|DeMarco Murray ruled out for Wildcard Weekend|
Titans RB missed practice Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 4 2018, 12:45 pm
|DeMarco Murray (knee) ruled out Saturday vs KC. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Murray missed practice on Thursday with a sprained knee and wasn't expected to play despite the Titans holding out hope earlier in the week. As he did in Week 17, Derrick Henry will carry the running back load for the Titans against the Chiefs. The Chiefs gave up the 9th fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.
|Marqise Lee unlikely to practice today|
Wideout dealing with ankle injury
By: Jake Gordon | Jan 3 2018, 11:40 am
|The Jaguars don't expect Marqise Lee (ankle) to practice Wednesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Lee hasn't taken part in any practice sessions since injuring his right ankle in the Week 15 win over the Texans.
FFToday's Take: The Jags have been banged up at the receiver position throughout the season so this is nothing new. Having missed last week's game and unlikely to practice today, Marqise Lee's status is very shaky this week, likely a game-time decision. Keelan Cole and Allen Hurns represent the best fantasy options in the event Lee is unable to play against Buffalo this weekend.
|Jay Ajayi misses practice Wednesday|
No injury being reported
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 3 2018, 11:00 am
|The Philadelphia Eagles will not take any chances with Jay Ajayi this week, as head coach Doug Pederson said the No. 1 running back will sit out of practice Wednesday. The Eagles will give Ajayi more rest this week, especially with a full-padded practice on the way. Pederson insists Ajayi doesn't have an injury. "(He's dealing with) nothing," Pederson said. "As you know with his history he's had the knee. Just rest on that knee is all."
FFToday's Take: Jay Ajayi's rest is precautionary at this point. He should be ready as Philly's lead back when the team begins its post season play in the Divisional Round. His fantasy value, however, remains limited. The former Dolphin has only one rushing touchdown on the season and will continue split time with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement.
|Seattle begins search for new kicker|
Jason Myers to visit with Seahawks
By: Jake Gordon | Jan 3 2018, 10:20 am
|According to a source, the Seahawks are getting visits this week from both a kicker and a punter with NFL experience who are currently street free agents, meaning they were not on a roster when the 2017 season and can be signed now (players who are unrestricted free agents but on rosters when the season ended cannot be signed until the new league year begins on March 14).
The kicker is Jason Myers, who spent all of the 2015 and 2016 seasons with Jacksonville and the first six games of this year before released following three misses that proved critical in two losses (though all from 52 yards or longer).
FFToday's Take: Seattle brought in Blair Walsh after Steven Hauschka left following 2016 season. Walsh made only 21 of the 27 field goals he attempted during the 2017 campaign and is not expected to be back when his contract expires after the season. Jason Myers was unable to hold onto his job due to accuracy issues but his leg strength remains appealing to NFL teams.
|Bills giving McCoy another day off Wednesday|
Day-to-day with ankle injury
By: Jake Gordon | Jan 3 2018, 10:09 am
|The status of LeSean McCoy remains up in the air heading into Sunday's tilt versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that the running back is "day-to-day" with a sprained ankle suffered in Sunday's victory. McCoy will not practice Wednesday.
McCoy, the centerpiece of the Bills' offense, will receive treatment throughout the week, but will not be fully healthy even if he's able to get on the field Sunday.
FFToday's Take: This lines up with what was said yesterday. LeSean McCoy is expected to be a game-time decision this weekend and will not be at full health even if he does play. This will certainly limit his effectiveness. Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy will be in the mix for carries as well making the Bills backfield one to avoid for fantasy purposes.
