Hopefully you’ve had time to look over this week’s injury reports, but if you haven’t, have a click over here:Philadelphia Spinners Boston Whitecaps D.C. Current Seattle Rainmakers Vancouver Nighthawks Portland Stags San Francisco Dogfish

Boston Whitecaps

HUGE injuries from the Whitecaps have absolutely destroyed a couple of my fantasy leagues. Will Neff, Rusty Ingold-Smith and Jon Hirschberger are out for the year. With Lee Farnsworth also out with injury, Boston’s D-line is now extremely thin. I haven’t even mentioned Josh Markette missing the opening weekend double header. Some unknown players need to step up or the Whitecaps might be looking at a 0-2 start.

Philadelphia Spinners

Nothing out of the ordinary for the Spinners this week with Matt Paparone being the only starter inactive. Leon Chou looks good to go with his bruised heel while Nick Purifico’s hamstring problems are turning him into a game-time decision.

Portland Stags

Camden Allision-Hall is out for the season with a knee injury. The only other major inactive this week is Steve Kenton. Expect Tad Jenson’s numbers to be inflated with the added touches he’ll receive.

D.C. Current

The biggest story from the Current this week isn’t who will be missing the games, but who will be playing in them. Dom Gibson and Seth Wiggins, both possible top 20 fantasy players, are active for this week.

Vancouver Nighthawks

Matthew Berezan is doubtful with a knee injury. He’s a top fantasy play if he does see the field but I don’t think risking a roster spot is worth it. If you’re looking for an O-line player to fill the void on your fantasy team, William Vu, while an unknown, has the possibility to pay off big time for you. Jordan Tessarolo, one of my top fantasy players coming into the season is also out with injury this week.

San Francisco Dogfish

Drew Kim is questionable with a shoulder injury, which has potential to not only hurt the Dogfish this weekend but hurt your fantasy matchup.

Seattle Rainmakers

Seattle is missing two starters in Todd Sliva and Daniel Trytiak. The rest of the roster is injury free.
