Injury George Kittle to practice in full Thursday
Team managing ankle soreness from divisional round
By: Doug Orth | Jan 16 2020, 2:50 pm

San Francisco
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said TE George Kittle was just dealing with some ankle soreness. Team wants to have him as close to full strength as possible Sunday. Kittle will practice in full today. (ESPN - Nick Wagoner)

FFToday's Take: Kittle wasn't needed much last week versus the Vikings, as Shanahan leaned heavily on the running game (47 attempts). This week could play out in a similar fashion if the 49ers' defense is as dominant as it was against Minnesota, but the likelihood is San Francisco will give Kittle a bit more work this week after he punished the Packers for 129 yards and a touchdown on six catches in the teams' Week 12 meeting.
Injury George Kittle misses practice Wednesday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 15 2020, 5:30 pm

San Francisco
#49ers injury report: DNP: DL Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring), TE George Kittle (ankle) Limited: LB Kwon Alexander (pec) Full: RB Tevin Coleman (elbow), RB Raheem Mostert (calf) (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kittle may have come out of Saturday's game against the Vikings with some ankle soreness but there's no indication right now that this is a serious injury. Kittle missed two games earlier this season with knee and ankle injuries.
Injury Travis Kelce limited on Wednesday
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 15 2020, 5:10 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
LeSean McCoy, Matt Moore, and Chris Jones did not practice today. Travis Kelce was limited. (Chiefs on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kelce appeared to tweak his hamstring last week during the Divisional Round game against the Texans but continued playing on his way to a 10-134-3 line. He'll likely be limited the rest of the week but should be out there on Sunday against the Titans.
Larry Fitzgerald returning for 17th season
Began career in 2004
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 15 2020, 9:30 am

Arizona Cardinals
It’s official: Larry Fitzgerald returning in 2020 for season #17 w Cardinals. An 11-time Pro Bowler, NFL Man of the Year, Cards all-time leader in games played, catches, receiving yards, TDs & rec TDs. #2 all-time in NFL history behind only Jerry Rice in catches & rec yards. (Mark Dalton on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fitz posted a 75-804-4 line in 2019 finishing as the WR35 in PPR leagues. He should have a similar role in 2020 unless one of the young receivers (Andy Isabella, KeeSean Johnson, Hakeem Butler) makes a leap during the pre-season.
John DeFilippo out as OC in Jacksonville
One-and-done yet again
By: Doug Orth | Jan 13 2020, 7:30 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars and OC John DeFilippo have mutually agreed to part ways. (

FFToday's Take: Most fans will see this move as a good thing, but one has to wonder if DeFilippo didn't have a small hand in getting a career year out of Leonard Fournette, play a pivotal role in D.J. Chark's breakout season or have something to do with Gardner Minshew being a quick study. Expect the Jags to go with a run-first play-caller this time, but it remains to be seen if he'll do any better than DeFilippo, who has lasted no more than one year in all three offensive coordinator stints.
More work for Marshawn Lynch today?
Can we trust Pete Carroll?
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 12 2020, 10:25 am

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll alluded to, expect to see more Marshawn Lynch today than we have in the last few weeks. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carroll hinted earlier in the week that Lynch could see more work as he rounds into game shape but we've been burned before by Carroll's coach speak. Lynch had 12 touches in Week 17 and only 8 touches last week against the Eagles compared to Travis Homer's 15 touches in Week 17 and 12 touches during the Wild Card game. Lynch is probably the better fantasy play given his use around the goaline.
Injury Mark Ingram expected to play
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 11 2020, 9:22 am

Baltimore Ravens
#Ravens RB Mark Ingram is expected to play today vs. the #Titans, but his calf will be monitored for reinjury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ingram had a setback with his calf injury and was limited in practice this week. The risk of re-injury makes him a no touch in fantasy lineups this week and make Gus Edwards a deep flier for GPP lineups.
Injury Will Fuller a gametime decision
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 10 2020, 12:21 pm

