  • Brandin Cooks already ruled out for Week 11
    Brandin Cooks (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Bears.

    Advice: The Rams and Bears face off on NBC's Sunday Night Football next week. Being ruled out this early is a bad sign for Cooks' Week 12 availability as well, as he tries to return from another concussion. Cooks has been cleared for limited no-contact practices but is a ways away from gameday clearance. Josh Reynolds will continue to be an every-down wideout in Cooks' absence.

  • Rapsheet: Freeman 'could' miss about 2 weeks
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Devonta Freeman (foot) "could" miss "about" two weeks with what is believed to be a foot sprain.

    Advice: Very vague. But Rapsheet adds the issue affects Freeman's toe more than the actual foot. In his absence, and with Ito Smith (neck) already on I.R., the Falcons turned to Brian Hill for 20 carries in the upset win over the Saints, though he produced just 61 yards on those attempts. He's obviously worth adding off waiver wires. Rookie Qadree Ollison and special teamer Kenjon Barner are also on the roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:10 pm

  • Falcons TE Hooper diagnosed with sprained MCL
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Austin Hooper has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

    Advice: Hooper will get a second opinion to determine how long he's out, but it's certain to be a week-to-week situation with Hooper missing multiple games. It should open up more passes to be funneled through Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, while Luke Stocker and "Jaeden Graham" are currently next up at tight end. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:06 pm

  • Kingsbury: DJ 'obviously' limited by injuries
    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said David Johnson has "obviously" been hampered by the back and ankle injuries he's been dealing with this season.

    Advice: Kingsbury added that Johnson is "still working through those and getting a feel for it." More troubling was Kingsbury's admittance that Kenyan Drake worked ahead of Johnson down the stretch because, "We just felt like with Drake, needed to get something going and kept him rolling." The Cardinals' first-year coach said he'll figure out the best role for both Johnson and Drake "over the next few weeks" and then "run with it." Johnson hasn't looked to be anything close to 100% in recent weeks, struggling to get the edge or provide anything resembling his usual burst. It wouldn't be surprising to see Drake work as the offense's lead back sooner rather than later. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:52 pm

It'd be surprising if the team didn't add a RB to the equation prior to their Week 11 matchup against the Cowboys. If they don't, McKissic could have a featured role with a double-digit touch floor.

    Advice: Funchess is eligible to return Sunday against the Jaguars, but Reich noted, "He’s got a few boxes to check though before he can play." Limited snaps seem likely for Funchess if he manages to suit up, but there's plenty of opportunity available in the Colts' injury-riddled WR room. Both T.Y.

    Coach Frank Reich said T.Y. Hilton (calf) is still being taken care of day by day.

    Advice: We'll need to see Hilton return to practice before expecting him to return. This Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars seems like a long shot. The Colts featured Zach Pascal (99% snaps) and Marcus Johnson (80%) in 2-WR sets last week, as Chester Rogers (50%) worked behind both Eric Ebron (61%) and Jack Doyle (60%). Hilton would obviously re-emerge as the offense's featured pass-game option if healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:19 pm

    Advice: Reich added that the Colts are optimistic that the rest over the weekend helped Brissett's knee. Brian Hoyer certainly wasn't the answer in Week 10, as the 34-year-old backup threw three interceptions in the Colts' loss to the Dolphins. Brissett is needed more than ever ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. It's feasible that Chad Kelly could earn a chance sooner rather than later if Brissett is again sidelined and Hoyer continues to struggle mightily. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:14 pm

    Advice: Patricia isn't known for giving away too many injury details. Still, Stafford does appear to be dealing with a potential multi-week injury after missing his first game since 2010. Jeff Driskel will continue to start under center if Stafford remains sidelined. The former 2016 sixth-round pick wasn't perfect against the Bears, but he did show the ability to create off script along with a willingness to test the defense downfield.

  • Quinn 'confident' with Brian Hill as lead RB
    Coach Dan Quinn said he'd be "confident" with Brian Hill in a lead role if Devonta Freeman (foot) is sidelined.

