Niles Paul    TE   Washington Redskins
 
Paul (concussion) says he isn't suffering from headaches or nausea leading up to Monday's game against the Seahawks, ESPN Radio 980 D.C. reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Paul was ruled out just before halftime of last Thursday's game against the Giants after suffering an obvious concussion following a helmet-to-helmet hit. However, given the Redskins' long break between Week 4 and Week 5, Paul stands a chance of being cleared to play Monday versus the Seahawks. With Jordan Reed (hamstring) also on the mend, the Redskins' tight end situation will be one to monitor throughout this week.
Jordan Reed    TE   Washington Redskins
 
Reed (hamstring) did individual work during Tuesday's practice, ESPN Radio 980 D.C. reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Reed is hopeful of snapping his three-game absence in Week 5 against the Seahawks, although it remains to be seen whether his ailing hamstring will enable him to do so. The second-year tight end ran routes at less than full speed Monday and was limited to individual work Tuesday. As a result, Reed's status remains up in the air, requiring his situation to be monitored on a day-to-day basis. Furthermore, with Niles Paul coming off a concussion, the Redskins are managing a pair of tight end injuries at the moment.
Jeremy Maclin    WR   Philadelphia Eagles
 
Maclin (rest) is not practicing Tuesday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ben Tate    RB   Cleveland Browns
 
Tate (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate has missed the Browns' past two games due to a sprained knee suffered in Week 1. However, coming off Cleveland's bye week, Tate returned to the practice field Tuesday, which bodes well for his chances of playing against the Titans this Sunday. If that proves to happen, Tate is expected to reclaim his starting running back position, which would result in rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell being relegated to more complementary roles. While Tate's fantasy owners should feel encouraged about his progress, his status should still be monitored leading up to Sunday's game in Tennessee to ensure he's indeed available to play.
Marvin Jones    WR   Cincinnati Bengals
 
Jones (foot) is expected to return Sunday night against the Patriots, Cincinnati.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones practiced just once before suffering a broken foot in August, but returned for two practices last week prior to the Bengals' Week 4 bye. With no setback endured, Jones figures to continue practicing this week, although his involvement will likely be limited. Nonetheless, Jones is expected to suit up Sunday night against the Patriots. While his snap count could be monitored to begin, Jones' 51 receptions for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns from last season make him an intriguing waiver-wire pickup in virtually all league formats.
LeSean McCoy    RB   Philadelphia Eagles
 
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said that McCoy is healthy and not currently on the list to receive treatment for an injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "He's healthy," Kelly said. "He's not on the treatment list. He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCoy's struggles this season (2.7 YPC) have led to speculation that he's been attempting to play through an injury. Kelly's assertion that his starting running back is healthy is certainly good news, as is the return of tackle Lane Johnson in Week 5 following a four-game suspension to begin the season. McCoy and the rest of the Philadelphia offense will look to get on track against a well-rested St. Louis team that has allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs through the first month of the season.
Odell Beckham    WR   New York Giants
 
Beckham (hamstring) is set to practice "pretty much full" on Wednesday and Thursday this week after the team's off day Tuesday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
