  • Ertz (ankle) now expected to miss 4-6 weeks
    Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. 

    Advice: NFL Network's Mike Garofolo described the injury as a high-ankle sprain that would put Ertz's return date sometime around Thanksgiving. It's a few weeks longer than the original recovery time frame of 3-4 weeks. Ertz drafters should be working the waiver wire for streaming tight end options in the meantime. Richard Rodgers, the Eagles' new No. 1 tight end, is a borderline option Thursday night against the Giants.  Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago

  • DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) misses practice Wednesday
    Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was held out of practice on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Hopkins dealt with an ankle injury ahead of Weeks 4 and 5 but ultimately suited up for both contests, combining for 16 targets and over 170 yards. It would be a shock if he is not active in Week 7 against the Seahawks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:41 pm

    Laviska Shenault (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: This hamstring injury has been an ongoing issue for Shenault and has placed him on the injury report over the last two weeks. He then plays on Sunday, so unless something changes it will not impact your fantasy lineup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:29 pm

    D.J. Chark (ankle) practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is actually an improvement from one week ago at this time, as Chark was sidelined for Wednesday and Thursday ahead of Week 6. He should be good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, with the hopes of seeing another 14 targets headed in his direction. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:04 pm

  • Breshad Perriman (ankle, knee) back on inj report
    Breshad Perriman (ankle, knee) was limited for Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Perriman returned to the Jets lineup on Sunday for the first time since Week 2, catching 4-of-8 targets for 62 yards - which led the team. Hopefully playing 89 percent of the team's snaps did not lead to a setback. We suggest avoiding all Jets not named Jamison Crowder against the Bills in Week 7. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:32 pm

  • Curtis Samuel (knee) still limited on Wednesday
    Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice. 

    Advice: "We'll see how he responds tomorrow, how he feels," head coach Matt Rhule said. "I think the thing with Curtis is we're not going to rush him. If he can go, great, but if not, we have a lot of confidence in the other guys." Samuel sat out Sunday's game against the Bears, and the Panthers clearly do not view him as an important enough piece to hurry back into the lineup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:21 pm

  • Noah Fant (ankle) starts off week 'limited'
    Noah Fant (ankle) remained "limited" in Wednesday's practice. 

    Advice: Fant got in limited practices last week before sitting out against the Patriots. He is presumably closer to suiting up now, though we have seen a number of "limited" practice players miss several weeks of action this year. If Fant can get the go-ahead, he will immediately slide back in as a top-eight option up the seam.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:49 pm

  • Robert Tonyan (ankle) absent for Packers Wednesday
    Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Tonyan played a season-low 59% of the snaps against the Bucs after limping off in the second quarter. He eventually returned for the second half, but Tonyan's numbers were forgettable with 3-25-0 on four targets on a day Aaron Rodgers was deleted by Tampa's stifling defense. Tonyan will be a TE1 if he suits up this week against Houston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm

    Jonnu Smith (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: After Smith was forced from Week 6 against the Texans and didn't return, it was reported his ankle sprain was minor. Starting the week off with a limited practice is a good sign for his Week 7 availability against the Steelers, but he's unlikely to be at 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:38 pm

    Kareem Hunt (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Jones played through his hamstring issue last week against Minnesota, exploding for 8-137-2 on 10 targets in the Falcons' first win. This might be more of the coaching staff giving Jones some veteran rest early in the week. We'd expect him to play against the Lions. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:30 pm

    Marvin Jones (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first time Jones has been listed on the injury report this season. He's battled knee issues the past couple years and is now on the wrong side of 30, so this is definitely something to monitor ahead of a get-right spot against the Falcons. Jones has yet to top 55 yards in a game this season and looks washed. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm

    Jamison Crowder (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

  • Schefter: SEA, others interested in Antonio Brown
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seahawks and "other teams" are interested in signing suspended free agent Antonio Brown.

    Advice: A.B. is finalizing his eight-week suspension to open the season, but with that coming to a close in 12 days, teams are starting to make some calls to the 32-year-old. The Seahawks have always been linked closest to Brown dating back to the summer. According to Schefter, Seattle is "positioned to make a push to sign" Brown. His addition would likely push David Moore out of three-wide sets and have an effect on DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm

  • Diontae Johnson (back) practicing fully for Week 7
    Diontae Johnson (back) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Titans.

