    NFL Player News - Week 14

    NE - TE Rob Gronkowski suspended for one game

    Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has been suspended one game for a hit on Buffalo Bills CB Tre'Davious White (concussion) last week. Gronkowski will appeal the suspension.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Gronkowski is lucky to get only one game here but he is appealing the suspension. If the suspension is upheld, Gronkowski will miss the first week of the fantasy playoffs in Week 14 against the Dolphins. Dwayne Allen would get the start without Gronk in the lineup, but he doesn't have the TE1 upside like his teammate.

    New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese was fired Monday, Dec. 4, according to a source.

    Reese got two Super Bowl rings with the Giants early in his time with the team as GM. Things have slowly decayed since then. The offensive line problems continue to plague this team, and there has been hits and misses on the defensive side of the ball through the draft and free agency.

    New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo was relieved of his duties Monday, Dec. 4.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The writing was on the wall for quite some time, even though ownership gave McAdoo the 'vote of confidence' about a month ago. It seems like the handling of Eli Manning and putting him on the bench did not sit well with the higher ups in the organization. Problems in the locker room and the team's record led to this decision, even though McAdoo had this team in the playoffs last year.

    The Broncos don't need to see more of Brock Osweiler and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch is recovering from a high ankle sprain he suffered in Week 13. Siemian had a bad day against the Dolphins on Sunday and might not be much better this week at home against the Jets.

    With Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese getting fired, the message was clear that benching Manning for Week 13 was a mistake. The team came under a lot of fire nationally after McAdoo's power move and now ownership has righted the ship. That being said, there's no telling whether or not Manning will stay with the Giants in 2018 and beyond. He's currently under contract through the 2019 season.

    The Packers just have to get through the next two games and then Rodgers could return in Week 15.

    Shazier reportedly suffered a spinal contusion on Monday night against the Bengals. It is good news considering how bad things looked on the field, and Shazier has reportedly regained some movement in his legs. Colbert said they are hopeful Shazier will be able to return to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

    Wednesday Update

    PIT - WR JuJu Smith-Schuster suspended one game

    Source: ESPN.com - Field Yates

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been suspended for Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens for his illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Monday night's game between the Steelers and the Bengals got out of hand, so the league is stepping in to squelch this sort of behavior. Smith-Schuster blasted Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict then stood over him and taunted him. The league is suspending the rookie WR for the hit and for the taunting. There will be an appeal, but the one-game ban may stand and that gives Martavis Bryant more fantasy value in Week 14 against the Ravens.

    The Saints have a short week as they play against the Falcons on Thursday night. Make sure Ingram gets at least a partial practice in on Wednesday.

    Matthews first (and likely only) year in Buffalo goes down as a huge disappointment. He's missed time and battled through a multitude of injuries, including knee, chest and thumb problems. A second-round pick in 2014, Matthews is headed for the open market this offseason. With a history of knee problems and coming off such a down year (25 catches, 282 yards, one touchdown), we can't imagine teams falling all over themselves to sign Matthews.

    The Chiefs lost to the Jets last week, but it wasn't due to Smith. He had 366 yards passing, four touchdowns and 70 yards rushing in Week 13.

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) did not practice for second straight day Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Things are not looking good for Ingram's availability on Thursday night against the Falcons. If Ingram can't play, Alvin Kamara could be the top fantasy RB in Week 14. Kamara is already a RB1 for fantasy owners and would just get a larger workload without Ingram. If we don't see Ingram on Thursday, there might be more snaps for guys like Jonathan Williams or Trey Edmunds.

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Benjamin is day-to-day with this knee injury. If he's limited on Wednesday, that's a good sign for his status in Week 14. The Bills are home against the Colts this week and could be without QB Tyrod Taylor (knee). Having Benjamin out there would greatly benefit rookie QB Nathan Peterman if he starts.

