Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Now 2 weeks into a 2-3 week timetable, consider him questionable for Week 7. His absence on Sunday makes WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper more intriguing fantasy fliers.
Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. It's not a good sign coming out of the Week 5 bye. It's also not a surprise, though, after ESPN's Vaughn McClure reported that Sanu would miss 2-3 weeks. He seems unlikely to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. That'd figure to mean more action for WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.
Giants HC Ben McAdoo suggested that his backfield will continue to be a committee. "We have very capable backs we have a lot of confidence in," McAdoo said. "[Paul] Perkins is obviously nicked up. He's a good back. We still believe in him, have a lot of confidence in him. You saw the energy that [Wayne] Gallman brought to the game. Orleans [Darkwa] is a guy we can throw in and be a big, productive runner for us. And Shane [Vereen] is going to play his role." Perkins and Darkwa both put in limited practices on Wednesday, giving them a shot to play this weekend vs. the Chargers. McAdoo added that, "if somebody gets hot, we'll ride him." But if Perkins is active on Sunday, this will be a backfield to avoid in fantasy lineups.
ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his hamstring injury. Atlanta has a Week 5 bye, so Sanu figures to miss a game or 2. He averaged a healthy 7 targets per game over the first 3, so his absence will create extra opportunities for guys like WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.
Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bills with a hamstring injury. With WR Julio Jones also out, Atlanta is down to Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy as the top 2 WRs.
The 49ers have labeled S Jaquiski Tartt questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals because of his concussion. According to Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group, Tartt cleared the league protocol Friday, which would seem to be the last step toward Tartt playing Sunday. Bet on him being there, but we'll update Tartt's status Sunday afternoon.
As expected, Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (knee) is playing today against the Falcons. He has now played through 3 "questionable" tags to start the season. Ansah has played just 45% and 50% of the snaps in the 1st 2 games, though, and thus carries more IDP risk than his huge stat line against the Giants last Monday might suggest.
49ers S Jaquiski Tartt left late in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Rams. He took a shot to the back of his head from a teammate's foot. The Niners deemed him questionable to return with a "head injury," which almost always means a concussion check. Tartt -- who entered the week with a neck issue -- had been filling in for injured S Eric Reid (knee).
49ers safeties Jaquiski Tartt (neck) and Jimmie Ward (hamstring) are both active for tonight's game against the Rams. Both were reportedly expected to start but entered the day officially questionable. If you're looking to use 1 in your IDP lineup, opt for Tartt. The injury situations obviously add risk to both, though.
The 49ers expect to start Jaquiski Tartt (neck) and Jimmie Ward (hamstring) at safety Thursday night against the Rams, according to Pro Football Talk. Both players were limited on the Tuesday and Wednesday injury reports and carry questionable tags into the contest. Tartt would play strong in place of Eric Reid, who's reportedly expected to miss a few games with his sprained PCL. Ward would man the free spot. We'll confirm their game statuses Thursday evening.
49ers S Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is active and will make his season debut today against the Seahawks. He sat out the opener with the injury. Ward will carry upside at full strength, but it's too soon to trust him in IDP lineups -- especially in a negative matchup for DB scoring. His return casts doubt on Jaquiski Tartt's usability in IDP lineups as well.
Bears HC John Fox confirmed on Monday that WR Kevin White is headed to the IR with a fractured scapula suffered in Week 1. It sounds like he's done for the season (and not a candidate for the "designated-to-return" spot). White will be 26 years old and have played in just 5 NFL games when the 2018 season kicks off. His dynasty stock is fading fast. Chicago is now left with Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton and Deonte Thompson at WR. We could see TEs Zach Miller and Dion Sims and RB Tarik Cohen play big passing-game roles the rest of the way.
The Bears believe WR Kevin White suffered a broken scapula (shoulder blade) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd send White to injured reserve and likely end his season. If that's the case, White will have played just 5 games through 3 NFL seasons. It'd also leave the Bears with Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton, Deonte Thompson and Josh Bellamy at WR.
Bears WR Kevin White was ruled out after injuring his shoulder in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Falcons. He hauled in just 2 of 4 targets for 6 yards before exiting. Stay tuned for an update.
Niners DB Jimmie Ward is out for today's game against the Panthers, as expected. He entered the weekend doubtful with a hamstring injury. Ward will make for a risky IDP option until he gets through a game healthy.
Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is active for today's opener against the Cardinals. He was questionable with a knee issue that sidelined him for all of training camp and the preseason. Ansah put in limited workouts this week and presents sack upside whenever on the field. He also presents a lot of risk for IDP owners this week, however, given that we have yet to see him on the field this year.
Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He practiced all week, though, and is expected to play, according to the team's website. We'll confirm his status when the inactives come out. Of course, it's a little tough to trust Ansah after he spent all of training camp and the preseason on the PUP list.
49ers TE George Kittle (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s opener against the Panthers. The rookie could emerge as a spot-start option later this season but shouldn’t be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
