NFL Week 13 – Injury Check Down Report

Tyler Eifert

Tyler Eifert missed practice all week and is NOT expected to suit up against Cleveland

Tyler Eifert – OUT:  Eifert did not practice all week and is very doubtful this week against the Cleveland Browns. Tyler Kroft will get the start.

Rob Gronowski – OUT:  New England Patriots Tight End will not play against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Heath Miller – Doubtful:  Miller is VERY unlikely to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night. Jesse James is expected to get the start.

Maxx Williams – OUT:  Will not play against the Miami Dolphins. Crockett Gilmore will be the starter and Nick Boyle will be the backup.

Zach Miller – Miller is listed as questionable this week. He practiced on a limited basis, but should play against the San Francisco 49ers. If he plays, his upside is capped by the return of Matellus Bennett.

Devonta Freeman – Freeman is expected to return this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Start him with confidence.

Ryan Mathews – OUT:  Mathews will not play this week against the New England Patriots, Demarco Murray and Darren Sproles will be in the backfield.

Carlos Hyde – OUT:  Hyde will not play this week against the Chicago Bears.

Charcandrick West – West will play against the Oakland Raiders. Expect him to split carries with Spencer Ware.

Allen Hurns – OUT:  Hurns will not play against the Tennessee Titans Sunday. Expect Julius Thomas and Allen Robinson to get more looks from Blake Bortles.

Michael Floyd – Floyd is questionable this week and was limited in practice, but should start against the Rams.

Danny Amendola – Amendola is questionable this week and should play against the Philadelphia Eagles. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan just in case.

DeAndre Hopkins – It’s all systems go for Hopkins who will play against the Buffalo Bills this week.

Leonard Hankerson – OUT:  Hankerson was placed on IR and is done for the year. Jacob Tamme will become the number one tight end and should be owned by fantasy owners in Hankerson’s absence.

Marquess Wilson – OUT:  Wilson will not play against the 49ers as he deals with a foot injury, expect Alshon Jeffrey to be targeted even more by Cutler.

Willie Snead – OUT:  Snead will not play this week against the Carolina Panthers. Expect him to return within the next week or so.

Ben Roethlisberger – Big Ben is not only expected to play, but put up top fantasy numbers this week against a beatable Colts secondary.

Sam Bradford –  Bradford is expected to return this week. If he can’t go, Mark Sanchez will lead the Eagles stumbling offense against the Patriots.
