Matt Breida has been in and out of multiple games this season. When in, he has been very effective. Most recently in week 5 against the Cardinals his left ankle got rolled on by Budda Baker on a tackle in the first quarter. He did not return. The MRI afterwards was reported to show a “mid-ankle sprain.” First, in medical terms “mid-ankle sprain” is not a thing. You can either have a high ankle sprain or a low ankle sprain. A high ankle sprain is an injury to the syndesmotic ligaments which is a fancy term for saying the ligaments that help hold the 2 bones in your lower leg together and stable. A low ankle sprain is more common and is an injury to the ATFL and CFL. Based on video it looked like a high ankle sprain. He is currently listed as a “game-time decision” for Monday night.
It is always difficult in fantasy when you have an injured player on Monday night because you don’t want to be stuck starting him and then him not playing. I would recommend NOT starting him in fantasy. He will not be able to return in 1 week from a high ankle sprain and be effective. I would recommend starting Alfred Morris who should benefit from Breida not playing.
