Injury Zach Wilson expected back for Week 4
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 26 2022, 7:00 am


New York Jets
After sitting out three games with a knee injury, New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is poised to return next Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "I'm expecting [him back], but until the doctors say so, I'm just going to say he's being evaluated," coach Robert Saleh said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: In Wilson's absence, Joe Flacco has finished as the QB20, QB5 and QB24 the last three weeks. Flacco has averaged 51 pass attempts in three games as the team continues to play from behind. The Jets upcoming schedule includes @PIT, MIA and @GB.

Injury Josh Jacobs a gametime decision
Flew separately to Nashville to due illness
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 25 2022, 9:16 am


Las Vegas Raiders
Raiders’ RB Josh Jacobs, who flew separately from the team to Tennessee due to an illness and is listed as questionable for today, will work out in pregame warmups to determine his availability. There is optimism he will be ready to play, but no decision until pregame warmups. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Jacobs is leaning towards playing, but if he is ultimately ruled out, the Raiders are likely to go with some king of committee with Brandon Bolden, Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah all taking part.

Injury Jakobi Meyers not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 25 2022, 8:57 am


New England Patriots
Patriots’ WR Jakobi Meyers, listed as questionable today due to a knee injury, is not expected to play vs. the Ravens, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Meyers missed practice time this week and will sit this one out against Baltimore. Perhaps DeVante Parker will see and increased role after posting a 1-9-0 line on 4 targets through two games. Nelson Agholor (6-110-1 last week) and Kendrick Bourne should round out the three wide receiver sets for New England.

Injury Justin Herbert remains a gametime decision
May take pain-killing injection
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 25 2022, 8:15 am


Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is expected to make a decision during pregame warm-ups on Sunday about whether to take a pain-killing injection in his fractured rib cartilage to try and play against the Jacksonville Jaguars, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Herbert wants to play, a source told Schefter, but, there was growing skepticism about his status going into the weekend. The decision to play has bounced back and forth throughout the week, Schefter reports. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This sounds like Herbert is truly a 50-50 call and puts fantasy owners in a bind considering the Chargers and Jaguars don't play until late-afternoon. Keenan Allen is in the same boat with his hamstring injury. He's listed as a gametime decision and can't be trusted even if he does play.

Injury Randall Cobb in, Christian Watson unlikely to play
Hamstring injury for Watson
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 25 2022, 7:30 am


Green Bay Packers
Packers’ WR Randall Cobb, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an illness, is likely to play vs. the Buccaneers; however rookie WR Christian Watson, listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, is unlikely to play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Sammy Watkins already ruled out, the Packers are looking at three wide receiver sets of Allen Lazard, Romeo Doubs and Randall Cobb. The matchup isn't great against Tampa Bay but Doubs is becoming a cheap WR option in DFS.

Injury Jerry Jeudy on track to play Sunday night
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 25 2022, 7:00 am


Denver Broncos
Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy, listed as questionable for Sunday night due to a rib and shoulder injury, is on track to play vs. 49ers but wants to see how it feels in pre-game warmups, per source. Broncos CB Patrick Surtain, questionable due to a shoulder injury, is expected to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sounds like Jeudy will be out there against the 49ers but with Denver not playing until Sunday night we won't know for sure until later this evening. He was limited in practice on Friday making a shaky WR3 play in Week 3.

Injury J.K. Dobbins expected to play in Week 3
Missed weeks 1 and 2
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 24 2022, 6:28 pm


Baltimore Ravens
Ravens’ RB J.K. Dobbins, who tore his ACL, LCL, meniscus and hamstring last year and is questionable for Sunday, is expected to make his 2022 regular-season debut vs. the Patriots, per source. “It’s time,” as one source said. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Ravens' run game outside of Lamar Jackson has been putrid to start the season with no running back to rush for more than 31 yards in the first two weeks. We certainly can't expect Dobbins to carry a full workload his first game back but it's a step in the right direction for his fantasy value this season.

Injury Josh Jacobs not traveling with team to Nashville
Illness, listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 23 2022, 5:24 pm


Las Vegas Raiders
Also, while RB Josh Jacobs (illness) is officially QUESTIONABLE, he is not traveling with the #Raiders to Nashville today. Linebacker Denzel Perryman and receiver Hunter Renfrow were both ruled OUT by the Raiders for Sunday's game at the Titans. (Paul Gutierrez on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs may fly on his own this weekend if the Raiders want him to play but this obviously a situation worth monitoring closely. Jacobs has missed the last two days of practice due to an illness. If Jacobs were to miss, we're likely to see some combo of Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah and rookie Zamir White - none of which can be counted on in fantasy lineups.

