Sunday night game

Sammy Watkins, WR, KC: Hamstring -- OUT
Impact: Mecole Hardman has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Demarcus Robinson/Byron Pringle could end up playing on 3-WR sets.

Jalen Richard, RB, LV: Chest -- OUT

4 p.m. ET games


Drew Lock, QB, DEN: Ribs -- Active
Impact: Practiced all week, so was fully expected to start, even at less than 100%.

Noah Fant, TE, DEN: Ribs -- Active
Impact: Also practiced enough during the week that a start was to be expected.

Allen Lazard, WR, GB: Abdomen -- Active
Impact: Malik Taylor could be in the mix if he can't finish the game.

Darrius Shepherd, WR, GB: Shoulder -- Active
Impact: Equanimeous St. Brown might not get another chance to showcase his skills.

Jack Doyle, TE, IND: Concussion -- Active
Impact: Even so, Mo Alie-Cox will likely be the best TE option for fantasy purposes in Indianapolis.

Tyrod Taylor, QB, LAC: Ribs -- Active
Impact: Not that there's any QB controversy here, as Justin Herbert has played very well. Still, it's worth noting that Taylor has finally been given a clean bill of health.

Irv Smith Jr., TE, MIN: Groin -- Active
Impact: Kyle Rudolph had just five targets with Smith out last week.

Sam Darnold, QB, NYJ: Shoulder -- Inactive
Impact: Joe Flacco will continue to start for the Jets.

Sam Ficken, K, NYJ: Groin -- Active
Impact: Sergio Castillo has missed just one of 11 kicks while filling in, but he's the one who sits this week.

DeShawn Williams, DT, DEN: Ankle -- Active

Bryce Callahan, CB, DEN: Illness -- Active

1 p.m. ET games


Teddy Bridgewater, QB, CAR: Knee -- Inactive
Impact: It's P.J. Walker who will start at quarterback and take all the snaps.

Christian McCaffrey, RB, CAR: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: Mike Davis' run as the Panthers' No. 1 RB continues for at least one more week.

Joe Mixon, RB, CIN: Foot -- OUT/IR
Impact: May well miss the remainder of the season. Giovani Bernard to take over the Bengals' backfield.

Matthew Stafford, QB, DET: Thumb -- Active
Impact: Was always expected to start, but as you can see below, his offensive options will be limited.

D'Andre Swift, RB, DET: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson will split carries.

Danny Amendola, WR, DET: Hip -- OUT
Impact: Marvin Jones Jr. will handle the Lions' No. 1 WR duties ...

Kenny Golladay, WR, DET: Hip -- OUT
Impact: ... with Marvin Hall stepping in as the No. 2. Mohamed Sanu Sr. also in the mix.

Kenny Stills, WR, HOU: Back -- Active
Impact: More targets may arise for Keke Coutee/Isaiah Coulter if Stills can't play a full 60 minutes.

Gardner Minshew II, QB, JAX: Thumb -- Inactive
Impact: Still a weekly question mark. Jake Luton has done well in his stead.

Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, JAX: Hamstring -- OUT
Impact: Keelan Cole Sr. should once again take over Shenault's workload.

James O'Shaughnessy, TE, JAX: Knee -- OUT
Impact: Tyler Eifert gets all of what should be a tiny amount of TE targets.

Damien Harris, RB, NE: Ankle -- Active
Impact: Sony Michel is off the IR, but inactive, saving Harris from being in a true committee.

N'Keal Harry, WR, NE: Shoulder -- Active
Impact: Jakobi Meyers is the only other fantasy-viable WR option on the team.

Ryan Izzo, TE, NE: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: Jordan Thomas is also around as a backup option.

Nick Folk, K, NE: Back -- Active
Impact: It would have been a surprise if he hadn't been out there when kickoff came around.

Josh Hill, TE, NO: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Jared Cook will handle TE duties, with Taysom Hill likely to step in for injured QB Drew Brees.

Adam Humphries, WR, TEN: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Kalif Raymond/Cameron Batson could see a few extra targets.

Dontrelle Inman, WR, WSH: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: Steven Sims Jr. should see his fantasy value with Inman sitting ...

Isaiah Wright, WR, WSH: Illness -- Active
Impact: ... with the same being true for Cam Sims, even as Wright suits up.

Dustin Hopkins, K, WSH: Groin -- Active
Impact: Kaare Vedvik stays on the practice squad, so Hopkins should play.
