Fantasy Football Inactives: Week 11

The NFL inactive list actually looks a lot smaller than it normally does week to week. This is the list of players who have been ruled out going into Sunday’s games:

DT Cory Redding (ankle, out); WR Eddie Royal (knee, out); LB DeMarcus Ware(back, out); QB Peyton Manning (foot, out); QB Brian Hoyer (concussion, out); QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, out); WR Phillip Dorsett (ankle, out); QB Sam Bradford (concussion, out); RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, out); WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, out); LB Bruce Irvin (knee, out); WR Paul Richardson(hamstring, out); RB Carlos Hyde (foot, out)

Here are the players whose status are in doubt before another important week of football.

RB Marshawn Lynch (Abdomen, questionable):

Marshawn Lynch managed to have a decent impact on last week’s game against the Cardinals despite only getting eight carries. Head coach Pete Carroll says that Lynch is one the more positive side of questionable. Lynch has always been a tough guy and with his status somewhat improved, he should be a great option against the 49ers this week.

RB Matt Forte (Knee, questionable):

Ian Rapoport sent out this tweet earlier this morning.

The Bears will be more than willing to let Matt Forte get back to full strength. Jeremy Langford has been great in relief of Forte and if he plays well against the Broncos this week, he may cut into more of Forte’s playing time when he’s healthy.

RB Darren McFadden (Groin, questionable):

Ian Rapoport reported on the status of McFadden earlier this morning.

After Dallas decided to let go of Joseph Randle, they don’t have much depth at running back. The Cowboys don’t have many other options which probably why McFadden is suiting up against the Dolphins.

WR Emmanuel Sanders (Ankle, questionable):

Emmanuel Sanders has been battling injuries over the last couple of weeks. Those injuries along with Peyton Manning’s poor play have hurt his fantasy value tremendously. Sanders is expected to play against a soft Bears secondary but it all depends on how well Brock Osweiler plays.

WR Alshon Jeffery (Groin, inactive):

Alshon Jeffery was ineffective last week against the Rams, and part of that might have been because his groin injury acted up. Now Jeffery won’t end up playing for the Bears this week against the Broncos as a result. That means Marquess Wilson will look to get open against a tough Broncos secondary, and Jeremy Langford should get plenty of touches as well.

WR Michael Floyd (Hamstring, inactive):

Michael Floyd wasn’t a participant in practice all week and the Cardinals are not optimistic about him playing tonight. Floyd will be limited at best, and after seeing how the Cardinals have handled John Brown’s injuries in the past, it’ll be best to keep Floyd on the bench.

WR John Brown (Hamstring, questionable):

Unlike Michael Floyd’s status, John Brown should be good to go for the Cardinals against the Bengals. Brown should expect to get plenty of targets if Michael Floyd won’t be able to play tonight.

WR Anquan Boldin (Hamstring, questionable):

Boldin is going to be a game-time decision for the 49ers as they have a very tough matchup against the Seahawks this week. Boldin only had 39 receiving yards in their last matchup, so the likelihood of him playing well against them is a long shot.

WR Vincent Jackson (Knee, questionable):

Vincent Jackson is going to make his return for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after missing the last three games. Jackson has always been hit or miss and it’s going to take a lot for him to take targets away from Mike Evans who has been on fire lately.

TE Ladarius Green (Ankle, inactive):

Ladarius Green isn’t going to play for the Chargers in a key divisional matchup against the Chiefs. That means that Antonio Gates, Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman will have to carry the load as pass catchers.
