Most of the players from our most recent Week 4 injury report are ready to play in Week 4.
However, there are still a few key starters who will be a game-time decision. Unfortunately, a lot of these players are on the Washington Redskins and play Monday night.
Let’s jump right in and take a look at some of the big-name players dealing with injuries…
Week 4 Injury Report Update for Quarterbacks
Sam Bradford, Minnesota Vikings
As we noted in our first injury report update, Sam Bradford is out for Week 4. We will see how Case Keenum performs against the Detroit Lions, a team that’s currently allowing the fifth-fewest Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.
Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
Newton wasn’t listed on the Panthers final injury report, so he should be ready to go against the New England Patriots.
But because of his struggles thus far in 2017, you should look elsewhere for a starting quarterback this week.
Week 4 Injury Report Update for Running Backs
Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers
He’s been a Fantasy asset over the last two weeks, but a hip injury is making Hyde a game-time decision against the Arizona Cardinals.
If you are a Hyde owner, make sure to add Matt Breida to your roster now.
Rob Kelley, Washington Redskins
Kelley is listed as questionable with a rib injury, but he was able to practice on Saturday. The problem, though, is Kelley will not play until Monday.
He had a strong performance in Week 2 with 78 rushing yards on 12 carries, but you’re rolling the dice if you start him Monday. He also hasn’t caught a pass this year, which adds to his downside for Week 4.
Week 4 Injury Report Update for Wide Receivers
Jamison Crowder, Washington Redskins
Kirk Cousins might not have enough players to target on Monday, as Crowder is listed as questionable. He’s dealing with a hamstring issue, and he’s been disappointing thus far for Fantasy owners.
He hasn’t recorded more than 52 receiving yards in any one game this season.
John Brown, Arizona Cardinals
Brown hasn’t played since Week 1, but coach Bruce Arians said he should be able to play in Week 4. If he does, Brown will still most likely be used in a limited capacity.
Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins
Stills has a hand injury, but he traveled with the Dolphins to London and was able to practice in full Friday. He has one touchdown in two games so far this season.
Week 4 Injury Report Update for Tight Ends
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins
Reed was able to practice all week, but it’s tough to trust him with a shoulder, chest, and toe injury. If you haven’t added him yet, run out and grab Vernon Davis in case Reed can’t start.
Tyler Eifert, Cincinnati Bengals
Eifert is officially ruled out for Week 4.
Tyler Kroft will take his place, but the better play to focus on is A.J. Green in daily leagues.
