Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Nov 19 - 11:26 AM

Leonard Fournette (questionable, ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Browns.

Fournette's ankle is still bothering him but apparently he showed enough in pre-game warmups to get the green light for Sunday's game in Cleveland. The Jaguars may be tempted to lean on their ground attack with winds expected in the range of 20-25 mph throughout the game. Even at less than 100 percent, Fournette remains on the RB1 spectrum.

Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports Trevor Siemian will be inactive for Week 11 against the Bengals.

That means he's been passed on the depth chart by Paxton Lynch, who will serve as the backup to Brock Osweiler in Week 11. Lynch has missed most of the year with a sprained shoulder but was cleared to return after putting in a full week of practice. With Osweiler struggling and Siemian demoted to third-string status, there's a good chance Lynch will ascend to lead status before the year is over.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "there's growing frustration" with the Broncos' offensive scheme.

The front office believes "playcalling has been an issue," suggesting OC Mike McCoy is on the hot seat. The Broncos have been blown out the last five weeks and rank near the bottom of the league in points per game. They also have one of the worst quarterback situations in the league with Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler. The Broncos are expected to simplify their playbook down the stretch. McCoy's return to Denver could last only one year if the offense doesn't turn around.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Ravens are "demoting" Breshad Perriman.

This comes after Perriman worked with the scout team during practice this week. It's unclear what the demotion will entail, though Perriman can probably expect to be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Packers. A first-round pick of the Ravens in 2015, Perriman has been a complete and utter bust, earning PFF's No. 112 grade out of 114 qualifiers at wide receiver this season. According to Rapoport, Perriman's demotion may only last one week depending on how he responds. With Perriman riding the pine, Michael Campanaro will likely line up in three-wide sets alongside Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace.

Giants RT Chad Wheeler will start Week 11 against the Chiefs.

The undrafted rookie is filling in for Justin Pugh, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Wheeler has played just two snaps this year, with both coming in a Week 4 loss to Tampa Bay. He'll have his work cut out for him protecting Eli Manning against four-time Pro Bowler Justin Houston. Kansas City's defense will be a chalky DFS play this week against the overmatched Giants.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby said he was in the car with Jameis Winston on the night of his alleged groping incident and claims Winston did "nothing inappropriate."

Winston has been accused of groping a female Uber driver while waiting for a fast-food pickup on March 13, 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona, though Winston's camp has denied the allegations. Darby, a college teammate of Winston's, has corroborated Winston's claim that he was not alone in the car, claiming there were "three of us" and that "Jameis did not have any physical contact with the Uber driver." The NFL is still looking into the incident.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bills coach Sean McDermott is "optimistic" Charles Clay (questionable, knee) and Jordan Matthews (questionable, knee) will play Week 11 against the Chargers.

He and Matthews will be game-time decisions, though the early indication is that both will be ready for Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff in Los Angeles. Clay looked rusty in his return from knee surgery last week, delivering just two catches for 13 yards in a blowout loss to New Orleans. He'll be little more than a last-gasp TE2 if he suits up.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Sterling Shepard (questionable, illness) is dealing with migraines.

Shepard was added to the injury report on Saturday with an undisclosed illness, which has now been confirmed as migraines. He's still considered a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt versus Kansas City, though ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier that Shepard will likely be inactive. Impressive rookie Evan Engram would remain Eli Manning's go-to receiver if the migraines prevent Shepard from suiting up.
Nov 19 - 8:11 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Kenny Stills (questionable, back) is expected to play Week 11 against the Buccaneers.

Stills exited Thursday's practice with back spasms and wasn't on the field for Friday's session. It looks like Stills will tough it out Sunday against Tampa Bay, though he could be at risk of an in-game setback. Even in a good matchup, he's just a dart-throw WR4.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (questionable, back, groin) won't play Week 11 against the Eagles.

This confirms an earlier report from Rapoport's NFL Network colleague, Jane Slater. Smith was surprisingly listed as questionable for Sunday night's game, though he was always a long shot to play after sitting out practice all week. Byron Bell will spell Smith at left tackle against the Eagles. The Cowboys are hoping he'll be an improvement on Chaz Green, who was thoroughly dominated by Adrian Clayborn (six sacks) in last week's loss to Atlanta. Consider Smith week-to-week.
Nov 19 - 8:07 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Terrance West (questionable, calf) may be a healthy scratch for Week 11 against the Packers.

His calf injury is no longer a concern after putting in a full week of practice, but it looks like the Ravens are only going to dress three running backs for Sunday's game, leaving West as the odd man out. Assuming that's the case, Baltimore will roll with Alex Collins, Buck Allen and Danny Woodhead, who was activated off I.R. on Saturday after missing the previous eight games with a torn hamstring. West belongs on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.
Nov 19 - 8:05 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are "optimistic" Leonard Fournette (questionable, ankle) will play Week 11 against the Browns.

The plan is for Fournette to test out his ankle during pre-game warmups, though the Jags think he'll be a go for Sunday's 1 PM ET kickoff in Cleveland. Fournette didn't look right in last week's win over the Chargers and drew the questionable tag after sitting out Friday's practice. Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon would handle the backfield work if Fournette sits another week. It would be his third absence in four games.
Nov 19 - 8:04 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jaguars are "non-committal" on Leonard Fournette (ankle) playing Week 11 against the Browns.

Schefter reports the team will have Fournette test out his ankle pregame, making him a true game-time decision. Likely to beat the Browns regardless, it would not be surprising if Jacksonville decides to play it safe with their best offensive player. Both Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will be usable if Fournette sits, but Ivory will be the better fantasy bet.
Nov 19 - 1:44 AM

John Brown (back) is expected to play Week 11 against the Texans.

Brown appeared to be truly questionable after sitting out Thursday's practice and getting in just a limited session on Friday, but it looks like he will give it a go. He has a great matchup against the Texans, but Brown has not done much of fantasy note since Carson Palmer went down.
