  • Reich calls Campbell's foot injury 'significant'
    Colts coach Frank Reich called Parris Campbell's foot injury "significant" and added, "he is going to miss some time."

    Advice: Reich didn't have a timetable for Campbell's return and was unable to rule out it being a season-ending injury. It's a tragedy for the third-year receiver who has been unable to stay healthy throughout his time in the NFL. Campbell has 14 games to his name through nearly two and a half seasons. He was coming off his best game of the year, a four-catch outing in Week 5, before injuring his foot versus the Texans. Zach Pascal will step in as the team's No. 3 receiver with Campbell out indefinitely.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 39 minutes ago

  • Lance (knee) absent from practice Monday
    Trey Lance (knee) did not participate in Monday's practice.

    Advice: Lance suffered the knee injury in Week 5 and got a bye week's worth of rest in before practice. Still bothered by the issue, reporters didn't spot him at practice on Monday. Jimmy Garoppolo returned and didn't look hampered by his calf injury which means he should be able to draw the start versus Indianaoplis. If Lance is sidelined for Week 7, Nate Sudfeld would remain the team's backup quarterback.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:41 am

  • Garoppolo (calf) practicing, Lance (knee) absent
    Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) returned to practice Monday.

    Advice: Garoppolo was sidelined for the 49ers' Week 5 outing with the Cardinals and then rested up during San Francisco's Week 6 bye. Barring any setbacks, it appears he'll be able to play versus the Colts this week. Trey Lance is dealing with a knee sprain and was not spotted at practice. If he is unable to back up Garoppolo, Nate Sudfeld will serve as the 49ers' QB2 for a second time this year. The return of Garoppolo will give the passing game a boost and keep Deebo Samuel, who is averaging 109.6 receiving yards per game this year, in the WR1 conversation. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:38 am

  • Michael Thomas (ankle) still 'a couple weeks away'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Michael Thomas (ankle, PUP list) is still "a couple weeks away."

    Advice: Thomas is eligible to return now but it sounds like a Week 8 or Week 9 debut is in the cards. He was out for the entire offseason after undergoing ankle surgery on the same ankle that held him out of much of the 2020 season. The Saints' passing attack has been anemic without Thomas. They are 31st in the NFL in passing yards per game and have been unable to find consistent receiving production from anyone, including Alvin Kamara. Thomas will return to a massive target share WR2 numbers at minimum once healthy.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:29 am

  • Jeudy 'less than 50 percent' chance to play Week 7
    Broncos coach Vic Fangio said the chances of Jerry Jeudy (ankle) playing in Week 7 against the Browns "are less than 50 percent."

    Advice: Jeudy was designed to return from injured reserve a day before the Broncos' Week 6 game, but that still gives him 21 days to be officially activated. The most recent report on him was that a Week 8 return was the team's target. Denver gets a short turnaround this week as they'll square off with Cleveland on Thursday, all but ensuring that he'll remain sidelined. Courtland Sutton has seen double-digit targets in three of his previous five games and projects for a monstrous role versus the Browns this week. He's a must-start WR2 until Jeudy returns.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:11 am

    Russell Gage (ankle) returned to practice Monday.

    Advice: Monday practices are typically pretty light so his status will still need monitoring throughout the week. Still, it's a good sign that he has a shot to suit up versus the Dolphins this week. Gage has been sidelined since Week 2. He was held without a catch in Atlanta's opener but "rebounded" with a 5-28 line the next week. Gage remains off the fantasy radar for now as the Falcons' offense has turned out to be considerably less exciting than expected, save for a slew of Cordarrelle Patterson touchdowns.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:00 am

  • Carroll says Rashaad Penny (calf) will come off IR
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (calf) will be activated from injured reserve this week. 

    Advice: The fact that Penny will only have been on injured reserve for the minimum of three weeks is a promising sign that he's near full health, a rare statement for the oft-injured runner. The Seahawks are already down Chris Carson, who is on injured reserve with a neck injury. Alex Collins started in Week 6 but is now questionable with hip and glute issues. Penny would return to the starting role if Carroll's optimism about his health is correct. Penny is worth stashing in all fantasy leagues as a potential RB2 if Collins is unable to play this week.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 10:54 am

    Texans coach David Culley said Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is day-to-day and did not know if he would be activated from injured reserve this week.