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Peterson doesn't look likely to play this week, so look to Kerwynn Williams this week. Williams was solid against the Rams last week, but faces a tough Tennessee secondary with little support from the pass game. He's no more than a RB5 flier this week whether Peterson plays or not.

    The Seahawks have been cautious and managed Graham's practices all year and he could even play Sunday without a practice before the game.

    We would like to see Patterson get in a full practice to have more sleeper appeal, but with Amari Cooper looking unlikely to play, Patterson should start against a Chiefs defense that is vulnerable to the pass and big plays.

    Even if he was healthy, Williams has been supplanted by Kenyan Drake. Drake faces a tough task, not so much because the Patriots are a great run defending team, as it is because New England plays from ahead a lot and so the Dolphins may have to throw the ball a ton, limiting Drake's potential. Drake is a great RB3 with RB2 upside.

    We're not sure what to expect from Martin this week, and will continue to monitor him on Friday.

    We're not confident Abdullah will be greenlit this weekend against Tampa Bay, which would make Theo Riddick the chief back, although he will split some carries with Tion Green.

    Absent since his huge Week 11, Matthews should be raring to go, which should help Marcus Mariota get out of the funk he's been in for two weeks.

    Hogan may not get in a full practice before Monday night, but if he's active, he's a good upside WR3/Flex. You could carry Danny Amendola or Kenny Stills as a hedge if they are not owned.

    Patterson would be the replacement for Amari Cooper if he can't go, although he might not be much healthier than Cooper right now.

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Shepard has been adequate to very good in PPR leagues as the #1 receiver for the Giants, and he has a good matchup against the Cowboys, but the hamstring issue adds a lot of risk to playing him as your WR3/Flex.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) is expected to rejoin the starting lineup in Week 14, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Peyton Barber had the best game of any Bucs running back this year, but apparently it wasn't enough to win the starting job. He's still a priority dynasty add and perhaps even someone to hold in redraft to see if he can get the job before the end of the season.

    TEN - TE Delanie Walker to play in Week 14

    Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Walker is too good to bench in a very weak week at tight end. It doesn't sound like you'll need to carry an injury hedge, which is a limited group because the Cardinals and Titans are playing a late afternoon start this week.

    Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Matthews will likely see a lot of Patrick Peterson in this one, and Marcus Mariota's play hasn't been confidence-building in fantasy leagues. Matthews is a low ceiling WR3/Flex at best this week.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Olsen could get a lot of targets if Xavier Rhodes blots out Devin Funchess, but the athletic and smart Vikings linebackers will likely limit his gains. As long as Olsen is active, he should be a worthy PPR play in a rough week at tight end.

    Sunday Morning Injury Updates

    QUARTERBACK

    Matthew Stafford | Hand | questionable | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Although Stafford plays through pain routinely, there was concern on Wednesday that his throwing hand was too bruised and swollen to handle quarterback duties. Stafford returned to practice on Thursday and Friday and observers noted no limitations as he threw. The Lions list him questionable -- as they often do when they see players as probable to play -- but there's no doubt Stafford will play. While there's some risk of an in-game aggravation should Stafford get hit, contact a helmet, or get stepped on again, he can be expected to perform well. His matchup also looks favorable. The Tampa Bay secondary will be without Vernon Hargreaves, T.J. Ward, and Josh Robinson.


    Tyrod Taylor
    | Knee | Questionable | Backup if Active


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    The Bills offered no clarity on Taylor's status after Friday's limited practice. He's considered a game-time decision but Sean McDermott told reporters it was possible Taylor would be active but not ready to start. Taylor suffered a bruise on his left patellar tendon on the first play of last week's game and fought through multiple additional hits to the area before finally calling it a day in the fourth quarter. And that's the rub again this week. This isn't a structural concern and there's little risk of catastrophic injury. However, despite a relatively anemic Indianapolis pass rush, it's impossible to expect Taylor to avoid taking any hits on the front of his plant leg. If Taylor plays, it's likely his mobility will be limited and it's possible he'll be unable to finish.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Though Taylor hasn't been ruled out, Adam Schefter reports Buffalo plans to start Peterman.


