Sean Weatherspoon is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.
Sean Weatherspoon (hamstring) was held out of practice on Friday after participating on Wednesday and Thursday. He is listed as questionable for Monday's big game against Denver.
Analysis: Now that Brent Grimes is out for the year, Weatherspoon is by far the best player on Atlanta's defense. Atlanta rarely played in their base D, so Weatherspoon and Stephen Nichols played a ton of snaps and should continue to rack up tackles. Weatherspoon owners should feel comfortable rolling the dice in standard leagues and Stephen Nichols should be set up for another nice game, too. Atlanta's team defense is going to be a risky play against Peyton Manning and how rarely he gets sacked.
