Josh Jacobs Injury Update

Jacobs (calf) is officially questionable to play in Week 13. The Raiders made it clear that they want him to suit up if possible, though we might not have an official ruling on his status until Sunday afternoon. Fantasy managers should plug him into their starting lineups but plan to check the Raiders' injury report 90 minutes before kickoff.


Christian McCaffrey Injury Update

McCaffrey (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the injury report. He'll suit up against the Dolphins on Sunday, ranking as a mid-range RB1 in fantasy football.


Joe Mixon Injury Update

Mixon (concussion) remains in concussion protocol and has not been given the green light to play against the Chiefs in Week 13. He is officially listed as questionable and will need to clear protocol by Sunday morning in order to suit up. Otherwise, Samaje Perine would draw his second consecutive start, ranking as a mid-range RB2.


Aaron Jones Injury Update

Jones (shin, glute) has been removed from the injury report and will play against the Bears on Sunday. Although A.J. Dillon will likely eat into his workload, Jones still ranks as a fringe RB1 given the favorable matchup.


Travis Etienne Jr. Injury Update

Etienne (foot) has been removed from the injury report and is "good to go" against the Lions, according to head coach Doug Pederson. This comes as no surprise considering Pederson said Etienne could have returned to the game last week, but the team chose to exercise caution and hold him out. He ranks as an RB2 in fantasy football this week.


Raheem Mostert Injury Update

Mostert (knee) has been removed from the injury report and will play against his old team, the 49ers, on Sunday. The 30-year-old will have to split touches with Jeff Wilson Jr. and therefore ranks as an RB3 in fantasy football.


Antonio Gibson Injury Update

Gibson (foot) was limited in practice on Friday and is officially questionable to play against the Giants this week. At this point, it looks like he'll be a true game-time decision. In the event that he can't play, Brian Robinson Jr. would continue to lead the backfield while Jonathan Williams fills a depth role.


Michael Carter Injury Update

Carter (ankle) is doubtful for Week 13. Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson will both see increased snaps in his absence, but James Robinson, who was a healthy scratch last week, could also get involved. The Jets' backfield has the potential to produce significant fantasy points this week, but without a clear understanding of which player will lead the rushing attack, none of them rank higher than the RB3 tier.


Najee Harris Injury Update

Harris (oblique) didn't practice at all until Friday when he logged a limited session. Still, he has been removed from the injury report and ranks as a low-end RB2 ahead of a favorable matchup versus Atlanta.


Jaylen Warren Injury Update

Warren (hamstring) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, but the expectation is that he'll play after practicing in full all week long. It remains to be seen how the Steelers' backfield snaps will be divided, but Warren should be viewed as the No. 2 behind Harris and therefore ranks as an RB4 in fantasy football.


Leonard Fournette Injury Update

Fournette (hip) has practiced in full this week and is slated to return against the Saints on Monday night. He'll likely platoon with rookie Rachaad White as Tampa Bay rides the hot hand. Both backs rank as high-end RB3 options.


J.K. Dobbins Injury Update

The Ravens opened the 21-day practice window for Dobbins (knee), but he has not been activated from IR and will not play against the Broncos in Week 13. It'll be another week of Gus Edwards leading the Baltimore backfield.


A.J. Dillon Injury Update

Dillon (quadricep) was limited this week but did not receive an injury designation following Friday's practice. Barring a setback, he'll play against the Bears in Week 13. Aaron Jones' backup ranks as a fringe RB3 in fantasy football.


Elijah Mitchell Injury Update

Mitchell (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13 and could be placed on IR. The team will make an official decision on his status prior to Saturday afternoon. Regardless, Christian McCaffrey will continue to lead the 49ers' backfield while Jordan Mason, Tyrion Davis-Price, and Tevin Coleman fill depth roles.


Jerick McKinnon Injury Update

McKinnon (hamstring) has been removed from the injury report and will play against the Bengals on Sunday. His receiving ability puts him in the fringe RB3 tier this week.


Cam Akers Injury Update

Akers (illness) returned to practice on Friday and has been removed from the injury report. The running back is now healthy and will complement Kyren Williams out of the backfield in Week 13.


Benny Snell Jr. Injury Update

Snell (knee) upgraded to a full participant on Friday and has been cleared to play against the Falcons in Week 13. Assuming Warren (hamstring) is active, Snell should drop back down to No. 3 on the depth chart and won't be worth rostering in fantasy football.


Darrell Henderson Jr. Injury Update

Henderson (illness) was added to the injury report after missing practice on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable for Week 13. If active, he would likely surpass JaMycal Hasty as the Jaguars' No. 2 back behind Etienne.


Mark Ingram II Injury Update

Ingram (foot) was a full participant during Friday's practice. Assuming the veteran maintains the same status on Saturday, he should be cleared to play against the Buccaneers this week.


Travis Homer Injury Update

Homer (illness, knee) was limited on Friday after missing the first two days of practice. He is officially listed as questionable and will likely be a true game-time decision this week. The backup to Kenneth Walker III, Homer has shown promise in the receiving game but should still be left on waivers in most redraft leagues.


Mike Boone Injury Update

Boone (ankle) practiced all three days this week but has not yet been activated from the injured reserve. The Broncos have until Saturday afternoon to officially add him to their 53-man roster. If Boone is healthy enough to play in this week's game, he would likely back up Latavius Murray while logging snaps on passing downs.


Rex Burkhead Injury Update

Burkhead (concussion) practiced in full on Friday but has not cleared the concussion protocol. As a result, he is officially questionable to play in Week 13. If the veteran is unable to suit up, Eno Benjamin would likely make his Texans debut, backing up rookie Dameon Pierce.


Brandon Bolden Injury Update

Bolden (calf) was limited in practice this week and is officially questionable to play versus the Chargers. His row on the injury report mirrors that of Jacobs, who is also questionable. We might not have any more information on their statuses until Sunday afternoon.


Gary Brightwell Injury Update

Brightwell (illness) is questionable to play Sunday after logging back-to-back limited practices. Even if active, he'll operate as the Giants' No. 3 running back and should be left on waivers in fantasy football.


Myles Gaskin Injury Update

Gaskin (shoulder, ankle) upgraded to a limited participant during Friday's practice. He is officially questionable for Week 13 versus the Niners. With Mostert (knee) returning to the mix, Gaskin will have a minimal role on Sunday, if he's even active.


Hassan Haskins Injury Update

Hassan Haskins (hip) is officially listed as questionable to play against the Eagles in Week 13. He was limited in practice on Friday. Even if active, he can be left on waivers in fantasy football.
