  • 49ers activate reserve RB Jeff Wilson from IR
    49ers activated RB Jeff Wilson (ankle) from injured reserve. 

    Advice: The 49ers have also activated Raheem Mostert (ankle), claiming they are unsure if he will suit up against the Rams. We would expect Mostert to play, leaving him as the No. 1 and Jerick McKinnon as the No. 2 with Tevin Coleman (knee) still sidelined. That means Wilson could mix in for some short-yardage/goal-line work as the No. 3 back, but there is no path to Week 12 fantasy relevance outside of a random touchdown plunge.   Rotoworld.com Today, 4:29 pm

  • Practice Squad WR Hinton could be Broncos' QB
    Broncos practice squad WR Kendall Hinton "will play plenty" of QB in Week 12 against the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Advice: Hinton played quarterback at Wake Forest for four seasons before switching to wide receiver during his senior year. His freshman season included a 52.5% completion rate while throwing four touchdowns and five interceptions. The Broncos offense could be unwatchable on Sunday, and it likely will greatly impact the production of Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant and others. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:45 pm

  • DEN may use RB Freeman or practice squad WR at QB
    NBC Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos may start RB Royce Freeman or practice squad WR Kendall Hinton at quarterback against the Saints after Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were forced to quarantine following Jeff Driskel's positive COVID-19 test. 

    Advice: None of Lock, Rypien or Bortles are eligible to play, creating a farcical situation for Denver under center. Freeman could do some wildcat-ing, but Hinton was a quarterback at Wake Forest before injuries necessitated a switch to wideout. Either option will be purely disastrous vs. the NFC-leading Saints. The NFL needs to postpone this game, for the safety of the Broncos and the competitive integrity of the NFC playoff race.  Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 pm

  • All 3 Broncos QBs ruled ineligible to play Sunday
    All three QBs on the Broncos' roster, including Drew Lock, have been ruled ineligible to play in Week 12 against the Saints.

    Advice: Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were sent on home Saturday for contact tracing purposes after the league reviewed practice footage and deemed the trio were not wearing masks around COVID positive Jeff Driskel. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos will not forfeit, despite not having a quarterback on their active roster or practice squad. Royce Freeman has been tagged as the team's "emergency quarterback," but it will be fascinating to see how the team calls Sunday's game. Taysom Hill on one side, and a heavy dose of Melvin Gordon III and Philip Lindsay on the other. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:06 pm

  • Lock, other DEN QBs sent home for contact tracing
    The NFL sent home Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles on Saturday due to contact tracing concerns.

    Advice: The contact tracing is in relation to a positive test for Jeff Driskel, meaning all four QBs are not currently allowed at the Broncos' facility, just one day before playing the Saints. It is notable that the league made this decision after reviewing footage, not the Broncos. As of now it is unclear if any of the three will be allowed to play on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm

    Advice: Lift off, hopefully. Ekeler returned to practice this week and suggested he would return against the Bills. Coach Anthony Lynn, however, did not seem as confident when speaking with reporters a few days ago. Still, this is a clear step in the right direction. If Ekeler avoids the inactives list he should be in line for at least 12 touches in a game with a 52.5 total, if not more. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:29 pm

    Advice: Carson finally returns, and in a matchup where the Seahawks are favored by 5.5 points. We have seen the Seahawks use DeeJay Dallas, Alex Collins and Carlos Hyde as lead backs, so expect Carson to hover near 20 touches in his first game back since Week 7. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm

Brown has recorded 29 catches for 386 yards and two touchdowns this season, including 19 combined targets over the last two games.

  • Tua (thumb) downgraded to doubtful vs Jets
    Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 12's game against the Jets.

    Advice: Ryan Fitzpatrick certainly will draw the start in an excellent matchup. Tua had been limited all week after jamming his thumb on a helmet, and the team seemingly is siding with caution due to their confidence in backup Fitzpatrick, a player who replaced Tagovailoa last weekend for "performance" reasons. With the Dolphins in the thick of the playoff race, the door for Fitzpatrick to claim the starting job might be wider than initially appeared.

