Sammy Watkins (foot) not spotted at Chiefs practice

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins will not practice Saturday.

What It Means:

Watkins is dealing with a foot injury that also kept him out of practice on Friday. He missed the team's Week 10 game against the Cardinals.

He is averaging 10.5 FanDuel points per game.

Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker (knee) ruled out Sunday

Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

What It Means:

Hooker is out with a knee injury. This is bad news for the Colts, as Oakland's Derek Carr picked apart the Indianapolis defense in the other game Hooker missed this year (21-for-28, 244 yards, 3 touchdowns).

He has 1 interception and 31 tackles this season.

Keenan Allen (finger, hip) removed from Chargers' injury report

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (finger, hip) was not listed with an injury designation on the team's injury report for Week 11.

What It Means:

Allen was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday but will be a full-go on Sunday versus the Denver Broncos.

Our models project Allen for 5.5 catches, 72.9 yards, and 0.5 touchdowns for 12.9 FanDuel points in Week 11.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay likely to see reduced touches in Week 11

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is expected to see a reduced workload in Week 11 with Royce Freeman back in action.

What It Means:

Lindsay averaged 20 touches in the last two games with Freeman sidelined, but head coach Vance Joesph said the team would return to the "hot hand" approach versus the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Devontae Booker will also see some snaps, complicating the backfield workload in Denver.

Our models project Lindsay for 78.4 total yards on 14.5 touches for 13.0 FanDuel points in Week 11.

Chargers' Antonio Gates (knee) will be a game-time decision in Week 11

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (knee) will be a game-time decision on Sunday.

What It Means:

Gates did not practice all week but was still deemed questionable to play. It appears the veteran tight end will likely sit out, leaving Virgil Green to soak up the bulk of the snaps on Sunday.

Our models project Gates for just 1.6 catches, 19.9 yards, and 0.2 touchdowns for 3.8 Fanduel points if he plays on Sunday.

Jimmy Graham (thumb) expected to miss over a month for Green Bay

Green Bay Packer tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken thumb he suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

What It Means:

It's a tough blow for Graham and the Packers, who are clinging to hopes of making a playoff push. Lance Kendricks will likely start in his stead.

In 10 games this season, Graham has 34 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns.

Tajae Sharpe (ankle) questionable for Tennessee in Week 11

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe is considered questionable on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

What It Means:

Sharpe was a full participant in practice until Friday, as he was suddenly limited. He should be good to go, but keep a close eye on his status.

Our models project Sharpe for 1.6 catches, 25.7 yards, 0.2 touchdowns and 4.4 FanDuel points.

Taywan Taylor (foot) questionable in Week 11 for Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Taywan Taylor is considered questionable on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

What It Means:

Taylor hasn't practiced in two weeks, but the fact that he's listed as questionable could signal a return. Keep a close eye on his status.

Should he find a way to play, our models project Taylor for 1.6 catches, 17.8 yards, 0.1 touchdowns and 3.0 FanDuel points.

Antonio Gates (knee) questionable in Week 11 for Los Angeles

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is considered questionable on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Denver Broncos.

What It Means:

Gates has yet to practice this week, but at his advanced age he could play without participating. Keep a close eye on his status.

Should he play, our models project Gates for 1.6 catches, 19.9 yards, 0.2 touchdowns and 3.8 FanDuel points.

Joey Bosa (foot) questionable for Los Angeles in Week 11

Los Angeles Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa is considered questionable on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Denver Broncos.

What It Means:

Bosa has yet to play at all this season, but it looks like the all-pro could be back on Sunday to make his debut.

Should he play, our models project Bosa for 1.5 tackles.

Marvin Jones (knee) out for Detroit in Week 11

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones will not play on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers.

What It Means:

Jones suffered the knee injury on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, and he was unable to suit up at all during practice this week. With Golden State now in Philadelphia, Kenny Golladay will be the lone reliable receiver for Matthew Stafford.

In nine games this season, Jones has 35 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns.

Jordy Nelson (knee) out for Oakland in Week 11

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson will not play on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

What It Means:

Nelson joins fellow receiver Martavis Bryant as inactive, meaning that the Raiders' receiving corps will be incredibly depleted.

In nine games this season, Nelson has 25 catches for 353 yards and three touchdowns.

Chris Godwin (ankle) questionable in Week 11 for Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is considered questionable on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the New York Giants.

What It Means:

Godwin practiced in full on Friday after missing the past two days of practice, so it seems as though he'll be good to go on Sunday. Keep an eye on his status, but unless he suffers a serious setback, he'll play without limitation.

Should he play, our models project Godwin for 3.6 catches, 49.1 receiving yards, 0.3 touchdowns and 8.4 FanDuel points.

Ronald Jones (hamstring) out in Week 11 for Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones is not going to play on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the New York Giants.

