  • DEN Running Back #33
    Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter from earlier in the week, Williams is not expected to miss “much if any time.” However, a missed practice session to open the week suggests he will be sidelined for at least one week. Samaje Perine will draw the start in his place and could provide RB3 numbers. UDFA rookie Jaleel McLaughlin made the Broncos’ roster after receiving some hype during the summer. He saw some extra reps after Williams went down last week and turned his 10 touches into 104 total yards and a touchdown. He will be a risky FLEX option in Week 5 but is worth stashing in deeper leagues.
  • HOU Running Back #31
    Pierce touched the ball 25 times for 108 yards in the Texans’ Week 4 win over the Steelers. Given the extreme usage he saw, it doesn’t look like the knee issue was bothering him on Sunday. The limited session is likely just maintenance for a high-volume running back. Pierce should suit up as a fantasy RB2 in Week 5 versus the Falcons.
  • LAR Running Back #23
    McVay was quick to mention that the move was precautionary, likely meaning they are simply giving Williams some rest. That likely welcome news for the young running back since he has seen the highest usage rate of any running back in the NFL, including Christian McCaffrey. McVay did say that he expects Williams to play on Sunday against the Eagles.
  • SEA Safety #33
    An independent concussion doctor ruled Adams out after he took an accidental knee to the head from Daniel Jones on a scramble. When the concussion doctor ruled him out for the remainder of the game, Adams lost his temper and had to be physically separated from the doctor and escorted off of the field. There’s no word on what the discipline could be but considering Adams didn’t make physical contact with the doctor, a hefty fine figures to be most likely.
  • SF Wide Receiver #19
    Deebo played through the pair of issues in Week 4 but was not targeted. he logged three rush attempts for six yards. Still, he was on the field for his normal allotment of routes, so it doesn’t look like the injuries are causing him any issues. Barring any setbacks, he will rank as a WR2 versus the Cowboys.
  • NE Running Back #38
    This is the first time Stevenson has been listed on the injury report this year, but a limited session to open the week isn’t particularly concerning. Stevenson has 60 carries through four weeks but has only managed to turn that into 164 yards and a lone score. Assuming he gets in a full practice session before the end of the week, Stevenson will rank as an RB2 versus the Saints.
  • DET Wide Receiver #14
    St. Brown ran every route for the Lions in Week 4, so he seemingly gutted it out through the end of the game despite getting banged up at some point. The hope will be that he can continue to play through the abdomen issue going forward, but that’s far from a given. If he can’t suit up in Week 5, the Lions could throw Jameson Williams, who is coming back from his gambling-related suspension this week, into a full-time role for the jump.
  • IND Running Back #28
    Well, if Taylor is not on the field on Sunday, it certainly won’t be because of his ankle. The full participant designation means that Taylor was not limited in any way, which would normally be a near guarantee that a player will play on Sunday. However, there have been multiple reports that the relationship between Taylor and the Colts “remains unsettled,” so his status for Sunday still remains up in the air.
  • NO Quarterback #4
    Carr played through a shoulder injury in Week 4, but he and the Saints offense struggled. Head coach Dennis Allen mentioned that Carr was able to throw more on Wednesday and “things look good in terms of where he’s at this week.” The team has to hope that Carr is able to do more this week because he was clearly not healthy on Sunday. He threw a high rate of screen passes, missed several downfield throws, and also fumbled in the fourth quarter. If he’s that limited again, the Patriots defense would make for a good fantasy play.
  • CAR Running Back #6
    Sanders was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday of last week because of a groin issue but then didn’t practice on Friday. However, he was still able to play in Week 4 and proved to be ineffective, rushing for just 19 yards on 13 carries. With the groin injury still lingering, it’s safe to assume that Sanders will suit up again on Sunday but be less than 100 percent, which should limit his effectiveness against a solid Lions defense. Panthers CB Donte Jackson (shoulder), LB Frankie Luvu (hip), DL DeShawn Williams (elbow) and OL Austin Corbett (knee) were also limited in practice.
