Player Notes

  • Damien Harris (hamstring) limited Wednesday
    Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Harris has been a total non-factor in his rookie season. Injuries have hurt his chances, but the Patriots have made him a healthy scratch most weeks. It's possible that Harris eventually becomes an active player now that he's getting healthier, but there are zero fantasy expectations for Harris in 2019 with James White, Sony Michel, and Rex Burkhead in his way. Yesterday, 5:24 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Phillip Lindsay (foot, wrist) limited on Wed.
    Phillip Lindsay (foot, wrist) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Lindsay has been limited early in the week with a wrist injury on numerous occasions, but the second-year pro has played through his ailment. The foot injury is new, however, and worth monitoring the rest of the week, although it's still likely he plays on Sunday against the Bills. Lindsay set a new season-high for snaps (51) last week and is a candidate for 14-plus touches per game moving forward as an RB2. Yesterday, 4:12 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Adrian Peterson (toe) DNP Wednesday
    Adrian Peterson (toe) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Peterson has been receiving days off at practice, but it's a lingering issue that is worth keeping an eye on. The veteran will also be battling with Derrius Guice and possibly Chris Thompson for reps moving forward. Peterson has very little flex appeal against the Lions this week, assuming he returns to practice by Friday. Yesterday, 2:54 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Josh Jacobs (shoulder) sits out on Wednesday
    Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was limited for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Jacobs was limited last week too before handling 23 carries in Oakland's Week 11 win. He'll suit up and rank as a Top 10 option despite squaring off against the Jets' menacing d-line in his toughest test to date. Yesterday, 2:34 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • DET moves FB Bawden (knee) to injured reserve
    Lions placed FB Nick Bawden (knee) on injured reserve.

    Advice: Bawden was unable to return after exiting with a knee injury against Dallas. Isaac Nauta currently resides on Detroit's practice squad but is fully expected to replace Bawden as the team's starting fullback on Sunday. Austin Bryant was activated in a corresponding move. Yesterday, 12:48 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • James Conner (shoulder) sidelined at practice
    James Conner (shoulder) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: As was JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion/knee). Even with Diontae Johnson (concussion) somehow getting back on the field less than a week after suffering a frightening head shot (and bleeding from his ear minutes later), the Steelers project to start the most talent deficient personnel on offense all year. Jaylen Samuels will stick as a usage-based RB2 in PPR leagues for the matchup against Cincinnati's lackadaisical defense. Yesterday, 12:39 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Matt Breida (ankle) sidelined on Wednesday
    Matt Breida (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: George Kittle (ankle/knee), Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), and Deebo Samuel (shoulder) were also absent Wednesday. The Niners' entire offense is currently a touch-and-go situation as coach Kyle Shanahan said he believes all will "come down to the wire." Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will continue splitting carries if Breida's inactive. Yesterday, 12:34 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Chris Thompson (toe) limited on Wednesday
    Chris Thompson (toe) returned to practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first time Thompson's practiced since initially suffering his turf toe injury in Week 6. Time will tell on his availability against the Lions, but his presence would obviously throw a wrench into Derrius Guice's upside as Washington's default receiving-game back over the next six games. Guice will remain a PPR RB4 until Thompson officially returns to the field. Yesterday, 11:58 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Wilkins (ankle) removed from injury report
    Jordan Wilkins (ankle) was removed from the Colts' injury report Wednesday.

    Advice: Jonathan Williams rushed 13 times and out-carried Nyheim Hines 10 to 3 when Marlon Mack (hand, out) left in the third quarter against Jacksonville, but that of course occurred with Wilkins out the picture. With all three presumably available on Thursday, Williams and Wilkins are expected to split early-down carries with Hines jumping in on passing downs. The latter remains the more intriguing option for PPR leagues while Williams and Wilkins both slide in as RB3/4s against Houston. Yesterday, 11:25 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Devonta Freeman (foot) still out Wednesday
    Devonta Freeman (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Dan Quinn said Freeman was "trending in the right way" earlier this week, but he could still be looking at another missed game. Brian Hill was in on 60% of the snaps last week but disappointed with an ugly 15-30-0 rushing line and one catch. Game script would be in his favor at home this week as favorites over the Bucs. Yesterday, 8:42 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Jordan Howard (shoulder) limited Wednesday
    Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He's taking part in individual drills and has yet to be cleared for contact. Howard missed last week's loss to the Patriots and remains day to day. Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Jay Ajayi will handle the backfield reps if Howard is unable to go against the Seahawks this week. Yesterday, 8:02 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Alex Collins is healthy, no longer suspended
    Free agent RB Alex Collins is no longer suspended.

