Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with their hamstring injuries. Both players missed the past 3 contests, but both also returned to limited practices this week. Neither should be in your IDP plans even if active.

Ravens ILB Patrick Onwuasor is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals after missing practice all week with an ankle injury. Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports that Onwuasor will be a game-time decision. That makes him quite risky for IDP lineups. Try not to use Onwuasor this week.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a limited Friday workout. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but Williams looks risky for IDP lineups. Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports that Williams is expected to play, at least.

The Bengals have ruled DE Carlos Dunlap out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Dunlap started the week as a full participant but then left Thursday's workout early and missed Friday with a knee injury. It'll be his first missed game since 2012. We'll watch for further details on the injury.

The Panthers have deemed LB Shaq Thompson (ankle), S Eric Reid (ankle) and CB Donte Jackson (groin) questionable for Sunday morning's game in London. Thompson and Reid both put in limited practices the past 2 days after beginning the week on the sideline. Jackson practiced the first 2 days but then was limited Friday. He missed the past 2 games with the groin injury and shouldn't be in IDP lineups. We'll check on the other 2 Sunday morning, when inactives for that game arrive at 8 a.m. ET.

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Chargers. So Pittsburgh is down to 3rd-string QB Devlin Hodges, an undrafted rookie out of Samford. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is the only part of the Steelers’ passing game that should be in fantasy lineups — and even he should be considered just a WR3 for Week 6.

Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Ted Ginn and Austin Carr will again serve as the #2 and #3 WRs — but WR Michael Thomas and TE Jared Cook are the only viable fantasy plays in New Orleans’ passing game.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. After being added to the injury report on Thursday, he didn’t practice on Friday. So it looks like Kamara is in real danger of missing Sunday’s game. We’ll get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday. If Kamara is out, Latavius Murray will be a solid fantasy play as New Orleans’ lead back.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. He put in a full practice on Friday. HC Anthony Lynn said that Henry will be on a snap count if he plays, but he'd still be a viable fantasy starter considering the dearth of quality options at the position. Of course, the late kickoff makes this a tough situation for fantasy owners. We’ll look for an update on Henry on Sunday morning.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the 49ers after missing practice all week. His status beyond Week 6 is unclear. Gurley’s absence this weekend leaves Los Angeles’ backfield to Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson. We’re expecting Brown to handle most of the early-down and red-zone work, with Henderson operating in a change-of-pace role. Note that this isn’t a great matchup against a ‘Niners squad sitting 5th in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings and 2nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdominal) is out again for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins will continue to serve as Philly’s top 3 WRs.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bengals. He was sidelined Wednesday, limited on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. It's worth noting that this is a different injury from the foot issue that's plagued Andrews for the past few weeks. But he's fully expected to play on Sunday and remains a locked-in TE1.

Redskins TEs Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed are out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins with their concussions. With both guys out last week, TE Jeremy Sprinkle ran just 11 pass routes and TE Jerome Cunningham 4. Even in a plus matchup against Miami, avoid this situation in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. Minshew is a viable QB1 spot starter this week at home for the Saints.

Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage (foot) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Redskins. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. Ballage played just 8 snaps in Miami's last game and was off the fantasy radar anyway. His absence would lock in Mark Walton as the #2 RB behind Kenyan Drake.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. The Miami media seems to expect Wilson to return for this one, but he's not a viable fantasy option until we know he's back to 100%.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans. He practiced all week, but it sounds like he's still awaiting final medical clearance. The good news is that we'll get Hill's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If he's active, he'll return to must-start status. The nature of his injury means he should be a full-go once he's cleared. If Hill is out, Kansas City will roll with WRs Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 6. He didn't practice all week and won't play against the Texans on Sunday. We'll see if he can make it back for this coming Thursday night's game against the Broncos.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh labeled WR Marquise Brown (ankle) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Bengals. The rookie didn't practice all week, and Harbaugh admitted that he was surprised Brown was unable to practice on Friday. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active. If not, Baltimore will be down to WRs Willie Snead, Miles Boykin, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. But HC Freddie Kitchens wouldn't say whether Higgins will play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to insider Scott Petrak. Higgins operated as Cleveland's #3 WR in Week 1, but WR Antonio Callaway is in the mix now. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are the only Browns who should be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
