Injury Marvin Jones lands on IR
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2018, 1:00 pm

Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones is being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, head coach Matt Patricia announced Monday. Jones suffered the injury against Chicago on Nov. 11 and then went to get a second opinion less than a week later, a source told ESPN. He missed both the Carolina and Thanksgiving Bears game before being placed on injured reserve Monday. Jones finishes the season with 35 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Lions are very thin at the wide receiver position with Kenny Golladay being the only real threat in the passing game. Bruce Ellington, T.J. Jones and Andy Jones are next up on the WR depth chart with only Ellington being worthy of fantasy consideration. Ellington has seen 16 targets the last two weeks but only totaled 80 yards.
Injury Melvin Gordon to miss a few weeks
Grade 2 MCL sprain
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 26 2018, 7:00 am

#Chargers star RB Melvin Gordon was diagnosed with a grade 2 MCL sprain suffered in yesterday’s blowout win, sources say. He had his MRI last night. Gordon is out the next few weeks, but should be back before the end of the regular season if all goes well. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gordon came into Week 12 dealing with knee and hamstring injuries and left with an MCL sprain. In his absence Austin Ekeler and rookie Justin Jackson will handle the running back duties with Ekeler being a weekly RB2 option. The Chargers upcoming schedule includes: @PIT, CIN, @KC, BAL.
Eagles to feature RB Josh Adams?
Adams in the RB2 conversation
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2018, 9:40 am

Philadelphia Eagles
From @NFLGameDay: The #Eagles are planning to feature RB Josh Adams as their starter going forward, an impressive rise for the former UDFA from Notre Dame... and #Chargers RB Melvin Gordon, listed as questioanable, is set to play today. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sounds like the Eagles coaching staff has realized that Adams is their best back and should see the bulk of the work in their backfield. We'll see how the snap counts and usage counts look today between Adams, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. Adams is in the RB2 conversation.
Injury Melvin Gordon expected to play
Hamstring and knee injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 25 2018, 7:00 am

Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon, listed as questionable for Sunday due to knee and hamstring injuries, plans to play vs. Cardinals, per source. Gordon convinced coaches this weekend to give him a chance, despite some organizational interest in resting him for maintenance. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gordon is going to give it a go in a prime matchup against the Cardinals. He's worth starting but does carry some risk of being limited if he gets a little nicked up. The Cardinals are giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to running backs.
Marquise Goodwin downgraded to doubtful
Returned to San Francisco due to a personal matter
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2018, 5:00 pm

San Francisco
The 49ers likely will play Sunday without their top two wide receivers, as the club on Saturday downgraded Marquise Goodwin to “doubtful." Goodwin made the trip with his 49ers teammates Friday to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But the 49ers excused Goodwin to address a personal matter back in the Bay Area. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers are extremely thin at wide receiver without Goodwin. Pierre Garcon has already been ruled out due to a knee injury. Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis should soak up most the wide receiver targets from Nick Mullens against the Bucs.
Injury Melvin Gordon, Tyrell Williams questionable
Gametime decisions
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2018, 8:45 am

RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring, knee), WR Tyrell Williams (quad) and DT Brandon Mebane (not injury related) all were listed as questionable by the Chargers as they host the Cardinals on Sunday. Williams and Gordon likely will be game-time decisions. Both were limited participants on Friday, while Mebane did not practice for a second straight day due to a personal matter. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Gordon is dealing with a sore knee. “Most starting runners this time of year are sore or something’s wrong,” Lynn said. “So we’ll have to decide if it’s worth holding him back or just letting him go.” (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Gordon was limited on Thursday and Friday raising questions about his workload on Sunday even if he does play. The Chargers may decide they can beat the lowly Cardinals without their star running back. If Gordon sits, Austin Ekeler would move into the RB2 conversation.
Injury Doug Baldwin a gametime decision
Injured his groin on Tuesday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 24 2018, 8:00 am

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said Doug Baldwin (groin) ran Friday but didn't do much in practice. Will be a game-day decision. Baldwin, who had been on the injury report earlier this season with a groin injury that did not keep him out of any games, will be a game-day decision after not practicing Friday, Carroll said. “We’re going to work him out in pregame and make sure he’s OK,” Carroll said. “We’ve got him as questionable right now.” (

FFToday's Take: Baldwin missed practice all week so he's probably on the wrong side questionable heading into Sunday. The Seahawks and Panthers play at 1 pm Eastern so we'll know his status 90 minutes before kickoff.
Injury Gronk ready for action in Week 12
Back injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2018, 3:45 pm