    Advice: Taylor exited Houston's Week 2 game with the Browns after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain and has been out ever since. He was put on IR shortly after suffering the injury. Taylor may still be a week out from returning and Culley noted that his activity would be ramped up instead of throwing him back into the action immediately. For now, Davis Mills remains the team's starter. Mills has six interceptions and 12 sacks in four starts. It's difficult to consider starting him even in Superflex and 2QB leagues.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 10:43 am

  • Carroll: Seahawks reached out to Cam Newton
    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team has reached out to Cam Newton. 

    Advice: "We’re talking to everybody that could help us,” Carroll said when asked if the team had contacted Newton following Russell Wilson's Week 5 finger injury. Wilson is expected to miss the next month or so, at which points the Seahawks' 2021 season could effectively be over. Geno Smith, who threw for 209 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Steelers, is probably a superior option to late-career Newton. Cam starting for Seattle would represent a marked downgrade for Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:57 am

  • Carroll doesn't rule out Collins (hip) for Week 7
    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Alex Collins (hip, glute) has a chance to play in Week 7 against the Saints. 

    Advice: Collins was again the team's workhorse back in Week 6 with Chris Carson (neck) sidelined, handling 20 touches for 101 yards against Pittsburgh. He left late in the game with the hip/glute issue, which will certainly limit him in practice throughout the week and could sideline him against New Orleans. In other Seattle backfield injury news, Carroll said Rashaad Penny (calf) will return from injured reserve this week. Penny could function as the team's lead back this week if Carson and Collins are out. He should be rostered in most 12-team formats.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:52 am

  • Calvin Ridley returns after one-game absence
    Calvin Ridley returned to the Falcons after missing Week 5 due to a personal matter. 

    Advice: Coming off a bye, Ridley will play this week against the Dolphins on two weeks' rest. Ridley hasn't seen the downfield opportunities that made him so valuable in fantasy last season, but he was still dominating Atlanta's target share (27 percent) and air yards share (47 percent) before missing the team's Week 5 win against the Jets. Ridley should be considered a high-end WR2 this week against Miami.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:49 am

  • Rivera: Gibson underwent MRI on injured shin
    Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Antonio Gibson underwent an MRI on his injured shin. 

    Advice: Gibson was sidelined during the fourth quarter of the Football Team's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs. He spent much of the game cycling in and out of the lineup, riding the stationary bike and getting treatment for his injured shin. Gibson drafters should emotionally prepare themselves for an absence. How long that absence will be is anyone's guess in a seemingly lost season for Washington. Jaret Patterson, who would likely handle most early-down touches in Gibson's absence, should be a top waiver add this week.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:39 am

  • Van Jefferson: Three catches, 19 yards vs. NYG
    Van Jefferson caught 3-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Rams' Week 6 win against the Giants. 

    Advice: A nice start to the season has fizzled for Jefferson, who's now splitting the downfield pass-catching role with DeSean Jackson. In Week 6, Jefferson ran 24 pass routes to Jackson's nine routes. Jackson caught his lone target for six yards. Neither Jefferson nor Jackson will be anything close to reliable fantasy plays unless Cooper Kupp or Robert Woods miss time in 2021.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:34 am

  • Rhule: 'Redefine' CAR offense, establish the run
    Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said he wants to "redefine who we are" on offense, including a commitment to establishing the run. 

    Advice: Rhule seems done with the idea of a Sam Darnold-centric offense following a horrific three-week stretch in which Darnold has thrown four touchdowns and six interceptions. He completed a disastrous 41.7 percent of his attempts in Carolina's Week 6 loss to the Vikings, averaging a miserable five yards per attempt. The desire to establish the run is usually easier than the execution, as many teams are rarely in position to bleed the clock with a three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offensive approach. Expect Chuba Hubbard to get every shot to run the rock for as long as Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is out, and look for Carolina's passing production to wane if the team is able to create neutral and positive game script. Hubbard has 61 touches in three starts this season. He could be the most valuable waiver add of 2021.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:15 am

  • Kareem Hunt (calf) likely headed to short-term IR
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kareem Hunt (calf) is expected to miss "several weeks" and could land on injured reserve. 