    Advice: Conner is waiting for a second test on Sunday to confirm the results. Barring a false positive, he'll be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and miss Week 12. The Steelers will turn to a committee of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland to replace Conner. With a short turnaround in Week 13, Conner may be looking at a multi-game absence.  It's possible the NFL cancels this week's Steelers-Ravens matchup all together. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:46 am

    Advice: McCaffrey practiced on a limited basis this week and was listed as questionable, but he was always a longshot to play. Mike Davis will make another start and is an RB2 against a Vikings defense that's allowing 122 rushing yards per game. The Panthers will give McCaffrey the next two weeks to get his shoulder healthy.  He should be ready to return in Week 14 following the Panthers' bye. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:32 am

    Advice: Pederson said there's been "no setback" with Ertz, but he's unlikely to play after it looked like he was trending in right direction. It'll be another week of Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers against Seattle's league worst secondary. The Eagles are hoping to get Ertz back for Week 13.  Rotoworld.com Today, 7:35 am

    Chris Carson (foot) was limited in practice on Friday.

    Advice: Carson is tentatively on track to play on Monday Night Football, but coach Pete Carroll is the most optimistic person on the planet. It makes reading into his injury press conferences a worthless endeavor. All eyes are on Saturday's final injury report.

    Advice: Even so, Lynn didn't sound too confident that Ekeler would be available. With Kalen Ballage (ankle/calf) also questionable, Josh Kelley, who has since been thrown into coach Anthony Lynn's doghouse, and Troymaine Pope would handle the load if both Ekeler and the latter can't go. Pope would be the preferred player among those two since he's been trusted with the lion's share of touches more recently than Kelley.

    Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Jets. 

    Advice: Tagovailoa got in some limited practice sessions this week and would seem likely to get the green light for Sunday. If he's inactive, Ryan Fitzpatrick would get the start and become a QB2 play with upside.

    Advice: Panthers head coach Mike Rhule said he's "pessimistic" CMC will be available against Minnesota. Mike Davis should get yet another game as the team's workhorse back. His target share had dwindled of late, but his share of the team's rushing attempts has remained steady in McCaffrey's absence.

    John Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Chargers.

    Advice: Brown wasn't healthy enough to practice coming off a Week 11 bye. He's battled knee and ankle injuries all year and will now miss his third game. With Brown out, Gabriel Davis will see a larger target share in a projected shootout with the Chargers. Davis had a 97% snap rate and 11 targets in the two games Brown missed earlier this season.

    Chris Carson (foot) was limited in practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Always optimistic, coach Pete Carroll suggested that Carson would be ready for Week 12, but it's not a lock until Carson has a full practice. It's possible that he is upgraded on Friday or just plays through a limited tag. Tomorrow's injury report will clear things up because relying on Carroll's press conferences is bad process. Carlos Hyde would be the lead back if Carson can't suit up. Carson would be a quality RB1/2 whenever available. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:41 pm

    Advice: Tua's been limited for both of Miami's practices mid-week but is still expected to suit up on Sunday; coach Brian Flores confirmed as much, stating the rookie "should" be able to play.

    Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said Tua Tagovailoa "got banged up a little bit" last week but should be able to play this week against the Jets. 

    Advice: Tagovailoa was limited at Wednesday's practice with a thumb injury. Flores doesn't seem concerned about the rookie for this week's tasty matchup against a Jets defense allowing a league-high 72.9 percent completion rate. Tagovailoa is a mid-range QB2 with limited upside in a game the Dolphins should dominate.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:00 am

    Advice: It officially opens Ekeler's 21-day window to be activated from injured reserve. That may not happen this week for the Bills game, but Ekeler did say a couple weeks back he was getting close to a return. Once Ekeler is back, he'll be an RB2 with upside and knocks guys like Kalen Ballage, Justin Jackson (knee, I.R.), and/or Joshua Kelley down the depth chart to compete for touches behind Ekeler.

