Colts' Robert Turbin: Suffers ugly arm injury Monday
Robert Turbin, RB, IND
10:42 PM
News: Turbin sustained a left arm injury late in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game against the Titans and did not return, Mike Chappell of of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.

Turbin's left arm was twisted underneath him as he was tackled lunging for a first down in what looked to be an ugly injury. No official announcement has been made at this point, but the 27-year-old went straight to the locker room and did not return Monday. The injury occurred within the final three minutes of the game so specifics may not be available on the injury until Tuesday, but the Colts will provide updates as information is available.

Shaun Draughn: Works out with Saints

News: Draughn had a workout with the Saints on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle

Draughn dealt with an ankle injury in the offseason and was released by the Giants at roster cutdowns in September. The Saints did just trade Adrian Peterson to the Cardinals so the workout makes sense, but barring an injury, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara likely have a stranglehold on the Saints backfield snaps, even if New Orleans has further interest in Draughn..

LeShun Daniels
LeShun Daniels: Released from Chargers' practice squad
LeShun Daniels, RB, LAC
6:45 PM
News: The Chargers released Daniels from their practice squad Monday.

Daniels found his way to the Chargers' practice squad last week after failing to secure a spot with the Patriots during camp. The undrafted rookie from Iowa will now be forced to look for a new opportunity.

Matt Jones
Colts' Matt Jones: Inactive Monday
Matt Jones, RB, IND
6:17 PM
News: Jones will not participate in Monday's game against the Titans as the result of a coaches decision.

Jones, who was inactive last week with a knee issue, was able to log full practices throughout the week. Thus, given the full health of Frank Gore, Marlon Mack, and Robert Turbin, it is likely that Jones is just receiving a healthy scratch.

Zach Zenner
Lions' Zach Zenner: Lays goose egg in New Orleans
Zach Zenner, RB, DET
4:22 PM
News: Zenner rushed once for zero yards and failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 52-38 loss to the Saints.

With the Lions down big from the get-go, Zenner saw minimal playing time on offense Sunday and was largely contained to special teams. Since he wasn't able to steal any touchdowns away from starter Ameer Abdullah, Zenner's fantasy value was predictably non-existent. His situation won't get any better if Dwayne Washington (quad) is able to return after the Lions' bye in Week 7. In fact, Zenner could revert back to being a regular gameday inactive if Washington is able to prove his nagging injury is behind him.

Latavius Murray
Vikings' Latavius Murray: Should stay involved
Latavius Murray, RB, MIN
3:50 PM
News: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer hinted that Murray will continue to have a significant role, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The wide gulf between Murray's production and Jerick McKinnon's has led to some speculation that the former Raider could essentially fall out of the offensive game plan. The Vikings seemingly aren't quite ready to take that step, but Murray needs to improve quickly or else the team won't have much choice. He's gained only 80 yards on 30 touches (three catches) in two games since Dalvin Cook (knee) suffered a season-ending knee injury, while McKinnon has piled up 245 yards and three touchdowns on 43 touches (11 catches). However, McKinnon has fumbled three times the past three weeks, after making it through the first 45 games of his career without a single fumble. His robust production nonetheless figures to outweigh the statistical oddity when the team evaluates its backfield, particularly if McKinnon stays hot in Sunday's matchup with the Ravens. Anyway you slice it, Murray is in danger of seeing his role reduced in the coming weeks.

Theo Riddick
Lions' Theo Riddick: Sees seven touches in loss to Saints
Theo Riddick, RB, DET
3:30 PM
News: Riddick ran twice for eight yards and caught five of seven targets for an additional 45 yards during Sundays 52-38 loss to the Saints.

Sunday's contest featured the sort of game script that usually falls in Riddick's favor, with the thought being that the pass-catching specialist will see added snaps when the Lions go down early and are consequently forced to throw. Yet, despite logging his most playing time of the season Sunday, Riddick was still out-snapped and saw less work than starter Ameer Abdullah. At the beginning of October, offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter chalked up Riddick's diminished effectiveness in 2017 to increased attention from opposing defenses, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. While this might shed light on Riddick's lack of production, it doesn't really explain why Cooter's been deploying the scatback less often than he did last season, when Riddick regularly logged over 40 snaps per game. Perhaps the Lions will scheme ways to get Riddick more involved during their bye in Week 7, but until we see evidence of that notion coming to fruition, it will be hard to trust him as anything more than a desperation flex play.

C.J. Spiller
C.J. Spiller: Signing with Chiefs again
C.J. Spiller, RB, KC
3:25 PM
News: The Chiefs are re-signing Spiller, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Spiller will sign with Kansas City for the fourth time in less than eight months, with the latest transaction presumably motivated by Charcandrick West's concussion. The Chiefs could deploy Spiller as a passing-down complement to Kareem Hunt in Thursday's game against the Raiders, assuming West isn't ready to play. The role likely would be temporary and doesn't seem to be of much interest for fantasy purposes. It's also possible the Chiefs simply allow Hunt to dominate snaps, given that he's proven to be more than competent as a pass-catching threat.

Analysis: 

Rob Kelley
Redskins' Rob Kelley: Returning to practice
Rob Kelley, RB, WAS
2:42 PM
News: Kelley (ankle) will resume practicing this week.

Despite having a Week 5 bye to heal, Kelley failed to practice in any capacity last week. A return to the practice field doesn't ensure he'll be ready for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, but it's at least a step in the right direction. Kelley will have an extra day to get ready with the Redskins playing on Monday Night Football, facing an Eagles defense that has limited running backs to 2.9 yards per carry this season.

Analysis: 

James White
Patriots' James White: Catches four passes in Week 6
James White, RB, NE
11:45 AM
News: White ran three times for 23 yards and caught four of his seven targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

White was on the field for 29 of a possible 68 snaps on offense Sunday, a workload matched by fellow RB Dion Lewis, who logged a team-high 11 carries Sunday, while Mike Gillislee ran the ball 10 times. Because White is averaging 3.8 carries per game, White's fantasy value hinges on his involvement in the passing attack, which can be significant, depending on game flow. Through six outings, White has hauled in 33 of his 42 targets for 252 yards.
