Sunday night game

No injuries of note.

Seattle Seahawks

Carlos Hyde, RB, SEA: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: Travis Homer could see a few more touches with Hyde sidelined.

Jamal Adams, S, SEA: Groin -- OUT

Quinton Dunbar, CB, SEA: Knee -- Active

4 p.m. ET games


Jakeem Grant, WR, MIA: Illness -- Active
Impact: Apart from some return yardage, there's no real fantasy value to be found here.

Jordan Howard, RB, MIA: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Healthy scratch. One of the most-dropped players over the past week can now be dropped in even more leagues.

Raheem Mostert, RB, SF: Knee -- Active
Impact: Likely to be in a timeshare with Jerick McKinnon this week.

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF: Illness -- Active
Impact: Will be in the huddle alongside QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Nick Mullens is inactive.


Larry Ogunjobi, DT, CLE: Oblique -- OUT

Karl Joseph, S, CLE: Hamstring -- Inactive

Darius Leonard, LB, IND: Groin -- OUT

Anthony Walker, LB, IND: Ankle -- Active

Shaq Lawson, DE, MIA: Shoulder -- OUT

1 p.m. ET games


Darrell Daniels, TE, ARI: Thigh -- Active
Impact: Not much fantasy value for Daniels, and he takes away value from Dan Arnold to boot.

Julio Jones, WR, ATL: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: He didn't practice all week, so this is not a surprise. Time to give Olamide Zaccheaus a gander?

Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Knee -- Active
Impact: Missed time midweek, but there was never any real reason to think he wouldn't be ready for Sunday.

Chris Moore, WR, BAL: Thigh -- Inactive
Impact: Still not ready to make his 2020 debut. Still iffy for fantasy purposes when he does return.

Marquise Brown, WR, BAL: Knee -- Active
Impact: Practiced fully on Friday and was always expected to suit up.

Nick Boyle, TE, BAL: Thigh -- Active
Impact: Even if he sees a lot of snaps, the targets simply haven't been there.

Mark Andrews, TE, BAL: Thigh -- Active
Impact: With so many names on Baltimore's injury list, most of them were likely placed there for show. Andrews will play.

Joe Mixon, RB, CIN: Shin -- Active
Impact: After such a big Week 4, it would have taken a lot to keep Mixon out of the huddle.

John Ross III, WR, CIN: Illness -- Inactive
Impact: He's been getting scratched even when healthy. Tee Higgins' performance has been stellar.

Bryan Edwards, WR, LV: Ankle -- OUT
Impact: Hunter Renfrow again enters the flex conversation.

Rico Gafford, WR, LV: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: Zay Jones could repeat last week's solid effort and is the better dart-throw pick.

Henry Ruggs III, WR, LV: Knee -- Active
Impact: Full participation late in week. Could be worth a flex flier.

Sam Darnold, QB, NYJ: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: Joe Flacco starts for what has been an underwhelming offense thus far.

Le'Veon Bell, RB, NYJ: Shoulder -- Activated from IR
Impact: After leaving early in Week 1, Bell is finally ready to return. Will split carries with Frank Gore.

Breshad Perriman, WR, NYJ: Ankle -- Inactive
Impact: Beyond Jamison Crowder, there's not a lot to see here with the Jets' WR corps.

Chris Hogan, WR, NYJ: Ribs -- Active
Impact: He will compete with Jeff Smith for Week 5 looks.

DeSean Jackson, WR, PHI: Hamstring -- OUT
Impact: Greg Ward takes top WR honors for the Eagles in Week 5.

Alshon Jeffery, WR, PHI: Illness -- OUT
Impact: Still seems to be a week away from making his 2020 debut.

Dwayne Haskins Jr., QB, WSH: Illness -- Inactive
Impact: Kyle Allen was already going to start, but Haskins was asked not to come to the stadium because of a non-COVID illness.
