For many people, the fantasy football playoffs have arrived. That makes every game from here on out a must-win affair. The FullTime Fantasy Football Injury Rundown will catch you up on all the fantasy-relevant injury news you’ll need.
Also, be sure to join us in the FullTime Fantasy Discord Channel for injury updates throughout the week. And, check the Week 14 waiver wire and FAAB suggestions for help. Now, let’s check out the Week 14 fantasy football injury rundown.
Kenneth Walker (RB) Seattle Seahawks – The initial fear for Walker was a sprained ankle. However, Pete Carroll ruled that out. Instead, Carroll suggested Walker jammed his ankle. As of now, it is impossible to get a read on the situation. But, the good news is it seems like Walker could play in Week 14 or Week 15, at worst. We’ll keep an eye on the practice reports all week.
Lamar Jackson (QB) Baltimore Ravens – Jackson is listed as “week-to-week” with a knee injury. A PCL injury, which looks like a possibility, would be a minimum of a 2-game absence. We’ll have to monitor the progress throughout the week. But for now, it seems safe that Tyler Huntley will be under center on Sunday. Update: Jackson did suffer a sprained PCL and has a 1-3 week recovery timeline.
Jimmy Garoppolo (QB) San Francisco 49ers – San Francisco lost another starting quarterback for the season after Jimmy Garoppolo’s left foot was stepped on and broken. The Niners will now be down to Brock Purdy, who was the final selection of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Tua Tagovailoa (QB) Miami Dolphins – Tagovailoa sprained his ankle in Week 14 but was able to play through the injury. This suggests Tagovailoa should be fine for Week 14.
Joe Mixon (RB) Cincinnati Bengals – A concussion caused Mixon to miss Week 13 but he reportedly was processing well through the league’s protocol. It would be a big surprise if Mixon is unable to suit up against Cleveland’s atrocious run defense.
Courtland Sutton (WR) Denver Broncos – Sutton is listed as day-to-day with a hamstring injury. However, Denver media seems to think the injury is more severe than first indicated. Plus, with the Broncos faltering and out of playoff contention, there is little reason to rush Sutton back.
Treylon Burks (WR) Tennessee Titans – Another victim of a concussion, Burks was injured on his TD grab and unable to return. The first-rounder will have all week to progress through the NFL’s protocol. If he does, Burks has an intriguing matchup with Jacksonville on Sunday.
Brandin Cooks (WR) Houston Texans – A calf injury kept Cooks sidelined last week. It is unknown has severe the injury is or if Cooks is simply biding his time until he can move on. However, his absence worked out well for Nico Collins per FullTime Fantasy’s Advanced Snap Report from Week 13.
Hayden Hurst (TE) Cincinnati Bengals – Zac Taylor already said Hurst (calf) was doubtful for Week 14. Fantasy managers should be prepared to explore options on the Week 14 waiver wire for an already estimated tight end position.
Juwan Johnson (TE) New Orleans Saints – Johnson sat out Monday night’s loss with an ankle ailment. The fourth-year pro wasn’t particularly close to playing. The Saints have a bye this week, so Johnson will get a full two weeks off to heal up for the fantasy playoffs.
