Fantasy Football Injury News
Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.
Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) to miss Week 4
Baltimore Ravens WR Odell Beckham Jr. is slated to miss his second game in a row as he deals with an ankle injury.
The Ravens are preparing for an important divisional matchup with the Cleveland Browns, whose defense has been daunting so far this year. They will be without both Beckham and WR Rashod Bateman, severely ailing their passing attack. WR Zay Flowers and TE Mark Andrews will be the focal points in the passing game, but WR Nelson Agholor could also see a key role.
Deebo Samuel (ribs/knee) questionable for Sunday
Deebo Samuel (ribs/knee) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Samuel is dealing with a pair of injuries that he suffered in Week 3 that will now leave him questionable for Week 4. It’s unclear what way he’s trending, but the team may not even need him in what should be an easy matchup against the Cardinals. If he’s out, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle will both be primed to get more work in his absence.
Austin Ekeler (ankle) listed as doubtful for Week 4
Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler is doubtful to play in Week 4, setting him up for a potential return in Week 6 following their bye.
This should have been expected; while Ekeler was limited all week, he wasn’t at 100%. With the Chargers facing a Week 5 bye, it made the most sense to let him sit. Despite some optimism for Joshua Kelley as a fantasy asset in Weeks 2 and 3, he seems like nothing more than a desperation play after consecutive duds, as the Chargers have focused their sans-Ekeler offense on the passing game.
