  • PIT EDGE #56
    Highsmith left the Steelers’ Week 14 game on Thursday with a neck injury and was later ruled out. He will now need to pass through the league’s concussion protocol in order to suit up in Week 15. Few players have suffered a concussion and played in the following week, but Pittsburgh gets a mini-bye after playing on Thursday, giving Highsmith a decent chance at playing against the Colts. Highsmith has six sacks and seven TFLs this season.
  • 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.
  • SEA Running Back #9
    Pete Carroll told reporters Walker and Charbonnet would be game-time calls. Walker returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session. Walker appears to be trending toward a return, though we won’t know his status for sure until after the first wave of games kicks off on Sunday. If he is active, Walker will rank as an RB2 in a tough matchup with the 49ers’ elite run defense.
  • 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.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #17
    Nacua was limited in Wednesday’s walkthrough, but head coach Sean McVay said he was a full participant. After that, Nacua both participated in full and was listed as a full participant for the remainder of the week. It’s safe to say Nacua will play without any limitations versus the Ravens. In a brutal matchup with Blatimore’s stingy defense, Nacua will rank as a high-end WR2.
  • 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.
  • HOU Tight End #86
    Schultz will now miss his second consecutive game with this hamstring injury, which will put tight end Brevin Jordan in line for another busy day. In Week 13’s matchup against the Broncos, Jordan emerged to catch three passes for 64 yards on five targets and played a season-high 75 percent of the snaps. Jordan will be on the low-end TE2 streaming radar against the Jets.
  • HOU Wide Receiver #85
    Brown didn’t practice on Friday, but the same thing happened last week before he ultimately suited up to play against the Broncos. We wouldn’t read too much into Friday’s DNP, as Brown was a limited participant on Wednesday and a full participant on Thursday. Assuming he’s active, Brown will be on the WR3 radar with Dalton Schultz (hamstring) ruled out and Tank Dell done for the season. Offensive tackle George Fant (hip) was upgraded to a full participant on Friday and is also questionable.
  • NYJ Running Back #20
    Hall returned to practice for a limited session on Friday. Hall played through the ankle issue in Week 13 but saw his role scaled back. Dalvin Cook pitched in for nine carries and was more efficient than Hall on a per-carry basis. Expect Robert Saleh to split his backfield once again if Hall is active. The explosive runner has been bottled up for weeks, pushing him into the middle of the RB2 ranks for Week 14.
