Welcome to the Sunday Morning Preview! Hopefully last night you poured yourself a drink, read our Saturday Nightcap, and woke up feeling refreshed for a full day of watching football while your significant other gives you the side-eye for paying attention to your scores on your phone than the game you are making them watch.

Still, sometimes things change during the night. Players are confirmed "Out" with an injury that was "Questionable" only the day before, people tinker with their lineups while you slept and suddenly there is someone left on waivers that you did not notice before.

That is what this preview is here for! You will find the biggest injury updates and reminders, along with a waiver recommendation at each position for Yahoo and ESPN in case you still have a spot that needs shoring up for today's games. [NOTE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, today's preview will be brief in an effort to ensure that the article is published on time].
