Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Teammate Sheldon Richardson told ESPN's Colin Stephenson that Wilkerson first complained about the ankle "weeks ago," while HC Todd Bowles described his star lineman as "sorer than usual." Wilkerson's playing time hasn't suffered, but he hasn't surpassed 3 tackles since Week 1. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.
Rams DEs Robert Quinn (shoulder) and William Hayes (ankle) are questionable once again for Sunday's game against the Giants. Both put in full practices Friday, however, and seem likely to play. Hayes returned from his injury last week. Quinn was said to be on track to play but was inactive at Detroit. Having both would help an upside team D in fantasy football, while a healthy Quinn delivers his own high ceiling for IDP owners.
Seahawks S Kam Chancellor is doubtful for Sunday night's game at Arizona with the groin injury that cost him last week's game. Chancellor missed practice every day this week with the injury he suffered last Thursday. Kelcie McCray's likely to start in his place again.
Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and HC Bruce Arians confirmed that his QB is "fine." Still, a struggling Palmer isn't a recommended fantasy starter vs. a tough Seattle defense.
Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 7. Apparently dealing with leg pain due to a sickle-cell trait, he's a long shot to play against the Seahawks on Sunday night. His status beyond that remains uncertain. Brown's absence theoretically is good news for WR Michael Floyd. But he hasn't done much to make himself a reliable fantasy play, especially in a tough matchup this week.
Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee, hip) is not listed on the team's final injury report. He got Thursday off but put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday. Graham has a tough Week 7 draw against the Cardinals' top-ranked TE defense but has earned the benefit of the doubt with 6 catches and 89+ yards in 3 straight games.
49ers WR Torrey Smith (back) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Bucs. He popped up on the injury report on Thursday and was limited in the week's final 2 practices. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Smith won't play on Sunday, but the back issue only makes him a riskier fantasy option.
49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. It sounds like he’ll be back after the team’s Week 8 bye. Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn will handle backfield duties this week, but the exact division of labor is unclear. Neither guy is a recommended fantasy play vs. a Tampa defense permitting just 3.7 yards per carry to RBs.
Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins after a limited week of practice. If active, he’d figure to share the backfield with Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett. Despite the plus matchup, Detroit’s backfield is best avoided this week.
Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return.
Giants WR Odell Beckham (hip) is not listed on the team’s final injury report. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is good to go for this weekend’s game against a Rams secondary missing top CB Trumaine Johnson. You know what to do.
Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He was spotted running off to the side of practice this week but still has no timetable for return. Ebron's absence should again be good news for WR Golden Tate this weekend.
Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He missed the first 2 practices of the week and was limited on Friday. We’ll find out D-Jax’s status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll carry more risk than usual at less than 100%.
Cardinals WR John Brown is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. He's listed with a hamstring injury, but HC Bruce Arians revealed Friday that Brown is dealing with leg pain due to a sickle-cell trait. Doctors are "working on a solution," Arians added. We might not know whether Brown is playing until 90 minutes before the 8:30 pm ET kickoff. He was a shaky fantasy option to begin with against Richard Sherman and Co. Brown needs to be on fantasy benches.
Raiders RB Latavius Murray (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He put in 3 limited practices this week and is expected to play, per ESPN's Adam Caplan. We'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Sharing the backfield with DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard and probably not at 100%, Murray is an extremely risky fantasy start.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Browns. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, which suggests he's ready to make his 2016 debut. HC Marvin Lewis on Friday wouldn't guarantee that Eifert will play but did say that a decision will be made on Saturday. We'll find out Eifert's official status by noon ET on Sunday at the latest. He'll be a risk/reward, TD-dependent Week 7 fantasy option if active.
Dolphins TEs Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims (concussion) are both out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. That leaves Miami with TEs MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones. Neither is a fantasy option.
Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. With Landry Jones under center, RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the only Steelers who should be in fantasy lineups.
Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be active. At less than 100% in a plus matchup, he's a risk/reward WR3.
Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets. He didn't practice all week and won't play. That'll again leave slot duties to WR Kamar Aiken, who posted a 4-64 line on 6 targets last week. He's a low-upside WR3 option in Sunday's plus matchup.
