  • Damien Harris Seen On Crutches After Thursday's Game

    New England Patriots running back Damien Harris (thigh) was seen on crutches in the team's locker room following their Thursday night loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving. Harris saw only five carries for 16 yards against Minnesota and looked to be in a considerable amount of pain walking around on the sidelines. The 25-year-old should be viewed as extremely questionable to play next Thursday against the Buffalo Bills. Rhamondre Stevenson, who is already the team's lead back at this point, would have an even higher fantasy ceiling if Harris were to miss any time. Rookie Pierre Strong Jr., Kevin Harris and J.J. Taylor would also be in line for more work in New England's backfield behind Stevenson. Stay tuned for more updates on Harris' injury.

  • Michael Pittman Jr. Projects As Solid Starting Option In Week 12

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. has been a high-floor play for most of the 2022 season. Even with the brief stint of Sam Ehlinger at quarterback for the Colts, Pittman has been the consistent number one receiver. Obviously, both his floor and ceiling are higher with quarterback Matt Ryan. This week, Pittman gets a much easier matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who allow the most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. With the Colts always being in close games, Pittman will continue to see consistent volume, and he projects as a solid WR2 in Week 12.

  • Jets To Get Corey Davis Back In Week 12

    New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that wide receiver Corey Davis (knee) will be back in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Saleh also said it's "big" for the offense, as Davis brings an intangible to the offense that goes beyond his skills -- his leadership, the way he lines up and the way he gets everyone settled. The team values Davis greatly, and he will start in the Z receiver spot, replacing Denzel Mims. However, Saleh anticipates Mims being active on Sunday. The Jets offense needs all the help they can get after benching quarterback Zach Wilson this week in favor of Mike White. Davis hasn't played since Week 7 and will now be taking passes from a new QB while also battling for targets with Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore in a low-volume passing attack. You should be able to find more reliable flex options.

  • Jonathan Taylor An Elite Option Despite Tough Matchup

    Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor has benefited from the Colts' hiring of Jeff Saturday as interim head coach, as well as his ankle injury appearing to be behind him. He's had over 20 touches in his past two games and has been the focal point of the Colts offense. This week, the Pittsburgh Steelers present a tougher test for the Colts' run game. They are in the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed per game to running backs and deploy one of the league's better front sevens. However, Taylor is still projected for top-10 numbers due to his high-volume role and how good he has been. He's a no-brainer RB1.

  • Raheem Mostert To Be Game-Time Decision

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said that running back Raheem Mostert's (knee) availability for the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans on Sunday will go right up to the game. McDaniel said that if Mostert can't play, it will have been very close. The 30-year-old missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, so he'll have to get in at least a limited practice on Friday to receive a questionable tag for the weekend. With the injury aside, Mostert has lost fantasy appeal with the arrival of Jeff Wilson Jr., who has basically taken over as the Dolphins' lead back. Even if Mostert is active against Houston, he'll be a shaky touchdown-dependent RB3/flex with limited upside. If he's out, Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin would be fighting for change-of-pace work behind Wilson.

  • Giants Defense Struggles For Second Straight Game In Week 12

    The defense of the New York Giants struggled for the second straight game in the 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. While failing to record a sack on Thursday, Dak Prescott threw for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions against New York's defense. On top of that, the Cowboys combined for 169 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns on 39 attempts versus the Giants. Despite being able to post two takeaways in Week 12, New York's defense has now allowed 28-plus points in back-to-back games. The Giants will look to get back on track on the defensive side of the ball in Week 13 versus the Washington Commanders.

  • Graham Gano Bounces Back With Two Field Goals In Week 12

    New York Giants kicker Graham Gano made both of his field-goal attempts in the 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12. During last week's loss to the Detroit Lions, Gano didn't attempt a field goal and he missed both of his extra-point tries for the Giants. But on Thursday against the Cowboys, the veteran kicker made both of his field-goal attempts (including a 57-yarder) and both of his extra-point tries. The 35-year-old kicker now has seven games this season where he's made multiple field goals, making him a premier option for the rest of the season.

  • Richie James Scores Touchdown In Week 12 Loss

    New York Giants wide receiver Richie James caught five of his six targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12. The veteran wideout saw 70 percent of the offensive snaps for just the third time this season despite dealing with a knee injury ahead of Thursday's contest. Also, James totaled 40-plus yards and scored a touchdown for the second straight game for the Giants. That being said, the 27-year-old wide receiver is going to be tough to trust moving forward given the lack of passing volume in New York's offense and the emergence of Darius Slayton as the team's No. 1 option in the passing game.

  • Darius Slayton Leads Giants With 63 Receiving Yards

    New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton hauled in three of his six targets for a team-high 63 receiving yards in the 28-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. With Wan'Dale Robinson placed on season-ending injured reserve, Slayton returned to being the No. 1 option for Daniel Jones in the passing game. The Auburn product made a fantastic 44-yard catch in the second quarter to set up Saquon Barkley for a rushing touchdown. The Giants were throwing it down the field more often against the Cowboys, and if Jones continues to trust Slayton more, he could be a solid WR3/flex option for the rest of the season.

  • Saquon Barkley Limited To 52 Yards In Week 12 Defeat

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 39 yards and a touchdown on 11 attempts while catching four of his six targets for 13 yards in the Week 12 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The superstar running back was able to find the end zone on Thursday, but he's now combined for 61 rushing yards on 26 carries in the last two weeks. On a positive note, while the former first-round pick only has 26 receiving yards on six receptions in the last two weeks, he's gotten a total of 11 targets in that span. After struggling to have much success running the ball in the last two games, Barkley will square off against a stingy run defense in the Washington Commanders in Week 13.

  • Daniel Jones Totals 242 Yards In Week 12 Loss

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 21 of his 35 passing attempts for 228 yards and a touchdown while he rushed for 14 yards on three carries in the Week 12 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Despite the lack of receiving options for the former first-round pick, he's now thrown for 200-plus yards in back-to-back weeks for the first time this season as the Giants have played from behind more often in recent games. The Cowboys did a good job preventing the Duke product from creating with his legs as he saw a season-low three attempts and the second-fewest rushing yards in a game this season. Jones will look to continue his streak of 200-plus-yard passing games in Week 13 versus the Washington Commanders.

