  • Gurley (quad) 'good pace to hopefully play'
    Coach Sean McVay said, "I think he’s (Todd Gurley) on a good pace to hopefully be able to play on Sunday."

    Advice: Gurley is expected to be limited in practice again Thursday. He appears to be trending towards suiting up this week, but clearly isn't operating at 100%. Malcolm Brown (68% snaps) worked well ahead of Darrell Henderson (32%) during Gurley's absence last week. Gurley would undoubtedly retake control of the backfield if active, but it's probably more realistic to expect a snap rate in the 60-70% range as opposed to the 93% rate he posted in Week 5.

  • Bucs have no interest in trading O.J. Howard
    Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports the Bucs won't trade O.J. Howard.

    Advice: Howard hasn't been utilized in the Bucs' passing game as often as most would like but that doesn't mean the Bucs are going to be trading away their young tight end. The Bucs have team control over his contract for two or three more seasons, so there's not a lot of incentive to dish him away at the moment. Howard will likely continue to see his 2-5 targets per game as a boom-or-bust TE2 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:47 pm

    Bucs promoted WR Amara Darboh from the practice squad.

    Advice: Darboh wasn't able to crack the Seahawks roster at the beginning of this season due to various injuries, but he'll get another chance in Tampa Bay. Darboh will be a special teamer for the Bucs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:38 pm

  • Raiders extend Darren Waller through 2023
    Raiders signed Darren Waller to a contract extension through 2023.

    Advice: Waller was going to be a restricted free agent in 2020, so the Raiders are getting ahead of the market to sign their breakout tight end to a long-term deal. NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports Waller is expected to receive $9 million annually on the three new years of his contract, which makes Waller a top-10 paid tight end. It's a fantastic story for a player who has battled addiction as a young adult. Waller will bring his 71.8 yards per game average to Green Bay for a Week 7 matchup with the Packers. He's earned every-week TE1 status with his early-season performances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:23 pm

  • Malcolm Brown (ankle) doesn't practice Wed.
    Malcolm Brown (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Brown's Week 7 status is up in the air, but we'll learn more based on Thursday and Friday's injury reports. The same can be said with Todd Gurley, who was limited Wednesday with his ongoing thigh contusion. If neither can get ready in time, rookie Darrell Henderson would be projected for a lot of work against the Falcons this Sunday. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:44 pm

  • Jimmy Graham (ankle) also DNP on Wednesday
    Jimmy Graham (ankle) "did not participate" Wednesday according to the Packers' estimated practice report.

    Advice: The Packers' DNP list on Wednesday includes Graham, Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee), and Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest). If you're reading this, there's a chance the Packers call you for a pass-catching tryout at this point. It's unclear how serious Graham's ankle injury is, so we'll have to wait until Thursday and Friday's injury report to clear things up, but he could be settling in for a slightly larger workload Week 7 if the receivers are unable to heal up in time. To date, Graham has been a zero-floor TE2 even with Adams missing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:42 pm

  • Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) DNP
    Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) "did not participate" Wednesday according to the Packers' estimated practice report.

    Advice: Allison took a very hard hit to the head in Week 6 and hasn't been lifted from the concussion protocol. To make matters worse for the Packers, Davante Adams (toe) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) also did not practice. The injury reports on Thursday and Friday will indicate which, if any, receivers will suit up against the Raiders on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm

    Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) "did not participate" Wednesday according to the Packers' estimated practice report.

    Advice: Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison were estimated to miss practice, too. Valdes-Scantling was rolled up on last week but was able to tough it out in the second half. The DNP tag is a tad concerning, although it's too early in the week to panic. MVS has two days to get in a limited practice to get back on track for a Week 7 start against the Raiders. He'll be a bye-week flex option if he's ready to go. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:28 pm

  • Adams, MVS, Allison listed as DNP Wednesday
    Davante Adams (toe) "did not participate" Wednesday according to the Packers' estimated practice report.