New England Patriots
Upbeat Rob Gronkowski declares himself "good to go" for Sunday vs. Jets, and while Tom Brady missed practice Friday due to an illness, he's also expected to play Sunday. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronk has missed the last month with a back injury but is expected to play against the Jets. Gronk has been a shell of himself this season so perhaps the rest did him some good. He's on the low-end TE1 radar for Week 12.
Injury Darnold out, McCown gets another start
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2018, 3:30 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will sit for the second straight game with a foot injury, coach Todd Bowles confirmed Friday. The move sets up the second-oldest quarterback matchup in NFL history: Josh McCown, 39, against the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, 41. Brady has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury but is expected to play Sunday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: McCown's first start of the season against the Bills didn't go so well. McCown ended the day with 135 yards and 2 INTs finishing as the QB29 in Week 10. He'll face the Patriots in Week 12 with a banged up receiving corps. Robby Anderson is pushing to play with an ankle injury.
Injury Funchess Doubtful, Torrey Smith likely to return
Moore, Samuel in the WR mix for Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2018, 3:15 pm

Carolina Panthers
Devin Funchess is doubtful for Sunday; Torrey Smith is questionable. Rivera said there's a "little glimmer" of hope that Funchess plays Sunday. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Funchess missed practice this week with a back injury and it's likley he'll be on the inactive list Sunday against the Seahawks. The return of Torrey Smith puts a little bit of cold water on the fantasy value of D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel but both are decent options in Week 12 with Moore carrying the most upside.
Injury A.J. Green listed as questionable
Will be re-evaluated on Saturday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 23 2018, 3:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Green categorized as questionable despite not practicing all week. Marv says AJ could practice tomorrow and play Sunday. (Geoff Hobson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A.J. Green (foot) missed practice all week but is listed as questionable. It seems like a longshot of for him to play but we could get surprise on Saturday. The Bengals offense needs their best player on the field.
Injury A.J. Green misses practice Wednesday
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2018, 11:55 am

Cincinnati Bengals
No Josh Malone, A.J. Green, Nick Vigil or Dre Kirkpatrick at today's #Bengals practice. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Green injured his toe in Week 8 and is expected to practice in some capacity later this week. His status for Sunday is unclear but would be a big boost for the Bengals offense if he can get on the field against the Browns.
Injury Trubisky doubtful, Chase Daniel expected to start
Trubisky woke up sore Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 21 2018, 11:45 am

Chicgao Bears
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky woke up sore Wednesday and had less movement in his injured shoulder than the team expected, making it likely that Chase Daniel will start Thanksgiving Day against the Lions, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Trubisky, who is officially listed as doubtful for the game, has an AC sprain in his throwing shoulder and not a labrum issue, a source told Schefter. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Chase Daniel will get the start Thursday against a Lions defense that is beatable by quarterbacks but Daniel hasn't shown enough in his limited playing time to make him a QB1 in Week 12.
Injury O.J. Howard lands on IR
Foot and ankle injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 20 2018, 3:30 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs TE O.J. Howard will be placed on injured reserve with foot and ankle injuries. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The tight end position suffers another blow. Howard has been fantasy's No.5 tight end through 11 weeks. In his absence, Cameron Brate should step into the starting role and be a low-end TE1 during the final weeks of the season.
Injury Mitchell Trubisky "day-to-day" w/ shoulder injury
Bears QB uncertain for Thanksgiving game against Detroit
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 20 2018, 2:53 pm

Chicgao Bears
Brad Biggs on Twitter: "#Bears coach Matt Nagy: "He has a right shoulder that we're dealing with right now and it's something that is going to be day--to-day for us" on QB Mitch Trubisky." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mitchell Trubisky really can give you the best and the worst all in one game, as we see form him every week, so the fact that's questionable adds another layer of uncertainty for his owners. At this point, it's best top make other plans, but if we get word before gametime he's okay to start against the Lions, I'd roll him out. Chase Daniel is the backup and not much of a fantasy option if he gets a spot start.
Injury Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) looks like a Week 12 go
Miami QB should resume starting duties Sunday
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 20 2018, 2:48 pm

Miami Dolphins
Adam Beasley on Twitter: "Gase will tell us in an hour, but I'd say the smart money is on Ryan Tannehill playing Sunday." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tannehill isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but if he's got his full complement of offensive weapons he could be a sneaky QB2. And as a mobile QB, he can score with his legs even if his shoulder isn't 100 percent. It's also pretty safe to dismiss Brock Osweiler.
Injury Alex Smith diagnosed with compound fracture
Doctors also discovered spiral fracture in right leg
By: Doug Orth | Nov 19 2018, 7:00 pm

