The Facts: Tyreek Hill is listed on the injury report with a neck injury.
Diehards Line:Hill was initially thought to have a concussion, but after an evaluation it was determined that he did not suffer one. He is now listed on the injury report with a neck injury. It is a situation worth monitoring as the Chiefs are on a short week, but barring setbacks he should be ready for Week 7 against the Raiders.
The Facts: Marcus Mariota (hamstring) will start on Monday night against the Colts.
Diehards Line:Mariota steps into a great situation as he faces a Colts defense that is giving up the second most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. He should be treated as a QB1 this week and for those fantasy owners who took the chance by leaving him in your lineups this week, you may get paid off in a big way.
The Facts: Aaron Rodgers needs surgery on his broken collarbone, which could bring his season to an end.
Diehards Line:This is the worst case scenario for Rodgers and the Packers. If he undergoes the surgery, his season will likely be over. Brett Hundley will take over the starting duties, while Joe Callahan will serve as the backup.
The Facts: The Chiefs have brought back C.J. Spiller.
Diehards Line:Charcandrick West is dealing with a concussion and the fact that the Chiefs signed Spiller may be a good indication that West will not be available for Week 7. Spiller holds not fantasy value and will just add depth to this Chiefs backfield.
The Facts: Trevor Siemian has been diagnosed with a minor shoulder sprain, but is not expected to miss any time.
Diehards Line:Siemian briefly exited Sunday's game, but was able to play through the injury. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to go in Week 7. However, he will be without one of his best weapons, Emmanuel Sanders, which does hurt his upside.
The Facts: Emmanuel Sanders suffered an ankle sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Giants and will miss Week 7.
Diehards Line:This hurts the Broncos offense as Sanders is one of their most productive players. Bennie Fowler will likely step into the No. 2 wide receiver duties during Sanders' absence.
The Facts: Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is expected to play on Monday night against the Colts.
Diehards Line:Mariota missed last game with the hamstring injury, but is on track to play Week 6 against the Colts. If he is active, fantasy owners can treat his as a QB1 against this below average Colts pass defense.
The Facts: Golden Tate is expected to miss some time with the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 6 against the Saints.
Diehards Line:Tate finished the day with seven catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. He leads the Lions in targets, receptions, and receiving yards so this will be a big blow to their offense. Marvin Jones will be the main beneficiary of Tate's absence, while Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron should also see a boost in targets.
