DFS NFL WR Coach: Week 4 Cover Image
Ryan Shazier Headshot

Ryan Shazier (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

The knee injury stems from Week 1 and has lingered now for three weeks as we head into the quarter mark of the season. The linebacker missed Wednesday's practice as well and now is squarely in the questionable category as the Steelers will try to get back on track against the Chiefs on Sunday Night football. L.J. Fort should get more snaps if Shazier can't go in full for Week 4.

Dez Bryant Headshot

Dez Bryant tweeted that he received "great feedback" from Dr. James Andrews regarding the hairline fracture in his knee and is being listed as day-to-day.

There are differing reports involving the star wideout's broken knee and this one has the shortest time frame possible. When reports first surfaced the news was that he could miss three weeks, then others put it at 5-6 weeks he could be out. Either way however it seems very unlikely that he will be playing in Week 4 even if he is listed as day-to-day. Right now having him out of your lineup(s) would be the smart decision until he is listed as active and in uniform of Sunday's tilt.

Eli Rogers Headshot

Eli Rogers (toe) did not practice on Thursday.

Rogers has been dealing with turf toe and has been considered questionable for Week 4. There's a good chance he misses this week against Kansas City which should boost the value to those behind him on the depth chart such as Sammie Coates.

Isaiah Crowell Headshot

RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Crowell should be 100% as the Browns take on the Redskins in Week 4, making him a solid RB2. He's currently second in the league in rushing yards, averaging 6.1 YPC, and has scored twice. This figures to be a high-scoring game this weekend.

Devon Travis Headshot

Devon Travis (shoulder) returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup on Thursday.

Travis has been out since Monday after injuring his shoulder in the brawl with the Yankees. He's starting at second base tonight and batting ninth against Ubaldo Jimenez.

Kris Bryant Headshot

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Thursday.

Bryant is getting the night off as Tommy La Stella will bat leadoff and start at third base tonight. Bryant should be back in the lineup tomorrow.

DeSean Jackson Headshot

DeSean Jackson (knee/ankle) will be ready to go Week 4 against the Browns barring a setback.

Jackson has been listed as limited in order to help manage his reps, but he should be ready to roll this weekend as the Redskins face off against a porous Browns defense. DJax makes for an interesting tournament play given his boom or bust nature.

Anthony Rizzo Headshot

Anthony Rizzo is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Thursday.

The Cubs are resting a few starters, including Rizzo, as he gives way to Javy Baez at first base, batting fifth against rookie Rob Zastryzny.
