Update: Saturday 12:31 pm
It’s another Saturday of uncertainty for the NFC-leading Arizona Cardinals, as two of their biggest stars again face big question marks in Sunday’s game in Chicago.
both quarterbacks kyler murray and wide receiver deandre hopkins, who haven’t played for several weeks, are said to be game-time decisions. Luckily for fantasy mavens, the cards are playing an afternoon game this week, so if you wake up early enough you’ll be able to find late-discount replacements.
Things are even more difficult for the drowning Seahawks in Seattle. both are following alex collins And rashard penny Listed as suspicious, nor suspected as the latest Hawk, running ancient Adrian Peterson, The former Viking became active after signing with the Seahawks’ practice squad earlier this week and could see action against San Francisco on Sunday. Don’t even think about that.
Three marginally influential players have been dropped in the past few days: Washington RB JD McKissickmilf philly rb Jordan Howard and Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, the absence of the latter, and the beginning gives it mike glenon, makes Miami’s defense an especially good game this week.
Not yet completely ruled out, but considered suspicious for now, Denver RB melvin gordonMILF Chicago Wideout Alan RobinsonGiants Receiver Kadarius Tony And sterling shepardMILF and raiders tight end Darren Waller,
Officially on the list of suspects Jaguar RB . Are included James Robinson, raiders rb Josh Jacobsoram rb Darrell Hendersonmilf houston rb David Johnsonmilf philly rb Boston Scott and QB Jalen HurtsRams WR Odell Beckham Jr. and Jets WR Corey Davis,

Its been up to 13 weeks. But for the fantasy mavens who used up the roster space on premium backup players, this might just be your lucky week!
Look no further than the local football squad headquartered in Egan. Dalwyn Cook’s shoulder injury may have brought Alexander Mattison back into the starting lineup. The timing couldn’t be more right for the Mattison Mavens.
The VIkings are headed to Detroit to face the winning Lions in a rematch of their Week 5 game in Minneapolis. That was when Mattison replaced an injured Cook and scored a touchdown and 153 yards for 32 runs. Not too shabby, nor will it be this week and beyond.
Meanwhile, the Lions will be without starter D’Andre Swift, taking former packer Jamal Williams to the starting lineup for a couple of weeks. Williams hasn’t scored in more than two months, but changes are likely against the Vikings’ defensive front.
Carolina has lost Christian McCaffrey for the rest of the season, which means Chuba Hubbard is back at No. 1, where he was overwhelmed earlier this year.
A similar story was happening in Dallas this week. Ezekiel Elliott was reportedly going to rest due to his ailing knee this week, picking up Toni Pollard in the starting lineup for the Cowboys. Owner Jerry Jones cast doubt on that report, but the situation is in flux.
Pollard has arguably been Pox’s best runner over the past month. For the season, he has 787 yards on 129 touches, or about six yards per run/catch. And he looked great returning kickoff from a hundred yards for a score on Thanksgiving against Las Vegas.
For fantasy types like The Loop who have both Elliot and Pollard on their roster, Zeke’s comfort will indeed be a blessing for Thursday night’s game in New Orleans.
As the season rolls on, here are some other understandings that may be making waves, or are just the start of a stroke away from prosperity:
Sonny Mitchell (Rams RB) – Darrell Henderson could be out this week, bringing this former Patriots star to prominence again. Mitchell has only two TDs so far this year, but he is a proven commodity and could be a big help to struggling Matthew Stafford.
Boston Scott (Eagles RB) – He’s getting more play as Miles Sanders slips into the doghouse ahead. And with Sanders injured, Scott is in line for a bigger role. In the last five matches, he has made 60 touches for 295 yards and three TDs.
Darrell Williams (Chief RB) – Clyde Edwards-Helair On his recovery from injury, Williams has a great insurance policy for you and Kansas City. He has made three touchdowns in his last six matches. For the year, 99 touches for 502 yards.
Ronald Jones III (Buccaneers RB) – Sure, Leonard Fournette looked huge in his four-touchdown game last week, but his grasp reached the end zone for the second game in a row. Jones is walking back in a valid No. 1 wait. Perhaps.
Dontrell Hilliard (Titans RB) – Someone has finally filled some Derrick Henry void in Tennessee. He caught eight passes in his first game. In the next, he ran for 131 yards and a TD. But he’s saying goodbye this week, so he can’t help you until week 14.
giants’ Saxon Barkley There is a shadow of his old self, and he will stay up against Miami. …Tampa Bay would eventually detect Atlanta’s only offensive threat, cordarell patterson, … Chicago RB David Montgomery Will have to fight for every yard against Arizona. … Pittsburgh’s crime is struggling so bad that RB Nazi Harris is the only player you should rely on against Baltimore. …and two young quarterbacks will find sledding tough this week: New England mac jones Vs. Bill and the Eagles’ Jalen Hurts Against improving jet defense.
San Francisco RB Eliza Mitchell Ran through Vikings last week and will run through Seahawks this week. … Las Vegas’ Josh Jacobso Has been better lately and should be able to prosper against Washington. … of Arizona James Connor Should be good for at least one touchdown against Chicago. … both are following Denver, melvin gordon And javonte williams, would be worth starting against the chiefs. …Which Buccaneer will do the best this week against Atlanta’s weak defense? Why Rob Gronkowski, Undoubted. … NS t higgins The revival will continue in Cincinnati against the Chargers. … will be as Tua Tagovailoa Demonstration against giants.
Big news involves the Cardinals, who seem to be returning as quarterback kyler murray and receiver deandre hopkins, … players in the Tennessee WR already dropped this week. is included AJ Brown and all-purpose of San Fran Deebo Samuel, … the rank of saints with doubtful characteristics at present RB Alvin Kamra, Washington RB JD McKissick, Dallas WR Amari Cooper, Dallas WR cd lamb, tampa bay wideout Antonio BrownMILF Giants WRs Kadarius Tony And sterling shepardRams WR Odell Beckham Jr., jets wideout Corey DavisMILF Bear WR Alan RobinsonMILF Steelers Tight End Pat Freermuth And three quarterbacks: Philly’s Jalen Hurts, of Denver Terry Bridgewater and of Chicago Justin Fields,
Back in the century when he was in South Philadelphia, Raiders WR Deason Jackson There was something. But that was many years ago, and it seemed to be coming to an end after being bitten by rams last month. He did very little after being picked up from the junkyard by Las Vegas. But his three catches for 102 yards and a touchdown on Thanksgiving showed there might still be some tread on those tires. Still very fast tyres. If you’re desperate for a receiver that occasionally turns upside down, you could do worse.
