Howdy Folks,

Let's go.

SITE NEWS

A. Footballguys Company News From Me (Joe)
Sometimes a person's life goals change.
Such is the case with co-founder David Dodds. He will be exiting Footballguys that he helped build at the end of this 2020 football season.
David has no concrete plans as of this announcement but he says he is "looking to live a healthier life with proper sleep, better diet, and more exercise. He has lost 30+ pounds since mid-July and is looking to shed even more as he ramps up his Peloton workouts."
This is something we've talked about for some time. David and the staff have been working together all season and will continue to work on making sure the transition is as seamless and smooth as possible.
I will continue as head of all operations and I'm super excited for the future of Footballguys.
I hope this goes without saying but I'll say it anyway. There's zero drama or juicy news to go with this. I love David like I always have and wish him nothing but the best and I'm excited for his future.
We're focused on giving Footballguys customers everything we can to help them win this year and doing all we can to ensure it stays that way for the future.

1. NO - QB Drew Brees out at least two weeks

Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (ribs) had no change in his status after a second opinion for cracked ribs and a collapsed lung. That means he's out at least two weeks, and they'll re-evaluate him.

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

Brees it out of action for a couple of week at least with a painful injury. Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill will compete for the starting quarterback job while Brees is out. The Saints could use Winston as the starter while also then using Hill more at the position.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 11.

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

Mike Davis is going to be the lead back for the Panthers in Week 11. We're waiting on the status of QB Teddy Bridgewater, but the Panthers should lean on their rushing attack going forward.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

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

Amendola may get worked in later this week. If Matthew Stafford plays and Amendola is out there then we see him as a 'what the heck' flex in Week 11.

Mixon has been out for some time, and we'll watch his practice status on Friday. If he has to miss another game, then Gio Bernard would be the Bengals lead back in Week 11.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

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

This ankle problem could linger with Jeudy for a bit of time. He's not himself but is a big part of what the Broncos want to do through the air. Check back to see if he can be a full participant on Friday. Jeudy is a flex play for Fantasy GMs if he plays.

Updating a previous story, Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (ribs) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18, as expected.

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

That sounds about right. The ribs injury is not as serious as some thought it could be. However, it doesn't mean Lock is going to play. The Broncos may trot out Brett Rypien as their starter in Week 11 against the Dolphins. Stay tuned.

It's a good sign for Ridley's status in Week 11. He missed the team's Week 9 game against the Broncos and the Falcons had a bye in Week 10. Ridley could be out there this week, but watch for his status on Friday.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (thumb) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

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

It's a thumb injury on his throwing hand...not a great combination. There seems to be some confidence that he will be able to play on Sunday...but we need to see him practice without limitations on Friday. Stay tuned.

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

Lazard could be back on the field for the Packers in the near future. He's a favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers and could cut into the looks/targets of Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Keep an eye on his status for Week 11.
