  • Player Notes
    Pat Freiermuth Dec 8 5:40pm ET
    Pat Freiermuth

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will suit up against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14's Thursday Night Football contest. Freiermuth had a six-game streak of at least 8.1 PPR fantasy points broken in his three-catch, 26-yard dud against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13. He will look to bounce back in a tough matchup against a Minnesota defense that is allowing the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Despite the tough matchup, Freiermuth's recent production speaks for itself at a position where it can be tough to come by fantasy points, leaving him as a low-end TE1 for Week 14.

    Diontae Johnson Dec 8 5:30pm ET
    Diontae Johnson

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is in the midst of a hot streak as he has caught 24 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns over his past three games. He will suit up against the Minnesota Vikings on the road in Week 14's Thursday Night Football contest. Johnson finds himself in a smash spot against a Minnesota secondary that is allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Fantasy gamers should lock Johnson into starting lineups as a no-brainer WR1 in Week 14.

    Chase Claypool Dec 8 5:30pm ET
    Chase Claypool

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is listed without an injury designation after getting in a full practice on Wednesday. Claypool will suit up against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14's Thursday Night Football game. The second-year wideout has been playing through a toe injury over the past few weeks, although it will not prevent him from taking the field on Thursday in a plus matchup against Minnesota. Claypool has a chance to have a big game as the Vikings are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in 2021. Although he has just one touchdown on the year, Claypool has been reasonably productive of late as he has at least 52 receiving yards in each of his past three games. Treat him as a solid WR3 for Week 14.

    Najee Harris Dec 8 5:20pm ET
    Najee Harris

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has been held out of the end zone for two straight games as opposing defenses have done a nice job shutting him down of late. He will look to bounce back in Week 14's Thursday Night Football contest against the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota is allowing the 12th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in 2021. Harris has been slumping a bit of late but he remains one of the safest bets for a heavy rushing workload in the league and his receiving prowess keeps his fantasy floor high. Treat Harris as a top-five fantasy running back in Week 14.

    Anthony Barr Dec 8 5:10pm ET
    Anthony Barr

    Minnesota Vikings linebackers Eric Kendricks (biceps) and Anthony Barr (hamstring, knee) both practiced in full on Wednesday and were removed from the final injury report for Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday. Kendricks and Barr will return after the Week 13 loss to the Detroit Lions. Barr has missed six games this year due to injury, but he's been effective when on the field with 32 tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery. Kendricks enters Week 14 action as the fifth-ranked IDP linebacker thanks to 63 tackles, four sacks, four passes defensed, two interceptions and a fumble recovery in 11 games. Return him to your starting lineups if he's on your roster.

    Ben Roethlisberger Dec 8 5:00pm ET
    Ben Roethlisberger

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got in a full practice on Wednesday and was removed from the injury report ahead of his team's Thursday night game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14. Roethlisberger draws a plus matchup against a Vikings defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks in 2021. Big fantasy weeks have been few and far between for Roethlisberger this season but he does have some upside against a Minnesota offense that can put plenty of points on the board. Treat Roethlisberger as a mid-range QB2 in fantasy for Week 14.

    From RotoBaller

    Dalvin Cook Dec 8 5:00pm ET
    Dalvin Cook

    Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden (foot) missed practice all week and will miss the Week 14 game on Thursday night against the Minnesota Vikings. It will be the fourth straight game that Haden has missed. The Steelers will miss their 32-year-old cornerback, but the Steelers defense/special teams might be worth throwing in your starting fantasy lineups this week as a streamer while going up against a Vikings offense that won't have wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) and could be without their star running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) for a second straight game. Star linebacker T.J. Watt is healthy and can wreck an offensive game plan almost single-handedly.

    From RotoBaller

    Mike Williams Dec 8 4:50pm ET
    Mike Williams

    The Los Angeles Chargers placed wide receiver Mike Williams and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday. Receiver Keenan Allen is also on the COVID-19 list, so the Chargers could be down their top two receivers this weekend against the New York Giants. If both Williams and Allen are vaccinated, they could be cleared to return if they are asymptomatic and return two negative tests 24 hours apart before Sunday's game. However, fantasy managers can't count on that and should prepare to be without them just in case. Jalen Guyton, who caught his first touchdown of the year last week, is now a hot waiver-wire pickup as a plug-and-play option if both Williams and Allen don't get cleared. Rookie Josh Palmer would serve as the No. 2, while tight ends Jared Cook and Donald Parham would see more targets as well.

    From RotoBaller

    Ezekiel Elliott Dec 8 4:43pm ET
    Ezekiel Elliott

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 8.

    Fantasy Spin: Elliott has been held to under 50 rushing yards in each of the last four games but has been involved in the passing game during those games. He should see plenty of touches this week and can be at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

    From TheHuddle

    Noah Brown Dec 8 4:43pm ET
    Noah Brown

    Dallas Cowboys WR Noah Brown (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 8. WR Cedrick Wilson (ankle) was limited during practice.

