Read ESPN’s fantasy football Daily notes each weekday to stay on top of the news you need to know and get a head start on fantasy football content coming today and tomorrow to ESPN.com and the ESPN Fantasy app.

News: ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Buffalo is “still evaluating” Josh Allenelbow injury.

What it means in fantasy: Allen is being evaluated for a right elbow injury involving the ulnar collateral ligament and associated nerves. The Laws hope to have more information on Tuesday. On Buffalo’s final drive against the Jets on Sunday, Allen reached for his elbow after his forearm was bent back by the sack. Since it’s on his throwing arm, this could be a major concern as Buffalo prepares for the matchup against the Vikings. Fantasy managers would be wise to pick up another quarterback in case Allen misses time. Jimmy Garoppolo and Justin Fields are excellent alternatives.


News: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott he didn’t practice on Monday.

What it means in fantasy: Elliott missed the Cowboys’ Week 8 win over the Bears and a light practice in Week 10 after a bye in Week 9. Wednesday will be Dallas’ first full practice of the week. Elliott told Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter Clarence Hill that his knee is better than it was last week, but he doesn’t know when he will practice. When Elliott returns, he plans to wear braces. During a radio interview on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he expects Elliott to play against the Packers in Week 10. If Elliott misses Week 10, Tony Pollard can fill the void after totaling 147 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries against the Bears in Week 8.


News: NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Packers WR Romeo Doubs was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, while ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that tests came back negative for RB Aaron Jones‘ injured ankle.

What it means in fantasy: It will take four to six weeks for two-legged friends to recover. He leads all Packers receivers with 31 catches this season while other Green Bay receivers have missed time with injuries. On Sunday against the Lions, Christian Watson left the game after being evaluated for a concussion. Allen Lazard could see 10 or more targets against Cowboys in Week 10; he caught four of 10 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Sammy Watkins should also be considered in deeper formats.

Things are looking up for Jones, but his status at practice this week will determine whether he plays against the Cowboys on Sunday. Jones is more of a top RB2 against a stout Dallas defense. if he can’t go, AJ Dillon would assume the same potential of RB2.


News: Lions coach Dan Campbell told reporters that RB D’Andre Swift he didn’t have any layups and “Hopefully we can give him a little bit more this week.”

What it means in fantasy: Swift totaled 175 yards on 18 touches against the Eagles in Week 1. Since then, he has amassed just 216 yards on 32 touches. Swift played just 10 snaps against the Packers as he recovers from shoulder and ankle injuries. A week earlier against the Dolphins, he played 33 games. Although Swift is a flexible, high-risk option, Jamaal Williamswho has amassed 37 touches and 157 yards over the past two games, is a strong RB2.


News: 49ers announced running back RB Elijah Mitchell has been designated to return from injured reserve, opening practice windows.

What it means in fantasy: The 49ers have 21 days to activate Mitchell or place him on season-ending injured reserve. He has been out with a sprained MCL since week one. While then a starter, Mitchell would return as a backup in the Christian McCaffreywho averaged 21.9 touches per game since 2018. His role in the 49ers backfield will be minimal.


News: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson became the second player ever to record 100 assists and 20 rebounds before turning 26.

What it means in fantasy: Jackson was without Mark Andrews and Expenditure Bateman and threw completions to 10 different players. Since Week 4, Jackson has averaged just 15.6 fantasy points per game. But Jackson and the Ravens will be able to recalibrate during the Week 10 bye. Baltimore has one of the most favorable schedules for the rest of the season, according to Mike Clay’s strength of schedule. It’s the perfect time to trade Jackson.


News: Browns TE David Njoku plans to play in Week 10.

What it means in fantasy: Njoku missed Week 8 with a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 7, but he appears to have benefited from the Browns’ No. 9 bye. If active, Njoku can be seen as a cheap TE1 against the Dolphins in a high-scoring game. Cole Serf finished with 22.0 fantasy points in Week 9. In Weeks 3 through 7, he averaged 7.2 targets and 14.2 fantasy points per game.


News: Panthers named QB PJ Walker as a starter against the Falcons.

What it means in fantasy: Walker was benched Sunday at halftime against the Bengals after completing just three of 10 passes for nine yards and two interceptions. In Week 8, he had a career-high 317 passing yards against the Falcons. Sam Darnold was activated Monday, but Walker will get at least one more start against the Falcons. In fantasy football, the Panthers quarterback situation should be avoided. There are only a few of them Carolina Panthers fantasy managers should feel comfortable inserting into lineups, including DJ Moore, Terrace Marshall Jr. and D’Onta Foreman.


Fantasy Reads

It reads: Will the Titans’ wide receivers ever make an impact?

What it means in fantasy: Malik Willis completed just five of 16 passes for 80 yards Sunday night against the Chiefs. There were no receptions by Titans receivers. Derrick Henry he is averaging a whopping 24.6 touches per game this season. Turron Davenport wrote: “The defense is playing one-on-one coverage on the outside without any safety help over the top, and the Titans aren’t taking advantage of that.” Tennessee should be used Treylon Burks in the passing game when returning from a toe injury. He is listed in only 22.5% of ESPN leagues.

It reads: Is the Bills defense the main concern now?

What it means in fantasy: Alaina Getzenberg believes so, and I agree with her. “The Bills were missing a key defensive player — linebacker Matt Milan and security Jordan Poyer — but that’s no excuse for how the run defense struggled for the second straight game. Even when it was clear the Jets would run the football on the final drive of the fourth quarter, they continued to post significant gains. The Bills have allowed their season-high two rushing yards in the last two games (208 yards vs. Packers; 175 vs. Jets),” Getzenberg said. and Patriots. These are matchups to look forward to for fantasy managers who have Dalvin Cook, Nick ChubbJamaal Williams or Rhamondre Stevenson in their teams.
