Eagles running back Jordan Howard was limited in practice for a second straight day on Thursday as he continues to deal with a shoulder injury. (Source: PhiladelphiaEagles.com)

Fantasy Impact: Howard saw 20 touches in the team's Week 9 win over the Bears and then had a bye week to recover, so it is at least somewhat concerning that he is still limited in practice. Still, it's possible that the Eagles are just being conservative with the veteran running back ahead of a game that could see them lean heavily on the running game. Look for an update on his status on Friday when the team releases its official injury designations.

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden is officially active for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football despite being questionable with an illness. (Source: Brooke Pryor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Haden was unable to practice on Wednesday due to an illness, but many expected him to be able to suit up against his former team on Thursday. He intercepted his first pass of the season against the Rams last week and will look to contain a Browns passing attack that has talent has underachieved this season.

Browns tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football. (Source: Nate Ulrich on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Seals-Jones missed Week 10 against Buffalo and has just nine receptions for 155 yards and two touchdowns on the season, so he should be avoided everywhere but in the deepest formats.

Olivier Vernon is officially inactive for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football due to a lingering knee injury. (Source: Cleveland Browns on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vernon will now miss his second straight game, which is not surprising given the short turnaround. He will now have extra rest before attempting to return for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Dolphins.

Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway is appealing a 10-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Impact: Callaway was waived by the Browns on Thursday with the team citing that he had "too many issues." It was later learned that he tested positive for a banned substance over the summer. His appeal was heard by the NFL on Friday and he is awaiting final word from the league. Callaway has had a multitude of drug-related issues since leaving college, including a positive test at the NFL combine and a four-game suspension to begin the 2019 season.


Alshon Jeffery missed practice on Thursday and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. (Source: Zack Rosenblatt on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: If Jeffery were to miss Sunday’s game, Carson Wentz’s value takes a big hit and should be sat in most leagues. On the flip side, Dallas Goedert and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside would present respectable desperation plays in deeper leagues.

David Montgomery rolled his ankle in practice on Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. (Source: Larry Mayer on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: If Tarik Cohen is available on waivers, now might be a decent time to go pick him up as a precaution. Montgomery has been featured a lot as of late so it would be a shame to lose him for any period of time. Cohen might be a decent option for owners that missed out on Brian Hill in this week's waivers. If Montgomery is out Sunday night, consider Cohen a flex play at best.

Redskins coach Bill Callahan says the team has a "pretty good rotational system" for Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Guice is returning this weekend versus the Jets after not playing since Week 1. It's tough to envision either running back getting enough touches to be a reliable fantasy asset in Week 11. A wait-and-see approach is probably best right now.


Le'Veon Bell (ribs) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice. (Source: Brain Costello on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's not a concern as both Bell and coach Adam Gase have said he'll be good to go for Sunday. Bell has a great matchup against the lowly Redskins, but his ceiling in fantasy is capped by the Jets' lackluster offense. Consider him a volume-based RB2 for this one.

Updating an earlier report, George Kittle (ankle) has not been ruled out yet for Sunday’s Week 11 contest against the 49ers, per Matt Barrows of the Athletic. 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to say “the team has to plan as if he won’t play.” (Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan told the media “we won’t have Kittle” in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Updating an original report, Shanahan has not ruled out the 49ers star tight end. He later clarified his words stating that the team has to plan as if he won’t play. Kittle is unlikely to play but has not been officially ruled out Week 11. Continue to monitor his status throughout the week, if he is ruled out, Ross Dwelley and Garrett Celek would lead the 49ers tight end corps Week 11.

Houston Texans star wide receiver Will Fuller made his return to the practice field on Wednesday, logging a limited session. (Source: Texans PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is Fuller's first sighting on the practice field since injuring his hamstring in Week 7. Fuller was averaging 12.5 targets per game in the two games prior to his injury, and is in a prime blow up spot in a high total contest against the Baltimore Ravens. If cleared, Fuller will slide back into his number two receiver role. He projects as a upside WR2 in what will likely turn into a shootout against the Ravens.

Indianapolis Colts star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton missed practice on Wednesday. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Missing Wednesday's practice after being an early rule out for Week 10 is no surprise, but this remains a situation to monitor throughout the week. A return to the practice field, even on a limited basis, by the end of the week would place Hilton on the right side of questionable.

Indianapolis Colts receiver Devin Funchess returned to practice on Wednesday. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The team now has three weeks to activate Funchess from the designated to return list. With T.Y. Hilton's availability uncertain, getting Funchess back could be huge for a Colts team that just lost to the Miami Dolphins. Jacoby Brissett practiced in full today, and is expected to make the start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Funchess will be an upside flex2 when he returns to the field.

Minnesota Vikings star receiver Adam Thielen missed Wednesday's practice. (Source: Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In order to get him healthy for the stretch run and potentially the playoffs, the Vikings may very well play it safe with their star receiver ahead of the team's Week 12 bye. Thielen has aggravated the injury twice this season, and two more weeks to heal would likely be in the team's best interests. With Thielen expected to be out, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith Jr. should maintain their increased usage. Olabisi Johnson will continue to start in his place, but Kirk Cousins' former teammate Josh Doctson could make a push for that role if he is added to the 53 man roster ahead of this weekend's contest against the Denver Broncos. Alexander Mattison should also see increased usage with the Vikings leaning on the run more than usual against Denver.

Seattle Seahawks star receiver Tyler Lockett appears to have avoided a long-term injury, and is expected to be cleared to play for Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tyler Lockett has left the hospital and made the trip back to Seattle where he will be treated by team doctors. While the injury indeed sounded serious, it appears to only be a short term ailment. This will be a situation to monitor ahead of the team's Week 12 date with the Philadelphia Eagles. If he can log a full practice session prior to the game, Lockett will be WR1 against an Eagles defense surrendering the sixth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Detroit Lions star quarterback Matthew Stafford missed Wednesday's practice with a back injury. (Source: Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After practicing with the injury last week, Matthew Stafford has missed Wednesday's practice. While it is a downgrade status wise, we will have to wait until Friday to determine whether or not Stafford has a chance to play this weekend. Fractured bones in the back could take weeks to heal, and it is possible the Lions will try to limit his reps before seeing any live game action. Jeff Driskel will continue to operate under center in his absence.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida is set to miss the next 1-2 weeks after aggravating his low ankle sprain in the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tevin Coleman gets a slight upgrade with this news, but Raheem Mostert will also figure into the backfield mix. Jeff Wilson should also see some work, and is worth another look in ocean deep leagues. Breida remains involved in the 49ers offense, but is the clear number two to Coleman when healthy. Breida will be an RB3 with matchup based RB2 upside during a difficult 49ers stretch run.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. has been ruled out for Thursday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Snell who showed some explosiveness in Week 6, is expected to miss multiple weeks after undergoing an operation to trim his meniscus. This is an operation that landed Derrius Guice on injured reserve, so the Steelers may be looking ahead to having Snell back for the stretch run. He is safe to drop outside of deeper leagues. James Conner and Jaylen Samuels will continue to dominate the backfield work in his absence.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner has been removed from the team's injury report ahead of Thursday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: James Conner could be in for a big day on the ground with Browns defensive end Olivier Vernon ruled out for the second straight week. Jaylen Samuels will undoubtedly eat into his snaps and targets, but Conner should handle the lion's share of the work on the ground. Only five teams in the league have a higher yards per carry against than the Browns 4.86. Conner is a high upside RB2 for Week 11.

A.J. Green (foot) is not practicing on Wednesday. (Source: Geoff Hobson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Green is still apparently "day-to-day" but it's completely up in the air in regards to when we see him play this season.
