    • DeAngelo Williams probable for Week 17
      DeAngelo Williams (hand) is probable for Week 17 against the Falcons.

      Advice: He'll make his return from a broken hand, but the Panthers remain concerned about Williams' ability in pass protection. Jonathan Stewart should continue to see heavy work, although Williams' reinsertion in the lineup is always concerning for Stewart owners. Rotoworld.com

    • S-Jax officially questionable for Week 17
      Steven Jackson (quad) is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Panthers.

      Advice: The Falcons try to be pretty secretive with their injury designations, but most signs point to Jackson missing the all-important finale vs. Carolina. Devonta Freeman is expected to get the bulk of the touches in the backfield with Jacquizz Rodgers mixing in as the change-up back. Freeman has some RB2/3 appeal. Rotoworld.com

    • James White could play Vereen role in 2015
      ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss thinks James White could be the team's pass-catching back in 2015.

      Advice: With Shane Vereen scheduled to become a free agent in March, White could make the leap in 2015. The 130th pick in May's draft was standout in OTAs and minicamp, but couldn't put it together in the preseason and has played just 27 offensive snaps as a rookie. The Patriots are still high on White. He's a player to target in Dynasty leagues with his value at the lowest it's been. Rotoworld.com

      Chris Ivory was added to the Jets' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with a hamstring issue.

The Broncos often make their injured players practice for two weeks before activating them. So we'd consider Hillman on track to play against the Raiders in Week 17, serving as one of C.J. Anderson's backups. It's hard to see Hillman stealing anything more than 3-5 touches from Anderson, who has played at an extremely high level in his six starts. Rotoworld.com

      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

For the season, Tate's YPC sits at a dreadful 3.11. Although Tate is only 26, he's looked used up. Tate has a long history of minor injuries.

It's possible they'll try to do so again ahead of the playoffs, but we wouldn't be surprised if Tate passes through the wire unclaimed. Rotoworld.com

      Giovani Bernard rushed for 36 yards on eight carries in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos, adding five catches for 45 yards and one touchdown.

      Advice: The past two weeks, Bernard has been doing more with less. And that's how it was in 2013. The Bengals realized Bernard isn't a workhorse back, and he's taken a side seat next to 1A Jeremy Hill. Hill out-touched Bernard 22-13, but both did work with their looks. Bernard looked like his rookie self on his 22-yard touchdown, catching the ball at the line of scrimmage and shedding a tackle before making another defender miss on his way to the end zone. The past two weeks, he's managed 184 total yards on 31 touches. Bernard and Hill are going to have to carry the Bengals in the playoffs. They'll wrap up Week 17 against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com

      Jeremy Hill rushed for 147 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries in the Bengals' 37-28, Week 16 win over the Broncos on Monday night.

      Advice: Hill was the star of the show on offense, while the Cincinnati defense carried the Bengals to victory by intercepting Peyton Manning four times. Hill got another start in the Bengals' backfield and took his third carry to the house for an 85-yard touchdown. It was one of the more impressive runs of the season. Hill showed amazing stop-start ability on the scamper, slowing down for blocks and immediately turning on the jets. Another great run was a simple two-yard pickup on 4th-and-1 where he was initially stopped behind the line but powered through to move the sticks. The Bengals could make a run if they lean on Hill and the defense plays like it did on Monday. They'll wrap up the regular season against Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com

Murray was clearly hampered by the hand injury. He carried the ball almost exclusively in his right hand and seemed wary of using his hands to block in pass protection, instead attempting to essentially tackle the blitzing defender.

    • Chris Ivory rushes for 53 yards vs. Patriots
      Chris Ivory rushed 11 times for 53 yards in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

      Advice: He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Ivory found himself in an even timeshare with Chris Johnson, who also touched the ball 11 times. Ivory enters Week 17 needing 95 yards from scrimmage to reach 1,000 on the season. It would be the first 1K campaign of the fifth-year pro's career. Rotoworld.com

    • Forsett manages just 19 yards on 10 carries
      Justin Forsett rushed for just 19 yards on 10 carries in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Texans.

      Advice: Back-to-back horrible games for Forsett after rushing for just 48 yards on 16 carries in Week 15 against the Jaguars. The slip-ups came at the worst time for Forsett owners. He caught four passes for 13 yards but couldn't find any room to operate. Forsett also appeared to re-injure his ankle/knee early in the third quarter. He missed a few snaps before returning to the field. Forsett was a nice surprise in 2014 but ended the season on a low note. He and the Ravens host the Browns in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Jamaal Charles totals 77 yards vs. Steelers
      Jamaal Charles rushed nine times for 29 yards in the Chiefs' Week 16 loss to the Steelers, adding five receptions for 48 additional yards.

      Advice: Charles also lost a fumble. With everything on the line for his team, coach Andy Reid gave Charles just 14 touches in a game where Alex Smith chucked up 45 passes. It was another extremely disappointing game plan as the Chiefs lost for the fourth time in five games. Charles' fumble was a dubious call, as replay appeared to show his knee touching down before the ball came out. Charles and the Chiefs will square off with the Chargers in Week 17, where they'll need a victory to have any shot at the postseason. Rotoworld.com

      Joique Bell rushed 13 times for 74 yards with one touchdown and caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's 20-14 Week 16 win at Chicago.

      Advice: Bell was benched for the entire first quarter due to some kind of team rules violation. But it was business as usual after he got his first snap with 12:36 left in the second quarter. Bell was the feature back, hogging clock-killing and red-zone work even though Reggie Bush was looking extremely spry. The highlight was a madden-style 17-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that gave the Lions a lead they would hold. Earlier, Matthew Stafford barely missed Bell on a wheel route that would have gone for a touchdown. The Lions close the regular season at Green Bay next week, a game that will decide the NFC North.

