Giants TE Evan Engram no injury designation for Week 7

Saturday, October 20, 2018, 5:44pm

Giants official site - [Full Article]

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) does not have an injury designation on the Giants final injury report, ahead of Monday Night Football against the Falcons. He is set to make his return after turning in a full week of practice.

Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons are ranked fourth in aFPA to TEs, but given the current landscape of the TE position, Engram instantly returns to the TE1 conversation.

Falcons optimistic WRs Sanu and Ridley will play Week 7

Falcons official site

Coach Dan Quinn said Saturday that he was optimistic that receivers Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) would be ready to play Monday night.

Both were limited Saturday in practice.

Fantasy Impact:

It was Sanu's first practice participation of the week. Because of that, it would seem Ridley was more likely to play. If either is out, the other gets a bump for Week 7, as would Julio Jones.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski does not make trip to Chicago

Breaking: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) did not make trip to Chicago with team, per league source. Has NOT been ruled out yet, however.

Adam Schefter also reports the Patriots refuse to rule out Rob Gronkowski, depending on how he feels Sunday. But the signs are not good for Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots have an early kickoff Sunday, but fantasy owners need to be prepared to not have Gronkowski. Not travelling with the team is almost always a sign a player will not play.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon 'game-time decision' Week 7

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon, downgraded today due to a hamstring injury, “will most likely be a game-time decision,” per source with knowledge of the situation.

Melvin Gordon was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury, and the Chargers downgraded him to questionable Saturday. Putting his Week 7 status in further doubt, Los Angeles signed RB Detrez Newsome to the 53-man roster and waived LB Emmanuel Ellerbee.

Related players: Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson

Fantasy Impact:

Those with Melvin Gordon on their fantasy teams need to be aware that the Chargers kickoff at 9:30 AM eastern time in London. That's plenty of time to make adjustments if Gordon is ruled out tomorrow, but set an alarm so you do not forget to take Gordon out of your lineups if he's inactive. Austin Ekeler would vault into an RB1 if Gordon is out against the Titans.

Schefter: Jets release WR Terrelle Pryor

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Jets are releasing WR Terrelle Pryor today, per league source. Pryor has a tear in his groin and is expected to be out about two weeks. Jets interested in bringing him back when healthy, but other teams also likely to be interested.

Fantasy Impact:

With Quincy Enunwa out at least a month, the Jets are down to two reliable receivers in Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse. Kearse is a sneaky add, as the slot has been heavily targeted in this offense.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Bills QB Josh Allen (right elbow, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Derek Anderson will start for the Bills. The Colts are definitely in play for defensive streamers this week.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Bengals QB Andy Dalton (back) took full practice reps all week. Dalton was removed from the injury report so he’s ready for a great matchup against the Chiefs.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Jets QB Sam Darnold (right elbow) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Redskins QB Colt McCoy (right thumb) took full practice reps all week.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (right shoulder, out) took limited practice reps all week and is out for Week 7. Tannehill is out this week and maybe longer. Brock Osweiler will start against the Lions. He had a great game against the Bears last week but is still a nice target for defensive streamers. The Lions should be a good play this week.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go for a tough matchup against the Jaguars.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) took full practice reps again Friday. Wentz is good to go. He’s a strong start at home coming off three straight games of 20.7 fantasy points or more.

Friday, October 19, 2018, 7:30pm

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s ready to face the Browns. It’s not a great matchup—the Browns are No. 1 in QB aFPA—but the Bucs have an implied total of 26.3 points, so they’re expected to light it up.
