Fantastic Impact: Designating Dobbins as questionable is a good sign after many doubts were cast about his status before Week 1. one might expect. , but with the Ravens’ ability to run the ball at will and the likelihood of a positive game scenario, if Dobbins is healthy, expect positive results. However, if he runs out of time, the role will likely be split between RB Mike Davis and newcomer Kenyan Drake.

Fantastic impact: Despite the designation, Thomas trained on Friday and will likely play on Sunday, according to neworleans.football’s Nick Underhill. Thomas had limited time with QB Jameis Winston last season, the Saints improved at WR with Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry and Thomas can pull the assignment from CB AJ Terrell, so proceed with caution in Week 1. However , if he returns to form from a few seasons ago, he will be a steal at his middling draft position.

Fantastic Impact: London snaps have been limited throughout pre-season signaling he will be a starter for the Falcons in 2022. His status has improved and the team will make a firm call tomorrow based on his knee, but s he plays, expect volume in a relatively deficient group of Atlanta WRs.

Allen Lazard (ankle) doubtful for Week 1 vs. Vikings

Fantastic Impact: That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Lazard hasn’t been able to practice all week. The wide should be Aaron Rodgers’ No. 1 target heading into the season, but now they will have to pivot. Expect rookies Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson (if he takes the field) as well as Sammy Watkins to see an increase in targets in Lazard’s absence. However, running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will likely be the focal points of Green Bay’s attack.
