Texans S Lonnie Johnson (knee) is active for today's game against the Colts. A knee issue limited Johnson's participation Friday and landed him as questionable on the final injury report. But it sounds like he's ready for low-level IDP use if he was in your plans.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Jaguars. He had fallen to 4th on the depth chart last week, playing just 1 snap. So there's not much of a fantasy impact here. J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will again serve as Baltimore's top 3 RBs today.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (neck) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Colts and is safe to get back into fantasy lineups as a lower-end WR2.

Texans RB David Johnson has been activated from the COVID list. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Colts but only sits in RB3 territory in the Week 15 Rankings.

The Texans expect WR Brandin Cooks (neck) to return for Sunday's game against the Colts, according to The Houston Chronicle. Cooks was seemingly close to playing vs. the Bears this past week. He's back in the WR2 mix for Week 15. And his return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans S Justin Reid will miss the rest of the season after suffering a hand injury in Sunday's loss to the Bears. A.J. Moore looks like the fill-in for Reid but doesn't make for a good Week 15 bet in IDP lineups.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports that Texans RB David Johnson landed on the COVID list as a high-risk close contact. That means he'll be cleared for Week 15 if he avoids a positive test. We'll keep an eye on Johnson this coming week.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Bears. Keke Coutee (knee) is active and suddenly looks like QB Deshaun Watson’s #1 WR. WR Chad Hansen and TE Jordan Akins also project for targets boosts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Brandin Cooks is not expected to play today against the Bears, "barring significant late improvement." He's dealing with foot and neck issues. Cooks is officially questionable, and ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported that Houston expected the WR to play. So we'll need to confirm his status when the inactives come out at about 11:30 a.m. ET. For now, though, expect to not have Cooks available for your fantasy football lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Texans WRs Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) and Keke Coutee (knee) are expected to play vs. the Bears today. Neither guy seemed to be in any danger of missing this one. Both are fine to get into fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Randall Cobb (foot) admits there's a "strong chance" that he doesn't play again this season. He remains in a walking boot and is reportedly considering surgery. Look for Keke Coutee to operate as Houston's slot receiver the rest of the way.

Texans WRs Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) and Keke Coutee (knee) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bears. Cooks was limited in practice all week, while Coutee was limited on Wednesday and a full-go on Thursday and Friday. We’re fully expecting both guys to play, but check back on Sunday morning to make sure they’re active.

Texans RB David Johnson has been placed on the COVID list. He's out for Sunday's game against the Bears and is uncertain for Week 15 and beyond. His absence puts Duke Johnson back in the lead role this weekend. He averaged 11 carries and 3.3 targets in 3 games in that role earlier this year. Against Chicago's 4th-ranked RB defense, Duke is just a low-end fantasy option.

Texans RB David Johnson missed Friday's practice for a personal issue and might not travel with the team to Chicago for Sunday's game vs. the Bears, HC Rome Crennel said. We'll keep an eye on the situation and should find out whether Johnson traveled on Saturday afternoon. His absence would again leave lead duties to RB Duke Johnson, who's averaged 11 carries and 3.3 targets in 3 games in that role this year.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the knee shouldn’t be a major issue. Lindsay should remain in a committee alongside Melvin Gordon.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks left to get checked for a concussion in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Colts. It's a scary situation since Cooks has 5 documents concussions already. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Cooks was cleared to return.

11:12am EST 12/6/20

Jaguars WR Chris Conley (hip) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He figures to operate as the #4 WR behind D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee) is expected to play against the Chiefs tonight. Lindsay got in a full practice on Friday and should remain in a committee alongside RB Melvin Gordon.

The Ravens have activated RB Mark Ingram and DE Calais Campbell from the COVID list. That makes both players eligible for Tuesday night's game against the Cowboys. Ingram logged just 2 carries last time he played -- against Tennessee -- while J.K. Dobbins led the backfield with 15 rushes and claimed both RB targets. Campbell hasn't played since Week 9, when he left early with a calf injury. Dallas presents a high-upside matchup for him in IDP leagues.

Texans RB David Johnson (concussion) has been placed on the active roster and is set to return for Sunday's game against the Colts. Johnson averaged 14.4 carries and 3.4 targets in 7 healthy games this season and figures to get a similar workload tomorrow. The matchup vs. the #13 RB defense leaves Johnson as a low-end RB2 for Week 13.
