How to handle Jamison Crowder injury in Week 14 fantasy football

Jamison Crowder is on the Jets final injury report for Week 14. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Jamison Crowder is ACTIVE for Week 14. It is still unclear how much he will play, but he is at least active for the game.

Game day update: Crowder’s status is unclear for Sunday, but ESPN’s Rich Cimini suggested the Jets have flexibility to dress him as an emergency WR. That means even if he is active, it’s possible we see him as a decoy or just not playing at all. Barring any updates, consider fantasy football alternatives this week.

Jamison Crowder was a late addition to the official injury report this week for the New York Jets. The veteran wide receiver came up with a calf injury on Thursday, which downgraded his status in practice that day to limited. He then sat out Friday’s session. The team has officially listed him as questionable. We may not know for sure until Sunday, but late week injuries like that are never a good sign.

Fantasy impact: Jamison Crowder (calf)

Crowder caught five passes on seven targets last week against the Raiders. More importantly, he had two touchdowns in that one. Working mostly out of the slot, he and quarterback Sam Darnold have forged a nice connection this season, at least when they’re both on the field at the same time.

If Crowder can’t go against the Seahawks on Sunday, that thrusts Breshad Perriman into the No. 1 role, since Denzel Mims is out this week too. Perriman is worth some consideration for fantasy lineups. Another guy who might be worth a flyer is Braxton Berrios, since he would likely take over slot duties with Crowder out. Darnold tends to favor his slot receivers.
