Backers Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Nick Chubb, Chris Carson and Damien Harris are all “questionable” candidates heading into Week 6, and with such a star-studded group of backers, we should be very careful. . It’s possible that five handcuff ball carriers will climb the RB in Week 6 rankings, so the impact of each of their statuses could be significant. We’ve got all the latest news – and how it might affect your fantasy, start, sit down – in our latest round of injury updates.

Christian McCaffrey Injury Update

UPDATE: CMC was absent from the portion of the Panthers’ practice that was open to the media, but we’re not sure if that means anything at this time. Stay tuned here.

UPDATE 2: McCaffrey has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game.

McCaffrey (hamstring) received a 50/50 shot to play Minnesota in Week 6, according to Matt Rhule. We’re going to take his word for it and assume it could go both ways. There’s not much to say here, as McCaffrey obviously comes into your lineups if he’s playing.

If he’s out, Chuba Hubbard has strong RB2 consideration with RB1 on the rise. Last week he received 29 touches for 134 yards and looked more than viable for fantasy. The Vikings’ defense seems to be picking up shape, but with so many RBs hit and some on a bye, you’ll likely play Hubbard if you have it and McCaffrey is out.

If CMC is playing we have it as RB1 in standard and PPR leagues,

Dalvin Cook Injury Update

UPDATE: Cook is not on the Vikings’ final injury report, which means he’s ready to take on the Panthers.

Cook (ankle) didn’t train last week and was ultimately out in week 5. However, he’s already taken the training ground this week, so he clearly tends to have a real shot to play. . We’ll have to keep an eye out for injury reports later in the week, but he looks to be on the positive side of the “Q” tag for the time being ahead of a game against Carolina.

The Panthers have been strong against the run with the exception of their game against the Cowboys, but Cook is a fixture when he’s healthy, whatever the game. If he does play, however, there is a risk that he will play a limited role. That said, its benefit outweighs the risk. He is our RB9 in the Standard and PPR leagues. If he’s out, Alexander Mattison (if he’s in good health) should be a part of your rosters and should be seen as a flexible consideration at worst. If both are absent, Ameer Abdullah should be the starter.

Nick Chubb Injury Update

UPDATE: Chubb is officially OUT for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

Chubb (calf) didn’t train on Wednesday, but neither did Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) and a handful of other important Browns offensive players. We’re assuming this is just a day of maintenance, and Chubb and Hunt will be good to go, but their presence on the injury report is still worth watching. If either one misses Week 6, the active player would obviously have a huge day against Arizona.

We also don’t expect to be inactive and classify Chubb as RB10 as standard and RB13 as PPR. Hunt is our RB18 in the Standard and PPR leagues.

Chris Carson Injury Update

Carson (neck) hasn’t trained on Wednesday, so for now he seems to be on the wrong side of “questionable”. If he does, play it hard to see a path to great fantastic success. The same goes for Alex Collins if he is the starter. Geno Smith is starting for Seattle, and it’s hard to think Pittsburgh will respect him as a passer. Their first seven should make life difficult for Smith behind a struggling Seahawks offensive line, and they’ll likely load up the box, limiting either Carson or Collins. We have both RBs in our Fantastic Week 6 Busts.

We know the RB position is rare, so you might be forced to play Carson if he’s active. If he plays we have him as RB # 25 in standard leagues and in PPR leagues. His floor is much lower than that, but at least he’ll have guaranteed volume, which is more than most of the full-backs below him in the leaderboards can tell.

Damien Harris injury update

Harris (ribs) did not train on Wednesday after being judged overnight earlier in the week. It’ll be another one we’ll have to watch out for throughout the week, but after a few breakaways this season, his fantastic arrow is pointing down even as he faces Dallas. Expect Rhamondre Stevenson to find work anyway. Brandon Bolden remains the pass catcher in New England.

For week 6, Harris ranks RB24 in standard and RB28 in PPR. He’s another guy who has a lower floor, though. Given his trial and error issues and lack of use in the passing game, sometimes a touchdown will be the only thing that gets him into the top 24 running backs in any given week.