    Advice: Hill offers enough size (6-foot-1 and 220-pounds) to handle a three-down load. He's also proven capable of providing efficient production as both a rusher (28-101-1) and receiver (3-24-1) this season. Hill largely out-played Ito Smith (concussion, IR) during the preseason and has seemingly earned the coaching staff's trust to this point. He deserves to be one of the week's most-popular waiver wire additions, particularly ahead of a matchup against the Panthers' run-funnel defense. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:38 pm

    Austin Hooper will undergo an MRI on his injured knee.

    Advice: Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Hooper is expected to miss "some time" after picking up his injury Sunday against New Orleans. The length of his absence will likely be determined by his MRI. A stabilizing force at one of the weakest fantasy positions, Hooper has enjoyed a breakout season for Atlanta, leading all tight ends in catches with 56. Without him, the Falcons will turn to veteran Luke Stocker at tight end, though he's more known for his blocking prowess than his mitts (6-34-0 receiving line on nine targets this year).

    Devonta Freeman (foot) will undergo an MRI Monday.

    Advice: Freeman exited Sunday's game in New Orleans with a foot injury, which was later diagnosed as a sprain. Monday MRI's should bring more clarity to the situation. Already running on fumes without Ito Smith (placed on I.R. with a neck injury over the weekend), Freeman's absence would leave the Falcons extremely short-handed at running back. With Freeman's status up in the air, Brian Hill (71 yards and a touchdown on 21 touches in Week 10) should be among the week's most coveted waiver adds. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:19 am

  • Immobile DJ goes 5/2 as rusher, loses fumble
    David Johnson rushed five times for two yards in the Cardinals' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

    Advice: Johnson "added" an eight-yard reception and lost a fumble. For the giveaway, Johnson was helpless as Lavonte David unleashed some serious dad/old man strength. (Full disclosure, David is only 29 years old.) 27-year-old Johnson, who was struggling on the ground even before injuring his ankle, looked like he was running with a piano on his back. He did not seem like someone who was healthy enough to be a part of the Cardinals' 46-man Sunday roster right now. Kenyan Drake was slightly more effective on the ground but an uninspiring 6/6 through the air. With both his health and the Cardinals' backfield uncertain, Johnson will be a risky RB2 for Week 11 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:13 pm

  • Hooper (knee) posts 4-17-1 line, exits early
    Austin Hooper caught 4-of-5 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Saints.

    Advice: Hooper was deemed questionable to return late in the fourth quarter due to a knee injury. Hooper’s touchdown reception came down the seam from eight yards out in tight coverage. Still, his ungodly target total came back to earth with the Falcons holding a lead for most of the game. The Falcons enter games planning on getting their run game, Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley involved before Hooper, but their TE often racks up underneath targets once things get out of hand. We wouldn’t bet on the Falcons suddenly becoming world beaters for the rest of the season, so Hooper can still be fired up as a confident TE1 more weeks than not. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:56 pm

  • Hill gets 21 touches; Freeman (ankle) hurt
    Brian Hill rushed 20 times for 61 yards in the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Saints, adding one reception for 10 additional yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: Hill is looking at a potential three-down role in the future if Devonta Freeman (ankle, foot) has to miss time. He played well as both a rusher and receiver in relief of Freeman on Sunday, regularly bursting through the line against the Saints’ struggling defense. Kenjon Barner is more of a change-of-pace option and doesn't figure to threaten Hill's early-down work. He'll be an upside RB2 in Week 11 against the Panthers' run-funnel defense if Freeman is inactive. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:47 pm

  • Freeman (ankle) totals 48 yards before injury
    Devonta Freeman rushed 10 times for 38 yards in the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Saints, adding three receptions for 10 additional yards.

    Advice: Freeman was running well prior to exiting the game due to a foot injury early in the third quarter. He consistently was able to burst through the first level of the defense, but ultimately didn’t have a touch go for longer than 12 yards. The good news (assuming health) is that Freeman has worked clearly as the No. 1 bell-cow back ahead of Brian Hill and Kenjon Barner when on the field without Ito Smith (neck, IR) involved.

