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.
Johnson tallied three tackles and added an interception to Sunday's 16-13 loss to Baltimore.
Johnson is putting together a fairly solid year, with four picks and 11 pass deflections to go with 43 tackles. He doesn't do enough to merit much IDP attention but has been an asset for the Rams this season.
Keenum (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Keenum's ability to take part in some individual drills indicates that he's progressing through the concussion protocol. An independent neurologist will ultimately be called upon to clear the quarterback for a return to the field, but the uncertain nature of concussions clouds whether he'll be able to do so this Sunday at Cincinnati. If he's deemed unready to suit up, Nick Foles will serve as the Rams' starting quarterback.
Quinn (hip) has been downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game in Baltimore, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
He has been bothered by the hip issue for over a month, and the Rams will hope that a week off gets him healthy enough to be a big factor down the stretch. Eugene Sims should see some extra snaps on the right side for St. Louis on Sunday.
Bailey has been suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
With Bailey -- who has recorded 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in eight game to date -- set to miss time, it's now understandable that the Rams are expected to work out wideouts Hakeem Nicks, Wes Welker and Vincent Brown, per ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Hoyer (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday. He's expected to start Week 12 against the Saints.
Hoyer, who missed the last game and a half, has managed to avoid mistakes this season with just four interceptions and 13 touchdowns in seven games. This has the makings of a good week for Hoyer as New Orleans ranks last in overall defense and passing touchdowns and is 30th in passing defense.
Polk is trending in the right direction, but as long as he's the No. 3 option (behind Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes) in the Texans' rushing attack, his fantasy utility will be limited to deeper formats.
Washington (hip) caught two of six targets for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Washington had a two-week run in which caught 13 balls, three touchdowns and gained over 200 yards, but has been limited to four catches for 45 yards the last two weeks. It should be noted that Washington's lean weeks coincided with Cecil Shorts returning to action. As Houston's quarterbacks have a full complement of wideout targets, Washington's role has been reduced.
