Hello again! are you ready for playoffs? Hopefully I can help! Here is the injury update for week 14.
Julio Jones (Atlanta Falcons) – Jones was questionable earlier in the week with a hamstring injury and has officially been ruled out for this week. The only player that will benefit from this will be Calvin Ridley who should have an excellent game this week.
D.J. Moore (Carolina Panthers) – Moore will not be taken off of the COVID list in time for Sunday’s game. Moore will be out one more week meaning Curtis Samuel and Robby Anderson will have fantasy value this week and should be starting in your lineup.
Kenny Golladay (Detroit Lions) – Another week without Kenny. Golladay didn’t practice at all this week and will miss this week. Marvin Jones will once again have value and should be a starter.
David Johnson (Houston Texans) – Johnson has been placed on the COVID list and will miss this week’s matchup against the Bears. Duke Johnson will once again take over as the starting RB but doesn’t have much value, especially against the Bears defense. I Would sit Duke Johnson this week if you can.
Antonio Gibson (Washington Football Team) – Gibson will miss this week with a turf toe injury that was suffered in last week’s matchup. J.D. Mckissic will get most of the snaps and should be a starter in any league.
Christian McCaffrey (Carolina Panthers) – CMC is listed as doubtful for this week and Head Coach Matt Rhule stated that he does not expect CMC to play. Mike Davis will take over once again and should do fine.
Ezekiel Elliott (Dallas Cowboys) – Elliott is dealing with a calf injury that has kept him limited all week. There isn’t much news that states that Elliott will miss this week however, I wouldn’t expect a top performance even with a solid matchup against the Bengals.
Josh Jacobs (Las Vegas Raiders) – Head Coach John Gruden stated that he will see how Jacobs is feeling on Saturday before making a decision. Jacobs had back-to-back limited practices to end the week and is looking like he is more likely to play rather than not. Devontae Booker would be the starter if Jacobs is out, however, I would not recommend starting Booker as it is a very tough matchup.
D’Andre Swift (Detroit Lions) – Swift has been dealing with an illness that kept him out of last week’s game. Swift did get in a full practice on Friday that leads me to believe he will play this week unless there is a setback.
Jamison Crowder (New York Jets) – Crowder is dealing with a calf injury and will be a game-time decision. Unfortunately, the Jets play in an afternoon game so make sure to have a backup prepared. Breshad Perriman should be a sneaky play even if Crowder is active.
Frank Gore (New York Jets) – Head Coach Adam Gase said that he expects Gore to play this week. I also expect Gore to play this week but I don’t expect Gore to put up a favorable amount of fantasy points to start in your lineup this week.
Tee Higgins (Cincinnati Bengals) – Higgins has been limited all week but is leaning towards playing this week. Higgins does have a good matchup against the Cowboys but the question mark at QB makes Higgins a risky play this week.
Brandin Cooks (Houston Texans) – Cooks has been limited throughout the week. Cooks should be a solid play this week as he has emerged as the WR 1 for the Texans.
Kenyan Drake (Arizona Cardinals) – Drake was added to the injury report mid-week and has had limited sessions for the last two days. Drake is still expected to play and should have a decent game against the Giants.
DeAndre Hopkins (Arizona Cardinals) – Hopkins missed Thursday’s practice due to soreness but logged in a full practice on Friday implying that he should be good to go by Sunday.
A.J. Brown (Tennessee Titans) – Brown missed practice all week but returned on Friday. Unless Brown has any setbacks, he should be all clear for this week.
