Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is probable for Monday night's game against the Ravens. He put in 3 limited practices this week and is set to return to his pass-catching role. Consider Thomas a risky RB3 or flex in PPR leagues in his 1st game since Week 7. RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) is out again. He still hasn't returned to practice and has no timetable for return. RB Mark Ingram will remain New Orleans' clear lead ball carrier against Baltimore.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora hears that Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) will not play against the Patriots on Sunday. Bush put in 3 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable. "Not ready to go yet," La Canfora said. "Still working to get back." That'll give Theo Riddick another game as Detroit's pass-catching RB, but he's just a lower-end flex option in PPR leagues.

Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. He was listed as a limited participant in practice all week, although Buffalo only practiced on Friday and Saturday because of the snow storm. "We're planning on him to be ready to go," Marrone said of Jackson on Saturday night. It's unclear how big a role Jackson is ready for, though, leaving him as a risky RB3 or flex against a tough Jets run defense.

Hearing Reggie Bush is a no-go for the Lions big game in New England Sunday. Not ready to go yet. Still working to get back (Jason LaCanfora via Twitter)
FF Today's Take: Bush's ankle injury has bothered him for the better part of a month. With Bush out, Joique Bell will become a viable RB2/FLEX option but he's only scored double-digit fantasy points in four games this year. Theo Riddick will also be involved in a pass-catching role out of the backfield.

Texans insider Tania Ganguli considers the chances of RB Arian Foster (groin) playing against the Bengals on Sunday "very, very low." Foster is listed as questionable and is considered a game-time decision. But he didn't practice on Thursday or Friday, so it looks like that groin didn't respond well to the limited workout on Wednesday. We'll find out his official status by noon ET tomorrow, but Foster should be on fantasy benches for now. If he's out, Alfred Blue will serve as Houston's lead back and be a good bet for 20 touches.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner heads into Sunday's Arizona matchup with a "probable" tag and is expected to return after 5 weeks way. Wagner had his injured foot in a cast for 2 weeks after tearing a tendon and then needed 3 weeks of rehab to prepare. We wouldn't bet on him returning to his full role right away and would try to sit him for a week to see what happens. As soon as Wagner regains full-time status, though, he should find his way back into IDP lineups.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters Friday that his team has had no thought of cutting RB Marshawn Lynch loose after this season. “If you guys ever would have asked me — which you didn’t — if you ever would have asked me I would have said we want him around here for as long as he can play,” Carroll said, per the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “He is under contract next year. We’ll be thrilled to have him playing for us next year, so we’ll do everything we can to get that done.” The coach has admitted that Lynch and the team are "working through" some issues, so we'll see how this one plays out in the offseason. Of course, the biggest obstacle might be money. Lynch will be due $5 million in base salary in 2015, plus another $2 million in per-game roster bonuses. That's a steep price for an aging RB, especially when the star QB is awaiting a big-money extension.

Raiders HC Tony Sparano said Friday that he's not turning the backfield over to a healthy RB Latavius Murray just yet. “I know what he did, but he played nine plays and unfortunately got hurt. He had a heck of a run,” Sparano said, per ibabuzz.com. “He also had the ball out one time which we need to get corrected. Like any young player there is a progress you’ve got to see before you feel like you’re going to put him out there in those situations. I’ve had to see that in practice, and little by little I’ve seen it and this has kind of been where it has gone.” It makes sense for a coach to want to make sure his young player stays motivated, but it doesn't take a professional scout to see that Murray's the best back in Oakland. We'd expect him to at least get the biggest share of carries once he returns from his concussion.

The Chiefs have signed WR Jason Avant for the rest of the season. Recently released by the Panthers, the 31-year-old receiver spent his 1st 8 seasons with Andy Reid in Philadelphia. Avant caught 50+ passes in 3 straight years from 2010-12. He's certainly not headed for star status in a weak K.C. pass offense, but Avant could quickly climb a depth chart that has relied on the likes of Frankie Hammond, Junior Hemingway and Donnie Avery this year.

Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos with shoulder and knee injuries. We've known about the shoulder, and it's not a concern. But the knee is new, which makes his Week 12 status a bit murkier. We haven't heard any indication that Miller is in danger of missing Sunday's game, but owners would be wise to have an emergency option in place. Miami-Denver kicks off at 4:25 pm ET.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:57
Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He put in 3 limited practices this week. We’re expecting him to play, but it’s unclear exactly how healthy he is. Falling short of 45 total yards in each of his last 3 games, Bush belongs on fantasy benches for now.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:49
Bucs RB Doug Martin (ankle) put in a limited week of practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. RB Charles Sims (ankle) is also questionable. We’re expecting both guys to play, with Sims leading the backfield in touches. It’s a murky situation, though, leaving the rookie as a risky RB3 or flex. Martin shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.

Missed practice the last two days
Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at NRG Stadium. Foster did not practice twice this week (Thursday, Friday) and was limited Wednesday. Coach Bill O'Brien and Foster didn't provide any clarity Friday about the back's status versus the Bengals. Foster missed last Sunday's victory at Cleveland due to injury. (Houston Chronicle)
FF Today's Take: It's never a good sign when a player misses both Thursday and Friday practices. For now, Foster will be a gametime decision but all signs point to him being inactive. If that happens, Alfred Blue would once again get the start and qualify as an RB2 in Week 12.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. HC Bill O’Brien labeled him a game-time decision on Thursday. After putting in a limited practice on Wednesday, Foster didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday. It’s unclear if he suffered a setback or if Houston is just protecting its fragile star. We’ll find out Foster’s official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a high-risk, high-reward RB1. If not, Alfred Blue will be a solid RB2 against Cincinnati’s 28th-ranked RB defense.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:14
Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Packers. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, and HC Mike Zimmer expects Jennings to play. But he's not much of a fantasy option. Jennings has fallen short of 40 yards in 4 of his last 6 games.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:11
Vikings RB Matt Asiata (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He was unable to practice all week, so consider him questionable to be cleared in time for Week 13. Asiata figures to lose his short-yardage role to Ben Tate soon anyway. He’s droppable in fantasy football.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:08
Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. He tweaked his hammy in practice this week. TE Dion Sims could see a slightly bigger pass-catching role with Clay out, but he’s not a fantasy option.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:06
Rams TE Jared Cook (back) was limited in practice this week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. We haven’t heard any indication that he’s in danger of sitting out, but the back issue only makes him a shakier fantasy play. Cook has topped 25 yards in just 1 of his past 5 games.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 12:02
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday’s showdown with the Seahawks. He didn’t practice all week. Fitz might try to gut it out for a big game, but he won’t be anywhere near 100%. There’s a good chance his snaps are limited and/or he serves as a decoy. Fitzgerald isn’t a recommended fantasy starter this week.

Patriots RB Jonas Gray showed up late to the facility on Friday and was sent home when he arrived. He reportedly overslept because his phone (and alarm) died. We can't know exactly how this will impact Gray's Week 12 role, but he was already a risky fantasy play against Detroit's stout run defense. New England also has a ready-made replacement in newly signed LeGarrette Blount.
