Kenny Stills

Kenny Stills

WR | FA

Time over in NOLA

The Saints waived Stills on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Though the Saints will be without one of their top three wideouts in Deonte Harris for the next three games after his suspension was upheld by the NFL, Stills won't be given the opportunity to try and replace him. The 29-year-old already seemed to fall behind Ty Montgomery and Lil'Jordan Humphrey in the pecking order behind the Saints' starting receivers (Harris, Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway), as Stills ranked sixth among the position group in snaps in last week's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys. Stills concludes his second stint in New Orleans with five receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets over 10 appearances.

Austin Walter

RB | NYJ

Signed to 53-man roster

New York signed Walter off its practice squad Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

After top back Michael Carter (ankle) landed on injured reserve, Walter was elevated from the practice squad ahead of both of the Jets' last two games to bolster the team's depth at the position. Though Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson have worked ahead of him in both contests, Walter was active ahead of La'Mical Perine as the No. 3 back in Weeks 12 and 13 and combined for 10 carries for 40 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for nine yards. He'll now have a permanent home on the 53-man roster, filling the spot that belonged to Corey Davis (groin) before he was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Eric Kendricks

Eric Kendricks

LB | MIN

Looks ready to play Thursday

Kendricks (biceps) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

Kendricks thus looks on track to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Steelers, after the biceps injury caused him to miss his first contest of the season Week 13 in the Vikings' 29-27 loss to the Lions. When healthy this season, Kendricks has been one of the top IDP producers at linebacker. He's averaging 9.9 tackles per game and has tallied up four sacks, two interceptions and one fumble recovery.

Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook

RB | MIN

Turns in limited practice

Cook (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant during Tuesday's practice.

While the extent of Cook's activity in practice isn't fully known, the Vikings are listing him as a limited participant for the first time since he suffered a dislocated left shoulder in the team's Week 12 loss to the 49ers. Shortly after Cook was diagnosed with the injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that he was expected to remain out until the team's Week 15 game against the Bears, but the running back looks as though he may have a chance to make it back for this week's Thursday night matchup with the Steelers. Before the Vikings make a call on his status one way or the other, the team will wait and see if Cook is able to take a step forward in his practice activity Wednesday. Alexander Mattison would be in line for a high-volume role out of the Minnesota backfield for the second straight game if Cook is ultimately ruled out against Pittsburgh.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

Goes on IR

Davis (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Davis' move to IR was merely procedural after head coach Robert Saleh confirmed Monday that the wideout would require season-ending core-muscle surgery after aggravating a groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. The 26-year-old wraps up his first season with Gang Green with 34 receptions for 492 yards and four touchdowns over nine games.

Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool

WR | PIT

Practices fully Tuesday

Claypool (toe) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Claypool's ability to take every rep Tuesday suggests that his appearance on Monday's estimated practice report as a non-participant was mainly for maintenance purposes. Since missing the Steelers' Week 10 tie with the Lions due to a toe injury, Claypool has suited up for each of Pittsburgh's last three contests while producing a 10-227-0 receiving line on 20 targets. He looks like he'll be ready to pick up another start Thursday against the Vikings.

Puts in full practice

Roethlisberger (shoulder/pectoral) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Considering he had played through the two injuries for multiple weeks, Roethlisberger never looked to be at any real risk of sitting out Thursday's game against the Vikings, despite being listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report. According to Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com, Roethlisberger acknowledged Tuesday that his right shoulder is what is giving him the most trouble at this stage of the season, but he's expected to continue playing through the issue as Pittsburgh looks to chase down a playoff spot.

Blake Jarwin

Blake Jarwin

TE | DAL

Moves back to IR

Jarwin (hip) reverted to injured reserve after the Cowboys restored him from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Jarwin's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 on Nov. 26 didn't have any bearing on his availability for the Cowboys, as he was already slated to miss time with the hip injury that resulted in his placement on IR on Nov. 6. Though Jarwin is eligible to resume practicing with the Cowboys at any point, the Cowboys have yet to provide an update on when he'll be able to do so. Sean McKeon should continue to serve as the main backup to No. 1 tight end Dalton Schultz in the meantime.

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

QB | GB

Injured toe improving after bye

Rodgers said Tuesday during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" that his fractured left pinkie toe showed improvement during the Packers' Week 13 bye, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "The biggest key is rest. I wish there was another one of these [bye] weeks so I could get 14-to-21 great days without doing anything, but the toe is improving," Rodgers said.

Rodgers' comments about his improving health offers some reassurance that he'll be in less pain during the Packers' Week 14 game against the Bears, but as he acknowledges, the toe injury likely won't be resolved completely until he receives some extended rest. Even so, Rodgers opted to forgo surgery during the bye week to address the injury, hoping that he'll be able to play through the issue for the rest of the regular season and playoffs before likely going under the knife at some point over the offseason. Even while presumably playing with his toe at less than 100 percent following his return from an absence Week 9 due to a positive COVID-19 toe, Rodgers performed at a high level over the Packers' final three games prior to the bye week. Between wins over the Seahawks and Rams and a road loss to the Vikings, Rodgers completed 64.3 percent of his throws for 984 yards and a 6:1 TD:INT while contributing 29 yards and another score on the ground.

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts

QB | PHI

Will retain starting gig

Hurts (ankle) will be the team's starting quarterback if healthy following a Week 14 bye, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Hurts was sidelined for the Eagles' Week 13 win over the Jets due to a left high-ankle sprain, which he sustained in Philadelphia's 13-7 loss to the Giants in Week 12. Though fill-in starter Gardner Minshew was highly efficient (20-for-25 for 242 yards and two touchdowns) in his stead, Hurts' overall body of work looks like it'll be enough for him to maintain the top spot on the depth chart if he's deemed ready to go for the Eagles' Week 15 game against Washington. While Minshew likely amounts to an upgrade in terms of accuracy, Hurts' proficiency as a runner -- he's totaled 695 rushing yards and eight scores on the ground through 12 games -- makes him the higher-ceiling fantasy option of the two.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Misses practice, likely out Week 14

Thielen (ankle) didn't participate in the open portion of Tuesday's practice and is expected to be sidelined for Thursday's game against the Steelers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

While the Vikings haven't officially ruled Thielen out for Week 14, head coach Mike Zimmer told Tomasson prior to practice that the wideout would only return from his high-ankle sprain at some point this season. The fact that Zimmer is talking about Thielen's status in that manner implies that he's unlikely to suit up Thursday, so expect the receiver to officially receive the "out" tag at the conclusion of Wednesday's practice. His projected absence should clear the way for K.J. Osborn and Dede Westbrook to handle more reps alongside No. 1 receiver Justin Jefferson.

Joshua Palmer

WR | LAC

Can't gather only target

Palmer failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.

Palmer saw a slip in snap time as Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton took charge. The rookie's lone target was simply a dropped deep pass which slipped off his hands and somehow landed in the cornerback's arm for Justin Herbert's lone interception. In the previous five games, the fourth-string wide receiver had at least one catch with 17-plus yards, but with a significant lead for most of the afternoon Palmer wasn't needed. Facing the Giants in the upcoming week, the rookie might have an impact with Keenan Allen placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

David Njoku

David Njoku

TE | CLE

Moves to reserve/COVID-19 list

The Browns plan to place Njoku on the reserve/COVID-19 later Tuesday, and his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens is in question, Kimberley A. Martin of ESPN reports.

Cleveland hasn't revealed whether Njoku has tested positive following its Week 13 bye or if he will be placed on the list as a close contact of an infected person. The reason behind his placement on the list -- as well as his vaccination status -- will be determining factors in whether he'll have a realistic shot at playing this weekend. Before the Browns went on bye, Njoku drew at least four targets in each of the team's last three games, cobbling together a 6-66-1 receiving line over that span.

Dawson Knox

Dawson Knox

TE | BUF

Rough showing in primetime

Knox caught just two of six targets for 14 yards in Monday's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Knox had issues with the dropsies in his first two NFL seasons, but he's been much more reliable in his breakout 2021 season. However, his performance was frustrating to watch for Bills Mafia on Monday, as it was clear he was supposed to be a key part to the game plan on a blustery night that yielded nothing but a run-oriented attack and short passes. Knox took at least one key penalty and also couldn't haul in catchable balls. On a normal night for the tight end, something like a 5-55-1line would have easily happened, but the reality was Knox's worst performance of the season in a disappointing loss for his team. Based on his track record in 2021, Knox should be much better in what could be a high-scoring affair Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Darrel Williams

Darrel Williams

RB | KC

Makes most of eight touches

Williams rushed five times for 20 yards and added three catches for 60 yards on three targets Sunday against the Broncos.

While Williams saw his offensive snap count dip yet again, he did take advantage of the opportunities he got to turn in 80 total yards on the day. He did nearly split the work with Clyde Edwards-Helaire evenly, but that resulted in just 26 offensive snaps on the day. As long as both backs remain healthy, the backfield timeshare figures to continue.

Jonnu Smith

Jonnu Smith

TE | NE

Just one catch vs. Bills

Smith secured his only target for 12 yards during Monday's 14-10 win over Buffalo.

Smith also had one carry for minus one yards. Harsh weather and a run-first game plan that asked Mac Jones to attempt just three passes limited all New England's pass catches, but after a Week 14 bye, the team stands to deploy a more traditional offense on the road against Indianapolis.

Brandon Bolden

Brandon Bolden

RB | NE

Handles four carries

Bolden had four carries for 28 yards during Monday's 14-10 win over the Bills. He also secured his only target for seven yards.

Bolden benefited from an unusual game script in extremely windy conditions, but he still worked behind both Damien Harris (hamstring) and Rhamondre Stevenson. Additionally, Bolden handled a season-high 86 percent of snaps on special teams. The Patriots will next take on the Colts on Dec. 18, after a Week 14 bye, at which point Bolden stands to have returned to his usual change-of-pace role.

Nelson Agholor

Nelson Agholor

WR | NE

No catches Monday night

Agholor failed to secure his only target during Monday's 14-10 win over the Bills. He had one carry for six yards.

Agholor was held without many opportunities during Monday's abnormally windy contest, which saw Mac Jones attempt just three passes while New England logged a total of 46 rush attempts. After taking a Week 14 bye, the Patriots' offense stands to return to a degree of normalcy during a road matchup against the Colts.

Jared Cook

Jared Cook

TE | LAC

Tallies 29 yards in win

Cook caught three of four targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.

Cook was limited to his fourth straight game with under 30 receiving yards and has managed only three above that threshold all season. The Chargers have relied on Austin Ekeler and other options to cover goal-line opportunities instead of forcing the ball to Cook which has hampered his fantasy value significantly. Drops have also been an issue for Cook all season (61 percent catch rate), and as a result, the younger backup Donald Parham has seen additional usage. With a low receiving floor, and a decreasing share of red-zone targets, Cook remains a touchdown-dependent, low-upside option at tight end.

Kendrick Bourne

Kendrick Bourne

WR | NE

No targets in windy win

Bourne was not targeted during Monday's 14-10 win over the Bills. He did have one carry for three yards.

Bourne posted a two-touchdown, 61-yard performance against the Titans prior to being shut out against Buffalo, a game which was played in extremely windy conditions and saw the Patriots offense lean on the running game almost every snap. In fact, quarterback Mac Jones attempted just three passes in the divisional win. After the team's Week 14 bye, Bourne will get a chance to bounce back on the road in Indianapolis.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

QB | WAS

Opts for arthroscopic surgery

Fitzpatrick is scheduled to undergo a season-ending arthroscopic procedure on his right hip this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Three weeks ago, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reported that Fitzpatrick was unlikely to play again in 2021 due to the slow progress he was making in his recovery from the partial dislocation of his right hip he suffered Week 1, but his impending arthroscopic surgery makes his shutdown official. Fitzpatrick is hoping the surgery will allow him to return to full health by the early part of the offseason, but it's unclear if the 39-year-old will look to sign with another team or if he'll head into retirement. Taylor Heinicke has performed well enough for Washington this season, so the Football Team may not have any interest in bringing Fitzpatrick back for a second season -- at least not as a starter.

Tim Patrick

Tim Patrick

WR | DEN

Quiet in loss

Patrick caught one of five targets for nine yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs.

Patrick struggled to get anything going against the Chiefs, which is not surprising as the No. 3 wideout in a below average passing offense. He did, however, play the second most offensive snaps of any Denver wide receiver. Patrick's 67 snaps were just one behind Courtland Sutton, but 11 snaps ahead of Jerry Jeudy. Even with his high snap percentage, the 6-foot-4, 212-pounder is difficult to trust for fantasy purposes barring an injury to either Sutton or Jeudy. Patrick and the Broncos offense will face the Lions in Week 14.

Courtland Sutton

Courtland Sutton

WR | DEN

Catches two passes in loss

Sutton caught two of six targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs.

Sutton continued his streak of disappointing performances, making it four straight games with under 30 receiving yards. His six targets tied fellow wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, but it was running back Javonte Williams who saw a team-high nine targets against the Chiefs. The 26-year-old wideout is struggling to produce for fantasy, and he has become very difficult to trust each week with the Broncos' continued struggles through the air. Week 14 presents a possible bounce-back spot for Sutton, as the Broncos will host the Lions.

Cole Beasley

Cole Beasley

WR | BUF

Poor game in poor conditions

Beasley caught one of three targets for 11 yards in Monday's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Quarterback Josh Allen only completed 15 passes in the game, and that might be considered an accomplishment given the terrible weather and the fact that opposing QB Mac Jones only completed two throws. Beasley was open a few times in key moments, but between the howling wind and Josh Allen either not finding him or being able to make a good throw, Beasley was limited to his second worst output of the season. Expect a more productive performance from the entire Buffalo offense in the Week 14 matchup with the Buccaneers, a game that could turn into a high-scoring affair.

Hunter Henry

Hunter Henry

TE | NE

No targets Monday

Henry was not targeted in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.

Henry's first game without a target as a Patriots came on a most unusual night, with the team throwing merely three times due to extremely windy conditions. Although fellow tight end Jonnu Smith was fortunate enough to haul in one of those attempts for a 12-yard gain, Henry was restricted to work as a blocker. While New England's game plan was sufficient to get the win Monday, Henry may look forward to a more conventional scheme once the team returns from its bye week to face the Colts in Week 15.

Jakobi Meyers

Jakobi Meyers

WR | NE

Not targeted Monday

Meyers was not targeted in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.

Meyers was not alone among target-less Patriots, as the team threw the ball merely three times amid extremely windy conditions. With both completions going to non-wideouts, it was an unusual outing for New England's receiving corps, yet still effective enough to win. Meyers and company will now embark on their bye week before returning the play the Colts in Week 15.

Devin Singletary

Devin Singletary

RB | BUF

Rushes 10 times

Singletary rushed 10 times for 36 yards in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Singletary led Buffalo's backfield in carries, but teammate Zack Moss returned to the lineup to match him in overall touches. Although Singletary managed three more scrimmage yards than Moss -- and both outperformed Matt Breida's eight yards on two touches -- none of the Bills' tailbacks were particularly effective amid predictable running conditions. While it was good to see Singletary lead the charge Monday, Buffalo's usual committee approach makes it hard to rely too much on him going into Week 14's matchup versus the Buccaneers.

Rondale Moore

Rondale Moore

WR | ARI

Compiles four touches Sunday

Moore recorded one catch (on two targets) for eight yards, three carries for two yards, three kick returns for 71 yards and one punt return for no yards during Sunday's 33-22 win in Chicago.

On a day in which Kyler Murray aired it out just 15 times, Cardinals receivers were behind the eight ball when it came to making a mark in the box score. Per usual, Moore got opportunities outside of the passing game, but none of them were fruitful. It was a disappointing result after the rookie second-round pick racked up a career-best 11 receptions in the team's last game Week 11 at Seattle. Moore will attempt to get back in track next Monday against the Rams.

Zack Moss

Zack Moss

RB | BUF

Gets eight carries

Moss rushed eight times for 21 yards and caught two of three targets for 12 yards in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Moss returned after being a healthy scratch in Week 12 and ultimately tied Devin Singletary to lead Buffalo's backfield with 10 touches while managing just three fewer scrimmage yards than his teammate. Although his overall production still wasn't anything special, very windy conditions Monday resulted in New England loading up on the running game, restricting space for Moss to maneuver. On the bright side, after his Thanksgiving absence, Moss seems to be back in the rotation alongside Singletary and Matt Breida as Buffalo now prepares for a matchup in Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Christian Kirk

Christian Kirk

WR | ARI

Another paltry showing

Kirk caught one of three targets for a season-low four yards during Sunday's 33-22 win at Chicago.

With Kyler Murray only attempting 15 passes in his first game action since Week 8, there wasn't much volume to go around for Cardinals receivers Sunday. Kirk actually paced the team in targets, and eight different players recorded one or two receptions, but only DeAndre Hopkins and James Conner were able to take advantage with TDs. Looking ahead to Week 14, Kirk will look to bounce back against a Rams defense that also contained him to one catch back in Week 4.

Gabriel Davis

Gabriel Davis

WR | BUF

Scores in defeat

Davis caught two of four targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Davis opened the scoring for Buffalo with a 14-yard touchdown during the first quarter, marking his third end-zone trip of the campaign. He also made another catch later on, meeting his usual yardage standard despite wind gusts of around 50 miles per hour heavily restricting the passing game. Davis will now hope his personal momentum from scoring Monday will translate into another positive showing versus the Buccaneers in Week 14.

Shoulders rushing workload

Stevenson rushed 24 times for 78 yards in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.

Stevenson was heavily relied upon amid extremely windy conditions as well as an injury to teammate Damien Harris (hamstring). Although Harris still managed 10 carries for 111 yards and a score, he was limited to just one handoff in the second half, clearing the way for Stevenson to lead the backfield. Despite consistently facing stacked defensive fronts with the Pats throwing merely three times all game, hurting his efficiency, Stevenson again showed impressive glimpses of his athletic, physical running style, helping New England win in spite of Monday's unusual circumstances. While now entering the bye week will give Harris some time to heal, if he's restricted once the team reconvenes ahead of Week 15's matchup versus the Colts, Stevenson would figure to remain the chief beneficiary.

Mac Jones

Mac Jones

QB | NE

Throws three passes in win

Jones completed two of three passes for 19 yards in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.

Jones entered Monday coming off a career-high 310 passing yards last week, but extremely windy conditions in Buffalo resulted in New England running the ball almost every play. In fact, Jones began the fourth quarter with just one attempt, then threw passes on back-to-back plays on the Pats' second-last drive. Despite being on handoff duty basically all night, Jones did enough to help clinch a seventh straight victory, sending him into the bye week on a positive note. He'll surely assume a more conventional quarterback role playing indoors versus the Colts in Week 15.

Stefon Diggs

Stefon Diggs

WR | BUF

Makes four catches

Diggs caught four of seven targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots.

Diggs led the Bills in all major receiving categories despite extreme wind heavily restricting the passing game. While Diggs managed a game-long catch of 26 yards, he also narrowly missed out on a deeper touchdown during the third quarter. Given the bad weather as well as a tough matchup versus the Patriots, his overall performance was commendable, but warmer conditions could prove more favorable in Week 14 versus the Buccaneers.

Josh Allen

Josh Allen

QB | BUF

Throws touchdown despite wind

Allen completed 15 of 30 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots. He also rushed six times for 39 yards but lost a fumble.

Allen unsurprisingly wasn't particularly efficient on a night when wind gusts around 50 miles per hour made it extremely difficult to throw. Compared to opposing quarterback Mac Jones' mere three attempts, however, Allen had far more chances through the air. He capitalized on a New England fumble by throwing a 14-yard touchdown to Gabriel Davis in the first quarter, but that only came after a bad handoff exchange between he and tailback Matt Breida resulted in a fumble of Allen's own. While he managed to compensate with decent yardage on the ground, leading the Bills in the category, the inclement weather combined with a stingy Patriots defense restricted Allen's overall output.

Damien Harris

Damien Harris

RB | NE

Done for night

Harris (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday night's game against Buffalo, Evan Lazar of the CLNS Media Network reports.

Harris picked up the injury right before halftime, and while he did manage to carry the ball once in the second half for 22 yards, it was clear he wasn't close to 100 percent. He failed to return to the contest after his lone rush in the third quarter. Expect Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden to shoulder the load at tailback the rest of the way. Prior to exiting Monday, Harris rushed 10 times for 111 yards and a touchdown, scoring from 64 yards out in the first half.

Scotty Miller

Scotty Miller

WR | TB

Limited to four snaps again

Miller did not log any targets across four targets in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Miller once again saw a minimal role on offense in his second game back from injured reserve and was the No. 5 receiver in terms of playing time. The speedster's outlook doesn't figure to brighten much for the foreseeable future, despite Antonio Brown (suspension/ankle) set to miss at least the next two games.

O.J. Howard

O.J. Howard

TE | TB

No targets over six snaps

Howard did not draw a target over six snaps during the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Howard's disappearing act from the offense continued Sunday, with the veteran failing to see a target for the second straight game and third time in the last four contests overall. The 27-year-old figures to continue as an afterthought in the offense as long as Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate are healthy in front of him.

Does little with plenty of snaps

Perriman logged 59 snaps during the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday but brought in just one of three targets for five yards.

The speedy journeyman was promoted from the practice squad Friday with Antonio Brown (suspension/ankle) unavailable, but he was minimally involved despite logging 50 more snaps than de facto No. 4 wideout Tyler Johnson. Perriman certainly has familiarity with coach Bruce Arians' system after having logged 14 games within it back in 2019. Sunday's lack of involvement could signify he's still got a ways to go before building a rapport with Tom Brady.

Damien Harris

Damien Harris

RB | NE

Picks up hamstring injury

Harris injured his hamstring during Monday's game at Buffalo.

Harris made an early exit just ahead of halftime after he appeared to come up gimpy at the end of a carry. While he's officially deemed questionable to return, he jogged back to the sideline a few minutes after the Pats made this announcement. If Harris doesn't retake the field, though, Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden will man New England's backfield the rest of the way.

Tyler Johnson

Tyler Johnson

WR | TB

One grab in Week 13 win

Johnson brought in his only target for five yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Johnson logged only nine snaps from scrimmage, but that was actually tops among the Bucs wide receivers behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. The fact he outpaced Scotty Miller by five plays would seem to indicate Johnson still is ahead of him on the depth chart as the de facto No. 4 receiver while Antonio Brown (suspension/ankle) is out, but with Breshad Perriman recording just one reception across 59 snaps himself Sunday in the No. 3 role, it's possible Johnson ascends back into that spot.

Giovani Bernard

Giovani Bernard

RB | TB

Posts 17 all-purpose yards in win

Bernard rushed once for three yards, brought in one of two targets for seven yards and returned two punts for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Bernard played just seven snaps from scrimmage despite Ronald Jones' early exit from the contest with an illness. The veteran back also filled in as the primary returner with Jaelon Darden (concussion) out of action, and although he didn't get any kickoff return opportunities, he did run back the pair of punts. Bernard could continue pulling double duty if Darden is unable to suit up for the Week 14 showdown against the Bills.

JaMycal Hasty

JaMycal Hasty

RB | SF

Only back to escape Sunday healthy

Hasty (ankle) logged just one offensive snap and did not receive a touch in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Hasty returned from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury. The 25-year-old exited the contest as the lone healthy back after Elijah Mitchell (concussion), Jeff Wilson (knee) and Trenton Cannon (concussion) all suffered injuries. Mitchell will enter the league's concussion protocol while Wilson's situation will receive more clarity during practice this week. Hasty will see a bump in usage should either of the aforementioned backs miss Sunday's tilt against the Bengals. If both Mitchell and Wilson miss the contest, Hasty would become the 49ers' top back and gain a huge boost in Week 14 value, making him a decent speculative waiver add.

Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel

WR | WAS

Three touches in Week 13

Samuel caught one pass for minus-1 yard and rushed twice for minus-1 yard during Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders.

Samuel has struggled to stay healthy this year, as he played in back-to-back games for just the second time this season. The 5-foot-11 wide receiver continues to be utilized in numerous ways, but the production hasn't been there in his limited opportunities. With J.D. McKissic dealing with a concussion, Samuel may have gotten more snaps in the backfield during Week 13 than he normally would, but his versatility continues to make him an intriguing option for fantasy managers. Nonetheless, the key to his production is staying on the field and gaining coach Ron Rivera's trust.

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen

WR | LAC

Could still play Week 14

Allen (illness), who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, is vaccinated and could have a chance to clear all protocols prior to the Chargers' Week 14 game against the Giants, Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network reports.

Unvaccinated players that test positive are automatically subject to 10-day quarantines, while vaccinated players that test positive are eligible to rejoin their teams as soon as they're asymptomatic for at least 48 hours and able to turn in two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart. In the majority of similar cases this season, vaccinated players have typically needed more than a week to clear protocols, but the Steelers' T.J. Watt notably bucked the trend Week 13, returning to the team five days after testing positive and then playing his normal allotment of snaps in Pittsburgh's win over the Ravens. Allen will hope to follow a similar path Week 14, but the odds will still be against him gaining clearance ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. The fact that the Chargers are hosting the Giants rather than traveling across the country for the matchup at least removes one possible complication in Allen's bid to play this weekend.

Deebo Samuel

Deebo Samuel

WR | SF

Considered 'day-to-day'

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Samuel is "day-to-day," and he hopes the wide receiver will be able to suit up for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Samuel has missed one game due to the groin strain he picked up Week 12 against the Vikings. His next appearance on the practice field will be his first since he suffered the injury, and it's unclear if that'll happen Wednesday, as Shanahan told Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site that it's "still too early to tell" regarding Samuel's status for Week 14. As a result, Samuel's listing on 49ers injury reports will be something to monitor as the week goes on. Without Samuel in the lineup this past Sunday at Seattle, Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Sherfield led San Francisco in playing time at wide receiver, while Jauan Jennings and Travis Benjamin mixed in behind the pair.

Jack Doyle

Jack Doyle

TE | IND

Catches only target

Doyle caught his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Doyle battled a knee injury throughout practice ahead of Week 13, but he ultimately was ruled active and played 42 offensive snaps. Although he was able to play, fantasy managers were left a little disappointed in his overall production. Sunday's performance marked the first time since Week 7 that Doyle didn't record multiple receptions or a touchdown. Doyle will have a bye week to rest his sore knee before the Colts return for back-to-back tough matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals.

Zack Moss

Zack Moss

RB | BUF

Avoids inactive list Monday

Moss is active for Monday's game against the Patriots.

Moss was a healthy scratch in the Bills' last game on Thanksgiving at New Orleans, yielding RB reps to Devin Singletary and Matt Breida. It's unclear how offensive coordinator Brian Daboll intends to reincorporate Moss into the lineup, but he may be available due to the need for a consistent ground game due to the windy and snowy conditions in Buffalo on Monday. On the season, Moss has averaged 3.5 yards on his 75 carries, reeled in 18 of 26 targets for 166 yards and scored five total TDs in nine appearances.

Ashton Dulin

Ashton Dulin

WR | IND

Touchdown in back-to-back games

Dulin caught his only target for two yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Over the past two weeks, Dulin has caught both of his targets for the first two TDs of his NFL career. The third-year wideout's lack of targets relative to his scores is likely a red flag that his production over the last two weeks is an outlier. Regardless, fantasy managers should continue to monitor Dulin's status, as T.Y. Hilton has failed to solidify himself as the clear cut No. 2 receiver behind Michael Pittman.

Jeff Wilson Jr.

Jeff Wilson Jr.

RB | SF

Hurts knee in Week 13

Wilson sustained a knee injury during Sunday's loss in Seattle, but he should be able to practice this week, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

After the game, coach Kyle Shanahan noted Wilson came out of it hobbled but didn't note a body part. On Monday, Shanahan said Wilson's knee "flared up." As a result, Wednesday's injury report will give an indication of his level of health. With Elijah Mitchell and Trenton Cannon in the concussion protocol, the 49ers have just one healthy running back (JaMycal Hasty) on the active roster.

Nick Folk

Nick Folk

K | NE

Confirmed active for Monday night

Folk (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against Buffalo.

The Patriots' kicker has missed just three of 34 field-goal attempts this season, all three of which came from 50-plus yards. Folk will face a difficult challenge Monday night with forecasts predicting sustained winds of 25-to-35 miles per hour. Both teams may shy away from kicking field goals as a result of the severe weather.

Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell

RB | SF

In concussion protocol

Mitchell entered the concussion protocol Monday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Mitchell was checked for a concussion in the fourth quarter of this past Sunday's loss at Seattle but was cleared to return. He eventually finished with 22 carries for 66 yards and one touchdown and added three catches (on three targets) for 18 yards. Having said that, coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that Mitchell reported concussion symptoms Monday morning and now will be subject to the five phases of the protocol for head injuries to receive clearance for game action. Mitchell's activity level thus will be of keen interest once the 49ers resume practicing midweek. If he's able to log a limited session Wednesday and/or Thursday, he'd be trending in a positive direction ahead of Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Brandon Bolden

Brandon Bolden

RB | NE

Suiting up Monday

Bolden (knee) is listed as active Monday at Buffalo.

After putting in three limited sessions in advance of this contest, Bolden was considered questionable for Week 13 action. Now that he's officially available to the offense, he'll join lead runner Damien Harris and rookie Rhamondre Stevenson in the Patriots backfield. With swirling wind and snowy conditions in Buffalo, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels may rely more on the ground game than usual, but it remains to be seen if that'll be a boon for Bolden. On the season, Bolden has averaged 5.4 yards on his 26 carries and gathered in 31 of 33 targets for 296 yards and one TD.

Zach Pascal

Zach Pascal

WR | IND

Catches one pass Sunday

Pascal caught one of his three targets for six yards and added one rushing attempt for 12 yards during Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Pascal finished third on the team in targets behind Michael Pittman (eight) and Nyheim Hines (four), but he was only able to haul in one of them for a modest gain. Over his last two games, the wideout has garnered 10 targets, but he has caught just three passes for 18 yards. This is certainly a concerning trend and likely makes Pascal a risky fantasy option when the Colts resume action Week 15 against the Patriots.

Four touches in Week 13

Zaccheaus caught three of his five targets for 44 yards and also added one rushing attempt for two yards during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Zaccheaus finished tied with Cordarrelle Patterson and Tajae Sharpe for third on the team in targets, but he was able to significantly outpace the two in total receiving yards. The third-year wideout's 44 receiving yards were his second-highest total of the season, and the most he's produced since his breakout Week 9 performance (three catches for 58 yards and two touchdowns). Nonetheless, slot man Russell Gage (11 catches for 130 yards) continues to be Matt Ryan's go-to reciever while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains away from the team. Zaccheaus will likely continue to see plenty of playing time to warrant attention, but his sporadic production makes him a risky fantasy option on a week-to-week basis.

Kene Nwangwu

RB | MIN

Works as secondary back

Nwangwu had two carries for zero yards, caught two of three targets for four yards and returned two kickoffs for 65 yards during Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

Nwangwu operated as Minnesota's No. 2 tailback with Dalvin Cook (shoulder) sidelined, but the rookie still played only nine offensive snaps. Alexander Mattison unsurprisingly dominated the backfield work with 22 carries and three receptions. Nwangwu is unlikely to have a significant offensive role while one of Cook or Mattison is healthy.

Cameron Jordan

Cameron Jordan

DL | NO

Tests positive for COVID-19

Jordan's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday was the result of a positive test for the virus, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

It's unclear if Jordan is vaccinated or not, but if he is, then he would need to register two negative tests at least 24 hours apart before being eligible to return to the active roster. On the season, the veteran defensive end has accumulated 38 tackles, four sacks, four pass deflections and one forced fumble, so his potential absence would be a big loss for the Saints' defensive front. If he is unable to clear protocols before Sunday, then Carl Granderson and Jalyn Holmes will likely be in line for increased snaps against the Jets.

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen

WR | LAC

Tests positive for COVID-19

Allen's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday was the result of a positive test for the virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Allen has been his usual productive self this season -- 86 catches for 929 yards on 124 targets -- but he only had two touchdowns before doubling that number this past Sunday in Cincinnati. Now, his status is in question following Monday's development. Coach Brandon Staley told Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register that Allen is "day-to-day right now, and hopefully we'll have some good news on him in the next few days." A lot of that depends on Allen's vaccination status. If he's able to test negative twice at least 24 hours apart, he'd be eligible to return to the active roster. If he's unable to do so before Sunday's game against the Giants, Jalen Guyton and Josh Palmer would be in line for more work along with starting wide receiver Mike Williams.

In line to practice this week

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that he expects Gordon (hip/shoulder) "to practice at some point during the week," Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

Gordon was unable to practice at any point last week due to hip and shoulder injuries and eventually was deemed inactive this past Sunday at Kansas City. The Broncos will get back on the field Wednesday in preparation for a Week 14 matchup with the Lions, at which point he could be a limited participant. With Gordon out Week 13, Denver turned to rookie Javonte Williams to lead the backfield, which he did to the tune of career highs in snap share (79 percent), touches (29) and yards from scrimmage (178).

Deonte Harris

WR | NO

Loses appeal, faces three-game ban

The NFL announced that Harris' three-game suspension was upheld following his appeal and will go into effect beginning with the Saints' Week 14 game Sunday against the Jets, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Harris was handed the suspension in late November following his July arrest on a DWI charge, but he was able to play in the Saints' past two games while waiting for his appeal to be heard. An already shallow New Orleans pass-catching group will now become even weaker with the loss of Harris, who leads the team with 523 receiving yards and ranks second with 31 receptions through his 11 appearances. He'll be eligible to rejoin the lineup for the Saints' Week 17 game against the Dolphins on Jan. 2. While Harris is out, the Saints likely will turn to a combination of Ty Montgomery, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Kenny Stills to serve as their No. 3 wideout alongside starters Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway.

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen

WR | LAC

Hits reserve/COVID-19 list

The Chargers placed Allen (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network reports.

The vaccination status of Allen is unclear, but he's now in danger of missing his first game of the season, one day removed from doubling his TD count on the campaign with two scoring strikes this past Sunday at Cincinnati. His status will be one to monitor as the week goes on, but if Allen ends up sidelined Week 14 against the Giants, Jalen Guyton and Josh Palmer would be in line for additional work alongside starting wide receiver Mike Williams.

Austin Ekeler

Austin Ekeler

RB | LAC

Banged up after Sunday's win

Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said Ekeler is dealing with "bumps and bruises" following Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals, but the running back is expected to practice during the upcoming week, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Fantasy managers will still want to check back in on Ekeler to make sure he's back on the field Wednesday for the start of Week 14 prep. Because Staley didn't specifically say that Ekeler was dealing with an injury, the 26-year-old will most likely be ready to handle his normal workload by the time this weekend's game against the Giants arrives. Ekeler carried 14 times for 59 yards and a touchdown and recorded five receptions for 45 yards on five targets in the victory over Cincinnati.

A.J. Klein

A.J. Klein

LB | BUF

Out for Monday night game

The Bills placed Klein on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Monday's game against the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

The absence of Klein for Week 13 is an unexpected blow to a defense that just lost stud corner Tre'Davious White to a season-ending knee injury. Tyler Matakevich and Andre Smith should be in line for more snaps as the Bills try to slow down a red-hot Patriots team in a game that has huge implications for both the AFC East crown and conference seeding.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Missing from walk-through practice

Thielen (ankle) was estimated as a non-participant for Monday's walk-through practice.

Thielen is still awaiting the results of an MRI on the left high-ankle sprain he sustained in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions, so his absence from the walk-through session a day later comes as little surprise. Even if the MRI reveals that Thielen is dealing with a low-grade sprain, he's still likely to have a tough time gaining clearance for a Week 14 matchup with the Steelers on Thursday. Though Thielen's early exit against Detroit opened up more snaps at receiver for K.J. Osborn and Dede Westbrook, the main takeaway for fantasy purposes was that more looks became available for Justin Jefferson. While tying his season high with 14 targets, Jefferson notched 11 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown.

Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook

RB | MIN

No reps during walk-through

Cook (shoulder) was estimated as a non-participant Monday in the Vikings' walk-through practice.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer hasn't been willing to put a timeline on Cook's return from the dislocated left shoulder he sustained in the Week 12 loss to the 49ers, with Zimmer merely labeling the running back as day-to-day. After sitting out the Vikings' Week 13 loss to the Lions and having yet to get back on the practice field, Cook would seem to face an uphill battle to gain clearance for a Thursday matchup with the Steelers in Week 14. If that's the case, Alexander Mattison would be poised for a second straight turn as Minnesota's lead back.

Darren Waller

Darren Waller

TE | LV

Deemed day-to-day

Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia labeled Waller (knee/back) as day-to-day Monday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

The day-to-day label is a notable change for Waller, whom Bisaccia characterized as week-to-week with the pair of injuries when he met with the media seven days ago. Waller ultimately sat out Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington after failing to practice last week, but he looks like he'll have a chance at making it back to the lineup for the Raiders' Week 14 game in Kansas City. Waller's availability against the Chiefs likely will hinge on what he's able to do on the practice field Wednesday through Friday.

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake

RB | LV

Getting surgery on broken ankle

Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia said Monday that Drake will undergo surgery on his right ankle in Birmingham, Ala. later this week, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

As expected, Drake will require a procedure to address the season-ending fractured right ankle he sustained in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington. The Raiders should have a clearer idea on a recovery timeline for Drake once surgery is completed, but he could have a shot at making it back for OTAs in the spring. He'll conclude his first season in Las Vegas with 545 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns on 7.7 touches per game over his 12 appearances. Drake's absence leaves Jalen Richard and Peyton Barber as the lone depth options at running back behind starter Josh Jacobs, who could take on a slightly larger role as a ballcarrier and pass catcher with Drake out of the picture.

Hayden Hurst

Hayden Hurst

TE | ATL

Back at practice

Atlanta designated Hurst (ankle) for return from injured reserve Monday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

The transaction opens up a 21-day window for the Falcons to evaluate Hurst in practice, but Atlanta's decision to waive reserve tight end Parker Hesse on Monday is a strong hint that the Falcons are expecting Hurst to rejoin the 53-man roster in advance of their Week 14 game in Carolina. Before missing Atlanta's last three contests with the ankle injury, Hurst had suited up in each of the team's first nine games of the season, recording 20 receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown on 25 targets.

Jordan Love

Jordan Love

QB | GB

Lands on COVID-19 list

The Packers placed Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

According to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Love previously disclosed to reporters that he's vaccinated, which means his placement on the list is the result of a breakthrough positive test. Love will be eligible to rejoin the Packers as soon as he's showing diminished symptoms of the virus and tests negative on two occasions at least 24 hours apart, giving him a chance to make it back as the backup to Aaron Rodgers for Sunday's game against the Bears. With Rodgers nursing a toe injury that will likely result in him sitting out portions of practice this week, practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert could take most of the first-team reps over the next few days.

Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool

WR | PIT

Termed as non-participant on report

Claypool (toe) was listed as a non-participant Monday on Pittsburgh's estimated practice report, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Pittsburgh didn't hold a practice one day after its 20-19 win over the Ravens, but Claypool looks as though he would have gotten some maintenance had the Steelers taken the field. The toe issue isn't a new concern for Claypool, who sat out the Week 10 tie with the Lions due to the injury. He's been able to play each of the past three games without any reported setbacks, however, so Claypool will more than likely get the green light to suit up when the Steelers take on the Vikings on Thursday.

Non-participant on first report

Roethlisberger (pectoral/shoulder) was listed as a non-participant Monday on their estimated practice report, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Pittsburgh didn't hold a practice Monday as it prepares for a Thursday matchup with the Vikings in Week 14, but Roethlisberger looks like he would have received a maintenance day had the Steelers taken a field. The pectoral and right shoulder issues have made Roethlisberger a fixture on the injury report all season, but his only absence on game day came Week 10 against the Lions, when he was sidelined due to a positive COVID-19 test. In his three games since returning to the lineup, Roethlisberger has completed 62.9 percent of his throws for 6.7 yards per attempt and a 6:2 TD:INT.

Tajaé Sharpe

Tajaé Sharpe

WR | ATL

Sees five targets in loss

Sharpe caught three of his five targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Sharpe finished tied with Olamide Zaccheaus and Cordarrelle Patterson for third on the team in targets, but Sharpe's 10 receiving yards were only better than Qadree Ollison and Keith Smith. The 6-foot-2 wideout continues to operate as the No. 1 outside receiver while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but the designation has not yielded the expected results. Matt Ryan continues to rely on slot man Russell Gage (11 receptions for 130 yards), tight end Kyle Pitts (four receptions for 48 yards) and his trio of running backs (eight receptions for 99 yards) in the pass game. As long as Ridley is away from the team, Sharpe is expected to garner plenty of snaps, but his sporadic production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him on a weekly basis.

Kamu Grugier-Hill

Kamu Grugier-Hill

LB | HOU

Turns in historic game

Grugier-Hill tallied 20 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

The Colts more than doubled up the Texans in time of possession (41:35 to 18:25), resulting in the Houston defense staying on the field for most of the day. Thanks largely to the game flow, Grugier-Hill was able to make history in the blowout loss, establishing a new Texans franchise record for tackles in a game while also becoming the first NFL player since 1999 to finish with at least 19 tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack. Over his last four games alone, Grugier-Hill has amassed 47 stops, two sacks, one interception and one forced fumble, making him an elite IDP lineup option.

Cameron Brate

Cameron Brate

TE | TB

Finds end zone on one catch

Brate secured his only target for a three-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

The veteran tight end played just 19 percent of snaps (13), but he was able to make good use of his one reception. Brate's three-yard score late in the first quarter served as his second touchdown of the season, matching his 2020 total, which was achieved over 16 games. His visit to the end zone notwithstanding, he remains an option only in very deep PPR formats and as a DFS dart throw due to his typically low volume and limited role behind Rob Gronkowski.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

Headed for season-ending surgery

Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Davis will undergo season-ending core-muscle surgery.

Davis lasted just 24 plays in Sunday's loss to the Eagles before checking out of the contest after aggravating the groin injury that previously sidelined him for the Week 12 win over the Texans. The core-muscle injury was more than likely related to the hip issue that also sidelined Davis for Weeks 8 and 9, so the Jets are seemingly hopeful that surgery will be able to address the matter once and for all. Signed to a three-year, $37.5 million contract this offseason with the hope that he would emerge as a bona fide No. 1 wideout for New York, Davis finishes his inaugural campaign with the Jets with 34 receptions for 492 yards and four touchdowns on 59 targets over nine appearances. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, most core-muscle procedures carry 8-to-10-week recovery timelines, so Davis should be back at 100 percent -- or close to it -- for OTAs.

Qadree Ollison

Qadree Ollison

RB | ATL

Three touches in Week 13

Ollison had two rushing attempts for seven yards and caught his only target for eight yards during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Ollison led the team in carries during the Week 11 loss to the Patriots, but he was kept on the practice squad for Week 12 after being sidelined with an illness. The Falcons backfield continues to be a mystery behind Cordarrelle Patterson, as Wayne Gallman, Mike Davis and Ollison have each had sizable roles at certain times and limited action in other games. With Gallman a healthy scratch Week 13, Davis (38 snaps) and Patterson (34) paced the Falcons' running backs in production, while Ollison (13) operated in reserve.

Jauan Jennings

Jauan Jennings

WR | SF

Sticks in No. 3 role

Jennings logged 29 offensive snaps (50 percent) while catching his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to Seattle.

Trent Sherfield (two receptions for 16 yards) took over Deebo Samuel's (groin) spot in the starting lineup, which kept Jennings in the slot role for the time being. When Samuel returns -- he could be back as soon as this Sunday -- it will be interesting to see whether Jennings will retain his spot at third on the receiver depth chart, or if Sherfield has permanently leapfrogged him. Either way, the 23-year-old remains nothing more than a potential red-zone target (two touchdowns on eight red-zone targets) with limited playing time.

T.J. Watt

T.J. Watt

LB | PIT

Puts heat on Lamar Jackson

Watt forced a fumble and tallied six tackles -- including a career-high 3.5 sacks -- in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

Watt's availability heading into the Week 13 matchup was in question after he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday and didn't practice all week, but the linebacker ultimately was able to get the two consecutive negative tests of the virus that he needed to gain clearance to play. If Watt experienced any symptoms while in quarantine, it wasn't evident by his play Sunday, as he was credited with half of the Steelers' seven sacks of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. Watt now is up to a league-leading 16 sacks through 10 appearances, giving him a shot at breaking Hall of Famer Michael Strahan's single-season record (22.5) over the Steelers' final five games.

Trent Sherfield

Trent Sherfield

WR | SF

Season-high five targets

Sherfield had two receptions (on five targets) for 16 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to Seattle.

Deebo Samuel (groin) was forced to sit this one out, so Sherfield jumped into the starting lineup alongside Brandon Aiyuk. The 25-year-old filled in for Samuel in the fourth quarter of last week's contest, so it wasn't shocking to see the wideout take on the starter's snaps (98 percent of offensive snaps). Sherfield saw a season-high five targets but was understandably unable to replicate the star's production who he was replacing. Samuel initially was expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks, so he could return as soon as this Sunday's matchup against the Bengals. If Samuel is unable to go, Sherfield again figures to fill in, providing only deep-league value in that scenario.

Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow

QB | CIN

Could be limited in practice

Head coach Zac Taylor said Burrow could be limited in practice for the start of Week 14 prep after dislocating his right pinkie finger in Sunday's 41-22 loss to the Chargers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

According to Ben Baby of ESPN.com, Taylor noted that Burrow "feels good" after playing through the injury Sunday, but the second-year quarterback could get some extra maintenance early on this week in any case to relieve some of the pressure on his pinkie finger. Unless the finger swells up and presents more difficulty with his throwing in practice than expected, Burrow doesn't look to be at any major risk of missing the Bengals' upcoming game against the 49ers this weekend.

Marlon Humphrey

Marlon Humphrey

DB | BAL

Done for season

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that Humphrey suffered a season-ending torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Steelers, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

As suspected, the Ravens will be without their top cornerback for the rest of the way after an MRI confirmed the injury. He'll close out his fifth NFL campaign with 58 tackles, 13 pass breakups, one forced fumble and one interception across 12 games. Anthony Averett and Chris Westry (thigh) are likely to serve as Baltimore's primary boundary corners for the rest of the season, while Tavon Young serves as the team's slot corner.

Leads team in targets

O'Shaughnessy caught two of six targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 37-7 loss to the Rams.

O'Shaughnessy's six targets led Jacksonville's pass catchers, but it didn't add up to much production. The 29-year-old continues to operate as the team's No.1 tight end with Dan Arnold (knee) on injured reserve, but he has a low floor for fantasy purposes given the struggles of quarterback Trevor Lawrence and the offense as a whole.

Secures three receptions

Shenault caught three of five targets for 30 yards and carried three times for one yard during Sunday's 37-7 loss to the Rams.

Shenault finished third among Jacksonville's wideouts with a season-low 31 offensive snaps, though he did tie for second on the team in targets. The 2020 second-round pick has seen at least five targets in each of the past four games but has only 16 receptions for 128 yards during that span. Shenault has yet to score a touchdown through 12 games this season, and his 6.2 yards per target as part of a scuffling offense means his fantasy appeal is limited.

Laquon Treadwell

Laquon Treadwell

WR | JAX

Finishes as top receiver again

Treadwell caught four of five targets for 62 yards during Sunday's 37-7 loss to the Rams.

Rookie QB Trevor Lawrence continues to struggle and finished with only 145 passing yards Sunday, and Treadwell nearly had as many receiving yards as every other pass catcher combined. The 2016 first-round pick has led Jacksonville's receivers with eight receptions for 115 yards across the past two games, and he also led the corps in offensive snaps Sunday. Treadwell's production is likely a mirage given how poor the offense is performing overall, but he's shown a solid rapport with Lawrence and has been a surprising bright spot the last couple weeks.

Jake Fromm

Jake Fromm

QB | NYG

Could get Week 14 start

Fromm is expected to prepare for his first NFL start Sunday against the Chargers during practices this week with the statuses of Daniel Jones (neck) and Mike Glennon (concussion) uncertain, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

After being signed off the Bills' practice squad last Tuesday, Fromm served as the backup to Glennon in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins. Though Glennon took every snap in the contest, he was diagnosed with a concussion afterward. While Jones has yet to be cleared for contact and is considered week-to-week, Glennon's status is more up in the air, given the volatile nature of recovery timelines for concussions. At the very least, Glennon seems unlikely to clear the protocol before the Giants resume practicing Wednesday, setting Fromm up to take all the first-team reps to begin the week. The 23-year-old's lone NFL action has come with Buffalo in the 2021 preseason, with Fromm completing 21 of 36 attempts for 172 yards and no touchdowns while taking five sacks. He also added 17 yards and a touchdown on three carries.

Dede Westbrook

Dede Westbrook

WR | MIN

Sees more work sans Thielen

Westbrook played 31 of the Vikings' 71 offensive snaps (44 percent) in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions, finishing with one reception for minus-2 yards on two targets.

With Adam Thielen exiting the contest early with what was later revealed to be a high-ankle sprain, Westbrook and K.J. Osborn both picked up extra snaps alongside Justin Jefferson in three-receiver sets. Thielen will undergo an MRI on Monday before the Vikings provide an official update on the extent of his injury, but in the likely event he misses the team's Week 14 contest Thursday against Pittsburgh, Westbrook will likely be needed to play more snaps.

Logan Thomas

Logan Thomas

TE | WAS

Still undergoing tests

Thomas underwent an MRI on his left knee Monday that came back better than the team had hoped, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Although Washington initially believed that Thomas tore his ACL and MCL in Sunday's win over the Raiders, his initial MRI revealed that he didn't suffer an ACL tear. The 30-year-old will undergo further testing to help determine his diagnosis and still appears likely to miss time, but his early test results are slightly encouraging.

Cam Newton

Cam Newton

QB | CAR

Expected to start in Week 14

Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Newton is expected to start Sunday's game against Atlanta, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Newton completed just five of 21 passes for 92 yards and two interceptions while rushing three times for five yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' loss to Miami in Week 12. Although he was benched late in the contest, he's expected to begin Sunday's game against the Falcons under center. Rhule isn't yet sure whether P.J. Walker will have a role for Carolina in Week 14, but it appears as though Newton should see the majority of the work against the Falcons' exploitable defense.

Byron Pringle

Byron Pringle

WR | KC

Draws four targets in win

Pringle recorded one reception for 14 yards on four targets Sunday in the Chiefs' 22-9 win over the Broncos.

Pringle played 70 percent of the Chiefs' offensive snaps in the contest, good for his largest share of the season. The uptick in reps didn't translate into much meaningful production, however, as the Kansas City aerial attack continues to prioritize Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill above all else. The likes of Pringle, Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon and Demarcus Robinson can't be counted on to deliver fantasy-friendly performances on a weekly basis.

Hayden Hurst

Hayden Hurst

TE | ATL

Nearing return to practice

Coach Arthur Smith indicated Monday that Hurst (ankle) could return to practice this week, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Hurst has been on injured reserve for each of the last three games, but he's now back at the team facility. If the 28-year-old ultimately is able to resume practicing this week, he'll have a chance to play Sunday against Carolina.

Gerald Everett

Gerald Everett

TE | SEA

Notches just seven yards

Everett caught four of six targets for seven yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

Everett wasn't efficient with his targets Sunday. Still, the fifth-year tight end has logged at least 75 percent of the offensive snaps in four straight games while Will Dissly hasn't handled more than 53 percent of the snaps in that stretch. It's clear who the No. 1 tight end is in Seattle. Nevertheless, Everett is averaging just 27.9 yards per game with two total touchdowns this year.

Rashaad Penny

Rashaad Penny

RB | SEA

Leads backfield in snaps

Penny rushed 10 times for 35 yards and caught his lone target for 27 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the 49ers.

Penny led the Seahawks' committee backfield with a season-high 40 percent snap share, playing more than Travis Homer (30 percent) and Adrian Peterson (27 percent). The 2018 first-round pick wasn't very efficient on the ground, and his longest run was for 11 yards. Alex Collins (abdomen) is expected to return Week 14 against the Texans, and it's unclear where Penny will fit in moving forward, especially with Peterson settling into the offense.

Travis Homer

Travis Homer

RB | SEA

Scores on fake punt

Homer rushed three times for 80 yards and a touchdown and caught four of five targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

After failing to get a first down on the opening drive, the Seahawks ran a fake punt where Homer took a direct snap and ran 73 yards to the house. The third-year running back showed off his speed and open-field awareness in the process. Homer also recorded a 30 percent snap share, finishing ahead of Adrian Peterson (27 percent) but behind Rashaad Penny (40 percent). Even with the explosive play. Homer's rest-of-season outlook isn't fantasy relevant. He'll likely lose snaps next week with Alex Collins (abdomen) expected back.

Julio Jones

Julio Jones

WR | TEN

Designated for return

The Titans have designated Jones (hamstring) to return from IR, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Jones' 21-day window for evaluation will begin as a result of this transaction. The veteran wideout hasn't suited up since Week 9 due to a lingering hamstring injury, but the Titans now can bring him back to the active roster to retake the field as early as Sunday's upcoming matchup against the Jaguars. With A.J. Brown (chest) on IR through at least Week 15 versus Pittsburgh, a return from Jones would provide a substantial boost for Ryan Tannehill and Tennessee's offense.

Tyrod Taylor

Tyrod Taylor

QB | HOU

Could have torn ligaments

Taylor is believed to have suffered torn ligaments in his non-throwing wrist, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Taylor will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury that forced him out of Sunday's blowout loss to the Colts, but if he's indeed suffered torn ligaments, the veteran will be in real danger of missing time. Rookie third-round pick Davis Mills would stand to slot into the starting lineup versus Seattle in Week 14 if Taylor can't go.

Kenny Yeboah

Kenny Yeboah

TE | NYJ

Could play more due to injuries

Yeboah failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.

Yeboah's still looking for his first NFL catch, but the undrafted rookie tight end could be thrust into a more prominent role moving forward. Tyler Kroft (chest) is on injured reserve and Ryan Griffin exited the loss to Philadelphia with an ankle injury, joining Trevon Wesco (ankle) on the sidelines. As a result of injuries at the position, it's conceivable that the Jets' depth at tight end in Week 14 against the Saints will consist of just Yeboah and journeyman special teams contributor Daniel Brown.

Justin Fields

Justin Fields

QB | CHI

Availability for Week 14 uncertain

Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that a decision about the availability of Fields (ribs) for Week 14 will be an "ongoing discussion," Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Nagy noted that Fields' ability to play will come down to pain tolerance, per Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago. He also said the Bears "won't put [Fields] at risk medically," perhaps hinting that the team will take a cautious approach with the rookie's recovery. If Fields ends up missing another contest while recovering from fractured ribs, Andy Dalton will be called upon again to head Chicago's offense during Sunday's upcoming divisional matchup against the Packers.

Ty Johnson

Ty Johnson

RB | NYJ

Remains stuck behind Coleman

Johnson rushed once for one yard and caught two of four targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.

Johnson hasn't capitalized on the absence of Michael Carter (ankle), having been out-touched 32-9 by Tevin Coleman over the past two weeks. Coleman will likely receive the lion's share of playing time in New York's backfield against the stout Saints front in Week 14, leaving Johnson in a change-of-pace role once again.

Mekhi Sargent

RB | LAR

Receives garbage-time looks

Sargent rushed twice for five yards during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. He only played two offensive snaps.

The 24-year-old running back spelled Sony Michel at the end of the game in garbage time for his two rushes, so he was hardly a factor in the game plan. Additionally, once Darrell Henderson (thigh) is healthy, Sargent will likely be entirely uninvolved in the offense.

Ben Skowronek

WR | LAR

Hauls in career-long gain

Skowronek caught one of his two targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. He played 16 offensive snaps.

The rookie out of Notre Dame started and saw more run in the offense than normal Sunday, and he also made a career-long catch on the first Los Angeles possession of the second quarter. Skowronek probably received the boost in playing time because Odell Beckham was nursing a hip injury, and while he currently has limited upside, it does appear Skowronek has established himself as the No. 4 wide receiver on the depth chart.

Kendall Blanton

Kendall Blanton

TE | LAR

Catches pass in garbage time

Blanton caught one of his two targets for six yards during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. He played 10 offensive snaps.

This was the second reception of the season for the 26-year-old tight end. However, it came with Los Angeles up 30-7 and in complete control of the game. Blanton has primarily been utilized on special teams this season, and he's likely to continue playing sparingly on offense.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Receiving MRI

Thielen (ankle) is undergoing an MRI on Monday, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Thielen will receive an MRI to determine the severity of his reported high-ankle sprain, an injury which forced him out of Sunday's divisional loss to the Lions. Considering the quick turnaround before Thursday's home matchup against the Steelers, Thielen appears to be looking unlikely for Week 14. For the time being, however, it remains unclear whether his injury will entail a multi-week absence.

Eddy Piñeiro

Eddy Piñeiro

K | NYJ

Signs with Jets

Pineiro signed with the Jets on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old veteran will join New York's active roster just one day after Alex Kessman missed both his extra-point attempts in his NFL debut. Pineiro could see action with the Jets if Kessman's struggles continue.

