Kelvin Benjamin expected to play

Injury Returned to practice Friday

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin has been listed as questionable after missing practice the first two days of the week with a knee injury. That listing suggests Benjamin’s status is up in the air, but coach Ron Rivera said, via Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, that Benjamin is expected to play. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today’s Take: Benjamin got hit on the knee last week causing a contusion on his knee. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned Friday and is expected to play. He’ll be on the WR2 radar for Week 7 against the Bears.

DeVante Parker feeling better

Injury Missed Week 6 with ankle injury

By all appearances, DeVante Parker’s injured ankle is making real progress. He strolled through the Dolphins locker room earlier this week with no sign of a limp or a walking boot. And while he has yet to practice this week, the Dolphins had not ruled him out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. “He is feeling much better,” a source told the Miami Herald. That source would not speculate on whether Parker had progressed to the point where will play Sunday. (Miami Herald)

FF Today’s Take: Parker took advantage of garbage time in Week 3 to post a 8-76-1 line against the Jets. In the three games in which he started and finished this year, he’s posted at least 12.9 points in PPR and attracted at least eight targets each time. Ideally, owners can play the wait-and-see game with him if he goes this week before using him as a WR2/WR3 in Week 8 against Baltimore.

Kelvin Benjamin’s Week 7 status in doubt

Injury Team reportedly a "little concerned" about swelling in knee

Kelvin Benjamin‘s knee has swelled up after taking a shot in (Week 6). HC Ron Rivera said the team is a “little concerned.” Same knee as before. (AP – Steve Reed)

FF Today’s Take: Benjamin sported a huge bruise on the outside of his left knee late last week, but he returned for a few snaps and ultimately enjoyed his finest game of the season. It is unknown whether that bruise is the issue or if this is related to his Week 3 left knee injury in which he was pulled down backwards. He did not miss a game with that injury, but it sounds as if owners should not plan on having KB available this week, leaving Devin Funchess as a potential low-end RB2 against the Bears.

No practice again for Stefon Diggs

Injury Has missed last five practices with groin injury

Vikings listed Stefon Diggs as DNP again. (USA Today)

FF Today’s Take: Diggs was in uniform Thursday but did not do much, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Owners should prepare to be without him again in Week 7. Since the Vikings’ bye comes in Week 9, they could sit him next week as well. Throughout his two-plus year NFL career, Diggs has been significantly better in games in which he managed to avoid getting listed on the injury report, so keep that in mind moving forward. Adam Thielen should once again be a target hog in Week 7.

DeMarco Murray absent from practice Thursday

Injury Hamstring injury

DeMarco Murray did not practice again today for @Titans with hamstring. Mularkey mentioned Khalfani Muhammad as a potential roster call up if @demarcomurray can’t play for @titans (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: It appears Murray is truly questionable this week against the Browns. If he sits Friday, it will be a good indication that Murray will end up on the Inactive list Sunday. For now, it looks like Derrick Henry will be the Titans RB to play in Week 7.

Winston does very little on Thursday

Injury Shoulder injury

Bucs’ Jameis Winston didn’t look today like a quarterback expecting to play on Sunday. Could test shoulder more Friday, but seems unlikely. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FF Today’s Take: Earlier in the week, the coaching staff noted that Winston likely wouldn’t throw until late in the week. We should get a better indication of Winston’s availability on Friday but Winston owners should have plan B in place. Ryan Fitzpatrick would start against the Bills if Winston sits.

DeVante Parker misses another practice

Injury Ankle injury

Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker and center Mike Pouncey remained absent from practice Thursday but the team is still hopeful one or both might be able to play on Sunday against the New York Jets. If Parker recovers sufficiently the next three days, the Dolphins could potentially just have a package for Parker to limit his exposure to re-injury while still taking advantage of his availability in a limited way. (Miami Herald)

FF Today’s Take: It sounds like Parker is on the wrong side of Questionable this week but we should get a better idea of his status on Friday. If he sits, Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills should be the top two targets for Jay Cutler against the Jets. The represent a neutral matchup against wide receivers.

Luck suffers setback, will not practice

Injury Colts QB experiencing shoulder soreness

The Indianapolis Colts are shutting down their $140 million quarterback, for now, placing Andrew Luck’s 2017 season in doubt. Ten months after he had surgery on his throwing shoulder, and two weeks after he finally returned to the practice field, Luck received a cortisone shot to treat the soreness that has persisted in recent weeks, first-year General Manager Chris Ballard revealed on Wednesday. (Indianapolis Star)

FF Today’s Take: The fact that Luck won’t be able to practice further delays his timeline for return. Jacoby Brissett should continue to start for the foreseeable future. If you’ve been stashing Luck on your bench, it’s time to give consideration to dropping him from your roster.

Fournette, Lee missing practice for Jags

Injury Team hopes to have its rookie tailback available vs. Colts

Leonard Fournette appears to have escaped serious injury after his leg planted in scary fashion in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, but the rookie tailback will likely sit out Wednesday’s practice nonetheless. The Jaguars running back, along with receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and center Brandon Linder (illness), are all unlikely to work out, Jacksonville team site writer John Oehser reported. (NFL.com)

FF Today’s Take: Leonard Fournette has emerged as a legitimate RB1 in his rookie campaign. IT doesn’t appear that the youngster will miss much time but he could be a game-time decision so plan accordingly. Consequently, Chris Ivory is a must own this week with a good chance to see double-digit touches even if Fournette plays. Marqise Lee’s status is up in the air with a knee injury. The Jags wideout would be a flex candidate in a favorable matchup so check back later in the week for an update on his condition.

Jordan Mathews cleared to practice

Injury Returning from thumb surgery

Bills WR Jordan Matthews took another step toward returning to the lineup on Wednesday. Just two weeks removed from thumb surgery, Matthews has been cleared to practice. “He’ll be day to day,” said head coach Sean McDermott. “He did get cleared to practice, so he will be out at practice. He’ll be listed as limited and we’ll just take it one day at a time at this point.” (BuffaloBills.com)

FF Today’s Take: With only ten catches on the year, Jordan Matthews has been a non-factor for fantasy owners this season. The Bills do not offer much to fantasy owners in the passing game but Matthews’ return to the field would be a step in the right direction.
