Fantasy Football: Key Injuries (Week 4)
This is the NFL where injuries are part of the game.
Here are the key injuries and the fantasy football ramifications for Week 4.
Saints vs. Dolphins (London)…Jay Ajayi is expected to play after practicing late in the week. Kenny Stills also should play after taking part in practice Friday. Willie Snead (hamstring), coming off of a three-game suspension, was limited in practice on Friday and is likely a game-time decision on Sunday.
Bengals at Browns…Tyler Eifert (back) is out again this week. Tyler Kroft will get the bulk of the tight end duties for Cincinnati.
Bills at Falcons…None.
Jaguars at Jets…Matt Forte (turf toe) has been ruled out of Sunday’s contest, which is good news for Bilal Powell owners.
Lions at Vikings…Kenny Golladay is questionable for the Lions with a gimpy hamstring, he’s likely a game-time decision. Sam Bradford is out again with a knee injury, Case Keenum played well last week, it will be interesting to see if he can do it again.
Panthers at Patriots…None.
Rams at Cowboys…None.
Steelers at Ravens…Ben Watson is questionable with a calf injury, but practiced Friday and is likely to play.
Titans at Texans…Rookie Corey Davis is out with a hamstring again. That means more work for Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker.
Eagles at Chargers…Melvin Gordon is iffy with a knee injury, but practiced Friday and should play.
Giants at Buccaneers…None.
Raiders at Broncos…Michael Crabtree’s status is unknown with a chest injury. He missed practice Friday. Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson will get more snaps if Crabtree can’t go.
49ers at Cardinals…Carlos Hyde (hip) will be a game-time decision on Sunday. Matt Breida will start if Hyde is a no-go.
Colts at Seahawks…Doug Baldwin is questionable with a groin injury. He practiced Friday but will be a game-time decision.
Redskins at Chiefs…Rob Kelley may play despite being questionable with a rib injury. Jamison Crowder looks to be a go after tweaking his hamstring this week. Tight end Jordan Reed has chest, shoulder and toe injuries and will be a game-time decision.
