Injuries and Waiver Wire week 6 2022





Andy Dalton (Back) - Dalton was listed on Monday's injury report with a back injury.

Kenny Pickett (Concussion) - Pickett suffered a concussion on Sunday. He will have to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Skylar Thompson (Thumb) - Thompson injured his thumb and did not return.

P.J. Walker (Head) - Walker could not return after suffering a head injury.

Carson Wentz (Finger) - Wentz is facing a recovery time of roughly 4-6 weeks due to his fractured finger. Injured reserve is a possibility, as he is currently in LA, meeting with a hand-specialist.

Russell Wilson (Hamstring) - Wilson is getting an MRI on his hamstring on Monday.





Eno Benjamin (Foot) - Benjamin appeared on the injury report with a foot injury.

JK Dobbins (Knee) - Dobbins' knee tightened up and he did not play much in the second half of Sunday's game vs the Giants.

Deon Jackson (Quad) - Jackson left Sunday's game late with a quad injury.





Jamal Agnew (Knee) - Agnew suffered a knee sprain and is considered day-to-day.

Kendrick Bourne (Toe) - Bourne is dealing with a turf toe injury.

Marquise Brown (Foot) - Brown injured his foot late in the game on Sunday. Brown suffered a potentially season-ending foot injury Sunday, per sources. An additional update from Ian Rapoport suggests that Brown's recovery time is about six weeks. He's getting a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson before moving forward.

Randall Cobb (Ankle) - Cobb suffered a high-ankle sprain. X-Rays came back negative, but he will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Keke Coutee (Concussion) - Coutee suffered a concussion. Coutee will have to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol.





Cameron Brate - Brate was taken off the field on a stretcher and to a hospital. He is undergoing evaluation. Brate went home on the team flight, was in good spirits and had all of his follow-up scans negative, Ian Rapoport said.







Jared Goff (DET) - The Lions are fresh off their week six bye and will be getting reinforcements. RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is expected back next week, which should help the offense tremendously. Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) is also expected to be healthier. D.J. Chark's (ankle) return is looming. Rookie Jameson Williams (knee) is still a few weeks away, but he could potentially unlock things for this offense when healthy. Goff's most recent game was a disappointment, but he still has scored more than 13 fantasy points in every other game this season. With his bye week past him, Goff is an intriguing addition. He's available in 72.7% of NFL Fantasy leagues.

Also consider:
Marcus Mariota (ATL), Zach Wilson (NYJ)





Brian Robinson Jr. (WAS) - Robinson was activated off IR for his week five matchup vs the Titans, and he totaled nine carries for 22 yards. In week six, Robinson carried the ball 17 times for 60 yards and a TD. Robinson is available in 57.3% of NFL Fantasy leagues and should see increased volume as the season continues. Washington has matchups vs GB and @ IND over the next two weeks.

Raheem Mostert (MIA) - Over his last three weeks, Mostert has scored 10.10, 19.20, and 5.80 fantasy points. Week six was a disappointment for sure, but most people would probably take that type of production on their roster as a bye-week, or injury fill in. He's rostered in 33.8% of NFL fantasy leagues.

Deon Jackson (IND) - Jackson has been filling in for Colts' RBs Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines over the last two weeks. Now, Jackson's role once the starters return will be significantly reduced, but he is shown that he can be a quality handcuff. In these last two weeks, Jackson rushed for 12-42-1 rushing and 10-10-79 receiving in week six, and 13-62 rushing plus 4-4-29 receiving in week five.

Also Consider:
Rachaad White (TB), Tyler Allgeier (ATL)





Alec Pierce (IND) - Pierce scored his first NFL touchdown in week six, hauling in three receptions for 49 yards with the score. He has gone 4-3-49-1, 5-3-61, 6-4-80, and 9-8-81 receiving over the last few weeks, steadily increasing his targets, receptions, and yardage over that span. The Colts have an obvious need for a number two receiver behind Michael Pittman, and the second-round pick, Pierce is becoming that guy. He's available in 99.9 percent of NFL fantasy leagues. If you need a long-term play, take a look at Pierce.

Wan'Dale Robinson (NYG) - The Giants were desperate for receiver help, and Robinson answered the call-in week six. In his first game action since week one, Robinson scored 12.70 fantasy points, hauling in three of four targets for 37 yards and a TD. The Giants need someone to step up, perhaps it's the rookie.

Also Consider:
Nico Collins (HOU), Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE), Zay Jones (JAX)





Evan Engram (JAX) - It has not been consistent, but Engram has been quietly productive this season. He sits at TE15 on the year, despite two down games in a row in weeks three and four. He's scored 12.90 and 9.0 fantasy points over his last two weeks. He's rostered in just 22.8% of NFL fantasy leagues as of this writing.