    Advice: The Packers did not actually practice, but they still have to estimate an injury report. Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Geronimo Allison were all listed as DNPs, which explains why the Packers signed WR Ryan Grant earlier. Adams is still left without a timetable as he works his way through a turf toe. He'll need to get back onto the practice field before suiting up for a game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:20 pm

    Travis Benjamin (quad) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Benjamin has been playing through injuries this season, but even when he's at full health, he's an afterthought in the offense. Philip Rivers will be funneling targets to Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, and the running backs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:07 pm

    Adrian Peterson (quad) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: As was Chris Thompson (toe). Peterson is coming off his best game of the season (23/118) in Washington's win over Miami, but the 34-year-old's 25 touches could be the cause. Wendell Smallwood and Josh Ferguson are the only two available backs behind AP and Thompson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:55 pm

    Advice: Even though Kamara isn't expected to practice this week, he still believes he has "a shot to play." All signs point to him missing Sunday following the signing of Zach Zenner as insurance. Whatever the case, Latavius Murray needs to be prioritized off waivers as an every-down back in the event Kamara's ruled out for Week 7 against the Bears. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm

    Todd Gurley (quad) will practice Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be limited to individual drills. Coach Sean McVay also said Malcolm Brown (ankle) is day-to-day. Time will tell how this backfield shakes out, but rookie Darrell Henderson needs to universally rostered across fantasy leagues just in case both are ruled out. Pending Brown's health, he'll likely lead this backfield in a 60/40 timeshare if available (and Gurley's scratched). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:29 pm

  • LaFleur: 'No plan' to reduce Graham's role
    Packers coach Matt LaFleur said there are "no plans" to reduce Jimmy Graham's role moving forward.

    Advice: Not only are there no plans to relieve Graham in favor of preseason star Robert Tonyan and vet Mercedes Lewis, LaFleur said he wants "to make sure [Graham] knows we believe in him." Even with Davante Adams (toe) out the past two games, Graham's merely caught 5-of-8 targets for 58 yards and a dropped touchdown in that stretch. With the Packers declaring rookie TE Jace Sternberger eligible to return from IR, it's possible Graham's phased out of the offense entirely by Week 10. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:41 pm

    Coach Matt Nagy is "cautiously optimistic" Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will play Week 7 against the Saints.

    Advice: Trubisky is practicing in full Wednesday, but Nagy admitted it's a "balancing act" and Chase Daniel will get some first-team reps should Trubisky not gain clearance. All in all, the gap between Trubisky and Daniel isn't that large. Neither is very good. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 am

  • Kamara (ankle) has 'a shot to play' Week 7
    NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports Alvin Kamara has "a high ankle-type issue" that will limit him in practice.

    Advice: Kamara still believes he has "a shot to play" this Sunday against the Bears, but he's best viewed as questionable for now. The star running back was clearly slowed by his ankle injury last week, which led to a season-low 11 carries. If Kamara can't get healthy in time, Latavius Murray would slide into a featured role as a volume-based RB2 for fantasy purposes. Kamara's availability in practice this week will be extremely important for his Week 7 status. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:38 pm

  • Jimmy Graham catches two balls in MNF win
    Jimmy Graham caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the Lions.

    Advice: Completely devoid of speed and ball skills at this stage of his career, Graham is screaming down the Antonio Gates path as a catch-and-fall guy while seeing red-zone looks. Graham is an unexciting low-floor option for Week 7 against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:30 pm

    Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught both of his targets for 48 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the Lions.

    Advice: MVS wasn't targeted until catching a 46-yard bomb on the first play of the fourth quarter. He rolled up his ankle earlier in the contest but returned for the start of the second half. MVS has been held to 52 yards or fewer in all but one game this season. Now a run-dominated offense, Aaron Rodgers isn't able to support three and four pass-catchers like in years past. MVS will be a low-floor WR4 option next week against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:24 pm

  • Allison (3-40) done for night with concussion
    Geronimo Allison exited Monday night's Week 6 game with a concussion and chest injury and will not return.