Tyrod Taylor

Tyrod Taylor

QB | HOU

No starter chosen for Week 14

Taylor (wrist) hasn't yet been ruled out for Week 14 against the Seahawks, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Taylor was replaced by Davis Mills during Sunday's blowout loss to the Colts after suffering a possible hyperextension of his wrist. Per Sidhu, Taylor will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury. A final decision on the Week 14 starter won't be made until the results of Taylor's MRI are available, and perhaps not until the Texans have had a chance to evaluate the veteran at practice.

Pat Freiermuth

Pat Freiermuth

TE | PIT

Totals 26 yards in Week 13

Freiermuth secured three of four targets for 26 yards and caught a two-point conversion in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

Freiermuth sustained a concussion in last week's loss to Cincinnati, but he was a full participant in each of the Steelers' three practice sessions this week and didn't appear to be on a snap count against the Ravens, as the rookie was on the field for 73 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Freiermuth has been targeted at least four times in each of the last seven games, and he's brought in 32 of 44 targets for 253 yards and five touchdowns during that time.

Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones

QB | NYG

Looks set for another absence

Jones (neck) is considered likely to miss the Giants' Week 14 game against the Chargers, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Jones missed Sunday's 20-9 loss against the Dolphins due to a neck injury serious enough that head coach Joe Judge refused to rule out the possibility of it being season-ending. Prior reports have labeled Jones as week-to-week, but he still managed to log three limited practices before being ruled out prior to Sunday's loss in Miami since he hadn't been cleared for contact. All things considered, though Jones hasn't been ruled out for Week 14 yet, he appears to be trending toward another absence. Meanwhile, top backup Mike Glennon suffered a concussion in his start against the Dolphins, making his own status uncertain for Week 14. As a result, Jake Fromm could get the chance to start in Los Angeles next weekend for what would be his NFL debut.

John Bates

John Bates

TE | WAS

Moves up depth chart

Bates caught three of four targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders, while teammate Logan Thomas (knee) suffered a likely season-ending injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's been a rough year health-wise for Washington tight ends -- Thomas previously missing six games due to a hamstring injury, while backup Ricky Seals-Jones has now missed three in a row with a hip issue. Seals-Jones filled an every-down role the first time Thomas was out, until his hip injury put Bates on the spot in a similar role Week 11 at Carolina. The rookie caught each of his three targets for 23 yards in that game, playing 99 percent of snaps before handing the job back to Thomas the next week. It's now possible Bates takes on a full-time role again if Seals-Jones isn't ready for Week 14 against Dallas, though the rookie is less of a pass-catching threat than his position mates in the Washington TE room.

DeAndre Carter

DeAndre Carter

WR | WAS

Targeted once

Carter caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders, playing 49 of 67 snaps (73 percent) on offense.

It was Carter's fourth start in the past five games, with a snap share in the 67-75 percent range in all five. Curtis Samuel has returned in a limited role, but that hasn't impacted Carter's snap or route shares. Even so, the journeyman speedster nonetheless came up short in the production department Sunday after catching 12 of 20 targets for 171 yards and three TDs over the past four games. Carter's likely done enough to keep his spot for Week 14 against Dallas, but another quiet outing could have him looking over his shoulder at Samuel or third-round rookie Dyami Brown.

Nico Collins

WR | HOU

No impact in Week 13 loss

Collins did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

For the first time this season, Collins failed to register a reception, but he continues to play a prominent role as the No. 2 wideout. The rookie had averaged a little more than four targets per game over the previous six contests. He'll remain as the second wideout over the final weeks of the season, as the franchise looks to set him up for 2022. In the present, however, Collins doesn't bring much value. The Michigan product has just 18 catches over nine games and has yet to score. The problem is the team, which ranks last in total offense and next-to-last in passing offense.

Davion Davis

WR | HOU

Starts in Houston debut

Davis started at slot receiver and did not catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 31-0 loss to Indianapolis.

Davis had not dressed for any games since Houston signed him off the Browns' practice squad in early October, but he was the primary beneficiary of slot receiver Danny Amendola landing on injured reserve with a knee injury. Davis played 20 snaps, seven more than Chris Moore, who had filled in earlier this season when Amendola was unavailable. Amendola is expected to miss at least another three weeks, so Davis should have more opportunities to prove he warrants consideration for next year's roster.

Chris Moore

Chris Moore

WR | HOU

Gets no bump without Amendola

Moore played 13 of 52 snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Danny Amendola (knee) was inactive Sunday, but that did not translate into an increase in playing time for Moore, who filled in for Amendola earlier this season when the slot receiver was injured. Instead, Moore watched Davion Davis enter the starting lineup in the slot. Davis was targeted twice (no catches) on 20 snaps. With Amendola expected to miss another three weeks at a minimum, there should be opportunities for both Moore and Davis, but Houston's passing attack doesn't offer much hope for fantasy managers.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley

WR | HOU

Shut out in loss

Conley did not catch any of his four targets in Sunday's 31-0 loss to Indianapolis.

Conley failed to make a catch for the second consecutive week and for the fifth time in 12 contests overall. He played 30 of 52 snaps (58 percent), which is about his season average (60 percent), so he did not receive a bump in playing time with Danny Amendola (knee) sidelined. That should be expected considering Amendola is a slot receiver while Conley plays mostly on the outside.

Brevin Jordan

Brevin Jordan

TE | HOU

Targeted four times

Jordan caught two of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's 31-0 loss to Indianapolis.

The Texans made veteran Jordan Akins inactive for a third consecutive week, so Jordan was the primary receiving tight end. While his overall numbers over five games don't jump off the page, he's scored two touchdowns and leads Houston tight ends in red-zone targets since becoming a regular on the active roster.

Royce Freeman

Royce Freeman

RB | HOU

Steps up as second back

Freeman had three carries for 10 yards and caught his lone target for 11 yards in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Freeman, who moved up the depth chart after the Texans made David Johnson (illness) inactive for the game, played 22 snaps in his most significant contribution since being claimed off waivers in early November. He served as the No. 2 back behind Rex Burkhead. It was Freeman's second game as part of the active roster and first time getting work on offense. The Texans may give him, along with Jaylen Samuels, more work in the coming weeks as the organization focuses on its 2022 roster.

Jaylen Samuels

Jaylen Samuels

RB | HOU

Makes Texans debut

Samuels had two carries for two yards and did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Samuels, who was called up from the practice squad to provide insurance with David Johnson (illness) inactive, played eight snaps in his debut for the Texans. He logged in as the third back behind Rex Burkhead and Royce Freeman. While the Texans have started to integrate young talent at other positions, they've held steadfast with established veterans at running back. Burkhead and Johnson remain atop the depth chart, but Houston head coach David Culley may eventually turn to guys like Samuels and Freeman as the franchise's focus pivots toward the 2022 roster.

Peyton Barber

Peyton Barber

RB | LV

Logs five offensive snaps Sunday

Barber caught his only target for two yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington. He also returned one kickoff for 24 yards.

Barber played just five offensive snaps behind starter Josh Jacobs, despite fellow reserve Jalen Richard's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Fellow running back Kenyan Drake is slated to miss the rest of the season with a broken ankle, however, so Barber figures to remain active against Kansas City in Week 14.

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

WR | LV

Targeted once in loss

Jackson caught his only target for 14 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Jackson played 24 of the Raiders' 59 offensive snaps in his fourth contest with the team, but Hunter Renfrow was Las Vegas' only wide receiver to record more than 30 receiving yards. Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones continue to see more playing time than Jackson as well, so the latter's fantasy floor remains low ahead of a Week 14 matchup against Kansas City.

Foster Moreau

Foster Moreau

TE | LV

One reception in Waller's absence

Moreau caught one of three targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Moreau's three targets all came within a two-drive span during the third quarter, so he was relatively uninvolved in the Raiders' underwhelming aerial attack throughout much of Sunday's contest despite the absence of No. 1 tight end Darren Waller (back/knee). Moreau has caught just three total passes since the team's Week 8 bye, but he could see another inflated snap count at Kansas City in Week 14 if Waller remains sidelined.

Rough performance in loss

Bridgewater completed 22 of 40 pass attempts for 257 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while adding 17 yards on four carries in Sunday's 22-9 loss to Kansas City.

Bridgewater was the latest to fall victim to the now defense-led Chiefs. The veteran signal-caller was able to finally top 250 passing yards for the first time since Week 6, and he is averaging just 210.6 yards with six touchdowns and three picks over that six-game span. Bridgewater will look to take advantage of a Week 14 matchup against a Detroit team that currently surrenders 21.7 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks.

Totals 82 yards in win

Edwards-Helaire (illness) rushed 14 times for 54 yards and had three receptions for 28 yards in Sunday's 22-9 win over the Broncos.

Edwards-Helaire was questionable leading up to Sunday with a non-COVID illness, but he was able to shake the ailment and start for the Chiefs. The 22-year-old continued to serve as lead back, out-touching Darrel Williams 17 to eight in a scrappy victory. Edwards-Helaire will look to break the century mark in total yards for the first time since Week 4 in a tasty matchup against the Raiders (21.1 fantasy points per game allowed to opposing running backs this year) next Sunday.

Noah Fant

Noah Fant

TE | DEN

33 yards in loss

Fant caught all four targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to Kansas City.

Javonte Williams (102 rushing yards and 76 receiving yards) shouldered the load on offense, resulting in lackluster outputs from the majority of Denver's receiving unit. Fant was providing some fantasy value earlier in the season, but the tight end has seen his production drop off of late, averaging a shade under four receptions and 30.2 receiving yards over his last five contests. The 23-year-old will attempt to bounce back in a favorable matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

Jerry Jeudy

Jerry Jeudy

WR | DEN

Leads team in receiving

Jeudy had four receptions on six targets for 77 yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs.

Jeudy was the lone Denver wideout to generate any sort of separation against the Chiefs' secondary, finishing with the team lead in receiving production. The 2020 first-round pick has slowly become Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target since being activated from injured reserve back in Week 8. Jeudy is averaging four receptions and 45 yards in the four games since returning, giving him a decent base as a deep-league option heading into a matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes

QB | KC

Claws way to victory

Mahomes completed 15 of 29 pass attempts for 184 yards and an interception while adding 12 yards and a touchdown on four rush attempts in Sunday's 22-9 win over Denver.

Mahomes was stymied by the Broncos' aggresive approach on defense, as the constant pressure kept the quarterback from developing rhythm in the pocket. In the superstar's defense, his lone interception came as a result of a dropped pass by Tyreek Hill that bounced into Patrick Surtain's hands. Mahomes finished without a passing touchdown for the second consecutive game and third time overall this season; he did not have any zero-passing-touchdown games in 2020. Despite his recent struggles, the Chiefs continue to win and sit at 8-4 heading into an important matchup against the Raiders next Sunday.

Dee Eskridge

Dee Eskridge

WR | SEA

Scores first NFL touchdown

Eskridge caught all three of his targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

The rookie saw the same target volume as Freddie Swain, his competition for the No. 3 wideout role, but Eskridge made a bigger impact by catching a seven-yard TD toss from Russell Wilson late in the third quarter. It was the first touchdown of Eskridge's career, and he could be earning Wilson's trust heading into a Week 14 tilt against the Texans.

DK Metcalf

DK Metcalf

WR | SEA

Five grabs against Niners

Metcalf caught five of eight targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

He tied Tyler Lockett for the team lead in targets, but Metcalf didn't do as much with the volume as his teammate. It was still his best performance in four games since Seattle's bye, and with Russell Wilson also showing signs of rounding back into form, Metcalf could be primed for a breakout in Week 14 against the Texans.

Tyler Lockett

Tyler Lockett

WR | SEA

Hauls in TD in win

Lockett caught seven of eight targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

The speedster was once again Russell Wilson's favorite option, leading the Seahawks in catches and receiving yards and capping his day with the game-winning score, a 12-yard fade to the back corner of the end zone from Wilson late in the fourth quarter. Lockett's TD was his first since Week 2, but his touchdowns have tended to come in bunches throughout his career, making him a high-upside play in Week 14 against the Texans.

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce

TE | KC

Quiet in SNF win

Kelce had three receptions on eight targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 22-9 win over the Broncos.

The Broncos seemed committed to limiting the Chiefs' top two offensive options, and the strategy was effective in keeping the score close for the majority of the contest. This also resulted in a poor fantasy showing from Kelce, who produced his worst fantasy line this year in formats that award any points for receptions. The 31-year-old has responded with 50-plus yards and a touchdown in each of the two games following duds like Sunday's, so look for Kelce to bounce back in a favorable matchup against the Raiders next week.

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson

RB | SEA

Makes history with TD

Peterson carried the ball 11 times for 16 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

Signed earlier in the week to shore up an injury-plagued backfield, Peterson wound up leading Seattle in carries on the day, and while he didn't gain much yardage, his one-yard TD run in the second quarter was a big one. Not only did it begin a comeback from a 17-7 deficit, it was the 126th touchdown of Peterson's career, moving him into a tie with the legendary Jim Brown for 10th place on the NFL's all-time list. AP is also now one of only four players in history with 120 rushing TDs, joining Marcus Allen, LaDainian Tomlinson and Emmitt Smith in a very exclusive club. Whether this winds up being the lone highlight of his tenure with the Seahawks could depend on the health of Alex Collins (abdomen) heading into a Week 14 clash with the Texans.

Tyreek Hill

Tyreek Hill

WR | KC

Low usage in win

Hill had two receptions (five targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's 22-9 win over the Broncos.

Hill posted a rare dud in a matchup that the Chiefs dominated with their defense. Travis Kelce (three receptions for 27 yards) was also held in check, providing a rare instance in which both of Kansas City's superstar pass-catchers were non-factors. Perhaps the Chiefs' receiving duo will get back on track next Sunday against the Raiders, whose defensive personnel are far less likely to hold both players down.

Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson

QB | SEA

Sharp in Sunday's win

Wilson completed 30 of 37 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

For the first time in four games since returning from finger surgery, Wilson looked more like himself, and his line would have been even better had Gerald Everett not bobbled a pass at the goal line, turning a sure TD into an INT on Seattle's first drive of the second half. The Seahawks are all but out of the NFC playoff picture at 4-8, but Wilson will likely go down slinging, beginning with a Week 14 tilt against the Texans.

George Kittle

George Kittle

TE | SF

Massive day in Seattle

Kittle caught nine of 12 targets for 181 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

With Deebo Samuel (groin) sidelined, it was Kittle who stepped up and re-established himself as Jimmy Garoppolo's top option in the passing game, setting season highs for catches, targets and receiving yards while producing only his second 100-yard effort of the year. The touchdowns were nothing new for the star tight end, however, as he's found the end zone five times in five games since returning to action from a calf injury. He'll look to keep his momentum going in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Javonte Williams

RB | DEN

Top offensive player on SNF

Williams rushed 23 times for 102 yards and corralled six of nine targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-9 loss to Kansas City.

Melvin Gordon (hip) missed his first game of the season, opening the door for Williams to shine on the national stage. The 2021 second-round pick set a season high of 178 total yards while dominating the backfield touches (29 of 34). Williams has been a solid fantasy contributor while splitting time with Gordon this year, but he finally got to show the world that he can handle a lead-back role -- at least for one week. Gordon's status for next Sunday's matchup against the Lions is unclear at the moment, but Williams would see a significant boost in value if he was the Broncos' lone back next week. If Gordon does suit up, both players will have appeal in a favorable matchup against Detroit's shoddy defense.

Brandon Aiyuk

Brandon Aiyuk

WR | SF

Only three catches Sunday

Aiyuk caught three of six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

While he posted decent numbers, Aiyuk wasn't able to take advantage of the absence of Deebo Samuel (groin) to have a breakout, as instead George Kittle was the one who put together a monster performance. Aiyuk has compiled a 29-391-2 line on 38 targets over the last six games, giving him a fairly solid floor heading into a Week 14 tilt against the Bengals.

Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell

RB | SF

Finds end zone in loss

Mitchell carried the ball 22 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught all three of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

He didn't have a lot of success against a motivated Seattle front seven, with his longest run going for only nine yards, but Mitchell still salvaged his day with a two-yard TD in the first quarter. He also briefly left the game in the second half to be checked for a concussion, but he was able to return to action. Mitchell has seen huge volume in his last three games, amassing 290 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 76 carries, and the Niners will likely lean heavily on the rookie again in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo

QB | SF

Mistake-prone in Sunday's loss

Garoppolo completed 20 of 30 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

The third quarter was a nightmare for Garoppolo. Not only was he sacked for a safety, he also threw his second pick of the day on the Niners' subsequent possession and saw it returned into San Francisco territory to set up the winning TD for Seattle. The 30-year-old still tossed multiple touchdowns for the fourth time in the last five games while falling just shy of his fourth 300-yard performance of the year, but Garoppolo may need to be sharper in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Zay Jones

Zay Jones

WR | LV

Three catches against Washington

Jones caught three of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

He and Bryan Edwards put up nearly identical numbers, but both took a back seat to another 100-yard performance by Hunter Renfrow. Jones has seen an uptick in volume the last two weeks, posting an 8-80-0 line on 12 targets as the Raiders scramble to plug the holes in their passing game, and his new role gives him some modest upside in Week 14 against Kansas City.

Bryan Edwards

Bryan Edwards

WR | LV

Three grabs in loss

Edwards caught three of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Even with Derek Carr running out of healthy receiving options, Edwards still didn't see a large role in the offense, although his five targets were his highest volume since Week 5. The second-year wideout can still find himself on the end of the occasional big play, but he otherwise has little fantasy appeal heading into a Week 14 clash with Kansas City.

Hunter Renfrow

Hunter Renfrow

WR | LV

Tops century mark again

Renfrow caught nine of 10 targets for 102 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

The third-year slot man continues to reap the benefits of being the only healthy receiving option Derek Carr trusts, as Renfrow hit triple digits in yards for the second straight game. Even if Darren Waller (knee) is able to return to action, Renfrow should remain very busy in his new No. 1 role against Kansas City in Week 14.

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs

RB | LV

Big day as pass catcher

Jacobs carried the ball 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown and caught all nine of his targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

He tied Hunter Renfrow for the team lead in receptions, as Derek Carr didn't show a lot of trust in any of his other options through the air, and Jacobs' one-yard TD plunge in the fourth quarter set the Raiders up to potentially tie the game at 14-14, but they weren't able to cash in a two-point conversion. The running back has reached 90 scrimmage yards with a touchdown in back-to-back games, giving him plenty of momentum heading into a Week 14 battle with Kansas City.

Derek Carr

Derek Carr

QB | LV

Held in check Sunday

Carr completed 28 of 38 passes for 249 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

While it was a reasonably efficient performance, Carr failed to throw a TD for only the second time all season, and his passing yardage total was also his lowest since that Week 5 dud. The veteran quarterback struggled with a lack of reliable targets -- Hunter Renfrow and Josh Jacobs combined to haul in 18 of his completions -- and that's an issue that isn't likely to improve much in Week 14 against Kansas City.

Adam Humphries

Adam Humphries

WR | WAS

Four catches against Raiders

Humphries caught four of five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders.

The veteran slot man wound up leading all Washington wideouts in catches and receiving yards on a sluggish day for the team's passing game. Humphries hasn't reached 40 receiving yards since Week 5 and is still looking for his first TD of the season, giving him limited appeal heading into a Week 14 clash with the Cowboys.

Terry McLaurin

Terry McLaurin

WR | WAS

Quiet in Sunday's win

McLaurin caught three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders.

The Washington passing game didn't have much success, particularly the wideouts -- tight end Logan Thomas (knee) led the team in receiving yards, while running back Antonio Gibson led in catches. The performance was the worst of the season for McLaurin, who will look to rebound in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Antonio Gibson

Antonio Gibson

RB | WAS

Tops 100 scrimmage yards Sunday

Gibson carried the ball 23 times for 88 yards and caught five of six targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders.

He was the only Washington player to reach even 50 scrimmage yards on the day, and he capped his performance with a four-yard TD catch early in the fourth quarter. Gibson has piled up 358 rushing yards, 72 receiving yards and three total touchdowns in four games since Washington's bye, giving him plenty of momentum heading into a Week 14 clash with the Cowboys.

Taylor Heinicke

Taylor Heinicke

QB | WAS

Tosses two TDs in win

Heinicke completed 23 of 30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders.

He also gained 10 yards on three carries. Heinicke and the Washington offense didn't have a lot of success moving the football, but the QB was able to convert a couple red-zone trips with scores to Logan Thomas (knee) and Antonio Gibson. It's only the second time in the last eight games Heinicke has tossed multiple TDs, and he may need to be productive again in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake

RB | LV

Diagnosed with broken ankle

Drake broke his ankle in Sunday's loss to Washington and will miss the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Drake's leg was rolled up on when he was tackled on his third touch of the day, and his injury will wind up costing him the rest of the campaign. With Drake unavailable the rest of the way, Jalen Richard will likely pick up his work on passing downs when he comes off the COVID-19 list, and Peyton Barber could also see more work when starter Josh Jacobs needs a breather.

Devontae Booker

Devontae Booker

RB | NYG

Gets 10 touches

Booker rushed the ball six times for 36 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins. He added four receptions for 18 yards.

Booker accounted for six carries as opposed to Saquon Barkley's 11, and he earned double-digit touches for the first time since Barkley's return to the field. He was effective as both a rusher and receiver, as he picked up gains of 17 and 13 yards on the ground as well multiple receptions of eight yards through the air. Booker isn't likely to see his workload increase heavily unless Barkley is forced to the sideline, though he remains the clear backup to stash for the Giants.

Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew

QB | PHI

Accurate in win

Minshew completed 20 of his 25 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sundays 33-18 win over the Jets.

Minshew drew the spot start with Jalen Hurts (ankle) inactive and led the Eagles offense to an efficient performance. He ended the first half having completed 14 of his 15 pass attempts for 188 yards and two touchdowns, finding the end zone on completions of 36 and 25 yards. Despite the strong effort, his production was curtailed in the second half by game script as the Eagles relied heavily on the run to maintain their lead. Even with this impressive effort, Minshew will likely be limited to this lone start because Hurts will have the team's bye in Week 14 to allow his ankle to heal.

Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins

WR | BAL

Notches first TD of season

Watkins posted four catches (on six targets) for 39 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 20-19 loss at Pittsburgh.

Watkins wasn't even targeted until the Ravens' first offensive play of the second half, and three of his receptions occurred on the team's final possession, including a six-yard score with 12 seconds remaining. Per usual, he's produced mostly misses in his nine appearances this season, with zero TDs prior to Sunday and just two outings with more than 50 yards. Watkins is no better than third in the passing game pecking order in Baltimore behind Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown, which often isn't reliable in a run-heavy scheme.

Marquise Brown

Marquise Brown

WR | BAL

Sees seven targets Sunday

Brown reeled in five of seven targets for 55 yards during Sunday's 20-19 defeat in Pittsburgh.

Brown broke a streak of four straight games with double-digit targets, seeing his fewest since Week 6. Additionally, his stretch without a touchdown extended to four contests after he notched six in seven games prior to the Ravens' bye. Brown already has attained career highs in catches and yards, and his next target will match his number (100) from a full 16-game slate last season. He'll seek a more fruitful outing next Sunday during a road jaunt to Cleveland.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Has high ankle sprain

Thielen suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to Detroit and will undergo further testing Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It sounds unlikely that he'll be able to play Thursday against Pittsburgh. With news that he suffered a high ankle sprain, he could be out multiple games.

Devonta Freeman

Devonta Freeman

RB | BAL

Tallies 97 yards from scrimmage

Freeman took 14 carries for 52 yards and one touchdown and recorded five catches (on eight targets) for 45 yards during Sunday's 20-19 defeat at Pittsburgh.

Since the Ravens' Week 8 bye, Freeman has tallied double-digit rushes in five consecutive contests, averaging 13.8 for 53.4 yards per game. During that same span, all other Baltimore backs averaged 7.2 carries per game. Clearly, Freeman is getting the overwhelming share of RB work, and he supplemented his production on the ground with a season-high receiving mark. He'll look to keep it up next Sunday during a road matchup with the Browns.

Logan Thomas

Logan Thomas

TE | WAS

Likely done for season

Thomas "likely" tore his ACL and MCL during Sunday's victory over the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Thomas will undergo more tests on his knee when his team returns home from Sunday's away game, but the initial reports about his injury are not promising. Should Thomas be done for the season, Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) and John Bates will split the bulk of the work at the tight end spot in some fashion.

Mark Andrews

Mark Andrews

TE | BAL

Totals four catches Sunday

Andrews caught four of nine targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 20-19 loss in Pittsburgh.

It was a modest showing for one of Lamar Jackson's favorite targets, but Andrews still recorded at least four receptions and 50-plus yards for the 10th time in 12 chances this season. Unfortunately for Andrews, Jackson managed just one TD -- it went to Sammy Watkins with 12 seconds left -- and the quarterback's ensuing two-point conversion attempt slipped through the tight end's fingers. With a visit to the Browns on tap next Sunday, Andrews will look to replicate the line (4-65-1 on 10 targets) from the team's first matchup with its division rival from one week ago.

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson

QB | BAL

Modest day at the office

Jackson completed 23 of 37 passes for 253 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 20-19 loss at Pittsburgh. He added eight carries for 55 yards.

Jackson and the Ravens offense marched right down the field on the opening possession of the game, but when faced with a third down at the Steelers' 10-yard line he incurred heavy pressure from an unblocked T.J. Watt and heaved a throw into the end zone that was easily picked off by Minkah Fitzpatrick. After combining for 18 interceptions through his first three seasons, Jackson already is up to 13 through 11 games, which ranks second in the NFL to Joe Burrow's 14. Jackson salvaged his day with a six-yard scoring strike with 12 seconds remaining, but his subsequent two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete. He'll aim to bounce back next Sunday at Cleveland.

Kenneth Gainwell

Kenneth Gainwell

RB | PHI

Takes advantage of opportunity

Gainwell carried the ball 12 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets. He added five receptions for 33 yards.

Gainwell worked as the backup to Miles Sanders with Jordan Howard (knee) inactive and Boston Scott (illness) seemingly not at full strength. As a result, he saw the second-highest carry total of his career and had by far his most productive day on the ground in terms of total yards. The highlight of his performance came late in the second quarter when he reached the end zone on an 18-yard scamper during which he ducked through several defenders. Gainwell also tallied multiple receptions for the second consecutive game, and he's combined to record eight catches for 86 yards in that span. The Eagles may prefer the veteran combination of Howard and Scott behind Sanders in the backfield moving forward, but Gainwell was impressive with his opportunity Sunday.

Marlon Humphrey

Marlon Humphrey

DB | BAL

Expected to miss rest of season

Humphrey "is suspected to be out for the season with a shoulder injury" suffered in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Ravens have been mum about Humphrey's status while awaiting the results of an MRI, but early indications are the injury he picked up in Week 13 will sideline him for the rest of the campaign. The Ravens were already down a number of corners, and it now appears they will be without their best one as well.

Zach Wilson

Zach Wilson

QB | NYJ

Three total touchdowns in defeat

Wilson completed 23 of 38 pass attempts for 226 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles. He also rushed three times for zero yards and one touchdown.

Wilson set new career-high marks in pass attempts and total touchdowns. Though he averaged only 5.9 yards per attempt, Wilson managed to connect for a pair of short touchdown throws coming from three and one yards away. He found the end zone on a third occasion on a quarterback sneak late in the first quarter to record the second rushing touchdown of his career. Though Wilson is still inconsistent and mistake-prone, he did manage to distribute the ball well to key playmakers on the team such as Elijah Moore and Jamison Crowder. In spite of the loss, there were positives to take away from his performance heading into a Week 14 matchup against New Orleans.

Jamison Crowder

Jamison Crowder

WR | NYJ

Tallies four receptions

Crowder recorded four receptions on six targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.

After recording only one target on one reception in Week 12, Crowder rebounded to finish second on the team in targets, receptions and yards against the Eagles. He likely benefited from Corey Davis being hobbled, as Davis left late in the game after apparently aggravating his groin injury. Crowder has now recorded at least four receptions in seven of his nine games this season, giving him a relatively safe floor of production regardless of who works as the team's quarterback.

Alex Collins

Alex Collins

RB | SEA

Should be available next week

Head coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's victory over the 49ers that Collins (abdomen) should be able to play in next week's game against the Texans, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Collins sat out Sunday for the first time since Week 1, but that could be the extent of his absence, as Carroll added that the running back "needed a week off." Collins was expected to work behind at least Adrian Peterson and possibly another back or two had he suited up Sunday, so if he does return in Week 14 it seems unlikely it will be as the starter.

Kenny Golladay

Kenny Golladay

WR | NYG

Plays through injury

Golladay recorded three receptions on five targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins.