  • Titans Defense A Boom-Or-Bust Option In Week 12

    The Tennessee Titans defense has been one of the league's best units since the Week 2 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills, so even in a tough matchup against Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and company, they have some upside. While Burrow, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boydand Ja'Marr Chase (if active) could certainly torch the Titans' weak secondary, Burrow has been sacked 34 times (fourth-most), while the Titans have 30 sacks on the season (tied for 10th). The Titans are tied for the 10th-most interceptions (nine), while Burrow has thrown eight picks on the season (tied for fifth). With all that said, Tennessee will have opportunities to create sacks and turnovers, so consider its defense/special teams a boom-or-bust option in this AFC contest with playoff implications.

  • Austin Hooper Narrowly On Fantasy Radar

    Tennessee Titans tight end Austin Hooper finally produced a solid fantasy performance last week, catching four passes for 36 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Green Bay Packers. He's seen 14 targets over the last three games, so for the first time this season, he's on the fantasy radar. It's still tough to trust him in a low-volume passing offense, but with Darren Waller, Kyle Pitts, Dallas Goedertand Zach Ertz all placed on Injured Reserve, the options are getting thin at tight end. The Cincinnati Bengals are a middle-of-the-pack matchup for tight ends, so Hooper can be used as a last-resort option in Week 12.

  • Robert Woods A Low-End Flex Play In Deep Leagues

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Robert Woods is coming off of one of his best performances of the year, catching six passes for 69 yards in the win over the Green Bay Packers. Ryan Tannehill and the Titans' passing attack looked as dangerous as it had all year, so there might be some hope for late-season value among Titans' pass-catchers. However, this offense will likely struggle to support multiple fantasy-relevant wideouts, and Treylon Burks should be considered the wideout with the most upside on this team. Woods remains off the fantasy radar in shallow leagues, but he's a deep league desperation play moving forward.

  • Treylon Burks Looks To Build On Breakout Game

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks is coming off a breakout performance, catching seven passes for 111 yards in the win over the Green Bay Packers. Now he's set to face the Cincinnati Bengals, who have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers thus far. However, Bengals cornerback Chidobe Awuzie is a big reason for the team's success against wideouts, and he's expected to miss the rest of the regular season with a torn ACL. The Pittsburgh Steelers found ample success in the passing game against Cincinnati last week, so the matchup might not be as tough as it looks on paper. Since Tennessee is a run-heavy attack, consider Burks a boom-or-bust flex play in this highly important AFC battle.

  • Derrick Henry Looks For Revenge Versus Bengals

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed for just 62 yards on 20 rushing attempts in the 19-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round in last year's playoffs. It was Henry's first game back from a Jones fracture in his right foot and he was completely shut down. Henry will get a chance for revenge in a regular season matchup with the Bengals, who are just a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs. As always, Henry is a must-start and has an overall RB1 ceiling. Henry leads the NFL with 1010 rushing yards and will look to make a big statement in a meaningful game for the AFC playoff race.

  • Vikings DST Returns Kickoff For A Touchdown On Thanksgiving

    The Minnesota Vikings' defense/special teams allowed 409 total yards of offense to the New England Patriots in the 33-26 win over the New England Patriots. Kene Nwangwu has the biggest play of the game in Thursday's win over New England. He took a kickoff return 97 yards to the house during the third quarter to tie the game 23-23. New England's offense torched the Vikings' defense, but the special teams' touchdown salvaged their fantasy day. Minnesota also racked up three sacks in Thursday's victory. The Vikings can be used as a streamer against the New York Jets in Week 13.

  • T.J. Hockenson Scores First TD As Member Of The Vikings

    Minnesota Vikings tight end T.J. Hockenson caught five of six targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the 33-26 Thanksgiving win over the New England Patriots. Kirk Cousins connected with Hockenson for a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter to put the Vikings up 16-13 in the first half. It was Hockenson's first touchdown as a member of the Vikings. The 25-year-old has 52 catches for 587 yards and four touchdowns over 11 games between the Vikings/Lions in 2022. Hockenson will look to build on Thursday's performance against the New Jets in Week 13.

  • Adam Thielen Finds The End Zone In Thanksgiving Win

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught nine of 10 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Thanksgiving 33-26 win over the New England Patriots. Kirk Cousins connected with Thielen for a 15-yard touchdown during the fourth quarter to put the Vikings in the lead 33-26. It was the veteran's first touchdown since Week 6. The 32-year-old had caught 54 passes on 77 targets for 553 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games in 2022. Thielen is a borderline WR3 and flex option against the New York Jets in Week 13.

  • Justin Jefferson Scores, Explodes For 139 Yards On Thanksgiving

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson caught nine of 11 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in the Thanksgiving 33-26 win over the New England Patriots. Kirk Cousins connected with Jefferson for a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put the Vikings on the scoreboard. He logged at least 100 receiving yards in six of the last eight games. The 23-year-old has been excellent this season, catching 81 passes for 1,232 yards and five touchdowns over 11 games in 2022. Jefferson remains an elite option and a must-start against the New York Jets in Week 13.

  • Dalvin Cook Held In Check By Pats In Thanksgiving Win

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook rushed 22 times for 42 yards and brought in four of five targets for 14 yards in the Thanksgiving win over the New England Patriots. He averaged 1.91 yards per carry, with his longest run being six yards in Thursday's victory. The 27-year-old has rushed for 841 yards and six touchdowns while catching 26 passes for 160 receiving yards and a score over 11 games in 2022. Despite the lackluster performance, Cook remains a must-start option against the New York Jets in Week 13.