    Advice: Prior to leaving, Allison reeled in three of his team-high seven targets for 40 scoreless yards. He was injured on a questionable penalized hit on the back end with the defender also going for the ball. Allison hasn't had a productive start to the season and shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, even with Davante Adams missing the last two games with a toe injury. Allen Lazard caught a 35-yard touchdown out of the slot in Allison's place in the fourth quarter. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:58 pm

    Travis Benjamin caught 1-of-4 targets for zero yards in the Chargers' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Benjamin drew a deep ball and end zone target from Philip Rivers, but was just shy of coming down with both. The Chargers’ No. 3 WR is their No. 6 pass-game option more weeks than not and nothing more than a desperate dart throw in fantasy formats of all shapes and sizes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:04 pm

  • Malcolm Brown has 40 yards in place of Gurley
    Malcolm Brown rushed 11 times for 40 yards in the Rams' Week 6 loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: He didn't catch a pass. Brown got the start in place of an injured Todd Gurley (quad), but the Rams' offense was as pitiful as it gets, producing zero points after the opening drive and failing to convert a single third or fourth down. The offensive line is a major problem. Brown is nothing more than an RB4 when Gurley is healthy. He should be back for Week 7 against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:28 pm

  • Cook scores Saints' only touchdown of Week 6
    Jared Cook snagged all three of his targets for 37 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Saints’ Week 6 win over Jacksonville.

    Advice: He supplied the game's lone touchdown Sunday, skying over Jarrod Wilson for a five-yard score on a well-placed ball from Teddy Bridgewater. Cook went his first four games without a touchdown but has now visited the end zone in consecutive weeks. The veteran has only cleared 40 yards once this season, though the Saints are involving him enough (particularly inside the red zone) for him to warrant attention at a weak fantasy position. He gets the Bears—not an easy assignment by any measure—in Week 7. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:01 pm

    Advice: The Redskins stuck to their plan of featuring Peterson, who had a season high in carries. He also got involved in the pass game with two catches for 18 yards. Peterson ran hard and looked the best he has all season, though it came against a tanking Dolphins team. This was a statement game from Peterson after fired coach Jay Gruden made him a healthy scratch in Week 1 and rarely used him the last few weeks. With the Redskins moving to a run-heavy scheme under Bill Callahan, Peterson is on the RB2 map against the 49ers in Week 7. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:23 pm

  • Hobbled Kamara struggles to 66 yds in Week 6
    Alvin Kamara logged 31 yards on 11 carries while adding seven catches for 35 yards on eight targets Sunday in the Saints’ Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Kamara was not himself Sunday, which was probably to be expected after tweaking his ankle at practice this week. The Saints didn't shy from feeding him the ball, though the ankle issue clearly limited his effectiveness. His longest run went for all of seven yards. Kamara made a brief cameo in the medical tent during the first quarter, but only missed a handful of snaps. The Saints probably won't push him at practice this week, though we'd expect Kamara to suit up for next Sunday's game in Chicago. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:11 pm

    Alvin Kamara (ankle) is active for Week 6 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: Kamara had been a legitimate question mark after tweaking his ankle at practice this week, but he'll gut it out Sunday in Jacksonville. There's risk, both of re-injury and a reduced workload, though Kamara should still be viewed as an RB1 across all fantasy platforms. QB Drew Brees, CB Ken Crawley, C Nick Easton, OT Ethan Greenidge, S Saquan Hampton, DE Trey Hendrickson and WR Tre'Quan Smith round out New Orleans' inactives for Week 6.

  • 'Chance' Todd Gurley (quad) returns in Week 7
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Todd Gurley (quad) will have a "chance" to return for the Rams' Week 7 game in Atlanta.

    Advice: Gurley's quad/thigh issue could only cost him a game, though obviously that would be a best-case scenario for Los Angeles and far from a sure thing given his extensive injury history. Without him, the Rams will turn to Malcolm Brown as their workhorse with third-stringer Darrell Henderson elevated to handcuff status. Gurley has been productive this year (five touchdowns), though he hasn't received his usual workload, averaging a modest 15.6 touches per game through five appearances. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:13 am

  • Malcolm Brown slated for featured role Sunday
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Malcolm Brown is slated to be the Rams' "featured back" for Sunday's Week 6 game against the 49ers with Darrell Henderson "sprinkled in."

