Davante Adams Good To Go

Monday, September 18, 6:15 PM

Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said that wide receiver Davante Adams (head) is "good" after taking a huge hit in the Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Adams left the game and was being evaluated for a concussion in the 38-10 blowout loss on the road, but he apparently passed the concussion protocol and should be able to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Still, fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if the 30-year-old misses some practice time this week. The six-time Pro Bowler caught six of eight targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss and now has 12 receptions for 150 yards and one TD through the first two games in 2023. Adams is a must-start WR1 as long as he's healthy.

Diontae Johnson Placed On Injured Reserve

Monday, September 18, 6:50 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers placed wide receiver Diontae Johnson (hamstring) and running back Anthony McFarland Jr. (knee) on Injured Reserve on Monday and promoted running back Qadree Ollison from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster in a corresponding move. Johnson will now have to miss four games after injuring his hamstring in the Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Pittsburgh also has a bye in Week 6, so the 27-year-old could return in Week 7 in a matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Fantasy managers should attempt to stash Johnson for now, as the 27-year-old should be heavily involved in the passing game once he's healthy again. In the meantime, George Pickens, Allen Robinson II and Calvin Austin III will be the team's three starting wideouts. Tight end Pat Freiermuth should also see an uptick in targets.
