Fantasy Impact: A limited practice on Wednesday is not the worst thing in the world. This is likely just to give him a bit of extra rest as the Eagles prep for Week 13. However, keep an eye on his status in practice in Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Sermon can be dropped in redraft leagues, but he should be held in dynasty leagues as a long term hold.

JaMycal Hasty (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday. He is trending in the right direction for Week 13. (Source: Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hasty may return for Week 13, and he may be involved in the passing game out of the backfield a bit, but he is best viewed as a deep flex play at best.

Antonio Brown (ankle) is expected to miss at least two more weeks. This puts him back for Week 15 at the earliest. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown will likely not make his way back until the fantasy football playoffs for most, but he should remained stashed on every roster, as he has big upside when healthy.

Kene Nwangwu is expected to get more involved in the Vikings offense in Week 13 as Dalvin Cook is on the mend. Alexander Mattison will still likely get the bulk of the work at RB. (Source: Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Nwangwu is likely only going to have appeal in deeper leagues this week. However, if Zimmer is true to his work he could have some flex appeal if he is a factor in both the running and passing game, but again this is not the safest of plays.

Justin Fields (ribs) returned to practice on Wednesday. Though, Andy Dalton took the starter reps signaling that they might ease Fields back into Wednesday's practice. (Source: Boston Sports Herald on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Matt Nagy stated that Fields will be the starter whenever he is healthy, so if Fields progresses in practice this week than he will likely have a shot to play in Week 13. As of right now Dalton is expected to start, but a full practice on Thursday or Friday could mean Fields will suit up.

Lions coach Dan Campbell says RB Jamaal Williams is prepared to carry the load in Week 13 against the Vikings. (Source: Eric Woodyard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: D'Andre Swift (shoulder) isn't expected to play this week, which makes Williams a solid RB2 option against Minnesota. Fellow Detroit backups Godwin Igwebuike and Jermar Jefferson could mix in for a handful of touches as well.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) isn't practicing on Wednesday. (Source: Tashan Reed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Waller remains week-to-week with his knee injury. Foster Moreau profiles as a low-end TE1 streaming options if Waller is unable to play on Sunday.

Adrian Peterson is flirting with the Seahawks on a potential return to the NFL. No personnel decisions have been made by Seattle yet, and there will be more to come from this update. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peterson has not signed, but even if he does sign he likely will not have much fantasy relevance. Deeper leagues could find value if Peterson lands on Seattle's roster. Peterson finished his time with the Titans with 27 rushing attempts for 82 yards and one touchdown.

Chase Edmonds is reportedly out through at least Week 13. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury sounded optimistic about Edmonds' availability in Week 14 against the Rams, which is a Monday night game. (Source: Bob McManaman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edmonds needs to remain on fantasy managers' injured reserve spot. Managers desperate for running backs could go ahead and pick up Edmonds to prepare for his return, however, Edmonds seems to have the most value in full-PPR leagues. There is not any guarantee that Edmonds will play in Week 14, keep that in mind.

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon missed Wednesday's practice with hip and shoulder injuries. (Source: Kyle Newman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Denver Broncos will play it safe with Gordon on Wednesday as their veteran running back is now dealing with a hip injury in addition to his shoulder injury. He will see a reduced workload if he is still bothered with the injury this weekend but is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. Fantasy managers will want to monitor this situation but should remain optimistic but his chances of playing in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Fowler adds that Swift wants to return quickly but that he hurt his AC joint and the Lions want to be careful with their top RB. Jamaal Williams will make for a solid RB2 play for any games that Swift misses. The Vikings are up first in Week 13.

New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis missed Wednesday's practice with a groin injury. (Source: Rich Cimini on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis was injured in practice last week and missed Week 12's contest with the injury. There is hope that he will be able to return this weekend, but he will need to take the practice field by Friday to do so. This is a situation to monitor. Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder, and Denzel Mims will operate as the Jets top three receivers if Davis does not suit up against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker is set to return to practice this week. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Parker missed the last four games with a hamstring injury but is set to practice this week in the hopes of suiting up against the New York Giants. Jaylen Waddle has emerged as Tua Tagovailoa's top target, but Parker should still see enough air yards to boast WR3 upside against the Giants secondary.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller continues to deal with a finger injury and will not practice leading up to this weekend's contest against the New York Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts participated in Wednesday's walkthrough. (Source: Zach Berman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jalen Hurts is dealing with an ankle injury but is healthy enough to participate in Wednesday's walkthrough. He will likely be listed as limited on the injury report but all eyes will be on his participation level over the next two days. Hurts should be able to suit up if he can participate in practice on Thursday and Friday. Hurts showed off his floor in Week 12 but should bounce back against the New York Jets.
