Will Davante Adams play Week 9?
UPGRADE: Adams has been activated off the reserve / Covid-19 list, so it will be ready to enter your place of WR1
Adams he was not in practice on Wednesdayas it remained on the reserve / COVID list. We are not sure if it will be ready to go or it is simply a matter of having to wait 10 days, as not much information has come out of Green Bay regarding its status. What we do know is that Aaron Rodgers will not play after testing positive for the virus.
With Rodgers out, we have to move Adams a bit, but surely Jordan Love will target Adams a ridiculous amount of times. We moved Adams to the WR5 in PPR other WR6 in standard leagues. His floor could be much lower, but given the showdown with Kansas City, he’s still a must-start if he plays. If not, it’s hard to trust the Packers’ pass receivers, but Allen Lazard would be the No. 1 target.
Julio Jones injury update
UPGRADE: As expected, Jones was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice..
Jones (hamstring) practiced on Wednesday, which feels like a good sign. Now that Derrick Henry (foot) will likely be out for the remainder of the regular season, Tennessee could choose to open its passing game. AJ Brown will remain the number one WR, but Jones has every opportunity to get involved if he can bounce back. He plays Sunday night in a tough showdown with the Rams, so stay tuned.
We classify Julio as the WR26 in PPR leagues other WR25 as standard. We understand if you’re too nervous to play him (or wait until SNF), but he has a 100-yard game on his resume this season and is still second on the team in goals (27), despite missing three games. and get out two games early. Tennessee should have to pass to stay competitive against a stellar Rams offense.
DeAndre Hopkins injury update
UPGRADE: Hopkins also missed Thursday’s practice, so we’ll have to keep an eye on him for Sunday.
Hopkins (hamstring) didn’t practice Wednesday, but he appears to be on the right side of “questionable” heading into a showdown with the 49ers. With 10 days since his last game, Hopkins has had plenty of time to rest. Even with the injury concern, if he’s active, you have to play with him.
In the first meeting between Arizona and San Francisco, Hopkins caught six passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. This 49ers defense isn’t stellar against the pass, so Hopkins ranks as our WR5 as standard other WR6 in the PPR leagues.
Will Calvin Ridley play week 9?
Ridley (staff) is not with the team this week, and we shouldn’t expect him to play. Russell Gage and Tajae Sharpe are the best WRs against New Orleans, which yield the fourth most fantasy points to WR. However, neither of them is likely to be a consistent stud, and Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson will likely be the only Falcons weapons you can rely on.
Noah Fant COVID update
Fant was placed on the reserve / COVID list on Tuesday and must turn in two negative tests 24 hours apart. As usual, there is no reason to speculate, so we’ll see if he can be ready against Dallas. If it’s out, we like Albert Okwuegbunam as at least a TE2 with a TE1 roof. Dallas gives up the ninth most fantasy points to tight ends, so he’d be in a good place if he could start in Fant’s absence.
