S. Weber - D
Weber (knee) practiced alongside his teammates for the first time Monday.
A positive development for the Canadiens, considering Weber (knee) was originally thought to be out until mid-December. While there's been no official word yet on when we can expect to see the 33-year-old back in action, the fact that Weber is practicing with teammates suggests he could be ahead of schedule.

E. Apple - DB
Apple had three tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's win against the Bengals.
The interception was a gift, as Apple corralled a ball that was tipped into the air by his defensive line in the fourth quarter. Apple nevertheless drew another start -- his third straight -- and has posted solid numbers since coming to New Orleans in a trade with the Giants. So long as opposing quarterbacks continue to avoid throwing at cornerback Marshon Lattimore, Apple should see plenty of action, which gives him value in deeper IDP leagues.

J. Flacco - QB
Flacco (hip) is still getting treatment and will start Sunday's game against the Bengals if he is healthy enough to play, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Coach John Harbaugh essentially shut down rumors about the Ravens using Flacco's hip injury as a convenient excuse to take a look at Lamar Jackson. It appears the 33-year-old truly is dealing with a considerable injury -- one serious enough to warrant the use of crutches over the weekend. There was also a report last week about surgery being an option, but it now seems the Ravens are taking a day-by-day approach with optimism the hip injury will heal on its own. As if the situation weren't tricky enough, Harbaugh said Jackson and Robert Griffin are both candidates to get the Week 11 start if Flacco can't play, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

H. Ryu - SP
Ryu will accept the one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer from the Dodgers on Monday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.
Ryu will return to Los Angeles for at least one more season. The southpaw was stellar across 15 starts for the National League champions in 2018, posting a 1.97 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 89:15 K:BB across 82.1 innings despite missing three-and-a-half months with a groin injury. He'll slot back into the middle of the Dodgers' rotation in 2019.

J. Bates - DB
Bates recorded 11 tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 51-14 loss to the Saints.
Bates led Cincinnati's defense in tackles during the Week 10 loss. The rookie second-round pick has shown continual growth throughout the 2018 regular season, and will look to log another solid performance against the Ravens on Sunday.

S. Rankins - DL
Rankins had two tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's win against the Bengals.
Rankins absolutely embarrassed guard Clint Boling on his third-quarter sack, walking the Bengals offensive lineman into the lap of quarterback Andy Dalton. While Rankins has just 23 total tackles, his five sacks rank second on the team and are the fourth-most among all NFL defensive linemen. The elite quickness that made Rankins a first-round pick in 2016 has been on display this season, making Rankins a potentially appealing option in deeper IDP leagues.

J. Edelman - WR
The ankle injury Edelman suffered Sunday against the Titans is not considered serious, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Per the report, Edelman is not expected to miss much, if any, time. Working in his favor is that the Patriots are on bye Week 11, which will afford Edelman added healing time in advance of the team's Nov. 25 tilt against the Jets. As that contest draws closer, we'd expect Edelman to be listed as a limited practice participant, but for now his chances of being ready to play Week 12 are looking favorable.

M. Walton - RB
Walton did not record a single carry or target during Sunday's 51-14 loss to the Saints.
Walton saw only two offensive snaps during the Week 10 loss. With both Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard healthy for the first time since Week 2, Walton no longer appears to possess a notable role in Cincinnati's offense. The rookie fourth-round pick is expected to see most of his snaps on special teams going forward.
