Is Julio Jones taking part in Week 4?

UPDATE: Jones missed follow on Thursday, placing his standing this week in jeopardy.

Jones (leg) was nowhere to be discovered late in his Week 3 matchup with the Colts, nevertheless it was introduced it was extra of a “load administration” scenario than something. Nonetheless, after lacking follow on Wednesday and receiving minor therapy, his Week 4 availability is in query.

This is the take care of Julio — if the Titans’ had a troublesome matchup in Week 4, he’d probably be taking part in for certain. Nonetheless, they count on to beat the Jets, so they might take it simple on him. In a 17-game season, we will see this quite a bit from numerous gamers across the league. That mentioned, he hasn’t been dominated out, but there’s a chance he’s out. We’ll get into A.J. Brown beneath, but when one or each is out, the highest Titans’ choices at WR embrace Chester Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ihkine, and perhaps Josh Reynolds. You do not need to begin any of those man except you are in deep leagues, as you’d should suppose this would be the Derrick Henry present.

If Jones does play, he is our WR15 in standard and WR16 in PPR leagues.

A.J. Brown harm replace

UPDATE: Brown missed follow on Thursday, yet one more indication he is unlikely to play this week.

Whereas Brown hasn’t been dominated out but, he is trending towards lacking Week 4 due to a pulled hamstring. As with Julio, the Titans shall be cautious with Brown throughout the subsequent two weeks. After taking up the Jets, they will host the Jaguars. The concept is to get by these two simple matchups with out additional injuring both of their star wideouts.

We totally count on Brown to overlook Week 4, so we took him out of our rankings earlier within the week.

Diontae Johnson harm replace

UPDATE: Johnson obtained in a full follow on Thursday, so barring a setback, he must be good to go this week.

Johnson (knee) was out for Week 3, however he took the practice field Wednesday in a limited fashion. Training in any selection is an effective signal for Johnson, and his arrow with regard to his Week 4 availability is pointing in the best path. If he does miss, James Washington sees an expanded position within the offense — much more so if JuJu Smith-Schuster is out (see beneath). Additionally look out for rookie tight finish, Pat Freiermith, to see a rise in utilization.

We’re speculating that Johnson will play, and we rank him because the WR28 in PPR leagues and WR32 in standard leagues. He might end as excessive as a WR1 in PPR leagues primarily based on pure quantity in opposition to a weak Packers’ secondary.

JuJu Smith-Schuster harm replace

UPDATE: Smith-Schuster was restricted in follow on Thursday, placing him on observe to play this week.

Smith-Schuster (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, so we will assume his possibilities of taking part in are bleaker than Johnson’s. He is been unproductive to date this season, rating at WR48 in PPR and WR56 in customary by three weeks. His harm absolutely will not assist his trigger to bounce again.

Nonetheless, with Massive Ben making an attempt simply over 43 passes per recreation, his PPR upside continues to be there. If he does play, we rank him because the WR36 in PPR and WR38 in standard.

Sterling Shepard/Darius Slayton harm replace

UPDATE: Each Shepard and Slayton missed follow once more on Thursday, placing their statuses in critical jeopardy for this week. 

Shepard and Slayton each sustained hamstring accidents in Week 3 and is perhaps game-time selections heading into Week 4 in opposition to the Saints. Neither WR practiced Wednesday, and as we see with A.J. Brown and Christian McCaffrey, hamstring accidents can simply be greater than a one-week restoration for explosive gamers.

If one or each of them miss Week 4, Kadarius Toney, Collin Johnson, and C.J. Board are the subsequent WRs on the depth chart. You’d should suppose the Giants will need to lastly get their first-round rookie Toney concerned, however Johnson out-targeted him final week regardless of Toney taking part in extra snaps. That mentioned, with per week to organize, Toney ought to see elevated utilization. That is additionally an opportunity for Kenny Golladay to lastly present up and set up himself because the No. 1 WR within the offense for Daniel Jones.

In standard leagues, we’ve got Shepard ranked at 31 and Slayton ranked at 67 amongst WRs. For PPR, Shepard is the WR30 and Slayton is available in at WR67. The harm considerations mixed with Saints’ protection harm their possibilities this week.
