Cornell Powell
WR KC (8)
Sun 11/27/22 10:10 AM

The Chiefs elevated Powell from the practice squad Saturday, Matt Derrick of reports.
EDGE Analysis
If Powell is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, he'll add depth to a receiver group that will be without Mecole Hardman (abdomen) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) for the Week 12 contest. Even so, Powell will still be fifth in the pecking order at wideout, and he's more likely to see snaps on special teams than on offense.

OUTOdell Beckham
Sun 11/27/22 9:56 AM

Beckham (knee) is scheduled to meet with the Giants on Thursday and Friday before making visits to the Cowboys and Bills following the weekend, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
According to Rapoport, one source with direct knowledge of Beckham's rehab program for the torn ACL in his left knee he suffered Feb. 13 in the Rams' Super Bowl win over the Bengals said the wideout has received full medical clearance, though Beckham will still need time to get back up to game speed with football-type activities upon signing with a team. Before ramping up in practice, he'll first have to choose his next destination, with the Giants, Cowboys and Bills currently representing the frontrunners for his services. Since he won't be meeting with the Cowboys and Bills until early next week before likely deciding on his next team soon thereafter, Beckham looks like he can safely be ruled out from making his 2022 debut Week 13. A Week 14 debut may not be feasible either if he requires more practice time to get his conditioning in order.

Aaron Rodgers
QB GB (14)
Sun 11/27/22 9:31 AM

Rodgers, who doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Eagles, has been playing through an avulsion fracture in his right thumb since injuring the finger in an Oct. 9 loss to the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though he has yet to miss any games this season, Rodgers has been listed on Packers injury reports for seven straight weeks with the right thumb issue. The extent of the injury wasn't fully known until Rodgers quietly disclosed Wednesday that his thumb was fractured when Giants defender Oshane Ximenes hit the quarterback's hand on a Hail Mary attempt on the final play of the Week 5 contest. Rapoport's report confirms that Rodgers is dealing with an avulsion fracture, an injury that results in a torn ligament that creates joint instability in the thumb. Though Rodgers said he'll continue to play and isn't considering surgery to address the injury either during the season or after the season, the avulsion fracture may in part explain why the reigning NFL MVP's performance has taken a step back in 2022. In the six games since he suffered the injury, the Packers have gone 1-5 while Rodgers has completed 62 percent of his throws for 6.7 yards per attempt and an 11:4 TD:INT.

Van Jefferson
WR LAR (7)
Sun 11/27/22 9:20 AM

Jefferson is expected to serve as the Rams' No. 1 wideout for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with Cooper Kupp (ankle) on injured reserve and with Allen Robinson (ankle) listed as questionable but not expected to play, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
EDGE Analysis
Additionally, starting tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) is listed as questionable, though it's unclear whether he's trending toward playing or sitting out Sunday's contest. Regardless, Jefferson looks like one of the more established receiving options for the Rams, though that doesn't necessarily mean he profiles as a reliable fantasy option this week. He'll likely be working with an unproven third-year quarterback in Bryce Perkins, who is expected to make his first NFL start while top signal-caller Matthew Stafford (neck/concussion protocol) sits for the second time in three games. Though the matchup with the high-octane Chiefs offense could yield more possessions than usual for the Rams offense, Perkins will be working behind one of the NFL's worst offensive lines and a lack of established skill-position talent, which could make it difficult for Los Angeles to keep pace. Jefferson, who has produced a modest 6-68-1 receiving line on 13 targets through four appearances this season, thus might be little more than a risky flex play in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Rachaad White
RB TB (11)
Sun 11/27/22 8:47 AM

White is scheduled to make his second consecutive start Sunday against the Browns with Leonard Fournette (hip) having been downgraded from doubtful to out in advance of the contest, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
EDGE Analysis
Even before Fournette departed in the fourth quarter of the Buccaneers' last game Week 10 in London against the Seahawks, White appeared to work his way into a timeshare with the veteran back. The rookie provided a spark to a rushing attack that had languished for most of the season, carrying 22 times for 105 yards in the Buccaneers' 21-16 win. With Fournette not yet healthy coming out of a Week 11 bye, White looks like he'll be the clear lead runner for Tampa Bay on Sunday, with Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Giovani Bernard offering depth behind him. Though White has displayed some pass-catching chops with 20 receptions for 135 yards on 25 targets this season, Bernard is an accomplished third-down back in his own right. With that in mind, the Buccaneers might not be eager to hand White a true three-down workload Sunday, so his fantasy ceiling this week may be lower in PPR formats. White profiles as a strong option in the majority of leagues nonetheless while he faces off against a Browns defense that has struggled to stop the run this season.

