Sunday update: I’ve removed the players that are out and bumped up their backups. Gabriel Davis has been moved down quite a bit. He could play, but no information is tough to out him in as a starter right now.
Saturday update: We’ve had a few injuries pop this week, with Michael Pittman suddenly out, Alvin Kamara questionable after missing Thursday and Friday practice, and Gabe Davis tweaking his ankle on Saturday and being listed as questionable for Monday night. At this point we don’t have any inside info on Davis. Hopefully we will before we have to set our lineups, but if not, I’d try to have a flex/WR ready to go from the Monday night games in case he ends up not playin. Possible good news for Kamara is the fact they didn’t elevate Latavius Murray to the 53-man roster, but they do have three backs besides Murray that could play.
D’Andre Swift is also questionable after getting a limited practice on on Friday. He says he’ll play, but we can’t exactly take his word as gospel if the team doesn’t want to risk his ankle injury getting worse.
George Kittle was able to finally get a limited practice in on Friday and is a game-time decision against the Seahawks. With tight ends the way they are, if heplays, you’ll want to start him.
Allen Lazard got in limited practices all week and is questionable. He isn’t a lock, but he has a much better chance to suit up this week against the Bears.
Tee Higgins looks like he’ll be cleared from the concussion protocol of their Sunday game with the Cowboys. It’s not a 100% lock, but it would be surprising if he didn’t go.
Chris Godwin is out and multiple offensive players are questionable for the Bucs, including Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Russell Gage and Leonard Fournette. It appears they will each play this week, but there is a bit more of a chance one will leave the game due to injury.
Welcome to Week 2 of the NFL season. Week 1 saw a lot of the top fantasy players put up top fantasy points. The Top 7 fantasy point gatherers were Justin Jefferson, Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley, Cooper Kupp, Josh Allen, Davante Adams, and Ja’Marr Chase. That is what we like to see; good players playing well.
Injury news to monitor
Chris Godwin is out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury. Julio Jones will likely see the biggest windfall of fantasy upside. The Cowboys will be without Dak Prescott for about eight weeks due to a thumb injury, so Cooper Rush is now QB1. The Chargers could be without Keenan Allen for their Thursday night matchup with the Chiefs, as he’s dealing with a hamstring injury.
George Kittle missed Week 1 with a groin injury. He could be back for Week 2 against the Seahawks, but it’s still too early to know. Elijah Mitchell is out for around eight weeks, so Jeff Wilson Jr. will get the RB1 role moving forward.
