 Crowell has been missing practice this week with a foot injury plus the Jets take on the Vikings' excellent front seven. Both of those and the fact that Crowell has just two games of over 40 yards this season all point to him being a sit this weekend.
Elisha Twerski
Cheesehead TV
The Cardinals have allowed six different backs to score 14 or more points (standard) against them through six weeks. Lindsay has a good shot at reaching that number. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Lindsay remains the top dog in the Broncos' backfield, giving him a stable weekly floor, but the presence of Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker has been eating away at his upside. Perhaps this is the week he puts together a big game, as he faces an Arizona D that gives up the most fantasy points to running backs. If Crowell is destined to continually alternate good and bad fantasy weeks, than he's due for another big one. But that's just about the only reason to expect it as Crowell battles a foot injury and faces off with a Vikings defense that has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher and has given up just one rushing touchdown to RBs.
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
 Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Crowell played with an ankle injury last weekend, despite not getting in much practice. This week, he's listed with a foot injury. Back-to-back lower body injuries are a big red flag, even though Crowell is practicing this week. He will almost certainly be hindered by his injuries if he plays Week 7.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Is it possible that I've found the Amari Cooper of running backs? While Crowell isn't as talented as Cooper, he's the running back version of him. He's had games of 219 and 102 rushing yards, but has totaled 40 yards or less in the other four games. He's a boom-or-bust option, but he's still on the RB2/3 radar most weeks because you cannot name 24 running backs who are consistently putting up numbers. Powell is clearly going to be involved every week, as he's actually edged out Crowell 85-78 in the touch department, though he's not breaking big plays the way Crowell is, which makes him a bit less valuable, though maybe a bit less volatile as well. If there's one area of the Vikings offense that hasn't lost a step, it's their run defense that's held every running back not named Todd Gurley to 16 or less PPR points. He's the only one who's been able to reach 60 yards on the ground as well, so it's not a week to expect big things out of Crowell.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Broncos have a very frustrating RBBC, but Lindsay seems to be the lead back and he should have RB2 value against one of the worst run defenses in the NFL.The Vikings are 10th against fantasy running backs this year, Crowell is a decent flex option in a tough matchup this week.
