  • Tyler Higbee DNP, Gerald Everett limited
    Tyler Higbee (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Higbee has been a non-factor this season while Gerald Everett has enjoyed a mini breakout season in his third year as a pro. Everett, however, was limited in practice with a wrist injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 pm

  • Shanahan misspeaks, Kittle not out quite yet
    Updating a previous report, George Kittle (knee) has not been formally ruled out for Week 11 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Coach Kyle Shanahan informed the media that Kittle would be out for Week 11, but he clarified his statement afterward. It's still unlikely that Kittle plays this weekend since he didn't practice on Wednesday, but the door remains somewhat open at the moment. If Kittle is ultimately ruled out, Ross Dwelley will take on Arizona's league-worst defense against tight ends. Kittle owners should definitely have a backup plan for Week 11.

  • Jacoby Brissett expected to start Week 11
    Jacoby Brissett (knee) is expected to start Week 11 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: Colts coach Frank Reich said Brissett would start as long as he practiced fully, and the quarterback did just that on Wednesday. Barring an unexpected setback, Brissett will take the keys back from Brian Hoyer, who was awful in the Colts' loss to the Dolphins last week. Brissett's return is a welcome sign for Marlon Mack and Indy's pass catchers. The Colts (5-4) need Brissett and T.Y. Hilton healthy down the stretch to make the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:06 pm

  • Chase Edmonds (hamstring) DNP Wednesday
    Chase Edmonds (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Edmonds is likely going to be sidelined through the Cardinals' Week 12 bye and may not have much of a role when he returns if David Johnson and Kenyan Drake are healthy then. Edmonds is purely a low-level handcuff in deep leagues with Arizona clearly happy with Drake's performance in recent weeks. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:58 pm

  • David Johnson not on Wednesday's inj. report
    David Johnson was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Advice: This comes as a surprise after coach Kliff Kingsbury said Johnson has "obviously" been slowed by ankle and back injuries. In Week 10, Johnson was not running anywhere near his top speed and was limited to just five carries and one target. Arizona has lost the trust of fantasy owners this season, and it's muddied up projections for touches between Johnson and Kenyan Drake. Kingsbury said his plan is to find the best role for his running back duo "over the next few weeks." We'll see if Johnson stays off the injury report heading into Week 12's game against the 49ers.

  • George Kittle (knee) out Week 11 vs. Arizona
    George Kittle (knee) will miss Week 11 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Coach Kyle Shanahan informed the media after Wednesday's practice. It's poor timing for fantasy purposes with the league's worst defense against tight ends on schedule, but San Francisco is taking the long-view approach with Kittle. The stud tight end will be pushing to return in Week 12 against the Packers. Ross Dwelley will be a TE2 streaming option in the meantime. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:39 pm

  • Gerald Everett limited by a wrist injury
    Gerald Everett (wrist) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Being limited early in the week usually isn't that big of a deal, but Everett's status on Thursday and Friday are worth monitoring. When healthy, Everett has been a low-end TE1, especially with Brandin Cooks (concussion) sidelined. The third-year pro has enjoyed a mini breakout season after showing signs of upside as an NFL prospect. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:17 pm

  • Arians: RoJo 'can do even more' as a receiver
    Coach Bruce Arians said Ronald Jones "can do even more in the passing game".

    Advice: Arians specifically mentioned doing more than just catch screen passes because Jones has developed his route tree. All of this praise comes just days after Jones surprisingly caught 8-of-8 targets for 77 yards against Arizona. It's an ability we haven't seen out of the former second-rounder even going back to his college days at USC, but Jones has taken positive steps all across the board in 2019 after a miserable rookie season. Jones is ascending towards RB2 fantasy value. He'll be tested against the Saints this weekend. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:11 pm

  • Keith Kirkwood comes off IR, practices WED.
    Saints designated WR Keith Kirkwood (hamstring) for return from injured reserve.

