Steven Hauschka - PK - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills PK Stephen Hauschka (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Hauschka has posted solid numbers this season, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineups.
Jordan Matthews - WR - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and probably can be avoided even if he plays.
Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Clay will be able to play in Week 12. He has been held to only 40 yards in the last two games combined and probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners may want to use other options in their lineups since Benjamin could be limited if he is active for the game.
Leonard Fournette - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is absent from the team's Week 12 injury report despite practicing in limited fashion all week.
Huddle Up: Since carrying fantasy owners for the first six weeks of the season, Fournette hasn't been nearly as dominant since. Some of that can be attributed to circumstance - he missed one game due to injury, another due to a one-game suspension and had a bye week mixed in there as well - but some of it can also be blamed on the ankle injury he said last week could bother him the rest of the season. Nevertheless, due to workload and talent, he remains a RB1 in fantasy.
Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (illness) told reporters Friday, Nov. 24, he will be ready to play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Gronkowski is coming off a disappointing fantasy effort in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders, but he'll get another opportunity to remind owners why he's considered the best tight end in the game in another plus-matchup. He remains an elite TE1 play in all formats.
Danny Woodhead - RB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead will not be on a snap count in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Woodhead was limited to 13 snaps in Week 11 in his return from the Reserve/Injured list with a hamstring injury in part due to the big lead Baltimore enjoyed.
Huddle Up: Woodhead makes for an interesting flex option in PPR leagues this week in that Houston's run defense has been among the best in the league. While Alex Collins is getting more work in the passing game than he was earlier in the season, Woodhead is about as good as it gets in that part of the game among running backs in the league. Owners scrambling from the loss of a player such as Chris Thompson could potentially get similar production from Woodhead moving forward.
JuJu Smith-Schuster - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) will not play in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: This news pretty much locks Antonio Brown into a double-digit target game - he was probably headed there already - and should leave a bit more work for Le'Veon Bell as both a runner and a receiver. The news probably affects Martavis Bryant the most, as he will get one more shot to be relevant in fantasy this year in a plus-matchup. Given his inconsistency to this point, however, owners can be forgiven if they don't want to go down that road.
Curtis Samuel - WR - Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 24. WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list in a corresponding move.
Huddle Up: Head coach Ron Rivera told Panthers.com the plan is ease Olsen back in 'judiciously,' so owners would be advised to sit him this week in fantasy. Regardless, it appears he will have at least one or two full games under his belt before most owners have to decide if he will be a critical part of their fantasy playoff run or not.
Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Considering the fact he suffered his second concussion in four months in Week 10, it is hardly surprising the Falcons are holding him out at least two weeks, even though he logged two limited practices this week. In his absence, Tevin Coleman should be considered a high-end RB2 and a worthy fantasy starter in most leagues.
Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) remains in a non-contact jersey Friday, Nov. 24, and seems unlikely to play in Week 12, according to beat writer Vaughn McClure.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, and Tevin Coleman remains an RB1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will have an MRI on his knee Friday, Nov. 24, but he's expected to miss time. The team has real concern, but they believe the anterior cruciate ligament isn't compromised.
Huddle Up: If Williams misses multiple weeks, he's only a stash option in dynasty formats. Tyrell Williams could be worth the waiver claim after hitting the end zone in Week 12.
Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) remains day to day Friday, Nov. 24, and his status is uncertain for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Benjamin would have a great matchup against a banged-up Kansas City Chiefs secondary, which is in the bottom five at defending the position the last five weeks. He'd be a WR3 in fantasy if he's fit to go. If not, Zay Jones receives a big boost to maybe the top portion of the WR3 realm.
Jay Cutler - QB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is expected to clear the concussion protocol Friday, Nov. 24, or Saturday, Nov. 25, and start in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Cutler has a great matchup, but we've really seen very little from him to make him worthy of a spot start unless you're in dire straits at the position.
Tavarres King - WR - New York Giants
New York Giants WR Tavarres King caught two passes for 36 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: The sad part is that King actually led the team in receiving, but even with Sterling Shepard sidelined, there isn't another Giants receiver worth starting.
Orleans Darkwa - RB - New York Giants
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa carried 11 times for 30 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Darkwa had rushed for at least 70 yards in three straight games prior to tonight's outing, and he remains a potential flex option as the lead back for the Giants.
Evan Engram - TE - New York Giants
New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught three passes for 18 yards but dropped multiple passes in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Engram has fallen into a funk, managing a combined 58 yards over the last three games. He still has TE1 upside, but he is a boom-or-bust play right now.
Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 13 of his 27 passes for 113 yards and an interception in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: The Giants have been sputtering on offense all year, but this was ugly. Even against friendly matchups on paper, Manning can't be trusted.
Vernon Davis - TE - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis failed to catch his only target in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: It was a brutal result for Davis' fantasy owners, who were likely expecting him to feast on a Giants defense that has been horrible at defending tight ends. Don't read too much into the poor outing. Injuries along Washington's offensive line forced Davis to spend most of his time blocking. If Jordan Reed remains sidelined, Davis remains a TE1 candidate.
Byron Marshall - RB - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins RB Byron Marshall rushed four times for 18 yards and caught one pass for 12 yards in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants Thursday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: For those hoping Marshall would fill the role that Chris Thompson occupied, it's time to dial back expectations. It looks like Samaje Perine is the only Washington back worth playing right now.
