QB | Geno Smith | New York Jets | Fantasy

Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) was on crutches with his right ankle in a walking boot after the Week 12 game. He had 37 carries for 224 yards in the game, which was a career high.

This game took a lot out of Moreno, and his status for Week 13 is unknown.

RB | Dennis Johnson | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Houston Texans RB Dennis Johnson rushed 13 times for a season-high 74 yards in Week 12. RB Ben Tate had just seven carries for one yard, and the team liked the way Johnson looked running the ball.

RB | Chris Ivory | New York Jets | Injury, Fantasy
New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) suffered a left ankle injury on the first carry of the day in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. He said Sunday, Nov. 24, that he will have an MRI Monday, Nov. 25. When asked if his ankle injury was of the low or high-sprain variety, he answered, "Both."

WR | Josh Gordon | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted 14 receptions for 237 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The yardage total was a single-game franchise record, but Gordon was not thrilled. "After taking a loss like that, it means nothing," Gordon said Sunday, Nov. 24. The 14 receptions also tied a franchise record.

WR | T.Y. Hilton | Indianapolis Colts | Injury, Fantasy

WR | Stephen Hill | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said he expects WR Stephen Hill will receive his normal number of snaps in the team's Week 12 game. Head coach Rex Ryan indicated earlier in the week that the team may reduce Hill's playing time.

Hill should not be an option for owners this week because they probably have a better option at the position.

WR | Michael Crabtree | San Francisco 49ers | Injury, Fantasy
The San Francisco 49ers will decide by Tuesday, Nov. 26, if they'll activate WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') or place him on Injured Reserve. He's unlikely to play in Week 12.
