Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI: Back -- Active
Impact: Will play but not expected to shine while Andy Dalton remains the starting QB.

Marquise Goodwin, WR, CHI: Quad -- Active
Impact: Chicago's surprise receiving leader could still cede snaps to Damiere Byrd.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, CLE: Knee -- OUT
Impact: Donovan Peoples-Jones to inherit starting WR duties for at least another week.

Anthony Schwartz, WR, CLE: Knee -- Active
Impact: Limited in practice all week. Expect a bump for Rashard Higgins.

Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU: Team decision -- OUT
Impact: Watson continues his wait for a trade. Tyrod Taylor will start for the Texans.

Pharaoh Brown, TE, HOU: Shoulder -- Active
Impact: No shock to see him playing on Sunday. He should be decently involved in Houston's offense.

Parris Campbell, WR, IND: Abdomen -- Inactive
Impact: Zach Pascal will likely get the start Sunday ...

Michael Pittman Jr., WR, IND: Ankle -- Active
Impact: ... with Mike Strachan still in line for a few extra looks, even with Pittman active.

Marcus Mariota, QB, LV: Quad -- OUT/IR
Impact: If Derek Carr gets hurt, Nathan Peterman may get the call.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Toe -- OUT
Impact: It sounds like Peyton Barber will share lead back duties with Kenyan Drake.

William Fuller V, WR, MIA: Personal -- OUT
Impact: DeVante Parker will be the No. 1 WR in Miami until Fuller returns ... if he returns.

Preston Williams, WR, MIA: Knee -- Active
Impact: Jaylen Waddle and Albert Wilson would be the biggest beneficiaries if he can't play a full 60 minutes.

Jonnu Smith, TE, NE: Hip -- Active
Impact: He's going to play, but Hunter Henry might still outperform him.

Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, NE: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: With Bill Belichick, one fumble is all it takes to fall out of favor. J.J. Taylor should take over Stevenson's limited workload.

Quinn Nordin, K, NE: Abdomen -- OUT/IR
Impact: Veteran Nick Folk will handle kicking duties going forward.

Jamison Crowder, WR, NYJ: Groin -- Inactive
Impact: Limited in practice all week, so it's not a huge surprise to see him sitting.