Houston Texans
Bill O'Brien on Will Fuller: 'So far, so good. I think it's going to be a game-time decision' (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fuller has been battling a groin injury missing Week 17 and last week's Wild Card game against the Bills. He appears to be on track to play this week against the Chiefs but we won't know for sure until inactives come out 90 minutes before gametime.
Injury Vikings to be cautious with Adam Thielen
Needed stitches on ankle injury
By: Doug Orth | Jan 9 2020, 7:15 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings WR Adam Thielen needed stitches for a bad cut on his ankle suffered in practice Wednesday, sources say. The initial prognosis was encouraging for his chances of playing Saturday against the #49ers, but they’re still gathering information and will proceed with caution. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: He's listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, but a cut on an ankle - even a bad one - is probably a better fate than a sprain. In other words, he should be able to play. A bigger issue is a 49ers defense that is finally getting healthy. Thielen is a strong fantasy option regardless of the opponent, but this probably isn't the week to bet on him coming through in a big way.
Injury Mark Ingram limited Thursday
Questionable for divisional round
By: Doug Orth | Jan 9 2020, 7:10 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Harbaugh said that Mark Ingram was limited. “We’ll just have to see how it goes.” (The Athletic - Jeff Zrebiec)

FFToday's Take: Ingram has reportedly been very diligent with his rehab since his calf tightened on him last week, and the expectation is that the former Saint will give it a shot Saturday versus the Titans. If he doesn't, Gus Edwards should be considered a DFS staple and possesses huge upside. It's not crazy to believe Edwards is worth using in DFS regardless, as Baltimore probably will not push Ingram any more than it has to.
Injury Adam Thielen misses practice Thursday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 9 2020, 12:14 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) watching warmups today, doesn’t look like he’s practicing. Stefon Diggs (illness) is back for #Vikings. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thielen suffered a cut on his ankle yesterday that required stitches. He's expected to play Saturday against the 49ers but monitor updated tomorrow and Saturday morning.
Injury Stefon Diggs misses practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 8 2020, 3:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Three #Vikings - Stefon Diggs (illness), Jayron Kearse (toe/knee) and Mackensie Alexander (knee) - unable to practice today. Adam Thielen limited with an ankle injury that popped up today. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Mike Zimmer was optimistic that Diggs would be ready to play on Saturday against the 49ers. In all likelihood, Diggs will be in his normal role this week.
Injury Mark Ingram misses practice Tuesday
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 7 2020, 1:46 pm

Baltimore Ravens
#Ravens RB Mark Ingram, not spotted at practice by reporters on the scene, was essentially full speed last week on his calf. But he felt some tightness, source said, and pulled back to avoid re-injury. He still has a chance to play the #Titans on Saturday. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is something to keep an eye on throughout the week leading up to Saturday's game between the Ravens and Titans. If Ingram were to somehow miss the game, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill would handle the running back duties with Edwards the more likely to find the endzone.
NFL Draft Tua Tagovailoa declares for the draft
Alabama QB expected to be high pick despite hip injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 6 2020, 7:00 pm

#Bama QB Tua Tagovailoa has announced that he’s declaring for the NFL Draft. He’s a likely first-rounder - even with the hip injury. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: A November hip injury - similar to the one that ended Bo Jackson's career - almost certainly knocked Tagovailoa out of consideration for the top pick in the draft. Since then, however, he's reportedly received positive reports from his doctor and is eventually expected to make a full recovery. So long as Tagovailoa remains on a good path medically over the next three months, he could easily go inside the top 10 - if not the top 5 - in April's draft.
Marshawn Lynch expected to see more work
Limited to 18 snaps in Wild Card game
By: Doug Orth | Jan 6 2020, 6:55 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said on @710ESPNSeattle just now that he thinks Marshawn Lynch is ready to handle more of a workload now that he has two games under his belt. (ESPN - Brady Henderson)

FFToday's Take: It stands to reason, as Seattle didn't bring back an icon like Lynch to continue using him in a relief/specialty role. With that said, Travis Homer played 44 of the 64 offensive snaps Sunday, so it would seem as though Carroll is leaning toward using a split backfield for however long they remain in the postseason.
Cowboys name Mike McCarthy head coach
Replaces Jason Garrett
By: Doug Orth | Jan 6 2020, 6:40 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Scoopage alert: the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with Mike McCarthy to be their new head coach. Announcement and press conference expected later this week. (FOX Sports - Jay Glazer)

FFToday's Take: McCarthy was once considered a top offensive mind who generally got the most out of his quarterbacks. The former Packer coach famously spent last season out of the NFL embracing analytics and opening his mind to some of the newer offensive approaches in the NFL, so maybe we'll see a new-and-improved version. His hire should be considered a bit of an upgrade for this offense overall. It will be interesting to see if McCarthy can run a more balanced offense than he typically did in Green Bay.
Wade Phillips out as Rams DC
LB coach Joe Barry considered a favorite to replace him
By: Doug Orth | Jan 6 2020, 6:30 pm