    Advice: This was the expectation after Todd Gurley was ruled out with a bruised thigh, an injury that could cost him multiple games. The plan is for Brown to handle workhorse responsibilities with Henderson, who has seen all of two snaps this season, to work in a change-of-pace capacity. It's not the sexiest matchup—the Niners have been a tough team to run on this year. But Brown's expected volume as the Rams' bell-cow and goal-line finisher puts him squarely in RB2 range. He'll be a chalky DFS play as well, particularly at his bargain bin $4,800 salary on FanDuel. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:11 am

  • Alvin Kamara (ankle) expected to play Sunday
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Alvin Kamara (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: Kamara participated in New Orleans' walkthrough on Saturday and is reportedly expected to suit up barring any setbacks. The Saints' offense has flowed through the explosive 24-year-old on 22.3 touches and 78 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Teddy Bridgewater's three starts and that shouldn't change against Jacksonville's bottom-of-the-barrel rush defense DVOA on Sunday. Latavius Murray is merely a season-long stash and easy DFS fade assuming Kamara is declared active for Week 6. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:13 pm

  • Todd Gurley (quad) ruled out for Week 6
    Todd Gurley (quad) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson, and John Kelly will handle running back duties this week while Gurley gets more time to heal up from a thigh contusion. Brown is expected to lead the backfield in snaps and touches, so he's a fine RB2 option given his touchdown equity. Henderson only has one NFL carry, but he offers some explosiveness as a runner and is a capable pass-catcher. It's uncertain how much run he actually gets this week, especially with Kelly activated from the practice squad. Henderson, however, has enough upside to be a worthwhile add at the end of fantasy benches. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:26 pm

    Advice: MVS should suit up Monday night against the Lions, which is particularly good news considering Davante Adams (toe) is reportedly trending towards missing another game. Still, it's tough to expect much from either Valdes-Scantling (1-18-0 in Week 5), Geronimo Allison (2-28-0) or Jake Kumerow (1-9-0) if Adams is again inactive.

    Alvin Kamara (ankle) is questionable for the Saints' Week 6 matchup against the Jaguars.

    Advice: The Saints have fed Kamara 20-plus touches in all but one game this season. Only Austin Ekeler (39 receptions), Christian McCaffrey (31) and Le'Veon Bell (27) have more catches than Kamara (26) through five weeks. Latavius Murray would be a high-end RB2 with Kamara sidelined. It'd be tough to sit Kamara if active due to his high-usage pass-game role, even if there's a risk of reduced snaps.

    Advice: Gurley's expected absence means that Malcolm Brown should step in as the offense's featured back. Backup Darrell Henderson also figures to be involved, but the rookie has played just two snaps all season.

    Advice: Coach Sean Payton declined to elaborate on Kamara's absence after he popped up on the injury report with an ankle issue Thursday. We'll know more when the official injury report is released, but it certainly seems like Kamara is at least a risk to play limited snaps Sunday against the Jaguars. Latavius Murray could be fired up as a high-end RB2 and borderline RB1 if Kamara is ultimately sidelined. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:54 am

  • 'Doesn't seem likely' Adams (toe) plays MNF
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Davante Adams (toe) is unlikely to suit up Monday night against the Lions.

    Advice: The Packers' No. 1 WR hasn't practiced all week and should be considered doubtful for Monday night. Rapoport did note that a return looms and that Adams originally had a timetable of 2-6 weeks. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will continues to work as the offense's clear-cut top-two WRs with Adams sidelined, while Jake Kumerow will slide into the mix in 3-WR sets.

"I'm going to get back when it's healed and when it's ready to go. I'll listen to my body and listen to our doctors." Adams won't require surgery, though he'd rather let his toe heal than risk further injury. He missed practice again Friday.

  • Todd Gurley misses another practice Thursday
    Todd Gurley (quad) remained sidelined on Thursday.

    Advice: There has yet to be a single encouraging sign as to Gurley's Week 6 status. It appears the Rams will be forced to lean on Malcolm Brown as their 70-75 percent back with untested rookie Darrell Henderson — he's played two snaps all year — changing the pace. Brown will be a locked-in RB2 in Gurley's likely absence, Henderson a high-risk FLEX. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:29 pm

  • Alvin Kamara (ankle) pops up on injury report
    Alvin Kamara was added to Thursday's injury report with an ankle issue, getting in a limited session.

