Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (foot) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's estimated practice report. This week, the 24-year-old has been limited with a foot issue but is expected to be available for the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation and keep an eye out for Wednesday's injury report. He's coming one off one of his best games of the season, catching five passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Bears wide receiver has now hit paydirt in two straight games. Mooney is a borderline WR2 against a woeful Lions defense in Week 12.

Pro Football Focus

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 25 yards on six carries while catching all six of his targets for 31 yards in Monday's 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He logged 36 offensive snaps in his first appearance since Week 5. The Giants offense sputtered in Week 11 and managed just 10 points against Tampa Bay. Barkley was third on the team in receiving and racked up 56 total yards on 12 touches. The former No.2 overall pick now has 220 rushing yards on 60 attempts and two touchdowns while catching 20 passes for 161 yards and a score over six games in 2021. Barkley and the Giants' offense will look to bounce against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 28 of 44 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-37 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. The Sunday night game marked the first time all year that Roethlisberger threw for more than two touchdowns, with the veteran quarterback throwing scores to Diontae Johnson, Eric Ebron, and Pat Freiermuth in the close loss. Roethlisberger has been trending up of late, having thrown five touchdowns in his past two games. Still a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes, he will look to stay hot in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (head) is in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the Week 11 win over the New Orleans Saints. It was another big game for the Eagles defense in their 40-29 win over the Saints, and Slay was able to return an interception 51 yards for a touchdown before suffering his head injury. The score was the 30-year-old's second of the 2021 season, but he'll have to pass through the league's concussion protocol next week in order to play in a Week 12 matchup against the division-rival New York Giants. Coming into Sunday's game, Slay had 38 tackles (28 solo), two interceptions, three passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 10 games.
