Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Jerry Jeudy (ankle) sidelined Wednesday

Jerry Jeudy was sidelined at Broncos practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This comes as no surprise after Jeudy was carted off the field this past weekend due to an ankle injury. Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett called Jeudy day to day, so he still has a small chance of playing this weekend but it does not seem likely.

 

Cole Kmet (thigh) doesn’t practice Wednesday

Cole Kmet (thigh) was a non-participant in Wednesday’s practice for the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Kmet is dealing with a thigh injury of some kind that left him sidelined at practice on Wednesday. The severity of it is unknown at this time, but it could bring up some questions about his availability for Sunday. This is a situation fantasy managers should continue to monitor as the week progresses.

 

Mark Andrews (shoulder) practices on Wednesday

Mark Andrews ended up being a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice leading up to Baltimore’s Week 11 game against Carolina. He arrived after media availability ended, leading to the earlier report that he did not practice.

Fantasy Impact

The practice was his first since injuring his shoulder on October 27. John Harbaugh had expressed optimism that the 27-year-old TE would be ready for Sunday’s matchup, and fantasy managers are left in “wait-and-see” mode. If he is active, he can be deployed in fantasy leagues, particularly given the rash of injuries at the position.


Matthew Stafford practices in full Wednesday, expected to play this week

QB Matthew Stafford was a full participant at practice and is expected to play on Sunday, Sean McVay said.

Fantasy Impact

Stafford remains in concussion protocol, but he appears to be trending in the right direction to clearing the protocols by Sunday. Without Cooper Kupp, Stafford isn’t reliable anyways for fantasy managers.