    Advice: Collins is also healthy and can begin trying out for teams. It's unclear if a team will look to add him this late into the season, but Collins is arguably better than some end of the roster backs right now if he's truly healed up from his broken leg. In 2017, Collins rushed for 973 yards and eight touchdowns before having a down 2018 season. Tuesday, 3:13 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Marrone pledges to re-establish Fournette
    Jaguars coach Doug Marrone believes Leonard Fournette touched the ball too few times in the team's Week 11 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Fournette tallied just 15 handles after averaging 26 over his previous six games. "I thought we needed to score points in a quicker fashion," Marrone said, correctly, alluding to poor game flow. "We need to be more balanced moving forward. Believe me, I know more than anyone that a strong rushing attack will open things up in the pass game." That's an incorrect #established mindset, but we digress. The Jags should have an easier time sticking with the run against the Titans, keeping Fournette as a mid-range, workload-based RB1. Tuesday, 2:05 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Chase Edmonds doesn't practice on Tuesday
    Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: It was a light session ahead of the Cardinals' bye week. The fact that Edmonds couldn't get in even a cursory appearance bodes poorly for his Week 13 status but next Wednesday will tell the tale. Trade acquisition Kenyan Drake has seized control of the Cardinals' backfield during Edmonds' absence, and the second-year pro would be unlikely to have standalone value upon his return. Tuesday, 10:21 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Benny Snell (knee) could practice this week
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he's "excited about the potential return" of Benny Snell (knee).

    Advice: Snell's health will be evaluated in practice throughout the week. The Steelers would welcome him back with open arms if healthy since the team's currently fighting through injuries to James Conner (shoulder), JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee), and Diontae Johnson (concussion) on offense. Jaylen Samuels would still work ahead of Snell as the Steelers' clear-cut No. 1 back if both are active. Tuesday, 9:18 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Report: Walton arrested for domestic violence
    Fox Sports' Andy Slater reports Mark Walton was arrested Tuesday morning.

    Advice: Walton is accused of punching his five-week pregnant girlfriend "several times in the face and head" 24 hours after discovering he was the father. He was arrested Tuesday morning in South Florida and promptly waived by the Dolphins. It's Walton's fourth arrest in the past year following his three violations this offseason. It would obviously spell the end of Walton's career if the allegations are proved to be true. Tuesday, 9:14 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Darrel Williams scores on 12 touches in win
    Darrel Williams rushed 11 times for 35 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 11 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Williams also caught 2-of-3 targets for eight yards, pacing the Chiefs backfield with 13 touches to LeSean McCoy's 11. Damien Williams exited in the second quarter with a ribs injury after rushing four times for seven scoreless yards. Both Darrel and Shady scored rushing touchdowns. Darrel is probably coach Andy Reid's most trusted back, but he is the least skilled despite being able to do everything. This backfield is a weekly mess and will continue to be after the bye when the Raiders come to Arrowhead in Week 13. Monday, 9:09 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Melvin Gordon totals 90 yards in loss to K.C.
    Melvin Gordon rushed 14 times for 69 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 21 yards in the Chargers' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs Monday night.

    Advice: Gordon handled just four carries after halftime and dropped his two fourth-quarter targets. He was chewing up yards, along with Austin Ekeler (132 total yards), but the Chargers went extremely pass-happy after the break for some reason despite being in striking distance. Gordon out-carried Ekeler 14-5, but Ekeler led the team with 12 targets. Both backs are strong weekly fantasy plays and get the Broncos in Denver after L.A.'s Week 12 bye. Monday, 9:04 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • McCoy totals 57 yards, TD in return to lineup
    LeSean McCoy rushed seven times for 29 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 11 win over the Chargers Monday night, adding four catches for 28 yards on six targets.

    Advice: After being a healthy scratch last week, McCoy was outplaying Damien Williams before Damien left the game in the second quarter with a ribs injury. McCoy scored the lone touchdown of the first half on a six-yard run. But Darrel Williams actually led the backfield with 13 touches, seeing all the work late in the fourth quarter after McCoy left to be evaluated for a concussion. This backfield remains a weekly headache with three backs always vying for snaps. McCoy looked refreshed, however, after the week off and now gets the bye to clear the concussion ahead of a Week 13 date with the Raiders. Monday, 9:01 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ekeler totals 132 yards with 8-108 receiving
    Austin Ekeler rushed five times for 24 yards and caught 8-of-12 targets for 108 yards in the Chargers' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs Monday night.

    Advice: The Chargers were moving the ball at will in the first half, and Ekeler was a big part of it with 120 yards on 10 touches at the break. He was out-carried 14-5 by Melvin Gordon, but Ekeler tied Keenan Allen for the team lead in targets and was a major part of the offense. Even with Gordon back and playing well, Ekeler remains a key cog and should be treated as an every-week RB2 with upside in PPR formats. He gets the Broncos after the Week 12 bye. Monday, 8:57 pm
