The NFL is back for Week 14 of the 2020 regular season, and the schedule appears to be on track for the first time in a few weeks. Covid-19 resulted in some adjustments to Week 12 and Week 13, but this week everything is a go for a normal Thursday, Sunday, Monday schedule.

Fantasy football playoffs are underway in most leagues, there are some injury questions to sort out this week. Josh Jacobs, D’Andre Swift, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire are all expected back this week. Frank Gore is expected to play but needs to clear the final bit of the concussion protocol Sunday morning.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last minute roster decisions. That means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 14 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.

Josh Jacobs NOT playing

4:05/4:25 p.m. inactives report


RB Josh Jacobs

WR Jamison Crowder



Jamison Crowder status still unclear

ESPN’s Rich Cimini suggested the Jets have flexibility to dress him as an emergency WR. That means even if he is active, it’s possible we see him as a decoy or just not playing at all. Barring any updates, consider fantasy football alternatives this week.
