Date Player
11/19/2017 Paxton Lynch, Den, QB
Lynch is active for the first time this season as the Broncos face the Bengals. He'll back up starter Brock Osweiler.

Analysis: General manager John Elway moved up in the 2016 draft to select Lynch, who was beaten out by Siemian two summers in a row. Siemian lost his starting job to Osweiler after committing too many turnovers.
11/19/2017 John Ross, Cin, WR
Ross is a healthy scratch for the Bengals' game at Denver.

Analysis: The first-round pick is verging toward bust territory. He's been injured at times, but he still doesn't have an NFL catch in three games.
11/19/2017 Clay Matthews, GB, LB
Matthews has been ruled out for the rest of their game against Baltimore after hurting his groin midway through the first quarter at Lambeau Field.

Analysis: Matthews came back for one play on the ensuing series but watched the rest of the first half. It wasn't a pretty one for either offense. The Ravens led 6-0 at the break on Justin Tucker's two field goals. The Packers have three turnovers, including two picks thrown by Brett Hundley.
11/19/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Cutler is being evaluated for a possible concussion after taking an elbow to the head while going to the ground in the Dolphins' game against the Bucs.

Analysis: Cutler threw three first-half interceptions and has looked generally incompetent all day.
11/19/2017 Everson Griffen, Min, DE
Griffen will return Sunday against the Rams after a one-game absence due to a back injury.

Analysis: This is a huge addition as the Vikings try to slow down the Rams' explosive offense.
11/19/2017 Dee Ford, KC, LB
Ford won't play again Sunday due to a back injury.

Analysis: That hurts Kansas City's overall defensive value a bit, but they still shouldn't have much trouble getting to Eli Manning and forcing turnovers.
11/19/2017 Eli Apple, NYG, CB
Apple is a healthy scratch against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Apple's mother underwent brain surgery this week, so this is almost certainly related to that.
11/19/2017 Niles Paul, Was, TE
Paul will play in Week 11 against the Saints after being cleared from concussion protocol.

Analysis: With Terrelle Pryor and Jordan Reed out, Paul could definitely see more targets.
11/19/2017 Albert Wilson, KC, WR
Wilson won't play against the Giants because of a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Wilson hasn't played since Week 8 and hasn't done much this season, but he has shown an ability to stretch the field for Alex Smith.
11/19/2017 Jordan Reed, Was, TE
Reed is inactive against the Saints due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: This is the third straight game he'll miss after getting hurt against Dallas in Week 8, and takes another red zone target away from Kirk Cousins.
11/19/2017 Terrelle Pryor Sr., Was, WR
Pryor is inactive against the Saints due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Perhaps the most disappointing player in football only has two catches in the last three games and just 20 on the season.
11/19/2017 Kenny Vaccaro, NO, S
Vaccaro is inactive against the Redskins due to a groin injury.

Analysis: This could be a big blow to a defense that hasn't allowed more than 17 points in the last four games.
11/19/2017 Kenny Stills, Mia, WR
Stills is active against the Bucs despite injuring his back on Thursday.

Analysis: Stills hasn't scored a touchdown in the last three weeks but is still a threat to find the end zone with Jay Cutler throwing him the ball.
11/19/2017 Sterling Shepard, NYG, WR
Shepard is dealing with a migraine and is inactive against the Chiefs.

Analysis: There goes one of Eli Manning's only reliable targets, though Manning shouldn't be in your one-QB lineup anyway.
11/19/2017 Will Fuller V, Hou, WR
Fuller is inactive for the Texans game against the Cardinals with a rib injury.

Analysis: Seven of Fuller's 17 catches have been touchdowns, so this is a potentially huge big play and red zone threat sidelined.
11/19/2017 Andre Ellington, Ari, RB
Ellington is a healthy inactive for Week 11.

Analysis: Ellington has 33 receptions but hasn't been any sort of a threat running the ball.
11/19/2017 Drew Stanton, Ari, QB
Stanton is active in Week 11, but he's expected to back up Blaine Gabbert.

Analysis: It's always possible Gabbert will be bad enough that Stanton gets in, but neither should be a fantasy option.
11/19/2017 Terrance West, Bal, RB
West is inactive again for the Ravens in Week 11 against the Packers.

Analysis: West went down early in Week 5 and hasn't played since because of a calf injury.
11/19/2017 Breshad Perriman, Bal, WR
Perriman is inactive Sunday against the Packers.

Analysis: Perriman is reportedly being demoted after catching just seven passes for 54 yards and no touchdowns in eight games.
11/19/2017 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette is active against the Browns on Sunday after being listed as questionable due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Fournette was held out of practice Friday to give him extra rest and treatment after being limited Wednesday and Thursday.
