#211 Week 3 Prep: Injuries & News To Watch

Posted on

In today’s Fantasy Life Newsletter we get you ready for Week 3 with all the news you need to know. It's 9/26. Take it away, Peter Overzet…

***

We have a busy day on the injury note with lots of status updates threatening to, dare I say, flip this slate on its head. 

Read on below for all of the latest on injuries and fantasy news that you need to know before setting your lineup. And if you have any specific start/sit questions, be sure to check out our free Week 3 fantasy rankings by Waz, which were posted in yesterday’s newsletter. 


🙏🏼 PLAYING OR EXPECTED TO PLAY

* DeAndre Hopkins (rib) is active, but Dr. Jene Bramel thinks there is some risk here:

* Despite two sprained ankles, the Colts will start Carson Wentz today after no setbacks in practice. 

* Both Odell Beckham Jr. and Kenny Golladay will play today, however Beckham is not expected to be on a pitch count, while Golladay will likely be on one:

* Darnell Mooney, Evan Engram, Ben Roethlisberger, Derek Carr, Noah Fant, Tim Patrick and Trey Sermon

 

⛔ OUT OR NOT EXPECTED TO PLAY

* Dalvin Cook is unlikely to play this afternoon vs. the Seahawks, which leaves the Vikings with just Alexander Mattison and Ameer Abdullah at running back. With the news, Mattison becomes a rock solid RB2 and likely a popular DFS play. 

* Darrell Henderson (ribs) is not expected to play. It will be Sony Michel and Jake Funk carrying the ball for the Rams today vs. that stingy Bucs defensive line. 

* Tee Higgins (shoulder) isn’t out. Both Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd will be very busy.
* Antonio Brown (COVID) did not make the trip to Los Angeles with the Bucs.

* Josh Jacobs is considered doubtful vs. the Dolphins. He’s in the late slate of games, so I wouldn’t risk it. 

* Andy Dalton, Tua Tagovailoa, Diontae Johnson, Anthony Firkser, Marlon Mack, Russell Gage, Rashaad Penny, Tevin Coleman, Antonio Brown, JaMycal Hasty, Elijah Mitchell
