Latest Player Updates


Geno Smith did not practice on Friday with an apparent back injury. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith has not played since Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, since then Russell Wilson has taken back his starting role after returning from his finger injury. Smith is not fantasy relevant until Wilson is not active for a matchup.

Travis Homer did not practice on Friday with a calf injury. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Homer was practicing in a limited fashion on Thursday's practice report, so this is not a good sign that he did not practice Friday. We will have to monitor his status on Sunday morning before kick off. Homer only had 1 carry in Week 11's matchup, but if other backs in the Seattle backfield were to miss the matchup in Week 12 with injury, Homer could see an uptick in usage if he were to become active for gameday.

Rashaad Penny did not practice on Friday with a hamstring injury. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Penny did not have a big fantasy impact in Week 11 with only 2 carries, his injury is something to monitor with the majority of the Seahawks backfield all suffering lingering injuries currently, if he becomes active he could have a larger workload depending on the status of the other Seattle running backs injuries which we should know Sunday morning before kick off. Though, it is worth noting he has not practice two days in a row now, so his status is likely doubtful to play in Week 12's contest.

Alex Collins was limited in Friday's practice with an abdomen injury. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is definitely something to monitor before Sunday's Week 12 matchup against Washington. Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer both did not practice on Friday, so if Collins is out on Sunday it looks like a larger workload for Deejay Dallas. Monitor Collins Sunday morning before the Week 12 matchup to see his status for the game. Note that Seattle plays on Monday night.

The Vikings have placed Everson Griffen on the reservce/NFI list after reports of Griffen posting a video of himself acting erratically while holding a gun, reportedly calling 911 and telling responders that he had fired it inside his home. He did leave his home peacefully with no one being hurt from the incident. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully the time off from football will help Griffen and his mental health to come back healthy and ready to play football again.


ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cowboys are considering giving RB Ezekiel Elliott some time off to heal from the knee injury he's been managing. (Source: Ed Werder on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Werder adds that Dallas is considering holding him out of next Thursday's game against New Orleans. However, IR isn't a consideration at this time. It sounds as if Zeke might miss a game or two, but that's it. Tony Pollard would be a plug-and-play RB1 for any games that Elliott misses.

Jets wide receiver Corey Davis (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Week 12 vs. the Texans. (Source: Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis was limited in practice on Wednesday and Friday with a DNP sandwiched in between on Thursday. It sounds like he'll suit up, but fantasy managers will want to confirm his status before kickoff on Sunday. If he does play, he'd fall into the high-end WR3 category. He benefits greatly from the return of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson.

Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin (hip) has shifted from IR to the Reserve/COVID-19 list. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is simply a procedural move for the Cowboys as they shift Jarwin from IR to the COVID-19 list. Once he has recovered from the virus, he'll revert back to IR.

Texans rookie wide receiver Nico Collins (hip) popped up on the injury report on Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Week 12. (Source: Houston Texans PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Collins was a limited participant during practice on Friday. The rookie has totaled 14 catches for 161 yards over the course of his last five games.

Rams wide receiver Ben Skowronek (back) is listed as questionable for Week 12 versus Green Bay. (Source: Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Skowronek was a full participant in practice this week until Friday, when he logged a limited session. The 24-year-old saw a 76 percent snap share and four targets in Week 11, but he's still fourth on the depth chart behind Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham Jr., and Van Jefferson.

Packers running back Aaron Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. He was limited in practice for the entirety of this week. (Source: Nick Cothrel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Packers likely won't rush Jones back too soon since they'd like to save him for the playoffs, so it would not be surprising to see him miss one more game heading into the team's Week 13 bye. In fact, even if he does suit up, he'd likely split time with A.J. Dillon. For the time being, Jones falls into the high-end RB3 tier while Dillon is a mid-range RB2.

Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game after being limited in practice all week long. (Source: Nick Cothrel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lazard missed last Sunday's game. The 25-year-old has appeared in nine games this season, catching 17 passes for 210 yards and a trio of touchdowns. In most leagues, he can be safely left on waivers.

For the second consecutive day, Washington wide receiver Adam Humphries was limited during Friday's practice. (Source: WashingtonFootball.com)

Fantasy Impact: Humphries has been a solid member of the Football Team's receiving core this season, catching 23 passes for 255 yards while filling in for players like Curtis Samuel or Dyami Brown.

Washington Football Team tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) did not participate in practice on Friday. (Source: WashingtonFootball.com)

Fantasy Impact: Seals-Jones didn't play last week, and unless he practices in some form on Saturday, it looks like he'll be inactive for Monday Night Football against the Giants. He could be replaced by Logan Thomas, who is currently on IR, or John Bates.

Giants wide receiver John Ross (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. (Source: Big Blue View on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ross may have just eight catches for 189 yards and one touchdown this season, but he'll compete with Darius Slayton for No. 2 wide receiver reps behind Kenny Golladay this weekend. New York's offense continues to suffer from injuries as pass-catchers Sterling Shepard, Kadarius Toney, and Kyle Rudolph are all expected to be inactive in Week 12.

Giants tight end Kyle Rudolph is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles due to an ankle injury. (Source: Big Blue View on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rudolph has appeared in 10 games this season, catching 17 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown. Assuming he doesn't suit up, fantasy managers can view Evan Engram as a mid-range TE2.

Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. (Source: Fred Greetham on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peoples-Jones missed practice on Wednesday but then logged two consecutive limited sessions. It remains to be seen whether he'll suit up on Sunday. Through eight games, he has totaled 16 catches, 330 yards, and three touchdowns.

Titans tight end Geoff Swaim (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Swaim practiced in full on Wednesday and Friday with a DNP sandwiched in between on Thursday. It looks like the 28-year-old is trending towards playing, which would be important as the Titans are already without A.J. Brown, Julio Jones, and Derrick Henry.

The 49ers have announced that running back JaMycal Hasty won't play against the Vikings on Sunday due to an ankle injury. (Source: Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hasty is now set to miss his third consecutive contest with no return in sight. The 25-year-old's absence coupled with an injury to Elijah Mitchell (finger, rib) should lead to more usage for Jeff Wilson Jr. and Trey Sermon.

49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (rib, finger) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings. (Source: Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mitchell saw a season-low 53 percent snap share in Week 10, then was inactive due to his rib injury this past Sunday. With Jeff Wilson fighting for more touches, Mitchell would be a high-end RB3 if active.