  • Kirk Cousins Bounces Back, Tosses Three TDs In Thanksgiving Win

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-37 passes for 299 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Thanksgiving win over the New England Patriots. After failing to throw a touchdown pass in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Cousins bounced with a big performance in Thursday's win. The 34-year-old connected with Justin Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson, and Adam Thielen for touchdowns in Thursday's victory. He has thrown 2,760 yards, 17 touchdowns, and nine interceptions while rushing for two scores in 11 games in 2022. Cousins is considered a mid-range QB2 against the New York Jets in Week 13.

  • Nick Folk Perfect In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots kicker Nick Folk went 4-for-4 in field goal attempts while connecting on both extra-point tries in the 33-26 Thanksgiving loss to the Minnesota Vikings. In Thursday's loss, he converted field goal attempts from 34, 46, 23, and 25 yards. The 38-year-old has now made at least four field goals in three of the last four games. Folk remains one of the most reliable fantasy kickers in 2022 and is a strong streaming option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

  • Jaguars Defense Is Mid-Tier Option In Week 12 Against Baltimore

    The defense of the Jacksonville Jaguars are a mid-tier option in Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens at home. The Jaguars have limited teams to 20.5 points per game, which is the 13th fewest in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Ravens scored only 13 points in Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers and they are dealing with multiple injuries on offense. That being said, slowing down Lamar Jackson is easier said than done. There are likely better defenses to start in Week 12 than the Jaguars, but if you're in a deeper league where there aren't many defenses available, Jacksonville is a fine option.

  • Riley Patterson Likely Worth Benching In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Riley Patterson is likely worth benching in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. After making multiple field goals in three of his first five games for the Jaguars this season, Patterson has just one game with multiple field goals made in his last five appearances. Also, the second-year kicker has only converted three of his six field-goal attempts in the last two games for Jacksonville. Even with the Jaguars performing better on offense this season, there are likely better kicking options than Patterson available in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Jaguars Riley Patterson
  • Evan Engram Is Viable TE Option In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram is a viable option in Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens at home. The former first-round pick hauled in only three passes for 14 yards in the Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, giving him a total of four catches for 22 yards in his last two appearances. Despite his recent struggles, Engram has been running a route on nearly every snap he's on the field and he's proven to be a go-to option for Trevor Lawrence in certain weeks. While his ceiling hasn't been extremely high in his first year with the Jaguars, the veteran tight end is a solid option in Week 12 versus the Ravens.

    Nov 25 · Source via Jaguars Evan Engram
  • Zay Jones Is Risky Flex Option In Deeper Leagues In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones is a risky flex option in deeper leagues in Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens. The former second-round pick caught eight of his 10 targets for 68 yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Jones logged 10-plus targets for the third time this season versus the Chiefs, but he's still tough to trust every week in fantasy football as he's seen five or fewer targets in four games this year. Also, the 27-year-old wideout has just one touchdown thus far and he hasn't scored since Week 3. While Christian Kirk should thrive out of the slot on Sunday, Jones could struggle on the outside versus the Ravens, making him someone that should be avoided unless you're extremely desperate in deeper leagues.

  • Nelson Agholor Finds The End Zone In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught six of eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the 33-26 Thanksgiving loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The veteran wideout saw an increased role with Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) briefly exiting with a shoulder injury. Mac Jones connected with Agholor for a 34-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The 29-year-old topped 50 receiving yards and logged his first touchdown since Week 2. He has 23 catches for 310 yards and two touchdowns over 10 games in 2022. Agholor is considered a boom-or-bust flex and could have an increased role if Meyers misses next Thursday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Nov 25 · Source via Patriots Nelson Agholor
  • Christian Kirk Poised For Productive Outing In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk is poised for a productive outing in Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens at home. The speedy wideout was able to corral nine of his 12 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. With his performance against the Chiefs, Kirk has now accrued 17 receptions, 181 yards, and three touchdowns on 21 targets in his last two games. The Ravens allow the sixth-most points to slot WRs this season, which is where the former second-round pick does the majority of his damage. Considering that Trevor Lawrence has looked more comfortable in recent weeks, Kirk is a fantastic option in Week 12.

  • Jakobi Meyers Briefly Exits, Racks Up 62 Yards In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers brought in three of four targets for 62 yards in the 33-26 Thanksgiving loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He briefly exited the first half with a shoulder injury but returned later in the game. Fantasy managers will need to monitor his practice status next week. The 26-year-old has recorded at least 50 receiving yards in three of the team's last four games. He has 47 catches for 571 yards and three touchdowns over nine games in 2022. Meyers remains a solid option in PPR formats against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

  • Travis Etienne Jr. Primed To Bounce Back In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. is primed to bounce back in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens following a quiet outing in Week 10 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. The second-year back was limited to 73 scrimmage yards on 14 touches in the loss to the Chiefs two weeks ago. While the Jaguars recently claimed Darrell Henderson off of waivers this week, he shouldn't be expected to steal many snaps from Etienne anytime soon. With the Jaguars coming out of their bye week, and the Ravens allowing the fifth-most receiving yards per game to RBs this season, the 23-year-old back is set up for a productive game in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Jaguars Travis Etienne
  • Trevor Lawrence Is Solid Option In Week 12 Against Baltimore

    Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is a solid quarterback option in Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens at home. The second-year quarterback has put together two straight efficient performances against the Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs, combining for 494 passing yards and three passing touchdowns while completing 54 of his 71 attempts in the last two weeks. The 23-year-old quarterback has also rushed for 79 yards on 10 carries in the last two weeks. Even though the Ravens have been better defensively in recent weeks, Lawrence is still viable in Week 12.

  • Hunter Henry Hauls In 37-Yard TD In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots tight end Hunter Henry caught three of five targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Thanksgiving 33-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Mac Jones connected with Henry for a 37-yard touchdown strike during the third quarter to give the Pats the lead. The 27-year-old almost had a second touchdown, but the TD catch was challenged, overturned, and ruled incomplete. Henry has achieved modest results this season with 23 catches for 323 yards and two touchdowns over 11 games. Henry remains a touchdown-dependent option in Thursday's matchup against the Bills in Week 13.

