NFL Fantasy Football: Week 3 injury report

We are supplying information on the latest and most important injuries across the NFL and letting you know how it could affect your fantasy football team.

Make sure your fantasy football lineups are adjusted in case you have a player on the Week 3 injury report. You don’t want to be starting a player who is doubtful or out for this week. So let’s check the Week 3 injury report to see which notable players will suit up or are in danger of missing this week’s action.

Quarterbacks

Colts QB Andrew Luck practiced in full.

The Spin: Luck is going to play and if you have him, you’re starting him.

Bears QB Jay Cutler did not participate in practice and is listed as doubtful.

The Spin: Cutler is not going to play on Sunday Night Football and Brian Hoyer will start. I’m not even 100 percent sure if Cutler’s game status is worth mentioning when it comes to fantasy football but better safe than sorry I guess.

Running Backs

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: The Panthers backfield will be a combination of Cameron Artis-Payne, Fozzy Whittaker, and a little Mike Tolbert. The backfield is a cluster “mess” and they are playing the Vikings. It’s not an ideal situation so it’s best to avoid if you can.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory was a full participant in practice but is listed as questionable.

The Spin: Ivory will more than likely play in Sunday’s game but his workload is in question. It’s probably best to wait a week before plugging him into lineups. On the bright side, T.J. Yeldon has been so underwhelming that Ivory could have a huge role once he’s 100%.

Dolphins RB Arian Foster did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: The Dolphins backfield will be some sort of committee between Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead. It’s best to avoid to this backfield if you can.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings was limited in practice and is questionable to play.

The Spin: Jennings is expected to play but it’s unclear if his role and snaps will be limited. On the off chance he’s ruled out, RB Shane Vereen would see a good amount of volume.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: Charles Sims should see close to 20 touches in Sunday’s matchup against the Rams. If you own him, you are playing him.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was limited in practice and is listed as doubtful.

The Spin: Spencer Ware will once again carry the load for the Chiefs. He has a tough matchup against the Jets but his expected volume makes him an RB2.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls did not participate in practice and is listed as doubtful.

The Spin: There’s a high probability Rawls does not play on Sunday. If you own Christine Michael you are starting him and you’re feeling good about it.

Wide Receivers

Bills WR Sammy Watkins did not participate in practice and is listed as questionable.

The Spin: Even if Watkins does play, he won’t be 100% and has a tough matchup against the Cardinals. It’s probably best to leave him on benches.

Browns WR Corey Coleman did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: With Coleman and Josh Gordon out, WR Terrelle Pryor could make for a sneaky and cheap DFS option.

Dolphins WR Devante Parker was limited in practice and is questionable to play.

The Spin: The second-year kid from Louisville will more than likely play. He’ll also more than likely be on the weekly injury report for the entire season.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett was a full participant in practice.

The Spin: There’s little doubt Lockett is playing and he’s a WR3/FLEX option.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief did not participate and is listed as out.

The Spin: With Moncrief out, WR Phillip Dorsett will see a boost in snaps making him a WR3/FLEX option.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall was limited in practice and is questionable to play.

The Spin: Marshall is truly a game-time decision. If he is active it’ll be tough to bench him. If he’s inactive, WR Quincy Enunwa who already has standalone value will get a big boost.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice and is questionable to play.

The Spin: Jeffery should suit up for Sunday Night Football. However, with his injury history, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him scratched from the starting lineup.

Saints WR Willie Snead did not participate in practice.

The Spin: The Saints are playing on Monday Night Football so they get an extra day of practice. Right now, Snead is questionable to play. There should be a little more clarity later today and/or tomorrow. If he’s active he’s a great play in a great matchup. However, if he’s inactive for MNF and you don’t have a backup plan, you’re beat. Decisions, decisions…

Tight Ends

Bills TE Charles Clay was limited in practice and is questionable to play.

The Spin: He should play on Sunday but chances are if you are depending on Clay to play, your fantasy team is in trouble anyways.

Broncos TE Virgil Green did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: You better go get another TE if you planned on starting Green.

Lions TE Eric Ebron was a full participant in practice but is listed as questionable.

The Spin: He’s playing and he’s a solid TE1 for Sunday’s game.

Titans TE Delanie Walker did not participate in practice and is listed as questionable.

The Spin: Walker has a great matchup this week so this is terrible news for owners. Make sure you have a backup plan ready to go just in case Walker is inactive.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz did not participate in practice and is listed as out.

The Spin: Maybe next week.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates did not participate in practice and is listed as doubtful.

The Spin: He’s not playing and you need another TE for the week.

DFS Nuggets

Keep in mind if Delanie Walker cannot play, this takes a big hit to Marcus Mariota‘s great matchup.

Colts CB Vontae Davis might return to the Colts secondary. Keep this in mind if/ you’re starting Chargers WRs and/or Phillip Rivers.

With Antonio Gates out, rookie TE Hunter Henry won’t cost you a lot of money and he could easily return value in a potential shootout.
