Spencer Ware Season Ending Surgery
Fourth-year running back Spencer Ware will have season ending surgery after sustaining damage to the lateral collateral ligament, and a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The 25-year old Ware led the Chiefs with 921 rushing yards on 214 attempts (4.3 YPC), which placed him 16th among all rushers. As a result, his fourth round ADP demonstrated the confidence that many owners had placed in him to remain productive this season. However, that did not prohibit conjecture regarding how the workload would be distributed between Ware and talented rookie Kareem Hunt. But Ware’s unfortunate injury will end all uncertainty surrounding the depth chart for Kansas City’s backfield. As Hunt will now be given the opportunity to operate as the Chiefs’ feature back.

Phil is a proud Hoosier, who relocated in Nebraska, and began playing fantasy football nearly 20 years ago. In his first ever draft, he had the third overall pick and selected Barry Sanders. That choice was instantly mocked by several other owners, but Sanders ultimately scored 14 touchdowns and generated 2,358 total yards during an exceptional season. That instantly taught Phil a very important lesson – even though none of us will forecast with 100% accuracy, you should follow your gut instincts whenever you truly believe in a player. Phil began his writing career with RotoWire, later joined Fanball, and has since returned home to the Gridiron Experts. He remains firmly convinced that the key to happiness can be found through a subscription to the Sunday Ticket.
