Fantasy Football Daily Rundown: Wednesday, Nov. 27

by KFFL Staff on November 27, 2013 @ 08:30:15 PDT



QB | Jason Campbell | Cleveland Browns | Injury, Fantasy
Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Nov. 27, and is unlikely to play in Week 13. QB Brandon Weeden is likely to start.

QB | Matt Flynn | Green Bay Packers | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz is preparing his game to face either Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers or QB Matt Flynn, or even QB Scott Tolzien although most media reports have Flynn definitely starting the game on Thursday, Nov. 28. "We have game plans ready for all those different things," Schwartz said. "Whatever quarterback they throw out there, we'll be ready. We've looked at all three of them that have potential to be able to play in this game."

QB | Mike Glennon | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano believes QB Mike Glennon is the long-term answer at quarterback for the team. "I think this is a guy that certainly, as long as he continues on this trajectory, is a guy you'd love to have as a quarterback for a long time," Schiano said. Glennon has excelled in his rookie year at protecting the football and completing passes downfield. He leads all rookies with 13 touchdown passes. The Bucs have won three straight and Glennon has thrown at least one touchdown in eight straight games, the longest streak for a rookie passer since Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson did it in nine straight last year.

Glennon has looked very calm and collected in the face of a lost season for the Bucs in his rookie season. That's been pretty impressive. He's a low-end QB1 and a solid backup option to have.

QB | Joe Flacco | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco clearly expressed that he's not a fan of the team running the wildcat formation. Flacco was lined up out wide for a few plays during the team's Week 12 win over the New York Jets. "I don't like that stuff. I think it makes you look like a high school offense. That's my opinion," Flacco said. He doesn't expect the team to use the wildcat for the rest of the year.

QB | Robert Griffin III | Washington Redskins | Injury
San Francisco 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks does not think Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III should be playing in games right now due to his knee injury from last season. "He's a man, he has the heart of a warrior and is going to go out there and play regardless of the circumstance," Brooks told CSN Washington. "Everybody can see it. Everybody can see it. He shouldn't be playing."

QB | Michael Vick | Philadelphia Eagles | Depth Chart Tidbit
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick said he is not disappointed about not being named the starting quarterback now that he is fully healthy.

QB | Mark Sanchez | New York Jets | Injury
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) said he loves being a Jet and plans on returning in 2014. "It's been a dream come true to play here, and I don't want to go anywhere else," Sanchez said Tuesday. "I know I have two years left [on his contract -- it's actually three], and I don't ever want that to end. I love being a Jet, and I plan on being here."

QB | Nick Foles | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury, Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will practice in full Tuesday, Nov. 26. Head coach Chip Kelly said he will back up QB Nick Foles in Week 13. Kelly said Foles doesn't need to look over his shoulder and should have a "desire to excel, not fear of failure."

Not a big surprise here. Vick isn't worth owning right now, and Foles remains a low-end No. 1 fantasy QB.

Running Back

RB | Le'Veon Bell | Pittsburgh Steelers | Fantasy
The Pittsburgh Steelers are impressed with RB Le'Veon Bell's awareness on the field and his work ethic. He has earned their trust to pick up blitzes and knows the offense well.

RB | Maurice Jones-Drew | Jacksonville Jaguars | Transaction, Fantasy
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said Tuesday, Nov. 26, in a radio interview that there is a "realistic possibility" of RB Maurice Jones-Drew remaining with the team after this season.

RB | Darren McFadden | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26.

McFadden has been limited the last two days and will probably be questionable for Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. If he's playing, he should probably be in your lineup with the nice matchup. If not, Rashad Jennings is also a solid play.

RB | Stevan Ridley | New England Patriots | Fantasy
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels still has confidence in RB Stevan Ridley. "I have great confidence in Stevan [Ridley] as a runner ... at the same time, ball security is the most important factor," McDaniels said.

Wide Receiver

WR | Anquan Boldin | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin's two touchdown catches Monday, Nov. 25, gave him eight all-time on "Monday Night Football," which is the most of any active player. The 49ers have one more Monday night game, Dec. 23, when they host the Atlanta Falcons in Candlestick Park's regular-season finale.

WR | Michael Crabtree | San Francisco 49ers | Transaction, Fantasy
The San Francisco 49ers waived QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson off the 53-man roster to make room for WR Michael Crabtree on the active lineup.

WR | Calvin Johnson | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) said Tuesday, Nov. 26, that his knee is "getting better," and that he does not anticipate it being an issue on short rest in the Week 13 game against the Green Packers Thursday, Nov. 28.

WR | Dez Bryant | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) practiced in full Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Bryant is a strong play as a WR1 against a porous Oakland Raiders secondary.

WR | Miles Austin | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) practiced in full Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Austin had just one catch and three targets in his first game back in Week 12. If you're playing him Thursday against the Oakland Raiders, it should only be in a flex spot in very deep leagues.

WR | Denarius Moore | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) is not participating in the portion of practice open to the media Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Whether Moore plays on Turkey Day will come down to what he does tomorrow, but it's not looking good. Plan to be without him. Rod Streater and Mychal Rivera will get more looks in the passing game if he doesn't play again.

Tight End

TE | Mychal Rivera | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders S Tyvon Branch (ankle), DE Jason Hunter (foot) and OT Menelik Watson (illness) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 26. LB Kevin Burnett (quadriceps), CB Mike Jenkins (concussion), LB Kaluka Maiava (ribs), LB Sio Moore (shoulder), DT Daniel Muir (knee) and TE Mychal Rivera (concussion) were limited.

TE | Brandon Bostick | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers TE Brandon Bostick (concussion), RB Johnathan Franklin (concussion, neck), LB Jamari Lattimore (quadriceps) and DE C.J. Wilson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 26. OT Don Barclay (knee) and LB Nick Perry (foot, ankle) were limited. DT Johnny Jolly (groin), DE Mike Neal (abdomen), OT Marshall Newhouse (shoulder), CB Sam Shields (hamstring) and OG Josh Sitton (back) practiced in full.

TE | Heath Miller | Pittsburgh Steelers | Fantasy
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Defensive Line

DL | DeMarcus Ware | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring), LB Justin Durant (hamstring), WR Dwayne Harris (hamstring) and LB Sean Lee (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 26. DT Jason Hatcher (neck), LB DeVonte Holloman (neck) and DE DeMarcus Ware (thigh) were limited. DT Nick Hayden (ribs), DE George Selvie (shoulder) and S J.J. Wilcox (knee) practiced in full.


LB | Tamba Hali | Kansas City Chiefs | Injury, Fantasy
Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (ankle) is dealing with a slight ankle sprain but could still sit out Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

LB | Justin Houston | Kansas City Chiefs | Injury, Fantasy
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston's (elbow) MRI exam was delayed Monday, Nov. 25, because he had too much swelling in his elbow. Houston had his arm bound in a sling Monday.


CB | Antoine Winfield | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Seattle Seahawks are still talking with free agent CB Antoine Winfield (Seahawks), and there is a chance he could come out of retirement, although it may not happen immediately.

Strong Safety

SS | Troy Polamalu | Pittsburgh Steelers | Injury, Fantasy
Pittsburgh Steelers OT Marcus Gilbert (ankle), S Troy Polamalu (non-injury) and LB LaMarr Woodley (calf) were limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26. DE Brett Keisel (foot), LB Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and S Shamarko Thomas (ankle) practiced in full.

Free Safety

FS | Michael Griffin | Tennessee Titans | Transaction
Tennessee Titans FS Michael Griffin's one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Nov. 26.
