Impact: Will play despite getting banged up during this week’s practices.

Melvin Gordon III, RB, DEN: Hip — Active
Impact: He’ll try to play. Mike Boone is on the COVID-19 list.

D’Andre Swift, RB, DET: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Expect the Lions to roll with the tandem of Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike, as Jamaal Williams (COVID-19) is also out.

T.J. Hockenson, TE, DET: Hand — Inactive
Impact: Brock Wright will start in his place. Brock Wright is no T.J. Hockenson.

Riley Patterson, K, DET: Illness — Active
Impact: The kicker is one of many Lions who are battling a non-COVID bug.

Impact: While he may be in the lineup for the Giants, it’s probably best not to use him in fantasy.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, SF: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Jeff Wilson Jr. and JaMycal Hasty are pretty much all who are left to handle committee work.

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF: Groin — Active
Impact: Practiced late in the week, so chances were always good he’d be able to suit up.

Randall Cobb, WR, GB: Groin — OUT/IR
Impact: Surgery may have ended Cobb’s 2021. Amari Rodgers could become a dart-throw flex gamble.

Tevin Coleman, RB, NYJ: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Ty Johnson and Austin Walter likely to share backfield duties.

Impact: Vyncint Smith was promoted from practice squad as Jeff Smith went on the COVID-19 list.
