Rams RB Darrell Henderson suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is questionable to return. Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers have been splitting backfield duties in Henderson's absence.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He wasn’t a reliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% today. Higbee’s presence knocks TE Gerald Everett out of consideration, though.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is "pushing to play" against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But with the bye coming up and Johnny Mundt filling in capably, it might make sense to rest Higbee again and let him heal. Higbee could sit for those reasons," Rapoport adds. We'll get Higbee's official status around 11:30 am ET. TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter if Higbee is inactive after posting a 4-28-1 line on 5 targets last week.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. HC Sean McVay called him a game-time decision on Friday. Higbee was an unreliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% if he suits up this weekend. If he sits, TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. That should mean a boost in playing time for TE Gerald Everett. He's a fine fill-in if you were hoping to use Higbee tonight -- and a nice play in 1-game DFS contests.

Rams WR Robert Woods was added to the injury report and sidelined on Friday with a groin issue. He returned to a limited practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. That means the Rams fully expect him to play against the Bears on Monday night. Woods can stay in fantasy lineups for now, but this is something to keep an eye on.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears. He only got in a limited practice on Saturday. HC Sean McVay said he's "hopeful" Higbee will be able to play after he got hit in the hand in last week's loss to the 49ers. Higbee was already a shaky fantasy play, averaging just 3.5 targets per game. He should be on fantasy benches with his late kickoff this week. Higbee's absence would turn TE Gerald Everett into a nice DFS play.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Eagles WR DeSean Jackson suffered a non-displaced fracture to his right ankle in Thursday night's loss to the Giants -- a "similar injury" to that suffered by teammate Dallas Goedert. Jackson's expected to miss 6-8 weeks. Garafolo reports that he's "highly motivated to get back this year and next." With just 9 weeks remaining in the fantasy football regular season for most leagues, though, you can drop Jackson. The injury extends the window for WR Travis Fulgham to maintain his role. We'll see about the upcoming returns of other Eagles pass-catchers.

The Eagles believe WR DeSean Jackson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday night's win over the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. D-Jax is getting an MRI on Friday to confirm. He figures to miss multiple weeks with this latest injury and is droppable in fantasy leagues.

Update: Jackson has been placed on IR, so he'll miss at least the next 3 games.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson left in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Giants with an injury to his right leg. Jackson's leg got stuck underneath him and twisted on a late hit during a punt return. We'll see about the severity of the injury, but Jackson left the field with the help of 2 trainers while putting no weight on his right foot.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 7 injury report after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. He'll return for Thursday night's game against the Giants after missing the past 3 weeks. Ideally you can wait to see D-Jax make it through a game healthy before throwing him back into fantasy lineups. But he has big-play upside whenever he's out there, so he's a fine Week 7 flier.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles expect to get WR DeSean Jackson back for Thursday night's game against the Giants. Jackson is out for today's game against the Ravens, which will be his 3rd straight contest lost to a hamstring injury. We'll watch practice reports on Jackson heading into Week 7, but he should be in fantasy consideration for that matchup. The return of any deep threat can only help the fantasy outlook for QB Carson Wentz.

Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) are out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Both guys were limited in practice all week and seem close to returning. Their absences this week keep WR Travis Fulgham in play, although it’s a tough spot for Philly’s offense.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all 3 days last week before missing the Steelers game. D-Jax is seemingly trending in the right direction -- but we'd wait until he makes it through a full game before tossing him back in fantasy lineups.

Rams S Jordan Fuller re-injured his right shoulder late in Sunday's win over Washington. The team announced Tuesday that he's headed to IR. It's not yet clear how soon the Rams expect him to return, but Fuller will miss at least the next 3 games. Taylor Rapp will step back into his spot and is worth picking up in most IDP leagues where you start DBs. Elsewhere on the Rams defense, HC Sean McVay said he hopes to get LB Micah Kiser back for Week 6. That would push Week 5 standout Troy Reeder back to a reserve role. We'll keep an eye on Kiser's participation leading up to Sunday night's clash with the 49ers.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (groin) is inactive for today's game against Washington. He leaves no safe LB option available for IDP owners. Kenny Young should be the best bet for playing time behind him, as the other regular starter. But Rams coaches may elect to keep him at his normal limited playing time. Troy Reeder looks like the best bet to join the lineup. CB Troy Hill (ankle) is active after hitting the day questionable.

Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) practiced all week and will return for Sunday’s game against Washington. Your guess is as good as our’s for how carries will be split between Akers, Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown. All 3 guys are risky fantasy plays.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He returned to limited practices this week, giving him a shot to be back for Week 6. Philly will continue to roll with a rag-tag WR group of Greg Ward, John Hightower, Travis Fulgham, Deontay Burnett and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who is set to return after missing last week with a calf injury.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Steelers. We'd like to see D-Jax make it through a game healthy before tossing him back in fantasy lineups.

Rams RB Cam Akers (ribs) returned to practice on Wednesday and is expected to play against Washington this weekend, according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry. That throws another variable into a backfield that's been tough to figure out so far. Akers, Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown will all be risk/reward RB3 or flex plays in Week 5.
