UPDATE: Buccaneers RB Peyton Hillis suffers hyperextended knee

Update: Per source, ESPN's Adam Schefter says Hillis is actually expected to miss only "a couple of days."


Lastly in this string of notes regarding Thursday's injuries, we have Buccaneers running back Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis. He suffered a hyperextended left knee versus the Ravens. According to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud, the injury is not believed to be season-ending.

Fantasy Analysis:

I watched this game live, and when Hillis first went down, it looked really bad. He should consider himself fortunate that we're talking about only a hyperextension and not something direr with that knee. With this update from Schefter, Hillis remains in the running to open the season as Doug Martin @DougMartin22's backup. The other top names for that job are Michael Smith @michaeldsmith34 and Mike James. In other words, please stay healthy, Mr. Martin. Please.

All RB's are ticking time-bombs but, It just feels like, short, stout Backs like Martin and Rice are injury proof. I know this is delusional but, I feel very safe with either of these studs in the 1st Rnd.
