ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Travis Kelce (ankle, questionable) will play Sunday against the Bills.
The Chiefs slapped Kelce with the questionable tag after he suffered a minor ankle injury at Friday's practice. He'll play through the pain Sunday in a game featuring two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Kelce has really only had one monster fantasy game this year, but his steady workload has allowed him to maintain his place as an upper echelon TE1.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Floyd (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers.
For the first time in a few weeks, Carson Palmer will have his full complement of weapons. Floyd has scored a touchdown in four straight games with at least 50 yards in each of those contests. He'll have to compete with Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown for targets but Floyd still makes sense as a WR3.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Rishard Matthews (illness, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets.
Matthews showed up on the injury report late in the week after coming down with an illness. His status was never in real danger. He's coming off a dismal game against the Cowboys in Week 11 but still leads the Dolphins with 662 receiving yards and four touchdowns this year. Pencil Matthews in as a back-end WR3.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jarvis Landry (knee, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets.
So is teammate Rishard Matthews (illness). Ryan Tannehill should be able to exploit the Jets' secondary with Marcus Williams filling in for Darrelle Revis (concussion). Landry will be on the WR2/3 borderline for Sunday's divisional matchup.
The Oakland defense has surrendered 189.0 rushing yards and 28.7 points per game over the last three weeks.
The brutal defensive performances have continued a season-long trend for Oakland and leave the Raiders D/ST miles from the fantasy radar. Week 12 will see Oakland travel to Tennessee, where the Raiders D/ST will not be a recommended fantasy option.
With Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (sports-hernia surgery) ruled out, the Pittsburgh defense will attempt to corral rookie RB Thomas Rawls on Sunday.
Rawls is coming off a monstrous 255-total yard performance in Week 11 and is averaging a beefy 6.0 yards per carry this season. In games in which he has received 16 or more carries, Rawls has run for 132.5 yards per game and 6.2 yards per tote. The Steelers D/ST will have its hands full with the powerful rookie and will be a mid-tier fantasy option in Week 12.
The St. Louis defense has coughed up 131.3 rushing yards per game during a current three-game losing skid.
Adrian Peterson, Jeremy Langford, and Buck Allen did most of the damage over the last few weeks as the St. Louis defense has struggled to regain its early season form. Week 12 brings a trip to Cincinnati for the St. Louis defense, to face the NFL’s fifth-highest scoring offense as the Bengals average 26.6 points per outing. The Rams D/ST will be a back-end top-10 fantasy option this week on the road.
The Atlanta Falcons have allowed just 190.5 passing yards per game over their last four contests.
This statistic is a bit misleading, as the Falcons have not exactly faced a murderer’s row of opposing quarterbacks in recent weeks. Matchups with Matt Hasselbeck, Blaine Gabbert, Jameis Winston, and Zach Mettenberger make up the aforementioned four-game span so the numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. Week 12 brings a matchup with Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater, who is 23rd among NFL quarterbacks in passing yardage this season. The Falcons D/ST is a reasonable fantasy option at home in Week 12.