    Advice: It means Kamara tweaked something on Thursday. If it's minor, an ankle problem would be preferable to a calf or hamstring, but we don't know for sure that it's minor. In all likelihood, it is. Even a "limited" session on Friday would have Kamara on track to start in Jacksonville. Sit tight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:10 pm

  • Redskins expected to feature Adrian Peterson
    The Redskins are expected to feature Adrian Peterson in Week 6 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Interim coach Bill Callahan, who is employed by an NFL team in the year 2019, literally believes that the running game is more about attempts than efficiency. If you still somehow believe that, 34-year-old Peterson is your man. Peterson does have an A+ matchup in the tanking Dolphins. Peterson is a locked-in FLEX for Week 6 who could pass as an RB2.

  • Valdes-Scantling gets in 'limited' practice
    Marquez Valdes-Scantling was limited with hamstring and calf issues on Thursday.

    Advice: It would appear the Packers are just limiting MVS' reps, though a receiver's status can never be taken for granted when they are listed with soft-tissue injuries. Coming off a disappointing day in Davante Adams' Week 5 absence, MVS will be a low-floor WR4 with Adams once again expected to sit against the Lions. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:57 pm

  • Adams 'not optimistic' about playing Week 6
    According to ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky, Davante Adams (toe) is "not optimistic" about his availability for Monday's Week 6 game against the Lions.

    Advice: It's been two weeks since Adams was first diagnosed with turf toe (he suffered the injury in a Thursday night loss to Philadelphia), though it appears he's made minimal progress. "It doesn't feel how I want it to feel at the moment," Adams admitted after sitting out Thursday's practice. In all likelihood, the star wideout will be a spectator when the Packers host Detroit Monday night. With Adams headed for another absence, look for Green Bay to run its offense through Aaron Jones, who exploded for four touchdowns on a career-best 182 yards (107 rushing, 75 receiving) in last week's win over Dallas.

  • Todd Gurley (quad) 'up in the air' for Week 6
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Todd Gurley's status for Week 6 against the 49ers is "very much up in the air."

    Advice: Gurley came out of last week's Thursday night loss to Seattle with a quad injury. The team suspected it was only a minor setback, though the fact that it's still bothering him a week later (Gurley was absent from Wednesday's practice) is obviously a cause for concern. With Gurley looking iffy for Sunday, backup Malcolm Brown needs to be rostered in all formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:21 am

  • Davante Adams (toe) not practicing Thursday
    Davante Adams (toe) did not practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Today was the Packers' first injury report of the week ahead of their Monday night date with the Lions. Adams' injury has been billed as nothing serious, but he couldn't return after a 10-day layoff in Week 5 and is now in real danger of missing his second consecutive game. It is possible the Pack are keeping Adams off his feet for as long as possible, but he needs to get in at least a limited session on Friday or Saturday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:55 am

  • Leftwich: O.J. Howard's time is coming
    Buccaneers OC Byron Leftwich said O.J. Howard's "time is coming."

    Advice: But when? Howard has been among the year's biggest letdowns in fantasy, ranking 17th among tight ends in yards (141), 23rd in catches (11) and 26th in targets (14), all while garnering PFF's worst run-blocking grade out of 68 positional qualifiers. The 2017 first-rounder is still plenty talented, though obviously he's gone through some growing pains adjusting to Leftwich's new scheme. Maybe a second wind is coming, but at present, Howard is barely worth rostering, even at a sparse fantasy position. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:25 am

  • Todd Gurley is day to day with quad injury
    Todd Gurley (quad) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Sean McVay said Gurley is day to day with a thigh contusion. He'll have to get in at least a limited practice by Friday to have a real shot at suiting up against the 49ers this week. Gurley's handcuff Malcolm Brown needs to be owned in most leagues just in case Gurley can't get ready in time. This quad injury isn't directly related to the knee arthritis that's arguably slowed him down in 2019, but it's another issue worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:32 pm

  • Bill Callahan to put an emphasis on the run
    According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan believes the team didn't run the ball enough under Jay Gruden.

    Advice: Per Anderson, Callahan expressed this view in the company of both players and coaches last week, noting he was "hard-pressed" to remember a team with fewer rushing attempts to start a season. Emphasizing the run isn't going to solve the Redskins' problems, though Callahan can do what he wants now that he's taken over for Gruden as the team's interim head coach. Adrian Peterson could see more work added to his plate with Callahan calling the shots, though negative game script will continue to be a thorn in his side. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:54 am