Washington Redskins
Alex Smith suffered a compound fracture - meaning the bone broke through his skin, per source. Trauma surgeons discovered Smith suffered a spiral fracture in his leg - defined as a long bone broken by a rotational force. Smith, 34, faces a lengthy rehab process to try to return. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: He's done for the season, and the injury is serious enough that his career could be in question. At best, he's facing a long rehab process. Colt McCoy will start the rest of the way for the current NFC East leaders and be backed up by newly signed Mark Sanchez. It's hard to believe any Washington pass-catcher will benefit from this shakeup, although Jordan Reed had his best in the game of the season and slot receiver Trey Quinn flasehed in his NFL debut in Week 11.
Jalen Richard earns Charlie Garner comp
Gruden: "He might be the MVP on this team."
By: Doug Orth | Nov 19 2018, 6:55 pm

Oakland Raiders
HC Jon Gruden said Jalen Richard reminds him of Charlie Garner. "He might be the MVP of this team. ... He could run for 1,000 yards and catch for 1,000 yards someday. He is tough, hard to tackle. And he can line up in the slot or outside." (The Athletic - Vic Tafur)

FFToday's Take: Start up the hype train. Kidding aside, while Gruden's comp isn't totally unfair, Week 11 probably would not have been the first time Richard played more than 30 snaps since Marshawn Lynch's injury if the coach really felt this way. Game script is obviously going to work in Richard's favor more often than not going forward in 2018, however, as there is a very distinct chance he ends up as Oakland's most productive fantasy back. He's a capable flex with upside for more.
Injury Jimmy Graham will try to play in Week 12
Suffered broken thumb in Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Nov 19 2018, 6:40 pm

Green Bay Packers
Jimmy Graham intends to try to play this week with a broken thumb. Will experiment with different splits and protections. (ESPN - Rob Demovsky)

FFToday's Take: Owners need to proceed with caution with Graham, as he has one catch in three of his last four games. The fact he is TE10 in PPR this season is a reflection of how bad the position has been in fantasy. Given how important a thumb is to catching a football and the upcoming matchup (Minnesota Vikings), owners would probably be better off going with another option - such as Vance McDonald or Jeff Heuerman.
Injury Redskins expected to sign Mark Sanchez
QB has ties to Redskins coaching staff
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 19 2018, 12:10 pm

Washington Redskins
The Redskins are expected to sign QB Mark Sanchez, per source. He'll serve as the back-up to Colt McCoy. (Field Yates on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Alex Smith suffered a broken leg in Week 11 leaving Colt McCoy as the starter moving forward. Sanchez hasn't played since 2016 but does have ties with OC Matt Cavanaugh, OL coach Bill Callahan and QB coach Kevin O'Connell who's worked with in previous seasons. Upcoming schedule for the Redskins include @DAL, @PHI, NYG and @JAX.
Injury Kerryon Johnson week to week with knee injury
Sprained knee
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 19 2018, 11:56 am

Detroit Lions
Lions RB Kerryon Johnson is week to week with a sprained knee per source. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Johnson was on his way to a 100-yard rushing game when he left in the third quarter with what appears to be a sprained knee. It's unlikely he will play on Thursday leaving LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner to handle running back duties in Week 12.
Injury Rob Gronkowski expected to return Week 12
Back injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 18 2018, 8:15 am

New England Patriots
After missing three of the past four games with a lingering back injury, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is expected to be able to play in New England’s next game after Sunday’s bye against the New York Jets, per sources. More on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronk has been a disappointment this season dealing with ankle and back injuries. He's looked slow on the field and currently ranks as fantasy's No.9 tight end. He'll get the Jets, Vikings, Dolphins and Steelers over the next four weeks.
Injury Lamar Jackson expected to start
RGIII could see the field as well
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 18 2018, 8:00 am

Baltimore Ravens
From @gmfb Weekend: The #Ravens offense needed a spark and likely rookie starter Lamar Jackson is poised to provide it against the #Bengals. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: All indications point to Jackson getting the start and we could see Robert Griffin III mixed in on some gadget type plays. Jackson was woeful in the passing department during the pre-season but does have some serious rushing chops which makes him a QB2 consideration.
Injury Sammy Watkins misses practice Saturday
Questionable with foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 17 2018, 3:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Sammy Watkins is listed as questionable by the Chiefs for Monday night’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice on Friday or Saturday because of a sore foot. “We’re taking that day by day,’’ coach Andy Reid said. “We’ll see how he does as we go.’’ (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs have a bye in Week 12 so it won't be a surprise if Watkins is held out Monday night against the Rams. Chris Conley would start in his place but wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option.
Injury Marvin Jones ruled out
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 16 2018, 3:35 pm

