Week 13 has already been tough for runners, with Alvin Kamara (knee), Dalvin Cook (shoulder), D’Andre Swift (shoulder), Jordan Howard (knee) and Melvin Gordon III (hip) ruled out and a host of keys late running backs in the game were deemed “questionable” (James Robinson, Darrell Henderson, Josh Jacobs, Clyde Edwards-Helaire). By comparison, the early afternoon RBs, Boston Scott and David Johnson, aren’t that important, but given the sorry state of many fantastic start ’em, sit’ em decisions, every high-volume RB has potential value. . As such, we know there are homeowners in need of the latest Scott and Johnson injury updates, which we will provide below.

WEEK 13 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Get started, feel them

Will Boston Scott play Week 13?

Scott missed practice all week due to non-COVID illness. At this point, it’s hard to speculate on his availability for Sunday’s game against the Jets, but if he’s active, he should start in this highly favorable matchup.

The Jets allow the RBs the most fantasy points per game, so if Scott is out, Kenneth Gainwell should see enough touches to make a flexible spot worthwhile. Miles Sanders would be on the edge of RB1 either way, and if Scott does play, he would be a top-tier RB2.

Is David Johnson playing Week 13?

Johnson (thigh, illness) was unable to practice this week, although it is unclear if it was more due to illness or injury to the thigh. If illness was more responsible for his inactivity during the week, Johnson still has a decent chance of facing the Colts.

At this point, it’s hard to speculate whether Johnson will play, but given the showdown, Fantasy owners had better not count on him. Regardless, Rex Burkhead splits time fairly evenly with Johnson, so if Johnson is out, Burkhead is a solid, volume-based flex in standard and PPR leagues. If Johnson is active, it will be difficult to start any of the Texans’ backs.
