Is T.J. Hockenson playing Week 6?

For the second straight week, Hockenson (knee) is “questionable,” but after getting in two limited practices, he’s likely to play against the Bengals. 

It’s been a slow burn for Hockenson after a hot start, but he’s still a must-play against anyone given the state of the TE position. If he’s a surprise scratch, Darren Fells would start and be a non-factor in fantasy.

Is Allen Robinson playing Week 6?

Robinson (ankle) sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but he got in a limited session on Friday and figures to be a game-time decision against the Packers. 

It’s been a disappointing season so far for Robinson, and at this point, he’s barely a WR3. However, given his upside, it’s tough to sit him, especially with injuries in the Packers’ secondary. If he’s out, Darnell Mooney and Marquise Goodwin should see more targets, with Mooney working as a borderline WR3 in PPR leagues.

Is Kadarius Toney playing Week 6?

Despite being limited in practice all week, Toney (ankle) is expected to play against the Rams.

With Kenny Golladay (knee) out and Sterling Shepard (hamstring) back, the red-hot Toney should see fewer targets than last week. However, he’s still in play as a flex given his versatility and big-play potential.
