Donovan Peoples-Jones is questionable for Week 12

We break down the news that Donovan Peoples-Jones is questionable heading into Week 12.

Friday update: Peoples-Jones is questionable to play in Week 12, but did look good in practice Friday. He appears to be trending in the right direction.

Thursday update: Peoples-Jones returned to practice on Thursday and was limited. We’ll see how he does in Friday’s practice.

The Cleveland Browns are dealing with a banged-up wide receiver corps. Jarvis Landry aggravated a knee injury and did not practice on Wednesday to open Week 12, and Donovan Peoples-Jones is also off to a slow start this week. He did not practice on Wednesday due to a groin injury.

While Landry has dealt with his knee injury for some time now and still managed to play some on Sunday, DPJ injured the groin last week during practice and ended up inactive for Week 11.

Fantasy football implications

The Browns passing game has been a mess of late and Baker Mayfield could be without at least one of his top two weapons this week. Landry is a decent bet to play, but we’ll see what Thursday and Friday brings. Given his absence last week, Peoples-Jones seems less likely to play. But again, keep an eye on Thursday and Friday before making lineup decisions around him.