Injury Just Herbert, Keenan Allen listed as Questionable
Gametime decisions
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 23 2022, 4:29 pm


Los Angeles Chargers
WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), RT Trey Pipkins (ankle) and TE Donald Parham (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday along with Justin Herbert. CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) and C Corey Linsley (knee) are doubtful. Chase Daniel will start if Justin Herbert can’t go, Brandon Staley said. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The total on the Charges-Jaguars as dropped from LAC -7 earlier today to LAC -3.0 indicating Vegas doesn't think Herbert is going to play. They will put Herbert through a workout on Sunday before determining his status. Allen is also questionable to play after sustaining a hamstring injury in Week 1.

Injury Chris Godwin Out, Gage misses practice Friday
Bucs dealing with multiple WR injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 23 2022, 4:12 pm


Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) and DT Akiem Hicks (foot) are out. LT Donovan Smith (elbow) TE Cade Otton (personal reasons) is doubtful. WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice Friday and is questionable. RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) was limited and questionable. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Godwin Out, Mike Evans suspended and Gage, Julio Jones and Breshad Perriman all listed as Questionable the Bucs are struggling for healthy quality receivers. Cole Beasley would have to be elevated from the practice squad on Saturday in order to play. Julio is shaping up to be a gametime decision and can't be trusted even if he does play. Perriman and Scotty Miller may get the most targets on Sunday.

Injury Sammy Watkins Out for Week 3
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 23 2022, 4:12 pm


Green Bay Packers
Sammy Watkins will not have an encore this week to his 3 catches, 93 yards. He has been ruled out vs. Bucs because of his hamstring injury. David Bakhtiari is questionable for 3rd straight week. Randall Cobb (illness), Christian Watson (hamstring), Marcedes Lewis (groin) also questionable. Mason Crosby (illness) was dropped from injury report. Elgton Jenkins also dropped from injury report. He’s in good shape. (Ryan Wood on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The good news is Alan Lazard (ankle) did practice on Friday and is expected to play although the matchup isn't great against a Bucs secondary only allowed 1 TD to the wide receiver position in two games. We could see increased usage for Romeo Doubs this week.

Injury Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce expected to play Wk3
Pierce cleared the concussion protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 23 2022, 2:09 pm


Indianapolis Colts
Reich on Michael Pittman Jr.: "He's ready to go." Reich confirms Alec Pierce cleared the concussion protocol last night. #Colts (George Bremer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both Colts' wide receivers missed last week but expect to be on the field for their matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday. Pittman can be considered a solid WR2 option as the team attempts to put their faceplant against Jacksonville behind them.

Injury Jakobi Meyers misses practice Thursday
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 22 2022, 4:48 pm


New England Patriots
Patriots' injury report remains the same as Wednesday, with one exception: Starting CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) was limited on Thursday. DID NOT PARTICIPATE: S Kyle Dugger (knee), WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Meyers missed practice on Wednesday as well. The Patriots are typically tight lipped about injuries and this case is no exception. We'll have a better idea of his true status after practice on Friday. New England faces Baltimore in the early window on Sunday.

Injury Hunter Renfrow misses second straight practice
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 22 2022, 4:03 pm


Las Vegas Raiders
#Raiders still without 3 starters through two practices this week: - WR Hunter Renfrow (concussion) - LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) - S Tre'von Moehrig (hip) I would say Perryman is the most significant potential absence. (Tashan Reed on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Renfrow suffered a concussion late in the Raiders Week 2 game against the Cardinals and hasn't practiced since. If he sits, we could see more usage for Mack Hollins who has been operating as the third wideout for Derek Carr.

Injury George Kittle limited on Wednesday
Missed Week 1 & 2 with groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 21 2022, 3:55 pm


San Francisco
Arik Armstead (foot) won't practice today but Kyle Shanahan said he think he'll be alright for Sunday's game. TE George Kittle (groin) will be limited in practice. (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kittle has missed the first two weeks with a groin injury but seems to be on track for playing in Week 3 against the Broncos. Jimmy Garoppolo will be under center which probably gives Kittle a little boost over the uncertain chemistry with Trey Lance.

Injury Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen "day to day" per Staley
Herbert will participate in individual drills Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 21 2022, 3:49 pm


Los Angeles Chargers
Justin Herbert is “day to day” per Brandon Staley. Herbert threw yesterday and did some “rotational” work. He will participate in individual drills today, according to Staley. WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), TE Donald Parham (hamstring), C Corey Linsley (knee) and RT Trey Pipkins (ankle/foot) are all “day to day” per Brandon Staley. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Herbert suffered a rib in Week 2 and it remains to be seen if he will play in Week 3 against the Jaguars. Allen's hamstring injury occurred in Week 1. We'll know more about all the Chargers' wounded later in the week.

