      Advice: "I think he looks good," coach Doug Marrone said Thursday. "It's just a matter of waiting until the end of the week and make a move there." Marrone went on to say Spiller has looked "explosive," and is "moving well." Spiller will change the pace for Fred Jackson if he's active against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com

      DeMarco Murray (hand) practiced for the second-consecutive day on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

      Advice: Murray was officially listed as "DNP" on Wednesday even though he was observed by the assembled media as practicing. Either way, Murray continues to get reps, and has even been catching passes with his left hand wrapped up. It sure seems like the Cowboys expect him to suit up against the Colts, though it's possible he'll officially be a game-time decision. Murray comes with much more risk than usual for the fantasy finals, but owners in season-long leagues have to play him if he's active. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will form a committee if Murray can't go. More of a pass catcher than Randle, Dunbar's role figures to be bigger than usual even if Murray plays. Rotoworld.com

    • LeSean McCoy concedes goal-line work to Polk
      LeSean McCoy admitted that Chris Polk is taking over as the Eagles' primary goal-line back.

      Advice: Polk played three snaps in Week 15, turning two of them into short touchdowns. A third goal-line carry went to Darren Sproles. "Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game. ... "There's just some plays on 3rd-and-1 type of situations where I probably wouldn't have gotten it, where I see him kind of hit a guy, drag a guy and get in there," McCoy candidly conceded. It's not out of the question that Shady gets some goal-line chances in the flow of the Eagles' hurry-up scheme, but Polk is a drain on touchdown projections. We already know McCoy was struggling to churn up yards and has lost significant pass-game work to Sproles. Rotoworld.com

      RB Joseph Randle handled the first-team reps during the team portion of Wednesday's practice.

But if he can't, Randle would handle the majority of base back duties, including goal-line work. That's key as eight of DeMarco's 11 touchdowns this season have come from three yards out or closer. Randle is the preferred handcuff while we await more news on Murray. Rotoworld.com

      According to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank, Chris Polk received the first running back rep at Eagles practice on Wednesday, ahead of LeSean McCoy.

      Advice: McCoy laughed off the running back order following the practice, and Frank concedes it's "impossible to tell" if it actually meant anything. McCoy was reportedly "on the sideline while Polk worked with the first unit." Reporters were only able to view two practice reps before the session was closed to media. "We rotate all the time," McCoy said Wednesday afternoon. "(RBs coach) Duce (Staley) pulled me out. (Darren) Sproles wasn't in either." The Eagles are preparing to play the Redskins on Saturday evening. When Philly and Washington played earlier this year, McCoy managed 22 yards on 19 carries. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Broncos could put Hillman to use as a complement to C.J. Anderson, who's averaged an unruly 27.25 carries per game over the past month. Shifty and quick, Hillman would make more sense as a true change-of-pace than Juwan Thompson, who is a big back like Anderson.

      Advice: The reports out of Valley Ranch Tuesday morning have been rosy, with both Bryan Broaddus of the team's official site and ESPN's Ed Werder reporting optimism. Murray underwent surgery on his left (non-dominant) hand Monday night and can't do any more damage by playing through it. This is also a borderline must-win game for the Cowboys' playoff hopes. We should have a good idea on Murray's status by Friday afternoon, but official word might not come until at 3pm ET Sunday ahead of the 4:25pm ET kick. Joseph Randle is a priority insurance add.

      Advice: A former longtime Cowboys and NFL scout, Broaddus is as plugged-in as anyone covering the team. Cowboys VP Stephen Jones stated on Sirius XM Radio Monday that Murray faced an "uphill battle" to face Indianapolis, but that may have been gamesmanship ahead of arguably the biggest game of Week 16. It's worth noting that Murray's band surgery on his hand was performed on his left hand. Murray primarily carries the ball with his right hand. The injury could affect him in pass protection and as a receiver, but Murray should be all systems go as a ball carrier against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

      Cowboys VP Stephen Jones conceded on Sirius XM Radio Monday that it will be an "uphill battle" for DeMarco Murray to play Sunday versus Indianapolis.

      Advice: We've seen more upbeat reporters on Murray's chances of playing elsewhere on the internet, but indications coming directly from the team are less optimistic. Jones expressed confidence Murray would play in Week 17 against the Redskins. But it sounds like Joseph Randle is the favorite to start this week against the Colts. Indy has one of the league's leakiest run defenses, and the Cowboys would be facing them at home in a potential shootout. Randle would become a plug-and-play RB2 in fantasy championship week.

