Friday walkthrough: Week 11

Team-by-team review of any key fantasy player and their prospects for playing based on this week’s practice activity and team statements. Only those players listed on the team’s final official injury report will be addressed unless the situation warrants.

PLEASE NOTE: The NFL releases their final official injury report late on Friday (after 4:00pm ET) and teams on the west coast often report their injuries late and are not included.

This week’s key game-time decisions: RB Leonard Fournette (JAC), RB Danny Woodhead (BAL), WR Kenny Stills (MIA)

ARIZONA
QB Drew Stanton (knee) was limited all week in practice and is headed for the bench this weekend. The seemingly rarely healthy WR John Brown (back) had a limited week in practice but is expected to play despite his questionable tag.

ATLANTA – Monday Night
RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been sidelined all week and has not yet cleared concussion protocol. WR Julio Jones (ankle) continues to rest his nagging ankle injury but is expected to play.

BALTIMORE
RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring, IR) returned to practice last week but the team is still non-committal on his activation for this weekend. It’s looking like a game-time decision. RB Terrance West (calf) put in a full week of practice and is expected to return to the crowded backfield Sunday despite being tagged as questionable.

BUFFALO
WR Zay Jones
(ankle) put in a full week of practice and is expected to return to the playing field Sunday. The Bills are managing the practice reps of WR Jordan Matthews (knee) and he’s expected to play. The same can be said for TE Charles Clay (knee) who is also expected to play.

CAROLINA – Bye Week
WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) needs surgery to repair the ligament damage in his ankle and is done for the year. TE Greg Olsen (foot, IR) returned to practice this week and the team expects him to play next week.

CHICAGO
Illness continues to keep TE Dion Sims (illness) sidelined in practice and he’s not likely to play through his questionable tag this week.  

CINCINNATI
WR Brandon LaFell (hamstring) rested quite a bit this week but put in a full practice Friday and is on track to play even though he’s listed as questionable.

CLEVELAND
QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) was limited a bit this week but wasn’t on the team’s final injury report. Same goes for RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder). WR Kenny Britt (knee) remains limited each week in practice but off the final injury report.

DALLAS
WR Dez Bryant (knee, ankle) was limited on Wednesday but returned to full practices the rest of the week and was not on the team’s final injury report. PK Dan Bailey (groin) remains out and is expected to miss at least one more week.

DENVER
QB Brock Osweiler (right shoulder) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) rested on Wednesday but were not on the team’s final injury report after later putting in full practice sessions. TE A.J. Derby (shoulder) has been ruled out. QB Paxton Lynch will be active for the first time this season and serve as Osweiler’s backup today.

(knee) remains out indefinitely.

MIAMI
WR Jarvis Landry (chest) was limited in early week practice but didn’t make the team’s final injury report. WR Kenny Stills (back) hurt his back in practice Thursday and sat out the Friday session. Looks like he’ll be a game-time decision Sunday.
