Fantasy Football Quick-Hitters: LJ, Portis, Henry and Westy

The Chiefs waive Larry Johnson. It’s interesting timing. Maybe KC saw enough out of Jamaal Charles (6 rushes, 36 yards) and Kolby Smith (4 rushes, 17 yards) to make them confident enough to cut LJ loose. The Chiefs have some nice rushing matchups coming up, but if Charles is only going to get nine touches, he’s not worth starting. His 6.0 ypc was encouraging, however.

Portis doubtful for Week 10. Ladell Betts will get most of the work in the Redskins’ backfield, but Rock Cartwright might be involved around the goal line. Neither is a strong play in a bad matchup against the Broncos.

Chris Henry out for the rest of the season. Henry was a popular breakout pick back in August, but never truly made a significant fantasy impact on the field. Had Andre Caldwell not proved to be such a dependable third option in the passing game, Henry might have had a bigger season.

Westbrook out as long as he has headaches.
Apparently, he was ready to play, but a headache on Sunday caused the Eagles to think twice. Concussions are dicey, but keep an eye on him this week. If he’s practicing, then he’s probably a go unless he gets another headache next Sunday. The game is in San Diego, so whether or not he makes the flight will be a good indicator of his status.
