Both miss practice on Friday
Running back Darren McFadden was still working with the training staff Friday as the Raiders began practice, an indication he won't play against the Tennessee Titans. Also not practicing for the Raiders on Friday were wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder) and Tyvon Branch (ankle). (Inside Bay Area)
FF Today's Take: It will be another week of Rashad Jennings at the running back spot and the loss of Moore, means Rod Streater will be the best option in the Raiders passing attack. Streater is a desperate play however against a Titans defense has given up the fewest fantasy points in the league to wide receivers.

Limited on Friday
Another one of Peyton Manning's favorite targets this year, tight end Julius Thomas, was listed by the team as limited during Friday's practice and is questionable for the game this weekend. (Cover32)
FF Today's Take: This will be a tough one for fantasy owners as it's unclear if Thomas will play on Sunday night and if he does play, he may be limited. Thomas was limited in practice both Thursday and Friday.

Probable for Sunday night

FF Today's Take: As expected, Welker will be ready to face his former team on Sunday night. He participated in practice on Thursday and Friday and should be in fantasy lineups as normal.

Suffered concussion in Week 11
Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was held out of practice on Thursday. Reed sustained a concussion in Week 11 versus the Philadelphia Eagles and was subsequently held out for the rest of the game. He will need to pass the NFL's concussion protocol before suiting up again. Because of the Monday night game time versus the San Francisco 49ers, Thursday marked the Redskins' first practice of the week, which allows plenty of time for Reed to get clearance. However, there is no guarantee of that happening. (WSOC-TV)
FF Today's Take: With Washington playing on Monday night, owners would be wise to have another option in place for Reed. So unless there is a definitive report before Sunday that suggests he will suit up, it is probably best to assume he will not. Two solid fantasy options for this week that are likely readily available in leagues are Tennessee's Delanie Walker and Houston's Garrett Graham.

Return to field remains unknown
Michael Crabtree will be added to the 49ers' 53-man roster within the next six days. It's even possible Crabtree could be on the roster prior to the 49ers' game Monday night at Washington, but that does not mean he will suit up for the game. After one week of practices leading up to the 49ers' game against the Carolina Panthers, the organization decided to back off on Crabtree's participation a week ago. The 49ers expect Crabtree to play this season and, perhaps, return to his No. 1-wideout form for the playoffs. (CSN Bay Area)
FF Today's Take: Fantasy owners are at the same place with Crabtree now as they were at the beginning of the season - wait-and-see mode. It is highly doubtful he can flash the form that made him a 2012 fantasy stud at any point this season. As such, owners will be hard-pressed to get anything more than low-end WR3 production from him if/when he returns before the NFL Playoffs.

Minnix ranks the NFL running backs (beyond the handful of set-it-and-forget studs) and tandem attackers for the fantasy postseason. Warning: highly subjective.

Receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), safety Louis Delmas (knee) and running back Joique Bell (Achilles) also returned to practice today, after sitting out Wednesday. Bell suffered his injury in Sunday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Detroit Free Press)
FF Today's Take: The exact diagnosis of Bell's foot issue isn't known but it appears he should be fine to backup Reggie Bush this Sunday against the Bucs.

Pryor could be be the backup on Sunday
The promising start of rookie quarterback Matt McGloin will continue when he starts against the Tennessee Titans. McGloin was named the starter by Allen, who said the health of Terrelle Pryor would be monitored to see if would be available to be the backup Sunday when the Raiders host the Titans at O.co Coliseum. (Inside Bay Area)
FF Today's Take: Pryor has been bothered by a knee injury the last couple weeks, giving McGloin the chance to show his credentials. He finished as a top ten QB in Week 11 but will have a more difficult test against the Titans in Week 12.

Hankerson placed on IR with torn LCL
Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, coach Mike Shanahan said. Shanahan said Josh Morgan will start in Hankerson's place. (Washington Post)
FF Today's Take: Morgan will be third in line for targets in the passing game behind Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed so his fantasy value will hover in the WR4/5 range.

Sproles listed as Questionable
Running back Darren Sproles (knee/ankle) and guard Jahri Evans (ankle) may be the two players most likely not to play Thursday as both players missed practice all week, including Wednesday. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)
FF Today's Take: Sproles injured his knee/ankle in last week's game and even he returned to action, he was obviously bothered by the injury. He will be a gametime decision for Thursday Night Football against the Falcons.

Ponder was pulled for Matt Cassel in Week 11
Three days after Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier pulled Christian Ponder from a game against the Seattle Seahawks, he announced Wednesday the quarterback will start the team's next game, against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take: Frazier touted Ponder's success(?) against the Packers as reason for him getting the start. Ponder has racked up a 50.7% completion percentage with 907 yards, 6 TDs, 5 INTs in five games against the Pack. He's a QB2 in Week 12.

"He's on a good track"
Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson wouldn't go as far as to say he's playing Sunday against Tampa Bay, but he sounded fairly optimistic Tuesday about his chances. For Burleson not to play Sunday, there would have to be a "major setback," he said. Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Monday there is a possibility of Burleson returning and that "he's on a good track." (Detroit News)
FF Today's Take: Burleson still needs to be cleared by doctors but should be back on the field this week, starting opposite Calvin Johnson. "If I'm going to play on Sunday, I want to be in the game plan," he said. "I don't want to be limited. I've got to do my part this week, and show that I can uphold, withstand the physical play of the game and go out there and make some plays on Sunday."
