There are a couple key injury situations at running back this week that will definitely impact fantasy football decisions. Dallas will be making a game-time decision about Ezekiel Elliott as his hamstring injury could keep him out of action this week. If he can’t go, Tony Pollard would take over. The Seahawks will be rolling with DeeJay Dallas again this week with both Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde out. The Raiders are expected to have Josh Jacobs in action, despite his questionable designation.
We’ll finally see Michael Thomas return to the field this week. He’s been out since Week 1. The Saints offense should have a full boat of its playmakers for a big game against the Buccaneers. Speaking of that game, Chris Godwin will most likely play for the Bucs after missing last week with a hand injury. Sammy Watkins will miss his fourth game in a row this week.
As always, be sure to check the news Sunday morning before making your final lineup decisions.
