Latest Player Updates

Fantasy Impact: McNichols was a limited participant in practice on Thursday but was listed as DNP on both Friday and Saturday, putting his status in doubt. McNichols has played 31 percent of the snaps this season but has seen more than six touches just once. He remains a top-flight handcuff with little to no standalone value.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Chester Rogers is active for Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills. (Source: John Glennon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A.J. Brown and Julio Jones are both healthy, but Rogers could still see a role with A.J. Brown, expecting to see limited snaps. However, he has been playing limited snaps when Brown and Julio are healthy and may be fourth on the depth chart behind Marcus Johnson. With that said, Josh Reynolds being inactive increases his upside.

Fantasy Impact: Brown was a full participant in practice all week and had no tag on the final injury report but was given the questionable tag on Sunday due to an illness. It appears that he is over whatever bug he caught as he has been cleared to play tonight. Brown suggested that he may see his snaps limited until Week 10 due to his hamstring ailment. Brown is more WR2 than WR1 until he gets back to playing a full complement of snaps.

Giants kicker Graham Gano made his only field goal attempt in a Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Gano's production is inconsistent because of a lackluster Giants offense and has only attempted six extra points through six games, but he is 12-for-14 on field goal attempts.

The New York Giants D/ST allowed 38 points on 365 total yards while recording two sacks and intercepting two passes in Sunday's blowout loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: The New York Giants D/ST faced two of the better offenses in the league on consecutive weeks and allowed 38 points in each of them. They are not a unit fantasy managers should rely on but do have a more favorable matchup in Week 7 against the Panthers at home.

Giants wide receiver John Ross was targeted twice but was held without a catch in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Even with the Giants dealing with multiple injuries at the wide receiver position, Ross has been unable to carve out a consistent role in the offense.

Giants tight end Evan Engram caught three of his five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Through four games, Engram has caught 14 passes for 127 yards and no touchdowns. Sunday's production was particularly disappointing when you consider the fact that the Giants were losing for much of the game and threw the ball 51 times.

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught 10 of his 14 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Shepard missed Weeks 3 and 4 with a hamstring injury but managed to return and catch a whopping 10 passes in Week 6. His production was aided by a blowout loss that resulted in the Giants throwing the ball 51 times, but he easily paced all receivers on Sunday. The Giants are dealing with multiple injuries at the wide receiver position, making it difficult to predict production and target shares from week to week.

Giants running back Devontae Booker rushed 12 times for 41 yards and caught all four of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Booker received easily the most work on the ground in this one for the Giants, but New York threw the ball 51 times against just 18 runs (three of which were by quarterback Daniel Jones) on Sunday. Starting running back Saquon Barkley may miss at least one more game next week, but monitor his status heading into Week 7 against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Lutz missed the Saints' first five games of the year while recovering from core muscle surgery. He has a 21-day window to officially be activated now.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur says OL David Bakhtiari (ACL) will begin practicing this week. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This opens his three-week window to return. Bakhtiari began the year on PUP and has yet to play this season. He might not return in Week 7 against Washington, but he's close. This is good news for the Packers' offense as a whole.

Colts coach Frank Reich says WR Parris Campbell is dealing with a "significant" foot injury. (Source: Stephen Holder on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Reich added that Campbell will miss some time, though he didn't have an official timetable just yet. Campbell has struggled with injuries throughout his brief NFL career, and this latest issue will once again set him back. Zach Pascal will operate as the Colts' No. 3 wideout with Campbell sidelined.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 29 of his 51 pass attempts for 242 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions in Sunday's blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Jones only had one interception coming into Sunday, but he also only had just four touchdown passes. Through parts of six games (he didn't finish the game in Week 5 due to a concussion), Jones has thrown just four touchdown passes against four interceptions, though he has added 201 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. The Giants host the Panthers in Week 7.

Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins made two of his three field goal attempts and his only extra point try in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Hopkins made one field goal in the 40-49-yard range and another from more than 50 yards out while missing another 40-49-yard attempt. Through six games, Hopkins is 12-for-14 on field goal attempts and 10-for-12 on extra point tries.

The Washington Football Team D/ST allowed 31 points on 499 total yards while intercepting two passes, recovering one fumble, and recording three sacks in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: The Washington Football Team D/ST has allowed 30 or more points in four straight games, and the 499 total yards allowed on Sunday is a new season-high. They face the Packers in Green Bay in Week 7.

Washington wide receiver Dyami Brown caught three of his six targets for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Brown was inactive for Week 5 and received just two targets in Weeks 3 and 4, but his increased production in Week 6 still is not enough for fantasy managers to be interested.

Category: Game Recaps


Washington wide receiver Adam Humphries caught one of his two targets for negative yardage in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Through six games, Humphries has just 15 receptions for 149 yards and no touchdowns despite fellow wideout Curtis Samuel missing much of the season.

Category: Game Recaps


Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed eight times for 45 yards and caught eight of his 10 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: McKissic's carries, targets, and receptions were all new season-highs thanks in part to Antonio Gibson dealing with an injury on Sunday. McKissic has value in PPR formats but will likely provide inconsistent production unless Gibson misses time.

The Minnesota Vikings placed Patrick Peterson on injured reserve on Monday with what was called cramping. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Peterson had to be carted off the field on Sunday with what was initially considered cramps, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer later noted that it was an issue with his hamstring. Peterson will be eligible to return in Week 11 against Green Bay.

The Seattle Seahawks and Pete Carroll have reached out to Cam Newton. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The experience without Russell Wilson in Seattle continues, at least for antother few more weeks. Geno Smith played the part as a game manager in Sunday's overtime loss against the Steelers, but the Seahawks are still exploring other options. They previously worked out Blake Bortles and Newton now appears to be a potential suitor as well.
