Latest Injury News

Travis Kelce (knee) resumed practicing Friday. (Source: Adam Teicher on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kelce missed practice on Thursday but that was clearly just a maintenance day for the superstar tight end. Kelce will be all systems go for the Chiefs' Super Bowl matchup versus the 49ers next Sunday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Coleman didn't actually practice but it's encouraging that he got some activity in. He suffered a dislocated shoulder in the NFC Championship game but appears to have a shot at playing in next weekend's Super Bowl. Even if Coleman suits up, however, one figures Raheem Mostert will still receive the bulk of the carries.

Julian Edelman underwent a shoulder procedure last week that is expected to involve "not a length rehab". (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edelman was clearly banged up towards the end of the season but he is expected to be ready for New England's normal off-season program. However, it remains to be seen who he will be catching passes from in 2020.

Odell Beckham Jr. successfully underwent core muscle surgery. (Source: Cleveland Browns on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Beckham dealt with the injury all season and finished with just 74 receptions and four touchdowns. It was extremely disappointing from a fantasy perspective. The star wideout shouldn’t have much issue getting healthy for training camp.

Chris Jones (calf) is listed as active for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Titans. (Source: BJ Kissel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jones missed last Sunday’s divisional-round win over the Texans. He will provide an instant boost to the Chiefs pass rush. There has been no report of Jones being limited or on a snap count, expect Jones to play in his usual role.

Adam Humphries (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs. (Source: Tennessee Titans on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Humphries has been out of action since December 1st. He will give Ryan Tannehill another target to go along with Corey Davis and AJ Brown. There has been no report of Humphries being limited, expect him to play his usual role out of the slot.

LeSean McCoy (illness) is inactive for Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the Titans. (Source: BJ Kissel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With McCoy ruled out, Damien Williams will lead the Chiefs backfield in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against them Titans. Darwin Thompson will back him up, and provide a change of pace when Williams is rested.

George Kittle wasn't listed on the 49ers' final injury report. (Source: David Lombardi on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kittle missed practice on Wednesday but practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. He was held to just 16 yards in the 49ers' Divisional Round win over the Vikings but we expect him to be more involved on Sunday afternoon against the Packers.

The Steelers still don't have a concrete timeline for QB Ben Roethlisberger's rehab on his season-ending elbow injury, but the Steelers remain encouraged as everything so far has been 'positive.' (Source: Brooke Pryor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It sounds like there will be some uncertainty around Roethlisberger throughout the offseason, but hopefully there will be some clarity as we approach training camps. As we saw in 2019, even a veteran Roethlisberger is an upgrade over the team's other options. As such, it wouldn't be suprising to see the Steelers address the quarterback position this offseason via free agency or the NFL Draft.

Raheem Mostert said he was limited by a calf cramp in the 49ers' 27-10 Divisional Round win over the Vikings. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mostert was battling an illness throughout the week, which he thinks caused the issue. Mostert rushes 12 times for 58 yards and was out-carried 22-12 by Tevin Coleman. Mostert says he doesn't expect the issue to be a problem moving forward.

Mark Andrews (ankle) is active for Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Titans. (Source: Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Andrews practiced on a limited basis all week and will suit up for Saturday’s playoff game against the Titans. It is unclear if the ankle injury will limit him, but expect Andrews to play his usual role as one of Lamar Jackson’s top targets. Fantasy owners in playoff leagues and DFS can safely start him.

Mark Ingram is listed as active for Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Titans. (Source: Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingram strained his calf Week 16 and was only able to practice on Friday. He is all systems go and should play his usual role as the lead Ravens back. It is unclear if Ingram will be limited, but expect to him get anywhere from 15-20 carries. Fantasy owners in playoff contests or DFS can safely start him.

Adam Thielen (ankle) is listed as active for Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the 49ers. (Source: Minnesota Vikings on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After going through pregame warmups, Thielen tested his ankle and is all systems go for Saturday’s playoff contest against the 49ers. He suffered a laceration in his left ankle (which required stitches) in Wednesday’s practice, but it will not prevent him from playing Saturday. Thielen caught seven passes for 129 yards against the Saints in the Wild Card round. There has been no report of Thielen being limited, he should play his usual role as one of Kirk Cousin’s top targets.

Jimmy Graham missed Wednesday's practice and was limited Thursday due to a wrist injury, but he was ultimately removed from the team's injury report.

Fantasy Impact: Graham was never thought to be at risk of missing the game this weekend against the Seahawks, as the team seemed to be giving the veteran rest. It's an interesting spot for Graham, who has fluctuated between disappearing and being a TE1 this season, as he'll face his former team. If you're a fan of the revenge narrative, Graham could be an interesting second-tier tight end option this weekend for playoff fantasy contests.

Josh McCown is set to undergo surgery to help repair a torn hamstring he suffered during the team's Wild Card loss to the Seahawks. (Source: Tim McManus on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McCown came off the bench to replace a concussed Carson Wentz and nearly led the Eagles to victory over the Seahawks. He was clearly injured during the game, but the extent of the injury is a bit surprising and shows the toughness of the veteran. McCown's availability for the 2021 season shouldn't be impacted by the injury, though it's not clear if the veteran, who came out of retirement to sign with the Eagles, will return for another season.

Kenny Stills is listed as questionable to play against the Chiefs due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Considering this is the injury Stills played through last week against the Bills and there haven't been reports of a setback, the wide receiver is expected to suit up against the Chiefs. With fellow wide receiver Will Fuller sidelined against the Bills, Stills caught four of five targets for 46 yards. Fuller is also questionable against the Chiefs, but the expectation is that he'll suit up. If he does return, it would take some of the luster off Still this weekend in fantasy playoff contests.

Jordan Akins enters the weekend questionable to play against the Chiefs due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: The injury sidelined Akins last weekend against the Bills. With Akins out, fellow tight end Darren Fells caught four of five targets for 37 yards. Now, Fells is also dealing with an ailment, as he was added late in the week to the team's injury report. If either is forced to miss the game, it would make the team's active tight end an interesting value play this weekend.

Darren Fells was a late addition to the team's injury report due to a hip injury.

Fantasy Impact: The late addition would seem to indicate that Fells suffered the injury during practice late in the week. As such, his status for the team's game Sunday against the Texans is up in the air. Fellow tight end, Jordan Akins, is also questionable due to an injury. Fells played nearly 100% of snaps in Akins' absence last week, resulting in four receptions on five targets for 37 yards, so if only one of the two suit up this weekend they would make an interesting value play for playoff fantasy purposes.

Will Fuller is expected to play against the Chiefs despite his groin injury. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fuller was announced as expected back earlier this week, but the Texans then started to call him more of a game-time decision. Still, unless there is a setback, it appears Fuller will play against the Chiefs. He's always an interesting option for fantasy purposes given his extreme upside yet basement floor. If nothing else, his presence would benefit quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Sam Darnold underwent a procedure Tuesday to repair a ligament in his left thumb, according to sources. The procedure was performed by the Jets team doctors, and he is not expected to miss any time this offseason, sources said. (Source: NY Post)

Fantasy Impact: Sam Darnold had a lot to overcome during his sophmore season. Playing behind one of the leagues absolute worst offensive lines (ranked 30th overall according to football outsiders) and in a new offensive system under HC Adam Gase. Darnold played much better in the final two months of the season after struggling for a stretch in October when he returned from mono. The decision on resigning UFA Robby Anderson and possibility that GM Joe Douglas decides to move on from Le'veon Bell will have a major impact on Darnold's 2020 outlook.
