  • Jake Funk

    Los Angeles Rams

    LAR RB Jake Funk inactive Sunday

    Jake Funk has been listed inactive for the Super Bowl. Funk was expected to serve as running back depth for the Rams but will not be needed Sunday. The Rams will have Cam Akers, Sony Michel, Darrell Henderson, and Buddy Howell all available to play the running back position. Cam Akers is expected to lead the backfield with Sony Michel and Darrell Henderson mixing in. The wild card here is Henderson who was just activated from IR after being injured in Week 16. Henderson is not expected to play a major role for the Rams but HC Sean McVay did indicate that Henderson would be used in some capacity. Cam Akers and Sony Michel should be the Rams running backs considered in most DFS contests but if 150 max entering a sprinkle of Henderson might not be a bad idea as he has the potential to find the endzone and catch a couple of passes out of the backfield.

  • C.J. Uzomah

    New York Jets

    CIN TE C.J. Uzomah officially ACTIVE Sunday; WR Trenton Irwin and RB Trayveon Williams inactive

    C.J. Uzomah is officially active for the Super Bowl, while Trenton Irwin and Trayveon Williams have been listed inactive. Uzomah will officially be active and should return to his role as the top tight end for the Cincinnati Bengals. If Uzomah were to be limited in any way (though there has been no mention of this), Drew Sample and Mitchell Wilcox will be available to play tight end as well. Uzomah can be considered in DFS contests and has multiple touchdown upside. Trenton Irwin and Trayveon Williams were expected to serve as depth for the Bengals and their absences should have no DFS impact.

    Cincinnati Bengals

    CIN WR Trent Taylor elevated from practice squad for Super Bowl

    Trent Taylor has been elevated from the practice squad for the Super Bowl. Taylor is expected to continue to serve as the Bengals punt returner. Aside from returning punts, Taylor will serve as receiver depth and is not expected to play much of a role for DFS purposes. Outside of a punt return touchdown, there is no reason to consider Taylor in your Super Bowl showdown lineups.

    CIN TE C.J. Uzomah officially listed questionable, but considered "on track" to play in Super Bowl

    C.J. Uzomah has officially been listed questionable but is considered “on track” to play in the Super Bowl according to HC Zac Taylor. Uzomah continues to be trending in the right direction to play this weekend, and will likely return to his role as the top tight end for the Bengals. If active, he would be worthy of consideration in DFS formats due to his touchdown upside on the showdown slate. If he were unable to play, Drew Sample would be set to see the bulk of the tight end work with Mitchell Wilcox available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. It will be important to check Uzomah’s official status when inactives are released 90 minutes prior to kickoff on Sunday but all indications are that he should be good to go.

  • Tyler Higbee

    Los Angeles Rams

    LAR TE Tyler Higbee placed on IR; RB Darrell Henderson activated from IR ahead of Super Bowl

    Tyler Higbee has been placed on IR, while Darrell Henderson has been activated from IR ahead of the Super Bowl. WIth Higbee now officially out, Kendall Blanton will serve as the lead tight end for the Rams with Brycen Hopkins available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. DK has priced Blanton up after he played a significant portion of the snaps in the conference championship so there is no real value to be gained here. Blanton will still be worthy of consideration as he should be involved in the passing game for Los Angeles and has touchdown upside. Darrell Henderson should be available this Sunday, but will likely only play a minor role in the Los Angeles backfield. HC Sean McVay stated that he would be willing to ride the hot hand at running back but it is tough to imagine a scenario where Henderson overtakes both Cam Akers and Sony Michel within the course of the game. Right now, Akers is expected to lead the backfield with Michel mixing in as he is the better back when it comes to pass protection. Henderson is the best receiving back of the three and could be used that way. Akers and Michel project to be the top backs in the backfield but if 150 max entering it wouldn’t hurt to have a few shares of Henderson who could catch a few passes and fall into the endzone.

    LAR TE Tyler Higbee DNP Wednesday

    Tyler Higbee logged a DNP Wednesday and still seems unlikely to play this weekend after being listed as doubtful on the injury report released last week by the Los Angeles Rams. With Higbee likely out, Kendall Blanton will serve as the lead tight end for the Rams with Brycen Hopkins available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. DK has priced Blanton up after he played a significant portion of the snaps in the conference championship so there is no real value to be gained here. Blanton will still be worthy of consideration as he should be involved in the passing game for Los Angeles and has touchdown upside.