    Advice: The Eagles are "optimistic" Ertz can return after spending the last five weeks on IR. Ertz was designated to return last week but didn't play against the Browns. He'll have an extra day to get cleared with Philly playing on Monday night in Week 12. Getting Ertz back would cut into Dallas Goedert's snaps and target share. Pederson suggested the Eagles could "mix in more 13 personnel" with Ertz and Richard Rodgers going forward.

Coach Kyle Shanahan has been optimistic that Mostert and Tevin Coleman (knee) can return this week against the Rams. If that's the case, Wilson probably won't be officially activated.

Ekeler hinted at a return ahead of Week 10 but has not been heard from since. The Chargers' backfield has been a revolving door during Ekeler's absence, with journeyman Kalen Ballage taking the lead of late. Ekeler has not played since Week 4.

Mike Davis, who handled 21 of Carolina's 29 backfield touches on Sunday, will continue starting in the interim.

    Advice: Head coach Brian Flores pulled no punches in explaining why he yanked Tua for Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter. But Flores was clear there would be no wholesale changes to the team's QB spot in Week 12. Fitzpatrick after the team's loss to Denver said there would be "no controversy. This is his team. He's going to lead this team and continue to lead the team." The rookie completed 11-of-20 passes for 83 yards and one touchdown while taking six sacks against the Broncos.

  • Jonathan Taylor has 114 total yards on your bench
    Jonathan Taylor rushed 22 times for 90 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Packers.

    Advice: Taylor had some moments very early in the year, but this was his best all-around game since leaving Wisconsin. He dominated the backfield with 26 total touches. Nyheim Hines had 10 opportunities. Jordan Wilkins had 5. It's a sign of life for Taylor's RB2 chances down the stretch, but the coaching staff has been hellbent on riding the hot hand on a week by week basis. The Colts have the potential to be a well-orchestrated offense down the stretch, and Taylor has theoretical upside despite busting through the first nine weeks of the season.

    Drew Lock completed 18-of-30 passes for 270 scoreless yards and one interception in the Broncos' 20-13, Week 11 win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: Playing through a ribs issue, Lock did enough to get the Broncos in scoring range before Melvin Gordon accounted for both touchdowns, scoring from one and 20 yards out. Lock also had 61 of his yards come on the final meaningless last-play heave to Tim Patrick to run out the clock. Lock has just seven touchdown passes on the season to go with 11 interceptions.

  • Tua yanked in Q4 with just 83 yards vs. Broncos
    Tua Tagovailoa was benched in the fourth quarter of the Dolphins' Week 11 game against the Broncos after completing 11-of-20 passes for 83 yards and one touchdown.

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

  • James Conner totals 99 yards versus the Jaguars
    James Conner rushed 13 times for 89 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Once again, Conner disappointed as a massive favorite over a lesser opponent. He has been held under 100 yards and has not scored in that exact spot in each of the past three weeks. What is most concerning is that the Steelers gave Benny Snell seven carries, one of which was a goal line opportunity that Snell scored on. Conner added 10 yards on three targets. Pittsburgh has leaned into a pass-heavy approach in recent weeks which has also hampered Conner's fantasy output. Conner looks more like an upside RB2 than the weekly RB1 he was to start the season.

    Advice: Lock, who practiced Thursday and Friday, should be able to play through his rib injury. 9 News' Mike Klis said Lock was "shuffling, rolling, throwing with touch, humming fastballs" at Friday's practice. He has an awful matchup against a swarming Miami defense that largely stopped Justin Herbert last week. Lock is only usable in superflex formats this week with the hope for some rushing upside. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:54 am

  • Adam Humphries (concussion) out vs. Ravens
    Adam Humphries (concussion) is out for Week 11 against the Ravens. 

    Advice: Humphries was always a long shot after missing the first couple practices of the week. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Humphries is still working his way through the league's concussion protocol three weeks after suffering a head injury against the Bengals. Humphries out could mean a minor bump for TE Anthony Firkser against Baltimore.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 am

  • Pederson: Ertz (ankle) needs 'a little more time'
    Speaking Friday, coach Doug Pederson said Zach Ertz (ankle, I.R.) "probably needs a little more time" and is unlikely to be activated in time for Week 11 against the Browns.

