this group, finally. Maybe the top WR of the week and another in double digits. Both could be interesting adds

Vance McDonald (TE, SF).

Garret Celek is out, and Vernon Davis is in Denver. McDonald, once upon a time, was a high draft pick. Gabbert hasn't been terrible. All those things make McDonald worth a look. Two consecutive career games. Can he make it three?

The weather outside is frightful. Watch for those bigger backs, they seem to eat a lot better when the temperature drops.
