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

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

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

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

  • Josh Gordon active for Seahawks debut vs. SF
    Josh Gordon is active for Week 10 against the 49ers Monday.

    Advice: Gordon was claimed off waivers last week and will be making his Seahawks debut. It's obviously a tough matchup, and Gordon is unlikely to play a full snap share. Inactive for the Seahawks are WR Jaron Brown, CB Akeem King, WR John Ursua, RB C.J. Prosise, OG Phil Haynes, S Lano Hill, and DE L.J. Collier. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:56 pm

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

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

  • Ty Johnson remains in concussion protocol
    Coach Matt Patricia confirmed that Ty Johnson remains in the concussion protocol.

    Advice: J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins are the only RBs remaining in the Lions' injury-riddled backfield. Matt Stafford (back) is also far from 100%. It'd be surprising if the team didn't add a RB to the equation prior to their Week 11 matchup against the Cowboys. If they don't, McKissic could have a featured role with a double-digit touch floor.

    Advice: Funchess is eligible to return Sunday against the Jaguars, but Reich noted, "He’s got a few boxes to check though before he can play." Limited snaps seem likely for Funchess if he manages to suit up, but there's plenty of opportunity available in the Colts' injury-riddled WR room. Both T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) are tentatively expected to miss Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:22 pm

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

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

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

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

    Advice: Green saw renewed swelling in his surgically-repaired ankle last week and then witnessed the Bengals attempt just 30 passes in a 49-13 loss against the Ravens on Sunday. Yet, the Bengals haven't considered a "shutdown" for their injury-prone veteran, who is still aiming to return at some point this year. In the meantime, Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson will continue to operate as Cincy's top receiving trio. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:04 pm

Even if he manages to return, James Conner (shoulder) is nearing full health and expected to suit up Thursday night against the Browns.

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.

  • Alexander Mattison gets eight carries in win
    Alexander Mattison handled eight carries for 52 yards in Minnesota's Week 10 win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Mattison played his usual role behind Dalvin Cook (26/97/1) for the second straight week, seeing the field on merely 14-of-76 offensive snaps. Mattison's role has shown its true colors with Minnesota engulfed in competitive game scripts in their last two contests, shoe-horning the rookie into a true handcuff spot on just 13.5 percent of the team's snaps in that span. He's a league-winning backup if Cook ever goes down. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:40 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 Today, 7:45 am

  • Devonta Freeman (foot) heading for MRI
    Devonta Freeman (foot) will undergo an MRI Monday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Despite the setback, Green was spotted rehabbing at Paul Brown Stadium Sunday morning. Despite an 0-8 record and seemingly nothing to play for, the Bengals have not considered a "shutdown" for their injury-prone veteran, who is still aiming to return at some point this year.

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

    Advice: Gordon was left off the injury report but that doesn't guarantee him a spot in the starting lineup. When asked about Gordon's availability, coach Pete Carroll said, "There’s a good chance" he'll play, but he's taking a "wait-and-see" approach since Gordon is new to the offense. With Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf both playing well, Gordon isn't expected to see many targets in the next couple of weeks. It's best to keep Gordon on the bench in season-long leagues with so much up in the air right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:41 pm

  • DJ (ankle) not listed on final injury report
    David Johnson (ankle) wasn't listed on the Cardinals' final injury report.

    Advice: Look for the Cardinals to utilize a one-two punch featuring Johnson as the backfield's 1.A. option and Kenyan Drake in more of a 1.B. role based on how well the team's new RB performed during his debut. Still, it might be tough to expect consistent fantasy production from Drake as long as Johnson is active; the Cardinals' featured back played at least 60% of the offense's snaps in Weeks 1-6 before leaving early in Week 7 due to injury.

    Advice: 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.

He's established himself as a truly #good pass catcher through nine weeks, ranking among the league's top-15 WRs in yards per target (No. 4), yards per reception (No. 10) and catch rate (No. 15).

    A.J. Green (ankle) has been ruled out for the Bengals' Week 10 matchup against the Ravens.

    Advice: Alex Erickson will continue to replace Green in 3-WR sets along with Auden Tate and Tyler Boyd. The entire Bengals Offense carries a low ceiling and floor after benching Andy Dalton in favor of fourth-round rookie Ryan Finley. The former NC State QB improved in each of his three seasons as a starter, although Finley (6.3% deep-ball rate) joined an underwhelming group of QBs featuring Mike Glennon (6.6%), Ryan Griffin (6.5%) and Nathan Peterman (6%) as the only signal callers to throw the ball more than 20-plus yards downfield on fewer than seven percent of their passes during the preseason (PFF). Only the Dolphins (16.8 points) are implied to score fewer points than the Bengals (17.8) this week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:19 am

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

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

    Advice: It was Gordon's knee that ended his Patriots career a few weeks ago.

Both will be needed as pass catchers against the Bucs' pass-funnel defense, though Johnson will almost certainly take the lead on the ground.

