    Adam Thielen Nov 25 12:40pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen's status for Week 12 against the Panthers remains up in the air after he tested positive for COVID-19. Head coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday that he doesn't know if Thielen will be cleared to play on Sunday. The team's top wideout was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Thielen also had a negative test. Further testing will determine if it was a false positive. Fantasy manager need to keep a close eye on this situation, as the 30-year-old wideout is a must-start if he's cleared after he scored two touchdowns in Week 11. Rookie Justin Jefferson would be quarterback Kirk Cousins' primary target if Thielen were to be ruled out.

    Kenny Stills Nov 25 12:30pm ET

    Houston Texans wide receivers Kenny Stills (quadriceps) and Randall Cobb (toe) have both been ruled out for the Thanksgiving game on Thursday against the Lions and will not travel with the team. Cobb is dealing with a significant toe injury and will miss several more games. With both Stills and Cobb out this Thursday, Keke Coutee should be elevated to three-receiver sets alongside Will Fuller V and Brandin Cooks. Coutee has just four catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in two games played this year, but he'll be a deep DFS sleeper on Thanksgiving against a very generous Lions Defense. Tight ends Darren Fells and Jordan Akins could see more targets as well, but the main beneficiaries should be Fuller and Cooks.

    Christian McCaffrey Nov 25 12:20pm ET

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) has arrived at practice on Wednesday and will work in a non-contact red jersey. It's progress for McCaffrey, but it was reported earlier this week that he's expected to miss the Week 12 game against the Vikings. The All-Pro running back hasn't been officially ruled out yet, though, so fantasy managers will need to continue checking on his progress in practice this week. McCaffrey, who has played in just three games this year due to shoulder and ankle injuries, could sit out another game with Carolina's bye coming in Week 13. The 24-year-old is on the wrong side of questionable right now. Mike Davis would be in line for a featured role once again if McCaffrey sits, making him a low-end RB1 for fantasy managers.

    Auden Tate Nov 25 12:10pm ET

    The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver Auden Tate and offensive guard/center B.J. Finney on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday. The Bengals reported that they had someone test positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, but they haven't disclosed exactly who that player was. Either way, both players availability for Week 12 against the Giants is in jeopardy this weekend. Tate has only 14 receptions on 20 targets for 150 yards in eight games in his third season with Cincinnati. The 23-year-old is not a fantasy option while behind wideouts Tyler Boyd, rookie Tee Higgins and veteran A.J. Green on the receiving depth chart, especially now that rookie quarterback Joe Burrow (knee) is out for the season.

    Cam Sims Nov 25 12:00pm ET

    Washington Football Team wide receivers Cam Sims and Steven Sims Jr have a good matchup on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys, but it's hard to trust either in fantasy. Steven Sims Jr caught a touchdown last week but racked up just 13 yards and only had three targets. Cam Sims put up a season-high with six targets two weeks ago, but only saw two looks last week and can't be trusted with his lack of volume. Dallas allows the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers so both players can be good dart throws in DFS, but season-long fantasy managers should be able to find a receiver with a higher target-floor.

    Terry McLaurin Nov 25 11:20am ET

    Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin (ankle) has been limited in practice ahead of a Thanksgiving rivalry game in Dallas but does not appear to be in danger of missing the game. McLaurin has been one of the safest receivers to start in fantasy as the second-year wideout has at least seven targets in every game this season. McLaurin torched this Cowboys secondary for 90 yards and a touchdown in Week seven and should see similar success Thursday. McLaurin is a must-start WR1 in all formats versus a Cowboys Defense that allows the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Nov 25 11:00am ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars Defense will be without three defensive coaches in Week 12 against the Browns, including defensive coordinator Todd Wash. Head coach Doug Marrone said that Wash was among those unavailable this week due to COVID-19 protocols. The entire defensive staff was not at the team facility on Tuesday as the team underwent contact tracing after positive COVID-19 tests. Secondary coach Joe Danna will call defensive plays against Cleveland. Special teams assistant Mike Mallory will run the defense during practices this week. An already bad Jacksonville defense just got worse, and on top of it they placed defensive end Josh Allen and cornerback D.J. Hayden on Injured Reserve on Tuesday. Stay far away from this defensive unit in fantasy against the Browns.

    Nick Foles Nov 25 10:50am ET

    The Chicago Bears are unsure if quarterback Nick Foles (hip), who is still in some pain, will be able to practice this week and play in Week 12 against the division-rival Packers. If Foles is healthy enough to suit up, he would presumably remain the starter under center. Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) has missed several games but is in fact healthy enough to play if he is needed. So it sounds as though it'll be either Foles or Trubisky going against Green Bay this weekend. Neither QB has been very good in real life or for fantasy managers in 2020, so those in leagues that start one quarterback can obviously avoid this situation. The Packers Defense is a solid streaming option for Week 12 against a Bears offense that has struggled mightily to move the football consistently all season.

    Mike Glennon Nov 25 10:50am ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to start quarterback Mike Glennon in Week 12 against the Browns, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Gardner Minshew II (thumb) is nearing full health, but it will be Glennon over both Minshew and rookie Jake Luton on Sunday against Cleveland. The biggest takeaway here is that the Browns Defense, which won't have star pass-rusher Myles Garrett or standout defensive back Denzel Ward this weekend, will remain a strong play against a Jacksonville team with one win and on their third QB of the season. Glennon, 30, hasn't started a game in the NFL since 2017 with the Bears and is nothing more than a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues. Make sure to downgrade all of Jacksonville's receivers as well.

