  • Howard to get in another limited practice
    Jordan Howard (stinger) will remain a limited participant at Friday's practice.

    Advice: Howard has practiced all week but hasn't been cleared for contact while battling a stinger. With Howard's status up in the air and Darren Sproles lost to a season-ending hip injury, don't be surprised if Philadelphia adds a running back ahead of Sunday's 4:25 PM ET start against New England. Free agent Jay Ajayi (who the Eagles are hosting for a workout Friday) could be a possibility while practice-squadder DeAngelo Henderson would be an option if the Eagles choose to stay in house.

  • Le'Veon Bell (ribs) to remain limited Friday
    Le'Veon Bell (ribs, illness) will remain a limited participant at Friday's practice.

    Advice: Bell could draw the questionable tag for Sunday's game, though we'd expect to see him in uniform at Washington. Ranked dead-last in yards per carry among qualified rushers (3.1 yards per attempt), Bell's debut season in East Rutherford has largely been a train wreck, though a bounce-back game could be in order against an inept Redskins run defense (allowing fifth-most rushing yards per game).

  • Howard (stinger) not cleared for contact
    Jordan Howard is dealing with a stinger and has not been cleared for contact.

    Advice: That would seem to be a problem with Philadelphia hosting New England in just over 48 hours. With Darren Sproles (hip) ruled out for the season on Friday, the Eagles are down to Miles Sanders and Boston Scott as their lone healthy running backs. Coach Doug Pederson acknowledged that free agent Jay Ajayi was "in the building" Friday and could play against the Patriots if needed. Fantasy owners invested in Howard should be making other arrangements for Week 11. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:24 am

  • Torn hip flexor ends Darren Sproles' season
    The Eagles announced Darren Sproles will miss the remainder of 2019 with a torn right hip flexor.

    Advice: He suffered a partial tear in Week 5 before returning against Chicago in Week 9. Further tests Thursday confirmed his injury had worsened, prompting the Eagles to rule him out for the remainder of 2019. 36 and coming off consecutive injury-plagued seasons, this could very well be the last we see of Sproles in the NFL. A three-time Pro Bowler, the 15-year vet was one of the more entertaining players in football during his prime. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:23 am

  • Trey Edmunds totals 38 yards vs. Browns
    Trey Edmunds rushed three times for 11 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 loss to the Browns, adding three receptions for 27 additional yards.

    Advice: James Conner re-injured his shoulder and departed after six touches, leaving Edmunds as the No. 2 back behind Jaylen Samuels. Even with 10 days to heal up, Conner is probably on the wrong side of questionable for next week's potential eruption spot in the Bengals' No. 32 run defense. Depending on who is or isn't healthy/signed in free agency, Edmunds could have Week 12 FLEX appeal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm

  • Jaylen Samuels finds end zone as receiver
    Jaylen Samuels rushed five times for 26 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 loss to the Browns, adding five receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: James Conner touched the ball only six times before departing with an aggravation of his shoulder injury, but the Steelers struggled to get Samuels involved despite the fact that JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion) joined Conner on the sideline. Even with all the injuries in the Steelers' backfield, Samuels has cleared 10 carries just twice. If Conner is out, Samuels will have major RB2 appeal for next week's smash spot with the Bengals' league-worst run defense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm

  • Kareem Hunt: 17 targets across two games
    Kareem Hunt caught 6-of-8 targets for 46 yards in the Browns' Week 11 win over the Steelers, adding six rushes for 12 additional yards.

    Advice: Being used like James White behind workhorse Nick Chubb, Hunt is now up to 17 targets in two games, adding 10 carries on the ground. Chubb is running too well to cede early-down work, but Hunt has already established himself as the Browns' No. 3 weapon in the passing game, giving him immediate PPR FLEX value. Hunt could flirt with RB2 status vs. the pathetic Dolphins in Week 12. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 pm

  • Nick Chubb has 92-yard night vs. Steelers
    Nick Chubb rushed 27 times for 92 yards in the Browns' Week 11 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: With Kareem Hunt operating as the third-down back, Chubb was targeted just once in the passing game, failing to corral it. Despite Hunt's involvement, Chubb's 27 touches actually matched his season high, while he's now cleared 20 carries in five-straight games and 7-of-8. Hunt's presence dings both Chubb's floor and ceiling, but it shouldn't be a concern against the pathetic Dolphins in Week 12. Chubb will remain a locked-in RB1 for that one.

