Thursday injury report
Davante Adams didn’t practice after getting a limited practice on Wednesday. He’ll likely give it a go Friday to see if he can play.
Kenny Golladay also got a limited practice in Wednesday, but didn’t practice on Thursday. That’s a bad sign for his return to the field.
Danny Amendola remains out of practice while Marvin Jones returned and was limited.
A.J. Brown didn’t practice, but Thursday’s been his usual rest day this season.
Calvin Ridley was limited and appears to be on track to return this week.
Adam Humphries is still out with a concussion.
Allen Lazard was limited again. He should be very close to returning.
DNP: Davante Adams (ankle), Danny Amendola (hip), Kenny Golladay (hip), Kenny Stills (back), John Hightower (illness), J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (illness), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), A.J. Brown (knee), Adam Humphries (concussion)
Limited: Calvin Ridley (foot), Tre’Quan Smith (concussion), Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Marvin Jones (knee), Allen Lazard (core), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Vyncint Smith (groin), Collin Johnson (hamstring)
Full: Sammy Watkins (hamstring), Jarvis Landry (hip), JuJu Smith-Schuster (not injury related), Chris Godwin (finger), Scott Miller (hip, groin)
Wednesday injury report
Kenny Golladay returned to a limited practice, giving him a chance to suit up against the Panthers.
Both Danny Amendola and Marvin Jones Jr. were unable to practice on Wednesday. Their Thursday designations should give us a better idea of their chances to play this week.
Mecole Hardman remains on the Covid-19 list and didn’t practice Wednesday while Sammy Watkins returned to a full practice.
Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were limited in practice. Adams is nursing an ankle injury he was able to play through last week, while Lazard is recovering from core muscle surgery. Both have a decent chance of playing this week.
Tyler Lockett is listed as questionable, but is expected to play against the Cardinals on TNF.
DNP: Tre’Quan Smith (concussion), Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Danny Amendola (hip), Marvin Jones (knee), Kenny Stills (back), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Adam Humphries (concussion)
Limited: Calvin Ridley (foot), Kenny Golladay (hip), Davante Adams (ankle), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Vyncint Smith (groin), Collin Johnson (hamstring)
Full: Jamal Agnew (ribs), Sammy Watkins (hamstring), Jarvis Landry (hip)
In Week 10 the Bills-Cardinals game lived up to fantasy expectations by giving us the Top 3 PPR fantasy wide receivers, but the No. 1 receiver isn’t who you would think, as Cole Beasley took the top prize and DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs were next in line. The Seahawks and Cardinals matchup on Thursday night, giving us another shot at similar wide receiver play.
Amazingly, Diggs already has over 900 yards and over 100 targets through nine weeks. The Bills went all in on Josh Allen and it is very much paying off so far.
Ben Roethlisberger managed to give all three of their receivers a touchdown and plenty of fantasy points as all three finished in the Top-12 in PPR scoring this week. We can’t expect that each week, but it does show us that Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and JuJu Smith-Schuster have enough upside for each to be considered as must starts each week.
Kenny Golladay didn’t practice at all last week, so he’ll be iffy once again.
John Brown left last week with an ankle injury, but does get a bye to heal.
Tre’Quan Smith will be in concussion protocol this week.
We haven’t really had a chance to see the Browns offense without Odell Beckham Jr. due to the cray wind in Cleveland. But if they can have a normal weather day this week against the Eagles poor pass defense, Landry should be in store for big usage and better production.
Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams
Reynolds has been seeing more work than Robert Woods of late, as they seem to be about equal in their chances of seeing a target at this point. He’s not a smash play against the Buccaneers, but he’s someone you can start and know he’s going to see work in a good offense.
