Based on how poorly Tate played in Cleveland and Asiata's plodding tendencies, Banyard may be Minnesota's best running back option at this point. Jerick McKinnon won't play due to a back injury.

  • Larry Fitz limited, will be game-day decision
    Updating a previous item, the Cardinals listed Larry Fitzgerald (questionable, knee) as a "limited" participant in Friday's practice, and are calling him a game-time decision for Week 13.

    Advice: Reporters didn't see Fitz on the practice field to open the session, so it was assumed he didn't participate. The Cardinals are claiming he did. "If he goes, he goes," coach Bruce Arians said, insisting Fitzgerald wouldn't be "limited" in Sunday's game at Atlanta if he's active. "That’s the only reason he would play, because he can play." Arians added Fitzgerald is "progressing nicely" off his MCL sprain. He'll be a dicey WR3 option in a late-afternoon game. Rotoworld.com

  • Free agent Ray Rice wins appeal, reinstated
    Free agent Ray Rice has won his appeal and will be reinstated to the NFL.

    Advice: He's free to sign with any team. Unfortunately, finding a taker is an even bigger hurdle for Rice than winning his appeal, which was expected. A team interested in the declining 28-year-old (in January) would likely have to embrace a major public relations hit after Rice was suspended for socking his drunken then-fiancee in an elevator. Rice hasn't been effective on the field in quite some time. There's no guarantee he is still capable of helping a team. Rotoworld.com

    Texans coach Bill O'Brien reiterated Friday that he expects Arian Foster (groin, questionable) to play Sunday against Tennessee.

    Advice: Foster's fantasy owners should be doing cartwheels right now because the Titans have arguably the leakiest run defense in the league. Foster participated in practice on some level every day this week, and the Texans' medical staff wouldn't be letting him back in the fold if he weren't close to full strength. He'll be a top-shelf RB1 in this cupcake matchup. Rotoworld.com

The Vikings will turn to some combination of Joe Banyard, Matt Asiata, and perhaps Ben Tate against the Panthers. Tate didn't play a snap last week, while Banyard played 30 and was effective on limited touches.

"He did work with our (athletic performance) people today and got good reports on where he was in terms of moving around," said Smith. "I feel confident, still, that he'll play on Sunday."

    Frank Gore managed 39 yards on 13 carries in the 49ers' Week 12 victory over the Redskins.

    Advice: The 49ers predictably had very little success running the ball on Washington's stout front. Gore contributed to San Francisco's turnover-filled day with a lost fumble in the fourth quarter. He was also "vultured" by Carlos Hyde on a fourth-quarter TD run, which proved the game winner. With a matchup against the Seahawks on deck, Gore will be a dicey bet as more than a low-expectations RB2/flex on Thanksgiving night. Gore is still a rock-solid all-around football player, but he's understandably lost a lot of "juice" as a runner during his age-31 season. He also wore down during last year's stretch run.

  • Larry Fitzgerald in danger of missing Week 13
    Larry Fitzgerald's knee sprain is not responding as the Cardinals had hoped.

    Advice: Coach Bruce Arians conceded that Fitzgerald "couldn't run" during pregame warmups. It's not overly surprising considering he sustained a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Week 11, which is often a multi-week injury. We'd consider Fitz very questionable for Week 13 at Atlanta, which makes impressive rookie John Brown a must-add. Brown had 3-61-0 at Seattle Sunday and has shown an ability to do much more in plus matchups. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Mathews runs for 12-105-1 vs. Rams
    Ryan Mathews rushed for 105 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries in the Chargers' Week 12 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Mathews ran all over the Rams in the first half and ended an early third-quarter possession with a 32-yard touchdown scamper. But two Rams landed on top of him at the end of the run, and Mathews ended up missing about 20 minutes of game time with a shoulder injury before returning late in the fourth. He appears to be fine for Week 13 against the Ravens, where he'll be an RB2. Rotoworld.com

  • Vernon Davis continues struggles in Week 12
    Vernon Davis secured 3-of-5 targets for 21 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: Davis' most notable play was a unforgivable third-quarter dropped pass that would have gone for a substantial gain. There are whispers Davis has mailed it in after the Niners failed to honor his offseason contract demands. He looks like a player incapable of helping any team at this stage of his career. Davis has also drawn poor blocking grades from Pro Football Focus. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Mathews hurts shoulder on 32-yard TD run
    Ryan Mathews went to the locker room with a shoulder injury after rushing for a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

    Advice: Mathews was running all over the Rams with 11 carries for 102 yards and the touchdown before leaving. After knocking off the rust in his Week 11 return from a sprained MCL, Mathews was looking good with 110 total yards. Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are handling backfield duties with Mathews out. He returned to the sidelines without his shoulder pads, suggesting he's done for the day. Rotoworld.com

  • Cordarrelle Patterson limited to two catches
    Cordarrelle Patterson had two catches for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Patterson was a non-factor, though he was able to draw some double teams. He briefly exited in the fourth quarter with knee/ankle injuries, but later returned. Patterson saw fewer targets than Charles Johnson, Greg Jennings, and Kyle Rudolph. He remains a highly-inconsistent WR4. Patterson won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 13 against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com

