COACHING MOVES - WEEK 13 INJURY UPDATE

As we prepare you for your Week 13 fantasy matchups, there are a ton of injuries to monitor through the weekend. Some news is good, and some not so good, but either way you need to be on top of your players' status as game time approaches on Sunday morning in order to set the best lineup possible. Here are some of this week's key injuries to note. And don't forget to double check injury status on Sunday morning!

COACHES' CRIB NOTES

• Allen Hurns has been ruled out for the Jaguars matchup against the Titans as he deals with a concussion. That means even more looks for Allen Robinson and Julius Thomas.

• Devonta Freeman is listed as probable for the Falcons Week 13 matchup against the Buccaneers. He missed last week with a concussion but is likely to start against a Tampa Bay team that he dropped 131 total yards on in Week 8. He's a solid RB1 for the rest of the season.

• Rob Gronkowski has officially been ruled for Sunday's game against the Eagles. It's not surprising as he injured his knee just one week ago. Scott Chandler should get the majority of TE reps for the Patriots and makes a nice fill-in for Gronk owners in need.

• Andre Ellington won't play against the Rams on Sunday as he deals with a turf toe injury. We figured as much. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has said that rookie David Johnson could push for "25 touches" and should be just fine as an RB2 with upside, especially in PPR formats.

• Tyler Eifert is doubtful against the Browns after he suffered a neck injury last week. The Bengals don't want to risk Eifert in a regular season game that they should win against Cleveland. They'd rather keep him healthy for a playoff run. If you haven't already, scoop another TE off the waiver wire to slot in for the red zone monster this week.

• Danny Amendola has practiced on a limited basis ahead of the Patriots Week 13 game against the Eagles. It will be hard to trust him as anything more than a decoy if he does suit up. Knee injuries can greatly limit the mobility of a slot wideout like Amendola, and the Patriots will likely run a ground-and-pound scheme against a sorry Eagles run defense.

• Heath Miller will likely sit out with a rib injury this week. Not that your fantasy matchup relies on Miller this week, but simply adding another injured TE to the long list. Matt Spaeth and/or Jesse James may get more opportunities if Miller sits.

• Ryan Mathews will miss his second straight game as he remains in the league's concussion protocol. Mathews is a historically slow healer and even if he was playing we wouldn't expect much from him in an Eagles offense that has been slumping. Darren Sproles can get a look in deeper PPR formats.