    Others of note: Tom Brady
    (Achilles), Cam Newton (shoulder), Dak Prescott (hand), Jameis Winston (ankle), and Blake Bortles (wrist) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Paxton Lynch (ankle) has been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    RUNNING BACK

    *Dion Lewis | Illness | Questionable | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Thurs - Not Listed | Fri - DNP | Sat - Limited

    Lewis returned to a limited Saturday practice and was -- as per the Patriot Way -- listed questionable on the game status report. Beat writer Doug Kyed reported Lewis is expected to play Monday night after a source told him Lewis was "100 percent." I'll update with any news of note through Sunday morning.


    Ameer Abdullah
    | Neck | Questionable | Unlikely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    I use a long list of resources to write this column each week. There are a handful of teams that are under-reported and difficult to find actionable information about each week. The Lions do not fall into the first category but they definitely fall into the second. A Twitter keyword search for all things Ameer Abdullah returned absolutely nothing this week. Not even a generic "listed as questionable" -- literally no mention of him at all. Last week, Abdullah told reporters his status was up to Jim Caldwell and the medical staff, essentially hinting he was going to be inactive. After a week of limited practice, I think there's a chance he plays this week. But neck injuries are tricky. He must show enough strength and range of motion to protect himself in a contact situation. Regardless of Abdullah's health, the Lions have made it clear they plan to lean more heavily on Theo Riddick now.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Ian Rapoport is reporting Abdullah is unlikely to play, though "it's more for play than injury reasons."


    Matt Forte
    | Knee | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - DNP

    Forte continues to play with a degenerative knee condition that swells and limits him intermittently. He's managed 29 and 35 snaps since taking three weeks off to rest his knee and felt good enough to get 18 touches last week. He continues to see 40-50% of the team's offensive snaps. The Friday DNP is a slightly different line than usual but the team's beat writers expect him to play. 12-15 touches remains a reasonable expectation.


    Orleans Darkwa
    | Illness | Questionable | Likely to play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Not Listed | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Darkwa returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing practice on Thursday with an illness. The Giants did not update his condition on Friday. Though listed questionable, I think he's more probable than doubtful.


    Others of note: Leonard Fournette
    (ankle), LeSean McCoy (knee), Christian McCaffrey (shoulder), Jonathan Stewart (foot), Bilal Powell (hamstring), Doug Martin (concussion), Kerwynn Williams (ribs), Travaris Cadet (concussion), Wayne Gallman (hip), and Mike Tolbert (hamstring) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Joe Mixon (concussion), Adrian Peterson (neck), Alfred Blue (concussion), and Damien Williams (shoulder) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    WIDE RECEIVER

    Antonio Brown | Toe | Not Listed | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Not Listed | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Full

    Brown was limited in practice with a toe injury last week, looked hobbled during warmups at times on Monday night, then had 101 receiving yards on 15 targets. The Steelers gave Brown Thursday off this week but he took every other practice repetition. Brown's usual ceiling expectation is in play again this week.


    Robert Woods
    | Shoulder | Questionable | LIkely Inactive


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    On Wednesday, Woods started his third consecutive week without practicing and Sean McVay told reporters there was no timetable for Woods' return. Woods again missed practice on Thursday before being cleared for individual drills on Friday. Though listed questionable, I don't expect to see Woods active. He hasn't yet been cleared for contact and there's little upside in risking an aggravation this week.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Both Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport tweeted Woods will not play but is expected back next week.


    Sterling Shepard
    | Hamstring | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Shepard missed practice on Wednesday but returned to consecutive practices at the end of the week. He said he felt good after going full speed in Thursday's individual drills and the followup Friday workout is reassuring. Hamstring injuries always carry a risk of aggravation for receivers but Shepard has missed minimal time since the injury last week and is likely to see his usual workload. Watch for any unexpected weekend reports of concern.

