11/23/2017 Dak Prescott, Dal, QB
Dak Prescott was 20 of 27 for 179 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Thursday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He threw two interceptions, didn't fumble and was sacked two times.

Analysis: In the Cowboys' three games minus Ezekiel Elliott, they've totaled 22 points with Prescott held under 180 yards and failing to throw for a touchdown in each of those losses. That's enough of a sample size to recommend sitting the struggling quarterback while Elliott serves out the remainder of his suspension.
11/23/2017 Trent Williams, Was, T
Williams is inactive for Thursday's game against the Giants due to a lingering right knee injury.

Analysis: Williams missed two games earlier this season with the injury and wasn't able to go on a short week. With left guard Shawn Lauvao and center Spencer Long landing on injured reserve recently, the Redskins are now down three starts up front.
11/23/2017 Mike Williams, LAC, WR
Williams was carted off the field in the first quarter Thursday against the Cowboys with a knee injury and will not return.

Analysis: The rookie had been nursing a knee problem going into the game. Injuries have ruined the No. 7 overall pick's season as he's totaled just nine catches for 84 yards in five games.
11/23/2017 Kai Forbath, Min, K
Kai Forbath converted one of two field-goal attempts Thursday as the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Detroit Lions 30-23. He made a kick of 36 yards, and missed a 53-yarder. Forbath tacked on three PATs, but also missed one.
11/23/2017 Matt Prater, Det, K
Matt Prater converted three of three field-goal attempts Thursday as the Detroit Lions lost to the Minnesota Vikings 30-23. He made kicks of 32, 32 and 50 yards. Prater tacked on two PATs.
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) is active Thursday against the Chargers for the first time since getting hurt in Week 7.

Analysis: One of the game's top kickers being in means Mike Nugent is inactive.
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, but he did return to practice Thursday on a limited basis.

Analysis: This would mean another start for Tevin Coleman if Freeman sits out again, so plan accordingly. Freeman is listed as questionable.
11/22/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Cutler did some light throwing Thursday as he remains in concussion protocol, but he 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 doesn't get in a full 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.
