NEWS: Dolphins declared QB Ryan Tannehill inactive for Week 6 against the Bears.
Smitty’s Take: He has a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. Brock Osweiler gets the start, which makes the Bears DST a strong, strong play this week.
NEWS: According to fresh reports, Dalvin Cook is out for Week 6.
Smitty’s Take: Get him out of lineups. He’s been a huge disappointment so far, but if you don’t own him, it’s a solid buy-low opportunity right now, as his owners are surely frustrated. He still has top 6-10RB appeal once healthy. When will he be healthy? Tough to say, but it sounded like he was close to being active this week, so we say buy-low if the price is right. If you own him, we suggest holding and waiting out this situation.
NEWS: According to reports, Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) will both play in Week 6 against the Broncos.
Smitty’s Take: Both should be in line-ups and ready to rumble. Start ’em if you got ’em!
NEWS: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Texans QB Deshaun Watson (chest) is expected to play Week 6 against the Bills.
Smitty’s Take: His availability was never in doubt. Expect another 300-yard outing in this one, with 2-3TDs.
NEWS: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Bucs’ TE O.J. Howard (knee) is expected to play Week 6 against the Falcons.
Smitty’s Take: He’s a strong start.
NEWS: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is not expected to play Week 6 against the Panthers. Chris Thompson is also not expected to play.
Smitty’s Take: All these injuries leaves Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs ready for extra action in this one, but it also makes the Redskins a likely loser in this contest.
