NFL Injury Report: Julian Edelman, Will Fuller, Marquise Brown, Dante Pettis for Week 14

NFL Injury Report: Julian Edelman

NFL Injury Report: Julian Edelman

For Week 14, many fantasy-relevant wide receivers are on the injury report. For fantasy owners in the playoffs, some of these may come down to game-time decisions, so be careful when setting lineups. Adam Thielen is doubtful, so fantasy owners should plan to be without him (again). Other wide receivers already ruled out include A.J. Green, JuJu Smith-Schuster, T.Y. Hilton, Hunter Renfrow, and Adam Humphries. For the others, be sure to check the inactive report before game time.

Julian Edelman (shoulder), WR, New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:25 p.m.

It wouldn't be a week without Edelman on the injury report. Since Week 5, he has had at least five receptions and at least 50 total yards. He's scored five touchdowns on the season and has three games with more than 100 yards. The Week 14 matchup with Kansas City should be a high-scoring one and Tom Brady should be throwing a lot. Edelman is a WR1 in PPR formats.

Will Fuller (hamstring), WR, Houston Texans vs. Denver Broncos, 1 p.m.

Fuller missed time earlier in the season due to a hamstring issue and apparently re-aggravated it either in Week 13 or in practice this week. Either way, he's questionable and may be a game-time decision. When he's been healthy, he has been a great weapon for Deshaun Watson. It doesn't seem like he'll be healthy in Week 14 though. He should be kept on fantasy benches even if active.

Marquise Brown (ankle), WR, Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m.

Brown did show up on the injury report on Thursday, but the ankle injury doesn't appear to be something that will keep him out of Week 14. Brown and the Ravens do have a tough matchup against the Bills. With Lamar Jackson using his legs when things get tough rather than his arm, it's going to be hard to trust Brown as anything more than a WR4.

Dante Pettis (knee), WR, San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints, 1 p.m.

Marquise Goodwin also is questionable with a knee injury, but he shouldn't be in lineups for the fantasy playoffs. Pettis also should be on fantasy benches. He missed Week 13 and only got in limited practices this week. He hasn't actually caught a ball in a game since Week 9 (and he's been active in all but last week). Both 49ers wide receivers are close to being off the fantasy radar entirely.

Mohamed Sanu (ankle), WR, New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:25 p.m.

Sanu was questionable heading into Week 13, and he played through his ankle injury. He only had five targets in that game, but he caught three for 40 yards. With another week to heal, he should put forward a better performance in Week 14. This seems to be a good week for Tom Brady to be throwing the ball and Sanu will likely be the target for some of those passes. He's a WR4.

Nelson Agholor (knee), WB, Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants, 8:15 p.m. (Mon.)

Agholor didn't practice all week (including Saturday), but the Eagles are calling him a game-time decision. It seems that Agholor will be out for this game, so fantasy owners should plan accordingly. There really isn't a replacement for him, as J.J. Arcega-Whiteside hasn't had more than two receptions all year.