    Advice: It's unclear when Kirkwood will be active on game day, but he will be a low-volume option alongside Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith when that day comes. As a rookie last season, Kirkwood averaged 10 yards on his 21 targets. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:10 pm

  • Matt Breida (ankle) misses practice Wednesday
    Matt Breida (ankle) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: As expected. Breida will reportedly be sidelined for "1-2 weeks" while his re-aggravated low-ankle sprain heals. Raheem Mostert should slide right into his 1B role next to Tevin Coleman, as the former did on 35 percent of San Francisco's snaps in the team's first three games behind Breida while Coleman healed. Fantasy players should expect to be without Breida until the 49ers' Week 13 contest against Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:50 pm

  • Sanders (ribs) misses Wednesday's practice
    Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: As was George Kittle (knee) and Matt Breida (ankle). Trending towards a true game-time call against the Cardinals, Sanders' pending absence would simultaneously tank San Francisco's offense all the while putting rookie Deebo Samuel in a great position to follow-up on his 8/112 from Monday night. Fantasy players should look elsewhere instead of taking Sanders' official status to kick-off. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:37 pm

Coach Kyle Shanahan was ominous on Kittle's Week 11 availability when talking to the media, stating he's "hopeful" his star tight end will be ready for the 49ers' 4:05 PM ET tilt with the Cardinals.

  • Dede Westbrook (shoulder) a full participant
    Dede Westbrook (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Westbrook was listed as a full participant out of Jacksonville's bye, presumably clearing him to return to the field on Sunday. With Nick Foles back under center, Westbrook projects as a confident WR3 over the second half of the season since the prized $88-million acquisition came into '19 targeting his slot players at the sixth-highest rate over the last two seasons. Westbrook's availability also moves Keelan Cole back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:14 pm

  • Will Fuller (hamstring) officially 'limited'
    Will Fuller (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It's the first time Fuller's officially practiced since injuring his hamstring back in Week 7. Kenny Stills totaled nine targets on 90.5 percent of Houston's offensive snaps in the interim but projects to return to his previous slot role if Fuller's cleared for Sunday (which has yet to be determined). It's slightly worrisome for DeAndre Hopkins since he's buoyed Fuller's absence into a whopping 36 percent target share in the Texans' last three games. Hopkins merely saw 28 percent of the team's targets before the burner's hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:07 pm

  • Demaryius (hamstring) limited on Wednesday
    Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: As was Robby Anderson (back/shoulder), though both are expected to suit up against Washington. Given the pass-protection woes of New York's offensive line, the 31-year-old's floor is arguably higher than Anderson's at this point of the season. Fresh off a 6/84 outing against the Giants, Thomas will be ranked as a WR4/5 in Week 11. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm

  • Robby Anderson (back) limited in practice
    Robby Anderson (back, shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Anderson's fully expected to play, though his potential impact is another topic altogether. The 26-year-old burner's been an afterthought in the last month, totaling 8/97 on 21 targets (5.3 per game) in New York's last four contests. The Jets' o-line may render the over-the-top speedster to a WR4/5 to close the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:46 pm

  • Marquise Brown (ankle) limited on Wednesday
    Marquise Brown (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Brown was only in on 19 snaps (40%) against the Bengals but it's not a stretch to chalk that mark up to Cincinnati's incompetent offense. With competitive game script projected for Sunday's showdown against the Texans, Brown should be on the field (and targeted) often. He's a WR3 if cleared by Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:44 pm

  • Amari (knee, ankle) DNP, expected to suit up
    Amari Cooper (knee, ankle) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Cooper's been hobbled countless times this year — most recently with a knee injury prior to blowing up for 11/147/1 against the Vikings on Sunday night — but it hasn't effected his performance whatsoever. He's fully expected to suit up in an exquisite matchup against Detroit's banged up defense in Week 12. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:17 pm

