Preston Brown, LB CIN

1 hour ago

Brown lands on IR

The Bengals have placed MLB Preston Brown on IR with the knee injury that cost him Week 11. That should mean Hardy Nickerson retains the starting job in the middle, after he played every snap in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. We'll see what happens to the playing time as OLB Vontaze Burfict continues to work back in and when OLB Nick Vigil returns.

The Bucs have placed TE O.J. Howard on IR with the ankle injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Giants. It ends a promising sophomore campaign that saw Howard haul in 34 of 48 targets (71%) for 565 yards (16.6 YPC) and 5 TDs in 10 games. He's sitting 6th among TEs in PPR points and 5th in non-PPR through Week 11. Howard's absence the rest of the way leaves Cameron Brate as Tampa's lead TE and a viable fantasy option -- especially as long as Jameis Winston is under center.

Update: The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports that Howard has both ankle and foot injuries. Neither is expected to affect him long term.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase announced Tuesday that QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will start this weekend's game against the Colts. He's been out since Week 5 but threw earlier on Tuesday and evidently felt and looked good enough. Tannehill was sitting 25th among QBs in fantasy points through 5 weeks and returns as just a QB2.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Tuesday that he's "cautiously optimistic" about QB Mitchell Trubisky's status for Thursday's game against the Lions. Trubisky injured his throwing shoulder on a 4th-quarter hit from Vikings S Harrison Smith on Sunday night. "He's day-to-day," Nagy said. "Don't think he'll be out there today practicing ... I'm staying cautiously optimistic, but I don't want to make any promises. He wants to play. We have to make sure we're doing the right thing." We'll continue to monitor this situation over the next 48 hours. If Trubisky can't play on Thanksgiving, QB Chase Daniel would get the start. He's a capable backup and would be in play in 2-QB leagues and DFS lineups.

The 49ers got S Jaquiski Tartt and LB Reuben Foster back for Monday's light practice, according to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee. Tartt (shoulder) and Foster (hamstring) each missed the past 2 games after going down in Week 8. If they stay on track for Sunday, each would be an immediate IDP option in a high-upside matchup with the Buccaneers.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky was listed as a non-participant on Monday with a right shoulder issue. This might just be a rest day, but the fact that it's Trubisky's throwing shoulder makes the situation worth monitoring. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim will undergo surgery after fracturing his wrist in Sunday's win over the Falcons, HC Jason Garrett announced Monday. The team isn't yet ruling Swaim out for the rest of the season, but he figures to miss multiple weeks. When Swaim was sidelined for Week 9, TEs Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers all played between 31% and 46% of the offensive snaps. This is a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups for now.

Update: Jerry Jones expects Swaim to miss 3-4 weeks, meaning he'd return in Week 15 or 16. Swaim isn't worth stashing on fantasy benches.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. It's a mild surprise after he didn't practice on Friday or Saturday. Watkins comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups but packs plenty of upside in this likely shootout.

Raiders HC Jay Gruden talked up RB Jalen Richard on Monday, comparing him to Charlie Garner. "He could run for 1,000 yards and catch for 1,000 yards someday," Gruden said (very optimistically) of Richard. "He is tough, hard to tackle. And he can line up in the slot or outside." The comments are especially noteworthy after Richard carried a season-high 11 times for 61 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. With RB Doug Martin dealing with an ankle injury, Richard might be the most productive Raiders RB the rest of the way.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday that TE Jimmy Graham plans to play through the broken thumb he suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Seahawks. We'll watch his participation this week to see whether that'll work out. We'll hope to get word on whether Graham will play well before the Sunday night kickoff at Minnesota. If Graham can't go, then Lance Kendricks would be next up among Green Bay TEs -- if you're desperate.