  • DeVante Parker Leads Pats With 80 Yards In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker caught all four targets for 80 yards in the Thanksgiving 33-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He led the Patriots with 80 receiving yards, with most of the damage coming from a 40-yard catch. It was the second time this season that the veteran wideout eclipsed 75 receiving yards in a game. The 29-year-old has 21 catches for 420 yards and one touchdown in 10 games in 2022. Parker remains a boom-or-bust option against the Buffalo Bills in Thursday's showdown in Week 13.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson Catches Nine Passes In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson rushed seven times for 36 yards and caught nine of 10 targets for 76 yards in Thursday's 33-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He led the team in targets and receptions during the Thanksgiving loss. The 24-year-old racked up at least 70 yards in nine consecutive games. He has rushed for 680 yards and four touchdowns while catching 50 passes for 359 yards and a score over 11 games in 2022. Damien Harris exited Thursday's game early with a thigh injury; Stevenson could see a more prominent role in Thursday's showdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

  • Mac Jones Erupts For Career-High 382 Yards In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 28-of-39 passes for 382 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Thanksgiving night loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He put up his best game of the season and averaged 9.8 yards per attempt. The 24-year-old connected with Hunter Henry and Nelson Agholor for a pair of touchdown passes. It was his second 300-yard and first multi-touchdown effort this season. He has thrown for 1,768 yards, six touchdowns, and seven interceptions through eight games in 2022. Despite the terrific performance, Jones remains a borderline QB2 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

  • Damien Harris Downgraded To Out Thursday

    New England Patriots running back Damien Harris (thigh) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. He had initially been listed as questionable, but New England downgraded his status midway through the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old rushed just five times for 16 yards before exiting. Rhamondre Stevenson will continue to operate as the Patriots' workhorse while Pierre Strong Jr. fills a depth role.

  • Jason Sanders Hard To Trust Despite Favorable Matchup

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders isn't an extremely appealing fantasy option in Week 12 against the Houston Texans. Despite the favorable matchup and potential for Miami to score plenty of points, Sanders' production as of late has been relatively underwhelming. The 27-year-old missed two extra points in Week 10 and whiffed on a field goal the week prior. Since Sanders' success in the kicking game is far from a guarantee, it might be wise to look for someone else to plug into your lineups.

  • Dolphins Defense Poised To Feast In Week 12

    The Miami Dolphins' defense should be started in most fantasy football leagues this week. The unit will be tasked with slowing down the Houston Texans, one of the weakest offenses in the NFL. Houston even made a change at quarterback this week, replacing Davis Mills with Kyle Allen. The Texans are desperate for a spark, but it's hard to imagine they'll see much of a difference with their backup quarterback taking over the offense. Between turnovers, sacks, low yardage, and a low point total, Miami's defense should wreak havoc this week. Start them with confidence in fantasy football.

  • Tua Tagovailoa Remains Strong Option Against Houston

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa remains a top fantasy option heading into Week 12 against the Houston Texans. The signal-caller is coming off his bye, but in the three games before that, he totaled 75 completions, 969 yards, nine touchdowns, and zero interceptions. His production paid off in fantasy football as he ranked as the overall QB2 during that three-week span. Even against the Texans' strong secondary, Tagovailoa should thrive thanks to his elite offensive weapons and a time of possession that is expected to be very high. He ranks as a QB1 in fantasy football once again. Continue to start him with confidence.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. A Must-Start In Week 12

    Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. has quickly reached must-start territory in fantasy football. Miami is coming off a bye, and its 27-year-old back is poised to pick up right where he left off in mid-November. Wilson has flourished through two games since being dealt to the Dolphins, racking up 170 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. During that span, he ranked as the overall RB3 in fantasy football. Heading into Week 12 against the Houston Texans, everything has fallen in place for Wilson to thrive once again. Not only is Houston's defense allowing 31 fantasy points per game to running backs and 10.6 points in the red zone (both marks are league-worsts), but Wilson's backfield-mate, Raheem Mostert (knee), is in jeopardy of missing the contest after two consecutive DNPs in practice. Thus, Wilson could have the backfield all to himself. He ranks as a mid-to-high RB2 and should be started across the board.

  • Mike Gesicki Lacks Fantasy Appeal Following Bye Week

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki is not worth starting in fantasy football this week. Gesicki's Week 12 opponent is the Houston Texans, who have posted middle-of-the-pack numbers against tight ends this season. Since he is extremely touchdown dependent (he has failed to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the seven games in which he has not caught a touchdown pass), Gesicki can be avoided in most fantasy leagues this week. There's just too much risk associated with starting the 27-year-old.

  • Trent Sherfield Worth Considering In Deep Leagues

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Trent Sherfield strung together a few solid games and has emerged as a solid FLEX option in deep fantasy leagues. The 26-year-old now has 12 catches, 159 yards, and one touchdown over his last four games, ranking as the WR43 in PPR during that span. In addition to his solid production, Sherfield has seen steady opportunities in the Miami offense, playing more than half of the offensive snaps in each of his last eight contests. If you're playing in a deeper league and need a steady scorer in your lineup, consider Sherfield ahead of his clash versus the Houston Texans. He also has intrigue as a low-cost option in DFS lineups.

  • Jaylen Waddle A Borderline WR1 On Sunday

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle remains a fantastic option in fantasy football as he takes on the Houston Texans in Week 12. The Dolphins are coming off their bye, and Waddle will look to pick up right where he left off. The 24-year-old has caught 27 passes for 474 yards and three touchdowns over his last five games, ranking as the WR3 (in half-PPR) during that span. The second-year wideout has proven that he can co-exist alongside Tyreek Hill, and that should hold true on Sunday against Houston. Start him with full confidence.

  • Tyreek Hill Projects As Top Option In Week 12

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill should be viewed as a high-end WR1 and an obvious must-start against the Houston Texans in Week 12. Miami is coming off its bye, and Hill will look to pick up right where he left off in mid-November. The 28-year-old is having a borderline historic season with his new team, catching 81 passes for 1,148 yards and four touchdowns through just 10 games. Continue to start him in fantasy football with full confidence.