  • Jordan Howard (shoulder) limited Wednesday
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: His designation is odd if only because the Eagles just returned from extended rest over their bye week. Howard has yet to eclipse the 100-yard mark in any game this year but has handled double-digit touches in every contest since Week 3, including 23 and 19 carries in his last two. Sunday makes for a great matchup as long as he's cleared since the Patriots have recently been gouged on the ground by Nick Chubb (20/131) and Mark Ingram (15/115). Miles Sanders would soak up any vacant opportunity if Howard sits. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm

  • Jack Doyle (shoulder) DNP for Colts Wednesday
    Jack Doyle (shoulder) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Doyle was out-snapped by teammate Eric Ebron 43 to 42 on Sunday but it wasn't thought to be for injury reasons. His status will obviously be worth monitoring throughout the week as Ebron would become an every-down TE1 following his 5/56 performance (behind a team-high 12 targets) if Doyle's surprisingly ruled out.

  • Gio (knee) not on Wednesday's injury report
    Giovani Bernard wasn't listed on the Bengals' injury report Wednesday.

    Advice: Makes sense after Bernard reportedly wasn't expected to miss "significant time," anyways. Cincinnati's coaching staff threw their arms into the air and handed Joe Mixon a whopping 32 touches against Baltimore once Bernard left in the first half but that count presumably won't continue with the latter back healthy for Week 11. Unfortunately, Bernard's presence only cannibalizes Mixon's workload as opposed to making Gio a fantasy option himself. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:25 pm

    Trey Burton (calf) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Burton was replaced by Ben Braunecker in the fourth quarter of Chicago's Week 10 win against the Lions. Both Adam Shaheen and Braunecker could likely produce more in Burton's role anyhow as the latter's seen just two targets over the last two weeks. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 pm

  • David Montgomery (ankle) limited Wednesday
    David Montgomery (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: It could be much ado about nothing considering Chicago's force-fed the rookie on 65-of-86 backfield touches in their last three games. It's also the first time Montgomery's been listed on their injury report this season. Barring an unexpected mid-week downgrade, fantasy players should still consider him an opportunity-based RB2 for his 16.3 touches per game and apparent monopoly on all goal-line work heading into Sunday night's contest against the Rams.

    Washington coach Bill Callahan said Chris Thompson (toe) is still "out with injury."

    Advice: Thompson hasn't practice since he initially exited in Washington's game against the Dolphins in Week 6. With both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson presumably healthy moving forward, Thompson's role upon his return will likely be diminished. Even deep league fantasy players can move on.

  • Alex Erickson (back) sidelined on Wednesday
    Alex Erickson (back) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Rookie Stanley Morgan saw a career-high 38 snaps against the Ravens as Erickson was surprisingly limited with a back injury. If anything, both A.J. Green's (ankle) and Erickson's pending absences increase Tyler Boyd's floor after the latter saw a team-high eight targets from rookie Ryan Finley in his first start. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:53 am

  • Thielen (hamstring) not practicing Wednesday
    Adam Thielen (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He was in attendance rehabbing with resistance training on the sidelines but didn't participate in team drills. With Minnesota's bye week occurring immediately after Sunday's contest against Denver, it seems farfetched for Thielen to suit up and potentially experience his second re-aggravation since initially injuring his hamstring in Week 7. Fantasy players should expect increased involvement for seventh-round rookie Olabisi Johnson, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith if Thielen recovers for one more week. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:22 am

  • Rapsheet: Breida (ankle) to miss 1-2 weeks
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.

    Advice: Breida aggravated a low-ankle sprain in the Monday night loss to the Seahawks. Raheem Mostert should slide right into his 1B role next to Tevin Coleman, making Mostert a worthwhile FLEX option for desperate fantasy owners looking for 8-10 touches. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:43 am

    Jacoby Brissett (knee) is expected to practice in full Wednesday.

