Will DeSean Jackson play Week 7?
Doug Pederson mentioned Monday morning he is “hopeful” that Jackson could make his return from harm in Week 7, then added later that Jackson “probably” will not follow Wednesday. Jackson hasn’t performed since leaving Week 2’s recreation close to the beginning due to an stomach harm.
Jackson’s prolonged absence has allowed Nelson Agholor to face in because the second-most necessary receiver for the Eagles, however even that hasn’t been a ton of fantasy worth.

When will Davante Adams be again?
Adams has missed the final two Packers’ video games due to a turf toe harm. He did not follow all of Week 6, so it nonetheless might be an uphill climb for him to make a return on the brief week for Green Bay, who performs Sunday towards the Raiders.
Allen Lazard stepped up within the absence of Adams and Geronimo Allison, who left Monday’s recreation with a concussion.

Tyrell Williams harm replace
Williams missed Oakland’s Week 5 recreation in London with a foot harm, and he is had the Raiders’ Week 6 bye to try to get better. Williams is “progressing well,” according to The Athletic, however he’ll most likely nonetheless be questionable this week.
A Williams absence would enable us to see if the Raiders need to get newly acquired Zay Jones closely concerned within the offense. There’s most likely solely room on this scheme for one receiver to get heavy targets on high of Darren Waller. Williams and Jones are completely different receiver varieties, with Williams more of the deep risk, however Jones may make a superb first impression if he is compelled into the No. 1 WR position in Week 7.

Will Sammy Watkins play Thursday evening?
There is “optimism” that Watkins will return in Week 7 towards the Broncos, based on Ian Rapoport. He was listed as a restricted participant in follow Monday forward of the Chiefs’ Thursday Night Football matchup with the Broncos. Watkins was damage on the second play of the sport in Week 5 and missed Week 6.
When everybody’s wholesome, the expectation is that Kansas City’s receiving corps options Tyreek Hill, Watkins, after which everybody else (and naturally Travis Kelce at tight finish). In Hill’s Week 6 return, he was really the fourth-highest snapped receiver, behind Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman. Based on utilization, it seems like Robinson is the most definitely to have any fantasy relevance when each Watkins and Hill are wholesome. If Watkins does not play Thursday evening, Robinson is the most definitely to have a superb recreation moreover Hill.
