    • Bowe (shoulder) misses another practice
      Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) remained sidelined Thursday.

      Advice: Back-to-back DNPs are never a good sign, but we're guessing Bowe is just saving his bullets for Sunday's must-win game against the Chargers. His status will be updated on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • Ivory (hamstring) pops up on injury report
      Chris Ivory was added to the Jets' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with a hamstring issue.

      Advice: Ivory must have tweaked something in Wednesday's session, as the Jets didn't practice on Thursday. Their injury report was just an approximation. Ivory has a long history of hamstring issues, but the "limited" tag — as opposed to "DNP" — suggests he'll be ready for Sunday's finale against the Dolphins. Ivory's status will be updated on Friday.

    • Report: Logan Thomas already benched
      The Arizona Republic reports the Cardinals have decided to bench Logan Thomas, and will go with Ryan Lindley for Sunday's finale against the 49ers.

      Advice: Thomas' tenure under center is over before it even began. Per AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban, the decision comes after the fourth-round rookie was "seriously shaky" in practice. It's a bit of a surprise after Lindley was an utter nightmare in last week's loss, but coach Bruce Arians must have been confident Thomas would be even worse. It's still possible Thomas could see action off the bench. The Cardinals will be in major trouble if Drew Stanton (knee) isn't ready for the postseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Cardinals going back to Ryan Lindley
      The Arizona Republic reports the Cardinals have decided to go back to Ryan Lindley for Sunday's finale against the 49ers.

      Advice: According to AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban, the decision comes after Logan Thomas got off to a "seriously shaky start at practice." It must have been as shaky as you can get, as Lindley appeared completely overwhelmed in Arizona's Week 16 loss to the Seahawks. Things won't be much easier against a 49ers team that will likely be going to bat for coach Jim Harbaugh in what is expected to be his final game at the helm. The news has little effect on the rest of Arizona's skill players, as the offense was going to be a disaster either way. Lindley can be completely ignored in DFS leagues for Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • No plans on how long Logan Thomas will play
      Speaking Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians said there are "no plans on how long" starting QB Logan Thomas plays at San Francisco Sunday.

      Advice: On Tuesday night, Arians said Thomas will at least play the first half. Now he's not even guaranteeing that. The bottom line is that the very raw Thomas will be on an extremely short leash and his range of production is vast. Even at minimum price on some DFS sites, it's very hard to trust Thomas in this spot. Rotoworld.com

    • Kelly to evaluate Foles this offseason
      Speaking Wednesday, coach Chip Kelly declined to give Nick Foles a full endorsement.

      Advice: Kelly said he'll go through a long evaluation process on all his players, including Foles. He's not going to name him his starter even though Foles is 14-4 over his last 18 starts under Kelly. That's because he was shaky this season, turning the ball over 13 times in just over seven games and completing 59.8 percent of his passes. The problem for the Eagles is that they're unlikely to find serious competition for Foles unless they mortgage their future to move up in the draft for Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston. Foles, heading into the final year of his rookie contract, is the heavy favorite to open 2015 as the Eagles' starting quarterback. Rotoworld.com

    • Pettine: Manziel to have 'chance to compete'
      Coach Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel (IR, hamstring) will "have the chance to compete" for the starting job in 2015.

      Advice: The Browns clearly aren't going to hand the starting gig to Manziel on a silver platter. How could they after he lost a camp battle to journeyman Brian Hoyer, appeared completely unprepared in his two starts and posted a 42.0 passer rating. Manziel knows he needs to grow up in a hurry if he's going to make an NFL impact. "It's a job for me now. I have to take it a lot more seriously than maybe I did at first," he admitted. With Hoyer currently an impending free agent, JFF's 2015 competition may come from outside the organization. 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

      Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is done for the season, Browns coach Mike Pettine announced Monday.

      Advice: It ends a highly disappointing first NFL season for Manziel, who failed to beat out career journeyman backup Brian Hoyer in training camp and fell flat on his face when given late-season opportunities to play. Manziel's arm is average, and he loses all semblance of zip when he doesn't deliver passes with proper technique. He is also not close to being an even passable pocket quarterback. Barring dramatic offseason improvement, we don't see Manziel as particularly likely to open 2015 as the Browns' starter. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Jennings was ruled out early in the week, suggesting he's no lock to return for the meaningless Week 17 finale. Andre Williams will carry the mail in a tough spot at St. Louis Sunday. The rest of the Giants inactives: CB Jaron Hosley, LB james Davidson, OL Adam Gettis, OG Eric Herman, DT Dominique Hamilton, TE Jerome Cunningham. Rotoworld.com

    • Manziel leaves game with injured hamstring
      Johnny Manziel exited Sunday's game after taking a hit from Panthers S Colin Jones in the second quarter.

