  Titans | Dexter McCluster could miss last two games    Wed Dec 17, 01:23 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster (knee) has been ruled out for Week 16, and it appears like he will not be able to play in Week 17.

Footballguys view: The Titans offense is just a mess. Having McCluster wouldn't help a whole lot. Fantasy owners--even in dynasty leagues--don't have a lot of stock in McCluster.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray works with first-team    Wed Dec 17, 01:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) wasn't expected to do a lot at practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, but he took first-team snaps at running back while wearing a pad on top of his left hand. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team wanted to see him work in practice to make sure he could carry the ball under duress. 'You start with a plan and a vision for what you need to have there and then you just go through feedback, with DeMarco and the training staff, you try to get it to the point where it's functional and comfortable for him to go play,' Garrett said of the added protection. 'It's an evolution. They'll talk back and forth as the week goes on hopefully get something he's comfortable with.'

Footballguys view: The Cowboys need to be careful here. Murray is the heart and soul of their offense, and their Super Bowl aspirations go down the drain if Murray is out during the playoffs. Fantasy owners are waiting to see if Murray can practice fully on Friday.

  Panthers | Cam Newton back at practice    Wed Dec 17, 01:12 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and he worked with the second-team offense in the portion of practice open to the media. QB Derek Anderson worked with the first-team. Newton's status for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain right now, but he looked to be moving and throwing well Wednesday. He also ran and make some juke moves without difficulty.

Footballguys view: It looks like Newton could be back in action this week. Head coach Ron Rivera said he had hoped to make a decision on the starting QB early in the week.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel shows up early    Wed Dec 17, 01:10 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel arrived more than five hours early to practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, after struggling in his first NFL start in Week 15. Manziel was 10-for-18 for 80 yards and two interceptions against the Cincinnati Bengals last week.

Footballguys view: Good! He needs to learn that he's not good enough right now, and he's only going to get better with incredible dedication to his craft. If Manziel learned that--and stays with it--we feel better about his long-term value in fantasy leagues.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton sitting out    Wed Dec 17, 12:12 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is not participating during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: The Colts are wisely being cautious with Hilton here. Fantasy owners should be anxiously awaiting the Friday injury report. If Hilton practices fully on Friday, we'll feel good about starting him in Week 16.

  Jets | Percy Harvin not practicing    Wed Dec 17, 12:11 PM

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is not participating in team drills during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: We'll have to wait and see if Harvin can practice later this week. This ankle injury was originally thought to be severe enough to end his season. However, he played sparingly last week against the Titans. Harvin was targeted three times by Geno Smith, but he failed to haul in any passes.

  Buccaneers | Make roster moves    Wed Dec 17, 11:54 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed DE Lawrence Sidbury (Colts) Wednesday, Dec. 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. In a corresponding move, the team released CB Crezdon Butler.

Footballguys view: Sidbury was an interesting prospect years ago when he came out of Richmond. His devastating spin move in college has not worked so well as a pro. Sidbury has failed to further develop his raw skill set, and that's why he's bounced around to several different teams.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss practice    Wed Dec 17, 11:18 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: We appreciate Jennings effort, but it doesn't seem like this ankle injury is getting much better. He's tried to play each of the last two weeks, but Jennings doesn't look right. Jennings has three carries for eight yards over that time. We could see Andre Williams with a much larger role once again in Week 16.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen not conceding season    Wed Dec 17, 10:47 AM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone, ankle) said he is taking his injuries 'week to week.'

Footballguys view: Yeah, that's great and all, but there's a chance we may not see Allen the rest of the year. The Chargers need to be cautious with their young receiver. In the meantime, fantasy owners should make other plans as Allen is doubtful to play in Week 16.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph not 100%    Wed Dec 17, 10:20 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) disclosed he had both hips operated on during hernia surgery earlier in the season and admitted he won't be 100% the rest of the year.

Footballguys view: Rudolph has been a good target for rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater. He had 7 catches for 69 yards last week against the Lions, and we like Rudolph as a TE1 against the Dolphins in Week 16.

  Jaguars | Denard Robinson has torn ligament    Wed Dec 17, 10:07 AM

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) has a partially torn ligament in his foot, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Recovery time is six to eight weeks, but he should be ready for offseason work.

Footballguys view: Robinson flashed at times as the lead back for the Jaguars this year. He'll be in the mix for the starting job in 2015, but we're expecting the team to use some form of RBBC.

