Injury Alvin Kamara limited Wednesday, listed as Questionable
Taysom Hill expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 1 2021, 5:00 pm

New Orleans
Saints RB Alvin Kamara and OTs Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk listed as questionable after Kamara was limited Wednesday and others didn't practice QB Taysom Hill full participant, which lines him up to start Thursday DEs Marcus Davenport, Tanoh Kpassagnon, LB Kaden Elliss out (Mike Triplett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Mark Ingram and Tony Jones ready go and Kamara not fully healthy, it would make sense for the Saints to give him another 10 days of rest but we'll have to wait until tomorrow before we know his true game status. Even if Kamara does play, he could be limited.
Seahawks sign veteran RB Adrian Peterson
Seattle desperate for running back help
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 1 2021, 4:07 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks are signing RB Adrian Peterson to their practice squad, per HC Pete Carroll. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Here we go again. Peterson is expected to be called up to the team as soon as he's eligible. Seattle has struggled on offense and especially running the ball since Chris Carson went down with a neck injury. Alex Collins (groin), Peterson and DeeJay Dallas will form a three-headed RBBC to avoid.
Injury Amari Cooper expected to play Thursday night
Sat out Weeks 11 & 12
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 1 2021, 12:34 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Source: #Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is expected to travel with the team to New Orleans today and play against the #Saints tomorrow night. Cooper, who is unvaccinated, tested positive for Covid and has missed last two games, both Cowboys losses. (Ed Werder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooper has missed the last two games after being placed on the Covid-19 list. The Saints have given up the 5th most fantasy points to wide receivers this season including four 100-yard receiving games giving Cooper some WR2 value in Week 13.
Injury Daniel Jones considered week-to-week, neck strain
Mike Glennon expected to start Week 13
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 30 2021, 6:41 pm

New York Giants
#Giants QB Daniel Jones is considered week-to-week because of his neck strain and backup Mike Glennon is now expected to start Sunday against Miami, sources tell me and @RapSheet. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants offense has sputtered most of the season and Daniel Jones hasn't thrown for more than 242 yards since Week 4. The Dolphins have given up the most passing yards in the league but it will be difficult to trust Glennon in a spot start on the road.
Amari Cooper (COVID) now non-committal for Week 13
Veteran WR still symptomatic, up in the air for matchup with Saints
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 30 2021, 11:45 am

Dallas Cowboys
Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) on Twitter: "Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but "still not feeling the best," coach Mike McCarthy said. Still has a cough. "To be determined" whether he'll practice today. "My gut would be if he doesn't practice tomorrow, I don't see him going to the game." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: That was a quick change of direction. Earlier in the morning, Jerry Jones indicated Cooper should play, but the news that he's still symptomatic puts him in doubt of playing. Michael Gallup would get a bump, and Dak Prescott would take a hit if Cooper can't play.
Injury Jerry Jones expects Amari Cooper to play Thursday
Cowboys WR missed Week 12 due to Covid protocols
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 30 2021, 9:51 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19): “We’re fully expecting him to be ready by game time” Thursday at Saints, he said on @1053thefan. Cooper missed two games. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach, err... team owner Jerry Jones seems to think Cooper will be ready to face the Saints in Week 12. Cooper didn't practice with the team on Monday. He'll be a WR2 against the Saints if he's able to get cleared and his presence will put a cap on the ceiling of Michael Gallup.
Injury D'Andre Swift unlikely to go in Week 13
RB suffered shoulder strain on Thanksgiving
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2021, 8:25 pm

Detroit Lions
Lions coach Dan Campbell says RB D’Andre Swift is still pretty sore. “It’s hard to say that you’d see him playing,” he said. (ESPN - Eric Woodyard)

FFToday's Take: Although the extra three days he gets from playing on Thanksgiving will obviously help his chances of not missing a game, it seems like a longshot Swift will play against the Vikings in Week 13. And there is always the possibility that the winless Lions decided enough is enough and look toward the future as the season comes to a close. Jamaal Williams should be a more than serviceable RB2 option if Swift can't go in Week 13. Jermar Jefferson (ankle) would likely serve as the change-of-pace if such a scenario.
Injury Pat Freiermuth could miss Week 13
Possible concussion
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2021, 8:15 pm

Pat Freiermuth is being evaluated for a concussion. (ESPN - Brooke Pryor)

