Trey Burton, TE, IND

Week 6 didn't feature a ton of breakout performances as scoring was down, save for a few shootouts. However, Burton did notch two scores including one on a rush attempt at the goal line. He finished the day with four catches for 58 yards. Jack Doyle still played a role as a pass-catcher and did find the end zone once as well. Burton still appears to have a hold on the role of pass-catching tight end for as long as Mo Alie-Cox is sidelined.



Miles Sanders, RB, PHI

Sanders suffered a knee injury in the Eagles' Week 6 loss to the Ravens. He was ruled out after limping off the field. Sanders has already missed time this year with a lower-body injury on top of missing a handful of games in his rookie campaign. He is expected to at least miss Week 7. He topped 100 yards on just nine carries. Boston Scott should see most of the work if Sanders misses time but Philadelphia's offense isn't the most conducive for fantasy points. He'd be nothing more than an RB3 in PPR leagues.




Zach Ertz, TE, PHI

Ertz suffered a foot injury in Week 6 that held him out for the remainder of the game after he left. Later reports added that Ertz is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. He was targeted 10 times but only hauled in four balls for 33 yards. Ertz has been one of the least efficient tight ends in the league this year and can safely be dropped now that he will be sidelined for a few games. Richard Rodgers could draw the start this week and would be worth an add in very deep leagues.




Joe Mixon, RB, CIN

Mixon exited for a few drives in Week 6 with a foot injury but was able to return before the end of the game. Giovani Bernard is worth a stash in deeper leagues but only holds value if Mixon misses time.




Jonnu Smith, TE, TEN

Smith left Week 6 with an ankle injury and did not return despite being listed as questionable. Backup tight end Anthony Firkser caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter and would be in line for more scoring opportunities if Smith misses time. However, initial reports have been positive on Smith's outlook for the coming week.




Mark Ingram, RB, BAL

Ingram left versus the Eagles with an ankle injury and was ruled out shortly after. Gus Edwards got the bulk of the carries in lieu of Ingram. His 14 totes were five more than rookie J.K. Dobbins. The rookie did get four targets in a winning effort over Philly. Edwards is the preferred add off the waiver wire over Dobbins because of how reluctant Baltimore has been to let the younger back run wild. Ravens coach John Harbaugh stated that Ingram has a chance on playing after Baltimore returns from their Week 7 bye. Keep stashing Edwards if you have the roster space.




Raheem Mostert, RB, SF

Mostert faced the Rams on Sunday night and made it almost until halftime before suffering an ankle injury. It was his second game back from a knee injury he suffered at the beginning of the year. He was subsequently ruled out. Later reports have added that Mostert will likely be placed on injured reserve, sidelining him for at least three weeks. Jeff Wilson was also ruled out prior to kickoff so the 49ers finished the night with Jerick McKinnon as their lead back. McKinnon took a week off from workhorse duties but could be in line for a larger role yet again. He's worth adding in all leagues.
