  Titans | Derrick Henry will have to be patient    Sat Dec 10, 09:32 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be ready when he has his chance to be the lead back, offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said, but head coach Mike Mularkey said he won't alter RB DeMarco Murray's workload just to appease Henry.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill ran for a career-high 168 yards against the Browns earlier this year, and he is one of six Bengals running backs to top 100 yards against the Browns since 1999.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley not creating big runs    Sat Dec 10, 07:43 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley has rushed for fewer than four yards on 23 of his last 28 carries over the last two games since exploding for 137 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries against Green Bay in Week 12.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims returning to team    Sat Dec 10, 12:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (knee) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: This is a move that has been expected for some time. With Doug Martin struggling to produce, the Bucs have talked about using Jacquizz Rodgers more. Don't forget about Sims...especially if you play in a PPR league. The Bucs don't have a ton of weapons on offense, and Sims can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield.

  Giants | Shane Vereen activated    Sat Dec 10, 12:43 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Vereen is expected to play on Sunday. His role will be quite limited. Not only because he's a backup to Rashad Jennings, but also becuase he's splitting that backup job with rookie Paul Perkins.

  Broncos | Justin Forsett familiar with offense    Sat Dec 10, 12:35 PM

Denver Broncos RB Justin Forsett said he knows about 99% of the Broncos' offense because it is the same offense head coach Gary Kubiak used when they were both with the Baltimore Ravens in 2014. Kubiak expects Forsett to make an immediate impact for the team.

Footballguys view: We've got Forsett as a 'what the heck' flex this week against the Titans. Watch to see if his role could grow in what Kubiak has basically described as a 'hot hand' approach going forward. Forsett's potential impact could damage the already disappointing fantasy stock in Devontae Booker.

Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad RB Bronson Hill was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Dec. 10, according to a source.

  Giants | Shane Vereen expected to play Sunday    Sat Dec 10, 10:43 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will be activated from injured reserve Saturday, Dec. 10, and is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the team's plans.

Footballguys view: Vereen is back in action, but he'll be splitting time behind Rashad Jennings with rookie Paul Perkins. We don't see that role being large enough to be fantasy relevant.

  Saints | New Orleans utilizing John Kuhn    Sat Dec 10, 01:16 AM

New Orleans Saints FB John Kuhn has scored five total touchdowns this season, and head coach Sean Payton said he will continue to take advantage of Kuhn's versatility.

Footballguys view: He's a touchdown vulture and enemy of fantasy owners playing Mark Ingram or Tim Hightower each week.

  Bears | Jordan Howard's style impressing    Sat Dec 10, 12:30 AM

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was praised for his quick feet and vision by offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, and DE Akiem Hicks said Howard is always falling forward on his runs.

Footballguys view: There was buzz about some NFL scouts considering Howard the most natural runner (not best running back) in this draft class. He has a no-nonsense style and can grind down an opponent with his power.

  Seahawks | Friday injury report for Seattle    Fri Dec 9, 10:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder), LB Brock Coyle (foot), FB Will Tukuafu (concussion) and DE Damontre Moore (foot) did not practice Friday, Dec. 9, and have been ruled out for Week 14. DE Michael Bennett (knee) and CB Richard Sherman (non-injury) did not practice and are not listed on the injury report. LB Mike Morgan (hip) was a limited participant and is listed as questionable.

  Saints | Mark Ingram back at practice    Fri Dec 9, 09:33 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was a limited participant at practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Footballguys view: It's tough to trust Ingram with multiple injuries, but there's a line to start him as opposed to benching him in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. We've got Ingram as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues. Tim Hightower, with Ingram likely to play, has to be considered a RB3 in those same leagues.

  Saints | Friday injury report for New Orleans    Fri Dec 9, 09:23 PM

New Orleans Saints C Max Unger (foot), LB Craig Robertson (shoulder) and SS Shiloh Keo (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 9, and are listed as questionable for Week 14. OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps), RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) and OT Senio Kelemete (hip) were limited participants and are listed as questionable.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Yeldon should be the lead back on Sunday against the Vikings, although the matchup limits his upside. He's only a flex play and a better play in PPR leagues in Week 14.

  Jaguars | Limited practice for Chris Ivory    Fri Dec 9, 08:30 PM

  Lions | Theo Riddick questionable    Fri Dec 9, 07:21 PM

Detroit Lions LB Theo Riddick (wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Riddick is a high floor/low ceiling PPR option against the Bears this week. He has been on the injury report a lot this year, so his status shouldn't affect your decision on whether to start him.

  Rams | Friday injury report for Rams    Fri Dec 9, 06:55 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Benny Cunningham (back) is listed as doubtful for Week 14. CB E.J. Gaines (thigh) and DE Robert Quinn (concussion) are listed as questionable. Cunningham and Gaines did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 9. Quinn fully participated in practice. OT Rodger Saffold (hand) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Cunningham's likely absence helps the case to start Todd Gurley even though he has been letting us because Gurley should get more passing down work and opportunity for receptions.

  Colts | Another full practice for Frank Gore    Fri Dec 9, 04:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 9.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart logs full practice    Fri Dec 9, 04:02 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) was a full participant at practice for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 9.

Footballguys view: Stewart's range of outcomes is very touchdown dependent and Cam Newton has not been leading many touchdown drives lately. He's a low ceiling RB2.

  Jaguars | Chris Ivory questionable    Fri Dec 9, 11:36 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is questionable for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Ivory will split the work with TJ Yeldon if he can go on Sunday, but it is against a tough Minnesota defense, so both are merely desperation plays. Yeldon becomes flex material if Ivory can't go.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews questionable    Fri Dec 9, 11:05 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is questionable for Week 14.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray tops 100 yards    Fri Dec 9, 12:25 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray ran 22 times for 103 yards and a touchdown in a 21-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Murray was the one good thing about the Raiders offense on Thursday night. He could play a more consistently large role with Derek Carr struggling. Consider him a strong RB2 at San Diego next week.

  Saints | Limited practice for Mark Ingram    Thu Dec 8, 09:50 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Ingram's carries have been all over the place the last few weeks, but when they give him the rock a lot he performs. The Bucs allow an average of 116.1 yards per game this season but have been a lot better of late and have not been allowing a ton of 100 yard rushers. Ingram might find the going rough, making him a RB3 bet and no more.

  Texans | Lamar Miller limited at practice    Thu Dec 8, 09:17 PM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: The injury and an overall poor offense means Miller could have some tough road to run this weekend. The Colts are a bad defense, but they might stack the box and make Brock Osweiler beat them in the air, something he struggles with. Miller is a borderline RB2/RB3 this week. It's a great matchup in theory, but the ribs and the offense dampen the upside.
