Fantasy Injury Updates: Latest News on Michael Pittman Jr., Jonnu Smith, Darnell Mooney, More Affecting Week 2, Launch and Sit ‘Em Calls



We’ve already seen Odell Beckham Jr. (knee), Will Fuller V (staff) and Tyrell Williams (concussion) declared out for this week, but there aren’t many notable pass receivers who are even “questionable” for Sunday. evening games. In fact, the majority of game time decisions may already be on the unhappy side of start and sit decisions. Michael Pittman Jr., Jonnu Smith and Darnell Mooney are the biggest names in the leagues all season, while guys like Jamison Crowder and Gabriel Davis are probably only relevant at DFS contests. Either way, we pride ourselves on providing injury updates even for semi-relevant players so you have all the information at the end of your Week 2 fantasy football lineups.

Will Michael Pittman Jr. play Week 2?

Pittman (ankle) was added to the injury report on Friday, but considering he had limited practice, he still has a good chance of catching up on Sunday against the Rams. It is officially “questionable“(as does wide receiver Parris Campbell, who has an abdominal injury).

Pittman probably won’t be in many fantasy lineups this week, even if he does play, as he could see a lot of Jalen Ramsey. His injury, even a minor one, makes for an even easier call to “sit down”. If Pittman or Campbell are out, Zach Pascal and Indy’s TEs will likely see hitting the targets, but Pascal could get the Ramsey treatment, ultimately reducing his value. Rookie Mike Strachan would likely see more targets as well if Pittman and Campbell are out, but he can’t be trusted either. Obviously this would also reduce the value of QB Carson Wentz, but Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines would see more touches and both would be worth wearing in the standard and PPR leagues.

Will Jonnu Smith play week 2?

Smith (hip) managed limited practice on Thursday and Friday, so despite his official “questionable“Designation, it seems likely that he will play the Jets on Sunday. The Patriots are known to include more players than necessary as” questionable, “and this may be another example of that.

If Smith is active, consider his and Hunter Henry’s low-end TE1 considerations. If Smith is out, Henry becomes a virtual beginner.

Will Darnell Mooney play week 2?

Despite playing through a “questionable” designation last week and being in full practice all week, Mooney (back) once again has the Label “Q” before Chicago’s Week 2 game against the Bengals.

Mooney ended up catching five of seven goals for just 26 yards last week. However, the targets were just as important as the actual (lack) production. It looks like Mooney will be back in a high-volume role, and that should continue in a much more favorable showdown this week. It’s a potential flex in the PPR leagues, but if he’s out, Marquise Goodwin would get a boost in value (though he’s also questionable due to an ankle injury). If one or both are out, TE Cole Kmet, WR Damiere Byrd and the Chicago running backs will see more targets, and Kmet will suddenly become a potential TE1.

Is Gabriel Davis playing week 2?

Davis caught just two of five goals for 40 yards last week, but he reached the end zone and showed why he will be a boom-or-bust WR3 candidate most games. He’s “questionable“for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins despite having two limited practices to close out the week.

It’s hard to recommend playing Davis against a solid defense, but, again, he scored against the Steelers, so the showdown could be irrelevant for a big-play player like him. Still, if it’s not 100 percent, give it another week at your bank. If inactive, Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders are up for grabs as WR3 as they should continue to see stable goals behind Stefon Diggs.

Will Jamison Crowder play week 2?

Crowder missed last week’s game due to COVID protocols, and this week it’s “questionable“Due to a groin injury. He did limited practice Thursday and Friday, so it seems likely that he will make his debut against the Patriots.

Given the showdown and the possibility of Crowder being under 100 percent, it’s best to keep him on his bench (or waiver wire) until we see him in action. The Jets have a lot of similar receivers, and it became clear last week that Corey Davis is the alpha in the WR room now. If Crowder is out, then Denzel Mims or Elijah Moore will see more targets, but they’re also not legitimate fantasy options.