    ***Sunday AM Update: There's a line buried in the middle of an overnight NFL.com article stating Shepard was unlikely to play. It was picked up by Rotoworld this morning and caused a stir on Twitter. I've seen no reports from beat writers of concern and Shepard's midweek comments remain reassuring. There were no overnight reports on Shepard from Ian Rapoport or Adam Schefter. It's something to track but I think it's reasonable to expect Shepard active until a more definitive report.

    *Chris Hogan | Shoulder | Pending | Likely to Play

    Practice Participation: Thurs - Limited | Friday - Limited | Sat - Pending

    Hogan stopped short of guaranteeing his return on Thursday after his first practice in a month. But you could see he was excited to be back and his practice on Friday strongly suggests the Patriots are hopeful he'll be a part of Monday night's game plan. Like Golden Tate and Jameis Winston and many others with shoulder injuries this year, the Patriots held Hogan out until he was ready for contact to limit any risk of aggravation. Hogan's shoulder injury shouldn't have limited his conditioning and if he's cleared for contact he should be ready for his pre-injury workload.


    Robby Anderson
    | Hamstring | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    The reports on Anderson after Thursday's limited practice were odd. Some reports said he left practice and looked unlikely to play this week. Others said the injury was new -- after he'd already been listed on Wednesday report with a hamstring concern. Admittedly, it's possible Thursday's injury could have been different and compensatory and Anderson's demeanor might have suggested a significant strain. But Anderson was back to a full practice on Friday and is not listed on the game status report. Expect another full workload.


    Rishard Matthews
    | Hamstring | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Matthews was not quite ready to return last week. The Titans' decision to rest Matthews last Sunday looks to have paid off. Matthews did more on Wednesday this week and was then cleared to return to a full practice on Thursday. He's not listed on the game status report. An in-game aggravation cannot be ruled out, but Matthews has now had over a week of workouts and the risk is much less this week than last. He'll likely face off against Patrick Peterson, who missed time this week with a hamstring strain of his own.


    Kelvin Benjamin
    | Knee | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    After twisting his knee on the fourth snap of the game in Week 11, Benjamin needed two weeks of rest to calm down inflammation and pain from what's been reported as a meniscus tear. While he's likely to need offseason surgery, Benjamin returned to full practices this week and is going to play. Conditioning and aggravation are concerns -- as is the potential for Nathan Peterman returning to the huddle as the starting quarterback.


    Devin Funchess
    | Shoulder | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - DNP

    It's rare to see a player not practice on Friday after two mid-week full practices. The questionable tag is not helpful in Carolina. The Panthers routinely list players questionable if they've been on the injury report during the week. The tone of the local reports suggests Funchess will play through his sore shoulder, as he has through toe and other soft tissue injuries this year. I'll update with any weekend news.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Funchess is expected to play.


    Jeremy Maclin
    | Back | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Full

    Maclin fully practiced on Friday and is expected to play. However, the back injury has flared up on him multiple times this year and he's continued to take painful hits to the area recently. Despite the full Friday practice, we've seen Maclin inactive unexpectedly on Sunday morning. Watch pregame reports and don't assume he's playing without confirmation he's active.


    Amari Cooper
    | Ankle | Questionable | Limited if Active


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    ESPN's Dan Graziano reported the Oakland coaching staff met on Friday assuming Cooper would be inactive after showing slow improvement in rehab sessions. But Cooper talked the medical staff into allowing him to participate in individual drills. The coaches felt Cooper looked good enough to list him questionable. Asked about Cooper's availability after practice, Jack Del Rio told reporters he had "some thoughts on it but I don't need to share them" with the Chiefs. While the Raiders have left Cooper's status open, I think it's very unlikely we'll see them play Cooper. He's clearly not fully recovered, at risk of an aggravation, and was not considered in the offensive game plan at any point this week. If Cooper is active, he's unlikely to see a full snap count or be highly targeted.

