  • PIT Quarterback #8
    Pickett is dealing with a muscle strain and a bone bruise suffered in a Week 5 loss to the Texans. However, head coach Mike Tomlin would not rule him out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens, and Pickett being on the field on Wednesday is certainly a good indication that he will try and give it a go. Still, the Steelers have a bye in Week 6, so they likely won’t push Pickett if he doesn’t feel ready after the next couple of days of practice. Yet, Pickett himself said after practice, “I’ll be ready to go.”
  • BAL Wide Receiver #7
    Bateman missed Week 4 with the hamstring issue but appears on track to return in Week 5. Before going down with the hammy injury, Bateman was running as a distant third receiver in the Ravens’ rotation. Even if he is active for Week 5, fantasy managers can look elsewhere for a FLEX option.
  • BAL Running Back #34
    The Ravens’ have opened Mitchell’s 21-day window to return from injured reserve. The UDFA from East Carolina made Baltimore’s 53-man roster but was placed on injured reserve shortly after. With J.K. Dobbins out for the year, Baltimore will take any reinforcements they can get at running back. Mitchell is worth a stash in deep leagues, but it could still be another week or two before we see him take the field for the first time.
  • BAL Cornerback #44
    It will likely be a limited session for the veteran corner, but it’s a good sign for his Week 5 availability. Humphrey has earned a Pro Bowl nod in three of the past four years but is one of the many Baltimore players who have been unable to play because of an injury this season. Getting Humphrey back in the fold will be a notable boost for a secondary that has been decimated by injuries.
  • BUF Linebacker #40
    Miller has been out since last season with a torn ACL and was put on the PUP list to start the year. He’s eligible to be activated, but the Bills will obviously want to see how he responds to practice before making a final decision. Miller himself has said that he wants to play this weekend in London, and the Bills would love to have him back. With cornerback Tre’Davious White lost for the season, the Bills will need to rely even more on their pass rush for the remainder of the season.
  • WAS Wide Receiver #1
    Dotson briefly left the Commanders’ Week 4 game against the Eagles with an ankle injury but managed to return to action after a short stint on the sidelines. He would go on to snag the game-tying touchdown that sent the matchup into overtime. Dotson’s practice reps were limited to open the week, but he is good to go for Week 5. Versus a dreadful Chicago secondary, Dotson will have a strong shot at posting WR2 numbers.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #16
    Burks missed Week 4 with the knee issue. A missed practice to open the week points toward him missing another game. Chris Moore took Burks’ spot in the lineup last week but didn’t do much with the extra reps. He caught one deep ball for 44 yards. With the Titans’ offense struggling mightily through the first month of the season, it’s hard to justify holding him in anything other than dynasty leagues.
  • CIN Wide Receiver #5
    Per Bengals coach Zac Taylor, Higgins is considered day-to-day. Taylor’s comment gives Higgins a shot at suiting up on Sunday, but a fractured rib and a missed practice session to open the week suggest Higgins will be sidelined for at least one game. If the Bengals choose to sit Higgins for two games, they would also be able to rest him through their Week 7 bye. We will get a clearer picture of Higgins’ Week 5 outlook when the team releases their final injury report on Friday.
  • NYG Running Back #26
    Barkley was seen running and cutting two weeks after sustaining a high ankle sprain that the team originally downplayed as a non-serious injury. He could return for the Giants’ Week 5 game against the Dolphins. At this point, in what is likely a lost season for the Giants, there’s no point in rushing Barkley back onto the field. None of the other New York backs are fantasy viable if Barkley remains sidelined this week.
  • IND Running Back #28
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Taylor is healthy, and probably could have played two weeks ago. The question remains: Will Taylor’s frayed relationship with the Colts prevent him from taking the field in Week 5 and beyond? Taylor likely has no choice in the matter beyond refusing to play. It’s a situation to monitor. Those who have Zack Moss on their roster should sit tight for now.
