    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Noah Brown

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    From TheHuddle

    Mike Glennon Dec 8 4:10pm ET
    Mike Glennon

    New York Giants quarterback Mike Glennon (concussion) only worked on a side field during practice on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Daniel Jones (neck) continued to be limited after missing last week's game. Jones is unlikely to return in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers, so if Glennon cannot clear the league's concussion protocol, it will be Jake Fromm making his first NFL start on Sunday. If that's the case, fantasy managers may want to avoid all of the Giants offensive weapons in fantasy. Just last week, Fromm was getting repetitions on the Buffalo Bills practice squad. No matter how New York's QB situation shakes out this week, the Chargers defense will be a strong play in fantasy. Glennon went 23-for-44 for 187 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

    Tee Higgins Dec 8 4:00pm ET
    Tee Higgins

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (ankle) wasn't seen at the portion of practice open to the media on Wednesday. Higgins picked up an ankle injury in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but he managed to score a touchdown for the second straight week and put up over 100 yards receiving for the second straight week with a season-high 138 yards on 14 targets and nine receptions. Higgins' ankle injury isn't believed to be serious, but fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his practice status over the next couple of days. As long as he returns and is active on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, he should be a locked-in WR2 in fantasy. Rookie Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd would have higher ceilings if Higgins was unable to play.

    From RotoBaller

    Joe Mixon Dec 8 4:00pm ET
    Joe Mixon

    Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that running back Joe Mixon (illness) is out sick on Wednesday. Mixon injured his neck in the second half of the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but he returned to the contest and the injury isn't an issue heading into Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. Those that roster Mixon may want to snag Samaje Perine off the waiver wire as insurance, but as long as Mixon returns to practice at some point this week, he should be good to go and would be a high-end RB1 against a Niners defense that has been a top-10 matchup in terms of fantasy points per week to the RB position all year.

    From RotoBaller

    Saquon Barkley Dec 8 3:53pm ET
    Saquon Barkley

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 8. The Giants did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

    Fantasy Spin: Barkley is back on the injury report, so fantasy players will need monitor the situation over the next few days. He will see plenty of touches if he plays and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

    From TheHuddle

    Sterling Shepard Dec 8 3:53pm ET
    Sterling Shepard

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 8. The Giants did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

    Fantasy Spin: Shepard returned to practice last week and may have a chance to be in uniform in Week 14. Fantasy players will know more about the situation later in the week, but he could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues if he plays.
