Week 12 Fantasy Football RB Injury Report | AFC

We’ll start in the AFC, where the list is shockingly small for this time of year. It’s a holiday miracle.

Jeremy McNichols, Tennessee Titans

After cutting veteran Adrian Peterson, the Titans will also be without Jeremy McNichols for Week 12 with a concussion. D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard should see large workloads.

Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots

Rhamondre Stevenson is listed as questionable (knee) after popping up on the injury report on Thursday.

He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and appears to be in line to play.

Damien Harris, New England Patriots

The other half of the Patriots backfield committee, Damien Harris, is questionable with a neck injury. Nevertheless, he practiced in a limited capacity all week and should be good to go.

Michael Carter, New York Jets

Michael Carter is out with an ankle injury that is going to keep him sidelined for several weeks. It’s an unfortunate blow for a rookie who was coming into his own lately.

Week 12 Fantasy Football RB Injury Report | NFC

Jordan Howard, Philadelphia Eagles

Jordan Howard is out for Week 12 with a knee injury. Miles Sanders and Boston Scott will handle the rushing duties this week against the Giants.

Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

Speaking of the Giants game, Saquon Barkley is officially listed as questionable, but it appears that he’s on track to play. After a slow return against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Barkley will look to get back to his RB1 ways against the Eagles.

Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers

Elijah Mitchell is doubtful with a finger injury that required surgery last week. If you’re currently planning on deploying him this week, come up with other plans.
