Injury Brandin Cooks out with a calf injury
Injured in practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 2 2022, 4:18 pm

Houston Texans
#Texans will lean on Nico Collins, Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore with Brandin Cooks out with a calf injury. Desmond King will line up again as an outside corner with Derek Stingley Jr. out for third game in a row with Tavierre Thomas operating as primary nickel. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooks was added to the injury report yesterday and has now been ruled out. Nico Collins gets a slight bump in value but the Texans passing game has been so bad, he's only a Flex consideration.

Injury Justin Fields off the injury report, will start
Trevor Siemian will undergo season-ending surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 2 2022, 2:49 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears’ QB Justin Fields was a full participant in practice today for a second straight day and has no injury designation going into Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. Bears believe he’s good to go. Bears’ HC Matt Eberflus told reporters that QB Trevor Siemian will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the oblique injury he suffered during pregame warmups last Sunday. Siemian played the game vs. the Jets with the injury that now will require surgery. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fields will get the start against Green Bay. How much the shoulder bothers him during the game remains to be seen. Fields had been on a fantasy tear prior to his injury, rushing for at least 80 yards in his last three games. He has six rushing TDs in his last five games.

John Wolford will start at QB for the Rams
Bryce Perkins will be available as well
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 2 2022, 2:15 pm

Los Angeles Rams
John Wolford will start Sunday, per Sean McVay, and Bryce Perkins will be available as well. Sounds like Rams could use both. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A switch at quarterback isn't going to help the Rams much as they begin playing out the string of a lost season. Matthew Stafford has been ruled out. This team is off limits unless you want to take a stab at running back Kyren Williams.

Injury David Njoku ruled Out for Week 13
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 2 2022, 12:38 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns have ruled out tight end David Njoku due to a knee injury for Sunday's game against the Texans (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Njoku picked up a knee injury in last week's game on top of a sprained ankle that he dealt with earlier in the season. In his absence, Harrison Bryant will slide back into the starter's role at tight end and be a low-upside dart throw at the position.

Injury Michael Carter listed as Doubtful
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 2 2022, 10:41 am

New York Jets
RB Michael Carter and RT Cedric Ogbuehi are listed as DOUBTFUL for Sunday, per Saleh. S Ashtyn Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carter left last week's game with an ankle injury and the Doubtful tag means he'll likely be on the Inactive list on Sunday. That means we'll see more of Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson and perhaps James Robinson who was a healthy inactive last week. Knight is the probably the most intriguing of the bunch from a fantasy perspective while Johnson could operate more on third downs.

Injury Christian McCaffrey back at practice Thursday
Missed practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 1 2022, 6:04 pm

San Francisco
Christian McCaffrey said he dodged a bullet with his knee issue, said he’ll play in full Sunday. “I feel great,” he said. (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McCaffrey missed practice Wednesday with a knee injury but apparently is planning on playing this week against the Dolphins. Elijah Mitchell has been put on the shelf for at least the next six weeks, meaning McCaffrey should see around 20 touches in this game. We could see more of Deebo Samuel in the backfield this week as well.

Injury Joe Mixon, Ja'Marr Chase limited on Thursday
Both trending towards playing Week 13
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 1 2022, 4:01 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) and RB Joe Mixon (concussion) both remained limited at practice today. (Ben Baby on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mixon still needs to clear the concussion protocol, which includes him practicing throughout the week without issues. Assuming that happens, he should be good to go for the matchup against the Chiefs. Chase is expected to play as well. We should get a read this weekend on any limitations that may be placed on Chase.

Injury Jaylen Warren expected to play in Week 13
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 30 2022, 2:09 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers’ RB Jaylen Warren told reporters that doctors have cleared him to return from his hamstring injury and he expects to be able to play Sunday vs. the Falcons. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is significant considering Najee Harris missed a good portion of last week's game with an abdominal injury. It's unclear at this time if Harris will be available against the Falcons. Warren would be a solid RB2 if Najee misses this week.

Injury David Njoku dealing with new knee injury
Won't practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 30 2022, 1:38 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said TE David Njoku's knee injury is different than the one he missed practice time with last week. Will work through it this week, not ruling him out for Sunday vs. #Texans. (Scott Petrak on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Njoku played 81% of the snaps last week and would be great tight end play this week should he be active. We'll monitor practice reports and have a better idea of his status late Friday afternoon.

