Quarterbacks

QB Matt Stafford (hip)

Surprise listed as questionable for Week 4 after being added to the injury report and limited in Friday’s practice. Insider Kyle Meinke hears that the team would be “shocked” if QB Matt Stafford (hip) is unable to play against the Chiefs on Sunday. Meinke described the hip issue as a “tweak.” It sounds like Stafford is safe to keep in Week 4 fantasy lineups, but check back Sunday to make sure he’s active.




QB Case Keenum (foot)

As of today Keenum isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll start this weekend’s game against the Giants. There’s upside in that plus matchup — but Keenum also comes with risk after his 3-INT Week 3. His stock will take a hit if WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) isn’t able to play.





Running Backs

RB Damien Williams (knee)

Wililams is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s seemingly healthier than he was at this time last week and is a RB2 for Week 4. Darrel Williams will serve as Kansas City’s #2 RB but is just a RB3 or flex flier.




RB Justin Jackson (calf)

Jackson is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and spotted in a walking boot on Friday, so this might be a significant injury. Jackson, of course, was already set to drop off the fantasy radar with Melvin Gordon back.

 




RB Devin Singletary (hamstring)

Singletary is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. The rookie can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups, but his return would put a dent in RB Frank Gore’s projection. We’ll get Buffalo’s inactives by noon ET on Sunday.




RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring)

Penny is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He sat out Wednesday’s practice, was limited on Thursday and a full participant on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said Friday afternoon that Penny has a “good chance” to play vs. Arizona. He’s not much of a Week 4 fantasy option, but his return would add risk to Chris Carson’s outlook.




RB Ito Smith (concussion)

Smith has cleared the concussion protocol and isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He’ll return to his #2 RB role behind Devonta Freeman. Smith isn’t a real fantasy option but does downgrade Freeman to lower-end RB2 status vs. the Titans.





Wide Receivers

WR Amari Cooper (ankle)

Cooper was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. An MRI on that ankle came back clean, and we’ve heard nothing to suggest it’s a real concern. Keep Cooper locked into fantasy lineups for Sunday night’s showdown with the Saints.

 




WR T.Y. Hilton (quad)​

T.Y. is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. His absence will leave Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers as Indy’s top 4 WRs. Cain led the group in snaps last week and is the best fantasy bet. But you should avoid this situation outside of DFS tournaments.​




WR Julian Edelman (chest)

Edelman is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. His injury reportedly isn’t serious, and the New England media has seemed optimistic about his chances of playing this weekend. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If Edelman can’t go, rookie Jakobi Meyers would step in as the Patriots’ slot receiver. Remember, there’s so many mouths to feed in this WR corps, it’s hard to narrow down who to target on any given week.




WR Chris Godwin (hip)

Godwin is a game-time decision for Sunday’s tilt with the Rams. Godwin returned to practice on Friday after missing the first 2 days and was “moving around well,” according to Arians. Bucs-Rams doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, so hopefully we get an update on Godwin’s status on Sunday morning. Everyone was on him last week (including us) and we were burned by Evans.




​WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring)

McLaurin is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday. HC Jay Gruden said Friday afternoon that McLaurin is a game-time decision, but insider JP Finlay reported that the rookie “should play.” We’ll find out his official status by noon ET Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward fantasy play. If he’s out, WR Paul Richardson will get a boost.




WR Mike Williams (back)

Williams is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. We haven’t heard any details on the back injury or how much longer Williams will be sidelined. WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 4, so it looks like Dontrelle Inman will operate as Los Angeles’ #2 WR on Sunday. The juicy matchup makes him a WR4 or flex consideration.


Tight Ends

 

TE Mark Andrews (foot)

is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Browns. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but expects to play on Sunday. “These trainers have an idea for me to come out Sunday and be 100 percent,” Andrews said. “I’m well on my way there.” The foot issue obviously adds risk — but Andrews remains a top 6 fantasy option.




TE Delanie Walker

missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, listed on the injury report with a knee issue. But the veteran put in a full workout Friday and didn’t appear on the final injury report with game statuses. We’ll watch for any reports on his health through the weekend, but this looks like a maintenance thing for the 35-year-old. Walker faces a nice fantasy matchup at Atlanta.




TE Jordan Reed (concussion)

is out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. There’s still no timetable for his return. TE Vernon Davis has totaled just 59 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks after a strong opener. But he boasts some upside in a potential shootout vs. the G-Men.




TE Vance McDonald (shoulder)

did not practice on Thursday or Friday. HC Mike Tomlin said earlier in the week that McDonald had a shot to play against the Bengals on Monday night, but it’s not looking great.




TE Tyler Higbee (lung)

practiced all week and is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. That knocks TE Gerald Everett out of the spot-start discussion. Higbee actually out-targeted Everett 8 to 5 over the season’s first 2 games.




TE Tyler Kroft (ankle)

is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Rookie TE Dawson Knox broke out with a 3-67-1 line last week and should play a significant role again on Sunday. But he remains just a fantasy flier in a tough Week 4 matchup.




TE Virgil Green (quad)

is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. With TE Hunter Henry (knee) also out, L.A. is down to TEs Sean Culkin and Lance Kendricks. We only mention this because of the matchup vs. Miami. Culkin and Kendricks would be desperation fantasy plays.





Kickers

K Eddy Pineiro (knee)

is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after gutting through this injury last week. Pineiro figures to play vs. Minnesota, but look elsewhere in fantasy lineups.




K Mike Badgley (groin)

is out for Sunday’s game against Miami. Ty Long kicks again for the Bolts. He’s made 4 of 6 FGs and all 6 of his XP attempts through 3 games.
