Julio Jones Injury Update

After not training at all last week, Jones (hamstring) took up the practice field on Wednesday ahead of the Monday night game against Buffalo. The fact that he is training bodes well as the Titans take it slow with his recovery. He’s been struggling with soft tissue injuries for the past few seasons so we knew he would be a candidate to miss some games.

This game doesn’t go until Monday so we’ll have more time to see what his status is, but he hasn’t played in 20 days so the rest should come in handy. It’s hard to imagine that Tennessee would even play it if the risk of injury were high, so we can expect it to be full when active.

That said, he’ll face a tough Buffalo defense, but Tennessee should pass to keep up with Josh Allen’s offensive in this game. We rank Jones as our WR18 in Standard and WR22 in PPR. It’s hard to know which Titans passport catcher to target if Jones fails, as none of them have had steady production in his absence so far. However, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers and Josh Reynolds are the next three guys at WR.

WEEK 6 PPR RANKINGS:

Mike Williams Injury Update

Williams (knee) did not train on Wednesday and his status warrants monitoring the way forward. He is currently the No. 2 WR in fantasy football so it would be difficult to find a replacement if he were out. Baltimore usually has solid defenses but they have been burned down multiple times this year and Williams has brought too much to the table to bench when active. Jalen Guyton and Josh Palmer would fill in if he failed, but Jared Cook and Keenan Allen would likely be the biggest beneficiaries.

For week 6 we are classifying Williams as WR15 in Standard and WR18 in PPR. However, he has shown that his ceiling is as high as a top three game.

Sterling Shepard Injury Update

TO UPDATE: Shepard trained again on Thursday so he tends to play against the Rams. Darius Slayton also practiced.

Shepard (thigh) returned to training in limited capacity on Wednesday. He had a hot start to the season before missing the last two weeks but his participation in training is a good sign. The appearance of Kadarius Toney shouldn’t hurt Shepard as there is plenty to do, especially if Kenny Golladay (see below) is out. Daniel Jones (concussion) looks like he has a solid chance to play so you can confidently include Shepard in your lineups. If Jones fails, Shepard is a little riskier.

We classify him as WR33 in the standard and WR34 in the PPR leagues against the Rams.

Injury update for Kenny Golladay

UPDATE: Golladay stayed out for training on Thursday. He tends to be inactive for this game and could soon be disfellowshipped.

Golladay (knee) is likely listed as “doubtful” as the first report was from week to week. He didn’t train on Wednesday and tends to be outside. For all intents and purposes, we assume that Golladay will be out in week 6. The Rams’ defense wasn’t as good as expected and the Giants had no problem moving the ball against a strong Saints defense.

That said, when Golladay is playing it’s hard to believe he’ll be healthy, and Toney or Shepard feel like better options.
