Seahawks' Jimmy Graham (ankle) is questionable for Week 12

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) is questionable to play in Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

What It Means:

Graham is officially questionable for Week 12 after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, although it's worth noting that missed practices aren't uncommon for him. We'll keep an eye on his status come Sunday.

Assuming he plays, numberFire projects Graham for 4.2 receptions, 44.8 yards, and 0.5 touchdowns on 6.7 targets. That would net him 9.3 FanDuel points.

Seahawks' Mike Davis (groin) listed as doubtful for Week 12

Seattle Seahawks running back Mike Davis is doubtful for the team's Week 12 matchup versus the San Francisco 49ers.

What It Means:

Davis hasn't practiced so it's very likely that he sits out this week. With him out, the Seahawks' running back duties will be split among Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and pass-catching back J.D. McKissic.

In his lone appearance this season, Davis took 6 rushes and 2 catches for 18 rushing yards and 41 receiving yards last week against the Atlanta Falcons.

Patriots' Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) doubtful for Week 12

Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

What It Means:

The veteran missed practice on Friday as he's dealt with a couple of injury issues throughout the week. He should be provided a rest this week, as Dwayne Allen and Rob Gronkowski (illness) play the majority of snaps at tight end.

If Bennett's somehow able to play, our models project him for just 1.2 catches and 2.0 FanDuel points at his $4,700 price tag this week.

Packers' Ty Montgomery (ribs) is doubtful for Week 12

Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) is doubtful to play in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

What It Means:

Montgomery is not expected to play against the Steelers after missing practice all week. Jamaal Williams will once again draw the start with both Montgomery and Aaron Jones sidelined.

Montgomery is averaging 10.0 FanDuel points across eight games in 2017.

Rob Gronkowski (illness) removed from Patriots' injury report

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was removed from the team's Week 12 injury report, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

What It Means:

Gronkowski's illness kept him out of practice, but he was never expected to miss this week's game. Meanwhile, Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is considered doubtful, which could leave more work for Gronk this week.

At $7,700, Gronkowski is expected to produce 4.2 catches, 67.2 yards and 1.0 touchdowns in this week's home matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Saints' Marshon Lattimore (ankle) ruled out against Rams

New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore has been ruled out for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

What It Means:

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, both Lattimore and Ken Crawley (abdomen) will miss this week's game, so the Saints will be without both starting corners. P.J. Williams and De'Vante Harris will be asked to step up versus Jared Goff and company.

Lattimore is Pro Football Focus' number-four ranked corner in the league. He's tallied 36 tackles, 9 passes defensed and and 1 pick-six over 9 games in 2017.

Chris Hogan (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 12

New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder) will not play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

What It Means:

Hogan missed practice all week, so he's been ruled out as expected. Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola should continue to see a boost in targets.

Prior to the injury, Hogan averaged 11.5 FanDuel points across eight games, with 33 receptions for 438 yards and 5 touchdowns on 54 targets.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson (chest) removed from Week 12 injury report

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver J.J. Nelson has been removed from the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

What It Means:

With John Brown (toe) ruled out, Nelson should see a decent workload this week. He could draw a tough matchup with Jalen Ramsey and the Jaguars pass defense, but Ramsey (hand) could be held out, leaving Nelson and others to take on the Jacksonville defense at less than full strength.

At just $4,600, our models project Nelson to tally 2.4 FanDuel points with 1.1 catches, 13.5 yards and 0.08 touchdowns on 2.6 targets in Week 12.

Falcons' Julio Jones (ankle, knee) removed from Week 12 injury report

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle, knee) was not listed on the final injury report for Week 12's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What It Means:

Jones has been dealing with ankle and knee issues, but apparently it's nothing serious and he will suit up against Tampa Bay.

In Week 12, numberFire projects Jones for 6.6 receptions, 84.5 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns on 9.9 targets. That would net him 15.5 FanDuel points.

Colts' Jacoby Brissett (concussion) removed from final injury report for Week 12

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett (concussion) wasn't listed on the final injury report for Week 12's contest against the Tennessee Titans.

