- Play Harris with confidence: Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (foot) is good to go and wasn’t listed on the Steelers’ final injury report
- Monitor the Bucs WRs: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver room is all kinds of banged up and features four different questionable players
- Make contingency plans for Kittle: Stud San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle is shaping up as a true game-time decision.
Estimated reading time: 8 minutes
- Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (right thumb) is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks depending on if you ask owner Jerry Jones or a medical professional. Cooper Rush will start in his absence and likely lead anyone’s idea of a bad offense.
- New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston (back) limited all week and is officially questionable, although there hasn’t been any indication that Winston is at risk of missing Sunday’s revenge game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston remains a boom-or-bust QB2 type.
- New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (back, illness) missed Thursday’s practice but was back on the field Friday and will take every snap against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday after not being listed on the final injury report.
- New York Jets QB Zach Wilson (knee) is supposed to be out until Week 4. Joe Flacco remains under center.
- Steelers RB Najee Harris (foot) practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. He wasn’t listed on the final injury report and is good to go for Sunday. It makes sense to rank Harris closer to the RB1 borderline than usual with his health in question, but the Steelers’ second-year workhorse should still be starting in fantasy lineups of all shapes and sizes.
- Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced in full all week yet is listed as questionable. A limited workload in his first week back would make sense, so I’ll be answering the majority of close start/sit questions involving Dobbins with the other guy.
- Saints RB Alvin Kamara (rib) didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and is officially questionable. Mark Ingram (ankle) is also questionable but seems more likely to suit up after practicing in a limited fashion all week. Note that the Saints signed Latavius Murray earlier this week so expect a more-pronounced committee than normal without many fully healthy bodies available.
