As your Week 6 match-up rolls around your sure to want prime production out of every roster slot available. The more weeks that roll bye, the more injuries that pile up as is shown by the Green Bay Packers injury report.
Here are five guys you should be sure to keep an eye on as Sunday morning rolls around, because if healthy they are worth a start.
Through two weeks Moreno wasn't exactly tearing up the fantasy front, but he was producing enough to keep owners happy. Moreno scored a touchdown on the ground in each of his first two games while racking up a combined 182 all purpose yards.
Moreno has been struggling with a nagging Hamstring injury that has seen him miss three straight games, and he is ruled as questionable for this week. Moreno didn't practice on Wednesday according to the Denver Post, but Broncos coach Josh McDaniels didn't include Moreno on a list of players that wouldn't play this weekend.
With a 4:05(ET) kickoff, you'll have time to wake up late, check Moreno's status and decide whether to sit him or play him. If Moreno is healthy and active, I would advise having him in the game.
LeSean McCoy is the most interesting case on this list. McCoy didn't practice Wednesday, but is listed as Questionable for this Sunday's match-up with the Falcons. McCoy played through his cracked rib last week against San Francisco, but that was in large part because he didn't have much of an option at backup.
After the Eagles traded Mike Bell (RB) straight up for Jerome Harrison, they look to have a little extra depth at the running back spot. If Harrison gets rolling on a couple early carries, don't be surprised if the Eagles give McCoy a little extra rest.
LeSean McCoy will more than likely play this weekend, but there is a chance that he won't get as many carries as his fantasy owners are used to. With a 1:00(ET) kick-off, keep McCoy in your line-up, as long as he's active.
Michael Vick is one of the most surprising fantasy players in this young NFL Season. Vick accounted for seven touchdowns in under four full games, making himself one of the most prolific fantasy Quarterback's of this young season.
When Vick went down against the Redskins with an injury to his rib cartilage, the Quarterback controversy in Philadelphia flared right back up. Vick is saying that he has a chance to return to play against his old team, but some experts are saying that Vick might not come back until after the Eagles bye week.
Keep an eye on Vick's status, because if Andy Reid says he'll start then you should probably get him in your line-up. Whether Vick is under Center this weekend or not, keep him stashed on your bench for his return.
Calvin Johnson is Shaun Hill's go to receiver for the Lions, averaging 12.1 yards per catch. Johnson has snagged four touchdown passes (if you don't include the one against the Bears), through five games making him one of the better Fantasy receives in the league.
Johnson is listed as Questionable for the Lions trip to New York to play the Giants, but the Lions need him in the game. Johnson has missed a little bit of practice but since coming back has said "the range of motion isn't all there yet," and its been reported that he is still favoring his right shoulder.
Johnson hasn't practiced at full force at all this week, making it look as if he'll sit this Sunday's game out. However keep your eye on him, because if he practices at 100 percent on Friday he might get a chance to take the field come Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers has been a fantasy machine this year throwing for nine touchdowns and rushing for two more. With the Packers run game limited Rodgers has been charged with even more duty in running this Green Bay offense.
Rodgers suffered a concussion in last weeks loss to Washington, and is having to follow the leagues protocol to get back on the field. According to coach Mike McCarthy the Packers won't know until at least Thursday morning whether they'll have Rodgers back on the field or not.
With the NFL cracking down on playing after a concussion if Rodgers is allowed on the field, rest assured he'll be completely healthy. If Rodgers does get cleared, make sure you have him in your starting lineup.
