Big names like Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green have already been ruled out this week. That means you may be in for a hectic could of days when it comes to getting your week 6 fantasy football lineup in order. For assistance in doing so, keep banging it here on BreakingFootball.com for a slew of advice columns. Trust me, they’re awesome.
For the latest on NFL injury news and how it may impact your lineup, check in right here before the Sunday games start:
Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals
Palmer has sat out the last four games with a nerve issue in his shoulder, but will reportedly return under center this week. He’s somewhat tough to trust but he’s worth a shot against a pretty weak Redskins pass defense.
Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals
As he’s been all season, Ellington is questionable with a lingering foot injury. As has also been the case all season, expect him to play and be a solid RB2.
Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Jones is still listed as questionable with an ankle injury for Sunday’s matchup against the Bears. Expect Jones to be out there as the Falcons are likely just managing his practice reps to ensure maximum rest. Jones will be a strong play against the Bears D.
Fred Jackson, RB, Buffalo Bills
Same goes for Jackson who’s been limited in practice with an ankle injury of his own. Expect him to be out there and be a solid RB2 against the Pats.
Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers
With an ankle injury of his own, Olsen is also expected to play against Cincinnati on Sunday.
Reggie Bush, RB, Detroit Lions
Bush hasn’t practiced yet this week. He says he’s feeling good and expects to be out there, but no word from the team yet. Look out for a game time decision on Bush. Joique Bell has been practicing in full and will be the Lions starter if Bush sits out again. Have a handcuff ready.
Mike Wallace, WR, Miami Dolphins
Wallace has been dealing with a foot injury that limits him in practice every week, but expect him to play against Green Bay. He’s a decent WR2.
Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins
Moreno’s status is still up in the air for Sunday, while Miller is probable. If Moreno sits, Miller remains a RB1; if Moreno returns, Miller is still probably a decent RB2. Keep an eye out for a game time decision on Moreno.
Eric Decker, WR, New York Jets
Decker is looking more likely to play Sunday against his old team, but it’s still questionable. Even if he does play, don’t expect much more than a WR3 from him.
Keenan Allen, WR, San Diego Chargers
Allen has been limited in practice after aggravating his quad against the Jets last week. He should be fine against the Raiders this week though and has a chance to put up big numbers against a defense lacking talent.
Vernon Davis, TE, San Francisco 49ers
Davis is looking likely to play Monday night against Arizona but given the uncertain status for a Monday night game and the stout Arizona D, it might be wise to sit him again.
Percy Harvin, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Harvin might be a game time decision against the Cowboys this week. He hasn’t practiced this week with a thigh injury. Keep an eye on his status as, despite his lack of production so far this season, he always has huge potential as we saw last week with his 3 TDs, all of which were called back though.
Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins
Reed looks to make his return from a hamstring injury that he sustained in week one. There has been some word he could be limited, but his matchup with the Cardinals is too good to pass up. He could do some damage even on 15-20 snaps.
