      Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

      Advice: Kearse is expected to miss at least one week with a Grade-1 hamstring strain and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game. Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin in his absence. Rotoworld.com

      Reggie Wayne says he continues to battle his triceps injury and will need surgery in the offseason.

      Advice: He's likely dealing with a slight tear. Wayne's play has fallen off a cliff recently. He's averaging just three catches for 18 yards and zero touchdowns the past five games. Unbelievably, Hakeem Nicks is actually a better receiver than Wayne right now. The Colts would be wise to put more on the plates of Donte Moncrief and Coby Fleener as pass catchers behind T.Y. Hilton in the playoffs. 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 to offense to get some confidence back before the Wild Card round.

    • Fitz's 2015 cap number would be gargantuan
      Larry Fitzgerald's $23.6 million cap number next season would take up approximately 17 percent of the Cardinals' cap space.

      Advice: There's a zero percent chance Fitz will be back at that current number, but Profootballtalk has reported he won't be released. That means the sides are either already anticipating some sort of middle-ground agreement, or the Cardinals are attempting to keep any vestige of trade leverage. Fitz is still an effective player, but is no longer the vertical dynamo who earned an eight-year, $128.5 million deal in August 2011. Both sides know this. There's a good chance cooler heads prevail with a revised deal to keep Fitz in Arizona. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: "Being the third receiver, I do think I’ve done enough (for an extension)," Wright said. "But it’s kind of not up to me." The No. 118 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Wright is headed into the final year of his rookie contract, where he'll make just $660,000. Although Wright has stepped up to the tune of 39/565/2 as Cordarrelle Patterson has been banished to the bench, he's not a front-burner extension candidate. He'd have to be amenable to a team-friendly deal. Rotoworld.com

      The Jets expect Percy Harvin (ribs) to miss Week 17.

      Advice: Harvin missed Tuesday's practice. Per coach Rex Ryan, Harvin "can't do a whole lot." Missing Sunday's finale would mean Harvin heads into the offseason sporting just a 51/483/1 line as a receiver through 13 2014 games. He's added a 33/202/1 slash as a runner, but it's not exactly production befitting of Harvin's $10.5 million 2015 base salary. With GM John Idzik's job in danger, it's possible his replacement will be inclined to move on from Harvin. 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.

      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. Bryant leads the league with 14 touchdown receptions this season. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Wilson again played every snap outside of a brief absence to work through a knee bruise. But he didn't get any deep shots, instead consistently working underneath on slants and comeback routes. He dropped two of his 10 targets. Still, we've seen enough from Wilson to think he can at least be a solid No. 3 receiver in this league. The Bears wrap the season against the Vikings next week. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Gordon had an early six-yard reception overturned when replay showed the ball hit the ground. He came back to record a handful of short receptions when Brian Hoyer entered the game in the second quarter, replacing Johnny Manziel (hamstring). Gordon will close out a suspension-shortened third NFL season against the Ravens' leaky secondary in Week 17. It's probably good news for Gordon's statistical outlook that Hoyer is back under center.

      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

      Advice: Harvin went down midway through the third quarter, and was ruled out early in the fourth. The injury-prone wideout had four catches for 44 yards before going down, adding two rushes for one yard. With only one game left, it's possible Harvin has played not only his final snap of the season, but as a Jet. Rotoworld.com

      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) will try to play Week 16 against the Cowboys but is a "longshot."

      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

      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

    • Reggie Wayne could play limited snaps
      The Indy Star suggests Reggie Wayne (triceps) might have his snap count reduced over the final two weeks of the regular season.

      Advice: The Colts already backed off Wayne a bit in Weeks 14 and 15, playing him on just 75.6 percent of the snaps. Now they've clinched the AFC South and have almost no shot at a first-round bye. So resting Wayne in order to get him 100 percent for the Wild Card game makes plenty of sense. Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks will have roles against the Cowboys Sunday, with Moncrief ticketed for far more snaps. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen taking things 'week by week'
      Keenan Allen says he's taking things "week by week" with his broken right collarbone.

      Advice: According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, Allen is "not considered a candidate for injured reserve." He has yet to undergo surgery, and "no such procedure is currently planned." It's interesting Allen and the Chargers are apparently so optimistic about an injury that typically sidelines players for the better part of two months, but we strongly suspect he's played his final snap of the 2014-15 campaign. Allen should be formally ruled out for Saturday's game against the 49ers some time in the next 48 hours. With Allen out, Seyi Ajirotutu will serve as the Bolts' No. 3 receiver behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen diagnosed with broken collarbone
      Keenan Allen has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone in addition to his ankle injury, and is likely done for the regular season.

      Advice: Strangely, the Chargers have yet to formally rule Allen for Week 16, but barring a Bolts Super Bowl run, he's almost certainly played his final snap of the 2014-15 season. It appears the only reason for hope is that Allen briefly played through the injury in Week 15. It's a massive blow for the Chargers' scuffling offense, as Allen had really come on of late, catching 49 passes over his past eight games. He'll close the book on his second regular season the owner of a 77/783/4 line. Not a bad year, but a major downgrade from Allen's rookie campaign. He averaged just 10.2 yards per catch after posting a 14.7 mark in 2013. Nevertheless, Allen is only 22, and an elite route runner. He remains a strong hold as a WR2 in dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Ds, not Sanchez, to blame for Maclin decline?
      Coach Chip Kelly blamed defensive adjustments, not Mark Sanchez, for the decline in Jeremy Maclin's production.

      Advice: Maclin averaged 5.6 catches, 98.7 yards and 1.0 touchdowns on 10.3 targets in Nick Foles' eight starts. He's at 5.5 catches, 69.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns on 8.0 targets in Sanchez's six starts. "He was running post right by people, and we're not seeing that anymore," Kelly said. "If you watch the tape, the safeties are a lot deeper." That may be the case, but Sanchez's rapport with Jordan Matthews and a tendency to keep the ball between the hashes haven't helped. The good news is that Maclin gets a Redskins secondary that loves to give up big plays Saturday. Rotoworld.com

    • Marquess Wilson goes 3-16-1 in MNF defeat
      Marquess Wilson caught three passes for 16 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

      Advice: Filling in as the No. 2 receiver behind Alshon Jeffery, Wilson was targeted six times. His one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter came on a little drag route in the front of the end zone. Most notably in the fantasy community, the score won Drew Dinkmeyer of RotoExperts $1 million in a DFS tournament. Wilson could have had a bigger night, but Jay Cutler missed him deep on what would have been a long touchdown. Wilson will be a WR3/4 next week against the Lions. 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.

The highlight was a back-shoulder throw on Flowers that went for a 28-yard score, his 11th of the season (to go with eight 100-yard days). Although the Broncos are shifting toward more of a run-heavy gameplan, Thomas saw 11 of Peyton Manning's 20 throws in this one and will be an elite WR1 against the 49ers in Week 16. Rotoworld.com
