  • SEA Running Back #9
    Walker was listed as not practicing for the second straight day with an oblique injury. He missed a Week 12 Thanksgiving loss to the 49ers and is now in danger of missing the Seahawks’ second straight Thursday game. Wednesday’s practice will determine Walker’s status, but Zach Charbonnet is slated to start in another tough matchup against the Cowboys in Week 13.
  • NE Quarterback #19
    The Patriots are bringing back Grier just as quickly as they let him go. Right before their Week 12 game against the Giants, they released Grier and proceeded to let Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe battle it out. Unfortunately neither did well against a lowly Giants’ team and the Patriots quarterback room is now in shambles. Don’t be shocked if you see Grier in action soon, the last time we saw him he was having a solid preseason with the Cowboys.
  • IND Running Back #28
    This comes as a surprise in the football world as many people didn’t even know Taylor left Week 12 with an injury. The Colts hope to have him back in 2-3 weeks and will look to avoid putting him on IR. Zack Moss will go back to being the Colts’ RB1 for the time being. He’ll be a reliable high-end RB2 in that role until Taylor returns.
  • DAL Linebacker #11
    After getting in a full practice on Monday, Parsons popped up as a DNP on Tuesday with an illness. Normally this wouldn’t be much of an issue, but the Cowboys play on Thursday night against the Seahawks. While it would be surprising for an illness to keep Parsons out of the game, it’s possible that he may play at less than 100 percent, which could limit his snaps or effectiveness. It’s certainly a situation to monitor over the next 24-48 hours.
  • FA Linebacker #53
    Leonard reportedly had another visit lined up with the Eagles prior to heading to Dallas, so this isn’t a surprise. It’s still possible that the veteran could reach an agreement with the Cowboys, but he appears to be in no rush to sign on the dotted lined. While the 28-year-old linebacker still appears to be working his way back from injury, he played on 70 percent of the Colts’ defensive snaps this season and totaled 65 tackles and two TFLs, so he will be a solid addition for whoever signs him.
  • MIN Wide Receiver #18
    The Vikings played it safe with their superstar receiver and it looks like it’ll pay off. With the Vikings having a bye in Week 13, it’ll give Jefferson even more time to rest his hamstring. It looks like we could see him back in Week 14, just in time to push you through to the fantasy playoffs.
  • PHI Tackle #65
    The much missed Johnson said he popped scar tissue in his groin from last season, which explains why he sat in Week 12. The Eagles will need every reinforcement they can get as they are set to have a showdown with the 49ers who have been on fire since returning from their bye. Jalen Hurts was able to make do without his best lineman against the Bills, but having Johnson will greatly improve the Eagles’ chances of operating on offense.
  • PIT Quarterback #8
    This news came from The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly, who wrote, “Kenny Pickett has an ankle injury that may limit him early in the week.” Whatever injury he’s dealing with, it wasn’t enough to force him to miss any time against the Bengals in Week 12. Any potential load management shouldn’t stop Pickett from suiting up in Week 13 when the Steelers play host to the Cardinals. Even in a week that includes six teams on bye, Pickett will be hard to trust outside of 2QB/superflex leagues.
  • IND Running Back #28
    Taylor played through the entire second half of Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers with the injury and finished the day with 91 yards and two touchdowns. Despite gutting it out in Week 12, his Week 13 status appears to be in jeopardy. We don’t know if his status being “in doubt” carries more weight beyond Week 13, but it sounds like this is an injury that could result in a multi-week absence. Fantasy managers who opted to hold Zack Moss despite his diminished roles would reap the benefits of Taylor’s absence if he were to miss any time. Moss was among the league leaders in rushing yards before Taylor returned and has two 100-yard rushing performances on his ledger this season.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Tepper took 14 minutes to speak to the media on Tuesday, a day after he dismissed head coach Frank Reich following a 1-11 start to the season. In addition to reiterating the team’s confidence in Young, Tepper also did his best to debunk any rumors of Reich and company preferring C.J. Stroud over Young, saying the decision to select Young was “unanimous” among the staff and front office. The Panthers don’t have much of a choice outside of embracing Young in 2024. They gave up a king’s ransom this offseason to acquire the No.1 overall pick from the Bears before the draft and are now left without a first-round pick heading into 2024. They are still on pace to have a handful of top-100 draft picks if things continue in the direction they’ve been headed, which will give them multiple opportunities to build around Young in next year’s draft.
