Rams signed S Matt Giordano, formerly of the Raiders.

30-year-old Giordano was a 13-game starter in Oakland last year, primarily playing free safety after Michael Huff was forced to play cornerback. Giordano graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 69 safety among 88 qualifiers. On the bright side, PFF did like Giordano better than incumbent Craig Dahl (78th). In St. Louis, Giordano will push Darian Stewart to start at free safety.

Arian Foster (groin) returned to practice Wednesday.

Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Week 13 against the Titans.

As expected. The Texans will go with the veteran until they're officially eliminated from playoff contention. Either Tom Savage or Thad Lewis will be the No. 2. Fitzpatrick had an eye for DeAndre Hopkins in his nine starts earlier this season, but not much changes from Ryan Mallett to Fitzpatrick. Andre Johnson is a borderline WR2/3. Fitzpatrick is barely an option in two-quarterbacks leagues.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he'll play Week 13 against the Colts.

Reed got in a limited practice Wednesday, participating in individual drills. His Week 11 hamstring injury will end up costing him just one game. With Colt McCoy's insertion into the lineup, Reed makes for an interesting TE1 streaming option in a game the Redskins will likely be playing catch-up.
Nov 26 - 3:48 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is practicing Wednesday.

Murray still hasn't gained full clearance, but he's now on track to play against the Rams. Barring a setback, he should start and handle the majority of carries, with Marcel Reece likely mixing in on third downs. Coming off his breakout 112-yard, two-touchdown game last week, Murray will be a high-upside RB2/FLEX option.

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

He's "making some progress," but remains highly questionable for Week 13 against the Falcons due to a sprained MCL. If Fitzgerald can't go, Michael Floyd and John Brown get serious boosts, while Jaron Brown would also be on the radar as the No. 3 receiver. Consider Fitzgerald 50-50 for Sunday.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells reports Boom Herron will continue to start over Trent Richardson.

Coach Chuck Pagano would only say that Herron "may" start again this week against the Redskins because he practiced so well leading up to Week 12, but most Colts beat writers get the impression it'll be Herron getting the nod over Richardson again. This comes two days after Richardson said he didn't start last week because he was recovering from the flu. We didn't buy it. It really doesn't matter, as the two will split reps, but it shows the Colts are higher on Herron than sloth-like T-Rich in the backfield.

Jordan Cameron (concussion) is practicing Wednesday, but remains day-to-day.

Coach Mike Pettine said, "We're looking for [Cameron] to practice symptom-free for a couple of days in a row. Still day-to-day." If Cameron can string a few practices together this week, he'll likely be active for Week 13 against the Bills after missing the past four games. He's a high-upside add for the stretch run.
Nov 26 - 1:24 PM

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Colt McCoy will start Week 13 against the Colts, and Robert Griffin III has been benched.

Gruden said he believed McCoy deserved a promotion. The Redskins likely would have won last week in San Francisco had McCoy been under center. McCoy won't be a recommended fantasy option, though he could rack up garbage-time numbers as a QB2 on Sunday in Indianapolis. DeSean Jackson remains a WR2 with big-play upside. Alfred Morris's stock may take the biggest hit, as he's always had more success running the ball with RGIII under center.
Nov 26 - 12:12 PM

Odell Beckham (back) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Beckham took a knee to the back last Sunday night and missed one play before returning. He admitted he was sore Monday, but his status for Week 13 against the Jaguars was never in doubt. This confirms it. Beckham will be a borderline WR1/2 against Jacksonville's burnable secondary on Sunday.

The Jets have named Geno Smith their starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Unfortunately, we'll all be subjected to this nightmare of a quarterback situation on Monday Night Football. At this point, it doesn't even matter who starts under center for the Jets. Both Smith and Michael Vick are beyond horrible, having nothing but a negative effect on the entire pass game. Eric Decker and Percy Harvin don't receive a boost or downgrade, while Smith is obviously not even an option in two-quarterback leagues. GM John Idzik likely forced coach Rex Ryan's hand here to get one last look at Geno.

Profootballtalk reports Marshawn Lynch (back, illness) will "without question" play against the 49ers on Thanksgiving.

It's not a surprise, as coach Pete Carroll essentially guaranteed on Monday that Beast Mode would suit up for Seattle's grudge match with the 49ers. Lynch has been playing mostly dominant football, but on a short week against a tough run defense, he'll be a lower-end RB1 for Week 13.
