2018 FANTASY BASEBALL EARLY HEALTH WATCH FOR SUNDAY'S GAMES

While the ACTIVE/INACTIVE lists won't be released for the 1:00 games until around 11:30 ET, we already are getting word on the following key health-related news:

-Washington Redskisns wideout Jamison Crowder won't be active due to a bum ankle.  It is no big loss since Crowder has been tremendously disappointing this season as he failed to come through as a potential PPR guy with Alex Smith at QB.

-Houston Texans QB DeShaun Watson will be a go.  Watson was never in any jeopardy of missing the game with a chest injury and he should be started with confidence vers Buffalo. 

-Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard will play versus the Atlanta Falcons despite dealing with a knee injury but the return of Jameis Winston at QB who loves to target Cameron Brate at the position is bad news for his fantasy football outlook.

-Once again Redskins running back Chris Thompson can't stay healthy as he will sit Sunday with both a rib and knee injury.  Thompson is a big loss in PPR given his pass receiving chops and he will be replaced by Kapri Bibbs who only has moderate appeal as a deep-league FLEX option.

-New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell will start despite being limited during the week with an ankle injury.  This is a bummer for those who picked up Bilal Powell hoping for a swell workload against a brutal Indianapolis Colts defense. 

-Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will be active Sunday but will be on an annoying snap count of between 20-25 which barely makes him worth starting.  This hamstring thing is becoming a major season-long issue that is turning Cook into a sizable bust.

-Matt Breida will be a game-time decision for the San Francisco 49ers with an ankle injury but given the Monday night start, he should be a no-go for all his owners.

-Greg Olsen will return to the Carolina Panthers today which is a big development for those who snagged him off the waiver wire (there were a decent amount who did) but the re-injury risk is very high.  A true boom-or-bust guy in every start the remainder of the season.