    Advice: That would put Brissett on track to return to the lineup this week against the Jaguars where the Colts need a win after last week's pitiful home loss to the Dolphins. Brian Hoyer was horrendous in place of Brissett, so Indy should be doing everything it can to get Brissett back in the huddle. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:41 am

    George Kittle (knee) remains day to day, though coach Kyle Shanahan is "hopeful" he will be ready for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Despite his hopefulness, Shanahan stopped well short of suggesting Kittle would likely play. It doesn't sound like Kittle will practice on Wednesday, and Thursday is probably a stretch, too. Kittle seems all but certain to be a game-time decision for the 49ers' 4:05 PM ET tilt with the Cardinals. Keep your back-up plans handy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:25 pm

  • Sanders day to day, could be game-time call
    Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is day to day and expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest with the Cardinals.

    Advice: The word comes straight from coach Kyle Shanahan, who described Sanders' injury as a "rib cartilage" issue. Sanders was sorely missed in Monday evening's fiasco of a loss to the Seahawks. The 49ers don't have an NFL-caliber receiver corps without their trade deadline acquisition. If Sanders can get cleared, he will be facing a Cardinals defense he ripped for 7/112/1 in Week 9.

  • James Conner gets in another 'full' practice
    James Conner (shoulder) remained "full" on Tuesday.

    Advice: It means Conner is ready to return for Thursday's game against the Browns after missing Weeks 9 and 10. Conner's presence was sorely missed, especially against the Rams. Once again running as a bell-cow workhorse, Conner is squaring off with a defense allowing 135 rushing yards per game and nearly five yards per carry. He's in the RB1 mix for Week 11.

  • Matt Breida (ankle) could 'miss some time'
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Matt Breida (ankle) "may miss some time."

    Advice: Breida will get a second opinion after re-spraining his ankle Monday night. This doesn't sound like too bad of a setback, but it puts his Week 11 status in jeopardy. Breida has a history of playing through injuries — he played most of 2018 at less than 100 percent — but the 49ers may want him rested for their stretch run. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson would see expanded roles if Breida misses time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:43 am

    Matt Breida rushed 10 times for 18 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for seven yards in the 49ers' Week 10 loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: Breida left in the second half after re-injuring his ankle and never returned to the game. He was on the injury report during the practice week with an ankle issue but wasn't listed on the final report Saturday. On a short week, it will be a challenge for Breida to get ready for Week 11 against the Cardinals, though he routinely plays through ailments. Raheem Mostert filled in for him with 35 yards on seven touches alongside Tevin Coleman. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:33 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.

  • Jacoby (knee) needs FP on Wednesday to start
    Coach Frank Reich said Jacoby Brissett (knee) will start this week if he's a full participant in practice Wednesday.

    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.

    Advice: The Steelers didn't actually practice Monday, but they're required to submit an estimated practice report. Additional reports have also indicated that Conner is expected to suit up for Thursday night's matchup against the Browns. Conner has racked up 17, 18, 14, 23 and 26 touches in five games since the offense lost Ben Roethlisberger for the season, working as the unit's undisputed workhorse.

Kenny Stills totaled nine targets on 90.5 percent of Houston's offensive snaps in the interim against the Raiders and Jaguars but will return to his previous slot role if Fuller's cleared in time for Week 10's showdown against the Ravens.

Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Bernard is not expected to miss "significant time." Sixth-round rookie Trayveon Williams, who has played just one offensive snap in 2019, could be thrust into a more prominent role if Bernard's injury costs him any games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:46 am

  • James Conner (shoulder) expected back for TNF
    Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports James Conner (shoulder) is expected to return for Thursday's Week 11 matchup with the Browns.

    Advice: Conner has been shelved the past two weeks with a lingering shoulder injury, but appears to be on track for Thursday night's game in Cleveland. His return should provide a substantial boost to what has been a stagnant Pittsburgh rushing attack. With Conner and Benny Snell (knee) absent, the Steelers averaged an anemic 1.6 yards per carry Sunday in a win over the Rams.

    Advice: Cooper was a game-time decision with knee and ankle injuries. He looked fully healthy, leading the Cowboys in both receiving and targets. Cooper put on a show with three sideline catches, including on a 12-yard touchdown from Dak Prescott. Despite playing through injuries, Cooper has at least 80 yards or a touchdown in 7-of-9 games.

