10/20/2018 Melvin Gordon III, LAC, RB
Gordon has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans because of a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Gordon is third in the NFL and leads the AFC with 466 rushing yards. He did not show up on the injury report until the team's practice in London on Friday, when his participation was limited.
10/19/2018 Pierre Garcon, SF, WR
Garcon is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams as he continues to deal with knee and shoulder injuries.

Analysis: Garcon has been on the injury report a lot this season but hasn't missed a game, though his production has left a lot to be desired. The 32-year-old hasn't topped 47 receiving yards in any of his last four games and has yet to score a touchdown this season.
10/19/2018 Richard Sherman, SF, CB
Sherman (calf) did not practice Friday and is considered questionable for the 49ers' Week 7 game against the Rams.

Analysis: Friday missed practices are often cause for alarm, but this may be a case of the 49ers giving Sherman a veteran's rest day considering his recent history of leg injuries. As of now consider him more likely than not to face the Rams.
10/19/2018 Julian Edelman, NE, WR
Edelman (heel) was a limited practice participant during the week and is listed questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago.

Analysis: Patriots injury reports always need to be taken with a grain of salt. There's been no indication that Edelman is in any danger of being inactive for Sunday's matchup.
10/19/2018 Sony Michel, NE, RB
The Patriots have listed Michel as questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago due to a knee issue.

Analysis: The Pats have rode the rookie hard lately, as he's averaged nearly 23 touches over the last three games. Michel was given some well-deserved practice time off during the week and there should be no concerns about his surgically repaired knee.
10/19/2018 Josh Gordon, NE, WR
Gordon has been listed as questionable for the Patriots' Week 7 game at Chicago due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Just like he has in each of New England's past three games, all of which Gordon has played in. Though yet to have a breakout performance since coming over in a trade with the Browns, the talented yet troubled wide receiver may be nearing one after being targeted a season-high nine times a week ago.
10/19/2018 Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE
According to the Boston Globe, Gronkowski did not make the trip to Chicago. He's not expected to play Sunday against the Bears but should be ready to go next Monday at Buffalo.

Analysis: Gronkowski hadn't missed a game and has played in 91 percent of New England's offensive snaps for the season so his loss is a big one. Julian Edelman and the rest of the New England offensive players will receive a boost in fantasy value with Gronk out.
10/19/2018 James O'Shaughnessy, Jax, TE
O'Shaughnessy has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Houston due to a hip injury.

Analysis: O'Shaughnessy normally isn't a fantasy-relevant player, but his absence is noteworthy with the Jaguars already without their top two pass-catching tight ends in Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul.
10/19/2018 Carlos Hyde, Jax, RB
The Jaguars have acquired Hyde from the Browns for a 2019 fifth-round pick.

Analysis: With Leonard Fournette likely out until at least the Week 9 bye, Jacksonville was in the market for a backfield complement to T.J. Yeldon. While Hyde's fantasy value will ultimately take a big hit once Fournette comes back, the move opens up an increased role for rookie Nick Chubb in Cleveland. Chubb has impressed in limited duty, averaging a tremendous 10.8 yards on his first 16 NFL rush attempts.
10/19/2018 Josh Rosen, Ari, QB
Rosen was in a walking boot Friday, one day after the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos. The rookie quarterback hurt his toe while being sacked on the team's final offensive play.

Analysis: Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said Rosen is dealing with a sprain but doesn't expect he'll miss any time. The bigger concern is the struggling youngster's play after he was responsible for five turnovers (three interceptions, two fumbles) in Thursday's disaster.
10/19/2018 Royce Freeman, Den, RB
Freeman reportedly sprained his ankle during the Broncos' win at Arizona on Thursday. According to ESPN, the rookie "could miss some time."

Analysis: Freeman has been playing behind fellow rookie Phillip Lindsay but is the Broncos' preferred back in goal-line situations, resulting in four rushing touchdowns through his first seven games. He will have a few extra days to heal up for Denver's next game at Kansas City on Oct. 28.
10/18/2018 David Johnson, Ari, RB
David Johnson ran for 39 yards on 14 carries Thursday in the Arizona Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. He added three receptions for 31 yards.
10/18/2018 Josh Rosen, Ari, QB
Josh Rosen was 21 of 39 for 194 yards and threw one touchdown pass Thursday in the Arizona Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. He threw three interceptions, fumbled twice and was sacked six times. Rosen added 14 rushing yards on one carry.
10/18/2018 Case Keenum, Den, QB
Case Keenum was 14 of 21 for 161 yards and threw one touchdown pass Thursday in the Denver Broncos' 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Keenum added four rushing yards on four carries.
10/18/2018 Allen Robinson II, Chi, WR
Robinson practiced Friday after being held out of Thursday's session with a groin injury. The wideout is listed as questionable for the Bears' Week 7 game against New England.

Analysis: It looks like Robinson will play, though he'll be a little riskier fantasy option than usual due to the injury and Taylor Gabriel's recent emergence. Gabriel has eclipsed 100 yards in two straight weeks and has 12 catches and two touchdowns over that span.
10/18/2018 Terrance Williams, Dal, WR
The NFL has suspended Williams three games without pay for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The Cowboys wide receiver was arrested in May for public intoxication in a Dallas suburb.

Analysis: Williams will lose some salary but really not any games, as he's on injured reserve due to issues with his surgically repaired right foot. He's still a possibility to return at some point late in the season.
10/18/2018 DeAndre Hopkins, Hou, WR
Despite being held out of Thursday's practice with a foot injury, Hopkins is not on the Texans' final injury report for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.

Analysis: Hopkins wasn't believed to be in danger of missing this key AFC South showdown, but this should ease any fears fantasy owners may have had. The star receiver had a touchdown catch in each of Houston's two 2017 meetings with Jacksonville.
10/18/2018 Paul Richardson Jr., Was, WR
Richardson has not practiced this week due to a lingering knee injury and is doubtful to play Sunday against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Jamison Crowder also won't play because of an ankle injury, leaving the Redskins extremely thin at the wide receiver spots. Expect a lot of Alex Smith dump-offs to running back Chris Thompson and tight end Jordan Reed this weekend.
10/18/2018 E.J. Gaines, Cle, CB
Gaines has been diagnosed with a concussion and will miss Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Gaines had started Cleveland's last two games in place of Terrance Mitchell, who's now on IR with a wrist fracture. The Browns are beginning to lose bodies on the defensive side, as Pro Bowl middle linebacker Joe Schobert also isn't expected to play Sunday due to a hamstring injury.
10/18/2018 T.J. Yeldon, Jax, RB
Yeldon will practice Thursday after being held out of Wednesday's workouts with foot and ankle injuries.

Analysis: Yeldon is likely just dealing with some bumps and bruises and is having his practice reps scaled back a bit. He's set to work again as Jacksonville's lead back this Sunday against the Texans with Leonard Fournette a long shot to play.