    Advice: With Johnson now healthy, it will be very interesting to see how the Steelers divvy up the receiver snaps between he, JuJu Smith-Schuster, stud rookie Chase Claypool, and James Washington. It was Washington who led the team in targets last week with Johnson sidelined. JuJu has easily been the least explosive of the group through six weeks, but Johnson also hasn't been able to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:40 pm

  • Ekeler (hammy, IR) to be back 'later than sooner'
    Speaking Wednesday, coach Anthony Lynn said Austin Ekeler (hamstring, I.R.) will be back "later than sooner."

    Advice: Lynn called Ekeler's hamstring strain "very serious." He's missed one game so far, but it doesn't sound like Ekeler will be coming off the I.R. when first eligible after three weeks. Justin Jackson out-snapped rookie Joshua Kelley 59% to 35% and saw 20 touches to Kelley's 12 in the first game without Ekeler two Monday nights ago against the Saints. Coming out of the bye, Jackson looks like the preferred RB2 play as a big home favorite against the Jaguars. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:25 pm

    Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He left Week 6 with a pulled hamstring, and coach Ron Rivera made it sound like the rookie won't play this week against the Cowboys. It's anybody's guess as to what Washington's plan is behind Terry McLaurin. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:35 am

  • Logan Thomas (neck) misses practice on Wednesday
    Logan Thomas (neck) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first we've heard of a neck issue for Thomas. A popular positive regression candidate early in the year, Thomas simply plays in too bad of an offense despite seeing heavy snaps and routes. He's drawn exactly four targets in three straight games but did score his first touchdown since Week 1 last Sunday in a loss to the Giants. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 am

  • Fitzpatrick 'shocked, heartbroken' by move to Tua
    Ryan Fitzpatrick said he was "shocked" by the Dolphins' decision to bench him and name Tua Tagovailoa the starter for Week 8 against the Rams.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick was caught off guard when he was called into coach Brian Flores' office to learn the news and admitted it "broke his heart" to find out he's not the starter anymore. "I basically got fired yesterday and my day today consisted of Zoom meetings listening to the guy who fired me, and being in a spaced out room listening to the guy who replaced me," Fitzpatrick said. He felt the Dolphins were his team right now, and he was playing well, leading the Dolphins to a 3-3 record headed into their bye week. Clearly, if this was Miami's plan all along, Fitzpatrick had no idea and was blindsided by it. There's been some chatter that the Dolphins could potentially listen to trade offers for Fitzpatrick ahead of the November 3 deadline. The NFL is always more fun when Fitzpatrick is playing.

  • Reid 'isn't sure' if Le'Veon will be active Week 7
    Speaking Wednesday, coach Andy Reid said he wasn't sure if Le'Veon Bell will even be active for Week 7 against the Broncos.

    Advice: It would be good news for Clyde Edwards-Helaire's fantasy prospects with the Chiefs as heavy 10.5-point road favorites. CEH is coming off a 161-yard rushing effort against Buffalo and might be able to squeak out one more lock-and-load RB1 week out of things if Bell is unable to pick up the offense in time to play Sunday. Reid said Bell's Week 7 status will all depend on how comfortable he is with the playbook. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 am

    Advice: Sanders was never expected to play. He's facing a 1-2 week timetable to return from his knee injury. Boston Scott will start, with Corey Clement mixing in as the No. 2 back. With the Eagles playing on Thursday night, Sanders has a few extra days to get ready for Week 8. It's possible Philly holds out Sanders through their Week 9 bye. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 am

  • Tomlin: Diontae (back) will practice Wednesday
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Diontae Johnson (back) will be on the field when the team returns to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a significant development since Johnson had previously taken Wednesdays off to recover from past injuries. He's clearly trending in the right direction to return to the field against the Titans. Johnson has yet to play a full game since Chase Claypool was thrust into the lineup, but the two are expected to remain afloat ahead of JuJu Smith-Schuster even when all three are (finally) on the field together. This situation could become a mess for fantasy if James Washington also keeps involved. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:41 am

    DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-8 targets for 73 yards in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Nuk was targeted on 33% of Kyler Murray's 24 throws, but he completed just nine total. It was Hopkins' first game of the season with fewer than six catches.