  • Gerald Everett has 8 receptions in road loss
    Gerald Everett caught 8-of-12 targets for 68 yards in the Rams' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Everett led the Rams in targets and receptions in an odd, low-scoring game for Los Angeles. Jared Goff predictably struggled against pressure on the road, but that may have actually helped Everett because he was frequently targeted as a check-down option. After today's game, the third-year tight end already has more receptions and yards in 2019 than he had in 16 games last season. Everett will be a low-end TE1 against the Bears next week as he continues his mini breakout season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:25 pm

  • Doyle posts 3-44-1 line on four targets
    Jack Doyle caught 3-of-4 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Colts’ Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Doyle got loose for a couple chunk plays on short designed passes off of play action in the first half and scored on a short one-yard touchdown after not being covered later in the second half. Still, it’ll be tough to expect consistent production here considering multiple WRs, RBs and TEs are involved in the passing game of this run-first offense. Doyle is a touchdown dependent TE2 next week regardless of if Jacoby Brissett (knee) manages to return. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:23 pm

    Advice: It's another nondescript game for Anderson, who has been held under 50 yards in 7-of-10 games. Anderson saw fewer targets than both Demaryius Thomas and Jamison Crowder. Anderson has another plus matchup with the Redskins in Week 11, but he's just a boom-or-bust deep threat. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:31 pm

    Advice: Thomas came into the game questionable with a hamstring injury, and briefly exited before returning on the next series. This ended up one of his better performances after Thomas had been held to fewer than 50 yards in four of the six games he's been healthy. Thomas still doesn't have much redraft value, but he'll be on the streaming radar for a Week 11 matchup with the Redskins. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:24 pm

  • 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 Sunday, 2:13 pm

  • RoJo scores, catches 8/77, loses fumble
    Ronald Jones rushed 11 times for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 10 win over the Cardinals, catching eight passes for 77 additional yards.

    Advice: Jones also lost a fumble and was out-gained by Peyton Barber on the ground in the definition of a mixed day. Jones' giveaway, which came at the end of an eight-yard reception on the Bucs' second-to-last drive, was completely inexplicable, as he simply popped the ball out himself as he was attempting to re-secure it. It was the kind of mistake that would make a coach end a film session in disgust. It was all Barber on the Bucs' final, game-winning possession. That includes a one-yard score. Jones will remain a volatile FLEX option for next Sunday's hosting of the Saints' feisty run defense. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:00 pm

  • Montgomery chips in with 60 rushing yards
    David Montgomery totaled 60 yards on 17 carries Sunday in Chicago’s Week 10 victory over the Lions.

    Advice: He managed a long run of only nine yards. Montgomery ran 14 routes (two fewer than Tarik Cohen) but wasn't targeted. The rookie wasn't quite as sluggish as his tepid 3.5 yards per carry would suggest, breaking three tackles along the way. He and Cohen saw similar playing time (Montgomery out-snapped him 34-29), though D-Mont won the touch battle by a comfortable 17-7 margin. While efficiency has so far eluded him (3.6 yards per carry for the year), Montgomery has kept himself in the weekly RB2 conversation by virtue of his impressive volume (16.3 touches per game) and monopoly on goal-line carries (five touchdowns). We'll see how the rookie fares in a challenging road environment next week against the Rams. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:31 pm

    Advice: On the first play of the game, Lamar Jackson found Brown over the top for a 49-yard chunk gain. It was a play reminiscent of what we saw from Brown earlier in the season. Later in the game, Brown broke free for a 20-yard touchdown. If the Bengals would have had a functioning offense, Brown would've had an even bigger game. With Houston coming to town next week, Brown will be a high-upside WR3 in a must-watch game. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:09 pm

    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.

Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder have proven capable of providing fantasy value in spurts inside of this pitiful offense.

