Fantasy Football Injury Updates

David Montgomery out for Sunday’s game

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery left last week’s contest early, paving the way for sophomore RB Khalil Herbert to show out in his absence. Herbert had a strong rookie season while Montgomery was sidelined, and should be viewed as a strong RB2 candidate against a vulnerable Giants defense, especially in a run-heavy offensive system. Montgomery didn’t practice, but there was hope he’d play this week, meaning his chances of playing next week are still high.

Chris Godwin (hamstring) considered a game-time decision in Week 4

Fantasy Impact: Julio Jones (knee) is also considered a game-time decision. Godwin returned to practice after missing Thursday’s practice. It is tough to trust starting Godwin with the Bucs playing Sunday night.

Julio Jones (knee) to be a game-time decision in Week 4

Fantasy Impact: Jones was limited on practice all week, so it would seem like he has a chance to return this week. The Bucs play Sunday night though, so it is tough to risk starting him for fantasy managers. His return would greatly benefit Tom Brady. Chris Godwin (hamstring) is also considered a game-time decision.

Dalvin Cook (shoulder) off the injury report

Fantasy Impact: Cook was a full participant in practice on Thursday and is expected to wear a shoulder brace. It does not sound like there are any concerns of limitations for Cook this weekend, so he remains a start for fantasy managers.
