first_imgThe Week 4 wide receiver and tight end rankings are even shakier than we thought earlier today after publishing injury updates on T.Y. Hilton, Julian Edleman and Vance McDonald, among others. As Thursday practice reports roll in, we’re learning more about?Amari Cooper’s?ankle injury and Mark Andrews’ and Delanie Walker’s ailments. Given the shallowness of the tight end position, that could mean a waiver wire rush and complicated start ’em, sit ’em decisions.We also have updates on Case Keenum, Damien Williams, and Devin Singletary?heading into Week 4. For more of the latest news and fantasy updates,?follow us on Twitter?(@SN_Fantasy).? Will Delanie Walker play Week 4?Walker missed Wednesday’s practice and was absent from the portion of Titans’ practice Thursday open to the media. This could just be a veteran getting time to rest, so Friday’s practice status will be worth watching for Walker ahead of a Sunday game in Atlanta.WEEK 4?PPR RANKINGS: Running back?| Wide receiver |?Tight endWalker is a low-end fantasy starter at tight end this week and most weeks as probably the most consistent pass-catcher in Tennessee.

He was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice. This is a different injury than the plantar fasciitis that Cooper has dealt with in his foot since the preseason.Cooper should be good to go for Week 4 against the Saints. When Cooper matched up with Marshon Lattimore and the Saints in 2018, he caught all eight of his targets for 76 yards. The Cowboys play Sunday night this week, so owners will be hoping Cooper’s status is in no doubt by Sunday morning.WEEK 4 DFS LINEUPS:DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash?| FD GPP |?Y! cash | Y! GPPIs Mark Andrews playing Week 4?Each of the past three weeks, Andrews missed Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury. Ahead of Week 4, Andrews has also missed Thursday’s practice for the first time this season, suggesting his Sunday status in more in doubt than it’s been.Andrews has turned himself into an automatic start at the TE position in the early going. His absence would elevate Hayden Hurst into a more frequent pass-catching role while also getting Nick Boyle more time on the field, albeit usually as a blocker.MORE WEEK 4 DFS: Top values | Stacks |?Lineup Builderlast_img read more
