Fantasy injury Week 6 reports: Pat Freiermuth, Dawson Knox, Drake London
- Pat Freiermuth
UPDATE: According to fellow Steeler Najee Harris, Freiermuth (concussion) is out for Week 6.
According to ESPN’s Brooke Pryor, Freiermuth (concussion) was one of nine Steelers players who did not practice on Wednesday.
In last week’s road loss to the Bills, the second-year tight end suffered a concussion. Freiermuth has now suffered three concussions in his brief career. The Steelers will keep an eye on his progress as he attempts to clear the league’s concussion protocols. If Freiermuth is unable to play, fantasy owners will have to scour the waiver wire for tight ends with favorable matchups, such as Evan Engram (vs. Indianapolis), Irv Smith Jr. (vs. Dolphins) or Will Dissly and Noah Fant (vs. Panthers) (vs. Cardinals).
- Dawson Knox
UPDATE 2: Knox (foot, hamstring) is not listed on Buffalo’s injury report for Week 6.
UPDATE: According to Bills beat reporter Sal Capaccio, Knox (foot, hamstring) was seen at practice on Thursday.
Knox (foot, hamstring) was limited in practice on Wednesday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
The Bills are hoping to get the 25-year-old tight end back into the lineup after he was sidelined with multiple injuries last week. Without Knox, the Bills relied on rookie Quintin Morris, who caught three passes for 39 yards on five targets. If Knox plays this weekend, he’s a low-tier TE1 option against the Chiefs, who allow 10.75 points per game to tight ends this season (11th most in the league).
London (knee) was not listed on the Falcons’ injury report for Wednesday, which indicates that he will play against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Despite suffering a knee injury in last week’s loss to the Buccaneers, the rookie wide receiver managed four receptions (seven targets) for 35 yards. He’d be returning to a difficult matchup against the 49ers, who have only allowed two wide receiver touchdowns this season.
London may be on fantasy owners’ radar as a volume-based flex option, but he’s no lock.
