Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Ellington has been a big part of the team's passing game this season and has 28 receptions and 257 receiving yards in six games. He should be able to play in Week 7 and should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Matt Forte - RB - New York Jets
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Forte rewarded owners who took a chance on him last week in their PPR matchups, catching 8 passes for 59 yards and gaining 22 yards on the ground. Forte's rushing effort left something to be desired, but he'll be a PPR flex candidate again if Bilal Powell misses another week.
Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf) was sidelined at practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: If Powell keeps missing practice this week then he'll likely be headed for a doubtful designation. In such a case, Matt Forte garners flex appeal in PPR leagues. Elijah McGuire can't be trusted after the dud he put up last week when Powell was out.
Robby Anderson - WR - New York Jets
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18
Huddle Up: Anderson saw a season-high 12 targets last week in the Jets' loss to the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, he 'only' turned those 12 targets into four catches for 76 yards. If Anderson can't play or is limited at all then Jermaine Kearse and Jeremy Kerley demand flex attention.
Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Hogan is coming off his worst outing of the season and dealing with a rib injury on top of it. There's still plenty of time between now and Sunday night, though, and he and the Patriots are due for a high-scoring affair with the Atlanta Falcons. Assuming Hogan's health isn't an issue, he'll be in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.
Jeremy Maclin - WR - Baltimore Ravens
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) was able to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, on a limited basis.
Huddle Up: Maclin missed last week's game with a bum wing. He is trendy in the right direction toward playing in Week 7, but circle back around Friday for his official status on the injury report before making a decision on starting him as a WR4 or flex play.
Willie Snead - WR - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Snead didn't play much in his return from a suspension and injury last week. It could take a little more time for him to get back to 100 percent, but he should not be dropped by any means. He can be started as a flex if there are not better plays on your roster, but lower your expectations.
Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Mariota did not suffer any setbacks on Monday against the Colts, although he was not his normal self by staying mostly in the pocket and rarely moving or scrambling. He should have a nice week against a Cleveland Browns pass defense ranking 17th in the NFL with 226.3 yards per game while allowing a league-high 14 touchdown passes.
DeMarco Murray - RB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Head coach Mike Mularkey said earlier in the week that Murray was dealing with soreness, but he said the back is expected to be fine for Week 7.
Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: The severity of Landry's knee, presumably soreness since there haven't been any other official reports, is uncertain. Wait to see how he is listed Thursday and Friday before plugging him into your lineup for Week 7. He has two touchdowns over his past two games, and he is an obvious must-start in PPR fantasy formats when healthy. He has six grabs for 48 yards on seven targets in the first meeting with the Jets back in Week 3.
Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Ajayi was in and out of practice last week and he was able to play, and play well. He has two 100-yard games in five outings, but he posted a season-low 16 yards on 11 rushes in Week 3 against the Jets in the first meeting.
Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Montgomery hasn't been fully supplanted from his starting gig by Aaron Jones, but Jones seems to be the better backfield choice right now. They both lose some value with Aaron Rodgers gone, but Montgomery does deserve a starting spot in a plus matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Newton's limited status has been pretty standard lately, as the team limits wear and tear on his surgically repaired shoulder during the week. Any issues or lingering soreness hasn't kept him from game time, so start him as you normally would.
Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was able to take part in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: McKinnon had a monster game in Week 6 and now he is looking to follow it up with another, picking up the slack of the injured rookie Dalvin Cook. The Ravens rank 30th in the NFL against the run, giving up 141.3 yards per game on the ground, so it could be another banner week for McKinnon.
Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Bradford has so much talent, but he just cannot stay healthy. It appears Case Keenum might be headed for another start in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens, but check back officially on Friday.
Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has developed soreness in his surgically repaired shoulder. He was given a cortisone shot and will rest this week. There is no timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Not too sound too poetic, but UGH. The frustrations with Luck and his long-awaited return will not cease. The good news is that Luck's replacement, Jacoby Brissett, has held his own as the Colts' starter. That being said, Brissett should only be started in quality matchups and/or as a bye-week replacement.
Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, and he was limited as expected.
Huddle Up: Matthews has been cleared to play, but it's still uncertain if he'll suit up to face the Buccaneers in Week 7. Give him at least a game or two to knock off any rust before trusting him again as a WR4 or flex option.
Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) will be active Thursday, Oct. 19, versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: The rookie phenom has been matchup-proof through the first several weeks of his first professional season. He won't have to worry about Charcandrick West stealing touchdowns this week either as West will not be active. Start Hunt as a high-end RB1 per usual.
Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Dalton will be facing a stiff test in Week 7 against the Steelers and their No. 1 ranked pass defense, as Pittsburgh has yielded just 153.5 yards per game with four touchdowns and five interceptions through six games. Dalton looks like he will definitely play, but he is not a recommended fantasy option.
Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Bortles has avoided making an inordinate amount of crucial errors so far this season, but his production is a far cry from what his 2015 campaign gleaned. Keep him on your bench unless he's the last option you have.
