James Jones - WR - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his practice designation is an estimate.
Huddle Up: Jones will play as he has all season, but health isn't the real issue here as he's had no more than six targets or two receptions in each of his last five games, including his no-catch outing on two targets last Sunday. Start him only if you're desperate.
Michael Floyd - WR - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals WRs Michael Floyd and John Brown are both listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Cincinnati Bengals with hamstring injuries and are expected to be game-time decisions. Floyd has not practiced all week while Brown was limited Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday.
Huddle Up: The major problem for fantasy owners here is the Cards have a second straight Sunday-night kickoff, leaving their lineups in limbo if they wait on either one of the two wideouts. Floyd obviously is more of a question mark than Brown after not practicing all week, and reserve Jaron Brown could be a sneaky play if one or both are absent.
Vincent Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 11. Jackson returned to limited practice Thursday and Friday this week after sitting out Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Jackson appears to have his best chance of playing since Week 7, but it figures to come down to game-time call Sunday.
Corey Brown - WR - Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) did not practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is doubtful for Week 11 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Brown's injury has opened the door for second-round rookie Devin Funchess, who is in line to make his first NFL start Sunday. Funchess has recorded five of his seven catches and 112 of his 202 receiving yards in the last two weeks as he gained more trust in the offense.
Darren McFadden - RB - Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (groin) started having an issue with his groin Wednesday, Nov. 18, and he didn't do much in practice Thursday and was still limited Friday. He's officially listed as questionable for the Week 11 game at Miami.
Huddle Up: McFadden has avoided the big injuries have have marked his seasons past, but perhaps the heavy workload is starting to take its toll as he's averaged 26.3 touches over the last four games. It's also pertinent and interesting to note that the recently signed Robert Turbin reportedly is now No. 2 on the Cowboys' RB depth chart.
Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) said he'll be playing in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings after missing last week's game. 'I felt good today. My coach said I was moving good, I was looking good,' Lacy said. 'It's a step in the right direction.' However, head coach Mike McCarthy already said earlier this week that RB James Starks would start the game against the Minnesota Vikings, with Lacy spelling him.
Huddle Up: Yeah, Lacy will be in uniform Sunday, but he best belongs seated on fantasy benches until we some signs of improvement and higher usage as he's had no more than 12 touches or 47 total yards in any game since Week 5 with Starks shouldering the load.
Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Nov. 22, after practicing on a limited basis Friday. He's officially listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: It might be wise to look for other WR options this week after Sanders played at something less than 100 percent last Sunday, sustained a concussion on a wicked hit and finished without a catch.
Matt Forte - RB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) and WR Alshon Jeffery (groin, shoulder) are both questionable to face the Denver Broncos in Week 11. Forte returned to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 20 after sitting out an artificial-turf practice Thursday while Jeffery did not practice for a second straight day.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners of Bears players have become all-too familiar with game-time decisions so at least they'll have the drill down pat when it comes to dealing with these two Sunday. Check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report for the latest an hour or so before kickoff.
Malcom Floyd - WR - San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) didn't practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: The Chargers' bye week wasn't quite enough for Floyd to recover from his Week 9 shoulder injury, and his absence will mean more looks for the rest of the Bolts' pass-catchers, most notably Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gates.
Leonard Hankerson - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) will play Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Dan Quinn.
Huddle Up: Hankerson, who had 22 catches for 291 yards and two TDs in the Falcons' first six games, last played in Week 7, and his return will give Matt Ryan another weapon and likely steal some the big target numbers of late away from TE Jacob Tamme.
Mark Sanchez - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) out.
Huddle Up: Sanchez, who was 14 of 23 for 156 yards and an interception following Bradford's injury last Sunday, will make his first start of the year, and he'll be greeted by a decent matchup as the visiting Bucs surrender the 11th most fantasy points to opposing QBs. You do a lot worse for a streaming QB if you need help this week
Ryan Mathews - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is out for Week 11. RB Kenjon Barner will have a role Sunday, Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: Mathews is averaging 9.9 touches and 60.6 total yards per game and leads Philly with six TDs. The speedy Barner should see his first offensive work of the season, but DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles figure to be the primary beneficiaries.
Julius Thomas - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas had five catches for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 19-13 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.
Huddle Up: The Jags appeared more focused on getting Thomas involved, targeting him a team-high eight times. He still finished with only 28 yards -- which actually is a high-water mark in his last four games -- but he did bail out his fantasy owners with his second TD grab of the season.
Dexter McCluster - RB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (knee) exited against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11, holding his right knee.
Huddle Up: The diminutive McCluster appeared to take a hard shot just above his knee and was seen hobbling badly on the sideline with a ice-pack on his knee. He'll at least have a few extra days to rest and recover now after finishing with two rushes for zero yards and two catches for 18 more Thursday night.
Matt Forte - RB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 19 and indicated he may not play in the Week 11 game against the Denver Broncos since the team plays against the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Recovery times are often tweaked to best fit a team's schedule, and there's no denying the NFC North rematch with the Pack is much more important to the surging Bears than Sunday's interconference clash against the Broncos.
Carlos Hyde - RB - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 19, and is not expected to play in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Hyde hasn't played since the Week 7 loss to the Seahawks, and if he misses a third straight game expect to see plenty of Shaun Draughn after he midly surprised with 96 total yards on 20 touches in Week 9 against the Falcons after signing off the street earlier that week.
Bishop Sankey - RB - Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans have declared RB Bishop Sankey, WR Kendall Wright, NT Al Woods, WR Andrew Turzilli, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, DL Mike Martin and OG Quinton Spain inactive for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Sankey's fall from grace continues as the 2014 second-round pick is a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. He'll make room for the debut of fifth-round rookie David Cobb, who will share carries with starter Antonio Andrews.
T.J. Yeldon - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot) is officially active for the Week 11 game against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 19. The Jags' inactives are RB Bernard Pierce, LB Chris Smith, RB Joe Banyard, C Luke Bowanko, DT Michael Z. Bennett, TE Nic Jacobs and CB Nick Marshall.
Huddle Up: The rookie only got in a limited practice Wednesday, but will be good to go tonight if you need him against a shaky Titans' defense.
Sam Bradford - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) still hadn't been cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: There's still a sliver of a chance Bradford could still play, but barring a sudden reversal of fortune it'll be Mark Sanchez taking aim at the Bucs' suspect secondary Sunday.
Frank Gore - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore has had restrictions on his workload thus far, but the Colts have given indications that they could unleash Gore with QB Andrew Luck (kidney) out. 'If he's rolling like that,' head coach Chuck Pagano said, 'and we're staying balanced and he feels good, we're going to do what we have to do to win the ball game.' Gore had 28 carries in Week 10 and said he felt fine because he hasn't taken many square hits. RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been working as the third-down back and given the team good pass protection and reliable hands as a receiver.
Huddle Up: Gore's 29 touches in Week 9 resulted in his first 100-plus-total-yard outing (102) of the season and played a big role in the Colts' win, so there's little reason why Indy won't want to keep a good thing going. Sunday's opponent -- the Falcons -- though, have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs this season so eekp your expectations reasonable.
