Fantasy Football Injury News

Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.

Josh Reynolds (groin) listed as questionable for Sunday

Josh Reynolds (groin) is listed as questionable to play for Sunday’s game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Reynolds will be questionable heading into the weekend because of a groin injury. He’s been dealing with it all week and has been limited at practice because of it. If he’s ruled out ahead of kickoff on Sunday, Kalif Raymond and Marvin Jones Jr. will both be in line to get additional work in his absence.

DK Metcalf (ribs) questionable for Week 3

DK Metcalf (ribs) is questionable to play in Seattle’s Week 3 matchup against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Metcalf will be questionable heading into the weekend because of a hard hit he took in Week 2 that left him with sore ribs. He was upgraded to full participation at practice on Friday, however, so it seems like he is likely to be available for the Seahawks. He should play and will be a solid WR2/flex option against a weak Panthers’ secondary in Week 3.

DeVonta Smith (hamstring/thigh) limited at practice Friday

DeVonta Smith (hamstring/thigh) was limited at Philadelphia’s practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith is still dealing with a pair of injuries that left him limited at practice on Friday. He was limited on Thursday as well, and it’ll be interesting to see what his status is heading into Monday’s game against the Buccaneers. If he’s out, fantasy managers will have to look for Olamide Zaccheaus and Dallas Goedert to get more receiving work in his absence.

Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) upgraded to full participation Friday

Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was upgraded to a full participant at practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell was limited on Thursday after missing Week 2 because of an injury to his ribs, but he was upgraded to full participation at Friday’s practice. That’s great news and all but guarantees that he’ll be on the field in Week 3. D’Andre Swift is coming off of a really big week filling in for Gainwell, so it’ll be interesting to see how the team chooses to use each of them in a matchup against the Buccaneers.
