Matt Breida, RB, Shoulder: Breida played through this same injury last week and was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. My take: Will play, start him — he’s good to go. Raheem Mostert? I wouldn’t worry too much about that little guy. I think that was a game dependent outlier performance. Kyle Juszczyk though? I don’t trust anyone with that many consonants in a row. Just seems like witchcraft.
Robby Anderson, WR, Hamstring: Teammate Quincy Enunwa has already been ruled out so the fact that Terrelle Pryor and Anderson missed practice on Wednesday is a bit concerning. Even more concerning, however, is that this is a hamstring injury. My take: Will play, but don’t start him. He will probably be a bit limited.
Isaiah Crowell, RB, Foot: Who bet on Crowell being the single-game rushing leader for 2018? Unfortunately, he followed that up 219 rushing yard game with a 40 yard disappointment.in his most recent game. My take: Will play; start him. He played last week with an ankle injury — he’ll hope for better results though.
Jack Doyle, TE, Hip: Being that he is listed as doubtful and hasn’t practice this week yet, I wouldn’t count on him. My take: Won’t play.
Evan Engram, TE, Knee: Engram is hoping to play in his first game since week 3. He has an extra day of rest with the Giants having a Monday night game in Atlanta. My take: Will play, get him back in your line-ups. If you read my waiver articled from Monday, you know that I’m predicting a big game from Eli Manning.
Leonard Fournette, RB, Hamstring: No practice for Fournette on Wednesday, but Jaguars coach Doug Merrone thinks Fournette will be back practicing on Thursday. To what extent though? If he’s limited he might be out again. My take: Won’t play. However, even if he does play — I’m thinking he’ll be on a limited snap count.
Pierre Garcon, WR, Shoulder: He hasn’t missed a game all season though his stats barely show it. He has yet to reach double-digit fantasy points this year. My take: Will play, but you should bench him until he can show some better production.
Ted Ginn, WR, Knee: Two missed games, a bye week and still Ginn hasn’t practiced this week. My take: Won’t play. Even if he does, he needs more time to prove he’s worth of a spot in your line-up.
DeAndre Hopkins/Will Fuller/Keke Coutee, WR: They’re just giving their receivers a bit of extra rest time. I can’t keep wasting e-ink on them every week. My take: They’ll all play. They’ll always play.
Ryan Grant, WR, Ankle: Grant had double-digit fantasy games in 4 of his 5 starts until he had to leave his week 6 game with this injury. My take: Won’t play. If he does — with T.Y. Hilton back you’d have to believe Grant would lose some of his targets to Andrew Luck’s ‘favorite target.
George Kittle, TE, Knee: Kittle played with this injury last week too, however he didn’t have a great game with only 4 receptions and 30 yards. My take: Will play, start him. Hopefully last week was just a tough matchup for him and he can get back to a double-digit fantasy game.
Greg Olsen, TE, Foot: Olsen returned to play in week 6 after breaking his foot back in week 1. I think Olsen’s mileage and injury this year will make him show up in this column every week. My take: Will play; start him.
Adrian Peterson, RB Ankle: All Day had three injuries last week and still played. He’s 33 with 138 games under his belt — he’ll probably be here every week due to maintenance breaks. My take: Will play; Flex him.
Paul Richardson, WR, Shoulder: Richardson didn’t practice at this point last week either yet he still played. He hasn’t exactly been blowing up the score sheets, but he’s averaged 10.5 fantasy points over his last 4 games. My take: Will play; bench him unless you’re desperate. I think he could be do for a breakout game soon — but it’s too hard to predict when that’ll be.
Calvin Ridley/Mohamed Sanu WR: With an upcoming Monday night game I think the Falcons are using this extra day of rest as a maintenance day for Robinson and Mohamed Sanu. My take: Will play, flex him if necessary. :
Allen Robinson, WR, Groin: The fact that he was limited on Wednesday leads me to believe he’ll be ready to go on Sunday. My take: Will play; start him. He’s one of Mitchell Trubisky’s favorite targets.
C.J. Uzomah, TE, Shoulder: No Tyler Eifert, no Tyler Kroft, no chance C.J. Uzomah misses this game. My take: Will play; start him against a Chiefs team that has allowed an average of 15.7 fantasy points per game to opposing TEs.
Carson Wentz, QB, Back: With Wentz missing a major chunk of last season and the first two weeks of this season the Eagles will play it safe with any minor injury Wentz suffers. My take: Will play; start him.
T.J. Yeldon, RB, Ankle: I don’t think we’ll see Fournette which makes Yeldon more likely to go in my opinion. My take: Will play; start him — even if Fournette does play because he’ll be limited.
