Elijah Mitchell harm replace

Mitchell (knee, head) did not follow Wednesday and underwent an MRI on his knee in the course of the week. He’s nonetheless in concussion protocol, so he may miss the sport towards the Bengals for that motive, however the knee ailment may hold him out, too. Ultimately, it is robust to understand how it will play out at this level, and it’ll possible be an in depth name heading into Sunday.

Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) can also be liable to lacking this recreation, so if each guys are out, JaMycal Hasty would presumably deal with a big workload. If Mitchell is out, however Wilson is in, Wilson may carry the load or it could possibly be a committee with Hasty. Overall, it is a robust scenario to navigate, until Mitchell performs. Mitchell ranks as our RB10 in commonplace and RB9 in PPR leagues if he can go, and he could be the one 49ers again price contemplating.

WEEK 14 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running again | Wide receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Darrell Henderson harm replace

Henderson (quad) was lively for Week 13 towards the Jaguars however did not play a single snap and finally left a ton of fantasy homeowners with a goose egg on the scoresheet. Because the Rams play on Monday evening, there’s not but any info on his standing for this week, however the Rams had been ready to make use of him final week in an emergency scenario. Presumably, he’ll play and be a contributor towards the Cardinals, however we won’t know for certain.

If Henderson performs, will probably be in a tricky matchup in Arizona, and Sony Michel will possible eat into a few of his carries. For these causes, now we have him on the RB24 in commonplace and RB25 in PPR leagues.

Quarterback | Running again | Wide receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

David Montgomery harm replace

Montgomery (shoulder, groin, glute) didn’t follow Wednesday, nevertheless it’s unclear at this level if he is in actual hazard to overlook the sport towards the Packers. The Bears play on Sunday Night Football, so this could possibly be an extended and complex scenario. Thursday’s follow will hopefully inform us more.

If Montgomery performs, he is our RB18 in commonplace and RB16 in PPR leagues towards a top-11 unit in limiting fantasy RBs. If he is out, count on Khalil Herbert to be the lead canine within the backfield like he was earlier this yr. He’ll rank a bit of bit under the place Montgomery is.

Alvin Kamara harm replace

Kamara (knee) was a full participant in follow Wednesday and is predicted to play towards the Jets. If he fits up, he instantly returns to the “must-start” group of RBs and may have a pleasant fantasy day towards the worst protection within the league towards fantasy RBs.

Kamara ranks as our RB3 in PPR leagues and RB4 in commonplace leagues. Since he logged full follow, we’re not anticipating him to be restricted. Mark Ingram is probably going out after being positioned on the reserve/COVID record, so Tony Jones Jr. would be the change-of-pace again, however after a disastrous efficiency towards Buffalo that induced him to be a wholesome scratch in Week 13, it is robust to belief him at the same time as a low-end flex.

D’Andre Swift harm replace

Swift (shoulder) didn’t follow Wednesday, and though Dan Campbell mentioned he is bettering, he additionally mentioned Swift is a longshot to play towards the Broncos.

Jamaal Williams needs to be the first again for a second straight week. We like Williams because the RB20 in commonplace and RB17 in PPR leagues. He solely drew one goal final week, however we predict he needs to be more within the three-to-five goal vary towards Denver, giving him a slight enhance in PPR codecs.

Melvin Gordon harm replace

Gordon (hip) was a restricted participant in follow Wednesday, so we’ll must see later within the week how issues are trending. There are possible tons of Javonte Williams homeowners who’re anxiously ready for Gordon’s standing as we head towards the weekend.

If Gordon is out, Williams shall be a top-10 play towards a Detroit protection that provides up the third-most fantasy factors per recreation to RBs. If Gordon does play, you need to in all probability start Gordon and Williams, as they each sit as mid-tier RB2s. Ultimately, each may end as RB2 and even RB1s, and it is robust to bench that form of upside — even on the danger one falls flat.
