Fantasy Football Injury Reports For NFL RBs: Week 17 Updates for Austin Ekeler, Christian McCaffrey, Rhamondre Stevenson, James Conner, Aaron Jones

Austin Ekeler - Fantasy Football Rankings, NFL Injury News, DFS Lineup Picks

Below you will find our fantasy football injuries report for running backs in Week 17, as of December 31. The injury statuses for various NFL running backs are up in the air for Week 17, including Austin Ekeler, Christian McCaffrey, Rhamondre Stevenson, James Conner, and Aaron Jones.

As the fantasy football playoffs continue in full force, every decision, transaction, and lineup change matters. These are critical running back injuries to keep track of throughout the week. Being up-to-date on NFL injury news can give you an edge over your league mates in fantasy football.

To keep close tabs on all of the news across the NFL, make sure to favorite or bookmark the fantasy football player news page, or download the free RotoBaller fantasy football mobile app with push notification alerts on all the latest news. Let's look at the updates for some running backs and see whether they may play in Week 17.

Be sure to check all of our fantasy football rankings for 2024 fantasy football drafts:

 

Austin Ekeler Injury Update

Ekeler (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the injury report. Not only will he play Sunday, but he has an opportunity to finish as the overall RB1 in PPR leagues this week.

 

Christian McCaffrey Injury Update

McCaffrey (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report. He'll suit up in Week 17 and rank as an RB1 in fantasy football, but we could see the 49ers lighten his workload if they jump out to an early lead against the Raiders.

 

Rhamondre Stevenson Injury Update

Stevenson (ankle) was limited in practice on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable for Week 17 but is trending towards playing, just like he did for the Patriots' first 15 games. If active, the second-year back ranks as a fringe top-12 back in fantasy football.

 

James Conner Injury Update

Conner (illness) was a full participant on Friday after missing the two previous practices. He has been removed from the injury report and will play in Week 17 while ranking as a fringe RB1.

 

Aaron Jones Injury Update

Jones (knee, ankle) was limited in practice all week long but has been removed from the final injury report. He will play on Sunday, barring a setback. Consider him a high-end RB2 in fantasy football.

 

Alvin Kamara Injury Update

Kamara (quad) missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before upgrading to full participation on Friday. He faces minimal competition in the Saints' backfield and is primed to rank as a strong RB2 option versus the Eagles.

 

Miles Sanders Injury Update

Sanders (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been cleared to play in Week 17. With Jalen Hurts (shoulder) sidelined, Sanders should have a major role in the rushing attack. Consider him a mid-to-low RB2 versus New Orleans.

 

Kenneth Walker III Injury Update

Walker (ankle) was limited for the second consecutive day and is officially questionable to play against the Jets in Week 17. If active, he should see a full workload while ranking as an RB2.

 

Antonio Gibson Injury Update

Gibson (foot, knee) did not practice at all this week, so it was no surprise when the Commanders ruled him out ahead of Sunday's game versus the Browns. Brian Robinson Jr. should absolutely feast against Cleveland.

 

Damien Harris Injury Update

Harris (thigh) was limited on Wednesday, missed Thursday's practice due to a personal matter, then upgraded to a full participant on Friday. He'll play on Sunday but will likely operate as Stevenson's backup, dropping him to the RB4 tier versus Miami.

 

Elijah Mitchell Injury Update

Mitchell (knee) won't be activated from injured reserve this week. Look for Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price to back up McCaffrey once again.

 

DeeJay Dallas Injury Update

Despite being limited in practice all week long, Dallas (ankle) does no carry an injury report into Sunday's game against the Jets. He caught six passes for 32 yards last week but should be viewed as nothing more than an RB4 in Week 17 (assuming Walker plays).

 

Jordan Mason Injury Update

Mason (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday and will play against the Raiders in Week 17. He played primarily on special teams last week but could see some offensive snaps if the 49ers jump out to an early lead on Sunday.

 

Zamir White Injury Update

White (ankle) was limited in practice all week long and is officially questionable to play against the 49ers on Sunday. Even if active, he'll back up Josh Jacobs and therefore isn't on the redraft radar.

 

Justin Jackson Injury Update

Jackson (hip) was added to the injury report after practicing in a limited capacity on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable. Even if active, Jackson will operate as the Lions' No. 3 back and isn't on the fantasy radar.

 

Dare Ogunbowale Injury Update

Ogunbowale (knee) was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday. He is officially questionable for Week 17 versus Jacksonville. The Texans' crowded backfield features three backs, none of whom rank as clear-cut top-36 options in fantasy football.

 

Travis Homer Injury Update

Homer (ankle) didn't practice at all this week. However, the Seahawks have listed him as questionable, leaving the door open for him to play against the Jets. If active, he would most likely operate as Seattle's No. 3 running back.

 

Dwayne Washington Injury Update

Washington (illness) missed yet another week of practice due to a nagging migraine issue. He has been ruled out for Week 17. David Johnson and Taysom Hill will register touches out of the backfield behind Alvin Kamara.