Los Angeles Rams
Rams DC Wade Phillips has been informed he will not be retained, a person with knowledge of the situation said. (LA Times - Gary Klein)

FFToday's Take: It's hard to like this from a fantasy perspective, but HC Sean McVay is believed to want someone who is more willing to adapt to the opponent week-to-week rather than rely so heavily on his scheme. Hopefully, the Rams and higher than Barry, who hasn't had much statistical success in his two two-year stints in Detroit and Washington.
Injury Zach Ertz cleared to play
Rib and kidney issues
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 4 2020, 2:24 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Here's some news eagles fans have been waiting to hear... looks like Zach Ertz has been cleared to play tomorrow .... per league source. (Derrick Gunn on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ertz has been dealing with rib and kidney issues but looks like he's going to suit up. His presence takes the shine off Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins although it's hard to imagine Ertz getting a full workload.
Injury Will Fuller not expected to play
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 4 2020, 7:00 am

Houston Texans
It is still considered a very long shot for #texans WR Will Fuller (groin) to play vs the #bills per sources. (James Palmer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fuller's been spotted at practice this week but it sounds like he's going to miss Saturday's game against the Bills. Expect Keke Coutee and DeAndre Carter to pick up the slack. Neither are attractive DFS plays during Wild Card Weekend.
Injury Zach Ertz yet to be cleared for contact
Rib, lacerated kidney
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 3 2020, 1:43 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
From NFL Now: #Eagles RB Miles Sanders is good to go after praftice today, while TE Zach Ertz has not yet been cleared. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Miles Sanders will play this week while Ertz is trending towards being inactive on Sunday. We'll likely have a better indication of Ertz's true status on Saturday. If he sits, Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins would handle tight end duties and be vialbe DFS options.
Injury Miles Sanders optimistic about playing Sunday
Anticipates practicing Friday; suffered ankle sprain in Week 17
By: Doug Orth | Jan 2 2020, 6:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles do-it-all back Miles Sanders (ankle) is hopeful to practice Friday, and a source says his plan is to play vs. SEA barring a setback. It's a low-ankle injury, so the issue has been inflammation. He is improving. 'He wants to play,' the source said. (ESPN - Jeremy Fowler)

FFToday's Take: Even a limited practice on Friday would be a good sign for Sanders, although it's worth considering the possibility the Eagles will manage his workload on Sunday considering how well Boston Scott has played when he's been given a chance. If the rookie can play, expect something approaching a 60-40 split. Even with a scaled-back workload, Sanders is a threat for 100 total yards and a touchdown.
Injury Will Fuller a gametime decision
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 2 2020, 12:30 pm

Houston Texans
Bill O'Brien on Will Fuller: "I would say that will be a game-time decision. He'll be out there today. We'll see how it goes.' (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fuller sat out Week 17 with a groin injury but seems to be headed in the right direction for suiting up against the Bills on Saturday. If he sits, DeAndre Carter and Keke Coutee would see increased reps.
Injury Cook, Mattison back at practice Wednesday
Top two RBs back for Minnesota
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 1 2020, 2:15 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison are back at practice, with helmets, taking their usual 1st/2nd team reps w the centers during the individual portion. Eric Kendricks was present but sans helmet. No Mackensie Alexander, Andrew Sendejo and Stephen Weatherly at practice. (Courtney Cronin on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like the Vikings will have their top two running backs on the field for their Wildcard matchup against the Saints. New Orleans only gave up 7 rushing TDs to RBs this year but Cook should get the bulk of volume and be a top RB play on the slate.
Injury Low-grade low ankle sprain for Miles Sanders
On track to play in Wild Card Weekend
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 31 2019, 1:38 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
An MRI showed #Eagles RB Miles Sanders has a low-grade low ankle sprain, source said. Inflammation is the issue right now; coach Doug Peterson said his star rookie is "going to be OK," a good sign for Sanders' chances of playing in Sunday's playoff against the #Seahawks (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's a good chance Sanders will be active this week against the Seahawks but how effective he will be is a different story. Boston Scott could have a larger role if Sanders is limited.
Injury T.Y. Hilton played through significant calf tear
WR revealed tear was 2-3 centimeters long
By: Doug Orth | Dec 30 2019, 5:20 pm

Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton reveals he played through a two-centimeter tear in his calf late in the season. (The Athletic - Zak Keefer)