Golladay got off to a fast start, as he recorded all three of his receptions by the team's first drive of the second quarter. However, he wasn't able to retake the field until early in the second half after he suffered a rib injury. After the game, Golladay told the media that he underwent X-rays that revealed no fractures to his ribs, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. While it appears that he avoided serious injury, it will be worth monitoring Golladay's practice status heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers.

Marvin Jones Jr.

Marvin Jones Jr.

WR | JAX

Held to two catches

Jones caught two passes for 11 yards on three targets against the Rams on Sunday.

It's been a difficult season for Jones and the Jaguars offense, and this matchup was one of the tougher ones on their schedule. Disappointing as it might be, Jones' numbers from Sunday can't be called surprising. While it's best to not get hopes too high with any component of the Jacksonville passing game, a Week 14 matchup with the Titans is probably more favorable than the clash against the Rams was.

Trevor Lawrence

Trevor Lawrence

QB | JAX

Another bad game

Lawrence completed 16 of 28 passes for 145 yards against the Rams on Sunday.

Lawrence and the Jaguars offense tend to struggle even against defenses worse than this one, so a dreary outcome was to be expected against the Rams. Similarly, there's not much reason to hope for anything good when Lawrence and the Jaguars face the Titans in Week 14, though the matchup is arguably more favorable than this week's.

Jeff Wilson Jr.

Jeff Wilson Jr.

RB | SF

Exits with injury

Wilson exited Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with an unspecified injury, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

It's not exactly clear when Wilson picked up the injury, but it likely contributed to him receiving zero touches in Sunday's contest. More about Wilson's status should be known when head coach Kyle Shanahan provides another update Monday.

Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa

QB | MIA

Guides Dolphins to victory

Tagovailoa completed 30 of his 41 pass attempts for 244 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants.

Tagovailoa reached 40 pass attempts for the third time this season and for the first time since Week 7. He put up a disappointing yardage total by averaging only 6.0 yards per attempt despite being accurate with his passes. That was a product of largely working in short areas of the field, as he had only one completion of more than 20 yards. However, Tagovailoa salvaged his performance with a pair of touchdowns, one from five yards away and the other from two. Tagovailoa has proven to have a safe floor of production in recent weeks, though he has topped 300 passing yards only once on the campaign.

Carlos Hyde

Carlos Hyde

RB | JAX

Sees playing time boost

Hyde ran for 24 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Rams on Sunday.

Hyde took over the Jaguars backfield for a time following a first quarter fumble by starter James Robinson, though Hyde was less effective from scrimmage (23 yards on 10 touches) than Robinson (35 yards on nine touches). Hyde also lost his own fumble, so the Jaguars gained nothing by making the switch. Robinson is a better player than Hyde, so Hyde should normally get the scraps between the two, but Sunday's bleak showing from Jacksonville is a reminder of the team's futility.

Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool

WR | PIT

Tallies 52 receiving yards

Claypool hauled in two of three targets for 52 yards while rushing once for two yards in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

Claypool drew a season-low three targets in Sunday's matchup, but he had a 40-yard reception early in the fourth quarter, which was the longest play of the game by either team. The 23-year-old hasn't had the same volume that Diontae Johnson has generated this season, but he's logged at least 40 yards from scrimmage in each of his last five appearances. During that time, he's secured 17 of 30 targets for 302 yards while rushing seven times for 32 yards. He'll have a very favorable matchup against the Vikings in Week 14.

James Robinson

James Robinson

RB | JAX

Briefly pulled after fumble

Robinson ran for 24 yards on eight carries against the Rams on Sunday.

Robinson lost a fumble in the first quarter and saw his playing time mostly cease in favor of Carlos Hyde, who ran for 24 yards and one touchdown on nine carries while losing a fumble of his own. The idea that Robinson should get pulled for one mistake, especially in favor of a player like Hyde, is the sort of ridiculousness that would barely seem possible with any other organization, but the Urban Meyer Jaguars are innovators in failure, and by now it's difficult to see how that changes until new people are in charge. After the game Meyer tried to evade responsibility when speaking to the press, saying on the one hand that Robinson's playing time was the prerogative of running backs coach Bernie Parmalee while at another point implying Robinson's foot and heel injuries might have affected his playing time. It will be worth monitoring Robinson's practice activity throughout the week, but if healthy he'll likely be the best player on the Jaguars offense as they take on the Titans in Week 14.

Throws for 236 yards

Roethlisberger completed 21 of 31 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

Roethlisberger bounced back in Week 13 after he threw two interceptions in last week's blowout loss to the Bengals. The 39-year-old wasn't picked off by the Ravens' defense Sunday, and he led a late drive in the fourth quarter to put the Steelers up by seven points with 1:48 remaining. In the three games since Roethlisberger missed the Steelers' Week 10 matchup against the Lions due to a positive COVID-19 test result, he's completed 73 of 116 passes for 772 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. Roethlisberger has reportedly told those close to him that the 2021 season will be his final year in Pittsburgh, but he's been a fairly consistent fantasy option in his 18th professional season in spite of his limited upside due to his lack of rushing ability. He'll have another favorable matchup against the Vikings in Week 14.

DeVonta Smith

DeVonta Smith

WR | PHI

Held down again

Smith recorded two receptions on four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets.

Smith was limited by game script, as the Eagles took to the air only 25 times while playing with the lead for the majority of the contest. Even so, both Dallas Goedert and Kenneth Gainwell saw more targets than Smith, who has combined to post just four receptions on eight targets for 37 yards across his last two games. Smith will have the chance to regroup in an effort to return to his more productive ways as the Eagles head into their Week 14 bye.

Kalif Raymond

Kalif Raymond

WR | DET

Two catches against Minnesota

Raymond secured two of two targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Raymond saw a couple of targets in the first half but wasn't heard from again after that. Meanwhile, Amon-Ra St. Brown paced the team with 10 receptions on 12 targets for 86 yards while Josh Reynolds operated as the top perimeter option. Perhaps Raymond can become more productive as a tertiary threat going forward, but thus far he hasn't done much as a receiver since Reynolds came to town.

Zach Ertz

Zach Ertz

TE | ARI

Quiet in win

Ertz secured one of two targets for 10 yards in the Cardinals' 33-22 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Ertz and the rest of the pass-catching corps had a very quiet afternoon, with the returning Kyler Murray putting the ball up only 15 times. The veteran tight end's downturn notwithstanding, he's already proven an excellent fit in the Cardinals' offense, posting a 22-269-3 line on 29 targets in his first five games in Arizona prior to Sunday.

Tyler Higbee

Tyler Higbee

TE | LAR

Reliable underneath

Higbee caught five passes for 48 yards on six targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Higbee did his part to stabilize the Rams' passing game and move the chains Sunday, though the lack of explosiveness has proven a constant limitation in his box scores throughout the year. The 48 yards is his third-highest single-game yardage total of the season, with his highest mark being just 68 yards in Week 1. This usage tendency generally leaves Higbee dependent on touchdowns for useful fantasy point totals, but with just three on the year it's difficult to count on Higbee offsetting his modest yardage totals with scoring production. The Rams go to Arizona to face the Cardinals in Week 14, and in their Week 4 matchup Higbee caught four passes for 36 yards on six targets.

Brock Wright

TE | DET

Snags first career touchdown

Wright caught two of three targets for 28 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Running as the No. 2 tight end behind T.J. Hockenson, Wright took advantage of a Vikings defense without top linebackers Eric Kendricks or Anthony Barr to score his first career touchdown. However, he's caught a pass in just half of his first six career games since the undrafted tight end was first promoted from the practice squad in late October. Wright would need to build upon this performance in a big way in order to enter the fantasy conversation.

Diontae Johnson

Diontae Johnson

WR | PIT

Reaches end zone twice

Johnson secured eight of his 11 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-19 win over Baltimore.

Johnson continued to garner plenty of volume in Sunday's narrow victory, as he's now had double-digit targets in each of the last four games. Sunday's contest marked the first time this season that the 25-year-old reached the end zone multiple times, and his second touchdown came with 1:48 remaining in the game to help give Pittsburgh a seven-point lead. The 2019 third-rounder has topped 50 receiving yards in 10 of his first 11 appearances of the season, and he's hauled in 76 of 120 targets for 914 yards and six touchdowns. He'll have a very favorable matchup against the Vikings in Week 14.

Josh Reynolds

Josh Reynolds

WR | DET

Totals 69 yards

Reynolds caught four of seven targets for 69 yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Reynolds got open for a number of decent gains and ultimately finished third in targets behind T.J. Hockenson and rookie receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, who set season highs in nearly every receiving category. However, St. Brown primarily worked underneath whereas Reynolds again seemed like the top perimeter option. While the floor is low for any receiver in this poor Lions offense, Reynolds seems seems to be emerging as Detroit's highest-upside fantasy option outside of Hockenson and D'Andre Swift (shoulder).

Mike Davis

Mike Davis

RB | ATL

69 total yards, TD in loss

Davis rushed four times for 32 yards and a touchdown and brought in all four targets for 37 yards in the Falcons' 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Davis ceded clear lead-back duties to Cordarrelle Patterson, but he ended up turning in a much more efficient performance than he typically does with a bigger workload. The veteran also scored his first rushing touchdown since Week 5 on a nifty 17-yard scamper just after the midway point of the first quarter. Davis' rushing volume is difficult to predict week to week, but with a steady role in the passing game that includes three straight multi-catch efforts, he has value in deeper formats going into a Week 14 road battle against the Panthers.

Van Jefferson

Van Jefferson

WR | LAR

Works more underneath

Jefferson caught six passes for 41 yards and one touchdown on eight targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

To begin the year Jefferson operated as the Rams' by-default deep threat while Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods worked more underneath, but in light of Woods' season-ending injury and the addition of the more big-play oriented Odell Beckham it makes sense for the Rams to give Jefferson the old Woods role while Beckham takes up more of the downfield responsibilities. If that continues going forward then it could allow Jefferson to draw targets and thus receptions more reliably than he did to begin the year, even if he's generally regarded as the WR3 behind Kupp and Beckham.

Najee Harris

Najee Harris

RB | PIT

Tops 100 yards from scrimmage

Harris rushed 21 times for 71 yards while hauling in all five of his targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

Harris had been limited to just 96 yards from scrimmage on 28 touches across the last two weeks, but he had plenty of volume in Sunday's narrow victory. The rookie has now topped 20 carries in four of his six appearances since Pittsburgh's Week 7 bye, but he's averaged just 3.4 yards per carry during that time. He'll face a more favorable opponent during next week's matchup against Minnesota.

Finds end zone

Beckham caught two passes for 28 yards and one touchdown on five targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

The touchdown helped patch up Beckham's box score for his fantasy investors, but this qualifies as an ineffective game for the talented wideout. Beckham seems to have settled in as the Rams' primary deep threat, or at least that's how it worked against the Jaguars as Van Jefferson, previously the Rams' lead deep threat by default, ran more underneath by catching six passes for 41 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. If Beckham functions farthest downfield it might bring more big-play upside, but it also might make him more prone to cold stretches when the deep ball isn't landing. The Arizona pass rush figures to make Matthew Stafford get rid of the ball quickly in Week 14, so Beckham might need to get open in a hurry to draw targets regularly.

Tyler Boyd

Tyler Boyd

WR | CIN

Five grabs in lopsided loss

Boyd secured five of seven targets for 85 yards in the Bengals' 41-22 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

The veteran slot man made his presence felt during a game in which the Bengals had to pass plenty, checking in second in receiving yards behind Tee Higgins. Boyd now has at least four receptions in four of the last six contests, and Sunday's yardage tally was his highest since Week 4. Boyd heads into a Week 14 matchup against the 49ers with plenty of momentum.

Evan Engram

Evan Engram

TE | NYG

Makes four catches

Engram recorded four receptions on five targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins.

Engram was able to take advantage of several absences among the Giants' receiving corps to lead the team in receiving yards. He overcame a largely dysfunctional Giants offense to record four double-digit gains, ranging from 10 to 18 yards. Though he hasn't posted exceptional numbers, Engram has found a consistent role in the offense by recording at least three receptions in seven of his nine games this season.

Trenton Cannon

Trenton Cannon

RB | SF

In stable condition after scary hit

Cannon, who left Sunday's game in an ambulance after taking a knee to the head on the opening kickoff, "is in stable condition and will stay the night at the hospital," according to the 49ers' official Twitter account.

The inadvertent shot Cannon took to his head certainly looked scary, but fortunately he appears to have avoided a serious injury.

Active but doesn't play Sunday

Henderson (thigh) didn't play during Sunday's 37-7 win against the Jaguars.

Afterward, coach Sean McVay noted Henderson was available to the Rams offense, if needed, but game flow ultimately kept him on the sideline. It's no surprise as the game quickly turned into a blowout after halftime with Sony Michel running effectively in Henderson's place. Michel ended the contest with 24 carries for 121 yards and one touchdown and also gathered in three of four targets for eight yards. As the Rams prepare for a key divisional matchup with the Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Week 14, it'll be interesting to see whether Henderson can log more than the one limited session that he managed Friday on his injured thigh.

Cooper Kupp

Cooper Kupp

WR | LAR

Keeps rolling

Kupp caught eight passes for 129 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

The Rams' passing game was a bit sluggish in the first half, but quarterback Matthew Stafford caught fire in the second half by throwing one touchdown each to Kupp, Van Jefferson and Odell Beckham on the team's first three drives. It's a reminder that a player of Kupp's usage level and abilities can smash for his fantasy investors even in games during which the Rams' offense sputters at times. Kupp goes to Arizona in Week 14 to face the Cardinals -- the one defense that managed to contain him during his rampage of a 2021 season. He'll hope to fare better this time after catching just five passes for 64 yards on 13 targets in the Week 4 showdown.

Mike Gesicki

Mike Gesicki

TE | MIA

Tallies 11 targets

Gesicki recorded seven receptions on 11 targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants.

Gesicki kept pace with Jaylen Waddle in terms of targets, the first time since Week 3 that he's racked up double-digit opportunities. While he converted a high number of those looks into catches, Gesicki was largely limited to looks in the short areas of the field as his longest catch went for only 17 yards -- also marking his only double-digit gain on the day. Gesicki has been targeted inconsistently this season, though it's encouraging that he was so involved even with DeVante Parker (shoulder) back on the field.

Sony Michel

Sony Michel

RB | LAR

Effective in spot start

Michel ran for 121 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries and caught three passes for eight yards on four targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Darrell Henderson (thigh) sat out, leaving just Michel and undrafted rookie Mekhi Sargent (two carries for five yards) to suit up at running back for the Rams. The Jaguars unsurprisingly stood no chance in this game, and Michel was one of the main beneficiaries as he saw his usage spike upward against the vulnerable defense. That elevated usage was dependent on Henderson's absence, though, so if Henderson can play against Arizona in Week 14 then Michel will likely return to an abbreviated bench role.

Kyle Pitts

Kyle Pitts

TE | ATL

Four catches in loss

Pitts brought in four of seven targets for 48 yards in the Falcons' 30-17 loss to the Buccanneers on Sunday.

Pitts was a distant second to Russell Gage in receptions, receiving yards and targets in another modest performance. The athletic tight end hasn't topped 50 receiving yards since Week 10, a disappointment given the Falcons continue to operate without Calvin Ridley (personal) in the air attack. The rookie's next opportunity to snap out of his funk comes in Week 14 versus the Panthers on the road.

Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams

DB | SEA

Not returning Sunday

Adams (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Prior to his departure at the end of the first half, Adams compiled four tackles. The writing was on the wall when he eventually showed up on the sideline in the third quarter in street clothes, and the shoulder injury he sustained won't allow him to return. Adams' activity level in practice this week will be key to determining if he misses any additional time.

Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford

QB | LAR

Throws three touchdowns

Stafford completed 26 of 38 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Stafford started the game a bit slow but got hot in the second half, throwing one touchdown to each of Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham and Van Jefferson. The strong finish allowed Stafford to come through for his fantasy investors in a favorable matchup despite the slow start, but it would be nice to see Stafford throw a clean game from start to finish as the Rams prepare for a playoff run. Stafford will head to Arizona in Week 14 to face the Cardinals, an opponent he somewhat struggled against at home in Week 4 (26 of 41 for 280 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 37-20 loss).

Playing in Week 13

Edwards-Helaire (illness) is listed as active Sunday against the Broncos, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Edwards-Helaire was absent from Friday's practice due to an illness and entered the weekend with a questionable designation. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier Sunday that Edwards-Helaire participated in a walkthrough session Saturday and was slated to be available for Week 13 action, which has come to pass. In the five contests in which he's handled at least 45 percent of the Chiefs' offensive snaps this season, Edwards-Helaire has averaged 15.8 touches for 83.4 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring three total TDs.

DeVante Parker

DeVante Parker

WR | MIA

Five catches in return

Parker recorded five receptions on five targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants.

Parker was able to suit up for the first time since Week 8 after being placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. He finished fourth on the team with five targets, most notably working behind Albert Wilson. However, Parker made the most of his opportunities, getting looks in the short areas of the field and also converting a couple deep targets into receptions. Most importantly, Parker appears to have finished the game without any setbacks and can now focus on producing in Week 15 against the Jets after the team's bye.

Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell

RB | SF

Back in Sunday's game

Mitchell (head) returned to Sunday's contest at Seattle, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

After being examined for a possible concussion early in the fourth quarter, Mitchell returned for the 49ers' first possession of the period. He'll continue to operate as the team's lead runner.

Another big receiving day

Fournette rushed 13 times for 45 yards and secured seven of eight targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fournette found running room to be mostly at a premium against an active Falcons front, but he once again made an impact through the air. The veteran back tied with Mike Evans for second on the team in receptions and recorded his second receiving touchdown in as many games on a three-yard grab in the first quarter. Fournette's significant role as a receiver complements his fantasy value in games during which he's not as successful on the ground, and he's poised for another heavy overall workload in a Week 14 interconference battle against the Bills.

Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell

RB | SF

Being evaluated for head injury

Mitchell is under evaluation for a head injury during Sunday's game in Seattle, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Mitchell took an elbow to his helmet on a carry late in the third quarter on which he lost the ball. Ultimately, a fumble was overturned as his knee was down before the ball came loose, but the running back required immediate medical attention and went to the blue sideline tent to be examined. If he's unable to return, Mitchell will end Week 13 with 18 carries for 54 yards and one touchdown and two catches (on two targets) for seven yards. Jeff Wilson and JaMycal Hasty are the other healthy RBs on the 49ers' active roster.

Tevin Coleman

Tevin Coleman

RB | NYJ

Leads backfield again

Coleman carried the ball 11 times for 58 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles. He added three receptions for 19 yards.

Coleman was limited by game script, as the team attempted only 17 rushes on the day. Zach Wilson was the only other Jets' player to record multiple carries, leaving Coleman as the clear primary back once again. Despite the limited volume, he picked up chunk gains of 17 and 15 yards to account for the majority of his production. Coleman figures to have at least one more contest in the top role, as Michael Carter (ankle) is not eligible to return from injured reserve until Week 15.

Logan Thomas

Logan Thomas

TE | WAS

Injure knee, won't return Sunday

Thomas has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Las Vegas due to an ankle injury.

At the end of an Antonio Gibson eight-yard run in the fourth quarter, Thomas was seen laying on the turf and clutching at his knee. Thomas proceeded to walk slowly to the sideline with a member of Washington's training staff and quickly was deemed unable to return. He'll finish Week 13 with three catches (on five targets) for 48 yards and one touchdown.

Denzel Perryman

Denzel Perryman

LB | LV

Suffers ankle injury Sunday

Perryman sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's game versus Washington.

At the time of his departure in the fourth quarter, Perryman had 11 tackles, marking the 10th time in 12 games that he's reached double digits this season. With Nick Kwiatkoski already ruled out of this contest with an ankle issue of his own, the Raiders likely will turn to K.J. Wright at linebacker next to Cory Littleton.

A.J. Green

A.J. Green

WR | ARI

Limited to one catch

Green secured his only target for 14 yards in the Cardinals' 33-22 win over the Bears on Sunday.

The veteran wideout's sparse production wasn't necessarily an indictment on him, considering Kyler Murray threw only 15 times overall in his return from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury. Green has a pair of one-catch tallies in his last three games, but he and the rest of the pass-catching corps figure to be a lot busier in a critical Week 14 home Monday night clash with the Rams.

Jalen Guyton

Jalen Guyton

WR | LAC

First TD of 2021

Guyton caught all four of his targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.

Guyton made an impressive 44-yard catch against man coverage, coming down with a nifty jump ball for his first score of the 2021 season. The rarely utilized wide receiver also saw his most targets since Week 6, capitalizing on quarterback Justin Herbert's willingness to spread the ball around Sunday. Don't expect Guyton to emerge as a crucial target most weeks as the Chargers have become heavily dependent on a narrow target tree of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler.

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen

WR | LAC

Snares two touchdowns

Allen tallied four catches on eight targets for 34 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' 41-22 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

It's a bit disappointing that in Allen's first game with a touchdown since Week 8 he suddenly saw his fewest targets since mid-October, but he did see a team high in looks as quarterback Justin Herbert spread the ball around plenty. It'll be interesting to see the type of workload Allen will receive next week against a hapless Giants team that did not have starting quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) and also saw backup Mike Glennon leave Sunday's matchup with a concussion. Facing an opponent possibly down to its third-string signal caller entering Week 14, the Chargers offense, and by default Allen, could be utilized less against a suddenly toothless New York lineup.

Myles Gaskin

Myles Gaskin

RB | MIA

Stalls against Giants

Gaskin carried the ball 15 times for 44 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants. He added two receptions for five yards.

Gaskin continued to see plenty of volume, as he reached 15 total touches for the seventh consecutive game. However, he was unable to find the end zone, so his inefficiency finally caught up to him. Gaskin has averaged under four yards per carry in each of his last six contests, though four touchdowns in that span masked his otherwise poor performances. Despite the inefficiency, so long as Malcolm Brown (quadriceps) is unable to return to the field, Gaskin should continue to serve as the clear lead back in the Dolphins offense and thus have the chance to rack up production based on volume alone.

James Conner

James Conner

RB | ARI

Strong performance as lead back

Conner rushed 20 times for 75 yards and brought in both targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 33-22 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Once again serving in an unquestioned lead-back role, Conner turned in a solid workmanlike performance and topped off his fantasy performance with a 23-yard touchdown reception in the latter portion of the second quarter. Conner has now handled a 20-carry workload in three of the last four games, a span during which he's also recorded multiple grabs and contributed a pair of receiving touchdowns. Conner should once again have a significant role through both the ground and air in a critical NFC West Monday night showdown against the Rams in Week 14.

T.J. Hockenson

T.J. Hockenson

TE | DET

Snags another touchdown

Hockenson caught four of eight targets for 49 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Hockenson found the painted area for the second straight week as his up-and-down usage continues. Through 12 games, the tight end has seen eight or more targets eight times while seeing three or less targets in the remaining four games. If D'Andre Swift (shoulder) remains sidelined in Week 14, fantasy managers will need to hope that Hockenson doesn't get schemed out of the game plan by a decent Denver secondary.

Mike Williams

Mike Williams

WR | LAC

Back over 100 yards receiving

Williams caught five of seven targets for 110 yards in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.

Williams' 47-yard reception marked just his second 40-plus yard catch since Week 10. Not coincidentally, Sunday's game was also just the second since early October during which the big-bodied target went over 90 receiving yards in a contest. While his second half of the season has been devoid of touchdowns, it's encouraging to see Williams rack up at least six targets in four consecutive games after a near month-long stretch during which he averaged just five. Williams will look to build on the momentum when the Chargers take on the struggling Giants in Week 14.

Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams

DB | SEA

Injures shoulder Sunday

Adams suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Adams made an early departure at the end of the first half and didn't rejoin his teammates after intermission. If he's unable to return, he'll end Week 13 action with four tackles, which would mark his second fewest in a game this season.

Ja'Marr Chase

Ja'Marr Chase

WR | CIN

Five catches in loss

Chase secured five of eight targets for 52 yards in the Bengals' 41-22 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

Chase saw fellow wideouts Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd outshine him on the afternoon, but he still put together a solid fantasy performance, especially from a PPR perspective. The standout rookie is in a bit of a slump since a stellar 8-201-1 effort against the Ravens in Week 7, posting no more than six receptions or Sunday's 52 receiving yards since that game. His next opportunity to bump up his production comes in a Week 14 home battle against the 49ers.

Austin Ekeler

Austin Ekeler

RB | LAC

Two fumbles in win

Ekeler carried the ball 14 times for 59 yards and a touchdown and caught all five of his targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals. He also lost two fumbles.

Ekeler uncharacteristically fumbled twice, losing control of the ball immediately after securing receptions in both the second and third quarter. Those miscues lessened what should have been another stellar fantasy day considering the multi-talented back scored a touchdown in his fourth consecutive game. Ekeler has admitted this season's additional workload has been challenging, but with the Chargers struggling to find any sort of reliable change-of-pace option, expect the 26-year-old to continue shouldering the heavy majority of the load out of the backfield.

Elijah Moore

Elijah Moore

WR | NYJ

Returns to double-digit targets

Moore recorded six receptions on 12 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.

Moore got off to a quick start, as he hauled in his fifth career touchdown -- all of which have come in his last five games -- on the team's first possession. He went on to lead New York in targets, with his 12 looks doubling up the next most-targeted player on the team. Besides the touchdown, Moore also picked up lengthy receptions of 29, 18 and 15 yards. This performance was particularly significant for Moore's potential to produce moving forward, as he had found the majority of his previous success this season with backup quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Mike White (illness). That Moore produced with Zach Wilson under center offers optimism that he will produce in Week 15 against New Orleans and beyond.

Godwin Igwebuike

Godwin Igwebuike

RB | DET

Three touches sans Swift

Igwebuike rushed twice for eight yards while catching one of two targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

Igwebuike saw an uptick in offensive snaps with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) sidelined, but he didn't do much before the final minutes of the game. He'll remain irrelevant in most fantasy formats even if Swift remains sidelined in Week 14 against Denver.

Mike Evans

Mike Evans

WR | TB

Yard short of century mark

Evans secured seven of 10 targets for 99 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Chris Godwin stole the spotlight with a 15-143 tally, but Evans turned in an impressive performance by any measure in his own right. The multi-time Pro Bowler checked in second across the board to Godwin on the stat sheet, producing his best reception total since Week 4 and highest yardage tally since Week 5. Evans will have a thorny challenge in a Week 14 home battle against the Bills, although the absence of Tre'Davious White (knee) for Buffalo could help make for a more palatable matchup.

Tyler Conklin

Tyler Conklin

TE | MIN

Nine targets in loss

Conklin caught seven of nine targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 29-27 loss to Detroit.

The nine targets set a new highwater mark for Conklin this season, which was due in large part to the absence of Adam Thielen (ankle), who left the contest early in the first quarter. The 25-year-old's seven receptions also tied his season high this year, and he figures to see a small uptick in attention from Kirk Cousins for as long as Thielen is sidelined. Conklin would make for a strong bye week fill-in option Thursday against the Steelers if the Vikings are forced to play without their No. 2 wideout.

Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski

TE | TB

Pair of scores in win

Gronkowski secured four of eight targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Gronkowski's first two receptions went for scores, with the legendary tight end finding the end zone from 27 and 11 yards out. Gronkowski is now up to six touchdown receptions on the campaign, leaving him with plenty of opportunities to eclipse the eight he garnered with the Patriots in 2017, which is currently his best total of the last five seasons. The big tight end should continue to see an uptick in targets for the duration of Antonio Brown's suspension, and he could have a particularly sizable role in a Week 14 home showdown against a Bills team adept at limiting receiver production.

One catch against Dallas

Callaway caught one of four passes for 13 yards during Thursday's 27-17 loss to Dallas.

Callaway continues to command a large snap share and subsequently run a lot of routes, but the Tennessee product has topped five targets in only three games this year. This lowly workload has made him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, and things are unlikely to get better with the dual-threat Taysom Hill (finger) playing through a torn ligament in a finger on his throwing hand.

Mike Glennon

Mike Glennon

QB | NYG

Concussed in loss

Glennon was diagnosed with a concussion after Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Glennon finished the game, so it's unclear exactly when the injury occured. However, he'll now have to clear protocol if he hopes to start under center in a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers. As for his Week 13 performance, Glennon struggled to get the offense moving, as he completed only 23 of his 44 passes for 187 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Despite taking to the air frequently, Glennon managed to complete only one pass of 20 yards or more while also failing to lead the team to any touchdowns. Whether Glennon or Jake Fromm is under center in Week 14 against the Chargers, it will be difficult to trust any Giants skill-position players besides Saquon Barkley given the current state of their offense.