    Advice: Rapoport added that Hunt -- who hurt his calf near the end of the Browns' Week 6 loss to Arizona -- could be sidelined for up to six weeks, putting his return sometime around Thanksgiving. The loss of Hunt in a season circling the drain is a outsized loss for the Browns, who were without Nick Chubb (calf) in their Week 6 blowout loss. Chubb, when fully healthy, could see an uptick in snaps and touches with Hunt sidelined. In Week 7 against Denver, D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton could lead the Cleveland backfield. Felton is only viable in PPR formats.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:01 am

  • Michael Thomas eligible to return this week
    ESPN's Field Yates reports Michael Thomas (ankle) is eligible to return from the PUP list this week. 

    Advice: Thomas has missed the Saints' first five games following surgery on the ankle that kept him sidelined for much of the 2020 season. His return can't come soon enough for a New Orleans offense devoid of pass-catching talent outside Alvin Kamara. Without Thomas, the Saints have operated one of the run heaviest offenses in the NFL, registering a 55 percent rush rate through five games. Thomas' return would likely mean a more balanced offense, and Thomas would instantly become a target hog in games where Sean Payton can't grind it out on the ground. Thomas will instantly become a WR2 upon his return. New Orleans plays Seattle in Week 7.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:40 am

  • Alex Collins tops 100-yard mark in SNF loss
    Alex Collins rushed 20 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, adding one catch for -3 yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Collins didn't get much going in the first half – and neither did the rest of Seattle's offense – but he was productive in the second half, spearheading two successful touchdown drives to get the Seahawks back in the game. With Chris Carson on IR, Collins will headline this backfield for the next two games at least, although Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas steal enough passing-down looks to meaningfully harm Collins' ceiling. He's a flex option against a stingy Saints run defense in Week 7. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm

  • Kareem Hunt suffered a calf injury, will get MRI
    Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Kareem Hunt injured his calf in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals and will undergo an MRI.

    Advice: The good news is that Hunt didn't suffer an Achilles' injury. He went down to a non-contact injury in his lower leg that had all of the trappings of a torn Achilles' but that doesn't appear to be the case right now. Hunt was ruled out shortly after leaving and was unable to put any weight on his leg. He logged 17 touches for 78 yards before exiting. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see him in Week 7 as the Browns are back on the field in four days for Thursday Night Football. Demetric Felton and D'Ernest Johnson are the next men up if Nick Chubb, who is dealing with a calf injury, remains out for the Browns' date with Denver. The split between those two is entirely up in the air. Johnson is a plodding runner while Felton profiles as a gadget player.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Kareem Hunt (leg) helped off the field vs. Arizona
    Kareem Hunt (calf) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Browns' Week 6 game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: It was a non-contact calf injury that immediately sidelined him for the remainder of the day. The initial fear will be that he suffered a serious Achilles' injury. Hunt was carted to the locker room after being helped off the field by trainers. He was unable to put any weight on the injured leg. With Nick Chubb inactive, D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton will split the running back duties to close the day.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:46 pm

  • Gibson (shin) gains 44 yards on 12 touches vs. KC
    Antonio Gibson had ten rushes for 44 yards in the Football Team's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs, adding two catches for zero yards. 

    Advice: The main takeaway from Gibson's Week 6 outing was his continuing struggles with a shin injury that's hobbled him for weeks. It would hardly be surprising if the Football Team rested their stud back next week against the Packers, or perhaps for a couple weeks until he gets right. Gibson saw his usual role in Week 6 against the Chiefs, taking most early-down carries and receptions and ceding backfield work to J.D. McKissic during two-minutes drills and on most third downs. Gibson's Week 7 practice status will be among the most closely watched.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:40 pm

  • Hubbard handles 17-of-18 RB touches in third start
    Chuba Hubbard rushed 16 times for 61 yards and one score, catching 1-of-3 targets for four receiving yards in Carolina's Week 6 overtime loss to Minnesota.

    Advice: With third-down back Rodney Smith waived mid-week, Hubbard predictably handled 17 of Carolina's 18 backfield touches including all three of team's running back targets. His first career touchdown should partly be attributed to Justin Jefferson, who fumbled inside the 20-yard line to gift the enemy a short field in the first quarter. With Smith out the picture, Hubbard has notably handled 40-of-44 carries and 46-of-51 touches among the Panthers' backfield the past two weeks. He'll continue to rank as a touch-based RB2 in place of Christian McCaffrey (hamstring, IR) moving forward and, in particular, in Week 8 against the Giants.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:57 pm

    Advice: Stefanski added, "I don't want to kill Kareem." Hunt is dealing with multiple injuries but the Browns are already down Nick Chubb, so they won't have much choice but to let him handle the bulk of the running back touches. To this point, Pelissero added that he will still get more work than usual.

