  • Philip Rivers out Wednesday with a toe injury
    Philip Rivers (toe) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: If you watched Sunday's game against the Packers, you noticed Rivers limping heavily along the sideline. He was able to finish the game and help the Colts overcome a significant second half deficit. We have seen Rivers consistently play through injuries throughout his career, so expect him on the field in Week 12 against the Titans. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago

  • A.J. Brown draws DNP Wednesday due to knee injury
    A.J. Brown missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.

    Advice: This is becoming routine for Brown after returning from injury in Week 5. The last time Brown faced this Colts team he caught just one pass for 21 yards on four targets. That will need to drastically change in order for the Titans to win on Sunday. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

    Advice: This is becoming routine for Kamara, who either opens the week of practice on the sideline or with a limited session. Kamara always ends up playing that weekend. The only note this time is that Latavius Murray did handle 14 touches in Week 11. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:17 pm

  • Ankle injury sidelines Hayden Hurst Wednesday
    Hayden Hurst did not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

    Advice: Hurst did not record a catch in Sunday's loss to the Saints and faces another stiff matchup against the Raiders, who have only allowed one top 10 scoring week at the position to a player not named Travis Kelce. If Hurst cannot play, Jaeden Graham likely fills in as the receiving option with Luke Stocker operating more as a blocker. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 pm

    Todd Gurley did not practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury.

    Advice: We know all about Gurley's history of knee injuries, so hopefully this is just a rest day after playing in 10 games this season. However, Brian Hill did play 26 snaps on Sunday in comparison to Gurley's 23. Gurley has not cleared 63 rushing yards in five games and a very large portion of his fantasy production is reliant on finding the endzone. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:56 pm

  • D.J. Chark sidelined Wednesday with ribs issue
    D.J. Chark did not practice on Wednesday with a ribs injury.

    Advice: This is a new one. Chark caught 4-of-8 targets from Jake Luton last Sunday for 41 yards. The Jaguars spent this week sending players to injured reserve, mostly on the defensive side of the ball, so it would not be shocking to see a few offensive players join them. We already expect the passing offense to struggle with Mike Glennon in control, but if Chark misses any time then Jacksonville will be in dire straits outside of running the ball with James Robinson.

Bernard now has four days to progress through the league's strenuous protocols. If he can't play in Week 12, Samaje Perine is next man up followed by Trayveon Williams.

That may not happen this week for the Bills game, but Ekeler did say a couple weeks back he was getting close to a return.

    Advice: He will be "designated to return" from injured reserve, but that does not mean he is actually activated. It just opens his 21-day practice/activation window. Ekeler hinted at a return ahead of Week 10 but has not been heard from since.

    Advice: With Carolina's bye right around the corner in Week 13, fantasy players should continue preparing as if McCaffrey won't be back on the field until December 13 in Week 14. Mike Davis, who handled 21 of Carolina's 29 backfield touches on Sunday, will continue starting in the interim.

  • Julio (hamstring) could be a game-time decision
    Falcons coach Raheem Morris said Julio Jones (hamstring) could be a game-time decision if need be for Week 12 against the Raiders.

    Advice: He mustered only 22 snaps on Sunday after suffering his injury in the first quarter. Jones returned to make a 22-yard catch on 4th-and-13 in garbage time but was removed from the game shortly thereafter with a noticeable limp. We've seen Morris hold Jones out of practice until Friday and still remove him from the injury report, so Atlanta's Friday practice will ultimately tell fantasy players whether Jones will be available on Sunday. Reminder that Matt Ryan was previously the QB27, QB23, and QB26 in three games that Jones was either absent or limited for earlier this year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:21 pm

    Advice: Some choice. Nagy also said a quarterback change is "still on the table." Foles was carted off in Chicago's putrid showing on offense against the Vikings last Monday night but the team is apparently still holding out hope he'll turn around for another primetime game on Sunday. Trubisky, still considered week-to-week, meanwhile hasn't been active with a shoulder injury the past two games. Tyler Bray replaced Foles in the fourth quarter of Week 11, launching four incompletions into the sidelines, but would be the fallback option if neither Foles or Trubisky can go.

    Hayden Hurst didn't record a catch in Atlanta's Week 11 loss to New Orleans.

    Advice: He had two targets but went down with the ship as Matt Ryan was under pressure on 51% of his dropbacks and lost Julio Jones (hamstring) for a majority of the game in the first quarter. Hurst gets a cush matchup against Las Vegas' secondary in Week 12 but can be avoided altogether if Jones misses any time.

