  • Rashard Higgins not targeted vs. Steelers
    Rashard Higgins wasn't targeted in the Browns' Week 11 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: Although he's now the Browns' unquestioned No. 3 receiver following the release of Antonio Callaway, Higgins was on the field for just 28-of-70 snaps. The Browns were featuring lots of two-tight end sets. Higgins got upstaged by No. 4 wideout KhaDarel Hodge, who caught a 41-yard pass. It just isn't happening for Higgins this year, who can't even be trusted as a WR5 in PPR leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm

  • Tevin Jones catches two passes for 24 yards
    Steelers WR Tevin Jones caught 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 11 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: A 26-year-old fourth-year UDFA, Jones had never before caught a pass in his career. He was forced into heavy snaps on offense by injury to JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion). Regardless of Smith-Schuster and Johnson's Week 12 health, Jones will not be on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm

  • Johnny Holton catches pass vs. Browns
    Steelers WR Johnny Holton caught 1-of-7 targets for 18 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 11 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Holton entered the evening with zero grabs on six targets but was forced into heavy snaps by injury to JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion). Inexplicably, Holton led the team in targets. Even if JuJu and Johnson remain sidelined for next week's game against the Bengals, Holton will be hard to take seriously as a WR5 with Mason Rudolph at the controls. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm

  • James Washington has 49-yard effort in loss
    James Washington caught 3-of-4 targets for 49 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 loss to the Browns.

    Advice: Washington also drew a 33-yard DPI on the Steelers' second drive. Denzel Ward did interfere, but Washington's awful ball skills actually worked to his favor on the play, tangling the two up more than they otherwise would have been. The 49 yards were a disappointment on a night where JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson were both knocked out with concussions. Their health will determine where Washington is ranked for next week's mouthwatering matchup with the Bengals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm

  • Jarvis Landry scores for third-straight game
    Jarvis Landry caught 4-of-7 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 11 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: Landry has now scored in three-straight games, though tonight was the first time in four contests he was held below 10 targets. His touchdown was a one-yarder where he was left uncovered. Landry could have to spend more time on the outside now that Antonio Callaway has been waived, which would lower his floor in PPR leagues. Either way, he will be a rock solid WR3 for Week 12 against the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm

  • Beckham starts hot, finishes with 60 yards
    Odell Beckham caught 4-of-10 targets for 60 yards in the Browns' Week 11 win over the Steelers.

    Advice: Beckham came out blazing hot on the Browns' opening drive, catching two passes for 49 yards. His second reception appeared to be a 43-yard touchdown, but replay ruled him down at the one-yard line. It would be a costly overturn for fantasy players, as Beckham somehow gained only 11 more yards all evening. An inaccurate Baker Mayfield could not connect with his No. 1 wideout. Beckham has 22 targets over his past two games but just 117 yards to show for it. He will maintain blow-up potential for Week 12 vs. the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 pm

  • Diontae Johnson injured on vicious head shot
    Steelers WR Diontae Johnson was forced from Thursay's game against the Browns with a head injury and will not return.

    Advice: Johnson was taken out on a sickening helmet-to-helmet hit from Browns FS Damarious Randall in the third quarter. Johnson was the definition of defenseless after the ball had already sailed long, and Randall missiled in. Randall was ejected. Johnson was bleeding from the ear as he was helped into the medical tent then carted to the locker room. The Steelers have already lost JuJu Smith-Schuster to a helmet-to-helmet concussion this evening. Johnson had just two catches for 17 yards before going down. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:31 pm

  • Smith-Schuster departs after helmet shots
    JuJu Smith-Schuster was forced from Thursday's game against the Browns with a concussion and will not return.

    Advice: Smith-Schuster took not one, but two helmet shots trying to haul in a second quarter reception and immediately went down in a heap. The medical team had the backboard ready, but Smith-Schuster was eventually able to head to the locker room with assistance. Smith-Schuster did not appear well. It's a concerning development for a player who spent some time in the concussion protocol in 2017. The Steelers will finish out the evening with James Washington, Diontae Johnson and Johnny Holton as their top-three receivers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:29 pm

  • Dante Pettis (back) pops up on injury report
    Dante Pettis was added to Thursday's injury report, getting in a limited session with a back issue.

    Advice: Pettis' status is barely worth mentioning anymore, but the 49ers appear likely to be without Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and George Kittle (knee) against the Cardinals. Coach Kyle Shanahan put Pettis on blast earlier this week, saying he will continue to lose opportunities since he is not taking advantage of them. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:34 pm

  • Antonio Callaway likely to be suspended again
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Browns were "bracing" for another substance-abuse suspension with recently-waived WR Antonio Callaway.