His return from a Week 1 high ankle sprain could come as soon as next Thursday against the Browns, however optimistic that might be. Jeudy had six receptions for 72 yards before his opening day injury, operating as Denver's No. 1 wideout.

  • Kareem Hunt officially questionable for Week 6
    Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) is questionable for Week 6 against the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Hunt finally got in a "limited" practice on Friday after Wednesday/Thursday DNPs, but he seems ready to carry the load in Nick Chubb's absence, who was officially declared out Friday. Hunt was already flirting with RB1 value, and will now be a locked-in RB1 vs. a Cardinals defense that hemorrhages production on the ground. Potential bad weather could also make for a run-friendly environment. The concern, of course, is Hunt's health. He was not on the Week 5 injury report, so this isn't something he had previously been playing through. Hybrid rookie slasher Demetric Felton and veteran third-down back D'Ernest Johnson will be the next men up behind Hunt.

Hunt has not missed a game since signing with the Browns, notably, and if this is minor, he should have a good chance to suit up.

  • Kareem Hunt totals 99 yards, 2 TDs in Week 5 loss
    Kareem Hunt rushed 12 times for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the Browns' Week 5 loss to the Chargers, adding five catches for 28 yards on six targets.

    Advice: Hunt has double-digit carries in four straight games after registering six in the opener. He's also scored in three straight games and has found the end zone in 4-of-5 games to date. Hunt is also getting a lot of work near the goal line through five weeks and scored from three and eight yards out in this one. Nick Chubb still out-carried Hunt 21-12, but Hunt out-targeted him 6-1. With the passing work on his side and the Browns unafraid to feature Hunt at the goal line, Hunt is a high-end RB2 every week in this run-first offense. Hunt gets a date with the high-flying Cardinals in Week 6. NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 4:45 pm

  • Trey Lance battered by Arizona in scoreless start
    Trey Lance completed 15-of-29 passes for 192 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in the 49ers' 17-10, Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, adding 16 carries for 89 additional yards. 

    Advice: Making his first career start, the No. 3 overall pick got absolutely battered by a swarming, incessant Cardinals front even though he officially only took two sacks. Whether as a runner or passer, Lance was getting walloped practically every play, and was lucky to escape the game standing. No hit was bigger than the fourth down shot Lance took from the Cardinals' one-yard line in the second quarter. Lance was seemingly already in the end zone when he got blown up by Isaiah Simmons. The defender was injured on the play, but Lance thankfully stayed in. The two overarching takeaways were Lance's rushing production and passing inaccuracy. With the former, he arguably exceeded expectations, easily leading the 49ers in both carries and output. With the latter, he was as shaky as feared, displaying little touch or accuracy as he routinely sailed balls high. He didn't look like someone the Niners were ready to let run away with the starting gig. There is probably a strong chance it will be Jimmy Garoppolo under center for Week 7 against the Colts if he can shake his calf injury following the 49ers' bye.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 4:30 pm

  • Antonio Gibson scores twice on 22 touches vs. NO
    Antonio Gibson had 20 rushes for 60 yards and two touchdowns in Washington's Week 5 loss to the Saints, adding two receptions for 12 yards. 

    Advice: Gibson's inefficient outing looks a whole lot better with two short tumbles in the end zone paint. Washington largely abandoned any pretense of a balanced offense in the fourth quarter, limiting Gibson's carries. J.D. McKissic again out-targeted Gibson (four to two) as Washington's running back in two-minute drills and most third downs. Gibson's short yardage usage -- including near the end zone -- should give him a sturdy weekly floor in every matchup, including next week against Kansas City.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 1:45 pm

  • Hubbard totals 134 yards on 29 touches in Week 5
    Chuba Hubbard rushed 24 times for 101 yards in the Panthers' Week 5 loss to the Eagles, adding five receptions for 33 yards.

