Player Notes

  • Ryan Mathews ruled out for Thursday at Lions
    Ryan Mathews (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Lions.

    Advice: Darren Sproles will back up DeMarco Murray on Thanksgiving. Mathews remains in the league's protocol. Consider him questionable for Week 13. 22 minutes ago

  • Ertz out for Thursday at DET, Celek to start
    Zach Ertz (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's Week 12 game against the Lions.

    Advice: Brent Celek will get the start and play every snap. He has some streaming appeal after back-to-back solid games as a pass catcher, even if some of the damage was done in garbage time. Ertz should be ready for Week 13. 23 minutes ago
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Sam Bradford questionable for Thursday at DET
    Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's Week 12 game against the Lions.

    Advice: It looks like coach Chip Kelly will try to keep the Lions guessing as to who will start at quarterback. Bradford was recently cleared of his concussion and participated fully in Wednesday's practice, but it's anyone's guess if he'll start. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport thinks it's a "long shot" Bradford plays. 27 minutes ago
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ted Ginn probable for Week 12
    Ted Ginn (knee) is probable for Thursday's Week 12 game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: He'll be ready to roll as an inefficient, low-ceiling WR4 on Thanksgiving. 52 minutes ago
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Corey Brown questionable for Thursday
    Corey Brown (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's Week 12 game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Brown said he feels ready to return after missing Week 11 against the Redskins. If he plays, Brown won't be a fantasy option as a very lightly-used deep threat. Brown's return could cut into Devin Funchess' snaps. 53 minutes ago
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Broncos sign QB Christian Ponder
    Broncos signed QB Christian Ponder.

    Advice: With Peyton Manning (foot) out "at least" two weeks, Ponder will slide in behind starter Brock Osweiler. Once Manning is healthy, Ponder will again hit the road. 59 minutes ago
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Bills cut RB Dan Herron
    Bills waived RB Dan Herron.

    Advice: Herron averaged 3.36 YPC on 11 carries for the Bills across four games earlier this season when both LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams were hurt. Herron had been inactive the past couple weeks. He's now 26. Today, 9:24 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Bills waive WR Denarius Moore
    Bills waived WR Denarius Moore.

    Advice: Moore didn't do anything on offense for Buffalo, mainly playing special teams and handling return duties. The Bills have replaced him with KR Marcus Thigpen. Today, 9:22 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Bills bring back PR Marcus Thigpen
    Bills signed KR Marcus Thigpen.

    Advice: Thigpen will likely take over return duties after PR Leodis McKelvin fumbled a punt away to the Patriots on Monday night and muffed another. The Bills also signed OL Ryan Groy, releasing WR Denarius Moore and RB Dan Herron. Today, 9:20 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Leonard Hankerson not practicing Wednesday
    Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Hankerson returned from his hamstring issue last week and had an awful, drop-filled game against the Colts despite scoring a touchdown. If he sits this week, Jacob Tamme will be in play as the No. 2 pass-game option. Today, 9:16 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Devonta Freeman still in Phase 1 of protocol
    Devonta Freeman (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He remains in the first phase of the league's concussion protocol. It's not a good sign for Freeman's prospects of suiting up Week 12 against the Vikings, but we'll have to keep an eye on his progress the rest of the week and into the weekend. If he can't go, Tevin Coleman will get the start in the backfield. Today, 9:13 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Jordan Reed (knee) practicing Wednesday
    Jordan Reed (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Reed allegedly suffered a knee sprain Sunday against the Panthers, and was announced as out for the remainder of the game before returning in the fourth quarter. It suggests the issue was very minor. Reed has a mouth-watering matchup against the Giants' dreadful defense against tight ends in Week 12. Today, 9:08 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Frank Gore (knee, quad) misses practice Wed
    Frank Gore (knee, quad) isn't practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Gore missed time on Sunday after an early knee/quad issue and was spotted with a noticeable limp late in the game on the sideline. The Colts are likely just giving the 32-year-old the practice off and will probably limit his reps the remainder of the week. Gore should be fine for Week 12 against the Bucs. Today, 8:41 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ravens could use Mostert more at running back
    Coach John Harbaugh said RB Raheem Mostert could see more reps on offense moving forward.

    Advice: Mostert tore up the preseason with the Eagles, totaling 361 yards on 53 touches. He didn't make the final roster and spent time with the Dolphins earlier this season before being claimed off waivers by Baltimore last month. Mostert (5'10/195) is small, but has off-the-chart measurables and athleticism. Today, 8:13 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Larry Donnell (neck) not practicing Wednesday
    Larry Donnell (neck) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Donnell said he's been cleared to play and feels 100 percent. The Giants obviously feel differently. Either way, if he plays, Donnell isn't fantasy-relevant. Today, 7:49 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ty Montgomery out for Thanksgiving game
    Ty Montgomery (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Bears.

    Advice: Randall Cobb, James Jones, and Davante Adams will continue to handle three-wide duties, with Jeff Janis mixing in as the No. 4 receiver. Whenever Montgomery returns, he could push Adams and Janis for snaps. Today, 7:45 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Joseph Randle arrested for assault in Kansas
    Suspended free agent RB Joseph Randle was arrested at a Kansas casino Tuesday night.

    Advice: He's facing several charges, including felony criminal threats, misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, and disorderly conduct. Randle was reportedly told to leave the casino because he was too drunk. On the way out, he spit on the floor and "went berserk" on the cops. Randle has a history of legal troubles and is still in custody on $25,000 bail. Today, 7:10 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Browns ready to move on from Johnny Manziel?
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot believes the Browns will "probably part ways" and "are ready to move on" from Johnny Manziel this offseason.

    Advice: Cleveland is unlikely to cut Manziel before the end of the season in hopes of getting a late-round pick for him via trade, but it's pretty clear the organization, particularly coach Mike Pettine, has run out of rope with the soon-to-be 23-year-old, who's refused to ditch his partying ways. Owner Jimmy Haslam pushed to draft Manziel, so maybe he'll step in and overrule a Manziel departure. Today, 6:32 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Marshawn Lynch having sports-hernia surgery
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch is undergoing sports-hernia surgery Wednesday morning.

    Advice: Lynch is expected to miss "about a month," as FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday. That's on the optimistic side. According to Dr. David Chao, former Chargers team physician, six weeks is "average" return. Arian Foster, who's of similar age to Lynch, missed eight weeks after sports-hernia surgery this summer. Lynch can probably be cut from re-draft teams now. Thomas Rawls sits atop the depth chart for the foreseeable future. Lynch might be back for the playoffs. Today, 6:19 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Rams WR Stedman Bailey shot, in Fla. hospital
    Rams WR Stedman Bailey was shot in the head and hip in South Florida on Tuesday evening and is in the hospital.

    Advice: Bailey was reportedly the passenger in a car with his cousin, the driver, and two younger relatives. Bailey was shot two times in the head, and is in critical, but stable, condition. The driver is in critical condition. Early reports are the injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening and Bailey will undergo surgery in the morning. Bailey is away from the team on a four-game suspension, which is why he's in Florida at the moment. Our thoughts are with Bailey and his family. Yesterday, 9:31 pm
