All are listed as “questionable” due to numerous accidents, and discovering updates on their energetic/inactive statuses will probably be paramount all through the day on Sunday.
We’ll be offering the newest information beneath proper up till recreation time, so test again right here and on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. For updates on banged-up WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Terry McLaurin, and Christian Kirk, click on right here (hyperlink coming quickly), and for Week Four climate updates, go right here.
Is Joe Mixon taking part in Week 4?
Mixon practiced in full all week, however he was a late add to the harm report due to a chest harm. Bengals beat author Tyler Dragon mentioned the “perception” is that Mixon will play, however clearly fantasy homeowners needs to be prepared with potential replacements if Mixon is inactive for Cincinnati’s early-afternoon recreation in opposition to the Jaguars.
Giovani Bernard would fill in for Mixon and see a lot of the Bengals’ RB touches. He is confirmed up to now that he can put up RB2-caliber numbers, so he is value beginning on this neutral-to-favorable matchup. If Mixon is energetic, assume he’ll see near a full load and maintain him in your lineups.
Is Chris Carson taking part in Week 4?
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll mentioned Carson (knee) had an “wonderful week” of apply, which might seemingly point out that he’ll swimsuit up on Sunday afternoon in opposition to the Dolphins.
Backup Carlos Hyde (shoulder) can be “questionable,” so there are a whole lot of potentialities as to what may occur right here. If Carson is energetic, anticipate him to see 15-plus touches and be a stable RB1. If Carson is out and Hyde is energetic, hearth up Hyde as an RB2. If each are out, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas would share backfield touches and be in play as flexes (with Homer having extra worth in PPR codecs).
Kareem Hunt harm replace
Hunt (groin) was restricted in apply late within the week, although it has been reported that his groin harm “is not believed to be critical.” He is anticipated to attempt to play in Sunday’s early-afternoon recreation in opposition to Dallas, however nothing will probably be official till he checks out the harm in pre-game warmups.
If Hunt cannot go, Nick Chubb would seemingly see near 25 touches and be much more concerned within the receiving recreation. D’Ernest Johnson would function as his backup, however it will be the Chubb present in Dallas. If Hunt is energetic, it is honest to fret about him aggravating the harm and exiting early, so the additional cautious transfer can be to maintain him in your bench. Nevertheless, if a staff is keen to place a participant on the market, it is often secure to start out him in your fantasy lineup.
Zack Moss harm information
Moss (toe) returned to apply on a restricted foundation this week and is “questionable” for Sunday’s late-afternoon recreation in opposition to the Raiders.
It appears seemingly Moss will return this week, which makes life tough on each his homeowners and homeowners of Devin Singletary. The Raiders have been the worst staff within the NFL in opposition to RBs this yr, so it is tempting to say play each, however neither has appeared significantly good, and given Moss’s ailment, it is powerful to know simply how a lot he’ll play. At this level, each appear like high-end flexes, with Moss having extra worth in customary leagues and Singletary having extra worth in PPR codecs.
