Geno Smith (knee) expects to be ready for training camp.

"I’ll be full go during camp next year," said Smith. "Other than that, just taking it week by week. No need to rush it." An impending free agent, Smith will be eight months removed from surgery in July. With Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg under contract, Smith will likely be playing for a different team in 2017.
Dec 2 - 8:16 PM

Redskins signed CB Dashaun Phillips.

Phillips is taking David Bruton’s spot on the active roster. He’s spent the last nine weeks on Washington's practice squad. Phillips should push Kendall Fuller for slot reps.
Dec 2 - 7:31 PM

Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee, PUP) isn’t expected to return Sunday.

Pettigrew has been practicing since Week 12. He hasn't had any setbacks but isn’t ready to return. The Lions will need to activate Pettigrew next week or shut him down for the season.
Dec 2 - 7:11 PM

Lions WLB DeAndre Levy (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Levy has been getting in limited practices, but he's not expected to return Sunday. The Lions could also be without LB Tahir Whitehead (questionable, knee) against the Saints.
Dec 2 - 7:05 PM

Lions DE Ziggy Ansah said he thinks the ankle injury he suffered Week 2 will hamper him "all year."

Coming off 14.5 sacks last season, Ansah has zero takedowns in eight games this year. His ankle certainly has something to do with the decreased production. The sacks have not been there, but Ansah does have 10 hurries in the last five games according to PFF and almost had a strip sack on Thanksgiving. Those hurries should turn into takedowns eventually.
Dec 2 - 6:44 PM

Coach Todd Bowles said Brandon Marshall’s (knee, foot) status is a "concern."

Marshall has yet to practice this week. A return on Saturday would put him on track to suit up against the Colts, though he’s capable of playing without practicing. Marshall should be fine as a WR2 for Week 13.
Dec 2 - 6:06 PM

Chiefs CB Steven Nelson has been removed from the Week 13 injury report.

Nelson is ready to return after getting in a full week of practice. The Chiefs will have both Nelson and Marcus Peters for the first time since Week 10.
Dec 2 - 5:35 PM

Seahawks RB Troymaine Pope (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Pope practiced in full the last two days. He should back up Thomas Rawls, but won't see more than a few touches.
Dec 2 - 5:22 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (knee) is questionable for Week 13.

Amerson is expected to play after sitting out last week. His return is a needed upgrade to the Raiders’ secondary. Amerson was PFF’s No. 18 corner before going down.
Dec 2 - 5:11 PM

Redskins waived SS David Bruton.

Bruton was placed on injured reserve with a concussion about two months ago. He was having a dismal year before his injury, grading out as PFF's No. 79 safety out of 81 qualifiers. Bruton inked a three-year, $9 million deal with Washington last offseason.
Dec 2 - 5:03 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bills.

Crabtree was limited at all three practices this week. Coming off a 100-yard game in Week 12, Crabtree should be a solid WR2 for Sunday's home game against Buffalo.
Dec 2 - 4:36 PM

Latavius Murray (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bills.

Murray should be ready to roll against Buffalo after putting in a limited week of practice. Despite ranking only 23rd in the league in carries, Murray is tied for fourth with nine rushing touchdowns this season. He'll be in the RB2 mix this week.
Dec 2 - 4:32 PM

Theo Riddick (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Riddick went through another "limited" practice week, but he's in no danger of sitting out against the Saints. The style of that game suits Riddick's skill set. He's an intriguing DFS play on full-PPR sites.
Dec 2 - 4:30 PM

Chris Hogan (back) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

He was limited every day at practice this week. Hogan returned to action last week following a one-game absence and played over 90 percent of New England's offensive snaps. Hogan carries only minimal fantasy significance.
Dec 2 - 4:27 PM

Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

Bennett isn't 100 percent or probably anywhere close to it, but he'll give it a go this week with Rob Gronkowski (back) on the shelf. Even at less than full strength, Bennett should see enough targets to warrant TE1 consideration in a good matchup against the struggling Rams.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: After burning his DFS owners in recent weeks, this is a great spot to get a high-upside option at a low ownership percentage. Our projected ownership page has him at 3% in GPPs, and with Gronk out for awhile, Bennett should be at least 5-8 times as popular. He's been a disappointment in the last two games, but should see an uptick in targets in Week 13. Los Angeles has allowed the 10th most TDs per game to TEs on the year. The TE spot isn't that deep this week, especially on the high end, so saving cap here is recommended.
