Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Josh Jacobs (calf) not expected to practice much ahead of Week 13

Josh Jacobs is dealing with a calf injury and is not expected to practice much leading up to the Raiders’ game against the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs is coming off a monstrous performance in Week 12 that saw him finish with 229 rushing yards and two scores. The fact that he may not practice this week is both surprising and concerning, considering the fact that he looked completely healthy on his game winning breakaway 86-yard touchdown run against the Seahawks. It is possible the Raiders are just being cautious with him, but his status will need to be monitored throughout the week. If good to go, Jacobs would have another mouthwatering matchup in Week 13 against the bottom-barrel Chargers’ rush defense.

 

Darnell Mooney (ankle) placed on injured reserve, ending season

Darnell Mooney has been officially placed on the injured reserve, a move that confirms that he is out for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Impact

This is just a formality, as Mooney was already reported to miss the rest of the year with the ankle injury he suffered in Week 12. In his absence, Justin Fields will turn to Chase Claypool and Equanimeous St. Brown as his top receiving options for the final stretch of the season.

 

 

Daniel Bellinger: Giants optimistic TE could return Week 13

Giants’ head coach Brian Daboll stated that he is optimistic about Daniel Bellinger returning this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Bellinger has not played since the Giants’ game against Jacksonville in late October. The 22-year-old suffered a fractured eye socket, causing him to miss the last four games. Bellinger has caught passes in practice over the last two weeks and appears to be on track to play Sunday.


Aaron Rodgers (ribs) planning to play in Week 13

According to Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers, he received good news on his MRI scans Tuesday, and the franchise player plans to suit up against Chicago in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Rodgers was unable to finish the game against the Eagles on Sunday, paving the way for third-year QB Jordan Love to see his first snaps of the season. It sounds like Rodgers should be good to go against the Bears in Week 13, though his practice reps will almost surely be monitored throughout the week. Love will continue lurking in the wings for the next opportunity to showcase his skills.
