Any thoughts if Hilton/Mack will play? Trying to decide if I need to add a guy like Pettis to try to cover the late Questionables.

Just want to say I'm worn out from following injuries this season on my team. It's taking a ton of the fun out of Fantasy. It seems like it was easier long ago to track a player's availability during the week and make the adjustments as they went through the reports from day to day. Now it seems like there is no news until Wednesday and it's a cryptic - practice/didn't practice. And little more information on Friday that corresponds with whether a player is going to play. Come Sunday its a gambling game of watching the ticker and still a lot of cryptic news on if a player will be in lineup. They just had Terry McLaurin on NFL Gameday listed as "Good Chance" - wth? Good to see they finally came up with a more definitive answer.

Something was different in the past, but not sure what. Every league I played in before ~2000 had phoned-in lineups due the midnight BEFORE the first game of the week. This was usually Saturdays at midnight, but could be Wednesday or Friday depending on Thanksgiving games, Saturday NFL games in December, etc.

Anyway, I recall that these early lineup decisions were rarely a problem. I do remember that back then, it seemed that a player designated as Questionable pretty much always played, a Doubtful pretty much always sat. Game-time decisions seemed really rare, if not non-existent.

Gallman Concussed.. out for the game

As a Barkley owner this is another kick in the nuts.

This is what sucks the most in fantasy football when you have a guy go down in the 1st series there is nothing you can do about it. Got a point. Too bad there in nothing in place to address this type of thing.

I assume that it is at least partially related to the removal of the probable designation. Now questionable probably means anywhere from like 25-80%

Exactly.  Probable was presumably like, I don’t know, 65-90?

i assume doubtful is like 25 or less.

Yea, the difference is that players that were probable are now questionable. I think questionable was ~ 50% chance at playing and probable was 90%, so now you are left guessing which is which.

you could try positional scoring but that takes out some of the fun and i don't know how you deal with the wides and tights but I know leagues used to do team quarterback and I believe team running back

Helmet to helmet on a good scramble and pass completion. He was out cold before his head hit the ground hard.

Rudolph walking off the field. He was knocked out cold by the helmet to helmet. The hit looked accidental in real time.

It's very frustrating. In my main league, I switched the scoring to Best Ball scoring. Problem solved (well as best as possible. At least it's not an almost automatic loss like in regular line-ups).  Everyone in my league loved the change.

Rudolph left the stadium for further evaluation at a local hospital. I'm guessing for a precautionary CT or MRI brain scan.

Couldn't agree more...been playing fantasy football for 25 yrs (Dynasty for 17 yrs)....back then it wasn't widespread, I used to love to hear the chime when CBS would notify you they were going to scroll updates on the bottom of the game I was watching.  Don't get me wrong, love the advancements (real-time scoring, plethora of information, analysis who specialize in FF) but I agree that rarely you were surprised by a player sitting when he was questionable or vice-versa.  

BTW,  I don't care to go back to the stone age pre-internet but it wasn't all bad either.

Alvin Kamara - Ankle - may not play

David Johnson - Back - Not practicing Thursday

David Johnson (back) remained sidelined Thursday.

Johnson was running with the rehab group. It's too early to say Johnson has no shot at suiting up against the Falcons, but it is not looking good. Johnson is the kind of player who could suit up after three DNPs, but that's rare. Sophomore Chase Edmonds will be waiting in the wings as a plug-and-play RB1 if Johnson doesn't go.

RB David Johnson, S Charles Washington working on side. Fitz vet day. Didn't see DT Corey Peters, LB Terrell Suggs, LB Ezekiel Turner, LB Dennis Gardeck.

Todd Gurley - Bruised thigh

From NFL Now: #Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) did not practice yesterday, and his status is up in the air for Sunday.
