Fantasy Football Injury Update

A continuously updated list of injured players who affect your fantasy roster, along with a few plugin options at key positions.

As the injury reports roll in, we will keep this space updated with active/inactive declarations. I won’t add players injured mid-game to this list since they have already been locked either in or out of your lineup. You can keep checking back for updates, as some players are listed as “expected to play” and may not receive a definitive answer until later today.

These are the players who are ACTIVE for today:

Latavius Murray (RB - OAK) is back and active for the Raiders today.

Carson Palmer (QB - ARI) will start tonight.

Stefon Diggs (WR - MIN) is active and expected to get normal reps today.

Terrelle Pryor (WR - CLE) is expected to play today.

Odell Beckham Jr. (WR - NYG) is active.

DeSean Jackson (WR - WAS) is active.

Tyler Eifert (TE - CIN) is officially active and back in action today.

LeSean McCoy (RB - BUF) should suit up today barring a setback.

Joe Flacco (QB - BAL) is expected to return to action today.

Allen Hurns (WR - JAX) is active today.

Jamaal Charles (RB - KC) is active, but will likely be limited. Your call.

These are the players who are INACTIVE:

John Brown (WR - ARI) is confirmed out for tonight’s bout with Seattle.

Dwayne Washington (RB - DET) still out with an ankle injury.

Jordan Reed (TE - WAS) still out with a concussion.

Doug Martin (RB - TB) is out for today’s game.

Laquon Treadwell (WR - MIN) inactive for today.

Carlos Hyde (RB - SF) is out today.

Eddie Royal (WR - CHI) is out.

** A few reminders that you should already know: Eddie Lacy (RB - GB) is now on IR, and Josh Brown (K - NYG) is on the Commissioner Exempt List (definitely not playing).

Players available on the waiver wire:

WR: If Kenny Britt (WR - LA) is around, you could snag him and hope for a decent amount of points today (ESPN 43% owned).

RB: Mike Davis (RB - SF) could take the majority of today’s reps since Carlos Hyde is out, and is owned in only 3% of ESPN leagues. Zach Zenner (RB - DET) could also be in line for some work with Washington missing another game and Theo Riddick out. (ESPN 2% owned)

Tight End: If Hunter Henry (TE - SD) is still available, he’s my top choice. Otherwise, Cameron Brate (TE - TB) is available in 30% of ESPN leagues. He’s coming off a bye and could have a decent outing against the 49ers.
