Latavius Murray, RB, NO

Murray exited with a thigh injury in the Saints' Wild Card game versus the Bears late. The Saints mostly had the game locked up by the start fourth quarter so his return wasn't needed. If he does miss the Divisional Round, Alvin Kamara would be in for a monstrous workload. Ty Montgomery would likely be active but only serve as a deep backup.

Jared Goff and John Wolford, QBs, LAR

Ian Rapoport reported that both Goff and Wolford "should be ok." If both are in the ballpark of healthy, Goff would obviously start for the Rams. He led the team to an upset win over the Seahawks despite Wolford briefly starting before injuring his neck.

Cooper Kupp, WR, LAR

Kupp suffered a knee contusion versus the Seahawks and missed the final few plays but is expected to be healthy for their Divisional Round matchup with the Packers. The Rams are severe underdogs here but the negative game-script should create a solid fantasy environment for Kupp and Robert Woods.

Ronald Jones, RB, TB

Jones was technically active for the Bucs' Wild Card win over Washington. However, his thigh contusion swelled up before the game kicked off and he was functionally inactive. If he can't go in the Divisional Round, Leonard Fournette will dominate the backfield work for Tampa Bay. Fournette rushed 19 times and added four receptions for a total of 132 yards and a touchdown. If Jones is able to play, he likely returns to see most of the work between the tackles while giving up passing downs.

Zack Moss, RB, BUF

The Bills fear that Zack Moss will miss the rest of the playoffs with an ankle injury. That could put Devin Singletary in line for a solid workload as long as the Bills can hold a lead against the Ravens. The Buffalo backfield only combined for 10 carries last week but they also saw a collective seven looks in the passing game. If all of that volume is funneled to one player, they would become a top-five running back in the Divisional Round.
