Latest Player News

All Player News
  • ARI Wide Receiver #2
    It’s a rosy outlook for a player who hasn’t practiced this week with a heel issue. Michael Wilson (shoulder) was already declared out against the Steelers and Trey McBride is dealing with a groin injury. It’s a mess for Arizona. Brown would be a boom-bust WR3 option if he can suit up Sunday.
  • NYJ Quarterback #8
    That, per Cimini, could change in the coming weeks as Rodgers — who tore his Achilles tendon in September — ramps up his practice participation. The Jets opened Rodgers’ 21-day practice window on Wednesday, a move that could put Rodgers back under center by Week 15 or Week 16 if the Jets are in the postseason hunt. Rodgers this week acknowledged that he could re-injure his Achilles with a rushed return to game action. “My thing is, what’s the worst that can happen? Something unfortunate again and then you just slow the rehab down,” he said. With the Jets at 4-7, there’s almost no chance we see Rodgers on the field before the start of next season.
  • SEA Wide Receiver #14
    Facing both one of his toughest team and individual assignments in the Cowboys and DROY-contending CB DaRon Bland, Metcalf somehow had by far his best game of the year, posting a new season high for yards while doubling his touchdown total. The scoring started with his 73-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter after he got a step on Bland and was off to the races at truly eye-popping speed. He then beat Bland off the line at the goal line for a one-yard score in the closing seconds of the second quarter. Bland was also the closest defender when play-action freed Metcalf in the end zone for a three-yard TD in the fourth. Awesome stuff. Also likely a one-off as the Seahawks prepare for a rematch of their Thanksgiving loss to the 49ers in Week 14.
  • DAL Quarterback #4
    Dealing with a surprisingly feisty Seahawks offense, Prescott always had the perfect counterpunch, playing a nearly flawless game as he traded scores with Geno Smith before eventually emerging triumphant. Prescott’s timing was precise and his touch feathery. He tossed zero picks for the eighth time in 12 starts, and continued to relentlessly work his connection with CeeDee Lamb, finding his No. 1 wideout for 12/116/1. He also hit Brandin Cooks and Jake Ferguson for scores. Playing like both a real life and fantasy MVP for the better part of two months, Prescott has a Week 14 fantasy smash spot in the Eagles’ leaky pass defense.
  • SEA Running Back #26
    Grinding out tough yards in Kenneth Walker’s absence, Charbonnet’s last touch was a no-gain stymying on 4th-and-1 from the Cowboys’ 46-yard line at the midway point of the fourth quarter. Announced as doubtful at about the three-minute mark, he was not heard from again as DeeJay Dallas finished the night out in the backfield. Charbonnet could have had a multi-score night but was stood up on a handful of other carries inside the five. His only true goal-line handle was the one-yard score he converted in the second quarter. The “doubtful” tag suggests Charbonnet could have a more serious injury. The Seahawks visit the 49ers in 10 days’ time.
  • CLE Wide Receiver #2
    Cooper has been receiving some maintenance days this week, but his status for Sunday’s game against the Rams is not in doubt. More interesting was Cooper’s Thursday comments on presumptive Sunday starter Joe Flacco, as the wideout called the veteran quarterback’s dropbacks “poetry in motion.” You’ll have to forgive the man after a season spent dealing with Dorian Thompson-Robinson and P.J. Walker. Although Flacco should better deliver the bacon than DTR and PJW, he will still struggle to make Cooper WR2 relevant. Flacco has become an absolute check-down machine at his advanced quarterbacking age.
  • HOU Wide Receiver #85
    Brown has now logged back-to-back practices to start the week and is trending toward a return in Week 13. The veteran receiver last played in Week 10, when he ripped off an unprecedented 172 yards on seven receptions, marking his second-straight 150-yard game of the season. Brown has been a pleasant surprise for the Texans and is now up to 21 receptions for 439 yards and one touchdown on 28 targets. He could return to a crowded receiver room, as Tank Dell, Nico Collins, and Robert Woods are all on track to play this week. Still, it’s hard to imagine the Texans giving Brown less work, even in a crowded receiver room.
  • KC Running Back #1
    McKinnon was sidelined last week with his groin injury, but a return in the middle of this week suggests it’s nothing too severe. The Chiefs’ RB2 hasn’t enjoyed the same role he did last season when he unexpectedly emerged as a fantasy league-winner while totaling 56 receptions for 512 yards and nine touchdowns. Instead, McKinnon has watched Isiah Pacheco seize control of the Chiefs’ backfield while limiting McKinnon to 32 touches and 185 yards over 10 games. McKinnon would carry some value if Pacheco were to miss time, but can be kept off the fantasy radar for now.
  • NE Running Back #15
    Elliott’s availability carries little to no impact as far as real football is concerned. As far as fantasy is concerned, his absence would mean a busier day for Rhamondre Stevenson, who has still managed to average 17.9 opportunities per game despite Elliott eating into his workload. Elliott has rushed for 100 yards on 22 carries over the last two weeks but can’t be seriously considered in fantasy, even if active.
  • NE Wide Receiver #81
    Douglas is in the league’s concussion protocol and is unlikely to play in Week 13 against the Patriots. The rookie receiver has been a lone bright spot in an offense that ranks among the worst in the league as they’ve struggled to figure out the quarterback position. Douglas isn’t expected to play. If he does, fantasy managers need not consider starting him against the Chargers.
