4. Tevin Coleman
Good Day Cut Short: Tevin Coleman (8 carries, 64 rushing yards, 1 catch, 10 receiving yards, 1 rushing touchdown: 13.40 points)
Tevin Coleman looked well on his way to having another memorable fantasy day until a hamstring injury robbed him of most of the second half.
The second year man out of Indiana looked very spry in this one — averaging 8.0 yards per carry on eight carries, in addition to a 10-yard catch.
The culmination of Coleman’s afternoon was a blazing fast 30-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He got to the second level in an instant, and gave the Chargers’ defensive players no chance at catching up to him from there.
Unfortunately, Coleman’s 17-yard first down run with 12:10 left in the third quarter was his last piece of action due to the aforementioned hamstring injury.
Analysis: Coleman was clearly the team’s best running back in this one, but it looks like he’ll miss the game against Green Bay next week. Monitor the situation and be ready to potentially adjust your lineups accordingly in response to an absence.
Even if Coleman is cleared to play I would advise against starting him in fantasy, as he would probably be very limited. Bills RB Lesean McCoy just got a start while battling hamstring problems and totaled just 11 yards on eight carries before aggravating the injury. A hamstring is nothing to mess with.