    ***Sunday AM Update: According to Ian Rapoport, Cooper "impressed the team with how quickly he improved late in the week" and a source gives Cooper a "good chance" to play. Even if he's comfortable in pre-game warmups, it's tough to project Cooper for a full complement of productive snaps with only one surprise limited practice in two weeks.


    Emmanuel Sanders
    | Ankle | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Full | Fri - Limited

    Sanders is not healthy. Though he's managed a full practice this week, the Broncos continue to limit his reps during the week. Sanders has seen his snap count drop from 90% and 96% in his first two full games back to 88% and 85% over the past two weeks. Vance Joseph told reporters he expects Sanders to play but recognizes his receiver is still sore.


    Cordarrelle Patterson
    | Hip | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Patterson has played through hip soreness for multiple weeks. Though limited in practice, the Raiders expect him to play again this week. He'll face a Kansas City secondary without Marcus Peters.


    Mike Williams
    | Knee | Questionable | Game-time Decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Full

    Williams returned to a full practice on Friday but the Chargers were not ready to commit him to the active roster on Friday after practice. Anthony Lynn told reporters the team wanted to be certain Williams responded to Friday's practice without difficulty. Barring an unexpected issue on Saturday, Williams is primed to return to a limited role.

    Sunday AM Update: Williams is expected to play.


    Others of note:
    Marqise Lee (knee), Jermaine Kearse (shoulder), Will Fuller (ribs), and Josh
    Bellamy
    (illness) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Robert Woods (shoulder), Allen Hurns (ankle), John Brown (toe), and Maurice Harris (concussion) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    TIGHT END

    Zach Ertz | Concussion | Questionable | Awaiting Information

    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    The Philadelphia media expected Ertz to be cleared on Friday after his return to individual workouts on Thursday. Ertz remained limited on Friday, however, and the team listed him questionable. That's not necessarily an indication Ertz won't be cleared to play. The return-to-play protocol is managed by the team. Though most players return to a full practice, a player does not necessarily have to be cleared for contact by the team before heading to an independent neurologist for full clearance. The Eagles may always have planned to wait until after Friday's practice to send Ertz to the independent neurologist. Though the Eagles are in Los Angeles already -- they never returned home after last week's west coast game -- it's possible they arranged for a late Friday or Saturday evaluation. We'll know Ertz's status in advance of game time and I'll update here.

    ***Sunday AM Update: The news on Ertz is not reassuring this morning. Adam Schefter reported the Eagles "still want to look" at Ertz on Sunday morning. Ian Rapoport says Ertz's status "may hinge on how he feels this morning." It would be very unusual for a team to send a player for clearance by the independent neurologist without feeling he's ready to play. The Schefter and Rapoport tweets strongly suggest Ertz hasn't had the independent examination. If that's accurate, Ertz will not play today. Schefter and Rapoport reported Ertz as doubtful and a longshot. I'm not sure why they're leaving the door open, but I'll update with any surprising positive news.


    Greg Olsen
    | Foot | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Olsen fully practiced this week after being reassured by Dr. Robert Anderson that the soreness he experienced in his first game back was not structural or concerning. Two weeks ago, the Panthers planned to limit Olsen to certain offensive packages. While the Panthers have remained cautious, Olsen has said: "It's now or just kind of forget it for the year." And there have been no local reports about limiting Olsen's snaps this week. While Olsen may be limited, I think it'll be up to him. If he's feeling good early and conditioning is a non-factor, we may see him closer to 80% of the Panthers' offensive snaps than 50%.


    Delanie Walker
    | Ankle | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Full

    Walker left last week's game with a high ankle sprain. The mechanism looked minor and despite resting until Friday, Walker is not listed on the game status report and ready to play. There's a slight risk of aggravation but Walker can be expected to see his usual workload.