FFToday's Take: Freiermuth caught a touchdown near the end of the Steelers' Week 12 loss to the Bengals but left the game before it was over. While some players can clear it in less than a week, it is always a big ask for someone to do so. With Eric Ebron already on IR, Zach Gentry would be a desperation TE2 play at best in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens if the rookie sits.
Injury Deebo Samuel likely to miss next game or two
Groin strain
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2021, 8:10 pm

San Francisco
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan with following injury update: WR Deebo Samuel (groin) -- It's a strain. Expected to miss 1-2 weeks. (ESPN - Nick Wagoner)

FFToday's Take: This is pretty much the best-case scenario for Samuel, who has mostly been able to avoid or play through the injuries that hampered him so often in his first two seasons. Since Samuel was essentially working as the change-of-pace back for Elijah Mitchell in recent weeks, it is now fair to wonder if his touches will be given to Kyle Juszczyk, JaMycal Hasty (if he can shake his nagging ankle injury) or Jeff Wilson. Look for Juszczyk to see the most work among the non-Mitchell backs in Week 13 versus the Seahawks.
Injury Darrell Henderson could miss some time
Suffered quad strain in Week 12 loss to Packers
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2021, 8:00 pm

Los Angeles Rams
RB Darrell Henderson nursing a quad strain that will be monitored through week, McVay said. (LA Times - Gary Klein)

FFToday's Take: Henderson will almost certainly be limited at best in practice this week. Considering the Rams have a winnable game against the Jaguars on deck - even given how poorly they have played in recent weeks - it would make sense for the Rams to give the bulk of backfield work to Sony Michel and let Henderson heal.
Injury Darren Waller week-to-week with knee injury
Strained IT band
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2021, 4:30 pm

Oakland Raiders
#Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia says TE Darren Waller and DE Carl Nassib are both week-to-week with knee injuries. LB Nick Kwiatkoski (ankle) could be back this week. CB Keisean Nixon (ankle) is less certain. CB Trayvon Mullen (foot) should be designated for return from IR. (Tashan Reed on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Waller's injury is reportedly a strained IT band which we don't typically hear about a lot in NFL circles. At a position where fantasy owners are often searching, Foster Moreau against the Football Team in Week 13 could be your answer.
Taysom Hill taking first team practice reps
Could start Thursday against the Cowboys
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 29 2021, 2:30 pm

New Orleans
Sources: The #Saints appear poised to make a QB change. Taysom Hill is taking first-team reps this week in practice in preparation to face the #Cowboys. Trevor Siemian is taking No. 2 reps. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Saints have been getting underwhelming quarterback play all seasons so what do they have to lose? In all fairness, without Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara their isn't much to throw to in New Orleans for Trevor Siemian. Hill's rushing upside may be something for fantasy owners to chase but his passing yardage will be limited.
Injury Christian McCaffrey out for the season
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 29 2021, 1:46 pm

Carolina Panthers
The #Panthers have placed RB Christian McCaffrey on Injured Reserve. Out for the season. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sigh. McCaffrey is another top running back that isn't going to make it through the season. According to reports, his ankle injury was significant enough not to allow a return this year but he should be ready to go for 2022. We've seen Chuba Hubbard in the lead role already this season and know what to expect. We should also Ameer Abdullah get mixed in as well. Carolina has a bye in Week 13.
Injury MCL sprain for Dan Arnold, likely out 4-6 weeks
James O'Shaughnessy next man up
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 29 2021, 10:38 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
#Jaguars TE Dan Arnold suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain, sources say, knocking him out 4-6 weeks. Based on the calendar, the injury could be season-ending. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Arnold has been hovering around TE2 territory ever since his trade to Jacksonville back in Week 3. James O'Shaughnessy will pick up the receiving slack at the tight end position for Jacksonville given the ineptitude of the offense as a whole, it's difficult to get excited about his fantasy prospects.
Injury Dalvin Cook will have MRI Monday on injured shoulder
Injured in 3rd quarter
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 28 2021, 8:03 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings’ RB Dalvin Cook scheduled Monday to undergo an MRI on his shoulder injury. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cook finished Week 12 with a 10-39-0 rushing line and a 6-64-0 receiving line, leaving in the 3rd quarter with a shoulder injury. If he were to miss time, Alexander Mattison would be an RB1 option against the Lions in Week 13.
Injury Aaron Jones a gametime decision
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 28 2021, 8:13 am

