Fantasy Implications of Jerome Ford Injury
Prior to his injury, Jerome Ford was having a great fantasy day with 94 total yards and a score against the Indianapolis Colts. Ford has led the team in carries every game since Nick Chubb suffered a season-ending injury back in Week 2.
If Ford will miss any time in the future, Kareem Hunt immediately gets a fantasy bump in RB2 consideration, with Pierre Strong Jr. also set to see some extra work in the Browns backfield.
