How to handle Bryan Edwards’ injury in Week 8 fantasy football

Bryan Edwards is on the Raiders final injury report for Week 8. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Edwards is INACTIVE for Week 8.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Bryan Edwards is officially listed as questionable for this week’s game against the Cleveland Browns. The rookie has been dealing with a foot and ankle injury since September. He was able to get in three limited practice sessions this week, which is a good sign that he might be active for the first time since Week 3.

Fantasy impact: Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle)

Even if he is active, Edwards is unlikely to contribute much to fantasy lineups. Prior to his injury he had just 99 yards on five catches in three games. He’s been replaced by a recently rejuvenated Nelson Agholor, who has suddenly emerged as the team’s most productive wide receiver, with three touchdowns and 218 yards over the last three games.

Next on the list of most relevant Raiders receivers is slot man Hunter Renfrow, who averages about five targets per game. Still, he’s a marginal fantasy player in most weeks. The main guys in the Raiders’ passing attack for now are Agholor and tight end Darren Waller.
