Rams' Sony Michel (shoulder) expected to play in Week 6

Los Angeles Rams running back Sony Michel injured his shoulder in the team's Week 6 win over the New York Giants.

What It Means:

Michel picked up a shoulder injury in the win, but is expected to play in Week 7 according to head coach Sean McVay. Michel has mostly operated as a change of pace back behind teammate Darrell Henderson, but the Rams showed a willingness to let him take the reigns when Henderson missed time.

Michel rushed the ball 9 times for 42 yards in Week 6, and is averaging 10.6 rushes for 40.6 yards per game in Rams' last 5 games. While he's not an every week starter, he is one of the higher upside running back handcuffs in the league on the Rams' exciting offense. The Rams have a soft matchup in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

Titans' A.J. Brown (illness) "likely" to have snap count in Week 6

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness) will "likely" have a snap count in Week 6, CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones reports.

What It Means:

Brown was a surprise addition to Sunday's injury report with an illness, but will suit up for tonight's game against the Buffalo Bills, albeit with a potential snap count. We'll see just how judicious the Titans are with their star receiver's snaps after quarterback Ryan Tannehill's recent struggles without him.

Brown played on just 64% of the team's snaps in Week 5 after dealing with a hamstring injury earlier in the season, sitting for the team's obvious running downs, so a "snap count" shouldn't be of too much concern in a much more competitive Week 6 matchup. Our models project him for 12.8 fantasy points while FanDuel has set his salary at $6,600.

Josh Reynolds inactive for Titans in Week 6

Josh Reynolds will not be active for the Tennessee Titans' Monday night game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

What It Means:

Reynolds was a popular late-round target in the early offseason after signing with the Titans and their paper-thin receiver depth chart, but he has already fallen out of favor with the Titans despite the lack of other options in the passing game. With Julio Jones (hamstring) and A.J. Brown (hamstring, illness) back in the lineup, Reynolds will sit out Monday's contest.

Reynolds has appeared in just 3 games so far this season, catching 7 of 10 targets for 67 yards. His inactivity does more to instill confidence in Julio Jones' health than it does to open up targets for the team's other targets.

Seahawks have "no ETA" on Chris Carson's (neck) return

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team has "no ETA" for the return of running back Chris Carson (neck).

What It Means:

The Seahawks place Carson on the injured reserve ahead of their Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it's not clear when Carson, who has been diagnosed with a chronic neck injury, will be able to return. Carson is approaching droppable territory in season-long fantasy leagues without injured reserve spots.

With Carson sidelined, the Seahawks leaned heavily on Alex Collins, who himself picked up hip and glute injuries in the Seahawks' Sunday Night Football loss. Collins handled 21 touches in the loss, but could see his opportunity share dwindle with the return of Rashaad Penny from the injured reserve.

Cowboys "hopeful" Michael Gallup (calf) returns for Week 8 practices

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said the team is "hopeful" that wide receiver Michael Gallup (calf) will practice in a limited fashion after the team's Week 7 bye.

What It Means:

Gallup hasn't played since Week 1, but his return will surely be welcomed by the Cowboys after their bye. McCarthy's tone implied that Gallup wouldn't necessarily play in Week 8, but his return is approaching. The Cowboys' offense has heavily incorporated their tight ends since Gallup's injury, meaning he will have even more competition for targets in his return.

Gallup was clearly a focal point of the Cowboys' passing attack in Week 1, drawing 7 targets in just over a half of football. While it was just a single game, it is also worth noting that his average depth of target landed at just 6.0 in Week 1, indicating a potential shift in his role in the offense after posting aDOTs of over 10.0 in each of his first 3 seasons. We'll have to wait and see how Kellen Moore works Gallup back into the team's offense after the bye.
