Injuries and Waiver Wire week 2 2022




Jacoby Brissett (Ankle) - Brissett told reporters after Sunday's game that he was dealing with an ankle injury but should be fine to play on Thursday night.

Trey Lance (Ankle) - Lance had surgery on his fractured (and dislocated) ankle and is expected to miss the rest of the season.



Giovani Bernard (Ankle) - Bernard left the game with an ankle injury.

James Conner (Ankle) - Conner suffered an ankle injury and did not return.

Tyrion Davis-Price (Ankle) - TDP suffered a high-ankle sprain and is expected to miss "a few weeks." The 49ers have promoted RB Marlon Mack to their active roster.



Devin Duvernay (Concussion) - Duvernay was placed in concussion protocol after Sunday's game.

Jerry Jeudy (Shoulder) - Jeudy suffered a shoulder injury during the first quarter and did not return. He is considered day-to-day.



Tyler Kroft (Knee) - Kroft was ruled out after suffering a knee injury.

Drew Sample (Knee) - Sample injured his knee and did not return.




Carson Wentz (WAS) - Wentz has started the 2022 season off on fire, scoring over 25 fantasy points in two straight games. In week three, he should be in another shootout game against the Eagles.

Trevor Lawrence (JAX) - Lawrence had a very good showing in week two, totaling 235 yards, two touchdowns, and 18.50 fantasy points vs the Colts. He gets great matchup vs the Chargers in week three, who have allowed the second-most passing yards to the opposing quarterback this season. Lawrence will also likely be playing from behind in this one, which means he will probably have to throw more passing attempts.

Also consider:
Justin Fields (CHI)



Darrel Williams (ARI) - Cardinals starting RB James Conner suffered an injury in week two, and Williams was the next man up. He totaled 59 yards on eight carries and got into the end zone for a TD.

Nyheim Hines (IND) - The Colts are quite thin at receiver now, and they need all the pass catchers they can get. Enter pass-catching RB Nyheim Hines, who had four receptions for 37 yards on Sunday vs the Jaguars. Hines won't see starter-like snaps, but he should be involved in the gameplan on a weekly basis.

Eno Benjamin (ARI) - Another name to consider adding is Eno Benjamin, an intriguing second-year prospect. This will likely be a two-man committee if Conner is forced to miss significant time. In week three, the Cardinals face the Panthers, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing RBs.

Also Consider:
Kenneth Gainwell (PHI), Brian Robinson (WAS), Jordan Mason (SF)



Garrett Wilson (NYJ) - Garrett Wilson broke out in a big way in week two. Wilson had 14 targets, eight receptions, 102 yards and two TDs on Sunday, showing that he can be that number one receiver the Jets drafted him to be. The rookie hopes to build on this performance next week vs the Bengals.

Jahan Dotson (WAS) - The first-round rookie pick scored two touchdowns on five targets in week one, which was great to see. In week two, Dotson followed it up with another great performance, hauling in four catches (five targets) for 59 yards and a TD. I'd expect this type of production to continue from week to week, with his role growing as the season goes on.

Curtis Samuel (WAS) - Samuel has had an incredible start to this fantasy season, scoring 19.20 and 22.90 fantasy points in each of the first two weeks. He's technically the third receiver for the Commanders, but he is also used as a rusher at times, making him even more valuable.

Also Consider:
Chris Olave (NO), Devin Duvernay (BAL), Jakobi Meyers (NE)



Evan Engram (JAX) - Engram might not have the same upside he once had as a former first-round selection, but he could be a solid addition if you're in a pinch. He had four receptions for 28 yards in week one, and followed that up with eight targets, seven receptions and 46 yards in week two. Follow the targets.

Logan Thomas (WAS) - Thomas is on a team with a lot of mouths to feed, so his production might be a bit volatile, but he showed in week two that he can have some productive weeks, as he earned five targets and caught three of them for 37 yards and a touchdown.
