  • Jalen Reagor

    Philadelphia Eagles

    Jalen Reagor (thumb) will play Sunday night

    Reagor was designated to return from injured reserve earlier in the week and has participated fully in practice every day since, so the news that he will be activated from injured reserve in time to play in Sunday night’s Week 8 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys comes at much less of a surprise. The Eagles will still be without Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, so there is still ample opportunity for Reagor to carve out a role as the other outside wide receiver opposite Travis Fulgham in this offense, especially while one or both of Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz remain on injured reserve. There haven’t been any reports of a potential snap count for Reagor at the time of this writing, so it’s entirely plausible he’ll be a full-time starter and an excellent tournament option in the single-game daily fantasy formats across the industry this weekend.

  • Julian Edelman

    New England Patriots

    Julian Edelman (knee) ruled out for Sunday; N'Keal Harry (concussion) still not practicing

    Edelman underwent a procedure on his ailing knee on Thursday morning, and according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, will miss “some period of time”, effectively ruling him out of Sunday’s Week 8 matchup against the Buffalo Bills at a minimum. Meanwhile, Harry is still hasn’t cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and missed his second consecutive practice, putting his status for this weekend’s contest in doubt and making it possible the Patriots are forced to trot out Damiere Byrd, Jakobi Meyers, and Gunner Olszewski as their top three wide receivers on Sunday afternoon. Following Harry’s exit from last week’s loss, Meyers ended up logging an 80.9% snap rate and running 25 routes on passing downs, so he may be the preferred punt option in tournament formats considering he also accumulated six targets and a 68.0% market share of the team’s air yards.

  • Odell Beckham

    Cleveland Browns

    Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) officially placed on injured reserve

    As expected, the Browns officially placed Beckham on injured reserve with a torn ACL in his knee, effectively ruling him out of Sunday’s Week 8 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders and ending his 2020 season. The absence of Beckham will not only make Jarvis Landry the undisputed number one receiver in the Browns offense, but it will also open up additional opportunities for Rashard Higgins and likely some combination of Donovan Peoples-Jones and Khadarel Hodge, who is slated to be activated from injured reserve this week. The health status of Austin Hooper will be a key situation to monitor in Week 8 heading into the weekend as he would be set to be the number two target for quarterback Baker Mayfield if active or, if not, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku would enter consideration for daily fantasy formats across the industry once again.

  • Chris Godwin

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Chris Godwin (finger) officially ruled out for Week 8

    Godwin fractured his left index finger making a touchdown catch this past Sunday and is undergoing surgery on Tuesday morning to repair the damage. This effectively rules him of Monday night’s Week 8 matchup against the New York Giants, and depending on how quickly it heals, he could return for the Buccaneers Week 9 contest. Godwin has only played in four games this season, so there is a decent sample size as far as the NFL goes with Mike Evans as the lead wide receiver in this offense, and in those instances, he’s averaged nine targets from quarterback Tom Brady compared to the three targets he’s averaged with Godwin active. Additionally, with Antonio Brown not eligible to return from suspension until Week 9 at the earliest, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson figure to see more opportunities in the passing game as well.

  • Tyler Higbee

    Los Angeles Rams

    Tyler Higbee (hand) officially inactive Monday night

    Higbee was able to be a limited participant in practice on Saturday, but he’s officially been downgraded from questionable on the Rams’ injury report and will be inactive for Monday night’s matchup against the Chicago Bears due to a hand injury. His absence will obviously make Gerald Everett the primary pass-catching tight end for quarterback Jared Goff, but it will also likely force head coach Sean McVay to utilize more 1-1 personal, which would allow Josh Reynolds and maybe even Van Jefferson to see more routes in three and four wide receiver sets. This makes each of them, along with Everett, intriguing options in the single-game daily fantasy slates across the industry this evening.

  • Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers

    Deebo Samuel (hamstring) likely to miss the next two games

    Samuel was forced to exit in the second half of this past Sunday’s win over the New England Patriots, and head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed with reporters via Zoom that Samuel won’t be available for the Week 8 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks and most likely Week 9 as well due to a hamstring injury. The strain must be fairly significant if Samuel has already been ruled out this far in advance, and in his absence, Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne are in line to take on a much more significant role in the offense, though George Kittle clearly remains the top target in the passing game for quarterback Jimmy Garropolo moving forward. Additionally, the 49ers are also set to be without both Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. for at least the next two games, and if Tevin Coleman isn’t activated from the injured reserve list, JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon figure to lead this Niners’ backfield in touches this upcoming weekend.

  • Kenyan Drake

    Arizona Cardinals

    Kenyan Drake (ankle) expected to miss a "few weeks"

    Drake underwent an MRI on Monday morning that revealed a slight tear to a ligament in his ankle, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, is expected to miss at least a few weeks. The Cardinals have a bye week in Week 8, but given that prognosis, he’ll seemingly miss at least two or three games heading out of the bye, if not more since the Cardinals are treating this injury as a severe high ankle sprain. In Drake’s absence, Chase Edmonds should undoubtedly lead this Arizona backfield in carries and routes run for the duration he’s sidelined, putting him in a prime position to produce fantasy points at an elite level over the course of the next few games.

    Arizona Cardinals

    DeAndre Hopkins active Sunday night; KeeSean Johnson inactive

    DeAndre Hopkins didn’t appear at risk of sitting, and as expected the star WR will be active Sunday night. While he has been dealing with an ankle injury for the past few weeks, Hopkins still leads the NFL with 47 receptions and 601 yards. He should approach 10 targets once again tonight. KeeSean Johnson will be inactive, and he has only appeared in two games so far this season.

    Le’Veon Bell is officially active for the Chiefs, meaning he will make his debut Sunday. Clyde Edwards-Helaire will remain the top RB, but Bell will have a role in the offense, although it’ll likely be smaller than usual for his first week. Darwin Thompson is inactive, as he is not needed given the KC RB depth.

    New York Jets

    Jamison Crowder inactive; Sam Darnold active, as expected

    Sam Darnold will start for the Jets Sunday, but will be without WR Jamison Crowder. The absence of Crowder means more targets for a player like Braxton Berrios, while Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims and Jeff Smith should also get some chances. However, the Jets offense looks weak, and all these plays come with extremely low floors.

    Houston Texans

    Jordan Akins inactive Sunday

    Akins will miss his third straight game for the Texans. Darren Fells will be their top TE option and is coming off a very productive Week 6, where he caught 6 of 7 targets for 85 yards and a TD. Keep in mind, he had just 2 catches each of the two weeks before that game, so there is some downside risk.

  • Robert Tonyan

    Green Bay Packers

    Robert Tonyan active Sunday

    Tonyan was questionable this week but is officially active and will play. The Packers are without star RB Aaron Jones, which could open up more opportunities for players like Tonyan in the offense. The Packers also have a favorable matchup against the Texans, making Tonyan an interesting option.
