  • Dwayne Allen DNP again Friday, likely out Sun.
    Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

    Advice: Allen has missed practice all week and is fully expected to sit out Week 12 against the Jaguars. Coby Fleener is a plug-and-play mid-to-high TE1. Allen is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Consider him week-to-week. Rotoworld.com

  • A.D. looking for 'fresh start' in 2015?
    Adrian Peterson admitted "maybe it's best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else" in 2015.

    Advice: Peterson sat down for an exclusive interview with USA Today's Tom Pelissero, a former Vikings beat writer. You can read it in its entirety at the link below. Peterson has supporters in the Vikings organization, including coach Mike Zimmer, but a change of scenery may be best for all parties. There's no way the Vikings are going to pay Peterson the $15 million-plus he's owed in 2015. They can try and trade him in the spring. Turning 30 in March, A.D. still has gas in the tank.

  • T-Rich expected to pick up 3rd-down duties
    The Indianapolis Star expects Trent Richardson to handle third-down duties with Ahmad Bradshaw (broken leg) done for the season.

    Advice: Bradshaw played 84 percent of the third-down snaps the first 11 weeks. That work now falls into Richardson's lap, which means more touches and opportunities for big plays. It's up to Richardson to make the most of it. Expect Richardson to flirt with 20 touches per game the final six weeks, giving him a high floor as an RB2 in one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Rotoworld.com

  • Hill expected to lead Bengals in carries Sun.
    The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner expects a 65:35 split favoring Jeremy Hill in the Bengals backfield Week 12 against the Texans.

    Advice: Sounds about right. Hill has severely outplayed Bernard this season, averaging 5.73 YPC in his three starts compared to 4.09 for Gio. 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

  • Sparano: Latavius Murray has earned more snaps
    Coach Tony Sparano admits Latavius Murray "earned more snaps" after his four-carry, 112-yard, two-touchdown effort against the Chiefs on Thursday night.

    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

  • Devonta Freeman to see more touches?
    ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure expects Devonta Freeman to see more touches in the wake of Antone Smith's season-ending broken leg.

    Advice: Smith broke his leg last week. Freeman saw six carries -- his second-highest total of the season -- against the Panthers. He's the clear No. 2 to Steven Jackson, but Jackson has pulled ahead as the top dog in Atlanta's backfield. Smith wasn't getting more than 2-4 touches per game before his injury anyway. Don't expect a drastic uptick in Freeman's workload. There's no standalone appeal. Rotoworld.com

    Frankie Hammond caught 1-of-3 targets for six yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: With Donnie Avery and Junior Hemingway ailing, the Chiefs needed Hammond to step up. Instead he dropped a critical third-down pass (which was overturned by a penalty) and failed to come back to the ball on the final play of the game. It was a dismal performance.

    Advice: For once, Jones' touchdown didn't come in garbage time. The 30-year-old veteran ran a beautiful route to get open for his nine-yard score with 1:42 remaining. It ended up holding up as the game winner. Jones still has plenty of juice left in his legs, but he's going to keep struggling for consistency in the Raiders' bogged-down passing attack.

The Raiders would be within their rights to release MJD during their long 10-day layoff between now and Week 13, but we don't expect that to happen.

    Advice: McFadden once again led the Raiders in (ineffective) touches, but refreshingly, that's not how they drew it up. Oakland came out handing the ball off to Latavius Murray after DMC drew the "start," but a wildly effective Murray (4/112/2) was limited to only four carries by a concussion. Then McFadden took over and the Raiders' rushing attack went back in the tank. DMC simply doesn't make defenders miss. He's now averaging 3.37 yards per carry. Provided Murray can get cleared for Week 13, we fully expect him to be the Raiders' new lead rusher. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bowe may have fallen asleep in the first half, as he drew only two targets as Alex Smith struggled to get anything resembling "offense" going. Smith finally started driving the ball after the break, but it was too little, too late in a game where the Chiefs let the 0-10 Raiders hang around far too long. Bowe's physical skills have declined, but there's no reason for him to be as lightly utilized as he's been this season. He's barely on the WR4 map. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Kelce was Zeus-ing every time he touched the ball, shedding tacklers and delivering punishment. That includes some thundering blocks. But coach Andy Reid and Alex Smith still only saw fit to look his way five times. With the Chiefs having the league's thinnest receiver corps, there's simply no reason for Kelce not to be drawing a minimum of 8-10 weekly targets. With 10 days to game plan for Week 13's showdown with the Broncos, perhaps Reid will come to that realization over the long weekend. Kelce remains a boom-or-bust TE1. Rotoworld.com

