5 Fantasy Football Implications Stemming From Tuesday's Crazy Injury News
Tuesday was not a great day to be an NFL player.
With teams having to cut down to 75-man rosters yesterday afternoon, injury news started flying all across the board as players hit lists to exempt them from the count.

As such, let's run down each of the biggest things we learned Tuesday and try to interpret what they mean for fantasy purposes.
