  • NE Quarterback #4
    Zappe was getting first-team reps at practice on Wednesday after replacing Mac Jones in the Patriots’ Week 12 loss against the Giants. He was in for the second half of the game, with an unappetizing 54 yards and an interception on 9-of-14 passing. Still, the Patriots believe he will be an upgrade over Jones and intend to start Zappe in Week 13 against the Chargers. Malik Cunningham was getting second-team reps, indicating he may be Zappe’s backup with Jones falling to third on the depth chart.
  • DET Offensive Coordinator
    Frank Reich was recently fired as head coach of the Panthers, who are 1-10 after drafting QB Bryce Young first overall in the 2023 NFL Draft. Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson received head coaching interest from the Panthers last off-season, but had declined an interview and chose to stay in Detroit. Reich, who was hired by the Panthers instead, is now out after 11 games and the 37-year-old Johnson is expected to receive interest for the Panthers’ head coaching vacancy again.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #10
    Kupp suffered an ankle injury in Week 11 and played through it in Week 12 despite starting the week with a DNP in practice. This week, Kupp starts off with a full practice, putting him on track to play in Week 13. He seems to be managing his ankle fine and should be a fantasy start against the Browns on Sunday.
  • LAC Wide Receiver #5
    Palmer is eligible to come off injured reserve in Week 13. However, Staley’s comments don’t invoke optimism that Palmer will be active immediately for Week 13. Initially placed on injured reserve with a knee sprain, Palmer’s role leaves a void filled loosely by Quentin Johnston and Jalen Guyton targets. Fantasy managers can keep Palmer in IR spots, though will have to look elsewhere until Palmer comes back, if at all this season.
  • ARI Tight End #85
    McBride was in uniform for the session but worked off to the side, ultimately going down as a DNP. Not much is known about his injury as of Wednesday. Should he be forced to miss Week 13, rookie Elijah Higgins and veteran Geoff Swaim would both see reps. Neither would be an ideal streaming option at tight end.
  • SEA Running Back #9
    Walker was always a long-shot to play this week, so a doubtful tag isn’t a surprise. He will look to return in Week 14 versus the 49ers, though, after not practicing at all this week, that’s not a given for the second-year running back. Until he is healthy, Zach Charbonnet will dominate the work in the Seattle backfield. Charbonnet will straddle the RB1/2 border in a tough matchup with the Cowboys’ defense this week.
  • PHI Tight End #88
    Goedert went down with the arm injury in Week 9. The Eagles declined to put him on injured reserve meaning they expect him to miss fewer than four games. He has only missed two so far and looks likely to sit for a third when the Eagles take on the 49ers on Sunday. Jack Stoll will start in his place but has no fantasy value for Week 13.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #11
    Brown played through the thigh issue last week after missing Wednesday’s practice, so a limited session this time around is actually an improvement. There’s no reason to believe he won’t play in Week 13. Brown will sit firmly within the WR1 ranks for Philly’s matchup with San Francisco.
  • LAC Wide Receiver #13
    There seems to be no indication that the injury is anything serious, and Allen often gets Wednesday practices off for “vet rest.” However, the team listed him as a DNP with a quad injury on the official report, so it’s at least something to monitor as the week goes on.
  • NO Wide Receiver #22
    Shaheed reportedly avoided a major quad injury, but the issue, suffered in Week 12, is likely to sideline him for at least a week. Chris Olave has a shot at playing despite going down with a concussion last week. With Michael Thomas on injured reserve, A.T. Perry will be the next man up to serve as the Saints’ No. 2 receiver. He is worth a stash in deeper leagues.
