Fantasy Football Injury Report

We are down to the NFL’s version of the final four. FullTime Fantasy playoff leagues are roaring and it’s still not too late to join. Before the AFC and NFC conference championships, our Fantasy Football Injury Report keeps you updated on all the key injuries for the Ravens, Chiefs, 49ers, and Lions.

Deebo Samuel (WR) San Francisco 49ers – Samuel re-injured his shoulder early on Sunday and did not return. Kyle Shanahan indicated that his star wideout is a “50/50” proposition this week, at best. Even if he plays, there is a chance that Samuel could see a reduced role or be utilized as a decoy. We will have to keep an eye on his practice participation. Subsequently, we have lowered Samuel’s NFC Championship projections.

Mark Andrews (TE) Baltimore Ravens – There is a solid chance that Andrews will return this week after missing nine weeks with an ankle injury. Should he be active, Andrews is an automatic elite play.

Kalif Raymond (WR) Detroit Lions – Raymond missed the divisional round with a knee injury. Dan Campbell told the media that Raymond is improving and we should have a better idea about his availability by Saturday.

Brock Wright (TE) Detroit Lions – Wright is listed as doubtful with a forearm injury. Subsequently, the Lions signed veteran free agent Zach Ertz to their practice squad. There is a good chance that Ertz will be active this week. 

Kadarius Toney (WR) Kansas City Chiefs – Hip and ankle injuries kept Toney sidelined on Sunday. He has not played since Week 15. Even if he returns, Toney’s erratic play and usage make him a risky proposition in any format. Therefore, we’re fading.

Tylan Wallace (WR) Baltimore Ravens – Wallace missed the divisional round with a knee injury. Subsequently, Devin Duvernay filled in as Baltimore’s return specialist.

Joe Thuney (OG) Kansas City Chiefs – A strained pectoral knocked Thuney out of the AFC divisional round. However, the injury is not deemed serious. That puts Thuney in a good position to suit up on Sunday.

Frank Ragnow (Center) Detroit Lions – Another key offensive lineman, Ragnow is dealing with a sprained knee but was able to return against the Bucs. The All-Pro is expected to be fine for this week’s trip to San Francisco.

Jonah Jackson (LG) Detroit Lions– Unfortunately, the Lions won’t have left guard Jonah Jackson in that game. Jackson had surgery for a slight meniscus tear. Jackson will miss a minimum of two weeks in his recovery. If the Lions win this week, Jackson could return in time to play in the Super Bowl.

Josh Allen (QB) Buffalo Bills – After Buffalo’s season-ending defeat, Allen indicated that he had a worsening shoulder injury as the season progressed. However, the current plan is to rest and rehab and avoid surgery. That’s good news for fantasy football’s QB1.