Green Bay Packers
Packers were pleased with Aaron Jones' practice week coming off the sprained MCL, giving him a chance to play vs. Rams, I'm told. True game-time decision. But as @AdamSchefter said, the upcoming bye week looms large. Would give him extra two weeks of game rest. (Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is an important playoff seeding game in the NFC with Packers and Rams squaring off in the late afternoon. With the Packers having a bye in Week 13 it wouldn't be a shock to see Jones on the Inactive list today. Fantasy owners of both Jones and AJ Dillon will have to be nimble with their lineups today.
Injury Cordarrelle Patterson a gametime decision for Week 12
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 28 2021, 7:10 am

Atlanta Falcons
#Falcons star RB Cordarrelle Patterson, who missed last week with an ankle injury, is feeling much better this week. But sources say Atlanta will take it up to game time, making sure they are smart about it. A true game-time decision. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Patterson is the best playmaker in the Atlanta offense. Having him back would be key for the offense as a whole against the Jaguars. ATL and JAX play at 1 pm Eastern meaning we'll know his official status at roughly 11:30 am.
Injury Elijah Mitchell expected to play in Week 12
Finger and rib injuriues
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 28 2021, 7:00 am

San Francisco
49ers’ RB Elijah Mitchell, listed as questionable for Sunday due to rib and finger injuries, is expected to play vs. the Vikings, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mitchell will shift Jeff Wilson into a backup role but it's unclear how the workload will be shared between the two 49ers' running backs. Mitchell is more of a Flex option than a RB2 given the uncertainty.
Injury Corey Davis downgraded to Doubtful
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2021, 2:12 pm

New York Jets
Jets injury update: WR Corey Davis (groin) has been downgraded to DOUBTFUL. He was questionable yesterday, when Saleh expressed optimism about Davis’ chances. Also: Sr offensive assistant Matt Cavanaugh won’t coach tomorrow due to COVID-19 protocols. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rookie QB Zach Wilson will have Jamison Crowder and Elijah Moore as his main options on the outside. Keelan Cole and Braxton Berrios will also be on the field. Crowder and Moore are both hold your nose flex options in Week 12.
Injury Logan Thomas, Curtis Samuel expected to play Monday night
Thomas expected to activated off IR
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2021, 1:10 pm

Washington Redskins
The Washington Football Team, on a two-game winning streak, should have additional offensive help available Monday night vs. Seattle as tight end Logan Thomas and receiver Curtis Samuel are expected to play, barring a last minute-change in their health. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Washington will likely activate Thomas off IR on Sunday. How much either of them play is still up in the air. With Ricky Seals-Jones listed as Doubtful, its likely Thomas and rookie John Bates will both see action at tight end. Samuel is expected to be limited in the game and is off the fantasy radar given his multiple-month battle with a groin injury.
Injury 49ers rule out JaMycal Hasty, Elijah Mitchell Questionable
Finger injury for Mitchell
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2021, 5:00 pm

San Francisco
#49ers injury report for Week 12 vs. Vikings: OUT-RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) Doubtful-DL Maurice Hurst (calf) Questionable-RB Elijah Mitchell (rib, finger) (Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mitchell was able to practice on Friday which is key for him being active on Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan did say that the team "will be able to protect Mitchell's broken finger". He'll likely be a gametime decision but it sounds like he's trending towards playing. Jeff Wilson will fill the lead back role if Mitchell sits.
Injury Titans rules out A.J. Brown, Jeremy McNichols
Both will miss Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2021, 3:07 pm

Tennessee Titans
Players ruled OUT for @Titans on Sunday vs @Patriots: WR A.J. Brown LB David Long LB Rashaan Evans OL Nate Davis RB Jeremy McNichols DL Teair Tart (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Titans are void of skill position players heading into their Week 12 matchup against the Patriots. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Dez Fitzpatrick and Chester Rogers will be the top three wideouts for Ryan Tannehill. Start the Patriots-D.
Injury Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard miss practice Friday
Quad injury for both
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2021, 12:51 pm

New York Giants
WRs Kadarius Toney (quad) and Sterling Shepard (quad) not out during open portion of practice. Wouldn’t expect them to play Sunday vs Eagles. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Shepard last played in Week 8 missing time with a quad injury. With Toney missing practice all week with the same injury it's looking like Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton as the top receivers for Daniel Jones against the Eagles. Given the poor offense, it's hard to trust Golladay as anything more than a Flex option.
Injury Darren Waller to have MRI on knee injury
Injured during Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2021, 7:15 am

