Game status: Both Edelman and Harry are ACTIVE for Week 3.

Game day update: Both Edelman (source) and Harry (source) were on the field during pre-game warmups doing drills. We now await word on the inactive report. Both are likely to play, but we’ll know for sure at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Both Julian Edelman and N’Keal Harry are listed as questionable on the official injury report this week. Harry’s listed with an ankle injury, and Edelman is dealing with a knee issue. However, the New England Patriots are expected to have both players in the lineup when the game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Fantasy impact: Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry injuries

Edelman and quarterback Cam Newton have forged a quick connection in the Patriots offense. He had a huge game last week, catching eight passes on 11 targets for 179 yards. Harry’s seen his role in the offense expand over the first two weeks of the season, as Newton has looked to him one more throws down the field. After posting 39 yards in the opener, Harry put up 72 yards on eight catches last week.

Both present attractive options this week against the Raiders. Las Vegas is allowing a catch rate of nearly 60 percent to opposing receivers, and the Panthers were able to put up 211 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 1. Edelman is worth a spot in the second or third receiver position in your lineups this week, and Harry looks like a good flex play.