Injury James Conner expected to be OK for Week 3
Suffered ankle injury in Week 2; considered day-to-day
By: Doug Orth | Sep 20 2022, 11:55 pm


Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said RB James Conner will be day to day with the ankle injury. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Conner mustered only 25 yards on seven carries and 26 yards on two catches before exiting early in the third quarter against the Raiders. Expect the team to take it easy on him in practice this week before giving him the nod in Week 3 against the Rams. Conner is unlikely to have much of a fantasy ceiling in that contest, but the good news is that he has drawn 10 targets in just over five quarters of action. That kind of involvement in the passing game should keep him on the RB2 radar.

Injury Dobbins still "week-to-week"
RB continues his journey back from severe knee injury
By: Doug Orth | Sep 20 2022, 11:50 pm


Baltimore Ravens
Harbaugh reiterated that J.K. Dobbins is "week-to-week." Wouldn't say whether he'll return Sunday. (The Athletic - Jeff Zrebiec)

FFToday's Take: We know from the fact that Dobbins' full participation in practice last week that he is close to a return. Unfortunately, it appears the team's optimism a couple of weeks ago may have been premature. It is beginning to appear as if Dobbins and Gus Edwards may be on similar schedules. Until then, fantasy managers probably need to avoid this backfield, which features Kenyan Drake, Mike Davis and Justice Hill at the moment.

Tampa Bay signs veteran WR Cole Beasley
Headed to the practice squad
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 20 2022, 7:44 am


Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Confirmed Bucs are signing Bills WR Cole Beasley to their practice squad. Julio Jones and Chris Godwin are injured while Mike Evans is suspended. Another vet receiver for Tom Brady, who was upset at some dropped passes Sunday, not all by receivers. @MikeGarafolo reported first. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's interesting to note that Beasley will begin on the practice squad. The team can elevate him on gameday's without having to cut somebody right now. It's doubtful Beasley is going to make any kind of immediate fantasy impact but something to keep your eye on. Scotty Miller may be the odd man out here.

Injury Dalton Schultz dealing with PCL injury
TE uncertain for Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Sep 20 2022, 12:20 am


Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the team feels “good about the scan” today for TE Dalton Schultz. Team won’t know whether Schultz will be available next Monday at Giants until leading up closer to game. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: While the team might feel good about the scan, most fantasy managers will not have the luxury of waiting for the Cowboys to decide if he can play in Week 3 with their game being on Monday against the Giants. Even if he does play, it is hard to imagine he will be effective with a similar injury to the one that bothered Ezekiel Elliott most of last season. Jake Ferguson would most likely start in his place if he sits, but it is very likely there are better options available on the wire.

Injury Michael Gallup getting closer to return
WR could return from ACL injury in Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Sep 19 2022, 11:35 pm


Dallas Cowboys
WR Michael Gallup (knee) will need a full week's worth of practice before determining his availability for Monday night against the Giants, per McCarthy. (Around The NFL)

FFToday's Take: Gallup did not begin the season on injured reserve, which is an indication the Cowboys believed he would be ready to play before Week 5. So, he is close. One silver lining during his absence is that Noah Brown has emerged as a very capable replacement through two games. However, Gallup could be needed more now with Dalton Schultz (knee) expected to miss some time.

Injury Michael Pittman Jr. hopeful for Week 3
WR missed Week 2 with quad injury
By: Doug Orth | Sep 19 2022, 11:30 pm


Indianapolis Colts
The Colts are hoping Michael Pittman Jr.'s absence is a one-game absence, but they're going to take it patient heading into Wednesday's practice to get him right. (Indianapolis Star - Nate Atkins)

FFToday's Take: Pittman went off for 9-121-1 in the Colts' season-opening tie with the Texans. In his absence against a below-average Jaguars secondary on Sunday, Indy's receivers combined for eight receptions for 126 scoreless yards. Needless to say, Pittman's return can't come soon enough. It sounds as if the Colts might be cautious with his practice schedule early this week, but the fact the team is optimistic this early bodes well for his Week 3 status against the Chiefs. If he suits up, he should be in lineups.

Mike Evans gets one-game suspension
Unnecessary roughness with Saints’ CB Marshon Lattimore
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 19 2022, 12:33 pm


Tampa Bay Buccaneers
NFL suspended Buccaneers’ WR Mike Evans one game for Sunday’s unnecessary roughness with Saints’ CB Marshon Lattimore. Evans was suspended one game for a previous fracas with Lattimore in 2017. (https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter)

FFToday's Take: Evans got into it with Lattimore yesterday during the Bucs-Saints game that resulted in both players being ejected. Tampa Bay is already dealing with multiple injured receivers including Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee). We should see a lot of Breshad Perriman and Russell Gage in Week 3 against the Packers.