Oakland Raiders
From @GMFB: The #Cowboys may alter Ezekiel Elliott's touches as he deals with a bone bruise in his knee, while #Raiders TE Darren Waller will have tests today on a knee injury suffered last night. He was not in a lot of pain late, so maybe good news there. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Waller left yesterday's game against the Cowboys in the 2nd quarter with a knee injury and never returned. This seems like a short-term knee sprain but could cost him a week or two. We'll know more in the next day or two after the MRI.
Zack Moss unlikely to suit up for Thanksgiving
Expected to be healthy scratch in favor of Singletary, Breida
By: Doug Orth | Nov 25 2021, 6:30 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills RB Zack Moss is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight against the #Saints, per source. Moss leads the team with 4 rushing TDs despite dwindling snaps in recent weeks. But with the offense scuffling, they’ll shake it up and go with Devin Singletary and Matt Breida. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: This doesn't come as a total surprise after a report from New York Upstate's Ryan Talbot suggested that Thursday's game could be a "Matt Breida game." Buffalo's backfield has been a mess for most of the season, but Breida could be given a chance to take the lead role with another strong effort tonight. Singletary and Breida should remain on fantasy benches in most leagues, but Moss being inactive could mean Josh Allen is an even better bet to score a rushing touchdown.
Injury Mark Ingram not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2021, 12:54 pm

New Orleans
Saints do not expect to have Mark Ingram later vs the Bills @NFLonFOX (Jay Glazer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Saints will be down their top two running backs with Alvin Kamara also missing Thursday night's game against the Bills. Expect Tony Jones, Ty Montgomery and Dwayne Washington to get the running back. Jones can be used as a Flex option if you're desperate.
Injury CeeDee Lamb out for Week 12 with concussion
Couldn't clear protocol in time
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2021, 11:20 am

Dallas Cowboys
#Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out today against the #Raiders, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL. Amari Cooper also out with COVID, leaving Dak Prescott without his top two receivers. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: On the short week, it was going to be tough for Lamb to clear the concussion protocol. In the end, he will miss Week 12 which leaves Dallas thin at receiver. Expect Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Noah Brown to be the top wideouts. TE Dalton Schultz should be a primary option for Dak against the Raiders.
Injury Lions expected to start Jared Goff against the Bears
Oblique injury for Goff
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2021, 8:16 pm

Detroit Lions
The #Lions are planning to start QB Jared Goff (oblique) tomorrow vs the #Bears, sources say, barring any setback overnight. Coach Dan Campbell said this was likely, and it is expected to be the case. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tim Boyle did not show well last week against the Browns going 15-23 for 77 yards and 2 INTs. Goff is dealing with an oblique injury, has a subpar receiving corps and has thrown 8 TDs in nine games this season. He should not be in your lineup.
Injury Alvin Kamara ruled out for Week 12
Mark Ingram limited in practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2021, 3:30 pm

New Orleans
Alvin Kamara has been ruled out for the Bills game. No Alvin Kamara at practice today. Mark Ingram was present but left before the end of the media-viewing period. No Davenport or Ramczyk. (Nick Underhill on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ingram (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday. He will get the bulk of work this week against the Bills if he's able to play. If not, Tony Jones could be in for a significant workload.
Titans cut Adrian Peterson, sign Golden Tate to PS
Titans dealing with multiple injuries at receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2021, 5:15 pm

Tennessee Titans
Running back Adrian Peterson has been waived from the active roster. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Peterson played in three games for the Titans after being signed earlier this month. He rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown in 27 carries in those three contests. Defensive back Chris Jackson and receiver Marcus Johnson have been moved to Injured Reserve. Receiver Golden Tate, running back Rodney Smith, receiver Austin Mack and defensive lineman Kevin Strong have all been signed to the team's practice squad. (Tennessee Titans)

FFToday's Take: With Marcus Johnson (hamstring), A.J. Brown (chest) and Julio Jones (hamstring) all dealing with injuries the Titans are scrambling to field skill position players. To make matters worse, we're probably looking at Dez Fitzpatrick and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as starting receivers in a bad matchup on the road against the Patriots in Week 12.
Injury Zach Wilson to start for Jets in Week 12
Joe Flacco, Mike White placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2021, 4:36 pm

New York Jets
Source: QB Zach Wilson will start Sunday against the Texans, as @Connor_J_Hughes said. So the rookie is back after missing 4 games with a knee injury. QBs Joe Flacco and Mike White have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list2, leaving Wilson and Josh Johnson. (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Jets have done a better job on offense with Wilson (4 TDs, 9 INTs) out and Mike White, Joe Flacco at quarterback. That being said, Wilson gets a decent matchup for his first game back. The Texans have given up the 7th most fantasy points to quarterbacks.
Injury CeeDee Lamb in limbo for Week 12
Suffered concussion in Week 11 loss to KC
By: Doug Orth | Nov 22 2021, 11:30 pm

