The Sunday morning injury updates are coming in, and it sounds like more relevant people are playing than not. Here's the rundown of some of the bigger names, and whether they're in or out, according to Schefter, Rapoport et al.

  • The biggest one involves Justin Herbert (ribs) pushing to play. However, it would require a pain-killing injection, which as Tyrod Taylor might argue is a procedure not without some degree of risk. In my own lineups I am making the decision to bench Herbert for a backup, in my case Matthew Stafford. Same game, Keenan Allen (hamstring) wants to play, but it doesn't look safe to use him; I'm sitting him.

  • Jakobi Meyers isn’t a huge star, but he’s been New England’s No. 1, and facing a struggling Ravens pass defense. But Meyers (knee) is not expected to play today, per Schefter.

  • Alvin Kamara (ribs) is expected to play for the Saints. I would use Kamara as ranked.

  • James Conner (ankle) is a little less certain. According to Schefter, he's going to test it out during pregame warmups. Rams-Cardinals is a later start. I have Conner on a team and am leaning toward sitting him for a lower-ranked option, just because of the uncertainty.

  • D'Andre Swift (ankle) sounds good to go; a Lions beat writer expects a larger role than a week ago. Swift should be safe to use.

  • J.K. Dobbins should be active for the Ravens today. I would not consider starting him, facing a usually tough Patriots defense, and more importantly because he will probably not get a full workload -- I wouldn't be counting on more than 10-12 carries. Nobody needed to be told not to use the likes of Drake-Davis-Hill, but I think Dobbins will likely share work with a couple of those backs.

  • Sounds like several of the questionable Bucs - Leonard Fournette, Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman - are expected to play. Less likely is Julio Jones (knee). Recommendation is to use Fournette, not Jones. Guys like Gage and Perriman...I mean, how deep is your league? There have to be better options. Cole Beasley was activated from the practice squad, so he could reasonably catch a few balls.

  • Same game, Randall Cobb (illness) should play. Christian Watson (hamstring), probably not. Allen Lazard looks like the clear top receiving option for the Packers.

  • Gabe Davis (ankle) is expected to play for Buffalo.

  • In the night game, Jerry Jeudy (shoulder, rib) is expected to play for the Broncos. I think Courtland Sutton will be the clear No. 1 in this game, and would sit Jeudy for a comparable option. But sounds like he's playing; just might be worthwhile to make sure you have another option going either in this game or the Monday game just in case. (But I'm overly cautious; sounds like he'll be active and in the lineup.)

When in doubt, use the Friday rankings, which present plenty of "if active" scenarios. If I see other significant injury updates between now and the early kickoffs, I'll post in the comments below.
