The Facts: Langford suffered a sprained ankle in Week 3 against the Cowboys and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
Diehards Line:With Langford on the shelf for the next 4-6 weeks, Jordan Howard should see a heavy workload moving forward. Howard is a must add in all fantasy leagues. We would suggest to stash Langford if you’re able to.
The Facts: The Jets claimed recently released tight end Austin Seferian- Jenkins.
Diehards Line:Seferian- Jenkins was released from the Bucs following an arrest on suspicion of DUI. He will get a fresh start in New York. It is unknown, whether the league will take action and suspend Seferian- Jenkins for his arrest. When he is on the field, the talented tight end offers plenty of upside. He is worth adding to your watch list as he could gain some fantasy value at some point this season.
The Facts: Floyd was cleared on the sidelines on Sunday, but had a headache on Monday and will be in the concussion protocol.
Diehards Line:Floyd suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Bills. If he is forced to miss time, John Brown should get a boost in the offense. We should know more on Floyd later in the week. For now, you can consider him questionable for Week 4.
The Facts: Coach Chip Kelly said, "Colin Kaepernick is our number 2 QB. I don't think he's 100% right now so that's why he's our number 2," per the teams Twitter handle.
Diehards Line:Blaine Gabbert has started every game for the Niners this season but has underwhelmed. Through three games, he has thrown 532 passing yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. At this point it appears that Kaepernick could be given the chance to run this offense. It is definitely a situation to monitor, as this can boost the value of this offense. We will monitor this situation and update you as necessary.
The Facts: Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, there is "optimism" that Jennings can return this week.
Diehards Line:Jennings who is dealing with a thumb injury was unable to play in Week 3, but there is hope he will be ready to go for Week 4. There is some urgency here for the Giants as Shane Vereen will miss the rest of the season due to a triceps injury. We will monitor Jennings’ status throughout the week and keep you updated. For now, we recommend having a backup plan in case Jennings can’t play.
The Facts: Langford suffered a sprained ankle in Sunday's loss to the Bears and was unable to return to the game.
Diehards Line:The good news is that it is not an Achilles injury as some reports stated. There is no timetable for his return, so fantasy owners will have to play the wait and see game. Jordan Howard should be added off of waivers as he could play a big role on this offense if Langford misses any time. We will update you on Langford’s status as we hear it.
The Facts: Charles has not played a game this season, but coach Andy Reid said "there's a chance he's out there. We'll see," in regards to Charles.
Diehards Line:Charles who suffered a season ending knee injury last season has not fully healed and has been unable to play this season. There is hope he will make his season debut in Week 4, but it is not guaranteed. He will likely step into a committee role with Spencer Ware. We will keep you posted on his Week 4 status throughout the week.
The Facts: Wilson suffered an MCL sprain in Week 3 against the 49ers.
Diehards Line:Initial reports suggest that Wilson will be good to go for Week 4. For now, fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. We suggest monitoring his status throughout the week. Barring any setbacks, he should play in the team’s next game against the Jets.
The Facts: Rawls suffered a fibula injury in Week 3 against the 49ers and is expected to miss a few weeks.
Diehards Line:With Rawls sidelined for some time, Christine Michael will get the workload for the Seahawks. He is definitely worth adding if he is still available in your league. We will keep an eye on Rawls’ status and update you with any new information regarding his injury and timetable.
