  Redskins | Darrel Young punching it in    Sat Dec 20, 06:41 PM

Washington Redskins FB Darrel Young has two rushing touchdowns through three quarters Saturday, Dec. 20.

Footballguys view: Those who started Alfred Morris had a good night, but it would have been a great night had he--and not Young--had scored those two short-yardage touchdowns. Morris finished with 83 yards on the ground plus one rushing score.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray expected to play    Sat Dec 20, 03:21 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) reportedly plans on playing this week despite a broken bone in his hand.

Footballguys view: Incredible. Murray might be held out of passing downs so he won't have to pass protect with that banged up hand. He's likely to play, so fantasy owners have to start him.

  Broncos | Saturday injury report    Sat Dec 20, 03:15 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) and OT Paul Cornick (toe) are out for Week 16. RB Juwan Thompson (hip, knee), OT Ryan Clady (thigh), CB Kayvon Webster (shoulder) and RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) are questionable. C Will Montgomery (knee), TE Jacob Tamme (ribs), OT Chris Clark (back) and WR Cody Latimer (concussion) are probable.

Footballguys view: Hillman might play this week, but we think the Broncos hold him out one more week. The Bengals surface is artificial, and the team doesn't want to risk Hillman re-aggravating his injury.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson listed as probable    Sat Dec 20, 03:09 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, and is probable for Monday night's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Anderson was a full participant all week in practice. The Broncos are a run-heavy team now, and Anderson has been averaging over 27 carries per game over the last month. Expect him to put up RB1 numbers in Week 16.

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) is inactive Saturday, Dec. 20, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  49ers | Frank Gore questionable    Fri Dec 19, 05:34 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is questionable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: As long as Gore is cleared, he'll get the start and the bulk of the workload against the Chargers.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata should play    Fri Dec 19, 05:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: Asiata has been playing as the starter since Jerick McKinnon went on IR, and he has great flex appeal as the goal line back facing a suspect run defense this week.

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) and Shane Vereen (ankle) both were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and are questionable for Week 16 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Vereen was the lead back against the Jets stout front in the first matchup between these teams, scoring two touchdowns. He's the best play in the Patriots backfield in Week 16.

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and WR Keenan Allen (shoulder, ankle) have been ruled out for Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers.

LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DT Beau Allen (shoulder), DE Brandon Bair (knee), DT Bennie Logan (pectoral), FS Chris Maragos (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (ankle) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Footballguys view: Cole being out gives Brandon Graham a full time role just in time for IDP league finals. He has been very productive in limited duty and Washington is a terrific matchup for pass rushers.

  49ers | Frank Gore knows the end is near    Fri Dec 19, 01:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, knows that these next two games with the team are likely to be his last. "I've been here 10 years and it could be last two games here this year," Gore said. "It's weird knowing that I won't be under contract any more. But I've been in the league long enough to understand it's a business." Gore could post his eighth 1,000-yard season if he gains 196 yards in the final two games.

Footballguys view: Gore will try to go out with a bang. He has the backfield mostly to himself on Saturday with Carlos Hyde likely out. He's a boom/bust RB2 this week.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams won't play    Fri Dec 19, 12:51 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is questionable for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, but he will not play in the game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams could be an emergency back this week.

Footballguys view: Jonathan Stewart owners get one last week of a feature back workload, and in a great matchup to boot. Consider him a strong RB2 against the Browns defense that Jeremy Hill ran all over last week.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller probable for Week 16    Fri Dec 19, 12:47 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) has been added to the active roster and is probable for Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Spiller might not play a large role, so don't play him in any format, but it does take a little edge off of Fred Jackson's upside this week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings not practicing    Fri Dec 19, 12:31 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Friday, Dec. 19, and will not play in the team's Week 16 game.

Footballguys view: There's no sign that Jennings will play Sunday against the Rams after aggravating his ankle injury last week. Andre Williams will get the start, but he hasn't been very effective, and the Rams are a tough matchup in St. Louis.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray likely to play    Fri Dec 19, 10:49 AM

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) is likely to play in Week 16, according to a source. Murray has a high threshold for pain, and according to the source, the team left the decision up to Murray.

Footballguys view: Murray won't have pass-catching upside and might leave the field for passing downs to avoid pass protection duties, but his broken hand is his off hand and he can still get enough carries against the soft Colts run defense to make this work for folks who play him in their final. He's still a low RB1.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy's vision an issue    Fri Dec 19, 10:03 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (eye) said he wasn't able to read a teammate's nameplate a few feet away in the locker room Thursday, Dec. 18. Lacy said he won't wear goggles in Week 16, but he hopes to be able to put his contact lens in his irritated eye.

  49ers | Frank Gore on track to play?    Thu Dec 18, 06:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) continues through the concussion protocol this week, but head coach Jim Harbaugh anticipates Gore suiting up in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers Saturday, Dec. 20. Gore was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Gore should get most of the carries, but we have no clue whether he will put up good numbers or not give the inconsistency of his carries. At best he's an RB3, even though he could put more yards if he was used better. That's not the case though, so don't expect more than RB3 numbers.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson practices in full    Thu Dec 18, 06:30 PM

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman limited Thursday    Thu Dec 18, 06:21 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Hillman isn't all that much help for fantasy owners, and shouldn't be in lineups. C.J.Anderson is an RB1 and we don't expect him to give up enough work for Hillman to be relevant.

  Broncos | Thursday practice report    Thu Dec 18, 06:18 PM

Denver Broncos OT Paul Cornick (toe), LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) and RB Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata limited again    Thu Dec 18, 06:15 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) was limited for a second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: He will see a lot of work this week, and if he scores, could have a very good day. We like Asiata as a sneaky play in daily games, and consider him a low-end RB1 in PPR leagues.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings doesn't practice    Thu Dec 18, 06:07 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde doesn't practice    Thu Dec 18, 05:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Hyde to play or be much of a factor if he does. We'd avoid him this week, it's just too risky.

  Texans | Arian Foster limited Thursday    Thu Dec 18, 05:42 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after sitting out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Foster will get plenty of carries against the Ravens with Case Keenum throwing the ball, so we feel confident that he will put up some nice RB1 numbers this weekend.

  49ers | Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree limited    Thu Dec 18, 05:41 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) and WR Michael Crabtree (back) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: The San Francisco 49ers have had a long season, but they won't roll over and die for San Diego this week, and in fact will probably do fine offensively. Gore has not been consistent this season, so he is no more than an RB3 this week, since we never know what his workload will be.
