Crabtree gets a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 2. It could mean bad news for Johnson, who had a great summer and even a nice Week 1, catching 5 passes for 46 yards on 10 targets as the Cards were battling to comeback against the Lions.
Rams RB Todd Gurley was removed for the injury report Friday and is good to go for Sunday’s game against the Falcons.
Gurley was a full participant in practice Friday after returning on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday and is ready to face a Falcons defense that is 16th in our schedule adjusted rankings against opposing fantasy running backs. Malcolm Brown will still be involved but Gurley is back as a top option for a Rams team that is reeling and desperate for a win against a Falcons team that is even more desperate.
Fire up Latavius Murray as a flex and Josh Hill is a TE2 streaming option. Murray is on a small streak after outperforming Kamara in Week 7 and now will see more work with Kamara out. The Bears are a favorable matchup against tight ends but have not allowed a touchdown to the position since Week 1.
Both players ended up missing practice all week with their respective injuries. We’re awating the official word so keep a watch out for the final designations. If Kamara can’t go, Latavius Murray gets his shot at the lion’s share of the work, while Josh Hill will get the call at tight end.
