Nothing can derail a potentially successful fantasy football season quicker than injuries. That’s especially true at the ever-so-critical wide receiver position, where elite-level players can make or break a contending fantasy team. As we head into Week 7, several WRs find themselves on the injury report for their respective teams. Therefore, fantasy managers need to pay close attention to any WR injury updates and reports as NFL kickoffs draw near.

Fantasy WR Injury Report Week 7 | AFC

Which AFC WRs are dealing with the injury bug?

Editor’s note: Tuesday-Friday refer to Oct. 19-22 of this week.

Sammy Watkins, Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens have ruled Sammy Watkins out for Week 7 due to a thigh injury. Watkins will miss his second game in a row.

Nico Collins, Houston Texans

Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official site reports that Nico Collins (foot) is considered questionable for Sunday’s game against Arizona. Collins was a limited participant both Thursday and Friday as a result of the foot injury. Should he play, Collins could be in line for a significant workload as the Texans are likely to fall behind quickly and by a lot.

Chris Conley, Houston Texans

Urban also reported Chris Conley is questionable for Week 7 due to a neck injury. Conley was limited in all three practices this week.

T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

According to Stephen Holder of The Athletic, T.Y. Hilton (quad) did not participate in practice again on Friday. The Colts have officially ruled him out for their game on Sunday.

Parris Campbell, Indianapolis Colts

The Colts placed Parris Campbell on injured reserve Tuesday with a foot injury he picked up in Week 6. The 2019 second-round pick has appeared in just 14 games over his career.

Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

Per the team’s injury report, Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans after returning to a limited practice Friday. Hill didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday. Before Friday’s session, head coach Andy Reid said Hill is likely to suit up in Week 7, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.

DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins

Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports DeVante Parker (shoulder/hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. Parker was a limited participant in all three practices this week and will likely be a game-time decision.

Preston Williams, Miami Dolphins

Schad also reported the Dolphins listed Preston Williams (groin) as questionable for Sunday. Much like Parker, he was a limited participant all week and will be a game-time decision after missing Week 6.

A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans

A.J. Brown continues to battle a case of food poisoning that hampered his abilities in Week 6, but he does enter Sunday’s game with no injury designation.

Fantasy WR Injury Report Week 7 | NFC

Which NFC wide receivers currently sit on the injury report ahead of Week 7?

Terrace Marshall Jr., Carolina Panthers

Joe Person of The Athletic reports Terrace Marshall has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. After he was diagnosed with a concussion following the Panthers’ Week 6 loss to the Vikings, Marshall entered the NFL’s concussion protocol and was unable to participate all week.

Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

Per the Bears’ injury report, Allen Robinson is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. Robinson was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. He does not seem to be in danger of missing Week 7.

Deonte Harris, New Orleans Saints

Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not practice Friday. Harris was injured in Week 5 and, despite having a bye week to recover, has yet to return to the field. It’s unlikely he plays in Week 7.

Tre’Quan Smith, New Orleans Saints

Per Underhill, the Saints have designated Tre’Quan Smith (hamstring) to return from IR. This starts a 21-day window for the team to add Smith to the active 53-man roster.

Kenny Golladay, New York Giants

Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports Kenny Golladay has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. Golladay hasn’t practiced since hyperextending his right knee in Week 6.

Kadarius Toney, New York Giants

Per Rosenblatt, Kadarius Toney is out for Week 7. Toney didn’t practice at all this week after further aggravating his right ankle injury in the first quarter of Week 6.

Sterling Shepard, New York Giants

According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Giants head coach Joe Judge noted Sterling Shepard would likely be a game-time decision in Week 7. After missing two games due to a hamstring injury, Shepard returned in Week 6 and played 92% of the offensive snaps. However, he returned to the injury report Thursday with the same injury.

Darius Slayton, New York Giants

Jordan Ranaan of ESPN reports Darius Slayton (hamstring) expects to play Sunday despite being labeled as questionable by the team. Slayton has missed the Giants’ last three games but recorded back-to-back weeks of limited participation practices. 

John Ross, New York Giants

John Ross (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7, according to Rosenblatt. 

DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks

Brady Henderson of ESPN reports DK Metcalf didn’t practice Friday due to a foot injury. Metcalf was a full participant Thursday but didn’t go during Friday’s session. This follows a similar trend to Week 6 when Metcalf practiced the first day but was a DNP the next. This seems to be more of a maintenance issue than anything fantasy managers should be concerned about (as we typically would be when a player is downgraded midweek).

Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Greg Auman of The Athletic reports Antonio Brown is out Week 7 against the Bears due to an ankle injury. Brown has arguably been Tom Brady’s favorite target this season but will miss his second game this season. 

Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports Curtis Samuel is out for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. He’s played just twice this season as he continues to battle a groin injury that has been ailing him since June.
