Patrick Onwuasor (LB - BAL)
2h
Player Note on Patrick Onwuasor (LB - BAL)
It appears that Onwuasor (ankle) will be a game time decision. He barely practiced this week and hasn't been much of a fantasy factor when on the field. It's advisable to sit him this week.
Ezekiel Ansah (DE - SEA)
2h
Player Note on Ezekiel Ansah (DE - SEA)
The duo of Jadeveon Clowney and Ansah was supposed to be a potent edge rushing combination. It has not been clicking through their first four games together. They have combined for 16 total tackles and two sacks. Last week, Ansag salvaged his day with a forced as well as recovered fumble. Hopefully, they will begin to compliment each other soon. Not surprisingly, Ansah is questionable this week as he deals with an ankle injury. Avoid.
Bradley McDougald (S - SEA)
2h
Player Note on Bradley McDougald (S - SEA)
There is a good chance that McDougald sits out Week 7. He has not practiced all week due to back spasms. If he is out, it appears Marquise Blair would bet the start. This is a hands off situation.
Melvin Ingram (DE - LAC)
4h
Player Note on Melvin Ingram (DE - LAC)
This may be a pie in the sky ranking as Ingram is still dealing with a hamstring injury. However, if he manages to get in a little practice time this week, the matchup is too good to pass on. Even on limited snaps, he would be a threat to rack up a sack against a porous Titans' offensive line. We'll keep our eyes on practice reports out of Los Angeles. As of Friday Ingram has been listed as doubtful for Week 7.
Nathan Gerry (S - PHI)
6h
Player Note on Nathan Gerry (S - PHI)
Gerry saw a season high 62 snaps last week due to Nigel Bradham suffering an ankle injury. The stat line was a modest 4/2/6 but he could be in for an expanded role in Week 7. Bradham (ankle) is iffy at best and Zach Brown was released this week. Let's keep an eye on Gerry this week in a division matchup with the Cowboys.
Roquan Smith (LB - CHI)
1d
Player Note on Roquan Smith (LB - CHI)
After missing a game due to personal reasons, Smith looked like his old self when he returned, finishing Week 5 with nine solo tackles. Coming off the bye week, look for the youngster to once again be a dominant IDP force. He faces a Saints' offense that has allowed 145 total tackles, and nine big plays to opposing LBs.
Leighton Vander Esch (LB - DAL)
1d
Player Note on Leighton Vander Esch (LB - DAL)
The Cowboys' defense has been not been using Vander Esch in a three down role of late. Last week he played just 77% of the snaps, which is a season low. They have been playing veteran Sean Lee more as he saw a season high 60% of the snaps last week. It could be due to the illness he dealt with a couple weeks back but it's definitely puzzling. Let's see how things shake out this week and continue to start him in the mean time.
Quandre Diggs (S - DET)
1d
Player Note on Quandre Diggs (S - DET)
The Lions could be without Diggs, who missed Monday night against Green Bay, once again in Week 7. He continues to deal with a hamstring injury that he suffered prior the the Week 6 bye. He is practicing on a limited basis so we are in a wait and see mode.
Blake Martinez (LB - GB)
1d
Player Note on Blake Martinez (LB - GB)
Never fear. After putting up as season low five total tackles against Detroit last week, all is fine with Martinez. He has a great matchup this week against a Raiders' offense that has allowed 61 total tackles and three big plays to opposing LBs in the last two games. He remains a top-10 LB in balanced scoring formats.
Zach Cunningham (LB - HOU)
1d
Player Note on Zach Cunningham (LB - HOU)
The recent dip in production for Cunningham could be due to a knee issue that he has been dealing with. He has just 11 total tackles in the past two weeks. Far below the pace he usually sets. He's practicing on a limited basis and we'll need to keep an eye on his status for Week 7.
