Latest Player News

All Player News
  • IND Running Back #28
    Steichen mostly dodged questions about Taylor’s status after Taylor underwent thumb surgery last week. NFL Network reported Taylor would miss 3-5 weeks following the procedure. Fantasy managers should bet on Zack Moss once again taking the Colts’ lead back role in place of Taylor this week against the Bengals. Rotoworld’s Denny Carter highlighted Moss in the Week 14 Regression Files.
  • LAC Wide Receiver #5
    Palmer was placed on injured reserve in early November with a knee sprain. Head coach Brandon Staley said Palmer, who functioned as the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Keenan Allen, would return at some point this season. It appears Palmer could be back in action over the next couple weeks, barring any setbacks. Palmer averaged 84 receiving yards per game from Week 3-7 and would be a locked-in WR3 option in 12-team fantasy leagues.
  • PIT Running Back #22
    Harris popped up on the injury report with a new knee issue on Tuesday. He was not listed with an injury on Monday, but now was listed as not practicing with a Thursday game looming in Week 14. Wednesday’s practice status will provide clarity on Harris’ health for Thursday against the Patriots, but his new knee injury is a situation to monitor. If Harris misses time, Jaylen Warren will receive a major boost for fantasy managers.
  • NE Wide Receiver #81
    Douglas missed Week 13 with a concussion he suffered in Week 12. With a short week leading up to a Thursday matchup against the Steelers, back-to-back missed practice listings do not bode well for Douglas’ Week 14 status. He leads the Patriots in receiving yards as a rookie and if Douglas cannot play this week, DeVante Parker is slated to be the team’s primary receiver.
  • JAX Quarterback #16
    Although it’s unlikely, the Jaguars are holding out hope that Lawrence can give it a go in Week 14. According to Howe, Lawrence will be receiving around the clock treatment to help his high ankle sprain. It would be a miraculous comeback if Lawrence were able to suit up, but fantasy managers shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet. Stay tuned.
  • JAX Wide Receiver #13
    Kirk left Monday night’s game against the Bengals after catching a 26-yard pass from Trevor Lawrence — probably his final reception of the 2023 season. Kirk’s absence will create a fantasy-viable slot role for rookie WR Parker Washington, who caught all six of his targets for 61 yards and a score against the Bengals. Washington ran 80 percent of his pass routes from the slot. He should be picked up in most 12-team PPR formats.
  • FA Quarterback #7
    Boyle threw four picks and one touchdown in two games as New York’s starter after the team succumbed to public pressure and benched Zach Wilson. The team has reportedly asked Wilson to step back into to the starting job — a request not fully embraced by the third-year quarterback. Wilson will likely get the starting gig for Week 14 against the Texans now that Boyle is out of the picture. The Jets signed journeyman QB Brett Rypien on Tuesday.
  • JAX Quarterback #16
    Pederson qualified the injury description by calling it “just” a high ankle sprain, but as fantasy managers know, such an injury can cost a player several games. NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe reported Tuesday morning that Lawrence should be able to return to the field at some point this season. He’s definitely out for Week 14 against the Browns, meaning C.J. Beathard will be under center for Jacksonville.
  • NYG Quarterback #15
    DeVito has played well of late, with four touchdowns and no interceptions to go along with a 68.7 percent completion rate over his past two outings. He’ll get the nod for Monday night’s game against Green Bay despite Tyrod Taylor’s practice window opening this week. Taylor continues to recover from a serious rib injury he sustained last month. DeVito is only viable in deeper superflex formats against the Packers.
  • JAX Quarterback #16
    Lawrence bent back awkwardly in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s loss to the Bengals and proceeded to limp for several minutes to the Jacksonville locker room. Wolfe said Lawrence “tried to stand on ankle before leaving in walking boot/crutches.” He’ll likely miss multiple weeks with the apparently serious ankle injury but should be back in 2023, per Wolfe. Until then, CJ Beathard — who acquitted himself well against the Bengals — will be under center for the Jaguars. It’s a downgrade for all fantasy-relevant Jaguars besides, perhaps, Evan Engram, who should absorb more check downs in the coming weeks.
