Will Jerry Jeudy Play in Week 3? (2022 Fantasy Football)
After a stellar performance in Week 1 against Seattle, fantasy managers had high hopes for Jerry Jeudy’s Week 2 game against Houston. Unfortunately, Jeudy exited the game with a shoulder injury after only one catch for 11 yards. Will he be available in Week 3 when the Broncos take on the 49ers? Here’s what we know.
Jerry Jeudy is listed as questionable for Week 3
Jerry Jeudy is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday’s game against the 49ers.
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.
- Jerry Jeudy (ribs/shoulder) won’t practice Thursday
- Jerry Jeudy (shoulder) misses practice Wednesday
What the Experts are Saying
Jeudy is a game-time decision who is trending towards playing after being knocked out of Week 2 with rib and shoulder injuries. Video suggesting a low severity AC joint sprain (shoulder) and negative X-rays mean everything is structurally stable. This comes down to pain control, so we’d lean towards Jeudy being out there. The problem is, even if he plays, some performance impact is expected (~10-20%), but his diagnosis is unclear, so we can’t narrow down that range with any more certainty. Buyer beware that he’s also playing Sunday night. If I have other backup options during the Sunday or Monday night games, then I’d consider waiting on Jeudy’s active/inactive decision. But, if that’s not the case, then I’d rather not risk the goose egg in his spot.
