  Giants | Sterling Shepard limited Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 01:53 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: A weakened offensive line will make the passing offense even more shaky. That, along with the hamstring, could really impact his production. Right now we don't see him as more than a Hail Mary flex play.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson remains sidelined    Thu Dec 14, 01:39 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Looks like another week where Peterson will not be available, but Kerwynn Williams is not a great option in his place. He is a decent RB3/Flex option but that's about it.

  Lions | Detroit makes two roster moves    Thu Dec 14, 01:26 PM

Free-agent S Rolan Milligan (Lions) was re-signed to the Detroit Lions' practice squad Thursday, Dec. 14. CB Adairius Barnes was released from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph misses practice    Thu Dec 14, 01:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Rudolph has scored touchdowns two weeks in a row, so going to Cincinnati, which is a team on the ropes. We like him as a solid TE1 this week in a game Minnesota not only should win, but has to.

  Jaguars | Leonard Fournette idle Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 12:44 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: While Fournette is a top RB1 start, this is a bit concerning. On the one hand, teams often pick Thursday as an extra day off but on the other, Fournette was out Wednesday as well. Friday will be critical in determining whether he will play -- and how effective he will be. Right now, we have him rated as a solid RB1 but that could change if Friday is another day off for Fournette.

  Falcons | Tevin Coleman still in the protocol    Thu Dec 14, 12:43 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Thursday, Dec. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: If he doesn't practice Friday, Coleman is unlikely to play. In reality, as he's still in the protocol, it's hard to feel confident he will be active on Sunday. If he is though, we think he will be a decent RB3 or flex option.

  Giants | Justin Pugh to IR    Thu Dec 14, 12:22 PM

New York Giants OT Justin Pugh (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 14, but he will not require surgery.

Footballguys view: An already bad offensive line gets worse. This isn't going to make Eli Manning or the offense any more effective against a tough Philadelphia defense.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon back at practice    Thu Dec 14, 11:58 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is practicing Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: It would be great for fantasy owners if Mixon comes back this weekend, but the matchup is rough. The Vikings have a tremendous run defense and the Bengals front line is one of the worst in the NFL. Mixon should produce something this weekend if he plays, but high end RB3/low end RB2 is what we're expecting.

  Bills | Nathan Peterman participating    Thu Dec 14, 11:57 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Nathan Peterman (concussion) is practicing Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Peterman has looked a little better since that Week 11, five pick debacle against the Chargers, but we wouldn't trust him in a lineup, especially for leagues in their playoffs.

Nathan Peterman player page


  Bills | Tyrod Taylor practicing    Thu Dec 14, 11:54 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is practicing Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: We're a little concerned that if he does play, the knee will limit his mobility which is his biggest selling point for fantasy. We wouldn't trot him out this week if we could avoid it, and would be leery of doing so next week if he's healthy.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara good to go    Thu Dec 14, 10:00 AM

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) will play in Week 15, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Against a Jets team which, let's be honest, we're never sure how they will look, we love Kamara. Consider him a solid RB1 in all formats this week and as long as he's healthy, he has to be in your lineups the rest of the way.

  Patriots | Kenny Britt terms    Thu Dec 14, 09:35 AM

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt's deal is for one year with a team option for 2018. He'll earn a prorated portion of the veteran minimum of $900,000 this year and $1.5 million next year with a chance at $2 million with incentives.

Footballguys view: Nobody expects much from Britt this week, though would anyone be shocked if the Mad Scientist Bill Belichick managed to get a lot of production from him where nobody has before? Avoid him this week but keep an eye on him going forward.

  Seahawks | Chris Carson running again    Thu Dec 14, 01:50 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) has resumed running, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who hopes Carson can return to practice next week.

Footballguys view: There had been talk of a setback, but it seems as if Carson still has a shot to go this year. By the time he does, though, fantasy leagues will be done, though a play in daily fantasy could be warranted. Keep an eye on this.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant expected back Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 01:37 AM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a personal/family situation and will be back with the club on Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Bryant was pretty bad and clearly not on the same page as Ben Roethlisberger against Baltimore. With JuJu Smith-Schuster back from suspension, he is likely to see his targets slip down again. Start him as no more than a WR6.

