New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones likely shouldn't be considered in Week 4 versus the Chicago Bears. The former first-round pick has yet to record 200 passing yards in a game this season while tossing three total touchdowns in the first three weeks. The only thing that makes the Duke product a somewhat relevant quarterback is the fact he's rushed for 125 yards on 25 attempts to begin the season. With Sterling Shepard now out for the season, Jones now has an even more depleted wide receiver room entering Week 4. The Giants will likely lean on Saquon Barkley on Sunday, so the 25-year-old quarterback is a low-end quarterback option this week.
New England Patriots running back Damien Harris (thigh) was the lone player absent from practice on Tuesday. Harris has missed the last two days of practice and is not expected to suit up in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night after injuring his thigh in last Thursday night's loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving. He was seen on crutches after the Week 12 game, and fantasy managers should have him firmly on their benches this week. Rhamondre Stevenson, who has already become New England's lead back, is a must-start on Thursday, even in the tough matchup. With Harris likely sidelined, rookies Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris will be fighting for change-of-pace scraps behind Stevenson on Thursday Night Football.
The Tennessee Titans restructured the contract of wide receiver Robert Woods on Tuesday by converting his base salary into a signing bonus, creating $2.6 million in salary cap space. The Titans were tight to the salary cap before the move. Fantasy managers were hoping for more production from Woods as the Titans' No. 1 receiver this year, but the 30-year-old veteran has produced only 32 receptions on 56 targets for 351 yards and one touchdown in 11 games in his first year in Tennessee's run-first offense. Woods has mostly been a short-area target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and he lacks any real upside on a weekly basis in this offense as a WR4/flex for fantasy managers.
San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price could serve as the No. 2 running back behind Christian McCaffrey (knee) in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins with Elijah Mitchell (knee) out six to eight weeks with an MCL sprain. Davis-Price has been a healthy scratch the last three games, but both he and fellow rookie Jordan Mason should see expanded roles with Mitchell out and McCaffrey also dealing with knee irritation. The 22-year-old last saw action as CMC's backup in Week 7, handling just two carries for four yards on 13 offensive snaps. Even if McCaffrey plays this Sunday against the Dolphins, Davis-Price could have his biggest role of the season. He's worth a waiver-wire pickup this week, even if you don't have McCaffrey rostered.
Chicago Bears standout safety Eddie Jackson (foot) suffered what appears to be a serious Lisfranc injury in the Week 12 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, according to sources. Jackson is still receiving opinions on his foot, but he's considered out indefinitely and will be out in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. It's a tough loss for the Bears defense, as Jackson is one of the better safeties in the league. The 28-year-old two-time Pro Bowler has 80 tackles (59 solo), four interceptions, six passes defensed and two forced fumbles in 12 starts for Chicago this year. With his timetable unknown, he's a candidate to go on Injured Reserve, which would require him to miss at least four games. There's a good chance we won't see Jackson again this season. Elijah Hicks will see more playing time in the Bears secondary with Jackson sidelined.
Philadelphia Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (kidney) is out indefinitely after suffering a lacerated kidney in the Sunday night win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 12, according to sources. It's a non-surgical injury for Gardner-Johnson and testing is ongoing, so his timetable is still to be determined, but it's not expected to be a season-ending injury. The 24-year-old could land on Injured Reserve, however, which would keep him out for at least four games. With the Eagles pretty much a lock to make the postseason, the Eagles will probably hope he can return for a deep playoff run. It's a big loss for Philly's secondary, though, as Gardner-Johnson had racked up a career-high 60 tackles (55 solo), four tackles for loss, one sack, a league-high six interceptions and eight passes defensed in 11 starts.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) is not expected to practice much, if at all this week due to his calf strain, according to sources. He'll receive around-the-clock treatment in hopes of playing in Week 13 against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. Fantasy managers should expect Jacobs to be questionable for this weekend's game after he aggravated a calf strain in the Week 12 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks when he rumbled for a season-high 229 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries. The 24-year-old is the RB1 in half-point PPR scoring this year, so he'll be a must-start if he's active against the Bolts. If he doesn't get cleared this week, Ameer Abdullah would likely lead a backfield that would also include Brandon Bolden and rookie Zamir White. Abdullah is worth a speculative waiver-wire pickup this week.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce failed to catch any of his two targets in the Colts' 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12. The Colts' rookie wideout was targeted early, but faded out of the game plan in favor of tight end Jelani Woods. With the Colts offense struggling to consistently function at a professional level, Pierce's zeroes may become mainstays in the fantasy football world. The Colts seemingly always finding themselves in close games could work in the favor of Pierce and other Colts' skill position players, however. But with too many mouths to feed in Indianapolis, it will be hard to trust Pierce as anything more than a boom-or-bust WR4 in Week 13.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jelani Woods caught eight of nine targets for 98 yards in the Colts 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12. Woods was peppered with targets all night as quarterback Matt Ryan was in dump off mode due to being pressured all night. Woods' 98 yards let the Colts, and his nine targets were second on the team. Whether this performance is a fluke or not remains to be seen, but it is noteworthy that he almost doubled fellow tight end Mo Alie-Cox in snaps. Woods is a name to keep an eye on for the tail end of the fantasy regular season, especially in a position as weak as tight end. He's a low-end, sleeper option in Week 13 versus Dallas.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell caught two of three targets for 14 yards in the Colts' 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The stat line for Campbell was disappointing, as his three targets were his fewest since Week 8. Campbell's role of the short yardage security blanket was actually played by tight end Jelani Woods, and Campbell's targets weren't very nicely placed. Frankly, with quarterback Matt Ryan's struggles in the loss, Campbell was lucky to even have two catches. This seems to be the floor for Campbell, and he has a chance to rebound as a mid-range WR3 against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. caught seven of 11 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 12 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittman paced the team with a team-high 11 targets, but was surprisingly out-gained 98-61 by tight end Jelani Woods. Quarterback Matt Ryan was under duress for most of the night and dump offs at or a few yards in front of the line of scrimmage seemed to be his preferred play. Pittman was still able to remain the lead target for Ryan, a role that figures to see high volume should the Colts continue to trail football games. Pittman's high floor keeps him ranked as a solid WR2, especially in PPR leagues.