|Elway committed to improving at quarterback|
Denver making changes after offense flounders in 2017
By: Jake Gordon | Jan 3 2018, 9:38 am
|The Denver Broncos laid the failure in 2017 at the feet of the quarterback. After watching Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, and Paxton Lynch flounder all season, GM John Elway stated the obvious on Tuesday: Denver's "No. 1 goal" is to upgrade the QB spot this offseason. "I think there is no doubt we've got to get better at that position," Elway said, via the team's official website. "For us to have a chance to get better, we've got to get better at that position." (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Denver will be among the numerous teams entering the offseason with plans on adding a quarterback after the team posted a 76.0 QB-rating (31st in the NFL) and threw the most interceptions in the league. Denver's roster is in more of a "win now" phase so look for them to be active in free agency starting with Kirk Cousins (if he is not given franchise tag).
|Carson Palmer announces his retirement|
14 seasons in the NFL
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 2 2018, 5:00 pm
|Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday in an open letter after 14 seasons with three teams. Palmer, 38, who was drafted first overall in 2003, said he felt the time was right to walk away from football. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Palmer broke his arm in Week 7 and never played again. The retirement of head coach Bruce Arians likely made Palmer's decision an easy one. Playing for the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals Palmer compiled a 62.5 completion percentage and ranks 12th in passing yards (46,247). With Arians and Palmer out, you have to wonder if Larry Fitzgerald will follow suit and decided to call it a career.
|No practice for DeMarco Murray on Tuesday|
Mularkey not ruling him out
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 2 2018, 2:00 pm
|.@DeMarcoMurray did not practice today for @Titans. Mularkey not ruling him out for @Chiefs (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray missed Week 17 with a knee injury which is reportedly a torn MCL. If so, it's difficult to imagine him suiting up against the Chiefs on Saturday. Expect Derrick Henry to receive the bulk of the running back carries this weekend.
|Tomlin: Antonio Brown rehab "going well"|
Would be considered questionable for this week
By: Mike Krueger | Jan 2 2018, 1:00 pm
|Mike Tomlin said he saw Antonio Brown today and said his progress is "going well." Said if Steelers were playing this week he would be questionable. (Gerry Dulac on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Steelers have a bye giving Brown another week to rehab his calf injury. Consider him questionable for the Divisional round of the playoffs.
|LeSean McCoy has a "chance" to play in WC game|
Suffered ankle injury in Week 17 and did not return
By: Doug Orth | Jan 1 2018, 7:15 pm
|Bills coach Sean McDermott said Monday that RB LeSean McCoy has a "chance" to play Sunday in the playoffs against the Jaguars. McDermott said he received "good news" that McCoy's X-rays were negative but would not confirm McCoy sprained his ankle. (ESPN - Mike Rodak)|
FFToday's Take: Based on the fact he was carted off, he seems doubtful to play against the Jaguars. Marcus Murphy and Mike Tolbert shared carries after McCoy's departure, but neither player brings to the table what McCoy does. With McCoy unlikely to play, the Jacksonville D/ST will be the top play among fantasy defenses in playoff leagues and DFS formats this weekend.
|Kyle Rudolph fighting through sore ankle|
Played on sprained ankle final three weeks of season
By: Doug Orth | Jan 1 2018, 7:05 pm
|Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has played three games on a sprained right ankle. He’s finally about to get some extra rest. Rudolph was in a walking boot after playing just 28 snaps in Minnesota’s 23-10 victory over Chicago at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings earned a first-round playoff bye as the NFC’s No. 2 seed, and he expects to feel a lot better when they next play Jan. 14 on their home field. (St. Paul Pioneer Press)|
FFToday's Take: The Vikings' first-round bye comes at a good time, and it's obvious the ankle was a major factor in his slow finish as he played only 56 snaps combined in Week 16 and 17. If the week off allows him to move closer to 100 percent, he should resume being Minnesota's top option in the red zone. With Minnesota among the favorites to make the Super Bowl, he should be among the more popular tight ends in non-DFS playoff leagues.