    CIN TE C.J. Uzomah DNP Wednesday but expected to return to practice tomorrow

    C.J. Uzomah logged a DNP Wednesday but is expected to return to practice tomorrow ahead of the Bengals Super Bowl matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. Uzomah continues to be trending in the right direction to play this weekend, and will likely return to his role as the top tight end for the Bengals. He would be worthy of consideration in DFS formats due to his touchdown upside on the showdown slate. If he were unable to play, Drew Sample would be set to see the bulk of the tight end work with Mitchell Wilcox available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. It will be important to monitor Uzomah’s practice status as the week progresses but right now it looks like he should be good to go in time for this Sunday.

    Los Angeles Rams

    LAR TE Tyler Higbee listed doubtful for Super Bowl; RB Cam Akers and WR Van Jefferson listed questionable

    Tyler Higbee has been listed doubtful for the Super Bowl, while Cam Akers and Van Jefferson have been listed questionable. With Higbee likely out, Kendall Blanton will serve as the lead tight end for the Rams with Brycen Hopkins available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. Both Cam Akers and Van Jefferson are expected to be available as HC Sean McVay only expressed concern for Higbee’s availability. Akers should serve as the lead back with Sony Michel and the possibly returning Darrell Henderson also mixing in. Jefferson should continue to serve as the third receiver for the Rams behind Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr.

    CIN TE C.J. Uzomah and WR Stanley Morgan listed questionable for Super Bowl

    C.J. Uzomah and Stanley Morgan have both been listed questionable for the Super Bowl. We are over a week out from the Super Bowl but Uzomah has yet to practice for the Bengals making his status for next Sunday’s game highly questionable. If he were unable to play Drew Sample would be set to see the bulk of the tight end work, with Mitchell Wilcox available to back him up and play in two tight end sets. Stanley Morgan, if available, would serve as receiver depth for Cincinnati.

    Los Angeles Rams

    LAR WR Van Jefferson ACTIVE Sunday; TE Brycen Hopkins inactive

    Van Jefferson will be active Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, while Brycen Hopkins will be inactive. Jefferson is expected to remain in his role as the third receiver for the Rams behind Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. Jefferson has the potential to break a big lay but shouldn’t see anywhere close to the volume of targets that Kupp and Beckham have enjoyed over the course of the playoffs. Hopkins was expected to serve as tight end depth for the Rams so his absence should not be DFS relevant.

  • Jeff Wilson

    San Francisco 49ers

    SFO RB Jeff Wilson and WR Mohamed Sanu inactive Sunday

    Jeff Wilson and Mohamed Sanu have been listed inactive for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. Wilson’s role has all but dried up in the San Francisco backfield so his absence this weekend will not be very relevant for DFS players. Elijah Mitchell will be set to lead the backfield with Deebo Samuel, JaMycal Hasty, and Trey Sermon also available to mix in. Mitchell can be considered in DFS contests this weekend due to expected volume. Sanu will be inactive after being activated from IR earlier this week, leading to questions if he was actually ready to be taken off IR. Without Sane, Trent Sherfield will move up into the number four receiver role behind Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and Jauan Jennings.

    Kansas City Chiefs

    KCC RB Darrel Williams ACTIVE Sunday; RB Derrick Gore inactive

    Darrel Williams will be active Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals leading to the healthy scratch of Derrick Gore. The Chiefs will have Williams, Jerick McKinnon, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire available to use in what could be a high-scoring game. Over the past couple of weeks it seems as though McKinnon has taken over the lead back role for Kansas City with CEH as a complimentary piece, though it remains to be seen what HC Andy Reid elects to do today. Williams could play a role today in the passing game if the Chiefs are trailing and need to put up some points in a hurry. The Kansas City backfield has been frustrating for DFS players so far this postseason and could continue to be this way today. It might be best to spread your exposure out between all available backs until a clear depth chart emerges.

    Jeff Wilson (ankle) has been listed questionable for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. Wilson’s role has all but dried up in the San Francisco backfield so his potential absence this weekend would not be very relevant for DFS players.

    Stanley Morgan (hamstring) has been listed doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Morgan was expected to serve as receiver depth if available so his likely absence will have little to no DFS ramifications. The top receiving targets for Joe Burrow remain Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and C.J. Uzomah.
