All news points strongly towards Delvin Breaux playing at San Francisco. This will result in a downgrade to Torrey Smith. The San Francisco wide receivers have not been a consistent play in fantasy this year though, so it may be best to avoid the situation where you can.
Lattimore exited Sunday's win over the Redskins and was able to play only six defensive snaps in the game. The practice sessions the rest of this week should provide of the rookie first-round pick's Week 12 status, but it's not an ideal start to the week.
For those in deeper leagues, this all merits watching since Jones could serve anywhere from the top wide receiver Sunday all the way down to third or fourth. Jones missed the Week 10 game against the Saints, but if you combine Weeks 9 and 11 he posted 10 total catches for 121 yards and his first NFL score, numbers more in line with what the Bills were expecting when they made Jones their second-round selection in April. If the two guys in front of him are forced to sit this week, Jones might offer weekly value given that he'd be one of Tyrod Taylor's top targets, while there's a good chance the Bills could be playing from behind, being on the road at Kansas City after getting clobbered the last three games.
Lee injured his knee in Week 10 against the Cardinals and wasn't available to play last week against the Giants. However, his full participation Wednesday puts him on a good track to make his return for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.
The Cardinals were forced to place Tyvon Branch on injured reserve last week due to a torn ACL, and head coach Bruce Arians give Baker the first opportunity to replace Branch at strong safety. While earning all 70 defensive snaps, Baker made enough of an impression in every realm to receive a 99.9 grade from PFF, according to Kyle Odegard of the team's official site. Among his accomplishments, Baker caused pressure on all three of his blitzes, one of which was a strip-sack and fumble recovery, and surrendered two catches on three targets for a measly 18 yards. If he keeps up the pace, he'll be worthy of a roster spot in the majority of IDP formats.
Lynch has missed the past four games with a strained calf but seems to be in line to return for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks. However, even if he does play, it isn't clear how big of a role he'd have in his first game back from injury.
Webster was removed from Sunday's visit to Minnesota due to a concussion, but only a few days removed from picking up the injury, he appears to be progressing through the protocol for head injuries. As evidence, head coach Sean McVay told Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News that "all things are going in a positive direction" with Webster's recovery. An appearance at practice Thursday or Friday would lend further credence to McVay's claims.
Amerson has missed each of the past three games due to an undisclosed foot injury. He doesn't appear to be on track to return in time for Sunday's game against the Broncos but still has an opportunity to return to practice Thursday and Friday.
Dunbar and knee concerns have gone hand in hand throughout his career. The primary reason he's played in 56 of a possible 90 contests to date, his absence Wednesday isn't an encouraging sign. On the other hand, the Rams may be giving Dunbar the day off as a precautionary measure. As a result, his activity level should be monitored closely as the weekend approaches to gauge his chances to spell Todd Gurley against the Saints on Sunday.
Byard injured his shoulder in last Thursday's loss to the Steelers, but didn't miss any snaps and was expected to be good to go for Week 12. The 24-year-old will hope to continue his breakout season against the Colts on Sunday.
Orakpo suffered a minor leg injury in last Thursday's loss to the Steelers but wasn't expected to miss any time. The 31-year-old has only 2.5 sacks on the season and will hope to add to his total against the Colts this week.
Wagner missed a Week 9 practice due to a hamstring injury and was eventually deemed questionable for the ensuing game. That said, he proceeded to post his third double-digit tackle outing of the season, racking up 12 in a home loss to the Redskins. Due to his standing as the NFL's second-leading tackler with 92, Wagner's status is worth watching as the week goes on.