    Jamaal Charles rushed 19 times for 80 yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders, adding four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: As usual, Charles was the Chiefs' best player. As sometimes happens, coach Andy Reid kept going away from him at critical junctures, and it may have cost Kansas City the game. Charles touched the ball just once on the Chiefs' final two drives, something that simply can't happen in a game you lose by four points. Charles' all-world athleticism was on full display on his 30-yard touchdown reception, as he turned a dumpoff into a pin-balling score. The top-three RB1 should have a big Week 13 against the Broncos. Charles is matchup proof. Rotoworld.com

  • Latavius Murray done for day with concussion
    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.

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.

"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."

Commissioner Roger Goodell is now officially Peterson's judge, jury and executioner, and the NFL has made it quite clear it's not planning to be lenient. If you've been stashing AD in hopes of a late-season return, the odds are now slim enough that he should be let go. Four months shy of his 30th birthday, Peterson is at a career crossroads.

  • Burden of running game now on Richardson
    The Indy Star says the "burden" of the running game is now going to fall on Trent Richardson.

    Advice: It's a scary thought for the Colts in the wake of Ahmad Bradshaw's fracture. Richardson has been among the least effective backs in the NFL over the last two seasons, averaging 3.12 YPC with five rushing touchdowns in 23 games as a Colt. The difference between T-Rich and Bradshaw was night and day. Already getting 15.2 touches per game, it's now conceivable that Richardson will get up around 20 going forward -- especially in clock-killing situations like the one we'll likely see in Week 12 when the Colts host the Jags. He's a volume-based RB2 with limited upside. Rotoworld.com

  • NFL suspends Adrian Peterson rest of season
    The NFL has suspended Adrian Peterson without pay for at least the remainder of this season.

    Advice: Roger Goodell does not see the nine games Peterson was forced to spend on Commissioner-Exempt list (with pay) as "time served." They are now trying to keep AP off the field via the Personal Conduct policy after he pled "no contest" to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a discipline incident with his son. Peterson's lawyers and the NFLPA are appealing the suspension right away, but the NFL has really dug its heels in here. Stashers should just sit tight for a few more days as the dust settles even though it's looking bleaker than ever that he'll play this year. Rotoworld.com

Travis Kelce figures to go back to playing 55-60 percent of Kansas City's offensive snaps, although that isn't a lock. Kelce will remain in the lower-end TE1 conversation against the Raiders.

    Travis Kelce played on 50-of-52 snaps (96.1 percent) in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

    Advice: Kelce's previous season-high for snaps was 66.1 percent. The playing time is encouraging even if his box score (3-37-0 on five targets with one lost fumble) was discouraging on a day Alex Smith only attempted 16 passes. Kelce was asked to execute just 15 pass routes as the Chiefs took the air out of the ball. If Anthony Fasano's knee injury keeps him out Thursday night, we'd fire up Kelce again as a reasonable TE1 in the hopes a more pass-happy gameplan is needed. Rotoworld.com

We'd say it's a no-brainer to now give 24-year-old athletic freak Murray the feature role down the stretch, but this is one of the most dysfunctional organizations in pro sports. Murray, who rushed four times for 47 yards and caught three passes for 16 yards on a season-high 27 snaps Sunday, is a "wait and see" kind of add. Hopefully, the Raiders will give him a big chunk of work against the Chiefs on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com

    The Colts believe Dwayne Allen suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: High ankle sprains can vary in severity from the kind that only cost Jamaal Charles one game earlier this year to the kind that can sideline a player for a month or more. So we'll have to wait for further testing results before getting a timetable on Allen. But it's certainly not a good injury for a supremely talented player whose career was already stunted by a severe hip injury in 2013. With Allen sidelined for the majority of Sunday night's game, Coby Fleener put 7-144-0 on the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

    Travis Kelce (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 11.

