Saints RB Alvin Kamara left Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers with an ankle injury.
Kamara was taken down with the controversial hip drop tackle. Kamara finished with 45 yards on ten carries and caught two for four yards as the Saints have been in control all day in Tampa. Jamaal Williams will shoulder the load with Kendre Miller inactive today.
Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals.
Pacheco suffered the injury during the second half Monday against the Raiders but will end up not missing any games as a result. The Chiefs will have their leading rusher available in Week 17 as they look to clinch their 8th straight AFC West title Sunday. Pacheco moves right back into being a top-12 running back option this week against a Bengals team that has sorely missed defensive tackle D.J. Reader.
Hardman had his questionable designation removed and is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals. This will be his first game action since late November. Hardman will step in with Kadarius Toney out this week. Chances are Hardman won’t make enough of an impact to be fantasy relevant, given his lengthy absence and where we are in the fantasy season.
