Wingers Darrell Henderson, Alvin Kamara, Jordan Howard and Mark Ingram are all in cloudy status ahead of the weekend, and Week 13’s fictional RB rankings will be impacted by their availability. Naturally, other RBs will rise and become viable fantasy options, so it’s important to keep an eye on the latest updates as they roll out.

WEEK 13: Get Top Free
Darrell Henderson Injury Update
Henderson (quad) will need to be monitored this week, but Looks like he’s seriously injured in the loss to the packer. We’ve seen some lads who miss time get injured four times, so it’s likely he’ll miss the Week 13 game against Jags. If that’s the case, Sony Michel will take up a role. totally, but it’s worth noting that Jacksonville is pretty good against fantasy RBs, so this should be seen as a neutral matchup.
Alvin Kamara . injury update
Kamara (knee) limited to Monday practice session, and it will be a rapidly evolving “story” as the Saints take on the Cowboys on Thursday night. We won’t speculate, but the weekend’s practice reports should help us know his condition. He doesn’t have to deal with anything too big as far as we know, so perhaps a three-game absence is enough for him to return.
Dallas is the top unit against fantasy RBs, so Kamara ranks as RB10 in PPR and RB11 in standard tournaments. Of course, his upside is higher, but his productivity can be hampered by his knees, and his stats with Taysom Hill at last year’s QB weren’t all that impressive. If he remains absent, Mark Ingram or Tony Jones Jr will be the leading RBs, but they will have a tough road to match success.
Jordan Howard injury update
There hasn’t been much news on Howard’s (knee) condition yet, but he could in fact be back this week as the Eagles have chosen not to include him in IR. They’ll be saying goodbye to Week 14, though, so it makes sense to give him a Week 13 break.
We don’t have Howard in the standings at the moment, but if he does, it’ll stand up to the worst defense against fictional RBs (Jets), so he’ll have real appeal. /RB2, especially in standard tournaments.
Mark Ingram injury update
Ingram (knee) fully participated in Monday’s practice session, so it’s a positive sign for his readiness on Thursday against the Cowboys. However, as we discussed with Kamara, Dallas has a top attacking defence, and Ingram depends on fitness at this point in his career. If Kamara is absent, you may have to start Ingram, but his fantasy doesn’t look good.
If we both play, Ingram is ours RB30 in standard and RB36 in PPR . tournaments. If Kamara didn’t play but Ingram did, he would be considered a low level RB2. If Ingram and Kamara are both inactive, Tony Jones will likely be ranked outside of the RB2 range.