Russell Gage

Russell Gage

WR | ATL

Standout effort in loss

Gage brought in 11 of 12 targets for 130 yards in the Falcons' 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.

The veteran lit up his old team repeatedly throughout the afternoon, leading to career-best reception and receiving yardage totals. Gage has been productive in multiple games this season, but he's also had a trio of catch-less efforts that help render him one of the more unpredictable wideouts around the league. Nevertheless, Gage now has posted at least five grabs in three consecutive contests, giving him plenty of momentum ahead of a Week 14 visit to the Panthers for an NFC South clash.

K.J. Osborn

K.J. Osborn

WR | MIN

Steps up in place of hurt starter

Osborn had four receptions (seven targets) for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

Starter Adam Thielen (ankle) was forced out of the contest early in the first quarter, opening the door for Osborn to get more involved in the offense. The 24-year-old produced a solid fantasy line, but it wasn't even his best performance this season despite getting extra run. Osborn could continue to see increased usage if Thielen is forced to miss any time with his sprained ankle. The veteran wideout is currently listed as questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Steelers, but the short week of rest could result in Osborn's first start of the year. He would carry deep-league appeal in the event Thielen is unable to suit up.

Rushing success in tough matchup

Patterson rushed 13 times for 78 yards and brought in three of five targets for 18 yards in the Falcons' 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also recovered a fumble.

Patterson surprisingly found some success against the Buccaneers' typically impenetrable run defense, though a bulk of his production came on a 39-yard run. Nevertheless, it was Patterson's saving grace from a fantasy perspective and served as his second-highest rushing yardage tally of the season. The versatile veteran's next opportunity to wreak havoc on a defense comes in a Week 14 visit to the division-rival Panthers.

Tre'Quan Smith

Tre'Quan Smith

WR | NO

Does little with seven targets

Smith caught two of seven targets for 15 yards during Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Smith and Marquez Callaway again paced Saints wideouts in snaps, but both were outdone by Deonte Harris, who logged just 40 percent of the snaps but caught four of eight targets for 96 yards and a score. However, Smith easily could have had a better stat line if his passes were more catchable -- Taysom Hill (hand) tore a ligament in the middle finder on his throwing hand early in the first quarter and played through it the rest of the game. Considering the dual-threat Hill wasn't the greatest passer to begin with, a throwing-hand injury make his pass catchers even less desirable fantasy assets.

Matt Ryan

Matt Ryan

QB | ATL

Strong numbers in loss

Ryan completed 30 of 41 passes for 297 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Falcons' 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed three times for two yards and committed three fumbles, recovering two.

Working with a Calvin Ridley-less receiving corps once again, Ryan made the best of what he had to work with by connecting with Russell Gage on 11 occasions for 130 yards. The rest of Atlanta's pass-catching crew turned in modest numbers, but the sum total was enough to leave Ryan just short of his fifth 300-yard effort of the season. The yardage total was still a very welcome sight for fantasy managers after Ryan had failed to top 190 yards in any of his three previous games, and he'll look to keep up the momentum in a Week 14 visit to the struggling Panthers.

Ty Montgomery

Ty Montgomery

WR | NO

Eight touches in Kamara's absence

Montgomery rushed four times for 21 yards while catching four of seven targets for nine yards during Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Montgomery saw a heightened workload with Alvin Kamara (knee) on the shelf. However, Mark Ingram operated as the clear lead back and Montgomery wasn't able to do much with the touches he got. Should Kamara remain unavailable in Week 14 against the Jets, Montgomery would only be relevant as an emergency option in deep PPR formats.

Saquon Barkley

Saquon Barkley

RB | NYG

Held to 74 total yards

Barkley recorded 11 carries for 55 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins. He added six receptions on nine targets for 19 yards.

The Giants ran the ball only 17 times while taking to the air on 44 occasions. As a result, Barkley's primary opportunity to produce came through the air, and he was able to rack up six receptions for the third time this season. He also displayed some burst as a runner, turning in two rushes that went for double-digit yards. His longest carry went for a gain of 23, which was only his third rush of 20 yards or more on the campaign. On a bit more of an optimistic note, Barkley has earned 17 total touches in consecutive games heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers.

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins

QB | MIN

Carves through DET secondary

Cousins completed 30 of 40 pass attempts for 340 yards and two touchdowns while losing a fumble in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

Cousins led what appeared to be a game-winning drive near the end of the fourth quarter, but he was forced to helplessly watch Minnesota's defense cough up the lead as time expired. Despite the embarrassing loss to the no-longer win-less Lions, Cousins was able to continue his recent trend of premier play from the pocket. The 32-year-old is quietly stringing together one of his finest seasons as a pro, completing 69 percent of his passes for 3,353 yards and a sparkling 25:3 TD:INT ratio through 12 games. The Steelers will provide a stiffer test compared to the Lions from a defensive perspective, but Cousins remains a viable option in all formats heading in this week's Thursday Night Football matchup.

Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert

QB | LAC

Sensational first half

Herbert completed 26 of 35 passes for 317 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

The Chargers defense took over in the first quarter, setting the stage for Herbert to toss three first-half touchdowns in what appeared to be an easy win before typical Los Angeles shenanigans complicated matters somewhat. Herbert's lone interception was essentially fluky as it came on a gorgeous deep ball that simply slid off Josh Palmer's hands into the defending corner's flailing arms. The second-year quarterback now has three straight games with at least 300 yards passing and two-plus touchdowns and figures to be in line for another solid performance next week against the struggling Giants.

Tee Higgins

Tee Higgins

WR | CIN

Stellar numbers in loss

Higgins secured nine of 14 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 41-22 loss to the Chargers on Sunday. He also tweaked his ankle during the contest but isn't expected to miss any time, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The second-year wideout was one of the few offensive bright spots for the Bengals in a disappointing home loss, and his athletic, leaping 29-yard touchdown grab midway through the second quarter kickstarted what would be an unsuccessful comeback from a 24-0 deficit. Higgins now has back-to-back 100-yard efforts after not accomplishing the feat in the first eight games of the campaign, and assuming his ankle issue is as benign as he assesses, he should be in for another prominent role in a Week 14 home interconference clash with the 49ers.

Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow

QB | CIN

Managers finger injury in loss

Burrow completed 24 of 40 passes for 300 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the Bengals' 41-22 loss to the Chargers on Sunday. He also rushed once for six yards and lost a fumble, the latter a first-quarter play on which he suffered a a dislocated pinkie finger, Marisa Contipelli of the team's official site reports.

Burrow's injury ultimately didn't lead to a subpar fantasy day by any stretch, even though the two interceptions were certainly a blemish. However, the 2020 first overall pick hit the 300-yard mark for the third time this season and extended his streak with at least one touchdown pass to three games when he connected with Tee Higgins on a 29-yard scoring toss to start a comeback from 24-0. Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports Burrow stated after the game the injury will not cause him to miss any games, "unless it somehow gets worse." Assuming that's indeed the case, Burrow will be under center aiming to help the Bengals get over this disastrous home loss in a Week 14 interconference showdown against the visiting 49ers.

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake

RB | LV

Exits Sunday's game

Drake injured his ankle during Sunday's game against Washington.

With Drake ruled out for the remainder of the contest and Jalen Richard (reserve/COVID-19 list) unavailable, Peyton Barber is on hand to spell lead back Josh Jacobs. Prior to his injury, Drake logged one carry for no gain and caught one of his two targets for eight yards.

Dallas Goedert

Dallas Goedert

TE | PHI

Delivers against Jets

Goedert recorded six catches on six targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets.

Goedert came alive with Gardner Minshew under center, matching his highest catch total of the season. He particularly delivered early in the game by accounting for Philadelphia's first two touchdowns of the game with receptions of 36 and 25 yards. Given that the Eagles were up by two scores for much of the second half, Minshew took to the air only 10 times in the final two quarters. That limited Goedert's potential to further deliver, though he still managed top 100 yards for the first time this season. The Eagles now head into a Week 14 bye, so Jalen Hurts (ankle) has the potential to be back under center by the next time Goedert takes the field.

Joe Mixon

Joe Mixon

RB | CIN

Hurts neck in Week 13 loss

Mixon revealed after Sunday's 41-22 loss to the Chargers that he hurt his neck during the game, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The running back was still able to log 19 carries for 54 yards and a TD (with a lost fumble) in the contest, but it will still be worth monitoring his status as next Sunday's game against the 49ers approaches. If Mixon ends up missing any practice time, Samaje Perine would be next up for the team's running back reps.

Produces strong results as expected

Mattison rushed 22 times for 90 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 34 yards in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

Mattison got the start in place of the injured Dalvin Cook (shoulder), doing his best impression of Minnesota's star tailback. The 23-year-old is now averaging 149.3 combined yards and two total touchdowns in the three starts he has made this season, making him a must-roster player for any games Cook is forced to miss. While the latter was technically listed as questionable leading up to Sunday's tilt, initial reports projected Cook to miss two games. The Vikings are slated to take on the Steelers on Thursday, so Mattison could get another start with such a quick turnaround.

Joey Bosa

Joey Bosa

DL | LAC

Clears concussion protocol

Coach Brandon Staley said Bosa (head) cleared concussion protocols and was held out of Sunday's win over the Chargers as a precaution, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bosa exited the game in the first half and was ultimately held out due to concerns over the two concussions he suffered last year. His status for Week 14 is uncertain, but it's certainly a good sign that he has avoided another concussion. He recorded one tackle prior to his exit.

Jermar Jefferson

Jermar Jefferson

RB | DET

Small role in Swift's absence

Jefferson rushed five times for 18 yards while failing to catch his lone target during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

Jefferson technically saw an expanded role with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) sidelined, but he still took a clear backseat to Jamaal Williams, who commanded 18 touches. While it's possible that Swift misses another game in Week 14 against the Broncos, do not bet on Detroit splitting the backfield reps between Jefferson and Williams like they do between a Williams and a healthy Swift.

Jaylen Waddle

Jaylen Waddle

WR | MIA

Another nine catches

Waddle recorded nine receptions on 11 targets for 90 yards in Sunday's 20-9 victory over the Giants.

Waddle continued his breakout even with the return of DeVante Parker (shoulder), racking up double-digit targets for the fifth time in his last eight games. While he wasn't able to top 100 yards for the second consecutive contest, he did manage several chunk gains of 25, 17 and 11 yards. Waddle has particularly displayed the big-play aspect of his game of late, as he's now delivered four receptions of 20 yards or more in his last four games. In comparison, he had just two such gains across the first nine contests of his career. Waddle will have to wait until Week 15 to take the field again as the Dolphins head into their bye in Week 14.

Pharaoh Brown

Pharaoh Brown

TE | HOU

Makes four grabs

Brown caught four of five targets for 23 yards but lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Brown led the Texans in receptions and trailed only Brandin Cooks in targets and yards, but he coughed the ball up following a first-quarter catch. Even though he matched his season high in grabs, his miscue Sunday damaged his overall performance. He'll strive to clean his play up next weekend versus the Seahawks.

Snags game-winning touchdown

St. Brown caught 10 of 12 targets for 86 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Without D'Andre Swift (shoulder) in the fold, St. Brown delivered as a secondary short-range option en route to career highs in nearly every receiving category. While he made a number of nice catches throughout the day, no play was bigger than his first career touchdown reception that came as time expired. However, not only was this just the fourth time that St. Brown has topped four receptions or 50 receiving yards, but Josh Reynolds seemed like Jared Goff's preferred downfield target. The fourth-round rookie could have a hard time building upon this performance in Week 14 against Denver.

Trenton Cannon

Trenton Cannon

RB | SF

Leaves contest in ambulance

Cannon (concussion) won't return to Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Cannon had to be taken off the field in an ambulance after getting hurt on the opening kickoff. More information on Cannon's status will likely be available later in the day, but in the meantime, Ambry Thomas will likely takeover as the primary kick returner for the remainder of the contest.

Davis Mills

QB | HOU

Replaces injured Taylor

Mills completed six of 14 passes for 49 yards in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Mills replaced teammate Tyrod Taylor late in the third quarter after he injured his wrist. Although coach David Culley said after the game that Taylor could have returned, he also noted concern over Taylor's ability to grip the ball, ultimately allowing Mills to finish the contest. In his relief role, Mills struggled to get anything going, but his numbers were rather similar to Taylor's prior to exiting. Given Taylor's injury, it'll be worthwhile to monitor his practice involvement this week, as Mills would stand to benefit should he be limited in advance of next Sunday's matchup versus the Seahawks.

Justin Jefferson

Justin Jefferson

WR | MIN

Continues torrid pace

Jefferson corralled 11 of 14 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown Sunday, adding four yards on one carry and an incomplete pass on a failed trick play in a 29-27 loss to Detroit.

Adam Thielen (ankle) was knocked out of the contest on the Vikings' first offensive possession, leaving Jefferson to shoulder the majority of the receiving workload. The 22-year-old continued his recent run of elite production, averaging an impressive 144.3 yards per game with three total touchdowns over his last four contests. Thielen's status for Thursday's matchup against the Steelers is currently unclear, but given the quick turnaround, Jefferson may be asked to carry the receiving unit yet again.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Sprains ankle Sunday

Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed after Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions that Thielen has a sprained ankle, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Prior to his exit from the contest, Thielen caught one of his two targets for no gain. The wideout's chances of playing this Thursday against the Steelers will clearly hinge on the severity of his ankle sprain, but the short turnaround between games could threaten his Week 14 availability.

T.Y. Hilton

T.Y. Hilton

WR | IND

Makes two grabs

Hilton caught both his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Hilton ranked fourth on the Colts in targets, trailing Michael Pittman, Nyheim Hines and Zach Pascal. While he managed to haul in both of his looks, there wasn't much receiving production to go around on a day the Colts rushed 48 times while nursing a sizeable second-half lead. The veteran Hilton will now rest up over the bye week before returning with difficult matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals.

Rex Burkhead

Rex Burkhead

RB | HOU

Just 45 yards Sunday

Burkhead rushed eight times for 30 yards and caught one of two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Burkhead led the Texans in carries with fellow tailback David Johnson (illness/thigh) sidelined. Facing a tough Colts defense, though, he couldn't get much going on the ground, but he at least contributed Houston's longest catch of the day. His outlook for next Sunday's game against the Seahawks could depend on Johnson's status, making the Texans' backfield situation one to monitor.

Jamaal Williams

Jamaal Williams

RB | DET

Totals 80 yards in Swift's absence

Williams rushed 17 times for 71 yards while catching his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

While Williams clearly operated as the lead running back in the absence of D'Andre Swift (shoulder), he was hardly used as a receiver after seeing five targets in Swift's absence last week. However, the fact that Detroit surprisingly played with a two-score lead for parts this game probably played a role in that development. With Swift seemingly in line to miss a second game in Week 14 against Denver, look for Williams to get another huge workload with more upside as a receiver than he showed against Minnesota.

Chris Godwin

Chris Godwin

WR | TB

Explodes for 15-catch tally

Godwin brought in 15 of 17 targets for 143 yards and rushed once for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Godwin has had some eye-popping lines before in his now nearly two seasons of working with Tom Brady, but Sunday's performance nevertheless jumped off the page. The fifth-year veteran easily led all pass catchers across the board during what was his fourth 100-yard effort of the campaign, with three of those instances coming in the last six games. Given Brady frequently distributes targets somewhat unpredictably from week to week, Godwin's breakout performance could well be followed by a much more modest one, but he'll head into an interconference showdown against the Bills in Week 14 with a serious head of steam.

Miles Sanders

Miles Sanders

RB | PHI

Re-injures ankle Sunday

Sanders relayed after Sunday's 33-18 road win against the Jets that he re-injured the ankle that has bothered him since a Week 8 game at Las Vegas, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Sanders was forced out in the fourth quarter Sunday after hurting his right ankle at the end of a third-down catch. Prior to his exit, he paced the Eagles backfield with 24 carries for 120 yards and also hauled in all three targets for 22 yards. The original injury forced a stint on injured reserve, but with the team heading into a Week 14 bye the running back is confident he'll be ready once Philadelphia next plays Sunday, Dec. 19 against Washington. Sanders joins Jordan Howard (knee) as injured Eagles running backs, leaving Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell as the healthiest at the position on the team's active roster.

Nyheim Hines

Nyheim Hines

RB | IND

Garners six touches

Hines rushed three times for 24 yards and caught three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Hines was efficient with his six touches, which included a game-long catch of 24 yards. That play helped him finish second on the Colts in receiving, but he watched fellow tailback Deon Jackson score a three-yard touchdown to end the game, missing out on an easy opportunity to add to his output. The versatile Hines now enters the bye week with difficult matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals awaiting once the Colts return to action.

Cole Kmet

Cole Kmet

TE | CHI

Targeted seven times

Kmet caught three passes for 41 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Although Kmet had seven targets compared to one for Jimmy Graham, it was Kmet throwing the block that allowed Graham to score an easy goal-line touchdown. Over the past four games, Kmet is averaging 51 yards, but he hasn't scored a touchdown all year while Graham has recently been seeing regular red-zone targets. That limits Kmet's upside, though he's become a player who has become a reasonable starting fantasy option.

Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz

QB | IND

Throws touchdown in win

Wentz completed 16 of 22 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Wentz put together a decent performance in a game that saw the Colts dominate on the ground, racking up 238 rushing yards and three scores. The signal-caller still got involved in the scoring, though, throwing a two-yard touchdown to Ashton Dulin just before halftime. After having three turnovers last week, Wentz also protected the ball well Sunday, sending him into the bye week on a good note.

Tyrod Taylor

Tyrod Taylor

QB | HOU

Dealing with wrist issue

Taylor (wrist) completed five of his 13 passing attempts for 45 yards and an interception and ran three times for 15 yards prior to being replaced by Davis Mills in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Per Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site, Taylor suffered a possible hyperextended wrist in the contest. While coach David Culley noted afterward that the veteran QB probably could have returned, there was some concern that the issue could affect Taylor's ability to grip the ball. With that in mind, consider him day-to-day heading into the team's preparations for next weekend's game against the Seahawks.

Jared Goff

Jared Goff

QB | DET

Throws walkoff touchdown

Goff completed 25 of 41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

Despite playing without D'Andre Swift (shoulder), Goff put together his best game of the season and played nearly half of it with a two-score lead. While a lack of success on third downs eventually allowed the Vikings to claim the lead with under two minutes remaining, Goff ultimately led an improbable touchdown drive that ended with a touchdown strike to Amon-Ra St. Brown as time expired. However, this marked Detroit's first win of the season and Goff still ranks near the bottom of the league with 6.5 yards per pass attempt. Additionally, he still has one or zero pass touchdowns in over half of his games this season while offering minimal rushing upside. Despite the short-term success, Goff will remain an inadvisable fantasy option in Week 14 against Denver.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Pair of grabs in return

Hopkins (hamstring) brought in both targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 33-22 win over the Bears on Sunday.

The veteran wideout wasted no time proving his return to health when he found the end zone in the first quarter on a 20-yard connection with Kyler Murray (ankle), who also was making his return from a three-game absence. Coach Kliff Kingsbury deployed the passing game sparingly most of the afternoon, however, and Hopkins was handled with care with an eye on the stretch run and subsequent postseason. However, the air attack, and by extension, Hopkins, figures to play a much more prominent role during a key Week 14 Monday night home battle against the Rams.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

Four total touchdowns in return

Murray (ankle) completed 11 of 15 passes for 123 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Cardinals' 33-22 win over the Bears on Sunday. He also rushed 10 times for 59 yards and another pair of scores.

Murray and top wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) both made their returns from three-game absences Sunday, and the duo commemorated the occasion early with a 20-yard touchdown connection early in the first quarter. The dynamic quarterback went on to put the ball up sparingly after that but did so with great efficiency, and he ultimately made it a spectacular fantasy day with a 23-yard touchdown pass to James Conner along with nine- and three-yard touchdown runs. Now having proven a return to full health with his sixth multi-touchdown effort of the season, Murray will look ahead to a Week 14 Monday night showdown at home against the Rams.

Darnell Mooney

Darnell Mooney

WR | CHI

Struggles in loss

Mooney caught five passes for 27 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Between the Cardinals rolling coverage toward Chicago's top receiver along with Andy Dalton having very little time to throw, Mooney was unable to get anything going downfield. With the Bears playing from behind in the fourth quarter, Mooney was able to catch four of his five passes on the day to provide his fantasy managers with a decent floor performance. Going forward, Mooney could easily perform as a top-30 wide receiver as the lead receiver for the Bears, and he could see extra space to operate if Allen Robinson (hamstring) can return to action soon.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks

WR | HOU

Catches three passes

Cooks caught three of six targets for 38 yards and rushed once for 16 yards in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Cooks led the Texans in targets and receiving yards, but he still wasn't very productive on a day quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Davis Mills split time and managed just 94 passing yards between them. The wideout added a little extra value with his team-long rush, but he'll nonetheless strive for a more successful team and individual performance in Week 14 versus the Seahawks.

Tom Brady

Tom Brady

QB | TB

Spectacular effort in win

Brady completed 38 of 51 passes for 368 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. He also rushed once for minus-1 yard.

The numbers basically speak to Brady's dominance Sunday, with the future Hall of Famer looking locked in from the start of the game. Brady particularly focused on Chris Godwin throughout the afternoon, targeting his fifth-year wideout a whopping 17 times and connecting on 15 of those attempts for 143 yards. Somewhat surprisingly, none of Brady's four scoring tosses went to either Godwin or Mike Evans, however, as he connected twice with Rob Gronkowski and once apiece with Leonard Fournette and Cameron Brate. The 22-year veteran now has multiple touchdown passes in seven of the last eight games, a sample that includes four tallies of at least four scoring throws. Brady's next opportunity to continue adding to that impressive stretch comes in a Week 14 home showdown against the Bills.

Tops 100 scrimmage yards

Pittman caught six of eight targets for 77 yards and rushed twice for 33 yards in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Pittman led the Colts in all major receiving categories, rebounding after totaling just 76 yards over his prior two games. The wideout also added a couple rushes for good measure, including a game-long 25-yarder. Overall, he topped 100 scrimmage yards for the third time this season, sending him into the bye week on a positive note.

David Montgomery

David Montgomery

RB | CHI

Offensive centerpiece

Montgomery rushed 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown while posting eight receptions for 51 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

With the Arizona pass rush giving Andy Dalton very little time to throw, Montgomery led the Bears with nine targets, and he was effective as both a runner and receiver in a tough matchup. After failing to surpass 80 total yards while not scoring over his last three games, he recorded his highest yardage total of the season, and his weekly volume ensures he'll be a top-20 running back the rest of the way.

Jonathan Taylor

Jonathan Taylor

RB | IND

Another big performance

Taylor rushed 32 times for 143 yards and two touchdowns but lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Taylor scored on Indianapolis' opening drive in both halves, finding pay dirt from one and three yards out. Despite coughing the ball up, the tailback largely took advantage of a favorable matchup, tying his season high in carries as the Colts sealed a blowout victory. Although he wasn't targeted for the first time this term, Taylor put together his seventh outing with at least 100 rushing yards, topping 140 for the fourth time. With a touchdown in 10 straight games, Taylor will strive to keep his streak going in difficult matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals once the Colts return from their bye.

Miles Sanders

Miles Sanders

RB | PHI

Injures ankle, not returning Sunday

Sanders won't return to Sunday's road game against the Jets due to an ankle injury.

Sanders was approaching a career high in rushing at the time of his injury in the fourth quarter, when he clutched at his ankle at the end of a third-down catch. He remained down on the Jets' sideline for a few minutes before walking back to the Eagles' bench. After examining him in the blue medical tent, Philly has opted to keep Sanders out for the remainder of the contest, likely due to all the ankle issues he's dealt with this season. With Jordan Howard (knee) inactive Sunday, the team is left with Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield.

Ryan Griffin

Ryan Griffin

TE | NYJ

Injures ankle Sunday

Griffin left Sunday's game against the Eagles with an ankle injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Prior to his departure from the contest, Griffin caught both of his targets for 15 yards and a TD. Next up for the Jets' TE looks in his absence are Kenny Yeboah and Daniel Brown.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

Exits Sunday's game

Davis was forced out of Sunday's game against the Eagles after apparently aggravating his groin injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Prior to his exit from the contest, Davis -- who headed into the weekend listed as questionable with a groin injury-- caught two of his three targets for 15 yards. Next up for the Jets' targets in his absence are Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder, Denzel Mims and Braxton Berrios.

Peyton Barber

Peyton Barber

RB | LV

Suits up Sunday

Barber is active for Sunday's game against Washington.

Barber is back in uniform Sunday, with Jalen Richard on the reserve/COVID-19 list. However, Barber doesn't seem likely to handle many touches in the Raiders offense unless Josh Jacobs or Kenyan Drake suffer any injury setbacks in Week 13.

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson

RB | SEA

Making debut with Seattle

Peterson is listed as active Sunday against the 49ers.

Peterson joined the Seahawks' practice squad Wednesday and was elevated to the active roster Saturday. The move may have been premeditated with Alex Collins tending to a nagging abdominal injury, which surprisingly will keep him on the sideline in Week 13. Earlier Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Peterson would serve as Seattle's lead runner in this contest, with Rashaad Penny (hamstring), DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer (calf) also available to the backfield. In three appearances for the Titans this season, Peterson managed 27 carries for 82 yards and one touchdown and caught all four targets for eight yards.

Miles Boykin

Miles Boykin

WR | BAL

Out for Sunday

Boykin (finger) will not play Sunday against the Steelers.

Boykin has missed the Ravens' previous two games and was considered doubtful for Sunday. James Proche and Tylan Wallace will continue to fill the depth receiver roles for Baltimore.

Travis Homer

Travis Homer

RB | SEA

Active in Week 13

Homer (calf) is active for Sunday's contest versus the 49ers.

Homer practiced in full during Week 13 prep but still entered the weekend as questionable for this game. While he'll be available to the Seahawks backfield Sunday along with Adrian Peterson, Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas, Alex Collins will not be after the team made him a surprise health scratch. Peterson is expected to be the primary ballcarrier in his first action with Seattle, likely leaving scraps for Homer, Penny and Dallas.

Ty'Son Williams

RB | BAL

Inactive Sunday

Williams is a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

With Williams inactive, the Ravens' Week 13 backfield will be comprised of Devonta Freeman, Latavius Murray and Nate McCrary.

Rashaad Penny

Rashaad Penny

RB | SEA

Suiting up in Week 13

Penny (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the 49ers.

With Chris Carson (neck) out for the season and Alex Collins (abdomen) surprisingly getting the week off, Penny will be a part of the backfield rotation for just the fifth time this season. What kind of workload that amounts to remains to be seen, especially with recent addition Adrian Peterson slated to he the Seahawks' lead runner Sunday. In any case, Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer (calf) are available behind Peterson.

Alex Collins

Alex Collins

RB | SEA

Surprise scratch Sunday

Collins (abdomen) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.

With Chris Carson (neck) sidelined since Week 5 and now out for the season, Collins has been the de facto lead running back for the Seahawks, averaging 13.4 touches per game over the last seven outings. Collins himself has been tending to injuries to his midsection for most of that stretch, and with the addition of Adrian Peterson this week, the team has opted to give the former the game off. There's an expectation that Peterson will serve as the lead back in his first action with Seattle, but Rashaad Penny (hamstring), DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer (calf) also are on hand to aid the backfield.

Ronald Jones II

Ronald Jones II

RB | TB

Battling illness

Jones exited Sunday's game against the Falcons due to an illness, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Jones had one carry for two yards and caught his lone target for zero yards during the first half before leaving due to the ailment. Giovani Bernard should step up as Tampa Bay's No. 2 tailback behind starter Leonard Fournette.

Joey Bosa

Joey Bosa

DL | LAC

Ruled out with head injury

Bosa (head) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Bosa exited the game in the first half and was ultimately ruled out. The team has not announced whether Bosa is in concussion protocol, though the injury could also jeopardize his availability for a Week 14 matchup against the Giants. He recorded one tackle prior to his exit.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Not returning Sunday

Thielen (ankle) won't return to Sunday's contest at Detroit.

Thielen had his lower left leg pinned while getting tackled on a screen on the Vikings' first possession of the game. He was visibly limping afterward and received treatment from the team's training staff before he was determined to be dealing with an ankle injury. Now that he's been deemed unable to return, Thielen will finish Week 13 with one catch (on two targets) for no yards. Minnesota will turn to Justin Jefferson as its lead receiver, with K.J. Osborn and Dede Westbrook the next players up on the depth chart.

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

WR | LV

Active versus Washington

Jackson (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Washington.