|Cameron Meredith expects to be ready for camp|
Recovering from ACL, MCL injuries
By: Doug Orth | Jan 1 2018, 7:00 pm
|Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith (knee) tells us he expects to be ready for the start of training camp. Not sure yet if he’ll be able to participate in the offseason program. (ESPN - Jeff Dickerson)|
FFToday's Take: What little chance the Bears' quarterbacks had this season fell by the wayside about the same time Meredith suffered ACL and MCL injuries on a gruesome injury in the third preseason game. Even though the Bears should be considered a strong candidate to add a first-round receiver such as Alabama's Calvin Ridley with their first pick, Meredith should return as the team's top wideout in 2018 regardless of whom Chicago hires to run the offense.
|Hogan, White expected to sit for Patriots|
Patriots playing to win, but will rest injured players
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 31 2017, 8:10 am
|The #Patriots are playing to win today, but they'll rest players who are borderline with injuries. That includes WR Chris Hogan (shoulder), source said. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Adam Schefter is also reporting that James White is expected to sit meaning we should see a lot of Dion Lewis out of the backfield. Top receiving options for Brady include Brandin Cooks, Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola.
|Joe Mixon expected to be active|
Will test anke in pre-game warmup
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 31 2017, 8:00 am
|#Bengals RB Joe Mixon wants to test his ankle in pre-game today, but the team does expect him to be active against the #Ravens, source said. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Mixon has been limited in practice this week but should be back on the field in Week 17. His return knocks Giovani Bernard down the fantasy rankings making both risky fantasy plays on the road against the Ravens.
|Melvin Gordon expected to play|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2017, 11:00 pm
|Chargers' RB Melvin Gordon, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs Raiders due to ankle injury, will play, per league source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Gordon is dealing with a sprained ankle and how much he will play or how effective he will be remains a big question mark. The Chargers called up RB Russell Hansbrough from the practice squad. Branden Oliver will backup Gordon. It will be difficult to trust and the Chargers RBs in Week 17.
|Charcandrick West downgraded to Out|
Chiefs running back situation unlear
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2017, 3:30 pm
|Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has been downgraded to OUT for Sunday’s game vs. Broncos with an illness. (BJ Kissel on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: West was expected to see the majority of carries in a meaningless finale for the Chiefs but he missed practice all week with an illness. Akeem Hunt (shoulder) could see increased reps at running back if the Chiefs elect to sit Kareem Hunt. This is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid until we get some clarity.
|Matt Forte lands on IR|
Jets activate WR Lucky Whitehead
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2017, 3:10 pm
|The Jets have placed running backs Matt Forté (knee) and Akeem Judd (ankle) on Injured Reserve and activated RB Jahad Thomas and WR Lucky Whitehead from the practice squad. The Jets also added WR Dan Williams to the practice squad.
Forté has battled a knee injury for the majority of the season, causing him to miss three games. The 10th-year vet totaled 381 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 103 carries. He also added 37 receptions for 293 yards and one score. (NewYorkJets.com)|
FFToday's Take: Forte hasn't had much practice time over the last couple weeks but has be active on game day. His absence should mean Bilal Powell will see the majority of touches in the season finale against the Patriots. New England represents a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs and Powell saw 25 touches last week.
|Cole Beasley out with illness|
More opportunities for Ryan Switzer
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 30 2017, 3:00 pm
|Cole Beasley has been downgraded to OUT with the illness that held him out this week. He’s not traveling with the Cowboys to Philadelphia (David Helman on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Beasley out, rookie Ryan Switzer should see some snaps in the slot. However, the Cowboys passing game has been an afterthought for fantasy owners with Dak Prescott managing just 5 TDs passes in his last seven games.
|DeMarco Murray out for Week 17|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2017, 1:00 pm
|@DeMarcoMurray has been ruled out for Sunday for @Titans (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray suffered a knee injury last week and the Titans were hoping he could play in the finale even though it seemed like a long shot. With Murray out, Derrick Henry should be in a featured role against the Jaguars. Jacksonville represents a neutral matchup for fantasy running backs making Henry a decent option in a week with very few secure options at the position.
|Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson out for Packers|
Williams and Mayes to handle running back duties
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2017, 11:40 am
|The Packers will take the field Sunday without wide receivers Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder), right guard Jahri Evans (knee), running back Aaron Jones (knee), outside linebacker Nick Perry (ankle/shoulder) and tight end Richard Rodgers (shoulder). (Green Bay Press Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: Without Adams and Nelson, we can expect Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison (illness), Michael Clark, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis to be the active wide receivers for the Packers. Cobb would appear to have the most fantasy value of the bunch. At running back, expect Jamaal Williams to get the majority of snaps with Devante Mays getting some work as well.
|Engram, Shepard, King out for Giants|
G-Men down to bare bones at receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 29 2017, 11:30 am
|No Russell Shepard, no Evan Engram, no Tavarres King on Sunday. Giants top receivers Sunday: Roger Lewis, Travis Rudolph, Hunter Sharp and Rhett Ellison. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Giants are down to bare bones at receiver against the Redskins this week. It will be tough to get excited about the fantasy prospects of any the remaining receivers. Roger Lewis and TE Rhett Ellison are worth fliers if you're desperate.
|Rams unlikely to play top WRs much in finale|
Woods, Watkins and Kupp all expected to be limited
By: Doug Orth | Dec 28 2017, 11:55 pm
|Probably not a good idea to start Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods or Cooper Kupp this week. Rams coach Sean McVay said they probably won't play much. (ESPN - Alden Gonzalez)|
FFToday's Take: The Rams aren't planning on playing Todd Gurley or Jared Goff at all, meaning owners still playing in Week 17 need to get familiar with players such as Sean Mannion, Malcolm Brown, Tavon Austin, Josh Reynolds and Pharoh Cooper. It's hard to buy into any of them - outside of maybe Reynolds - as a realistic option in fantasy this weekend.
|Melvin Gordon limited in practice Thursday|
Remains optimistic for Week 17
By: Doug Orth | Dec 28 2017, 5:55 pm
|Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said that Melvin Gordon (ankle) participated in walk-through this morning but will not practice on Thursday. (ESPN - Eric D. Williams)|
FFToday's Take: Gordon topped 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career last week before getting hurt, and he probably would like nothing more than to make a statement about his durability to his critics in a must-win game for the Chargers. With a number of top backs sitting out in Week 17, Gordon - even at far less than 100 percent - is bordering on a top-five play this weekend.
|Big Ben, Le'Veon Bell expected to sit Week 17|
Landry Jones, RBBC expected to rule the day vs. Browns
By: Doug Orth | Dec 28 2017, 5:45 pm
|Marcus Gilbert told reporters the Steelers won't play Ben Roethlisberger or Le'Veon Bell in finale vs. Cleveland. (Pittsburgh Tribune - Joe Rutter)|
FFToday's Take: Since the Patriots seem unlikely to lose to the Jets and the Steelers can't fall below the No. 2 seed, Pittsburgh is making sure its main offensive assets will enter the divisional round healthy. Landry Jones makes for an uninspiring fantasy QB2 option this week, while Fitzgerald Toussaint and Stevan Ridley figure to share carries in place of Bell. In other words, don't look to Pittsburgh for much fantasy value in Week 17.
|DeAndre Hopkins expected to sit|
Hopkins dealing with calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 28 2017, 1:45 pm
|Texans Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins not practicing and is expected to miss his first career game Sunday due to a calf injury. Having a first team All-Pro caliber year with NFL high 13 touchdown catches. Has played in 79 consecutive games. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Even with a 79 consecutive games played streak, the Texans are wise to sit out their star receiver if he is indeed hobbled. Hopkins made the most out his season despite a revolving door at QB to finish with a 96-1378-13 line. He'll be a top 5 pick at his position in drafts next summer.
|Charcandrick West misses practice Thursday|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 28 2017, 1:30 pm
|Kenny Acker, Rock Nunez-Roches and Charcandrick West are sick and not present today (Terez Paylor on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: West could see a big role this week if Andy Reid decides to hold out Kareem Hunt of the regular season finale. Players very rarely miss a game due to illness so it's likely we'll see West on the field this week against the Chargers.
