NFL Week 5 News
- Trevor Siemian (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice and is considered questionable for Sunday.
- Jacob Tamme (hip) practiced in full on Thursday and will be out there this weekend.
- Latavius Murray is battling through turf toe and is considered questionable for Sunday. If he is unable to suit up, look for the Raiders to use a running back by committee approach.
- Kenny Britt (thigh) did not practice on Thursday and is considered questionable for Sunday.
- Eric Decker (shoulder) is doubtful to play this week.
- Rashad Jennings (thumb) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, but is still questionable for Sunday. He will most likely end up being a game-time decision.
- Arian Foster (hamstring) has practiced for two days straight and looks like he could play this week. We all know how hard it is to guess Foster’s status, so look for him to be a game-time decision.
- Eddie Royal (calf) was unable to practice Thursday and is questionable for Sunday. Kevin White has already been ruled out, so Alshon Jeffrey could have a very busy day.
- Kyle Rudolph (ribs) returned to practice Thursday and will be out there Sunday.
- Stefon Diggs (groin) was not able to practice Thursday and is questionable for Sunday.
- Matt Forte (ribs) is expected to play on Sunday.
- LeGarrette Blount (hip) was limited in Thursday’s practice and is considered questionable for Sunday.
- Antonio Gates (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice and is hopeful to play on Sunday.
- Eric Ebron (knee) will not play on Sunday.
- Dez Bryant (knee) did not practice Thursday, and my guess is that he’s out again this week. Look for Brice Butler to draw another start.
- Tom Brady (suspension) is back and ready to attack!
- Julian Edelman (foot) was added to the injury report on Thursday and is questionable for Sunday.
- Demaryius Thomas (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, but is expected to continue to play through the injury.
- Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, but no need to panic — he’ll be out there Sunday.
Odell Beckham Jr.
NYG @ GB
I’m not really sure if Beckham will be a “chalk” or “contrarian” play this week, but I do know I like him quite a bit. Yes, he had an awful Week 4 and has taken quite a beating for the his on/off-field antics, but I’m looking for him to bounce back. He’ll be going up against a Packers’ secondary that has struggled without Sam Shields. They have given up the 3rd-most fantasy points to wideouts this season, so there’s no better way for OBJ to hush his haters!
It will be interesting to see his ownership percentages this week on DraftDay, but he’s got a nice price tag and has huge upside.
BAL VS WAS
Yes, Kenneth Dixon will be back for the Ravens this week, but I don’t see him having a big role. He’ll be playing his first game this season, so look for him to be on some sort of snap-count. So with Dixon on a snap-count and the Ravens releasing Justin Forsett earlier this week, look for Terrance West to get the bulk of the carries.
Not only has he been productive with the touches he’s gotten out of the backfield (4.3 yards per carry), but he also draws a cupcake matchup against the Redskins. In the first four weeks of the season, no defense has allowed more rushing yards than the Washington Redskins, so expect the Ravens to rely heavily on their run-game this Sunday.
SD @ OAK
A lot of people around the industry have been chattering it up about Derek Carr, but where’s the love for Mr. Rivers? I know this Chargers’ defense is banged up and has a lot of holes, but the Raiders haven’t been any better on that side of the football. They have given up the third-most fantasy points this season to opposing quarterbacks, as well as the most yards in the air. Everyone will be all over Carr and Brady this weekend, which makes Rivers an excellent GPP play.
