9:30 a.m. ET London game

Zay JonesWR, JAXQuestionable
Impact: He has been out since week 2 but may finally be able to return to action. Even when active, it’s a risky fantasy piece.

Play at 1 p.m. ET

Justice HillRB, BALQuestionable
Impact: Limited in practice, but action could follow Gus Edwards if he can play.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, BALQuestionable
Impact: The veteran says he can play. WR Rashod Bateman has been removed from the injury report and is starting.

Jahmyr GibbsRB, DETDoubtful
Impact: The late downgrade is to be expected David Montgomery have a huge day.

Amon-Ra St. BrownWR, DETDoubtful
Effects: Josh Reynolds And Caliph Raymond will likely start at WR for the Lions, although Reynolds is questionable with a groin injury. Jameson Williams can also be pushed into action, although his conditioning (or rather lack thereof following his suspension) limits his snaps.

John Metchie IIIWR, HOUQuestionable
Impact: If healthy, he could challenge Robert Woods for some goals.

Jonathan TaylorRB, INDActivated from the PUP list
Impact: He is expected to play, but he may only get a quick count to help get him back into action.

Rhamondre StevensonRB, NEQuestionable
Impact: Despite having limited practice all week, he is expected to play.

Juwan JohnsonTE, NOOUT OF
Effects: Jimmy Graham And Foster Moreau Some additional targets may appear.

Derek CarrQB, NOQuestionable
Impact: His shoulder is obviously still bothering him, but he played in Week 4. Expect him to start at least this week.

Saquon BarkleyRB, NYGQuestionable
Impact: He’s reportedly getting closer, but not ready yet. Matt Breida hasn’t done much in the weeks that Barkley has already been out.

Pat FreiermuthTE, PITOUT OF
Impact: Not a surprise given the bye week coming up. Darnell Washington will begin in his place.

Treylon BurksWR, TENOUT OF
Effects: Kyle Philips returns from IR and will look to fill the void.

4 p.m. ET games

Keaontay IngramRB, ARIQuestionable
Effect: When he sits, Emari Demercado And Corey Clement would resign James Conner.

T-shirt HigginsWR, CINQuestionable
Impact: He is not expected to play. Kwamie Lassiter II was called up from the training squad.

Javonte WilliamsRB, DENQuestionable
Impact: Although he says he’s doing well, a hip injury doesn’t bode well for playing time. He is a game time crier. Jaleel McLaughlin could be given the opportunity to take on lead-back duties.

Cooper KuppWR, LARActivated via IR
Impact: He is expected to play without restrictions. Puka Nacua And Tutu Atwell Both should see less work than they saw, but not necessarily much less.

Rashaad PennyRB, PHIDoubtful
Impact: He’s been a healthy inactive several times this season, the fact that he’s dealing with an illness just gives Philadelphia a real reason to play this time around.

Game on Sunday evening

Elijah MitchellRB, SFOUT OF
Impact: He could definitely be out for some time. Jordan Mason will be the backup Christian McCaffrey.
