Monday Night Football Week 14
Today’s Monday Night Football slate features to matchups including the Titans @ Dolphins and Packers @ Giants. While the first game has more offensive potential, the ladder should be a much closer matchup. Make sure to pay close detail to the captioned injuries and set your fantasy lineups accordingly! For the official injury report, click here.
Titans @ Dolphins Injury Report
Kristian Fulton: A hamstring injury will rule out Tennessee’s No. 2 outside cornerback. It’s about the worst time possible to have an injury to an outside cornerback. With Fulton injured, it’ll be Tre Avery covering Jaylen Waddle. Avery has not been good when in the lineup, as he’s only graded above 62.8 in coverage once this year. Waddle has been heating up recently, with two 100-yard performances in the last five weeks. That streak should turn into three over the last six after tonight.
Jeffrey Simmons: The Titans will be without their best defensive player while he recovers from a knee injury. Simmons has been great this year and is the biggest reason for their above-average run defense. Backup TK McLendon Jr. has played less than 50 snaps all year and has been alright. Expect the Titans’ rush defense to be much more vulnerable today. Look for Mostert and Achane to combine for around 150 yards rushing.
Robert Hunt: Miami will be missing their left guard this week as he deals with a hamstring injury. Hunt has been one of the most consistent guards in the NFL, both in pass and run blocking. He’s been a big reason why Miami’s run game has been so spectacular this year. Backup Liam Eichenberg has played very well in his absence, especially last week. Against a Titans’ defensive line without Jeffrey Simmons, Liam Eichenberg should continue to fill in well for Hunt.
Packers @ Giants Injury Report
Green Bay Packers
Christian Watson: A hamstring injury will hold out Green Bay’s No. 1 receiver. Watson had been on a hot streak recently and losing him for this week is unfortunate. Even with Watson out, Jordan Love should be able to find a way to win with the weapons he has. Expect increased checkdowns to Aaron Jones, who’s finally returning this week. Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed and Dontayvion Wicks should continue to see an increased target rate as well.
Quay Walker: A shoulder injury has Green Bay’s No. 2 middle linebacker listed as doubtful. Walker has developed well from his last year. He’s become one of the game’s young best tacklers. Backup Eric Wilson will take his spot if he can’t suit up tonight. Wilson is a solid backup and isn’t a ton worse than Walker. Still, expect worse tackling attempts, especially on Saquon Barkley.
Jaire Alexander: Green Bay will also be without their best cornerback as he also recovers from a shoulder injury. With Stokes also hurt, Green Bay’s corner depth is questionable at least. Starting corners Carrington Valentine and Corey Ballentine have both struggled in coverage this year. Thankfully, they’re facing the worst receiving corps in the league. Honestly, anything can happen between these two position groups tonight.
New York Giants
Evan Neal: An ankle injury will continue to keep New York’s starting right tackle sidelined. Backup Tyre Phillips will once again return to the starting lineup. Phillips has been average at best this year. He’ll be facing a near top-10 pass rush tonight and should struggle whether it’s against Preston Smith or Rashan Gary. I’d expect Phillips to give up 5-6 pressures tonight.