    Advice: Callaway's ban would be 10 games after he sat out four to begin the season. Fowler also reports that Callaway was once again late for a team function this week. Those off-the-field headaches combined with Callaway's frustrating Sunday play basically had him begging for his release. The light has not come on for 22-year-old Callaway, who could have been a first-round talent in last year's NFL draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:43 pm

  • Alex Erickson (back) resumes practice
    Alex Erickson (back) resumed practicing on a limited basis Thursday.

    Advice: Hooray! It is indeed a bleak state of affairs when your team relies on Erickson, primarily a special teamer before this season, as one of its core receivers. It's been that kind of year for the Bengals, who have yet to win a game under rookie coach Zac Taylor. Erickson enjoyed a productive stretch earlier this season but was held without a catch in Week 10. Even with injuries piling up at the position and four teams on bye, you can probably do better than Erickson as your WR3. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:43 pm

  • Will Fuller gets in another limited practice
    Will Fuller (hamstring) got in another limited practice on Thursday.

    Advice: It means Fuller avoided setbacks after Wednesday's return, though it would still be nice to see him get in a full session on Friday. Until he does, he should be considered genuinely questionable to return against the Ravens. If Fuller does suit up, he will slot in as a mid-range WR3 and knock Kenny Stills down to low-end WR4 value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:33 pm

  • Amari Cooper (knee, ankle) back at practice
    Amari Cooper (knee, ankle) resumed practicing on a limited basis Thursday.

    Advice: Cooper was a spectator to begin the week but remains on track for Sunday's game in Detroit. Even with All-Pro Darius Slay likely to shadow him, Cooper remains an upper-echelon WR1 in all formats. With a payday forthcoming in free agency (or perhaps sooner if the Cowboys extend him), Cooper picked the right time to have a breakout year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:20 pm

  • Browns throw in the towel on Antonio Callaway
    Browns waived WR Antonio Callaway.

    Advice: This was probably always how it was going to end for Callaway in Cleveland, or any NFL city for that matter. Physically a first-round talent, Callaway fell to the fourth round in 2018 because of a litany of off-the-field concerns. He then proceeded to earn a four-game substance-abuse ban to begin 2019. When he was on the field, Callaway flashed serious big-play ability but committed more mistakes. A recent final straw was Callaway showing up late to a meeting last week, which earned him a Week 10 healthy scratch. Still only 22, Callaway will probably get a second NFL chance, but his NFL future is dim. His off-the-field issues coupled with his gaffe-prone play will have him on the edge of whatever 53-man roster he ends up on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:04 pm

    Steelers placed WR Ryan Switzer (back) on injured reserve.

    Advice: FB Roosevelt Nix (knee) is also headed to I.R. while LB Jayrone Elliott and practice-squad WR Tevin Jones were activated in the corresponding roster moves. Switzer played sparingly this year, providing 48 yards from scrimmage on 14 combined touches over 81 offensive snaps. He was also active on special teams, returning eight punts for 29 yards and nine kickoffs for 166 yards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:48 pm

  • Emmanuel Sanders, Kittle not practicing
    Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) remained sidelined on Thursday.

    Advice: As did George Kittle (knee). Sanders seems to have better odds of suiting up than Kittle, but it is not looking good. Rib issues are usually a matter of pain tolerance, so Sanders could still show up feeling better on Friday or Saturday. He did participate in Thursday's walk-through, while coach Kyle Shanahan has said he will not need to practice to play. Either way, fantasy owners need to plan on being without the WR2. Sanders' absence would mean another big workload for Deebo Samuel. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 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 Wednesday, 2:37 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 Wednesday, 2:07 pm

    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 Wednesday, 1:17 pm

    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.

  • Kyle Shanahan: Fewer opportunites for Pettis
    Speaking Tuesday, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Dante Pettis will continue to see fewer opportunities.

    Advice: "The more he doesn't take advantage of his opportunities, the less opportunities he gets," was Shanahan's blunt assessment after another Pettis dud against the Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Even with Emmanuel Sanders lost early to a ribs injury, Pettis was held without a catch on a modest three targets. This was as Kendrick Bourne looked like a minor leaguer but continued to be fed looks. A bitter 2019 fantasy disappointment, the time to drop Petts was two weeks ago. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:31 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.

    Advice: It's the first time Fuller's practiced in any capacity since initially exiting in Week 7 against the Colts. 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.

  • Callaway benched for 'disciplinary reasons'
    Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Antonio Callaway was benched for "disciplinary reasons" in Week 10.

