ESPN - [Full Article]

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will miss his fourth straight game on Sunday because of a groin injury.

Maclin had been listed as questionable against the Falcons on Friday's injury report, but the Chiefs downgraded him to out.

Maclin hasn't played since a Nov. 6 game against the Jaguars, and even then he was in for only a couple of snaps.

Fantasy Impact:

Even if Maclin played, Tyreek Hill was our preferred play so Hill remains a nice option for lineups.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. As uninspiring as Siemian's play was at times, he has a solid 7.4 YPA and has thrown 1.5 TD per game. Paxton Lynch is a downgrade for both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, though both receivers had solid outings -- 5-49-1 and 7-80, respectively -- when Lynch started against the Falcons.

Cardinals WR John Brown still dealing with symptoms of sickle-cell trait

Arizona Sports - [Full Article]

Cardinals receiver John Brown left the Sunday game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a hamstring injury, and head coach Bruce Arians said Monday the starter suffered from the same issues caused from a sickle-cell trait that kept him out of one game this year.

John Brown had just a great week of practice, a great first half,” Arians said on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s Bickley and Marotta show. “We got him going to a bunch of specialists today.”

“That’s the one that’s so baffling,” Arians said Monday. “It’s not really a pull. Whatever the blood issue he has the legs tighten up.”

Fantasy Impact:

Brown looks iffy for Week 13. If he is out, look for Michael Floyd and J.J. Nelson to see more consistent snaps against Washington.

Cardinals wideout John Brown (hamstring) did not finish the game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael Floyd was questionable entering the game, but did play, however the Cards continue to be banged up at WR.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Palmer will be fine for a date with the Falcons.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) took full practice reps all week. Coleman is good to go for Week 12. We view him as an RB3/flex option in his first game back given a tough matchup with the Cardinals.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 12. Floyd suffered a hamstring injury in practice. If he sits this week, John Brown and J.J. Nelson would see a bump in snaps and become Sneaky Starts in a nice matchup against the Falcons.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (hamstring) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week. He has been removed from the injury report so he should be good to go.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) took full practice reps again Friday. Jones is good to go for a tough matchup with Patrick Peterson, though we still expect him to produce.

Wednesday, November 23, 2016, 8:58pm

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. Palmer is just getting a day of rest. He’ll be out there against the Falcons.

Wednesday, November 23, 2016, 8:58pm

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday. Coleman should return this week. We have him ranked as a RB3/flex in his first game back.
