The Spin: Ingram has practiced this week but has yet to pass the league’s concussion protocol. It’s anyone’s guess if he will pass it in time for Sunday’s game . If he can’t go, Tim Hightower will see a heavy workload.
The Spin: The Eagles don’t play until Monday so his official game designation hasn’t been set yet. However, if he doesn’t practice again on Saturday, he’ll more than likely be out this week. If that’s the case, Wendell Smallwood should see 15-20 touches. He has a high ceiling in a good matchup against an injury-depleted Packers defense.
The Spin: He practiced in full and he’ll return to the Chargers starting lineup. Benjamin has fallen behind teammate Tyrell Williams as the team’s No.1 WR and finds himself in a tough matchup this week. He’ll be a WR3 against the Texans.
The Spin: There are a lot of Patriots listed as questionable (as usual) but Gronk is the only fantasy relevant player who truly is a game-time decision. More than limey, the Patriots will be cautious with their best playmaker and sit him out for the second straight week.
The Dolphins could be without three offensive line starters (Branden Albert, Laremy Tunsil and Mike Pouncey). If you own Jay Ajayi in season-long leagues you’re probably still starting him. However, there’s a lot of risk in spending up for Ajayi in DFS.
With A.J. Green out, Tyler Boyd and Brandon LaFell will be the No.1 and No.2 wide receivers for the Bengals. The Ravens have one of the best run defenses in the NFL so if they want to move the ball it’s probably going to be through the air. If I’m picking one for a DFS lineup, I’m going with the rookie Boyd.
It was mentioned above but I’ll talk about it some more in case you missed it. The Eagles RB Ryan Mathews looks likely to miss Monday’s game against the Packers. Darren Sproles should play but will be less than 100 percent with a rib injury. Wendell Smallwood will see plenty of touches in a favorable matchup and is cheap in DFS.
