Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Rays quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) has not been cleared to throw by the medical staff and will be out at least through Week 12 against the Falcons, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. It's not looking like Winston will be available to start the fantasy playoffs in most leagues in Week 14, so he's certainly a drop candidate in redraft formats. Backup Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't been pretty, but he's led Tampa to two straight wins and will once again be a QB2 option in the divisional matchup with Atlanta.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has stated that quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start until fellow quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) is fully healthy. Gabbert had a decent week last week in place of Stanton. Both quarterbacks have proven to be similar options to lead the Cardinals offense, making them low-end QB2s with weekly streaming upside, depending on the matchup. Gabbert won't be one to trust in Week 12 against the stingy Jaguars secondary.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown is likely to miss time with turf toe, head coach Bruce Arians has explained. While it remains to be seen how much time the injury-plagued receiver will miss, this is concerning news for fantasy owners as Brown can't seem to shake the injury bug and hasn't been able to for the last two years. Brown is a WR3/4 with a low floor regardless of his injury status.
Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott is in the NFL's concussion protocol after being forced to leave Sunday night's game after the opening kickoff. The Eagles placed kicker Caleb Sturgis on injured reserve earlier this year and the assumption was that he would not be brought back thanks to the success of Elliott. With the rookie kicker now potentially not available though, the Eagles could decide to bring back Sturgis for the rest of the season. That decision will depend on how Elliott progresses through the protocol early this week.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terrelle Pryor (ankle) is undergoing ankle surgery. It's an exploratory procedure, so the timeline will be better understood once it is complete. In what has been an absolute disaster season for Pryor, we can at least consider the possibility that he has been playing through an ankle injury as an explanation for his lack of production. Whatever the explanation, Pryor hasn't been roster worthy for at least a month now, if not longer. Josh Doctson should continue to play the role of the Redskins primary deep threat.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett (concussion) is still in the league's concussion protocol after taking a hit to the head back in Week 10, but head coach Chuck Pagano still expects him to suit up against the Tennessee Titans in Week 12. Brissett has been a serviceable streaming option in recent weeks and draws a readily favorable matchup against Tennessee's lackluster pass defense, but his game time status should be monitored for fantasy owners looking to start him. He should be ranked as a QB2 with low-end QB1 upside.
The Chicago Bears waived place kicker Connor Barth on Monday and signed free-agent Cairo Santos (groin) to a one-year deal in a corresponding move, according to an NFL source. Barth was cut after missing a 46-yard field goal in Week 11 that would've sent the game against the Lions to overtime. Santos had been put on Injured Reserve Sept. 30 by the Chiefs, but he appears to be healed now and will serve as Chicago's kicker for the final six games of the season. Santos had been 3-for-3 on field goals and perfect in his six extra points in the first three weeks with KC. Santos is an 88.6 percent field goal kicker in the NFL and should immediately be on the streaming radar at the position.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas (knee) practiced Monday and is eligible to come off Injured Reserve this week. Although the team has three weeks to activate him, head coach Mike Mularkey said it could come as early as this week. Douglas' return will add depth to Tennessee's receiving room, but it's likely too crowded as it is for Douglas to carve out a fantasy-significant role to close out the year.
Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase confirmed that quarterback Jay Cutler (concussion) is in the concussion protocol after taking a hit in the Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers. Cutler was atrocious in the first half before suffering his head injury, tossing three interceptions. Miami's offense has been stuck in the mud with Cutler all season long, so perhaps a return to Matt Moore would help them. Even so, Gase is unlikely to bench Cutler if he's cleared by the league. Cutler remains an unattractive QB2 if he's playing in Week 12.
Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (foot) plans to play in Week 12 against the Jets. Olsen returned to practice Monday, and barring any setbacks, should be good to go for the first time since breaking his foot in the middle of September. He should return to being a top option in the passing game as a TE1. Scoop him up immediately if he's still on your league's waiver wire.
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson told the media on Monday that he is committed to rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer as his starter for the rest of the season. Jackson told reporters, "Let's let him play this thing out" when asked whether Kizer would remain under center for the Browns. Jackson also vowed to stick with Kizer over the final six games of the season after benching him mid-game twice already this season. Kizer has struggled in his rookie season, throwing an NFL-leading 14 interceptions, three more than second-place Joe Flacco. The Browns will be looking for their first win of the season in Week 12 when they take on the Bengals in Cincinnati.
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not suffer ligament damage to his knee in Week 11, but he is still undergoing further evaluation, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee) suffered a scary knee injury in his Week 11 matchup against the Chargers that caused him to exit the game and not return. However, he received good news on Monday, as head coach Sean McDermott reported that Benjamin did not suffer any ligament damage. That said, Benjamin is still being evaluated and the degree and extent of any injury is unclear at this point in the week. For those rostering Benjamin, it seems that the safest path will be to plan that he will not available in Week 12, though that could change as the week wears on.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum is now 6-2 as a starter in 2017 after leading his team to a big win over the Rams in Week 11, and head coach Mike Zimmer admitted "it's going to be hard to yank him out of there right now." Keenum went 27-for-38 for 280 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Despite plenty of risky throws with a gunslinger do-or-die mentality, Keenum is right for the Vikings right now and is getting the job done. He's also a perfect fit in the current offense and has shown excellent trust and chemistry with his receivers, most notably Adam Thielen. Keenum is probably no better than a midrange QB for fantasy owners and doesn't possess the upside of Teddy Bridgewater, but it looks like he'll remain the starter in Minnesota until he comes back to earth or is injured, Bridgewater remains a stash in deeper and two-QB leagues.
Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (foot), who is expected to return in Week 12, is suited up and ready to practice Monday. Olsen hasn't played since breaking his foot Sept. 17 against the Bills, but he should immediately return to being one of quarterback Cam Newton's top options in the passing game if he's cleared for this weekend. Olsen should be owned in all leagues, so double check your waiver wires to make sure he's not still available.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) hasn't been cleared by doctors to resume throwing. He will be evaluated by the team Monday, but it will most likely be another week or two before he's ready to return to action. The Bucs are playing it safe and taking it slow with Winston, especially after backup Ryan Fitzpatrick has led the club to two straight wins. Winston was having a disappointing fantasy season as it was, and his owners shouldn't feel loyalty towards hanging onto him from here on out in shallow leagues.
Indianapolis Colts S Clayton Geathers (neck) is expected to make his season debut in Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.
Indianapolis Colts LB John Simon (neck) is expected to return from a three-game absence in Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that the team was still evaluating its options at the quarterback position. This comes a week after McDermott made the curious decision of benching Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman. After Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half of his first NFL start, Taylor relieved him and performed well. While the passing game in Buffalo was never prolific, if Peterman remains the starter, all Bills pass catchers should be avoided.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury late in the Week 11 loss to the Vikings and left the locker room with a sling on his left arm. Head coach Sean McVay is uncertain of the severity of Woods' injury. Before the injury, Woods was able to catch eight passes for 81 yards, and he currently leads the team with 47 catches for 703 yards and four touchdowns. Woods has morphed into the No. 1 target for Jared Goff in LA's high-octane offense, so losing him for any stretch would be a big blow. Keep an eye on his practice status this week and reports on the significance of his injury. If he were to miss time, it'd be good news for rookie Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins, although it could hurt Goff's upside.
