NFL Week 6 Fantasy Injuries

The Counselor is IN:

Here is week 6 Injury List and what I think.

WR Roy Williams (Back) - Probable -He practiced Friday. His coach stated that he looked really good in practice. He will play and is a must start.

RB DeAngelo Williams (Ankle) - Out - He is out for this week and maybe the next. Look for Foster to get a lot of carries for the Panthers.

WR Mark Clayton (Neck) - Questionable - He was added to the list on Friday. This is never a good sign. Bench him and play someone else.

TE Todd Heap (Ankle) - Probable - He was upgraded to probable today. He practiced a full practice on Friday. He is ready to start. You should be ready to start him also.

QB Chris Simms (Splenectomy)- Out - He is still out and will be most of the season. Place him on your injury list and leave him there.

QB Trent Green (Head) - Out - What does Green have in common with Aikman and Young- how about a career ending concussion. He is listed as out for at least 4 more weeks. I wonder if Green will be with Fox or ESPN the next time we see him.

RB Larry Johnson (Neck) - Probable - He practiced on Thursday and Friday. If you have Johnson, you would be crazy not to start him especially against a beat up Steelers defense.

QB Daunte Culpepper (Knee) - Doubtful - He has been ruled out for the next two weeks but is still listed as doubtful. He has started practicing. If you have been hanging onto Culpepper, you have to be asking yourself WHY?

TE Randy McMichael (Ribs) - Probable - He practiced all week. He had his best game last week. Who knew that Harrington would be helpful for McMichael?

WR Laveranues Coles (Calf) - Questionable - He should play but he did not practice fully on Friday. He hates the Dolphins so he will be on the field if he can. You might want to watch for the announcement on Sunday morning to verify that he will play.

RB Kevan Barlow (Calf) - Probable - He will play and should start. Washington stole a bunch of carries last week when Barlow only ended up with 4 carries. Washington could continue to steal carries but probably not that many. It is enough to bench Barlow.

WR Sinorice Moss (Quadricep) - Out -He is out and will remain out for some time. Moss will not be the rookie of the year or even for your team. He is worth keeping in a keeper league. Otherwise, try to get something for him.

TE Jeremy Shockey (Foot) - Probable - He practiced fully this week. Start him and reap the rewards.

RB Jerious Norwood (Shoulder)- Questionable - He did practice fully this week so he should play but he is the backup and he should remain a backup for your team unless Dunn gets injured.

WR Donte' Stallworth (Hamstring) - Doubtful - He missed all the practices this week. He will not play but it will give Baskett a chance to play. Baskett looked good last week but I would not run out and make him your starter yet.

RB Brian Westbrook (Knee) - Questionable - He practiced on Wednesday and Thursday but got Friday off. He will likely play. If you can, make him a game time decision.

WR Devery Henderson (Shoulder) - Probable - He has practiced with no problems. He is the Saints # 3 WR. This means that you should not pick him up unless you are in a huge league.

TE Vernon Davis (Fibula) -Out - He is out at least another 3 weeks. Hold onto him in a keeper league. Otherwise, cut your loses.

RB Shaun Alexander (Foot) - Out - Alexander is clearly out. Hang on while you suffer through this injury. Holmgren does not want him on the field until he is completely healed. That could be a while.

WR Bobby Engram (Illness) - Out - He has been "recently diagnosed with a thyroid condition." (Rotoworld) He is out and Branch will start in his place. Get well soon Bobby.

WR Drew Bennett (Ankle) - Questionable - He practiced on Friday. His fantasy value is iffy with Young being the QB.

RB LenDale White (Stomach) - Questionable - He has the flu and has missed practice all week. He is a game time decision. He is not a fantasy stud yet so bench him and put in a backup if you can.

K Rob Bironas (Groin) - Probable - It looks like he will play.

WR David Patten (Thigh) - Questionable - Patten is a game time decision. It should not be a decision for you. Leave him on the bench.

WR Larry Fitzgerald (Hamstring) - Doubtful - He is out and could miss 5 weeks. This sucks for your fantasy team if you have Larry. Sorry.
