The broad reception is slowly but surely getting healthier as the season approaches, but many of the major WRs for Week 6 (Diontae Johnson and Sammy Watkins) have already been disqualified, plus three weekly “questionable” rookies for the Sunday games. DJ Chark, Darius Slayton and Jarvis Landry will all be match-time decisions this week, which means the injury updates below will be essential when finalizing your Fantasy Start decisions on Sunday.
Is DJ Chark playing this week?
Update: ESPN’s Adam Shifter mentioned late Saturday night that he participated He is likely to play But he will have to test his ankle in warm-up exercises before making a formal decision.
(The ankle) involved barely doing practically anything this week, despite it being officially listed asDoubtful, “The fantasists should be concerned about his confrontation with lions.

It’s likely more of a pitfall than anything else so it’s best to leave it on the bench despite proper alignment. Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault would see more goals if Chark knocked out, which puts both squarely into the WR3 mix.
Is Darius Slayton playing this week?

The showdown against Washington isn’t great on paper, but Slayton is clearly the best-known receiver in New York with a huge advantage in every match. As long as he’s active, he should be in imaginary ranks. If he got out, Golden Tate would have a big bump, especially in PPR tournaments, and Evan Engram would also be a better choice in TE.
Does Jarvis Landry play a week?
Despite very limited reps in practice this week, Landry (Hip, Ribs) is listed as’DoubtfulOn Sunday, he is expected to play Pittsburgh.
Landry pulls off his best matches and characters of the season to take on his usual steady offensive turn against the Steelers’ defense that surprisingly allowed his fifth-biggest Fantasy score in every match for WRs this season.