Josh Jacobs unlikely to practice all week
Played through calf strain and logged 39 touches in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2022, 7:00 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is not expected to practice much, if at all this week because of his calf strain, per sources. He’ll get around-the-clock treatment in hopes of playing Sunday against the Chargers. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs initially suffered the injury during practice late last week and was listed as questionable, but that didn't keep Josh McDaniels from loading him up with 33 carries or Derek Carr from throwing it to him six more times in Week 12. The fact that Las Vegas is already certain it may hold him out of practice all week suggests he should be considered questionable at best for Week 13 against a soft Chargers' run defense. Jacobs has overall RB1 upside for that matchup if he can play, while rookie Zamir White would be in the RB1 conversation if Jacobs sits.

Injury Damien Harris unlikely to play in Week 13
Suffered thigh injury on Thanksgiving night
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2022, 12:40 am

New England Patriots
Patriots RB Damien Harris, who is dealing with a thigh injury, is not expected to play this Thursday, source said. He's considered week-to-week going forward, an indication he'll miss some time. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: In the two games Harris has already missed this season due to injury, Stevenson handled 23 touches in Week 6 and 18 in Week 9. If Harris is truly week-to-week, then Rhamondre Stevenson would be in line to assume another heavy workload and should be treated as a top-five option at his position until Harris returns. That includes Week 13 against the Bills.

Injury Aaron Rodgers optimistic about playing Week 13
QB injured his ribs in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Nov 29 2022, 12:00 am

Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers on the @PatMcAfeeShow show: “I got good news with the scans yesterday, so I plan on playing this week. (ESPN - Rob Demovsky)

FFToday's Take: Rodgers is obviously at high risk for an in-game setback given the fact one hit to his upper body could cause him a great deal of pain. With that said, the Bears have been so bad defensively lately that the four-time MVP may be willing to take the risk - even with the Packers eyeing a bye in Week 14. For now, expect Rodgers to get the nod. Jordan Love will start if Green Bay's training staff edges on the side of caution.

Melvin Gordon likely to sign with Kansas City
Released by Denver last week
By: Doug Orth | Nov 28 2022, 5:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Two-time Pro Bowl RB Melvin Gordon is expected to sign with the #Chiefs practice squad, per source. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: In addition to being one team short of having the distinction of playing for all four AFC West rivals, Gordon joins a contending team that would prefer to have another rugged runner besides Isiah Pacheco and a more dynamic option than Jerick McKinnon. Gordon will start out on the practice squad but likely did not join the Chiefs with the idea he would be third on the depth chart. There is a decent chance Gordon emerges as a flex option before the fantasy season ends.

Injury Ja'Marr Chase expected to play in Week 13
Hip injury has sidelined top WR since Week 7
By: Doug Orth | Nov 28 2022, 5:25 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals have won three in a row and reinforcements are on the way. Source says the plan is for star WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) to return this week. He was close last week and is expected to go this week vs. the Chiefs. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Chase was reportedly close to being activated against the Titans in Week 12. The fact he was limited in practice all of last week suggests he could be a full participant at some point this week, but fantasy managers still need to keep their expectations in check until he proves he can play a full game. Consider him a high-risk WR2 for now with his usual WR1 upside.

Injury Darnell Mooney likely out the rest of the season
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2022, 8:40 pm

Chicgao Bears
#Bears WR Darnell Mooney will get more tests Monday, but the fear is he suffered a season-ending ankle injury in today’s loss to the #Jets, per source. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Mooney is going to need surgery to repair ligaments in his ankle, but we should know more tomorrow. The Bears receiver never became a big fantasy threat as the offense leaned run-heavy with the lowest pass rate in the league.

Injury Allen Robinson needs foot surgery, out for the year
Injury occurred on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2022, 7:42 pm

Los Angeles Rams
Rams’ HC Sean McVay told reporters that WR Allen Robinson needs foot surgery and will miss the rest of the season. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The injury reportedly occurred on Friday and is a stress fracture. The Rams are cobbling together a receiver corps that consisted of Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, Tutu Atwell and Brandon Powell in Week 12 against the Chiefs. With Sean McVay limiting the pass attempts of quarterback Bryce Perkins, this will be a pass offense to stay away from down the stretch.

Injury James Robinson inactive for the Jets
Rookie RB Zonovan Knight is active
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2022, 11:31 am

New York Jets
RB James Robinson is INACTIVE -- a healthy scratch. Rookie RB Zonovan Knight is active. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Robinson doesn't seem to be fitting in well with the Jets as he is a healthy scratch. Michael Carter shapes up to be a fine RB2 play against the Bears.

