11/28/2014 Taylor Lewan, T
The Tennessee Titans could enter Sunday's game at Houston without either of their starting offensive tackles. Neither Lewan nor Michael Oher has practiced all week. They're listed as questionable on the Titans' injury report, and Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt says both will be game-time decisions.

Analysis: Lewan sprained an ankle Sunday against Philadelphia.
11/28/2014 Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB
The Seattle Seahawks have placed rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis on injured reserve.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll had hinted earlier in the week that a roster move could be on the horizon for Pierre-Louis, who had been dealing with a shoulder injury. Pierre-Louis had appeared in five games this season and had started to get more playing time in passing situations.
11/28/2014 Lance Briggs, LB
The Bears placed Briggs on the reserve/injured list Friday because of a groin injury.

Analysis: Briggs has 63 tackles, including 2 1/2 tackles, and an interception, a forced fumble, two pass breakups and a quarterback pressure this season. The seven-time Pro Bowl player is in his 12th season in the NFL, all with the Bears.
11/28/2014 Khiry Robinson, RB
The Saints have ruled out Robinson for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.

Analysis: He'll miss his sixth straight game with a forearm injury.
11/28/2014 Roddy White, WR
White (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

Analysis: White missed practice all three days this week.
11/28/2014 Mike Brown, WR
The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived receiver Mike Brown and promoted receiver Tommy Streeter from the practice squad.

Analysis: Brown had seven receptions for 88 yards in the first five games this season. He was inactive the last six.
11/28/2014 Brandon Marshall, LB
Marshall says he expects to play Sunday night at Kansas City after clearing concussion protocol and practicing in full Friday.

Analysis: Marshall was knocked out of last week's win over the Dolphins when he ran into 6-foot-4, 265-pound tight end Dion Simms on T.J. Ward's interception return.
11/28/2014 Jerick McKinnon, RB
McKinnon will not play against Carolina on Sunday because of an injury to his lower back.

Analysis: McKinnon didn't practice all week. He was listed as doubtful. The rookie said Friday his condition is nothing he "can't play through," but he confirmed he will be held out against the Panthers. That will mean more time in the backfield for Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and perhaps Ben Tate.
11/28/2014 Ray Rice, RB
Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension by the NFL, which has been "vacated immediately," the players' union said Friday.

Analysis: The appeal was heard earlier this month by former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones. She was deciding whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice's two-game suspension, making it indefinite after video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching his fiancee- now his wife - became public. Rice was released by the Ravens and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the suspension indefinite shortly after the video was made public.
11/28/2014 Johnny Manziel, QB
Manziel says he tried to avoid an altercation with a man who was "very aggressive" when he approached the Browns' rookie quarterback in the lobby of his apartment building last week.

Analysis: Speaking on Friday for the first time since the incident, Manziel said the fan, identified in a police report as Chris Gonos, was "very intoxicated" when he confronted the QB inside The 9, a downtown hotel where the popular former Heisman Trophy winner lives. Police responded to the skirmish, which took place at 2:30 a.m. Manziel didn't have any marks on his face and would not say if he threw any punches. Manziel added he does not have an entourage.
11/28/2014 Marshawn Lynch, RB
Lynch ran 20 times for 104 yards in Thursday's win in San Francisco.

Analysis: It was his third 100-yard effort in four games, but he's gone three games without a touchdown after scoring six in his previous two.
11/28/2014 Russell Wilson, QB
Wilson was 15 of 22 for 236 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win in San Francisco.

Analysis: He didn't have the big rushing numbers fantasy owners have come to appreciate, but his passing yardage was at its highest in six games while he went a third straight contest without throwing in interception.
11/28/2014 LeSean McCoy, RB
McCoy ran for 159 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win in Dallas.

Analysis: It took a while, but McCoy is finally breaking out. He's had a TD in consecutive games and has rushed for 289 yards.
11/28/2014 Tony Romo, QB
Romo went 18 of 29 for 199 yards and two interceptions in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

Analysis: Bad Romo finally showed up, and it was just in time to make fantasy owners nervous as they plan for the playoffs. He'd thrown 21 TDs and just three INTs in his previous nine games with a rating of 118.7.
11/28/2014 Mark Sanchez, QB
Sanchez completed 20 of 29 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win in Dallas.

Analysis: He also ran for a score, but the Eagles elected to run a bit more this week. He had attempted at least 37 passes in his previous three starts and reached 300 yards in each of them. Those daring to start Sanchez in fantasy will certainly want to consider this going forward.
11/28/2014 Joique Bell, RB
Bell ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's win over Chicago.

Analysis: With Reggie Bush out, Bell had all of the Lions' 23 rushing attempts. He's still only gaining 3.5 yards per carry and hasn't cracked 100 yards this season, so it's almost necessary for him to reach the end zone to achieve a strong fantasy game. This was the first game in five in which he's done so.
11/28/2014 Alshon Jeffery, WR
Jeffery caught nine passes for 71 yards and two scores in Thursday's loss in Detroit.

Analysis: He's caught a TD in three straight games with five in his last five games.
11/28/2014 Calvin Johnson, WR
Johnson caught 11 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's win over Chicago.

Analysis: His catches and targets (16) were season highs, while the yardage was his best since Week 1. It's certainly a confidence-boosting performance for fantasy owners who have suffered through some of Johnson's lean weeks.
11/28/2014 Jay Cutler, QB
Cutler was 31 of 48 for 280 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's loss to Detroit.

Analysis: Things were looking up with two first-quarter TD passes, but things certainly regressed. He's now thrown at least 14 INTs in all four seasons with Chicago in which he's played at least 12 games, so one should be surprised at this point.
11/28/2014 Matthew Stafford, QB
Stafford was 34 of 45 for 390 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's win over Chicago.

Analysis: It was a season high in yardage for Stafford and his first game in six without an interception, but he probably needs to show some sustained success to regain the trust of fantasy owners. He hadn't thrown a TD pass in the previous two weeks and his rating over seven games was 75.2.