  Eagles | Brent Celek doesn't practice    Thu Dec 14, 01:30 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13. His absence was not injury related.

Footballguys view: He'll likely play since this isn't injury related but he's still well behind Zach Ertz, who is a TE1 start this week.

  Jets | Josh McCown has surgery    Thu Dec 14, 12:52 AM

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) underwent surgery to repair his broken left hand on Tuesday, Dec. 12, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Bryce Petty is 'the guy' for the Jets from here until a mysterious injury puts Christian Hackenberg under center. Or, assuming Todd Bowles is telling the truth, Petty is just playing out the rest of the year and we won't see Hackenberg who clearly hasn't earned the chance to play. Which tells you all you need to know about the Jets quarterbacks.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers moving up all-time list    Wed Dec 13, 10:55 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers passed retired QB Warren Moon for ninth on the NFL's all-time passing yards list. He has now thrown for 49,444 yards after his performance in the team's Week 14 win Sunday, Dec. 10, opposite the Washington Redskins.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd getting more snaps    Wed Dec 13, 10:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd played in 30 snaps in the team's most recent game in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Chicago Bears, twice the amount he logged in each of the previous two weeks.

  Rams | Robert Woods says he's playing Sunday    Wed Dec 13, 08:44 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) said that he's playing in the team's Week 15 game Sunday, Dec. 17, versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Woods is back this week and it's a good sign for QB Jared Goff. We like Woods as a WR3 or flex option just in case he has to shake off some rust in front of the 12th man in Seattle.

  Jets | Jahad Thomas added to practice squad    Wed Dec 13, 08:38 PM

The New York Jets signed RB Jahad Thomas to their practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 13.

The Green Bay Packers signed WR Colby Pearson to their practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 13.


  Jets | Jeremy Kerley placed on roster exemption list    Wed Dec 13, 08:34 PM

New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley was placed on the roster exemption list Wednesday, Dec. 13. He's coming off his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, and the team can keep him on the list until Monday, Dec. 18, at 4 p.m. EST. Head coach Todd Bowles said they are still discussing what to do with Kerley.

  Cardinals | Carlton Agudosi added to practice squad    Wed Dec 13, 08:32 PM

The Arizona Cardinals signed WR Carlton Agudosi to their practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Agudosi is a big prospect (6'6" tall) with a large wingspan and the ability to box out smaller defenders. He's bounced on and off the Cardinals roster since coming out of Rutgers as an undrafted free agent. We're monitoring his pro career, but only in super deep dynasty leagues.


  Browns | Matt Hazel joins Cleveland    Wed Dec 13, 08:27 PM

The Cleveland Browns signed WR Matt Hazel off the Indianapolis Colts practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 13. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham listed as limited    Wed Dec 13, 07:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Graham did nothing last week for fantasy owners, but his skill set and his role on the offense have us plugging him back in as a TE1 in Week 15.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper unable to practice    Wed Dec 13, 07:39 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners just can't trust Cooper, especially in the fantasy playoffs. Even if he does play against the Cowboys we couldn't plug him in as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota takes part in practice    Wed Dec 13, 07:25 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Mariota just hasn't looked like himself as he deals with this nagging injury. Even against the 49ers in Week 15, Mariota should only be considered a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners.

  Texans | Braxton Miller doesn't practice    Wed Dec 13, 07:06 PM

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, as he remains in the concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Miller will have to practice if he wants to get cleared in the concussion protocol. Fantasy owners aren't trusting anyone other than DeAndre Hopkins from the Texans WR corps...especially with T.J. Yates at quarterback.

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) was on the sidelines for practice on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Hurns sprained his ankle and has not practiced since then. He's watching practice now, which sounds like something...but the reality is that Hurns continues to be week-to-week as he recovers. The Jaguars have turned to Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook as options opposite Marqise Lee.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13, due to a quadriceps injury.

Footballguys view: Fournette is getting a day of rest. He should practice fully later in the week. Fournette is the centerpiece of what the Jaguars want to do offensively and a RB1 for fantasy owners.
