Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Keenan Allen (hamstring) in limbo for Week 3

Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not practice on Friday and is officially listed as questionable heading into Week 3. Head coach Brandon Staley said that he views Allen as “50-50” for Sunday’s contest. (Source: Hayley Elwood on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Allen hauled in all four of his targets for 66 yards before exiting in Week 1. He did not play last Thursday, and it appears his status remains in doubt for this coming Sunday. The fact that he did not practice Friday is concerning. Fantasy managers invested in Allen’s availability should check back Sunday for official confirmation on his status.

Leonard Fournette (hamstring) questionable for Week 3

Fantasy Impact: Fournette joins offensive playmakers Julio Jones (knee), Russell Gage (hamstring), and Breshad Perriman (knee) on the list of questionable Buccaneers players. Meanwhile, the team already knows it will be without Mike Evans (suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring). With Tampa Bay short-staffed on offense, Fournette could be leaned on a lot. If he’s active, fantasy managers should view him as a low-end RB1.

George Kittle (groin) cleared for Week 3

Fantasy Impact: Kittle is on track to make his 2022 debut this week. He ranks as a mid-range TE1 with Jimmy Garoppolo in charge of a strong San Francisco offense.

Jerry Jeudy (ribs/shoulder) listed as questionable for Week 3

Fantasy Impact: Jeudy logged a limited practice on Friday after missing practice on Thursday. He will likely be close to a game-time call, which is risky with him playing Sunday night. He will be a WR3 play if healthy.
