Update, Friday — Addison was able to practice in full and was removed from the final injury report. He should be ready to go in a good matchup as the WR1 with Justin Jefferson on I.R.
Update, Thursday — Addison was once again limited on Thursday with an ankle injury. It would have been cool if he had been upgraded to full, but there’s still time for that on Friday. If he is limited again, he could end up questionable on the final injury report.
The Minnesota Vikings will take on the Chicago Bears in a Week 6 NFC North divisional matchup. The Vikings received bad news this week as a knee injury caused the team to add Justin Jefferson to injured reserve. With the star WR sidelined with the injury, rookie Jordan Addison is expected to get more work. Unfortunately, he is dealing with an ankle injury and is beginning the week limited in practice.
Fantasy football implications for Week 6
Addison has a good matchup this week against the Chicago defense. He should see a large target share and high snap count, provided he can shake off the ankle injury. Addison should be started in 10-team leagues or higher. If he cannot play, Minnesota will have to go down the depth chart to find pass-catchers. K.J. Osborn would have value in deeper PPR leagues, but guys like Brandon Powell and N’Keal Harry shouldn’t be counted on in Week 6.