Injury Allen Robinson not expected to play
Rams dealing with a rash of injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 27 2022, 7:00 am

Los Angeles Rams
#Rams WR Allen Robinson, dealing with a foot injury, is not likely to play today vs. the #Chiefs, source said. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: As if things couldn't get any worse for the Rams. Already down Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford, expect Van Jefferson and Ben Skowronek to be the top targets for Bryce Perkins against the Chiefs. These two should only be considered if you are desperate at the position.

Injury Greg Dortch not expected to play
Marquise Brown activated off IR
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2022, 11:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ WR Greg Dortch, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a thumb injury, is unlikely to play vs. the Chargers, per sources. Cardinals also have ruled out WR Rondale Moore but they did activate WR Marquise Brown. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cardinals are going to be thin at wide receiver this week which may force Brown into a bigger role than Arizona would like considering he hasn't played since Week 6. Andre Baccellia has also been activated from the practice squad but isn't fantasy viable.

Injury Ja'Marr Chase not expected to play in Week 12
Team hopes to have him back Week 13
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2022, 3:22 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
#Bengals star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase will not play against the Titans tomorrow, a source tells me. The hope is the team will have him back for next week’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. (Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Chase got in some limited practices and QB Joe Burrow expressed optimism earlier in the week suggesting Chase would play. Not the case. Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin have been working as the top three receivers while Chase has been out. Higgins and Boyd are both good options in Week 12,

Injury Bucs rule out Leonard Fournette, activate Giovani Bernard
Rachaad White expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2022, 2:09 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers ruled out RB Leonard Fournette for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns and also activated RB Giovani Bernard from injured reserve. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette was listed as Doubtful on Friday so the downgrade to Out isn't a big surprised. Rachaad White is expected to get the start and has solid RB2 value as a volume play against a weak Browns run defense. Ke'Shawn Vaughn could also be in the mix.

Injury Josh Jacobs added to injury report, Questionable
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 5:40 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Josh Jacobs must have tweaked his calf at practice. Was limited today and is questionable for Sunday. #Raiders (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not great Bob. Jacobs has been a RB1 most of the season acting as the Raiders workhorse in the backfield. He's seen 20-plus carries five times this season and is averaging over 3 targets per game. Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah are next up on the depth chart. Which should get more information on Jacobs' status this weekend.

Injury Raheem Mostert listed as Doubtful
Jeff Wilson expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 4:06 pm

Miami Dolphins
Raheem Mostert (knee) officially listed as doubtful. Load up your Jeff Wilson Jr. shares. Backup QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is questionable while Texans rookie CB Derek Stingley Jr. (hamstring) is OUT. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mostert is battling a knee injury and missed practice early in the week before getting in a limited session on Friday. Assuming he sits, Jeff Wilson will get the start and face a Texans defense that's given up the most fantasy points to running backs. Enough said.

Injury Rondale Moore Out, Greg Dortch gametime decision
Dortch missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 4:02 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury updates: - “looks that way” for Kyler Murray to start - Humphries, Murphy are out - Greg Dortch is a game day decision - Marquise Brown is expected to play Sunday (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rondale Moore is going to miss with his hamstring injury but his replacement, Greg Dortch, who missed practice all week with a thumb injury but is listed as Questionable to play. He would be a fine PPR option if in fact he does play, but it's very curious for him not to even participate in practice this week. We're also waiting on word whether or not Hollywood Brown will be on a snap count.

Injury Justin Fields a gametime decision
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 2:49 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears are listing QB Justin Fields (separated shoulder) as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The tone around Fields seems like he's on the wrong side of questionable this week. Head coach Matt Eberflus said Fields would need to be cleared further by the medical staff in order to play. If Fields sits, then Trevor Siemian would get the start.

Injury Gametime decision for Leonard Fournette, hip injury
Limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 12:59 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bowles says Vita Vea and Leonard Fournette are both making progress, will be game-day decisions Sunday. Only WR Russell Gage and G Luke Goedeke ruled out for Browns game. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette has been limited in practice this week with a hip injury and it sounds like the Bucs will take it up to gametime with him. If Giovani Bernard (ankle) gets activated off the IR this weekend, that may give us a clue as to Fournette's status on Sunday. If Fournette sits, then Rachaad White will be a priority play against a weak Bengals rush defense.