Diggs' pitiful 1-4-0 performance in Week 9 snapped his three-game streak with at least 140 yards, but he's tentatively expected to see more volume this week considering Kirk Cousins has fed his featured pass-game option 15, 7, 7, and 11 targets in games following a performance with fewer than five pass-game opportunities since 2018.

Diggs' pitiful 1-4-0 performance in Week 9 snapped his three-game streak with at least 140 yards, but he's tentatively expected to see more volume this week considering Kirk Cousins has fed his featured WR 15, 7, 7, and 11 targets in games following a performance with fewer than five pass-game opportunities since 2018.

  • Cooper (knee) visiting doctor, won't practice
    Amari Cooper (knee) is visiting a doctor to go over his MRI and won't practice Thursday.

    Advice: Cooper is reportedly expected to play in Week 10 against the Vikings, but he's clearly not operating at 100 percent. Cooper (unbeknownst to media) suffered a knee injury in practice last week and re-aggravated it after stumping his knee into the turf Monday night. If healthy, continue to treat the Cowboys' undisputed No. 1 pass-game target as a high-end WR1. Michael Gallup, Randall Cobb and a mix of Cedrick Wilson and Tavon Austin would likely work in 3-WR sets if Cooper is ultimately sidelined. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:52 am

  • Chase Edmonds (hamstring) DNP Wednesday
    Chase Edmonds (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Edmonds is expected to miss a "few weeks", so it will very likely be David Johnson and Kenyan Drake as Arizona's main backs for Week 10. With Drake in town, Edmonds isn't likely to have a major role when he gets healthy. The Cardinals have the 49ers in Week 11 and a bye in Week 12. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:38 pm

    James Conner (shoulder) was limited for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Meanwhile backup Trey Edmunds (ribs) surprisingly didn't practice. Tomlin was "optimistic" Conner would suit up for Week 10 but did warn he would be limited to begin the week. Conner's availability for Sunday will ultimately come down to his status on Friday's injury report. Jaylen Samuels needs to be rostered everywhere no matter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:56 pm

  • 'Expectation' is Amari Cooper (knee) suits up
    ESPN's Todd Archer reports Amari Cooper (knee) is expected to play in Week 10 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Cooper (unbeknownst to media) suffered a knee injury in practice last week and re-aggravated it after stumping his knee into the turf Monday night. He missed practice on Wednesday but will reportedly suit up under the lights against Minnesota. The 25-year-old has now fought through heel, ankle, quadriceps, and knee injuries this year but has still performed admirably in ranking No. 8 in receiving yards (701) on a team-high 57 targets. He's a WR1 if officially active Sunday night. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:38 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

    Adam Thielen (hamstring) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Thielen isn't expected to suit up Sunday night after re-aggravating his hamstring in Minnesota's Week 9 loss to the Chiefs. Coach Mike Zimmer expressed some optimism Minnesota's ailing wideout would return in Week 11 against the Broncos, but his availability in that one is also a true question mark with the Vikings hitting their bye the following week. Even if active and limited in his next two contests, Thielen should return to full health by the time the Vikings take the field for Week 13 in Seattle. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 am

  • Nagy admits Trey Burton isn't 100 percent
    Coach Matt Nagy admitted Trey Burton isn't 100% recovered from offseason groin surgery.

    Advice: Burton has been laughably bad in the box score this season, averaging two catches per game with zero efforts of more than 20 receiving yards and zero touchdowns. He obviously belongs nowhere near fantasy rosters. Burton could be someone the Bears look to cut in the offseason. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 am

    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

  • Thielen's hamstring pull not a long-term deal
    Coach Mike Zimmer said Adam Thielen's latest hamstring aggravation isn't believed to be a long-term issue.

