    NFL Player News - Week 13

    CIN - Cincinnati turns back to QB Andy Dalton

    Source: Bengals.com


    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was named the starting quarterback for Week 13 against the New York Jets.


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


    The Bengals turned to rookie Ryan Finley for three games and he did not perform well. The team gets a boost with Dalton back under center. Adjust all fantasy projections for guys like Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon accordingly. We'll see if A.J. Green comes back at some point this season too.

    PHI - QB Carson Wentz undergoes X-rays on his hand

    Source: ProFootballTalk.com - Josh Alper


    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (hand) is reportedly dealing with 'a little bruise' on his right hand after undergoing X-rays during the game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12.


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


    Wentz is considered day-to-day with this hand injury. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson noted after the game that Wentz would likely undergo further testing to confirm the diagnosis. We expect Wentz to play -- and play well -- against the Dolphins in Week 13.

    PIT - Devlin Hodges likely the starter

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges is likely to take over as the starting quarterback, according to sources.


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


    That would be the best move for the Steelers. Mason Rudolph has struggled as the starter and that's why he was benched against the Bengals. Over the last two games, Rudolph has tossed five interceptions. Hodges should be the starter as the Steelers host the Browns in Week 13.

    IND - TE Eric Ebron out for season

    Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankles) is headed for the Reserve/Injured list because he needs surgery on both of his ankles.


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


    Ebron had a breakout season in 2018 but he disappointed in 2019, finishing with 31 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns. Without him, the Colts move forward with Jack Doyle as their lead tight end. Mo Alie-Cox will get more work as a reserve tight end behind Doyle for the rest of the 2019 season.

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said he may need to undergo surgery on his shoulder if he is not careful with the injury.


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


    Conner's should has been a problem for some time and he aggravated it in Week 11 against the Browns. He didn't play in Week 12 and his status for Week 13 is up in the air. He said the ligaments in the shoulder need to be stronger.

    Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (ribs, lung) reportedly broke a rib and suffered a punctured lung in Week 12 versus the New York Jets. No timetable for his return to the field has been announced yet.


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


    Ribs injuries come down to pain tolerance. Renfrow might be able to play with this pain, but we'll have to wait and see what his practice status is like later in the week. The Raiders travel to play the Chiefs in Week 13.

    MIA - RB Kalen Ballage to start again in Week 13

    Miami Dolphins RB Kalen Ballage will remain the starting running back in Week 13 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Brian Flores.


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


    Ballage is not doing much as the starter. Nobody in the backfield really is (sorry Patrick Laird truthers), so counting on a Dolphins running back is a risky move for Fantasy GMs. The Dolphins fall behind every week and usually abandon the rushing attack by halftime. Ballage, as the team's starter, is only worth a deep flex play.

    SEA - RB Rashaad Penny ready to be relevant?

    Source: The Seattle Times - Adam Jude


    Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has apparently worked his way back into the good graces of head coach Pete Carroll, who told reporters Monday, Nov. 25, there is 'no reason not to get (Penny) back in there' after he ran for 129 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.'Chris (Carson) is a guy who is a big part of our team and we'll do everything we can (for him). ... Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away,' Carroll said.


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


    Penny could be quite fantasy relevant as the fantasy playoffs are about underway. He's out there on a lot of waiver wires so pick him up and stash him to see if this role behind Carson continues to produce fantasy points.

    DEN - No decision on QB Drew Lock

    Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) could be activated from the Reserve/Injured list this week, but the team has not made a final decision, according to head coach Vic Fangio.


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


    There's no need for the Broncos to continue forward with Brandon Allen. Lock has had two weeks of practice already and this week will make his third. We think they should give him these last five games of the 2019 season to see whether or not they need to select a quarterback with a premium pick in the 2020 NFL draft.

    ATL - RB Devonta Freeman listed as limited

    Source: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - D. Orlando Ledbetter


    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) was limited in work Monday, Nov. 25. The Falcons did not hold an official
    practice Monday, so this is an estimation.


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


    It's a short week for the Falcons since they play on Thursday night against the Saints, but it's not a short week for Freeman since he's been out the last two weeks. It would be a bit of a surprise if Freeman is back in Week 13. We'll see what he can do on Wednesday, but the team could continue to roll with a RBBC featuring Brian Hill and rookie Qadree Ollison.

