Week 17 Fantasy Football Injury Report

Ja’Marr Chase

Data projects 65% chance of playing with a relatively mild (10-15%) performance dip.

Kyler Murray

Despite participating in only 1 limited practice session all week, most “illness” designations would still get played through by QBs.

Zay Flowers

TBD. Data slightly favors playing at 55%. If active, typically only see mild performance dip. The concern would be high re-injury risk up to ~20% (see Joe Burrow, Nico Collins from earlier this season).

Trevor Lawrence

Lean slightly towards playing Week 18. These would average 2 weeks for most, but Lawrence has a relatively high rate of playing through injury.

CJ Stroud

Concussion data favors return at full pre-injury production.

Puka Nacua

The practice participation trend here is somewhat concerning, but comments suggest he will play and that missing Friday was just a precaution. Lean towards playing near full production.

DK Metcalf

Likely playing. DK tend to miss practice frequently as a load management strategy. Low performance impact projected.

Kenneth Walker III

Lean towards playing. Has missed several practices this year also and then carried a full load anyway.

Cole Kmet

Data projects 60% chance of playing, but would expect elevated re-injury risk. Moderate (~15%) stats dip projected if active.

Marvin Mims

Data projects 2/3 chance of sitting. WR hamstring that go from LP to DNP often imply a setback and cause 1-2 additional games missed.

Will Levis

Likely playing. Despite a severe-appearing high ankle sprain, most QBs don’t see performance dip upon return.

Dontayvion Wicks

Carrying 2 injuries would mean most WRs would miss this game.

Christian Watson

Doubtful players almost never play. Low optimism for Week 18 as well given current progression.

Michael Pittman Jr.

Logging full practice heavily suggests he will play and see full workload. No performance impact expected.

Brian Robinson

Likely playing. Data projects maintained pre-injury efficiency but high re-injury risk and lower workload than baseline.

Zay Jones

TBD. Data projects 60% chance to play.

Isiah Pacheco

TBD. Should find out about concussion clearance Saturday. If active, would expect full workload and production.

Raheem Mostert

Has been load-managed all year in practice. Given elevated age + extensive knee injury history, would expect continued split in RB touches.

Jordan Addison

Data projects 55% chance to play but with 20% performance dip if active.

Kendre Miller

Comments suggest he’d be sitting another week. Sounds like he may have had a recent setback. Potential dynasty buy-low candidate.
