Fantasy Impact: Abram has once again been banged up this year, dealing with both knee and shoulder issues. The 2019 first-round pick is a hard-hitting safety who is known for trying to make big plays happen.

Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports there's "no guarantee" that Dolphins WR Preston Williams (foot) plays again this season. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams hasn't played since Week 9 and Wolfe notes that his injury "wasn't minor." DeVante Parker continues to see an increased target share with Williams sidelined. Williams can be left on waivers in redraft leagues.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Lions are planning to waive WR Marvin Hall. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hall had a 113-yard game back in Week 8 but Garafolo notes that the Lions want to give their younger players some looks down the stretch. He also notes that Hall should garner some interest on waivers.

Titans OL Isaiah Wilson (illness) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Browns. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has barely played for Tennessee this season after being taken in the first round of the 2020 amateur draft to replace Jack Conklin. His absence is a boost for Cleveland's pass rush.

Lions CB Jeff Okudah (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Bears. (Source: Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Okudah has been banged up throughout his rookie campaign. His absence is a plus for Allen Robinson and the rest of Chicago's receiving corps.

Seahawks DL Carlos Dunlap (foot) will be a game-time decision in Week 13 against the Giants. (Source: Michael-Shawn Dugar on Twiter)

Fantasy Impact: Dunlap suffered the foot injury on Monday night against the Eagles. His presence is an important one for Seattle, as their defense has greatly improved since his acquisition.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee, IR) is "trending towards" playing in Week 13 against the Bengals. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gaskin has missed the past four games with a sprained knee, but he could be given a pretty decent workload if he's able to give it a go on Sunday. Salvon Ahmed and DeAndre Washington are both doubtful while Matt Breida was recently placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Patrick Laird could be Gaskin's only competition for touches.

Chris Carson is expected to be featured more in Week 13's contest against the Giants according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carson only had 10 touches in Week 12 coming off of injury. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Carson getting 10 touches was not ideal for fantasy managers in Week 12. Hearing this mention from his head coach certainly bodes well from a volume perspective. Many fantasy managers were burned by Carson last week, but this update should give you the confidence to go right back to him in Week 13.

Rashaad Penny will start practicing with the Seahawks leading up to Week 14. Penny is not expected to be game-ready for several weeks as he is still coming back from torn knee ligaments. (Source: Gregg Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Penny can be left on waivers and is considered a long shot to establish a clear-cut role and become fantasy relevant before the end of the 2020 fantasy season.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport has officially ruled out for Week 13 with a concussion. (Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although he doesn't have the stat line to prove it, Davenport is a constant disrupter for the Saints' DL. Fantasy managers are still rolling out a Saints D/ST that has been darn-right nasty after a slow start to the season.

Chargers RB Kalen Ballage is officially listed as questionable for Week 13 with an ankle injury. (Source: Los Angeles Chargers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ballage was a full participant in Friday's practice and appears to be trending up for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots. Even with the return of Austin Ekeler, Ballage still has fantasy relevance. Despite his inefficiency, if he maintains the "Melvin Gordon" role in L.A., Ballage could still be a viable FLEX option for fantasy managers in need.

After being a limited participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury, Saints star WR Michael Thomas will not carry an injury designation for Week 13. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas has been battling through an ankle injury but appears to be a full-go for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. Thomas was the beneficiary of 12 targets in Week 11's game against the "Dirty Birds". Taysom Hill's ability to pass the ball is still in question, but there's no doubt that Michael Thomas is his favorite target when he does. Fantasy managers have to play Thomas as a low-end WR1 and hope that he can overcome the mediocre QB play.

Lamar Jackson will be eligible to be activated from the team's COVID-19 reserve list on Sunday with medical clearance. The Ravens play the Cowboys on Tuesday. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There is certainly a lot of grey area and questions surrounding Jackson's return. Will we know before the kickoff of the early games? Will he be the starter with a full workload after missing a full week of practice? Will he have any lingering effects from his infection? Hopefully, all of those questions are answered over the next couple of days. The Cowboys are giving up the 10th-most points to opposing quarterbacks and fifth-most to opposing running backs (alluding to Jackson's rushing ability). If there is word that he'll be starting with a full workload before Sunday, he will make for a high-end QB1 against Dallas. However, if you have Jackson on your team it's best to look for a backup in case these questions are still unanswered before Sunday's kickoffs.

Although being limited at practice all week, Saints star RB Alvin Kamara will not carry an injury designation for Week 13. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kamara has been battling through a foot injury but appears to be fully healthy for Week 13's matchup with the Falcons. Kamara has felt Drew Brees's absence the most, falling victim to Taysom Hill's rushing ability in the red zone. In Hill's two starts, Kamara has totaled less than 100 scrimmage yards and only one reception. Fantasy managers should be concerned, but you have to roll with talent, and Kamara should be started in all formats.

The Ravens have placed QB Robert Griffin III on short-term IR with a thigh injury suffered in Wednesday's matchup with the Steelers. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Griffin will miss the next three weeks and is eligible to return Week 16 against the Giants. Trace McSorley will step in as Lamar Jackson's primary backup. HC John Harbaugh has been mum about Jackson's availability for Tuesday's matchup with the Cowboys, so McSorley may have value in two QB and Super-FELX leagues for Week 13.

Patriots starting QB Cam Newton has officially been designated questionable with an abdomen injury. (Source: Chris Mason on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Netwon has been limited all week, battling through the injury, but is optimistic that he will play Sunday. Fantasy managers looking to start Newton should also consider the Pats are taking on Joey Bosa (coming off a three-sack performance) and the Chargers. With the aggressive style in which Newton plays, there may carry a risk of aggravating the injury in game.

Titans WR Adam Humphries (concussion) will return in Week 13 against the Browns. (Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Humphries hasn't played since suffering a massive blow to the head back in Week 8. He'll function as a high-floor, low-ceiling PPR option in deeper fantasy formats.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney missed practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 13. (Source: Jeff Dickerson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: HC Matt Nagy "expects" Mooney to go this Sunday, and it appears holding him out of Friday's practice was just a precaution. Mooney could have FLEX value this week as the Bears take on a lowly Lions D/ST.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Chiefs. (Source: Denver Broncos on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay didn't practice on Wednesday but got in a couple of limited session to close out the week. He's on track to play on Sunday night against the Chiefs, which makes both him and Melvin Gordon shaky RB3s for fantasy purposes.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Chiefs. (Source: Denver Broncos on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeudy was limited in practice throughout the week so should ultimately be okay to play on Sunday night. Fantasy managers should consider him a WR3 for this matchup.
