    • John Brown leads Cardinals in receiving
      John Brown caught three passes for 54 yards in the Cardinals' Week 16 loss to Seattle.

      Advice: Brown led the Cardinals in receiving in a game where Ryan Lindley completed just 41 percent of his passes. He remains the No. 3 option behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. Brown won't be on the daily-league radar against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Floyd does little in Week 16
      Michael Floyd caught two passes for 41 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

      Advice: Floyd was a non-factor outside of a 32-yard catch in the third quarter. He was Ryan Lindley's No. 2 option, finishing with eight targets. Floyd is averaging 59 yards over his last four games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 11. Rotoworld.com

      Doug Baldwin had seven catches for 113 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

      Advice: Baldwin's biggest play was a 49-yard third-quarter catch where Cardinals CB Antonio Cromartie fell down at the line of scrimmage. With Jermaine Kearse sidelined, he was targeted a team-high 11 times. Baldwin will take a 63/782/3 line in Week 17 against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

Fitzgerald could get an upgrade with Drew Stanton hoping to return in Week 17. The Cardinals play the 49ers in their final game before the postseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Julio Jones says he'll be 'OK' for Week 17
      Following Sunday's win at New Orleans, Julio Jones (oblique) said he'll be "OK" for Week 17.

      Advice: Jones wasn't 100 percent Sunday, but was healthy enough to put seven catches and a team-high 107 yards on the Saints. "I felt OK," he said. "I know I needed to be out there with my teammates. ... I felt pretty good: Not 100 percent, but it was good enough to go out there and get the W." We wouldn't expect Jones to practice much, if at all this week. But considering the Falcons are playing the Panthers for the NFC South next week, he'll almost certainly be starting again.

      Tavon Austin caught one pass for 15 yards and rushed three times for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

      Advice: Austin really hurt the team by having a first-quarter screen pass clang off his hands and get picked off by the Giants. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 draft remains a gadget player at best and now has just 29 catches on the season. The Rams finish up at Seattle in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He saw a team-high seven targets. Thompkins' big gain was a 50-yard catch deep down the middle in Aaron Williams' coverage. He was tackled at the four-yard line, and James Jones secured a three-yard touchdown a couple plays later. Thompkins is the No. 3 receiver behind Jones and Andre Holmes, but the Raiders throw the ball a ton. Oakland will head to Denver for the Week 17 finale. Rotoworld.com

    • Hakeem Nicks gets 11 targets with Hilton out
      Hakeem Nicks caught 9-of-11 targets for 72 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.

      Advice: Nicks was the focus of the Colts' passing attack with T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) sidelined, so it is not a huge surprise the offense fell flat on its face. Nicks was inexplicably used on four screen passes throughout the game, predictably doing nothing after each catch. T.Y. Hilton appeared close to playing against Dallas, so Nicks should mercifully be relegated to a tertiary role Week 17 against Tennessee. Rotoworld.com

      Dez Bryant caught all five of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: Bryant skied over Greg Toler for a 19-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and generally dominated the Colts defensive backs anytime the ball went his way. Unfortunately for Bryant's fantasy owners, the Colts put up almost zero resistance, and Tony Romo only had to throw the ball 20 times in the game.

    • Wallace goes 5-58-2 against Vikings
      Mike Wallace secured 5-of-5 targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

      Advice: For the second straight week, the Vikings used Xavier Rhodes to shadow the enemy No. 1 receiver. Rhodes shut down Calvin Johnson in Week 15 and mostly handled Wallace in this one. The only first-half reception made by Wallace came on a slot route against Vikings slot CB Captain Munnerlyn for a gain of ten. Wallace did get loose for a third-quarter touchdown from 16 yards out, running away from the Vikings' defense. He scored again in the fourth quarter on a seven-yard reception. Wallace will enter the Dolphins' Week 17 meeting with the Jets with ten TDs, tying a career high. A high-scoring every-week WR2, Wallace was an absolute steal at his seventh-round preseason ADP.

Wilson should have had a 65-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but Alex Smith overthrew him.

    • DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) game-time decision
      The Texans consider DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) a game-time decision for Week 16.

      Advice: Hopkins missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices. The "game-time decision" label should be taken with a grain of salt, as Texans coach Bill O'Brien fancies himself a spymaster, and would apply the GTD tag to a player even if they were only battling a cold. For now, owners need to sit tight and wait for more information to emerge. A back-up plan is definitely in order. Rotoworld.com

      Percy Harvin returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

      Advice: Harvin will be fine for Week 16, but going up against one of the league's best secondaries with Geno Smith at quarterback, he's not a realistic WR3 for the fantasy finals. Rotoworld.com

    • Torrey Smith not on injury report
      Torrey Smith is not listed on the Week 16 injury report.

      Advice: It's a bit of a surprise. Smith's knee injury turned him into a mere decoy in Week 14 and then he posted 2-16-0 on three targets in Week 15. By not even mentioning him on the injury report, the Ravens are saying he's close to 100 percent for a dreamy matchup with the Texans Sunday. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Hopkins played all 72 snaps in Sunday's loss, so it's not clear when he suffered the injury. With Andre Johnson returning this week and Thad Lewis or Case Keenum expected to start, Hopkins should be avoided as a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

    • Torrey Smith plays 52-of-64 snaps in Week 15
      Torrey Smith played 52-of-64 (81.25 percent) of the snaps in the Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

      Advice: Smith battled a knee sprain in Week 14, which limited him to 15 snaps. He barely practiced ahead of the Jacksonville game and was listed as probable, though some Ravens beat writers believed Smith was closer to doubtful. It didn't end up that way. Smith played his normal snap rate, but did nothing with his three targets, catching just two of them for 16 yards. He dropped the other one and also took a holding penalty. Smith will be fine as a WR2 for Week 16 in Houston. Rotoworld.com

      Dez Bryant had six catches for 114 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 15 win over the Eagles.

      Advice: Bryant scored all three of his touchdowns against Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher. The Cowboys were able to get him more involved after he was held out of the end-zone the last two weeks. He's now up to 79 catches, 1,148 yards and 13 touchdowns. Bryant will remain a high-end WR1 for next week's matchup with the Colts. Rotoworld.com

      Emmanuel Sanders caught three passes for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

      Advice: Sanders saw just three targets on a day Peyton Manning attempted just 20 passes. We'd call that a fluke, except Sanders saw a meager six targets in Week 14 on a day Manning threw 20 passes. The run-heavy style obvious cripples volume, and it certainly didn't help that Sanders got tackled at the 1-yard line on a slant Sunday. He'll be a WR2 at Cincy next week, but we can't guarantee volume any longer. Rotoworld.com

      Paul Richardson caught 3-of-5 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

      Advice: The score was Richardson's first, while the yards were the second most of his rookie season. That's the good. The bad were Richardson's continued questionable decisions on returns. Richardson remains one of the few touches of gray on what has otherwise been an otherworldly receiver class. Rotoworld.com

      Percy Harvin rushed once for 10 yards and was held without a catch Week 15 against the Titans.

      Advice: Harvin did not appear to be bothered by his ankle injury. He looked fine on the 10-yard rush and had a good kickoff return in the third quarter. He could not haul in any of his three targets, though, and was a non-factor all game. Harvin has been inconsistent in his time with the Jets and cannot be trusted as anything more than a WR4 Week 16 against the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

      Eric Decker caught 7-of-11 targets for 100 yards Week 15 against the Titans.

      Advice: Decker just stepped out of bounds on what would have been an 81-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he still managed to crack the century mark for the first time as a Jet. Decker has turned around his season with 13 catches for 189 yards over the last two weeks, but he will not be a recommended option against the tough New England secondary Week 16. Rotoworld.com

      Cordarrelle Patterson secured 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Vikings' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

      Advice: Patterson entered this game questionable with a hamstring injury. He played behind Charles Johnson, Greg Jennings, and Jarius Wright. Patterson did break off a 51-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter and made two late catches on Minnesota's final drive. Unfortunately, he was droppable in re-draft leagues awhile back.

      Advice: Wilson caught a 48-yard bomb from Alex Smith in the second quarter and showed sticky hands on a couple underneath throws. Wilson has shown well in two starts with Donnie Avery (groin) sidelined and could carve out a role as a slot receiver in Kansas City. He is a name to monitor in deep PPR Dynasty formats.

      Mike Wallace caught 5-of-7 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

      Advice: Wallace was expected to get erased with Darrelle Revis anchoring the Patriots' secondary, but instead drew lots of undrafted rookie Malcolm Butler. It was Butler whom Wallace smoked for his 32-yard touchdown in the second quarter, making a circus catch in the end zone. Astoundingly, the 100-yard day was the first of the $60 million receiver's season. He'll remain a mid-range WR2 for the fantasy finals against the Vikings. Rotoworld.com

      Torrey Smith caught two passes for 16 yards in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

      Advice: Battling a sprained knee, Smith got the start but was targeted just three times. He did more harm than good out there. Near the end of the first half, Smith was whistled for holding then dropped a ball deep down the middle on the next play. Smith could use a week off, but it doesn't appear he'll get one. He'll be a WR2/3 next week when the Ravens travel to take on the Texans. Rotoworld.com

    • DeAndre Hopkins a target monster in loss
      DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Indy.

      Advice: Hopkins saw a season-high 13 targets, a predictable number once Andre Johnson (concussion) was ruled out. No other Texan had more than four targets. The problem was that Hopkins saw Vontae Davis' side too often and Tom Savage was overwhelmed in a relief role. A Week 16 matchup against the Ravens is tasty on paper, but Johnson's likely return and Savage's woes make Hopkins a risky WR3 play despite Sunday's volume. Rotoworld.com

      Hakeem Nicks caught two passes for 44 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Texans.

      Advice: Nicks came to life out of a 3-wide set in the second quarter, catching a 26-yard touchdown on a crossing pattern. He added an acrobatic sideline catch later, but those were his only targets on the day as Donte Moncrief once again ran as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver. Don't go chasing Nicks' stats, even against the Cowboys in Week 16. Rotoworld.com

      Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 123 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

      Advice: He caught all 10 passes that came his direction. Brown's best grab was a toe-tapping grab just before halftime that set the offense up at the one-yard line. Le'Veon Bell pounded in the touchdown on the next play. Brown has proven time and again that even the best corners in the league can't hang with him. Desmond Trufant was the latest victim. Brown now has at least five catches and 50 yards in 30 straight games. Watch him work next week against the Chiefs at home. Rotoworld.com

He's established himself as the Jets' featured receiver since coming over from Seattle, but could be released if he's unwilling to restructure. GM John Idzik is on the hot seat and could be fired along with Rex Ryan. The Jets will be on the hook for a 2015 fourth-round pick if Harvin is on their roster next season. Rotoworld.com

"This was a significant [ankle] injury. It's unbelievable. I'm still not sure, but I've been impressed." We'd bet on Harvin playing, but wouldn't bet on him as more than a crapshoot WR3 in fantasy.

It's a big change from early in thew week when Ryan indicated Harvin might be facing a multi-week absence. Instead, his ankle sprain was diagnosed as "low," and he's on track to face Tennessee.
