Adam Shaheen TE MIA Knee 1.2 LP LP LP Q

Mario's Take: DeVante Parker is missing his second consecutive game with shoulder and hamstring issues. The positive is that he wasn't placed on the injured reserve, so he should be close to returning by next week.

Preston Williams has been limited all week, but I expect him to play in Week 6.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 47. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Cincinnati Bengals @ Detroit Lions (+3.5)

Jamaal Williams RB DET Hip RB29 9.7 LP DNP LP Q

Mario's Take: Joe Mixon sandwiched a DNP between two limited practices. However, I expect him to play in Week 6 and return to his full workload.

D'Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams and T.J. Hockenson logged limited practices for the majority of the week. Don't worry — I expect them to play to in Week 6.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 47.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Kansas City Chiefs @ Washington Football Team (+6.5)

Mario's Take: Tyreek Hill was a DNP all week until Friday due to a knee injury. He got in a limited session Friday, so I expect him to play in Week 6.

Terry McLaurin was a late add to the injury report, missing practice on Friday due to a hamstring issue. Coach Rivera said it was out of caution. I think he plays, but he is at high risk of aggravating his hamstring issue.

Dyami Brown was limited all week with a knee issue, but I believe he will be ready for Week 6.

Curtis Samuel has been ruled out after aggravating his groin injury. I expect him to miss multiple weeks.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 55.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 43.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears (+4.5)

Mario's Take: Allen Robinson II was a DNP Wednesday and Thursday but a limited participant Friday. I expect him to play in Week 6.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 44. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.

Mario's Take: Sammy Watkins has been ruled out for Week 6 with a hamstring issue. I expect him to miss a couple of weeks.

Mike Williams has been a DNP all week with a knee injury. I don't think he'll be ready to suit up in Week 6. However, he won't miss much time if he does miss out this week.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 52. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Los Angeles Rams @ New York Giants (+9.5)

Mario's Take: Kadarius Toney has been a limited participant all week, and I believe he will be good to go for Week 6.

I expect Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton to return to action this week.

Saquon Barkley suffered a nasty lateral ankle sprain in Week 5. He has been ruled out for Week 6, and I expect him to miss several weeks.

Kenny Golladay has been ruled out with a knee injury and I expect him to miss multiple weeks.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 48.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Minnesota VikingsCarolina Panthers (+1)

Mario's Take: Christian McCaffrey is on track to miss his third straight game with a hamstring issue. He was placed on the injured reserve Saturday, and I think they'll keep him out from 4-6 weeks.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 46. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns (-3)

Mario's Take: Chase Edmonds and A.J. Green were limited participants all week, and I expect them to play in Week 6.

Nick Chubb has been ruled out due to a calf injury. Return-to-play for a Grade 1 strain is one to three weeks.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 49.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Las Vegas Raiders @ Denver Broncos (-3.5)

Mario's Take: Melvin Gordon III started the week with a DNP due to a hip injury but logged limited sessions the rest of the week. I expect him to play in Week 6.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 44. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Dallas Cowboys @ New England Patriots (+3.5)

Damien Harris RB NE Ribs RB24 9.8 DNP LP LP Q
Nick Folk K NE Left Knee K8 8.5 LP LP LP Q
J.J. Taylor RB NE Groin RB72 1.0 (-) (-) LP Q

Mario's Take: Ezekiel Elliott has been a limited participant all week with a back issue. I expect him to play in Week 6.

Damien Harris logged a DNP Wednesday but was a limited participant the rest of the week with a rib injury. I believe he will play in Week 6.

J.J. Taylor was a late add to the injury report. He was a limited participant Friday due to a groin injury. It is never a good sign to be added to the injury report late in the week. I am pessimistic about Taylor's chances for Week 6.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 51.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Seattle Seahawks @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-5)

Mario's Take: JuJu Smith-Schuster dislocated his shoulder in Week 5. He is likely to undergo surgery to repair his labrum and is done for the season.

Quarterback Russell Wilson was placed on IR. In Week 5,  he suffered a mallet finger and a comminuted fracture-dislocation to his middle finger on his throwing hand. He underwent surgery and will miss four to six weeks.

Chris Carson was placed on IR with a neck injury. This is his second week in row being ruled out, and he will miss at least the next three weeks.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 42.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.
