After suffering a separated shoulder against Philadelphia on Sunday, Colston's chances of playing in Week 6 do not appear to be great, especially considering the Saints are on a short week, playing Thursday against the Falcons.Analysis:
Hankerson was also limited Monday after briefly departing Sunday's game with the rib issue. He ended up with only one catch for 13 yards on the day, and at this point it looks as though he could be at less than 100 percent with the Falcons playing Thursday night on a short week.Analysis:
Bryant is believed to have suffered a minor knee injury last week, but it might only delay his 2015 debut by one game. It will be interesting to see how he is used, as the Steelers made it clear during the preseason that Markus Wheaton would work ahead of Bryant in two-wide formations.
Bryant is clearly the team's second-most talented receiver, but between workload concerns and Ben Roethlisberger's (knee) likely absence, expectations for the next few weeks should be modest.Analysis:
Signed earlier in the week, Ross was merely the No. 5 wide receiver on offense, but he did return both kickoffs and punts. With Darren Waller (concussion) potentially unavailable for Week 6 against the 49ers, Ross could see a modest uptick in snaps, but he probably won't get more than three or four targets.Analysis:
Cotchery has been sidelined since injuring his ankle in Week 2, but it appears he is ready to resume playing coming out of the bye week. He will likely slot back in as either the third or fourth receiver.Analysis:
Echoing the sentiment of head coach Dan Quinn, the superstar said he expects to play through the injury. Jones appeared far less than 100 percent in the Sunday win over the Redskins, often sporting a limp or walking back to the huddle very gingerly.Analysis:
Floyd did not show any ill-effects from his concussion, but with Antonio Gates back in the mix and Keenan Allen still the top wideout, there wasn't too many balls thrown his way. He will look to have a bigger impact in Week 6 in what could be a shootout with the Packers.Analysis:
DHB tied Antonio Brown with a team-high six targets, but didn't have a reception until Pittsburgh's final drive, which culminated with Le'Veon Bell's game winning 1-yard touchdown run as time expired. His fantasy value likely takes a hit when Martavis Bryant returns to action.Analysis:
In the process, he caught both of his targets for 23 yards. For now, it looks like he has overtaken Aaron Dobson in the pecking order, though generally the team's three most reliable Fantasy options in the passing game are wide receiver Julian Edelman, tight end Rob Gronkowski and running back Dion Lewis.Analysis:
Brown was kept pretty quiet as the passing game did very little until the fourth quarter. In fact, 39 of his yards came on one play, evidencing his limited contributions. While Brown did tie for the team-lead in targets, he was held to fewer than 50 receiving yards for the second straight game.
It's clear that his production has been capped with quarterback Michael Vick filling in for Ben Roethlisberger, but he'll still aim to break his mini-slump in Week 6 against the Cardinals.Analysis:
