    • Rashad Jennings active for Giants
      Rashad Jennings (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Eagles.

      Advice: Jennings could have just packed it in for the season, but returns for a meaningless finale. He'll share time with Andre Williams. Rotoworld.com

      Jamaal Charles (ankle, hamstring) is active for Week 17 against the Chargers.

      Advice: Charles was listed as questionable, but practiced throughout the week. He should be locked into a heavy workload with Chase Daniel starting. The Chiefs inactives are QB Alex Smith, WR Donnie Avery, CB Phillip Gaines, CB Marcus Cooper, C Eric Kush, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, and DL Nick Williams. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Expect a relatively even timeshare for Williams and Jennings in this one. We'd rather try to exploit the Eagles' defense with Eli Manning, Odell Beckham and the pass game. The Giants inactives: CB Jayron Hosley, LB Devon Kennard, G Eric Herman, OL Adam Gettis, TE Jerome Cunningham and DT Dominique Hamilton. Rotoworld.com

      According to ESPN's Bob Holtzman, A.J. Green (bicep) will play in Sunday night's game against the Steelers but is "uncertain what to expect."

      Advice: Green "badly" bruised his bicep during last week's win over the Broncos. He attempted to play through it briefly, but was in too much pain and left for good in the third quarter. Green has obviously gotten some of the soreness out over the last six days and earned a "probable" tag, but he doesn't sound close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com

      CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Terrance West will start against the Ravens in Week 17.

      Advice: Literally laughing out loud. This comes a week after West played zero snaps because of poor practice habits. But he's getting the nod over Isaiah Crowell. It'll be hard not to fire up the Ravens defense anywhere and everywhere in fantasy. The Ravens need a win, and the Browns will trot out UDFA Connor Shaw at quarterback, West in the backfield, and be without Josh Gordon. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Josh Gordon a 'problem' who 'has to go'
      CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Josh Gordon is viewed as a "perpetual problem" inside the Browns' organization and "has to go."

      Advice: Let the pile-on begin. The Gordon bashers have come out in full force the past month, and it's now coming to a head after the team suspended him for the season finale because he missed Saturday's walkthrough. Words like "former star" and "habitually late" were also mentioned in the CBS piece. The Browns put up with Gordon's problems when he posted one of the best seasons in NFL history last season, but now that their season has collapsed in front of them, it's time to throw blame wherever. And Gordon and Johnny Manziel are the ones receiving it. The Browns have been an historically-bad organization for years now. They'd be dumb to dump Gordon. But it appears a split may be coming.

      ESPN Cleveland doesn't expect Josh Gordon to remain with the Browns in 2015.

      Advice: The Browns suspended Gordon after he failed to show up for Saturday's walk-through. He'll finish with just five games active this season, which could prevent him from being eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2016. Per ESPN's Tony Grossi, "it appears doubtful" Gordon will be back with the team. The Browns nearly traded Gordon prior to the 2013 deadline and could shop him again this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Browns suspend Gordon for breaking team rules
      Browns suspended Josh Gordon for Week 17 against the Ravens for a violation of team rules.

      Advice: Gordon was placed on the reserve/suspended list. WR Phil Bates was promoted off the practice squad to take his place. The Browns did not announce why Gordon was suspended, but NFL.com's Mike Silver reports Gordon missed the Browns' Saturday walk through. The suspension ends a tumultuous season for Gordon. After missing the first 11 weeks of the season serving a league-mandated suspension, Gordon looked out of shape and unfamiliar with the playbook as he struggled his way to 24 catches for 303 yards and zero touchdowns in five starts. Bad quarterback play certainly contributed to Gordon's disappointing stretch, but he was not the transcendent talent that took the league by storm in 2013. Coming off a down season and now serving his third suspension in two years, Gordon's Dynasty stock is crumbling. Rotoworld.com

That could include resting players dealing with nagging injuries like Julian Edelman (concussion) and LeGarrette Blount (shoulder). Both are listed as questionable for this week, and it would not be surprising if both are inactive. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys' starters practiced this week as if they were playing in a "regular role."

      Advice: Needing basically a miracle to earn a first-round bye, the Cowboys have little reason to play their starters against Washington. That appears to matter little to coach Jason Garrett, who has been consistent the starters will play a normal role Week 17. A full game may be Dallas' intent, but it would not be surprising if Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant are pulled at some point in the game. All three are risky targets in daily formats.

    • DeAngelo Williams may not return to Carolina
      ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes the Panthers will move on from RB DeAngelo Williams following the season.

      Advice: After years of struggling under the dead-money weight of Williams' contract, the Panthers will finally be in a position to cut loose the aging running back this offseason. Williams is only due $1.85 million in base salary in 2015, but carries a cap hit of $6.33 million for next season. The cap-strapped Panthers could save around $2 million on the 2015 cap by designating Williams a post-June 1 cut. With his play on the field slipping, it is an easy move for Carolina to make.

Stewart has rushed for a league-high 437 yards over the past four games and has helped spark the Panthers to three straight wins. He is a solid RB2 against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: When Thomas left the Week 16 loss to the Falcons early, it was announced as a foot injury. Now he's listed with a rib issue. Regardless, we should consider Thomas very questionable for Sunday's meaningless game at Tampa. His absence would upgrade the situation for Mark Ingram and give Khiry Robinson a shot at a few extra touches. Rotoworld.com

    • Steven Jackson (quad) expected to sit Sunday
      Steven Jackson (quad) is not expected to play in Sunday's Week 17 game against the Panthers.

