MASTER YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2021 Cheat Sheet

Michael Carter injury update

While this preseason was huge for Carter to part ways in the Jets’ backfield, he apparently couldn’t. Now, he’s dealing with an undisclosed injury that could affect his availability in Week 1. If he plays, it’s hard to see a heavy workload (if it was going to happen before the injury). For now, you should probably stay on your bench in Week 1 either way, unless you are really struggling in the position.

Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman have had more first-team reps this offseason anyway, and if you haven’t selected your team yet, they’re cheaper options for throwing a dart.

Carter is currently our RB42 in the standard leagues for Week 1 and moves to RB47 in PPR.

Noah Fant Injury update

Fant has been on the injury report in recent weeks dealing with a leg injury. Nevertheless, expected to prepare for Denver in Week 1. At this point, we don’t expect limitations either. He’ll likely be one of the top 10 projected players each week, and with Teddy Bridgewater taking on the QB1 role in Denver, hopefully he’ll get a more precise set of goals. He seems to be more attractive in the standard leagues, as his game is designed for YAC and big plays at limited opportunities in a talented group of pass receivers. It’s worth noting that Albert Okwuegbunam would be the next man in line at tight end if Fant suffered an unexpected setback before Sunday.

Fant is our TE8 in standard and TE10 in PPR for Week 1.

Jamison Crowder injury update

Crowder was placed on the Jets’ reserve / COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus. While the initial thought was that he would miss the first game of the season (@ Carolina), Robert Saleh said today I may be back just in time. While he won’t necessarily be a very initiated player (or even on the roster), he is worth monitoring as his absence or presence will affect other pass receivers around him. In particular, Elijah Moore will probably look better this week if Crowder is out. Corey Davis shouldn’t be affected as he looks to settle into WR’s number one spot. For Zach Wilson, he’s obviously better off if he has his full complement of pass catchers to work with.

For week 1, Crowder is currently our WR60 on PPR and WR65 on standard. We will adjust these rankings accordingly if you go out before Sunday.

Evan Engram Injury Update

Engram (calf) is now called a long shot to play in Week 1 at home against Denver. He’s often been a regular in the Giants’ injury reports, so the early absence is alarming. Veteran TE Kyle Rudolph is now the starter for Week 1, and he has proven capable of producing decent fantastic starts in recent years.

With the latest news, we assume Engram will be out, so we rate Rudolph accordingly. It is our TE18 in PPR and TE19 in standard. With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and Saquon Barkley (knee) still somewhat battered, Daniel Jones can rely on him this week. If Engram continues to battle injuries, Rudolph is worth watching all season long.
