Is Odell Beckham Jr. taking part in Week 3?

UPDATE: OBJ appears to be like like he’ll be all set to go on Sunday in opposition to the Bears. In response to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the Browns predict him to have the ability to make his season debut.

UPDATE 2: OBJ wasn’t even on the Browns ultimate damage report, indicating he might be beginning this week.

He practiced in full Wednesday, and his arrival could not come at a greater time with Jarvis Landry (knee) already being dominated out for a few weeks. All indicators level towards Beckham making his return for the primary time since his ACL tear a season in the past.

Diontae Johnson damage replace

UPDATE: Johnson missed apply on Thursday and is reportedly trending towards to being extra “uncertain” than “questionable” in line with native media experiences.

UPDATE 2: Johnson has been formally dominated “out” for Sunday’s recreation.

Johnson (knee) didn’t apply Wednesday, and he’ll seemingly carry a “questionable” designation into Week 3. He is all the time a must-start if wholesome, particularly in PPR leagues. Nevertheless, if he is out, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool ought to see much more targets their manner. All three have been closely focused in a pass-happy offense, so they need to be in your lineups if Johnson is out in opposition to a foul Bengals’ protection. Past that, James Washington attracts flex consideration on this case, and TEs Pat Freiermuth and Eric Ebron may see extra targets (however not be value beginning in most leagues).

For now, we ranked Johnson as if he will be lively. He is our WR23 in PPR and WR25 in commonplace leagues.

Amari Cooper damage replace

UPDATE: Cooper didn’t apply on Thursday, which is clearly by no means a great signal. The excellent news is he’ll have an additional day because the Cowboys do not play till Monday, so we’ll have to watch this transferring foward.

UPDATE 2: Cooper is not even on the Cowboys ultimate damage report, indicating he’ll begin on Monday.

Cooper suffered a rib damage late in his Week 2 recreation however was capable of stroll off beneath his personal energy. Jerry Jones mentioned he is “hopeful’ Cooper can play in Week 3, and Cooper appears to be trending towards being accessible. It helps that Cooper would not play till Monday night time, so he’ll have an additional day to heal up. He is a must-start if he is lively, however be sure to place him in your flex spot. That manner, if he is dominated inactive after Sunday, you will have the pliability to play a working again or extensive receiver (or tight finish in case you’re determined sufficient). In case your staff has three stable RBs that you understand you wish to begin (one within the flex spot), go seize Cedrick Wilson, Jalen Reagor, or Quez Watkins and sub one in at WR if wanted.

For Week 3, Cooper is our WR21 in commonplace and WR19 in PPR. The Eagles’ protection appears to be like fairly spectacular by way of two weeks, so this may very well be a recreation like Dallas had in opposition to the Chargers — low scoring — or all an-out shootout. That mentioned, he has boom-or-bust potential.
