Howdy Folks,

Welcome to Friday. I hope your Thanksgiving was great and we've got some News and Notes for you. Let's get to it.

1. SEA - RB Mike Davis practices Thursday

Source: NFLCommunications.com

Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22. The Seahawks did not hold a practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Davis is the closer for the Seahawks. They'll use a RBBC for the most part with Chris Carson as the lead back and Rashaad Penny mixing in. Davis is a RB5/deep flex against the Panthers in Week 12.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

Fitzgerald is ready to go against the Chargers on Sunday. He's a WR2 for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.

3. BUF - QB Josh Allen practices in full

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Allen is back for the Bills this week as their starter. Dynasty GMs should be monitoring his progress but he's not worthy of plugging into redraft leagues...even start 2QB leagues.

4. OAK - Limited practice for WR Jordy Nelson

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Nelson missed the Week 11 game against the Cardinals but he should be back this week. Fantasy GMs should only consider Nelson a deep 'what the heck' flex in Week 12 against the Ravens.

5. OAK - RB Doug Martin limited again

Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Martin is going to be splitting time in the backfield with Deandre Washington and Jalen Richard. We like him as a RB4 or deep flex play in Week 12 against the Ravens.

6. CLE - TE David Njoku listed as limited

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Njoku should be able to play in Week 12 against the Bengals. Tight end has been a brutal position this year, so Njoku is a low-end TE1 even though he's banged up.

7. CIN - WR A.J. Green sits again

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Reports indicate that Green could play on Sunday against the Browns...but we'll feel more positive about his availability if he can practice (even if he's limited) at some point this week. Watch to see if he can finally practice on Friday.

8. TEN - Limited practice for QB Marcus Mariota

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Mariota is no lock to play on Monday night against the Texans. Monitor his progress the rest of the week, but we should have a much better idea about his availability on Saturday. The Titans would turn to Blaine Gabbert if Mariota can't play.

9. NYJ - RB Elijah McGuire on the field

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Jets are playing against the Patriots in Week 12. McGuire could get plenty of work as a receiving option out of the backfield this week. That makes him a deep flex option for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.

10. NYJ - RB Isaiah Crowell fully practices

New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Crowell is ready to go against the Patriots on Sunday. He's a RB4 or flex option for Fantasy GMs..and if (when) the Jets fall behind they won't be able to run the ball much with Crowell.

11. GB - QB Aaron Rodgers practices in full

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Rodgers has to try and get the Packers out of this funk, with a 4-5-1 record they head to play the Vikings in Week 12. The matchup makes him more of a low-end QB1 for Fantasy GMs this week.

12. GB - TE Jimmy Graham a limited participant

Source: The Athletic - Michael Cohen

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (thumb, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Graham wants to play this week against the Vikings. It looks like he should be available but Graham has certainly burned Fantasy GMs this year. He's a low-end TE2 because of his role and the matchup.

13. MIN - WR Adam Thielen remains limited

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back, calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Thielen has been limited in practice all week long. He should be able to play against the Packers, and Thielen is a WR1 for Fantasy GMs even though he was limited.

14. PIT - QB Ben Roethlisberger takes part in practice

Source: Steelers.com - Teresa Varley

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Roethlisberger is good to go for the Sunday game on the road against the Broncos. That defense can get after the passer, but Roethlisberger is one of the least-sacked QBs in 2018. He's a QB1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 12.

15. NYJ - QB Sam Darnold out of practice again

Source: ESPNNewYork.com - Rich Cimini

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (foot) is out of practice again Thursday, Nov. 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

It looks like the Jets are going to be without Darnold again. That makes Josh McCown the starter for the Jets as they play the Patriots in Week 12.

16. DET - WR Marvin Jones could be back next week

Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) could return for Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Jones has now missed two games for the Lions as he deals with this bone bruise. We'll monitor his progress next week during practice.