    Advice: It's the second straight week Kelce has been listed on the injury report with his ribs issue, but practiced in full. Finally staring at a bigger workload with Anthony Fasano (knee) highly questionable, Zeus should be started in every format of fantasy. 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

  • Adrian Peterson hearing is 2pm ET Monday
    Adrian Peterson's expedited grievance hearing is set for 2pm ET Monday.

    Advice: The NFLPA's case will be heard for why Peterson should be immediately reinstated to the NFL. The case must be resolved within five days after that, November 22 -- one day before the Vikings host the Packers in Week 12. Stashers can only sit tight and wait for the case to play out.

  • Arian Foster (groin) on status: We shall see
    Arian Foster (groin) said the "plan" is to play in Sunday's game against the Browns, but added that "we shall see."

    Advice: When going over his team's injuries, coach Bob O'Brien seemed optimistic on Brian Cushing (knee) and Jadeveon Clowney (knee). O'Brien was more guarded on Foster, calling his running back "definitely day to day." We'll know more as the week moves along. For now, Alfred Blue should not be on any waiver wires as the Texans get set to face a Browns defense that gets shredded by the run. Rotoworld.com

  • Andy Reid: Kelce up to speed with whole deal
    Speaking Wednesday, coach Andy Reid said Travis Kelce is now prepared for a bigger workload if Anthony Fasano (knee) is out or limited.

    Advice: This quote equates to porn for fantasy footballers: "At the beginning of the year, we kind of kept the package (for Kelce) smaller," Reid said. "Then we've added to it. He's really kind of up to speed with the whole deal right now." Fasano's knee contusion is not considered overly serious, but he did miss practice Wednesday. Things are shaping up for Kelce to have an expanded role against a Seahawks defense that gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. If Fasano ends up inactive, Zeus will be unleashed. Rotoworld.com

  • Arian Foster doesn't practice Wednesday
    Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The Texans are listing Foster as day to day with his groin injury. It's not a good sign that he wasn't able to practice, but Foster plans to play in Week 11. Fantasy owners need to handcuff Foster with Alfred Blue. Foster's status will be updated again no later than Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Fasano not practicing Wednesday
    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

  • Jerry: We want Dez to finish career in Dallas
    Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he hopes to have walk-year WR Dez Bryant finish his career in Dallas.

    Advice: Jones confirmed the sides have had "serious" contract talks. Jones' son, Stephen, says the Cowboys have made some "really nice" offers, and are confident the sides will come to an accord. For his part, Bryant has said he'd be "highly disappointed" to be franchise tagged. DeMarcus Ware notwithstanding, Jerry rarely lets homegrown talent get away. Bryant should remain with Big D for 2015 and beyond. Rotoworld.com

  • AP status will be known by Nov. 22 at latest
    Adrian Peterson's NFL status will be determined by Saturday, Nov. 22 at the latest.

    Advice: PFT's Mike Florio points out that under Article 43 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, a hearing on an expedited grievance must occur within seven days of the filing (it will be Nov. 17 in this case). The case must then be resolved within five days after that hearing. Of course, things could go faster than that but the NFL appears to be dragging its heels here in an effort to keep Peterson off the field. A source tells ESPN's Ed Werder that the case between the NFLPA and the NFL "could get ugly." Regardless, Peterson needs to remain on all fantasy rosters as the Nov. 22 date is one day before the Vikings host the Packers in Week 12. If he gets reinstated, there is plenty of season left.
