Fantasy Football Injury Updates

Fantasy Impact: McCaffrey still practiced, so the Panthers are likely just being cautious with their star. Keep an eye out for updates to see if the situation escalates. McCaffrey is off to a solid start this season but hasn’t exploded the way we’ve come to expect. Should he play Sunday, he faces a stout Saints defense.

Jerry Jeudy (ribs/shoulder) doesn’t practice Thursday

Fantasy Impact: Missing two practices brings Jeudy’s availability for Sunday night’s game against the 49ers into question. If he misses practice on Friday as well, you may want to find a backup plan, such as teammate KJ Hamler who is still available in most leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Pittman is headed in the right direction as long as he can continue to log some practice time this week. The Colts take on the Chiefs this weekend and need all the offensive weapons they can get to attempt to pick up their first win of the season.

Gabriel Davis (ankle) limited in practice Thursday