    Free agent RB Jay Ajayi will visit the Eagles on Friday.

    Advice: Ajayi has worked out for the Lions and Cardinals in recent weeks. The Eagles don't have a major need at running back, though scatback Darren Sproles has been unable to stay on the field. Ajayi would lack fantasy value if he reunited with his former team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 pm

Not listed on the injury report, the Steelers will have to explain. Conner had a six-yard reception and five carries for 10 yards before departing.

    David Montgomery (ankle) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Matt Nagy said Montgomery "lightly rolled" his ankle Wednesday, but it's not a good sign that it was too tender to practice on one day later. We would consider Montgomery on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday evening's game against the Rams, though even a "limited" day on Friday would put Montgomery back on track to suit up. If Montgomery can't go, the Bears will be down to second-year UDFA Ryan Nall behind Tarik Cohen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:11 pm

    Advice: Injuries have been the story of Jackson's season as the seventh-round sophomore has only logged one appearance since Week 4. Melvin Gordon, who has experienced a renaissance under newly-appointed OC Shane Steichem, will continue to operate as L.A.'s lead back with Austin Ekeler seeing most of his work on passing downs.

    Adrian Peterson (toe) didn't practice on Thursday.

    Advice: It's a downgrade for Peterson, who opened the week as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice. This is almost certainly a maintenance day for the veteran, whose only absence this year came when he was a healthy scratch for the Redskins' season-opening loss to Philadelphia. AD has operated as a true workhorse since Bill Callahan's ascension to interim head coach, though the return of Derrius Guice (recently activated from injured reserve) figures to throw a wrench in that plan.

  • Jordan Howard (shoulder) practicing again
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) practiced again Thursday.

    Advice: Howard was limited Wednesday coming off the Eagles' Week 10 bye. Barring a late-week setback, he should be available Sunday against New England. With their receiving corps decimated by injuries, the Eagles have been among the most ground-heavy teams in football (seventh-highest run percentage), though game script could work against Howard this week with the Patriots installed as 3.5-point road favorites. Howard has ceded most passing-down duties to rookie Miles Sanders, who leads all rookie running backs in receiving yards with 305. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:30 am

  • Montgomery 'lightly rolled' ankle Wednesday
    Coach Matt Nagy said RB David Montgomery "lightly rolled" an ankle in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Montgomery should be considered questionable for Sunday night's matchup against the Rams. The injury and road matchup against the Rams' third-ranked defense in rush DVOA isn't ideal, but continue to treat Montgomery as a low-end RB2 based on volume alone if active. Only Dalvin Cook (86 touches since Week 8), Christian McCaffrey (71), Nick Chubb (67) and Chris Carson (66) have been featured more than Montgomery (65) over the past three weeks.

  • Le'Veon Bell (ribs) to be limited Thursday
    Le'Veon Bell (ribs, illness) will be limited in practice Thursday.

    Advice: Bell himself along with coach Adam Gase have already clarified that the Jets' starting RB is good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. Bell has at least 15 touches in all but one game this season, but is averaging career-low marks in both yards per carry (3.1) and yards per target (5). Up next is another glorious matchup against the Redskins' 26th-ranked defense in fewest PPR per game allowed to opposing RBs. Still, Bell is better treated as a low-end RB2 inside of the Jets' 30th-ranked scoring offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 am

    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 Wednesday, 2:50 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 Wednesday, 1:15 pm

    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.

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

    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 Tuesday, 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.

    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. Jaylen Samuels could still be involved in the passing game, but treat Conner as a low-end RB1 in this plus matchup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:58 am

    Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Kareem Hunt will "continue to get opportunities."

    Advice: "He's a good football player, he did really good for his first time back, and he'll continue to get opportunities," Kitchens said. Hunt was surprisingly in on 38-of-69 offensive snaps in his Browns debut, being featured on the field alongside Nick Chubb on 43 percent of Cleveland's plays. A massive part of the game plan, Hunt's nine targets finished behind only Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry. Even if his role stays the same moving forward, Hunt has immediately established himself as a PPR FLEX for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:31 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. Conner has impressed when healthy this year, contributing 449 yards from scrimmage with five touchdowns over his last four appearances. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:45 am

  • Jaylen Samuels held to 40 total yards in win
    Jaylen Samuels rushed 14 times for 29 yards and caught 3-of-7 targets for 11 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Samuels is not a traditional running back and it's fair to question if he should handle 10+ carries in NFL games, but he had been a reliable plug-and-play fantasy starter whenever James Conner missed because of his pass-catching ability. This week, Mason Rudolph had issues connecting with Samuels, who also lost 10 combined carries to Tony Brookes-James and Trey Edmunds. If Conner misses Week 11, Samuels will be a volume-based RB2 option with pass-catching upside against the Browns. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:44 pm

  • Nick Chubb has another 100-yard day on ground
    Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 116 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bills, adding two receptions for five yards.