FFToday's Take: Hilton has proved in back-to-back seasons that he is as tough as they come, playing through a high-ankle sprain for most of 2018 as well. However, even though his most recent injuries have nothing to do with his size, a player with his slight frame (5-10, 183) is always going to be a bit more at risk for injury - especially after turning 30 years old. Fantasy owners should consider him a medium-risk WR2 in 2020 drafts.
Injury Evan Engram underwent foot surgery
Expects to be ready for spring after Lisfranc repair
By: Doug Orth | Dec 30 2019, 5:00 pm

New York Giants
Giants TE Evan Engram's foot surgery involved a LisFranc ligament repair. "It wasn’t a full-blown tear, but it needed some fixing." He expects to make a full recovery and should resume training in the spring. (Newsday - Bob Glauber)

FFToday's Take: Engram will enter his fourth season with durability being a huge question mark. After logging 15 games as a rookie, he's played in only 19 of 32 possible games in the last two years, including just eight in 2019. Regardless of whom the Giants hire to coach and/or call plays next season, the likelihood is that Engram will remain the top threat in the passing game.
Injury Darren Waller undergoes thumb surgery
Finished breakout season with 90 catches
By: Doug Orth | Dec 30 2019, 4:50 pm

Oakland Raiders
Darren Waller had thumb surgery today. (The Athletic - Vic Tafur)

FFToday's Take: This procedure is unlikely to be an issue for him when the Raiders begin offseason workouts. Waller's breakout season was amazing in so many ways, and he undoubtedly established himself as a top-five tight end in 2020 drafts. Positive touchdown regression (he only scored three times in 2019) should be working in his favor, but defenses did wise up and force Oakland to go in another direction in the red zone often during the second half of the season.
Browns can Freddie Kitchens
Cleveland seeking 12th head coach since returning in 1999
By: Doug Orth | Dec 30 2019, 4:40 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns fired Freddie Kitchens, per @mortreport and me. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Perhaps one of the worst decisions the Browns made was sticking a first-time head coach with limited experience as a coordinator into a mix that involved as many personalities as Cleveland has. Kitchens made his fair share of bad decisions during his one year in charge and somehow failed to build on the chemistry he seemed to establish with Baker Mayfield in 2018. Expect the Browns to hire a former head coach like Mike McCarthy this time around.
Redskins expected to hire Ron Rivera as HC
Team president Bruce Allen fired
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2019, 9:17 am

Washington Redskins
The Washington Redskins are expected to hire former Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera as their next head coach, barring unforeseen developments, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday. The news comes on the same day that Washington parted ways with team president Bruce Allen. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Redskins have been a perennial struggling organization despite cycling through Mike Shanahan, Jay Gruden and Bill Callahan as head coach since 2010. The Redskins are right to address their leadership at the top as the culture surrounding the club has been a source of frustration for many players over the years.
Giants fire head coach Pat Shurmur
Matt Rhule
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2019, 9:00 am

New York Giants
The New York Giants fired coach Pat Shurmur on Monday after two seasons on the job, but the team is keeping general manager Dave Gettleman. Baylor coach Matt Rhule is a focus of the Giants' coaching search, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Rhule served as an assistant offensive line coach for the Giants in 2012. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With only 9 wins and 23 loses in two seasons with the Giants Shurmur's tenure as head coach comes to an end. GM Dave Gettleman is expected to stay on as the Giants turn their focus to Rhule. The Giants will pick 4th in the upcoming 2020 draft.
Injury Boston Scott has big day, Miles Sanders hurt
Eagles RBs a hobbled unit heading into playoffs
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Dec 29 2019, 9:35 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Boston Scott became the sole running back after Miles Sanders left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury, rushing 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' 34-17, Week 17 win over the Giants, adding four catches for 84 yards on six targets. Running back Jordan Howard, who hadn’t played since Nov. 3. was cleared this week after a shoulder injury but the Eagles obviously did not want to play him. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Howard should be available for the first round of the playoffs, though we may see Scott assume more of the Miles Sanders role if that ankle isn't 100 percent.
Injury Bills resting key starters
Beasley, John Brown, Singletary will sit
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2019, 11:30 am

Buffalo Bills
Source: The #Bills are resting starters today vs. the #Jets. They are locked in as the No. 5 seed and have nothing to gain. Among those out: Cole Beasley, John Brown, Devin Singletary, Tre’Davious White, Dawson Knox (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bills will be rolling out the B team this week against the Jets with Robert Foster leading the receiving group and Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon leading the running back group.
Injury Kyler Murray a true gametime decision
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2019, 7:15 am

