  • Latavius Murray has no history of concussions
    Latavius Murray's concussion in Week 12 was the first of his football career.

    Advice: Murray doesn't have any history of concussions. After breaking out for 112 yards and two touchdowns on Thursday night, the Raiders are hoping he won't need an extended absence. Murray has 10 days to get cleared for Week 13, giving him a chance to return without missing time. Rotoworld.com

Theo Riddick will continue to replace him as the Lions' passing down back, and is on the RB3/FLEX radar. Bush should have a decent chance of returning in Week 13.

The 49ers have been forcing the ball to Davis over the last several weeks, but he has only managed four catches and 34 yards total over the last three games. Traditionally dominant in the red zone, Davis has not even been targeted inside the 20 since Week 1. Davis is too risky to play in seasonal leagues, but could be worth a punt in daily formats.

Earlier this week, OC Hue Jackson hinted at easing Bernard back into the mix after his three-game absence. Bernard also worked with the receivers last week, suggesting he'll be featured more as a pass-catcher out of the backfield while Hill hammers it between the tackles. Hill is a strong RB2 with RB1 upside. Bernard is merely a FLEX. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Ya think? Murray didn't get the start Thursday, but entered early in the first quarter and capped off the second and fourth possessions with 11- and 90-yard touchdown runs, respectively. Murray has always been long on talent; it just took Sparano taking over as the coach for the Raiders to realize it and start giving him more snaps. Murray has 10 days to get cleared of his concussion before Week 13 at St. Louis. He has maybe the toughest Weeks 13-16 schedule of any running back. Rotoworld.com

    Latavius Murray was forced from Oakland's Week 12 game against the Chiefs with a concussion, and will not return.

    Advice: What a shame. Finally unleashed behind finished veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew, Murray rushed four times for 112 yards and two touchdowns. He notched scores of 11 and 90 yards, using vicious cutbacks to break free on both runs. The second was the longest play by any player in the NFL this season. Murray took a helmet-to-helmet hit on his fourth rush, however, and was obviously woozy. If there's good news, it's that he has 10 days to get healthy for next week's game against the Rams. It's safe to assume Murray will be the Raiders' new starter when healthy. Following his 90-yard score, Murray's 107 yards on the evening represented 14.4 percent of the Raiders' season total.

  • Travaris Cadet (hamstring) sitting Thursday
    Travaris Cadet missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: It's a new injury for Pierre Thomas' fill-in. As usual, the Saints haven't offered any clues as to Cadet's status, so for now he can only be considered questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens. The fact that the Saints waived Brian Leonard earlier this week could be a sign they expect Cadet to suit up for Week 12, but that's pure speculation. His practice status will be updated on Friday.

    Advice: "Due to public safety concerns in light of the ongoing weather emergency in Western New York, Sunday's Jets-Bills game will not be played in Buffalo," the league said in a statement. It remains unclear where the game will be moved, but most signs point to a Monday tilt in Detroit or Washington D.C. New York apparently isn't an option because of the unfair advantage it would afford the Jets. Rotoworld.com

    Pierre Thomas (shoulder) returned to Saints practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

    Advice: It's Thomas' first practice of any kind since he went down in Week 7. Speaking afterward, Thomas played coy on his status, but was in "high spirits." The Saints have badly missed Thomas in the screen game, and need him back more than ever with Brandin Cooks (thumb) done for the season. Thomas' return shouldn't put a huge dent in Mark Ingram's workload, as the backs play much-different roles. Khiry Robinson (arm) remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com

    Arian Foster (groin) will be a game-time decision for Week 12.

    Advice: It's the same thing coach Bill O'Brien said last week, though Foster didn't come close to suiting up against the Browns. Foster was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday after being "limited" on Wednesday. He appears to have slightly better odds of suiting up for Week 12 than he did in Week 11, but his status still remains murky, at best. Foster will be a top-five RB1 if he goes, but owners can't be counting on it. Keep Alfred Blue on speed dial as a plug-and-play RB2. Rotoworld.com

Nevertheless, Oakland has trudged on giving carries to has-beens Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. That might change in Thursday's game against the Chiefs, as ESPN's Adam Caplan has reported Latavius Murray will finally be in for a bigger workload.

    Advice: Gordon practiced Wednesday for the first time since August and it went well, with Brian Hoyer targeting him tons. Gordon's "pitch count" will be raised on Thursday, meaning the Browns will give him more reps ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons. Pettine's pleasure with where Gordon is at physically and mentally right now bodes well for his chances of seeing something around 75-85 percent of the snaps in his 2014 debut. Although we wouldn't expect a massive game given the circumstances, he's a must-start in season-long formats. Rotoworld.com

    Coach Mike Pettine said Wednesday that Josh Gordon will be on a "pitch count" this week.

    Advice: It's a bit unclear if Pettine was referring to practices or Sunday's game against the Falcons. What is clear is that he's trying to temper expectations. "There needs to be a progression. The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that," said Pettine, who also talked to Ross Tucker about research the Browns have done on higher injury rates after long layoffs. We're not expecting Gordon to play 100 percent of the snaps Sunday after three months off, but even a limited Gordon is a must-play in season-long formats. He's a legit All-Pro talent for a playoff-contending team desperately in need of weaponry. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Buffalo area got hit with even more snow overnight and a travel ban in the area remains in effect. At this point, it's difficult to see the Week 12 game at the Ralph against the Jets going down Sunday. Not only are the Bills at a massive disadvantage having not practiced yet this week, but even New York governor Andrew Cuomo is calling a Sunday game "impractical" due to public safety concerns.