Detroit Lions
Marvin Jones, as expected, ruled out for Sunday. (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Jones out, the Lions will be thin at the wide receiver position with Kenny Golladay leading the group. Expect running back Theo Riddick to so more work in the slot and be a cheap PPR flier in DFS contests.
Injury Flacco misses Friday, starting QB unclear
Lamar Jackson returns
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 16 2018, 11:15 am

Baltimore Ravens
Lamar Jackson returned to practice today. Joe Flacco remained out of practice. If Flacco isn't starting, and it would be quite surprising if he was at this point, I would imagine he wouldn't be an emergency backup either. So could lead to RG3 being active for first time all season as well. Harbaugh said he won’t name a starter at QB for Sunday. (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Flacco hasn't practiced in two weeks due to a hip injury meaning it's likely we're going to get either Lamar Jackson or Robert Griffin III starting in Week 11. It sounds like Jackson is trending toward being the starter, but it's no guarantee that he plays all the snaps. RGIII could be mixed in making Jackson a risky QB play.
Injury Keke Coutee a gametime decision
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 16 2018, 11:00 am

Houston Texans
Texans rookie wide receiver Keke Coutee has practiced all week and made plenty of progress with his left strained hamstring. Coutee's availability is regarded as a fluid situation Sunday against Washington, according to coach Bill O'Brien. "Game-time decision, but I think he has a chance to play in the game," O'Brien said. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Coutee will play this week against the Redskins but it's hard to have confidence in him given there's still some question about his injured hamstring. The Redskins represent a plus matchup for fantasy receivers giving the 7th most fantasy points to the position.
Injury No guarantee D'Onta Foreman plays in 2018
RB confident he will return
By: Doug Orth | Nov 15 2018, 7:55 pm

Houston Texans
In order to be on the active roster and play again this season - and that's something D'Onta Foreman said he's "confident" will happen - Bill O'Brien needs to see he is in good enough shape to play. O'Brien pointed out that before Wednesday, Foreman had not "done anything on a football field" or faced contact since he tore his Achilles nearly a year ago. "We would have to really look at what he's able to do relative to what he did last year - running the ball on first and second down, some of the different things he did in the passing game. He had a good year last year. That was a long time ago, so let's just ... see where he's at," O'Brien said. (ESPN - Sarah Barshop)

FFToday's Take: The Texans activated him from the PUP list Tuesday, opening up a 21-day window before they must decide whether to add him to the active roster or place him on IR for the rest of the season. It sounds as if he has a lot of work to do to be ready to play in a game by then, meaning it will be difficult for him to contribute in any kind of meaningful way before Week 14. If he proves his health, it is possible he could share work with Lamar Miller near the end of the regular season.
Injury Adam Thielen limited again Thursday
Lower back, calf injuries
By: Doug Orth | Nov 15 2018, 7:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen limited for second straight day. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There appears to be no worry that Thielen will miss the game, but it's a bit concerning he is not coming off the bye week at 100 percent. Thielen has yet to miss a game in his four-year career and holds a slight lead over Michael Thomas as the overall WR1 in PPR formats.
Injury Marvin Jones misses practice Thursday
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 15 2018, 11:45 am

Detroit Lions
Lions practiced outside in the snow today. Still no Marvin Jones Jr., Michael Roberts or A’Shawn Robinson at the open portion of practice. (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones (knee) missed practice on Wednesday as well, making him questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The Lions are thin at receiver with Brandon Powell and T.J. Jones attempting to fill the slot position. Kenny Golladay is shaping up to be the primary receiving option in Week 11.
Injury Randall Cobb out for Week 11
Didn't make the trip to Seattle
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 14 2018, 11:45 am

Green Bay Packers
Four Packers not making the trip to Seattle - S Kentrell Brice, WR Randall Cobb, CB Kevin King and LB Nick Perry, who will not play Thursday night vs Seahawks, per @RobDemovsky. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Cobb out of the lineup due to a hamstring injury, Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be the main targets on the outside for Aaron Rodgers.
Injury Chris Carson expected to start
RBBC in Seattle
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 14 2018, 10:09 am

