If you're still paying attention to your fantasy Football team, congratulations! It likely means that you made your league's playoffs and aren't in need of a great amount of advice on how to manage your roster in Week 14. You may be in need of the latest injury news to fantasy football stars, though, and that's where this article comes into play. In the past couple of hours, three major players have been sidelined by injuries, which could greatly affect any team's fantasy hopes. Here's an update on those three players.

WR Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Thomas had begun to move past fellow Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks as the most valuable fantasy option in New Orleans.

The rookie out of Ohio State has 69 receptions, 831 yards, and seven touchdowns this season, and had generally been considered a low-end WR1 heading into Week 14 despite a much quieter game last week. He has been ruled out for the late afternoon game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a foot injury. In turn, expect more targets to go Cooks' way.

WR Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Jones is in a similar boat as Thomas for fantasy football players. Despite his erratic play on a week-to-week basis, his extremely high-ceiling makes him a must-start for any fantasy team. A turf toe injury, however, has been ruled to be too challenging to overcome, forcing Jones out against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.

The speedy Taylor Gabriel will get a greater look, but the real fantasy benefits should fall to the running game in Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

RB Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers

Gordon failed to score a single touchdown in his rookie season, but emerged as one of the best fantasy football running backs in 2016.

He has ten touchdowns and was just eight yards away from hitting 1000 for the season when he suffered a hip injury in the Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers. Kenneth Farrow took over in the running game and Gordon dealt a crippling blow to fantasy owners when he was ruled out for the game.