  • Matthew Stafford (back) to miss Week 10
    Matthew Stafford (hip, back) is out for Week 10 against the Bears.

    Advice: Stafford went for an MRI Friday, which revealed fractured bones in his back. The veteran wanted to play through it, but couldn't get the green light from Detroit's medical staff. Sunday will spell the end of Stafford's streak of 136 consecutive regular-season starts, the sixth-longest run by a quarterback in league history. With Stafford unavailable, the Lions will turn to ex-Bengal Jeff Driskel Sunday in the Windy City. Driskel made a handful of starts for the Bengals a year ago but obviously won't be a recommended streaming option in a tough road matchup.

    Advice: Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Colts "hope" to have Brissett back under center next week against the Jaguars, though the team is prepared for Brian Hoyer to make "multiple starts" if need be. Brissett practiced throughout the week while battling a sprained MCL, but was ultimately ruled out ahead of Sunday's home game against the Dolphins. Hoyer is a more than capable backup, though his presence still represents a downgrade for all of Indy's pass-catchers.

  • Stafford's status to be decided in warmups
    According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Matthew Stafford (questionable, back) is "being told by some" not to play Week 10 against the Bears.

    Advice: Nonetheless, Stafford will attempt to keep his run of 136 consecutive regular-season starts, the second-longest streak among active signal-callers (only Philip Rivers has him beat in that department), alive by testing out his back in pre-game warmups. Per Schefter, a decision on Stafford's status won't be made until then. Stafford will play through almost any amount of pain, but in the off chance he sits, quarterback duties will fall in the hands of Jeff Driskel, a former sixth-round pick who drew five starts for Cincinnati in 2018.

    Seahawks WR Josh Gordon will be a game-time decision for Week 10 against the 49ers.

    Advice: Gordon was left off the injury report but that doesn't guarantee him a spot in the starting lineup. When asked about Gordon's availability, coach Pete Carroll said, "There’s a good chance" he'll play, but he's taking a "wait-and-see" approach since Gordon is new to the offense. With Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf both playing well, Gordon isn't expected to see many targets in the next couple of weeks.

The Bears haven't been quite as good as last season, but they've still been stingy on a per-play basis. Overall, the 2018 Bears defense allowed 4.8 yards per play, while the 2019 edition has allowed 4.9.

Still, it might be tough to expect consistent fantasy production from Drake as long as Johnson is active; the Cardinals' featured back played at least 60% of the offense's snaps in Weeks 1-6 before leaving early in Week 7 due to injury.

    Advice: Brissett will be without two of his top pass catchers in T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) if active. Still, the mouth-watering matchup against the Dolphins' 32nd-ranked defense in pass DVOA would be tough for fantasy owners to pass up if Brissett manages to suit up.

    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said "we'll see" in regards to George Kittle's status for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: "I mean there's issues," said Shanahan, who wouldn't divulge the results of Kittle's MRI. "He’s got things in his knee and ankle so we’ll see." Kittle suffered his injuries on the first play from scrimmage in Week 9. He played through the pain and even scored a touchdown in the win over Arizona, but spent most of the fourth quarter as a spectator. Ross Dwelley would be next up at tight end for San Francisco if Kittle isn't able to suit up Monday night. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:53 am

  • Brandin Cooks 'can't wait'to return this year
    In an Instagram post, Brandin Cooks (concussion) said he "can't wait to get back on the field this season."

    Advice: While the receiver won't suit up against the Steelers on Sunday, it sounds like Cooks received encouraging news from his visit with a concussion specialist earlier this week. "Whether some like it or not I’m far from that end destination when it comes to this game," wrote Cooks, who was concussed for the second time this season in a Week 8 win over Cincinnati. "I’m thankful that this soon will be something in the past." It would be understandable for Cooks to question his NFL future in the wake of his fifth reported concussion, though obviously the sixth-year receiver still feels he has plenty of good football ahead of him.

  • Josh Gordon limited with ankle injury
    New Seahawks WR Josh Gordon was limited in Thursday's practice with an ankle issue.

