Dalvin Cook dinner harm replace

UPDATE: Cook dinner didn’t follow on Thursday. We’re assuming he will play based mostly on Mike Zimmer’s feedback, however we’ll must control him till Sunday.

UPDATE 2: Cook dinner did not follow on Friday and might be a game-time resolution for Sunday’s sport.

Cook dinner has been spectacular this 12 months, however the harm bug struck him once more in Week 2. He has a sprained ankle, however Vikings aren’t apprehensive about his standing. Mike Zimmer stated his ailment will not have an effect on his utilization as a result of “it is time to win some video games.” After all, it is nice information for Cook dinner fantasy homeowners (for now) that he’ll proceed to be a workhorse, however there’s additionally the prospect he’ll worsen his harm.

Is Josh Jacobs enjoying Week 3?

UPDATE: Jacobs wore a non-contact jersey within the early portion of follow on Thursday. Take into account {that a} blended bag for his Week 3 prospects.

UPDATE 2: Jacobs is formally “uncertain” for Sunday’s sport.

Josh Jacobs continues to be nursing a toe and ankle harm that stored him out of Week 2 and has held him out of shape up to now this week. The Raiders are 2-0 and face Jacoby Brissett and the Dolphins in Week 3. This needs to be a winnable sport with out Jacobs, and Jon Gruden has made it some extent to precise his perception in Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber. Possibly you do not consider in Barber, however we’ve got to take note of that Gruden does.

It is now a 17-game season, so we may begin to see gamers sit extra usually when they’re on the unsuitable aspect of “questionable.” We do not know for certain if Jacobs might be out, nevertheless it’s clearly not trying nice. We’ll proceed to replace his part of this text if one thing adjustments.

We’ll make changes to our rankings if Jacobs is out, however assuming he is enjoying, he is our RB22 in commonplace and RB28 in PPR. If he cannot go, Kenyan Drake is enticing in PPR leagues.

Darrell Henderson harm replace

UPDATE: Henderson didn’t follow all week and is formally “questionable” for Sunday’s sport.

Henderson (ribs) didn’t follow on Wednesday, and coach Sean McVay stated the Rams plan to be additional protected with their RBs however did not rule him out simply but. Heading right into a matchup with arguably the perfect front-seven in soccer (vs. Buccaneers), Henderson is a possible bust week even when he does play.

If he does miss Week 3, Sony Michel ought to dominate L.A.’s RB touches, nevertheless it’s powerful to suppose the Rams will run the ball with excessive frequency. They’re extra prone to do what Dallas did towards Tampa Bay in Week 1 — air it out early and sometimes. So, irrespective of who’s at RB, we do not like their probabilities.

In our commonplace RB rankings, we rank Henderson at RB39 and Michel at RB45. In PPR rankings, we’ve got Henderson at RB44 and Michel at RB46.

Trey Sermon harm replace

UPDATE: 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan stated early Thursday that Sermon is “on a very good path” towards enjoying in Week 3.

UPDATE 2: Sermon will not be on the 49ers closing harm report, indicating he’ll begin on Sunday evening.

Sermon (concussion) was restricted at follow Wednesday. This truthfully is sweet information, as concussions vary from very delicate to extreme. If his concussion protocols are going effectively sufficient for him to follow in any capability, that appears to level towards him enjoying in Week 3. Clearly, this might change. With JaMycal Hasty (ankle) out, and Elijah Mitchell coping with a shoulder harm (see under), it may lastly be time for Sermon to have a task within the offense.

Nevertheless, the key phrase is — may. We nonetheless cannot mission that, so we’ve got him because the RB57 in PPR and RB56 in commonplace for Sunday evening’s sport towards Inexperienced Bay.

UPDATE 2: Mitchell is formally “uncertain” for Sunday evening’s sport.

Mitchell (shoulder) missed follow Wednesday, however after ending the sport in Week 2, he appears prone to swimsuit towards the Packers. He appears to have a agency grip on the 49ers’ main RB function (at the very least as a lot as attainable within the RBBC). We’ll have to remain tuned for extra updates, however he is positively the man you need to play in that backfield if he is obtainable.

He is our RB19 in commonplace and RB18 in PPR dealing with a nasty Packers protection. If he is inactive, certainly Trey Sermon is the subsequent man in line, proper?