    Advice: Ertz will presumably be moved to injured reserve in the coming days with a high-ankle sprain. The Eagles will also be short Miles Sanders (knee) for 1-2 weeks but are expected to get back both DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Dallas Goedert (ankle) Thursday night. Ertz, who had totaled 24/178/1 and 3.9 yards per target through six games, can be universally dropped across re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:29 am

  • Eagles expect Miles Sanders (knee) to sit Thursday
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Miles Sanders (knee) is not expected to play in Week 7 against the Giants.

    Advice: Sanders is only expected to miss "1-2 weeks," making him questionable for the team's Week 8 game against the Cowboys. Boston Scott out-snapped (38 to 25) and out-touched (11 to 8) Corey Clement minus Sanders in Week 1 but neither offered much in terms of production. Scott is a viable filler for those struggling to fill spots over the bye weeks even if he is projected to split touches with Clement (and perhaps Jason Huntley, too).

    Advice: Smith caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards before leaving Tennessee's Week 6 game against the Texans before exiting with the injury. Blocking TE Anthony Firkser went on to catch eight passes for 113 yards and a touchdown, tilting Smith drafters into oblivion. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on Smith's practice status this week. It sounds like he avoided a log-term injury. Firkser would be a streaming option in deeper formats if Smith is out this week against the Steelers.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:54 am

  • Tonyan catches three passes, battles injury Week 6
    Robert Tonyan caught 3-of-4 targets for 25 yards in Green Bay's disastrous Week 6 loss to the Bucs.

    Advice: Tonyan exited for a short stint during the second quarter and returned in the second half. Although his box score doesn't pop, the 26-year-old's 11.4% target share from Aaron Rodgers is encouraging given Davante Adams' (6/61) return to Green Bay's lineup. This performance can be forgotten as Tonyan will again rank as a top-12 tight end in Week 7 against the Texans. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:27 pm

    Advice: Zach Ertz (ankle) also needs an MRI. Sanders is the "greater concern" after his knee bent at the end of a 74-yard run in the second half. Even if Sanders avoids structural damage, it's going to be hard for him to get cleared with the Eagles playing on Thursday night in Week 7. Boston Scott will be the Eagles' lead back if Sanders misses time.

    Jamison Crowder caught 7-of-13 targets for 48 yards in the Jets' Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Crowder has seen double-digit targets in all four games he's played this season, and this was his first sub-100 yards day of the year, playing with Joe Flacco, who averaged a pitiful 4.2 yards per attempt in this one. Crowder's target volume has made him an every-week WR2 ahead of a Week 7 date with the Bills. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:24 pm

  • Fitzpatrick tosses 3 TDs in easy win over Jets
    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 18-of-27 passes for 191 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Dolphins' 24-0, Week 6 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick threw all three of his touchdowns in the first half, hooking up with Adam Shaheen, Preston Williams, and Durham Smythe for three inside-the-five scores. Neither offense did anything of note after the half, and rookie Tua Tagovailoa actually made his NFL debut late in the fourth quarter, completing both of his passes for nine yards. Fitzpatrick rushed just one time for four yards. He looked like he was going to have a huge game after the first half, but it was still a strong stat line.

    Laviska Shenault caught 3-of-7 targets for 10 yards in the Jaguars' Week 6 loss to the Lions, "adding" a one-yard rush. 

    Advice: With the hype growing coming off back-to-back 79-yard receiving efforts, Shenault took a backseat to Keelan Cole and D.J. Chark. Cole went off for 143 yards while Chark drew 14 targets. Shenault has done well to establish his upside, but his floor remains close to zero points. He will be a risk/reward WR4 for Week 7 vs. the Chargers.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:36 pm

    Advice: Ertz's ten targets were tied for the team lead, so he has that going for him, which is nice. Ertz, hobbled for much of Sunday's contest, was helped off the field and into the locker room.

    Advice: Jones, whose season high for yards was 55 back in Week 1, has now been held under 10 in back-to-back games. With A.J. Green and T.Y. Hilton drawing most of the "washed" headlines, Jones is flying under the radar. He has 10 total targets in three games since Kenny Golladay's return.

