Sep 16 update: Andy Isabella is out for Week 2. He’ll join fellow wide receiver Rondale Moore, who is also out. Greg Dortch and Marquise Brown should be heavily targeted.
Sep 15 update: Andy Isabella wasn’t seen at practice on Thursday. If he’s a DNP on the injury report, the odds aren’t great for him to play this week.
It is unclear why Andy Isabella isn’t practicing on Wednesday, but with so many injuries at the position, his status for Week 2 is important. Beat writer Darren Urban noted that Zach Ertz, Rondale Moore and Isabella were’t practicing and when you add in the absence of DeAndre Hopkins, they are thin at the position.
It was also reported that the team has been bringing in wide receivers for workouts, which could point to Isabella’s status being unknown.
Fantasy football implications
Isabella didn’t do much in Week 1, as the Chiefs trounced the Cardinals, but he was one of only four wide receivers who saw work on Sunday afternoon. If Isabella and Moore can’t go, we should continue to see a good amount of work for Greg Dortch, who served as the slot receiver in Week 1. Dortch did well in that spot, catching seven of nine targets for 63 yards. He could be a useful PPR flex while injuries thin out the receiver core
