Player Notes

  • Lamar Miller practicing in full for Week 13
    Lamar Miller (knee) is practicing in full for Week 13.

    Advice: Miller will be ready to rock for Monday evening's game with the Jets, but won't be more than a low-end RB2 against one of the league's best run defenses.

  • Jerick McKinnon still sidelined on Thursday
    Jerick McKinnon (back) remained sidelined on Thursday.

    Advice: McKinnon obviously needs to return on Friday, but he's still expected to suit up for Week 13. He'll be a borderline RB2 against the Panthers.

  • Latavius Murray practicing again on Thursday
    Latavius Murray (concussion) practiced again on Thursday.

    Advice: It's unclear if Murray has gained final clearance, but that should be a formality at this point. Murray will be an upside RB2 against the Rams after dismantling the Chiefs for 112 yards and two touchdowns on only four carries in Week 12.

  • Texans expect Arian Foster to return Sunday
    Coach Bill O'Brien said he expects Arian Foster (groin) to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Advice: Always slow to recover from soft-tissue injuries, Foster hasn't played since Week 9. He's on track to start against a Titans team that's among the worst in the NFL in most run-defense metrics, putting him squarely in the top-5 running back conversation for the week. Alfred Blue still needs to be owned just in case Foster sustains a setback.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • McCluster (concussion) limited Wednesday
    Dexter McCluster (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It puts him on track to play in Week 13. McCluster still hasn't been fully cleared, but has a chance to return without missing time.

  • 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.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Andre Ellington (hip, toe) held out Wednesday
    Andre Ellington (hip, toe) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Ellington is listed with a toe injury in addition to his hip issue. The Cardinals also held out Larry Fitzgerald (knee) and John Brown on Wednesday.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Bills add KR/WR Marcus Thigpen off waivers
    Bills claimed KR/WR Marcus Thigpen off waivers from the Bucs.

    Advice: The Bills have been using Fred Jackson on punt returns, so Thigpen should provide an upgrade. It's not a good sign for Marquise Goodwin, who was a healthy scratch last week. Thigpen averaged 16.3 yards on punt returns in four games with the Bucs.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Fred Jackson removed from injury report
    Fred Jackson is not listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Advice: Jackson didn't look over his groin issue on Monday night, but this confirms he didn't have any setbacks. The Bills should continue to increase his snaps now that he's getting close to full health. Jackson will remain the lead back in a committee with Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown, making him an RB2/FLEX for Week 13 against the Browns.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 2:04 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Shane Vereen (ankle) limited Wednesday
    Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Despite losing goal-line carries to LeGarrette Blount last week, Vereen still led the backfield with 62 snaps. He'll be an RB2/FLEX option for Sunday's matchup with Green Bay.
    Yesterday, 1:53 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Khiry Robinson (arm) listed as 'DNP'
    Khiry Robinson (arm) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Robinson has missed the last five games. He could cut into Mark Ingram's workload when healthy, but won't be a recommended fantasy option.
    Yesterday, 1:40 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 1:34 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Charles Sims limited on Wednesday
    Charles Sims (ankle) was limited on Wednesday.

    Advice: Sims should play Week 13 against the Bengals, but the Tampa Bay backfield is a situation to avoid with Sims, Doug Martin, and Bobby Rainey all splitting snaps.
    Yesterday, 1:23 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Ryan Mathews (shoulder) practices Wednesday
    Ryan Mathews (shoulder) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Mathews missed time with his shoulder injury last week, but was able to return. His Week 13 status isn't a concern. The Union-Tribune San Diego expects Mathews to continue getting bigger workloads over the final five games.
    Yesterday, 12:31 pm
    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Matt Asiata (concussion) cleared to practice
    Matt Asiata (concussion) was cleared to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Asiata declared himself "ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He should resume third-down and short-yardage work behind Jerick McKinnon, putting him on the RB4 radar.

    Week 13 Projected Rank
  • Boom Herron will start at RB, 'barring change'
    ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells reports Boom Herron will continue to start over Trent Richardson.

    Advice: Coach Chuck Pagano would only say that Herron "may" start again this week against the Redskins because he practiced so well leading up to Week 12, but most Colts beat writers get the impression it'll be Herron getting the nod over Richardson again. This comes two days after Richardson said he didn't start last week because he was recovering from the flu. We didn't buy it. It really doesn't matter, as the two will split reps, but it shows the Colts are higher on Herron than sloth-like T-Rich in the backfield.
