Fantasy Injury Update: Jamison Crowder, Will Dissly and Jonnu Smith for Week 18

SUMMARY

  • Jamison Crowder
  • Will Dissly
  • Jonnu Smith

1. Jamison Crowder

Crowder joined the Bills after spending the previous seven seasons with the Commanders and Jets. The 2015 fourth-round pick has some limitations, such as a lack of work near the goal line (25 career end zone targets), a role restricted to the short range (career 7.5 average depth of target), and shaky durability (at least four missed games three of the last four seasons).

When he’s been healthy, he’s been productive, with a target share of at least 17% in each of the last five seasons.

He has a chance to reclaim a spot in that range this season, but he must first pass Isaiah McKenzie in order to take over as the team’s replacement for Cole Beasley in the slot.

Crowder is 29 years old and has never finished in the top 25 in fantasy, so while his ceiling is limited, Buffalo’s elite, pass-heavy offense makes him worth a late-round flier.

2. Will Dissly

According to John Boyle of the Seahawks’ official website, the Seahawks are still deciding whether Dissly will need surgery to repair his knee injury.

Spin: The exact nature of Dissly’s injury is unknown, but Pete Carroll described it as a contusion. However, Dissly was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, and the possibility of surgery suggests that the issue could be more severe.

He served among a rotation of options at tight end with Seattle this season, and he managed 34 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games.

3. Jonnu Smith

UPDATE (Jan. 08): Smith (concussion) was downgraded and will not play Sunday against the Bills.

UPDATE (Jan. 05): Jonnu Smith (concussion) didn’t participate in practice Wednesday.

He is ruled out for the following match.

Smith (concussion) will not play against the Dolphins on Sunday, according to Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald.

Spin: Fellow tight end Hunter Henry (knee) is listed as questionable, but if Henry is able to play, Smith’s absence may give him more playing time against a Dolphins defense that has allowed 10 tight end touchdowns, which is tied for the most in the league.

Smith’s final chance to play before the season ends will be against the Bills in Week 18.
