Starting with news of some players’ delusional injuries, Jonathan Taylor, Mark Andrews, and James Conner are among the names on this week’s injury list.
Fantasy Injury Report: Jonathan Taylor, Mark Andrews and James Conner
Taylor (ankle) missed his third game of the season in Week 9 due to an ankle injury sustained in Week 4. Taylor did not practice last week, and his practice status this week is worth monitoring.
Deon Jackson took the most snaps of any Indianapolis running back in his absence (39), but he was largely ineffective, finishing as the overall RB36 in PPR formats (5.6 FPTS).
Indianapolis has a favorable matchup against a Las Vegas defense that allows the seventh-most FPPG to running backs (23.7), so whoever starts for Indianapolis will be valuable.
Despite his disappointing season, Taylor remains a plug-and-play RB1 if he can return to game action.
- Mark Andrews
UPDATE: According to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, Andrews was among several Ravens players who did not practice on Thursday or Friday.
Andrews (shoulder, knee) was forced to leave last week’s game against the Buccaneers because of a shoulder injury. On Monday, head coach Jon Harbaugh stated that his shoulder injury is not “a major, major thing.”
With a Week 10 bye on the horizon for Baltimore, this could be the game Andrews misses so he can rest for two and a half weeks.
If Andrews does not practice or is listed as “questionable,” owners should plan on starting Isaiah Likely, who had a strong game against the Buccaneers last week.
- James Conner
UPDATE 2: Conner is now ACTIVE.
UPDATE: Late Saturday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Conner is “likely” to play against Seattle, but no decision will be made until after pre-game warmups.
According to beat writer Tyler Drake, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Conner (ribs) is a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.
The veteran running back was listed as “questionable” on the team’s final injury report, which is not surprising.
Conner was listed as “questionable” for last week’s game against the Vikings before being ruled out.
He has practiced in a limited capacity this week, but his rib injury has kept him out of the last three games. If Conner is active, he’s a solid RB2.
