Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is inactive, leaving RBs Patrick Taylor and Kenyan Drake behind Jones. There’s certainly a chance that Jones dominates work today, but the Packers might also limit his work in his first action since Week 11. He carries a wide range of outcomes this week: a RB3-level floor to a RB1-level ceiling.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon (thumb) is not expected to play against the Bucs today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'll leave Green Bay's backfield to Aaron Jones, Patrick Taylor, and Kenyan Drake, who was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday. It's uncertain how big a workload the Packers are willing to give Jones in his first game since Week 11, but Dillon's absence certainly adds upside to Jones' fantasy profile.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon missed his second straight practice on Thursday and told the media that he has a broken thumb. OC Adam Stenavich said that the team is still figuring out whether Dillon can play vs. the Bucs this weekend. "It makes it harder to catch the ball and things like that, but if you limit the things he does, it can be done," Stenavich said. We'll keep an eye on Dillon's status, as well as Aaron Jones (knee), who remained limited in Thursday's practice. The Packers also have RB Patrick Taylor on the active roster and RB Kenyan Drake on the practice squad.

The Packers have elevated RB Kenyan Drake from the practice squad for tonight's game against the Giants. He joins AJ Dillon and Patrick Taylor on the roster for a game RB Aaron Jones is expected to miss. We're not expecting a lot of work for Drake in a backfield that has leaned heavily on Dillon when Jones is out.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards left to get checked for a concussion in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. That leaves the backfield to Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake. We'll update Edwards' status when we know more.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier this week that it "shouldn’t result in a lengthy absence” for Hill, so we’ll see if he can make it back for Week 4. Gus Edwards should operate as Baltimore’s clear lead back this weekend, with RBs Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake behind him.

Ravens RB Justice Hill has a toe injury that "could keep him out of the Week 3 matchup with the Colts," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Fowler adds that it "shouldn’t result in a lengthy absence." That explains why Baltimore added RB Kenyan Drake earlier today. We'll keep an eye on Hill's status, but fantasy owners should be making other Week 3 plans. If Hill misses the Colts game, we'd expect Gus Edwards to handle most of the RB carries.

The Ravens signed RB Kenyan Drake to the practice squad. He played 12 games for Baltimore last year, averaging a solid 4.4 yards per carry on 109 attempts. We'll see if Drake gets the nod over Melvin Gordon as Baltimore's No. 3 RB this weekend. For now, Drake is only worth stashing in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

The Colts have released RB Kenyan Drake. With RB Jonathan Taylor's status still unresolved, this just signals that Drake failed to beat out RBs Deon Jackson or Evan Hull. Zack Moss remains out with a wrist injury. We should know more about Taylor's status this week and will certainly keep watching the whole situation.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Colts have given RB Jonathan Taylor permission to seek a trade. He adds that "conversations to find potential landing spots are ongoing." Although the RB market is tough everywhere, we'd be surprised if the Colts and Taylor can't find a suitor. Of course, cost will be a huge factor -- potentially both in trade terms and Taylor's contract demands. Exactly where he lands will have a huge fantasy impact: on Taylor's outlook, on the Colts' remaining RB depth chart, and on any new backfield mates. We'll be watching closely for developments here.

Colts RB Deon Jackson missed Thursday's practice with a quad injury and is expected to sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Bills, according to the team website. Indy, of course, was already without RB Zack Moss (wrist) and RB Jonathan Taylor (feelings, ankle?). That leaves recent signee Kenyan Drake and fifth-round rookie Evan Hull as the top healthy competitors for playing time. We'll see how long Jackson remains out. Taylor has been the only Colts back in draftable range in our RB rankings, but he has fallen during his training-camp absence. It's a tough situation to buy into at all in current fantasy football drafts. Indy also signed RB Jason Huntley this week.

The Colts signed RB Kenyan Drake to a one-year deal. In theory, he adds backfield depth with Jonathan Taylor (PUP) and Zack Moss (broken arm) sidelined. The 29-year-old performed decently as a rusher last year in Baltimore (109-482-4). Even if the Colts trade Taylor, Drake is an unlikely fantasy factor.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins will not play against the Bengals today "and instead will begin focusing on next weekend’s wild-card game." Dobbins was not listed on this week's injury report but had the August 2021 ACL tear and surgery on that same knee this October. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback over the past couple of days, Dobbins should be busy in next weekend's Wild Card game. His absence today figures to leave Gus Edwards as Baltimore's lead ball carrier, with Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake behind him.
