J Thomas (JAX)

Julius Thomas held out of Wednesday's practice
Jaguars beat writer Mike DiRocco suggests that the "the team doesn't have a good idea on when -- or even if -- he'll [Thomas] return to the field this season" as he is dealing with a lingering back injury. Thomas missed three games in 2016 due to injury and struggled to stay on the field since joining the Jaguars last season - he's missed seven games since the start of the 2015 campaign. Thomas could be held out for the rest of the year as the team is not in playoff contention.

Fantasy Spin:
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas (back) didn't practice Wednesday.

M Thomas (NOS)

Michael Thomas sits out of practice Wednesday
Michael didn't practice Wednesday as he is dealing with a foot injury. He was bottled up by the Lions' secondary last week and has a juicy matchup ahead with Tampa Bay to get back on track. He borders the WR1/WR2 tier if he is active in Week 14.

Fantasy Spin:
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas (foot) did not practice Wednesday.
01:21 PM
A Luck (IND)

Andrew Luck limited Wednesday
Luck was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice as he is dealing with a lingering right shoulder injury. He is good to go for his upcoming matchup against the Texans barring a setback, however. Luck is in the high-end QB1 tier for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin:
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited during Wednesday's practice.
01:16 PM
A Rodgers (GBP)

Aaron Rodgers limited Wednesday
Despite being limited Wednesday with a hamstring injury suffered in Week 12, there is no concern regarding his playing status for Sunday's contest against Seattle. He will play barring a setback. Rodgers is a high-end QB1 in a home matchup with the Seahawks, whose defense is without its version of the quarterback, Earl Thomas.

Fantasy Spin:
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was limited during Wednesday's practice.
01:51 AM
E Ebron (DET)

Eric Ebron limited on Wednesday
It's worth noting that the often-questionable Eric Ebron has missed 1/4 of the season and was blanked by the Vikings, but has still managed to crack the top 20 in standard scoring at his position. He's nursing a knee injury and had to leave Sunday's game against New Orleans briefly, but remains a reasonable TE2 option against the Chicago Bears this weekend, provided he takes the field.

Fantasy Spin:
Eric Ebron (knee) took limited reps at practice Wednesday, December 7.
01:14 AM
D Washington (DET)

Dwayne Washington limited Wednesday
Washington left Sunday's game after sustaining an ankle injury, so it's encouraging to see him take the practice field today. That said, Washington's fantasy upside is limited by the presence of Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner and owners shouldn't be too concerned with his health or availability unless one of those backs sustains an injury or doesn't play Sunday.

Fantasy Spin:
Dwayne Washington (ankle) took limited reps at practice Wednesday, December 7.
01:09 AM
T Riddick (DET)

Theo Riddick misses practice Wednesday
Riddick's ankle might be healed, but he appears today on the Lions' injury report with what appears to be a new injury to one of his upper limbs. Given how much the team leaned on Dwayne Washington and, later Zach Zenner, against the Saints, it's extra worrisome to see Riddick missing practice today. It's possible this injury affected his production against New Orleans, which was salvaged by his early receiving touchdown, and owners should monitor his status heading into the first weekend of the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Spin:
Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, December 7, following a game in which he ceded quite a few snaps to rookie Dwayne Washington.
01:03 AM
M Jones (DET)

Marvin Jones limited at Wednesday's practice
After weeks of being limited at game time, Jones finally missed a contest last weekend but is being eased back into practice ahead of the Lions' game against Chicago. It's unlikely the team will rush him into appearing against their struggling division rival, so owners hoping for Jones's availability for the first weekend of the fantasy playoffs should monitor his status closely this week.

Fantasy Spin:
Marvin Jones (quad) was a limited practice participant today, Wednesday, December 7, after missing Sunday's game against New Orleans.
01:00 AM
J Forsett (DEN)

Justin Forsett to 'split work' with Devontae Booker
Forsett, who is familiar with Kubiak's system due to their tenure in Baltimore together, will assume an increased workload upon his first game with Denver on Sunday against the Titans. The Broncos are Forsett's third team this season and he had failed to impress during his time with the other two. In five games with the Lions and Ravens, he totaled 187 yards on 57 touches and has yet to score a touchdown. Forsett is worth an add from the waiver wire as a lottery ticket for the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak said that running back Justin Forsett will "split" the workload with RB Devontae Booker in Week 14.
12:57 AM
S Diggs (MIN)

Stefon Diggs limited at Wednesday's practice
Diggs had a decent showing against Dallas coming back from injury but underperformed based on what we saw early in the year. Given his limited practice status, Diggs could still be affected by his knee injury and owners considering him as a flex option in the fantasy playoffs should monitor his health closely this week. If necessary, owners may want to look to Adam Thielen as a possible alternative, as Thielen has been relatively steadily of late, grabbing 40 or more yards or a touchdown every game since Week 5.

Fantasy Spin:
Stefon Diggs (knee) took limited reps at practice Wednesday, December 7.
12:51 AM
E Royal (CHI)

Eddie Royal misses Wednesday's practice
Royal hasn't practiced or played much since his Week 6 injury against Jacksonville and, even if he does take some practice reps this week and suits up Sunday, shouldn't be relied on for much fantasy production given the state of Chicago's offense.

Fantasy Spin:
Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice on Wednesday, December 7.

J Maclin (KCC)

Jeremy Maclin (groin) will play on Thursday Night Football
Jeremy Maclin's return doesn't return him as Alex Smith's usual number one target on offense. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce have dominated targets and touches with Maclin out. We'd still leave Hill as a high-upside WR3 and Maclin as a low-floor WR4 even in a favorable matchup against the Raiders.

Fantasy Spin:
Jeremy Maclin will play on Thursday Night Football despite missing the previous four games with a groin injury.
09:07 PM
L Kuechly (CAR)

Luke Kuechly (concussion) returns to practice on Wednesday
Luke Kuechly has missed the previous two games with a scary concussion suffered in Week 11. Kuechly participated in some portions of practice with a helmet making him close to or finished with the final stages of the concussion protocol. With Kuechly out, the Panthers DST have allowed 75 points over the past two games. With playoff chances slim, the Panthers would be smart to hold Kuechly out. However, they aren't mathematically eliminated and face the Chargers in Week 14. If he isn't able to suit up, Melvin Gordon will run all over the Panthers DST.

Fantasy Spin:
Luke Kuechly has returned to practice on Wednesday.
07:39 PM

Robert Griffin's Week 14 status unknown
Griffin has been sidelined since Week 1 with a broken collarbone. If he's not ready to start, then it looks like Cody Kessler would be under center for Cleveland. For what it's worth, Jackson did state that Griffin is "getting closer" to a return.

Fantasy Spin:
While it was reported earlier in the week that Robert Griffin was expected to return as the Browns' starter this week against the Bengals, Hue Jackson stated at his Wednesday press conference that he's not ready to name Griffin as his starter just yet.
06:58 PM
M Bennett (NEP)

Martellus Bennett not out practice on Wednesday
With Rob Gronkowski done for the year, Bennett is the Patriots only healthy weapon at TE. The team will be limiting his reps during the week to help preserve him. He has yet to establish him as a TE1 in the absence of Gronkowski but will get another chance on Monday when the Patriots face the Ravens.

Fantasy Spin:
Martellus Bennett (ankle/shoulder) was not present for practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
