Latest Player News

All Player News
  • CLE Quarterback #15
    When speaking to the media on Wednesday, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski made it clear that Joe Flacco was the back-up to Dorian Thompson-Robinson. With Thompson-Robinson entering concussion protocol after taking a big hit against the Broncos on Sunday, that would mean that Flacco would be in line to start if Thomson-Robinson is unable to play. Flacco threw for 1,051 five five touchdowns and three starts over four starts with the Jets last season, but is incredibly immobile, which could be good news for Aaron Donald and the Rams defense on Sunday.
  • CLE Defensive End #95
    Earlier in the week Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that everything check out okay with Garrett’s shoulder but that he was managing soreness. As a result, it seems likely that the team will monitor his practice reps this week to ensure he can get as close to 100 percent as possible on Sunday. Given Garrett’s experience and skill set, he likely doesn’t need to do too much practicing this week to be ready for this weekend’s game against the Rams. When asked directly about whether he liked Garrett’s chances of playing, Stefanski said, “I do.”
  • HOU Wide Receiver #3
    While Dell was able to play the full game on Sunday, he did get his calf checked out after the game, so there is some indication he’s battling a legitimate injury. However, he spent his off day on Tuesday taking 10 kids from the local community on a shopping spree for the holidays, which would seem to indicate that the team isn’t overly concerned about him being mobile on his injured calf. We’ll await more information from the team, but it would seem like Wednesday’s absence is precautionary.
  • NE Wide Receiver #81
    The rookie suffered a head injury on a punt return in Week 12 but told the media after the game it was just a neck injury and not a concussion. Still, he was not at practice on Wednesday and sources claim he has entered concussion protocol, which could simply be to monitor him for latent symptoms since he suffered another concussion earlier in the season. He still has a couple of days to get back onto the practice field, but if he were to miss, the Patriots would be left with Juju Smith-Schuster and Tyquan Thornton to lead the receiving corps.
  • NE Quarterback #4
    Zappe replaced Mac Jones in the second half of the Patriots’ Week 12 loss to the Giants, completing 9-of-14 passes for 54 yards and an interception. Him being first through passing drills on Wednesday is a good sign that he may be in line to start in Week 13 against the Chargers. However, even more interestingly, it was Malik Cunningham who worked in behind Zappe and not Mac Jones, suggesting that we might not be far off from Cunningham getting a chance at NFL game action.
  • SEA Running Back #9
    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday seemed uncharacteristically pessimistic about Walker’s chances of suiting up Thursday night against Dallas. Fantasy managers can expect rookie RB Zach Charbonnet to once again work as Seattle’s starter. He had 18 touches — including four receptions — last week against the 49ers. Charbonnet is a locked-in RB2 if Walker remains sidelined.
  • NYJ Quarterback #8
    About three months after tearing his Achilles tendon, Rodgers, who will be 40 in December, could return in late December, though he has hedged on his miracle return in recent interviews. Rodgers has not been cleared for contact and will be limited in practice over the coming weeks. The Jets would likely need to win their next two games for Rodgers to have any reason to return in Week 15 or Week 16. Until then, Tim Boyle will start for New York.
  • MIN Quarterback #15
    O’Connell in a Tuesday presser appeared ready to move on from Josh Dobbs after his Monday night meltdown against the Bears. Dobbs threw for 185 yards, one touchdown, and four picks, appearing out of sorts throughout. O’Connell said the team would choose a starting quarterback for Week 14 (after the team’s bye) based on which signal caller could best get the ball to Justin Jefferson, who is returning from a hamstring injury. “We’re going to make sure that whoever is playing quarterback is aware and understands the intent behind plays where either Justin is the primary [target], or based upon coverage, based upon the defensive look, how to quickly and efficiently get to the right place to go with the football,” O’Connell said. That puts rookie QB Jaren Hall and Nick Mullens firmly in play to take over for Dobbs in Week 14 against the Raiders. Both QBs should be monitored in superflex formats.
  • TB Quarterback #6
    Mayfield attended Wednesday’s practice after injuring his ankle in Week 12 against the Colts. He missed some snaps but re-entered the game, hobbled and clearly playing through discomfort. “He’s banged up, seems like a week where he won’t do much,” Auman said. Though the Bucs should attack Carolina on the ground, Mayfield should suffice as a solid floor play in superflex leagues against a Panthers defense allowing the tenth highest drop back EPA since Week 9.
  • ATL Tight End #8
    Pitts, who hasn’t seen more than five targets in a game since the middle of October, most recently ran a route on just 66 percent of the Falcons’ drop backs in Week 12, catching both of his targets for 22 yards. Smith said MyCole Pruitt and Parker Hesse were better fits for what the Falcons were trying to do against the Saints last Sunday (run the ball). In the run-first Atlanta offense, Pitts is not a viable fantasy option in 12-team leagues. Maybe next year.