What It Means:

This indicates that Brissett has cleared the concussion protocol and will play against the Titans in Week 12.

numberFire's models project Brissett to score 16.4 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,900 in Week 12, and he's the QB18 in our weekly fantasy rankings.

Colts' Kamar Aiken (hamstring) off injury report, will play in Week 12

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Kamar Aiken is not listed on the team's final injury report and will play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

What It Means:

Aiken has been dealing with a hamstring injury, but it looks like he's healthy enough to go into this week without an injury designation. He should factor into the Colts' receiver rotation while stealing targets from both Donte Moncrief and Chester Rogers.

Through 9 games and 7 starts, Aiken has just 14 catches for 131 yards and 0 scores this season. He's projected for 2.2 FanDuel points at his $4,500 price tag in Week 12.

Will Fuller (ribs) not expected to play for Texans in Week 12

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is not expected to play this week against the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Fuller missed last week and he'll continue to sit as he recovers from cracked ribs. He could return in Week 13, but for now Bruce Ellington will start alongside DeAndre Hopkins.

Fuller has averaged 14.0 FanDuel points in 6 games this season. He has totaled 7 touchdowns on just 17 receptions.

Matt Moore will start for the Dolphins in Week 12

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore will start in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Jay Cutler (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday, so Moore will get the start against the Patriots. With Moore behind center, Kenny Stills could see a boost in targets. In Week 11, Stills caught 7-of-8 targets for 180 yards and 1 touchdown, most of which came after Moore entered the game.

Moore completed 17-of-28 passes for 282 yards and 1 touchdown in relief of Cutler last week. He costs just $6,000 on FanDuel.

T.Y. Hilton projected for more productive outing in Colts' Week 12 rematch with Titans

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is the 12th-ranked option at his position in numberFire's Week 12 fantasy rankings.

What It Means:

Hilton was limited to 1 catch for 19 yards on 4 targets when these two teams met in Week 4. He's been extremely streaky this season, with five games at or below 30 receiving yards, as well as three games over the 150-yard mark. The Titans head into Week 12 ranked 27th in the NFL in terms of fantasy points allowed per game to opposing receivers, so odds are Hilton will make up for his Week 4 dud.

numberFire's models project Hilton to score 12.4 FanDuel points at a cost of $7,500 in Week 12, with 4.7 catches for 75.2 yards and 0.43 touchdowns on 8.5 targets versus the Titans.

Cardinals' John Brown (toe) ruled out for Week 12

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said that wide receiver John Brown will not play on Sunday, according to Arizona Sports' Mike Jurecki.

What It Means:

Brown is battling turf toe and hasn't been practicing as a result. The speedy but oft-injured wideout will step aside as Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson take over the majority of duties behind Larry Fitzgerald.

Brown is averaging 6.2 FanDuel points per game with 19 catches, 271 yards and 2 touchdowns through 8 games this season.

Jay Cutler (concussion) ruled out for Dolphins in Week 12

Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Cutler suffered the injury during last week's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was able to complete some "light throwing" on Thursday but it will be Matt Moore who gets the start for Miami in Sunday's divisional matchup. It's mostly a lateral move for the Dolphins, so owners shouldn't be concerned about a downgrade for Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, or any of the other offensive skill players.

Cutler is averaging 12.1 FanDuel points across nine games this season. He's totaled 13 touchdowns and 9 interceptions on the year while completing 64.6 percent of his passes for 178.0 yards a game.

Jaguars' Leonard Fournette (ankle) removed from injury report

Jacksonville Jaguars' running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) was taken off the Jaguars' final injury report for Week 12 against the Cardinals.

What It Means:

Fournette has been battling a nagging ankle injury but it didn't show last week against Cleveland as he put up 111 yards on 28 carries.

Our models project Fournette, who will cost $8,100, for 13.5 FanDuel points with 75.8 rushing yards, 18.9 receiving yards and 0.5 touchdowns.

