Friday afternoon the NFL released the final injury report for Week Six and there is not much in the way of shocking news. Or at least nothing we should not already have expected in light of Wednesday and Thursday practice participation reports. Guys like BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Percy Harvin have been banged up enough that a questionable listing is not a surprise. Brandon Jacobs was not expected to play this week and LeGarrette Blount may be "Doubtful" but we know he will be inactive on Sunday.
For those wondering, the designations break down as follows:
Out: 0% change of playing
Doubtful: 25% chance of playing
Questionable: 50% chance of playing
Probable: 75% chance of playing
For fantasy purposes, you can almost always assume a probable player can be slotted into your lineup. I would be somewhat shocked if any of those Probable players ended up inactive this Sunday barring any news tonight or tomorrow. Questionable players on the other hand put you in a tough position. At least half if not more of these guys will play, but you will likely find yourself waiting on a "game-time decision" for most of them. It is not a problem for 1:00pm ET starts, but the 4:05 and 4:15pm ET starts, it can become a pain in the butt setting your lineup. For those I simply suggest trying to slot them into your flex position (if you have one) so you have some flexibility between running backs and wide receivers (and maybe even tight ends).
This Sunday we'll have final updates for all of these players so check back then. And of course, feel free to tweet us @sbnationfantasy with any sit/start questions you might have.
