Is Odell Beckham Jr. playing Week 3?

Beckham’s days on injury reporting appear to be coming to an end. He practiced in full on Wednesday, and his arrival could not have come at a better time with Jarvis Landry (knee) already ruled out for a couple of weeks. All signs point to Beckham returning for the first time since he suffered a torn ACL a season ago.

However, we must moderate expectations for his first action game in almost a year. With Landry out, the Bears will surely have to focus on Beckham. For week 3, it’s our WR40 in the standard and PPR leagues. We know that your advantage is much greater, but we play it safe. If you’re a risk taker, roll the dice here and insert it into your lineups.

Diontae Johnson injury update

Johnson (knee) I did not practice on Wednesday, and he’s likely to carry a “questionable” designation in Week 3. It’s always a must-start if he’s healthy, especially in the PPR leagues. However, if he’s out, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool should see even more targets coming his way. All three have been heavily attacked in a happy passing offense, so they should be in their lineups if Johnson is out against poor Bengals defense. Beyond that, James Washington draws flexible consideration on this one, and TEs Pat Freiermuth and Eric Ebron could see more goals (but it’s not worth starting in most leagues).

For now, we classify Johnson as if he’s going to be active. It is our WR23 in PPR and WR25 in standard leagues.

Amari Cooper injury update

Cooper suffered a rib injury late in his Week 2 game, but was able to walk away on his own. Jerry Jones said he’s “hopeful” that Cooper will be able to play in Week 3, and it appears Cooper tends to be available. It helps that Cooper doesn’t play until Monday night, so he has an extra day to recover. you should start if it is active, but be sure to put it in its flexible place. That way, if he’s declared inactive after Sunday, you’ll have the flexibility to play running back or wide receiver (or tight end if you’re desperate enough.If your team has three solid RBs that you know you want to start with (one in the flexible spot) , go find Cedrick Wilson, Jalen Reagor or Quez Watkins and substitute one at WR if necessary.

For week 3, Cooper is our WR21 on standard and WR19 on PPR. The Eagles defense looks pretty impressive over the course of two weeks, so this could be a game like the one Dallas had against the Chargers, with low scoring, or all shootouts. That said, it has boom or bust potential.
