Questionable:

Always a great sign when we skip over the players that are good to go and dive right into the players who’s status is up in the air. But hey, 2020.

Anthony Walker, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Practice Week: FP, FP, FP
Injury Designation: Questionable

Spoiler alert, Bobby Okereke is out. This brings Anthony Walker into flex conversations if he can play. Walker has always been somewhat reliable when he gets the playing time, and with Okereke out he should see that, no problem.

However, it all boils down to whether or not he’ll play. Seeing that he managed full practices all week definitely helps his chances to play, but the fact they listed him as questionable means there’s always a chance.

Dante Fowler, DL, Atlanta Falcons

Practice Week: LP, LP, LP
Injury Designation: Questionable

It’s likely we see Fowler return this week. However, I’d call it less likely he makes an impact. He draws a tough matchup against a Las Vegas front that doesn’t give up much opportunities for sacks to the DL position. I’m not starting him, or even rostering him at this point.

Alex Singleton, LB, Philadelphia Eagles

Practice Week: LP, LP, LP
Injury Designation: Questionable

It looks as though the Eagles have just been taking precaution with Singleton. If he’s able to play Monday Night vs the Seattle Seahawks he gets a tough matchup, but with how he’s playing he definitely deserves flex consideration.

With him playing Monday, it’s likely you won’t know if he’s playing by the time your other options would need to be played. I like his chances, but sitting him to be safe does need to be considered.

Dre Greenlaw, LB, San Francisco 49ers

Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: Questionable

Greenlaw missed time this week with a non-COVID related illness. If he does play he gets a great matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, whose high run-to-pass ratio and high plays per game offer great opportunity to the LB position.

Kyle Dugger, DB, New England Patriots

Practice Week: FP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: Questionable

Dugger seems to have picked up a toe injury in practice this week. This is highly unfortunate because he draws an extremely favorable matchup vs the Arizona Cardinals.

I’d guess his dramatic decrease in practice participation will lead to him missing this week. I could be wrong, but I’m looking for other options this week.

Out:

Myles Garrett, DL, Cleveland Browns

Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: COVID-IR

Myles Garrett will miss another week on the COVID-IR list. Hopefully he can return in Week 13.

Calais Campbell, DL, Baltimore Ravens


Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: COVID-IR

What’s going on with the Baltimore Ravens dude? Calais Campbell lands on a list no one wants to be on with the COVID-IR. He had a shot to make a return against the Pittsburgh Steelers, however it’s now likely he won’t be back until Week 14 at the earliest.

I’ve mentioned him on my IDP Drop List before and his unavailability now just strengthens that stance for me.

Micah Kiser, LB, Los Angeles Rams

Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: IR

It’s a shame to see Micah Kiser being shifted to IR, especially with how he’s performed this season. He stepped in for Cory Littleton (who left in free agency) and has filled in admirably. He’ll miss the next three weeks, with a hopeful return in time for the final two weeks of the Fantasy Football Playoffs.

Melvin Ingram, DL, Los Angeles Chargers

Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: Out

Ingram is another guy I’ve consistently mentioned dropping. The knee is still an issue for him, and as a guy who’s been in this league a long time I’d say it’s likely that continues.

He’s still an easy cut for me. Along with his unavailability, his production has been near zero as well. I don’t see the sense in rostering the guy, personally.

Bobby Okereke, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Practice Week: DNP, DNP, DNP
Injury Designation: Out

With him not managing to practice at all this week I’d call it likely he misses at least one more game.

As mentioned earlier, this makes Walker a flex consideration so long as Okereke is out.

Week 12 IDP Dream Stream Team

Check out this list of players I’ve found that draw great matchups this week! If the above or other injuries have impacted you, here are some possible streaming candidates!

Adrian Phillips, DB, New England Patriots

I like this play especially if Kyle Dugger misses this week. Arizona offers a great matchup to the DB position, and Phillips has proven he can put up numbers if he’s given the opportunity.

Amani Hooker, DB, Tennessee Titans

Hooker actually snuck up on me a bit as someone I really like this week. With Kenny Vaccaro being placed on the IR, Hooker drew the start last week and managed six Tackles, an Interception, and two Passes Defensed. He draws a great matchup against the Colts this week as well.

Troy Reeder, LB, Los Angeles Rams

Reeder is likely filling in for Micah Kiser for the next three weeks. This makes him a three week streaming option, so if you’re missing Kiser (or others) he can buy you three weeks of decent coverage. He draws a neutral matchup this week, but he’ll be playing a valuable three down role.

Robert Spillane, LB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Spillane has shown well in Devin Bush‘s absence. He’s been somewhat inconsistent, but looking back the schemes he was facing weren’t very favorable to the LB position. This week he draws a great matchup against Baltimore. Assuming the game is still played, Spillane isn’t a bad last minute option.

A.J. Klein, LB, Buffalo Bills

I’m so tired of A.J. Klein not getting the respect he deserves. He gets a great matchup this week, and he’s probably going to finish as a LB1 this week AGAIN. Better to have him on your roster than on your opponent’s roster.

Olivier Vernon, DL, Cleveland Browns

Vernon was nailed last week as an IDP Stream Dream Team player. He gets a great matchup against the Jaguars and good ol’ Mike Glennon this weekend. I expect him to feast similarly this week.

Leonard Williams, DL, New York Giants

Williams has been super inconsistent this season, however he draws one of the best matchups this week against a beaten and bruised Cincinnati offensive line, and Brandon Allen at QB.
