  Texans | Darren Fells leads team in yardage    Sun Oct 13, 07:14 PM

Houston Texans TE Darren Fells registered six receptions for a team-high 69 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Fells was tough to bring down after the catch and has been a strong fantasy play half of the time with one or zero catches in the other three games. He's squarely in streamer consideration against the Colts next week.

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews registered six receptions for 99 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. No other Baltimore receiver had more than three receptions.

Footballguys view: Andrews was the main man in the pass offense with Marquise Brown sidelined. He'll be a very strong play against the Seahawks next week.

  Browns | Ricky Seals-Jones finds end zone    Sun Oct 13, 05:57 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Ricky Seals-Jones successfully converted three of his six targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Seals-Jones will be a viable desperation play while David Njoku is out, but he can't help fantasy teams while he's on his bye next week.

  Eagles | Five receptions for Dallas Goedert    Sun Oct 13, 05:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught five passes for 48 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Goedert is at least in the desperation play zone now with a high target volume in a play from behind game script. He mostly remains on our radar because of his Zach Ertz injury upside.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz finishes with 54 yards    Sun Oct 13, 05:43 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught four passes for 54 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Footballguys view: Ertz was outproduced by Dallas Goedert in PPR leagues in what could be the start of a trend. The whole offense should be helped when Desean Jackson returns, but Ertz has been underachieving and not delivering on his expensive ADP.

  Saints | Jared Cook finds end zone    Sun Oct 13, 04:26 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 37 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted three times during the game.

Footballguys view: Cook is back in streaming consideration with another touchdown on a perfect throw from Teddy Bridgewater. Next week is a poor matchup against Chicago, but if you hold Cook you'll get the Arizona matchup in Week 8.

  49ers | George Kittle will be in uniform    Sun Oct 13, 02:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

Footballguys view: Leave Kittle in, but know that a zero and re-injury of his groin is the floor today.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly ruled out    Sun Oct 13, 02:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (Achilles) suffered an Achilles tendon injury during the Week 6 game and will not return.

Footballguys view: Dissly has already had a serious knee injury. He had been a fantasy revelation this year at a tough position and Russell Wilson will miss him if this is an extended absence.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard quiet in Week 6    Sun Oct 13, 02:17 PM

  Panthers | Greg Olsen finishes with 52 yards    Sun Oct 13, 01:29 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught four passes for 52 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Olsen showed signs of life for fantasy, but didn't post half of the receiving yards he had in the first matchup with Tampa. He's a low ceiling option with Kyle Allen who is not an essential hold through the bye.

The Houston Texans have declared QB Alex McGough, WR Kenny Stills, RB Taiwan Jones, CB Johnathan Joseph, TE Logan Paulsen, LB Tyrell Adams and OL Greg Mancz inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: The Texans secondary is already a bottom half of the league unit and they will be without one of their better corners now that Joseph is inactive.

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry could play in Week 6    Sun Oct 13, 09:00 AM

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) appears to be trending toward playing in Week 6's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Henry is worth a look if you don't have a viable option but still carries a lot of risk of low usage and effectiveness in his first game back.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham not on injury report    Sat Oct 12, 05:02 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 12, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: The veteran is just likely getting some rest. The Packers play the Lions on Monday night and Graham is a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in Week 6.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson questionable    Sat Oct 12, 04:49 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs want Hockenson to explode like he did in Week 1 against the Cardinals. There hasn't been much production since his 6-catch, 131-yard (and a touchdown) debut. Hockenson is a TE2 for Fantasy GMs on Monday night against the Packers.

  Chargers | Jason Moore added to active roster    Sat Oct 12, 04:27 PM

  Redskins | Jordan Reed placed on IR    Sat Oct 12, 01:37 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on Saturday, Oct. 12, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a concussion. In a corresponding move, S Jeremy Reaves was activated from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Reed has a chance to return later in the year but there may not be much of a reason to with the team in a massive rebuilding mode. With Vernon Davis (concussion) banged up and missing the game against the Dolphins in Week 6, Washington turns to Jeremy Sprinkle at the tight end position.

  49ers | George Kittle expected to play    Sat Oct 12, 01:28 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is listed as questionable with a groin injury, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said he expects Kittle to play in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Even though he's a little banged up, Fantasy GMs should be starting Kittle. He's the type of player who can have a big game when he's not 100 percent. The Rams have an inconsistent defense and they will be missing LB Clay Matthews and CB Aqib Talib on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: The team has said they expect Kittle to play but it's probably best to roster another tight end if he is the only option on your roster.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, but has been ruled out for Week 6. CB Jalen Ramsey (back) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. DE Lerentee McCray (oblique) fully participated in practice but is listed as questionable. CB D.J. Hayden (foot), S Ronnie Harrison (ankle), C Brandon Linder (non-injury), DE Calais Campbell (non-injury) and WR Marqise Lee (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Ramsey could be a formidable counterpart for Michael Thomas if he can go on Sunday. The team owner said he will play, so if Ramsey is inactive that will raise some questions about the state of his relationship with the team.