    Advice: Mixon actually exited for a short period in the first half but was able to return after the intermission. His lone touchdown was set up by Tee Higgins' (6/125) 67-yard catch along the sideline in the second quarter. WIth 47 carries in his last three starts, Mixon's role (assuming he's healthy in Week 7) remains that of a workhorse RB1.

  • Sanders rushes for 118, leaves with knee injury
    Miles Sanders rushed nine times for 118 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 loss to the Ravens, adding one reception for -6 yards. 

    Advice: For the second straight week, Sanders got most of his rushing yardage on a single carry, busting off a 74-yard run that ended with a fumble into the end zone; J.J. Acega-Whiteside recovered the ball for a touchdown. Sanders had an ugly touchdown drop just before his big run -- he was unable to adjust his body after turning the wrong way in pursuit of the ball. Sanders would be a low-end RB1 next week against the Giants if he gets the green light to play through the knee injury.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:50 pm

    D.J. Chark caught 7-of-14 targets for 45 yards in the Jaguars' Week 6 loss to the Lions. 

    Advice: Genuinely questionable to suit up, Chark ended up setting a new season high for targets by five even as Keelan Cole dominated the production. That would not have been the case had Gardner Minshew hit Chark for what should have been an elementary 50-plus yard gain in the second half, but these things happen when Minshew is your quarterback. Seemingly healthy and looking to be established by the coaching staff, Chark will find himself back inside the top 30 for Week 7 against the Chargers.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:39 pm

  • Jarvis Landry posts 3-40 against Steelers in loss
    Jarvis Landry caught 3-of-5 targets for 40 yards in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Playing through ribs and hip injuries, Landry's three catches matched a season low and his 40 yards were the second-fewest single-game output this year. Baker Mayfield was dreadful before getting benched in the third quarter. But Landry really hasn't been great this year, as he doesn't look close to 100% over his offseason hip surgery.

    Advice: He caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards in the passing game. With the Browns getting totally steamrolled 38-7, the Browns didn't have a chance to #establish the run with Hunt. His 13 carries obviously led the team with Dontrell Hilliard and D'Ernest Johnson each seeing four. Nick Chubb will miss at least one more game on I.R.

    Logan Thomas caught 3-of-4 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 6 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Thomas caught his first touchdown since Week 1 on a tear-drop throw by Kyle Allen. He also kept up his streak of at least four targets in every game with the Washington Football Team. However, he has topped out at four targets in each of the past three weeks. Despite finding the end zone, Thomas only recorded a 9.5% target share. His lack of targets in recent weeks combined with Washington's struggling offense makes him a TE2 moving forward. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:38 pm

    Advice: Ridley was a first-down machine and converted a red zone target for an 8-yard score. He and Julio Jones dominated this poor Vikings secondary, and Ridley's day could've been bigger if not for second-half cramps. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward. Ridley and Jones can provide WR1 value for the rest of the season as long as the Falcons' defense remains a bottom-10 unit. Matt Ryan looked sharp in this one and that trend should continue with the Lions on schedule next. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:21 pm

    Advice: Ertz was helped off the field and into the locker room. He turned ten targets into four catches and 33 yards against Baltimore. Richard Rodgers would figure to get more playing time if Ertz is out next week.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:11 pm

  • Julio Jones (8-137-2) brings life to ATL offense
    Julio Jones caught 8-of-10 targets for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 6 win over the Vikings.

    Advice: It's safe to say Jones was truly healthy for this one. He was as explosive as always, showing off big-play potential on his two touchdowns. His first was a 20-yard strike and his second was a 40-yard run-and-catch on a broken 4th-down play. Jones' reinjury risk is the only thing separating him from the other elite fantasy receivers. With Atlanta expected to play little defense and find themselves in shootouts, Jones has a top-three ceiling for the rest of the season. Hopefully his hamstring injury is behind him. The Detroit Lions are Jones' next victim. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:04 pm

He was helped off the field in the fourth quarter after catching four of ten targets for 33 yards against Baltimore.

  • Jonnu Smith held to one grab before injuring ankle
    Jonnu Smith caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards before leaving Tennessee's Week 6 game against the Texans with a left ankle injury. 