    Advice: Callaway spent Week 10 as a spectator, riding the pine as a healthy scratch against Buffalo. "That’s between Antonio and I," said coach Freddie Kitchens when asked to explain the receiver's surprise absence. Cabot hears Callaway showed up "about 20 minutes late for something," which may have led to Sunday's benching. The good news is Kitchens called the benching a "one-game thing." Callaway is tentatively expected to replace Rashard Higgins and join Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry in three-wide sets, but limited snaps are strong possibility. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:41 am

    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.

  • Diontae Johnson has 4-64-0 on six targets
    Diontae Johnson caught 4-of-6 targets for 64 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Johnson has been an inconsistent second or third option behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and that continued against the Rams. James Washington was the best receiver in Week 10, but Johnson and Washington will continue competing against each other for targets. In his seven weeks as a starter, Johnson is averaging 3.7 receptions per game. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR5 against the Browns next week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:01 pm

    James Washington caught 6-of-7 targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Rams.

    Advice: Washington led the Steelers in all receiving categories, including targets. The second-year receiver started the game with a red zone touchdown on a jump ball in the corner of the end zone and then busted off 34-yard run later in the game. Unfortunately, Washington had a fumble while running after the catch, but it was otherwise a nice game for the up-and-down receiver. Washington will continue to be a boom-or-bust WR5 with the Steelers offense among the league's worst with Mason Rudolph under center. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:56 pm

    JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 3-of-6 targets for 44 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Rams.

    Advice: This was a sloppy offensive game by both teams but that's what we should expect with Mason Rudolph at quarterback for the Steelers, who have a strong defense. Smith-Schuster simply isn't seeing the volume he had last season when he was an every-week WR1. Over the last six games, Smith-Schuster has four games with under four receptions and 50 receiving yards. JuJu's inconsistencies have dropped him into the boom-or-bust WR3 discussion.

    Jarvis Landry caught 9-of-10 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bills.

    Advice: For his 17-yard score, Landry beat Levi Wallace 1-on-1. As has been the case more than once this season, Landry's big day felt fueled in part by the opposing No. 1 corner (Tre'Davious White in this instance) shadowing Odell Beckham. Although he's drawn at least 10 targets in three straight games, Landry will be a low-ceiling WR3 for Week 11 vs. the Steelers. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:32 pm

  • Odell Beckham goes 5/57 in rare Browns win
    Odell Beckham caught 5-of-12 targets for 57 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bills.

    Advice: Beckham nearly had a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage — he had a step on Tre'Davious White — but Baker Mayfield wasn't on target. After that, White largely had OBJ's number, but the wideout did manage to draw a DPI on White in the end zone. Beckham has caught at least five passes in four straight games but managed to clear 60 yards only twice in the process. Beckham's volume remains that of a WR1, but the yardage and scores simply haven't been there in the Browns' dysfunctional offense. Beckham has a brutal short-week draw in the Steelers for Week 11.

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (questionable, toe) is expected to play Week 10 against the Rams.

    Advice: Smith-Schuster was a late addition to the injury report, earning the questionable label after being downgraded to limited participation at Friday's practice. Luckily, the toe injury won't be enough to sideline him Sunday against Los Angeles. Jalen Ramsey's presence could potentially pose a threat to his Week 10 production, though JuJu—who has lined up in the slot on nearly 61 percent of his snaps this year—figures to avoid shadow coverage.

That should remain the case in Week 10 as Cooper plans to gut it out through knee and ankle injuries on Sunday night.

    Advice: Fuller has yet to practice since going down in Week 7. He was never given a timetable for return, but he's made enough progress the last two weeks that the Texans think he has a chance to contribute coming out of their bye.

He's set up extremely well against a Vikings defense that has struggled to find competent CB play from Xavier Rhodes (PFF's No. 107 ranked CB among 127 qualified corners), Mike Hughes (No. 77) and Trae Waynes (No. 98) this season. Fire up Cooper as a WR1 at home, where he's posted 5-58-1, 8-180-2, 8-76-0, 10-217-3, 4-20-0, 7-106-0, 6-106-1, 6-88-2, 11-226-1 and 5-106-0 lines since joining the Cowboys.

    Advice: JuJu dealt with a toe injury earlier in the season and may have re-aggravated the issue. Ryan Switzer would likely work as the offense's primary slot WR if Smith-Schuster is ultimately sidelined, but Diontae Johnson and James Washington would likely see the biggest target boosts. Still, every pass catcher involved in this offense holds a low floor with Jaylen Samuels (13 targets in Week 9) largely functioning as Mason Rudolph's primary target. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:04 pm

Overall, Beckham already has more games without at least eight targets (4) in 2019 than he did in any single season with the Giants from 2014-2018. His average of 8.3 targets per game is easily a career low, as Eli Manning and company fed OBJ at least double-digit targets in every season from 2014-2018. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:19 am

  • '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

  • 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