  • Gurley a non-factor in blowout loss to Saints
    Todd Gurley rushed eight times for 26 yards in Atlanta's Week 11 loss to New Orleans.

    Advice: The Saints haven't allowed a 100-yard performance since Samaje Perine accomplished as much in 2017, so Gurley's stats aren't surprising. The real takeaway is that the veteran was out-snapped 26-23 by backup Brian Hill for the first time all year. Both can be avoided if Julio Jones (hamstring) misses time moving forward. Otherwise Gurley would be in line for a bounce-back against Las Vegas' front-seven, which has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, in Week 12.

    Salvon Ahmed played 85 percent of the Dolphins' offensive snaps in Week 11's loss to Denver. 

    Advice: Ahmed dominated snap share Sunday despite missing some time with a shoulder injury. Matt Breida played a meager seven snaps in his return to the lineup. Ahmed's snap share was higher than Myles Gaskin had in any game this season. Ahmed's days as Miami's primary back are probably numbered because Gaskin (knee) could return from injured reserve soon. Gaskin might not enjoy the locked-in primary running back role he had before the injury and Ahmed's subsequent emergence.

But Flores was clear there would be no wholesale changes to the team's QB spot in Week 12. Fitzpatrick after the team's loss to Denver said there would be "no controversy. This is his team. He's going to lead this team and continue to lead the team." The rookie completed 11-of-20 passes for 83 yards and one touchdown while taking six sacks against the Broncos.

  • Calvin Ridley sees 9 targets, finishes with 90 yds
    Calvin Ridley caught 5-of-9 targets for 90 yards in Atlanta's Week 11 loss to New Orleans.

    Advice: Ridley's 90 receiving yards were a team-high mark as Julio Jones (hamstring) exited in the first quarter and wasn't seen again until the final seven minutes of regulation. Ridley opened the game with a 46-yard gain over the top of Janoris Jenkins but was practically unheard from again as the Saints' defense lived behind the line of scrimmage and sacked Matt Ryan eight times. Ridley previously averaged 11.5 targets per game and a 30.6% target share in his two starts without Jones this year and would remain a strong usage-based WR1 no matter what happens to Ryan and Atlanta's offense if Jones were to miss any time.

    Advice: Jeudy has 40 targets over the last four weeks but has just one touchdown and one 100-yard game to show for it with Drew Lock's inefficient arm throwing him the ball. Jeudy's sheer volume keeps him a weekly WR2 ahead of a Week 12 date with the Saints. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:56 pm

    Advice: After nearly two decades of finding every way imaginable to lose a close game late, Rivers caught a break after Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling fumbled in overtime, setting up an easy game-winning field goal for Indy. Rivers was playing on a gimpy lower leg in the second half of the game but now has the weapons to sustain drives. The Colts haven't been consistent on the whole but find themselves at 7-3 with six games to go. Rivers should continue posting QB2 numbers in fantasy. The Titans' banged up defense is up next.

    Advice: He also caught 5-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the pass game. Even with Matt Breida back in the lineup, Ahmed out-carried him 12-2, and Breida's only reps really came on the drive Ahmed missed while being checked for a shoulder injury.

    Tua Tagovailoa was benched in the fourth quarter of the Dolphins' Week 11 game against the Broncos after completing 11-of-20 passes for 83 yards and one touchdown.

    Advice: With the 6-3 Dolphins trailing the 3-6 Broncos 20-10 with about 10 minutes to play, Tagovailoa was yanked from the game in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Tua was horrendous and did nothing of note outside of a three-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker on Miami's opening drive of the game following a Drew Lock interception that set the Dolphins up in prime field position. The rookie did appear to possibly twist his ankle on his final play, but he remained on the sideline as Fitzpatrick took over and didn't have any trainers around him. Tagovailoa is 3-0 after three career starts, but it hasn't been because of him. This offense has been painful to watch with him under center. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:34 pm

    Advice: Bernard, seemingly bothered with some sort of upper body injury, rotated with Samaje Perine more than usual. Bernard's rushing opportunity was squelched by negative game script and he wasn't involved in the passing attack in the second half. As long as Joe Mixon is out with his foot injury, Bernard should be an RB2 option in PPR formats.

  • Kamara records first career start without a catch
    Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 45 yards and one score, failing to record a catch for the first time in his career in Week 11 against the Falcons.

