The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. It'll be the third straight game without Hobbs.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. It looks like that shoulder injury is just about behind him. Adams remains a must-start for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) returned to a limited practice Thursday. It's an upgrade over last week, when Adams only got on the field for the final practice of the week. He should be closer to 100% for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots than he was this past Monday night.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this injury on Monday night but managed just four catches for 45 yards. Adams will play against the Patriots this weekend, but it's clear that he's not at 100%.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers hauled 7 of 10 targets for a team-high 75 yards with a TD on Monday night vs. the Packers. Fantasy managers hoping for a big “revenge game” from WR Davante Adams went to sleep disappointed. The former All-Pro had been targeted 33 times over the last two games but only saw 1 target in the first half of Week 5. He ended the game with 4 catches for 45 yards. Definitely a bit of a bummer. Next week, Adams will have a chance to bounce back against the Patriots.

Raiders CB Jakorian Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Packers. That leaves Las Vegas down two of its top three CBs, with Nate Hobbs (ankle) already ruled out. Bennett put in limited practices all week, so we'll see about his Week 6 availability.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Packers. He was able to play through this injury last week, and there have been no reports about his playing time being limited tonight. The added risk comes with the chance of re-injury. But Adams belongs in fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Packers tonight, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Adams has "barely practiced" since hurting the shoulder last week, Pelissero adds, so he comes with elevated risk in Week 5 fantasy lineups. But Adams should be available if you've been waiting on him. We'll get the Raiders' inactives around 7 pm ET.

The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for the second straight game. CB Jakorian Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is questionable. The Monday night kickoff vs. the Packers makes Bennett not worth waiting on for IDP lineups in most cases.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Packers. He got in just a limited practice on Saturday. Adams played through this injury last week, so we're expecting him to play on Monday. But we'll look for further updates on his status.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) missed practice again on Friday. He was able to play through this injury last week, so we're still expecting him to be out there against his former Packers squad on Monday night. But we'll see how Adams is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday. He was able to play through the injury last week, so he should be available for Monday night's game vs. the Packers. But we'll keep an eye on Adams over the next few days.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers tallied just 2 grabs for 33 yards in Week 4. He had a 50-yard downfield catch negated by an offensive pass interference penality, but the real issue here was shaky play from rookie QB Aidan O’Connell. On the bright side: Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) should return for Week 5 vs. Green Bay. Meyers notched 29.1 and 15.5 PPR points in two full games with Garoppolo.

Raiders WR Davante Adams suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. He was in obvious pain on the field and is officially questionable to return. We'll update Adams' status as soon as we know more.

Update: Adams returned to the game later in the second quarter.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is active for today's game against the Chargers. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

The Vikings will go with the hot hand at RB vs. the Panthers today, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. RB Alexander Mattison "is still the starter," per Pelissero, but we could see "a lot of" RB Cam Akers. Mattison has been inefficient and mistake-prone through three games, so there's an opening for Akers. Mattison remains the preferred fantasy play today, but his floor is much lower than it's been the first three weeks.

The Raiders will start rookie QB Aidan O'Connell over QB Brian Hoyer vs. the Chargers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. O'Connell got the "majority" of the practice reps by the end of the week, per Schefter. O'Connell finished his four-year career at Purdue with a 66.7% completion rate, 7.4 yards per attempt, and 65 TDs vs. 30 INTs. He went in the fourth round of this spring's draft but was a preseason standout, completing 69.4% of his passes for 482 yards, three TDs, and 0 INTs. He ranked second among 68 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus passing grade. O'Connell is obviously a major question mark heading into his first regular-season start. But he at least brings more upside than the 37-year-old Hoyer.

Raiders WR Davante Adams hauled in 13 of 20 targets for 172 yards and 2 TDs in Week 3 vs. the Steelers. Teammate Jakobi Meyers saw major involvement in his return from a concussion, logging 7 catches on 12 targets for 85 yards in Sunday night’s loss. These performances certainly benefited fantasy managers this weekend, particularly the 42.2 PPR point effort from Adams. The Vegas duo will look to deliver again in Week 4 vs. the Chargers.

The Vikings made RB Cam Akers inactive for his first game with the team. So RB Alexander Mattison continued to dominate backfield usage. He took 20 carries for 93 yards and added a 5-32 receiving line on 7 targets. Mattison benefited from facing a weak Chargers D and from Minnesota running 83 offensive plays. But we'll have to assume he retains the clear backfield lead until/unless something changes. Week 4 holds a high-upside matchup with a Panthers D that has been run over so far this season.

Colts QB Gardner Minshew completed 27 passes on 44 attempts for 227 yards and 1 TD in Week 3 vs. the Ravens. Those who needed a spot starter in 2QB or superflex leagues can’t be too upset with the results from Sunday’s OT win, though Minshew wasn’t anything special. Hopefully, rookie QB Anthony Richardson will be back under center for Indianapolis in Week 4 vs. the Rams.
