Date Player
11/15/2018 Mike Williams, LAC, WR
Williams was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to a groin injury.

Analysis: The 2017 first-round pick's fantasy stock is plummeting anyway, as he's managed a paltry three catches over the last four games and had a goose-egg against the Raiders last week. Two of those three receptions did go for touchdowns, however.
11/15/2018 Keenan Allen, LAC, WR
Allen was added to the injury report Thursday after putting in a limited practice due to an ailing finger and hip.

Analysis: Allen's career has been marred by injuries, so it's not that surprising that the Chargers are monitoring their top receiver's practice reps. As of now there's no indication that he'll miss Sunday's game against the Broncos.
11/15/2018 Tyron Smith, Dal, T
Smith returned to a limited practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session with back spasms.

Analysis: The five-time Pro Bowl left tackle should tentatively be expected to play Sunday against the Falcons. The Cowboys also got standout right guard Zach Martin back at Thursday's practice after he missed Wednesday's workout with a knee injury.
11/15/2018 Jack Conklin, Ten, T
Conklin, who missed last week's game against New England with a concussion, returned to a full practice Thursday.

Analysis: Conklin, one of the league's better right tackles, looks on track to be cleared for Sunday's divisional game at Indianapolis.
11/15/2018 Mohamed Sanu, Atl, WR
Sanu returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session with a hip injury.

Analysis: Sanu will be fine to play Sunday against the Cowboys. The slot receiver has been quiet lately with 12 catches totaling 113 yards and no touchdowns over his last three games.
11/15/2018 Dustin Hopkins, Was, K
Hopkins is dealing with a groin injury and missed a second straight practice Thursday, putting his availability for Sunday's game against Houston into question.

Analysis: NFL.com reported that the Redskins worked out five kickers this week in the event Hopkins is forced to sit out. He's been among the league's top fantasy players at the position this season, having gone 17 of 19 on field goal attempts and making all 17 of his extra-point tries.
11/15/2018 Joe Mixon, Cin, RB
Mixon was added to the injury report after getting in a limited practice Thursday due to a knee injury.

Analysis: Mixon has been used heavily when healthy this season, so this may be a case of the Bengals just scaling back his reps to keep him fresh. Fantasy players should expect the second-year back to play Sunday at Baltimore, but this is obviously a situation to monitor.
11/15/2018 Lamar Jackson, Bal, QB
Jackson, a possibility to make his first NFL start Sunday against the Bengals, was held out of Thursday's practice due to a reported stomach issue.

Analysis: The illness likely won't prevent Jackson from being active this week, but the missed practice time may tip the scales in favor of Robert Griffin III starting in the event Joe Flacco (hip) is indeed held out. It's entirely possible that both Griffin and Jackson see plenty of time under center, but it's looking like a game-time call either way.
11/15/2018 Preston Brown, Cin, LB
Brown is dealing with a knee injury and did not practice for a second straight day Thursday.

Analysis: The starting linebacker probably won't play against the Ravens this week unless he's able to practice Friday. Cincinnati's beleaguered defense may be getting Vontaze Burfict back from a two-game absence, so there's one positive.
11/14/2018 Taywan Taylor, Ten, WR
Taylor, who missed last week's game against New England with a foot injury, sat out a second straight practice Thursday.

Analysis: With Taylor looking likely to sit out again this week, Corey Davis rates as a very strong fantasy option after going off for 125 yards and a touchdown on seven catches against the Patriots.
11/14/2018 Chris Godwin, TB, WR
Godwin (ankle) missed a second straight practice Thursday.

Analysis: Godwin didn't appear to be hurt when he recorded season highs of seven catches and 103 yards against the Redskins last week, but two straight missed practices puts his availability for Sunday's game against the Giants into question. Owners may get a better read on the situation when Friday's injury report comes out.
11/14/2018 Blake Martinez, GB, LB
The Packers have listed Martinez questionable for Thursday's game at Seattle due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Martinez was a limited practice participant on Tuesday and Wednesday, so odds are he'll play through the injury in an important game for Green Bay. The linebacker leads the team with 79 tackles to go along with four sacks.
11/14/2018 Nick Perry, GB, LB
Perry has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Seattle after he injured his knee in the Packers' Week 10 win over Miami.

Analysis: This was expected with the Packers playing on a short week. Perry has had a disappointing season thus far with 1 1/2 sacks in nine games. He totaled 18 over the previous two campaigns.
11/14/2018 Lavonte David, TB, LB
David's availability for Sunday's game against the Giants is in doubt after he sprained his knee in the Buccaneers' Week 10 loss to the Redskins. He was held out of practice Thursday for a second straight day.

Analysis: The Bucs' defense is already bad enough with David, who's remained a solid IDP candidate with a team-high 71 tackles through nine games. The linebacker's likely absence would further enhance Saquon Barkley's already strong fantasy profile.
11/14/2018 Adam Thielen, Min, WR
Thielen (back/calf) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: It's obviously noteworthy considering Thielen has been a top-tier fantasy receiver and the Vikings are coming off a bye. It would still be hard to envision Minnesota holding out one of their best players for this week's big showdown with the Bears, so consider this for now a case of the team just managing his reps.
11/14/2018 T.J. Lang, Det, G
The Lions have placed Lang on IR with a neck injury.

Analysis: An offensive line that's allowed an alarming 16 sacks over the last two weeks may have just gotten worse, as Lang is a quality right guard when healthy. His absence won't help Matthew Stafford as the quarterback tries to break out of his recent slump.
11/14/2018 K.J. Wright, Sea, LB
Wright (knee) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: Wright still isn't completely back from a knee scope he underwent in late August and the Seahawks won't push him on a short week. The linebacker, who's played in only three of Seattle's first nine games, should be good to go for the team's Week 12 matchup with Carolina.
11/14/2018 Jordy Nelson, Oak, WR
Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Nelson will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona. The veteran wide receiver suffered a bone bruise to his knee in last week's game.

Analysis: Though he's been unsurprisingly underwhelming in his first season in Oakland, Nelson's potential absence would leave the Raiders very thin at wide receiver with Martavis Bryant already ruled out with a knee injury. Oakland may have to roll with Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts this weekend.
11/14/2018 D'Onta Foreman, Hou, RB
Foreman will practice Wednesday for the first time since tearing his Achilles tendon last November. He's been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of this season.

Analysis: The Texans will have a three-week window to either add Foreman to the active roster or keep him on PUP for the remainder of the season. As a rookie in 2017, the former Texas standout averaged 4.2 yards on 78 rush attempts as the main backup to Lamar Miller.
11/12/2018 Nick Mullens, SF, QB
Nick Mullens was 27 of 39 for 250 yards and threw one touchdown pass Monday in the San Francisco 49ers' 27-23 loss to the New York Giants. He threw two interceptions, didn't fumble and was not sacked. Mullens added one rushing yard on two carries.
