Latest Player News

All Player News
  • WAS Wide Receiver #4
    The Commanders held a walkthrough on Monday as they prepare for their short week before facing the Bears on Thursday night, so this is just an estimation. Samuel played the entirety of the Commanders’ Week 4 loss to the Eagles so it’s interesting to see him pop up as a DNP the following day. His situation will be one to monitor heading into Week 5’s matchup against the Bears, but he could still log a limited session come Tuesday. Despite a strong 7/51 line against the Eagles, Samuel will be hard to trust as anything more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.
  • WAS Wide Receiver #1
    Dotson briefly left Week 4 against the Eagles with an ankle injury but returned to catch the game-tying touchdown at the end of regulation. Despite playing on a short week ahead of Thursday night’s matchup against the Bears, Dotson has a good shot to suit up in Week 5 after gutting out Sunday’s game. Dotson caught 4-of-9 targets against the Eagles, and can be looked to as a fringe WR3/WR4 against the Bears.
  • BUF Cornerback #27
    White has now suffered season-ending injuries in two of his last three seasons, with the last being a torn ACL suffered in 2021. The Bills All-Pro corner will now miss the remainder of 2023, closing his season with 12 tackles, and one interception while earning a PFF coverage grade of 76.7. Assuming all goes well with his surgery, White should be ready for training camp next season.
  • DAL Linebacker #11
    Parsons briefly exited Sunday’s game against the Patriots but returned and finished out the game. Parsons’ status heading into Week 5 against the 49ers will be one to monitor, but the early expectation is he’ll play on Sunday and be limited in practice on Wednesday.
  • MIA Tackle #72
    Armstead exited in the second quarter of Sunday’s Week 4 loss to the Bills and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. The oft-injured lineman has already been ruled out for at least one game, with McDaniel adding he will “play again this season.” It sounds like Armstead, who regularly battles through injuries, could be at risk to miss more than one game, but McDaniel isn’t rushing to rule out the modern day gladiator for more than next week. Kendall Lamm took over at left tackle after Armstead left the game and could be in line to start vs. the Giants.
  • CIN Quarterback #9
    Was this ever really in question? Sure, the Bengals are 1-3 and averaging 12.3 points per game. And Burrow undoubtedly still dealing with the calf injury that’s slowed him all season, but a slowed Joe Burrow is almost certain to give the Bengals a better chance at winning than a fully-healthy Jake Browning. Things are getting late quick for the Bengals, who need to turn things around in what should be a winnable game against the Cardinals. With that said, the Cardinals have played four tough games despite their 1-3 record, and could get their second win against a flailing Bengals offense. Burrow starting in what’s basically a must-win game was always going to be the answer.
  • BAL EDGE #90
    It’s a weird way for Harbaugh to phrase it, but it sounds like Ojabo has a decision to make on whether or not to have season-ending surgery. We don’t know the particulars on Ojabo’s injuries, but the second-year pass rusher was placed on injured reserve last weekend and will miss at least three more games after being sidelined for Week 4. With Ojabo already on injured reserve, he and the team don’t have to rush to a decision, but we’d expect one to be reached sooner rather than later.
  • CIN Wide Receiver #5
    Speaking on Monday, Higgins said he doesn’t anticipate his injury to sideline him for an extended period of time, and wouldn’t rule out playing in Week 5. It will be interesting to see how the Bengals’ 1-3 start could factor into Higgins decision to play, as the Bengals have gotten off to a wildly unexpected start and are struggling mightily on offense, ranking dead last in points per game (12.3). Higgins’ status will be one to monitor when the Bengals hit the practice field on Wednesday.
  • IND Running Back #28
    Taylor’s 21-day practice window will officially open on Wednesday. The simultaneously injured and disgruntled running back is reportedly still in search of a trade that appears unlikely to come at this point in the season, leaving him with few options outside of playing out the remainder of this season. We’ll see if Taylor is ready to go in Week 5 when the Colts take on the Titans, but fantasy managers who opted to stash him could soon be rewarded for their patience.
  • TEN Tackle #77
    Skoronski underwent an emergency appendectomy earlier this season and has missed the last three games as a result. Now, head coach Mike Vrabel said he expects Skoronski to return to practice this week, leaving the door open for a possible return in Week 5 against the Colts. We’ll know more about Skoronski’s status as practice begins on Wednesday.