Jackson, who was on the field for 42 of the Raiders' 87 offensive snaps in the team's 36-33 overtime win over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, made his mark in that contest by catching three of his four targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. He'll work through a calf issue Sunday, but with Hunter Renfrow, Zay Jones and Bryan Edwards also in Las Vegas' wideout mix, the veteran speedster is tough to count on to earn steady targets from QB Derek Carr on a weekly basis.

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs

RB | LV

Suits up Sunday

Jacobs (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against Washington.

Jacobs, who logged limited practices Thursday and Friday before heading into the weekend listed as questionable, will give it a go Sunday and should continue to lead the Raiders' backfield in Week 13, with Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber on hand to spell him. In Las Vegas' 36-33 overtime win over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day, Jacobs logged 57 of a possible 87 snaps on offense en route to carrying 22 times for 87 yards and a TD while catching two of his four targets for 25 yards.

Kenny Golladay

Kenny Golladay

WR | NYG

Back in Sunday's game

Golladay (ribs) returned to Sunday's game in Miami, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Golladay was knocked from the contest in the first half with a rib injury, but he was able to rejoin his offensive teammates after intermission. He'll look to continue building on what so far has been a three-catch, 37-yard performance on three targets.

Inactive Week 13

Seals-Jones (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The journeyman thus will sit out a third straight contest after doing a serviceable job filling in for a then-injured Logan Thomas for a six-game stretch. Thomas is back healthy as of Week 12 and will continue filling No. 1 tight end duties, with rookie fourth-round pick John Bates bumping up the depth chart again behind him with Seals-Jones out.

James Robinson

James Robinson

RB | JAX

Active for Sunday's game

Robinson (heel/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, heel and knee issues have left Robinson hobbled of late, but the running back was feeling better as of Saturday, setting the stage for him to suit up Sunday. As long as Robinson -- who parlayed his 38 snaps in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Falcons into 17 carries for 86 yards and three catches for 29 yards -- is able to avoid any in-game setbacks, he should continue to lead his team's backfield versus Los Angeles, with Carlos Hyde on hand to work in a complementary role in the meantime.

Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel

WR | WAS

Active in Week 13

Samuel (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Samuel was finally able to get back on the field Week 12 against the Seahawks after a five-game absence and logged 20 snaps in the win over Seattle. He'll be out there for a second straight game for only the second instance all season, with the first occasion seeing him exit after just four snaps against the Saints in Week 5 following an aggravation of his groin injury.

Available Sunday

Henderson (thigh) is listed as active Sunday against the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Henderson suffered a thigh injury during last Sunday's loss at Green Bay and didn't get back on the practice field until Friday. With just one capped session under his belt, he entered the weekend as questionable, and Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported earlier Sunday that Henderson would be available but not likely to be the Rams' No. 1 running back Week 13. L.A. thus appears poised to rely on Sony Michel and, to a lesser extent, Mekhi Sargent out of the backfield Sunday, while Henderson is available in some capacity.

Suiting up Sunday

Beckham (hip) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

After a week in which he managed two limited practices due to a posterior hip pointer that he suffered last Sunday in Green Bay, Beckham will suit up for a third time as a member of the Rams. In the first two appearances, he combined for seven catches (on 13 targets) for 99 yards and one touchdown. A fruitful outing could be on tap for Beckham against a Jacksonville defense that has given up 9.1 yards per target (third most in the NFL) to wide receivers this season.

Kenny Golladay

Kenny Golladay

WR | NYG

Injures ribs Sunday

Golladay was forced out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a rib injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Prior to his exit, Golladay had caught all three of his targets for 37 yards. In his absence, Darius Slayton, John Ross, Pharoh Cooper and Collin Johnson will handle the Giants' Week 13 wideout duties.

Joey Bosa

Joey Bosa

DL | LAC

Being evaluated for a head injury

Bosa is being evaluated for a head injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Bengals.

The star pass rusher suffered two concussions last season, so this is certainly concerning news for Los Angeles. If Bosa is unable to return, then Kyler Fackrell will likely see increased opportunities during his absence.

Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen

WR | MIN

Hurts ankle Sunday

Thielen exited Sunday's game at Detroit due to an ankle injury, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Thielen was hobbled after hauling in a screen pass early in the first quarter, limping to the sideline after the play. He had his lower left leg examined before the Vikings ruled him questionable to return. If he's unable to continue, Thielen will emerge from Week 13 action with the sole catch (on two targets) for no yards.

Expected to be available

Henderson (thigh) should be available for Sunday afternoon's game against the Jaguars, though he's not expected to be the feature back, Jay Glazer reported on the Fox Sunday pregame show.

This makes the pregame warmups 90 minutes before the game all that much more important. This situation remains as clear as mud. Sony Michel will likely get more work than usual, and Henderson might just be available on an emergency basis.

Jordan Akins

Jordan Akins

TE | HOU

Inactive Sunday

Akins (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

With Akins still the odd man out, the Texans' Week 13 tight end options will be Pharaoh Brown, Brevin Jordan and Antony Auclair.

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts

QB | PHI

Has high ankle sprain

Hurts, who is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets, has a high ankle sprain but is only expected to miss one game, Jay Glazer reported on Fox NFL Sunday.

After spraining his ankle in Philadelphia's Week 12 loss to the Giants, Hurts practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday through Friday before being ruled out of Sunday's game. His participation in practice suggests this will be a short-term absence, but Glazer's report that the sprain is higher up the ankle adds more uncertainty to his Week 15 availability. However, Hurts will have time to recover with the Eagles on a bye next week. Gardner Minshew will start with Hurts out while Reid Sinnett serves as his backup.

La'Mical Perine

La'Mical Perine

RB | NYJ

Inactive for Week 13

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

The 2020 fourth-rounder remains the odd man out in the Jets' backfield and it's going to take an injury or two for Perine to come close to the fantasy radar this season.

Boston Scott

Boston Scott

RB | PHI

Ready to go Sunday

Scott (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Scott wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the 26-year-old apparently made enough progress in recovery from the ailment over the past 48 hours to gain clearance for Sunday's contest. With quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle) and running back Jordan Howard (knee) sidelined for Week 13, Scott could take on a slightly larger role than normal as the second option in the Philadelphia ground attack behind starting back Miles Sanders. Scott should also have a role on passing downs along with Kenneth Gainwell, as the Eagles haven't kept Sanders involved as a receiver in his first two games since returning from injured reserve.

Kene Nwangwu

RB | MIN

Active for Sunday

Nwangwu (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Nwangwu is set for a potentially prominent role in the Vikings' offense Sunday against the Lions. With Dalvin Cook (shoulder) out, Nwangwu will be slotted behind only Alexander Mattison on the running back depth chart. After landing on IR due to an injury suffered in their preseason opener, Nwangwu emerged in Week 8 against Dallas and quickly began making an impact on special teams, returning kickoffs for a touchdown in Week 9 and Week 12. Selected in the fourth round of the 2021 draft, Nwangwu has recorded two carries on the season for 16 yards, numbers he'll try to expand on Sunday.

Jack Doyle

Jack Doyle

TE | IND

Clear to play Sunday

Doyle (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Doyle was considered questionable despite practicing as a full participant Friday, so it's hardly a surprise he's active Sunday. The 31-year-old is coming off his best game of the season after catching six of seven targets for 81 yards and a touchdown last week versus the Buccaneers.

Rex Burkhead

Rex Burkhead

RB | HOU

Added work likely Sunday

Burkhead is on track to see added work out of the Texans' backfield Sunday against the Colts with David Johnson (illness/thigh) inactive.

Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston previously suggested given Johnson's status that the Texans would turn to Burkhead as their primary back Sunday, with Royce Freeman also in the mix and Jaylen Samuels on hand in reserve. With that in mind, Burkhead, who shared work with Johnson last weekend, merits lineup consideration from those looking for Week 13 running back help due to injuries and/or byes.

John Ross

John Ross

WR | NYG

Cleared for Week 13

Ross (illness/quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Ross only managed one limited practice this week while tending to the quad injury in addition to an illness, but he demonstrated enough progress over the past couple of days to avoid the inactive list. With fellow wideouts Kadarius Toney (quad/oblique) and Sterling Shepard (quad) both sidelined, Ross will likely share No. 3 receiver duties alongside starters Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton. While both Toney and Shepard were sidelined in last week's 13-7 win over the Eagles, Ross played 10 snaps (17 percent) and finished with two receptions for 28 yards on two targets.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley

WR | HOU

Active for Week 13

Conley (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Conley is out there if you need him Sunday, but even with Danny Amendola (knee) on IR, he profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option, with Brandin Cooks still the best bet among Houston's wideouts to garner enough volume to merit lineup consideration.

Phillip Lindsay

Phillip Lindsay

RB | MIA

Inactive Sunday

Lindsay (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

With Lindsay unavailable, Salvon Ahmed and Patrick Laird figure to see added complementary opportunities in Miami's Week 13 backfield, while working behind top back Myles Gaskin.

Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney

WR | NYG

Missing second straight game

Toney (quadriceps/oblique) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

The pair of injuries will keep Toney sidelined for the second straight game, an unsurprising development after he was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend following no practice participation Wednesday through Friday. With Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) also joining Toney on the inactive list, the Giants will likely turn to John Ross and Collin Johnson to split work as the No. 3 receiver behind starters Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

In uniform Sunday

Davis (groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

After sitting out practice Wednesday and Thursday, Davis logged a limited session Friday, and he'll give it a go Sunday. That said, Rich Cimini of ESPN previously suggested that the wideout could potentially be limited to a degree in his return from a one-game absence. With that in mind, Davis who has averaged four catches on seven targets for 59.6 yards with four TDs in eight games, profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option in Week 13.

Sterling Shepard

Sterling Shepard

WR | NYG

Not playing Sunday

Shepard (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Though Shepard closed the week with a pair of limited practice sessions, he was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend before ultimately landing on the inactive list for the fourth game in a row. Due to the length of his absence, Shepard may need to upgrade to full participation in practice at some point during the upcoming week to have a shot at suiting up in the Giants' next game Dec. 12 against the Chargers. With Kadarius Toney (quadriceps/oblique) also inactive Sunday, the Giants are left with wideouts Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton, tight end Evan Engram and running back Saquon Barkley as the main pass-catching options for quarterback Mike Glennon.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks

WR | HOU

Suits up Sunday

Cooks (illness) listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Good news for the Texans, with Cooks - easily the team's most productive pass catcher this season - available for the context after returning to a limited practice Friday. Through 11 games, Houston's top wideout has logged a 62/704/3 stat line on 92 targets and Cooks should remain QB Tyrod Taylor's top option Sunday against an Indianapolis defense that has allowed 26 passing scores and an average of 244.7 yards in the air through 12 contests.

Unavailable Sunday

Robinson (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Cardinals.

Robinson has yet to practice since the Bears returned from a Week 10 bye, resulting in his third DNP in a row. The Bears also are without Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs), leaving Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Rodney Adams as the team's available wide receivers Sunday.

Wayne Gallman

Wayne Gallman

RB | ATL

Healthy scratch Week 13

Gallman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Gallman played five offensive snaps and had four carries for 19 yards last week against the Jaguars, but he'll be a healthy scratch for Sunday's contest. Qadree Ollison was elevated from the practice squad and is active in Gallman's place.

David Johnson

David Johnson

RB | HOU

Inactive Sunday

Johnson (illness/thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

With Johnson inactive, Rex Burkhead, Royce Freeman and Jaylen Samuels (elevated from the practice squad Saturday) are available to handle the Texans' Week 13 backfield duties. In that context, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston suggests that Burkhead will work as the team's primary back Sunday, with Freeman -- who started the season with Carolina -- poised to see his first touches on offense in a Houston uniform.

Justin Fields

Justin Fields

QB | CHI

Sitting out again Sunday

Fields (ribs) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

As expected, Fields will miss his second consecutive contest due to multiple small rib fractures that he suffered back in Week 11. With the rookie first-round pick sidelined, the Bears again will turn to Andy Dalton to direct the offense. Fields' next chance to suit up will arrive Sunday, Dec. 12 at Green Bay.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Returning to action Sunday

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday in Chicago, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Coming off Arizona's Week 12 bye, Hopkins logged a pair of limited practices while sitting out Thursday's session as he attempted to put a hamstring issue in the rearview mirror. While the activity was enough to put an end to a three-game absence -- which surpassed the total absences (two) in the first eight campaigns of his career -- he may operate under a snap count to avoid a setback and also due to the rainy conditions in Chicago, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. Still, the Cardinals offense will welcome back the Hopkins-Kyler Murray combination, which has amounted to 78.9 yards per game and 13 touchdowns in 24 contests together.

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts

QB | PHI

Sidelined Week 13, as expected

Hurts (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

After spraining his ankle in Philadelphia's Week 12 loss to the Giants, Hurts practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday through Friday, but reports leading up to Sunday suggested the Eagles would err on the side of caution and hold the second-year signal-caller out this weekend. Hurts' inclusion on the inactive list for the first time this season thus comes as no surprise, paving the way for Gardner Minshew to pick up a start while Reid Sinnett serves as his backup. Though the presence of Minshew behind center could actually provide an upgrade for the Eagles' pass catchers, he won't be able to match Hurts as a runner. The absence of Hurts -- who ranks fifth in the league in rushing scores (eight) and 10th in rushing yards (695) -- may also help lead back Miles Sanders, who projects to see a larger portion of the Eagles' carries, including more touches in goal-to-go situations. The Eagles are on bye Week 14, so Hurts should have a good chance at returning to the lineup for the team's Week 15 contest Dec. 19 against Washington.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

Back from three-game absence

Murray (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Chicago, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray hasn't played since the Cardinals' final offensive play of a Week 8 loss to the Packers, the result of a sprained ankle. In advance of this contest, he logged limited showings in practice -- like he did before Arizona's last game Nov. 21 -- but this time around he'll actually be available and direct the offense. After a three-game absence, Murray will be facing a Bears defense that has allowed the ninth-most YPA (7.7) and 18 touchdowns versus five interceptions to quarterbacks in 11 outings this season.

Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew

QB | PHI

Picking up Week 13 start

Minshew will start Sunday's game against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Jalen Hurts (ankle) inactive for the first time this season, Minshew will see his first extended action as a member of the Eagles, as his lone prior appearance with Philadelphia came during garbage time of a Week 8 win over the Lions. While Minshew isn't nearly as threatening as Hurts as a runner, he could amount to an upgrade for the Philadelphia passing game. In 23 games (20 starts) with Jacksonville over the past two seasons, Minshew averaged 240.4 passing yards per contest while posting a 37:11 TD:INT.

Preps for swan song with Pittsburgh

Roethlisberger has privately expressed to former teammates and some members within the organization that he expects the 2021 season to be his final year in Pittsburgh, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 39-year-old isn't expected to make any proclamations on his future with Pittsburgh -- or the NFL for that matter -- until after the season, but all signs point to the future Hall of Famer heading into retirement. Not only is Roethlisberger's contract set to expire after this season, but his advancing age and declining efficiency as a passer means that neither the Steelers nor another organization will view him as a viable starting quarterback heading into 2022. Though Roethlisberger ranks 24th among the NFL's 32 qualifying quarterbacks with a 43.0 QBR, he doesn't appear in any imminent danger of losing his starting job, given that the other signal-callers on the roster -- Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins -- haven't proven at any point during their respective careers that they would offer an upgrade. Instead, expect Roethlisberger to continue to try and lead the 5-5-1 Steelers to a playoff berth so long as his health prevails over the final six weeks of the regular season.

Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy

QB | ARI

Returning to No. 2 role

McCoy is expected to serve as the Cardinals' backup quarterback Sunday against the Bears after head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Kyler Murray (ankle) will return to the lineup this week following a three-game absence, Stacey Dales of NFL Network reports.

McCoy proved to be a capable replacement while Murray was sidelined for the past three games, despite not having top wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) at his disposal for any of those contests. The veteran signal-caller guided Arizona to a 2-1 record sans Murray and Hopkins, completing 75.6 percent of his throws for 7.6 yards per attempt and a 3:1 TD:INT while adding 40 yards on the ground. Though McCoy is unlikely to see extended action again this season so long as Murray remains healthy, the 35-year-old's strong showing as a fill-in starter should be enough to earn him another one-year deal with the Cardinals or another club this offseason.

Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones

QB | NYG

Multi-week absence expected

Jones (neck), who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, will undergo additional testing Monday and is expected to remain out for multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Prior reports previously described Jones as week-to-week after he suffered a strained neck in the Giants' Nov. 28 with over the Eagles, but the quarterback looked to have a legitimate shot at avoiding an absence after he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday through Friday. However, Jones wasn't able to take contact in any of those sessions, and that appears to be the main obstacle he'll have to clear in order to return to the lineup. The Giants fear that Jones is dealing with a "ligament issue and maybe more," according to Rapoport, and the 24-year-old's upcoming tests should shed more light on the extent of his injury and whether he'll have any chance at playing next week against the Chargers. Mike Glennon will start in his stead Sunday in Miami and would likely pick up any additional starts that Jones might miss.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Coach confirms Week 13 return

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury told Stacey Dales of NFL Network that Hopkins (hamstring) will play Sunday against the Bears, despite being listed as questionable for the contest after missing the Cardinals' previous three games.

Kingsbury confirmed that both of Arizona's top two skill-position players will put an end to their three-game, four-week absences Week 13, as starting quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) also received the green light to return to the lineup. Hopkins' injury designation won't officially be lifted until Arizona releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but the wideout should step back in as Murray's top target in the passing game. However, with Adam Schefter of ESPN relaying earlier Sunday that Hopkins could be used "more sparingly than usual" in his return to the lineup because of poor weather conditions in Chicago in addition to the long layoff due to injury, fantasy managers may want to temper expectations to some degree.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

Gets green light from coach

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told Stacey Dales of NFL Network that Murray (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, will play.

Murray will be officially announced as Arizona's Week 13 starting quarterback when the team releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but Kingsbury's comments should clear up any lingering questions fantasy managers had about the 24-year-old's availability. Even though Murray has been cleared to return from a three-game, four-week absence, it's fair to wonder how he'll look following the one-month layoff. Given that preserving Murray's health for a potential playoff run is likely the Cardinals' top priority, his designed runs could be scaled back a bit down the stretch, which would be detrimental to his fantasy outlook. In his final four games before exiting the lineup, Murray had already seen a major reduction in his output on the ground, as he compiled only 38 rushing yards and no touchdowns during that stretch.

Jalen Richard

Jalen Richard

RB | LV

Goes on COVID-19 list

Richard won't be available for Sunday's game against Washington after the Raiders placed him on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The team hasn't revealed whether Richard was deactivated due to a positive test of the virus, but given that the running back has been vocal about not accepting the vaccine, he'll be away from the team for at least five days even if he was merely deemed a close contact of an infected person. The pass-catching specialist has handled a small role in the Las Vegas backfield in 2021, most recently playing only nine snaps in the Raiders' 36-33 overtime win over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Richard's absence will likely result in a modest bump in work for either or both of Josh Jacobs (ankle) and Kenyan Drake on passing downs.

Alex Collins

Alex Collins

RB | SEA

Set to lose work to Peterson

Collins (abdomen), who is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, is expected to cede duties as Seattle's lead ball carrier to Adrian Peterson even if he's active for the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Along with Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf), Collins is one of three Seattle running backs listed as questionable for Week 13, with Peterson and DeeJay Dallas representing the lone healthy options. The decision to elevate Peterson from the practice squad implies that at least one of the four other backs will be inactive this week, but even if Collins gains clearance to play, he looks like he'll have a much smaller role than usual. Since Chris Carson (neck) suffered a season-ending injury Week 4, Collins has taken over as Seattle's de facto lead back, but he's averaging a woeful 3.6 yards per carry while catching only six passes and scoring once over the past seven contests. Penny has been even more inefficient on the few occasions he's been available this season, so the Seahawks appear content to give Peterson a look and see if he can inject some life into a dormant ground game. Expect either Homer or Dallas to replace Peterson on passing downs.

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson

RB | SEA

Likely to lead backfield in debut

The Seahawks plan to have Peterson pick up "the bulk of the carries" Sunday against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Though he first joined the organization Wednesday and wasn't elevated from the practice squad until Saturday, Peterson reportedly impressed in his initial workouts with the team and will get an extended look as Seattle aims to find a solution for its struggling ground attack. Alex Collins has served as the Seahawks' primary ball carrier since Chris Carson (neck) suffered a season-ending injury Week 4, but he's averaging a pedestrian 3.9 yards per carry and has just one gain of 20-plus yards across 101 totes. Collins is also listed as questionable for Sunday's game with an abdominal injury and may be at risk of sitting out, as could Rashaad Penny (hamstring), who is averaging only 2.5 yards per carry across the four games he's played this season. Even if both Collins and Penny suit up, Peterson looks like he'll be ahead of them in the pecking order for carries, while either Travis Homer (calf) or DeeJay Dallas serves as Seattle's main pass-catching back. Considering that Peterson was similarly inefficient (3.0 YPC on 27 totes) over his three-game stint with the Titans earlier this season and doesn't offer much of a threat as a receiver, he likely won't be a reliable fantasy option this week even if he leads the Seattle backfield in carries.

Royce Freeman

Royce Freeman

RB | HOU

Could have role on offense Sunday

Freeman could step in as the Texans' No. 2 running back behind Rex Burkhead in Sunday's game against the Colts with David Johnson (thigh/illness) listed as questionable for the contest but not expected to play, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

While both Burkhead and Johnson were active for last week's loss to the Dolphins, the two handled all of the Texans' running-back snaps, relegating Freeman exclusively to special-teams work. Johnson's absence will likely allow Burkhead to take on a greater portion of the snaps and touches out of the backfield, but expect Freeman to have at least a small role on offense as a change-of-pace option. Freeman isn't projected to see enough volume to make him a trustworthy play in weekly fantasy lineups, but a strong showing Sunday could allow him to earn more work during the final quarter of the season.

Rex Burkhead

Rex Burkhead

RB | HOU

Larger role could await

Burkhead is expected to serve as Houston's primary option out of the backfield Sunday against the Colts with David Johnson (illness/thigh) listed as questionable but not expected to play in the contest, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

In Houston's first game since letting go Phillip Lindsay, Burkhead paced the Texans backfield with a 64-percent snap share, taking the field for 35 plays to Johnson's 20, while third-stringer Royce Freeman was limited exclusively to a special-teams role. The distribution of touches between Burkhead and Johnson was much more even, however, as the former gained 54 yards across 12 carries and three receptions, while the latter picked up 55 yards on 10 totes and two catches. Assuming Johnson is made inactive ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Burkhead should take on a greater share of the backfield touches, but he could struggle to produce a meaningful stat line if the 2-9 Texans fall behind early and a forced into a pass-heavy game script. Freeman and practice-squad call-up Jaylen Samuels could also have roles on offense, though neither looks like a good bet to match the 12 touches Johnson saw last week.

Looks set to play Sunday

Beckham (hip), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

A posterior hip pointer rendered Beckham a limited participant in two practices and kept him off the field in one other, but the wideout looks like he's prepared to play through the pain Sunday as the reeling Rams look to get back on track against the 2-9 Jaguars. The Rams will enter the contest as heavy favorites, and if Los Angeles is able to mount an early lead, Beckham and some of the team's other key skill-position players could see their workloads scaled back a bit. In his second game as a member of the Rams in Week 12 in Green Bay, Beckham played 98 percent of the offensive snaps and finished with five receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

WR | LV

Should suit up vs. former team

Jackson (calf), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, is expected to be available, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jackson received the questionable tag for Week 13 after he was limited in two practices and missed another due to a calf spasm. The Raiders may want to put him through a workout early Sunday just to make sure he's good to go, but confirmation on his availability should arrive 90 minutes prior to the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, when Las Vegas releases its inactive list. Jackson enjoyed his biggest game to date in his third appearance with the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day, hauling in three of four targets for 102 yards and a touchdown while playing just over half of the snaps in a 36-33 overtime win over Dallas.

James Robinson

James Robinson

RB | JAX

Plans to suit up Week 13

Robinson (heel/knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, plans to try and play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The two injuries have left Robinson hobbled for weeks, but he's proceeded to suit up in each of Jacksonville's last three games while averaging 79.0 yards from scrimmage per contest and scoring two touchdowns. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network characterizes Robinson as more of a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, but unless he deals with a setback in pregame warmups, expect the 23-year-old to start as he normally does. Carlos Hyde is the next man up for work in the Jacksonville backfield if Robinson is inactive or limited during the contest.

Expected to play Sunday

Edwards-Helaire (illness), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Broncos, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Edwards-Helaire missed Friday's practice with an illness, but his ability to return for Saturday's walk-through session suggests he'll be available for the contest, which begins at 8:20 p.m. ET. Official confirmation of his Week 13 status will arrive approximately 90 minutes prior to kickoff, when Kansas City releases its inactive list.

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs

RB | LV

Likely to go Sunday

Jacobs (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jacobs logged limited practices Thursday and Friday before taking the designation into the weekend, but he looks like he's trending toward playing. Confirmation of his availability, either way, will arrive when the Raiders' inactive list is posted 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Looks iffy for Sunday's game

Henderson, who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, plans to test out his injured thigh in a warmup prior to the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, but the Rams aren't optimistic the running back will play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Even if Henderson does suit up, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggests that Los Angeles' top back may not have a full workload in the contest. If that's the case, Sony Michel could be in store for a sizable workload on the ground, particularly if the Rams are able to establish an early lead against the 2-9 Jaguars. Official confirmation of Henderson's Week 13 status will arrive when the Rams declare their inactives 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

James Robinson

James Robinson

RB | JAX

Game-time call Week 13

Robinson (heel/knee) is viewed as a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's contest against the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Per Rapoport, the assumption earlier in the week was that the running back likely wouldn't play, but Robinson is reportedly feeling better and now has a chance to suit up, a notion echoed by an Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. How his pre-game workout goes will therefore determine Robinson's status, which will be known when Jacksonville releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If Robinson is out this week, Carlos Hyde would see an increased role in the team's backfield.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

Expected to play

Murray (ankle) is expected to start Sunday's game against the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Murray has been out since Week 8 but appears to be ready to go following the Cardinals' Week 12 bye. He was limited throughout the week in practice and remains officially listed as questionable, however, so it's possible he won't be quite his usual dynamic self even if does indeed wind up being able to play.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Could play reduced role

Hopkins (hamstring) is likely to play Sunday against the Bears but may be used in a smaller role than usual, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hopkins has been out since Week 8 while dealing with a hamstring injury and remains officially listed as questionable. While the injury has healed to the point that he's expected to be able to play in some capacity, poor weather conditions add increased risk Sunday, which could cause the Cardinals to limit his snaps.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks

WR | HOU

Expected to play

Cooks (illness) is expected to play Sunday against the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Cooks didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday while battling a non-COVID illness, but he returned to practice Friday. He's evidently over the illness enough to take the field Sunday, though the official call on his status won't be made until closer to kickoff.

David Johnson

David Johnson

RB | HOU

Not expected to play

Johnson (illness/thigh) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Johnson remains officially listed as questionable while battling both an illness and a thigh injury, but it looks like his outlook isn't good. Expect Rex Burkhead to see additional snaps if Johnson does indeed wind up being unable to suit up.

Danny Amendola

Danny Amendola

WR | HOU

Goes to injured reserve

The Texans placed Amendola (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Amendola came out of the Texans' Week 12 loss to the Jets with a meniscus injury that required arthroscopic surgery Tuesday. With a recovery timeline of up to four weeks, this move was inevitable, and he won't be eligible return until a Dec. 26 game against the Chargers. While Amendola is in recovery mode, Brandin Cooks (illness), Nico Collins, Chris Conley (illness), Chris Moore and Davion Davis will comprise the Texans' group of wide receivers.

Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew

QB | PHI

Spot start imminent?

Minshew could be in line to earn a spot start Sunday at the Jets with Jalen Hurts (ankle) trending toward inactive status, NFL reporter Derrick Gunn reports.

Hurts came out of a Week 12 loss to the Giants with a sore left ankle and proceeded to log limited practices Wednesday through Friday, splitting first-team reps with Minshew in the process, per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The contingency plan set up Minshew to be the Eagles' No. 1 quarterback if Hurts was unable to go, and that scenario seems as if it'll come to pass. The Eagles will confirm as much approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. While Minshew has only made one brief appearance with the Eagles back in Week 8 -- he completed both passes for 11 yards -- he previously averaged 240.4 passing yards per game, tossed 37 touchdowns versus 11 interceptions and racked up 497 yards and one TD on the ground in 23 games (20 starts) for the Jaguars.

Austin Walter

RB | NYJ

Back to active roster

Walter was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

Walter surprisingly saw nine carries in Week 12 after being elevated from the practice squad in the absence of Michael Carter (ankle). He's now set for another chance to produce, though he'll likely remain behind at least Tevin Coleman in what could be a three-back committee in New York for a Week 13 matchup against the Eagles.

