Week 6 fantasy injury reports: Kyle Pitts, Keenan Allen, and Marquise Brown.
Fantasy Injury Updates: Kyle Pitts, Keenan Allen and Marquise Brown on Week 6
- Kyle Pitts
UPDATE 2: Pitts (hamstring) is officially listed as “questionable” for Atlanta’s Week 6 home game against San Francisco, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
UPDATE: According to ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, Pitts (hamstring) is practicing for the second day in a row.
According to NFL Network’s James Palmer, Pitts (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday.
The second-year tight end was limited in practice on Wednesday but expects to be ready for the 49ers game on Sunday. Pitts is expected to rebound from a slow start to the season with 10 receptions (22 targets) for 150 yards.
Pitts remains one of the league’s top tight ends and should be considered a low-end TE1 this week.
- Keenan Allen
Allen (hamstring) participated in individual drills on Wednesday in preparation for the Chargers’ Week 6 game against the Broncos on Monday night.
The veteran wide receiver has been out for the past four games due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1. Allen appeared to be ready to play last week until he aggravated his injury in practice.
If Allen can get through a couple of practices before the end of the week, he should be able to play on Monday night.