    Advice: Thielen is expected to miss this week's Sunday night game against the Cowboys, but it sounds like he could again return after missing just one game. Thielen tried to play through it last week against the Chiefs but ended up aggravating it on the first drive and missed the rest of the day. For now, Thielen owners just need to sit tight and hope he gets right for Week 11 against the Broncos. The good news is the Vikings have a Week 12 bye. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 am

  • Thielen (hamstring) expected to miss Week 10
    NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports Adam Thielen (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 10 against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Pelissero's source claims Thielen's injury is "no worse after his brief appearance in Kansas City." That, of course, is hard to believe considering it was an aggravation and he's now already being rumored as out for another game. The Vikings' bye is in Week 12. There's a non-zero percent chance we don't see Thielen until afterward, but that would be extreme. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 am

    Advice: Tomlin said he expects Conner to "perk up" as the week progresses and remained "optimistic" he'll suit up for Week 10 against the Rams. Even so, Tomlin added he would "make no bold predictions" on Conner's game day status. The oft-injured back will begin the week limited with an eye on Friday's practice to determine his official designation for Sunday.

  • Cooper goes 4-80-1 with 45-yard TD in win
    Amari Cooper caught 4-of-7 targets for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 9 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Cooper appeared to tweak his knee early in this one and went into halftime with 2-30-0 before laying waste to a nonexistent Giants defense for a wide-open 45-yard touchdown on a deep crosser in the second half. Cooper has 100 yards and/or one touchdown in 6-of-7 healthy games this season and is a legit weekly WR1 every time he suits up. He gets a shaky Vikings pass defense next Sunday night and should see plenty of up-and-down top CB Xavier Rhodes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:00 pm

  • Thielen (hamstring) will play when ready
    Coach Mike Zimmer, when discussing Adam Thielen (hamstring), said, "Whenever the doctor says he's ready to play, he's ready."

    Advice: Thielen played just seven snaps and saw one target before exiting the Vikings' Week 9 loss against the Chiefs. He should be considered very questionable for Sunday night's primetime matchup against the Cowboys. Each of Bisi Johnson (83% snaps), Laquon Treadwell (28%) and backup TE Irv Smith (61%) were more involved than usual with Thielen sidelined. Johnson probably offers the highest floor for fantasy purposes as long as Thielen is out. Rotoworld.com Nov 4, 12:09 pm

  • Arians: RoJo has earned the right to start
    Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Ronald Jones has "earned the right to start" and "play more snaps."

    Advice: "He's been consistent," Arians said of Jones. "He's been more explosive. It's not that Peyton [Barber] did anything wrong." Jones had out-rushed Barber 314 to 262 on five fewer carries heading into Week 9 but it still took Arians until November to christen last year's No. 38 overall pick as the team's starter. Nonetheless Jones was in on a season-high 53 percent of Tampa Bay's offensive snaps against Seattle while Barber had his role diminished to season-lows in carries (4) and snaps (14%). Arizona's allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, putting Jones in prime position to dominate as a RB2 in his second consecutive start.

    Marquise Brown caught 3-of-4 passes for 48 yards in Week 9 against the Patriots.

    Advice: Brown played 58 percent of snaps after missing the last two weeks. He was involved early but faded with the Ravens milking the clock in the second half. Brown has been incredibly injury prone and hasn’t done anything since Week 2, getting held under 50 yards in four straight games. He'll be a boom-or-bust FLEX for Week 10 against the Bengals.

  • Jones out-touches Barber 20-4 in Week 9
    Ronald Jones was responsible for 67 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries along with two catches for 15 yards on two targets Sunday in the Buccaneers’ Week 9 loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: Notably, Jones—who has spent the year working in tandem with Peyton Barber—led the backfield with 20 touches to Barber's four. The second-round sophomore was largely held in check (3.7 yards per carry), though he did provide an eight-yard touchdown on Tampa's opening drive, marking his third end-zone visit of 2019. The Buccaneers are unquestionably a pass-first offense—they attempted 44 passes compared to just 26 runs in Sunday's defeat. But when Tampa Bay does decide to run, it's usually with Jones, who has at least been serviceable in his newfound role atop the Bucs' backfield pecking order. Faced with a reasonably good matchup back home against the Cardinals, Jones can be regarded as a no-frills RB3/flex in Week 10. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 6:16 pm

  • Demaryius no-shows in loss to Dolphins
    Demaryius Thomas corralled two catches for 19 yards on three targets Sunday in New York’s Week 9 loss to Miami.

