Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) has been ruled out for the team's Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 19, against the Cleveland Browns. He injured his ankle late in regulation Sunday, Nov. 12, versus the Los Angeles Chargers, and head coach Doug Marrone said it is 'unclear' when Hurns will be ready to play again.
Huddle Up: This is a tough blow for a Jaguars offense that is already limited in their passing game. However, if there's a silver lining, it's that Dede Westbrook should finally get a chance to show what he can do, as the 2017 fourth-round draft pick figures to be activated from the injured reserve list ahead of Sunday's contest. Marqise Lee is the safest play this weekend from Jacksonville's air attack but Westbrook could present the most value for owners in Week 11.
Zay Jones - WR - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (leg) is considered day-to-day at this point, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Jones' status later in the week. He probably will be the No. 3 receiver for the Bills when he plays and probably can be benched against most opponents.
Damien Williams - RB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness) is listed as the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Williams will share snaps with Kenyan Drake during the game and should be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.
Philip Rivers - QB - Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Rivers can participate in practice at some point this week. He would be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense if he is able to play but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.
Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (forearm) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Walker should be able to play in Week 11 even though he will only have a few days to recover from his forearm injury. He has played well over the last few games and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in most leagues.
Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (ankle) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Mariota could be limited during practice this week but should be able to play this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last four games and has four touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. Mariota could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options available.
Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 13. The Steelers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger has been a disappointing option for owners in 2017 and only has 12 touchdowns in nine games. He has been playing a little better lately but probably should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.
Ty Montgomery - RB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) appears to have a chance to play in the team's Week 11 game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Montgomery's practice participation this week to see if he will be in uniform for Week 11. His availability likely will depend on his pain tolerance. Owners should look to add Jamaal Williams if he is available since he likely will receive most of the work at running back this week. Montgomery would be a risky fantasy option if he plays.
Allen Hurns - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) likely will not play in Week 11 because of the ankle injury he suffered in Week 10, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Owners should check later in the week to make sure Hurns is ruled out for the game. Dede Westbrook has a chance to return to the lineup in Week 11 and could receive a decent amount of playing time. Owners in deeper leagues should consider adding Westbrook if they have the roster space.
Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will continue to start despite QB Teddy Bridgewater being available to return.
Huddle Up: It would have been difficult to bench Keenum for Bridgewater given the circumstances. The Vikings are rolling on offense, Keenum is playing well and they're riding a five-game winning streak. Why mess up the momentum? Even so, Keenum can't be trusted as QB1 this week in a tough matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.
Danny Woodhead - RB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will continue to take part in practice, but head coach John Harbaugh said he is not sure if Woodhead will be activated from the Reserve/Injured list this week.
Huddle Up: Woodhead appears to be making progress and could play a game in the near future, so owners should monitor the situation. He should be involved in the passing game when he returns and will be a valuable option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.
Brock Osweiler - QB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Osweiler has thrown for 429 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in his last two games but likely will remain the starter until Paxton Lynch is healthy. Owners should be able to find better options and can avoid Osweiler.
Dede Westbrook - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is set to return in Week 11, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Westbrook has yet to play in his first season in the NFL, but was arguably the most impressive player in the league during the preseason. With Allen Hurns likely sidelined this week, Westbrook has a good opportunity to make an immediate impact. That being said, it might be best to wait and see how he looks and how involved he is before starting him.
Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) chose to have surgery on his injured ankle, which essentially forced the Bengals to place him on the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.
Huddle Up: Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard comprise a two-man backfield in Cincinnati going forward. Mixon is clearly the more valuable running back to have despite his 3.0 yards per carry. Bernard merely provides depth in PPR leagues.
Rob Kelley - RB - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) might be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after suffering a high-ankle sprain and a medial collateral ligament sprain in Week 10. Kelley will at least miss multiple games.
Huddle Up: An already forgettable season becomes even more forgettable for the sophomore running back. With Kelley sidelined for the foreseeable future, Samaje Perine stands to take over running duties, but Chris Thompson remains Washington's most valuable running back. Pick up Perine off waivers if he's available.
Corey Coleman - WR - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will be fully prepared to play in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Coleman is back. The bad news is that he's returning to face the best pass defense in the NFL in the Jacksonville Jaguars. On the year, the Jaguars have yielded just one touchdown to wide receivers. Coleman is a flex consideration at best.
DeShone Kizer - QB - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer appeared to be more vocal with the defense and special teams throughout the Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Hue Jackson. The rookie is seemingly embracing his role as a leader.
Huddle Up: From a fantasy standpoint Kizer has actually been decent this year, thanks in large part to his running ability. Turnovers have been an issue, though. He's thrown at least one interception in all but one of the eight games in which he's played. Still, he's not a terrible backup fantasy quarterback pickup.
Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Freeman has not been ruled out for Week 11, however, contrary to previous reports. Freeman suffered a concussion in the preseason. He injured his knee against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman has the potential to be featured next week, but we'll need to keep tabs on Freeman's status throughout the week. The good news is that Freeman has an extra day to recover since the Falcons play next Monday night. If Freeman does miss the game then Coleman has RB1 upside even in a tough matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) logged a full practice Monday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Ertz was expected to return after sitting out Week 9 and staying off his feet during the team's Week 10 bye, so it appears it will be all systems go for him on Sunday night versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. He has been virtually matchup-proof this season, scoring at least 13.1 fantasy points in PPR leagues in every game, so he's an obvious start next week.
Chris Carson - RB - Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg, ankle) has 'a chance' to return from the Reserve/Injured list sometime in December, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Carroll typically sees sunshine when most see clouds when it comes to injuries, so owners should be highly skeptical of this report. Carson reportedly suffered a fractured leg in addition to a high-ankle sprain, so it is highly possible he may not even be able to play in the postseason. However, if positive reports continued to come out of Seattle regarding his status, he was performing like a RB2 before getting hurt and the only Seahawk running back to experience any kind of success this season.