  • Damien Harris Questionable To Return Thursday

    New England Patriots running back Damien Harris (thigh) is questionable to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. The 25-year-old had rushed just five times for 16 yards before exiting. If Harris is unable to return, Rhamondre Stevenson would operate as the Patriots' workhorse while Pierre Strong Jr. fills a depth role.

  • Cowboys Defense Unable To Force Turnover In Week 12

    The Dallas Cowboys' defense allowed 20 points and failed to force a turnover during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. The unit did force one fumble, but New York recovered it. On a positive note, the Cowboys recorded three sacks in the victorytwo from Micah Parsons and one courtesy of Dorance Armstrong. This squad should continue to be started in fantasy football when they take on the Indianapolis Colts next week.

  • Brett Maher Misses Field Goal On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher went 4-for-4 on extra point attempts during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. However, he did miss his lone field goal try from 46 yards out. The 33-year-old has been one of the most powerful and accurate kickers in the NFL this season, so Thursday's subpar performance appears to be an anomaly. He should continue to be started in all fantasy leagues going forward.

  • Noah Brown Not A Factor In Cowboys' Week 12 Win

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown was not targeted during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. Dak Prescott targeted just two receivers along the way, so Brown certainly wasn't alone in that regard. Still, it was a step back for the 26-year-old, who had logged at least one catch in each of his 10 games this season. Brown can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues for the time being.

  • Jake Ferguson Hauls In All Three Targets Thursday

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson hauled in all three of his targets for 57 yards during the team's Thanksgiving Day victory over the New York Giants. The 23-year-old has looked fine in a depth role this season, racking up 14 catches, 140 yards, and two touchdowns through 11 games. Despite looking solid this year, he is still the Cowboys' No. 2 tight end and should be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Gallup Busy During Thanksgiving Win

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup hauled in five of eight targets for 63 yards during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. It was an impressive game for the 26-year-old, who racked up season-highs in targets, receptions, yards, and fantasy points along the way. He has a firm grasp on the No. 2 receiver role and should continue to rank as a low-end FLEX option going forward.

  • Dalton Schultz Catches Two Touchdown Passes On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz enjoyed the team's Thanksgiving Day contest versus the New York Giants, catching four passes for 31 yards and two touchdowns. He has been quite effective as of late, totaling 24 catches, 230 yards, and three touchdowns over the course of his last five games. After a slow start to the season, the 26-year-old has come on strong and is poised to post mid-range TE1 numbers down the final stretch.

  • CeeDee Lamb Eclipses Century Mark Thursday

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb turned 11 targets into six catches for 106 yards against the New York Giants in Week 12. Not only did the 23-year-old reach triple-digit yardage for the second time this season, but he also posted 10+ fantasy points for the ninth time over his last 10 games. Even with a matchup against a strong Colts secondary next week, Lamb has established as a weekly WR1 in fantasy football. Start him with confidence.

  • Jakobi Meyers Returns On Thursday Night

    New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) has returned to Thursday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings. He had been listed as questionable after injuring himself on the opening drive. While DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne filled in admirably during Meyers' absence, New England certainly benefits from having its No. 1 receiver back on the field as they look to pull ahead in the second half.

  • Dak Prescott Tosses Two Touchdowns, Two Picks On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 21 of 30 passes for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. He also rushed for four yards in the contest. Although Prescott wasn't able to replicate the production from his last three games, he still turned in a solid contest and has asserted himself as a stable QB1 in fantasy football rest-of-season. That valuation holds true heading into Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Peyton Hendershot Rushes For Touchdown In Week 12

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Peyton Hendershot delivered a two-yard touchdown rush on his lone touch during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. The 23-year-old has been used sporadically throughout the season, racking up 83 receiving yards, two rushing yards, and two touchdowns over the course of 11 games. He still remains a depth option behind Dalton Schultz and Jake Ferguson and should be left on waivers in all leagues.

  • Tony Pollard Unable To Repeat Big Performance On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard rushed 18 times for just 60 yards during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. He also added one receiving yard on two receptions. It was a relatively frustrating game for the 25-year-old considering he turned in 60 rushing yards, 109 receiving yards, and two touchdowns just four days earlier. With that said, Dallas has done a good job balancing the usage of both Ezekiel Elliott and Pollard; the two backs should be viewed as RB2 options in Week 13 versus Indianapolis.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Finds End Zone On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 16 times for 92 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants on Thursday evening. He also hauled in a three-yard reception. Ultimately, the veteran back turned in a solid fantasy performance, in large part thanks to his ability to find the end zone. Dallas has done a good job balancing the usage of both Elliott and Tony Pollard; the two backs should be viewed as RB2 options in Week 13 versus Indianapolis.

  • Melvin Gordon III Generating Significant Interest

    Free agent running back Melvin Gordon III has generated interest from a "wide variety" of teams on the open market, according to Mike Klis of 9News. Cut loose by the Denver Broncos earlier this week, Gordon showed that he was a capable runner in 2022. However, he struggled to protect the football, coughing up five fumbles through 10 games. Although his exact role is dependent on where he signs, Gordon projects as a backup and should be benched in most leagues, if not dropped altogether.

  • Jakobi Meyers Questionable To Return Thursday

    New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is questionable to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. The 26-year-old hauled in one pass for 26 yards before exiting the contest. DeVante Parker and Nelson Agholor should see expanded roles in the passing game until Meyers can return.

  • Steelers Defense Draws A Plus Matchup In Week 12

    The Pittsburgh Steelers will head on the road to take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12's Monday night game. Pittsburgh's defense draws a good matchup as the Colts are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to fantasy defenses in 2022. The Steelers defense should perform well against a Colts offense that is 31st in the NFL in average points scored per game and 21st in yards per game. This contest has an extremely low over/under set at 39 points, implying that this should be a defensive battle. Treat the Steelers as a top-12 fantasy defense heading into Week 12.