    Advice: The Eagles opened Ertz's 21-day window to be activated earlier this week, but he isn't going to get the green light for this Sunday, locking Dallas Goedert into an every-down role as a top-five fantasy TE1. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:55 am

  • Carroll says Chris Carson will return for Week 12
    Speaking after Thursday's win over the Cardinals, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson (foot) will return for Week 12 against the Eagles. 

    Advice: Pete Carroll says a lot of things, but this one is believable after Carson seemed reasonably close to suiting up this week. He hasn't played since Week 7. The Seahawks got Carlos Hyde back against the Cardinals and he nearly posted 100 yards from scrimmage. Carson's power running has been a badly missing element during the Seahawks' recent shaky play. If he indeed suits up for Week 12, he will find himself in the RB10-16 range vs. an Eagles defense that has not been as tough against the run as usual this season.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:22 pm

  • Carson, Travis Homer officially out vs. Arizona
    Chris Carson (foot) is inactive for Week 11 against the Cardinals. 

    Advice: As is Travis Homer (hand). With Alex Collins not promoted this week, it will be DeeJay Dallas and Bo Scarbrough behind a returning Carlos Hyde. It would appear Hyde is being set up for a bell-cow role in a contest with a 57 over/under. Hopefully Carson will finally be ready to return for Week 12 against the Eagles. He has not played since Week 7. Joining Carson and Homer on the shelf are C Ethan Pocic, CB Shaquill Griffin, OG Jordan Simmons, TE Colby Parkinson and DE Jonathan Bullard.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:53 pm

  • Adam Humphries (concussion) still not practicing
    Adam Humphries (concussion) did not practice Thursday. 

    Advice: He's looking unlikely to play this week against the Ravens. Humphries hasn't practiced since taking a vicious shot to the head in Week 8 against the Bengals.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:43 pm

  • Broncos QB Drew Lock (ribs) practicing Thursday
    Broncos QB Drew Lock (ribs) is practicing Thursday. 

    Advice: The team warned that Lock would be limited early in the week with the hope he could practice more on Friday. He told media he received "a rep here and a rep there" for Thursday. He's dealing with a muscle strain and bruising near his ribs. Lock appears on track to play this week against Miami. He's nothing more than a low-end superflex option in a bad matchup.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:43 am

  • Report: Chris Carson unlikely to return this week
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Carson (foot) is "unlikely to play" in Week 11 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Coach Pete Carroll called Carson "real close" and plans to take his status to game-time. Carson is nearing his return from a mid-foot sprain, but a short week with limited practice may be enough to hold him out. Carlos Hyde will start and see the majority of carries if Carson doesn't get cleared. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:28 pm

  • Chris Carson listed questionable vs Cardinals
    Chris Carson (foot) is questionable for Week 11 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Carson returned to practice on a limited basis this week. He's a game-time decision for Thursday night. The Seahawks will get back Carlos Hyde (hamstring), who was taken off the injury report. Travis Homer (wrist, knee) is listed as doubtful. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:49 pm

  • Christian McCaffrey expected to miss Week 11
    Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Lions.

    Advice: This was expected for McCaffrey, who needs another week to recover from an AC Joint sprain. It's the eighth game he'll miss this season. The Panthers will again turn to Mike Davis as their lead back with McCaffrey sidelined. Davis is a plug-in RB2 against a Lions defense that's allowing the third-most rushing yards in the league.

  • Christian McCaffrey not expected to practice
    Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) isn't expected to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The Panthers haven't ruled out McCaffrey for Week 11 but he's likely looking at a multi-game absence. There's more optimism for Teddy Bridgewater (knee) playing this week. Mike Davis will make another spot start if McCaffrey sits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:14 am

  • Drew Lock (ribs) hoping to play through injury
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Drew Lock (ribs) is "going to try and play" this week.

    Advice: Lock isn't expected to practice until late in the week. He's "feeling a lot better" and there's hope he won't miss any time. Lock likely won't be 100 percent, but he's trending toward playing Week 11 against the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:46 am
