Latest Player Updates


The Seattle Seahawks D/ST allowed 17 points on Monday against Washington with 371 total yards and one interception.

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks defense actually played its role in this game. Unfortunatley, the offense struggled to even pick up a first down which left the defense on the field way too long.

Jason Myers connected on an extra point attempt Monday, his lone opportunity against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: This Seahawks offense has struggled to even collect a first down these past few weeks. Myers can be left safely on the waiver wire.

Gerald Everett caught five passes for 37 yards and a touchdown on Monday against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Everett saw a team-high nine targets and just about every target he did not catch was a complete misthrow by Russell Wilson. He has become somewhat of a safety blanket for Wilson these past few weeks.

D.K. Metcalf caught one pass for 13 yards on Monday against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Metcalf did not even see a single target till the second half as the Seahawks offense struggled for the third week in a row. As crazy as it sounds, Metcalf is hard to trust as even a WR3/flex option at this point.

Tyler Lockett caught three passes for 96 yards on Monday against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Lockett caught two long passes in the first half which saved his performance from a fantasy football perspective. It was the third straight week in which the Seahawks offense struggled to even pick up a first down. Lockett is a risky WR2 next week against the 49ers.

Alex Collins took seven carries for 14 yards on Monday against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Collins and DeeJay Dallas combined to rush for 18 yards on 10 carries. This Seahawks offense has looked like one of the worst in the league these past few weeks. Collins can't be trusted in fantasy football lineups until we see something out of him.

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns on Monday against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Looking at the box score, Wilson had a decent week from a fantasy football perspective but he still looked awful overall, missing numerous throws with many of them being targeted to Gerald Everett. He now gets a matchup next week against the 49ers who have been on fire as of late. It is tough to trust Wilson in that matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is expected to miss at least two games. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schefter adds the hope is that Cook can return in Week 15 against the Bears. The good news for fantasy managers is this isn't a season-ending issue as of now. Alexander Mattison will be a borderline RB1 for any games that Cook misses moving forward, especially against the Detroit Lions in Week 13.

Rams coach Sean McVay said that Darrell Henderson hurt his quad on Sunday and may be limited in practice this week. (Source: Jourdan Rodrigue via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: If Henderson doesn't suit up then Sony Michel becomes an RB2 in Week 13. We’ll monitor Henderson’s practice participation throughout the week.

Fred Warner is expected to miss Week 13 with a hamstring strain. (Source: Nick Wagoner via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Warner has been good for IDP fantasy managers this season and will be missed. This also means the Niners' defense as a unit should not be started against the Seahawks.

Trey Sermon doesn't have a high ankle sprain but is being considered for short-term IR by 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. (Source: Nick Wagoner via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sermon hasn't been an active part of the Niners' offense since Eli Mitchell and Jeff Wilson have returned to the lineup. Hence he's not a fantasy-relevant player.

Raiders coach Rick Bisaccia says Darren Waller (knee) is "week-to-week". (Source: Adam Hill via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: If Waller is out for any amount of time then Derek Carr and the Raiders offense would need to step up. This could mean the receivers like Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow getting extra work. Foster Moreau would replace Waller as the team's starting tight end.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth is being evaluated for a concussion. (Source: Brooke Pryor via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Freiermuth has emerged as a top tight end in the past five weeks. If he misses time due to a concussion then all Steelers receivers should see an uptick in targets.

Washington wide receiver Curtis Samuel is active for Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. (Source: Doug Kyed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Samuel has been dealing with a groin injury all season and has appeared in just two games. After being signed in free agency, Samuel was expected to step in as the team’s number two receiver behind Terry McLaurin. However, injuries robbed most of his season, and they may still have to wait until he is closer to full health before he assumes that role. Expected to be on a pitch count tonight, Samuel possesses a WR5 floor for his first game back in action. He should be full speed in time for the fantasy playoffs, providing a big boost to Washington and fantasy managers alike.

Washington tight end Logan Thomas is active for Monday Night Football against Seattle Seahawks. (Source: Doug Kyed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring in Week 4. He will be on a pitch count in his first game back in action but should be ready for a full complement of snaps for Week 13. He maintains his TE1 upside for Week 12 but will boast a TE2 floor.

Deebo Samuel is expected to miss 1-2 weeks with a strained groin, according to Kyle Shanahan. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Samuel injured his groin late in Sunday's win over the Vikings, but early word is that the injury was minor. That appears to be the case given the timeline for Samuel, but for fantasy managers, this likely means he'll be out until the fantasy playoffs. Brandon Aiyuk should be the beneficiary of a slightly increased workload, though Samuel was doing much of the damage in the running game rather than as a pass-catcher, with only two catches over the last two weeks. Managers should obviously hold Samuel, and expect his normal production once he returns.

Colts Head Coach Frank Reich says Monday that DT DeForest Buckner is "pretty banged up", unlikely to practice early in week ahead of Sunday's Week 13 game vs the Houston Texans. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Time will tell whether or not Buckner will play on Sunday, but per Keefer it does not sound overly optimistic by any stretch of the imagination. The health of the All-Pro defender, a player who has not missed a game since joining the Colts, will be a situation worth monitoring closely.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) returns to full participation in practice on Monday. (Source: Pro Football Talk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lamb was not quite able to get over the hump and play on Thanksgiving against the Las Vegas Raiders, but as things stand, his availability is looking good for this upcoming Thursday's Week 13 game vs the New Orleans Saints. Fantasy production has been relatively up-and-down for the second-year wideout this season, but his presence in the Dallas WR corps and fantasy managers' lineups is one that was sorely missed last week. Be sure to follow along with the news as the week unfolds.

Saints RB Mark Ingram II (knee) returns to team practice, logs full participation on Monday. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In addition to Ingram II returning to practice, teammate Alvin Kamara (knee) also participated in a limited capacity. New Orleans fans and fantasy managers alike should be thrilled considering the meager efforts of RB Tony Jones Jr. in last Thursday night's game vs the Buffalo Bills. For now, it seems the public can expect Ingram II to be available for Thursday night's Week 13 game vs the Dallas Cowboys barring any unforeseen setback. His fantasy upside will depend on Kamara's health, so be sure to watch out for news on this as the week goes on.

Vikings CB Patrick Peterson reportedly placed on reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: These situations are incredibly fluid based on the nature of the NFL COVID-19 protocol. As such, there is not much to draw from this news for now, but should we hypothesize that Peterson misses Week 13's divisional game vs the Detroit Lions, it would be a boon for Lions WRs. Continue to track this story as the week progresses.
