Fantasy Impact: Murphy missed a few snaps against the Texans after rolling his ankle in the loss. The injury is minor, though, and shouldn’t be considered a threat to hold him out of Week 7. Murphy has three sacks in his first six games as a Bill.

Leonard Fournette was held out of Wednesday's practice due to his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: Fournette remains sidelined, though the team has said there's a chance he plays Week 7. There's also a chance that he remains sidelined through the team's Week 9 bye based on other reports. As such, owners will need to continue to monitor Fournette's status through the week. Fellow RB T.J. Yeldon is also banged up, so the entire Jaguars' backfield is one to watch entering Week 7.

T.J. Yeldon was held out of Wednesday's practice due to foot and ankle injuries.

Fantasy Impact: The foot injury is new, and it's not clear if this was suffered during Week 6. With Leonard Fournette also banged up, this could be a situation to monitor for potential value this week. The recently signed Jamaal Charles would be the next man up in Jacksonville.

Ryan Grant was held out of Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Grant was knocked out of Week 6's contest due to the injury, so it's not clear what his status will be for Week 7. Even before the injury, he's been disappointing, taking a back seat to Chester Rodgers in terms of Andrew Luck's targets.

Jack Doyle was held out of Wednesday's practice due to his hip injury.

Fantasy Impact: Doyle was able to return to practice last week, but he was still ruled out due to the injury. Owners will need to monitor his status leading up to Week 7. If Doyle should remain out, Eric Ebron would continue to be a TE1 given the volume he's seen in Doyle's absence.

Darren Sproles remained sidelined during Wednesday's practice due to his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: Sproles has been sidelined for weeks with the injury. While he could factor into the Eagles' backfield when healthy, it's not clear when that will be at this point. For now, he's best left on waivers in most leagues.

Rishard Matthews told reporters that he's unlikely to sign with a team this season. (Source: Allan Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Matthews recently worked out for the Jets, but this report would seem to indicate that he's likely to wait until the offseason to sign with a new team. Matthews was fantasy relevant last season, but it appears he'll remain sidelined for the 2018 campaign.

Raheem Mostert hasn't permanently moved ahead of veteran Alfred Morris, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. (Source: Cam Inman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan added that Mostert saw the volume he did since he was running well and Breida was surprisingly able to play. This throws some cold water on Mostert despite his solid production Week 6. Regardless, it would seem that this could at least become a three-way timeshare of the RB position, with Mostert likely to be in line for more work following his impressive Week 6. While Breida's value should remain about the same, Morris' would take a hit even if he's still somewhat involved.


Ted Ginn was held out of Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn was held out of the team's Week 5 contest prior to their Week 6 bye. Given he's still not practicing, he figures to be at least questionable heading into their Week 7 contest against the Ravens. Rookie Tre'Quan Smith stepped up in Ginn's absence and could continue to see significant targets if Ginn remains sidelined.

Fantasy Impact: The Lions are coming off a bye, so the continued absence is concerning for Riddick. Owners will need to monitor his status ahead of the team's Week 7 contest against the Dolphins.

Devante Parker was able to practice in full Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Parker was able to return Week 6, and the full practice is a sign that he didn't suffer a setback. That might be bad news considering how invisible he was during the shootout with the Bears. Despite his pedigree and upside, Parker isn't fantasy relevant at this point.

John Ross was able to practice fully for the first time since suffering his groin injury at the end of September. (Source: Bengals.com)

Fantasy Impact: It's a great sign ahead of what should be a shootout against the Chiefs. Ross is known for his speed, so the Bengals likely want him to be 100% before returning to the field. While it hasn't been a breakout as some expected for Ross, he has shown some upside and continues to be a home run threat.

Giovani Bernard is expected to miss Week 7, according to Bengals.com. (Source: Bengals.com)

Fantasy Impact: Bernard isn't practicing Wednesday, and the Bengals.com reporter believes that is a sign that Bernard will miss Week 7's contest against the Chiefs. Bernard was expected to miss 2-4 weeks due to his injury. If he remains sidelined, Joe Mixon will continue to be the bell-cow for the team in what could be a shootout against the Chiefs.

Pierre Garcon was held out of Wednesday's practice with injuries. (Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Garcon didn't practice last week but was still able to suit up against the Packers. As such, owners should continue monitoring his status and news from the team regarding if he'll suit up Week 7.

Jamison Crowder was held out of Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder was inactive Week 6, so owners will need to monitor his status this week ahead of the team's Week 7 game against the Cowboys.

Paul Richardson missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson was able to play through injury Week 6, but owners will need to monitor his status this week leading up to the team's contest against the Cowboys. With injuries to other pass catchers, notably Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson, Richardson caught three passes, including a touchdown, Week 6.