  • A.J. Green suffered setback, out indefinitely
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports A.J. Green suffered a setback to his injured ankle and is now out indefinitely.

    Advice: Green had already been ruled out for Sunday's home matchup against Baltimore after experiencing renewed swelling in his surgically-repaired left ankle. Now it's anyone's guess when we might see the ninth-year receiver back in uniform. "Right now, my ankle is saying it's too much," said Green, who implied he may have overexerted himself during Monday's practice session. "That's when you gotta back off." With little to play for, the 0-8 Bengals may opt to throw in the towel by placing Green on injured reserve, something they probably should have done two months ago. With Green shelved indefinitely, Cincinnati will move forward with Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson operating in three-wide sets. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:30 pm

    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.

I'm not really worried about that situation." This sounds like it is going downhill fast. Green was supposed to finally make his 2019 debut this week but has since removed himself from consideration.

    Advice: Green had been on track to make his 2019 debut as recently as 24 hours ago, but now the veteran's status appears to be up in the air again. The 31-year-old didn't practice Wednesday despite having the bye week to rehab his surgically-repaired ankle. Even if Green gets the green light for Sunday's home tilt with Baltimore, it stands to reason he won't see his full allotment of snaps. That makes him a risky fantasy endeavor, particularly with unproven quarterback Ryan Finley making his starting debut. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:16 am

  • Benny Snell (knee) misses practice Wednesday
    Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Meanwhile, James Conner (shoulder) was a limited participant, which gives him at least a shot at playing Week 10 against the Rams. Depth back Trey Edmunds (ribs) joined Snell on the sidelines of Wednesday's practice. There are a lot of moving parts in the Steelers backfield given all of the injuries. Practice reports on Thursday and Friday are worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:47 pm

  • 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

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

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

  • 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

  • A.J. Green saga continues, now 'day to day'
    Bengals coach Zac Taylor said A.J. Green (ankle) didn't feel well enough to practice and is now considered "day to day."

    Advice: Green reportedly didn't feel great after Cincinnati's walkthrough and immediately went to receive treatment. He's officially considered 'day to day' heading into Sunday. Green wouldn't put a percentage on his chances of playing despite Taylor's optimism, bringing further doubt into his potential availability against the Ravens. Taylor also made it known the free agent to be will have a "number of plays" ready upon returning as he gets eased back into the offense. For now, consider Green questionable for Week 10.

  • Update: A.J. Green (ankle) absent Wednesday
    Updating a previous item, A.J. Green (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: He was expected to practice in full, and coach Zac Taylor spoke to the media earlier Wednesday, saying Green is likely to make his season debut this week. It's unclear what's going on, but it's only Wednesday, so Green can easily still suit up Sunday. For now, we'll consider Green questionable for Week 10. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 am

    Coach Zac Taylor expects A.J. Green (ankle) to make his season debut Week 10 against the Ravens.

    Advice: Green was practicing ahead of the Bengals' Week 8 trip to London and had the bye week to get ready for this one. We still wouldn't expect Green to be his normal every-down self at this point, and he's now saddled with rookie Ryan Finley making his NFL debut. Green should be treated as a WR4 until he has a game or two under his belt. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:39 am

  • 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Advice: Mattison didn't reel in his lone target as he couldn't get both feet in bounds on a sideline shot in the end zone. This was one of the rookie's weaker games in the box score, and he remains little more than a handcuff for Dalvin Cook. Rotoworld.com Nov 3, 1:37 pm

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

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

    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.

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

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

With Benny Snell (knee) additionally sidelined for the next few weeks following a meniscus trim, Jaylen Samuels projects to handle nearly every touch ahead of Trey Edmunds and Tony Brooks-James in the Steelers' next two games.

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

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

    Advice: Johnson should walk right back into his starting role, although Kenyan Drake deserves to keep getting touches after posting 15-110-1 rushing and 4-52-0 receiving lines against the 49ers on Thursday night. Overall, Drake posted a workhorse 84% snap rate. Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is tentatively expected to be sidelined again. Rotoworld.com Nov 1, 1:00 pm

    Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) has been ruled out for the Steelers' Week 9 matchup against the Colts.

    Advice: James Conner (shoulder) is doubtful). Jaylen Samuels is poised for a workhorse role with both Conner and Snell likely sidelined. The Steelers are set up well to run on the Colts, who rank 29th in rush defense DVOA, although they've allowed the seventh-fewest PPR per game to the RB position this season. Only the Patriots, 49ers, Ravens, Bucs, Falcons and Panthers have allowed fewer receiving yards to opposing RBs than the Colts this season. Still, volume is king, so fire up Samuels as a low-end RB1 in this spot. Rotoworld.com Nov 1, 11:09 am

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

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

  • No sign of Hilton (calf) at Friday's practice
    T.Y. Hilton (calf) was not spotted during the open portion of Friday's practice.

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

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