Fantasy Football Injury News
Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.
Miles Sanders expected to play versus Vikings
Carolina Panthers RB Miles Sanders, who was listed as questionable with a groin injury, is expected to play in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Sanders has been dealing with a groin injury since the offseason, something that may nag him throughout the season. Through three games, he has seen 53 touches including an increased use in the passing game compared to his previous seasons in Philadelphia. He is the half-PPR ECR RB15 in a solid matchup.
Marquise Brown (thumb) expected to play Week 4
Arizona Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (thumb) is expected to play in their Week 4 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.
Brown has had a solid start to his year, catching 14 passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns, an average of about 12 half-PPR fantasy points per game. The Cardinals have surpassed preseason expectations and, though he has a tough matchup this week, could continue to be solid going forward due to game script. He is the ECR WR42 for Week 4.
Saquon Barkley (ankle) doubtful for Week 4 versus Seahawks
Saquon Barkley (ankle) is listed as doubtful for the New York Giants ahead of their Monday night matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Despite Barkley logging a limited practice session Friday for the Giants, the star running back is trending towards being sidelined for the team’s contest Monday night. Matt Brenda and Gary Brightwell would once again split backfield duties for head coach Brian Daboll, although neither has proven to be a viable option for fantasy owners in Barkley’s absence so far this season.
