49ers running back Matt Breida left the first preseason game with a shoulder injury and did not return.
This would be a fairly significant injury, fantasy-wise, as Breida is expected to be closer to a 1B than a true No. 2 back to Jerick McKinnon this year. If he misses any time, it could leave McKinnon in a true workhorse role, or open up some touches for 2017 draft pick Joe Williams.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is eyeing a potential return next week against the Rams.
Prescott has had the stitches removed from his thumb and has begun throwing. Schefter does note that the Cowboys want him 100% healthy and could push the return back to Week 6 against the Eagles. With Cooper Rush playing well, the Cowboys don’t need to rush Prescott back. Either way, this is still an earlier return than expected. Prescott was originally going to miss 6-8 weeks.
It sounds like MVS is going to push and try to play through the injury and return for the first time since Week 1, but he only practiced on Wednesday, so even if he does play, he may very well be quite limited Sunday night. And that's another issue for fantasy purposes, he's playing Sunday night and isn't a reliable option due to the injury, so either way, he's probably best suited for the bench this week in your lineups. MVS is currently our WR68 this week.
Meyers was originally listed as questionable with a knee injury, but will now miss his second straight game. The Patriots will be without Meyers and, of course, QB Mac Jones at Lambeau, so it's Nelson Agholor and DeVante Parker as the top options on the outside for Brian Hoyer, our No. 32 QB this week. It could be a long day in Green Bay for the Patriots.
