Mike Trout returned to the lineup and went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple, one RBI and a run scored against the Astros on Thursday.
After being relegated to one pinch-hitting appearance over the last four games, Trout returned from his back injury to hit two more extra-base hits and kick in another RBI and run scored to the totals. It would appear that Trout is healthy again, though the possibility of another flare-up could happen at some point down the road. But overall, he seems fine and fantasy owners can trust that they'll receive solid production from him moving forward. While this may be a down year, by Trout standards, he's still going to remain one of the most productive fantasy players in the game, so don't go panicking and start selling low.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play Friday.
Faried was listed out on Thursday, but he felt good Friday morning and was upgraded to questionable for the game. Alas, Faried will not play, but he has a chance at playing during the Nuggets' next game on Saturday. Darrell Arthur may start at power forward. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Michael Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Floyd missed Week 11 due to a hamstring injury. He was a limited participant in practice all week, and is questionable for Week 12. Head Coach Bruce Arians is optimistic about his status, but Floyd may just be a decoy come Sunday if he's still limited by his hamstring. There are better plays for Week 12, unless Floyd is declared a full go. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Nik Stauskas (knee) said he is available for Friday's game.
Stauskas was supposed to miss the 76ers next three games after suffering a left knee contusion on Monday, and hoped to return at some point next week. Unexpectedly, Stauskas will be available on Friday to play. This doesn't mean he will play, but is significantly improves the chance that he is able to play on Sunday. Analysis: Ben Diamond