    Advice: Smith limped off the field and slammed down his helmet in the first half. He spent some time getting re-taped and trying to get warmed back up, but he was never spotted again after being announced as "questionable." Smith battled an ankle issue earlier this season but did not miss any time. With their bye week passed and the Steelers on tap for Week 7, Smith's loss for any amount of time would be huge for the Titans and fantasy managers alike. Smith entered today with five scores in four games, and is quickly establishing himself as a top-five TE1.   Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:53 pm

    Advice: Panthers coach Matt Rhule said that Samuel's status would depend "on how he feels" prior to kick-off. Samuel must feel fine if the expectation is that he plays. He's been used as a receiver and a running back for much of the season with Christian McCaffrey on injured reserve. Samuel hasn't scored or topped five catches in a game this year.

    Advice: Perriman returns to an offense in desperate need of playmakers. They did not activate Denzel Mims off of injured reserve leaving Jamison Crowder as their only pass-catcher with any weekly upside. The team also cut ties with Le'Veon Bell since their last game. Perriman has been out since Week 2 with an ankle injury. He caught 5-of-7 targets for 29 yards in his two games played.

    Advice: Schefter notes the team will be testing Chark's ankle in pregame warmups before making a final decision, but he's now on the right side of questionable. It's worth questioning exactly how healthy Chark is after not practicing much this week. When fully healthy, Chark offers upside WR2/3 appeal, but he has no floor in the short term.

    Le'Veon Bell's contract is worth $690,000 with an additional $1 million in incentives.

    Advice: The Jets still owe Bell $6 million this year, so Bell opted for the best real-life landing spot instead of a possibly bigger pay day in Miami or Buffalo. For this little money, this was a solid mid-year signing for Kansas City while Clyde Edwards-Helaire makes rookie-year adjustments in pass protection and between the tackles. Bell will be eligible to return Week 7 and has some flex appeal immediately as the potential short-yardage back. Long term, touches between Bell and Edwards-Helaire will be dependent on how each back plays in the offense, but it'd be a surprise if this weren't a two-back committee of some sort.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:42 pm

  • Schefter: Chiefs agree to terms with Le'Veon Bell
    Chiefs agreed to terms with RB Le'Veon Bell, formerly of the Jets, on a one-year contract. 

    Advice: It's reportedly an "incentive-laden deal." Due to the league's COVID-19 protocols, Bell will be ineligible to suit up against the Bills on Monday. That leaves Week 7 against the Broncos as his Chiefs debut. The question immediately becomes the workload delineation in the Chiefs' backfield, as No. 32 overall pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire has sputtered since an impressive opener vs. the Texans' bottom-basement run defense. That has been especially true in early-down/short-yardage situations, where Bell figures to receive immediate opportunities. Bell will also be a threat to CEH's bread-and-butter pass-catching work. Even if CEH remains the lead back in a committee, this obviously devastates his RB1 value, and perhaps even knocks him out of the RB2 ranks. This is not a LeSean McCoy-style signing. Bell probably has more left in the tank than Adam Gase would lead you to believe, while coach Andy Reid unlocks running backs like few others. Bell could claim No. 1 duties and render CEH a COP back. CEH would do well to put on a show vs. the Bills' underachieving defense. Bell arrives right as the Chiefs are losing LG Kelechi Osemele for the season.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:49 pm

  • Panthers 'trying' to get Samuel more touches
    Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater said the team is trying to get the ball into Curtis Samuel's hands more often. 

    Advice: It's a familiar refrain. Carolina has utilized Samuel on third down and short this season, but he's fourth on the team in receiving through Week 5. “He’s a guy we want to try to get the ball (to) more, and not just third downs," Bridgewater said. "Try to find a way to get the ball in his hands because great things happen.” Samuel, a hybrid player in college, has 15 carries this season for 63 yards. Head coach Matt Rhule said he has "infinite respect for" Samuel. "He does the dirty jobs. He does the odd jobs," Rhule said. It's high praise for a player who has 34 touches on the season. Samuel is nothing more than a desperation flex option in 14-team leagues until his role changes.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:18 am

  • Noah Fant (ankle) limited in practice Wednesday
    Noah Fant (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Fant is still best viewed as week to week, but this was a step in the right direction and gives him a shot at playing Week 6 against the Patriots. A full participation by Friday's practice will be the biggest indicator that he's on the right side of questionable. With Courtland Sutton (ACL) out for the season, Fant offers TE1 appeal as a difference-making athlete over the middle. It could take a game or two to fully get going again.

