George Kittle harm replace

Kittle was out and in of observe final week, and he didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday this week with a calf harm. He was considerably at risk of lacking final week’s sport, however this week appears like a extra severe risk, particularly with a bye developing in Week 6. San Francisco takes on Arizona this Sunday, so the 49ers will want all of the offensive assist they will get. If Kittle does play, we have now to assume Trey Lance would pepper him with targets.

For now, we place him at TE4 in standard and PPR leagues. If he is out Ross Dwelley, who caught a landing in Week 4, turns into a good deep-league streamer at tight finish.

Curtis Samuel harm replace

Samuel (groin) missed the primary three weeks of the season earlier than returning in Week 4 in a restricted position. It seems he is nonetheless not over his ailment, as he missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practice this week. He appears to be on the improper aspect of “questionable,” however we’ll monitor this forward of Sunday’s sport. We have already seen Terry McLaurin be the one different constant Washington WR when Samuel is out, and now with Logan Thomas (hamstring) harm, it appears like J.D. McKissic and Ricky Seals-Jones are first in line to take extra targets. That mentioned, the one must-start for Washington are most likely McLaurin and Antonio Gibson, with McKissic being a flex consideration, and Seal-Jones being a deep-league streaming choice.

If Samuel does play towards the Saints this week, we view him as a low-end flex at WR45 in PPR and WR48 in standard leagues.

Sterling Shepard harm replace

Shepard (hamstring) was out for Week 4 and he appears to be heading towards carrying a “questionable” or “out” tag into Week 5 (@ Dallas). He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, so issues aren’t trying nice. In his absence, Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney had their greatest performances of the 12 months, and it is exhausting to think about they will put Toney again on the bench for the remainder of the season. That mentioned, Shepard will nonetheless get run, however Darius Slayton will most likely be the odd man out when he returns from a hamstring harm.
