Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is not expected to report this week, according to a source. The Steelers are on a bye this week, but Bell could report Monday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: James Conner will continue to be featured in Pittsburgh's backfield as long as Bell stays away. If you haven't traded Bell by now, the best you can do is keep him on your bench and hope he returns soon.
Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) was able to some running Monday, Oct. 15, and looked good, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Fournette's status for Week 7 is uncertain, so owners should monitor his practice participation during the week. He is a No. 1 fantasy running back when healthy, but T.J. Yeldon will continue to start if Fournette misses another game.
Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament that could cause him to miss some time, according to a source.
Huddle Up: If Kupp is out for a few games then Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods will see even more targets. His absence would also open the door for guys like Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett to see more targets. Look for updates on Kupp's timetable.
George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is expected to play against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Oct. 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Kittle owners can leave him in starting lineups. Look for him to be heavily involved as long as the 49ers are comfortable with him not aggravating his injury.
Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will be the team's starting quarterback once he returns from his injury, according to head coach Adam Gase. Gase said he believes Tannehill will be able to play again this season.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Tannehill will be able to return to the lineup. Brock Osweiler likely will be the starting quarterback while Tannehill is sidelined and could be a possible bye week replacement for desperate owners in Week 7.
DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quadriceps) was limited to only four snaps during the team's Week 6 game because he is stilling dealing with an injury, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Huddle Up: Parker has struggled with injuries this season and may be questionable for Week 7, so owners should keep an eye on his practice participation. He probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he is recovered from his quadriceps injury.
Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) will miss three to four weeks with a high-ankle sprain, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jermaine Kearse is the primary beneficiary in Enunwa's absence, as he showed in Week 6. Kearse caught nine of 10 targets for 94 yards. Add him if he's on waivers.
Matt Breida - RB - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) appears ready to play Monday, Oct. 15, against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: The 49ers could choose to give Breida a lighter load with Alfred Morris receiving more touches in his complementary role. Even so, Breida holds PPR RB2 upside in a game in which the 49ers may pass heavily.
Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (arm) is expected to start next week despite suffering a left arm injury in Week 6. Carr was sacked six times and sustained numerous other hits during a drubbing to the Seattle Seahawks in London.
Huddle Up: Carr and the Raiders are floundering in Jon Gruden's first year back with the club. The whole organization needs the upcoming bye week in a big way in hopes of getting back on track. View Carr as a backup fantasy quarterback until further notice.
Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is considered week-to-week with an elbow injury, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: A week-to-week status usually means a player won't be playing the next game, but we'll see. In any case, you're not starting Nathan Peterman anywhere if he is indeed named the Week 7 starter.
Jamison Crowder - WR - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) isn't expected to resume practicing until at least Friday, Oct. 19, at the earliest, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: It means Crowder is a poor bet to suit up in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. With only 13 catches and 134 yards in the four games he's played in so far, owners are justified in cutting bait with him. While he will have huge PPR potential the moment Chris Thompson and/or Jordan Reed get hurt, Alex Smith is not making any Washington receiver a big enough part of the offense at the moment.
Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) is not expected to play in Week 7 versus the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: The Falcons are likely looking ahead to their Week 8 bye to give their top running back some more recovery time, but the fact they're already considering him unlikely for Week 7 isn't the greatest of news. It likely means another heavy dose of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith, although only Coleman should be trusted as an RB2 in lineups.
Randall Cobb - WR - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are not expected to be active against the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: It's logical for the Packers to hold their key wide receivers out of a game they can win without them. Hamstrings can be tricky and there's no point in risking aggravation in an otherwise winnable contest. The absences of Cobb and Allison make Marquez Valdes-Scantling an attractive WR3 or flex candidate.
Nick Chubb - RB - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb ran for 25 yards on three carries in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, and head coach Hue Jackson suggested for the second time in three weeks that Chubb needs to get more carries.
Huddle Up: Forgive owners for experiencing deja vu here, but Chubb has seen no more than three carries in any of his first six games, including in each of the past two weeks since he rushed for 105 yards and two scores against the Oakland Raiders. The rookie will almost certainly begin to see more work soon, but it's fair to wonder if it will be enough for regular fantasy relevancy. Owners need to hold onto Chubb, however, as Carlos Hyde doesn't have the greatest track record of staying healthy.
Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (ankle) is not expected to be fine to play in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: Mayfield had a rough go of things in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but the schedule eases up over the next month, beginning this week versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The rookie's biggest issue at the moment is having enough healthy receivers to take advantage. Nevertheless, Mayfield should be a capable streaming option at the very least.
Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain, although head coach Todd Bowles told reporters Monday, Oct. 15, he was unsure of the severity.
Huddle Up: It's been a rough few weeks for Enunwa, who was on the Week 5 injury report with a hip injury. He was then spotted wearing a brace on his hand during that contest in which he dropped a quick screen and just had a potential touchdown glance off his fingertips. He then got hurt in Week 6 on a first-half quick screen when he was stripped of the ball, leaving his owners with another poor fantasy effort. Given how little weight he could put on his leg following the injury, owners could be looking at a multiple-week injury.
Calvin Ridley - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) is believed to have suffered a bone bruise on his left ankle after an MRI came back 'pretty clean' Monday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Despite what appears to be a minor injury and the distinct possibility he could be ready to play in Week 7, there is already speculation the Falcons will sit him and give him the Week 8 bye in order to fully heal. Stay tuned, but Julio Jones would seem to be the most likely to benefit in terms of seeing more targets - especially in the red zone - if the rookie is inactive.
D'Onta Foreman - RB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is not expected to be activated in Week 7 to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Recent reports had Foreman returning to the field as soon as he was eligible to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list, but it was never all that likely he was going to make his season debut this week. While Houston's offensive line shoulders some of the blame, neither Lamar Miller (3.7 yards per carry) nor Alfred Blue (3.4) is getting the job done. Foreman should be stashed in most leagues by now and could enter the flex conversation immediately if he proves his health upon return.
Ryan Tannehill - QB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is day-to-day with the shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 6 versus the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Adam Gase.
Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's nine offensive touches in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins were a byproduct of the team's several explosive plays in that game and not a reduced role, according to head coach Sean Payton, who expects more balance between Kamara and Mark Ingram going forward.
Huddle Up: Kamara's reduced role in Week 5 sent quite a few owners into a bit of a panic, but the expectation moving forward should be that he sees a few more touches in every game than Ingram. The second-year back should have little issue performing at an RB1 level the rest of the way, so owners should leave him locked into lineups for the remainder of the season.
