The #Jets have downgraded RB Le’Veon Bell from questionable to out. He’s been dealing with an illness. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: With Bell out, expect the Jets to use Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery at running back. Powell is probably the better fantasy play but the Jets are 29th in fantasy points scored by running backs suggesting Powell is not a slam dunk play even against the Dolphins.
Foot injury for Engram
Daniel Jones (ankle) officially ruled out Monday night vs. Eagles. Eli Manning starts.
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), CB Corey Ballentine (concussion) also OUT.
This means Giants will still not have played a game w/all top weapons on the field together (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Engram was trending towards playing after getting in some limited practices this week, but will sit out his fourth straight game. Kaden Smith will get the start and be a middling TE2 option.
Unlikely to play in Week 14
Adam Thielen is DOUBTFUL and Riley Reiff is QUESTIONABLE to play for #Vikings, team announces. (Andrew Krammer on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Thielin will likely be inactive on Sunday leaving Stefon Diggs the main option at wide receiver for Kirk Cousins. Diggs has disappointed in this role last week (4-25) but gets a decent matchup against the Lions who have given up the 10th most fantasy points to WRs.
Didn’t do much at practice Friday
Gruden said Josh Jacobs didn’t do much in practice today, his only workout of the week. We’ll see more Washington, Richard and even some more Ingold if Jacobs can’t go. (Scott Blair on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Jacobs has been playing with a shoulder injury for a few weeks now, but after two crushing defeats it may be time for the Raiders to take a more long-term view for their rookie running back. If Jacobs hits the Inactive list on Sunday, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would handle the running back duties against the Titans.
