Tannehill Looking Doubtful
Per ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, it is looking unlikely Ryan Tannehill plays in Week 6. A shoulder issue has lingered all week and is likely to lead us to the next phase of the Brock Osweiler experience. Tannehill was not a viable streamer against one of the league’s elite defenses in any event, and if you’re toying with the notion of starting Osweiler outside of deep Superflex leagues, retire immediately.
Thompson, Crowder won’t play
Chris Thompson and Jamison Crowder will miss this weeks game against the Panthers. Thompson has been limited this week with rib and knee issues and Crowder has a hurt ankle. Josh Doctson missed last week and is questionable while Paul Richardson left last week’s game and is also injured. The Panthers are getting Washington at the right time.
It’s a little surprising, but Brandin Cooks has cleared protocol, put in practice, and will play this week. He took a huge hit last week that knocked him from the game and that was his 2nd major hit / concussion in the calendar year. He quickly recovered from this one, however, and will play this week.
Kupp to play
As expected, Cooper Kupp has cleared protocol, put in practice, and will play this week.
Olsen Questionable, likely to play
Things are looking up for Greg Olsen who has put in some limited work this week. His matchup against the Washington professional football team is middle of the pack, and he may be on a snap count. I’d be hesitant starting him this week, but given the TE landscape, you may not have a better option.
Mack to start
Marlon Mack is set to return once again this week. We will see if it happens or how productive he will be, but he should get every opportunity to be the lead dog as neither Jordan Wilkins nor Nyhiem Hines could steal it while he was out. Hines still has every week PPR flex upside though.

Heyward-Bey is still in the league
No seriously I had no idea either. So when I saw that he was out with an ankle injury this weekend I was left asking “was he in any game this season?” Anyway proceed as normal
Freeman officially out week 6
The season of disappointment for Freeman owners continues as he has been officially ruled out with both a bone bruise in his foot and a groin injury. I you are lucky enough to have Tevin Coleman he should be in all lineups in what should be a high scoring game.
Dalvin Cook Gets In Full Practice
A full participant in Thursday’s practice, Dalvin Cook looks on track to return from a hamstring injury which limited him to one half of work against the Rams and a missed game against the Eagles. The Cardinals are a juicy matchup given their overall incompetence has led to them yielding the most rushing attempts against in the league at 174, 28 more than second place Miami. While it is unlikely Cook returns to a massive, 20 plus touch role in his first week back, you’d have to roster a pretty loaded backfield to sit Cook.
Allison clears protocol
Geronimo Allison has cleared concussion protocol but Randall Cobb still has yet to practice. If Cobb doesn’t go again, Marquez Valdez-Scantling should get another start. Allison being active may close the door a little bit on Equanimeous St. Brown. Both Allison and MVS have an average matchup this week against the 49ers. Allison should see Richard Sherman who has only been thrown at 8 times in 4 games, MVS should get a more favorable slot matchup.
Devonta Freeman Now Battling Foot Injury
After merely a one week return following a three week absence, Devonta Freeman is again ailing, this time with a foot injury. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported Freeman’s status for Sunday’s contest against Tampa Bay is very much in doubt. Another absence for Freeman would slot Tevin Coleman right back in as a RB2, and make Ito Smith a hail mary flex play. While this injury appears fairly short-term for Freeman, it is another setback for a preseason RB1 who has provided owners nothing.