Injury Trey Lance out for the season with broken ankle
Jimmy Garoppolo back in the saddle
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 18 2022, 7:15 pm


San Francisco
Kyle Shanahan told reporters that Trey Lance broke his ankle and will undergo season-ending surgery Monday. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lance was injured in the first quarter and had to be carted off. Jimmy Garoppolo stepped in and went 13-21 for 154 yards and 1 TD. He'll be the 49ers starting quarterback the rest of the season and be a priority pickup on the waiver wire this week, especially for owners in 2QB leagues.

Injury J.K. Dobbins expected to sit in Week 2
2022 debut will have to wait
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 18 2022, 9:38 am


Baltimore Ravens
Ravens continue to exercise caution with RB J.K. Dobbins and do not plan to play him today vs. the Dolphins, per league sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Dobbins is trying to come back from a significant knee injury but he debut will have to wait. With Dobbins absent in Week 1, the Ravens running backs did very little with Kenyan Drake (33) seeing the most snaps ahead of Justice Hill (11) and Mike Davis (7). Drake is really the only option to consider.

Injury Allen Lazard is expected to play
Sprained ankle
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 18 2022, 8:10 am


Green Bay Packers
Packers’ WR Allen Lazard, listed as questionable for Sunday night due to a sprained ankle, is expected to play vs. the Bears, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lazard missed Week 1 after a teammate stepped on his ankle during practice. Given the state of the Packers' receiving corps Lazard should see as much playing time as he can handle but will be a risky WR3 this week against the Bears.

Injury Alvin Kamara not expected to play
Rib cartilage injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 18 2022, 8:00 am


New Orleans
Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a rib injury, is not expected to play vs. the Buccaneers, per source. Saints’ RB Mark Ingram, also listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to to play vs. the Buccaneers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport is reporting that Kamara has a rib cartilage injury and the team will decide this morning if he can play. It doesn't sound likely. Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play with Tony Jones and Dwayne Washington playing in a backup role. Ideally, Ingram would be a Flex option for lineup against the Bucs.

Injury Mike Evans expected to play, Julio gametime decision
Knee injury for Julio Jones
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 17 2022, 11:41 pm


Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs WR Mike Evans, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a calf injury, is expected to play to play vs. the Saints, per source. Bucs don’t expect to know whether they will have WR Julio Jones, who is Q due to a knee injury, until they see how he feels during pre-game warmups. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio lasted one week before coming down with a nagging injury. He will test his knee in warm-ups to see if he can give it a go. In other Bucs injury news, Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Russell Gage (hamstring) are both expected to play.

Injury Gabriel Davis added to injury report, Questionable
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 17 2022, 2:46 pm


Buffalo Bills
Bills are listing WR Gabriel Davis as questionable for Monday might vs. the Titans due to an ankle injury. Davis was added to injury report today after taking part in a limited practice. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: No word yet on how severe the injury is but hopefully we'll get more information before l pm Eastern on Sunday. Isaiah McKenzie and Jamison Crowder would stand to benefit if Davis sits.

Injury RB Dontrell Hilliard ruled Out for Week 2
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 17 2022, 2:16 pm


Tennessee Titans
Mike Vrabel ruled out Kristian Fulton, Jemarco Jones and Dontrell Hilliard for the #Titans. (Turron Davenport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hilliard (hamstring) operated as the backup to Derrick Henry in Week 1 but we're likely to see more of rookie Hassan Haskins in Monday night's game against the Bills. Haskins played on 14% of snaps in Week 1.

Injury Colts downgrade Michael Pittman Jr. to Out for Week 2
Quad injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 17 2022, 12:48 pm


Indianapolis Colts
Colts downgraded WR Michael Pittman Jr. to out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Pittman is dealing with a quad injury that occurred in Wednesday's practice. Alec Pierce (concussion) has already been ruled out. Expect Matt Ryan to lean on Parris Campbell, RB Nyheim Hines and Ashton Dulin in the passing game and a whole lot of Jonathan Taylor on the ground.

Injury George Kittle a gametime decision, Questionable
Limited in practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 16 2022, 4:43 pm


San Francisco
#49ers Kyle Shanahan reiterated what John Lynch said earlier in the week - George Kittle will be a game time decision. Have to believe that the weather on Sunday will be a contributing factor in the decision. A wet field would not be ideal for someone w a groin injury. (Jennifer Lee Chan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kittle (groin) was limited in practice Friday. After missing Week 1 he's probably on the wrong side of Questionable and would be very difficult to trust getting in only one limited practice during the week.