    Atlanta Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) did not work with the team Monday, Nov. 25. The Falcons did not hold an official practice Monday, so this is an estimation.


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


    Hooper's knee injury was supposed to sideline him through the month of November. It would be a surprise if he was out there on Thanksgiving night against the Saints. We think a Week 14 return for Hooper is a better bet.

    Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (shoulder) was limited during work Monday, Nov. 25. The Falcons did not hold an official practice Monday, so this is an estimation.


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


    The Lions are playing their traditional game on Thanksgiving, this time against the Bears. If Hockenson can't play or is limited on Thursday, then we'll see more Logan Thomas.

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


    We doubt Stafford returns this season. The Lions have Jeff Driskel as their starter but he's a little bit banged up with a hamstring injury. On Thanksgiving, the Lions are at home to play the Bears.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) will not be available to play in the team's Week 13 game.


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


    No need to rush him back with the way Jonathan Williams is playing. Williams has back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances and looks to continue that trend in Week 13. The Colts are at home in an important divisional game against the Titans on Sunday.

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) is not guaranteed to return to action in Week 13 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.


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


    Njoku has been designated to return already but he has yet to return to the field. When he does, Njoku could be another shot in the arm for an offense that seems to have found some swagger (again) late in the season. Stash Njoku on your bench if you have the roster space. He could perform like a TE1 in the fantasy playoffs.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) will be limited to individual drills early in the week as he continues to regain strength in the shoulder, according to head coach Doug Pederson.


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


    We'll see if the Eagles get Howard back in there or just continue to roll with Miles Sanders and Jay Ajayi. The Eagles travel to play the hapless Dolphins on Sunday, so there's no need to rush Howard back out there this week. We'll know more about his status later in the week.

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is expected to return to practice this week, according to comments made by head coach Dan Quinn on Monday, Nov. 25.


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


    The Falcons have not run the ball with much success with Freeman out. Brian Hill has struggled as the lead back and rookie Qadree Ollison has merely been a touchdown vulture when the team is close to pay dirt. With a short week, the Falcons are likely to give Freeman one more week of rest. Atlanta hosts New Orleans on Thanksgiving night in Week 13.

    Hodges came off the bench and led the Steelers to victory over the Bengals last week. He's a game-manager undrafted rookie from Samford who will get an opportunity to show what he can do.

    Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was unable to go at full speed Tuesday, Nov. 26, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who anticipates Lockett will feel much better with a long week of preparation and predicts that 'he's going to be flying' in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.


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


    This is a good sign for Lockett's availability in Week 13. Check back on his status later in the week and consider Lockett a low-range WR2 this week.

    Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) is still 'pretty sore,' according to comments made by head coach Matt Patricia on Tuesday, Nov. 26. However, Patricia suggested that Driskel would have practiced Tuesday if Detroit had scheduled more than just a walk-through.


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


    It's pretty telling when a guy can't participate in a walk-through. They might go to undrafted rookie David Blough if Driskel can't go on Thanksgiving against the Bears.

    Thursday Update

    TEN - TE Delanie Walker placed on IR

    Source: TitansOnline.com - Jim Wyatt


    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 27. The team also signed free-agent PK Ryan Santoso (Lions). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.


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


    That's a wrap for Walker's season, and what a disappointing one it was for the veteran tight end. Walker ends 2019 having played just seven games, snaring 21 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns. The aging player may have played his final snap for Tennessee as they move forward with Jonnu Smith as their lead tight end.

    Friday Update

    PHI - No practice for TE Zach Ertz

    Source: PhiladelphiaEagles.com


    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.


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


    Ertz's hamstring injury is a bit of a concern. Fantasy GMs can expect him to play as of Thursday but of course watch his practice status on Friday. Make other plans just in case Ertz can't go against the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Smith-Schuster is out of concussion protocol but his knee issue is probably going to sideline him this week. James Washington looks like the best Steelers receiver to play this weekend vs Cleveland.

    Conner could get back on the field this weekend, although his last return was short-lived. Benny Snell's Week 13 fantasy outlook hinges on Conner's availability, although you shouldn't drop Snell if Conner is active.

    This is bad news for Jacoby Brissett and the Colts offense as a whole. Jack Doyle might get a slight upgrade and the team will have to err on the side of getting Parris Campbell back on the field this week. Devin Funchess is no sure thing to get activated as the Colts are sinking on offense.

