Week 1 Fantasy Football Practice News & Notes for Friday

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps all week. Bortles is expected to start in a tough matchup with the Texans. He’s not much of a fantasy option in Week 1.

Saints QB Chase Daniel (ankle) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week .

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) took full practice reps all week. He’ll be out there against the Bengals, though his lack of reps with Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead is worrisome.

Eagles QB Nick Foles (right elbow) took full practice reps all week.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 1. Luck will miss Week 1. Scott Tolzien will start, which is a downgrade for the entire offense. T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, Jack Doyle and Frank Gore are all negatively impacted by Luck’s absence.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (right shoulder) missed practice Thursday.

Panthers QB Cam Newton (right shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Newton missed part of camp with the injury, but it looks like he’s ready to face the 49ers despite the questionable tag.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. The Cardinals were just managing Palmer’s arm as they did in the back half of last season. Palmer posted top 10 quarterback numbers in his final nine games and has a fantastic matchup against the Lions.

Jets QB Bryce Petty (knee) took full practice reps all week.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) took full practice reps all week. Taylor will get the start against a bad Jets defense. He’s a solid fantasy option as long as he’s starting, though he’ll miss Sammy Watkins’ ability in the passing game.