|Sterling Shepard misses practice Thursday|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 28 2017, 11:50 am
|No WRs Sterling Shepard and Tavarres King, JPP and TE Evan Engram practicing. Also no Eli Apple (suspended). (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Shepard is battling a neck injury. He also missed practice Wednesday. Roger Lewis saw 11 targets last week against the Cardinals.
|Gurley, Goff out for Week 17|
Rams resting key starters in regular season finale
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2017, 4:42 pm
|Goff, Gurley, Donald, Whitworth and Sullivan among players who will not play Sunday, McVay said. (Gary Klein on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We kind of expected this after McVay hinted earlier in the day that offensive players may rest in the finale. Sean Mannion is likely to start at quarterback and Malcolm Brown could be in for a big role at running back. Cooper Kupp missed practice on Wednesday with a knee injury and could be held out of this game as well.
|Patrick Mahomes to start for KC|
Chiefs will go with rookie QB in Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 27 2017, 12:45 pm
|Patrick Mahomes will indeed start at quarterback for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: With the Chiefs locked into the No.4 seed in the AFC, many of the starters including Alex Smith will get some rest in Week 17. Head coach Andy Reid didn't specifically name players but it's likely Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and other frontline players won't see their normal workload. The matchup isn't ideal but Mahomes is an intriguing option on Draftkings ($4700) and Fanduel ($6000).
|TE Evan Engram has bruised ribs|
Sterling Shepard status remains uncertain
By: Jake Gordon | Dec 27 2017, 10:30 am
|Engram was diagnosed with bruised ribs on his left side after X-rays earlier this week returned negative, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Giants finished Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Cardinals without their top two pass catchers, as both Engram and Sterling Shepard (neck). The severity of Shepard's injury remains uncertain, but Engram was fortunate to avoid cracked ribs, which would have almost certainly sidelined him for the season finale against the Redskins
FFToday's Take: Evan Engram has had a nice rookie year already with 64 receptions for 722 yards and 6 touchdowns. Although his rib injury is less severe than originally thought, the team may decide to keep him out of the season finale so check back later in the week for an update. Shepard's season appears to be over following a neck injury sustained last weekend. Engram and Shepard appear to be two of the bright spots on an offense that might see several changes this offseason.
|Kirk cousins comments on future|
I want 'to be associated with winning'
By: Jake Gordon | Dec 27 2017, 10:16 am
|ASHBURN, Va. -- His desire has long been known. During the 2016 training camp, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said he wanted the organization to become like the NBA's San Antonio Spurs, a team known for winning and no drama. After beating the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Cousins reiterated his stance. "I want this brand, this organization, to be associated with winning and when people around the league and our fans that support this league think about this organization, I want them to think of winners," Cousins said. (ESPN.com)|
FFToday's Take: Kirk Cousins is about to cap off his third straight season as a top ten fantasy quarterback. He will be a focal point in the offseason where he could receive the franchise tag for the third time. If he is not franchised, his new team would certainly need to pony up both dollars and a clear shot at providing Cousins with a shot at a championship.
|Rams could rest some starters in Week 17|
McVay hints at Week 17 approach
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 26 2017, 8:00 pm
|McVay on the Rams approach this week: “It is one of those deals where I think you might see us rest some guys and use this week... knowing that you do have a home playoff game, regardless of how things play out, this might provide an opportunity to get some guys healthy.” (Joe Curley on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: McVay hinted that if offensive lineman Whitworth and Sullivan were to miss that perhaps Jared Goff and Todd Gurley could be rested too. With the Rams locked into a home playoff game, it's likely Goff and Gurley won't play much if at all against the 49ers.