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts

QB | PHI

Unlikely to play Sunday

Hurts (ankle) isn't expected to play in Sunday's road game against the Jets, NFL reporter Derrick Gunn reports.

Hurts emerged from a Week 12 loss to the Giants with a sore left ankle, and both the quarterback and coach Nick Sirianni initially were confident he'd be able to gut it out and play this weekend. While he logged limited sessions Wednesday through Friday, Hurts split first-team reps with backup Gardner Minshew, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Ultimately, the Eagles appear poised to keep an eye toward the future and not risk a more significant injury with Hurts, allowing Minshew to be the primary signal-caller Sunday. Such a decision will be confirmed about 90 minutes before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Matt Ammendola

K | NYJ

Let go by Jets

Ammendola was waived by the Jets on Saturday.

Ammendola has had an inconsistent rookie season, knocking in only 68 percent of his field goals and 93 percent of his extra points. He's particularly struggled of late, converting only three of six field-goal attempts across his last two games. Ammendola should get another opportunity, though he may have to sign with a team's practice squad initially.

Alex Kessman

K | NYJ

Taking over as starting kicker

Kessman was signed to the active roster Saturday.

Kessman evidently won the kicking job from Matt Ammendola, who converted just 13 of his 19 field-goal attempts this season, including 0-for-3 from 50-plus yards. The Jets have attempted the 11th-fewest kicks and the third-fewest extra-point attempts this season, so even if Kessman does buoy a struggling kicking unit, it likely won't impact things much from a fantasy perspective.

Trey Sermon

RB | SF

Moves to IR

Sermon (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan seemed to hint this designation was on the table Friday, as the rookie evidently suffered a sprain serious enough to cause him to miss significant time. It's been a disappointing campaign for the Ohio State product, and while Sermon will be eligible to return before the end of the season, it's hard to envision a scenario where the running back emerges as the main ball carrier.

Qadree Ollison

Qadree Ollison

RB | ATL

Elevated for Week 13

Ollison was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Ollison led the team in carries in Week 11 against New England but was left on the practice squad for Week 12 after being sidelined with an illness. He won't maintain the primary role for Atlanta against the Buccaneers on Sunday due to the return of Cordarrelle Patterson, though Ollison could overtake both Wayne Gallman and Mike Davis for the primary backup duties.

DeVante Parker

DeVante Parker

WR | MIA

Off injured reserve

Parker (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Parker has played in just one game since Week 4 thanks to a lingering shoulder issue. The veteran wide receiver had been quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's favorite target early in the season, but rookie Jaylen Waddle has assumed that mantle as of late. With a relatively easy schedule the rest of the way and Tagovailoa's emerging capabilities under center, it's possible Miami's offense could cater two fantasy-relevant wide receivers, although that does not factor in the potential return of Will Fuller (finger), who could be designated to return from injured reserve soon.

Nick Folk

Nick Folk

K | NE

Deemed questionable

Folk (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bills, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Folk has made a regular appearance on the injury report this season, yet he has suited up for every game to this point. He's hit 91 percent of his field-goal attempts on the campaign, with all three of his misses coming from more than 50 yards away. Barring any type of news regarding a setback, he should be expected to play Monday.

Kene Nwangwu

RB | MIN

Suddenly questionable

Nwangwu is questionable for Sunday's game against Detroit with an illness.

Nwangwu was expected to serve as the Vikings' backup running back behind Alexander Mattison with Dalvin Cook (shoulder) sidelined. It appears that there is still a decent chance for him to suit up, though an illness has jeopardized his availability after he logged full practices all week. In addition to further depleting the running back depth chart, Nwangwu's potential absence would hurt the Vikings' return game, as he has two kick-return touchdowns this season.

Officially out

Gordon (hip/shoulder) has been officially ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

It's hardly surprising given Gordon was listed as doubtful on Friday's final injury report, but the official confirmation sets the stage for rookie Javonte Williams to take on the lion's share of the backfield workload. Mike Boone and Damarea Crockett represent the only other healthy backs for the Broncos.

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson

RB | SEA

Elevated to active roster

Peterson was elevated to the Seahawks' active roster Saturday.

The Seahawks wasted no time getting the 36-year-old on the active roster after signing him to the practice squad earlier this week. Peterson averaged 3.0 yards per carry across his three games with the Titans this season, so it's hard to really envision a positive fantasy scenario considering his small role in a jumbled running back committee, not to mention an overall inefficient offense as of late.

Brandon Bolden

Brandon Bolden

RB | NE

Questionable for Monday

Bolden (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Bills, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Bostonreports.

Bolden put together three straight limited practices, which theoretically puts him on track to play Monday. With Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson also absent from the final injury report, expect Bolden to return to his role as a change-of-pace/pass-catching specialist that he's occupied for much of the season.

Darren Waller

Darren Waller

TE | LV

Downgraded to out

Waller (back/knee) was ruled out Saturday ahead of Sunday's game against Washington, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Not much of a surprise given Waller was initially listed as doubtful following Friday's final injury report. Foster Moreau now steps in as the Raiders' top tight end and figures to be a crucial part of the offense considering the third-year LSU product had his best game (6-60-1) in the absence of Waller.

T.J. Watt

T.J. Watt

LB | PIT

Off reserve/COVID-19 list

Watt was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list and will play Sunday against the Ravens.

Watt managed a second negative test Saturday, prompting the Steelers to remove the All-Pro linebacker from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The 27-year-old tested positive for the virus Monday so it's unclear what level of conditioning he might have, but it's a pivotal move regardless given the nature of Sunday's divisional matchup against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

Chris Moore

Chris Moore

WR | HOU

Ready to fill in at slot

Moore is the likely replacement at slot receiver for the injured Danny Amendola (knee) on Sunday against the Colts, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Moore, who opened the season on the practice squad, was the primary slot receiver earlier when Amendola missed four games due to a hamstring injury. He was made a permanent resident on the active roster following Week 5, when he impressed with five grabs, 109 yards and a touchdown in a loss to New England. He's been marginalized since Amendola returned, but Moore's in line for an uptick in targets Sunday and beyond. As is Davion Davis, who could make his debut for the Texans after the team signed him in October. Amendola is expected to miss at least four games, per a source.

Jermar Jefferson

Jermar Jefferson

RB | DET

Slides up depth chart Week 13

Jefferson will compete for touches with Godwin Igwebuike as the secondary option out of the backfield behind Jamaal Williams, who is slated to start and fill a lead role Sunday against the Vikings with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) ruled out for the game, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

For one of the few times all season, Detroit had all four running backs active in its 16-14 loss to Chicago on Thanksgiving Day. Neither Jefferson nor Igwebuike appeared likely to have a role on offense heading into the contest, but Swift's early exit due to a sprained shoulder opened up opportunities for both players to pick up a handful of snaps behind Williams. Still, Igwebuike (four snaps) and Jefferson (three snaps) were barely involved, so Williams looks like he'll be on track to serve as a three-down workhorse Week 13 with Swift out of the picture. There likely won't be enough work left over for either Jefferson or Igwebuike to make a meaningful fantasy impact.

DeVante Parker

DeVante Parker

WR | MIA

May be activated for Week 13

Parker (shoulder) practiced throughout the week and could be activated from injured reserve before Sunday's game against the Giants, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

The Dolphins need to make a move by Saturday at 4 p.m. ET to have Parker in the lineup for Sunday's game, which kicks off at 1 p.m. ET. The veteran wideout is averaging 5.0 catches for 65.4 yards on 8.6 targets per game this year, but he's played just one game since Week 4, and Jaylen Waddle's emergence could leave Parker with a smaller share of the Miami passing game going forward. On the other hand, Parker has done well in the two full games he and Tua Tagovailoa have played together this year, putting up 81 against New England (Week 1) and 85 against Buffalo (Week 8).

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson

RB | SEA

Candidate for Week 13 call-up

Head coach Pete Carroll didn't rule out the possibility of Peterson being elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

The Seahawks will have until Saturday at 4 p.m. ET -- the deadline for Week 13 roster moves -- to decide whether to activate Peterson or keep him on the practice squad. Carroll suggested that a decision on Peterson -- who signed with the organization Wednesday -- will likely hinge on the potential availability of fellow running backs Alex Collins (abdomen), Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf), all of whom are listed as questionable for Sunday's contest. Penny and Homer look like good bets to suit up after concluding the week as full participants in practice, while Collins' status is murkier after he never advanced beyond limited participation.

Austin Seibert

Austin Seibert

K | DET

Done for '21 season

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Seibert (hip) won't return from injured reserve this season, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

Seibert is first eligible to return from IR this weekend against the Vikings after missing the requisite three games with a right hip injury, but since he's not even in condition to resume practicing at this stage, the Lions don't have confidence he'll be able to make it back before Week 18. While Seibert has been sidelined, the Lions have used three kickers in as many games. With Ryan Santoso and Aldrick Rosas having since been moved off the 53-man roster, the job looks like it belongs to Riley Patterson for the time being. The undrafted rookie out of Memphis connected on both of his extra-point attempts last week in his NFL debut in the Lions' 16-14 loss to the Bears.

Brandon Aiyuk

Brandon Aiyuk

WR | SF

May get more work sans Deebo

Aiyuk should be headed for a key role in the 49ers' passing game with fellow wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin) ruled out for Sunday's contest in Seattle, Jerry McDonald of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

In addition to the opportunity for added targets, Aiyuk seems to be on the same page with head coach Kyle Shanahan, with both agreeing that the wideout has come a long way since he was reduced to a part-time role sharing snaps with Trent Sherfield early in the season. Samuel's absence for Week 13 (and possibly Week 14) leaves Aiyuk and tight end George Kittle as the far-and-away top options for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who has led the team to three straight wins while attempting 26 or fewer passes in each game. Aiyuk has done much better of late even with Samuel and Kittle competing for Garoppolo's attention, averaging 4.6 catches for 67.2 yards and 0.4 touchdowns on 6.4 targets per game in Weeks 8 through 12.

Kene Nwangwu

RB | MIN

Should have role on offense

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer hinted that Nwangwu will have a role on offense Sunday against the Lions with top back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) ruled out for the contest, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

In the absence of Cook -- who could be sidelined until the Vikings' Week 15 game in Chicago due to a dislocated shoulder -- Minnesota will likely turn to Alexander Mattison as a three-down workhorse, a role he handled capably in place of an injured Cook in Weeks 3 and 5. Ameer Abdullah had served as Mattison's top understudy in those contests, but since been released and picked up by Carolina, Nwangwu is the lone healthy running back behind Mattison on the 53-man roster. Nwangwu, a rookie fourth-round draft pick, has just two carries to his name (for 16 yards) and has played only two snaps on offense through five appearances, but he's shown some playmaking abilities in space on special teams with two kickoff returns for scores in the past two weeks. Look for the Vikings to find ways to get the ball in Nwangwu's hands and take advantage of his 4.32-second 40-yard-dash speed when he's on the field, but he's still unlikely to see enough snaps and touches to make for a reliable fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.

Trey Sermon

RB | SF

Sitting out Week 13

Sermon (ankle) has been ruled out in advance of Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

For the first time all season, Sermon will be sidelined for an injury-related reason -- he was a healthy inactive in Weeks 1 and 9 -- after he sprained his right ankle in the 49ers' Week 12 win over the Vikings. Head coach Kyle Shanahan suggested that the ankle issue could be serious enough for Sermon to go on injured reserve, but a decision on that front likely won't be finalized until Saturday, the deadline for teams playing Sunday to make Week 13 transactions. Even if Sermon avoids IR and is able to return next week or Week 15, he likely won't have a role on offense so long as Elijah Mitchell, Jeff Wilson and JaMycal Hasty are all healthy.

Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson

QB | HOU

Ruled out for Week 13

Watson (not injury-related) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Watson remains on the Texans' roster, but he's slated to be on the team's inactive list for the rest of the season. Tyrod Taylor is in line to handle Houston's starting quarterback duties Sunday with Davis Mills slated to serve as his backup.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

Dons questionable tag again

Murray (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago after practicing in a limited fashion Wednesday through Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Even with the benefit for a Week 12 bye to aid his recovery, Murray is questionable for the fourth game in a row, with head coach Kliff Kingsbury once again characterizing the franchise signal-caller as a "game-day decision," according to Urban. Since Murray also logged a trio of limited practices Week 11 before ultimately sitting out a third straight game in the Cardinals' win over the Seahawks, it's tough to gauge whether he truly made enough progress to return to action following the bye week. Like Murray, star wideout DeAndre Hopkins has also missed three straight contests and is being labeled a game-time call, but he may be trending in the wrong direction after following up a pair of limited practices to begin the week with no activity Friday. Colt McCoy will stay ready for the start in case Murray isn't able to go this week, with a final word on the latter's status set to come when Arizona releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Practices, listed as questionable

Beckham (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville after returning to practice Friday as a limited participant, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

According to Cameron DaSilva of USA Today, Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he expects Beckham to play this weekend, after the wideout sandwiched a pair of limited practices around an absence Thursday. The Rams have depth receiver Ben Skowronek (back) healthy again if they want Beckham to suit up but handle a reduced role, following a 10-target, 98-percent snap share outing in last week's loss to Green Bay. The Rams and Jaguars are scheduled for a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson

WR | LV

Questionable for Week 13

Jackson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington after practicing on a limited basis Friday, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Jackson, who was on the field for 42 of Las Vegas' 87 offensive snaps in the team's 36-33 overtime win over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day, sat out Thursday's practice, but his return to the field Friday has him trending in the right direction in advance of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. Jackson made a splash against the Cowboys by catching three of his four targets for 102 yards, while scoring a 56-yard TD. When healthy, the 35-year-old speedster can still make the occasional big play, but with Hunter Renfrow, Zay Jones and Bryan Edwards also in the Raiders' wideout mix, Jackson can't be counted on to see steady target volume on a weekly basis.

Questionable after limited practice

Henderson (thigh) returned to practice Friday as a limited participant and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Rams head coach Sean McVay already revealed that Henderson and Odell Beckham (hip) will be game-time decisions ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, but only Beckham was deemed as expected to play. If Henderson is made inactive, Sony Michel could be tasked with a three-down role, much like he handled Week 3 (74 percent snap share, 20 carries, four targets), when Henderson missed a win over Tampa Bay due to a rib injury. With depth back and special teamer Buddy Howell (thigh) already ruled out for Sunday's game, the Rams may promote Javian Hawkins and/or Mekhi Sargent from the practice squad before Sunday even if they anticipate Henderson playing.

Mike Boone

Mike Boone

RB | DEN

Likely headed for No. 2 role

Boone is expected to serve as the Broncos' No. 2 running back behind Javonte Williams in Sunday's game against the Chiefs with Melvin Gordon (hip/shoulder) listed as doubtful for the contest, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Gordon wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week, making it likely that he'll be inactive for the first time all season. Through their first 11 games, the Broncos have deployed a near-even backfield timeshare of Gordon and Williams, with both receiving similar snap and touch counts in nearly every game. That has left scant work for Boone since coming off injured reserve Week 6, though he showed the ability to produce on the occasions he saw carries for the Vikings the past three seasons. Even so, rather than simply plugging Boone in for Gordon as part of a timeshare, the Broncos are more likely to prepare the Williams for his first look in a three-down bellcow role, with Boone likely mixing in when the rookie requires a breather.

JaMycal Hasty

JaMycal Hasty

RB | SF

Returning this Sunday

Hasty (ankle) is cleared to return for Sunday's game in Seattle, with no designation on the 49ers' final Week 13 injury report, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Hasty has now missed six games with ankle injuries (Weeks 3-6, 10-12) and worked as San Francisco's passing-down specialist in the five others. The role has mostly gone to Kyle Jusczyk when Hasty's been out, though Jeff Wilson is also capable. In any case, Hasty is averaging only 2.6 carries and 2.6 catches for 27.8 yards per game, with his usage topped by that of early down back Elijah Mitchell (17.9 carries, 1.8 catches per game).

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs

RB | LV

Questionable for Sunday

Jacobs (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington after logging limited practices Thursday and Friday, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

As a result, Jacobs' availability will be worth monitoring as Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff approaches, though it's possible media reports emerge prior to the first wave of games this weekend that offer more clarity on the running back's status. If Jacobs ends up limited or sits out versus Washington, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard would be next up for snaps out of the Las Vegas backfield, with Peyton Barber a candidate to be made active after having been a healthy scratch Week 12 against the Cowboys.

Foster Moreau

Foster Moreau

TE | LV

Likely to replace Waller

Moreau is expected to serve as the Raiders' top tight end Sunday against Washington with Darren Waller (back/knee) listed as doubtful for the contest, Josh Dubow of the Associated Press reports.

Waller wasn't able to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday, so barring some dramatic improvement leading up to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, he'll be inactive for the second time this season. When Waller sat out Week 7 against the Eagles with an ankle injury, Moreau stepped in to play all of the Raiders' 63 offensive snaps and finished with a 6-60-1 receiving line on six targets. He actually handled more snaps (69) following Waller's early exit in the Raiders' Thanksgiving Day win over the Cowboys, but Moreau reeled in only one of his five targets for a three-yard gain. Moreau thus looks like a somewhat volatile fantasy option for Week 13, even with another heavy snap share seemingly on the horizon.

Deebo Samuel

Deebo Samuel

WR | SF

Officially ruled out

Samuel (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Seattle.

While Samuel didn't practice this week, reporters saw him working on a side field with the training staff Thursday and Friday, suggesting he's still on track to miss only a game or two. There's no direct replacement for Samuel's unique, oft-changing role, but in terms of snaps, Jauan Jennings and Trent Sherfield are the most likely beneficiaries, while Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle also get larger target-share projections. Samuel will try to make it back for either Week 14 against the Bengals or Week 15 against the Falcons.

Darren Waller

Darren Waller

TE | LV

Listed as doubtful for Week 13

Waller (back/knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Waller was unable to practice this week and is thus trending toward being included on the Raiders' Week 13 inactive list, which will be released 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. Assuming that's the case, Foster Moreau would be in line to serve as the Raiders' top pass-catching tight end in Week 13, a context that would make him a viable streaming option in fantasy lineups. When Waller was sidelined in Week 7 against the Eagles, Moreau played 100 percent of the team's offensive snaps and caught all six of his targets for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott

RB | DAL

Facing restricted rep count

Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy acknowledged Friday that Elliott has been on a rep count in games for the past month while the running back continues to manage a knee injury that first cropped up in Week 4, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. "It's part of how we want to play," McCarthy said, while also noting that he believes the Cowboys' 10-day break prior to the team's Week 14 game against Washington will be beneficial for Elliott, according to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News.

Elliott's restricted snap counts have been evident just by looking at his recent game logs. Including Thursday's 27-17 win over the Saints, Elliott hasn't played more than 70 percent of the Cowboys' offensive snaps in five straight games, after topping that percentage in all but two of Dallas' first seven contests. The decline in snaps has come with a small downturn in touches (16.9 carries and 3.7 targets per game Weeks 1 through 8, 11.0 carries and 4.6 targets Weeks 9 through 13), allowing Tony Pollard to take on a more heightened role in the game plan. Though the longer turnaround for the Cowboys' Week 14 divisional matchup is welcome, McCarthy didn't promise that Elliott would be in store for an uptick in snaps and touches. In fact, given that Elliott is averaging a woeful 3.2 yards per carry over the past four games compared to Pollard's 5.7 YPC during that stretch, it wouldn't be surprising if the latter took on more volume in the weeks to come as Dallas looks to secure a playoff spot.

Denzel Mims

Denzel Mims

WR | NYJ

Opportunity knocks in return

Mims should see an expanded role in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Joey Chandler of NJ Advance Media reports.

Mims' return from the reserve/COVID-19 list coincided with Keelan Cole's placement on the list, and Corey Davis (groin) is a game-time decision. Even if Davis suit up, he's not expected to play his usual complement of snaps, creating an opportunity for Mims to make some noise in his return. The 2020 second-round pick's career is off to an underwhelming start, but Mims could begin to turn the narrative around by making the most of this opportunity.

Rashaad Penny

Rashaad Penny

RB | SEA

Takes questionable tag into weekend

Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Even though Penny was able to practice fully Thursday, the Seahawks evidently aren't convinced that he's fully healthy heading into Sunday's contest. However, unless he experienced a setback coming out of Friday's practice, Penny will most likely be a part of a Week 13 backfield rotation that could include lead ballcarrier Alex Collins (abdomen) and pass-catching specialist Travis Homer (calf), both of whom are listed as questionable. If Seattle has pessimism about at least one of Collins or Penny being available Sunday, the team would likely elevated the newly signed Adrian Peterson from the practice squad to provide a healthier option on early downs.

Alex Collins

Alex Collins

RB | SEA

Questionable for Sunday

Collins (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Fellow backs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) also are listed as questionable, but both were full practice participants Friday, while Collins remained limited. On the other hand, Collins has been playing through an abdomen/groin injury for the past two months without missing a game, whereas Penny and Homer were inactive last week. DeeJay Dallas actually ended up with the most snaps among Seattle backs the past two games, replacing Homer on passing downs and then seeing extra work with the Seahawks falling behind and abandoning the run. In any case, this is the healthiest Seattle's backfield has been in weeks, and it comes right after veteran Adrian Peterson was signed to the practice squad. Collins is the incumbent lead back with six starts in the past seven games, but it's hard to say how much longer he'll keep the role after averaging a mere 3.6 yards per carry during that stretch.

Chris Evans

Chris Evans

RB | CIN

Doubtful for Week 13

Evans (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Bengals team reporter Marisa Contipelli reports.

With Evans expected to sit out, Samaje Perine will work as the lone backup to Joe Mixon against the porous Chargers run defense. If Evans can't play Sunday, his next opportunity to take the field would come in Week 14 against the 49ers.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks

WR | HOU

Gets questionable tag for Week 13

Cooks (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Cooks is one of six men on the Texans' Week 13 injury report due to an ailment, though none of those players' illnesses are related to COVID-19. Though Cooks may still be working to regain conditioning after sitting out practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday, his ability to return to the field as a limited participant Friday bodes well for his chances of being able to serve as Houston's No. 1 wideout come Sunday. Fantasy managers planning on deploying Cooks in weekly lineups will get official clarity on his status no later than 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, when Houston will release its inactive list.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley

WR | HOU

Questionable against Indy

Conley (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

This designation was expected after Conley managed to practice in limited fashion Friday following two absences to start the week. Among Houston's other wide receivers, Brandin Cooks (illness) is also questionable after following an identical practice schedule to Conley, while Danny Amendola (knee) has been ruled out.

David Johnson

David Johnson

RB | HOU

Uncertain for Sunday

Johnson (illness/thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Though the questionable tag implies a player has a 50-50 shot at playing come game day, Johnson's inability to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday isn't a promising sign that he'll suit up. A final call on Johnson's status will come when the Texans unveil their inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. In Houston's first game without both Mark Ingram (traded to New Orleans) and Phillip Lindsay (waived), Johnson (10 carries, three targets) and Rex Burkhead (12 carries, three targets) had a near-even split of the backfield touches in the team's Week 12 loss to the Jets, though Burkhead outsnapped Johnson by a 35-20 margin. If Johnson can't go Sunday, Burkhead would likely be in store for a larger share of the bye, though Royce Freeman could still be involved in the game plan as a secondary option out of the backfield.

Listed as questionable for SNF

Edwards-Helaire is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after he missed Friday's practice due to an illness.

Per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star, Edwards-Helaire was added to Kansas City's Week 13 injury report after he sat out Friday due to a case of the stomach flu. That said, head coach Andy Reid indicated that Edwards-Helaire "should be fine" for Sunday's game, which kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET. In his return from injured reserve Week 11 against the Cowboys, Edwards-Helaire played fewer snaps than Darrel Williams (36 to 30), but the former handily outpaced the latter in touches (14 to 6) and yardage (76 to 26).

Trevon Wesco

Trevon Wesco

TE | NYJ

Doubtful with ankle injury

Wesco (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

It's surprising Wesco isn't listed as out after coach Robert Saleh said earlier in the week that the fullback/tight end is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. The Jets are holding out slight hope for surprise improvement in Wesco's ankle, but he wasn't able to practice in any capacity during the week. If Wesco sits, as expected, New York's tight end depth will consist of just Ryan Griffin and undrafted rookie Kenny Yeboah.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

Questionable after limited practice

Davis (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia after logging a limited practice Friday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Davis was able to practice in some capacity for the first time this week after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday entirely. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Davis likely won't play more than a part-time role against the Eagles, if he's able to play at all. With Keelan Cole on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Denzel Mims could see extended playing time opposite Elijah Moore, with Jamison Crowder in the slot.

Javonte Williams

RB | DEN

Primed for lead role

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said he's confident in Williams' ability to handle a lead role out of the backfield Sunday in Kansas City while Melvin Gordon (hip) is listed as doubtful for the contest and not expected to play, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.

Williams and Gordon have had a near-even split of the backfield snaps and touches through the Broncos' first 11 games of the season, but Week 13 will likely mark the first time either of the two gets a look in a featured role. At least on a per-touch basis, Williams (4.9 yards per carry, 7.1 yards per reception) has provided reason for excitement, and the prospect of him handling his largest role of the season should make him an appealing lineup option in most weekly season-long leagues. He'll be taking aim at a Kansas City defense that has generally been friendly for running-back production, aside from allowing touchdowns. The Chiefs are permitting 4.38 yards per carry (22nd in NFL), 7.07 yards per target (28th) and an 84.5 percent catch rate (29th) to running backs this season.

Phillip Lindsay

Phillip Lindsay

RB | MIA

Doubtful for Sunday

Lindsay (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

With Lindsay trending toward inactive status this weekend, Salvon Ahmed and Patrick Laird figure to see added Week 13 opportunities behind behind top back Myles Gaskin.

Jack Doyle

Jack Doyle

TE | IND

Questionable, despite full practice

Doyle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Despite bumping up his practice activity each day of the week, Doyle was given an injury designation for the first time since Week 4. Since he turned in a full practice Friday, Doyle seems more likely than not to suit up Sunday, but an official word on his status won't come until the Colts release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Doyle has outpaced fellow tight ends Mo Alie-Cox and Kylen Granson in snaps over each of the past eight weeks, accruing a 16-159-3 receiving line on 24 targets over that span.

Kaden Smith

Kaden Smith

TE | NYG

Moves to injured reserve

Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Smith was already ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins, and he'll now be sidelined for at least two additional games. Chris Myarick should operate as New York's No. 3 tight end behind Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Officially questionable

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Hopkins and coach Kliff Kingsbury downplayed the wideout's absence from Friday's practice, following limited participation Wednesday and Thursday. It might be nothing, but fantasy managers should stay tuned even after mid-week reports suggested both Hopkins and QB Kyler Murray (ankle) were on track to return this Sunday. Kingsbury, while mostly optimistic, did refer to both Hopkins and Murray as game-time decisions for Sunday. To that end, a 1:00 ET kickoff could prove helpful, with the Cardinals releasing their Week 13 inactive list Sunday morning.

Devin Duvernay

Devin Duvernay

WR | BAL

Cleared to face Steelers

Duvernay (thigh) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Duvernay upgraded his activity level with each subsequent practice and ended up avoiding an injury designation altogether. Most of Duvernay's impact comes as a return man on special teams, though he also provides depth at wide receiver on offense.

Miles Sanders

Miles Sanders

RB | PHI

In clear for Week 13

Sanders (ankle) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Sanders already looked as though he would be in the clear for Sunday after he practiced fully Thursday, but his ability to do take every rep for the second day in a row erased any lingering concern about his health. At this stage, the main concern for the proficiency of the Eagles' ground game is the health of dual-threat quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle), who is listed as questionable after a trio of limited practices this week and appears to be a true game-time decision as Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff approaches. Additionally, the Eagles will be without short-yardage specialist Jordan Howard (knee), while change-of-pace back Boston Scott (illness) is listed as questionable. Rookie Kenny Gainwell looms as the lone healthy depth option behind Sanders, who would likely have access to his largest share of the Eagles' rushing workload of the season if Hurts sits out or is limited Sunday. The presence of Hurts (eight rushing touchdowns) and Howard has been especially damaging to Sanders' red-zone opportunities, as the third-year back has yet to find the end zone through nine games.

