Roddy White (ATL) WR: White has been ruled out after a week without practicing. Atlanta’s bye week was a good opportunity for him to recover from ankle and hamstring injuries, but he will nevertheless miss his first game of the year on Sunday.
Steven Jackson (ATL) RB: Jackson hasn’t played since he suffered his hamstring injury in Week 2, and fantasy owners who have stuck with him thus far will not see his return on Sunday. Jacquizz Rodgers hasn’t been all too impressive in Jackson’s absence, making it worthwhile to hold on to Jackson for a late-season return.
Nate Burleson (DET) WR: Burleson had surgery on his broken arm this past Wednesday. I’m skeptical of his hopes for a Week 10 return. With Megatron’s nagging knee and Ryan Broyles inefficiency, Matthew Stafford is probably looking forward to Nate’s return even more than his fantasy owners are. He’s a solid investment for the final stretch of the fantasy season if you’re looking for a receiver.
Calvin Johnson (DET) WR: Megatron has been to three practices in-a-row this week, which is rather promising for his fantasy owners. He should be less limited against Cincinnati this week than he was last week at Cleveland when he caught three balls for 25 yards. Start him.
James Jones (GB) WR: Jones has a sprained PCL so it’s unlikely he’ll play in Week 7, despite being listed as questionable. With Randall Cobb likely out for a good portion of the year with a broken leg, one can imagine that the Packers will rush James Jones to come back. For this week, look for Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin to step up.
Eddie Royal (SD) WR: Royal will not be playing on Sunday against the Jaguars due to a toe injury. After a monster first two weeks in which he racked up five scores, he hasn’t scored or put up more than 42 yards. Consider starting Vincent Brown or Keenan Allen against a struggling Jacksonville.
Justin Blackmon (JAC) WR: Blackmon has asserted that he will play this Sunday against San Diego despite a hamstring injury. He’s gone off for 326 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks, and is a fine start at WR3 or low WR2.
Cecil Shorts III (JAC) WR: Shorts is confident that he will play against the Chargers this week. Granted, he’s still hurting from a clavicle injury, so his production may be limited. Start him as a WR3 if needed; Blackmon is in line for a better performance this week, though.
Arian Foster (HOU) RB: He skipped practice with a nagging hamstring, but indications are that he will be playing on Sunday against the Chiefs. Double-check his status before game-time, but be sure to start him pending an unexpected setback.
C.J. Spiller (BUF) RB: Spiller practiced on Friday and is expected to play on Sunday. With Fred Jackson and Tashard Choice available though, don’t be surprised if the Bills don’t rely too heavily on Spiller. Start him as an RB2, but beware of his possibly diminished workload.
Danny Amendola (NE) WR: Amendola is out for Week 7 with a concussion. Hold onto him for now, and be conscious of the opportunity this provides Julian Edelman and Kenbrell Thompkins.
Rob Gronkowski (NE) TE: Finally receiving medical clearance, Gronk is expected to play this week against the Jets. If you’ve held onto him thus far, it’s time to reap the benefits.
DeMarco Murray (DAL) RB: Murray will sit out this week with an MCL sprain. Backup Joseph Randle will handle his touches, but would be a risky start even at the flex.

Falcons wideout Harry Douglas was an able replacement for Julio Jones and Roddy White Sunday against the Buccaneers. He caught all seven of his targets for 149 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:White will return at some point over the next few weeks but he's not guaranteed to be 100 percent anytime soon. That means Douglas will be a WR2 going forward.
The Miami Dolphins have started off 3-2 after what was expected to be a brutal opening stretch of games. That's good, right? Kind of.
None of us expected them to do this well, but even the most pleasant surprises will sour if less pleasant surprises come around. After two straight losses and some of the worst blocking in the NFL, the Dolphins have come back down to earth...
