Will Damien Williams play week 6?

Williams has been placed on the reserve / COVID-19 list, which means that Khalil Herbert would take on the role of workhorse against Green Bay if Williams does not return two negative tests 24 hours apart. We do not know if Williams tested positive himself or if it was a close contact, nor do we know if he is vaccinated, so it is difficult to say with certainty what his situation is.

The Packers have been a mixed bag against fantasy RBs, but allowed Bengals backup RB Samaje Perine to have a solid day. Perine had 15 touches for 83 yards and a touchdown, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Herbert have a similar line, if not a better one. Herbert got 18 carries last week, and he should be in line for work without Williams in the picture. That being said, 20+ touches should be almost the expectation.

Herbert now moves to flexible consideration, worst-case scenario, but has RB2 on the upside given the showdown. It’s hard to tell after just a week of filming on him.

Tyreek hill injury update

Hill (quad) was sidelined during the Chiefs’ Wednesday and Thursday practices. As one of the best players in all of fantasy football, this is obviously great news. We don’t know much about his situation or whether he will threaten his availability for match day, but we will keep an eye on his situation.

If it is out. Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon and Byron Pringle are the three receivers who would compete for their vacant targets. Hardman would be the better option, as he caught nine of 12 goals for 76 yards against Buffalo. If Hill plays, he’s our No. 3 WR in the standard and PPR leagues against a fierce defense from Washington.

Justin Jefferson’s injury update

Jefferson (ankle) missed practice Wednesday and will be limited to practice Thursday. However, there is no indication that he has a real chance of missing Sunday’s game against Carolina. In fact, Jefferson said that wait to play against the Panthers.

If he suffers a setback, KJ Osborn should take a lot of the targets. But again, that is far from expectations. That said, Jefferson ranks as our WR10 on standard and WR9 on PPR.
