It’s Week 12, and there are a few injury situations that you need to be aware of before locking your fantasy football lineups this weekend. Let’s get right into it.
The Dolphins downgraded quarterback Tua Tagovailoa from questionable to doubtful on Saturday. While that move doesn’t automatically disqualify him, it bodes well for Ryan Fitzpatrick starting in his place, and worth a spot in lineups against the Jets this week. You’ll see Philip Rivers on the list as questionable, but not to worry—he’ll be good to go for his 239th consecutive start.
There’s more confusion in the Dolphins’ lineup in the backfield. Salvon Ahmed has been ruled out, and we’re still waiting to find out if they’ll have Myles Gaskin back in action this week. Christian McCaffrey will not play this week, but the Panthers will have Mike Davis as their No. 1 this week, and worth a spot in your lineup.
You’ll want to keep an eye on Julio Jones too. He was forced out of last week’s game with the same hamstring injury that’s still bothering him this week. Marquez Valdes-Scantling was added to the injury report later in the week. If he can’t play, Allen Lazard has appeal as a WR2.
As always, check the news on Sunday morning before making your final lineup decisions. Good luck!