QMarshon Lattimore
CB NO (14)
Sun 11/27/22 8:36 AM

Lattimore (kidney), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though the star cornerback returned to practice this week and is showing progress in his recovery from a lacerated kidney, the Saints appear to err on the side of caution and keep him out for a seventh consecutive game. Assuming Lattimore is made inactive ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, he'll have a good chance at making it back to action Week 13 at Tampa Bay, barring no setbacks in the Saints' upcoming practices.

QCameron Jordan
EDR/DE NO (14)
Sun 11/27/22 8:33 AM

Jordan (orbital), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in San Francisco, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Jordan was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday after he was sidelined for last week's win over the Rams due to a fractured orbital. Though the veteran defensive end's inability to upgrade to full practice activity resulted in him carrying a designation into the weekend, he looks like he made enough progress for the Saints to feel comfortable bringing him back in the lineup. Jordan's availability will be confirmed when the Saints release their inactive list 90 minutes before the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

OUTMatthew Stafford
QB LAR (7)
Sun 11/27/22 8:29 AM

The Rams are uncertain when Stafford (neck/concussion protocol) will be available to play again this season, Adam Schefter of reports.
EDGE Analysis
After he entered the concussion protocol for the second time in less than a month following his early exit from the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Saints, Stafford didn't practice in any fashion this week before being ruled out ahead of Sunday's game in Kansas City. As Schefter notes, Stafford suffered a strained neck in the game against the Saints, but he hasn't yet been diagnosed with his second concussion of the season, despite his inclusion in the protocol. However, with head coach Sean McVay noting that Stafford was experiencing some numbness in his legs after taking a hit in the game against the Saints, the 3-7 Rams could be inclined to take a cautious approach with the 34-year-old. Despite their unfavorable position in the NFC playoff picture, the Rams aren't yet planning to shut Stafford down completely, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. With that in mind, Stafford looks like he'll avoid being placed on injured reserve for the time being and will be evaluated on a game-by-game basis.

SUSDeshaun Watson
QB CLE (9)
Sun 11/27/22 8:20 AM

Watson has complied with the terms of his 11-game suspension and will be officially reinstated by the NFL on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
After being handed the ban Aug. 18, Watson was placed on the reserve/suspended list at the conclusion of the preseason and had been away from the Browns for about a month and a half before he was cleared in mid-October to resume working out at the team facility and attending meetings. Watson was then cleared to resume practicing Nov. 14, and once he gets another week of practice under his belt during the upcoming week, he'll unseat Jacoby Brissett as the Browns' new starting quarterback beginning with the team's Dec. 4 in Houston. Watson's return to the lineup against his former Texans squad will mark his first regular-season appearance in 700 days, as he last took the field in Houston's Week 17 game in 2020.

Trevor Siemian
QB CHI (14)
Sun 11/27/22 8:15 AM

Siemian appears on track to start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Jets with Justin Fields (shoulder) listed as questionable but not expected to play, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Before making an official call on Fields' status when it releases its Week 12 inactive list 90 minutes before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Chicago will give Fields an opportunity to warm up early Sunday as he attempts to prove his health. However, after Fields was limited in practices all week due to what's been described as an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder, the second-year signal-caller is considered a "long shot" to play, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Bears seemingly telegraphed Fields' expected absence by elevating Nathan Peterman from the practice squad Saturday, with Peterman likely to serve as Siemian's backup. Siemian has made only one appearance off the bench in 2022, but the 30-year-old has previously picked up 29 starts since entering the NFL in 2015. Four of those starts came last season with the Saints, with Siemian completing 83 of 144 attempts (57.6 percent) for 924 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions in those outings. For as long as the game plan allows for it Sunday, expect the Bears to adopt a more conservative offensive approach under Siemian, who could struggle to help Chicago continue their streak of four consecutive games with at least 24 points.
