Updating fantasy injury for affecting Week 5 start/sit decisions

Will Christian McCaffrey playing Week 5?

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, McCaffrey is “likely” to play against Arizona on Sunday, but he “might not” be at full strength.

He’s specifically recognized as “questionable” for the Panthers’ late-afternoon Week 4 game against the Cardinals, but ESPN writer David Newton believes he’ll “attempt” to play.

After two straight “DNPs,” McCaffrey makes it appear to be on track to suit up in Week 5. Despite his lack of consistency to begin the season, he’s a “must-start” running back.

Will Alvin Kamara playing Week 5?

Alvin Kamara has begun 2022 slowly, averaging only 6.2 points per game in Half-PPR formats. Although fantasy owners are undoubtedly disappointed with his lack of production thus far, some of it can be attributed to a bothersome rib injury that he appears to have been dealing with all seasons.

Prior to Week 5, Kamara had been a limited practice participant. Despite missing Week 2 due to a rib injury, Kamara still managed 73 total yards in Week 3.

UPDATE: According to ESPN’s Katherine Terrell, Kamara (rib) plans to play in Week 5.

Will Javonte Williams playing Week 5?

Williams injured the posterolateral corner, an area on the outside of the knee that includes ligaments such as the lateral collateral ligament, according to the NFL Network (LCL).

That’s terrible news for the former University of North Carolina star, who is in his second season with the Broncos. Williams entered this season with high expectations after a standout rookie season.

Will Cordarrelle Patterson playing Week 5?

Patterson’s (knee) status for the Falcons’ Week 4 home game against the Browns is listed as “questionable.” He returned to practice on Friday after missing the previous two days for “rest,” according to the Falcons.

He has been a bright spot for the Falcons, entering Week 4 as the overall RB6 in PPR formats. If Tyler Allgeier is unable to travel, his value skyrockets. Patterson would be a low-end RB2/high-end flex, but his chances are cautiously optimistic.
