news: Steelers RB Nagy Harris Expected to be active in Week 2 against the Patriots.
What does that mean in fiction: When asked about his foot injury, Harris told SiriusXM’s sports radio Mad Dog “I’m fine” and that he plans to play in the Steelers’ week two opener at Acrisure Stadium. He also dealt with a Lisfranc sprain during training camp, which means Harris is dealing with multiple injuries, and we’re just entering week two. This is my biggest concern. Jaylyn Warren It should be added to your list as a contingency plan if you have Harris on your list.
news: ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler mentioned that WR chargers Kenan Allen It is “unlikely” that you will play in Week Two against the Chiefs.
What does that mean in fiction: Allen was injured in the first half of the Chargers’ Week 1 win over the Raiders. With the veteran receiver out, Josh Palmer is steadily working on flexible radar.

Field Yates explains the fictional value of Dameon Pierce after Rex Burkhead takes a heavy burden on Texas.
What does that mean in fiction: The much-appreciated sleep ended up playing only 29% of the Texas attack shots and ended up with 12 touches during Rex Burkhead He played 71% of the shots, and finished with 19 touches and 70 yards. It’s important to stick with Pierce, as Smith mentioned that blocking and receiving passes are two areas where he could improve. At this point in Pierce’s career, Burkhead does these things best.
news: ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler stated that the Cowboys would not trade for a quarterback at this time.
What does that mean in fiction: Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on Tuesday that Duck Prescott He will not be placed on an injured reserve and can return in the fifth week. This is an optimistic timeline, and fantasy directors know how Russell Wilson I performed last season after coming back too soon from a similar injury. Since 2016, the Cowboys have been 5-6 without Prescott on top of it. In those games, Dallas averages just 21 points per game for a quarterly total of 43. Cooper Rush It should only be taken into account in the deepest of the Premier Leagues.
news: ESPN’s Yates field mentioned it T Montgomery He was put on injured reserve by the Patriots.
What does it mean in fiction: Montgomery will not be available for at least four matches as he recovers from a knee injury. Ramondry Stevenson It will likely fill his place as the Patriots’ third rusher and pass hunter. He’s on the flex radar in Week 2 against the Steelers.

What does that mean in fiction: Bourne was involved in a pre-season battle in joint training with the Panthers and was also late to the team meeting, according to Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston. Bourne’s playing time is expected to increase, having only played twice against the Dolphins in his first week. Patriots owner Robert Kraft was adamant that he wanted Bourne on the court and out of Matt Patricia’s — not Bill Belichick’s — home. It might be worth taking a tour of Bourne in deeper formats if you have the space.
