1. JAX - QB Mike Glennon to start

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start in Week 12 for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

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

Jake Luton goes back to the bench after his four-interception performance against the Steelers. Gardner Minshew is not yet ready to return from his thumb injury and that leaves Glennon as the guy the Jaguars turn to. James Robinson has been a quarterback-proof RB1 this year and D.J. Chark is worth considering as a WR3/flex play in Week 12.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen will start in Week 12 over QB Ryan Finley.

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

Ryan Finely will work as the backup even though he was Joe Burrow's backup and came into the game last week when Burrow went down. Allen has starting experience from last year with the Broncos but he's not a great option. Downgrade all your Bengals skill position player accordingly.

3. PHI - TE Zach Ertz nearing return

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) is trending in the right direction to return in Week 12, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

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

Ertz may be coming back in the near future but he wasn't doing much before this injury. Dallas Goedert is the primary tight end for the Eagles and worth TE1 consideration from Fantasy GMs every week.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) will practice in a non-contact jersey Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

McCaffrey is trying to work his way back from this latest injury. We'll know more about his status later in the week. The Panthers could easily go with Mike Davis as their lead back in Week 12 to give McCaffrey more time to heal.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) will participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

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

The window for Kalen Ballage is almost coming to a close. He could have one more week or so of fantasy relevance but Ekeler is close to returning. The team will have 21 days to add Ekeler to the active roster.

6. ARI - QB Kyler Murray puts in limited practice

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Murray didn't look like himself last week against the Seahawks. The shoulder injury is a concern moving forward, especially since Murray is a running quarterback. We'll see him play in Week 12 but it would be nice to see him look more like himself.

7. HOU - WR Randall Cobb out

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb (toe) has been ruled out for Week 12 and could miss several weeks with a significant toe injury.

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

Cobb is out and so is Kenny Stills. Fantasy GMs can consider Keke Coutee a 'what the heck' flex this week.

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Week 12.

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

Randall Cobb is out for the Texans too. That means Keke Coutee moves up into 'what the heck' flex territory for Fantasy GMs in Week 12.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Bridgewater was close to playing last week but P.J. Walker got the start instead. We anticipate that he will be out there starting for the Panthers in Week 12 barring any sort of setbacks.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

The Bears have not yet determined a starting quarterback for Week 12. Trubisky fell out of favor weeks ago and Nick Foles took over. Foles didn't play well or win much so Trubisky is back in consideration.

11. BUF - WR John Brown misses practice

Buffalo Bills WR John Brown (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

It's not a great sign that Brown could not practice after a bye week. He's not trending in the right direction, so we'll have to see what he can do on Friday.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Foles may get bounced from the starting lineup this week. The Bears have not made any sort of determination on their starting quarterback. We could see Mitchell Trubisky back in action on Sunday.

FOOTBALLGUYS PICKS

Title Text - Detail. Pitch and link.



13. DEN - QB Drew Lock gets full practice

Source: DenverBroncos.com - Aric DiLalla

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (ribs) participated in full at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Lock was bad in the first half against the Dolphins last week. Then, he became a game manager in the second half and the team won due to their rushing attack and defense. Lock's inability to read the full field holds back his production. The Broncos should continue to bring him along with baby steps each week as they try to determine whether or not he's a franchise-level quarterback.

14. DEN - Jerry Jeudy puts in limited work

Source: DenverBroncos.com - Aric DiLalla

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle, Achilles) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

We'd feel better about Jeudy as a fantasy asset if QB Drew Lock found him on passing plays more often. The 'All-22' shows that Jeudy is getting open consistently but doesn't draw that many targets on a weekly basis. If/when Lock improves, the numbers for Jeudy should rise.

15. ATL - WR Calvin Ridley listed as limited

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Ridley should have to play a larger role if Julio Jones can't play. The Falcons will be cautious with Ridley this week in practice but expect him to fully participate by Friday.

16. ATL - WR Julio Jones limited at practice

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Jones is looking like a game-time decision in Week 12. He might be limited all week long. Keep track of his practice status but we may not have much more clarity on Friday.

17. DEN - TE Noah Fant puts in full practice

Source: DenverBroncos.com - Aric DiLalla

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (ribs) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

We give Fant a ton of credit for his toughness. He hasn't looked like himself in weeks but still has low-end TE1 value for Fantasy GMs.

18. LVR - WR Nelson Agholor practices in full

Source: Raiders.com

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (knee) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Agholor is a key cog for the Raiders passing attack. We like him as a WR3/flex option for Fantasy GMs in Week 12 against the Falcons.

19. CIN - RB Giovani Bernard does not practice

Source: Bengals.com

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

This is a new issue for Bernard. Fantasy GMs need to have other options ready. The Bengals are already starting Brandon Allen at quarterback, and now they may have to use Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams more at the running back position.

20. NYJ - WR Breshad Perriman limited Wednesday

New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Perriman is a flex worthy wide receiver with Joe Flacco in at quarterback. We should see him fully participate in practice before the end of the week.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf, hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Watkins could be back this week for the Chiefs. Against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Watkins would have 'what the heck' flex appeal if he plays.

22. MIA - RB Myles Gaskin on the field Wednesday

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25. He is currently on the Reserve/Injured list.

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

Salvon Ahmed has looked okay but not good enough to keep his college teammate (Gaskin) from getting back the starting job. We'll see how Gaskin responds to practicing and he might still be about a week away.

23. CHI - RB David Montgomery puts in full practice

Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 25.

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

Montgomery is back this week for the Bears. We see him more of a RB3/flex option for Fantasy GMs in Week 12.
