Cardinals' Trey McBride (groin) DNP on Wednesday
Arizona Cardinals tight end Trey McBride (groin) did not practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 13's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
McBride was added to the injury report on Wednesday with a groin injury and did not practice. The severity of the injury is unknown, but McBride's practice participation will now need to be monitored the rest of the week. Michael Wilson (shoulder) and Marquise Brown (heel) also missed practice on Wednesday.
McBride's Week 13 projection includes 4.8 receptions, 54.9 yards, 0.28 touchdowns, and 9.5 FanDuel points. His salary is $6,700.
Arizona's Marquise Brown (heel) absent for Wednesday's practice
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday.
Despite missing two practices last week with a heel injury, Brown was able to suit up and play his normal starting role. Expect Hollywood to be active for Week 13's matchup versus a Pittsburgh Steelers' defense ranked 20th in fantasy points allowed per game to receivers unless he is unable to participate in any practices.
Brown's current projection includes 4.1 receptions for 56.1 yards on 7.4 targets.
Dallas Goedert (forearm) still sidelined Wednesday for Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) did not practice on Wednesday for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Goedert is reportedly trying to play on Sunday for the first time since injuring his forearm in Week 9, but he will likely need to return to practice first. The 28-year-old tight end totaled 47 targets in his last seven healthy games, including 7 looks in the red zone.
Goedert is averaging 8.0 FanDuel points per game this season, with 5.8 targets, 4.2 receptions, and 45.6 yards. The 49ers are allowing the fifth-fewest FanDuel points per game to tight ends this season.
Chargers' Keenan Allen (quad) DNP on Wednesday
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (quad) did not practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 13's game against the New England Patriots.
Allen was added to the injury report on Wednesday with a quad injury and did not practice. The severity of the injury is unknown, but it's possible Los Angeles is providing the veteran wide receiver with a bit of rest early in the week. Thursday's practice report will provide more information.
Allen's Week 13 projection includes 7.8 receptions, 90.1 yards, 0.48 touchdowns, and 15.7 FanDuel points. His salary is $9,000.
De'Von Achane (knee) limited for Dolphins on Wednesday
Miami Dolphins running back De'Von Achane (knee) was limited at practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 13's game against the Washington Commanders.
Achane opened the week with a limited practice on Wednesday after sitting out Week 12's game with a knee injury. A return to a full practice on Thursday or Friday would be an excellent sign for Achane heading into Sunday's clash with Washington. If Achane is available, our models expect him to handle 11.2 carries and catch 2.0 passes against the Commanders.
Achane's Wednesday projection includes 50.9 rushing yards, 14.8 receiving yards, 0.57 total touchdowns, and 10.8 FanDuel points. His salary is $7,400.
Kenny Pickett (ankle) practicing for Steelers in full Wednesday
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (ankle) practiced in full on Wednesday for Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin previously said Pickett could be limited at practice this week due to an ankle issue, but that wasn't the case on Wednesday. In Pickett's first game without offensive coordinator Matt Canada last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, he completed 24 of 33 pass attempts for 278 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. The Steelers should have an even easier time moving the ball against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Pickett is the QB14 in numberFire's Week 13 rankings and our models project him for 15.8 FanDuel points, with 210.2 passing yards, 1.29 touchdowns, and 0.7 interceptions. The Cardinals are allowing the ninth-most FanDuel points per game to quarterbacks this season and they have the second-worst pass defense in the league, according to our opponent-adjusted efficiency metrics.
