WEEK 15: Free to receive
Elijah Mitchell injury update
Mitchell (concussion, knee) tends to have to play against the Bengals all week, but there’s a good chance he could play against Atlanta. As usual, we’ll have to update with the latest practice reports by Sunday, but Mitchell is pretty much the one to start if he can go.
Atlanta gave up the seventh fantasy score for RB, so we like Mitchell as RB15 in standard and RB14 in PPR. Jeff Wilson Jr failed in two games where he was a major return, but much of that had to do with Deebo Samuel making a lot of important touchdowns. That said, Wilson would still attract some versatile appeal if Mitchell were absent, even though he is clearly taking the risk.
D’Andre Swift Injury Update
Despite rumors last week that Swift (as) could join IR, Dan Campbell said he hopes Swift will play in Week 15 with the Cardinals. Swift’s owners are certainly keen to get him back, but right now he seems more “suspicious” than “questionable”.
If he plays, you have to start him, even in a tough match with the Cardinals. His average yards per take and other rush numbers won’t impress you, but we’ve seen what he can do with explosive runs and in-game passing. . A high RB1 finish, at least in PPR, is always on the table, no matter the match. If he is out, Jamaal Williams (see below) should be seen as a suitable RB2 or flex pick.
Chase Edmonds . Injury Update
Edmonds (ankle) was a game-time scratch for Monday night against the Rams, but coach Kliff Kingsbury has said he will play in Week 15. That’s no guarantee, of course, but we’ll see. Arizona plays Detroit, and while that screams for an intriguing game, it’s still unclear what Edmonds role will be in his first game back. It is often difficult to predict how things will turn out when an explosion is possible. If Edmonds is fully utilized in the reception game, he might not get much work.
All things considered, we rate Edmonds as RB25 in standard and RB21 in PPR . tournaments. Even if this game is out of the question, the match is too strong and we just saw Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon beat the Lions in a one-on-one situation. If he goes out, James Conner has an overall RB1 increase.
Jamaal Williams COVID update
Williams (substitute/COVID) missed Week 14 against Denver, and Craig Reynolds acted as main defender instead of Godwin Igwebuike or Jermar Jefferson. We’re sure there are plenty of fantasy owners who started one of those, so hopefully Williams and/or Swift will return and we won’t have to deal with that nonsense anymore. Obviously, Williams’ fantasy prospects depend on Swift’s availability, but in a tough game against Arizona, he reckons no better than an RB2.
We rank Williams as RB33 in standard and RB30 in PPR . tournaments if Swift can’t go. At that range, he’ll have plenty of starting lineups, but he risks massive bankruptcy if his use of the game isn’t there.
Darrell Henderson COVID update
Henderson (reserve/COVID) will obviously have to clear protocols to be ready to take on Seattle. Seattle has given up second most fantasy spots for the RBs, so if Henderson plays, he could have a nuclear performance. If he’s out, that’s the reason for Michel.
However, during Henderson’s absence, Michel has played well and it is likely he will start eating into Henderson’s workload upon his return. That said, we rate Henderson conservatively as RB17 in standard and RB23 in PPR . tournaments. His advantage is higher, but there are red flags here as the backyard is likely to become a committee.
