Date Player
11/22/2017 Andre Ellington, Hou, RB
The Texans have added Ellington, who had been released by the Cardinals.

Analysis: Ellington, whose cousin Bruce Ellington is a wide receiver for the Texans, has caught 33 passes for 297 yards out of the backfield this season, and rushed for 53 yards on 15 carries.
11/22/2017 Kenny Vaccaro, NO, S
Vaccaro says he'll return Sunday against the Rams.

Analysis: This would be a big boost for a Saints defense that didn't look particularly good against the Redskins.
11/22/2017 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pit, WR
Smith-Schuster didn't practice Wednesday as he deals with a sore hamstring.

Analysis: It's not expected to keep him out Sunday night against the Packers, but if ever the Steelers were going to be extra cautious, this would be the week.
11/22/2017 C.J. Beathard, SF, QB
Beathard will start in Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Jimmy Garoppolo's time is certainly coming, but it would have been tough to bench Beathard after his excellent pre-bye week showing against the Giants. Given the Seahawks' injuries, perhaps he'll play well again.
11/22/2017 David Johnson, Ari, RB
Johnson isn't expected to return this season.

Analysis: This isn't particularly surprising. The Cardinals are out of the playoff hunt and there's no sense risking his long-term health.
11/22/2017 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton was limited in practice with a right thumb injury, but the Panthers don't seem too concerned.

Analysis: Newton should be fine for Sunday against the Jets. Keep an eye on the weather in New Jersey, as that's more likely to affect his throwing than his thumb.
11/22/2017 Ryan Grant, Was, WR
Grant is questionable for the Redskins' game against the Giants on Thursday.

Analysis: Grant is good for about three catches a week and has totaled three TDs this season.
11/22/2017 Albert Wilson, KC, WR
Wilson returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since pulling his hamstring in Week 8.

Analysis: He seems to be on track to return for Sunday's home game against the Bills, where he'll likely retake the starting No. 2 job from Demarcus Robinson.
11/22/2017 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette was limited in practice Wednesday, but remains on track to play Sunday in Arizona.

Analysis: Fournette knows his ankle may both him all season, but he still topped 100 yards last week against the Browns.
11/22/2017 Dan Bailey, Dal, K
Bailey (groin) has a chance to play on Thanksgiving, according to Jerry Jones, and is listed as questionable.

Analysis: One of the game's top kickers hasn't taken the field since getting hurt in Week 7.
11/22/2017 Zach Brown, Was, LB
Brown is questionable for Thursday's game against the Giants with an Achilles injury.

Analysis: Brown is the league's leading tackler. He's been limited in practice but should be good enough to play on Thanksgiving.
11/22/2017 Anthony Hitchens, Dal, LB
Hitchens is questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers because of a groin injury.

Analysis: The fourth-year pro has become an even more important part of the defense with star linebacker Sean Lee sidelined. Hitchens has 36 tackles in six games.
11/22/2017 Samaje Perine, Was, RB
Perine is listed as questionable for a Thanksgiving matchup with the Giants because of a finger injury.

Analysis: Though this is something to keep an eye on because Perine has been limited in practice, he is expected to play and be the every-down back now that Chris Thompson is out.
11/22/2017 Olivier Vernon, NYG, DE
Vernon (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Analysis: He has missed time with an ankle problem, then hurt his shoulder on Sunday. Vernon has two sacks in six games.
11/22/2017 Jordan Reed, Was, TE
Reed won't play Thursday against the Giants, the fourth straight game he's missed with a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Reed has 27 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns this season in five games.
11/22/2017 Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB
Coleman should start this week with Devonta Freeman reportedly still in concussion protocol.

Analysis: Coleman only had 43 yards on 20 carries against the Seahawks, though perhaps he'll find things better against the Bucs.
11/22/2017 Devonta Freeman, Atl, RB
Freeman remains in the concussion protocol and is unlikely to return Sunday against the Bucs although he thinks he will.

Analysis: This would mean another start for Tevin Coleman, so plan accordingly.
11/22/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Cutler remains in concussion protocol as of Wednesday, but hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Analysis: Coach Adam Gase declined to say whether he would consider starting Cutler even if the veteran misses the entire week of practice.
11/22/2017 Nathan Peterman, Buf, QB
Peterman is back on the bench this week after his five-interception debut.

Analysis: If you were reading this looking for advice on whether you should play Nathan Peterman in a fantasy league, you've already lost.
11/22/2017 Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB
Taylor is the Bills' starter again this week at Kansas City after Nathan Peterman's disastrous debut.

Analysis: Taylor should be extra motivated to play well this week and Kansas City's pass defense was in bad shape until facing Eli Manning and a stiff breeze last week.