    Advice: Kamara had previously recorded at least one catch in all 54 of his appearances with the Saints. Taysom Hill's presence tanked that trend as he targeted Kamara for a failed screen pass just one time on Sunday. Michael Thomas (9/104) meanwhile was revived with a 52.1% target share from Hill. Kamara still fortunately scored for his managers, punching in a three-yard touchdown run following Emmanuel Sanders' 45-yard gain to move the Saints inside the red zone, but the former's target share will be the talking point coming out of this one. Kamara should still be entrusted as a matchup-proof top-three option until further notice. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:36 pm

The under-performing seam stretcher has emerged as something of a bright spot over the Ravens' past two losses, catching 12 balls for 157 yards and his sixth touchdown. Today's score was a 31-yarder where Lamar Jackson dropped a dime in the bucket near the goal line. Of course, Jackson also missed Andrews on a potential red zone score earlier in the proceedings. Jackson is leaving a ton of yardage on the field, but the gains he actually makes have typically been going to Andrews. He will be a top-three option for Thursday's Thanksgiving showdown with the Steelers.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:20 pm

  • A.J. Brown goes 4/62/1 with TD of the year nominee
    A.J. Brown caught 4-of-7 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 11 win over the Ravens. 

    Advice: The modest target and production totals left a little something to be desired. Brown's 14-yard fourth quarter touchdown did not, as he obliterated multiple tackle attempts on his way to the end zone. That is not anything new for the Titans' second-year pro, but this was his new signature score. The 6-foot-1 wideout simply will not go down. The Titans need to continue to work on finding ways to get the ball in his hands. Brown has yet to have a double-digit target effort this season, and has zero rushing attempts. He will remain on the WR1/2 borderline for Week 12's tough matchup with the Colts, who held Brown to 1/21 in Week 10.   Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:31 pm

  • Chark stays quiet vs. Steelers stout defense
    D.J. Chark caught 4-of-8 targets for 41 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Chark led the Jaguars in targets and no other receiver saw more than five targets. That's the only positive takeaway from Chark's Week 11 outing. As long as Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out of the lineup, every piece of this offense is going to struggle. The receivers will be most affected but Minshew could be available for Week 12. With Luton throwing four interceptions, Minshew will almost certainly be back under center once healthy. Fantasy managers should view Chark as a WR3 until that day comes.

    Terry McLaurin caught 5-of-7 targets for 84 yards in Washington's Week 11 win over the Bengals. 

    Advice: McLaurin led the Football Team in targets, to no one's surprise. Alex Smith took a couple deep shots to McLaurin, one of which was completed for a 42-yard gain. Washington took the air out of the ball in the fourth quarter. Otherwise, McLaurin probably would have had well over 100 yards.

He tried to come back in but instead walked off into the team's medical tent and failed to return.

Bridgewater's status will be based on how he feels in warmups and if the team believes he doesn't have a weighted re-injury risk this week. If he is unable to go, XFL star P.J.

    Advice: It was a hugely disappointing effort against the league's worst pass defense, especially since Kyler Murray mystifyingly locked onto Larry Fitzgerald in crunch time. Murray's arm strength didn't seem quite all there after getting his shoulder wracked early, but that doesn't explain his inability to find his No. 1 wideout.

    Advice: Foles was hit hard on a near-sack and stayed on the ground for a few minutes before the cart came out for him. Tyler Bray entered the game for him with Mitchell Trubisky inactive this week. He completed one of his five passes on the Bears' final drive.  Rotoworld.com Nov 16, 8:05 pm

  • McCaffrey (shoulder) 'unlikely' for Week 11
    Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is unlikely to play in Week 11 against the Lions. 

    Advice: ESPN's Adam Schefter said the Panthers are "preparing [for] a multi-week absence" for their star running back after he hurt his shoulder late in the team's Week 9 loss to Tampa. Carolina could be without CMC and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) this week; that should make the Detroit defense a top Week 11 streaming option. Mike Davis, who left Week 10 briefly with a thumb injury, would presumably remain the team's primary back, though his fantasy usefulness has dwindled in recent starts.  Rotoworld.com Nov 16, 7:22 am

  • Salvon Ahmed sees 84 percent of Miami rushes
    Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed had 84 percent of the team's rushing attempts in Week 10's win over the Chargers. 

