Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Mike Vrabel said earlier this week that he was hoping Burks would be able to get back on the field this week. But fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him playing vs. the Ravens on Sunday morning.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel said, "we'll see" when asked if WR Treylon Burks (knee) will be back for Sunday morning's game vs. the Ravens in London. "(We're) hopeful that he can try to get out and start running around," Vrabel added. We'll keep tabs on Burks' practice participation over the next few days.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard had a quiet game in Week 5. The veteran tallied 64 total yards on 12 touches with a lost fumble vs. the 49ers. His teammates Deuce Vaughn and Rico Dowdle combined for 8 carries and 22 rushing yards, so it’s not as though any other Cowboys RB had much greater success in the blowout 42-10 loss. Fortunately, Week 6 brings a matchup against a Chargers defense that ranked as the 11th-easiest opponent in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs prior to their bye week. Fantasy managers will have to get over this bummer quickly and hope for better days ahead.

Titans rookie RB Tyjae Spears posted a 7-34-1 rushing line and made 4 receptions for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts. That combo made him the top-scoring fantasy RB for Tennessee on the day. Derrick Henry beat him in carries with 13 but averaged just 3.3 yards per rush, for 43 yards on the ground total. Henry added 3 receptions for 19 yards on 3 targets. The Titans get a home date in Week 6 with Baltimore, which is likely to enter the game as the favorite. The Ravens entered Week 5 ranked fourth in pass-defense DVOA and sixth against the run. The negative all-around matchup could point to another useful spot for Spears if you need a bye-week fill-in. Tennessee gets its bye in Week 7.

Titans TE Chig Okonkwo nabbed a season-high 5 receptions for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts. His 9 targets beat his previous high by five, but the yardage remained unimpressive. Missing WR Treylon Burks (knee) and the team setting a season high for pass attempts certainly helped. Don't expect this game to change our outlook for Okonkwo going forward.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins snagged 8 receptions for 140 yards on 11 targets in Sunday's loss to the Colts. He drew a target on 31.4% of Tennessee pass attempts, claimed 34.8% of the team's receptions, and accounted for 53% of the receiving yards. The numbers marked high points for Hopkins in receptions and yards with the Titans, while QB Ryan Tannehill matched his season high in pass attempts from Week 1. Missing WR Treylon Burks (knee) certainly didn't hurt Hopkins' role, but he has easily led the team's receiving through five games.

Bengals CB Chidobe Awuzie (back) is inactive for today's game against the Cardinals. CB Cam Taylor-Britt (concussion) and Edge Trey Hendrickson (back) are active, after entering the day questionable.

Welcome back, Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley! The veteran had a tremendous bounceback performance in Week 5, catching 7 of 8 targets for a team-leading 122 receiving yards vs. the Bills. Teammate Christian Kirk also had a productive outing with 6 receptions and 78 receiving yards. Managers who held out hope for Ridley were rewarded handsomely with the 20.6 PPR point performance. Next week’s matchup vs. the Colts will be telling as to whether this is a blip on the radar or more of a trend of things to come.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. He's yet to practice since hurting his knee on September 27. WR DeAndre Hopkins is a good bet to dominate Titans targets this weekend.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Vrabel said last week that Burks isn't dealing with a long-term injury, but he certainly seems to be in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Colts.

The Cowboys racked up 38 points in Sunday's blowout win over the Patriots, but RB Tony Pollard didn't do any of it. He carried 11 times for 47 yards and caught all 3 targets for 13 more. But he watched Hunter Luepke claim the team's only rushing TD from 3 yards out midway through the fourth quarter. CeeDee Lamb caught the only other offensive TD. The defense added a pair of TD returns. There's nothing to worry about from this disappointing day if you have Pollard rostered. Just shrug it off and get ready for a tough matchup with the 49ers in Week 5. At least the doughy Chargers defense awaits the week after that.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins snagged 4 of 6 targets for 63 yards in Sunday’s win vs. the Bengals. Teammate Nick Westbrook-Ikhine hauled in a TD in the contest to go along with 5 catches and 51 yards of his own. Despite WR Treylon Burks missing Week 4, TE Chigoziem Okonkwo didn’t factor into the passing game very much. He only saw 3 targets turn into 5.9 PPR points. Next up for the Titans is a Week 5 matchup vs. the Colts.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. It looks like he injured his knee in Wednesday's practice, but we don't have any other details. Burks' absence leaves Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as Tennessee's No. 2 WR and boosts WR DeAndre Hopkins' target projection.

Update: HC Mike Vrabel said after Friday's practice that Burks is only expected to be sidelined about a week. This knee injury isn't related to the LCL sprain he suffered in mid-August.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (knee) did not practice on Thursday. That followed a limited practice on Wednesday. Burks either hurt that knee in Wednesday's practice or just got today off. We should know more about his status when we get Tennessee's final injury report tomorrow.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins is not listed on the Week 4 injury report. He's been bothered by an ankle injury the past two weeks but is evidently healthy heading into Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. Hopkins posted a 7-65-0 line on 13 targets in Week 1, the last time he was off the injury report.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard encountered some bad luck in Week 3. He looked spry en route to 121 yards on 26 touches, but he lost a 15-yard screen pass TD to backup Rico Dowdle. (Pollard wasn’t in for the previous play, and the one before that was a false start.) Dallas’ lead back is now sitting on 0 TDs over the past two weeks, despite 58 touches. You’ll continue to see him near the top of our RB rankings due to that high-end volume.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. He went from a full practice on Wednesday to a limited practice on Thursday and then no practice on Friday. So it’s safe to assume that Hopkins is nowhere near 100% today. He managed just four catches for 40 scoreless yards playing through this ankle injury last week. See where Hopkins sits in the Week 3 WR Rankings.

Insider Jordan Schultz reports that Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) will play vs. the Browns on Sunday. Hopkins is listed as questionable after missing Friday's practice, so it's safe to assume he won't be anywhere close to 100%. Hopkins' snaps were a bit limited by this injury last week, and he finished with just four catches on five targets for 40 yards. Consider him just a WR3 in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. He went from a full practice on Wednesday to a limited practice on Thursday and then no practice on Friday. Hopkins said Friday that he'll travel to Cleveland but wouldn't guarantee that he'll play. We'll watch for updates on his status and will get Tennessee's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. Hopkins managed just four catches for 40 scoreless yards playing through this ankle injury last week.

Titans WR Treylon Burks led the team in receiving with 76 yards, hauling in 3 of 4 targets. Teammate DeAndre Hopkins had a quiet effort with 4 catches on 5 targets for 40 yards. Considering how often Tennessee runs the ball, it’s going to be difficult to trust any Titans’ pass-catcher to have massive fantasy production. Managers in deep leagues can consider both as potential flex options in Week 3 vs. the Browns.
