The key here is Tee Higgins, which will make Tyler Boyd a strong option in fantasy.

Dolphins

Chase Claypool is ruled inactive and was ruled out as a coach's decision. Claypool joined the Dolphins on Friday, so he did not have much time to acclimate to the team. Here are the other inactives for Miami:

The Patriots defense has dealt with many injuries so far this season, with star Matthew Judon and rookie Christian Gonzalez out. The good news for New England is J.C. Jackson, who is making his Patriots return, and Jonathan Jones are both active against the Saints.

Here is a look at the players who will not be on the field today:

Giants 

Barkley will miss his third consecutive game as he continues to work through an ankle injury. New York's running game has basically been non-existent without Barkley, so this obviously isn't good for NY. As you can see below, the Giants' offense also continues to be plagued by injuries. 

RB Saquon Barkley 

S Gervarrius Owens 

LB Micah McFadden 

C John Michael Schmitz 

G Shane Lemieux 

T Andrew Thomas 

DL Jordon Riley

Along with the following players, cornerback Jaycee Horn will miss another game as he isn't eligible to come off of IR for another week. D'Shawn Jamison is slated to start in Donte Jackson's place. 

RB Raheem Blackshear

S Xavier Woods

CB Donte Jackson

Lonnie Johnson is an underrated loss for the Saints, given his contributions on special teams.

Lions

Detroit will be without several key players today including rookie DB Branch, fellow rookie RB Gibbs and 1,000-yard WR Amon-Ra St. Brown. Look for WR Josh Reynolds and RB David Montgomery to get more work today with Gibbs and St. Brown out.

Jets-Broncos

From AJ Ross:

Russell Wilson says Broncos are starting to believe and building a culture of winning. Neither Nathaniel Hackett nor his replacement as Broncos coach Sean Payton commented on shots fired at each other in the preseason, but even though neither addressed it this week - this game is personal.

Patriots-Saints

From Melanie Collins:

Questions coming in about Derek Carr and sprained AC joint in his right (throwing) shoulder: Carr admitted he was nowhere near 100 percent last week, but this week with full week, he's feeling better. He will be wearing a foam donut on his shoulder for an extra layer of protection, but says he is a "full go."

Titans-Colts

From Amanda Renner:

For the Colts, Jonathan Taylor is back, fresh off 3-year, $42M new deal landed Saturday. Taylor says he is 100 percent and will play. Can probably expect a pitch count, and Zach Moss has played very well. Kwity Paye and Shaq Leonard are out. 

For the Titans, Treylon Burks is out, but Titans getting Kyle Phillips back. Offense also gets a boost with LG Peter Skoronski returning to help protect Ryan Tannehill.

Ravens-Steelers

From Evan Washburn: 

QB Kenny Pickett's left knee - practiced all week and by Friday he said he felt like himself.

The Ravens are etting two of their top 3 WR's back - Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman. Also getting LT Ronnie Stanley back

Chiefs-Vikings

From Tracy Wolfson:

Chiefs LB Nick Bolton (ankle) is still a week away; Drue Tranquill will start in his place.

Vikings starting C Garrett Bradberry is back and will mark the first time Minnesota's O-line is in tact since Week 1. Coach Kevin O'Connell wants to run the ball, control clock to keep Patrick Mahomes off field. Team will go with RB by committee - Alexander Mattison to start, but plenty of Cam Akers.
