Fantasy Football Daily: Checking in on Rodgers, Crabtree and more
November 27, 2013
The fantasy football season is coming down to the wire: this week marks the final game of the regular season in many leagues out there. Extra information on players is becoming more and more important with each passing day, so with that in mind let’s take our daily look around the league at some of the key fantasy players and storylines out there. Here’s the latest.
Denarius Moore, WR, Oakland Raiders: It’s looking like Moore will miss another week of action on Thursday against the Cowboys. He was absent from practice yesterday, due to a shoulder issue which caused him to sit out Week 12.
Owners looking for a fill-in for Moore need not look too far. Rod Streater figures to get some extra reps thanks to the injuries, and he’s found some nice chemistry recently with Raiders QB Matt McGloin. In any case, we’ll keep you posted on Moore’s status.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: This is horrible news for fantasy owners looking to make one last push into the playoffs in their leagues, but it’s looking like Rodgers won’t be able to take the field on Thanksgiving as was (optimistically) hoped earlier. He was able to do some individual work on his own, but the general consensus is that he’s certainly out for the Detroit game.
With this news, Rodgers owners will have to look toward a comeback date of December 8, when the Packers host the Falcons. The good news is that he should be able to post some nice fantasy numbers against a crummy Atlanta team that’s reached the point where they’re just phoning it in.
Michael Crabtree, WR, San Francisco 49ers: If you’re in need of some WR help, hit the waiver wire and see if you can snag Crabtree. He got his activation yesterday after missing the entire season thus far due to an Achilles injury, and is expected to debut against the Rams. Crabtree has been practicing for the past few weeks, so he should be good to go.
It’s tough telling what this situation will do to the other Niners contributors, but we’re not very optimistic about Anquan Boldin’s prospects from here on out.
Daniel Thomas, RB, Miami Dolphins: Even though reports emerged Monday that said Thomas was done for the season with a torn ligament in his foot, he may be able to make a return before the year is out. New information that came out yesterday said he’s got a severe high-ankle sprain and will try to come back within the next few weeks.
That said, we can’t imagine Thomas being of much use to anyone but deep-league owners even if he does return (and even then, it’ll likely be for just a week or two). The majority of us can just drop him.