    Advice: Playcaller Hue Jackson isn't naming a Week 12 starter, which leaves the door open for Hill to take over as the Bengals' primary runner, even with Bernard all set to play against the Texans. "I think my concern is keeping him healthy,’ Jackson said of Bernard, who missed the last three games. Asked if Hill has earned a bigger role, Jackson replied "I think he deserves it. ... I think Jeremy has done a tremendous job and he earns the right to play, there's no question about that. But it's always good to have two really good runners." Expect Hill to lead the Bengals in carries against Houston, and possibly carry the bulk of the workload the rest of the way. In fantasy, he's a borderline RB1. Rotoworld.com

Although coaches haven't been permitted to be in contact with him during the suspension, he has been allowed to work out at the facility and is reportedly in excellent shape. We'd expect him to hit the ground running in a Kyle Shanahan offense that is predicated on a strong run game and a voluminous/effective "X" receiver.

    Fred Jackson (knee) said he expects to play in Sunday's Week 12 game against the Jets.

    Advice: Coach Doug Marrone already said that if the Bills had played on Sunday in Week 11, he felt Jackson would have been able to play. Now F-Jax is expressing optimism even though he had a "little setback" during Tuesday's practice. We'd expect a committee kind of approach that also features Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon against the Jets' top-4 run defense. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: We have no idea what took the Raiders so long to start giving Murray chances, but he responded on his seven touches Sunday, leading the team in rushing. Murray is a straight-linish, upright runner with flaws, but Oakland has nothing to lose at this point by playing him. The 24-year-old "SPARQ" freak is worth rostering in 12- and 14-team leagues for the fantasy stretch run. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Thomas went down in the first quarter of Sunday's loss at St. Louis and was ruled out for the day shortly thereafter. He likely has something more than a mere Grade 1 sprain, but the lack of a "high" component is encouraging as he preps for a Monday MRI. Backup Jacob Tamme had 4-31-0 on 10 targets in a relief role Sunday. Rotoworld.com

Seemingly desperate to get him touches, the 49ers actually handed the ball to VD as a running back (it went for a 4-yard gain). Davis now has six catches for 55 yards in his last four games combined.

Ingram has now gotten the ball a preposterous 116 times over the Saints' past four games, a number they know they have to rein in.

    Advice: The only negative for Hill's owners was that he got held out of the end zone. Hill extended runs all afternoon long, especially in the fourth quarter as the Saints desperately needed a stop. Hill was allowed to get into a rhythm one week after the Bengals went away from the run in their ugly loss to the Browns, and he responded by almost single-handedly killing the clock. Hill has now rushed 63 times for 361 yards (5.73 YPC) in the three games Giovani Bernard has missed with a hip injury.

The Seahawks have plenty of cap space for 2015, and should be able to fit a Russell Wilson mega-extension into that along with Lynch's $8.5 million cap hit.

    Advice: Thomas appears all but certain to miss his fourth-consecutive game. Travaris Cadet will continue to handle passing-down work against the Bengals. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster 'definitely' game-time decision
    Speaking Thursday, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Arian Foster (groin) will "definitely" be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Advice: Foster remained sidelined Thursday. There was early-week optimism that Foster would be ready to rock coming off the Texans' bye, but all current signs suggest he's no better than 50-50 to suit up. It's a nightmare for fantasy owners, and a shame since the Browns have one of the league's very-worst run defenses. Alfred Blue will be a plug-and-play RB2 if Foster sits. Foster's status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

  • Delanie Walker sitting again on Thursday
    Delanie Walker (concussion) remained sidelined Thursday.

    Advice: Walker's odds of suiting up against the Steelers are looking extremely poor. Owners need to be making other plans. Rotoworld.com

  • Doug Martin back at Bucs practice Thursday
    Doug Martin (ankle) returned to Bucs practice Thursday.

    Advice: He'll likely be listed as "limited." There's now a chance Martin will be ready for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but it's far from a given. Even if Martin does return, it will likely be as the No. 3 on the depth chart behind Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey. Martin is no longer a consideration in 10-12 team leagues, and is barely on the radar in 14-team formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Fred Jackson 'almost certainly' out
    A source tells the Buffalo News that Fred Jackson (groin) almost certainly won't play in Thursday night's game at Miami.

    Advice: The short week has proven too much to overcome for Jackson after he handled 26 snaps against the Chiefs Sunday. So the Bills will have to go into a pivotal division game with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown as their top-two backs. Look for the inside-running Dixon to draw the start, but we'd rather take a shot on Brown as the explosive back that's better in the pass game. Jackson owners need to sit tight in the hopes he gets to 100 percent for a tasty fantasy playoff schedule (vs. GB Week 15, at OAK Week 16). Rotoworld.com

  • Brent Grimes expected to shadow Watkins
    Brent Grimes is expected to shadow Sammy Watkins Thursday night.

    Advice: Watkins' groin does not appear to be an issue after he played on 93 percent of the snaps Sunday and practiced in full this week. However, the presence of Grimes knocks Watkins down to more of a WR2/3 this week. The good news is that when these teams matched up in Week 2, Watkins went 8-117-1 even though E.J. Manuel was at quarterback (as pointed out in Evan Silva's Matchup column). Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Ingram (shoulder) limited Wednesday
    Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: The Saints also limited Ingram last week before giving him 30 touches. Ingram's shoulder injury isn't a concern for his Week 11 status. He'll be a top-10 running back play for Sunday's matchup with the Bengals. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: As did Khiry Robinson (arm). Thomas at least did some work on a rehab field, suggesting he's close to a return, but he appears doubtful for Week 11. Rotoworld.com

    Anthony Fasano (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Fasano has a bruised knee. His status for Week 11 is uncertain. If Fasano can't go, Travis Kelce could see a much-deserved uptick in snaps. No. 3 tight end Demetrius Harris broke his foot in Week 10 and was sent to injured reserve. Rotoworld.com
