Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins (shoulder) is dealing with a "pretty significant" injury, per Aaron Reiss of The Athletic. Collins injured his shoulder during Sunday's 31-21 defeat to the Browns and is technically considered day-to-day- though head coach David Culley didn't comment on the rookie wideout's status for Thursday night's game against the Panthers. Collins has caught two of four targets for 39 yards in two games played for Houston. With Danny Amendola (hamstring) also banged up, fellow wideout Brandin Cooks could see something similar to the 50 percent target share he saw in Week 2 once again versus Carolina.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle), who was listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, is active on Sunday. Linebacker Khalil Mack (foot) and defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (groin) are also active after being questionable. Receiver Breshad Perriman is once again a healthy scratch. Robinson and Darnell Mooney will continue to serve as Chicago's top two receivers, but the Bears just haven't thrown the ball enough this year to be too excited about either Robinson or Mooney from a fantasy perspective. It's especially true with rookie quarterback Justin Fields running the ball or handing off frequently. A-Rob will be a touchdown-dependent WR3/flex in this one.
Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III (hip) is expected to play on Sunday against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, according to a source. Gordon was listed on the final injury report as questionable, but it appears he'll suit up and continue to split the backfield with impressive rookie Javonte Williams. Gordon has been banged up in recent weeks, also dealing with rib and leg injuries, but he hasn't missed a game. However, he's had a season-low 11 touches in each of the last two games and hasn't been nearly as efficient as Williams. The 28-year-old will continue to get his touches, but Williams has looked much more explosive and will be the more attractive RB2/3 in Week 6.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill is expected to start at safety moving forward, with veteran incumbent Daniel Sorensen headed to a reserve role, beginning in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team. Sorensen allowed a 61-yard pass to Stefon Diggs and then a 53-yard touchdown pass to Dawson Knox in last week's loss to the Buffalo Bills. KC's defense is currently 31st in yards and 32nd in points allowed through five games. Thornhill started in the season opener as a rookie in 2019 but then tore his ACL that December and dealt with knee pain last year. Sorensen has missed 20.5% of his tackle opportunities and is giving up a 153.8 passer rating when targeted, according to Pro Football Focus. The move to Thornhill should help, but the Chiefs defense isn't a recommended streaming option on Sunday against Washington.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday against the Packers. Despite his anticipated presence in Week 6, Robinson should be viewed as a risky fantasy option, mainly after his poor statistical output during the 2021-22 campaign. The lack of stability at the quarterback spot hasn't helped things either, so fantasy managers may want to look for another option against the Packers. He will need to turn things around to get out of the doghouse, and until that happens, he should continue to be classified as a shaky option from week to week in all fantasy setups.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) is beat up, but head coach Kevin Stefanski said he looked good in practice on Friday and will get more work than usual on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with Nick Chubb (calf) ruled out. However, Hunt will also be on somewhat of a pitch count. "I don't want to kill Kareem," Stefanski said. Hunt was listed as questionable on the final injury report, but he's expected to suit up and be Cleveland's primary ball-carrier. D'Ernest Johnson and rookie Demetric Felton should have bigger roles behind Hunt, but we don't expect either of them to see enough touches to have standalone fantasy value behind Hunt. With the elevated role in this run-first offense, Hunt becomes a must-start RB1 with Chubb sidelined.
New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle) is projected to see some action during the Week 6 clash against the Rams. The 22-year-old rookie is coming off a monster Week 5 performance against the Cowboys, where he finished by catching 10 of his 13 targets for 189 yards before getting ejected late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for Toney's fantasy managers, the absence of Daniel Jones (concussion) could certainly lower his fantasy outlook, and the presence of Sterling Shepard (hamstring) could cause it to drop even more. Still, Toney does have some value as a flex option, but mostly in deeper fantasy formats.
Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift (groin) should be good to go for Sunday's showdown against the Bengals. The sophomore has been dealing with the nagging groin issue since the preseason and has been a frequent member of the injury report as a result. Jamaal Williams (illness, hip) is also expected to see the field. However, both men have things figured out, with Williams anticipated to continue to pound away on the ground and Swift to see most of his action as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. Swift's ceiling is much higher in PPR leagues, although he should be classified as a must-start across the board, regardless of format.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds (shoulder) is anticipated to suit up on Sunday against the Browns. The 25-year-old had the same designation heading into the Week 5 clash against the San Francisco 49ers but still managed to piece together a three-catch, 19-yard effort while getting six carries for 15 yards. His appeal is semi-limited to PPR formats, mainly since James Conner continues to gobble up most of the opportunities in the run game. However, Edmonds should continue to get consideration as a flex option across the board, and he could see some more targets with Kyler Murray (shoulder) possibly limited on the throwing end of things against Cleveland.
Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams (hip, illness) is expected to see the field against Cincinnati. The 26-year-old took it easy during practice during the week, participating sparingly on Wednesday and Friday while taking the day off on Thursday. Despite D'Andre Swift being considered the lead back in the Motor City, Williams has continued to produce as well on the fantasy end, currently leading the team with 244 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He has also has been a threat inside the red zone during the 2021 campaign, so fantasy managers should consider him a flex option in Week 6 versus the Bengals, at the very least.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is expected to play against Detroit on Sunday. Mixon has been dealing with a bum ankle for weeks now, and even though he saw a limited workload during the overtime loss to Green Bay, he still managed to rack up 33 yards and a touchdown off 10 carries. The former Sooner could be back to his usual workload against the Lions, so without a doubt, he should be starting in all fantasy formats.
