UPDATE: 11:31 Saturday morning
The Tennessee Titans were our outside of the box pick for winning Super Bowl LVI in February, but this long shot looks especially dicey because of its injury-prone receiving core.
The Titans would be without their top two wideouts, AJ Brown And Julio Jones, for Sunday’s easy walk against the lowly New York Jets.
Who will pick up Slack? we’re guessing Ryan Tannehill directs to the nearest Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, who took four catches and one touchdown after the stars fell in Indianapolis last week.
The New York Giants are also hurt in the situation. Both Darius Slayton And sterling shepard Sunday’s game against New Orleans has been ruled out. it would be a little boost Kenny Golladay and cheaters Kadarius Tony.
Houston’s other receivers dismissed for Week 4 danny amendolamilf atlanta russell gauge and green bay Marx Valdez-Scantling, who has landed in the injured reserve list.
As much as Rob Gronkowski Brady would love to attend the Bowl, the Tampa tight end now listed as suspicious due to his rib injury. So the Bucs QB will have to rely on his other dozen suitable passing goals in New England.
Players listed as suspects this afternoon include running back to San Francisco Eliza MitchellDenver RB melvin gordon, pittsburgh wideout Chase Claypool and Chicago WR darnell mooney.

Generally, it is considered good luck to hold one of the top two positions in the fantasy football snake draft. But once again this year, it has turned into a curse, at least in the short term.
Choose Consensus No. 1 Christian McCaffrey The Carolina Panthers went down in last week’s game in Houston and is expected to miss several weeks.
number 2 pick dalvin cook No action was taken last week due to an ankle sprain. He could be back this week, which would be great for the Vikings and any fantasy mavens who depend on him.
That’s why many people need a short-term solution to the running back position. The problem is that the wardrobe is bare. There are likely to be only a handful of options available on your discount strings, and none of them would be described as optimal:
Chuba Hubbard (Panthers) – McCaffrey’s replacement for the next two weeks had 14 touches for 79 yards in CMC’s relief. Coach Matt Ruhle says he’ll get most of the carry, even though he’s only glimpsed the Oklahoma State sophomore, who ran 2,094 yards in 2019. But he still likes the No. 1 discount this week. by one mile.
Alexander Mattison (Vikings) – We hardly noticed that Cook was gone because his grasp was 32 touches for 171 yards in the big win over Seattle. He can certainly do well again on Sunday if he starts. But it’s too big if. If Cook injures himself again, Mattison should have nothing more than a flex play this week, as he’s not used to.
Peyton Barber (attacker) – Josh Jacobs was out for Las Vegas, so Barber stepped in and ran for 111 yards and a TD. We’re guessing that surprised everyone, including the barber. We’d be even more surprised, though, if Barber’s tenure in the starting lineup extends to more than one additional game.
Ramondre Stevenson (Patriot) – Versatile James White went down last week with a hip injury, and New England will need to build up their backfield production somewhere. So what about this Oklahoma rookie who has been on the bench since a crucial Week 1. Will Bill Belichick Continue to Complain? quite possibly.
JD McKissick (Washington) – WFT’s No. 2 back has been under the radar this season. Just 15 touches for 139 yards in three matches. But compared to the other dudes on this list, McKisick’s current role will span an entire season, not just a two-week cameo. If you are desperate…
While an unbeaten Denver may not be entirely legit, its defense is sure. Forget about starting Baltimore Ty’son Williams. In fact, don’t start any crows other than Lamar Jackson And Mark Andrews (And don’t even think about starting a stone hand: marquis brown. …there’s also no Patriots that you can feel confident about starting at Brady Bowl. … Pittsburgh’s crime is struggling, and Nazi Harris Against Green Bay again. … two runners who are usually no-brainer starters will have another tough week ahead: The Giants’ Saxon Barclay Against the Saints and Jaguars James Robinson vs Bengal.
of Cincinnati who bur It’s starting to heat up, and he’ll be very hot again Thursday night against the Jaguars without a win. … other QBs we like this week include the Raiders. Derek karr Against Chargers and Titans Ryan Tannehill Against the Jets living below. … both the buffaloes are running after, Devin Singletary And jack moss, must feast on Houston. …other benches we love to bounce back include Washington Antonio Gibson vs Atlanta, Miami Miles Gaskin Vs. Indy and Chicago’s David Montgomery vs Detroit. …and the uncertainty in the Carolina Run game means lots of passes dj moore And Robbie Anderson In the shootout against Dallas.
Most interesting name on this week’s list Rob Gronkowski, who injured his ribs last Sunday and will be deeply disappointed to miss Sunday night’s big reunion in New England. There is little chance that a future Hall of Fame will sit out tight end games, and very little chance tom brady A TD pass or two doesn’t try to force Gronk’s way. … Denver lost KJ Hamler for a knee injury at the end of the season, then Tim Patrick His number 3 goes up to the receiver slot. …the other prime pass catcher listed as suspicious is from Tennessee AJ Brown And Julio Jones, of Pittsburgh JuJu Smith-Shuster, of Cincinnati t higginsmilf san francisco tight end George Kittel‘Giant’ sterling shepard and jets’ eliza moore.
The Paleontological Division of the Loop News team has revealed two ancient deep-sleeping receivers for this week. Deason Jackson Re-emerged to score on a 75-yard touchdown pass with the Rams on Sunday Matthew Stafford, only his fourth score since the 2018 season. He won’t catch many, but more bombs are likely to come from Stafford. …and giving the head Josh Gordon Another chance to revive his career after multiple drug offenses. While the idea of Patrick Mahomes getting someone into the near-catching corps may be tempting, Gordon is at least as likely to blow another test as he is to be a useful fictional substitute.