  • Matthew Wright Not A Strong Fantasy Option In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright has made five of his seven field goals over the past two games. Wright has taken over kicking duties for the injured Chris Boswell (groin) and will do so for at least the next two games before Boswell is eligible to be activated. Wright will kick against the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12's Monday night game. The Colts are a neutral matchup for fantasy kickers as they are allowing the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Wright will not be a recommended fantasy option heading into Week 12.

  • Pat Freiermuth A TE1 In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth has been productive over his past four games, having caught 24 passes for 247 yards over that span. Freiermuth will take on the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12's Monday night game. The Colts are allowing the 13th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season, setting up a decent matchup for Freiermuth. Treat him as a top-six fantasy tight end heading into Week 12.

  • Diontae Johnson A Flex Option In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is still looking for his first touchdown of the 2022 NFL season. Johnson will look to change that in Week 12's Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have been tough on receivers in fantasy as they are allowing the fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Johnson has not shown much of a ceiling at all in 2022 as the offense has been running through Pat Freiermuth and George Pickens most weeks. Johnson sets up as a low-upside flex option in fantasy for Week 12.

  • George Pickens A Flex Option In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens is coming off a solid game that saw him catch four passes for 83 yards and a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Pickens will look to build upon that performance in a road matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12's Monday night game. The Colts represent a difficult matchup for Pickens as they are allowing the fewest fantasy points in the league to opposing wide receivers. Pickens has emerged as Kenny Pickett's favorite receiver in the passing game but he should be treated as a boom/bust flex option in fantasy heading into Week 12.

  • Najee Harris A Solid Play In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has been heating up of late, having run for 189 yards and two touchdowns over his past two contests. He will look to keep it going in Week 12's Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts. Harris could see nearly all of the backfield touches in Week 12 as rookie Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is questionable after tweaking his hamstring against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Consider Harris' matchup to be on the tougher side as the Colts are allowing the 15th-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs while their run defense ranks as the sixth-best in the league in DVOA. Treat Harris as a low-end RB1 heading into Week 12.

  • Dawson Knox Quiet In Win

    Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox was unable to make much of an impact during Thursday's game. He hauled in both of his targets for 17 yards in the win over the Detroit Lions. This was a disappointing outing considering quarterback Josh Allen attempted 42 passes during this game. It's unlikely that things are going to get better for Knox going forward. He'll have a tough matchup against the New England Patriots next week. Knox will be on the TE2 radar for that game.

  • Kenny Pickett A QB2 Vs. Colts On Monday Night

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett will take on the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12's Monday night game. Pickett has mostly been quiet in his rookie year as he's still looking for the first multi-passing touchdown game of his career. The Colts represent a neutral matchup for Pickett as they are allowing the 15th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position while their pass defense ranks 14th in the league in DVOA. Pickett is on the board as a low-end QB2 in fantasy heading into Week 12.

  • Gabe Davis Held In Check By Lions

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis was expected to have a strong game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday. However, he struggled to make an impact in this game. Davis hauled in four of his five targets for 38 yards in the win. He could've had a 30-yard touchdown, but it was broken up by a strong defensive effort. The good news is, Davis is seeing more usage lately. However, he has a tough matchup against the New England Patriots next week. He'll be a possible flex option for that contest.

  • Stefon Diggs Gets Targeted 15 Times

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs continues to be a big part of this offensive unit. On Thursday, Diggs was targeted 15 times, but hauled in eight passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Detroit Lions. Diggs has been held below 100 receiving yards in back-to-back games. To be honest, he's still a stud, so fantasy managers shouldn't get frustrated with him. He'll get a tough matchup against the New England Patriots next week. He'll be a low-end WR1 against the Pats elite pass defense in Week 13.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Impresses In Week 12

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie put together a show during the Week 12 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Coming into this game, McKenzie had not surpassed 40 receiving yards since Week 3. On Thursday, McKenzie hauled in six of his 10 targets for 96 yards and one touchdown in the win. Both the yardage and the targets were season highs for McKenzie. This was an odd outburst for McKenzie, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect it to continue. He'll head into a tough matchup against the New England Patriots next week. McKenzie will be a risky WR4 for that Week 13 matchup.

  • James Cook Barely Involved In Win

    Buffalo Bills running back James Cook disappointed after a great outing last week. The rookie back rushed for 86 yards on 11 carries in Week 11. However, he was not able to have the same success this week. The 23-year-old saw two carries for four yards in the win over the Detroit Lions. He also added two receptions for an additional 14 yards, but it wasn't enough to salvage his fantasy value. It's tough to trust Cook in fantasy leagues right now. Devin Singletary is the lead back and gets a majority of the carries. Cook will be a desperation flex option in deep leagues going forward.

  • Devin Singletary Rushes For 72 Yards

    Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary continued to have success on the ground during the Week 12 matchup against the Detroit Lions. He rushed 14 times for 72 yards, while adding a one-catch for eight yards through the air. It was a good day on the ground for Singletary, but quarterback Josh Allen cashed in the only rushing touchdown of the day. Despite that, Singletary averaged 5.1 yards per carry. He continues to have success even if it always don't show with touchdowns. Fantasy managers should continue to believe in Singletary as they head into a tough matchup against the New England Patriots next week. He should be a low-end RB2 for that game.

  • Josh Allen Scores Three Times In Win

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen rebounded nicely during the Week 12 matchup against the Detroit Lions. The 26-year-old has been in a bit of a slump lately, but looked better on Thursday. He completed 24-of-42 passing attempts for 253 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the win. He also added 78 yards on 10 carries with an additional score on the ground. Allen certainly made mistakes as well with his interception coming on the goal line. The Bills are struggling right now, but remain 8-3 heading into the Week 13 matchup against the New England Patriots. He'll continue to be a QB1 for that game.

  • Leonard Williams Returns To Action

    New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (knee) has returned to Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. The stud pass rusher exited during the third quarter due to an undisclosed knee issue. It seems like Williams was dealing with cramps or a minor injury. He is back on the sideline with his helmet and ready to get back into action. Fantasy managers who are using the Giants defense can breathe a sigh of relief.

