    NFL Player News - Week 11

    NE - TE Rob Gronkowski deadline looming

    Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport


    Former New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has until Nov. 30 to inform the NFL if he plans to return this season.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Fantasy GMs and Patriots fans have their fingers crossed here. It seems like a long-shot as Gronkowski has now moved on to be a TV analyst. When he retired, Patriots owner Bob Kraft did tell him that he wanted Gronkowski back for the team's playoff run. Gronkowski seems very much retired, but a call from Tom Brady might change his mind. It probably won't happen, but a TE-desperate Fantasy GM can dream, right?

    CIN - WR A.J. Green to test out ankle Wednesday

    Source: ESPN - Ben Baby


    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is 'day-to-day' and will see if he can run on his injured ankle without experiencing swelling on Wednesday, Nov. 13, according to head coach Zac Taylor.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Green was supposed to be back last week but was unable to play. We're excited to see him return to the field...eventually...but we won't get too excited until it seems more likely Green is actually going to get back out there. We'll know more about his status later in the week.

    CLE - RB Kareem Hunt to remain heavily involved

    Source: Akron Beacon Journal - Nate Ulrich


    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will 'continue to get opportunities,' and head coach Freddie Kitchens expects Hunt's role to continue growing after playing well in Week 10.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Hunt played 38 snaps in Week 10 and he got 11 touches (4 carries, 7 receptions) in his first game with the Browns. That's something we should see continue going forward. Hunt has plenty of flex appeal for Fantasy GMs with this role.

    Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins has been named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, according to interim head coach Bill Callahan.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    That's the only move that makes sense for Washington. Haskins is rough around the edges as a quarterback but he needs time and experience starting in the NFL if he's going to be their franchise quarterback.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) is tentatively expected to return from a two-game absence and play in Week 11 versus the Cleveland Browns, according to comments made by head coach Mike Tomlin on Monday, Nov. 11.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    The Steelers rushing attack is better when Conner is on the field. When he's back, the Steelers won't have to rely as much on Jaylen Samuels as a ball-carrier. We'll see what Conner's practice status is like this week.

    ATL - TE Austin Hooper to miss time

    Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport


    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) will have an MRI on his knee Monday, Nov. 11, and he's expected to miss time. The MRI will determine how much he'll miss.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Bad news for Fantasy GMs here. Hooper has scored more fantasy points at the tight end position this year than anybody else in the league. He's obviously a big part of what the Falcons do through the air. Luke Stocker is next in line behind Hooper, but he's mostly known as a blocker. In crazy deep dynasty formats, we're watching 2018 UDFA Jaeden Graham who might get an opportunity with Hooper down. Graham was a star at Yale, and he's certainly got more of a pass-catching/athletic profile than Stocker.

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) will have an MRI Monday, Nov. 11, to determine the severity of his foot sprain.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    All Fantasy GMs need to make Brian Hill a priority on the waiver wire this week. Hill is a good runner but he's also a reliable receiver out of the backfield. His all-purpose skill set means he doesn't need to come off the field that much if at all. Rookie Qadree Ollison is a big back who could get some playing time as well if Freeman has to miss time.

    Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) likely will be the starting quarterback for the Week 11 game if he is able to be a full participant during practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, according to head coach Frank Reich.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    It was bad enough for Colts fans on Sunday that they were chanting for Chad Kelly. Brissett was close to returning last week, but the team chose to go with Brian Hoyer against the Dolphins in Week 10. It sounds like Brissett should be back this week.

    HOU - Jordan Thomas designed to return

    Houston Texans TE Jordan M. Thomas (ribs) has been designated as one of the players to return from the Reserve/Injured list this season.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Fantasy GMs need to be dialed in here. Thomas is a huge target who could dominate in the red zone due to his size and strength combination. The Texans passing game is one to collect pieces of, and Thomas could be their top tight end when he's out there. Monitor his progress in practice and add him if you need TE help in deeper leagues.

    CLE - WR Antonio Callaway expected back

    Source: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot


    Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway's benching was only for the Week 10 game, and he will return to the lineup for Week 11, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Callaway is the No. 3 receiver for the Browns when he's not a healthy scratch. His return means Rashard Higgins would have fewer snaps and less of an impact. We'll see if Callaway and Kitchens worked out whatever went on between the two that caused the young receiver to be deemed inactive in Week 10.

    Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) is expected to return to practice at some point this week after spending his entire rookie season up to this point on the Reserve/Injured list.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Lock hasn't been seen on the field since injuring his thumb in mid-August. He could be the quarterback of the future, but the Broncos aren't going to put him in there as the starter if he's not ready. Lock has to show 'he belongs' with 'quality quarterback play' according to Broncos head coach Vic Fangio. The Broncos now have 21 days to decide whether or not to activate Lock from the Injured Reserve list or shut him down for the entirety of his rookie season.

    New York Jets TE Chris Herndon (ribs) is expected to miss 'an extended amount of time' with a fractured rib, according to head coach Adam Gase.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Fantasy GMs have moved on long ago. Herndon returned from his six-game suspension and promptly injured his hamstring. That kept him out even longer but Herndon did get back to action in Week 10, catching one pass for seven yards. Now, he's dealing with a somewhat serious rib injury. The Jets will use Ryan Griffin as their starting tight end.

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) was spotted running on the field Monday, Nov. 11, and anticipates returning to action against the Jacksonville Jaguars following the team's bye week.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Walker has been dealing with this ankle injury for a few weeks. The Titans have Jonnu Smith starting in his place, and Smith plays like a younger version of Walker. We'll see if the seasoned veteran is ready to return after their bye.

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 11.

    Carroll initially said Lockett was dealing with a "pretty severe situation" as he was hospitalized with this injury. But things appear to be better now.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Emmanuel Sanders was banged up with a ribs injury on Monday night and it didn't matter for Pettis. He was targeted three times but he was held without a catch. The 49ers gave Kendrick Bourne a larger opportunity than Pettis.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    We'll see if Kittle can get in a full practice later in the week. The offense may be without WR Emmanuel Sanders as he deals with a ribs injury. Getting Kittle back would be a great benefit.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    The 49ers are deep and talented at the running back position, so they could give Breida some time off or limit him to get this injury right for the postseason run. We'd see more of Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson if Breida has to miss time.

    That's what made Brian Hill the top waiver wire addition of the week. Freeman may miss a couple of games with this foot injury. Hill is a good all-around back who doesn't need to come off the field. We like him as a low-end RB2 or flex play against the Panthers in Week 11.

    It's a low-grade sprain so that's a positive for the 49ers and Breida. The 49ers have a deep and talented backfield so they don't need to rush him back out there. We'll see more Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson (in addition to Tevin Coleman) with Breida out.

    Jeffery did not practice on Wednesday which is a bit of a concern since he had the bye in Week 10 to help get healthy. The Eagles have a banged up WR corps and need to get Jeffery right so he can get out there.

    CLE - TE David Njoku eyeing return

    Source: ESPN - Jake Trotter


    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) said he is 'very' optimistic that he'll be healthy enough to play when he's eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list in Week 12.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Getting Njoku would be a boost for the Browns offense. He chose not to undergo wrist surgery earlier this year so he could get back sooner. It sounds like Njoku will start practicing in the near future.

    This was expected as Thielen deals with his 'minor' hamstring injury that seems to be more problematic than 'minor' would indicate.

    Montgomery didn't practice today and is questionable at best for Sunday night.

    Saturday Update

    ARI - Arizona opting for committee approach at RB

    Source: ESPN.com - Josh Weinfuss


    Arizona Cardinals RBs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson will be used in a committee in Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who noted to reporters Friday, Nov. 15, that being named a starter at running back in his offense doesn't matter because of sub-packages.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Drake is the better play with a good performance against the 49ers two weeks ago already under his belt and Johnson looking tentative and slow last week, but neither is a strong play if both are going to be used.

    kittle looks like he will be out a while himself. the clip the other night on TV showed him celebrating up in the booth (after a TD). if you watch closely you see he struggles to stand up and has to assist himself in being upright. i have a bad feeling about him for the rest of the season.

    Start Mahomes as you normally would. He was back last week, and while the Chiefs didn't win against the Titans it was not due to Mahomes. We'll be starting him in plenty of leagues once again in Week 11 as the Chiefs play the Chargers on Monday night in Mexico City.

    KC - RB Damien Williams officially questionable

    Source: Chiefs.com


    Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (non-injury) did not participate in practice Saturday, Nov. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    We'll see if Williams is going to play on Monday night or not. Fantasy GMs need to have other options at the ready since the Chiefs vs the Chargers is the last game of Week 11. We could see more Darrell Williams and LeSean McCoy if Damien Williams misses this contest. It's worth noting beat writer Adam Teicher said Williams would play but then later walked back to saying "Williams is listed as questionable to play on Monday night on the week's final injury report, so there is some doubt about his availability."