What It Means:

Jones had missed the last couple weeks, and after getting in limited practice sessions, it seemed like he would make his return. But Jones will miss another contest, leaving Peyton Barber to handle the workload.

In four games this season, Jones has 19 carries for 42 yards, six catches for 34 yards, and one total touchdown.

Royce Freeman (ankle) will play for Denver in Week 11

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman is going to play on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

What It Means:

Freeman missed the past two games, but he seems healthy enough to make his return to the team. He'll cut into Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker's production.

Our models project Freeman for 28.7 rushing yards, 6.3 receiving yards, 0.3 touchdowns and 5.6 FanDuel points.

Jamison Crowder (ankle) out for Washington in Week 11

Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder will not play on Sunday in the team's Week 11 game against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Crowder has not played since Week 5, and his contract year has been an unmitigated disaster thus far.

In four games this season, Crowder has 13 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown.

Marvin Jones (knee) misses Lions practice again

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones (knee) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

What It Means:

Jones was held out of practice all week after injuring his knee last Sunday. Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports that Jones will receive a second opinion on his knee, suggesting this could be a multi-week injury. Kenny Golladay will gobble up targets versus the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

Jones is averaging 10.9 FanDuel points over nine games this season. He has 35 catches (62 targets) for 508 yards and 5 touchdowns.

A.J. Green (toe) doubtful for Bengals in Week 11

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is considered doubtful for the team's Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Green isn't expected to come back just yet from his toe injury, but the fact that it's not a definite absence as of yet is a good sign as to his availability going forward.

In eight games this season, Green has 45 catches for 687 yards and six touchdowns.

Lamar Jackson (illness) returns for Ravens Friday

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) returned to practice Friday.

What It Means:

Jackson was held out of Thursday's practice but has since been removed from the injury report. Joe Flacco (hip) hasn't practiced all week, so the rookie may make his first career start versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley expects Robert Griffin III to also be involved "for some series and special packages."

Jackson has completed 7-of-12 passes for 87 yards and 1 touchdown and rushed 28 times for 139 yards and 1 touchdown this season.

John Ross (groin) questionable for Bengals against Baltimore

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (groin) is questionable for Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Ross practiced all week and should be good to go for Sunday. He caught 2 catches for 39 yards and 1 touchdown on 6 targets in Week 10 with A.J. Green (toe) sidelined. Green will be out again versus the Ravens.

Ross is the 65th receiver in numberFire's Week 11 fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to score 4.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,500.

Sammy Watkins (foot) downgraded, does not practice for Chiefs Friday

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins did not practice on Friday.

What It Means:

This is a downgrade after Watkins practiced on Thursday, although the Chiefs may just be managing his reps ahead of Monday's matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. There should be more clarity after Saturday's practice.

numberFire's models currently project Watkins for 10.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,200 in Week 11. Our fantasy rankings consider him to be a top-30 option at his position this week.

Joe Flacco (hip) officially doubtful for Ravens Week 11

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (hip) is officially doubtful for Week 11 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

What It Means:

Flacco hasn't practiced all week coming out of the Ravens' bye, putting Lamar Jackson in line for his first career start. Jackson was removed from the injury report after missing Thursday's practice due to illness. Robert Griffin III is also reportedly expected to be involved.

Flacco is averaging 15.9 FanDuel points in nine games this season, while throwing for 273.9 yards on a 61.2 completion percentage with 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He's currently the QB20 in numberFire's season-long fantasy rankings.

Keke Coutee (hammy) to be game-time call for Texans Week 11

Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee (hamstring, questionable) will be a game-time decision Week 11 against the Washington Redskins, head coach Bill O'Brien said.

What It Means:

Coutee was able to practice on a limited basis all week, so he should be fine for Sunday after being held out for nearly a month. The fourth-round pick is expected to work in three-wide sets with DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas.

Coutee is averaging 11.8 FanDuel points in three healthy games this season. He has 21 catches for 196 yards and 1 touchdown on 30 targets overall.

Joe Mixon (knee) fine for Bengals versus Ravens

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (knee) is no longer on the injury report for Week 11 versus the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Mixon returned to a full practice on Friday after being limited in Thursday's session. He "looks like all systems go," per Paul Dehner of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Mixon rushed 11 times for 61 yards and caught 2 passes (2 targets) for 24 yards in last week's blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Mixon is the RB14 in numberFire's Week 11 fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 13.8 FanDuel points at a cost of $7,300.

Golden Tate to play bigger role for Eagles Week 11

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Golden Tate is "much further along this week" and will have a bigger role Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints, head coach Doug Pederson said.

What It Means:

Tate played less than 30.0 percent of the snaps and finished with 2 catches for 21 yards on 4 targets in his Eagles debut last week. He will likely be more involved on Sunday in a game featuring a fantasy-friendly 56.0-point over/under.

numberFire's models project Tate to score 9.9 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,600 in Week 11. He's the WR29 in our weekly fantasy rankings.
