Keep reading for the latest fantasy football rankings, news, and DFS picks for Week 18! Best of luck.
Some Week 18 news you can use
Derrick Henry, who missed last week’s game, appears to be healthy and should be heavily relied upon Saturday, especially considering the Titans’ unstable QB situation.
Jalen Hurts should be expected to play at this point. Though the opposition could be resting a lot of their starters on Sunday. Hurts will face a possible (likely) in-game move to the bench if (when) the game becomes a blowout.
Miles Sanders was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday before logging a full practice on Friday. He will be a high-end RB2 play this week.
Christian McCaffrey is off the injury report, but it’s possible McCaffrey plays very limited snaps to keep him healthy for the playoffs. Elijah Mitchell is expected to be activated so he will be able to see some touches.
Brian Robinson Jr. is out. Facing a top-tier Dallas defense, the Commanders will have a new-look offense led by QB Sam Howell with RB Jonathan Williams leading the charge.
