Patriots' OT Isaiah Wynn (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12, per source. (Source: Jeff Howe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wynn suffered a knee injury against the Texans in Week 11 and failed to participate in practice this week. His injury is the latest to the Patriots' offensive line unit, which will need to continue shuffling healthy linemen to accommodate Wynn's absence at the left guard position. The Cardinals' defense has allowed just six rushing touchdowns on the year, which will present a challenge to the Patriots' run-centric offensive scheme with a weakened offensive line in Week 12.

Patriots' RB Rex Burkhead (knee) confirmed that his season is over, per source. (Source: Mike Reiss on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Burkhead was an emerging weapon in the Patriots' backfield, seeing his role expand in both the ground game and aerial attack resulting in six total touchdowns for the veteran running back. RB Damien Harris and James White will now see an increase in carries, with White likely being the beneficiary of targets in the Patriots' passing game. RB Sony Michel also returns from IR in Week 12 and could earn some carries against the Cardinals' defense.

Titans' CB Adoree' Jackson (knee) will continue to miss time in Week 12 after being activated from Injured Reserve, per source. (Source: Tennessee Titans on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Titans' defense has allowed a remarkable 398.7 yards per game this season. Most of the yardage has been given up through the air and Jackson's return would add some insurance in the Titans' secondary. With Jackson's continued absence in Week 12, the Titans D/ST provides minimal value against a Colts offense averaging close to 300 net passing yards per game.

Titans' WR Adam Humphries (concussion) will remain out in the league's concussion protocol for Week 12, per the Titans' official Friday injury report. (Source: Tennessee Titans on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Humphries has been in the concussion protocol since Week 8 and the Titans have turned to their top wideouts A.J. Brown and Corey Davis even more in his absence. TE Jonnu Smith could also be a beneficiary of multiple targets against a stout Colts defense in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Carson has now logged two limited practices this week and is tracking towards playing Monday night against the Eagles in Week 12. It’s unclear if he would handle a full workload having not played in a month, but he should be back out there. Check back Saturday for the official Seahawks injury report.

Bucs' C A.Q. Shipley suffered a career-ending neck injury in Week 11 and is being placed on IR. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: HC Bruce Arians said, "He had what we thought was a stinger" and "He had this injury back in 2013, I believe. Once we did the MRI and X-rays, it was determined that he really shouldn't play anymore." Arians added that "He'll be going on IR and starting his coaching career." Shipley, a journeyman OL, will be getting the opportunity to coach with the man who has been with him in some aspect on every step of his career. Arians' plan is to continue his tutelage of Shipley as a coach for the Bucs moving forward.

The Raiders have placed DE Takkarist McKinley on IR with a groin injury. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McKinley has made his rounds this season. He was released by the Falcons, before being claimed by the Bengals, 49ers, and now Raiders. The former first-round pick may have finally found a new home, as it seems Las Vegas is willing to take a chance and wait on the talented young DE.

Chargers' DE Melvin Ingram III will miss at least three weeks with a knee injury after being placed on short-term IR. (Source: Los Angeles Chargers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingram is eligible to return Week 15 in a Thursday night conference tilt against the Raiders. Ingram has been a shadow of his former self this season, struggling through injuries and only recording 10 tackles and zero sacks. With this being a contract year for the former Pro Bowler, One might wonder if this is the last we'll see of Ingram in a Chargers uniform.

The Chargers have activated former All-Pro CB Chris Harris Jr. and he'll play Week 12 vs. the Bills. (Source: Los Angeles Chargers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harris hasn't played a game since Week 3, and his availability couldn't have come at a more opportune time. With Casey Hayward already ruled out, and Derwin James on IR, Harris's return helps boost a Chargers' D/ST that's been ravaged by injuries this season.

The San Francisco 49ers will activate DB Richard Sherman for Week 12. (Source: Jennifer Lee Chan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: HC Kyle Shanahan said that Sherman is day-to-day, but the fact that he will be activated is a positive sign that he's trending up for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. The former All-Pro hasn't seen the field since Week 1 and is instrumental in the Niners' secondary.

49ers' RG Tom Compton suffered a concussion during a walk-through and will be out for Week 12. (Source: Tracy Sandler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This may have a negative effect on Raheem Mostert in his return from an ankle injury. The Rams have a stout D/ST and it's still not known if LT Trent Williams will be active. Fantasy managers who held on to Mostert might want to consider other options if available.

The Saints have listed WR Deonte Harris as questionable for Week 12 with a neck injury. (Source: Mike Triplett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harris hasn't practiced all week after suffering a stinger against the Falcons, and his availability for Week 12 is up in the air. His true value comes on special teams, where he was an All-Pro in 2019.

The Saints have ruled out RB Ty Montgomery for Week 12 with a hamstring injury. (Source: Mike Triplett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery hasn't seen the field since Week 2, and barring injuries, should not be rostered in any formats at this time.

Colts C Ryan Kelly (knee) is questionable for Week 12 against the Titans. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kelly didn't practice at all this week, which makes him a true game-time decision for Sunday. His absence would hurt the value of Jonathan Taylor and company.

Bucs OL Ali Marpet (concussion) is questionable for Week 12 against the Chiefs. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Marpet was inactive for Week 11. Tampa Bay could use him after losing A.Q. Shipley to a serious neck injury. Marpet originally suffered his concussion in the beginning of November.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert will be activated and is set to make his return in Week 12 after missing a month with an ankle injury. (Source: Jennifer Lee Chan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mostert should immediately slot in as the 49ers RB1, making him a valuable commodity for fantasy managers looking to make a push for the playoffs. The speedy back has missed five weeks (four games and a bye) with the ankle but appears to be on track for his return this Sunday against the Rams. He should be a viable RB2 with upside moving forward.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will return in Week 12 against the Rams. (Source: Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Samuel hasn't played since Week 7 against New England. The 24-year-old isn't on San Francisco's final injury report of the week. He should be considered a FLEX option against the Rams this weekend.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan did not appear optimistic about the availability of WR Brandon Aiyuk for Sunday's matchup with the Rams. (Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Aiyuk's promising rookie campaign has been somewhat derailed by the Coronavirus. He missed Week 9 against the Packers as a close-contact and is now in jeopardy for Week 12 with his second stint on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list. Deebo Samuels has been cleared to play and offers fantasy value, but draws a tough Rams D/ST in his return from injury.

Saints Pro Bowl OL Andrus Peat has been ruled out for Week 12 with a concussion. (Source: Mike Triplett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peat, who received a hefty contract extension before the season, has been to the Pro Bowl each of the last two years and is a key piece to the Saints offensive line. This shouldn't have too much of an impact on Alvin Kamara as they take on the Broncos Sunday. Denver's D/ST is currently ranked 16th against the run.

Rams HC Sean McVay says TE Tyler Higbee will be a 'game-time decision' for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers. (Source: Andrew Siciliano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Higbee has been a major fantasy disappointment this year after a promising end to his 2019 season. He's only topped 10 points in one game and is seeing an average of just under 4 targets per game. The Rams TE situation as a whole has not been productive, and fantasy managers might want to avoid the group entirely if possible.