      Advice: On a designed run in the second quarter, Johnny Football took a blow to the head from Jones. Brian Hoyer entered the game. Manziel ultimately went to the locker room with a towel on his head and surrounded by trainers. Officially, the Browns are saying Manziel suffered a hamstring injury. Before leaving, Manziel was 3-of-8 passing for 32 yards and three rushing yards. We don't expect Manziel to reenter Sunday's game. Rotoworld.com

    • Steven Jackson suffers quad injury Week 16
      Steven Jackson exited Week 16 against the Saints with a quad injury.

      Advice: Jackson's body language on the sideline did not look good, and he was ruled out for the game shortly after halftime. Devonta Freeman has entered the game at running back for the Falcons, and Jacquizz Rodgers should see some extra snaps as well. Jackson had four carries for nine yards before exiting. Rotoworld.com

    • Stanton might back up Lindley vs. Seahawks
      Cardinals coach Bruce Arians suggested Friday that Drew Stanton (knee, doubtful) could be active for Sunday's game versus Seattle to serve as Ryan Lindley's backup.

      Advice: Arians confirmed Lindley will start. Stanton is dealing with ACL and MCL sprains in his knee, but the Cardinals obviously have very little confidence in rookie Logan Thomas. We still don't see any scenario where Stanton plays. Rotoworld.com

      Despite Drew Stanton's (knee) "limited" return to practice, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed Friday that Ryan Lindley will start at quarterback in Week 16 against the Seahawks.

      Drew Stanton (sprained ACL, MCL) "did nothing" during the portion of practice that is open to the media Friday.

      Advice: The Cardinals listed Stanton as "limited" in Thursday's practice, but there's no way he's playing on Sunday Night Football. Perhaps the Cards were trying to create the illusion he might start ahead of a division game versus Seattle. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Rivera left open the possibility of Williams being active on game day as an "emergency back," but he's not going to be a factor unless other running backs get injured during the game. Jonathan Stewart is an RB2 against the Browns' weak run defense. Mike Tolbert will be second in line for backfield work. Rotoworld.com

    • Drew Stanton surprisingly back at practice
      Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (sprained ACL, MCL) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

      Advice: It's an eye-brow raiser, but there's still little reason to believe Stanton will be ready to return just 10 days after spraining his knee. The Cardinals are likely just trying to confuse the situation for the Seahawks. It is a sign, however, that Week 17 could be a realistic possibility. Stanton's status will be updated on Friday, but we fully expect Ryan Lindley to be under center for Week 16. Rotoworld.com

      DeAngelo Williams (hand) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Barring a setback, D-Will should return after a two-game absence, though the Panthers aren't sure how he'll fare in the passing game. 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

      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.

      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

      FOX Philadelphia's Howard Eskin reports Nick Foles' collarbone is just 70 percent healed.

      Advice: Eskin's report has been seconded by FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo. It means there's no way Foles will return before the end of the regular season, and that he'll likely be questionable for a potential Wild Card appearance. The Eagles' hopes of a division championship are pinned to the scattershot arm and decision-making of Mark Sanchez. Rotoworld.com

      Ryan Lindley will be the Cardinals' Week 16 starter at quarterback.

      Advice: Lindley's four games of starting experience earn him the nod over fourth-round rookie Logan Thomas. However, coach Bruce Arians continues to insist he'll install a "package" of plays for Thomas against the Seahawks. It makes essentially no difference who gets the call against Seattle. Arians' job will be to put as little as possible on Lindley's plate. Depending on how the game unfolds, Lindley could easily be benched for Thomas. Things are highly likely to get ugly for the 11-3 Cardinals. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: What Coughlin did have to say wasn't exactly encouraging. "Whether or not we're all the way back to Square 1, I don't know that." At best, Jennings will be limited for Week 16. At worst, he's played his final down of the season. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Jennings suiting up against the Rams, while Andre Williams is a must add on the off chance he's still available. Rotoworld.com

      Coach Chip Kelly announced Nick Foles (collarbone) has already been ruled out for Week 16 against the Redskins.

      Advice: A Week 16 return was always viewed as a best-case scenario for Foles.

Consider Foles week to week at this point. Rotoworld.com

      Coach Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel will start Week 16 against the Panthers.

      Advice: It also sounded like Manziel will be the starting quarterback through Week 17. That comes as no surprise. It will give the coaching staff three games of tape on Manziel and allow him to get his feet wet before 2015. Johnny Football finished with about as horrific a stat line one could imagine in his debut, but Pettine placed much of the blame on the players around Manziel. He'll be a high-risk QB2 against Carolina, but one with plenty of upside. The 7-7 Browns are out of the playoff picture. Rotoworld.com
