Fantasy Impact: With Drake likely out for the rest of the game with a knee injury, Josh Jacobs should see almost all of the work. Jalen Richard was placed on COVID reserve this week and with Drake likely out, Peyton Barber is likely the next man up.


According to Adam Schefter, Vikings WR Adam Thielen suffered a sprained ankle on Sunday against the Lions. (Source: Adam Schefter)

Fantasy Impact: After exiting in the second quarter, Thielen was ruled out for the entire game. Head coach Mike Zimmer offered an update on the veteran WR saying that he suffered a sprained ankle. The severity or timing for the injury is unknown but it isn't out of the question for him to play next weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Homer is active, joining Adrian Peterson, DeeJay Dallas, and Rashaad Penny in the Seahawks’ backfield. None of them are worth starting in fantasy this week.

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks’ backfield is sloppy with Adrian Peterson and DeeJay Dallas leading the pack. Penny and Travis Homer (calf) are also active while Alex Collins (abdomen) will sit out. None of Seattle's active backs are worth starting in fantasy this week.

Fantasy Impact: Although Collins had been a starter over the last few weeks, he struggled drastically, averaging a mere 34 yards per carry since Week 7. During this span, he had zero touchdowns and one lost fumble. The expectation was that Collins would lose work to Peterson if he was even active. Instead, the 27-year-old will sit out this contest. Seattle will roll with Peterson, DeeJay Dallas, Rashaad Penny, and Travis Homer on Sunday.


Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf) is active for Sunday’s game against Washington. He had been listed as questionable. (Source: Las Vegas Raiders on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Through three games with the Raiders, Jackson has caught four passes for 140 yards and a touchdown, though the majority of his volume came against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Jackson's big-play upside makes him a worthy FLEX play in deeper leagues this week, but fantasy managers should opt for a safer option if possible.


Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is active for Sunday’s game against Washington. He had been listed as questionable with an ankle injury. (Source: Las Vegas Raiders on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jacobs’ presence for Week 13 comes as no surprise. The 23-year-old has posted 618 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns through nine games this season, putting him in mid-range RB2 territory. Fantasy managers should start Jacobs in most leagues.


Washington Football Team wide receiver Curtis Samuel is active for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He had been listed as questionable with a groin injury. (Source: Matthew Paras on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Samuel’s injury continues to heal, he’s still not on the fantasy radar. The 25-year-old caught just one pass for nine yards on a 24 percent snap share week.


Washington Football Team tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, who was listed as questionable with a hip injury, is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. (Source: Matthew Paras on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Seals-Jones traveled to Las Vegas but will now be held out of action for his third consecutive game. John Bates and Sammis Reyes will fill depth roles behind Logan Thomas.


Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is active for Sunday’s game despite being listed as questionable with a hip injury. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In addition to being active, Beckham is expected to have a full workload, gets a favorable matchup, and benefits from the fact that Darrell Henderson is far from 100 percent. Fantasy managers should view the 29-year-old wideout as a mid-to-high WR3 option on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The 24-year-old was listed as questionable with a thigh injury. Although he’s active, reports indicate that Henderson won’t be the feature back. This suggests that Sony Michel will see an increased role and could even start, especially if Henderson is only available in emergency situations. Fantasy managers should not start Henderson this week.


Jaguars running back James Robinson is active for Sunday’s game agains the Rams. He had been listed as questionable with heel and knee injuries. (Source: Jaguars PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson has been battling the lingering injuries for several weeks, but he’s able to suit up for Week 13 and reportedly feels much better as of late. Robinson has no legitimate competition in the Jaguars' backfield, so fantasy managers can trust him as a high-end RB2.


Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (quad) is officially inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He had been listed as doubtful. (Source: Dan Solomone on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Giants continue to limp throughout the final stretch of the season as Shepard, Kadarius Toney (oblique, quad), and Daniel Jones (neck) are all inactive for Sunday’s game. It’s hard to completely trust anyone on this team in fantasy football, but Saquon Barkley remains in the RB2 conversation while Kenny Golladay is a low-end WR3.


Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Texans. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Doyle hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown against the Bucs last weekend, but it's unlikely that the Colts will need to throw as much against the Texans. Doyle is a TE2 in Week 13.


Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (oblique, quad) is officially inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He had been listed as doubtful. (Source: Dan Solomone on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Giants continue to limp throughout the final stretch of the season as Toney, Sterling Shepard (quad), and Daniel Jones (neck) are all inactive for Sunday’s game. It’s hard to completely trust anyone on this team in fantasy football, but Saquon Barkley remains in the RB2 conversation while Kenny Golladay is a low-end WR3.


Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks (illness) is officially active and will play in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Cooks returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a non-COVID-19 illness. He is active and will be in his usual role as the Texans WR1. The 28-year-old has caught 62 passes for 704 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games in 2021. Cooks owns 28.2% of the team targets and is a solid fantasy WR2 against the Colts. The former first-round pick is 23rd among all wideouts in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.


Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He had been listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson hasn’t played since prior to the Bears’ Week 10 bye. Through nine contests, he caught just 30 passes for 339 yards and a touchdown. With both Robinson and Marquise Goodwin out, Darnell Mooney will continue to rank as a low-end WR2. Cole Kmet also figures to get involved after catching 15 passes over his last three games. Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant Sr. are candidates to fill the Nos. 2 and 3 wideout roles behind Mooney. They’ll all be catching passes from Andy Dalton since Justin Fields (ribs) has been ruled out.

Fantasy Impact: Fields will now miss his second consecutive game, putting Andy Dalton in position to start yet again. While the veteran won’t have Allen Robinson (hamstring) at his disposal, David Montgomery, Darnell Mooney, and Cole Kmet have all looked strong as of late. Dalton is a low-end QB2 and can be started in two-quarterback leagues.


New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis (groin) is officially active and will play in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Davis was a game-time decision heading into Sunday’s game after being limited in practice during the week. He is active and will suit up against the Colts in Week 13. The 26-year-old could be on a snap count and have a part-time role in Sunday’s game. Davis, Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder, and Denzel Mims will be Jets QB Zach Wilson’s top wideouts. The former Tennessee Titan is 75th among all wideouts in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
