Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Joe Mixon (concussion) questionable for Week 13

Joe Mixon (concussion) was limited in practice all week long and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon still needs to clear concussion protocol in order to play this week. However, head coach Zac Taylor sounded optimistic when discussing Mixon’s status, so perhaps he could clear the protocol on Saturday. If so, he ranks as a low-end RB1 in fantasy football.

 

Leonard Fournette (hip) practices in full again Friday

Leonard Fournette logged a second straight full practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Fournette appears well on track to making his return on Monday against the Saints. It is tough to know what the workload will look like between him and Rachaad White, who has looked good in his last two starts. Fournette should be the lead back though if he is healthy, but they could both be involved.

 

 

Aaron Rodgers (thumb, ribs) practices Friday

Aaron Rodgers practiced for the second straight day on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Rodgers has said all week he will be playing, but we have heard players say they would be playing before being ruled out. These back-to-back practices shows Rodgers should be on the field on Sunday against the Bears.


Najee Harris (oblique) says he will play in Week 13

Najee Harris said he is good and will play on Sunday against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Harris missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday after leaving Monday’s game early. It is possible his workload is still limited, but his presence on the field means Jaylen Warren can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups this week.