  • DeVante Parker Will Play Versus Vikings

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) is active for Week 12 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. The 29-year-old was been limited during practice this week, but will give it a go in this game. He has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in Week 8. His return is good for the Pats offense, but Parker has struggled to make an impact this season. He has eclipsed 60 receiving yards three times in nine games. Fantasy managers should consider him a desperation flex option for this week.

  • Alvin Kamara Misses Thursday's Practice

    New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (illness) didn't suit up for Thursday's practice. The 27-year-old is dealing with a non-COVID related illness. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned. This is likely more of a rest day than anything else for Kamara. Fantasy managers should expect Kamara to suit up against the San Francisco 49ers. The star back has failed to score in three straight games. He should be considered a low-end RB2 for this upcoming matchup.

  • Deebo Samuel Limited During Thursday's Practice

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was limited during Thursday's practice. The 26-year-old was also limited on Wednesday, so fantasy managers should monitor his status during Friday's practice. Fantasy managers should expect Samuel to suit up for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He should be considered low-end WR1 for this upcoming matchup. Fantasy managers should check back on Friday to see if his status changes.

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) didn't suit up for practice on Thursday. The 28-year-old re-aggravated his ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 11. Head coach Brandon Staley mentioned that the team is taking things day-to-day with Williams. Fantasy managers will have to wait and see if Williams practices on Friday. He'd be a low-end WR2 for the upcoming matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Michael Badgley Makes Three Of Four Kicks In Loss

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made both of his extra point attempts but missed one of his two field goal attempts in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He ultimately delivered a 51-yard game-tying field goal late in the fourth quarter but wasn't a great fantasy option with a lack of kicking opportunities. The Lions offense is one of the best units in football so Badgley has some upside, but head coach Dan Campbell often goes for it on fourth down, so he doesn't have a secure floor.

  • D.J. Chark Scores In Loss To Bills

    Detroit Lions wide receiver D.J. Chark caught two of his five targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the narrow loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving day. He would've busted without the short touchdown reception, but it was promising to see the five-target game in his second game back from Injured Reserve (ankle). However, Josh Reynolds was clearly limited by his back injury, so if he gets back to health and Jameson Williams (knee) makes his NFL debut soon, Chark's rest-of-season outlook doesn't look great. He might fall off the fantasy radar when more competition enters the lineup. That said, he'll face his former team (Jacksonville Jaguars) next week, and might be a solid deep flex option if Williams doesn't play.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Totals 129 Yards In Loss

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught nine of his 10 targets for 122 yards and a touchdown and rushed once for seven yards in the loss to the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo came into Week 12 as one of the worst defenses against slot receivers, and St. Brown took advantage with a huge game for fantasy managers. St. Brown's floor appears to be around eight targets, so WR1 production should be expected for the rest of the season. Jameson Williams (knee) could make his NFL debut in Week 13, but St. Brown should continue to be the team's No. 1 wide receiver.

  • D'Andre Swift Handles Nine Touches in Thanksgiving Loss

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift rushed five times for 19 yards and caught four of his eight targets for 24 yards in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He also rushed for a two-point conversion. It's frustrating to see another lackluster day for Swift, but eight targets could be a positive sign in PPR leagues moving forward. It's also worth noting he came within a few yards of a touchdown on at least three occasions. The Lions offense is here to stay as at least an above-average unit, so hopefully, Swift's best days are ahead as the fantasy football playoff approach.

  • Jamaal Williams Finds End Zone Again Versus Bills

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams rushed 18 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Once again, Williams paid off in fantasy thanks to the rushing score, but his PPR ceiling proved to be low. In PPR formats, he likely won't finish as a high-end play, but he's constantly found a way to be a solid flex option. Detroit plays the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, and a Williams rushing score is expected at this point in the season.

  • Jared Goff Throws Two Touchdowns Against Bills

    Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff threw for 240 yards and two touchdowns to zero interceptions in the close loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving. The Lions offense continued to look strong against a daunting Buffalo defense, and Goff delivered as a solid fantasy starter this week. Detroit will host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday, so he could be in play for another solid fantasy performance in Week 13. Rookie wideout Jameson Williams (knee) might make his NFL debut in that game, so Goff's ceiling could be raised even more.

  • Justin Fields Puts In Another Limited Practice

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Fields is dealing with a separated shoulder and partially torn ligaments in his left, non-throwing shoulder. It's good news that it's not his throwing arm, but the 23-year-old dual-threat signal-caller feels pain every time he throws and there is some concern that the Bears might play it safe and hold their franchise QB out as a precaution. Fields has become a must-start QB1 in fantasy in his second NFL season, but he'll be a bit more risky if he plays this Sunday against a tough New York Jets defense. If he's inactive on Sunday, backup Trevor Siemian would get the start and would merely be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex formats.

  • John Wolford Returns To Full Practice

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford (neck) was listed as a full practice participant on Thursday's estimated report. Wolford was limited in Wednesday's practice. Bryce Perkins took the first-team repetitions on Wednesday with Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) being ruled out for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. But with Wolford suddenly looking healthy, it remains to be seen if the Rams will go with Perkins or Wolford under center against the Chiefs. Either way, Perkins or Wolford would be desperation low-end QB2 options for fantasy managers in superflex leagues. If Perkins gets the nod, it will be his first career start in the NFL. He's still the best bet to start for LA this weekend.

  • Von Miller Dealing With Knee Sprain

    Updating a previous report, the initial diagnosis for Buffalo Bills star pass-rusher Von Miller (knee) is a knee sprain, according to a source. Nobody has ruled out a more serious injury, but a knee sprain would be good news for the Bills and Miller. He has an MRI exam and other tests scheduled for Friday to confirm the initial diagnosis. Miller injured his knee late in the first half of Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions and was carted off the field. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Miller will surely miss time, but the question is how much. If it's just a knee sprain, Miller should be able to return for the postseason. He came into Thursday's game with eight sacks, so losing Miller's pass-rushing prowess is a big blow to the Bills defensive unit.