  • Julio Jones (hamstring) misses practice Wednesday
    Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. 

    Advice: Julio missed Week 3 with the same injury, returned in Week 4 to play just 15 snaps, then remained sidelined for the entirety of Week 5. It is obviously unlikely that Jones plays in Week 6 if he fails to get in at least one limited session before Sunday's game against the Vikings. In his absence, Olamide Zaccheaus was on the field for 97 percent of the team's snaps in Week 5. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:23 pm

  • Diontae Johnson (back), JuJu (knee) DNP Wednesday
    Diontae Johnson (back) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) also did not practice Wednesday. Johnson was expected to be limited to begin the week, but he still has plenty of time to get ready for Sunday against the Browns. Johnson has already battled various minor injuries dating back to the summer. Chase Claypool is the hot pickup in the Steelers' wideout corps. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:02 pm

  • Jarvis Landry (ribs, hip) sidelined on Wednesday
    Jarvis Landry (ribs, hip) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Landry had a strong game last week against the Colts, catching 4-of-9 targets for 88 yards. The ribs thing is new for Landry, but he's been playing through hip pain all year after undergoing surgery in the offseason. If Landry were to sit, Rashard Higgins would likely pick up extra snaps alongside Odell beckham. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:43 am

  • Laviska Shenault (hamstring) DNP Wednesday
    Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Shenault has battled a hammy issue for a couple weeks now but played through it in Week 5, reeling in 7-of-8 targets for 79 yards. He led the team in targets against the Texans. With D.J. Chark (ankle) looking more doubtful for Week 6, Shenault could be in line for a bigger role, assuming he gets the green light. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:27 am

  • Breshad Perriman (ankle) returns to practice
    Breshad Perriman (ankle) is practicing on a limited basis Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first time Perriman has practiced in the last two weeks. Coach Adam Gase "sounded hopeful" that Perriman returns Sunday. Perriman would likely need to get in a full practice to play. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:23 am

  • D.J. Chark (ankle) opens week with missed practice
    D.J. Chark (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Chark limped off in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss. The missed practice is a bad sign for his Week 6 status. Chark will need to get in at least a limited practice by Friday to have a chance to play this week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 am

  • Dawson Knox (calf) quiet before leaving Week 5
    Dawson Knox (calf) left Week 5's game against the Titans.

    Advice: Knox was quiet before leaving, catching 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards. He had a drop in the middle of the field, as well. The Bills' passing offense has surprised many, but it hasn't translated down to box score production for Knox. He's the No. 5 target with Buffalo using a fourth receiver and their running backs in the passing game. Knox is unlikely to be an every-week TE2 in 2020. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:53 pm

  • Jonnu Smith scores twice in 42-16 win vs. Buffalo
    Jonnu Smith caught 5-of-7 targets for 40 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' Week 5 win over the Bills.

    Advice: A tough matchup on paper became easier when Bills LB Matt Milano was ruled out. Smith was left wide open on multiple occasions, including his second touchdown when he broke free after Ryan Tannehill scrambled out of the pocket. Smith managers should be thankful that play counted because it appeared that Tannehill had passed the line of scrimmage. Either way, Smith looks like one of the most physically dominant tight ends in football right now. If Corey Davis and Adam Humphries miss another game (COVID-19), Smith's floor and ceiling are raised to mid-range TE1 levels.  Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 pm

  • Diontae Johnson (back) to be limited at practice
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Diontae Johnson (back) will begin the week limited at practice.

    Advice: Johnson's participation throughout the week will determine whether or not he's available on Sunday, though it doesn't sound like his injury is too serious. With 15 targets the past two games, Chase Claypool's usage alongside Johnson is still to be determined (and in limbo given Johnson's status). Claypool remains a commodity on waiver wires since it's still possible Johnson sits in Week 6. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:02 am
