Latest Player Updates

Bears' S Eddie Jackson (COVID-19) has been activated from the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list and will be available to play against the Packers in Week 12, per Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson hasn't missed a game yet this season and his activation from the COVID-19 reserve list is a welcome sign for the Bears' defense, as they will do their best to contain Packers' star QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday night. Jackson has been a force, tallying 58 tackles, three forced fumbles, two pass deflections and a fumble recovery in 10 games for Chicago this season. The Bears D/ST can be streamed in fantasy for Week 12 but there is some risk involved facing Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams.

QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) will start Sunday’s Week 12 contest against the Dolphins. “With Sam Darnold playing and his "Three Dudes" at receiver all expected to play, this is a chance for everyone to "see what maybe it could have been,” said Jets’ HC Adam Gase. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Barring a setback in Friday’s practice, Darnold will start Week 12 against the Dolphins. He has been sidelined since Week 8 with a shoulder injury. Darnold is mainly an option in Two-QB/Superflex league formats and currently 34th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Washington wide receiver Dontrelle Inman caught his only target for 15 yards in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Inman only played 11 offensive snaps on Thursday and caught his only target, while fellow wideout Cam Sims played 55 snaps and wasn't targeted at all. Neither are very reliable in fantasy right now, and the playing time could be closer to a 50% split going forward now that Inman is recovered from his hamstring injury.

Washington running back Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for 57 yards in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Barber's 11 carries were his most since a Week 1 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, though a lot of his work came as the Football Team was running out the clock in a blowout win.

Washington wide receiver Steven Sims caught his only target for eight yards in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Sims played just 13 offensive snaps on Thursday and is not a reliable option even in deeper formats, especially with Dontrelle Inman returning from injury this week.

Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins made both of his field goal attempts and all five of his extra point tries in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Hopkins's field goals were both from fewer than 40 yards out, so he only managed to put up 11 points in most formats despite connecting on seven total kicks on Thursday. For the season, the veteran kicker is 16-for-22 on field goal attempts and 23-for-24 on extra point tries.

The Washington Football Team D/ST allowed 16 points on 247 total yards while recording four sacks, recovering one fumble, and returning one interception for a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: The Washington Football Team D/ST has now recorded four or more sacks in four of their last five games while also holding four of their last six opponents to fewer than 20 points. They are scheduled to face off against the Steelers in Pittsburgh in Week 13.

Washington wide receiver Cam Sims was not targeted in the team's win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

Fantasy Impact: Sims was not targeted on Thursday despite playing 55 snaps on offense. The young wideout was already producing inconsistently on offense, and the return of Dontrelle Inman did not help things on Thursday. Through 11 games, Sims has just 13 receptions for 245 yards and one touchdown.

Bills' OT Cody Ford (knee) suffered a torn meniscus during practice earlier this week, effectively ending his season as he prepares to undergo surgery and rehab for the next three to four months, per Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ford's absence will put a strain on Buffalo's already mediocre rushing attack, which has only mustered a pedestrian 97.6 rushing yards per game during the 2020 season. This places even more pressure on QB Josh Allen to continue his exceptional passing campaign (2,871 yards and 21 Touchdowns) without the protection of the former second-round draft pick Ford. Expect the Bills to continue relying on their aerial attack in the wake of Ford's absence.

Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein made all three of his field goal attempts and his only extra point try in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Zuerlein has been one of the few bright spots for the Cowboys this season, making 21 of his 24 field goal attempts, though he has missed three of his 21 extra point tries.

The Dallas Cowboys D/ST allowed 35 points on 338 yards while recording three sacks and intercepting one pass in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys only have four interceptions through the first 11 games of the season, and linebacker Jaylon Smith almost returned one for a touchdown on Thursday. The Dallas defense has now allowed 28 or more points in seven of their 11 games this season. Their next matchup is currently scheduled to be the Baltimore Ravens, but the status of that game is in question because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the Ravens organization.

Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz caught all five of his targets for 24 yards in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Schultz found the end zone last week but has topped 50 yards receiving just once since Dak Prescott was lost for the year early in the season. For the year, the young tight end has 44 receptions for 432 yards and four touchdowns.

Cardinals’ GM Steve Keim said “QB Kyler Murray is dealing with a shoulder issue, but our expectations are that he’ll be ready to go” for Sunday’s Week 12 matchup against the Patriots. (Source: Darren Urban on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Murray was able to practice in a limited fashion this week, but the shoulder issue is not expected to keep the star QB out of Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Fantasy managers should continue monitor the situation and check back Sunday morning to ensure he’s officially active. Murray is a surefire QB1 and currently 4th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 12.

Cowboys running back Tony Pollard rushed four times for 12 yards and caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Fellow running back Ezekiel Elliott was also held in check on Thursday as the Dallas offense struggled. With Elliott healthy, Pollard has not received consistent work in the Dallas backfield. But with the Cowboys struggling and potentially falling out of contention even in the abysmal NFC East, it's possible the team opts to rest Elliott and lean more on Pollard down the stretch.

Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught six of his eight targets for 41 yards in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Gallup tied for the team lead in targets with eight on Thursday, but he managed just 41 yards receiving. Gallup has had a disappointing season for the Cowboys and for fantasy managers, as he now has just 37 receptions for 538 yards and one touchdown through 11 games.

Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb caught five of his seven targets for 21 yards in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Lamb hauled in five passes on Thursday but managed to average just 4.2 yards per reception. Through 11 games, Lamb has 53 receptions for 650 yards and four touchdowns, but two of those four touchdowns have come over his last three games.

WR John Brown (ankle) will not play in Sunday’s Week 12 contest against the Chargers. (Source: Sal Capaccio on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown has been unable to practice this week due to an ankle injury he sustained in Week 10’s loss to the Cardinals. Bills’ HC Sean McDermott ruled the WR out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Brown needs additional time to recover and will look to return Monday’s Week 13 game against the 49ers. Gabriel Davis should see an expanded role with Brown sidelined Week 12.

Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught six of his eight targets for 112 yards and one touchdown in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper topped 100 yards receiving for the first time since Week 4 and found the end zone for the first time since Week 6 in Thursday's loss. Through 11 games, Cooper has 71 receptions for 848 yards and three touchdowns.

RB Sony Michel “has had a couple of good weeks and will be ready to go,” said Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick. (Source: Ryan Hannable on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Michel has been sidelined since Week 3’s win over the Raiders with a quad injury. He is all systems go and expected to return Week 12 against the Cardinals. Damien Harris played well in his absence and reportedly will remain the starter in the Patriots’ backfield. Michel has logged 26 carries for 173 yards and one touchdown over three games this season.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 10 times for 32 yards and caught one of his three targets for seven yards in Thursday's loss to the Washington Football Team. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Just four days after rushing for over 100 yards for the first time this season, Elliott was completely shut down by the Washington defensive front. Elliott has now fumbled six times already this season, and fantasy owners have to hope that the Cowboys don't start leaning more on Tony Pollard down the stretch if they continue to fall out of playoff contention.
