Amari Cooper harm replace

Cooper suffered bruised ribs in Week 2 (@ Chargers), however he was in a position to stroll off the sphere on his personal and did not require medical consideration past a fast checkup. For now, his harm is of virtually zero concern and shouldn’t have an effect on his availability or high quality of play. Control him transferring ahead, however it would not seem like there’s a trigger for fear right now.

Jerry Jones has mentioned he “hopes Cooper can play” on Monday in opposition to Philadelphia, however this feels extra like a smoke-screen heading right into a recreation. We’ll replace this additional if issues change. If he does endure a setback, CeeDee Lamb ought to be buried in targets, whereas Cedrick Wilson and the tight ends will get elevated roles within the offense.

For Week 3, Cooper is our WR21 in normal and WR19 in PPR leagues. The Eagles’ protection has regarded spectacular by the primary two weeks of the season, however Cooper continues to be a must-start, even after a down week.

Is Odell Beckham Jr. enjoying in Week 3?

Whereas we will not know for positive but if Beckham (knee) goes to swimsuit up for Week 3 (vs. Bears), all indicators level in that course. In accordance with, he has a “good likelihood” to play. The Browns might actually use him, as Jarvis Landry is coping with an MCL sprain that can sideline him for a couple of weeks. If OBJ does miss once more, Austin Hooper and David Njoku are most likely those who profit essentially the most in fantasy, however Anthony Schwartz, Rashard Higgins, and Donovan Peoples-Jones are the subsequent WRs on the depth chart.

That mentioned, we should mood expectations for Beckham’s first motion. On prime of that, the Browns stay a run-first staff and will not lose sleep over Beckham grabbing only a few targets. The Bears’ protection regarded terrible in opposition to the Rams however regarded stable vs. Cincinnati, so it is robust to understand how good they’re on that facet of the ball. Beckham is available in at WR40 in PPR and in normal leagues in our Week 3 WR rankings, though he does have the expertise to be a game-changer as quickly as he steps on the sphere.

Is Will Fuller enjoying in Week 3?

After lacking Week 1 for a PED suspension and Week 2 for a private matter, Fuller seems to be poised to begin his Dolphins’ profession at Las Vegas in Week 3. We’ll should proceed to observe Tua Tagovailoa’s rib harm, however his X-Rays got here again destructive, so his availability is to be decided.

That mentioned, Fuller takes a slight bump down in rankings if Tua is inactive and Jacoby Brissett is beginning for Miami. We at present rank Dolphins’ pass-catchers as if Brissett would be the man, so whereas they do not fall dramatically, they do fall a little bit bit. For Week 3, Fuller is the WR51 in normal and WR53 in PPR. All it will take is a protracted landing for him to crush these rankings, however it’s robust to justify placing him forward of a few of the guys he trails with all of the uncertainty surrounding his scenario.

Is Evan Engram enjoying in Week 3?

There aren’t a ton of updates on Engram (calf) simply but, however he is progressing and was near enjoying in Week 2. For now, we speculate that he’ll play, however preserve an eye fixed out for additional updates. Oddly sufficient, he may be a man to focus on in DFS. Daniel Jones has regarded fairly stable this yr, and Engram is grime low cost in DFS going in opposition to the Falcons protection. Atlanta has already given up three touchdowns to tight ends by the primary two video games, so it may be price a shot.

We ranked Engram as he might be energetic in Week 3. He is our TE18 in normal leagues and TE16 in PPR. It could appear excessive, however tight finish manufacturing has been putrid over the primary two weeks, much more than we anticipated.
