Jacoby Ford had Lisfranc surgery. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: Lisfranc surgery is no small procedure and it ended Matt Schaub's year last season. Ford has dealt with foot problems for the past two years after he hurt his foot against the Chargers last year. The Raiders lucked out by drafting Rod Streater and he will step in to Ford's role as the third receiver behind Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey. Fantasy owners can safely cut Ford faster than the 4.27 seconds he ran at the combine and Streater could sustain low-end value all year.