Update: Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey (hand) officially questionable for Week 12

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

What It Means:

Ramsey, already one of the best cornerbacks in the game in his second season, said that he didn't expect to play after injuring his hand in Friday's practice. But the team's being a little more optimistic with a questionable tag heading into the weekend. If he can't go, though, Aaron Colvin would draw the start, slightly downgrading the Jaguars' defense and upgrading the Cardinals' passing offense.

Projected for 3.7 tackles, 1.1 passes defensed and 0.3 interceptions, our models have the Jaguars defense pegged for 14.4 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,500 in Week 12.

Titans' Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is questionable for Week 12

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is questionable for Week 12's contest against the Indianapolis Colts.

What It Means:

Matthews didn't practice on Friday, and as a late addition to the injury report, he's in danger of sitting out Week 12. Corey Davis and Eric Decker could see a boost in targets if Matthews is out.

If he manages to play, Matthews is projected for 5.9 targets, 3.6 catches, 57.8 yards, and 0.3 touchdowns in Week 12. That would amount to 9.3 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,300.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is questionable for Week 12 vs. Oakland

Denver Broncos' wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is questionable for Week 12 against the Raiders.

What It Means:

Sanders did not practice early in the week, but is fully expected to play after practicing the last two days. The veteran wide receiver is averaging 9.2 FanDuel points per game this season.

Our models project Sanders will post 9.4 FanDuel points on Sunday. His salary has been set at $6,300.

Colts' Jack Doyle projected to bounce back versus Titans in Week 12

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle is numberFire's 11th-ranked option at his position in our Week 12 fantasy rankings.

What It Means:

Doyle had his least productive game of the season heading into the Colts' bye, with just 2 catches on 5 targets for 9 scoreless yards in a Week 10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. From Weeks 6-9, he averaged 8.3 receptions on 10.3 targets for 69.5 yards while scoring twice, and we expect production similar to that against the Tennessee Titans this upcoming Sunday.

numberFire's models project Doyle to score 8.6 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,700 in Week 12, with 4.9 catches for 49.2 yards and 0.22 touchdowns on 6.8 targets.

John Lynch: Carlos Hyde has been 'excellent' for 49ers

San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde has "been excellent" this season, general manager John Lynch said.

What It Means:

"I think he learns football from [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan]. He's loving playing football, and we love that. And it's starting to show up on the field. He's been excellent." Hyde, who is playing in the final year of his rookie deal, has rushed 141 times for 592 yards and 4 touchdowns this season, while adding 42 catches (60 targets) for another 274 yards through the air. He'll look to keep it going for the 49ers in Week 12 as they host the Seattle Seahawks in a matchup of NFC West foes.

numberFire's models project Hyde to rush 14.3 times for 54.8 yards and 0.36 touchdowns in Week 12, while adding 3.4 catches for 27.3 yards and 0.12 scores, for a total of 12.7 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,600. He's the RB11 in our weekly fantasy rankings.

Jaguars' Allen Hurns (ankle) ruled out for Week 12

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns (ankle) will not play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12.

What It Means:

After sitting out practice all week, Hurns will miss his second straight game. Marqise Lee, Keelan Cole, and Dede Westbrook will once again serve as the top three wide receivers for Jacksonville.

Over nine games this season, Hurns has 36 receptions for 446 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski (illness) will play in Week 12

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (illness) confirmed he will play in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

What It Means:

Gronkowski missed practice on Wednesday, but said he's already feeling better, and is good to go for Sunday against Miami.

Gronkowski is numberFire's top-ranked tight end in Week 12, projecting him for 4.2 receptions, 67.2 yards, 1.0 touchdown on 6.5 targets. That would yield him 14.7 FanDuel points.

Bills' Charles Clay (knee) questionable for Week 12 vs. Chiefs

Buffalo Bills' tight end Charles Clay (knee) is questionable for Week 12 against the Chiefs.

What It Means:

Clay returned to action in Week 10 after a lengthy absence. He hasn't had much of an impact in his two games back from injury, accumulating 40 yards on five catches.

Currently, our models project for 6.0 FanDuel points while costing $5,300.