Seattle Seahawks
Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer wasn't any more revealing than Pete Carroll was about how much Rashaad Penny will factor into the Seahawks' offense after his breakout game. Schottenheimer said Chris Carson will continue to start, as expected, now that he's back from a one-game absence. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Carson back from his groin issue, Seattle is capable of rolling out three running backs at any time making this is a nightmare situation for fantasy owners. Carson, Mike Davis and Penny could all see significant snaps or be left out in the cold in Week 11. As it stands now, Carson is only trustworthy fantasy asset of the group.
NFL moves Rams-Chiefs game to Los Angeles
Poor field conditions in Mexico
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 13 2018, 4:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The NFL has decided to move Monday's game between the Chiefs and Rams from Mexico City to Los Angeles before of poor field conditions at Estadio Azteca, it was announced Tuesday. The issue is that soccer games and concerts have left the field inside Estadio Azteca a mess. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The league can't be too happy about this situation. This fiasco is a black eye in their attempts to broaden their brand outside of the US. The players who likely didn't want to go to Mexico in the first place are likely ecstatic about this.
Injury Stefon Diggs (rib) "knows" he will play in Week 11
Vikings WR practiced Monday with team
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 13 2018, 1:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) on Twitter: #Vikings WR Stefon Diggs tells me - on the RapSheet and Friends podcast - he practiced Monday with the team after sitting out vs. #Lions with a rib injury: "I know I will play" this week. Hear Diggs' highly entertaining interview when the pod drops Wed. (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Diggs sat out Week 9 and the Vikings Week 10 bye gave him another week to get healthy. He's a WR2 with WR1 upside facing the Bears on Sunday night. It's good news for Adam Thielen, who had his lowest yardage total of the season without Diggs in Week 9, and bad news for Laquon Treadwell owners, who have likely seen the end of his 2018 relevance.
Injury James Conner expected to practice Wednesday
Steelers bell cow RB shaking off head injury from Week 10
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 13 2018, 12:45 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
James Conner is expected to practice Wednesday per Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) on Twitter: "James Conner still in concussion protocol, but Mike Tomlin said he’ll be given an opportunity to practice tomorrow and that that should “lay those discussions to bed.” #Steelers (Translation: he needs to do some physical work to get out of the protocol, Wed is 1st day he can)" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Conner looks like he'll most likely suit up for Week 11, but Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels are possible additions if it looks like he takes a step back in the protocol.
Steelers' Jaylen Samuels arrow "pointing up"
Rookie RB lauded by Mike Tomlin
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Nov 13 2018, 12:41 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Joe Rutter (@tribjoerutter) on Mike Tomlin's thoughts regarding Jaylen Samuels on Twitter: Tomlin on Samuels: "I like his arrow, it's continually pointing up. ... He's met that point of the challenge." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We mentioned Samuels as a possible deep-league waiver wire addition, since he's getting some passing down work and Le'Veon Bell looks like he's holding out for the entirety of 2018. Now we have confirmation that the coaches feel like Samuels could be getting more snaps as the team moves on with its current options (including lead back James Conner, dealing with a concussion, and Stevan Ridley.
Injury Chris Carson likely to go in Week 11
Sidelined Week 10 with hip injury
By: Doug Orth | Nov 12 2018, 6:10 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll says in afternoon press conference that Chris Carson will be ready for Green Bay on Thursday. (Seattle Times - Bob Condotta)

FFToday's Take: Carson was a game-time decision for the Rams in Week 10, so this should not come as that much of a surprise. However, Carroll did not expand on what he expected in regards to the roles of Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny, so owners will have little clarity about using any of them on Thursday. At this point, all of them should be considered high-risk flex plays.
Injury Julian Edelman expected to be OK
Suffered ankle injury in Week 10
By: Doug Orth | Nov 12 2018, 6:05 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots’ WR Julian Edelman’s ankle injury is not considered serious and he's not expected miss much, if any, time, per source. Edelman will be monitored, but outlook for now appears positive. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Edelman entered the game with a foot or ankle issue. It did not appear as if he was in much pain when he left the game for good in the fourth quarter and the score out of hand. Owners at this point should expect Edelman to return after the team's Week 11 bye.
Injury Marvin Jones day to day with bone bruise
ACL and MCL are intact
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 12 2018, 1:30 pm

Detroit Lions
Tests showed that Lions’ WR Marvin Jones’ ACL and MCL are intact, but he did sustain a bone bruise and will be considered day to day, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones saw 7 targets resulting in 3 catches for 55 yards before leaving late in the third quarter. The Lions will be short-handed at receiver if he's not able to go in Week 11 against the Panthers.
Saints sign WR Brandon Marshall
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Nov 12 2018, 11:30 am

New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints went from a three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver to a six-timer Monday when they signed veteran Brandon Marshall to a one-year deal to replace Dez Bryant. Sean Payton confirmed the signing on Monday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Both Marshall and Bryant worked out for the Saints last Tuesday but with Bryant suffering an Achilles injury the Saints are taking a chance on Marshall as their big-bodied receiver. Marshall was released by the Seahawks in late October. He'll be a dart throw for fantasy owners looking for bench depth.
