Fantasy Football Week 2 Injury Updates: Chris Ivory, T.Y. Hilton, Randall Cobb, Justin Forsett

T.Y. Hilton

T.Y. Hilton

While most of the questionable players were in the 1 p.m. ET games this week (fantasy owners breathe a sigh of relief), there are still several noteworthy players on the injury reports for the later games. Take a look at the early game injury report for RBs and WRs/TEs and as always, monitor the actives and inactives when they are posted. In the meantime, here are the players to be concerned with for fantasy purposes for the later games, including two key ones for Monday night.

Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (Mon.)

Questionable – Groin

After being limited in Thursday's practice, it was revealed that Ivory pulled his groin, although the team said it was minor. He did put in a limited practice on Friday, and should be on track to play on Monday night. Because fantasy owners will have to make a decision before knowing his status, this will be tough. Bilal Powell could be added as a handcuff, but it does appear that Ivory will play. And if he does, you may want to strongly consider taking your chances with this Jet.

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts vs. New York Jets (Mon.)

Questionable – Knee

Hilton bruised his knee in the Colts’ Week 1 loss in Buffalo and fantasy owners rushed to the waiver wire to pick up Donte Moncrief. The knee injury was never serious, and just a matter of managing the pain and discomfort. With treatments all week, Hilton was able to get in a limited practice on Saturday. He will likely be a game-time decision and fantasy owners should play it safe and not count on having Hilton this week.

Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks

Probable –  Shoulder

Cobb practiced on a limited basis all week, but he didn't suffer a setback from his preseason shoulder injury in last week's game either, so it was not a question that he would play in Week 2. He's a WR1 even with a matchup with Richard Sherman.

Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB, Baltimore Ravens at Oakland Raiders

Probable – Shoulder, Probable – Knee

Forsett was disappointing in Week 1, and he didn't have Taliaferro active on the roster behind him. However, the matchup against the Raiders is better than the one against Denver. Both running backs should play, given the probable status and the full practices on Friday. However, Forsett is still a RB1 and Taliaferro isn't on the fantasy radar except as a handcuff to Forsett.

Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Miami Dolphins

Probable – Hamstring

With Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Rashad Greene ahead of Lee on the Jaguars’ WR depth chart, and Blake Bortles as the quarterback, Lee doesn’t have fantasy value at this point. However, he did not play in Week 1 and will likely play in Week 2.
