Week 12 Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Jarvis Landry, New England Patriots WRs, Allen Hurns, John Brown

Jarvis Landry

Jarvis Landry

The wide receiver injury list for concerned fantasy owners in Week 12 is not nearly as long as it has been. That is, unless you have any of the New England wideouts. While six teams played on Thursday, there are still 26 teams that will be in action today and Monday. Hopefully no new names will join this list next week.

As for Week 12, players that did practice in full and were listed as probable (Larry Fitzgerald, Emmanuel Sanders, Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Kendall Wright, Malcom Floyd, Doug Baldwin, Anquan Boldin, Marvin Jones, Willie Snead, Nate Washington) are not on the injury report as they will play Sunday. Start them as you normally would.

Be sure to check the key RB injuries and also the QBs/TEs (and a K!).

Note: All games are at 1 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.

Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson, New England Patriots at Denver Broncos (Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET)


While most fantasy owners knew Edelman was out, Amendola was a question mark all week. However, he did not make the trip to Denver, so he also will be out on Sunday night. However, he was able to put in limited practices, so it is possible that Amendola will be back in Week 13. Dobson was placed on season-ending IR with an ankle injury. Edelman had surgery on his foot and is expected to be out for the rest of the regular season.

Jarvis Landry, WR, Miami Dolphins at New York Jets

Questionable – Knee

Landry didn't practice on Friday, which is usually worrisome for fantasy owners. However, the Dolphins said they were giving him a day off so he could go on Sunday. It appears that Landry will play and the Jets will not have Darrelle Revis (concussion) for Week 12. If Landry is active (and we'll know early), he's a WR1 in a good matchup.

Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. San Diego Chargers

Probable – Thigh

Hurns has played through a multitude of injuries all year and this week will not be an exception. He is listed with a thigh injury, but he is still a WR2. Last week, he broke his seven-game touchdown streak and only had three receptions for 19 yards in that Thursday night thriller. San Diego has a terrible run defense but a decent secondary. They allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs.

John Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET)

Probable – Hamstring

It appears that finally Brown is healthier than he has been in previous weeks, given the Probable tag. He practiced on a limited basis, and hopefully will be able to get back to where he was earlier in the season. He had three receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 11, and those numbers should increase in Week 12. He's a WR3 with upside, just because of the possibility of re-injuring his hamstring.

Michael Floyd, WR, Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET)

Questionable – Hamstring

In the past four games he's played, Floyd has 19 receptions for 328 yards and five touchdowns. He's scored at least one touchdown in each of the past four games he's played. However, John Brown has been out or limited in each of those games. Now that Brown is back, Floyd is a WR3. He'll still be used, but not as much with Brown involved. Since the 49ers’ defense is terrible, both Cardinal WRs can be started for fantasy purposes as both may find the end zone.

Keshawn Martin, WR, New England Patriots at Denver Broncos (Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET)

Questionable – Hamstring

Martin makes the injury report because fantasy owners are desperately looking for a wide receiver on the Patriots as the entire roster is seemingly injured. Martin played in a few games this season and has six receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown. He's been sidelined with a hamstring injury, but now that Danny Amendola is the latest to go down with an injury, it is likely that if Martin can play, the Patriots will put him out on the field. He's a desperation WR4 with upside.

Leonard Hankerson, WR, Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings

Out – Hamstring

Hankerson returned in Week 11 after not playing since Week 7 with a hamstring injury. He had four receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown and re-injured his hamstring in the process. He's been ruled out for Week 12. Hankerson is a player that you can safely drop if you can pick up a handcuff for your running back instead.
