Fantasy Impact: Bell was out of practice squad call-ups, so this move is notable. Latavius Murray suffered an ankle injury in Week 6, which could give Bell an increased role in Week 7 against the Bengals.

The Saints designated WR Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) to return from injured reserve. (Source: Nick Underhill on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This activates Smith's 21-day practice window. Michael Thomas is still a couple of weeks away, so this is certainly good news for the Saints. As of now, however, Smith isn't a recommended fantasy stash outside of deeper formats.

Fantasy Impact: After being ruled inactive over the past few weeks, the Colts have decided to waive rookie draft pick, Jacob Eason.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) expects to play on Thursday night against the Broncos. (Source: Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "It's my decision. I get to say whether I play or not and that's just how it is," Mayfield told reporters on Tuesday. His left shoulder surgery reportedly isn't season-ending, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be while playing through it. Case Keenum is the team's backup if Mayfield is forced to miss any time this year.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, the Ravens injury woes continue as their star OT is out for the season. The Ravens played just fine without him on Sunday, though, in a 34-6 victory over a young Chargers team. Stanley hopes to be fully ready going into the 2022 season.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) has been ruled out for Thursday's Week 7 game against the Broncos. (Source: Nate Ulrich on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kareem Hunt (calf) was placed on IR on Tuesday, which means D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton will carry the load against Denver. Johnson profiles as the early-down grinder with Felton mixes in as more of a receiving back. Both backup RBs will be popular waiver wire targets this week. As for Chubb, he could be in store for career-best usage once he's healthy again, given Hunt's recent trip to IR.

Fantasy Impact: As expected. Hunt will miss a minimum of three games, though his absence could extended to a month or more depending on how his rehab goes. Nick Chubb is also dealing with his own calf injury, which means the Browns will be forced to rely on D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton on Thursday night against the Broncos.

Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis caught two passes for 25 yards against the Titans in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Due to the continued presences of Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley, Davis has not had the breakout-type season that many expected from him this year. Instead, he has hauled in just six of 10 targets for 104 yards and one touchdown. Furthermore, Monday night's game was the first time he was targeted more than once since Week 1. He's worth stashing in dynasty leagues but should not be on your radar in redraft formats.

The Buffalo Bills defense had a shaky outing in Week 6, allowing 362 yards to the Titans. A large chunk of that came from Derrick Henry, who decimated Buffalo for 156 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns. While the Bills gave up 34 points and lost, Jordan Poyer did force an interception.

Fantasy Impact: This unit had been very strong, shutting out the Texans and Dolphins while holding the Chiefs to 20 points and picking off Patrick Mahomes twice. However, they were unable to thwart the dominating attack of Derrick Henry on Monday night. The team will look to regroup during their Week 7 bye, then return to face Miami again.

Bills kicker Tyler Bass went 3-for-3 while attempting field goals and 2-for-2 while attempting extra points against the Titans in Week 6. His field goals came from 24, 28, and 52 yards out.

Fantasy Impact: Bass has now made all 21 of his extra-point tries and 14 of his 15 field-goal kicks this season. One of the most reliable kickers in football, Bass offers intrigue in fantasy football due to the high-scoring nature of the Buffalo offense. You should scoop him up if he is available in an of your leagues.

Bills tight end Tommy Sweeney hauled in his lone target for a one-yard touchdown against the Titans on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: This was the first touchdown of Sweeney's career. The 26-year-old totaled eight catches for 114 yards as a rookie in 2019 but then missed all of 2020 due to a heart condition. Through six games this year, he has amassed four catches, four yards, and one score.

Bills tight end Dawson Knox (hand) hauled in all three of his targets for a total of 25 receiving yards against the Titans in Week 6. He also got involved in some trickery, playing quarterback and completing a two-point conversion pass to Josh Allen. However, this was Knox's final play of the game as he injured his hand and was ruled out shortly thereafter.

Fantasy Impact: Knox's run of phenomenal finishes came to a halt on Monday night in a contest that snapped his four-game touchdown streak. He now has 21 catches for 286 yards and five scores through six games this season. Buffalo is on bye in Week 7, so early speculation would suggest that Knox should be ready to return against the Dolphins in Week 8.

Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie rushed one time for three yards against the Titans in Week 6. He also hauled in his lone target for an additional five yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: McKenzie has primarily been a returner this season, standing on the receiving end of nine kickoffs and 13 punts. However, he logged two touches on Monday, which was the first time he was involved on offense since a one-catch, one-yard effort in Week 2.
