Official Sunday blackouts will begin approximately 90 minutes before the scheduled kickoff times: 8 a.m. ET for the Germany game, 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for the afternoon games.

Update often for latest information.


9:30 a.m. ET

Alec Pierce, WR, INDActive
Impact: Bears should see his normal workload in Sunday’s game against Germany.

Josh Towns, WR, INDActive
Impact: Expect Isaiah McKenzie to see more action as Downs hasn’t practiced all week and could be a “snap count” today.

Demario Douglas, WR, NEActive
Impact: He’ll play, but Kayshon Boutte is (finally!) active, so Douglas may lack targets worthy of a fantasy start.

Devante Parker, WR, NEoutside
Impact: He didn’t travel with the team, leaving the door open for Jalen Recour to get some looks.


games at 1 p.m. ET

Keaton Mitchell, RB, BALquestionable
Impact: Mitchell is expected to part ways with Gus Edwards.

Ja’Mar Chase, WR, CINquestionable
Impact: Stanley Morgan and Shedrick Jackson were both promoted from the practice squad. That’s not a great sign here. It will probably be a last minute decision.

Dee Higgins, WR, CINoutside
Impact: Trenton Irvin will be the Bengals receiver to claim off waivers.

Marquise Goodwin, WR, CLEoutside
Impact: WR David Bell is also injured, leaving Cedric Tillman in a good spot to pick up some action.

Robert Woods, WR, HOUquestionable
Impact: He’s expected back this week, but how many snaps he sees remains questionable.

Nico Collins, WR, HOUoutside
Impact: The pairing of Tank Dell and Noah Brown has impressed recently.

Damien Pierce, RB, HOUoutside
Impact: Devin Singletary excelled without Pierce in Week 9.

Search Fairbairn, K, NEWOut/IR
Impact: Matt Ammendola has signed with the team to handle the kicking duties, at least through Week 14.

Jay Jones, WR, JAXoutside
Impact: Again, this should be the “Calvin Ridley and Christian Kirk Show” for the Jaguars.

Justin Jefferson, WR, MINoutside
Impact: Although his window to return from IR has been set in motion this week, the receiver isn’t ready yet.

Jaren Hall, QB, MINoutside
Impact: Joshua Dobbs will start in Week 10 and is likely to be out for several weeks. Hall could be Dobbs’ backup once he clears the league’s concussion protocol.

KJ Osborne, WR, MINquestionable
Impact: His practice time increased as the week went by, and he cleared the league’s concussion protocol. However, that may come down to how he feels this morning.

TJ Hawkenson, TE, MINquestionable
Impact: All signs point to Hockenson not only playing, but thriving in Week 10.

Michael Thomas, WR, noHe is expected to play
Impact: Amid reports of an off-field incident involving Thomas, the Saints now plan to play him in Week 10.

Kendre Miller, RB, nooutside
Impact: Jamaal Williams is currently the primary backup to Alvin Kamara.

Traylon Burks, WR, TENoutside
Impact: Nick Westbrook-Egain moves up the Titans’ goal tree.

Ryan Tannehill, QB, TENquestionable
Impact: Active or not, Tennessee has already made a QB change to Will Lewis.


4pm ET games

James Connor, RB, ARIActivated from IR
Impact: Expect him to return along with QB Kyler Murray. Both are rusty, so proceed with caution.

Michael Wilson, WR, ARIquestionable
Impact: With Murray back under center, Wilson’s value will only rise in the coming weeks.

Mack Hollins, WR, ATLoutside
IMPACT: Drake is set to return to London. Katharel Hodge can be a “roll of the dice” for flexibility.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, DETquestionable
Impact: Still learning a new playbook and with rib issues limiting his practice, it’s unclear whether DBJ will dress. However, the Lions could be a bit run-heavy in Week 10, given the “all clear” to return to RB David Montgomery.

Curtis Samuel, WR, WSHquestionable
Impact: He’s expected to play, which will deter fantasy managers who want to play with Jahan Dodson and Terry McClarin.