    Advice: The 100-yard day on the ground was Chubb's third in four games, and fourth in six. The big news, though, was Kareem Hunt's return and immediate role on offense. Hunt hauled in seven receptions on a whopping nine targets and added 4/30 on the ground. Chubb still kept his usual 20-touch role, but that is going to be more difficult for tougher matchups like Thursday's short-week date with the Steelers. Hunt is real, and he won't be going away for the desperate Browns. Chubb will be a low-end RB1 vs. Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:16 pm

    Advice: Bell was held in check all game by the Giants defensive line, with a long run of four yards. He converted a goal-line carry to give the Jets a fourth-quarter lead that ended up sealing the win. Other than that, Bell really struggled in this one. It's been a tough year for Bell, who looks miscast in Adam Gase's zone-run scheme. Bell has another favorable spot against the Redskins in Week 11. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:45 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

  • Kareem Hunt catches seven passes in CLE debut
    Kareem Hunt caught 7-of-9 targets for 44 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bills, adding four carries for 30 additional yards.

    Advice: A massive part of the game plan in his Browns debut, Hunt's nine targets were behind only Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry. Hunt added the desired explosive change-of-pace element, though Nick Chubb kept up his hot running. Hunt undoubtedly cost him a few handles. Hunt was also part of a disastrous failed pitch with Baker Mayfield that was initially ruled a fumble six. Replay mercifully revealed it was a "pass."

    Le'Veon Bell (knee) is questionable for the Jets' Week 10 matchup against the Giants.

    Advice: When asked of Bell's chances of playing Week 10 against the Giants, Jets coach Adam Gase said, "It looks good." It's better to treat Bell as more of an upside RB2 based on volume alone if active against the Giants in Week 10. He's the PPR RB15 this season despite the Jets' general ineptitude and set up well against the Giants' 23rd-ranked defense in fewest PPR per game allowed to opposing RBs. The Jets would likely utilize a two-back committee of sorts with Ty Montgomery as the lead pass-down back and Bilal Powell as the primary early-down option if Bell ultimately misses time. Each would be thin plays inside of the league's 31st-ranked scoring offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:54 pm

    Advice: Edmunds didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but got in a full practice Friday and will suit up Sunday. He's expected to again see plenty of ground work, but a matchup against the Rams' stout front-seven isn't the spot to target an early-down grinder.

  • James Conner (shoulder) ruled out for Sunday
    James Conner (shoulder) has been ruled out for the Steelers' Week 10 matchup against the Rams.

    Advice: Jaylen Samuels posted a strong 63% snap rate with eight carries and 13 (!!!) targets with Conner sidelined last week. Trey Edmunds (ribs) is also banged up, so Samuels could see an even larger role on the ground this time around. Treat him as a borderline RB1 as a near every-down workhorse with plenty of receiving upside. The Rams defense has been much better against the run (No. 4 in DVOA) than the pass (No. 15) this season.

  • Gase on Bell's Week 10 status: It looks good
    When asked of Le'Veon Bell's chances of playing Week 10 against the Giants, Jets coach Adam Gase said, "It looks good."

    Advice: Bell suffered a knee injury in last week's loss to Miami. That necessitated an MRI, though luckily his tests came back clean. The seventh-year workhorse has struggled to find running room while playing behind a porous Jets offensive line (3.3 yards per carry), though his strong usage (20.6 touches per game) keeps him firmly in the RB1 discussion.

  • Jacobs clears 100 yards, scores touchdown
    Josh Jacobs rushed 16 times for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 10 win over the Chargers, adding three receptions for 30 additional yards.

    Advice: Jacobs' volume felt down for most of the evening, but it was only because the Chargers were dominating time of possession. He ended up touching the ball on 20-of-55 plays, a massive number. None was bigger than Jacobs' game-winning 18-yard touchdown with 1:02 remaining. Jacobs was practically untouched as he shot like a cannonball through the hole. The score was especially sweet since Jacobs had barely been involved in the Raiders' hurry-up offense, frustratingly ceding snaps to Jalen Richard. Despite that, Jacobs' 30 receiving yards were his most of the season. Jacobs has 10 days to rest up for a smash spot in the Bengals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:58 pm

  • Trey Edmunds (ribs) misses another practice
    Trey Edmunds (ribs) remained sidelined at Steelers practice Thursday.

