Every week we will break down the notable players that are on the injury report for the current week and who could replace them.
Below we will go over the injury report for Week 6. Some big names on the list, let us see who will replace them.
Buccaneers @ Panthers
No IDP relevant players on the injury report for the Bucs in week 6.
Redskins @ Dolphins
All IDP eligible players on the injury report for the Redskins were full participants in practice this week, just in time for “Tank Bowl ’19”
For the Dolphins, safeties Rashaad Jones (ankle) and Bobby McCain (hamstring/shoulder) were limited on Wednesday and Thursday but should be good to start at strong and free safety respectively!
Titans @ Broncos
For the Titans, the mighty mighty Titans…pardon the “Remember The Titans” reference) Cameron Wake (hamstring) is still not practicing during the week but based on previous weeks might still play on Sunday in Denver.
Speaking of Denver, cornerback/safety Kareem Jackson (hamstring) was limited on Wednesday, returned to practice on Thursday, and should be good to go on Sunday.
Bengals @ Ravens
Safety Shawn Williams (thigh) has not practiced at all this week for the Bengals. If he cannot go on Sunday Clayton Fejedelem would be in line to take his place. Linebacker Nick Vigil (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but barring a DNP on Friday should be safe to insert into your lineups.
For the Ravens, cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) hasn’t practiced this week just like weeks prior. Anthony Averett should be starting in his place this week. Inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor (ankle) has not practiced at all this week. In case he can’t suit up for this divisional matchup L.J. Fort in a name to keep an eye out for. Free safety Earl Thomas did not practice on Wednesday but returned to full practice on Thursday.
Falcons @ Cardinals
For the Atlanta Falcons, Damontae Kazee (concussion) returned to full practice on Thursday and is trending towards playing on Sunday in the desert. Fellow safety Ricardo Allen (knee) was limited on Thursday. If he’s ruled out Sharrod Neasman is his backup.
As far as the Cardinals are concerned, Inside linebackers Hasaan Reddick (shoulder) and Jordan Hicks (non-injury related) were limited and did not practice, respectively, so far this week. Keep an eye out on Friday to see where things stand with both of them. Backup linebackers Joe Walker and Ezekiel Turner are their available backups. Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (back) did not practice on Thursday. Keep an eye out for this as the week comes to a close. If he can’t play, backup Cassius Marsh Sr. would get the nod in his place.
Texans @ Chiefs
For Houston, starting safety Tashaun Gipson, Jr. (wrist/hip) has been a full participant in practice all week and should be fine for Sunday.
In Kansas City, defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) has not practiced all week and is trending towards not playing on Sunday. Khalen Saunders would be the back up for Jones. Linebacker Anthony Hitchens (groin) has been limited in practice all week but he should be good to go on Sunday.
Saints @ Jaguars
All IDP eligible starters are good to go for New Orleans
For the Jaguars, cornerback Jalen Ramsey (back) and safety Ronnie Harrison (ankle) were limited to practice this week. Harrison is more likely to plan than Ramsey at this point, but stay tuned to reports on Friday and Saturday to confirm.
Eagles @ Vikings
All clear on the Vikings front in terms of IDP prospects.
As far as the Eagles are concerned, cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring) hasn’t practiced all week and is trending towards not playing on Sunday. Safety Rodney McLeod (knee) was limited on Wednesday but returned to full practice on Thursday and should be good to go on Sunday.
Cowboys @ Jets
For “America’s Team”, Leighton Vander Esch has been battling an illness all week and has not practiced. If this causes him to miss time this weekend Joe Thomas would be in line to replace him in the Meadowlands.
49ers @ Rams
For the 49ers, defensive lineman Dee Ford (quad) was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Stay tuned to how he progresses to end the week.
In L.A., outside linebacker Clay Matthews is out for a few weeks with a broken jaw. Justin Lawler is his backup. Starting cornerback Aqib Talib has not practiced all week. If he can’t suit up Troy Hill would start in his place making him an attractive IDP spot start this week given the presumable tackle opportunities.
Seahawks @ Browns
No IDPs for the Seahawks made the injury report this week.
Steelers @ Chargers
No IDP relevant players have popped up on the injury report for the Steelers thus far this week.
The Chargers are without defensive lineman Melvin Ingram for a few weeks as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Issac Rochel is in line to take over duties for Ingram. Veteran linebacker Thomas Davis, Sr. did not practice on Thursday but that was not due to injury. He should be good to go on Sunday. All other fantasy-relevant players on the injury report for the Chargers were full participants in practice on Thursday and can be inserted into your lineups if necessary.
Lions @ Packers
For the team out of the motor city, defensive back Quandre Diggs (hamstring) was limited on Wednesday. Keep an eye on practice reports this week. If he can’t start Tavon Wilson would be the backup you would want to start in his place.
For Green Bay, rookie safety Darnell Savage (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday after injuring it this past weekend. Will Redmond would take over at strong safety this week if Savage can’t play on Monday night. Linebacker Za’Darius Smith (knee) was listed on the injury report but was a full participant in practice on Wednesday barring something drastic occurring between then and Friday he should be a full-go this week.
