Raiders HC Jon Gruden said Monday that he's "not confident" RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) will be able to return for Sunday's game against the Colts. So it's looking like his ankle injury is more serious than initially reported. RB Devontae Booker's fantasy production was disappointing as Vegas' lead back vs. the Jets, but he did handle 16 of 23 RB carries and 2 of 4 RB targets. The tough matchup vs. Indianapolis will leave him as a low-end RB2 for Week 14, though.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward (groin) is active for today's game against the Patriots. He's not a strong option for IDP lineups, though.

The Raiders have ruled S Johnathan Abram (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Jets. That likely puts Erik Harris into the starting lineup next to Jeff Heath.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. His injury reportedly isn't serious, so he would seem to have a good shot to return for Week 14. His absence this week leaves RB Devontae Booker as Vegas' lead back. He's been good this season, averaging 5.5 yards per carry and ranking 21st in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating among 65 RBs with 50+ carries. Booker might lose some passing-down work to RBs Jalen Richard and/or Theo Riddick, but he's a good bet for 15+ carries in a good spot vs. the Jets.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. His injury reportedly isn't serious, but he's starting to look very iffy for this weekend's game against the Jets. His absence would leave Devontae Booker as Vegas' lead back in a good spot. Check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. His injury reportedly isn't serious, but he's not a lock to play against the Jets this weekend. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field on Thursday. Jacobs' absence would turn RB Devontae Booker into a plug-and-play fantasy starter.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) "has a chance" to play against the Jets this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tests confirmed that Jacobs has a relatively minor ankle sprain, and it sounds like how he feels in practice throughout the week will determine whether he plays on Sunday. We'll keep a close eye on his status. RB Devontae Booker remains worth stashing in almost all fantasy leagues.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' ankle injury "looked worse than it is," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jacobs is scheduled for additional testing on Monday to get a better look at the sprain. We'll see if he's able to play against the Jets this weekend, but backup RB Devontae Booker is definitely worth a scoop-and-stash.

The Ravens have placed WR Willie Snead on the COVID list. He'll miss Tuesday night's game vs. the Steelers, which is surprisingly still scheduled to be played as of now.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs appeared to injure an ankle on a 3rd-quarter carry in Sunday’s game against the Falcons and did not return. It’s possible the fact that Vegas was getting blown out played a part in Jacobs being held out, but we’ll look for an update on his status tomorrow. Devontae Booker will step in as the Raiders' lead back if Jacobs misses more time.

Bills WR John Brown (ankle) has been placed on IR. He'd already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers but will now also miss at least Week 13 vs. the 49ers and Week 14 vs. the Steelers. WRs Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis all project for target boosts with Brown out.

Bills WR John Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He'll be replaced by rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who becomes an intriguing DFS flier. But the real winner is WR Cole Beasley, who's posted 6-100, 6-53 and 11-112 lines on 25 total targets in the 3 games Brown has missed all or most of this season.

Bills WR John Brown (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. He added that they'll "take it one day at a time and see what the rest of the week holds" for Brown. It's a bad sign that he's unable to practice at all coming off the bye week. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Brown in Week 12 lineups. His absence would boost WR Cole Beasley's target projection.

Bills WR John Brown was knocked out by a right ankle injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals. We'll look for an update on the severity tomorrow and monitor his status this coming week.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bills. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggested this morning that Drake might be limited in his 1st action since Week 7, leaving him as a risky RB3 or flex play. Downgrade RB Chase Edmonds with Drake back — but we still like Edmonds as a RB2 today.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) is "planning to play" against the Bills today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’ll be watched closely in warmups to determine how significant a role he has," Rapoport adds. It sounds like there's a decent chance that Drake will play a limited role in his 1st game back. That leaves him as a risky Week 10 fantasy start. RB Chase Edmonds is the better bet today.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is a game-time decision for Sunday’s tilt vs. the Bills, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Friday. That’s a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, so hopefully we get an update on Drake on Sunday morning. His return would make this a committee backfield alongside Chase Edmonds. Drake’s absence would make RB Chase Edmonds a workhorse RB1.

The Raiders on Thursday placed LB Cory Littleton on the COVID list. It's not clear whether Littleton got there by testing positive or being in close contact with someone who did. The timing figures to challenge his ability to make it back for Sunday's game against the Broncos. You should have another plan for your IDP lineup, especially given Littleton's poor production this season.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to play against the Bills this weekend. We'll see what he's able to do the next 2 days and how Arizona lists him on the final injury report.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) could be seen on the field for at least the early portion of Wednesday's practice. We'll see what the team's injury report says about his participation and watch that aspect through the week. Arizona gets a favorable rushing matchup with the Bills this Sunday.
