Week 12 Game Inactives And Injury Updates
Rams Inactives - WR Damian Williams, DB Lamarcus Joyner, CB Marcus Roberson, LB Korey Toomer, DE Alex Carrington, G Barrett Jones, G Brandon Washington
Chargers Inactives - RB Ronnie Brown, WR Dontrelle Inman, C Rich Ohrnberger, DE Damion Square, DT Ryan Carrethers, LB Reggie Walker, DB Jahleel Addae
Broncos Inactives - TE Julius Thomas, RB Ronnie Hillman, RB Montee Ball, DL Marvin Austin, CB Tony Carter, OT Chris Clark, OT Michael Schofield
With Julius Thomas out, Jacob Tamme becomes the primary TE for Denver. He’s a smart play if you need a TE, as he will likely get a solid number of targets today, as he did last week when Thomas was injured during the game. Also note that Emmanuel Sanders is not on the inactive list and will play today. Good news for his Fantasy owners, who can start him with confidence.
Dolphins Inactives - TE Charles Clay, CB Cortland Finnegan, CB Jalil Brown, LB Jonathan Freeny, DT Anthony Johnson, G Nate Garner, G Billy Turner.
Seahawks Inactives - TE RaShaun Allen, TE Demarcus Dobbs, C Max Unger, G James Carpenter, LB Allen Bradford, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, DB Marcus Burley
Cardinals Inactives - RB Kerwynn Williams, WR Larry Fitzgerald, TE Matthew Mulligan, DE Ed Stinson,
NT Alameda Ta'amu, LB Desmond Bishop, LB Glenn Carson
As expected, Larry Fitzgerald is out, so John Brown and especially Michael Floyd will see a bump in targets, although, this will be a difficult matchup with Seattle.
49ers Inactives - QB Josh Johnson, WR Bruce Ellington, WR Quinton Patton, TE Vance McDonald, NT Glenn Dorsey, CB Tramaine Brock, OT Anthony Davis
Redskins Inactives - TE Jordan Reed, WR Leonard Hankerson, QB Kirk Cousins, WR Aldrick Robinson, CB David Amerson, DL Chris Baker, OT Trent Williams
Bears Inactives - WR Chris Williams, T Jordan Mills, G Eben Britton, DE Trevor Scott, LB Khaseem Greene, LB Darryl Sharpton, CB Terrance Mitchell
Colts Inactives – TE Dwayne Allen, T Gosder Cherilus, C Khaled Holmes, NT Zach Kerr, G Lance Louis, DT Kelcy Quarles, CB Greg Toler
With Dwayne Allen out, Coby Fleener becomes the primary TE target and a solid TE play for Week 12. He got a ton of targets last week and could be a factor in today’s game.
Jaguars Inactives - RB Storm Johnson, WR Mike Brown, T Sam Young, G Tyler Shatley, DE Andre Branch, LB Jeremiah George, CB Teddy Williams
Browns Inactives - WR Rodney Smith, WR Marlon Moore , TE Jordan Cameron, OL Vinston Painter, LB Karlos Dansby, DB Pierre Desir, DB Robert Nelson
Titans Inactives - QB Charlie Whitehurst, WR Kris Durham, TE Richard Gordon, T Will Svitek, DE Ropati Pitoitua, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, DB Marqueston Huff
A Few Important Tidbits
The biggest player update we’re waiting on is that of Julius Thomas, who’s ankle is injured; he is not expected to play but is officially just questionable and a game time decision. Ian Rapoport is reporting that Larry Fitzgerald is unlikely to play this afternoon. We won’t get the official word until after 3 pm, but it appears that Michael Floyd and John Brown will get a bump in value today. Good news for Floyd owners, since he hasn’t done much in recent weeks. One thing to keep in mind for those of you thinking ahead to Monday is that Fred Jackson is expected to play now. So, if you’re holding a RB spot and hoping for Jackson to be available, it looks as though you may get your wish.
Lions Inactives - QB Kellen Moore, RB Reggie Bush, WR Ryan Broyles, TE Kellen Davis, G Larry Warford, DE Larry Webster, DT Nick Fairley
With Reggie Bush out, Joique Bell is again the primary between the tackles runner, though, he has a tough matchup today against NE.
