  • Chris Olave (concussion): Left with a concussion, most likely going to leave out time. 6-10 days same old turnaround time
  • Pat Freiermuth (concussion): Freiermuth left with a concussion at finish of third quarter. Concerning as it’s his third reported concussion. I’d be expecting him to leave out subsequent week.
  • Damien Harris (hamstring): Didn’t go back within the second part with a hamstring damage. Also had one ultimate season. His Thursday observe standing will cross far about his availability.
  • Tyreek Hill (foot/quad): In a strolling boot after the sport after being stepped on. Possible mid-foot sprain, probably may just leave out 1-2 weeks. Rashod Bateman had similar damage.
  • Teddy Bridgewater (head/elbow): New protocols saved him out. Elbow will have to be positive

Fantasy Headlines

Josh Stallion, Geno-Brainer a fable QB1 ROS

Blowout of epic proportions. Josh Allen is going for over 400 yards and can have truthfully thrown for 600 yards on this sport had the Steelers fought again in any capability. But the larger information is the low-key fable QB1 standing of Geno Smith. His greatest problem for was once as opposed to a tricky NO protection. Dude diced ’em. 3 TDs and 268 passing yards. The Seahawks QB is the fable QB5 pending Monday Night Football. And he faces the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

Breece Future Hall of Famer

The Breece Hall purchase window is over. Closed. Done. He ruled carries (18 vs 10) and snaps (69% vs 42%) over Michael Carter. Except Carter scored two goal-line TDs from the 1-yard line. But Hall additionally had…100 receiving yards on 2 goals, 97 speeding yards and 79-yard catch that almost went the gap. Locked-and-loaded top-15 possibility ROS, with the excessive likelihood he finishes throughout the top-8 as his position continues to develop. He’s recently the RB7 in PPR (Monday night time pending).

Gabe “Doesn’t Command Targets” Davis

Gabriel Davis on simply 6 goals and three catches – 171 yards and a pair of TDs. Perks of being a WR hooked up to Allen enjoying each unmarried snap on offense (team-leading 84% snap percentage in Week 5). A WR doesn’t all the time wish to command a excessive goal percentage when probably the most of goals they see are of the high-value selection.

Taysom Thrill

Alvin Kamara rushed 23 occasions for 103 yards. Nearly 200 yards together with his receiving added in (6-91) But TE/QB/Superman Taysom Hill were given all THREE speeding TDs and threw any other. 9 carries for over 100 speeding yards on only a 30% snap percentage. At this level, simply throw his TE utilization/snaps/routes and so on. out the window. Never going to be constant. But the crew provides him alternatives in high-leverage spots, and he continues to ship. He’s higher than every other fringe waiver twine tight finish. He is the TE7 at the yr.