  • Tyler Higbee, Allen Robinson II Limited Thursday

    Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) and wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) were both listed as limited on the team's estimated practice report on Thursday. It's the second straight limited tag for Robinson, while Higbee gets an upgrade after not practicing on Wednesday. Higbee and Robinson both appear to be on the right side of questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but we'll know more on their statuses on Friday. If Higbee cannot play or is limited, Brycen Hopkins would be in line to start for the Rams. If Robinson is limited at all or out on Sunday, Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek would be the team's clear top two receivers. Nobody in the Rams offense will have much upside with quarterback Bryce Perkins expected to make his first career start in Kansas City.

  • Demarcus Robinson Added To Week 12 Injury Report

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (hip) was added to the Week 12 injury report after he missed practice on Thursday. This is something to watch after Robinson practiced in full on Wednesday. The 28-year-old surprisingly led the Ravens in receiving in last week's win over the Carolina Panthers, going for nine catches and 128 yards. We'll have a better idea of Robinson's status for Sunday's game on Friday. If Robinson is out or limited in Week 12, James Proche and Tylan Wallace would see added playing time alongside Devin Duvernay. Before Robinson's blowup game in Week 11, he had only 16 catches on 29 targets for 152 yards and one touchdown in nine games, so fantasy managers would be rolling the dice if they use him as a WR4/flex coming off his big game.

  • Von Miller Carted Off With Knee Injury, Won't Return

    Buffalo Bills pass-rusher Von Miller (knee) was carted off the field due to a knee injury he suffered late in the second half of the Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday, and he has been ruled out. Before leaving the contest, Miller had one solo tackle. The extent of his knee injury is unknown at this time, but the Bills would take a huge hit if Miller is forced to miss time beyond this week with the injury. The 33-year-old eight-time Pro Bowler came into Thursday's game with eight sacks, 20 tackles (17 solo), 10 tackles for loss, 11 QB hits, and a forced fumble in 10 games played. Check back later for more updates on the extent of Miller's knee injury.

  • Lamar Jackson, Gus Edwards Practice In Full

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (hip) and running back Gus Edwards (hamstring) were both upgraded to full practices on Thursday. Jackson missed Wednesday's practice, while Edwards was limited. The 25-year-old signal-caller's injury has been downplayed, and he will suit up in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he'll be a must-start, high-end QB1 for fantasy managers. Edwards missed his second straight game last week but is trending in the right direction to play this Sunday. Even if Edwards is able to return in Week 12, Kenyan Drake figures to lead Baltimore's backfield, which will make Edwards a tough sell as anything more than a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.

  • Terrace Marshall Jr. Limited Thursday

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day this week on Thursday. It doesn't seem that Marshall's shoulder injury is serious enough to keep him from facing the Denver Broncos in Week 12 on Sunday, but fantasy managers will want to check back for Friday's final injury report. The 22-year-old has 17 receptions on 31 targets for 320 yards and one touchdown in eight games in his second NFL season, but he'll be a shaky WR4/5 in deeper fantasy leagues if he plays this weekend. The Panthers will have a new starting quarterback (Sam Darnold) for the third time in as many weeks this weekend against a stingy Broncos defense.

  • Latavius Murray Limited Again In Practice Thursday

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Murray's status is worth watching heading into this weekend's game against the Carolina Panthers. If for some reason he's unable to play, the Broncos would be extremely thin in the backfield after releasing Melvin Gordon III earlier this week. Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve. If he's active, Murray will be Denver's primary back and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in Denver's anemic offense. With Gordon gone and Edmonds on the shelf, Marlon Mack is now the handcuff option for fantasy managers that have Murray rostered.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Listed As DNPs Thursday

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) were both listed as non-participants in practice on Thursday for the second straight day. Unless they can return to practice on Friday, things are trending in the wrong direction for both Jeudy and Hamler to be able to play this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. If both Jeudy and Hamler miss another game, Kendall Hinton will see more playing time as the No. 2 receiver behind Courtland Sutton in Week 12. With Jeudy and Hamler out last weekend against the Las Vegas Raiders, Sutton caught five of seven targets for 80 yards, while Hinton caught all three of his targets for 57 receiving yards. Sutton will have WR2 upside if Jeudy misses another game.

  • Jeff Okudah Officially Inactive On Thanksgiving

    Detroit Lions cornerback Jeff Okudah (concussion) is officially inactive for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday. Detroit's defense will also be without defensive end Charles Harris (groin) and Joshua Pascal (knee) against a potent Bills offense. Okudah suffered a concussion in last week's upset victory over the New York Giants, and he'll miss his first game of the season this week as a result. Hopefully the 23-year-old will be able to clear the league's protocols and return to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. With Okudah out, the Lions secondary will be even more vulnerable against a Bills offense that should have a field day on Turkey Day.

  • Micah Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence Will Play Thursday

    Dallas Cowboys standout defenders Micah Parsons (ankle, knee) and DeMarcus Lawrence (foot) will play on Thanksgiving on Thursday against the New York Giants despite being listed as questionable. Lawrence is playing through a stress fracture in his foot and already has a screw in it and had surgery in the past on both fifth metatarsals. If you've been rolling with Parsons or Lawrence in IDP fantasy leagues, you'll have them both available in a good matchup against the Giants to kick off Week 12 action. The Cowboys defensive unit in fantasy will also be a must-start against their division rivals on Turkey Day.

  • Zach Wilson Has A Case Of The Yips

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, who was officially benched by head coach Robert Saleh for Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, is reportedly dealing with a case of the yips. It's an issue that isn't new, as sources around the team noticed that Wilson was off earlier this spring while struggling to make the easy throws while his mechanics were out of whack. A knee injury in training camp didn't help Wilson's issues at all, and he clearly struggled in his seven starts before getting benched this week. The Jets are adamant that Wilson is still their franchise signal-caller, but fantasy managers that have him in dynasty/keeper leagues can't be feeling great right now. This Sunday, Wilson will be a healthy scratch as the No. 3 behind Mike White and Joe Flacco.
