Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Latest news on Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott affecting Week 9 start 'em, sit 'em calls

Quarterbacks Kyler Murray and Dak Prescott are dealing with ailments that could affect their Week 9 availabilities, as well as your fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions at QB. Even if both do play, their rushing upside could be limited. Obviously, these two are worth watching in the lead-up to Sunday, and we have the latest injury updates so you can prepare.

WEEK 9 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’em

Kyler Murray injury update

UPDATE: Murray remained sidelined on Thursday, but again, the expectation is he will play. Colt McCoy is the backup in Arizona — for those in two-QB/superflex leagues.

Murray (ankle) was sidelined Wednesday, and don’t be surprised if he misses Thursday’s practice, too. Kliff Kingsbury said he feels comfortable with Murray playing even if he doesn’t practice all week. That said, this feels like a rest situation for the third-year QB, and the panic meter for his Week 9 status is quite low.

Murray is an elite fantasy QB, and San Francisco gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, so we like Murray in the QB3 spot. Even if his rushing is limited a bit, he’s more than capable of putting up monster numbers through the air against a struggling secondary.

WEEK 9 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Dak Prescott injury update

UPDATE: Prescott was upgraded to a full participant for Thursday’s practice and said “it’s safe to say” he’ll play against Denver this week.

Prescott (calf) practiced Wednesday and is expected to be full-go for Thursday’s practice. There is reportedly a much different feel heading into this week vs. last week, and Prescott is expected to make his return to action against the Broncos. Barring any setbacks, feel comfortable with him in your lineup.

WEEK 9 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

We rank him as our QB6 for Week 9. Denver has looked great on defense at times, but strong offenses have been able to have their way against them. Now down Von Miller, the Cowboys should put up big numbers against the Broncos.
