Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (forearm) is inactive for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He returned to a limited practice on Friday and seemingly has a good chance to return for next weekend’s rematch with the Cowboys.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett hurt his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals and is questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Mitchell Trubisky will replace Pickett.

Update: Pickett has been ruled out. He's on the sidelines with his right foot in a walking boot.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (forearm) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, with Philadelphia aiming to have him back for next week’s rematch with the Cowboys. Grab Goedert now if he was dropped in your fantasy league.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (forearm) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He's reportedly been pushing to play vs. the 49ers this weekend, but a Week 13 return vs. the Cowboys is much more likely.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that Eagles TE Dallas Goedert "will push to play" against the 49ers next Sunday. That would put him four weeks beyond the forearm fracture he suffered in the Week 9 win over Dallas. Palmer adds: "We'll see if that's possible as the week goes. It does seem very realistic for him to be on the field in two weeks" for the rematch with the Cowboys. The takeaway: You might get Goedert back for Week 13, but make sure you have another TE option available. He'll likely be on track for your Week 14 lineup. Obviously we'll keep watching Goedert's situation right up to each game's inactives.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith tallied 7 receptions for 106 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over the Bills. The yardage marked his highest output since Week 2 but also the third time in the past four games that the delivered 99+ yards. Smith's 8 targets trailed WR A.J. Brown by one. But the pair combined to draw a target on 54.8% of QB Jalen Hurts' pass attempts. It was the second straight game that TE Dallas Goedert missed, which likely helped Smith's target count. Goedert is expected to remain out for the Week 13 clash with the 49ers but has a chance to return for a Week 14 visit to Dallas.

Eagles lead WR A.J. Brown caught five passes Sunday for just 37 yards. But he snagged one of three TD passes from QB Jalen Hurts in an inconsistent passing performance against the Bills. And his 9 targets edged WR DeVonta Smith for the team lead, in a game that saw the two wideouts draw a target on 54.8% of Hurts' pass attempts. It wasn't the kind of performance you expect from Brown, but the output shouldn't concern you going forward -- especially considering the rainy conditions. Philly's remaining schedule holds a negative Week 14 spot against the Cowboys, but the other four games all feature positive ratings by our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) and CB Carlton Davis (hip) are active for today's game against the Colts. Each should be OK for normal-level IDP usage. LB Lavonte David's absence (groin injury) increases White's tackle upside.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. It’ll be his first action since Week 8. Parker has scored double-digit PPR points just once all year and isn’t a viable fantasy play. His return does add a bit more target competition for WR Demario Douglas.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Giants. He remained limited in practice all week, so he still has some work to do to clear the concussion protocol. Parker isn’t on the fantasy radar, but his return would add a bit more target competition for WR Demario Douglas.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (forearm) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bills. Philadelphia is hoping to get him back for the Week 14 showdown vs. the Cowboys. TE Grant Calcaterra is also out for Week 12, leaving the Eagles with TEs Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam. Neither is a reliable fantasy play.

The Colts have waived LB Shaquille Leonard. The veteran LB's playing time has been down vs. previous seasons, but he played at least 69% of the snaps in seven of his nine appearances -- including Indy's last game. Leonard played poorly in that contest, though. And for the season, Pro Football Focus has him at the highest missed-tackle rate of his career. Leonard still figures to catch on elsewhere -- likely after he clears waivers so that the new team doesn't have to pay the rest of his sizable contract. We'll see whether the 28-year-old can land somewhere with a path to full playing time. His departure should elevate E.J. Speed to No. 2 LB behind MLB Zaire Franklin.

Eagles WR A.J. Brown hit a bump in Week 11, hauling in just 1 of 4 targets for 8 receiving yards vs. the Chiefs. For as disappointing as this performance is, crummy weather impacted pass-catchers on both teams. Yes, Eagles wideout DeVonta Smith (6 catches for 99 yards) had a fine outing, but he was the only player to amass greater than 60 receiving yards in this contest. So don’t let this showing stop you from going right back to Brown as a top-flight WR1 in Week 12 vs. the Bills. Remember: the superstar had posted no fewer than 18.7 PPR points in a game since Week 2 prior to Monday night.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 14 of 22 passes for 150 yards with 1 INT in Week 11’s win vs. the Chiefs. Things for scary for fantasy managers on Monday night as Hurts had only completed 5 attempts for 46 yards with just 3 rushing yards to his name through the first two quarters of action. Fortunately, things turned around, and he scored 2 rushing TDs in the second half to salvage his day. Let this be a reminder that Hurts should still be thought of as a high-end QB1 on a weekly basis as long as he’s able to maintain value as a runner. Next week, the Eagles will square off at home vs. the Bills.

The Giants' offense has struggled lately but managed to support a big game for RB Saquon Barkley in Sunday's win over the Commanders. Barkley rushed 14 times for 83 yards (5.9) per rush and added a 4-57-2 receiving line on 5 targets. That tied him for the team high in targets and marked Barkley's most receptions in a game since Week 6. The yardage was a season high. Playing a lackluster Washington defense certainly helped. The Giants get a neutral matchup with New England in Week 12 before a Week 13 bye. After that comes a positive matchup for RB scoring with Green Bay, but three straight negative matchups to finish the season. That makes Barkley a potential sell if your trade deadline hasn't passed yet. Barkley's receiving ability helps him in negative matchups, though, so he can certainly remain useful in fantasy. Barkley has also topped 5.0 yards per carry in three straight contests.

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) is active for today's game against the 49ers. He's OK to use as planned in IDP lineups.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni says he has "high hopes" that TE Dallas Goedert won't miss more than three games with his forearm fracture, according to Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice. "There's a reason he's not on IR yet." That would obviously be good news for Goedert's fantasy outlook, and it means you should try to avoid dropping the Eagles TE if your roster can take the dead spot for three weeks. That return timeline would bring Goedert back for Week 14 (at Dallas) and then high-ceiling matchups with the Seahawks, Giants, and Cardinals.

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He progressed from no practice Wednesday to a limited Thursday and then full Friday participation. That suggests White will be ready for Sunday's game. He has been a low-level IDP option this season, though.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (forearm) did not practice on Thursday. He's expected to miss about four weeks with his fractured forearm, so don't expect to see him out there for Monday night's showdown vs. the Chiefs. Goedert's absence leaves Philly with TEs Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra, and Albert Okwuegbunam. We'll see how those guys are deployed on Monday, but none can be trusted in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley recorded 13 carries for 66 rushing yards with 1 catch for -5 yards in Week 10 vs. the Cowboys. Fantasy managers expected tough sledding against a fierce Cowboys defense, and there’s no sugarcoating a 7.1 PPR point performance. The moribund offense will hurt Barkley the rest of the way, and the Giants’ remaining schedule ranks as the toughest for RBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. You might get flex-level value from Barkley on volume, but keep your expectations low.
