Indianapolis Colts star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton missed practice on Wednesday. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Missing Wednesday's practice after being an early rule out for Week 10 is no surprise, but this remains a situation to monitor throughout the week. A return to the practice field, even on a limited basis, by the end of the week would place Hilton on the right side of questionable.

Fantasy Impact: The team now has three weeks to activate Funchess from the designated to return list. With T.Y. Hilton's availability uncertain, getting Funchess back could be huge for a Colts team that just lost to the Miami Dolphins. Jacoby Brissett practiced in full today, and is expected to make the start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Funchess will be an upside flex2 when he returns to the field.

Chicago Bears star rookie running back David Montgomery popped up on the team's injury report with an ankle issue. (Source: Adam Jahns on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Perhaps this is just a case of limiting the rookie's reps after he racked up 65 touches over the past three weeks. This will be a situation to monitor throughout the week. Barring downgraded participation, Montgomery should be good to go for this weekend's contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. He will be a volume based RB2 against a Rams defense allowing just 3.59 yards per carry on the season.

Minnesota Vikings star receiver Adam Thielen missed Wednesday's practice. (Source: Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In order to get him healthy for the stretch run and potentially the playoffs, the Vikings may very well play it safe with their star receiver ahead of the team's Week 12 bye. Thielen has aggravated the injury twice this season, and two more weeks to heal would likely be in the team's best interests. With Thielen expected to be out, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith Jr. should maintain their increased usage. Olabisi Johnson will continue to start in his place, but Kirk Cousins' former teammate Josh Doctson could make a push for that role if he is added to the 53 man roster ahead of this weekend's contest against the Denver Broncos. Alexander Mattison should also see increased usage with the Vikings leaning on the run more than usual against Denver.

Seattle Seahawks star receiver Tyler Lockett appears to have avoided a long-term injury, and is expected to be cleared to play for Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tyler Lockett has left the hospital and made the trip back to Seattle where he will be treated by team doctors. While the injury indeed sounded serious, it appears to only be a short term ailment. This will be a situation to monitor ahead of the team's Week 12 date with the Philadelphia Eagles. If he can log a full practice session prior to the game, Lockett will be WR1 against an Eagles defense surrendering the sixth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Detroit Lions star quarterback Matthew Stafford missed Wednesday's practice with a back injury. (Source: Kyle Meinke on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After practicing with the injury last week, Matthew Stafford has missed Wednesday's practice. While it is a downgrade status wise, we will have to wait until Friday to determine whether or not Stafford has a chance to play this weekend. Fractured bones in the back could take weeks to heal, and it is possible the Lions will try to limit his reps before seeing any live game action. Jeff Driskel will continue to operate under center in his absence.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida is set to miss the next 1-2 weeks after aggravating his low ankle sprain in the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tevin Coleman gets a slight upgrade with this news, but Raheem Mostert will also figure into the backfield mix. Jeff Wilson should also see some work, and is worth another look in ocean deep leagues. Breida remains involved in the 49ers offense, but is the clear number two to Coleman when healthy. Breida will be an RB3 with matchup based RB2 upside during a difficult 49ers stretch run.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Benny Snell Jr. has been ruled out for Thursday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Snell who showed some explosiveness in Week 6, is expected to miss multiple weeks after undergoing an operation to trim his meniscus. This is an operation that landed Derrius Guice on injured reserve, so the Steelers may be looking ahead to having Snell back for the stretch run. He is safe to drop outside of deeper leagues. James Conner and Jaylen Samuels will continue to dominate the backfield work in his absence.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner has been removed from the team's injury report ahead of Thursday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: James Conner could be in for a big day on the ground with Browns defensive end Olivier Vernon ruled out for the second straight week. Jaylen Samuels will undoubtedly eat into his snaps and targets, but Conner should handle the lion's share of the work on the ground. Only five teams in the league have a higher yards per carry against than the Browns 4.86. Conner is a high upside RB2 for Week 11.

A.J. Green (foot) is not practicing on Wednesday. (Source: Geoff Hobson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Green is still apparently "day-to-day" but it's completely up in the air in regards to when we see him play this season.

Jacoby Brissett (knee) will be a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is expected to start in Week 11 against the Jaguars. (Source: Zak Keefer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brissett appears to be good to go for this AFC South divisional showdown. Brian Hoyer just didn't get the job done against the Dolphins last week so Brissett's return will be a positive for all of Indy's skill players.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Austin Hooper (knee) is expected to miss about a month. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hooper was diagnosed with a sprained MCL following Sunday's win over the Saints. With Atlanta having little to play for right now it makes sense for them to not rush him back. It's a tough blow for fantasy owners as Hooper was leading all tight ends in receptions this year.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross has been cleared to practice, and has been designated to return from the injured reserve list. (Source: Cincinnati Bengals on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Bengals will now have three weeks to activate John Ross from injured reserve. Ross' return will be a big boost for Ryan Finley. The rookie QB may be without A.J. Green for the rest of the season, so getting the lid lifting speedster back in the lineup could provide him with a top target on the outside. Ross is the WR12 in fantasy points per game.

Philadelphia Eagles star receiver Alshon Jeffery has been deemed day-to-day by head coach Doug Pederson. (Source: Eliot Shorr-Parks on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery has been a massive disappointment this season. He is the WR44 in total fantasy points. He is the WR35 in fantasy points per game. It is concerning that Jeffery has been labeled day to day after he had the Eagles Week 10 bye to heal. He will likely need to log a practice session by Friday to have a chance to play on Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles could end up facing the defending champion New England Patriots with Nelson Aglohor, Mack Hollins, and Jordan Matthews as their top three receivers. Rookie wideout J.J. Arcega-Whiteside should also factor into the equation if Jeffery were forced to miss time.

Parris Campbell (hand) says he "hopes to be back" by December. (Source: George Bremer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Campbell broke his hand in Week 9 and needed surgery afterwards. He'll be out for a couple more weeks (at least) but is targeting a December return to action. Zach Pascal is currently operating as Indy's top receiver with T.Y. Hilton (calf) also sidelined.

Drew Lock (thumb) resumed practicing on Tuesday. (Source: Associated Press)

Fantasy Impact: Lock now has three weeks to be activated off IR. It's possible he could see some starts in December if Denver has nothing to play for late in the year.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Ed Dickson (knee) will return in Week 12. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dickson was close to returning for Seattle's Week 10 game on Monday night but the team wanted him to have the additional two weeks to heal. The Seahawks a bye in Week 11. Dickson will likely operate behind Jacob Hollister and doesn't have any fantasy value.

Emmanuel Sanders (rib) is considered day-to-day right now and is likely to be a game-time decision for Week 11 versus Arizona. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: George Kittle (knee) is currently in the same boat. Sanders left Monday's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury and never returned. It'll be important to monitor his practice reports this week.

49ers coach Kyle Shannahan says George Kittle (knee) remains day-to-day. (Source: Can Inman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shannahan added that he is "hopeful" Kittle returns in Week 11 against the Cardinals. However, it's far from a sure thing. His practice reports will need to be monitored closely this week.

Chris Herndon IV (ribs) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday. (Source: Brian Costello on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Herndon was suspended for the first four games of the season. He suffered a hamstring injury and missed the next four contests after the suspension. Herndon made his season debut for Sunday’s Week 10 contest against the Giants, where he suffered a broken rib and was ultimately placed on the injured reserve. He finishes 2019 with one catch for seven yards on two targets. Ryan Griffen should see additional snaps and targets while Herndon is sidelined.
