Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports that NFL stat corrections have awarded a forced fumble and an assisted tackle on top of the Week 17 stars for Colts LB Darius Leonard. That could be a pretty significant points addition, which will vary quite a bit between scoring formats. If Leonard played on either team in your league’s title game, the check your scores

The Colts have activated LB Darius Leonard and S Khari Willis off the COVID list, leaving them eligible to face the Raiders on Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Colts LB Darius Leonard tested positive for COVID and is unvaccinated. That means he'll not only miss tonight's game against the Cardinals, but also Week 17. That makes Leonard droppable in most redraft IDP leagues. E.J. Speed sits behind him on the depth chart. We'd try to find a sturdier fantasy option for the final 2 weeks of the fantasy season, though.

The Colts have placed LB Darius Leonard and S Khari Willis on the COVID list, knocking them out for tonight's game against the Cardinals. Those are significant losses for the Colts D -- especially Leonard -- but perhaps even more so for IDP lineups.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Friday that QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, while QB Justin Fields (ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday or Friday. Nagy said that Fields might be active on Sunday, but it'd be as Foles' backup. Foles made 7 starts for the Bears last season, averaging 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on a 66% completion rate and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Browns K Chase McLaughlin has been placed on the COVID list and will miss Saturday's game vs. the Packers. He'll be replaced by K Chris Naggar, who has yet to attempt a regular-season kick. Look elsewhere for Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Colts S Andrew Sendejo left Saturday's win over the Patriots with a concussion. He's now in the league protocol.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bucs. It's not a surprise with the power running game unlikely to be a big part of Buffalo's game plan today. Devin Singletary and Matt Breida will handle backfield duties for the Bills, but neither is a good fantasy bet.

6:55pm EST 12/6/21

Bills RB Zack Moss is active for tonight's game vs. the Patriots after getting healthy scratched last week. He joins Devin Singletary and Matt Breida in the backfield. Buffalo figures to run it more tonight than usual in snowy and windy conditions.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is active for today's game against the Texans. He was questionable, primarily for a knee injury, but finished the week with a full practice. Buckner belongs in IDP lineups in most cases. Questionable S Andrew Sendejo (calf) is also active.

The Colts have activated S Khari Willis off IR. He's expected to play Sunday against the Texans after missing the past 4 games with a calf injury.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He's dealing with knee and foot issues, though the knee seemed more significant to begin the week. He close out the week with full Friday participation after a return to limited action Thursday, though. Buckner seems on track to play and should be in IDP lineups if active (barring some announcement of a limited role). S Andrew Sendejo (calf) is also questionable after following the same practice progression as Buckner through the week.

The Colts on Wednesday designated S Khari Willis to return from IR. He missed the past 4 games with a calf injury but appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Texans. Willis' return would shove S George Odum out of the starting lineup.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner came away from Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a knee injury that has his status iffy for Week 13. “I don’t know if we’re going to see him at the beginning of the week,” HC Frank Reich said Monday, according to the Indianapolis Star, referring to the start of the practice week. “We’ll hopefully see him at the end of the week, but we’re going to have to take it day by day. There’s no guarantee on him.” Losing Buckner would be a significant absence for the Colts D and IDP lineups, but a matchup with Houston would soften the blow for Indy.

Colts LB Darius Leonard (ankle) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. He entered the day questionable but appears to be operating at a similar level to wear he's been. The ankle has been a season-long issue.

Colts LB Darius Leonard (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He practiced every day this week, including a full workout Friday. So we'd bet on Leonard playing, especially after he played through a questionable tag last week after less practice participation. It also seems pretty clear that he's operating at less than 100%, though.

Raiders CB Brandon Facyson left Thursday's win over the Cowboys with a concussion. He'll have an extended week to make it back for Vegas' Week 13 contest. We'll see whether that's enough. We'll also see whether the Raiders expect to get CB Trayvon Mullen back from IR anytime soon.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Buffalo will roll with RBs Devin Singletary and Matt Breida. "I think it'll be a 1A/1B situation unless someone gets hot," The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia wrote, labeling Singletary the 1A. In a matchup vs. the league's top-ranked RB defense, consider Singletary and Breida just RB3 or flex options.

Raiders CB Brandon Facyson (finger, hamstring) is active for today's game against the Bengals.

Colts LB Darius Leonard (hand, ankle) is active for today's game against the Bills. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.