Injury Joe Mixon Out, Ja'Marr Chase listed as Questionable
Samaje Perine expected to start at RB
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2022, 12:46 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
#Bengals coach Zac Taylor told reporters RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out for Sunday vs. the #Titans, while WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) will be a game-time decision. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Mixon out, expect Samaje Perine to start and get the bulk of the running back duties against the Titans. Tennessee represents a negative matchup for running backs, allowing the 4th fewest fantasy points to the position making Perine more of a volume-based RB2. Chase seems to be on the right side of questionable with his hip injury. Whether or not he will be on a snap count is unclear.

Injury Joe Mixon misses practice Thursday, Chase limited
Bengals stars in a race to get cleared for Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2022, 3:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) did not practice for the second straight day, according to the injury report. Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) was limited for the second straight day. (Ben Baby on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's been optimism surrounding Chase since the beginning of the week but we'll have a better idea of his true status after practice Friday. Same with Mixon who is dealing with a concussion, although it's seems ominous that he is not practicing. If Mixon misses, then Samaje Perine will hold RB2 value against the Titans.

Kyle Allen expected to start at QB for the Texans
Davis Mills to the bench
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2022, 12:54 pm

Houston Texans
Texans are planning to start quarterback Kyle Allen on Sunday, according to a league source, replacing Davis Mills. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Houston has 1 game in the win column this season and with their offense ranked last in total yards, it's no surprise that a change has been made. The Texans will likely be in a negative game script this week against the Dolphins but Allen hasn't shown the skills to inspire even QB2 confidence.

Jets make QB change, Mike White will start Week 11
Zach Wilson to the bench
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2022, 11:40 am

New York Jets
#Jets coach Robert Saleh announces that Mike White will start on Sunday. Zach Wilson officially benched. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Robert Saleh did say that Wilson's career in New York isn't over. The quarterback went 9 of 22 for 77 yards with no touchdowns in the Jets 10-3 loss to the Patriots last week. White has some modest QB2 appeal against a bad Bears defense. He did post a 405-3-2 game last season against the Bengals but hasn't shown any rushing ability.

Injury Kyler Murray making good progress
Hamstring injury has sidelined QB over last two games
By: Doug Orth | Nov 22 2022, 11:50 pm

Arizona Cardinals
AZCardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said QB Kyler Murray has progressed "quite a bit." The head coach added he knows K1 is a competitor and wanted to be out there last night. Still, it's all about the QB being "full throttle" before he returns to action. (Tyler Drake on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds as though at this point the only thing holding Kingsbury back might be the team's Week 13 bye. Colt McCoy has done an acceptable job filling in for Murray, but it becomes obvious whenever Murray misses a few games how much Arizona misses his ability to create something out of nothing. When Murray returns to action - be it Week 12 or Week 14 - he should go right back to being considered a near must-start.

Injury Marquise Brown not far away
HC to decide on playing speedster early in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Nov 22 2022, 11:40 pm

Arizona Cardinals
AZCardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury put WR Marquise Brown in the same boat as QB Kyler Murray: "He's a competitor. He wants to be out there, so if he can go, we'll know early this week, he'll be out there." (Tyler Drake on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Brown has been sidelined since Week 6 with a foot injury. With Arizona bye coming in Week 13, it may make sense to give him the extra time to heal just to be on the safe side. Whenever he returns, Brown should make for a solid WR2 option in fantasy with WR1 upside - so long as Murray is in the lineup.

Darrell Henderson let go
RB limited to two touches in Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Nov 22 2022, 11:30 pm

Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have (waived) RB Darrell Henderson. (The Athletic - Jourdan Rodrigue)

FFToday's Take: Anderson had his struggles staying healthy with the Rams, but this is a surprising move for a team that obviously thought enough of him to give him seven starts in 2022. It appears the Rams will move forward with Cam Akers on early downs and Kyren Williams on most passing downs. Unfortunately, Henderson's departure does little to help the fantasy value of Akers or Williams on what has become a bad offense.

