Will CeeDee Lamb play week 9?

Lamb (ankle) looks really “questionable” after missing practice on Thursday and participating in a limited session on Friday. This is apparently a new injury for Lamb, who suffered the setback during practice Wednesday. It will be a game-time decision for the Cowboys against the Broncos.

If Lamb is out, it’s hard to know what to say about the other Dallas receivers. Amari Cooper (hamstring) is also “questionable”, and Michael Gallup (calf) is unofficially “questionable” while waiting to get out of IR. Whoever plays will have considerable value in Dallas’ powerful offense. Assuming Lamb is active, it’s still a must-start.

Will Rashod Bateman play Week 9?

Bateman (groin) I did not practice on Friday, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Friday the injury was a “minor physical problem“and hinted that Bateman had a good chance of facing the Vikings.

The rookie wide receiver has been a solid producer in recent games, but with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) also “questionable” and possibly up to the task, Bateman’s outlook is a bit more clouded. If Bateman is active, consider it a flex, especially if Watkins is active too. If Bateman is out and Watkins is active, consider the veteran WR a low-end deep league flex.

Will Kenny Golladay play week 9?

Golladay (knee) was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, but The Athletic writer Dan Duggan reported Saturday that Golladay is I expected to play against the Raiders this week.

With Sterling Shepard (quad) out, Golladay should be in line for regular goals. However, the Giants catcher’s situation has been a disaster all year, in large part due to injuries. It’s always hard to tell how things will turn out, but Golladay has at least flexible value given his upside touchdown. If you’re out, expect a lot of goals for Kadarius Toney and New York’s tight ends.

Will Cole Beasley play Week 9?

Beasley (ribs) I managed to get into a limited session on Friday after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. It’s officially “questionable” for Buffalo’s game against Jacksonville.

Buffalo may be more likely to resist Beasley given the inferior opponent, but the weekend update is a good sign. If Beasley plays it will be a solid top-end WR3 / flex across all formats. If out, Gabriel Davis would get a huge increase in value, as his arrow was already pointing upward thanks to the absence of TE Dawson Knox (hand).

Cooper (hamstring) doesn’t seem to be as “questionable” as Lamb, but he’s listed that way nevertheless before Dallas’ game against Denver. The veteran receiver I did limited practice all week.

Cooper’s situation is similar to Lamb’s. If he plays, he must start. It could be even more valuable if Lamb and / or Gallup are out. If Cooper is out, Gallup (if he plays) will have WR3 / flex value, but TE Dalton Schultz could benefit as well. You most likely don’t have to worry about Cooper, so put him in your lineup for now.