Arizona Cardinals
#AZCardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is a true game-time decision today vs the #Rams, source said. Despite AZ promoting QB Drew Anderson, the team has not shut Murray down in Week 17 even with the injury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The call-up of Anderson is an indication the team is truly considered about Murray's status. As a result he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups this week. Brett Hundley would fill in if Murray can't go and would be a downgrade for all of Arizona's skill position players.
Injury Texans expected to rest key starters
Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins expected to sit
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2019, 7:00 am

Houston Texans
Texans expected to rest multiple starters against Titans in advance of likely playoff game next Saturday, currently slated to host Bills. Among key players who could be rested: Deshaun Watson, Laremy Tunsil, Bradley Roby, DeAndre Hopkins. A.J. McCarron would step in for Watson. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's an outside chance the Texans could move to the 3rd seed if the Chiefs lose to the Chargers (1 pm ET start) but otherwise the Texans are locked into the 4 seed. A.J. McCarron is expected to start at quarterback. At receiver expect to see a lot of Keke Coutee and DeAndre Carter. Kenny Stills (hamstring) is questionable.
Injury Leonard Fournette downgraded to Doubtful
Ryquell Armstead expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 28 2019, 11:55 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jags RB Leonard Fournette downgraded to doubtful with an illness. CB A.J. Bouye downgraded to out (wrist) #Jaguars #indvsjax (J.P. Shadrick on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette had been listed as questionable with a neck injury but has since been downgraded. Expect him to be on the inactive list tomorrow. In his absence, Ryquell Armstead should get the start and will be a viable DFS salary saver.
Injury Zach Ertz out for Week 17
Rib and back injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2019, 3:31 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles have ruled out Zach Ertz for Sunday. A few important notes: - Ertz was dealing with the rib injury AND a back injury. - Pederson has had this exact rib injury himself. He understood the pain well. - Pederson insisted that he wouldn’t risk Ertz further injuring himself (James Palmer)

FFToday's Take: Beat writers have been hinting that Ertz wouldn't suit up this week and now we have clarification. With Ertz out, Dallas Goedert is a locked in TE1. Nelson Agholor is also out, meaning Greg Ward and JJ Arcega-Whiteside will start at receiver.
Injury Packers' Jamaal Williams ruled out
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2019, 2:31 pm

Green Bay Packers
Matt LaFleur says the #Packers will probably hold RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) out on Sunday vs. Lions. (Matt Schneidman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Jones out and the Packers playing for a potential No.1 seed, Aaron Jones could be in for a heavy workload. Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin are next up on the depth chart but Jones is a lock for 20+ touches.
Injury Josh Jacobs not expected to play
Skin infection, shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2019, 1:10 pm

Oakland Raiders
Source: #Raiders RB Josh Jacobs, who is dealing with a skin infection and a shoulder injury, is not expected to play on Sunday. In their improbable race to qualify for the playoffs, sounds like Jacobs is unlikely to join them. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Raiders still have an outside chance at the playoffs so they have motivation to put forth their best effort against the Broncos. Expect DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard to handle the running back duties with Washington being the lead back. The Broncos have allowed just 7 rushing touchdowns all year.
Injury Vikings expected to rest starters in Week 17
Cousins, Cook not expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2019, 10:00 am

Minnesota Vikings
While I’m told the Vikings haven’t finalized their plan for Sunday, they’re leaning heavily towards resting a bulk of their starters, including Kirk Cousins, per league source. Team viewing Chicago week as a bye in terms of getting guys rest/healthy for Jan. (Courtney Cronin on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Vikings locked into the 6th seed, there's no reason for Cousins and players nursing injuries to play. Expect Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison to be inactive as well. Sean Mannion will likely be the starter at quarterback with Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah handling the bulk of running back duties.
Injury Jarvis Landry could need hip surgery
Intent on playing Week 17
By: Doug Orth | Dec 26 2019, 5:30 pm

Cleveland Browns
Jarvis Landry says he’ll visit a hip specialist after the decision to determine if he’ll need surgery. Hasn’t considered shutting it down for Bengals game. (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Landry's hip has been an issue for some time now, but it hasn't stopped him from having one of the best seasons of his career. Entering the regular-season finale, he needs 66 more receiving yards to set a new personal best. Owners should continue to view him as a WR2 with a safe floor in Week 17 and in drafts next summer - assuming his hip injury isn't too significant.