      Advice: At age 31, Jackson wasn't going to recover from a pulled quad muscle in seven days. So the Falcons will roll into their showdown for the NFC South with a committee of Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers at running back. Practice squad callup Jerome Smith will be the No. 3 back. Note that following S-Jax's injury last week, Rodgers played 25 snaps compared to 18 for Freeman. Quizz will handle more of the third-down work and pass game duties, while the rookie handles more base work. We far prefer Freeman as the plug-n-play -- he's more versatile and a better inside runner. Rotoworld.com

The bigger question is how motivated the Colts will be, as they're essentially locked into the AFC's No. 4 seed. For what it's worth, coach Chuck Pagano has said all his starters will play as he wants the offense to get some confidence back before the Wild Card round.

Given Jackson's age (31) and history of soft tissue injuries, we'll consider him very questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Panthers. If Jackson sits, Freeman and passing back Rodgers would form a committee. Freeman is the preferred add as he'd handle more base back duties. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He was targeted just seven times, finishing third on the team behind Demaryius Thomas (13) and C.J. Anderson (10). Sanders, however, did the most damage with his looks. He scored his four-yard touchdown on a quick slant out of a trips set to the left. His second touchdown came from five yards away. In between those grabs, Sanders reeled in a one-handed 33-yard catch with Terence Newman mugging him on the right sideline. Sanders proved to be one of the best bargains of the season. He and the Broncos wrap up the season with the Raiders in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

Stewart was the focal point of Carolina's offense in this game, but did have a two-yard touchdown "vultured" by Cam Newton in the second quarter. Stewart came back to hit pay dirt on a nine-yard reception in the fourth quarter. Regardless of DeAngelo Williams' (hand) health, Stewart should remain a good bet for production in Carolina's NFC South title bout with Atlanta in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Julio Jones catches 7 for 107 against Saints
      Julio Jones caught 7-of-8 targets for 107 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

      Advice: Jones did not play every snap, but he played the vast majority despite not practicing at all leading up to the game. Jones did not appear to be 100 percent healthy, but he still made several big plays including a huge 24-yard grab that set up the Falcons for a touchdown with little time left in the second quarter. Jones appeared to escape the game without any setbacks, meaning he should be good to go for the winner take all game against the Panthers next week. Rotoworld.com

      DeMarco Murray (hand) is officially active for Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: As expected Murray will play, but he may be limited by the cast on his left hand. Lance Dunbar should see more work in the passing game while Joseph Randle could siphon off some carries as well. With both RT Doug Free (ankle) inactive and RG Zack Martin (ankle) banged up, Murray could also be hindered by the health of the Cowboys' offensive line. Even with all the concerns, Murray has proven this season is a must-start option. Along with Free, the Cowboys declared DE Kenneth Boatright, DT Josh Brent, DB Jakar Hamilton, T Donald Hawkins, QB Dustin Vaughn and OLB Dekoda Watson inactive for Week 16. Rotoworld.com

With the division locked up and a first-round bye a pipe dream, there is no reason to risk Hilton against Dallas. Donte Moncrief is a high-upside play against the Cowboys burnable defense.

      Advice: Look for Hilton to test out his gimpy hammy in warmups, but we're not expecting Hilton to suit up for the 4:25 ET kickoff -- especially with the Colts having little to play for. Owners need to have other plans in place. "If he's not 100 percent, can't open it up and be TY, then there's no sense putting him out there," coach Chuck Pagano said. If Hilton ultimately doesn't play, Donte Moncrief will see an expanded role in two- and three-wide sets next to Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks. Moncrief is the preferred plug-n-play as he has the freshest legs and has out-snapped Nicks badly the last few weeks. Rotoworld.com

      Rookie WR Bruce Ellington suffered a hamstring injury in the 49ers' Week 16 game against the Chargers.

      Advice: Ellington appeared to pull a hamstring in the third quarter. He tried to re-enter, but was ruled out in the fourth. Ellington was in the middle of a breakout when he suffered the injury. He caught the first touchdown pass of his career in the second quarter and closed out the first half with a one-yard touchdown run. Ellington was clearly a focal point of the offense early in the game, seeing four targets and three carries in the first half.

In theory, he'll cut into Jonathan Stewart's workload, but we wouldn't be surprised if Williams is nothing more than a breather option for J-Stew, who has run well in Williams' absence. D-Will is not on the fantasy radar for Week 16. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrew Hawkins misses practice Thursday
      Andrew Hawkins missed Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Hawkins is battling an illness. He's going to be fine for Sunday's game against the Panthers, but won't be on the WR3 radar. Rotoworld.com

    • Rashad Jennings not practicing again
      Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not practicing Thursday.

      Advice: It would be a major surprise if the oft-injured Jennings suits up Sunday, one week after aggravating his lingering ankle sprain. Andre Williams, who rushed 18 times for 44 yards against the Redskins last week, would be a candidate for a similar workload plus any goal-line duties. Rotoworld.com

    • Julian Edelman practicing again
      Julian Edelman (concussion) is practicing again Thursday.

      Advice: He was officially limited. We have no word on if Edelman has merely been cleared for practice, or if he's been cleared for full contact. But given his presence each of the last two days, he's on track to suit up as a WR2 against the Jets Sunday. Rotoworld.com
