Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't practice on Friday

Vaughn McClure - [Full Article]

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said during a press conference that Freeman won't practice today.

Fantasy Impact:

With Freeman still dealing with concussion symptoms, it seems highly unlikely at this point he will play this week. That means you can fire up Tevin Coleman as an RB1 this week versus the Seahawks, which is how we view him. Coleman is our No. 9 ranked RB in PPR leagues and we have him ranked as our No. 10 RB in standard leagues. Terron Ward may also see an increase in snaps.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) not practicing

Ryan O'Halloran - [Full Article]

Fournette was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Missing practice today is clearly a downgrade and a situation to monitor the rest of the weekend until inactives are officially announced.

UPDATE: Fournette has officially been listed as questionable for Week 11.

Fantasy Impact:

For now, we have Fournette ranked as a top-8 RB in all formats in a decent matchup against the Browns, according to our aFPA metric. However, Fournette did recently miss two games and wasn't as effective as we've been accustomed to upon his return last week—totalling 33 yards on 17 carries. Prior to his injury, he came off back-to-back games of 181 yards and 2 touchdowns and 130 yards and 1 touchdown. Make sure to check back with us on Sunday for an updated look at his status and ranking.

McCarthy: 'I think Ty (Montgomery) is going to be out this week'

During a Friday morning news conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he doesn't believe Montgomery will play this week against the Ravens.

"I think Ty is going to be out this week," McCarthy said. "I don't think there's a long-term concern."

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers are already without Aaron Jones, and if Montgomery does indeed miss this week's contest against the Ravens, it means Jamaal Williams will be the team's No. 1 RB.

Our aFPA metric shows this to be a great matchup for Williams, and we have him ranked as our No. 14 RB in both standard and PPR leagues.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist, illness) took full practice reps again Thursday. Bortles is a Sneaky Start against the Browns who are last in the league in QB aFPA.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Packers QB Brett Hundley (hamstring) took full practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Hundley is on track to play. It’s not a good matchup, but Hundley is capable of putting up points quickly as a runner.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Kizer is best avoided this week given a tough matchup against the Jaguars (No. 1 in QB aFPA).

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (right shoulder) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday. His head coach, Anthony Lynn, said that the team thinks he’ll play, but it’s “up to the doctors.” We should know on Saturday whether or not he’s cleared to play. Owners making a Thursday call between Marcus Mariota or Ben Roethlisberger versus Rivers, the safe play is to start Roethlisberger/Mariota.

Texans QB Tom Savage (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Blaine Gabbert is expected to start against the Texans, who are No. 30 in QB aFPA. Gabbert has a few weapons to throw to and can put up points in the running game.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (right shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Ryan Fitzpatrick will continue to start for the Bucs.

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:07pm

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Crowell should be able to play through the injury, but it’s a tough matchup against the Jaguars.
