Louis Delmas is doubtful. We break down the fantasy implications.

Louis Delmas (knee) missed practice all week and is doubtful to play in the Week 1 matchup against the Rams.

Analysis: Delmas could have been a decent spot-start at home against the Rams, but there's no way IDP owners can trust a guy like Delmas with the injury risk hanging over his head. Erik Coleman is actually a sneaky IDP play for owners that feel like rolling the dice and he has a shot for eight tackles and a pick. That said, he's a DB3 at best. Detroit's D is one of the best bets to go off on Sunday with their pressure and the permeable St. Louis O-line.
