Will Fuller, Mark Ingram, Adam Thielen, and Others Highlight the NFL Divisional Round Injury Report

The Fantasy Football Trainers room is here to update you on all the key NFL Divisional Round Fantasy Football injuries, while (more importantly) giving you some DFS advice. Not playing DFS this week? Check out our 2020 Fantasy Big Board and Rankings and 2020 Off-season Storylines to start preparing for next season.

Death, taxes, and Will Fuller (groin) being a game-time decision

I could just copy and paste my weekly Will Fuller blurb in here. Once again, the speedy vagina is a “game-time” decision after suffering yet another groin/lower body injury. We all know how much better the offense rolls with Fuller in the lineup. He opens up the entire offense for Deshaun WatsonDeAndre Hopkins, and the rest of the aerial attack. His vertical speed and deep ball tracking skills are the best in the league… when he’s actually on the field.

1/10 Update: The expectation is that Fuller WILL play

If he can go, he’s an intriguing DraftKings play at $5,000. In case you forgot, Fuller dropped not one, not two, but three would-be touchdown passes against this same KC secondary earlier in the season.

Mark Ingram (calf) listed as questionable after sketchy injury

The last time we saw Mark Ingram was late in the season against the Browns when he pulled up with a non-contact injury. Twitter immediately thought it looked like an Achilles injury. However, the Ravens dodged a bullet when they found out their stud running back would likely return for the playoffs after suffering a calf strain.

Adam Schefter believes Ingram will play on Saturday, but Ravens’ beat writer, Jamison Hensley called him a “question mark.” If Ingram can’t go, Gus Edwards would be a DraftKings steal at his $4,900 price tag. Adding Edwards to a DFS lineup would be vital for lineup construction, allowing one to spend up on other spots.

Adam Thielen cuts ankle in practice, will play vs 49ers

This guy just can’t catch a break. After dealing with a handful of lower body injuries, Adam Thielen popped back on the injury report on Wednesday after suffering a pretty severe cut on his ankle. The Vikings plan on keeping the wideout off his feet until Sunday, but when he plays, he’ll don a protective pad on his sliced ankle. He’ll likely be banged up, but he’s a player you should be avoiding anyways at his $6,200 DraftKings price tag.

Players Returning / Good-to-go:

  • Travis Kelce (knee) took it easy this week by practicing in a limited fashion, but will be good to go, and dominate the Texans’ leaky defense
  • Mark Andrews (ankle) has been nursing an injury throughout the season but will play. He serves as a viable DraftKings option at a reasonable $5600.
  • Kenny Stills (knee) has been limited this week but it would be a shock if he missed the Chiefs’ game
  • Jamaal Williams (shoulder) was a full participant in practice this week and will unfortunately cut into Aaron Jones’ workhorse work
  • 49ers DE Dee Ford (hamstring) and LB Kwon Alexander (pec, IR) will both return to action in the Divisional Round
  • Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) is “good to go” and will return after missing the Wild Card Round

Others to Monitor:

  • Seahawks DL Ezekiel Ansah (neck) did not practice this week and is questionable to play this weekend
  • Seahawks LT Duane Brown (knee, biceps) will “try to play” after missing last week’s game

Already/ Obviously Out:

  • Adam Humphries (ankle) will miss his sixth straight game this week
  • Old man Josh McCown tore his hamstring off the bone and will likely head back to retirement after playing in his first career playoff game on Sunday
