WEEK 9 FANTASY: Top Waiver pickups

Cooper Kupp injury update, fantasy outlook for week 9

TO UPDATE: Kupp (ankle) is expected to be sprained daily, according to NFL network Ian Rapoport.

Kupp (ankle) told reporters on Sunday that he needs to see how his ankle reacts over the next few days but feels he has “dodged a bullet”. according to ESPN’s Sarah Bishop. The star wide receiver picked up the ankle injury late in the fourth quarter with the game already in hand for the Niners. Kupp was seen “noticeably limping” in the dressing room on Sunday night.

Kupp should be considered really “questionable” ahead of LA’s Week 9 game in Tampa. If Kupp can’t go, Allen Robinson would run into a solid WR3, while Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek would deserve a flex consideration. Kupp’s failure would also destroy Matthew Stafford’s QB1 value.

Injury update from Mark Andrews, Fantasy outlook for week 9

TO UPDATE: Ravens coach John Harbaugh said on Monday that Andrews’ injury isn’t a “big, big deal,” adding, “I think he’ll be okay.” That doesn’t necessarily give us a good idea of ​​whether Andrews will play in Week 9, but at least he should be back after Baltimore’s Week 10 reunion.

Ravens head coach Jon Harbaugh told reporters after Thursday’s win against the Buccaneers that Andrews’ shoulder injury was not serious. according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. The veteran tight end left the game Thursday in the second quarter on top of not being able to train last week with a knee injury that has plagued him since Week 7.

Considering Baltimore has a Week 10 farewell on the horizon, it would come as no shock to see Andrews having the week off to deal with his various ailments. If he’s out, fantasy owners should snap Ravens’ rookie TE Isaiah Likely from disclaimers. He likely led the Ravens with six receptions (seven goals) for 77 yards and a touchdown against the Buccaneers, and he would also be heavily involved in a tough matchup against the Saints.

Rashod Bateman’s Injury Update, Fantasy Outlook for Week 9

TO UPDATE: Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Bateman (foot) will be out for a few weeks as the injury is more serious than initially thought. according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Head coach Jon Harbaugh said after Thursday night’s game against Tampa Bay that Bateman has worked on his foot injury but it’s not serious, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. The 22-year-old wide receiver has struggled with this injury on and off since Week 4. Bateman missed two games but returned to the field in Week 7 against the Browns before struggling with the injury in a short week in Week 8.

It’s good to hear Bateman is nothing serious but that nagging foot injury will be worth watching throughout the week. If Bateman is out for Week 9, Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson are viable cable-waiver options ahead of a favorable WR matchup in New Orleans. Robinson was Baltimore’s second-best receiver with six receptions (eight goals) for 64 yards Thursday, and Duvernay converted six touches into 64 yards and a TD. Both have WR3 potential.