Taysom Hill

Taysom Hill

QB | NO

No surgery, plans to play

Hill (finger) isn't expected to need surgery and will attempt to play through an injury known as mallet finger on his throwing hand, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's reportedly not as severe as Russell Wilson's mallet finger earlier this year. That doesn't necessarily mean Hill will be successful -- he did throw four INTs in Thursday's loss to Dallas after injuring his hand -- but he'll at least attempt to continue playing, presumably as the starting QB. It is possible he could move back to his non-QB role if that doesn't work out, in which case Trevor Siemian would step back in under center. For fantasy purposes, Hill mostly provides value with his feet, but it's still not ideal to add another limitation to his passing. It does sound like he's tentatively on track for another start at QB in Week 14 at the Jets, benefiting from extra rest after the Saints' TNF loss to Dallas.

Doubtful for Week 13

Gordon (hip/shoulder) will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, in the event that Gordon is likely on the inactive list for Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff, Javonte Williams would be in line to head the Broncos' Week 13 backfield. Gordon and Williams have been working in a roughly dead-even timeshare all season, so Week 13 will likely be the first chance either running back gets an opportunity in a clear featured role.

Sony Michel

Sony Michel

RB | LAR

Could be busy with Henderson iffy

Michel may move into the lead backfield role with teammate Darrell Henderson (thigh) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Henderson's injury isn't thought to be serious, but he was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday, which likely puts him on the wrong side of questionable ahead of a game in which the Rams are heavy favorites. There's also a scenario where Henderson is active and starts, but shares more of the workload with Michel than usual. When healthy, Henderson typically has handled a three-down role, with a large portion of Michel's snaps either coming in garbage time or when Henderson was banged up. That said, head coach Sean McVay made it clear he trusts Michel to lead the Rams' rushing attack and keep the team on schedule, even making a comparison to 2018 when C.J. Anderson stepped in for the more explosive Todd Gurley and helped the Rams reach a Super Bowl. The team doesn't expect Henderson to miss an extended period the way Gurley did that season, but it sounds like Michel could be busy for the next week or two.

Raheem Mostert

Raheem Mostert

RB | SF

Ditches crutches

Mostert (knee) announced Friday that he's been cleared to walk without the aid of crutches, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's an early milestone in the recovery process for Mostert, who underwent surgery Oct. 12 to address chipped cartilage in the meniscus of his left knee. Mostert is without a clear timeline to complete his rehab from the unique knee procedure, but he's already ruled himself out from playing again this season and is turning his focus to getting healthy for OTAs. Scheduled to become a free agent this spring, Mostert will likely need full medical clearance from doctors before any team offers him a contract.

Darren Waller

Darren Waller

TE | LV

Still not practicing

Waller (back/knee) remained sidelined at practice Friday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia previously labeled the tight end as "week-to-week," so Waller's absence from a third consecutive practices come as little surprise. He's trending toward being officially ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington later Friday, and if that's the case, Foster Moreau will take on an expanded role at tight end.

Jamaal Williams

Jamaal Williams

RB | DET

Ready for lead role

Williams is set to led the Detroit backfield this weekend with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

Williams could be tasked with a heavy workload after finishing with 15 carries and five targets last week, when Swift departed with a shoulder sprain in the second quarter of an eventual 16-14 loss to the Bears. Depth backs Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike both picked up a few snaps, but they combined for just two touches (both to Igwebuike), while Williams piled up 20.

Pat Freiermuth

Pat Freiermuth

TE | PIT

Cleared for Sunday's game

Freiermuth (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

The tight end, who suffered a concussion during Week 12 action, practiced fully this past week and has been cleared to play versus Baltimore. With Eric Ebron (knee) on injured reserve, Freiermuth is the Steelers' clear-cut top option at his position, a context that puts him on track for enough snaps and targets to merit weekly fantasy consideration.

T.J. Watt

T.J. Watt

LB | PIT

Not on track to play Sunday

The Steelers didn't provide an update on Watt (illness) following Friday's practice, signaling that he won't return from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Given that Watt's placement on the list Monday was the result of the positive test, he would need to show diminished symptoms and test negative for the virus on two occasions at least 24 hours apart in order to play Sunday. Since the Steelers haven't suggested that Watt has submitted even the first of those two negative test results, the team appears to have essentially ruled him out from playing this week. Watt's expected absence is another blow to a reeling Pittsburgh defense that will also be without top cover corner Joe Haden (foot) for a third straight game.

Jakeem Grant Sr.

Jakeem Grant Sr.

WR | CHI

Could have role in three-wide sets

Grant may be in line to have a regular role in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Cardinals with Allen Robinson (hamstring) listed as doubtful for the contest and with Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs) ruled out, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Wideout Darnell Mooney and tight end Cole Kmet are likely to be the top targets for quarterback Andy Dalton -- who is making a second straight start in place of the injured Justin Fields (doubtful, ribs) -- but the expected absences of Robinson and Goodwin leave Damiere Byrd and Grant as the next men up at receiver. The Bears are expected to promote at least one of Isaiah Coulter, Rodney Adams Nsimba Webster and Dazz Newsome from the practice squad for additional depth at receiver, but none of the quartet has an NFL catch on his resume. With that in mind, Grant looks on pace to see at least a handful of looks from Dalton out of the slot, as he did in the Bears' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions. After working almost exclusively as a return man since being acquired from the Dolphins on Oct. 5, Grant hauled in two of four targets for 25 yards across 19 snaps on offense in Detroit.

Questionable, but expected to play

Coach Sean McVay said he'd be surprised if Beckham (hip) doesn't play in Sunday's game against Jacksonville, though the wideout will be listed as questionable on the final injury report, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Beckham was a limited practice participant Wednesday before sitting out Thursday, but it sounds like he's doing better at the end of the week. He played 98 percent of the Rams' offensive snaps in the Week 12 loss at Green Bay, catching five of 10 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in his first game in a full-time role with his new team. It is possible the hip pointer impacts Beckham's workload, assuming he ends up playing, though coach Sean McVay isn't exactly known for restricted snap counts.

Marquise Goodwin

Marquise Goodwin

WR | CHI

Ruled out for Week 13

Goodwin (foot/ribs) won't play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Goodwin was unable to practice at all throughout the week, culminating in the veteran wide receiver's first absence of the season. With Allen Robinson (hamstring) doubtful, the Bears will be down to Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant at wide receiver against Arizona unless Robinson suits up or the team elevates somebody from the practice squad.

Damiere Byrd

Damiere Byrd

WR | CHI

Enhanced role awaits

Byrd is expected to fill a starting role at receiver alongside Darnell Mooney with Allen Robinson (hamstring) listed as doubtful and Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs) listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The No. 4 receiver on the depth chart for most of the season, Byrd already saw an elevated opportunity in the Bears' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions while Robinson was sidelined for a second straight game and after Goodwin exited early in the contest. Though Mooney (5-123-0 receiving line on eight targets) was the clear No. 1 wideout for Chicago, Byrd turned in a modest line of four catches for 42 yards on five targets while serving as a secondary pass catcher. The expected absences of both Robinson and Goodwin for a full game could lead to a slight volume bump for Byrd, but he would probably benefit more from the Bears falling behind early in the home game and being forced into a pass-heavy game script.

Questionable for Sunday

Coach Sean McVay said Henderson (thigh) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

The same goes for WR Odell Beckham (thigh), though in his case McVay said he'd be surprised if the wideout didn't play, while a similar comment regarding Henderson was noticeably absent. The Rams' starting back thus appears truly questionable, with Sony Michel set to fill in and likely handle a large workload if Henderson lands on the inactive list before Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff.

Cole Kmet

Cole Kmet

TE | CHI

Groin no longer bothersome

Kmet (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Kmet trended in the right direction throughout the week, as he missed practice Wednesday before upgrading to a limited session Thursday and practicing fully Friday to gain clearance. The 22-year-old tight end is still searching for his first touchdown of the season, but he has topped 65 receiving yards twice in the past three games after failing to reach 50 in any of his first 24 NFL contests. With quarterback Justin Fields (ribs) doubtful, Kmet will likely be catching passes from Andy Dalton against Arizona.

Listed as doubtful again

Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

It's his third straight week with no practice participation and a 'doubtful' designation on the final injury report. Robinson didn't play the first two times, and the Bears' WR depth will really be tested if he's out for a third week, as expected, given that Marquise Goodwin (out/foot) is also injured now. That leaves Andy Dalton with Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant as his likely WR targets behind top option Darnell Mooney.

Justin Fields

Justin Fields

QB | CHI

Doubtful, won't start

Fields (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Head coach Matt Nagy confirmed Andy Dalton will get another start, saying Fields isn't quite ready to play. Though the Bears are listing Fields as doubtful rather than out, the rookie looks like he'll just be the backup anyway in the unlikely event he avoids the inactive list. Fields logged limited practices Wednesday through Friday, perhaps setting him up for a return to the starting role Week 14 at Green Bay.

Andy Dalton

Andy Dalton

QB | CHI

Named starter with Fields doubtful

Dalton will start Sunday's game against the Cardinals with fellow quarterback Justin Fields (ribs) listed doubtful for the contest, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.comreports.

Fields was a limited practice participant throughout Wednesday through Friday and could make it back as soon as Week 14 in Green Bay. First, Dalton will make another start, likely without the help of Allen Robinson, who's listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury for the third week in a row after missing the Bears' previous two games.

James Robinson

James Robinson

RB | JAX

Gets Week 13 designation

The Jaguars list Robinson (heel/knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Robinson has been tending to the pair of injuries for more than a month, but he's suited up in each of the Jaguars' last three games. Though he's seen his snaps scaled back in those contests compared to earlier in the season, Robinson hasn't had to sacrifice many touches, as he's averaging 13.7 carries and four targets during that three-game stretch. Though he was limited in all three of the Jaguars' practices this week, expect Robinson to ultimately avoid the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff and serve as Jacksonville's lead back.

Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney

WR | NYG

Doubtful for Sunday

Toney (oblique/quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Miami, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

With Toney and Sterling Shepard (quad) both doubtful, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton figure to operate as New York's top two wideouts, while Pharoh Cooper could be called up from the practice squad to handle the slot/No. 3 role again. Alternatively, the Giants could turn to John Ross (illness/quad) or Collin Johnson as the No. 3 receiver for backup QB Mike Glennon on Sunday.

John Ross

John Ross

WR | NYG

On extensive Week 13 injury report

Ross (illness/quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ Advance Media reports.

Ross has been limited by a non-COVID illness in practice throughout the week, in addition to a quadriceps injury. That's been a common theme in New York's receiving corps of late, as both Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney are doubtful with quadriceps injuries of their own, and Toney has an oblique issue on top of that. Assuming Ross plays while both Shepard and Toney sit, he would likely compete for the No. 3 wide receiver role with Collin Johnson and possibly Pharoh Cooper, who was called up from the Giants' practice squad last week and played more snaps than either Ross or Johnson.

Sterling Shepard

Sterling Shepard

WR | NYG

Listed as doubtful

Shepard (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Miami, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The same goes for Kadarius Toney (oblique/quad), while starting QB Daniel Jones (neck) is ruled out. Pharoh Cooper filled in as the No. 3 WR last week after being called up from the practice squad, but John Ross (quad/illness) and Collin Johnson could also be options for the role this Sunday in Miami.

David Johnson

David Johnson

RB | HOU

Not seen at practice

Johnson (illness/thigh) wasn't spotted at practice Friday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

The Texans' final Week 13 injury report will be released later Friday and should lend some clarity with regard to the running back's status for Sunday's game against the Colts. If Johnson is ruled out this weekend, Rex Burkhead would likely lead the Houston backfield, with Royce Freeman next in line for work behind him.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley

WR | HOU

Returns to practice Friday

Conley (illness) returned to the practice field Friday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Conley's return bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Colts, though he'll likely carry a questionable designation into the contest. He had missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday due to a non-COVID illness.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks

WR | HOU

Back at practice

Cooks (illness) returned to practice Friday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After missing the Texans' last two practices with a non-COVID-19-related illness, Cooks was back on the field Friday. The team's upcoming final injury report will be released later Friday and will clarify whether the wideout approaches Sunday's game against the Colts with a designation.

Likely replacing McKissic this week

Coach Ron Rivera suggested Smallwood could be called up from the practice squad to replace J.D. McKissic (concussion) as Washington's passing-down back Sunday against the Raiders, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

The other options to replace McKissic are lead runner Antonio Gibson (who has three straight games with 19-plus carries) or rookie Jaret Patterson (who thus far has only worked as Gibson's backup for early downs). The 27-year-old Smallwood last took an NFL touch in 2019, but he could have a decent-sized role this Sunday given that McKissic is averaging 4.4 carries and 3.9 receptions for 55.4 total yards per game.

Headed for Week 13 start

Mattison is expected to fill a lead role out of the Minnesota backfield Sunday in Detroit with Dalvin Cook (shoulder) ruled out for the contest, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.

Mattison already appeared to be tracking toward his third start of the season after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that Cook was due to miss the Vikings' next two games with a dislocated left shoulder, but head coach Mike Zimmer wasn't immediately willing to rule the 26-year-old out for the Week 13 matchup. Zimmer finally relented Friday after Cook missed his third straight practice, leaving Mattison and Kene Nwangwu as the lone healthy running backs currently on the 53-man roster. Given that Nwangwu has been entrusted with little more than a special-teams role this season, Mattison should be well positioned to play at least two-thirds of Minnesota's offensive snaps while likely taking on 20-plus touches, just as he did in starts Week 3 and 5. In the Week 5 matchup with this same Lions squad, Mattison carried 25 times for 113 yards and hauled in all seven of his targets for 40 yards and a touchdown. Mattison looks like a must-start option in just about every fantasy league in Week 13.

Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook

RB | MIN

Officially ruled out

The Vikings have ruled Cook (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

There was never much doubt Cook would sit out Week 13 after he didn't participate in practices Wednesday through Friday upon suffering a painful shoulder injury during the Vikings' Week 12 loss to San Francisco. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that Cook was expected to miss two games before returning Week 15 in Chicago, and Josina Anderson of USA Today relayed Friday that timeline remains intact, even though the running back is "doing better" in his recovery. At this point, however, the Vikings haven't made anything official for Cook beyond ruling him out for this weekend's game in Detroit. Alexander Mattison should get all the snaps and touches he can handle in a friendly matchup this Sunday, backed by rookie speedster Kene Nwangwu and potentially practice-squadder A.J. Rose, who would need to be called up by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to play in Sunday's game.

Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

QB | ARI

To be treated as game-time call

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Murray (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Bears, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray seems on track to play after practicing again Friday, while DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is perhaps more of a question mark. That said, there's been no confirmation on either player one way or another, so both should be treated as game-time decisions unless there's something more definitive before inactive lists are released Sunday morning. The Cardinals have an early 1:00 ET kickoff this week, traveling to Chicago to face a Bears squad that has more than a few key injuries of its own.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Headed for game-time decision

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Hopkins (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with Chicago, Dana Scott of The Arizona Republic reports.

Kingsbury seemed to downplay Hopkins' absence from the media-access portion of Friday's practice, saying the Cardinals wanted to be "smart" with their handling of the injury. Kingsbury also acknowledged some element of not wanting the opponent to know, especially when dealing with crucial players like Hopkins and QB Kyler Murray, who also is being treated as a game-time decision (with an ankle injury). There seems to be less concern over Murray than Hopkins, but both figure to be listed as questionable on the final injury report leading up to a 1:00 ET kickoff this Sunday.

Questionable against Raiders

Seals-Jones (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Even if he plays, Seals-Jones is expected to serve as the top backup to tight end Logan Thomas, who returned from a hamstring injury last week and played 77 percent of the offensive snaps in a win over the Seahawks. Seals-Jones' hip injury has sidelined him for both of Washington's past two games.

Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel

WR | WAS

Listed as questionable, officially

Samuel (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Per John Keim of ESPN.com, Samuel is expected to play for a second straight week, and while his role might grow compared to the two touches and 24-percent snap share he handled in last week's win over Seattle, he's unlikely to be a full-time player. Any extra snaps for Samuel this Sunday -- assuming he plays -- likely will come at the expense of DeAndre Carter and/or Adam Humphries.

J.D. McKissic

J.D. McKissic

RB | WAS

Out with concussion

McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

McKissic hasn't practiced since suffering the injury in Monday's 17-15 win over the Seahawks. His absence leaves passing-down snaps in the hands of either starter Antonio Gibson, rookie Jaret Patterson or practice-squad player Wendell Smallwood. It could be a mix of the two, or perhaps even all three.

Taysom Hill

Taysom Hill

QB | NO

May need finger surgery

Hill is believed to have torn a tendon in the middle finger of his throwing hand, with the injury potentially requiring surgery at some point, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It isn't clear if Hill would get surgery soon or try to play through the injury and wait until the offseason. He's reportedly scheduled for more tests after playing through the injury in the majority of Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys. The initial belief is that he may have "mallet finger," similar to the injury Seahawks QB Russell Wilson dealt with earlier this year.

Qadree Ollison

Qadree Ollison

RB | ATL

Could get Week 13 call-up

The Falcons are considering elevating Ollison from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

One way or another, a firm resolution on Ollison's status for this weekend should arrive no later than 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, the deadline for teams playing Sunday to make Week 13 roster moves. After missing practice time last week while tending to an illness, Ollison wasn't summoned from the practice squad ahead of the Falcons' eventual win over the Jaguars, but he led Atlanta with nine carries for 34 yards in the team's Week 11 loss to the Patriots while Cordarrelle Patterson was out with an ankle injury. Patterson was productive in his return to the lineup in Jacksonville and looks healthy ahead of Sunday's contest, so Ollison will likely be in line for a bit role out of the backfield if he's added to the roster this week.

Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew

QB | PHI

Could draw Week 13 start

Minshew took about half of the available reps with the Eagles' first-team offense this week and could be needed to start Sunday against the Jets with Jalen Hurts (ankle) listed as questionable for the contest, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Head coach Nick Sirianni noted that he's confident in either of his two quarterbacks, but Hurts will retain the starting job if he's able to make enough progress in his recovery from the sprained ankle that limited his practice activity this week. Since the Eagles kick off among the early wave of Sunday games at 1 p.m. ET, fantasy managers looking for clarity on Hurts' status should have alternatives available in the event he's inactive, with Minshew representing one of those options. Though his lone game action this season has come in garbage time of a blowout win over the Lions in Week 8, Minshew showed during his previous two seasons in Jacksonville that he can do an adequate job of directing an offense while presenting some threat as a scrambler, though not nearly to the degree of Hurts. Over 24 career games, Minshew owns a 63 percent completion rate to go with 6.9 yards per attempt and a 37:11 TD:INT.

Logan Thomas

Logan Thomas

TE | WAS

No injury designation

Thomas (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Las Vegas, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The lack of designation comes as no surprise after Thomas took on six targets and a 77-percent offensive snap share in Monday's win over the Seahawks, his first action following a six-game stint on injured reserve. He's the likely No. 2 option for quarterback Taylor Heinicke behind wideout Terry McLaurin, especially with passing-down back J.D. McKissic (concussion) out this week.

Antonio Gibson

Antonio Gibson

RB | WAS

Good to go

Gibson (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Las Vegas, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Gibson's practice reps remain limited due to a stress fracture, but he hasn't missed a game all year and has three in a row with 19-plus carries since a Week 9 bye. He now has a chance to add some extra snaps (and targets), with J.D. McKissic (concussion) out for at least one game and possibly more. The other options to fill McKissic's snaps are rookie Jaret Patterson and practice-squad player Wendell Smallwood.

Boston Scott

Boston Scott

RB | PHI

Questionable, expects to play

Scott (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, but he believes he'll be ready despite missing practice this week, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Miles Sanders (ankle) has been cleared from the injury report, while Jordan Howard (knee) is confirmed out for the second straight week. It's setting up nicely for Sanders to have a big game, though Scott should also get his share of snaps and touches if he shakes off the illness before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Rookie Kenneth Gainwell is Option C, having mostly seen playing time in clear passing situations this season. Scott has plenty of experience as a passing-down back in his own right, but the Eagles also use him on early downs now, especially when Howard isn't in the picture.

Jordan Howard

Jordan Howard

RB | PHI

Out for Week 13

Howard (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Howard hasn't returned to practice and will now miss a second straight game, but the Eagles' upcoming Week 14 bye improves his odds of avoiding a third absence. Boston Scott (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 13, while Miles Sanders (ankle) has been cleared from the injury report. Behind them, rookie Kenneth Gainwell has been getting some snaps, particularly on pass plays.

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts

QB | PHI

Questionable for Sunday

Head coach Nick Sirianni said Hurts (ankle) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, after splitting first-team practice reps evenly with Gardner Minshew this week, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sirianni sounded more confident earlier in the week, while Hurts himself said Wednesday that he would be fine for Sunday's game. The 23-year-old quarterback now appears closer to truly questionable, though it's a situation where gamesmanship could be a factor, as the Eagles' running game in particular would look different with backup Gardner Minshew replacing Hurts, who enters Sunday ranked 10th in the league for rushing yards (695) and tied for fifth in rushing touchdowns (eight). Whatever the case, fantasy managers will need to treat Hurts as truly questionable, with the benefit of an early kickoff (1 p.m. ET on Sunday) if he ends up a game-time decision.

Sterling Shepard

Sterling Shepard

WR | NYG

Not looking good for Sunday

Shepard (quad) doesn't appear likely to play Sunday in Miami, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

It sounds like he isn't doing much at Friday's practice after returning Thursday as a limited participant. With Kadarius Toney (oblique/quad) a step behind Shepard and QB Daniel Jones (neck) now expected to miss time, it'll likely be Mike Glennon throwing passes to Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram come Sunday. There's also an opportunity for depth players like John Ross (illness), Collin Johnson and Kyle Rudolph (ankle) to see extra snaps/targets, but in a difficult matchup against a hot defense with a backup QB at the helm.

D'Andre Swift

D'Andre Swift

RB | DET

Confirmed out for Week 13

Lions head coach Dan Campbell confirmed Swift (shoulder) won't play Sunday against the Vikings, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

Campbell doesn't expect the Lions to shut Swift down for the season, saying the running back "may be a week away" from returning. Reports from earlier in the week suggested Swift could miss multiple games with an AC joint injury, but the Lions are hoping it'll be just be a two-week absence in a worst-case scenario. Jamaal Williams is expected to draw the Week 13 start and handle most of the backfield snaps and touches, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike working in reserve. After that, the Lions head to Denver in Week 14 and host the Cardinals in Week 15.

Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney

WR | NYG

Unlikely to play

Toney (quad/oblique) isn't practicing Friday, making him unlikely to play Sunday against the Dolphins, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

It's another rough week for the banged-up Giants offense, with QB Daniel Jones (neck) set to miss at least one game and quite possibly more. Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com suggests Sterling Shepard (quad) is also unlikely to play, leaving backup QB Mike Glennon with Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton, Collin Johnson and maybe John Ross (illness) as his top wide receivers.

DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins

WR | ARI

Not seen at practice

Hopkins (hamstring) wasn't present for the media-access portion of Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

It's a concerning development after Hopkins was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday, coming out of a Week 12 bye. The Cardinals play in Chicago this Sunday, kicking off at 1:00 ET. QB Kyler Murray (ankle) was present for the start of Friday's practice.

J.D. McKissic

J.D. McKissic

RB | WAS

Still not practicing

McKissic (concussion) wasn't seen on the field during the open portion of Friday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

McKissic appears headed toward his third straight missed practice after suffering the concussion in Monday's win over the Seahawks. The 28-year-old will need to fully clear the five-step concussion protocol before being able to participate in full contact work, which is unlikely to happen ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Raiders. If McKissic is sidelined this week, Wendell Smallwood could be promoted from the practice squad to offer another pass-catching option out of the backfield, though lead back Antonio Gibson is also likely to absorb some of McKissic's passing-down responsibilities.

Mike Glennon

Mike Glennon

QB | NYG

Confirmed for Week 13 start

Glennon is slated to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins after New York head coach Joe Judge ruled Daniel Jones (neck) out for the contest, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Though Jones has been practicing on a limited basis this week, Judge noted that the third-year signal-caller won't be able to start Sunday since team doctors haven't cleared him to take contact while he contends with a neck strain. Glennon, who has also been taking reps with the first-team offense this week, will thus make his first start of the season with the Giants, after his lone previous action came in relief of a concussed Jones in Week 5 against the Cowboys. Over his most recent run as an NFL starter with the Jaguars in 2020, Glennon completed 62 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt and a 7:5 TD:INT over a five-game stretch. Given his unremarkable career numbers, lack of rushing contributions and matchup with a Miami pass defense that's turned a corner in recent weeks, Glennon likely won't be worthy of consideration outside of leagues that start two quarterbacks or have a superflex spot.

Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones

QB | NYG

Won't play Sunday

Giants head coach Joe Judge said Jones (neck) hasn't been cleared for contact work and has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Miami, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Jones was able to practice as a limited participant this week after picking up a neck strain in the Week 12 win over the Eagles, but he hasn't made enough progress to have a chance to suit up Sunday. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Jones' injury isn't believed to be of the season-ending variety, though it's unclear when the signal-caller will be cleared for contact work. Mike Glennon is set to start at quarterback for New York on Sunday, while Jake Fromm, who was signed off Buffalo's practice squad Tuesday, will handle backup duties.

D'Andre Swift

D'Andre Swift

RB | DET

Not expected to play Sunday

Coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Swift (shoulder) is "maybe a week away" from retaking the field.

It was reported earlier this week that Swift could miss multiple games with an AC join sprain in his shoulder, so it's not a major surprise the team isn't expecting him to play Sunday against the Vikings. The 22-year-old should be officially ruled out later Friday when the Lions release their final Week 13 injury report. Jamaal Williams is poised to step into the lead role in Detroit's backfield in the meantime, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike available as the depth options.

Malcolm Brown

Malcolm Brown

RB | MIA

Still not ready to practice

Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Brown (quadriceps) will not be ready to resume practicing Week 13, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins will go on bye after Sunday's game against the Giants, so Brown's next opportunity to play will come Week 15. With Phillip Lindsay (ankle) having joined Miami's running back room, the team doesn't have any real incentive to rush Brown back on the field until he's fully healthy.

Corey Davis

Corey Davis

WR | NYJ

Returning to practice Friday

Coach Robert Saleh said Davis (groin) will practice Friday.

Davis was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday, and Saleh also said the team is more optimistic regarding the wideout's outlook than last week, when he sat out versus the Texans. The 26-year-old's performance at Friday's session should dictate his status heading into the weekend.

Noah Brown

Noah Brown

WR | DAL

Two catches Thursday

Brown caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Thursday's 27-17 win over the Saints.

The Cowboys nearly had their full complement of wideouts available again, but with Cedrick Wilson (ankle) sidelined and Amari Cooper having a limited workload in his return from the COVID-19 list, there were still opportunities for Brown and other depth receivers to see some looks. Brown has set career highs this season with 16 catches on 25 targets for 184 yards, but he's still looking for his first NFL touchdown.

Dalton Schultz

Dalton Schultz

TE | DAL

Five grabs against Saints

Schultz caught all five of his targets for 43 yards in Thursday's 27-17 win over the Saints.

The tight end continues to deliver solid, if unspectacular, numbers. Schultz hasn't reached 60 receiving yards since Week 6, but he's seen at least five targets in five of the last six games and posted a 21-221-1 line over that stretch on the steady volume. He'll look to make an impact in Week 14 against Washington.

Availability uncertain for Sunday

Beckham's (hip) status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars is up in the air after he sat out Thursday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Beckham was limited at Wednesday's practice before sitting out Thursday due to a posterior hip pointer in his lower back, and the absence is apparently more than a precautionary measure. It's not believed to be a major injury for the 29-year-old, but his outlook for this weekend remains in question.

Tony Pollard

Tony Pollard

RB | DAL

Rips off long TD run

Pollard rushed seven times for 71 yards and a touchdown and brought in two of four targets for three yards in the Cowboys' 27-17 win over the Saints on Thursday night.

Pollard's 58-yard rushing touchdown late in the third quarter gave the Cowboys some valuable breathing room after the Saints had closed to within 13-10 earlier in the period. The third-year back also crossed the goal line on a 100-yard kickoff return on Thanksgiving against the Raiders, making Thursday's score his third touchdown overall this season. Pollard does remain firmly behind Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield pecking order, but with big-play upside and multiple receptions in four consecutive contests, he retains a solid amount of fantasy utility heading into a Week 14 road trip to Washington a week from Sunday.

Gets into end zone Thursday

Humphrey secured both targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 27-17 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night.

Humphrey checked in a distant second to Deonte Harris in receiving yards, but he was able to get into the end zone via a 24-yard scoring grab early in the second quarter. The 23-year-old now has a pair of touchdown catches in the last three games, while his yardage totals over the last pair of contests -- he also posted 47 yards against the Bills on Thanksgiving night -- are the two highest of his career. Humphrey's next opportunity to keep building on his numbers comes in a Week 14 road matchup against the Jets a week from Sunday.
