Fantasy Football Injuries week seven

Leonard Fournette will be a game-time decision. Even if Fournette plays, one has to wonder how much work Chris Ivory will get. The Jaguars must be careful with the player that is essentially their whole offense this season.

Both Ravens wide receivers Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin are listed as questionable. Each is expected to play.

Devante Parker, Dolphins, has not practiced so he is not likely to play.

New York Giants wide receiver corps continues to be decimated by injuries but they could get Sterling Shephard back this week. He is a game-time decision and my guess is he plays.

“What’s best for him”

Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn uttered that phrase while discussing Keenan Allen’s injury. Coach Mike Mularkey has uttered a similar phrase while discussing DeMarco Murray’s hamstring injury. Both are more likely in than out, but game-time decisions.

Chris Hogan was taken off the Patriots injury report so he should be fine.

Delanie Walker suffered a calf injury during practice this week. While there is concern, this is trending toward that he will play.

Likely to return

Mohammed Sanu, Jameis Winston, and Jordan Matthews are all likely to return this week.

Cornerback Injuries for matchups

The Green Bay Packers secondary has been hit by the injury bug which could be favorable news for the Saints wide receivers.

Jason McCourty and Jabril Peppers are unlikely to play making the Browns secondary ill-prepared to stop Marcus Mariota and the Titans passing game.

The Bills have two cornerbacks injured- EJ Gaines and Leonard Johnson. Each is listed as questionable and trending toward not playing. This is favorable for the Bucs receivers.

Pacman Jones is doubtful which is good news for Antonio Brown and the Steelers.

The Colts have four members of their secondary listed as questionable. Will Blake Bortles air it out? Can he succeed?

Kevin Johnson continues to be out for the Texans, but they have been without him since week two.

The Patriots pass defense has three cornerbacks out this week. This is quite favorable for Julio Jones and the Falcons.

“The other guy” in the Seattle Seahawks secondary, the only one that isn’t an all-pro talent…Jeremy Lane is doubtful this week. The Seahawks face the depleted Giants receiving corps though.

The Redskins have five members of their secondary listed as questionable. This is favorable for the Eagles offense.