|Chris Carson ruled out this week|
Leg injury, will not practice this week
By: Jake Gordon | Dec 26 2017, 2:30 pm
|Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Carson (ankle/leg) won't practice this week and isn't in line to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. (CBSSports.com)|
FFToday's Take: Chris Carson shot onto the fantasy scene back in Week 2 and looked like a quality RB2 before hitting the IR a couple weeks later. He won't help this week but the Seahawks haven't ruled out a return during the postseason. Assuming he can put his current injury behind him, he should take on a larger role in 2018.
|Broncos expected to start Paxton Lynch|
QB recovering from ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 26 2017, 1:00 pm
|Sunday against the Chiefs, the Broncos expect to have Paxton Lynch under center to give the second-year quarterback another shot to prove himself before the year expires and the Broncos’ focus turns completely toward rebuilding. (Denver Post)|
FFToday's Take: Lynch has been recovering from a sprained ankle but "wasn't quite ready" last week. Unless there is a setback, it appears Lynch will start in Week 17. Lynch struggled in his Week 12 game against the Raiders before leaving due to injury. He won't be a viable QB option against the Chiefs this week.
|Melvin Gordon questionable for Week 17|
By: Doug Orth | Dec 25 2017, 8:15 pm
|Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said RB Melvin Gordon's left foot is in a boot after suffering an ankle injury late in the game against the New York Jets. Lynn said Gordon could be a game-time decision on Sunday in the team's regular-season finale against the Oakland Raiders. "He's seeing the doctors tomorrow [Tuesday], and we'll know more about Melvin as we get going here," Lynn said. "Ankles can be kind of tricky. We can keep him out all week, and he's had enough reps where he can go out and play. He knows what he's doing, and that's something that we'll look at. But he's another guy that's probably going to come down to the end of the week." (ESPN - Eric D. Williams)|
FFToday's Take: Gordon handled 22 touches in the Week 16 win over the New York Jets. After consecutive injury-shortened seasons to begin his career, the third-year back would probably like nothing more than to silence critics about his lack of durability and send his team to the postseason for the first time since 2013. If he cannot go, Branden Oliver would likely become the every-down back with Austin Ekeler also battling an injury. Oliver would be difficult to start outside the deepest of leagues.
|DeMarco Murray a long-shot for Week 17|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 25 2017, 8:00 am
|Based on the pain he was in last night, & the apparent LCL sprain, it’s considered a long-shot for #Titans RB DeMarco Murray to play Sunday (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Murray's sprained knee is likely to keep him out of a Week 17 matchup against the Jaguars. The Titans still have playoff hopes so we should see a heavy workload for Derrick Henry making him an easy RB2 value in the final week of the regular season.
|Perine is active|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 24 2017, 11:35 am
|Redskins inactives: WR Maurice Harris, S DeAngelo Hall, LB Ryan Anderson, LB Zach Brown, OL Kyle Kalis, C Demetrius Rhaney and RB Kenny Hilliard. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The excitement over Kapri Bibbs against his former team from the fantasy community will be squashed now that Samaje Perine is active. Bibbs will have a role but won't dominate the backfield touches unless Perine re-aggravates his injury.
|Michael Thomas is active|
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 24 2017, 11:30 am
|As expected, Saints’ WR Michael Thomas officially active today vs Falcons. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Thomas was added to the injury report Saturday with a hamstring injury. Fantasy owners should be concerned but it's unlikely you have better options than Thomas who's scored 20+ fantasy points the last two weeks.
|Samaje Perine a gametime decision|
Groin injury suffered in practice Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 24 2017, 7:30 am
|#Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) is considered a game-time decision to play today. Either way, expect a lot of RB Kapri Bibbs against his former team, the #Broncos. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Perine left Thursday's practice with a groin injury and missed Friday's session. Even if he plays he won't be much of a fantasy option given Rapoport's suggestion that Bibbs will be involved in the gameplan.
|Kerwynn Williams expected to play|
Limited practice on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Dec 24 2017, 7:10 am
|Cardinals’ RB Kerwynn Williams, questionable with a quad injury, is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Williams got in a limited practice Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday. He'll be a low-end Flex option against the Giants and de-value Elijhaa Penny.
