Week 6 is a pivotal point in the fantasy football season. If your team is struggling you’re not out of it yet but you will need to start stacking some wins. Unfortunately, week 5 featured some high-profile injuries that will shape the rest of the season. James Conner and Justin Jefferson were put on IR and will be out for at least the next four games. De’Von Achane has a knee injury and he may also end up on the IR. Below let’s highlight some other injuries that will impact the week 6 NFL slate.
Roschon Johnson – Johnson left the game against the Washington Commanders with a concussion. His status for week 6 is still uncertain but don’t be surprised if he sits. The Bears also lost Khalil Herbert to an ankle injury leaving D’Onta Foreman as the only healthy back.
Javonte Williams – Williams missed the week 5 matchup with a quad injury but it looks like he will return Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. Williams practiced in full on Tuesday which is a great sign going forward.
Travis Kelce – Kelce picked up an ankle injury in the week 5 win at Minnesota. He was able to practice on Tuesday but it was in limited fashion. With a quick turnaround and a Thursday night game, Kelce’s status is certainly up in the air.