    Others of note
    : Jimmy Graham (ankle), Charles Clay (knee), David Njoku (wrist), and Vance McDonald (ankle) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    Defensive Player Notes

    ***As of Saturday night, both Patrick Peterson and Jalen Ramsey are expected to play.

    ***The Bengals will be without at least five defensive starters. Cornerbacks Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick, safety Shawn Williams, and linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil are all out this week. And, though the Bengals list him questionable, Geno Atkins was in a boot Thursday after practice and looks unlikely to play. If Darqueze Dennard sits with a knee injury, Cincinnati could be without seven important defensive pieces.

    ***Alec Ogletree is expected to play through a painful elbow injury but watch his pregame status carefully. There's still a chance the Rams hold him out.

    ***Telvin Smith had fully practiced after missing last week's game with a concussion. But he was listed DNP and Friday and is now questionable. The Jaguars sometimes list players fully expected to play as questionable but this looks like an ominous downgrade rather than an end-of-the-week precaution.

    ***Those who spoke with Trey Flowers in the locker room see similarities in his practice participation and media comments to last week when he didn't play. If he's active, it'll be in a rotational role.

    ***Deone Bucannon returned to full practices and isn't listed on the game status report. The Cardinals hinted they'd ease Bucannon in slowly but his practice participation suggests they may give him a bigger workload than anticipated.

    ***The Chiefs move Dee Ford to injured reserve. Tamba Hali could play this week but his status should be considered snap-to-snap.

    Sunday Update

    NE - QB Tom Brady off injury report

    Source: ESPNBoston.com - Mike Reiss

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles') fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 9, and has been removed from the team's Week 14 injury report.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    This injury can be managed, but it was curious to see Brady miss two days of practice this week. The team plays on Monday night, so a little bit more rest was likely to help the veteran QB. After a down week last time out, Brady still has QB1 written all over him in Week 14.

    BUF - QB Nathan Peterman the likely starter

    Source: Democrat and Chronicle - Sal Maiorana

    Buffalo Bills QB Nathan Peterman received all the first-team reps in practice this week, and Sal Maiorana of the Democrat and Chronicle said it would be 'utterly shocking' if Peterman wasn't the starter against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tyrod Taylor (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Colts. We'd consider Taylor a streaming option if he was healthy, but it looks like Peterman is going to get the nod instead. Let's just hope for Bills fans sake the rookie doesn't throw five interceptions again.

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) looked pretty good during a limited practice appearance Friday, Dec. 8, according to coaches, and the Raiders are holding out hope that Cooper can play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Cooper was limited in practice on Friday and we could see him as a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Last time he faced Kansas City, Cooper went off for over 200 yards receiving. At less than 100 percent, Cooper is a risky boom/bust play for fantasy owners...if he plays in Week 14.

    DEN - Coach expects WR Emmanuel Sanders to play

    Source: ESPN.com - Jeff Legwold

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is expected to play in Week 14 even though he is listed as questionable, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Broncos offense hasn't looked good in some time, and it is going to be difficult to trust any skill position player in Week 14. We consider Sanders a WR4 for Sunday's game against the Jets. Joseph said Sanders has been dealing with a sore ankle for a few weeks.

    IND - WR Chester Rogers to see more work?

    Source: Colts.com - Andrew Walker

    Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers could see increased snaps against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14 with WR Donte Moncrief (ankle) ruled out, according to Andrew Walker of Colts.com.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    In Week 10, Rogers had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers. The former Grambling State receiver has seven catches over the last two weeks and has the speed to be a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. Rogers is a WR6 for fantasy owners, but he's a classic 'what the heck' flex/sleeper in Week 14 with potentially a larger opportunity.

    NE - WR Danny Amendola to pick up slack in Week 14?

