This week we give thanks to easy matchups, excellent sleepers and strong plays off the waiver wire. Dave Richard previews over nearly 180 players for Week 12 in this week's Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet.
Donnell isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington, after the Giants found a "troubling result" on an MRI on his neck, Dan Graziano of ESPN New York reports. "It's not looking good," Donnell said.
On Monday, Donnell stated that he felt 100 percent after doctors cleared him, but Wednesday's development leaves the tight end without a return date. While he'll likely be ruled out in advance of Sunday's game, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com speculated that Donnell may be in danger of missing the rest of the season. In the meantime, Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham will handle TE reps for the Giants, but a free-agent addition to the corps isn't out of the question.
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Giants defensive end Damontre Moore had his right arm in a sling as he watched Texas A&M's Pro Day with other former Aggies, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. More information on Moore's injury was not immediately available.
Unga (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Jasper Brinkley will step in at middle linebacker, but he didn't get much playing time in nickel packages last week, so he isn't a recommended IDP option for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Unga won't necessarily have an every-down role once he's healthy.
Boyle (foot) practiced Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Boyle, who sat out Week 11's game with a foot injury, is thus trending in the right direction as Monday's game against the Browns approaches, though it's unclear at this stage how close to a full practice the tight end turned in Wednesday.
An MRI confirmed that Flacco tore both his ACL and MCL in Sunday's win over the Rams, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.
Per the report, coach John Harbaugh noted that indications at this stage are that Flacco will be ready for training camp next season, but in the meantime, the Ravens will turn to veteran signal-caller Matt Schaub and a backup to be named later.
Forsett, who suffered a broken right arm Sunday, is undergoing surgery Monday, the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.
Though the running back is done for the season and presumably headed for IR, coach John Harbaugh noted Monday of Forsett that he "would expect Justin back next year full speed and ready to go." In the meantime, Javorius Allen will step in as the Ravens' starting running back, with Raheem Mostert and Terrance West in the mix to see complementary work in the team's backfield moving forward.
