Will miss the rest of the regular season due to PED ban

Nerdy Football Analysis: Fuller is done for 2020 and will miss the first game of the 2021 campaign, whether he gets his contract extension from Houston or someone else. Fuller currently sits as the overall WR7 in PPR leagues entering Monday Night Football, so this one stings. With Kenny Stills having been waived recently and Randall Cobb out indefinitely, Brandin Cooks could emerge as a fantasy WR1 down the stretch. Keke Coutee is worth adding in most leagues and Isaiah Coulter should be considered in deeper formats.

Ravens-Steelers game moved to Wednesday night

Ravens to have walk-through practice tonight

The COVID-19 outbreak in Baltimore has led to the Ravens-Steelers game being postponed to Wednesday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Ravens will have a walk-through practice tonight and then they could have another one tomorrow before flying out tomorrow night to Pittsburgh. That’s at least the tentative plan. (ESPN)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Ravens had another positive test today but it was from a player on IR. The league is doing everything they can not to create a Week 18 scenario although their hand may be forced. There is no Thursday game currently scheduled for Week 13.

Injury Tests this morning

#Raiders RB Josh Jacobs, whose day was cut short after 10 touches and a fumble, suffered an ankle sprain, source said. He’s having tests this morning, but sounds like it looked worse than it is. Jacobs hasn’t missed a game this season. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: We’ll have to monitor practice reports for Jacobs to determine his status for Week 13. The Raiders got trucked yesterday in Atlanta (43-6) that included Jacobs posting a 7-27-0, 3-17 line. Devontae Booker would be a prime option should he get the start this week against the Jets.

Daniel Jones expected to miss time

Injury Hamstring injury

The initial belief on the hamstring injury to Daniel Jones is that it’s “pretty bad” and could force him to miss some time, per source. More tests Monday to determine the full extent of the injury. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Colt McCoy filled in after Jones was injured in the third quarter. Jones is barely on the QB2 radar even in two-quarterbacks leagues sitting at QB22 for the season. The Giants have a great matchup against the Seahawks this week but it will be tough to trust any of their pass catchers with McCoy leading the show.

Mark Andrews placed on COVID-19 list

Injury Won’t play in Week 12

Ravens’ Pro Bowl TE Mark Andrews, a Type 1 diabetic, has tested positive for COVID-19, per source. Andrews is out for Tuesday night’s game vs. the Steelers and will become at least the 11th Ravens player to go on the Reserve/COVID list. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Add Andrews to the list of Ravens players that won’t suit up Tuesday night. Nick Boyle would be inline to see more opportunities at tight end. It’s risky for fantasy owners to start anyone from the Ravens-Steelers game, given the game is still a candidate to get moved to Week 18.
