MNF: Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) questionable

Saturday, November 17, 2018, 2:03pm

Adam Teicher - [Full Article]

Sammy Watkins is listed as questionable by the Chiefs for Monday night’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice on Friday or Saturday because of a sore foot. “We’re taking that day by day,’’ coach Andy Reid said. “We’ll see how he does as we go.’’

Related players: Chris Conley, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce

Fantasy Impact:

With Watkins not playing last week and being downgraded this week in practice from a limited participant to not practicing Friday, those with shares of Watkins should prepare not to have him Monday night in Los Angeles. With Watkins sidelined last week, Demarcus Robinson and Chris Conley only received four and two targets, respectively, in Week 10. Neither is a reliable fill-in option.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein (not injury related) missed practice Thursday.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) missed practice Thursday. With Kupp done for the year, Josh Reynolds should play 80 percent or more of the snaps as the Rams’ WR3. This game should be a shootout so he’s a good bet to score some fantasy points, even if his targets aren’t guaranteed. The last time he played starter snaps, he posted 3-42-2 on five targets against the Packers.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (foot) took full practice reps Thursday. No worries here. He’ll be out there against the Rams.

Chiefs think WR Sammy Watkins (foot) could play Week 11

Monday, November 12, 2018, 5:02pm

Brooke Pryor on Twitte - [Full Article]

Reid says Sammy Watkins and Anthony Hitchens have a pretty good chance of being able to go against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

Watkins returned to take limited reps last Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. This game is a Monday night contest, so owners will maybe need a backup plan in place.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp has torn ACL, out for season

Monday, November 12, 2018, 12:02pm

Sporting News - [Full Article]

Cooper Kupp is expected to miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL suffered Sunday against the Seahawks, ESPN reported, citing sources.

Kupp underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed the severity of the injury.

Related players: Josh Reynolds

Fantasy Impact:

The wide receiver went down on the field in pain after running a route that didn't appear to involve any contact, so owners probably saw the final diagnosis coming at that point. Reynolds now takes over as the team's WR3. In Weeks 7 and 8 when Kupp was out, Reynolds totaled four catches for 61 and two TDs on five targets. But, most of that came in Week 8 against Green Bay when he totaled a 3-42-2 line. In those same weeks, Reynolds played on 83- and 88-percent of the snaps, so he seems worth adding for teams needing help at WR. As for the future, seems like a close call for Kupp to be ready for the 2019 season.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp leaves Week 10 game

Sunday, November 11, 2018, 7:12pm

CBS Sports

Rams WR Cooper Kupp left the Week 10 games against the Seahawks with a knee injury.

Related players: Josh Reynolds

Fantasy Impact:

It was a non-contact injury as Kupp was running a rout, stopped to cut, fell and immediately grabbed his left knee, as seen on the CBS broadcast. Kupp is recently back from an MCL sprain, so obviously the hope is this isn't more serious than that. If Kupp has to miss time, Reynolds will be back on the fantasy radar.

Seattle RB Chris Carson to be a game time decision

Friday, November 9, 2018, 2:47pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Pete Carroll told KIRO Radio 97.3 FM that running back Chris Carson (hip), right guard D.J. Fluker (calf) and strong safety Bradley McDougald (knee) will be game-time decisions Sunday against the Rams. All three sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday. "We’re trying to figure out how to manage their way through it and then find out nearer to game time if they can play for us, so we’re still waiting and seeing," Carroll said.

Fantasy Impact:

If Carson doesn't play, Mike Davis is a volume-driven top-15 option against the Rams. Carson wouldn't get the same ranking if he suits up due to the risk of reinjury and Davis' presence, making him more of a low-end RB2. Rashaad Penny is still Rashaad Penny, so don't start him. Or even roster him, really.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. No worries here.