    Most Fantasy GMs have moved on from stashing Green on the bench just hoping he would be back at some point. The Bengals passing game gets a boost this week (even though they're still without Green) because of the return of starting quarterback Andy Dalton.

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) remained limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.


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


    A full practice on Friday would make us feel a whole lot better about Fuller's status in Week 13. When he's healthy, Fuller has the speed and upside that most don't have. However, he tends to be banged up way too often...making him a boom/bust flex play.

    Boyd like the rest of the Bengals offense had his tide lifted by the return of Andy Dalton. He'll be a solid PPR WR3/Flex against the Browns next week.

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught five passes for 60 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13. He was targeted eight times during the game.

    Westbrook's value got a bump when Gardner Minshew came in. He'll be a WR3/Flex next week against the Chargers no matter who is at quarterback.

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew went 16-for-27 for 147 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13 after replacing QB Nick Foles.


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


    We can't be sure if the Jaguars will play Minshew or Nick Foles next week, or who the head coach will be. It's better for the Jaguars fantasy options if Minshew plays.

    Dalton led the Bengals to their first win of the the season and another one could knock them out of the #1 spot of the draft. He'll get the Browns next week in a winnable game that might scare Bengals faithful.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

    Barber took advantage of a weak Jaguars run defense in the red zone but didn't have much success otherwise. The Chargers will get to attack the Jaguars on the ground next week and Barber will face Tampa.

    Anderson was the one bright spot for the Jets offense today in a disaster at Cincinnati. He's on track to be a high ceiling WR3/Flex against Miami next week.

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted seven times during the game.


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


    Shepard caught an early score to make for a decent line in what should have been a bigger day with Golden Tate out. He's just a what the heck flex if Tate is back next week against the Eagles, but the matchup is good.

    NYJ - QB Sam Darnold crashes back to Earth

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 28-of-48 passes for 239 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in a Week 13 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals.


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


    Darnold flopped just when fantasy teams were ready to trust him in a matchup that should have resulted in a big game. He has an even better matchup against Miami next week but will make anyone who relies on him in DFS or a playoff matchup very nervous.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington finished with four grabs for 111 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, including a long touchdown where he grabbed it off the lap of a defender while laying on their backs for the highlight-reel score.


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


    Washington is heating up and clearly has downfield chemistry with his new quarterback Devlin Hodges. Even if Juju Smith-Schuster returns next week, Washington will be worth a WR3/Flex look against Arizona.

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 83 yards on 19 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 32 yards during the game.


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


    Barkley got going as a runner to an extent but he still had little effect on the outcome of this game and fantasy matchups this week. He'll still be in lineups next week against the Eagles, but expectations will be low.

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges completed 14-of-21 passes for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns, improving to 2-0 as a starter.


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


    Hodges had some poor decisions in the second half that gave the Browns a chance, but he also made the throws to help the Steelers overcome an early deficit. He'll remain the starter next week against a Cardinals team in a tailspin.

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


    Lazard got free deep a few times and that was enough if he was in your lineup as a desperation play. He could be worth a look next week against Washington and his dynasty value is on the rise.

    Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. ended up with three receptions for 29 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Beckham got banged up at the end of the first half and was a non-factor. He's tough to bench in the fantasy playoffs against the Bengals next week, but his numbers to date don't make him a lineup lock.

    Rodgers is used to playing in the snow and took apart a vulnerable Giants secondary. Carson Wentz gets the Giants next week and Rodgers should stay hot against Washington.

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (thumb, hand) completed 18-of-32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception with a lost fumble in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He suffered an apparent right thumb or hand injury at the end of the first half and returned after halftime wearing a glove on his throwing hand.


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


    Mayfield and Browns offense was thwarted by halftime adjustments made by Mike Tomlin to the defense. He'll face a Bengals defense that came alive against the Jets today and is only a low-end QB2/Superflex.

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles was benched during the Week 13 game and has been replaced by QB Gardner Minshew.


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


    Foles was terrible early, giving up the ball three times to Tampa Bay. He hasn't looked good since he returned. The Jaguars committed a lot of guaranteed money to him but he's their second best quarterback. We'll see who starts against the Chargers next week, but you should hope for Minshew if you rely on any Jaguars in your lineup.
