Ricky Seals-Jones is inactive today, leaving Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder as the backup TEs behind Travis Kelce. There is typically not much work in the passing game for the Chiefs’ backup TEs.
Kenny Stills has been elevated by the Bills to their active roster from the practice squad. While Stills could still end up inactive tomorrow, this elevation acts as insurance for the Bills in case Gabriel Davis is not able to play.
David Njoku is active today, along with TE Stephen Carlson, giving the Browns four active TEs. Austin Hooper will be the top option of the group, Njoku and Harrison Bryant will also get some passing game work, while Carlson should be expected to mainly be a special teams player.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire reportedly will not play today, taking a step further the earlier reports that he was unlikely to play. His status should be confirmed when inactives are released 90 minutes before kickoff, but for now the assumption should be the Edwards-Helaire misses another week.
Tre’Quan Smith was activated Saturday off of IR, making him eligible to play on Sunday. The Saints are finally getting healthy at WR after a season full of injuries at the position. It will be worth confirming tomorrow that Smith is actually active for the game, but that seems like the plan, barring a setback.
Mark Ingram will reportedly be a healthy inactive tonight for the Ravens, meaning Justice Hill will work as the third RB. Ingram was also inactive last week, so this news is not surprising at all. It appears that Ingram will be a healthy inactive the rest of the season, barring an injury to a RB ahead of him on the depth chart.
Donovan Peoples-Jones is officially active tonight, and he should continue to be the third WR option for the Browns, with Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins the only other consistently used options at the position.
Antonio Gandy-Golden and Robert Foster are both inactive tonight, although neither projected to have a real role in the offense. Dontrelle Inman will instead work as the 4th or 5th WR option tonight.
Le’Veon Bell and Travis Kelce are both active today, but their actual roles are not known. The Chiefs are resting several other top offensive players, so risking Kelce or Bell seems foolish. Reports have already indicated a potentially very limited role for Bell, but nothing has been made clear on Kelce. Both players have the potential to score 0 today, so play them at your own risk.
Cordarrelle Patterson and Cole Kmet are both active today. Patterson is limited as a WR but gets work rushing, while Kmet has had the same number of targets as fellow TE Jimmy Graham over the past two weeks (8 total).
