Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Spin
Mason Rudolph (concussion) is in the league's protocol. Rudolph was unsurprisingly placed in the league's concussion protocol following a nasty fall that resulted in him banging his head against the field in Week 5. There's no official word he'll miss out on Week 6 just yet, but the severity of the injury suggests UDFA Devlin Hodges will start. All Steelers need to be downgraded in the short term for fantasy purposes.
Los Angeles Chargers Fantasy Spin
Coach Anthony Lynn wouldn't rule out Hunter Henry (knee) for the Chargers' Week 6 matchup against the Steelers. Specifically, Lynn stated, "He was moving around pretty good last week (on the side working with trainers) ... So we'll see if we can try to work him in (to practice) this week ... But there's no guarantee he'll be back." It sounds like Henry might still be a week or two away from a return, but things are certainly trending in a positive direction. The Chargers will continue to utilize both Virgil Green and Lance Kendricks at TE while Henry remains sidelined