    Advice: Demaryius converted a clutch fourth-down conversion on the Jets' opening drive but was otherwise a non-factor as Sam Darnold mostly looked to Jamison Crowder and Le'Veon Bell (nine targets each) in Sunday's defeat. Thomas has underwhelmed in his time with New York, producing 19 catches for 232 scoreless yards in six games for Gang Green (38.7 yards per game). Fantasy owners shouldn't pay him much mind, even with a favorable draw against the Giants in Week 10. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 2:46 pm

  • Jordan Howard gets 19 carries in revenge game
    Jordan Howard rushed 19 times for 82 yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia's Week 9 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Even with Darren Sproles back healthy, Howard out-carried Miles Sanders (10/42) 19 to 10 and handled goal line work as Philadelphia's lead back. Leaky run defense has been an issue for Chicago ever since Akiem Hicks went down and that proved to be the case again as Howard and Sanders combined for 29/124/1 on the ground. Sproles and the rookie figure to continue soaking up targets from the backfield, but Howard remains a touchdown-dependent RB3 who projects to lead Philadelphia in carries over the second half of the season.

    Jack Doyle caught 3-of-4 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Doyle caught a touchdown thanks to some nifty route-running ability inside the red zone to score from 11 yards out. He was otherwise nothing more than a complementary pass-game option. Doyle (54 snaps) continued to work well ahead of Eric Ebron (24) in terms of snaps, but neither will offer anything resembling consistent fantasy production in this TE committee. This is especially true as long as Jacoby Brissett (knee) is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 2:22 pm

  • David Montgomery punches in two one-yard TDs
    David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 40 yards and two scores, adding three catches for 36 yards in Chicago's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: He was the lone bright spot for Chicago as Mitchell Trubisky tanked Allen Robinson's (1/6) outlook in a juicy matchup. Montgomery totaled a single rushing yard and rode the pine for the Bears' first opportunity inside the five-yard line in the first half but punched his first score in during the third quarter when Trubisky was stuffed at the 1 on a scramble. His second touchdown occurred after Tarik Cohen was knocked out of bounds next to the pylon. Having handled 48-of-62 backfield touches in Chicago's last two games, Montgomery is arguably making his case as an opportunity-based RB2 over the second half of the season. He'll be a Top 20 play at his position in Week 10 against the Lions. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 2:17 pm

  • Anderson (2-33-0) a non-factor vs. Dolphins
    Robby Anderson notched two catches for 33 yards on four targets Sunday in the Jets’ Week 9 loss to Miami.

    Advice: Anderson was largely ignored in this one as Sam Darnold latched onto slot receiver Jamison Crowder (nine targets) while also feeding Le'Veon Bell, who drew nine targets out of the Jets' backfield. Week 9 looked like a home-run spot for Anderson, particularly in the absence of star corner Xavien Howard (placed on injured reserve earlier this week). But obviously none of that materialized. With Darnold's confidence seemingly shot, it might be slim pickings for Anderson, a vertical threat who is at his best beating defenders downfield. Anderson has another mouthwatering against the inept Giants in Week 10, though with the way New York's offense is struggling right now, it's anyone's guess if he can take advantage.

    Advice: According to FOX sideline reporter Pam Oliver, Thielen told teammates "I'm done" despite the Vikings calling him questionable to return to action. Prior to leaving, Thielen didn't catch a pass on one target. On that target, he had to twist back to a ball, which may have been when he pulled the hammy again.

    Advice: Jaylen Samuels is poised for a workhorse role with both Conner and Snell sidelined. The entire Steelers' rushing attack is set up well against a Colts defense that has been much better against the pass (No. 15 in DVOA) than the run (No. 29) this season.