    Source: Boston Herald - Jeff Howe

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola could pick up the slack with TE Rob Gronkowski suspended for the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    When Gronkowski was sidelined in Week 5, Amendola finished with eight catches for 77 yards on a season-high 55 snaps. Amendola could be a WR with upside for fantasy owners this Monday night against the Dolphins. We should see the return of WR Chris Hogan this week, and that could negatively impact the number of targets Amendola could potentially see.

    ARI - No timetable for RB Adrian Peterson

    Source: AZCardinals.com - Darren Urban

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) has already been ruled out for Week 14, and head coach Bruce Arians said there is no timetable for Peterson's return.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Neck injuries are nothing to mess around with. The team needs to take it easy on Peterson so the injury is not further aggravated. With Peterson already out for Week 14, Kerwynn Williams gets another start for the Cardinals. We like him as a RB3 against the Titans on Sunday.

    SEA - RB Chris Carson suffers setback

    Source: Seahawks.com - John Boyle
    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) has suffered a setback in his recovery, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    There was a chance that Carson was going to be activated late in the regular season. This setback puts that thought in doubt, although the rookie RB could return for the postseason provided things stay on track from here on out.

    Monday Update

    PHI - QB Carson Wentz might have torn ACL

    Source: The Associated Press

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) might have a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, sources said Sunday, Dec. 10. He will have an MRI to confirm the injury on Monday, Dec. 11.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Usually when this is the report, the injury ends up being a torn ACL. If Wentz is out, Nick Foles will take over as the team regroups.

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for a season-high 332 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the New York Giants.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Prescott was aided by a long garbage time score, but he was also let down by drops in the first half. He's back in our circle of trust for Week 15 against Oakland.

    GB - QB Brett Hundley tosses three TDs in win

    Source: The Associated Press

    Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 35 of his 46 pass attempts for 265 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also ran 31 yards on seven attempts.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Hundley has made strides after a slow start as the passer for the Packers. He has added to his resume for trade value this offseason or free agency in 2019. He should at least compete to start somewhere down the line, but for this year it's probably over as long as Aaron Rodgers is medically cleared.

    CLE - QB DeShone Kizer comes up just short

    Source: The Associated Press

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 20 of his 28 pass attempts for 214 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Green Bay Packers and he ran twice for seven yards but he was unable to secure his first NFL win.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Kizer benefited from a nice play in the end zone by Josh Gordon, but he has definitely shown improvement in the second half of the year. The Browns will likely draft a quarterback high next year, but Kizer can still be a starter in the NFL, even if it's not until he gets to his second team.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Bernard had a strong fantasy game even though the Bengals offense was stuck in neutral for most of the afternoon. If Joe Mixon is back against the Vikings next week, he's droppable, but if Mixon is still in concussion protocol, he could have PPR flex appeal.

    Wright took his turn as the #1 receiver this week and made Dontrelle Inman irrelevant. He's a free agent next year, but if Wright can continue to develop chemistry with Trubisky maybe the team will bring him back.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Howard scored early and was able to get in a groove because the Bears controlled this game from start to finish. He should be in fantasy semifinals lineups against the Lions next week.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Gore was the offense in the snow at Buffalo. If you were able to anticipate this after seeing pre-game pictures from Western New York then you deserve it, but don't go back to him against Denver next week.

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) returned in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings, but he went without a catch and he was targeted just once.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Olsen had to leave to have his foot taped and didn't look like himself. He's not trustworthy to play like the player we expected him to be this year, but if you're hurting at tight end, we can hold him on the bench against the Packers next week to see if he might have use for Week 16.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    One has to wonder if Gallman has moved ahead of Orleans Darkwa going into the game against the Eagles next week. Gallman should be poised to be part of a committee backfield next year with whoever the new regime brings in to play running back next year. Gallman should be owned in dynasty leagues.

    All of Smith's meaningful production came in garbage time, but it counts just the same if you plugged him in as a desperation play. He'll get a second look as one next week against the Raiders.
