Team: 

Date Player
10/20/2017 Marshawn Lynch, Oak, RB
The NFL has suspended Lynch one game for making contact with an official during the Raiders' win over Kansas City on Thursday. The veteran running back will miss the team's visit to Buffalo on Oct. 29.

Analysis: The incident occurred after Oakland quarterback Derek Carr took a hard shot from Chiefs corner Marcus Peters in the second quarter, leading to a skirmish in which Lynch ran onto the field from the sidelines and pushed line judge Julian Mapp as he attempted to break up the scuffle. With the Raiders' leading rusher unavailable, expect Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington to split time against the Bills.
10/20/2017 Anthony Barr, Min, LB
Barr has cleared the concussion protocol and should play in Week 7.

Analysis: Barr has started all six of Minnesota's games, posting 31 tackles.
10/20/2017 Delanie Walker, Ten, TE
Walker (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Walker didn't practice Friday after being limited Thursday, a sign that he very possibly could sit out Week 7. Have a backup ready to stick in at tight end if Walker ends up being among the early inactives Sunday.
10/20/2017 Adam Jones, Cin, CB
Jones (back) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Steelers.

Analysis: Jones' absence could be a big problem for the Bengals with Antonio Brown on the other sideline.
10/20/2017 Andre Ellington, Ari, RB
Ellington has missed practice the last two days with a quad injury, putting his status for Week 7 up in the air.

Analysis: With Adrian Peterson having taken over the workload in the backfield, Ellington is only usable as a flex play in a PPR league because he should remain a major part of the passing game if healthy.
10/19/2017 Marshawn Lynch, Oak, RB
Marshawn Lynch ran for nine yards on two carries Thursday in the Oakland Raiders' 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Analysis: Lynch was ejected from the game with 5:48 left in the first half for making contact with an official during a scrum on the field that erupted after Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters had a late hit on Carr.
10/19/2017 Kareem Hunt, KC, RB
Kareem Hunt ran for 87 yards on 18 carries Thursday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 31-30 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He added four receptions for 30 yards.

Analysis: After an outstanding start to the season, Hunt has cooled off. He's averaged 79 rushing yards with no touchdowns over the past four games.
10/19/2017 Jalen Richard, Oak, RB
Jalen Richard ran for 31 yards on nine carries Thursday in the Oakland Raiders' 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He added four receptions for 45 yards.
10/19/2017 Akeem Hunt, KC, RB
Akeem Hunt ran for zero yards on zero carries Thursday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 31-30 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He added one reception for one yards.
10/19/2017 DeAndre Washington, Oak, RB
DeAndre Washington ran for 33 yards and one touchdown on nine carries Thursday in the Oakland Raiders' 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He added three receptions for seven yards.
10/19/2017 C.J. Spiller, KC, RB
C.J. Spiller ran for zero yards on two carries Thursday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 31-30 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
10/19/2017 Alex Smith, KC, QB
Alex Smith was 25 of 36 for 342 yards and threw three touchdown passes Thursday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 31-30 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked one time.

Analysis: Smith continued his outstanding season with his highest yardage total since the opener. He now has 15 touchdowns and no interceptions in seven games.
10/19/2017 Derek Carr, Oak, QB
Derek Carr was 29 of 52 for 417 yards and threw three touchdown passes Thursday in the Oakland Raiders' 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was not sacked. Carr added 15 rushing yards on one carry.

Analysis: We've been waiting for a performance like this from Carr all season. He hadn't thrown for more than 262 yards this year and had less than 172 over his previous three games.
10/19/2017 Mike Williams, LAC, WR
Williams is likely to get increased playing time in the second game of the first-round pick's career.

Analysis: He was sidelined for months with a back injury, but made his first NFL catch last week in the Chargers' win at Oakland.
10/19/2017 Keenan Allen, LAC, WR
Allen (shoulder) didn't practice Friday after being limited on Thursday, and he's questionable to play Sunday against the Broncos.

Analysis: Allen wasn't on the original injury report Wednesday, so this is clearly a concern and could keep him out Sunday. He leads the Chargers with 33 catches and 446 yards while hauling in one TD.
10/19/2017 Kyle Juszczyk, SF, RB
Juszczyk (back) won't play Sunday against the Cowboys.

Analysis: A 2016 Pro Bowl selection with the Ravens who signed a four-year contract with San Francisco in March, Juszczyk also sat out last week in Washington. He is a strong blocker and receiver, having caught eight passes for 80 yards and a TD.
10/19/2017 Robby Anderson, NYJ, WR
Anderson practiced in full Thursday and will play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Anderson has started all six of New York's games and had a season-high 12 targets last week.
10/19/2017 Jordan Matthews, Buf, WR
Matthews practiced for the second straight day Thursday and appears to be nearing a return for Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Analysis: Matthews has been sidelined with a fractured thumb since Week 4. He scored his first TD of the season that week after averaging 19 yards per reception on each catches in his first three contests.
10/19/2017 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette missed a third straight practice Friday due to an injured ankle and is listed as questionable, but a day earlier he said he expected to play in Sunday's game at Indy.

Analysis: Fournette may just be getting a little break after another huge workload. The rookie has been a beast the last two weeks, carrying the ball 49 times for 311 yards with three scores.
10/19/2017 Marqise Lee, Jax, WR
Lee is being slowed by a knee injury but returned to practice Friday and is expected to play Sunday at Indianapolis.

Analysis: Lee had a season high with 83 receiving yards last week against the Rams and was targeted 10 times. He only had seven balls thrown his way in the previous two games combined and has yet to score a touchdown.