On Sunday, we expect to see Lance Dunbar handle a few more snaps than usual in pass-pro situations. The Cowboys may also give Joseph Randle a heavier dose of change-up work.

      Advice: The highlight of the evening was a first-quarter run in which Gore rumbled through several Chargers on his way to a 52-yard touchdown. Gore racked up 129 yards before halftime and looked unstoppable early in the game. He slowed down in the second half, but Gore still had enough juice to post his highest single-game rushing total since 2009. Gore will likely struggle Week 17 against the Cardinals' stout rush defense, but he showed on Saturday he still has plenty left in the tank. Rotoworld.com

One week after coach Ken Whisenhunt decided to let Shonn Greene get his "revenge" against the Jets, Sankey was reinstalled as the chairman of Tennessee's committee, but was again unimpressive. Sankey showed speed, but no wiggle, running right into defenders and then getting taken down. He averaged a mere 3.1 yards per carry, and has surpassed 4.0 just once in his past 11 games.

Either way, Murray continues to get reps, and has even been catching passes with his left hand wrapped up.

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.

    • Jamaal Charles limited on Wednesday
      Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) was limited Wednesday.

      Advice: The Chiefs removed Charles late in Sunday's win over the Raiders, but he's expected to play through his knee and ankle injuries. Charles is a high-end RB1 for Week 16 against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde needs a miracle to play Saturday
      Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) said he does not expect to play in Saturday's game against the Chargers barring a miracle.

      Advice: Despite receiving good news following an MRI, it doesn't look like Hyde is going to be able to go on this short week. It's terrible timing, as Frank Gore (concussion) is in serious doubt as well. It's certainly possible the 49ers will be forced to roll with Alfonso Smith and Phillip Tanner at running back Saturday.

    • Hyde, Gore both remain sidelined Wednesday
      Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Frank Gore (concussion) also remained out on Wednesday. The 49ers are on a short week with a game against the Chargers on Saturday night. With both Hyde and Gore uncertain for Week 16, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday. Alfonso Smith and Tanner are the lone healthy backs on the roster. Rotoworld.com

    • Frank Gore (concussion) still sidelined Wed.
      Frank Gore (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Gore says he feels normal, but has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist. With Gore and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) uncertain for Saturday's game against the Chargers, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • LeGarrette Blount limited on Wednesday
      LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Blount was out-snapped and out-touched by Jonas Gray last week but did rush for 17 yards and one touchdown on eight carries. We'd tentatively expect Blount to play against the Jets, but he's barely on the RB3 radar. Rotoworld.com

      DeAngelo Williams (hand) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Williams is on track to return this week after sitting out the last two games. He'll cut into Jonathan Stewart's workload, but won't be a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Mathews still not practicing Wednesday
      Ryan Mathews (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Mathews reportedly "wasn't close to playing" last Sunday. With the Chargers now on a short week and playing Saturday night against the 49ers, Mathews' chances of suiting up appear slim. It'll be Branden Oliver and Donald Brown. Rotoworld.com

    • Rashad Jennings not practicing Wednesday
      Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Jennings played one offensive snap last week against the Redskins and aggravated his previous ankle injury on the play. If Jennings can't play -- and it seems unlikely that he will -- Andre Williams will handle a big bulk of the carries against the Rams. Williams would come into play as a back-end RB2. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde misses practice Tuesday
      Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) did not practice Tuesday.

      Advice: Hyde hurt both his ankle and back on a third-quarter play against the Seahawks. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the roster. We'd consider Hyde more likely than Gore to play Saturday night against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    • Gore, Hyde both miss 49ers practice Tuesday
      Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) both did not practice Tuesday.

      Advice: The 49ers weren't required to submit an injury report Tuesday, but they take on the Chargers on Saturday night, so both players are on a short week. Gore visited the doctor on Tuesday as part of the league's concussion protocol, while Hyde hurt his ankle and back in the third quarter last Sunday. Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the 49ers roster. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Mathews (ankle) not practicing Tuesday
      Ryan Mathews (ankle) sat out of Tuesday's practice.

      Advice: The Chargers are playing the 49ers on Saturday, so they're starting their practice week on Tuesday. Per reporter Michael Gehlken, Mathews wasn't "particularly close" to suiting up for Sunday's loss to the Broncos. That would suggest he's not a good bet to return for Week 16, which would leave Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Ronnie Brown to again form a committee. It would be a situation to avoid against the 49ers' stout run defense. Mathews' status will be updated on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Whiz says Sankey not in doghouse
      Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey is not in the doghouse despite getting out-touched 17-4 by Shonn Greene in Week 15.

      Advice: Whisenhunt made the infamous "Revenge Narrative" a real thing against the Jets. "I felt he had some extra motivation going against one of his former teams. ... Sometimes you have to get that feeling and go with it," Whiz said. Sankey has been thoroughly unimpressive as a rookie, but giving a borderline NFL talent like Greene the work on a 2-12 team is inexcusable. The nation will be forced to watch the Titans when they play on Thursday night at Jacksonville. Rotoworld.com

    • Justin Forsett blames stacked box on showing
      Justin Forsett blamed a stacked box for his disappointing 16-48-0 line against the Jaguars Sunday.

      Advice: Forsett's 48 yards were his lowest since Week 9. "Their mindset coming in was to stop the run. ... They were a physical bunch. They've got a great front seven and they did a good job. The box and safeties were down, but it was a good challenge for us." Forsett also appeared to tweak his troublesome ankle in the first half. Practice reports will be worth watching, but he should bounce back as a high-end RB2 against the Texans in Week 16. Rotoworld.com