    Advice: Ahmed rushed 21 times for 85 yards and a touchdown with Jordan Howard inactive as a healthy scratch against LA. He ran 15 pass routes as the only Miami back to log a route. Matt Breida's (hamstring) eventual return could take some touches away from Ahmed, but it looks like fantasy players who picked him up last week may have stumbled on a lead back for a Dolphins team seeing plenty of run-friendly positive game script. That sound you hear is Zero RB drafters celebrating in the streets.  Rotoworld.com Nov 16, 7:02 am

  • Mark Andrews posts season highs in Week 10
    Mark Andrews caught 7-of-9 targets for 61 yards in Week 10 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Both the yards and catches were season highs for Andrews. He still hasn't scored since Week 5, but this was a step forward. With Nick Boyle leaving with a knee injury, Andrews is likely going to have a larger snap share than the 60% he averaged moving forward. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 9:17 pm

  • Giovani Bernard held to 12 touches for 47 yards
    Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 30 yards in the Bengals' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, adding four receptions for 17 yards.

    Advice: Bernard actually got out-gained 55-47 by Samaje Perine, handling the rock just four more times than his journeyman backup. Nearly half of Perine's handles came deep into garbage time, but with game flow negative from the jump, Bernard never had a chance to stack up touches. He also did nothing to help the Bengals to sustain drives, with Joe Burrow and company turning in a horrid performance on third downs. The Bengals badly need Joe Mixon (foot) back, but he didn't seem all that close to playing this week. Bernard will remain the clear-cut starter if Mixon again sits for Week 11 vs. Washington, but he will be a touch-based RB2 instead of plug-and-play RB1.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 5:10 pm

  • Alvin Kamara scores thrice in Week 10 win
    Alvin Kamara rushed eight times for 15 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 10 win against the 49ers, adding seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. 

    Advice: Kamara again paced the team in targets and dominated red zone touches with and without Drew Brees in the lineup. It was a nice bounce back from his down game in Week 9 against the Bucs. Kamara and the Saints capitalized on Niners' turnovers deep on their own end of the field, quickly cashing in the turnovers for touchdowns. The surest thing in fantasy football, Kamara takes on the Falcons in Week 11.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 4:51 pm

  • Jeudy leads Denver with 68 receiving yards in loss
    Jerry Jeudy caught 4-of-8 targets for 68 receiving yards in the Broncos' Week 10 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: Jeudy may have led Denver in receiving yards by KJ Hamler actually saw more targets than him, with 10 looks from Lock. He had nearly 200 receiving yards in his previous two games combined but this type of line may become the norm for Jeudy. Lock has been an erratic passer for most of his NFL career but two accurate games helped propel Jeudy to solid outings. If Jeudy has to compete with Noah Fant (seven targets) and Hamler in the pecking order, it's going to be difficult for him to consistently post usable fantasy weeks. He projects as a WR3 in a difficult matchup versus the Dolphins next week. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 4:48 pm

  • Salvon Ahmed goes for 85 yards, TD in first start
    Salvon Ahmed rushed 21 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Chargers.

    Advice: Ahmed was the clear lead back with Matt Breida (hamstring) sidelined and Jordan Howard a healthy scratch. He built on last week's solid showing, averaging 4.0 YPC and converting on a goal-line carry for his score. The Dolphins gave DeAndre Washington only two touches behind Ahmed. With Breida and Myles Gaskin nearing returns, Ahmed's snaps could take a hit going forward, but he's played well enough to have a role when everyones healthy. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 4:32 pm

  • Hopkins hauls in game-winning Hail Murray vs Bills
    DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-12 targets for 127 yards and one score — the game-winning 43-yard reception between three defenders — in Arizona's Week 10 win over the Bills.

    Advice: This league. With :10 seconds remaining and the Cardinals trailing 30-26, Kyler Murray was forced to his left, set his feet while falling backwards, and launched a 43-yard Hail Mary that Hopkins leaped for and ultimately came down with between the murderers' row of Tre'Davious White, Jordan Poyer, and Micah Hyde. It was not only Nuk's fourth touchdown of the season but the one that moved the Cardinals into sole possession of the NFC West ahead of Thursday night's head-to-head showdown against Seattle on a national stage. Hopkins has now seen at least seven targets in 8-of-9 games with Murray, pacing for 156 at season's end. He'll remain an elite option for that one. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 4:31 pm

  • Tua Tagovailoa wins third straight game
    Tua Tagovailoa completed 15-of-25 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Chargers.