Injury Alvin Kamara missed practice Friday, Questionable
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 16 2022, 4:16 pm


New Orleans
A lot of Saints listed as questionable this week. But based on Alvin Kamara not practicing Thursday and Friday, I’d consider him more of a doubtful - while Jameis Winston and Mark Ingram feel more probable. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We should get some clarity on Kamara by Sunday morning but it isn't look great at the moment considering he missed practice Thursday and Friday. Ingram and Tony Jones would be the next running backs up with Latavius Murray waiting to be called up from the practice squad.

Injury Tee Higgins practices Friday, listed as Questionable
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 16 2022, 3:17 pm


Cincinnati Bengals
Good sign for Tee Higgins: He was a full participant for the first time this week. Was limited Wed. and out yesterday for personal reasons (Ben Baby on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Things seem to be trending in the right direction for Higgins who left last week's game with a concussion. He'll need to clear the concussion protocol on Saturday, but it sounds like he's going to play.

Injury Michael Pittman Jr. listed as Questionable, quad injury
Held out of practice Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 16 2022, 1:34 pm


Indianapolis Colts
Michael Pittman Jr.'s quad issue cropped Wednesday. Held out of yesterday's practice mainly as a precaution. He and DeForest Buckner (hip) will be listed as questionable. #Colts (George Bremer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Colts just held a walkthrough on Friday and didn't technically practice. Rookie WR Alec Pierce (concussion) has been ruled out. The Colts play in the early window on Sunday so we'll get a good indication of his true status by Sunday morning but it sounds like he will play.

Injury Arizona expected to be without Rondale Moore, Andy Isabella
Greg Dortch show?
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 16 2022, 10:36 am


Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andy Isabella (strained back) is not expected to play this week, but not regarded as a long-term injury, per a league source. Cardinals also expected to be without Rondale Moore for another week due to a pulled hamstring, per source @PFN365. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Looks like it's going to be the Greg Dortch show again. Dortch (7-63-0) was manning the slot in Week 1 against the Chiefs and received 9 targets, playing on 91% of the Cardinals offensive snaps. He'll be a viable option in PPR leagues as Flex play or WR3 against the Raiders in a game with a 51.5 total.

Injury Alvin Kamara misses practice on Thursday
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 15 2022, 3:53 pm


New Orleans
Saints RB Alvin Kamara downgraded to a DNP in Thursday’s practice with his rib injury, which puts a question mark on his status for Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kamara was limited in practice Wednesday so his availability for Week 2 (vs TB) in certainly in question. Kamara was in on 62% of the snaps Week 1 with Mark Ingram (33%) and Tony Jones (1%) the only other RBs to see the field. Ingram (ankle) was also limited in practice. Friday's practice report will give us a better indication of their status.

Injury J.K Dobbins gets in full practice on Wednesday
Missed Week 1 with knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 14 2022, 4:42 pm


Baltimore Ravens
Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, which means he's trending toward playing his first game of the season. Dobbins was limited all last week. (Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: While Dobbins missed Week 1 with a knee injury, the remaining Ravens' running backs posted a 15-46-0; 3-22-0 line with Kenyan Drake getting the most carries (11). Dobbins returning to action in Week 2 against the Dolphins would be a welcome sight. We'll have a better idea of his status after practice on Friday.

Injury Keenan Allen ruled out for Week 2
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sep 14 2022, 2:50 pm


Los Angeles Chargers
WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) and TE Donald Parham (hamstring) are OUT for Thursday night vs. Chiefs. CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) is QUESTIONABLE. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Allen injured his hamstring Week 1 and wasn't likely to play this week against the Chiefs given the short turnaround in Week 2. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert in a potential shootout. The Chiefs will be without rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie (hamstring).

Irv Smith not limited due to thumb injury
HC: Smith's lack of snaps due to game plan
By: Doug Orth | Sep 13 2022, 11:55 pm


Minnesota Vikings
TE Johnny Mundt played 40 snaps to Irv Smith Jr.'s 19. O'Connell today: "Irv is going to have a major role for us." But it appears the snap count was based on game plan, not health. "Those guys all know how we operate. We're a game-to-game, week-to-week operation." (ESPN - Kevin Seifert)

FFToday's Take: So much for the excuse that Smith's usage in the opener had to do with the time he missed in camp due to his injured thumb. While the expectation should be that he is much more involved going forward, O'Connell's current stance makes it almost impossible to start Smith with any confidence right now. As such, he belongs on fantasy benches for now.
