We already know Joe Flacco and Sam Darnold have been ruled "out" and Marcus Mariota isn't even on the Titans' injury report for Monday night, but Tom Brady is listed as "questionable", so there's still at least one QB concern for fantasy owners. Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, and David Njoku are the primary TEs causing Week 12 start 'em, sit 'em headaches, and while most are expected to be listed as "active" when the official active/inactive reports come out, that won't stop nervous owners from frantically checking for injury updates throughout the day.
We'll update this article all day with the latest. For more on banged-up RBs Melvin Gordon, Sony Michel, and Alex Collins, go here; for additional news on injured WRs A.J. Green, Doug Baldwin and more, check here. We also have Week 12 weather updates here. You can also follow us on Twitter (@SN_Fantasy) for more advice and updates.
Is Jimmy Graham playing Sunday night?
UPDATE: Graham is officially ACTIVE.
Despite breaking a thumb last week, Graham returned to practice on Thursday with his hand heavily wrapped and is expected to play Sunday night against the Vikings. Graham reportedly "looked good" in practice, so that's a plus.
It's tough to expect much from Graham given the wrapped hand, but if he's out there, the Packers must think he can contribute. Thus, he could be a factor in the red zone, giving him value in fantasy as a boom-or-bust TE. Since most TEs are TD dependent, Graham is in play.
Is Tom Brady playing in Week 12?
UPDATE: Brady is officially ACTIVE.
Brady (knee, illness) didn't practice on Friday and is listed as "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Jets. Normally, missed Friday practices are a worry, but with a veteran QB like Brady, it doesn't necessarily mean much.
It would be a surprise if Brady didn't suit up, but you can never say for sure with the Patriots until the official active/inactive report is released. If Brady is active, he's a must-start. If he can't go, Brian Hoyer will be under center, thus hurting the value of all of New England's receivers. It would be tough to sit Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman or Rob Gronkowski, but none are "must-starts" even with Brady, so adjust accordingly based on your bench depth.
Rob Gronkowski injury update
UPDATE: Gronk is officially ACTIVE
A back injury has kept Gronk out of three of the past four games, but after New England's bye, he declared himself "good to go" . So, despite being listed as "questionable", he'll be there if fantasy owners need him.
Considering Gronk hasn't scored since Week 1, it's fair to question whether he's a "must-start", but given the rather sorry state of the TE position, it's unlikely most Gronk owners have better options. He still has plenty of upside in any matchup.WEEK 12 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings
David Njoku injury news
UPDATE: Njoku is officially ACTIVE
Njoku (knee) got in limited practices all week and is "questionable" for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
Despite disappointing recently, Njoku is a TE1 against a Bengals defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends.
