Colts RB Zack Moss ran for just 21 yards on 7 carries, as Indy barely tried the ground game in a lopsided loss to the Jaguars. He scored from 3 yards out in the fourth quarter, though, and added a 6-38 receiving line on 7 targets. That tied him for third on the team in targets. Jonathan Taylor got much closer to Moss in his second game back, beating Moss by 1 carry and trailing him by just 1 target. A Week 7 meeting with the Browns looks tough for the whole offense.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 24 of 35 attempts for 185 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT against Seattle. The Bengals ran only 53 plays in this one, but Burrow clearly wasn’t at his best. He at least salvaged his day with first-half scores to Tyler Boyd (8 yards) and Andrei Iosivas (3 yards). Burrow enters a Week 7 bye before a tough road date at San Francisco.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins managed only 2 catches for 20 yards in Sunday’s win over Seattle. Coming back from a cracked rib, the contract-year WR posted just a 56.7% route rate (21/37) – third among Cincy WRs. Higgins’ 11.5% target share ranked fourth on the team. He should be back to his normal role following a Week 7 bye.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. We haven’t heard anything about his snaps being limited today with what’s reportedly a pain-management issue. But there’s still some risk of re-injury. See where Higgins sits in the Week 6 WR Rankings.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ribs) is expected to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Higgins' rib injury is a pain-management issue, so there's a chance that he's able to play a full allotment of snaps. But there's still elevated risk to using him in Week 6 fantasy lineups. See where Higgins sits in the WR Rankings.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. But HC Zac Taylor labeled Higgins a game-time decision. "It’s really just tolerating the pain," Higgins said Friday. "It’s probably going to be like this for the rest of the season until I can heal up for months.” We'll look for further updates on Higgins' status and will get Cincinnati's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

The Panthers have ruled S Vonn Bell and S Xavier Woods out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Woods comes as no surprise, as he's dealing with a multi-week hamstring injury. Bell suffered a quad injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. Sam Franklin has been starting in Woods' spot and carries tackle upside into a matchup with speedy Miami. We'll see who fills in for Bell. IDP managers would love to get full playing time for Jeremy Chinn, but he played a season-low 30% of the snaps in Week 5, despite injuries at safety and LB. Fifth-round rookie Jammie Robinson is the other SS candidate. You can stash Chinn for now in case he gets the nod, or you could simply avoid the situation (beyond Franklin). We'll watch for more details.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) remained limited in Thursday's practice. But he said afterward that it’s looking “promising” for him to play Sunday vs. the Seahawks. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited last Friday before missing the Cardinals game. Higgins is uncertain for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. We'll keep you updated on his status over the next few days.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) is considered "day-to-day" this week, HC Zac Taylor said Monday. Higgins returned to a limited practice last Friday, so he seems to have some chance to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase exploded on Sunday with a whopping 15 catches on 19 targets for 192 receiving yards and 3 TDs vs. the Cardinals. It took until October for him to score a TD, but he more than made up for the drought in Week 5. Nothing says superstar like a 41.3% target share, finding the end zone thrice, and not even passing your own career-high in PPR fantasy points (2021 Week 17, 55.6). Let’s hope Burrow and Chase keep cooking in Week 6 vs. the Seahawks.

Looks like Bengals QB Joe Burrow’s calf might finally be feeling better. On Sunday, Burrow completed 36 of 46 attempts for 317 passing yards with 3 TDs and 1 INT vs. the Cardinals. Fantasy managers in 1QB leagues who opted to bench him might be annoyed, but at least there’s some hope that the old Burrow is back now. He’ll have a chance to build upon this performance in Week 6 vs. the Seahawks.

Sunday's return by Colts RB Jonathan Taylor didn't stop RB Zack Moss from getting workhorse usage and posting big fantasy numbers against the Titans. Moss racked up 165 yards and 2 TDs on 23 carries, vs. just 6 attempts for Taylor. Moss added 30 yards on 2 receptions, with Taylor going 1-16 receiving on 1 target. Moss' big strike came from 56 yards out in the first quarter. but he also scored from the 3-yard line in the middle of the third quarter. We got indications before the game that Indy would ease Taylor back in. This drastic split in Moss' favor, though, has to make you wary of expecting too much for Taylor in Week 6 at Jacksonville. That said, the Colts didn't extend Taylor at $14 million a year to make him Moss' sidekick. So Taylor's slow start could extend the "buy" opportunity on the star back for at least one more week -- both in redraft and dynasty. Moss, on the other hand, looks like a potential "sell" across formats, especially if another manager in your league has Taylor and might be panicking.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, which seemingly gives him a chance to return for Week 6. Tyler Boyd will serve as Cincinnati’s No. 2 WR today but is just a WR4 in fantasy lineups in a struggling Bengals offense.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. He got in a limited practice on Friday, which seemingly gives him a shot to return for Week 6 -- although it's worth noting that Cincinnati has a Week 7 bye. Tyler Boyd will operate as the Bengals' No. 2 WR this weekend and is a fine WR4 play in fantasy lineups.

Bengals Edge Trey Hendrickson (back), CB Cam Taylor-Britt (concussion), and CB Chidobe Awuzie (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Hendrickson popped up late on the injury report after missing Friday's practice. Awuzie's injury also popped up during the practice week, limiting his Thursday participation and then holding him out Friday. Taylor-Britt looks most likely to play. He finished the week with a full Friday practice.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. He got in a limited practice on Friday after sitting the previous two days. HC Zac Taylor said Friday that he'll sleep on it in regards to Higgins' status for Sunday's game, per The Cincinnati Enquirer's Kelsey Conway. Fantasy owners still shouldn't be counting on Higgins in Week 5 lineups, but we'll keep you updated on the situation. We won't get Bengals inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking like a long shot to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow said Wednesday that last week was the best his calf has felt coming out of a game this season. "So I'm optimistic," Burrow added. Of course, he said that he avoided a setback in Week 3 -- and then proceeded to lay an egg vs. the Titans in Week 4. Burrow is tough to trust as a QB1 right now, even in Sunday's plus matchup vs. the Cardinals.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (rib) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Zac Taylor said. Taylor labeled Higgins "day-to-day," but fantasy owners should not be counting on him playing vs. the Cardinals this weekend. The Bengals get the Seahawks in Week 6 before a Week 7 bye.
