Week 13 has already been robust on RBs, with Alvin Kamara (knee), Dalvin Cook dinner (shoulder), D’Andre Swift (shoulder), Jordan Howard (knee), and Melvin Gordon III (hip) dominated out and a bunch of key late-game working backs deemed “questionable” (James Robinson, Darrell Henderson, Josh Jacobs, Clyde Edwards-Helaire). By comparability, early-afternoon RBs Boston Scott and David Johnson aren’t that necessary, however given the sorry state of many fantasy begin ’em, sit ’em selections, each high-volume RB has potential worth. As such, we all know there are house owners on the market who want the most recent harm updates on Scott and Johnson, which we’ll present beneath.

Is Boston Scott taking part in Week 13?
Scott missed practice all week due to a non-COVID sickness. At this level, it is robust to invest on his availability for Sunday’s recreation in opposition to the Jets, but when he is lively, he is a must-start on this extremely favorable matchup.
The Jets enable essentially the most fantasy factors per recreation to RBs, so if Scott is out, Kenneth Gainwell ought to see sufficient touches to be value a flex spot. Miles Sanders can be a borderline RB1 both means, and if Scott performs, he’d be a high-end RB2.
Is David Johnson taking part in Week 13?
Johnson (thigh, sickness) was unable to practice this week, although it is unclear if that was due extra to the sickness or the thigh harm. If the sickness was extra accountable for his inactivity throughout the week, then Johnson nonetheless has a good probability to swimsuit up in opposition to the Colts.
At this level, it is robust to invest whether or not Johnson play, however given the matchup, fantasy house owners are higher off not relying on him. Rex Burkhead splits time pretty equally with Johnson anyway, so if Johnson is out, Burkhead is a stable volume-based flex in each normal and PPR leagues. If Johnson is lively, it is going to be robust to begin both Texans’ again.