  • Roddy White catches nine passes vs. Browns
    Roddy White caught 9-of-10 targets for 96 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: White did yeoman's work on short routes and over the middle, keeping the chains moving in a game where the Falcons' offense was often discombobulated. He's now drawn at least 10 targets in three of the Falcons' past five games, and is averaging 9.8 in the process. Finally healthy, White is again an every-week WR2 with WR1 upside. Rotoworld.com

    Cecil Shorts caught one pass for six yards in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Shorts didn't see a target until deep into the second half. One of our favorite Week 12 value plays, Shorts couldn't get anything going with Blake Bortles crumbling in the pocket and refusing to take any shots downfield. Shorts will be a WR4 against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and the Giants in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerick McKinnon held to 62 total yards
    Jerick McKinnon had 15 carries for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: He added three catches for nine yards. McKinnon was a near every-down player with Matt Asiata sidelined, with Joe Banyard spelling him on third downs. He had a long run of just 10 yards, and didn't get any red-zone chances. Ben Tate didn't see the field and isn't a threat to McKinnon's role. McKinnon will be a boom-or-bust RB2 in Week 13 against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com

Meanwhile, John Brown will start against the Legion of Boom Sunday.

    Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will not play in Sunday's Week 12 game at Seattle.

    Advice: Fighting a Grade 2 MCL sprain, Fitzgerald just isn't quite ready. Considering he was a true game-time call, we suspect he'll be ready for a nice Week 13 matchup against the Falcons. John Brown, the exact kind of receiver that gives the Legion of Boom problems, will start opposite Michael Floyd. Rotoworld.com

    Arian Foster is inactive for Week 12 against the Bengals.

    Advice: Alfred Blue gets the start in place of Foster. For the second straight week, Blue is a candidate for a lot of volume in a plus matchup. The Texans' Week 12 inactives, in addition to Foster, are CB Kareem Jackson, QB Tom Savage, WR DeVier Posey, S Josh Aubrey, LB Max Bullough, and T Jeff Adams. Rotoworld.com

  • Fitzgerald needs a 'miracle' to play Week 12
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "it would take a miracle" for Larry Fitzgerald (knee) to play Week 12 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Fitzgerald didn't practice at all this week and appears to be on the wrong side of the questionable tag. He's battling a sprained MCL. If Fitzgerald sits, Michael Floyd and John Brown will start at receiver with Jaron Brown filling in as the No. 3. John Brown would make for an interesting play against a Seahawks defense that tends to get burned by smaller, faster receivers. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Arian Foster likely out vs. Bengals
    The Houston Chronicle's John McClain "would be surprised" if Arian Foster (groin) is able to play Week 12 against the Bengals.

    Advice: This meshes with other reports throughout the weekend. Foster was unable to practice all week and is expected to miss his second straight game. It'll be the Alfred Blue show once again this week after he racked up 36 carries in Week 11 against the Browns. Expect another heavy workload with Jonathan Grimes pitching in as the change-of-pace. Blue shapes up as a borderline RB1/2. Rotoworld.com

  • Harbaugh: Vernon Davis 'ready to break out'
    49ers coach Jim Harbaugh feels like Vernon Davis is "ready to break out."

    Advice: Harbaugh used a confusing olive jar analogy in his rambling explanation, but the point was clear. Whether or not the breakout is actually coming is less clear. 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.

  • 'Very, very low' chance Arian Foster suits up
    ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli said the chances Arian Foster (groin, questionable) plays Week 12 against the Bengals are "very, very low."

    Advice: Foster did not practice on Thursday or Friday. The Texans are still calling Foster a "game-time decision," but every indication is Foster will miss his second straight game. Alfred Blue saw 36 carries as Foster's replacement Week 11. He will be a borderline RB1 against the Bengals' struggling run defense. 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

    Vikings OC Norv Turner considers Matt Asiata (concussion) "in doubt" for Week 12.

According to Turner, Tate is just an "insurance" policy with McKinnon battling a minor back injury and Matt Asiata (concussion) unlikely for Week 12. If Tate is going to threaten McKinnon's No. 1 status, it's not going to be in Week 12 with just four days to learn the playbook. McKinnon will be a boom-or-bust RB2 against the Packers.

    Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not practicing again Thursday.

    Advice: The oft-injured Reed pulled his right hamstring in last week's loss to the Bucs. A left hamstring pull earlier this season cost him four games. There's no word on the severity of this injury, but given his history and his inability to practice we'd consider him extremely questionable for Sunday's game at San Francisco right now. If Reed sits, desperate owners can turn to backup Niles Paul. Paul averaged 4.5 catches for 58.2 yards with one touchdown during that four-game stretch as a starter. Rotoworld.com

He's doesn't have a full grasp of the new offense, doesn't run crisp routes and simply hasn't been open. It's resulted in 2.8 catches for 33.2 yards with one touchdown through 10 games.

  • Colts have no interest in Ray Rice
    A source tells ESPN's Ed Werder that the Colts have no interest in free agent Ray Rice even if Rice is reinstated.

    Advice: A judge is tentatively expected to rule that the NFL must reinstate Rice within the next two weeks. At that point, he'll be free to sign with any team as a free agent. The Colts are certainly desperate for a back with Rice's skill set in the wake of Ahmad Bradshaw's injury, but they're not going to take the PR hit and we doubt any other team will either. Rice's best chance to get back on the field will be in 2015, a full year removed from the release of the heinous videotape that rocked the league. Rotoworld.com
