Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. Philly sits 2nd in fantasy points allowed to TEs but just 16th in Football Outsiders’ TE coverage rankings. Walker should also have volume on his side today. He’s a fine fantasy starter.

CBS' Tracy Wolfson reports that Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will play against the Broncos today.  He's listed as questionable with shoulder and knee injuries.  The shoulder isn't a concern, but it's unclear if the knee will be a factor.  Miller also has a tough matchup vs. a Denver defense allowing just 3.0 yards per carry to RBs.  Consider him a low-end RB2 for Week 12.

Bucs RBs Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) are both active for today’s game against the Bears. That’s a sweet matchup, but we don’t know exactly how the touches will be divvied in Tampa’s backfield. It makes Martin and Sims shaky fantasy plays.

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. He put in 3 limited practices this week, but Detroit is holding him out until he’s back to 100%. Theo Riddick gets another game as the pass-catching back, but he’s just a low-end RB3 or flex in PPR leagues.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (hip) is active for today’s game against the Texans. It’s unclear exactly how the touches will be divvied in Cincy’s backfield. We’re betting on Jeremy Hill leading the way in carries but Bernard still getting 12-15 total touches. It makes him a lower-end RB2 against a mediocre Texans run defense.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. That should mean another big workload for RB Alfred Blue. Cincinnati ranks 28th in fantasy points allowed to WRs and has allowed 4.4 yards per carry to RBs.

Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He’s not a recommended fantasy play vs. his old team.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that "it would take a miracle" for Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald to play against the Seahawks today.  Fitz is dealing with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, which is a partial tear of the ligament.  Even if he's active later this afternoon, he won't be anywhere close to 100%.  Fitzgerald needs to be on fantasy benches.  Look for John Brown and Michael Floyd to serve as Arizona's top 2 WRs against a tough Seahawks secondary.

Today's Bucs-Bears game in Chicago is expected to be played in windy conditions.  The current forecast calls for 15 mph winds with gusts up to 22.  Any rain in the area is expected to move out before kickoff.  The weather isn't enough for us to move anyone in the game up or down our Week 12 Rankings, but you might use it as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked options.

Patriots RB Jonas Gray will play against the Lions today, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.  That only became a question when Gray showed up late and was sent home from practice on Friday.  It's still possible that his role is altered because of that blunder.  La Canfora adds that RB LeGarrette Blount will also be active today, and that Gray's role will depend on "game circumstances and production."  It's impossible to know exactly what New England's game plan will be today, but the best guess is pass-heavy against a Lions team that is stronger against the run than the pass.  It makes Gray a risk/reward Week 12 fantasy play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) is a "true game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Dolphins. "Not even he knows if he's good to go," Rapoport adds.  It's a tough spot for fantasy owners with Denver-Miami kicking off at 4:25 pm ET.  If you're hoping to start Thomas, Jacob Tamme is your best insurance policy.  Other late-game fill-ins include Jared Cook, Niles Paul and Owen Daniels.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to play 20-30 snaps in his 2014 debut today.  For context, Cleveland has averaged 70 offensive snaps per game this season.  Gordon's playing time could grow if he gets into an early groove.  And he'll be featured whenever he's on the field.  There's still obvious upside here considering Gordon's talent and a plus matchup against the Falcons.  But he shouldn't be considered a safe Week 12 fantasy play.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is probable for Monday night's game against the Ravens.  He put in 3 limited practices this week and is set to return to his pass-catching role.  Consider Thomas a risky RB3 or flex in PPR leagues in his 1st game since Week 7.  RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) is out again.  He still hasn't returned to practice and has no timetable for return.  RB Mark Ingram will remain New Orleans' clear lead ball carrier against Baltimore.
