2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 6 ISSUES: RUNNING BACK SITUATIONS IN FLUX

Week 6 is already underway and we have seen the current chaos at the running back position as the Philadelphia Eagles had to split work between Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood which made it a guessing game among the fantasy football community wondering which guy to use.  There are some other setups at hand for the remaining slate of games to throw further chaos at the position.  Let's take a look:

-It looks like Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will return to a plush matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals but the player then threw some shade on that when he said to reporters Friday he won't go until he is "100 percent."  There is still the chance of re-injury here so Cook is far from a sure thing but it looks like he will be a go.

-The New York Jets have listed Isaiah Crowell as a game-time decision which means Bilal Powell needs to be scooped up everywhere since he is a very capable running back who also is a supreme pass catcher.  Powell would be looking at a tremendous matchup versus a brutal Indy Colts defense but a late report Friday suggested Crowell will give it a go which leaves both in RB 2 territory. 

-San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida was said to have a chance to play Monday despite an ankle injury but there is almost no chance of that happening.  Also given the Monday night start, his owners can't deal with the potential headache of a late scratch.

-Already those who own Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette are pulling their hair out about him missing so much time with an injured hamstring but he was said to have gotten in some work Friday.  Either way Fournette is out Week 6 and maybe even Week 7 by the looks of things.  T.J. Yeldon remains a big RB 1 in PPR.

-There is at least some mild concern that New England Patriots running back Sony Michel is being listed as questionable with a knee issue considering the Sunday night start time and the plush matchup versus the Kansas City Chiefs possible being missed.  All signs do point to Michel going but this is something to keep tabs on.
