As we continue our list of fantasy football"s top 101 PPR players of 2017, we feature two players who have major injury concerns.So much about fantasy football isn't about John Riggins Jerseys a player's individual talent. A player's situation and offensive scheme plays a big part in their success. More importantly, a player's availability will determine if he can be a fantasy stud or not.As Bill Parcells once said, “The most important ability is availability." Who on the list today hasn't shown the ability to stay on the field? Every time 49ers running back Carlos Hyde flexes his biceps I'm afraid he's going to tear one of them. Kirk Cousins Jerseys Maybe I'm overreacting but considering how often he suffers an injury, it wouldn't be a surprise. Since entering the league in 2014 Hyde has dealt with back, knee, foot, shoulder and head injuries. As a result, he has missed 14 games in three years.If his injuries weren't such a big enough concern with Hyde, it appears he might not be in the 49ers coaching staff's good graces.Back in February the 49ers hired former Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their head coach. Since then the 49ers have added running backs Tim Hightower and Joe Williams. Last year Hightower totaled 748 yards and 5 touchdowns with the Saints and Williams was a fourth-round pick out of Utah. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported in May that Hyde was “the slowest and most indecisive running back on the team." They also speculated Hyde wasn't DeSean Jackson Jerseys a good fit for Shanahan's offensive system.Even with all of this working against Hyde, it wouldn't be a surprise if he led the 49ers backfield in carries. Yet, between Hyde's injury history and competition Sean Taylor Jerseys for touches, I'm not as high on him as some are. I really hate to put Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen this low on the list, but after the last two seasons, I have no choice. Between 2015-16 Allen has missed 23 out of a possible 32 games. During his absence for most of the last two seasons, Ryan Kerrigan Jerseys the Chargers have added capable pass-catchers in Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Hunter Henry.