    Advice: He ended up with negative rushing yards after kneeling out the game. Tagovailoa remained undefeated as the Dolphins' starter, though Miami hid him behind a run-heavy gamescript in this one, rushing it 32 times.  There should have been at least two interceptions for Tua that the Chargers dropped. It's also the second time in three starts he failed to clear 200 yards. Still, this was another step forward for Tua, who was playing without Preston Williams. The Dolphins play the Broncos in Week 10. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 4:21 pm

  • Danny Amendola has 10 yards in Week 10 win
    Danny Amendola caught all three of his targets for 10 yards in the Lions' Week 1 win against Washington. 

    Advice: The veteran followed up his team-leading seven catches for 77 yards in Week 9 with a clunker against the Football Team. Amendola should remain on waiver wires outside of PPR leagues with multiple flex spots. He will retain some fantasy usefulness if Kenny Golladay (hip) is out again in Week 11.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 3:28 pm

  • Chark sees five targets from Luton in Week 10 loss
    D.J. Chark caught 4-of-5 targets for 56 yards in Jacksonville's Week 10 loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Chark missed a handful of practices mid-week, so perhaps that's why he failed to make an impact. Jake Luton looked Chark's way on Jacksonville's first play from scrimmage but only targeted him four more times throughout the afternoon — a disheartening result since the offense was short Laviska Shenault (hamstring) on Sunday. Chark's final line can also be attributed to Luton's poor play (169 yards, 4.8 YPA) under center. Fantasy players will have no choice but to downgrade Chark in an impossible matchup in Week 11 against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 2:58 pm

  • Swift dominates backfield touches in Week 10 win
    DeAndre Swift rushed 16 times for 81 yards in the Lions' Week 10 win over Washington, adding five receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown. 

    Advice: Adrian Peterson saw a mere four carries and Kerryon Johnson had one rush in the Detroit win. It seems the team is finally ready to embrace the rookie as their lead back after wasting a month pretending Peterson was the answer to their problems. Swift made something out of nothing on a few inside carries in the second half as the Lions milked the clock with a lead. His touchdown was a determined run after the catch that ended with Swift bulldozing a defender for the score. Fantasy players who stayed patient with Swift in September and October were rewarded handsomely in Week 10. The reward could continue for the rest of the season. He'll be a fringe RB1 in Week 11 against a terrible Panthers run defense.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 2:04 pm

  • McLaurin has 7 grabs, 95 yards in Week 10 loss
    Terry McLaurin caught 7-of-9 targets for 95 yards in Washington's Week 10 loss to the Lions, adding one rush for 27 yards. 

    Advice: McLaurin was one of the many beneficiaries of Alex Smith torching the Lions for 390 yards in a comeback try that fell just short. Concerns that Smith under center would be a disaster for McLaurin's fantasy value have been dispelled by McLaurin catching 14 balls for 210 yards and a touchdown over the past two weeks. The Football Team's passing game will continue to run through McLaurin in Week 11 against the Bengals.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 1:37 pm

  • D'Andre Swift earns the start versus Washington
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports D'Andre Swift will start for Detroit in Week 10 against Washington. 

    Advice: Pelissero noted that Detroit has used a mixed backfield to this point but stated Swift "leads the way today." That doesn't guarantee that Adrian Peterson is an afterthought in this offense but it does sound like Swift will be in for a larger role than usual. Swift peaked at 14 carries in Week 6 and only has two games of more than ten carries on the year. His floor is slightly higher on the back of this news but he remains an RB2.  Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 9:22 am

  • McCaffrey (shoulder) among Week 10 inactives
    Panthers declared LT Russell Okung, RB Christian McCaffrey, QB Will Grier, DT Bruce Hector, CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver, Sean Chandler and OL Michael Schofield as inactive for Week 10 against the Bucs.

    Advice: McCaffrey returned last week from his multi-week ankle sprain and swiftly picked up a shoulder issue, but the team seems optimistic he could play in Week 11. The other notable player missing is Okung, who has been in and out of the lineup all season long. Greg Little, Dennis Daley and others likely will rotate to find the best fit on the left side.

  • Jerry Jeudy (shoulder) expected to play vs Raiders
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (shoulder, questionable) is expected to play in Week 10 against the Raiders.

    Advice: Broncos coach Vic Fangio said earlier in the week that he "expects" Jeudy to play so Rapoport's report just affirms Fangio's statement. Jeudy didn't log a full practice but Fangio's optimism indicates that shouldn't be limited versus Las Vegas. Coming off career-highs in every receiving category (7/125/1), Jeeudy has solidified himself as a WR2 and can be comfortably started in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Nov 15, 5:12 am
