The Week 7 injury report is a little shorter than usual this time around. However, there are a few names and situations for Sunday’s games that will definitely have a fantasy impact.
The Jets have said that quarterback Sam Darnold will play this week. Not that you’d be starting him, but his return does spell good news for Jamison Crowder. Unfortunately, Crowder is also questionable, and he’s looking more like a game-time decision.
Joe Mixon is out for the Bengals. Gio Bernard will start in his place, and makes for a decent fantasy play against the Browns. The Niners won’t have Raheem Mostert, and further muddling their running back situation is Jeffery Wilson’s calf injury that has him questionable. The Chargers are expected to have Justin Jackson in the lineup this week.
No Michael Thomas for the Saints or John Brown for the Bills. Other notable names at receiver include Curtis Samuel and Julian Edelman.
As always, keep an eye on the news Sunday morning to make double sure the players in your lineup are indeed playing.
