  • CIN Wide Receiver #1
    Ja’Marr Chase caught 12-of-15 targets for 141 yards in the Bengals’ Week 3 win over the Rams.
    The Bengals started the game by peppering Chase on the opening drive and Burrow continued looking his way for easy completions. Chase was largely confined to short area work on a night where Burrow’s mobility was affected by a nagging calf strain, but head coach Zac Taylor was able to move him around the formation enough to get him one-on-one coverage for most of the evening. Fantasy managers have to be happy with the Week 3 production after the electric wide receiver failed to provide solid counting stats during the first two games of the season. Next up is a more forgiving matchup with the pass-funnel defense of the Titans in Week 4.
  • NE Quarterback #4
    The Athletic’s Jeff Howe reports the Patriots are preparing QB Bailey Zappe to start Week 13 against the Chargers.
    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
    NFL Insider Josina Anderson reports the Panthers are expected to be interested in Lions OC Ben Johnson for head coach.
    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.
  • FA Linebacker #53
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports LB Shaquille Leonard, who has visited the Eagles and Cowboys, is expected to make a decision over the weekend.
    The Cowboys and divisional rival Eagles both hosted Leonard for visits this week. He was surprisingly released by the Colts earlier this season, dealing with a string of injuries that have hampered his availability. Now visiting two NFC contending teams in need of a linebacker, Leonard will make a signing decision over the weekend and presumably join his new team prior to Week 14.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #10
    Rams WR Cooper Kupp (ankle) was a full practice participant on Wednesday.
    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.
  • DAL Tight End #89
    Cowboys TE Peyton Hendershot (ankle) is questionable for Thursday’s game against the Seahawks.
    Hendershot’s practice window to be activated off injured reserve has been open for a couple of weeks. He was initially put on injured reserve with an ankle injury and has one week of activation eligibility left. While every Cowboys player on the 53-man roster practiced Wednesday and is available for Thursday’s matchup against the Seahawks, Hendershot is a candidate to be activated prior to the game. Jake Ferguson has been the Cowboys’ primary tight end with Hendershot out.
  • LAC Wide Receiver #5
    Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said there is a possibility WR Joshua Palmer (knee) returns this season.
    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.
  • KC Linebacker #32
    Chiefs LB Nick Bolton (wrist) returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday.
    Bolton has been sidelined with a wrist injury since October. He was placed on injured reserve and is now eligible to return. Bolton’s limited practice indicates he is close to returning to play, and the Chiefs have 21 days to activate him.
  • ARI Tight End #85
    Trey McBride (groin) did not practice Wednesday.
    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
    Kenneth Walker (oblique) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Cowboys.
    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.
  • DEN Wide Receiver
    Marvin Mims (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
    A limited session suggests Mims will be off the injury report by Friday, though it’s not great to see him on the report yet again. He was added to the report with an ankle issue ahead of Week 11. Mims has been running more routes lately but hasn’t converted them into an increase in production. Healthy or not, he isn’t on the fantasy radar heading into Week 13.
