Karlos Williams - RB - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams' (shoulder) status for the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans is uncertain at this point. Williams suffered a shoulder injury during the team's Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: Williams had only two carries for 5 yards Sunday, and we'll see how the practice week plays out for fantasy's most-valuable handcuffs.
Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore took some shots against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12 and is pretty beat up, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Perhaps the season is wearing on the 32-year-old RB, who's had at least 19 touches in his last four games. It wouldn't be surprising to see him get a day or two off practice, and his fantasy owners will have to pay close attention to his status at the end of the week.
Case Keenum - QB - St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum is still being evaluated for a concussion but is likely to be on the practice field in some capacity Wednesday, Dec. 2, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Keenum, who threw for 136 yards and a TD in his Week 11 start in Baltimore before sitting out Sunday, will have some extra days to clear the cobwebs, but it really doesn't matter a whole lot fantasy-wise as the St. Louis passing game has been a fantasy wasteland for several seasons now.
Blake Bortles - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles leads the NFL with 50 completions of 20 yards or more, while Jaguars WR Allen Robinson is tops in the NFL with 21 catches of 20 yards or more.
Huddle Up: It's been a sparkling sophomore season for the duo as both Bortles and Robinson rank an impressive sixth at their respective positions in terms of total fantasy points.
Josh McCown - QB - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) left the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth quarter due to an apparent shoulder injury. QB Austin Davis checked in with QB Johnny Manziel dressed as the third-string quarterback.
Huddle Up: McCown, who has missed three starts already this season, tried to come back the series after taking a hard hit, but signaled to come out after attempting his next pass. Before the injury, McCown completed 21-of-38 passes for 212 yards and a TD while rushing for 12 yards on two carries.
Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert underwent tests on his injured neck, but they did not show any structural damage. His status for the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain at this point.
Huddle Up: It was a rugged weekend for tight ends, and Eifert's fantasy owners will have to see how the practice week goes for the league's TD leader.
Taylor Gabriel - WR - Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns have declared WR Taylor Gabriel, WR Andrew Hawkins, CB Don Jones, CB Joe Haden, OG Joel Bitonio, CB Pierre Desir and DL Randy Starks inactive for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Gabriel and Hawkins have a combined 53 receptions between them, meaning there will be extra targets to go around for fellow WRs Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline and Dwayne Bowe and TE Gary Barnidge.
Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) is still the Colts' starting quarterback and will be under center when he's 100 percent healthy, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Luck is 2-5 as a starter while Hasselbeck is 4-0, so there's soom room for debate, but Luck is 14 years younger and did have his best game of the season (252 yards, two TDs passing; 6-34 rushing with no turnovers) in his last outing Week 9 against the Broncos. His return, though, is still at least a week or two away.
Peyton Manning - QB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) will get his walking boot off at some point this week, but there is still not definitive timeline for his return. For now he will continue to rehabilitate the injured foot.
Huddle Up: The biggest obstacle to Manning's return to the lineup right now isn't his health but the play of backup QB Brock Osweiler who is 2-0 as a starter and has the Broncos' offense running more smoothly than it did under Manning.
Chris Johnson - RB - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson suffered a fractured tibia during the team's Week 12 game and will miss an extended period of time. The team is still waiting to receive a definite timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Johnson's feel-good bounce-back season has hit an untimely speed-bump for his fantasy owners as he'll likely miss the fantasy postseason. With Andre Ellington dealing with turf toe, it looks like rookie David Johnson is set to make his first start in Week 13. The third-round pick has shown a definite nose for the end zone so far, scoring seven TDs on only 54 touches.
Andre Ellington - RB - Arizona Cardinals
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in Week 12, but the severity is unknown at this time.
Huddle Up: Ellington and Chris Johnson are both dealing with injuries. The Cardinals official web site thinks David Johnson will be Arizona's starter for Week 13 against the Rams. If that's the case, Johnson will be an RB2 this week.
Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is week-to-week, and his knee injury is considered more of a bruise than a tear, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Gronk should be considered questionable for this week's game against the Eagles. If he can't go, Scott Chandler will get the start and be a TE1 streamer.
Ryan Mathews - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) has not been cleared to play at this point.
Huddle Up: If Mathews isn't cleared by Sunday, DeMarco Murray will continue to see most of the carries against the Patriots this week with Darren Sproles also being mixed in on passing downs.
Ty Montgomery - WR - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has not made much progress in his rehab from an ankle injury, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: With Montgomery still injured and Davante Adams struggling, Jeff Janis could start seeing more snaps on offense. The Packers need to get more consistency out of their receivers going forward.
Rishard Matthews - WR - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs, chest) might not be able to play in Week 13, according to head coach Dan Campbell.
Huddle Up: Kenny Stills and Devante Parker will see increased snaps if Matthews can't play. Miami plays a Ravens team that's struggled to defend receivers this year, so the two are worth a look in deeper leagues.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) was placed on Injured Reserve Monday, Nov. 30. RB Zurlon Tipton was signed to the active roster.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw was just starting to see more touches but now the fading Frank Gore will dominate carries for the rest of the season.
Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
Updating earlier reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is unlikely to miss more than one game, and may not even miss that, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Patriots and fantasy owners can exhale. It looks like Gronk dodged a serious injury and will miss only one game at the most. Scott Chandler will be a strong streaming option against the Eagles this week if Gronkowski can't play.
Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will have an MRI on his right knee. According to sources, the injury is not considered as bad as it looked in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 game against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: About as good of news as the Patriots--and Gronk's fantasy owners--could hope for here. No timetable yet, but if reports are correct Gronk's season is not over. You should, however, look for a replacement for at least this week.
Shaun Draughn - RB - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn carried 15 times for 51 yards in the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he posted five receptions for 35 yards.
Huddle Up: Draughn is about all the Niners have going in their backfield right now, and he's carving out at least a little fantasy value with his heavy workload. He may not be a fantasy savior down the stretch, but at least he won't hurt you.
Blaine Gabbert - QB - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 25 of his 36 pass attempts for 318 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He also ran once for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Let that sink in: Gabbert. 318 yards. You have to admit, while he's not exactly setting off fireworks in San Francisco he's at least held his own.
