Below we’ll provide some details about fantasy injury Week 6 of these players Damien Harris, Raheem Mostert, Jonathan Taylor.
Fantasy injury Week 7: Damien Harris, Raheem Mostert, Jonathan Taylor
Harris (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity to end the week before New England’s road game in Cleveland, but he was placed on the inactive list.
In his absence, Rhamondre Stevenson carried the ball 19 times for 76 yards and two touchdowns.
Harris was on the verge of missing multiple games after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 5, but he has recovered much faster than expected. In Week 6, he was truly a game-time decision, and if he was on the verge of returning to action, his Week 7 prospects look even brighter.
His potential return muddles the Patriots’ backfield, as Stevenson’s workload is expected to decrease slightly.
When New England’s initial injury report is released later this week, fantasy owners will hopefully have a better idea of how to manage their RB start-sits.
Harris will have one more day to rest before the Patriots face the Bears on Monday Night Football, so expect some uncertainty heading into the weekend.
The Dolphins released their first injury report of the season on Wednesday, and it comes as no surprise that running back Raheem Mostert was limited in practice.
Mostert is recovering from a knee injury suffered in Week 5. He missed the first practice of the week last week and was limited in the next two.
Because he didn’t have to sit out the first practice, that suggests he’s improving this week. If he does not suffer a setback, he appears to be on track to play and not be limited against the Steelers on Sunday.
Taylor (ankle) was ruled out of the Colts’ Week 6 home game against the Titans, his second consecutive game missed since suffering an ankle injury in Week 4.
Fortunately for the Colts, they’ve won their last two games without Taylor, keeping them in the thick of the AFC South race.
In Taylor’s absence, fellow running backs Deon Jackson (67 percent) and Phillip Lindsay (33 percent) took over, with Nyheim Hines (concussion) also ruled out for Week 6.
Jackson did suffer a quad injury in the Colts’ 34-27 comeback victory over the Jaguars, and his Week 7 status will be closely monitored.
Taylor, who practiced in a limited capacity last week, has a chance to return to game action this weekend in Tennessee. His potential return reduces Jackson’s and Lindsay’s fantasy value, while Hines remains a viable bench option in PPR formats.
