Player Notes

  • Roddy White out of practice once again
    Roddy White (ankle) did not practice again Thursday.

    Advice: The severity of White's ankle issue is unknown as he played on 94.3 percent of the snaps in Week 12. Perhaps he's just resting some normal soreness. We'll know more by Friday, but in the meantime owners can add Harry Douglas as a bit of insurance. Douglas (foot) returned to practice Thursday.

  • Reggie Bush won't play against Bears Thursday
    Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's Week 13 game against the Bears.

    Advice: The ankle that's bothered Bush since Week 5 is still not right. The Lions are hopeful he can play in Week 14, but it's far from a certainty. As for Thursday, Joique Bell gets a tick up as he projects for roughly 20 touches against a middling Bears run defense. Theo Riddick, averaging 7.2 touches per game in the four Bush has missed this year, is also on the radar as a PPR flier. He's been quiet the last two weeks, but it's notable that those came in two very difficult spots (at ARZ, at NE).

  • Report: Highly unlikely RG3 back with Skins
    Sources tell the Washington Post it's "highly unlikely" Robert Griffin III will return to the Redskins next season.

    Advice: On draft day in 2012, the Redskins gave the Rams their first-round picks in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in addition to a 2012 second-rounder for the right to take Griffin No. 2 overall. He was spectacular while leading the Redskins to the playoffs as a rookie, but suffered a career-altering ACL tear in the Wild Card game against the Seahawks. Since then, RG3 has tanked in terms of on-field performance, getting benched by Mike Shanahan late last year and again by Jay Gruden this year. Gruden appears to have convinced meddling owner Dan Snyder that the Redskins need to find a quarterback that fits his pocket-passer scheme, meaning Griffin can likely be had for pennies on the dollar this offseason.

  • Cecil Shorts has the flu
    Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts has the flu.

    Advice: On the heels of a wildly disappointing 1-6-0 Week 12 outing against the Colts, Shorts did not practice Wednesday. We'd expect him to be fine for Week 13, but he's a tough sell as a fantasy start against the Giants. Blake Bortles is regressing and Shorts could see plenty of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

  • Mornhinweg, Rex wanted Vick
    According to the New York Daily News, both Rex Ryan and OC Marty Mornhinweg were among those that wanted Michael Vick to keep starting over Geno Smith.

    Advice: It speaks volumes about the coaching staff's lack of faith in Geno. Although Vick looked completely lost on the field in Detroit Monday night, the last thing they want to do is turn back to their 2013 second-round pick. "Does he give you a good chance to win? Or a chance to win? I believe he does give us a chance to win," said Ryan, who doesn't want a public battle with the front office as he prepares to start looking for another job this offseason. The Dolphins D/ST is a preferred play in Week 13.

  • Jace Amaro unlikely to play
    Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion) is not expected to play in Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Amaro sustained a concussion in last week's loss to the Bills. The Jets will have to ride with Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld. Chris Pantale could be signed off the practice squad.

  • Justin Forsett wants back with Ravens
    Impending free agent Justin Forsett said his preference is to re-sign with the Ravens.

    Advice: It's going to a tricky contract negotiation as Forsett is a 29-year-old running back. He'll want to get paid after playing at a Pro Bowl level for just $730,000 this year, but that's not the way it works at the position. Although Forsett currently ranks third in rushing yards (903), first in YPC among running backs, first in carries of 20+ yards and seventh in PFF's Elusive Rating, he'll have to accept a short-term deal.

  • Mike Bush not expcted to get carries Sunday
    Newly signed Cardinals RB Michael Bush is not expected to get carries in Sunday's Week 13 game at Atlanta.

    Advice: Coach Bruce Arians tells it how it is on Bush, who has been out of the league since last season ended. "It's going to be hard to have a guy who didn't play in OTAs and didn't have a training camp, and for me to give him the ball on Sunday, that would be pretty hard," Arians said. Once Bush is up to speed, Arians confirmed that he'll be implemented into short-yardage and goal-line packages. That could come as soon as Week 14.

  • Mike Tolbert (knee) practicing in full
    Mike Tolbert (knee) is practicing in full for Week 13.

    Advice: Tolbert was activated from short-term I.R. last week. He's been cleared to return coming out of the Panthers' bye. Tolbert isn't on the fantasy radar, but could steal some goal-line looks.

  • Kenny Britt (back) misses practice Wednesday
    Kenny Britt (back) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Britt shouldn't be in danger of missing Sunday's game. He'll be a low-end WR3 for a matchup with Oakland in Week 13.

  • Donnie Avery (groin) on track to return
    Donnie Avery (groin) is practicing in full for Week 13.

    Advice: Avery should return this week after missing the last seven games. He'll start opposite Dwayne Bowe, with Jason Avant likely getting time in three-wide sets.

  • Frank Gore (knee) probable for Thursday night
    Frank Gore (knee) is probable for Thursday night's game against Seattle.

    Advice: He's good to go after practicing in full on Wednesday. Gore was rested earlier in the week with a knee issue. He'll be a low-end RB2/FLEX against Seattle.

  • Marshawn Lynch probable for Week 13
    Marshawn Lynch (back) is probable for Week 13 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Lynch, even at less than 100 percent, is a locked-in RB1 Thanksgiving Night.

  • Texans going back to Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB
    Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Week 13 against the Titans.

    Advice: As expected. The Texans will go with the veteran until they're officially eliminated from playoff contention. Either Tom Savage or Thad Lewis will be the No. 2. Fitzpatrick had an eye for DeAndre Hopkins in his nine starts earlier this season, but not much changes from Ryan Mallett to Fitzpatrick. Andre Johnson is a borderline WR2/3. Fitzpatrick is barely an option in two-quarterback leagues.

  • Cooper Helfet (ankle) ruled out for Week 13
    Cooper Helfet (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the 49ers.

  • Robert Woods limited with ankle injury
    Robert Woods (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: The Bills expect him to be fine for Sunday. Despite coming off a 9/118/1 line, Woods won't be more than a low-end WR4 this week.

  • Zach Ertz probable for Week 13
    Zach Ertz (oblique) is probable for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day Week 13 game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Ertz briefly left Week 12 but later returned to post a 4-30 line against the Titans. He's merely a TE2 with some TE1 upside against Dallas' tight end-friendly defense.

  • Harry Douglas (foot) not practicing Wednesday
    Harry Douglas (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Douglas has battled the foot for the majority of the season, but has been playing the past couple weeks. However, he's a fantasy non-factor behind Julio and Roddy.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Brandon Bostick (hip) returns to practice
    Brandon Bostick (hip) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Bostick has a chance to return after missing the last two games. He's played just 27 snaps this year behind Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers. Bostick should be considered questionable for Week 13.

  • Patriots ink ST ace Slater to 2-yr extension
    Patriots signed WR Matthew Slater to a two-year, $4 million contract extension through 2016.

    Advice: Slater, 29, was set to become a free agent following the season. The premier kick coverer in the league, Slater doesn't play offense whatsoever. Slater has gone to three consecutive Pro Bowls, and will likely head to another in February. Slater leads the league with 11 special teams tackles.
