Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) missed practice Thursday. Freeman is expected to miss at least one week, so look for Tevin Coleman to see lead back touches in a bad matchup against the Seahawks. Given his ability, Coleman is a low-end RB1 play in Week 11.

The Seahawks placed C.J. Prosise on injured reserve. Prosise left the team's win over Arizona with a sprained ankle.

Related players: Mike Davis, Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy, J.D. McKissic

Fantasy Impact:

Prosise missed most of the previous five games with a sprain in his other ankle, the story said. The team promoted Davis off their practice squad. McKissic will remain the receiving threat out of the backfield.

49ers will go with the QB who practices better next week

Getting C.J. Beathard healthy (thumb) and getting another week of learning for Jimmy Garoppolo will be important as HC Kyle Shanahan once again intends to institute his week-to-week approach in making a decision on who his starter will be. Like last week, Shanahan indicated that the quarterback who fares better in practice after the bye will start against Seattle.

Asked Monday if watching the film of Beathard's strong showing against the Giants had forced him to reconsider who will start against the Seahawks, Shanahan said nothing had changed, though he left plenty of wiggle room for a change should Garoppolo prove ready to go.

"We'll see how practice goes next week," Shanahan said. "C.J. played pretty well. I thought he had his best game. I think he’s gotten better each week in practice, and I think it showed in the game the most. I thought the guys played around him their best game, too, which definitely makes it easier to keep everyone out there and keep that going. We'll see how Jimmy responds this week. We'll get to work more one-on-one with him, get a little extra practice on Monday and see how it goes. We'll have our game plan done Monday and Tuesday and we’ll start practicing our game plan Wednesday.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story pretty much indicates going with Garoppolo would make the most sense for the team at this point. Unfortunately, the 49ers will play the Seahawks D Week 12, so it will be a tough matchup for either QB. However, it's a home game and the story makes it seem like starting Garoppolo at home could create more buzz and fill some seats. Either way, it looks like this decision is at least a week away from being made.

Schefter: Falcons RB Devonta Freeman unlikely to play Week 11

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is unlikely to play next Monday night at Seattle against the Seahawks after suffering his second concussion of his season.

Related players: Tevin Coleman, Terron Ward

Fantasy Impact:

Schefter added in another tweet he wouldn't be shocked if this is a multi-game absence. Coming into this week, Seattle was ranked 12th in terms of fantasy points allowed to running backs and really shut down Adrian Peterson on Thursday night. It's not a great matchup, but Coleman should again see an uptick in snaps with Ward also factoring in the mix. Be sure to check out our rankings on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

As expected, the Seahawks are without RB Eddie Lacy, but WR Paul Richardson is active. We have Richardson ranked as our No. 49 WR in standard leagues, while RB Thomas Rawls is our No. 35 ranked RB for Week 10.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson ready for another 30-carry game

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 10:23am

Marc Sessler - [Full Article]

In his last game out, Peterson ran the ball a career-high 37 times and he's ready for a similar workload versus the Seahawks tonight. Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Peterson's workload will be about the same as it was last week and Peterson is up for the challenge.

"If that's what it takes, I'll just make sure my body is ready to roll," Peterson said. "If it's 30, I'm all in for it. If it's 15 and that's what they give me, I'll make them the best 15 I have."

Fantasy Impact:

In three games as a Cardinal, Peterson has averaged 24.7 carries per game, with two performances of 25+ carries. In a neutral matchup, according to our aFPA metric, we have Peterson ranked as our No. 13 RB in standard leagues. The Cardinals will most likely have a more run-heavy game plan with Drew Stanton under center, but no RB has ran for over 100 yards versus the Seahawks since Week 3 (DeMarco Murray, 115 yards), and only one back has tallied 20+ carries against them (Lamar Miller, 21 carries).

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. Graham will be fine to face the Cardinals on Thursday night.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin, questionable) did not practice Wednesday. Richardson didn’t practice all week, so he’s looking very iffy for Thursday’s game. Tyler Lockett’s prospects are looking up, though he’s likely to see plenty of Patrick Peterson if Richardson is out.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday. With Paul Richardson dinged up, Lockett could see extra targets this week, but he’s also likely to see extra attention from Patrick Peterson.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Prosise will make his return this week.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (groin, out) did not practice Wednesday. With Lacy out, Thomas Rawls figures to lead the backfield in touches, though C.J. Prosise is close to a return.

Healthy WR Paul Richardson becoming what Seahawks envisioned

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 8:13pm

SeattlePI.com - [Full Article]

Paul Richardson believed that if he could ever get through all the injuries that have sidetracked his career, he could develop into a consistent option for the Seattle Seahawks.
It's finally happening, and just in time, with Richardson in a contract year.

"I'm pretty confident in myself out there and in the offense. My biggest focus every week is to stay healthy," Richardson said. "So as long as I'm healthy, I feel like I give us a good chance on offense to make some plays or at least draw some attention, take the top off or whatever my duty calls me to do that week, I just maximize it."

Fantasy Impact:

He's already set a career-high with a team-high five touchdown receptions, including two TDs and 105 yards receiving in Seattle's win over Houston two weeks ago. He's four catches away from tying his career-best of 29 receptions (2014 rookie season).

Seahawks going with Thomas Rawls at RB Week 10

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 7:51pm

Bob Condotta on Twitter - [Full Article]

No surprise but Darrell Bevell said this week that "Thomas (Rawls) is going to be our guy.''

Related players: Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise

Fantasy Impact:

Condotta also tweeted that Lacy is expected to miss Week 10 with a groin issue, especially because of the short week and the game being played on Thursday. Prosise is back at practice and could be a factor as well.

Eddie Lacy sustained a groin injury during the first half against the Redskins and was declared doubtful to return.

Related players: Thomas Rawls

Fantasy Impact:

Lacy was supposed to be the lead back entering this game but gave way to Rawls after leaving. Now we'll have to see Lacy's status going forward and if roles will change.