    From RotoBaller

    Brandon Allen Nov 25 10:43am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen will start in Week 12 over QB Ryan Finley.

    Fantasy Spin: Avoid this situation altogether, and the Bengals' wide receivers like Tee Higgins and A.J. Green also take a hit.

    Brandon Allen Nov 25 10:40am ET

    The Cincinnati Bengals are planning to start quarterback Brandon Allen in Week 12 against the Giants with rookie Joe Burrow (knee) out for the rest of the season, according to sources. Allen was on the practice squad until the other day when he replaced Burrow on the roster. Ryan Finley, who entered the game last week against Washington, will back up Allen. The 28-year-old from Arkansas started three games for the Broncos in 2019 and threw for 515 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He'll primarily be a game manager, so he'll be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues. Receivers Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green need to be downgraded in the weekly and rest-of-season rankings. The Giants Defense will be an excellent fantasy play on Sunday.

    From RotoBaller

    Antonio Gibson Nov 25 10:30am ET

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson put up a career-high 128 rushing yards and a touchdown in his first taste of the Washington/Dallas rivalry and will look to spoil Thanksgiving for the Cowboys in a Week 12 showdown. Gibson has been on fire lately with five touchdowns in his last four games. Normally that would signal regression may be coming, but head coach Ron Rivera went out of his way this week to praise Gibson's tough running style and nose for the goal line implying Washington's first-year coach will keep feeding the rookie in the red zone. Gibson missed Monday's practice (ankle) but logged a full session on Tuesday so he should be all set to suit up Thursday. Start Gibson with confidence in all formats.

    From RotoBaller

    J.D. McKissic Nov 25 9:50am ET

    Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic let fantasy managers down last week but has a chance to bounce back on Thanksgiving in Dallas. McKissic saw an obscene 29 targets in his first two games with Alex Smith at quarterback but was not nearly as involved last week with just four targets and six carries. With fellow running back Antonio Gibson seeing twice as many touches last week, expect McKissic to be more involved with Washington playing on a short week. Double-digit touches should be the floor for McKissic making him a solid RB2 in seasonal leagues while being a strong value in DFS formats, especially those that use full-PPR scoring.

    From RotoBaller

    Mike Glennon Nov 25 9:13am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start in Week 12 for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Fantasy Spin: There's enough tape on Glennon to know that he's not worth starting in fantasy. If Gardner Minshew regains the job, he may have a matchup to use him. Otherwise, avoid this situation altogether.

    From TheHuddle

    Ryan Kerrigan Nov 25 9:00am ET

    The Washington Football Team defense has been an up and down unit for fantasy this season, but they are a strong-start on Thanksgiving against a banged-up Cowboys offense. Perennial Pro-Bowler Ryan Kerrigan and defensive rookie of the year candidate Chase Young should feast on an offensive line that will start several backups to protect Andy Dalton. Dallas has the second-worst turnover percentage in the NFL (18.6) percent making Washington a must-start option on Thursday.

    From RotoBaller

    Logan Thomas Nov 25 8:30am ET

    Washington Football Team tight end Logan Thomas has been playing better in recent weeks and is a start-worthy option for a Thanksgiving game in Dallas. Thomas has at least five targets in every game Alex Smith has started and played well in the first meeting with the Cowboys as he went for 60 yards and a touchdown. Thomas put up a dud last week with only six yards but he had 60-plus yards in two of the previous three games and should be more involved this week. Given the barren landscape of the tight end position in fantasy football, Thomas is a start-worthy option in a plus-matchup.

    From RotoBaller

    Alex Smith Nov 25 8:20am ET

    Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith has played well since taking over for Kyle Allen (ankle) and will look to keep rolling in a solid matchup with the Cowboys. Smith has thrown for 300-plus yards in two of his three starts and should be able to take advantage of a good matchup in Dallas. The Cowboys have allowed the second-most passing touchdowns this season and allow the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks overall. Smith offers almost no rushing upside so he's not a must-start fantasy option by any means, but he's a start-worthy option in two-quarterback leagues and a good low-cost DFS option.

    From RotoBaller

    Christian McCaffrey Nov 24 10:40pm ET

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) are both expected to get in some practice work on Wednesday as the team prepares for Week 12 against the Vikings. McCaffrey is expected to miss another game this weekend. However, Bridgewater is on track to play on Sunday if all goes well in practice the rest of the week. Minnesota's D has been a good matchup for quarterbacks all season long, but Bridgewater is a shaky low-end QB2 this week if he plays through his knee injury. McCaffrey still hasn't been ruled out for this weekend, but fantasy managers shouldn't get their hopes up. Mike Davis will be a strong RB2 play if he gets another start as the featured back for Carolina.

    From RotoBaller

    Mike White Nov 24 10:23pm ET

    Free-agent QB Mike White (Jets) was re-signed to the New York Jets' practice squad Tuesday, Nov. 24.

    From TheHuddle

    Pittsburgh Steelers Nov 24 9:20pm ET

    The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense will take on the Baltimore Ravens at home on Thanksgiving in Week 12. Pittsburgh's defense has been one of the top fantasy defenses in the league this season and will look to limit a Ravens offense that has not been nearly as explosive as it was in 2019. The Steelers are installed as 4.5-point home favorites in a game with a low 44.5-point over/under. Fantasy gamers can start the Steelers as a top-10 option in Week 12.
