Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (hamstring) on Friday, Nov. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

Chris Conley will get more targets with Shenault out if last week's distribution of passes is any indication, although high winds in Green Bay could lower his ceiling.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) on Friday, Nov. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

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

Kalen Ballage, Troymaine Pope (maybe), and Joshua Kelley will split the work, so they are all desperation plays with upside unless we get more clarity about how the workload will be split up.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) said Friday, Nov. 13, that he's 'absolutely' ready to return and play a full game Sunday against the New York Giants.

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

Sanders is a back to being a high ceiling RB1 and should be in lineups everywhere.

Baltimore Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Nov. 13, according to head coach John Harbaugh, after sitting out the previous day.

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

Ingram will be a what the heck flex against the tired Patriots run defense, but hurt the value of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards this week.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) on Friday, Nov. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

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

McCaffrey has a chance to play next week. Wednesday's practice should be a good indicator of where he is at. Mike Davis is a PPR Special RB2 against the brick wall Bucs run defense this week.

6. GB - Allen Lazard a game-time decision?

Source: ESPN.com - Rob Demovsky

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (core), who has yet to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list, is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 10 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Matt LaFleur.

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

If Lazard is out Marquez Valdes-Scantling becomes a better play, but the deep passing game could be quiet if the forecasted winds in Green Bay on Sunday live up to billing.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) will be listed as doubtful for Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

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

Giovani Bernard should get another start and he'll be considered a fantasy RB2 against the Steelers, with more upside in PPR leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to be activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, Nov. 14, and participate in an extended walk-through with teammates after missing the week of practice, head coach Mike Tomlin said Friday.

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

Fingers crossed here for Roethlisberger and the Steelers.

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle, chest) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

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

Harris isn't a good play this weekend against the Ravens, but if he can't go Sunday night, Rex Burkhead will move up an RB2 level play.

10. MIA - Miami's Week 10 injury report

Source: MiamiDolphins.com

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 10 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. CB Jamal Perry (foot) and TE Durham Smythe (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 13, and are also listed as questionable. S Kavon Frazier (shoulder), CB Byron Jones (Achilles), RB Patrick Laird (ankle), DE Shaq Lawson (shoulder) and TE Adam Shaheen (shoulder) practiced in full all week and have been removed from the injury report. DT Raekwon Davis (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Friday after missing practice one day earlier but is expected to be available.

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

Breida will be a game time decision, but even if he does play, he's no sure thing to finish the game. There's no Dolphins back worth trusting against the Chargers.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne is expected to be activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Nov. 13, and he's eligible to play in Week 10.

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

This takes some of the edge off of Richie James opportunity this week against the Saints, but helps Nick Mullens as a desperation play.

12. DEN - Coach: Jerry Jeudy should play

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (shoulder) has the confidence of head coach Vic Fangio as it pertains to playing Sunday, Nov. 15, in Week 10, Fangio said Friday.

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

Jeudy is coming off of his breakout game and should be the focal point of the Broncos pass offense. He's a high ceiling WR3/Flex this week.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 13.

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

Missing your first day of practice on a Friday is usually a bad sign for a player's availability on Sunday. Tonyan is a very dicey play this week and might be inactive.

Chicago Bears NT John Jenkins (ankle), TE Cole Kmet (groin), S Sherrick McManis (hand), RB David Montgomery (concussion), OL Sam Mustipher (knee), OL Jason Spriggs (knee) and QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 13. S Tashaun Gipson (foot), LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), WR Allen Robinson (knee) and LB Roquan Smith (back) were limited for a second straight day. TE Jimmy Graham (rest), DT Akiem Hicks (rest), LB Danny Trevathan (rest), DT Brent Urban (shin, thumb) and LB Josh Woods (ankle, calf) practiced in full.

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

Montgomery needs to get back to practice tomorrow to have a good chance to play Monday night. Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall are the backups, but Lamar Miller could also get called up from the practice squad. The Bears running game is still no place to look for fantasy overachievers no matter who starts.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

CB Isaac Yiadom (calf) was added to the injury report and limited in practice Friday; he is also listed as questionable. WR Sterling Shepard (toe, hip) was limited in practice all week but has been removed from the injury report. DB Logan Ryan (non-injury), DL Leonard Williams (non-injury) and TE Kaden Smith (concussion) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

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

Tate seems to be on the outs with the team and might be inactive again this week, which would help Austin Mack's status as a deep sleeper after his strong play last week.

LB Thomas Davis (non-injury) and RB Antonio Gibson (shoulder) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Arizona Cardinals DT Leki Fotu (ankle), OL Justin Murray (hand) and DE Jordan Phillips (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills.

Los Angeles Rams OL Brian Allen (knee) was added to the injury report and did not practice Friday, Nov. 13; he is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.

TE Stephen Anderson (foot) practiced in full all week and no longer appears on the injury report.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

Jeffery will be back on the field, but he won't play ahead of Travis Fulgham. He's not worth adding in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Hockenson is a game time decision, but he did return to practice today, so he's on the probable side of questionable. Have a backup on your roster and check back on Sunday.

Green Bay Packers Jaire Alexander (concussion) will be listed as doubtful for Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Matt LaFleur.

Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) participated in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and could play in Week 10 versus the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

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

Both will be game time decisions. We don't have any clarity about this backfield and the only worthy play will be Carson if he is active, but he will carry a lot of risk too.
