Check out the new Awesemo Week 12 Injury Report – for the most up to date info on the Week 12 slate!

Tuesday, November 24

Adam Thielen, WR | Minnesota Vikings (COVID): Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Vikings are placing Thielen on the team’s injured reserve/COVID list. With this news breaking so early in the week, Thielen has a chance to play during week 12 when the Vikings face the Panthers. I’ll be updating this situation as the news breaks during the week. In the event Thielen doesn’t play, Justin Jefferson would become the team’s WR1.

Mark Ingram, RB | Baltimore Ravens (COVID): Reports came out of the Baltimore camp Monday afternoon stating that Ingram andJ.K. Dobbins are being placed on the team’s injured reserve/COVID list. Ingram and Dobbins will not play during Thursday’s game against the Steelers.Gus Edwards and Justice Hill need to be added from the wavier wire and rostered in all season-long fantasy leagues.

Julio Jones, WR | (Hamstring): Jones exited Sunday’s match against the New Orleans Saints during the first quarter of the contest due to a hamstring injury. Falcons head coach Raheem Morris stated to the media on Monday that Jones could be a game-time-decision. Morris has been known to hold Jones out of practice during the week and then fire him up the day of the game. Calvin Ridley would see an increase of targets with Julio off the field as well as Russell Gage.

Christian McCaffrey, RB | Carolina Panthers (Shoulder): There is a high probability that the Panthers will sit McCaffrey until the team returns from their week 13 bye. That means that we wouldn’t see the Panthers star running back until week 14. Panthers Head coach Matt Rhule said that McCaffrey is week-to-week. It would be best to act as if Mike Davis is still starting in place of McCaffrey until we get word otherwise. Mike Davis will be an RB1 during week 12.

Austin Ekeler, RB | Los Angeles Chargers (Hamstring): Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that Austin Ekeler will resume practicing this week. The Chargers are designating Ekeler for return from the team’s injured reserve, which is excellent news for the team. Ekeler’s 21-day practice window is now open. How Ekeler responds to practice after being away from the team since week four will be worth monitoring. There is a slim chance Austin Ekeler suits up in week 12. Ekeler automatically slides into RB2 conversations once he’s activated.

Kyler Murray, QB | Arizona Cardinals (Shoulder): Murray may have tweaked his throwing shoulder during week 11. Murray was wincing on the sideline late in the 4th quarter when the Cardinals faced the Seahawks. He was a nonparticipant during practice on Monday. Kyler did tell the media, “I feel fine.” I feel good.” It looks like the team is just being cautious. Murray will be a top QB option in week 12 when the Arizona Cardinals face the New England Patriots.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
