This week’s injury report is a long one, with a lot of names who will certainly have a big impact on fantasy football lineups for Week 3.
Let’s start with the running backs. The Raiders listed Josh Jacobs as questionable this week, and he sat out practice all week until Friday. He is expected to play, but you’ll want to keep an eye on the situation as they travel to New England. Cam Akers is out for the Rams, leaving fantasy owners with a frustrating decision to make between Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson (though Henderson is the favorite to get more work this week). Jerick McKinnon is the name to know with Mostert out for the Niners this week.
The Raiders also listed tight end Darren Waller as questionable this week. That too looks like a workload management situation, as he was able to practice Friday. He has a tough matchup, but he’s far and away the top receiving option on the team, especially with Henry Ruggs out this week.
It’s a brutal list of injuries at wide receiver this week, with a couple of top names looking like game-time decisions. If Julio Jones can’t go, look for Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage to carry most of the burden for the Falcons; they might anyway, if Jones is relegated to a decoy role because of his injuries. The Packers may be without Davante Adams this week, and the Broncos are likely going to have to make a decision Sunday about Jerry Jeudy’s status.
