Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is expected to practice Tuesday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins had a plan to get Tannehill back after their Week 11 bye. That seems to be the ways things could shake out provided Tannehill shows he's ready to return during the week of practice.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will reportedly be named the starting quarterback for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) has 'a chance' to play in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach John Harbaugh.'It's not a surgical thing. It's a calming down type of thing with the hip,' Harbaugh said.

Footballguys view: The Ravens went run-heavy on offense with QB Lamar Jackson starting in Week 11. Even Jackson had 27 carries in a win over the Bengals on Sunday. We'll know more about Flacco's status during the week of practice.

  Redskins | Alex Smith has surgery    Mon Nov 19, 10:50 AM

Footballguys view: Smith faces a long road to recovery and his status for the beginning of the 2019 season is unknown at this time. Washington turns to Colt McCoy as their starter with Smith out. They'll have to make a move to add a quarterback as Smith and McCoy are the only QBs on the roster.

  Bills | Josh Allen returning    Mon Nov 19, 10:38 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) will practice fully this week and should start in Week 12, barring a setback.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bills here. Matt Barkley led the Bills to a win against the Jets in Week 10 but he'll go back to the bench if Allen is ready to play.

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) aggravated the issue with the ulnar nerve in his elbow, and he's undergoing tests Monday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: We'll watch his status during the week of practice for the Titans. Mariota was ready in an emergency role in the second half of Sunday's loss against the Colts. This is the same injury that forced Mariota from the lineup for a couple of games earlier this year.

Free-agent QBs EJ Manuel (Raiders), Kellen Clemens (Chargers), Mark Sanchez (Bears), Josh Johnson (Raiders) and T.J. Yates (Texans) will work out for the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Washington has to add a quarterback to the roster with Alex Smith done for the year. Colt McCoy is the only passer they have on the active roster and they don't even have another quarterback on the practice squad.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston replaced QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Week 11 game against the New York Giants and completed 12 of his 16 passes for 199 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 38-35 loss.

Footballguys view: "Tampa Quarterback" had another strong game, and it should be Winston's job going into a matchup against the 49ers. With OJ Howard banged up, Cameron Brate is better situated to rekindle the chemistry between the two of them.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger totals three TDs    Sun Nov 18, 08:07 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 27-of-47 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions with a game-winning one-yard touchdown run in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger was dreadful for three quarters, but did enough to win a hard-fought road game against a team that ended their 2017. He proved that he's matchup and venue proof heading in to face another strong defense on the road in Denver.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 16-of-24 passes for 208 yards, one touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Watson struggled against a Washington defense that harassed him all day. His cause was helped by the return of Keke Coutee and he'll have an easier matchup at home against the Titans next week.

  Colts | Andrew Luck tosses three TDs again    Sun Nov 18, 06:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 23-of-29 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Luck has been a maestro lately and is solidly in the strong QB1 tier. The only thing that held him back in this one was the Titans allowing the Colts to put Jacoby Brissett in early. Luck should be in lineups against the Dolphins next week.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson has solid debut    Sun Nov 18, 06:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went 13-for-19 for 150 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. He also rushed for 117 yards on 27 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Jackson wasn't asked to do much as a passer, so he had a middling fantasy day despite running for over 100 yards. He would be worth a streamer/superflex/QB2 look next week against Oakland if Joe Flacco isn't ready to return.

  Titans | Blaine Gabbert thrust into action    Sun Nov 18, 05:56 PM

  Bengals | Andy Dalton throws two TDs    Sun Nov 18, 05:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 19-for-36 for 211 yards and two touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. He also rushed for 29 yards on two carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Dalton made the most of a tough matchup on the road without his #1 receiver. He's not streamable against the Browns next week unless AJ Green can play, but it does seem like Green is ahead of the pessimistic projections that put him out until December.

  Redskins | Alex Smith to undergo surgery    Sun Nov 18, 05:30 PM

  Lions | Matthew Stafford so-so in home win    Sun Nov 18, 05:14 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 23-of-37 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 11 win against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Stafford's ceiling is too low to consider in fantasy lineups with Golden Tate gone and Marvin Jones out. We'll see if Jones can return for Thanksgiving. Either way, you won't want to play Stafford with the Bears coming to town.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 291 yards    Sun Nov 18, 04:56 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 24-for-34 for 291 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Ryan had some issues against the Cowboys pressure and the offense settled for too many field goals in this one. The Falcons are not an elite offense and Ryan is not an elite fantasy quarterback. He'll face a hostile Thanksgiving crowd and defense in New Orleans.

  Panthers | Cam Newton tosses three touchdowns    Sun Nov 18, 04:45 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 25-of-37 passes for 357 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Newton got banged up and was stopped by a middling Lions defense for a large part of this game, but he still came through for fantasy players, thanks to young speed at wide receiver. The Panthers are getting closer to the playoff bubble after two straight losses and have a hungry Seahawks team coming to town next week.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott has solid performance    Sun Nov 18, 03:52 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott went 22-for-32 for 208 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11. He also rushed for five yards and one touchdown on four carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Prescott's rushing score rescued an underwhelming passing day against one of the league's worst pass defense. Prescott is back to looking like a low-end streamer heading into a tough Turkey Day matchup with Washington.

  Redskins | Alex Smith injures ankle    Sun Nov 18, 03:02 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and will not return.

Footballguys view: Smith leg injury is a fracture and serious. His season is over. Colt McCoy will start and he's a very competent backup. This pass offense was one of the weakest in the NFL with Smith, so the fantasy outlook here isn't changing. This team will rely on their defense and timely plays from Adrian Peterson behind a banged up offensive line.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick benched in third quarter    Sun Nov 18, 02:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the third quarter of the Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, after throwing his third interception of the contest. He was replaced by Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: Fitzmagic VII the sequel is over. The Bucs have had to bench two different quarterbacks this year. Maybe we'll see Ryan Griffin before the end of the season. Winston will be a hot waiver wire pickup this week, but his leash is also short.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (hand) suffered an apparent hand injury late in the second quarter of Week 11 and was replaced by backup QB Blaine Gabbert.

Footballguys view: Mariota's injury could related to his early season arm injury that limited his play for a good part of the season. This is terrible news for the Titans offense with Blaine Gabbert in at quarterback now.