  Falcons | Julio Jones could sit in Week 16    Tue Dec 16, 09:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is expected to be ready to play in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. However, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter indicated the possibility exists that Jones could sit for a second straight game. 'It's hard when you don't know for sure if a guy is going to play no matter if it's Julio or not Julio,' Koetter said Tuesday, Dec. 16. 'We kind of have to have a contingency both ways. We have some 'what if Julio plays' and some 'what if Julio does not play.' We have both. That's one of the hardest things about not knowing if one of your best guys is going to go.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep track of Jones' practice status during the week. If Jones plays, we see him as a low-end WR1. If he misses the game, then Roddy White would get a bump in the projections to a mid-range WR2. Both Devin Hester and Harry Douglas would get a bump as well. Hester would become a more interesting flex play in deeper leagues while Dougles would check in at a low-end WR2/WR3 with upside.

  Bears | Marc Trestman likely to be fired    Tue Dec 16, 09:26 PM

The Chicago Bears are expected to fire head coach Marc Trestman, according to a source. The team's ownership met Tuesday, Dec. 16, after the team's Week 15 loss against the New Orleans Saints. It is uncertain if general manager Phil Emery, who hired Trestman, also will be shown the door.

Footballguys view: It's a sad way for things to end for Trestman. He's a bright coach, but he's limited by the play of his quarterback Jay Cutler. With Cutler signing a $126 million contract earlier in 2014, there's no way the team is going to trade him or let him go. We're hopeful that Trestman can catch on with a different team as an assistant coach.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray in good spirits    Tue Dec 16, 07:08 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand), who had his left hand heavily wrapped past his wrist Tuesday, Dec. 16, said he didn't have any pain after his surgery. "I'm good," Murray said. "I'm great." The team remains optimistic that Murray can play in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, but they won't know until later in the week. Murray will wear a protective glove on his left hand with extra padding on top regardless of if he plays Sunday, Dec. 21.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are just going to have to play the waiting game here. Murray could play...but he'll be limited...or he could miss the game entirely. The Cowboys will use Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar more if Murray is out. Have another option ready to go.

  Falcons | Jonathan Massaquoi must prove himself    Tue Dec 16, 07:00 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Jonathan Massaquoi (foot) still needs to show that he deserves to be on the field after returning from injury, according to head coach Mike Smith. 'I think Massaquoi will do that, at least I'm hopeful he will. He's got something to offer. Last year, I thought he was one of our most improved defensive players. He's just got to show up.'

  Panthers | Derek Anderson leans on Greg Olsen    Tue Dec 16, 06:39 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson had 15 passes of 10 or more yards in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and six of Anderson's passes of 10 or more yards went to TE Greg Olsen, who had 10 catches for 110 yards in the game. Anderson tends to lean more on Olsen as he holds the ball longer in the pocket and goes through his progressions. Olsen had eight catches for 83 yards in Week 1 when Anderson started.

Footballguys view: Hey, we give it up to Anderson for his performances while Cam Newton has been out. When Anderson starts, he forces the ball to both Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin...and that's not a bad thing.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen sees more snaps    Tue Dec 16, 06:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen played 53 of the team's 68 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, and TE Coby Fleener played in 40 of the snaps. It was necessary to have Allen on the field for much of the day in order to help block DE J.J. Watt. Allen also had a touchdown in the game.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can look to Allen as a low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 in Week 16.

  49ers | Chris Borland could be done for the year    Tue Dec 16, 05:55 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Chris Borland (ankle) may not play again this season, according to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. Fangio said Borland being able to play before the season ended 'would be a stretch right now.'

Footballguys view: Ouch. The rookie linebacker had been coming through in a big way for the 49ers defense. Borland always had a nose for the football in college at Wisconsin, but he proved as a rookie that he could cover in the pros as well.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray to be game-time decision?    Tue Dec 16, 05:42 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) will likely be a game-time decision against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said the team is still evaluating Murray's status for this weekend. "I think we just want to take a look at it. We don't know," Jones said. "I'm not so sure, when they say the definition of healing, how much can heal between now and Sunday."

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners will be on the edge of their seats until we get a decision. Have Murray at the ready, but make sure to have a backup plan in place. The Cowboys have a backup plan in case Murray can't play. RBs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will prepare for increased workloads if Murray can't play, and RB Ryan Williams could be activated off the practice squad.

  Broncos | Virgil Green continues to play    Tue Dec 16, 05:21 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green continued to lead the team's tight ends in snaps with 50 in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, even with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) back on the field. Thomas played just 29 snaps in his first game back from injury. OT Chris Clark also lined up as an extra tight end for seven snaps in the team's first two possessions. TE Dominique Jones played four snaps at tight end.

Footballguys view: Green leads the team in snaps at the TE position because he is a great blocker, and the Broncos are a run-heavy team.