    MIA - WR Allen Hurns signs extension

    Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter


    Miami Dolphins WR Allen Hurns signed a two-year contract extension with the Dolphins Saturday, Nov. 16, worth $8 million, according to a source. The deal includes $3.27 million in guaranteed money.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    In eight games this year, Hurns has 13 catches for 170 yards and one touchdown. The Dolphins liked him enough to get him an extension and we will continue to see Hurns worked in as the No. 3 wide receiver (he can line up outside or in the slot) with DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson as the top two targets at the wide receiver position.

    Los Angeles Rams RB John Kelly was waived Saturday, Nov. 16.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Kelly was a sixth-round pick of the Rams in the 2018 NFL draft. He followed up Alvin Kamara at the University of Tennessee and was a player Fantasy GMs were monitoring in deep dynasty formats. He might land back on the practice squad as the team made room for WR Nsimba Webster on the active roster on Saturday, thus opening up a practice squad spot.

    Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin/calf) on Saturday, Nov. 16, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Burton was the No. 6 fantasy tight end last year in his first season with the Bears. In 2019, Burton has mostly been a non-factor in the offense and finishes with just 14 catches for 84 yards. The Bears move forward with Adam Shaheen and Ben Braunecker at the position.

    HOU - WR Will Fuller to miss Week 11

    Source: ProFootballTalk.com


    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) on Saturday, Nov. 16, was downgraded to out for Week 11 with a hamstring injury.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Fuller is trying to come back from this hamstring injury, but the Texans are being cautious with him. He's super fast and can be a big playmaker for the offense when healthy, but Fuller struggles to stay healthy. Without him, we'll see Kenny Stills get more looks behind superstar DeAndre Hopkins in the Texans passing attach.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Johnson should be the lead ball-carrier for the Lions as they play the Cowboys in Week 11. In this tough matchup, and with his lack of production so far as the starter, Johnson is just a deep flex play for Fantasy GMs. J.D. McKissic will get work as the team's pass-catching back.

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) sustained a concussion in Week 11's game following a hit from Cleveland Browns S Damarious Randall, according to a source.


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    It was disturbing watching Johnson after that hit. Johnson was bleeding from the ear as he left the game and has been placed in concussion protocol. He will be monitored closely before the team's next game against the Cincinnati Bengals Nov. 24.

    AJ Green will sit out this season, ask for a trade and he will go to a contender next season.

    Monday Update

    NE - Rob Gronkowski To Make "Big Announcement" Tuesday Morning

    Source: Dov Kleiman


    Dov Kleiman posted on Twitter Sunday: "Former #Patriots TE @RobGronkowski: "I have a big announcement to make. I can't wait to drop it on all of you." "Gronk said the announcement will be Tuesday at 9:00 AM. "Gronkowski must let the Pats know by Saturday, Nov. 30 if he wants to return. Could this be related?"


    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Let's be clear: We do NOT know what this announcement is about. It's very likely some sort of promotion for a company Gronkowski is involved with or something about professional wrestling or the like. BUT, the "Gronkowski back to the Patriots" talk will not die. And this COULD be an announcement related to the NFL. If Gronkowski is available in your league and you have the roster room to spare, it might well be worth a Waiver Wire flier just to see how this goes.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]


    Mack was ruled out somewhat quickly, so this could be a multi-week injury. Jordan Wilkins is the between the tackles backup, but he missed this week with an ankle injury. Jonathan Williams was excellent in Mack's place and should be the favorite to lead the backfield in touches at Houston next week with Nyheim Hines getting into flex consideration.

    Tate had established himself as a starter and one of the most formidable young receivers in the league at the catch point. Stanley Morgan Jr could get more work if he misses extended time.

    Allen is going to make it easy for the Panthers to decide to keep Cam Newton at this rate. He was terrible, missing easy throws and making questionable decisions all day. He's still supporting DJ Moore's value, but he's another potential disaster in the making at the Superdome next week.

    Watson was frustrated by a burgeoning Ravens pass rush and very strong play in the secondary. One long score on a fourth down was incomplete because of pass interference that wasn't called or reversed on review and it was all downhill from there. He'll look for redemption against the Colts next week after often holding the ball too long in this one.
