The Bills and Jets' Week 12 game will be played at 7ET Monday evening in Detroit.

It's the second time in five years Detroit has hosted wayward snow travelers, as the Vikings and Giants squared off in Motown on Dec. 13, 2010. It's the most-fair solution, as playing in MetLife Stadium would have been an unfair advantage for the Jets in a game the Bills have to win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Aside from the change of venue, the change of schedule has no fantasy ramifications. All points will count for Week 12 as normal.

Marshawn Lynch (back) remained out of Seahawks practice Thursday.

Lynch has been practicing very little in recent weeks, but it hasn't affected him on Sundays. Even in a tough matchup with the Cardinals, he's a high-end RB1 for Week 12.
Nov 20 - 7:20 PM

Speaking before Thursday's game against the Chiefs, Raiders coach Tony Sparano said RB Latavius Murray will "get the ball a little bit more."

Faded Darren McFadden is still getting the "start," but it sounds like the Raiders finally understand they have to do something to jump-start their historically-awful rushing "attack." We wouldn't recommend Murray as more than an RB4 in re-draft leagues, but he's a go-for-the-gold option in daily tournaments.
Nov 20 - 7:06 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) is active for Week 12 against the Raiders.

Fasano has zero fantasy value, but his presence renders Travis Kelce a boom-or-bust option as a TE1. Inactive for the Chiefs are QB Aaron Murray, WR Donnie Avery, WR A.J. Jenkins, CB Chris Owens, CB Jamell Fleming, C Eric Kush and G/T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. The Chiefs are remarkably thin at receiver.
Nov 20 - 6:59 PM

Derek Carr (quad) is active for Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Carr's status was never in doubt. He's a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Chiefs' stout pass defense. Oakland's passing "attack" has really gone in the tank the past few weeks. Inactive for the Raiders are QB Matt McGloin, CB Carlos Rogers, CB Travis Carrie, S Jonathan Dowling, OG Gabe Jackson, OG Tony Bergstrom and TE David Ausberry.
Nov 20 - 6:57 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) is practicing in full for Week 12.

The "injury" is not a concern for Matthews' Week 12 status. Currently Mark Sanchez's favorite target, Matthews will be an upside WR3 against the Titans.
Nov 20 - 6:53 PM

Justin Hunter (knee) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

The infuriating WR5 will be good to go for a plus matchup with the Eagles.
Nov 20 - 6:52 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) remained limited on Thursday.

It's not a given that Martin suits up for Sunday's game against the Bears, but he's trending in the right direction. Most signs point toward Martin being the Bucs' No. 3 back behind Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey upon his return, though it's possible he'll slot in ahead of Rainey. We just won't know until the Bucs play.
Nov 20 - 6:51 PM

Chris Johnson is listed on the Week 12 injury report with an ankle issue, but practicing in full.

Johnson is an RB4/5 for this week's tough matchup with the Bills.
Nov 20 - 6:49 PM

Chris Ivory is listed on the Week 12 injury report with a shoulder issue, but practicing in full.

Ivory will be ready to rock as a borderline RB2 for a tough matchup with the Bills, wherever and whenever it takes place.
Nov 20 - 6:47 PM

Ryan Mallett is listed on the Week 12 injury report with a chest issue, but practicing in full.

Mallett's health isn't a concern for his second NFL start, but his matchup is. The Bengals boast one of the league's best pass defenses, and shut down Drew Brees in Week 11. Mallett isn't a recommended tournament play in daily leagues.
Nov 20 - 5:55 PM

Andre Ellington (hip, foot) remained limited on Thursday.

Averaging just 1.75 yards per carry over his past two games, Ellington is on the RB1 borderline for Sunday's rough matchup with the Seahawks.
Nov 20 - 5:53 PM

Jared Cook (back) returned to Rams practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

He'll be good to go as a top-15 option against the Chargers.
Nov 20 - 5:34 PM

Julian Edelman (thigh) remained limited on Thursday.

Edelman tweaked his thigh in Sunday's win over the Colts, but played through the injury. He should be ready to roll as a WR3 against the Lions.
Nov 20 - 5:26 PM

Charles Sims was added to the Bucs' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with an ankle issue.

It's an eye-brow raising add to the injury report for a player who missed the first nine weeks of the season with an ankle injury, but we haven't seen any other reason to worry about Sims' Week 12 availability. His status will obviously be worth double-checking on Friday, but this is likely just a case of the Bucs getting Sims some rest coming off his first two NFL games.
