Kyler Murray injury update
UPGRADE: Murray stayed on the sidelines Thursday, but again, the expectation is that he will play. Colt McCoy is the backup in Arizona for those in two-quarterback / superflex leagues.
Murray (ankle) he was sidelined on WednesdayAnd don’t be surprised if he misses practice on Thursday, too. Kliff Kingsbury said he’s comfortable with Murray playing even if he doesn’t practice all week. That being said, this feels like a resting situation for the third-year QB, and the panic meter for his Week 9 status is pretty low.
Murray is an elite fantasy quarterback, and San Francisco yields the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks, so we like it. Murray ranked QB3. Even if his career is a bit limited, he is more than capable of putting monstrous numbers in the air against a struggling secondary.
Dak Prescott injury update
UPGRADE: Prescott was upgraded to a full participant for Thursday’s practice and He said “it’s safe to say” that he will play Denver this week.
Prescott (calf) practiced on Wednesday and is expected to be ready for practice on Thursday. There is reportedly a very different feeling heading into this week versus last week, and Prescott is expected to return to action against the Broncos. Barring any hiccups, feel comfortable with him in your lineup.
We rank him as our QB6 for Week 9. Denver has looked great on defense at times, but strong offenses have been able to get away with it. Now, short of Von Miller, the Cowboys should add up big numbers against the Broncos.
