Fantasy Football: Week 6 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Picks And Busts

October 10, 2017
Some Notes:

• The New York Giants' wide receivers took a beating in Week 5. Odell Beckham Jr. is done for the year with a broken ankle. Brandon Marshall is out for the year with an ankle injury, and Dwayne Harris is out for the season with a fractured foot. Sterling Shepard also suffered an ankle injury and is day to day. 

• Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce suffered a possible concussion and didn't play during the second half of Week 5. Also, Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay will miss multiple weeks with a knee injury.

• The Houston Texans defense took two major hits, as defensive end J.J. Watt has been diagnosed with a left tibial plateau fracture and linebacker Whitney Mercilus suffered torn pectorals. Both are expected to miss the remainder of the season.

• Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was conspicuously absent during his team's game-winning drive. He is dealing with a hamstring issue.

• Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker left his team's Week 5 matchup with a sprained ankle; an MRI was scheduled for Monday.

• Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford injured his ankle and leg but stayed in the game. His status is worth monitoring.

•. Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley suffered an Achilles injury and is likely done for the year.

• Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs suffered a groin injury in Week 5.