    Advice: With James Conner (shoulder) already ruled out, the Steelers' running back depth chart behind Jaylen Samuels is looking extremely confused, as both Edmunds and Benny Snell (knee) are on the wrong side of questionable. Someone named "Tony Brooks-James" is the next man up. A preseason grinder, UDFA Brooks-James would undoubtedly get carries behind Samuels, whom the Steelers do not consider a true between-the-tackles option. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:19 pm

  • Conner (shoulder) expected to miss Week 10
    Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports James Conner (shoulder) is not expected to play Week 10 against the Rams.

    Advice: Conner resumed practicing Wednesday but apparently he hasn't progressed enough to get the green light for Week 10. With Conner headed for another absence, backfield responsibilities in Pittsburgh will be shared between Jaylen Samuels and Trey Edmunds. Samuels (13-73-0 receiving line in Week 9) is the better fantasy bet of those two and should be regarded as an RB2, particularly in the PPR realm, where he has always thrived.

  • Le'Veon Bell (knee) to be limited Thursday
    Le'Veon Bell (knee) will be limited in practice Thursday.

    Advice: Bell didn't practice Wednesday. Coach Adam Gase said the team would "see how he progresses after that." The Jets' decision to promote RB Josh Adams from the practice squad doesn't bode well for Bell's availability. It's better to treat Bell as more of an upside RB2 based on volume alone if active against the Giants in Week 10. He's the PPR RB15 this season despite the Jets' general ineptitude and set up well against the Giants' 23rd-ranked defense in fewest PPR per game allowed to opposing RBs.

  • Trey Edmunds a surprising DNP on Wednesday
    Trey Edmunds (ribs) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: James Conner (shoulder) was expectedly limited. Edmunds handled 12 carries behind Jaylen Samuels without Conner in Week 9 but this setback brings his involvement into question. If Conner's able to suit up for Sunday, Edmunds would also take a backseat. Jaylen Samuels projects as an RB1 if starting but mere FLEX option if Conner powers through.

  • Conner (shoulder) limited, Trey Edmunds DNP
    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

  • MRI clean on Le'Veon's knee but DNP Wednesday
    Le'Veon Bell (knee, ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Adam Gase said Bell pushed to practice, but he's "really sore" and the two sides agreed it was best for him to just rehab Wednesday. Ultimately, Gase expects Bell to play Sunday against the Giants where he'll be a borderline RB1/2 in what should be a close game between two bad clubs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:12 am

  • Freddie hints Hunt could hurt Chubb's touches
    Coach Freddie Kitchens hinted Nick Chubb's touches could take a hit with the addition of Kareem Hunt to the backfield.

    Advice: When asked if Hunt's activation off the suspended list could affect Chubb's opportunities, Kitchens responded, "Nick is about one thing, and one thing only, and that's winning. I don't think either one of those two are selfish at all." Chubb has been the lone consistent week to week force in the Cleveland offense. We still like him as an RB1 moving forward, but the arrival of Hunt throws a wrench into the situation. Previous No. 2 back Dontrell Hillard had been in on roughly 40% of the snaps over the last two weeks while averaging six touches per game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:53 am

  • Josh Jacobs upgraded to 'full' on Tuesday
    Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was upgraded to "full" on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jacobs' status is not in doubt for Thursday's short-week matchup with the Chargers. The Bolts' already run-vulnerable defense will be without LB Denzel Perryman (knee). Jacobs is an RB1 for Week 10. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:48 pm

  • Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice Wednesday
    Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Adam Gase said the team would "see how he progresses after that." The Jets promoted RB Josh Adams from the practice squad on Tuesday, which would signal a lack of faith in Bell's availability. The team did claim the move was to block another team from signing Adams. The situation is far from hopeless, but Bell owners need to be making alternate plans ahead of Sunday's inter-stadium date with the Giants. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:12 pm

  • Tomlin 'optimistic' Conner (shoulder) plays
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said James Conner (shoulder) will again be limited to begin the week.

    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. Jaylen Samuels needs to be rostered everywhere even if/when Conner's cleared. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:11 am
