Some Week 13 news you can use
Courtesy of our friends at FantasyPros…
🟢 McCaffrey good to go. Christian McCaffrey should have no limitations on Sunday. It is not clear who will take over the Elijah Mitchell role between Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price. Jimmy Garoppolo hinted it could be Mason.
📈 Fields set to start. Justin Fields seems to be better off than he was before and carries no injury designation against the Packers. With another full practice under his belt, a healthy Fields garners immediate consideration as a starter with his rushing upside.
🤞 There’s hope for studs Jacobs and Chase. Raiders Coach Josh McDaniels is “hopeful” that Josh Jacobs will be ready for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Ja’Marr Chase was a full participant in practice on Friday and is looking good to start. Leonard Fournette also appears well on track to make his return on Monday against the Saints.
😕 Mixon remains a question mark: Joe Mixon was limited in practice all week long and still needs to clear concussion protocol in order to play this week. However, head coach Zac Taylor sounded optimistic when discussing Mixon’s status.
🤕 Carter doubtful; Dobbins out. Fantasy managers desperate for RB help have their choice of Ty Johnson or Zonovan Knight from the Jets’ backfield. Meanwhile, the Ravens will likely continue to run Gus Edwards as the team’s RB1 after he paced the team in carries against the Jaguars.
