Wednesday injury report
Michael Thomas continues to see limited practices. He didn’t get his usual snaps in his first game back in Week 9, so I would like to see him get a full practice in before projecting a full workload.
Alshon Jeffery practiced in full. He may finally be back this week.
Jerry Jeudy missed practice Wednesday. He saw his biggest workload of the season last week, so this might be a rest day, but we’ll see.
Deebo Samuel didn’t practice today with his hamstring injury. He is iffy to return this week.
Adam Humphries remains out with a concussion and won’t play Thursday.
T.Y. Hilton will return and play on Thursday night.
Kenny Golladay has yet to return to practice.
Preston Williams is on I.R. with a foot injury. Jakeem Grant will replace him moving forward.
DNP: John Brown (knee), JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), Jerry Jeudy (shoulder), Darrius Shepherd (shoulder), Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Kenny Golladay (hip)
Limited: N’Keal Harry (concussion), Tim Patrick (hamstring), Diontae Spencer (shoulder), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Sterling Shepard (toe, hip), Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring), Chris Godwin (finger), Scott Miller (hip, groin), Jeff Badet (hamstring), Jamal Agnew (ribs)
Full: Bryan Edwards (ankle), Jarvis Landry (hip), Alshon Jeffery (calf)
Week 9 had its No. 1 fantasy wide receiver early, as Richie James went off in garbage time on Thursday Night Football. He almost was supplanted by Davante Adams and his usual huge game, but James held on to win the big prize.
Jakobi Meyers is finally living up to his promise, as he’s taken over as the patriots No. 1 receiver by a wide margin and finished as the fourth-best PPR wide receiver last week.
Curtis Samuel now has back-to-back big games, and four touchdowns over his last three. His upside has always been great and now he’s getting the touches to let him loose.
Golden Tate’s purgatory is over and he should return to the starting lineup this week against the Eagles.
Adam Humphries remains in concussion protocol to start the week.
Preston Williams is day-to-day with a foot injury. He has a sprain and his status is up in the air for this week.
T.Y. Hilton is on track to play on Thursday night.
Laviska Shenault Jr. left last week’s game with a hamstring injury, but has a chance to play this week agianst the Packers.
Week 10 byes
Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets
Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, Tyreek Hill, and Jamison Crowder won’t be available.
DeVante Parker, Dolphins
If Preston Williams is out this week, Parker makes for a strong play against the Chargers. Parker caught six passes from Tua Tagovailoa last week and the rookie looked so much better than his debut that it’s hard not to like this passing game moving forward.
Rashard Higgins, Browns
The Browns would rather run the ball than throw it, but they should be forced to throw it against the Texans, who should be able to put up points. Higgins is the No. 2 receiver now that Odell Beckham Jr. is out for the season and he and Mayfield have always had a strong connection.