Panthers make QB change, Sam Darnold will start
Baker Mayfield back to the bench
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 22 2022, 4:02 pm

Carolina Panthers
Panthers announce they are making another QB change: Sam Darnold replaces Baker Mayfield in starting lineup. PJ Walker is still recovering from high-ankle sprain and Mayfield threw 2 INTs in 13-3 loss to Ravens. So interim HC Steve Wilks now going with Darnold. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This will be the third starting quarterback for the Panthers this season as they've largely struggled on offense especially with Mayfield at the helm. Baker went 21-33 for 196 yards and 2 INTs last week against the Ravens. This will be Darnold's first start of the season, facing off against a Broncos defense that's given up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Injury Mike Williams suffers another ankle injury
Aggravation of earlier high-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Nov 22 2022, 1:30 am

Los Angeles Chargers
WR Mike Williams had a "re-aggravation" of his high ankle sprain last night, per Brandon Staley. Staley said team will "find out a lot more in the next couple days" but it is not considered "a significant re-injury." (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: Williams lasted all of six snaps in Week 11 after sitting out three weeks (missing two games) with his Week 7 high-ankle sprain. He won't have the benefit of a bye week this time around, so there is a good chance Williams does not return until the fantasy playoffs if the Chargers learn their lesson and are more cautious with him this time. Josh Palmer had a huge game in his stead and should remain a viable WR3 option in most 12-team leagues.

Justin Fields' status in limbo
Suffered left shoulder injury in Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Nov 21 2022, 5:30 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears coach Matt Eberflus really doing the "competitive advantage" floor routine here on Justin Fields' injury status. He calls Fields "day to day" but also says he can't rule out that Fields has suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. So, yeah. (Chicago Tribune - Dan Wiederer)

FFToday's Take: As Wiederer states, the coach is really doing his best to gain a "competitive advantage" with his comments. As usual, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Fields may be in doubt for Week 12 against the Jets and could sit against the Packers in Week 13 if the team's doctors feel as though it would be best if Fields rests through the team's Week 14 bye. However, it is all speculation at this point. Trevor Siemian is the backup and not worth starting outside of maybe some deep two-QB or superflex leagues if Fields misses time.

Injury Melvin Gordon dumped by Denver
Veteran back waived Monday
By: Doug Orth | Nov 21 2022, 5:25 pm

Denver Broncos
Sources: The #Broncos make a move following Sunday’s loss, as Denver has waived veteran RB Melvin Gordon. A respected player who spent 3 years with the Broncos, Gordon’s fumbles proved too much. A fresh start for all parties. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Gordon's fumbling issues ultimately led to his demise in Denver. The Broncos' offense had bigger issues than Gordon's ball security problems, but he should be able to land on his feet relatively quickly as a potential 1B option for a contending team. As for Denver, it is left with Latavius Murray, Marlon Mack and practice-squader Devine Ozigbo until Mike Boone (ankle) possibly returns from IR in Week 13. Murray has low-end RB2 upside in Week 12 and possibly beyond.

Injury MCL injury for Kyle Pitts, likely to miss time
Nothing confirmed yet
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2022, 12:30 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Sources: #Falcons standout TE Kyle Pitts is believed to have suffered a torn MCL that would require surgery. This is following his MRI today. A brutal blow to one of the game’s best young players. He’ll have a second opinion before deciding what's next. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: According to head coach Arthur Smith, a torn MCL has not been confirmed at this time but Pitts is expected to miss some game action. Pitts has been a fantasy bust this season thanks in large part to the Falcons low-volume passing game. Atlanta has the second-lowest pass percentage in the league behind Chicago. MyCole Pruitt could see increased snaps with Pitts out.

Injury Torn ACL for Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson
Out for the year
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2022, 9:44 am

New York Giants
WR Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) has a torn ACL, per Brian Daboll. His season is over. #giants (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The rookie had his best fantasy day this season in Week 11 with a 9-100-0 line on 13 targets. Unfortunately his season is now over. The Giants have been extremely thin at wide receiver this season and are now relying on Darius Slayton as their top option on the outside. Isaiah Hodgins (59%) and Kenny Golladay (43%) had the next highest snap shares. Richie James is likely to take over the slot role.

Injury Colt McCoy expected to start at QB for Arizona
Kyler Murray out with hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2022, 8:30 am

Arizona Cardinals
For the second straight week, Colt McCoy appears set to start for the #AZCardinals, sources say. With QB Kyler Murray still dealing with a hamstring injury and limited all week, McCoy is good to go. The veteran hopes to replicate last week when he was 26 of 36 for 238 with a TD. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Murray will sit another week as he deals with a hamstring injury. Arizona faces the Chargers in Week 12 and then has a bye in Week 13. The 49ers aren't the best matchup for McCoy, allowing the 7th fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks.
