Injury Late add to the injury report

Officially active today for the Colts: Eric Fisher, Quenton Nelson, Khari Willis, Darius Leonard, Michael Pittman Jr.

Inactive: WR Parris Campbell. (Zak Keefer on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Both Pittman and Campbell (abdomen) were late adds to the injury report this week but while Pittman will be on the field, Campbell will ride the bench. Zach Pascal becomes an intriguing DFS tournament play as a result.

Injury Groin injury

Nerdy Football Analysis: Crowder has missed time with a groin but expected to return to the field today against New England. The Jets looked woeful on offense much of Week 1 and Crowder’s role is unclear, making him an undesirable fantasy option in Week 2.

Injury Gruden talks up Peyton Barber

Interesting from Gruden, when asked about the opportunity for Kenyan Drake with Josh Jacobs out: “We’re excited about the opportunity for Peyton Barber. We really like Peyton Barber.” #Raiders (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Gruden talking up Peyton Barber is interesting and worthy of a chuckle at the same time but most likely Drake will come out of this game with the most fantasy points between the two running backs. Jacobs (toe) was obviously hobbled in the Raiders Week 1 game against the Ravens.

Will Fuller out for Week 2 due to personal matter

September 17, 2021

Timetable for return is unclear

Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller won’t play in Sunday’s game against the Bills and his absence for personal reasons is indefinite. “He’s dealing with a personal issue,” Dolphins coach Brian Flores said Friday. “I’ve had multiple conversations with him the last couple of days. He is definitely dealing with a personal issue. I respect his privacy. I ask that everyone respects his privacy. We support Will. And we’ll take it one day at a time.” (Palm Beach Post)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This sounds like Fuller could miss multiple weeks but we just don’t have a clear timeline as of now. He was getting ready to make his debut after coming off suspension in Week 1. For the time being the Dolphins will press forward with DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle as their top two wideouts.

Ty’Son Williams stuck in expanding committee?

Injury OC wanted to “get other backs involved” in Week 1 loss

Roman said Ty’Son Williams’ usage in second half was more a reflection of wanting to get other RBs involved. Said the days of one back playing whole game are over. (The Athletic – Jeff Zrebiec)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Here’s one problem with Roman’s comment: the Ravens haven’t been a one-back team in years. Here’s another problem: Latavius Murray gave the running game next to nothing in “relief” of Williams in Week 1. A more accurate statement would have been Roman doesn’t trust Williams in pass pro yet. Baltimore doesn’t have the margin for error now it used to, and it shouldn’t take long before it becomes clear Williams needs to carry more of the load. The Ravens need to be more concerned with whether it should be Murray, Le’Veon Bell or Devonta Freeman working in tandem with him.
