Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Chris Godwin (hamstring) considered ‘optimistic’ to suit up in Week 4

Fantasy Impact: Godwin returned from his ACL injury in Week 1 but ended up with a hamstring injury. It may be safe to assume that Godwin won’t receive a full workload, but as one of Tom Brady’s top targets, he could still see some major action. Godwin is also still going to have to go through his pregame warmups without trouble in order to suit up, and with the Bucs game on Sunday night fantasy managers would be taking a bit of a risk having him in their lineups. Nonetheless, Godwin should be considered a flex play in what could be a high-scoring Sunday night game against the Chiefs.

Julio Jones (Knee) to test injury pregame, but expected to play Sunday

Fantasy Impact: Jones showed he still has something left in the tank during an impressive Week 1 showing against Dallas. The long-time superstar has been nursing an injury the last few weeks, but assuming he makes it through pre-game warmups he is a risky flex play in what could be a high-scoring game. It appears that Chris Godwin will be active as well, which could limit Jones’ season.

Zay Jones (ankle) ‘expected to play’ against the Eagles

Fantasy Impact: Jones has quietly put together a solid start to the 2022 season, and a big part of his ascension has been the play of Trevor Lawrence. Christain Kirk has been Lawrence’s top target for most of the season, but if Lawrence ascends to the quality he seems capable of, then he could be able to help support multiple relevant fantasy receivers. Jones should be considered a low-end flex option against a very solid Eagles secondary.

Dawson Knox (back, hip) expected to play Week 4 vs. Ravens

Bills’ WR Gabe Davis (ankle) and TE Dawson Knox (back, hip), both listed as questionable for Sunday, both are expected to play vs. the Ravens, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It sounds like Knox is going to be able to go in Week 4, but the bigger concern for fantasy managers is that he hasn’t produced through three weeks. Knox was due for some touchdown regression after scoring nine of them in 2021, but he currently has just nine receptions for 71 yards and no touchdowns through three games.