    Advice: It was Gordon's knee that ended his Patriots career a few weeks ago. The "limited" session suggests he's still on track to make his Seattle debut Monday evening against the 49ers, and coach Pete Carroll suggested as much. No higher than third on the depth chart, Gordon is a low-upside WR5 for Week 10. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:00 pm

  • David Johnson practicing in full for Week 10
    David Johnson (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

    Advice: Both Johnson and coach Kilff Kingsbury have confirmed he will return. Chase Edmonds (hamstring) remains sidelined, but trade addition Kenyan Drake is coming off a 162-yard game in his Cardinals debut. Both will be needed as pass catchers against the Bucs' pass-funnel defense, though Johnson will almost certainly take the lead on the ground. With the best touchdown odds, Johnson is a solid RB2 while Drake is an upside FLEX. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:53 pm

  • T.Y. Hilton (calf) misses another practice
    T.Y. Hilton (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday.

    Advice: Hilton has yet to be officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but it's coming. Also missing Parris Campbell (broken hand), Jacoby Brissett or Brian Hoyer is going to be severely shorthanded at receiver. The fact that the Colts are refusing to Hilton out bodes well for his Week 11 availability. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:55 pm

  • George Kittle (ankle, knee) absent Thursday
    George Kittle (ankle, knee) didn't practice Thursday.

    Advice: Kittle is nursing knee and ankle injuries. The Niners have been noncommittal on his status, suggesting he's a legitimate question mark for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. If he sits, the Niners would likely pivot to Ross Dwelley at tight end, though it's doubtful he'd carry any fantasy significance. Kittle's absence would also theoretically free up targets for lead receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Deebo Samuel. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:37 pm

  • Jacoby Brissett (knee) practicing again
    Jacoby Brissett (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

    Advice: This indicates he avoided setbacks during Wednesday's session. Coming off a sprained MCL suffered in last week's loss to Pittsburgh, Brissett seems intent to gut it out Sunday, even with the lowly Dolphins on tap. In the off chance he sits, veteran Brian Hoyer would slot in as Indy's QB1. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:55 am

  • Matthew Stafford gets in another practice
    Matthew Stafford (back, hip) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Beat reporter Kyle Meinke of MLive.com hears Stafford's back and hip injuries are both "minor." Neither should keep him from suiting up Sunday in the Windy City. Coming off a 400-yard game in Week 9, Stafford has cemented himself as a weekly QB1, regardless of opponent. Only five teams have passed more frequently than Detroit (65.97 percent of plays) since Week 7, which coincides with Kerryon Johnson's absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:32 am

  • Brandin Cooks (concussion) out for Week 10
    Rams coach Sean McVay said Brandin Cooks (concussion) won't play in Week 10 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Cooks will see a specialist in Pittsburgh this week but won't stick around for kick-off. Cooks shouldn't be considered an option for the rest of the season as he continues to seek out numerous opinions to further look into his concerning history of concussions. Josh Reynolds will slide into his spot, as he did on 89 percent of Los Angeles' snaps in London. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:12 pm

    Matthew Stafford (hip, back) was limited for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Stafford's dealt with a back injury over the last month of the season but it hasn't stopped him from averaging 370 passing yards and 3.3 touchdowns in his last three games. He'll play and slide in as a Top 10 QB1 against Chicago in Week 10. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:06 pm

  • DJ: 'I'm definitely playing, I'm 100 percent'
    David Johnson said he's "definitely playing" in Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

    Advice: Kenyan Drake handled 84 percent of Arizona's offensive snaps without Johnson in Week 8 but that workload is fully expected to get scaled back with the latter back healthy after the bye. Johnson was arguably the Cardinals' best receiver on 6.8 targets per game before his three-snap "active" fiasco against the Giants, projecting him to return as an RB2 ahead of Drake as long as Chase Edmonds (hamstring) remains sidelined. Drake is still a premium FLEX option after stuffing the box score with 15/110/1 rushing and 4/52 receiving in his interim bell-cow work against the Niners. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:16 pm

  • Jacoby Brissett (MCL) to be limited Wednesday
    Jacoby Brissett (knee) will practice on a limited basis Wednesday.

