Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Doug Martin, Isaiah Crowell impacting Week 14 RB rankings

first_imgWeek 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs Doug Martin playing Week 14?UPDATE 2: Martin is officially ACTIVE.UPDATE: NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Martin is expected to play today.After reportedly practicing in full early in the week, Martin still wound up as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh. It seems likely that Martin will play, and if he does, he’s still a low-end RB2. If he’s out, C.J. Anderson and Jalen Richard would head up a committee that would leave both out of lineups in standard leagues. Richard would still have FLEX value in PPR leagues.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end Four key RBs (Melvin Gordon, James Conner, Kerryon Johnson, Matt Breida) have already been ruled “out” this week, which leaves only two potential starting running backs (Doug Martin, Isaiah Crowell) on the Week 14 active/inactive bubble. Still, every player — and every start ’em, sit ’em decision — matters in the fantasy playoffs, so you can bet more than a few fantasy football owners will be looking for the latest injury updates on these ball carriers.We’ll have official statuses for both backs once they’re released, so check back during the day.

Follow us on Twitter (@SN_Fantasy) for more updates and advice. Is Isaiah Crowell playing in Week 14?UPDATE: Crowell is officially ACTIVE.A toe injury kept Crowell out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and he wound up being listed as “questionable” ahead of Sunday’s game against Buffalo. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported late Saturday night that Crowell is expected to play.Crowell is coming off a 21-carry, 98-yard game in Tennessee, so he would still be in the low-end RB2 range if he’s active in this favorable matchup. If he is a surprise scratch, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon would split time, with McGuire functioning as a FLEX and Cannon not having much value outside of low-end PPR FLEX upside.last_img read more
