Nerdy Football Analysis: With both MVS and Allison active it’s difficult to trust Allen Lazard as a punt play in Week 7. Both active Packers wideouts are risky Flex plays against the Raiders.

InjuryListed as questionable

Cardinals’ RB David Johnson, listed as questionable for today’s game against the Giants due to an ankle injury, is expected to play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Head coach Kliff Kingsbury made waves on Friday when he said that if the game were today, Johnson wouldn’t play, but it sounds like it’s all systems go for DJ in a prime matchup against the Giants. Chase Edmonds is a low-end flex option.

InjuryCould be active against the Raiders

#Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) was upgraded to questionable from doubtful vs Raiders. Two weeks ago, CB Kevin King had the same thing happen before Dallas, and he ended up playing. Doesn’t mean Allison will play, but looking hopeful. (Ryan Wood on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: It’s rare for a player to be upgraded from Doubtful on a Saturday so this gives Allison a chance to play on Sunday. Allen Lazard would become a fantasy afterthought if both Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are able to avoid the inactive list.

InjuryOptimism he will be available Sunday

Sean McVay says Todd Gurley was limited in Friday’s practice, but that he’s optimistic he will be available Sunday. Backup RB Malcolm Brown is doubtful, and McVay says if he’s unable to go that Darrell Henderson will assume the role. (ESPN)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Sounds like Gurley is going to give it a go against the Falcons which makes him a solid RB2 play in Week 7. Darrell Henderson can be Flex option as he takes over the change of pace role for Brown. The Falcons have given up 7 TDs to running backs through six weeks.

InjuryExpects to play Sunday night

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) seems encouraged following his first practice of week. He said that he expects to play Sunday evening in big divisional game vs. Eagles. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Copper injured his quad early in Week 6 and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday of this week. This is the first encouraging sign for Cooper’s health this week so another positive report prior to lineup lock on Sunday would be ideal.
