Good morning! Hopefully the Thanksgiving games saw your fantasy teams get out to a healthy lead. Regardless of how Thursday turned out, our analysts have advice to help you make up ground on Sunday, set the correct lineup and make a playoff push.

Who’s In and Who’s Out

Kareem Hunt and Logan Thomas are set to make their return from injured reserve while Michael Carter and A.J. Brown were both placed on the list, knocking them out for a few weeks. No starting quarterbacks carried injury designations into the weekend after a few weeks that saw some of the best signal callers miss time. See which players are active, inactive, questionable and doubtful in the Week 12 injury report.
