2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 12 FRIDAY INJURY REPORT: COREY DAVIS COULD BE READY FOR FULL BREAKOUT WITH NO RISHARD MATTHEWS

The injuries are piling up in fantasy football as we head down the stretch and so here are the latest news items to be made away of.

-Tennessee Titans wideout Rishard Matthews is questionable and unlikely to play Sunday due to a recently developed hamstring strain.  Late week downgrades almost always result in a seat on the bench and Matthews sitting out means rookie Corey Davis has his best chance yet to dominate looks from struggling QB Marcus Mariota against a forgiving Indianapolis Colts defense Sunday.  Start Davis everywhere.

-Denver Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders is questionable with an ankle injury but word is he will be out there for Paxton Lynch's first start of the season.  Considering how bad the QB play been from the Bronco passers this season, Sanders is nothing but a shaky WR 3 this week even without the injury. 

-Houston Texans wideout Will Fuller will be not go Sunday as he has been ruled out for the second week in a row with a rib injury.  That means Bruce Ellington is worth another look in PPR formats but he is not looking as great a play this week as he was last when DeAndre Hopkins had to deal with Patrick Peterson.

-Kenny Stills owners had to be jumping for joy when they saw that Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler would sit out with the concussion suffered last week.  That means Still's BFF Matt Moore will be under center and the two have been a tremendous connection in the limited time they have had to play with one another this season.  Start Stills everywhere. 

-All systems are a go for Colts QB Jacoy Brissett who was removed from the injury report after clearing concussion protocol.  Brissett has played quite well this season replacing the recovering Andrew Luck and at the very least he has cemented himself as a good backup next season. 

-Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones was removed from the injury report as his ongoing knee and ankle woes seem to have abated for now. 

-Jamaal Williams will be the bellcow back for the Green Bay Packers this week once again as fellow runner Ty Montgomery is out with ongoing pain in his bruised ribs.  Williams is nothing but a low-end RB 2 in standard leagues based on volume alone as he has not impressed as a runner. 

-Yet again Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is listed as questionable this week but the gy draws that tag almost every week and goes out to play on Sunday.  Graham has been locked in as a major TD producer the last month of the season and he should be started with full confidence. 

-There will be no Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster Sunday as he will sit with a hamstring injury.  This is tough timing as Smith-Schuster has been really good the last few weeks but the emergence will have to wait at least as week.