Falcons Inactives - QB Sean Renfree, T Jonathan Scott, T Cameron. Bradfield, DT Cliff Matthews, LB James Anderson, LB Tyler Starr, CB Robert Alford
Eagles Inactives - QB Nick Foles, WR Jeff Maehl, T Dennis Kelly, C Julian Vandervelde, DE Taylor Hart, CB Roc Carmichael, CB Jaylen Watkins
Bengals Inactives - RB Rex Burkhead, WR Greg Little, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, T Tanner Hawkinson, DE Margus Hunt, LB Vontaze Burfict, CB Chris Lewis-Harris
Vikings Inactives - RB Matt Asiata, FB Zach Line, G David Yankey, G Austin Wentworth, DT Sharrif Floyd, LB Mike Mauti, LB Brandon Watts
As expected, a concussion has sidelined Matt Asiata, which could mean that Jerick McKinnon will see some goal line carries in this game, or, it’s also possible that Ben Tate is used in that role. However, he is currently listed as the fourth RB on the Vikings’ depth chart behind Joe Banyard. Either way, McKinnon still has a decent matchup and will get the majority of the touches.
Patriots Inactives - RB James White, WR Aaron Dobson, T Cameron Fleming, T Jordan Devey, DE Chandler Jones, DL Dominique Easley, CB Malcolm Butler
Buccaneers Inactives - RB Mike James, WR Robert Herron, T Kevin Pamphile, DE Da'Quan Bowers, LB Lavonte David, CB Crezdon Butler, CB C.J. Wilson
Texans Inactives - QB Tom Savage, RB Arian Foster, WR DeVier Posey, T Jeff Adams, LB Max Bullough, DB Kareem Jackson, DB Josh Aubrey
As expected, Arian Foster is out. Alfred Blue has a great matchup and is a Top 10 option at RB today. Jonathan Grimes should see somewhere around 10 touches, but isn’t recommended for Fantasy play.
Packers Inactives - QB Scott Tolzien, WR Jeff Janis, TE Brandon Bostick, C Garth Gerhart, LB Nick Perry, LB Carl Bradford ,CB Jarrett Bush
Welcome to the Week 12 game inactives and injury update. We’ll go over some of the more recent injury updates and list those players that may be game time decisions, and when the game inactive lists start rolling in shortly after 11 am EST, we’ll post those as well. This document will be updated periodically until the early games begin and once again prior to the afternoon games with the latest updates appearing at the top of the document. Be sure to check back frequently.
Teams On Bye for Week 12 – Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers
Players Already Declared OUT – Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman, Dwayne Allen, Matt Asiata, Donnie Avery, Jordan Cameron, Nick Foles, Khiry Robinson, Jordan Reed
Game Time Decisions
Arian Foster – He practiced on a limited basis once this week then missed the rest of the week’s practices, making it unlikely that he’ll play today. Alfred Blue will likely be the primary back with Jonathan Grimes also getting around 10 touches in the game.
Reggie Bush – The Lions play on Thanksgiving Day, so Bush will likely sit again today and perhaps try to play then. Joique Bell and Theo Riddick have done just fine in tandem without Bush.
Julius Thomas – Thomas has some sort of ankle injury but the extent and severity of it is unknown. He’s officially questionable but Coach John Fox didn’t seem very optimistic on Friday that he would play. Jacob Tamme gets a bump in value today if Thomas sits.
Emmanuel Sanders – Sanders practiced a bit late in the week and it appears he’s been cleared for contact. It remains to be seen whether he will be limited but he appears likely to play.
Josh Gordon – No, he’s not hurt. But we do have a report that he may be limited to 20-30 snaps and used in high leverage situations only today in his first game back. I’d take this with a grain of salt; if the game is on the line, you can bet the Browns will have all their best weapons on the field.
Other walking wounded on injury report but expected to play – Charles Sims, Doug Martin, Justin Hunter, Greg Jennings, Lamar Miller, Larry Fitzgerald, Jared Cook, Charles Clay, Fred Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Alshon Jeffrey, Brandon Marshall