    From TheHuddle

    Mike Williams Dec 8 4:43pm ET
    Mike Williams

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Dec. 8.

    Fantasy Spin: Williams probably will miss the Week 14 game since it is only a few days away. Jalen Guyton may be the main option in the passing game if Williams and Keenan Allen are not able to play and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

    From TheHuddle

    Alvin Kamara Dec 8 4:30pm ET
    Alvin Kamara

    New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (knee) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and is expected to play in Week 14 against the New York Jets. Kamara has been out since Week 9, but all signs are pointing toward him having a full workload this weekend, especially with veteran Mark Ingram II on the COVID-19 list. Despite the long layoff due to his knee injury, Kamara will be a must-start RB1 in his return against a Jets defense that has allowed the third-most rushing yards per game (133.4) and the most fantasy points per game to RBs in 2021. If Ingram isn't cleared by Sunday's game, expect Ty Montgomery and Tony Jones Jr. to spell Kamara in his return.

    Taysom Hill Dec 8 4:30pm ET
    Taysom Hill

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill (finger) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. It confirms an earlier report that he was in line to play in Week 14 against the New York Jets despite suffering from mallet finger in last Thursday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Hill won't need surgery on his finger, but that doesn't mean that the 31-year-old will be very accurate throwing the football the rest of the season. Luckily, he'll be facing a Jets defense that just isn't good. They've allowed the fourth-most passing yards per game (263.4), although they've allowed the third-fewest rushing yards to QBs. Hill isn't valuable for his arm. He should run enough to be a low-end QB1 after going for 101 yards on 11 attempts in his first start of the year last week.

    From RotoBaller

    J.D. McKissic Dec 8 4:23pm ET
    J.D. McKissic

    Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 8.

    Fantasy Spin: McKissic still needs to pass the concussion tests to play, so his status for Week 14 is uncertain. He can be at least a flex option when healthy, but fantasy players will need a backup plan ready in case he sits again.

    From TheHuddle

    Curtis Samuel Dec 8 4:23pm ET
    Curtis Samuel

    Washington Football Team WR Curtis Samuel (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 8.

    Fantasy Spin: Samuel received only two touches in the last game and finished with negative two yards. He is still working his way back from the injury but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

    From TheHuddle

    Landon Collins Dec 8 4:23pm ET
    Landon Collins

    Washington Football Team S Landon Collins (foot), LB Jamin Davis (concussion) and OG Wes Schweitzer (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 8. DT Jonathan Allen (groin), LB Jordan Kunaszyk (hamstring), C Tyler Larsen (knee) and OG Brandon Scherff (knee) were limited during practice.

    Kenny Golladay Dec 8 4:20pm ET
    Kenny Golladay

    New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay (ribs) was moving gingerly during individual drills on Wednesday and went to a side field to work with trainers. He was officially listed as a non-practice participant. The Giants receivers are pretty much all injured, which is nothing new for 2021. Rookie Kadarius Toney (oblique, quadriceps) missed another practice, and Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) hasn't played since Week 8. If quarterback Mike Glennon is able to return from his concussion with Daniel Jones (neck) likely out, he might not have many good options to throw the ball to. This entire Giants offense is stuck in the mud, and their injury situation hasn't helped. Golladay had three catches for 37 yards before leaving the game last Sunday. Darius Slayton is one of the only healthy Giants receivers.

    From RotoBaller

    Kadarius Toney Dec 8 4:20pm ET
    Kadarius Toney

    New York Giants rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney (oblique, quadriceps) missed another practice session on Wednesday and only worked on a side field with trainers. Toney has missed the last two games, and it's looking like Sterling Shepard (quadriceps), who hasn't played since Week 8, is closer to returning than Toney. Kenny Golladay (ribs) is hurt again and is in danger of missing Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend. What's new for the Giants this year? Fantasy managers shouldn't be relying on Toney this weekend, even if he's active, with either Mike Glennon (concussion) or Jake Fromm expected to make the start under center at quarterback. Darius Slayton is one of the few healthy wideouts for this team.

    From RotoBaller

    Mike Glennon Dec 8 4:20pm ET
    Mike Glennon

    The New York Giants are "optimistic" that quarterback Mike Glennon (head) will be cleared from the league's concussion protocol and be ready to play against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, according to head coach Joe Judge. Glennon will start this weekend if he clears the protocol. He wasn't able to practice on Wednesday, but he still has a few more days to gain clearance. Daniel Jones (neck) remains limited in practice, but he's expected to miss a second straight game and has yet to be cleared for contact in practices. If Glennon isn't cleared, Jake Fromm would make his first career NFL start. The Chargers defense is a very strong streaming option in fantasy in Week 14, especially considering how beat up New York's receivers are as well.

    From RotoBaller

    Mark Ingram Dec 8 4:13pm ET
    Mark Ingram

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Fantasy Spin: Ingram's status for Week 14 is in question since the game is only a few days away. Fantasy players can monitor the situation but may need to look for other options in their lineups.
