NFL Injury Report: Tyreek Hill, Marquise Brown, Christian Kirk, Danny Amendola for Week 6

NFL Injury Report: Tyreek Hill

NFL Injury Report: Tyreek Hill

Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on their players heading into game time before Week 6. There are a lot of players on the injury report this week, even with four teams on bye.

For wide receivers, Davante Adams was ruled out on Saturday, so he will not play on Monday night for Green Bay. Sammy Watkins is doubtful, and fantasy owners should not plan on having him this week either. Others who have been ruled out include A.J. Green, DeSean Jackson, James Washington, and Tre'Quan Smith. Here are the RB and TE injuries you need to know as well.

Don't forget that there is an early London game this week (9:30 a.m. ET) so be sure to set your lineups accordingly. As always, check the inactive report before game time.

Positional Rankings: QB I RB I WR I TE I DST I K I Flex

Teams on bye: Buffalo, Chicago, Indianapolis, Oakland

Note: All times are ET and all games are on Sunday, Oct. 13 unless otherwise noted.

Tyreek Hill (shoulder), WR, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m.

Hill is a game-time decision, so fantasy owners need to keep an eye on the injury report. He will likely have to undergo pre-game testing, but if he's cleared, fantasy owners should not hesitate to put him in their lineups. The Texans/Chiefs game has shootout potential so Hill is a WR2 if active. He has the potential to be a WR1, but it is possible he'll be on a snap count in his first game back.

Marquise Brown (ankle), WR, Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m.

Following Week 5, Brown's ankle injury wasn't considered serious. However, something that is not serious should not be something that keeps said player out of practice all week. Brown missed practice all week and it doesn't look good for his availability in Week 6. The team is calling him a game-time decision, but fantasy owners should plan to keep him on their bench this week.

Christian Kirk (ankle), WR, Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons, 4:05 p.m.

Kirk missed Week 5 with an ankle injury, however, it seems like he will be active for Week 6. He is being considered a game-time decision (like many others) but Kirk at least was able to practice this week. He has one 100-yard game and no touchdowns this season, but the matchup against the Falcons is a great one. Kyler Murray is ranked high this week, and in order to get those fantasy points, he's going to need his receivers. Kirk is a WR3 if active.

Danny Amendola (chest), WR, Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers, 8:15 p.m. (Mon.)

Amendola missed Week 4 and the Lions had a bye in Week 5. After the bye, he was able to put in limited practices, but he is still questionable heading into Week 6. All signs point to Amendola playing, but he is only a WR3. Kenny Golladay is the clear No. 1, but Amendola should have a role as well. In Week 1, he had seven receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.

Kenny Stills (ankle/hamstring), WR, Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m.

Stills was able to put in limited practices this week after missing Week 5. However, he is going to be a game-time decision heading into Week 6. Even though this game has the potential to provide a lot of fantasy points, Stills is going to be tough to trust as a fantasy option. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller are the main targets, and Keke Coutee is in the picture too. Stills should remain on fantasy benches for another week regardless of if he's active.

Randall Cobb (back), WR, Dallas Cowboys at New York Jets, 4:25 p.m.

Cobb has been active in each game so far this year, although he has an injury history. Cobb hasn't put together a great season (no more than five receptions or 70 yards in a game yet). He hit the injury report on Thursday with a back issue and he didn't practice. He also didn't practice on Friday. This should be enough for fantasy owners to keep Cobb on the bench even if he is active.
