Bills WR John Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He was a full-go Thursday and Friday but limited on Saturday. That makes Brown a shaky fantasy play with the late kickoff. Rookie WR Gabriel Davis will step in as Buffalo's #3 WR if Brown is out.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) put in a full practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to return for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. Brown will be on the WR3 radar for that likely shootout.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Titans. That’ll mean an expanded role for rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who is a nice flier in DFS tournaments.

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be close to 100%. Consider the rookie a boom/bust WR3 in what could turn into a shootout in Kansas City.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) is "hoping" to play against the Chiefs today, although no final decision on his status has been made, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Ruggs was listed as a full participant on both Thursday and Friday, so we'd be surprised if he doesn't play. We'll find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Titans. Between Brown's lengthy injury history and the late kickoff, we'd try not to use him in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should play. Consider the rookie a boom/bust WR3 in what could turn into a shootout in Kansas City.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) graduated to a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. The rookie will be a boom/bust WR3 in a game that figures to find Vegas playing catch-up.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's an upgrade over last week, when he sat out all 3 days. Ruggs has a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. We'll continue to track his status.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake left Sunday's loss at Carolina early with what was deemed a chest injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that Drake "just got the wind knocked out of him" and was already working out Monday morning with "no issues." So health should not be a factor in whether to keep Drake in Week 5 fantasy football lineups.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake appeared to suffer an injury late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Drake was able to get off the field under his own power before heading back to the locker room. HC Kliff Kingsbury had no update on Drake afterward. We'll look for one tomorrow. Chase Edmonds would step in as Arizona's lead back if Drake misses time.

Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He should step back into the role Nicholas Morrow has been filling. Kwiatkoski is just a middling IDP option against a Buffalo offense that has gone pass-happy this season, though.

Raiders S Jonathan Abram (shoulder, thumb) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He carries high tackle upside against a pass-heavy Buffalo offense.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Bills. With WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) also out, Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones will serve as Vegas' top 3 WRs. TE Darren Waller is the favorite to lead in targets.

Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) and S Jonathan Abram (shoulder, thumb) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Kwiatkoski -- who has been out since straining a pectoral muscle early in the season opener -- graduated to full practice Friday and looks on track to play. Abram put in limited workouts all week, but Raiders Wire reports that Abram "appears likely to play" as well. Both are IDP options if in the lineup. Holding off on Kwiatkoski for another week would be OK, though, as Buffalo has been a negative scoring matchup for fantasy LBs.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills. WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) has been ruled out. Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones will serve as Vegas' top 3 WRs this weekend. TE Darren Waller is the team's best target bet.

Bills WR John Brown (calf) isn’t listed on the final injury report after returning to a full practice on Friday. It looks like he’s safe to get into fantasy lineups for this weekend’s plus matchup vs. the Raiders.

Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski returned for limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, his 1st action since straining a pectoral muscle early in the season opener. DC Paul Guenther indicated there's a chance Kwiatkoski could return for Sunday's game against the Bills, according to News 3 in Las Vegas. If he does, expect Nicholas Morrow to return to a reserve role. Whoever plays at LB for the Raiders this week will face a Buffalo offense whose suddenly pass-happy approach has meant fewer points for opponent LBs through the 1st 3 weeks.

Bills WR John Brown (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. He never returned to last week's game and is in real danger of missing Sunday's tilt with the Raiders. Brown would be replaced by rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who's hauled in all 7 of his targets for 103 yards and a score through 3 weeks.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Raiders WR Henry Ruggs is "a long shot" to play Sunday against the Bills. He's dealing with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 3. That would leave Vegas without both rookie wideouts, as Bryan Edwards is also expected to sit. Those injuries certainly boost the upside for the Bills' defense in fantasy, while lowering the ceiling for Raiders QB Derek Carr. WR Hunter Renfrow should be in for nice target volume in a matchup that has proved favorable to slot WRs.