Dallas Cowboys
CeeDee Lamb left Week 11 in the second quarter with a concussion and did not return, leaving him unlikely to clear the league protocol in time to play on Thanksgiving Day against the Las Vegas Raiders. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Dallas already knows it will be without Amari Cooper after his positive COVID test last week. Lamb did participate in team meetings on Monday, so there is at least some hope he can be cleared in time, although it is rare that a player can clear the league's concussion protocol four days after landing on it. As it stands now, Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz figure to be the team's top available pass-catchers against Las Vegas.
Injury Michael Carter expected to miss 2-3 weeks
High-Ankle sprain
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 22 2021, 3:16 pm

New York Jets
Jets’ rookie RB Michael Carter suffered a low-grade high ankle sprain that is expected to sideline him 2-3 weeks, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carter had been playing well in the Jets offense, especially in the passing game making him a solid RB2 in PPR leagues since Week 5. Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson should handle the bulk of running back duties moving forward. The Jets have @HOU, PHI, NO and @MIA the next four weeks.
Injury Browns hopeful to have Kareem Hunt in Week 12
Should practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 22 2021, 12:33 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski says he should be able to get Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin back in practice this week. He said he’s hopeful they can face the #Ravens (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: D'Ernest Johnson has filled in nicely while Hunt has been sidelined with a calf injury. Hunt hasn't played since Week 6 and his return would push Johnson back to a bench stash. Nick Chubb saw 22 of 30 running back carries for the Browns in Week 11.
Injury Gronk expected to play, barring any setbacks
Listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 22 2021, 12:26 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs’ TE Rob Gronkowski, listed as questionable for tonight due to his back, will play as long as there are no pre-game setbacks, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronk practiced on Thursday and Friday, then missed on Saturday but should be out on the field tonight against the Giants who are middle of the pack (17th) against fantasy tight ends.
Injury Lamar Jackson Inactive with illness
Tyler Huntley to start
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2021, 11:27 am

Baltimore Ravens
Source: #Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, questionable with an illness, is out vs. the #Bears. Tyler Huntley slated to get the start. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With and Lamar and Marquise Brown, the entire Ravens offense is losing steam. Huntley is 5-11 for 39 yards on the season. He's in the low-end QB2 territory with Rashod Bateman, Sammy Watkins and Mark Andrews as his top pass catchers.
Injury James Robinson expected to play
Knee and heel injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2021, 7:00 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars’ RB James Robinson, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against San Francisco due to knee and heel injuries, is expected to play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Robinson was limited in practice this week but appears will be active against San Francisco. Robinson has topped 100 rushing yards just once this season but does have six rushing TDs. He'll be a mid-range RB2 in Week 11.
Injury Ravens downgrade Marquise Brown to Out
Thigh injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 20 2021, 4:18 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Ravens downgraded WR Marquise Brown to out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Brown was limited in practice on Friday this week so this isn't a complete shock but it is a downgrade for Lamar Jackson (illness) and the passing offense. Rashad Bateman and Sammy Watkins should do the heavy lifting at receiver in Week 11 against the Bears. Bateman checks in as a low-end WR2.
Injury Chiefs activate Clyde Edwards-Helaire, expected to start
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 20 2021, 3:17 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
#Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be activated off IR as @JamesPalmerTV reported. A source tells me he will be prepared to start tomorrow’s game against the #Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium. Darrel Williams will also have a role. (Ed Werder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: And with that, the ceiling for Williams comes crashing down. CEH may be limited in his first game back since Week 5. Both can be considered flex plays in Week 11 against the Cowboys.
Injury Ben Roethlisberger expected to play Sunday night
Passed NFL’s required COVID-19 protocols
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 20 2021, 9:45 am

Pittburgh Steelers
#Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will be activated to the team’s 53-man roster after passing the NFL’s required COVID-19 protocols. He will fly separate this afternoon from the team’s charter plane to Los Angeles with the expectation of starting Sunday night vs the #Chargers. (Burt Lauten on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mason Rudolph will head back to the bench after going 30-50 for 242-1-1 with 36 rushing yards against the Lions. Roethlisberger is a middling fantasy QB2 that lacks any upside. He'll fill that role once again on Sunday night against the Chargers.
