  • CLE Wide Receiver #2
    Cooper managed only one limited session this week but apparently did enough to both clear concussion protocol and put his chest injury behind him, reportedly now on track to suit up against the Jaguars in Week 14. His quarterback situation remains a mystery with the team yet to announce whether rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson or veteran Joe Flacco will be under center.
  • CLE Quarterback #15
    In addition to elevating Flacco, the Browns also waived backup quarterback P.J. Walker. The team has not announced a starting quarterback for Week 14, but the decision to elevate Flacco is enough to suggest he could get the nod come Sunday. Flacco threw for 254 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in last week’s loss to the Rams, as the Browns’ offense looked much better with him under center rather than Dorian Thompson-Robinson. We wouldn’t go so far as to assume Flacco is starting, as Stefanski has kept his decision tightly knit, but things are trending in that direction.
  • LAR Kicker #3
    According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Crosby is preparing to play in Sunday’s game against the Ravens. The veteran kicker was signed to the Rams’ practice squad earlier this week after Lucas Havrisik missed two field goals and an extra point in the team’s last two games. As long as he’s nailing kicks, Crosby should have a chance to win the starting kicker job for the Rams for the remainder of the season. He converted on 25-of-29 field goals with the Packers last season, with three of his misses coming on attempts from 50-plus yards.
  • HOU Kicker #15
    According to Wilson, Fairbairn is fairing well in his recovery from a strained quad; he’s just not quite ready to go this week. The team won’t be activating him from injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game against the Jets and has instead elevated Matt Ammendola from the practice squad. Ammendola is 6-of-9 on field goal attempts this season and made all three of his attempts in last week’s win over the Broncos.
  • JAX Quarterback #16
    The news of Rourke being signed to the active roster means more for Trevor Lawrence and his fantasy managers than it does for Rourke. While it’s too early to say whether or not Lawrence will suit up in Week 14 against the Browns, teams tend to add an extra quarterback to the roster in anticipation of a player not playing. Head coach Doug Pederson said on Friday that Lawerence would “probably” be a game-time decision, so the signing of Rourke could be nothing more than the Jags doing their due diligence to prepare for anything. If we don’t hear any update on Lawrence Saturday, we’ll likely be waiting until the team releases their inactives to have clarity on his Week 14 status.
  • NO Wide Receiver #22
    According to Underhill, the initial belief was that Shaheed suffered a contusion to his quad, but “a second opinion showed it is more serious.” We don’t know how much more serious the injury is, but it’s going to sideline Shaheed for at least one more week, and it’s not unrealistic to think it could extend beyond that. Shaheed has caught 33 passes for 534 yards and three touchdowns this season and is third among Saints receivers in targets (55). With Shaheed and Michael Thomas (knee) both out this week, we will be looking at another busy day for Chris Olave (illness, questionable) if he’s able to play.
  • SEA Quarterback #7
    Smith was added to the injury report as a limited participant on Thursday after not appearing on the report at all to start the week. Pete Carroll was non-committal on Smith’s status when talking to reporters, only saying, “We’ll see.” He also told reporters Smith was rested for the final day of practice. Smith should be able to play through the injury, though this is something fantasy managers need to monitor leading up to kickoff. Drew Lock would draw the start versus the 49ers’ vaunted defense. If he does get the nod, every pass-catcher on the roster would take a notable hit from a fantasy perspective.
  • KC Running Back #10
    The shoulder injury Pacheco is dealing with is the same shoulder he hurt last year, according to Chiefs beat writer Pete Sweeney. Sweeney also noted that the team is still evaluating Pacheco’s injury, but a stint on injured reserve would be awful for fantasy managers. With players on injured reserve required to miss at least four games, Pacheco being placed on injured reserve before Week 14 would mean he isn’t eligible to return until Week 18. Fantasy managers should be stashing either Clyde Edwards-Helaire or Jerick McKinnon where they can afford to do so, as both could quickly become fantasy-relevant beyond Week 14.
  • GB Running Back #28
    Dillon has been limited in each of the Packers’ first two practices and should be good to go for Monday night’s game against the Giants. His Week 14 fantasy stock, however, could take a bit of a hit, as Aaron Jones is also trending toward a return from his knee injury suffered in Week 11. We’ll assume Dillon will be ready to go, barring any unexpected developments.
  • GB Running Back #33
    Speaking with the media on Friday, Jones said he hopes to show he’ll be ready to play when the Packers take the field for Saturday’s practice to close out the week. Two straight limited practices to start the week suggest Jones is trending toward playing in Week 13 against the Giants, although we’ll have a better sense of his availability when the team announces their game-day statuses on Saturday. If Jones is able to go, he should have top-24 fantasy upside in his return.
