NFL Recent Player News
|10/15/2021||Mike Williams, LAC, WR|
|Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for the Chargers' Week 6 game at Baltimore but has not practiced this week.
Analysis: Williams just burned the Browns for 165 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches last week and is certainly worth starting if active, which could not be the case. If he doesn't play, running back Austin Ekeler and tight end Jared Cook may be more involved in the Chargers' passing game.
|10/15/2021||Khalil Mack, Chi, LB|
|Mack (foot) missed a third straight practice Friday and is listed as questionable for the Bears' Week 6 game against Green Bay.
Analysis: Mack, who's racked up five sacks through the season's first five games, has played despite a questionable tag in each of Chicago's last two games but practiced Friday in each of those weeks. The Bears will need him on field to best slow down Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams.
|10/15/2021||Allen Robinson II, Chi, WR|
|Robinson (ankle) returned to practice Friday after sitting out the previous two days. The Bears have listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Analysis: Friday's return does increase Robinson's chances of being active for Sunday's key NFC North clash. The veteran receiver has gotten off to a slow start with Darnell Mooney taking over the Bears' lead in catches (20) and receiving yards (261).
|10/15/2021||Rodrigo Blankenship, Ind, K|
|The Colts have ruled out Blankenship (hip) for Sunday's game against Houston.
Analysis: Former Charger Michael Badgley will take Blankenship's place. Badgley had a shaky season for Los Angeles in 2020, converting 24 of 33 (72.7 percent) of his field goal attempts and 36 of 39 extra-point tries.
|10/15/2021||Terry McLaurin, Was, WR|
|McLaurin missed Friday's practice with hamstring tightness and is listed questionable for Washington's Week 6 game against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Washington coach Ron Rivera did say McLaurin's absence was precautionary, so the Football Team may have been being extra careful here. McLaurin's 29 catches, 400 receiving yards and three touchdown receptions are all far and away tops among Washington players.
|10/15/2021||Trevon Diggs, Dal, CB|
|Diggs (ankle) missed a second straight practice Thursday and is expected to be a game-time decision for the Cowboys' Week 6 matchup against the Patriots.
Analysis: The second-year cornerback has been stellar this season, having recorded a league-high six interceptions with 10 passes defensed over Dallas' first five games. Diggs' potential absence would be very favorable for Mac Jones' fantasy prospects this week.

|10/14/2021||Jalen Hurts, Phi, QB|

|10/14/2021||Kareem Hunt, Cle, RB|
|Hunt (wrist, knee) is listed as questionable for Cleveland's Week 6 game against Arizona but did return to practice Friday.
Analysis: It's believed Hunt will be active, and he could be ticketed for a major role with backfield mate Nick Chubb ruled out with a calf injury. The Cardinals have surrendered 152.2 rushing yards per game and a poor 5.7 yards per attempt over the last four weeks.
|10/14/2021||Nick Chubb, Cle, RB|
|Chubb has been ruled out for the Browns' Week 6 game against the Cardinals with a calf injury.
Analysis: Kareem Hunt (wrist/knee) did return to practice Friday and will have real RB1 potential with Chubb inactive. The Cardinals have surrendered 152.2 rushing yards per game and a poor 5.7 yards per attempt over the last four weeks.
|10/14/2021||Damien Williams, Chi, RB|
|Williams has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Bears' Week 6 game against the Packers.
Analysis: Williams got the start in Week 5 with David Montgomery sidelined, rushing 16 times for 64 yards with a TD. Rookie Khalil Herbert added 75 yards on 18 carries in that win over the Raiders and is now in line for a significant role in Sunday's contest.
