Darrelle Revis - CB - New York Jets
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) may not be able to play in Week 12, and the Jets are prepared to play without him, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: IDP alert as its sounds like the cornerback is struggling with the concussion protocol this week after leaving Sunday's game. Meanwhile, it won't help but help the visiting Dolphins and their WRs Sunday if Revis can't go.
Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan acknowledged that WR Sammy Watkins needs more balls thrown his way after the star receiver was targeted only six times by QB Tyrod Taylor in the Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots. "He's too good of a playmaker not to get more looks. So we're definitely going to be looking at that," Ryan said. "We have a great talent there. We got to try to utilize him possibly a little more than we have, obviously." Watkins finished the game with three catches for 39 yards.
Huddle Up: Watkins is averaging only 5.6 targets in seven games this season, with no more than eight in any one contest and certainly is deserving of more looks -- even on the run-heavy Bills. At the same time, it's been a case of too-little, too-late for some fantasy GMs who already have moved on.
Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Gore was injured in Sunday's game in Falcons, and while there's no extra concern over a missed Wednesday, his status the rest of the week will need to be closely monitored.
Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) will return in three to four weeks after undergoing sports hernia surgery Wednesday, Nov. 25, but he could be out longer, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: A short-term injury has been added to Lynch's disappointing season, and hopefully Lynch owners have been able to secure the services of Thomas Rawls, who's averaged 157 total yards and has scored three TDs in the three games Lynch has missed so far this year.
Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is still in the first phase of the concussion protocol and didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as it's the Falcons first practice of the week, and Freeman owners are likely going to have to wait until at least Friday to get a better idea about his Week 12 status.
Matt Forte - RB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) and WR Alshon Jeffery (groin, shoulder) are both listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: After a three-game absence, Forte is expected back will resume his role as the Bears' primary back, knocking productive rookie Jeremy Langford back into a supplemental role. Jeffery's return is a little more iffy, and it'll boil down to a game-time call.
Martellus Bennett - TE - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Bennett was unable to make the turnaround on a short week and will miss his first game of the season, making productive (of late) backup Zach Miller a worthwhile plug-and-play option for those in need of a tight end.
Ryan Mathews - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is officially out for Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Mathews will miss a second straight game, meaning his touches will spread around again between DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner.
Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
All indications are that Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is expected to miss four to five weeks due to his abdominal injury. The hope is that Lynch is able to return to full health by late December.
Huddle Up: Thomas Rawls becomes the Seattle back to have for the fantasy playoff stretch.
Stedman Bailey - WR - St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey (head) was involved in a shooting incident Tuesday, Nov. 24, in Florida, and he suffered a head wound, according to a team source. His injuries are not considered life threatening.
Huddle Up: Thoughts and prayers go out to Bailey and his family.
Case Keenum - QB - St. Louis Rams
Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum (concussion) will start in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals if he is healthy. Keenum did not participate in the Rams' light practice Tuesday, Nov. 24, but could participate Wednesday, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Huddle Up: Keenum was hurt on the ugly late-game incident which somehow escaped notice of the concussion spotters last Sunday, and rest assured he have to pass all tests and protocols with flying colors this week to have a shot at playing Sunday in Cincinnati. If not, Nick Foles will be back at the helm.
Blake Bortles - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is on pace to break the Jaguars' single-season record for touchdown passes and passing yards.
Huddle Up: Bortles, fantasy's eighth-ranked QB, ranks sixth in the league with 20 TD passes and 10th with 2,623 passing yards but has slowed down of late, throwing for 242 yards or fewer in three of his last four games.
Calvin Johnson - WR - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Megatron seemingly is limited by one health issue or another every week, but keeps consistently cranking out fantasy-useful games -- particularly in PPR -- as he's had at least five catches and 67 yards in each of his last nine contests.
Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (groin) and RB Matt Forte (knee) are both expected to suit up in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 26. Both players said they were feeling fine after practice Tuesday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: It sounds like the Bears' decision to hold Jeffery and Forte out of Sunday's game will allow them to be near full strength for the Turkey Day NFC North tussle against the Pack, but fantasy owners are going to have to check back on Wednesday and Thursday evening just to make sure.
Vernon Davis - TE - Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos used multiple tight end sets on 83.8 percent of their Week 11 plays with QB Brock Osweiler under center as opposed to using three-wide receiver sets 60 percent of the time with QB Peyton Manning playing. TE Vernon Davis was more involved as a result, and the Broncos' ground game was successful.
Huddle Up: It's bumped up the value of both Davis and Owen Daniels, but with the two drawing near-equal looks, it keeps both from being TE1 considerations.
Gary Barnidge - TE - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge has been targeted on 17 percent of his routes with QB Josh McCown and just 9 percent of his routes with QB Johnny Manziel. McCown will start in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Barnidge did catch six of his eight targets for 65 yards and a TD from Manziel in Week 10, but there's no denying the tight end has had a special rapport with McCown.
Eric Ebron - TE - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said his recent struggles will end this week. Ebron did not catch a pass last week against the Oakland Raiders and has only totaled seven catches for 52 yards the last three weeks.
Huddle Up: Following Thursday's matchup against the Eagles, Ebron has some tight end-friendly matchups against the Packers (eight most fantasy points allowed to opposing TEs) , Rams (14th) and Saints (first) looming, and he should be on your radar if you need help at the position.
LeSean McCoy - RB - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy already has more rushing yards in 2015 (610) than Buffalo's leading rusher, Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson, did last year (525), and McCoy has only played in eight games this season.
Huddle Up: McCoy has at least 94 total yards in five straight games and has scored three TDs during that span, giving his fantasy owners a nice down-the-stretch bump.
Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is dealing with a shoulder injury, and head coach Rex Ryan expects Taylor to be able to play in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Coaches and players usually err on the optimistic side, so see what Taylor is -- or isn't -- able to do in practice this week.
Peyton Manning - QB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot, ribs) will miss at least the next two weeks as he continues to recover from a partially torn plantar fascia and a rib injury, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Manning will still be able to participate in workouts and be a part of team meetings, but his foot will also be in a cast for at least a week.
Huddle Up: That puts Brock Osweiler at the helm for at least the matchups against the Patriots and Chargers and cover the rest of the regular season in most fantasy leagues. Adjust accordingly ...
