Jeffery limited Tuesday

Draft Sharks - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 12:08

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (groin, shoulder) put in a limited practice on Tuesday.  It's good news after he was sidelined last Thursday and Friday, but his status for Chicago's Thanksgiving night game against the Packers remains uncertain.  We'll have another update tomorrow.

Eagles haven't yet named Thanksgiving QB

Fantasy Football Today - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 10:38

Mark Sanchez: "I know as much as you guys"

Tim McManus on Twitter: "Sanchez says he hasn't been told whether he'll start. 'I know as much as you guys.'" (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The QB position has been an unmitigated disaster for the Eagles this season, and while there have been some successes in Chip Kelly's system, the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. Mark Sanchez is probably the better bet for consistent production, since Sam Bradford is dealing with a bum shoulder and just got cleared from the concussion protocol. Whomever starts isn't more than a QB2 with some underwhelming upside.

Manziel might be benched

Draft Sharks - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 09:30

Video surfaced over Cleveland's bye week of QB Johnny Manziel partying at a Texas nightclub.  No big deal for most guys.  But Manziel spent 10 weeks in rehab this offseason.  HC Mike Pettine confirmed Tuesday that he's seen the video.  "Still in the process of gathering info," he added. "Will get all parties involved this afternoon. It's disappointing. Very. When it's a repeated pattern of behavior, it's a concern."  After listening to Pettine, insider Mary Kay Cabot believes he's "obviously" considering benching Manziel.  We'll continue to track the situation.  QB Josh McCown (ribs) has been medically cleared and will start Monday night's game against the Ravens if Manziel does not.

Johnson expected back

Draft Sharks - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 07:09

The Panthers expect to activate DE Charles Johnson from short-term IR Tuesday and have him available for Thursday's game at Dallas. The team's top pass rusher has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 3. "I’m coming in humble," Johnson said, according to the team website. "We have a lot of talent on our D-line and I’m just trying to be another piece of that. I’m not coming in with the attitude to try and go crazy. I’m going to work my way back into it, work my way back to where I want to be. Whatever my role is I am going to max it out." We can't expect a full workload right away, which obviously limits the upside for Johnson as a Week 12 IDP option. We'll keep an eye on his snap counts, though, and see if he can return to full-time use down the stretch. Carolina's position strongly atop the NFC in the playoff race might make it easier for the team to ease him back and have him fresh for the postseason -- which would be bad news for his IDP value. His return in any capacity can only help the Panthers' team D, though.

Taylor hurts shoulder

Draft Sharks - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 05:37

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor appeared to injure his right (throwing) shoulder late in Monday night's loss to the Patriots.  He remained in the game but was clearly bothered.  "I have no idea," HC Rex Ryan said when asked about Taylor's Week 12 availability.  "I hope he's ready."  We'll update Taylor's status when we learn more.  QB E.J. Manuel would start if Taylor isn't ready for Sunday's game in Kansas City.

Amendola injures knee

Draft Sharks - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 05:34

Patriots WR Danny Amendola injured his knee in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Bills.  He spent the rest of the night on the sidelines.  “When I saw him, it looked like he was in good spirits,” LaFell said after the win. “I hope it’s nothing major. We’re going to need him soon.”  We'll look for updates on Amendola's status.  He racked up 9 catches on 12 targets for 117 yards before exiting.  New England also lost WR Aaron Dobson to an ankle injury.

Sanders dealing with high-ankle sprain

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 20:03

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders revealed Monday that he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain.  He suffered the injury early in Week 9 against the Colts.  He returned to that one but went catch-less the following week before exiting in the 3rd quarter.  Sanders was held out of last weekend's game against the Bears but is hoping to return for this Sunday night's showdown with the Patriots.  "Today was the first day I got up and didn't limp out of bed," Sanders said.  He'll still be just 3 weeks removed from the injury on Sunday.  High-ankle sprains typically take 4+ weeks to fully heal.  We'll track Sanders' status throughout the week.

Amukamara 'ready to go'

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 18:29

Giants CB Prince Amukamara returned to the practice field Monday after missing 5 games with a pectoral tear. "I feel like I'm ready to play four quarters of a football game," he said afterward, according to "I feel 100 percent. I'm ready to go." The nature of the injury should mean that Amukamara was able to stay up on his conditioning while he was out, and he still carries a top-5 scoring average among fantasy DBs for the season -- depending on your format. The Sunday matchup with Washington presents significant upside and makes Amukamara an instant IDP starter upon his return.

Adams might return for Week 12

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 18:24

Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Monday that he hopes to get S Mike Adams (ankle) back on the practice field Wednesday or Thursday. Adams missed Sunday's win at Atlanta after hurting his ankle in the Week 8 win over Denver. Rookie Clayton Geathers got his 1st start in Adams' place against the Falcons and tallied 9 tackles (7 solo). He'd carry upside again if he starts for Adams against the Bucs this Sunday.

Updates on Davis, Castonzo

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 18:11

The Colts on Monday labeled CB Vontae Davis day-to-day with the hamstring injury that knocked him out early in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Falcons. We'll see if he gets back to practice this week. If he's our or even limited this week, that would be good news for Bucs top WR Mike Evans. Indy appears likely to miss LT Anthony Castonzo for the matchup with Tampa Bay. HC Chuck Pagano called him week-to-week with an MCL sprain. That would be a significant loss for an already struggling offense with an already-shaky O-line.

