Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is looking to be a difference-maker in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The 23-year-old had his most productive game of the season against the Denver Broncos last week, logging 16 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 34-24 victory. Jacobs has the opportunity to build on that performance in Week 7 against an Eagles defense that has given up 713 rushing yards and five touchdowns to opposing running backs this season. If Derek Carr can take advantage of that hole in Philly's defense and fire up the running game, Jacobs could get a lot of work in. Fantasy managers should consider the Alabama product a high-end RB2 this weekend.
Tennessee Titans tight end Geoff Swaim (concussion) is active for the Week 12 game against the New England Patriots. Swaim only has 19 receptions for 131 yards and two touchdowns on 26 targets in 10 games for the Titans this year, but Tennessee is desperate for playmakers with receivers A.J. Brown (chest), Julio Jones (hamstring) and Marcus Johnson (hamstring) all on Injured Reserve. Swaim could be more involved in the passing game after sitting out last week, but the Titans have also involved tight ends MyCole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser plenty this year. Swaim will have a little bit more appeal in fantasy with the Titans lacking offensive weapons, but he'll still be a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee) will play against the Colts on Sunday, a lift for this Tampa Bay defense as it tries to slow down Colts running back Jonathan Taylor. With how Taylor has played lately, starting the Buccaneers defense in fantasy isn't the slam-dunk it usually is, but fantasy managers can feel better about it. Meanwhile, running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn is a healthy scratch after playing the past two weeks. He took a season-high nine offensive snaps in Week 11 and had three carries for four yards. He has no impact on fantasy football.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) has officially been ruled out for the Week 12 contest against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Tate was doubtful heading into Sunday's game, so it's no surprise that he'll miss yet another game. The 24-year-old has not seen action since Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens and hasn't been on the fantasy radar at all in 2021 while working as the fourth wideout behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins in a loaded Cincy receiving corps. With Tate out again, Mike Thomas and Stanley Morgan will fight for snaps as the No. 4 pass-catcher against Pittsburgh.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, while wide receiver Kadarius Toney (quad) is out, as previously reported. Barkley saw 12 touches last week for 56 yards and definitely doesn't look like Barkley was expected to look, but he should find a little more space against the Eagles, who allow the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs. You should go ahead and play Barkley in all your redraft leagues, though he's someone you might avoid in DFS contests based on how he looked last week.
Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is active for Sunday's meeting with the Jaguars. Jacksonville has only allowed one receiving touchdown to a running back this season, but Patterson's usage in Atlanta should make him a high-end RB2 option, even with running backs not finding a ton of success in the Jags in the passing game. Patterson is well-rested after missing last week's game and should see the bulk of the backfield touches this week.
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden (foot) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. It will be Haden's second straight missed game, but the good news for the Steelers defense is that they will be getting linebacker T.J. Watt (hip, knee) and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick back for this divisional game. The 32-year-old Haden has 24 tackles (15 solo), five passes defensed and one forced fumble in eight games this season. With him out for the second straight week, James Pierre is expected to get another start at cornerback. With Watt and Fitzpatrick back in the fold, though, the Steelers defense should once again be a top-10 fantasy defense in Week 12.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (arm, back) doesn't have an official injury designation ahead of the Week 12 meeting against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. However, the veteran signal-caller has reportedly been dealing with "chronic pain," specifically in his back and elbow. Nonetheless, Stafford has undoubtedly demonstrated his toughness and has played through various ailments over the years, so fantasy managers should continue to start him, at least until he shows signs of slowing down. Yet, the veteran has taken a beating this season, and Sean McVay will need to figure things out if he hopes to keep him under center, which could include more work moving ahead for Darrell Henderson Jr.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder, foot, groin), who has been struggling with injuries in recent weeks, is finally able to make plays with his legs again and is showing signs of looking like himself, according to those who see him every day. His injuries are starting to heal, and one source said he's feeling as good as he has in a month. Another source described Mayfield as having no limitations. The last time Mayfield faced the Baltimore Ravens, his Week 12 opponent on Sunday night, he averaged more than six yards per rush and scored a touchdown. Mayfield will be getting pass-catching back Kareem Hunt (calf) back in Week 12 and will face a porous Ravens secondary, but he'll still be on the low end of the QB2 spectrum in Cleveland's run-first offense.
The San Francisco 49ers have activated linebacker Dre Greenlaw (groin) from Injured Reserve, and he will be eligible to play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Greenlaw had core-muscle surgery after getting injured in the season opener and hasn't played since. The 24-year-old will almost certainly be on a snap count if he's active against the Vikings in Week 12. But Greenlaw showed in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions that he can be a key defensive player for the Niners when healthy, as he had six combined tackles and an interception returned for a touchdown before leaving with an injury. The 49ers defense has been playing much better in recent weeks, but they'll have a tough task against Minnesota this Sunday.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) is back at full strength, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. The former MVP didn't suit up for the Week 11 win over the Bears because of a Non-COVID-related sickness, allowing backup signal-caller Tyler Huntley to take over under center. Fortunately, Jackson reportedly had a "great week at practice" and was also "more energized," according to his teammates. Jackson has already played well against Cleveland, the Ravens' Week 12 opponent, throughout his career. However, the latest update certainly isn't good news for Browns' fans, although his fantasy managers likely feel differently.