    • DeMarco needs hand surgery, status uncertain
      DeMarco Murray is undergoing Monday surgery to repair a broken band in his left hand, but has yet to be ruled out for Week 16.

      Advice: Murray is specifically dealing with a broken fourth metacarpal. The injury is to his non-ball carrying hand. Per reporter Todd Archer, Emmitt Smith suffered a similar injury in his playing days, and missed only one game. It's clearly not a long-term concern, but the Cowboys will be in a world of trouble if they lose to the Colts on Sunday. For now, owners should consider Murray truly day to day. If Murray can't go, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will form a committee in his absence, with Randle likely handling early downs and Dunbar getting passing work. Even if Murray suits up for Week 16, it's possible he'll be limited. Brittle through the first three years of his NFL career, Murray's first injury of 2014 couldn't be worse timed, though the Cowboys have been tempting fate with his massive workloads. Rotoworld.com

Lynch has now cleared 86 yards rushing in 5-of-6 games, scoring six total touchdowns in the process. Although he's been running well, he'll be a lower-end RB1 in a tough Week 16 road trip to Arizona.

    • Asiata gets 18 touches as Vikings fall
      Matt Asiata rushed 11 times for 36 yards and a touchdown and caught seven balls for 50 yards in the Vikings' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

      Advice: Continuing to operate as Minnesota's feature back, Asiata got the Vikings on the board with a first-quarter two-yard touchdown run. The Vikings trust Asiata more than Ben Tate and Joe Banyard, particularly in pass protection. So that means Asiata will continue to get lead back work despite his ineffectiveness on the field. Sort of like a younger version of Steven Jackson at this stage of S-Jax's career, Asiata will be a touchdown-dependent flex option in Week 16 against the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde (ankle) knocked out vs. Seattle
      Carlos Hyde was forced from San Francisco's Week 15 game against the Seahawks with a right-ankle injury, and will not return.

      Advice: Hyde got rolled up in ugly fashion in the fourth quarter, but was able to hobble off the field under his own power. He appeared to have a chance to return, but was ruled out with a little over five minutes remaining. Hyde was running well before going down, taking the rock six times for 55 yards. Five of Hyde's six carries went for at least five yards. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, FB Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith are the next men up on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com

      Shane Vereen rushed six times for five yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 15 win over the Dolphins, adding a 12-yard reception.

      Advice: Vereen continued to disappoint as a receiving threat, but surprisingly vultured a three-yard score from LeGarrette Blount in the second quarter. The Pats' ground attack had no rhyme or reason this afternoon, with Jonas Gray getting re-involved and actually leading the team in touches. Vereen will be a boom-or-bust FLEX option against the Jets for the fantasy finals. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Forsett had a mouthwatering matchup on paper, but the Jaguars have been playing better defense for the better part of two months now. This game was sloppy and dominated by five field goals and a special teams touchdown. Forsett should find more running room in Week 16 against the Texans provided he's healthy. Forsett has battled an ankle injury lately and briefly exited Sunday's game in the first half to be looked at by trainers. He'll be a borderline RB1/2. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He's now gone over 100 total yards in seven straight games. Amid concerns regarding his Week 14 hip bruise, Lacy got the start and dominated Buffalo's defense in the early going. By the 14:14 mark in the second quarter, he had eight rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Packers were forced to throw the football after falling behind, limiting Lacy's second-half rushing work. James Starks finished with just five touches to Lacy's 17. Lock in Lacy as an RB1 entering a Week 16 date with the Buccaneers. Rotoworld.com

He was cleared of a concussion on the sidelines, but only saw one more snap in a game the Chiefs were winning comfortably. Charles did not appear to be limited by his ankle and knee woes, but he failed to reach 100 yards or score a touchdown for the first time since Week 5. Charles will be a high-end starting option against the Steelers next week. Rotoworld.com

Lacy said there are hurdles he must clear, and that he doesn't want to put the Pack at a disadvantage if he "can't play effectively." Lacy said he has "no idea" if he'd be at risk of further injury if he played. All together, the comments paint a pessimistic picture of Lacy's Week 15 status, especially considering the Packers' notoriously conservative medical staff.
