1 p.m. ET games


Mark Andrews TE BAL: Foot — Questionable
Impact: Andrews says he’s feeling good and is ready to play.

Devin Singletary RB BUF: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: Practiced on Friday, so signs point to his playing.

Tyler Kroft TE BUF: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Dawson Knox could shine for the second straight week.

Cam Newton QB CAR: Foot — OUT
Impact: Kyle Allen will start until the veteran is ready.

Rashard Higgins WR CLE: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Damion Ratley would jump to No. 3 if Higgins sits.

Matthew Stafford QB DET: Hip — Questionable
Impact: Expected to play, but you may want to steer clear of Lions WRs, just in case.

Danny Amendola WR DET: Chest — Questionable
Impact: Tom Kennedy promoted from practice squad. Not a good sign.

T.Y. Hilton WR IND: Quad — Doubtful
Impact: Looking unlikley to play. Deon Cain/Chester Rogers get bumps.

Damien Williams RB KC: Knee — OUT
Impact: LeSean McCoy will start. Darrel Williams to spell.

Tyreek Hill WR KC: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Mecole Hardman again an interesting flex pick for fantasy.

Justin Jackson RB LAC: Calf — OUT
Impact: Austin Ekeler will be No. 1 RB, though Melvin Gordon is expected to have a handful of touches.

Travis Benjamin WR LAC: Hip — Doubtful
Impact: Geremy Davis would see increase in targets as clear No. 3.

Mike Williams WR LAC: Back — OUT
Impact: Andre Patton signed to provide extra WR depth.

Virgil Green TE LAC: Groin — OUT
Impact: Sean Culkin potentially in the mix for very limited targets.

Hunter Henry TE LAC: Knee — OUT

Impact: Ty Long continues to fill in for the Chargers.

Allen Hurns WR MIA: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Jakeem Grant gets some extra value, for what that’s worth.

Impact: Sony Michel might get more touches this week.

Julian Edelman WR NE: Chest — Questionable
Impact: Making the trip to Buffalo, so he’s expected to play.

Matt LaCosse TE NE: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: Ryan Izzo starts if LaCosse can’t go.

Impact: Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler need to step up.

Dwayne Harris WR OAK: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Trevor Davis could be a deep-league surprise.

Terry McLaurin WR WAS: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: Looking likely to play, but may see limited snaps. Trey Quinn could benefit.
