Chris Carson Gets In Limited Practice
Chris Carson was able to get in a limited practice Thursday, putting him right in line to tote the rock as the Seattle lead back come Monday night. His finger ailment appears to be truly of the minor variety. Even in a tough matchup and with Rashaad Penny gaining steam, Carson is a volume-based RB2.
Smith’s career in jeopardy
Alex Smith has remained hospitalized after his brutal broken leg and has had an infection from the multiple surgeries. This doesn’t look good for Smith’s career.
Goodwin set to return
After taking some time off to deal with depression and anxiety, Marquise Goodwin is back at practice and set to return this week.
Trubisky should be good to go
Mitchell Trubisky is now practicing in full and should be good to go for this week’s game against the Rams after missing two games. We will see how well the Bears can keep the Rams down, but in all likelyhood Trubisky may be playing from behind.
Darnold is back
Sam Darnold is set to make his return this week against a Bills defense that has been really good this season. It’ll be a tough matchup and he is not a good streaming option.
Hamilton to take over slot
Dynasty darling, DaeSean Hamilton is set to take over slot duties with Emmanuel Sanders now out for the season. This offense might stutter a little bit and we will need to see this offense before recommending him or Tim Patrick as anything more than good matchup dart throws.
Sanders hurt in practice
UPDATE: He has suffered a torn achilles and is done for the season.
Emmanuel Sanders rolled his ankle in practice and his availability for this week is now in doubt. If out, Courtland Sutton could be a target hog. It’s hard to speculate on Sanders just yet, though.
D’onta Foreman Activated Off PUP
Houston has activated 2017 3rd round pick D’onta Foreman from the PUP list. While there is theoretically some handcuff potential given Alfred Blue has posted the quietest 128 carries in NFL history, there is little reason to expect Foreman makes a major impact down the stretch. Lamar Miller has finally found his niche in the Houston backfield in Year 3, and there is little reason to believe the red-hot Texans change their formula. Foreman remains a dynasty stash but a redraft afterthought.
Exactly zero people are surprised. This really opens the door more for speedster Robert Foster and Zay Jones (who has a great slot matchup this week against the Jets)
Conner to miss week 14
The timing couldn’t be worse. Conner owners who let out a collective gasp when he left the field on Sunday, with what was being called a contusion at the time, had their fear come to life. He will miss at least this weeks game and we will have to pray that’s it. Rookie Jaylen Samuels should get the bulk of the work with Steven Ridley mixed in.
Colt fractures Fibula
It was a short lived stay as the starting quarterback of the Washington Resskins as McCoy fractured his fibula on a play where he took off running on Monday night. He will be out for the season which is better than what is usually done to a colt that breaks their leg. Next up Mark Sanchez. You read that correctly.
Green to have season ending surgery
He came back to the joy of fantasy owners and quickly exited with an injury. Green now will have season ending surgery on torn ligaments in his toe. He’s expected to be out 3-4 months. And his owners are expected to be eliminated from the playoffs.
