Fantasy Impact: Coach Pete Carroll called him a game-time decision but he’s likely to be inactive. Wright, who has missed all but three games this season, aggravated a nagging knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Shaquem Griffin and Austin Calitro are likely to see additional snaps in his absence.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice. (Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It was Burfict’s first practice since injuring his hip in Week 7. It’s not yet known if he will be ready to play in Sunday’s game against the Ravens, but his ability to practice is a step in the right direction. If he is able to play, his return comes at the right time as Preston Brown’s (knee) status for Sunday is in danger and the Bengals are still without Nick Vigil as well. Adding insult to injury, Burfict’s replacement, Vincent Rey (groin), was limited Wednesday too.

Bengals linebacker Preston Brown did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury. He was seen wearing a large brace on his right knee but would not comment on the injury, only saying "Coach (Marvin Lewis) said I can't speak about injuries." (Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Brown hurt the knee in the third quarter of the loss to the Saints but stayed in the game. The Bengals linebacking corps is in rough shape as Nick Vigil (knee) also sat out Wednesday and Vontaze Burfict (hip) and Vincent Rey (groin) were limited. Burfict and Vigil have already missed multiple weeks.

Ravens safety Tony Jefferson did not practice Wednesday due to a thigh injury. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson had been battling a hamstring injury prior to the bye week but the thigh is something new. The severity is unclear at this time. His participation Thursday and Friday is certainly worth monitoring.

Joe Flacco was absent from practice on Wednesday due to his hip injury.

Fantasy Impact: Flacco entered the week questionable, but the team has already said that the veteran signal caller doesn't need to practice in order to play Week 11 against the Bengals. This is shaping up to be a game-time decision, but at least this game kicks off at 1 pm EST Sunday.

Jordy Nelson could miss Week 11's contest with Arizona due to a knee injury. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's been a steep dropoff for Nelson, who hit a new low Week 10 with no receptions against the Chargers. The veteran is hard to roster at this point as he's clearly not the team's top option even after Oakland traded away Amari Cooper.

Deonte Thompson has signed with the Bills. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thompson was waived by the Cowboys last week. He spent time with the Bills last season, and he'll take over the spot vacated by the release of Terrelle Pryor. He won't carry fantasy value at this point.

Washington head coach Jay Gruden told reporters that there's a "good chance" Chris Thompson misses Week 11's contest against the Texans (Source: John Keim on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thompson had a hot start to the season, but like last year he's struggled to be effective through injury. It's not clear when he'll be back, but he'll likely continue to be sidelined through Week 11. Kapri Bibbs will take Thompson's place as the team's pass-catching back, but he's not more than a deep flex play in PPR leagues.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters that he's "hopeful" to have A.J. Green Week 11 against the Ravens. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The game is a big one for the Bengals, and the offense was a trainwreck without its top WR. Despite this, it's not clear if Green will be able to make it back for this week's showdown with Baltimore. If he remains out, Tyler Boyd should see consistent targets, though he wasn't able to do much Week 10 and he'll face a difficult Baltimore secondary.

James Conner was able to return to practice in a full capacity on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers indicated that Conner would be good to go for Week 11 earlier in the week, and that seems to be the case as the second-year RB is on track to suit up against the Jaguars. It's not an easy matchup, but given Conner's usage, he needs to continue to be fired up against Jacksonville.

Chris Godwin missed practice with an ankle injury on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: This is a surprise considering there was no word of an injury following Sunday's game. This could be nothing more than a day off given the amount of touches Godwin saw against Washington, but owners will want to monitor his status as the week goes to see if he's able to return.

Ronald Jones II was able to return to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. He's dealing with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been out since suffering his injury Week 8. He's expected to return this week, but it's not clear what his role will be as Peyton Barber continues to be the team's primary back. It could very well be that Jones isn't given a larger role in this offense until 2019, though the Buccaneers would seem to have incentive to see what they have in Jones down the stretch.

Taywan Taylor was out for Wednesday's practice due to his foot injury.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor suffered the injury Week 9 and has been out since. His status is worth monitoring this week to see if he's able to at least enter the weekend questionable. If he's out, Tajae Sharp figures to see additional targets, though that wasn't the case against New England. Corey Davis should continue to be the focus of the passing game.

Category: Injury Updates


Jamison Crowder was out for Wednesday's practice. He's dealing with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder hasn't played since Week 5 due to the ankle injury, and there's no word on when he's expected back. As long as he remains out, Maurice Harris will be a viable fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues, as he takes over Crowder's role.

Marvin Jones was unable to practice Wednesday due to his knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Jones suffered the reported bone bruise Week 10, and he's questionable to play Week 11 against the Panthers. If Jones should be sidelined, Kenny Golladay and Theo Riddick would likely be the largest beneficiaries in terms of additional targets.

Brice Butler has signed with the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Miami has been hit hard by injuries to its WR corps, and Butler will add depth. He's not fantasy relevant at this point and doesn't figure to see enough volume this season to be worth consideration.

Stefon Diggs was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice. He's returning from a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact: Diggs was held out Week 9 and was able to rest his injury through the bye week. The team wasn't the same without him, and it's good for everyone (especially Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen) that Diggs is on track to return. While Diggs hasn't been great playing through injury through his career, he'll remain a WR2 despite the difficult matchup against Chicago.

Category: Injury Updates


Adam Thielen was limited at Wednesday's practice by a back and calf injury.

Fantasy Impact: it's interesting that Thielen is on the injury report coming out of the team's bye. The team has given no reason to think Thielen will miss Week 11's contest against the Bears, but this is something to monitor. It's not an easy contest against Chicago, but Thielen continues to be a lock WR1 given his production this season.

Washington activated Trey Quinn from injured reserve. He had been sidelined by an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Quinn was Mr. Irrelevant this past NFL Draft, but he made waves this training camp prior to his injury. While Washington's passing offense hasn't provided much fantasy relevance this season, Quinn could get a shot to show what he can do considering the injuries the team is facing at the position.

ArDarius Stewart has signed with the Raiders and will be added to their practice squad.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart was a third-round pick by the Jets in 2017, but he was cut ahead of the 2018 season. Despite his solid draft capital, he doesn't have fantasy appeal at this time given the lack of interest he received in only his second season in the league.
