Fantasy Injury Updates: Latest News on Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Nick Chubb, More Affecting Week 6 RB Rankings


Running backs Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Nick Chubb, Chris Carson and Damien Harris are all candidates for “questionable” heading into Week 6, and with such a star-studded group of ball carriers, we should be paying close attention. There is a chance that five handcuffed runners will move up the Week 6 RB rankings, so the impact from each of their statuses could be significant. We’ve got all the latest news – and how it might affect your fantastic start and seat decisions – in our latest round of injury updates.

Christian McCaffrey injury update

McCaffrey (hamstring) given a 50/50 chance to play Minnesota in Week 6, according to Matt Rhule. We will take your word for it and assume this could be either way. There isn’t much to say here, as McCaffrey will obviously go in your lineups if he plays.

If it is out, Chuba Hubbard has a strong regard for RB2 with RB1 on the upside. Last week, he received 29 touches for 134 yards and seemed more than viable for fantasy. The Vikings defense seems to be improving, but with so many RBs hit and some in goodbye, you’ll probably play Hubbard if you have him and McCaffrey is out.

If he plays CMC, we have him as our RB1 in the standard and PPR leagues,

Dalvin Cook injury update

Cook (ankle) did not practice last week and was finally out in Week 5. has already gone to the practice field this week, so he obviously tends to get a real chance to play. We’ll have to keep an eye on injury reports later in the week, but he seems to be on the bright side of the “Q” tag for now heading into 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 must-start when healthy, regardless of the meeting. However, if you play, there is a risk that you will have a limited role. That said, your advantage outweighs the risk. It is our RB9 in standard and PPR leagues. If he’s out, Alexander Mattison (if he’s healthy) should come into their rosters and should be seen as a flexible worst-case consideration. If both are out, Ameer Abdullah will be the starter.

Nick Chubb injury update

Chubb (calf) I did not practice on WednesdayBut neither did Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) and a handful of other top Browns offensive players. We assume this is just a maintenance day, and both Chubb and Hunt will be ready to go, but their presence on the injury report is still worth a look. If one or the other misses Week 6, obviously the active player should have a great day against Arizona.

We do not expect either of us to be idle and classify Chubb as RB10 in standard and RB13 in PPR. Hunt is our RB18 in standard and PPR leagues.

Chris Carson injury update

Carson (neck) I don’t practice on Wednesday, so for now, it seems to be on the wrong side of “questionable”. If you do, play, it’s hard to see a path to fantasy great success. The same goes for Alex Collins if he is the incumbent. Geno Smith is a starter for Seattle and it’s hard to think Pittsburgh will respect him as a passer. His front of seven should make life difficult for Smith behind a struggling Seahawks offensive line, and they will likely carry the box, limiting Carson or Collins. We have both RBs in our fantasy busts from Week 6.

We know the running back position is tight, so you may be forced to play Carson if he’s active. If he plays, we have him as the No. 25 RB in standard leagues and in PPR leagues. His floor is much lower than that, but at least he will have guaranteed volume, which is more than most riders below him in the rankings can say.

Damien Harris injury update

Harris (ribs) I don’t practice on Wednesday after being ruled day by day earlier in the week. This will be another one we’ll have to watch all week, but after a handful of fumbles this season, his fantasy arrow is pointing downward even as he faces Dallas. Expect Rhamondre Stevenson to get some work done either way. Brandon Bolden continues to be the pass receiver in New England.

By week 6, Harris ranks as RB24 on standard and RB28 on PPR. However, it is another type that has a lower floor. Given his clumsiness and lack of use issues in the passing game, sometimes a touchdown will be the only thing that will allow him to be a running back in the top 24 in any given week.