    Advice: After giving up receiving duties to Rodney Smith last week, Hubbard dominated the backfield work for Carolina this time around. Smith did not earn a touch while Royce Freeman totaled four yards on four touches. Hubbard tied Robby Anderson for second on the team in targets. Despite Hubbard failing to find the end zone, this was the performance he needed to have to be worth stashing as Christian McCaffrey's backup. McCaffrey is expected to return next week so Hubbard can be put back on the fantasy bench. Still, with 29 touches in a losing effort, Hubbard is clearly the workhorse fantasy managers hoped he would be in the event of a McCaffrey injury.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 1:32 pm

  • Jimmy Garoppolo leads 49ers' Week 5 inactives
    49ers declared QB Jimmy Garoppolo, WR Jauan Jennings, CB K’Waun Williams, CB Ambry Thomas, CB Buster Skrine, OL Aaron Banks and DL Zach Kerr inactive for Week 5 against the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Garoppolo made the trip to Arizona but isn't ready to go. He is giving No. 3 overall pick an opportunity to run with the starting job, but the 49ers' coaching staff has insisted Garoppolo remains the starter when healthy. Jimmy G can ask Andy Dalton about that.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 12:05 pm

  • Calvin Ridley officially ruled out
    Falcons declared WR Calvin Ridley, WR Russell Gage, DL Marlon Davidson, S Erik Harris, CB Avery Williams, QB Feleipe Franks and DL John Cominsky inactive for Week 5 against the Jets.

    Advice: Ridley was ruled out earlier in the week with a personal issue. With Russell Gage also out, Tajae Sharp and Olamide Zaccheaus are expected to start in two-receiver sets. Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson should be heavily involved in the Falcons' game plan versus a week Jets defense. Both players are obvious starts in all fantasy formats.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 10, 5:05 am

  • It's time: Trey Lance named starter for Week 5
    49ers QB Trey Lance was named the starting quarterback for Week 5 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: With Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) officially ruled out, Lance will become the fourth-youngest quarterback in the Super Bowl era to make his first career start. George Kittle's (calf, doubtful) absence is concerning since the 27-year-old is graded as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 pass-blocking tight end this year, but Trent Williams' full bill of health in practice should mask that. With seven carries in 30 minutes during last week's loss to Seattle, Lance's rushing floor as a low-end QB1 offsets the volatility of his (potential) inaccuracy if he struggles through the air. Note that this total (49) against the Cardinals has plummeted a full 4.5 points since initially opening at 53.5 on PointsBet. NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 8, 1:25 pm

  • Alex Collins plays 71% of snaps with Carson out
    Alex Collins played 71 percent of the Seahawks' offensive snaps in Week 5 against the Rams. 

    Advice: It's notable that Collins managed a hefty share of the snaps with Chris Carson (neck) sidelined even though Seattle was in catchup mode in the fourth quarter. Collins -- who ran a route on 58 percent of Seattle's drop backs -- salvaged his PPR fantasy day with two late receptions for 25 yards to go along with his 15 carries for 47 yards. Though DeeJay Dallas ate into Collins' pass catching work, it's clear Collins is something close to a workhorse when Carson is sidelined. Carson has ten days to get right before the Seahawks take on the Steelers in Week 6.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 8, 9:23 am

  • Van Jefferson held to one catch in Seattle
    Van Jefferson caught 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Rams' Week 5 win over the Seahawks. 

    Advice: With Robert Woods finally revived for 14 targets behind Cooper Kupp's 10, there wasn't much work for Jefferson and DeSean Jackson to go around. It was D-Jax who made the Rams' big stretch play of the week, embarrassing Jamal Adams for a 68-yard grab before running out of gas on what might have been an 80-yard touchdown. Jefferson has cleared 80 yards twice in five contests and been held under 20 twice. There won't be much rhyme or reason to has WR5 success.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 7, 9:34 pm

  • Alex Collins totals 72 yards in place of Carson
    Alex Collins rushed 15 times for 47 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 loss to the Rams, adding two receptions for 25 additional yards. 

    Advice: It was a less than sterling spot start in place of Chris Carson (neck), if not an outright disaster. Collins ceded eight touches to reserves DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer and never got a shot at a goal-line carry with each of the Seahawks' touchdowns coming from distance. Collins probably showed just enough to get another RB2/FLEX crack at it if Carson can't go for Week 6 against the Steelers. That will be especially true if Russell Wilson (finger) is sidelined, forcing the Seahawks to lean more heavily on their rushing attack.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Oct 7, 9:03 pm