Revis dealing with concussion

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 18:02

Jets HC Todd Bowles said CB Darrelle Revis "wasn't feeling any better" Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a concussion, according to Bowles added that he generally feels "pessimistic" for a player's chances of returning for the following game after suffering a concussion. We'll see how Revis progresses through the league protocol this week. It'll be tough to project his specific impact on Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins, however, as Miami sports no true #1 outside WR.

Peterson day to day

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 17:54

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson left Sunday night's game with an ankle sprain. HC Bruce Arians told the Arizona Republic on Monday that his top corner is day to day, and Peterson tweeted out, "You guys know I'll be good to go." His status may not really matter for this week's matchup with the Niners, who don't have much of anything going on offense -- or defense, for that matter.

Baldwin has "minor" ankle injury

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 17:15

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that WR Doug Baldwin suffered a "minor" ankle injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers.  Carroll is "optimistic" that Baldwin will be available for this weekend's game against the Steelers.  He's caught 13 balls for 194 yards and a score over his past 2 games.  If the ankle injury isn't serious, Baldwin will be on the WR3 radar for Week 12.

Lynch unlikely for Week 12 versus Steelers

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 16:00

Status unknown until after visit with specialist on Tuesday

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll not expecting Marshawn Lynch to be available Sunday vs Steelers. Again, won't know more until meets with specialist tomorrow. (710 ESPN)

FF Today's Take: There has been speculation that Lynch is dealing with a sports hernia that could sideline him for the rest of the regular season. Thomas Rawls has mostly thrived whenever Lynch has been sidelined this season and is coming off a 33-touch, 255-yard, two-touchdown demolition of the 49ers. The undrafted rookie free agent would face a tougher challenge if he gets the start this week against the Steelers, but should be considered a RB1 if that happens.

Flacco, Forsett to miss the rest of the season

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 13:10

Matt Schaub, Buck Allen to move up the depth chart

Joe Flacco will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL and possibly a torn MCL, coach John Harbaugh announced after the Ravens' win over the Rams. The team also lost Pro Bowl running back Justin Forsett for the rest of the season due to a broken arm. Forsett, Flacco, No. 1 receiver Steve Smith, defensive captain Terrell Suggs, speedy first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman and center Jeremy Zuttah have all been injured for the Ravens. (

FF Today's Take: The Ravens should be an obvious offense to target each week for fantasy defense streamers. (The Browns, Dolphins and Seahawks are next on the schedule.) Matt Schaub, who has a 10:16 TD-to-INT ratio over the last two years, has been mostly terrible over that time and will not have elite receiver at his disposal to make him look better. Javorius Allen should see as many touches as he can handle moving forward, making him a reasonable fantasy RB2 or quality flex option.

Forte "on track" to return for Week 12

Fantasy Football Today - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 13:00

Participated in an extensive pregame warmup on Sunday

Reserve RB Ka'Deem Carey suffered a concussion in the Bears' loss to the Broncos, which further highlights the need for Matt Forte (knee) to return for Thursday night's game at Green Bay. Forte participated in an extensive pregame warmup on Sunday, and barring an unforeseen setback, appears on track to play against the Packers. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Foret hasn't played since spraining his MCL in Week 8, which allowed Jeremy Langford to show he was a more-than-capable backup. The rookie's emergence probably means Forte won't see as many touches as he did prior to the injury, but there doesn't appear to be much threat of a committee here either. Owners should expect Forte to remain a fantasy RB1 for the rest of the season, albeit with a slightly lower workload than before.

Hoyer will start Week 12

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 12:39

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will be back under center for Week 12.  That presumably means he's passed through the concussion protocol.  Hoyer will return for a dream matchup against the Saints' league-worst pass defense.  It puts him squarely on the spot-start radar.

Morris "day-to-day"

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 12:35

Redskins HC Jay Gruden labeled RB Alfred Morris "day-to-day" with the rib injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.  He didn't return to that one, but it sounds like he has a decent chance to be ready for this weekend's game against the Giants.  Morris' presence would just make this muddled backfield even tougher to trust in fantasy.

Freeman "off to a good start" in concussion protocol

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 12:08

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that RB Devonta Freeman is "off to a good start" in the concussion protocol.  It sounds like he might have already passed through a stage or 2.  We'll continue to track Freeman's progress this coming week.   Tevin Coleman will serve as Atlanta's feature back against the Vikings if Freeman isn't cleared by Sunday.

Osweiler will start Week 12

Draft Sharks - Mon, 11/23/2015 - 11:09

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will start Sunday night's game against the Patriots, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.  Osweiler was efficient in his 1st career start yesterday, completing 20 of 27 passes for 250 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs.  His 127.1 QB Rating was better than any mark QB Peyton Manning posted this season.  We suspect that Denver will continue riding with Osweiler as long as he plays like he did against the Bears.  He'll face a much tougher test vs. Bill Belichick's defense in Week 12, though.
