first_imgIngram (shoulder) is “questionable” for Sunday’s game against Arizona, but after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday, it would be a shock if he doesn’t play.MORE WEEK 2 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup builderArizona was one of the worst defenses against RBs last year, but it had a surprisingly decent day against Kerryon Johnson and the Lions in Week 1. Even so, we rank Ingram as a borderline RB1 in Baltimore’s run-heavy attack. WEEK 2 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Joe Mixon playing Week 2?UPDATE 2: Mixon is officially ACTIVE.UPDATE 1: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Mixon “plans” to play, but he’ll test out his ankle in pregame warmups before making a final decision.After missing most of the second half last Sunday and all of practice early this week, Mixon (ankle) returned for a Bengals walk-through practice on Friday and is listed as “questionable” for this week’s game against San Francisco. His status is truly up in the air, but it seems likely he would see fewer snaps than usual even if he did start. Giovani Bernard is a worthwhile RB2 if Mixon is out and a potential PPR FLEX even if he’s active. Given the matchup, we’d roll with Mixon as at least a FLEX in both standard and PPR leagues if he’s out there.WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Le’Veon Bell playing Monday night?Bell got an MRI on his shoulder earlier in the week, but after it came back clean, he told reported he’d be “good to go” for Monday night’s game against Cleveland. He got in a limited practice on Friday and is officially listed as “questionable”.Obviously, Bell’s official status won’t be known until Monday night, but it certainly appears as if he’ll play and be without restrictions. He’s a high-upside RB1, as usual.Week 2 DFS Lineups: FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPMark Ingram injury updateUPDATE: Ingram is officially ACTIVE.
