Three final tidbits before we depart to watch the games.
First, C.J. Anderson was announced as the starter for the Broncos. Montee Ball will play and will definitely be in the mix along with Juwan Thompson, but how this shakes out won't be determined until a hot hand emerges. Anderson is worth starting if you need him.
Second, Charles Sims will receive the heaviest workload for the Buccaneers. Do with that what you will. Sims is a good flex start but no more.
Finally, Isaiah Crowell will start for the Browns today. Once again, the Browns are messing with us. Start Crowell as a RB3 and drop West down to flex status, but only use West if you have to.

Well, here we are, another glorious Sunday morning to spend with coffee and the newspaper while we wait for the games to begin. NOT! At least, not for me; I’ll be right here all morning monitoring the news wires closely for anything that might make an impact on your Fantasy lineups for today. There’s already plenty of news about players missing actions today; so, let’s get to it! As always, this article will be updated throughout the morning with the latest updates appearing at the top. The bulk of the information will appear shortly after 11:30, which is when teams make their game inactives available to the league and the media.
Teams on Bye for Week 11 – Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, NY Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars
Players Already Declared OUT
Arian Foster – Alfred Blue will get the heavy workload today, at least 20 touches depending on how well Ryan Mallett connects with the Texans’ receiver corps. Consider Blue a high end RB2 with RB1 upside for today. Jonathan Grimes will also get some action. Figure somewhere around 10 touches for Grimes, mainly as a change of pace back and/or to give Blue a breather. Grimes isn’t worth starting in Fantasy, though, as he is unlikely to score.
Reggie Bush – This shouldn’t be a surprise, especially since Joique Bell and Theo Riddick have worked fairly well as a tandem of backs with similar skill sets. This is going to be a defensive battle with Arizona, so you might consider other options than Bell or Riddick if you’ve got one. Neither of these two will provide much today and there won’t be many points to go around in a low-scoring affair.
Khiry Robinson & Pierre Thomas – No surprise here, as the status quo continues with Mark Ingram lined up for another big day.
Giovani Bernard – Jeremy Hill will again be the starter against the Saints in a solid matchup, though, all eyes will be on Andy Dalton, who must play better for the Bengals to compete. If they fall behind and have to abandon the running game, Hill’s numbers will take a big hit.
Ronnie Hillman – Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to figuring how the Broncos will deploy C.J. Anderson, Juwan Thompson and Montee Ball. Anderson is the safer bet for the most production but Ball will likely get 10-15 touches and Thompson could also be in there in short yardage situations and on the goal line. Good luck.
The rest of the OUT bunch – Nick Foles, Jordan Cameron, Doug Martin and Peyton Hillis
Game Time Decisions
Martellus Bennett – He practiced fully Friday after being limited all week, and is expected to play.
Kyle Rudolph – He is expected to return to action this week after practicing in full Thursday and Friday.
Andrew Hawkins – He’s expected to play after missing Week 10. He practiced all week and should be good to go.
Brandon Marshall – He’s played through an ankle injury almost all season and now has an injury to his other ankle. He is expected to play without limits but temper your expectations, as he is almost certain to be less than 100 percent.
Montee Ball – He is expected to play and get somewhere around 10 touches.
Rashad Jennings – He returns after missing five weeks with a knee injury. His workload today is a mystery and Andre Williams is still expected to be part of the plan. This might not be a good week to use Jennings against a tough and hungry 49ers defense.
Ryan Mathews – He makes his return against Oakland, which should be a good matchup. But the offensive line of the Chargers has been dreadful and the Raiders are better than you might think against the run. You can start him but maybe not as anything but a flex.