    Advice: Brissett has a sprained MCL. The Colts are pushing for a playoff spot and likely want Brissett to miss as little time as possible. They can probably beat the Dolphins with Brian Hoyer under center, but Brissett is expected to try and play. We should know more later in the week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:42 am

  • Brissett (knee) feels 'significantly better'
    Jacoby Brissett (knee) is feeling "significantly better than he did" but is unsure if he'll practice this week.

    Advice: Brissett is taking things day by day. We'll learn more about his Week 10 status based on Wednesday's injury report, although feeling better is step one in the process. The Colts don't have to rush Brissett back with the Dolphins up next, but it sounds like he at least has "a chance" to play, which lines up with ESPN's Chris Mortensen's report from yesterday. If Brissett is unable to suit up, Brian Hoyer will draw the start. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:03 pm

  • 49ers open Garrett Celek's practice window
    49ers TE Garrett Celek (PUP, back) has resumed practicing.

    Advice: This opens Celek's three-week activation window. If he's not activated during that timeframe, he will revert to season-ending IR. When healthy, Celek blocks behind George Kittle. FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee) is nearing a return, perhaps denting Celek's activation odds. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:02 pm

    George Kittle (knee) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: It's a "bonus" practice with the 49ers coming off their mini bye. They aren't required to issue an injury report. Playing on Monday Night Football, their first report won't come until Thursday. Kittle played through his knee issue in Week 9, and we fully expect him to do so again vs. the 'Hawks.

  • Brandin Cooks without timetable for return
    Coach Sean McVay said the Rams "don't know" when Brandin Cooks (concussion) will be able to play again.

    Advice: Cooks has a concerning history of concussions, especially in recent seasons. He met with a specialist during the bye week and received positive reports, but Cooks will continue to meet with others and seek various opinions. It would be a surprise if Cooks plays Week 10 against the Steelers. Josh Reynolds will slide into his spot. Rotoworld.com Nov 4, 4:43 pm

  • Brissett (strained MCL) has 'chance' to play
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Jacoby Brissett (strained MCL) has a chance to play this week against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Mort added that nothing is definite. Brissett is shaping up as a game-time decision, but the matchup against the Dolphins could perhaps lead the Colts to be more cautious than they might otherwise be in more of a true must-win game. Brian Hoyer will be under center if Brissett is ultimately sidelined. The likes of Marlon Mack and Zach Pascal are set up well either way in this potential smash spot. Rotoworld.com Nov 4, 12:54 pm

  • Gordon aiming to make Seahawks debut on MNF
    Josh Gordon passed his Seahawks physical.

    Advice: The physical was conducted Saturday, one day after Seattle claimed him off waivers from New England. It confirms that Gordon is indeed healthy while putting him on track to make his Seahawks debut next Monday night at San Francisco. Gordon will join a loaded Seahawks pass-catching corps already featuring slot receiver Tyler Lockett and electric rookie DK Metcalf. That's a pretty enticing arsenal for MVP candidate Russell Wilson, the current NFL leader in touchdown passes with 22. Rotoworld.com Nov 4, 6:50 am

  • Ty Johnson has 36 yards on 12 touches
    Ty Johnson rushed nine times for 29 yards and caught all three of his targets for seven yards in the Lions' Week 9 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: Johnson was a major bust last week with Tra Carson stealing looks from him, and he busted again this week with the Lions opting to pass the ball against the beatable Raiders secondary. Johnson still worked in a three-back committee despite Carson being on injured reserve, losing pass-game work to J.D. McKissic and some run-game work to Paul Perkins. With the Bears on deck, Johnson is a low-floor flex option in a committee that's best to avoid. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 5:20 pm

  • Stafford has 406 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT in loss
    Matthew Stafford completed 26-of-41 passes for 406 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Lions' Week 9 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: Stafford did what he's done all season -- throw the ball deep to Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. That worked really well, but the Lions came up just short after getting shut down at the goal-line on the would-be tying drive. Stafford now has 340 yards and three touchdowns in three-straight games with Detroit passing more often with Kerryon Johnson on injured reserve. Stafford is also on pace for 4,998 yards and 38 touchdowns in what is quietly turning into a career season for the veteran. Stafford will be on the QB1/2 borderline in Chicago next week, but he should be treated as a low-end QB1 in better matchups. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 4:50 pm

  • T.Y. Hilton (calf) officially inactive Sunday
    Colts declared OL Le'Raven Clark, DT Carl Davis, CB Pierre Desir, WR T.Y. Hilton, DL Tyquan Lewis, RB Jonathan Williams and CB Quincy Wilson inactive for Week 9 against the Steelers.

    Advice: The Colts will roll with Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and likely Parris Campbell in 3-WR sets with Hilton sidelined. Their secondary is also hurting with Desir and Wilson each inactive. The Colts are presently one-point underdogs for this road matchup. Only Redskins-Bills (37) and Browns-Broncos (39) have lower game totals than Colts-Steelers (40). Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 8:37 am

  • Cooks' concussion not thought to be long-term
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Brandin Cooks had a "positive" visit with a concussion specialist during the Rams' bye week.

    Advice: Rapoport added that Cooks' latest head injury, the fifth documented concussion of his NFL career, is not expected to require a "long-term recovery." With that in mind, the Rams plan to be cautious with Cooks, who is battling his second concussion of 2019. If Cooks misses time, Josh Reynolds would slide into three-wide sets alongside Robert Woods and slot receiver Cooper Kupp. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 7:07 am

  • Seahawks take a chance on ex-Pat Josh Gordon
    Seahawks claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers from the Patriots.

    Advice: Coach Pete Carroll said, "He’s a unique talent. Next week we’ll take a look and see what he looks like." Gordon is apparently healthy after being released from the injured reserve list by the Patriots, although he won't suit up Sunday against the Buccaneers. Tyler Lockett is safe in the slot, while electric rookie D.K. Metcalf figures to continue to see a majority of reps in 2-WR sets. Gordon's presence will most likely relegate David Moore and Jaron Brown to the bench. Flash is far from washed; he demonstrated some elite contested-catch ability and made plenty of solid plays after the catch in six games with the Patriots this season. Still, the Seahawks' run-first offense will struggle to enable more than one or two consistent fantasy WRs more weeks than not. Rotoworld.com Nov 1, 1:54 pm

    Advice: Johnson should walk right back into his starting role, although Kenyan Drake deserves to keep getting touches after posting 15-110-1 rushing and 4-52-0 receiving lines against the 49ers on Thursday night.

  • T.Y. Hilton (calf) ruled out for Week 9
    T.Y. Hilton (calf) has been ruled out for the Colts' Week 9 matchup against the Steelers.

    Advice: Coach Frank Reich said generally speaking it's a 3-4 week injury. Hilton suffered the injury during practice Wednesday. It was tough to get behind any of the Colts receivers after Hilton as solid fantasy options with up to six different competent WRs and TEs playing a decent amount of snaps in any given week, but last week's matchup against the Broncos appeared to *finally* provide some resemblance of a defined pecking order at WR. Overall, Zach Pascal (92% snaps) and Chester Rogers (62%) worked as the offense's clear-cut top-two WRs behind Hilton. Look for electric rookie Parris Campbell to join them in 3-WR sets, while Deon Cain probably won't be a healthy scratch this week. Rotoworld.com Nov 1, 10:38 am

    Advice: Hilton was downgraded to DNP at Thursday's practice after beginning the week with a limited session. We'll see how the Colts ultimately list him, though we wouldn't count on him suiting up against Pittsburgh. There isn't an obvious pivot in a muddled Colts pass-catching corps, though at first glance, Zach Pascal—who played a season-high 92.2 percent of snaps in Week 8—would seem to be the most likely beneficiary if Hilton sits.

All signs point to A.J. Green, who has yet to play this year while recovering from offseason ankle surgery, returning after the Bengals' Week 9 bye. Rotoworld.com Nov 1, 7:25 am
