    • Steven Jackson officially out for Week 17
      Steven Jackson (quad) is inactive for Week 17 against the Panthers.

      Advice: As expected. Julio Jones (oblique) is active in another non-surprise. Jacquizz Rodgers will get the start for the Falcons at running back, playing on passing downs and in high-pressure situations. Devonta Freeman is the better bet for early-down carries. Also inactive for the Falcons are QB Sean Renfree, C Charles Godfrey, CB Ricardo Allen, LB Tyler Starr, OT Jonathan Scott, and DE Stansly Maponga. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Williams was listed as probable, so he's essentially a healthy scratch. He's coming off a broken hand, but the Panthers expressed some concern over his ability to pick up the blitz. Jonathan Stewart will carry the load once again for Carolina. Also inactive for the Panthers are CB James Dockery, S Robert Lester, LB A.J.

    • Andrew Luck plays just one half Week 17
      Andrew Luck played one half in Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee, going 10-of-16 for 160 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

      Advice: With their offense sputtering (Luck totaled 296 passing yards in the last two games combined), the Colts chose to play all their starters in this meaningless game. The decision should give the unit a bit of confidence heading into next week's Wild Card game. Luck, who was fantasy's No. 1 quarterback through 16 weeks, finishes his third NFL season by setting career-highs in completions (380), completion percentage (61.6), yards (4,761) and touchdown passes (40). He's just 25 years old. Rotoworld.com

    • Vincent Jackson (groin) doubtful to return
      Vincent Jackson was forced the Bucs' Week 17 game against the Saints with a groin injury, and is doubtful to return.

      Advice: V-Jax went down midway through the first quarter, and the quick "doubtful" tag is a strong indication he will not return. V-Jax had one catch for 11 yards before going down, bringing his season line to an uninspiring 70/1,002/2. Jackson has now cleared 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons as a Buc, but watched his touchdown totals fall from eight to seven to two. Two weeks shy of his 32nd birthday, V-Jax is now clearly behind Mike Evans on the depth chart. V-Jax remains one of the league's best pure deep threats, but his days of no doubt WR1/2 status in fantasy are over. Jackson is due a hefty $9.777 million in 2015, but should remain in Tampa.

      According to FOX's Jay Glazer, DeAngelo Williams (hand) will not play in Sunday's Week 17 game at Atlanta.

      Advice: It's a bit of a surprise as Williams was listed as probable. But the Panthers coaches aren't comfortable with his blocking and they also seem to finally realize that saddling up Jonathan Stewart as a true feature back is their optimal play. Expect another 20-plus touches for the red-hot Stewart in Sunday's game for the NFC South crown. Rotoworld.com

Su'a-Filo, the Texans' second-round pick, has been a routine healthy scratch the past few weeks after playing just 130 snaps scattered across the first three months.

    • DeAngelo Williams may not return to Carolina
      ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes the Panthers will move on from RB DeAngelo Williams following the season.

      Advice: After years of struggling under the dead-money weight of Williams' contract, the Panthers will finally be in a position to cut loose the aging running back this offseason. Williams is only due $1.85 million in base salary in 2015, but carries a cap hit of $6.33 million for next season. The cap-strapped Panthers could save around $2 million on the 2015 cap by designating Williams a post-June 1 cut. With his play on the field slipping, it is an easy move for Carolina to make.

      The Boston Globe's Ben Volin believes Rob Gronkowski will receive "little-to-no playing time" in the Patriots' season finale against the Bills.

      Advice: With nothing on the line Week 17, it makes little sense for the Patriots to play their dynamic but oft-injured tight end. Gronkowski could very well put up a goose egg Week 17, making him unplayable in both seasonal and daily formats. Tim Wright will likely see a bump in snaps with Gronk limited, but would be a poor option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Rotoworld.com

      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

      Advice: Hoyer is day to day and hasn't been ruled out for Week 17, but should be considered highly questionable. The Browns signed Tyler Thigpen on Tuesday and are expected to give starter's reps to UDFA Connor Shaw this week Rotoworld.com

    • Pack aren't too worried about Rodgers' calf
      Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers was "very upbeat and positive about" his strained calf Monday.

      Advice: Rodgers' calf pull isn't overly serious, but it was bad enough that McCarthy had to scrap some bootlegs and movement plays during Sunday's win at Tampa. Although the MVP candidate remains sore, Rodgers should be closer to 100 percent once Sunday's showdown with the Lions rolls around. Rotoworld.com

    • Emmanuel Sanders goes 6-70-2 in MNF loss
      Emmanuel Sanders caught six passes for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Bengals on Monday night.

      Advice: He was targeted just seven times, finishing third on the team behind Demaryius Thomas (13) and C.J. Anderson (10). Sanders, however, did the most damage with his looks. He scored his four-yard touchdown on a quick slant out of a trips set to the left. His second touchdown came from five yards away. In between those grabs, Sanders reeled in a one-handed 33-yard catch with Terence Newman mugging him on the right sideline. Sanders proved to be one of the best bargains of the season. He and the Broncos wrap up the season with the Raiders in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Playoff-bound Colts to play starters in Wk 17
      Coach Chuck Pagano stated Monday that the Colts will play their starters in Week 17 against the Titans, despite the fact that they can't improve or hinder their playoff seeding much.

      Advice: Pagano, understandably, believes the Colts "need to build some steam" entering the postseason after Sunday's 42-7 loss to Dallas. Indianapolis is locked into either the No. 3 or No. 4 seed in the AFC. They've obviously locked up the AFC South, but can't get a first-round bye. Andrew Luck & Co. will be in play for fantasy leagues still going on in Week 17, and in DFS formats. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: In theory, the Cowboys are still in the mix for a first-round bye, but they would need a series of inexplicable events to unfold. That means that, for all intents and purposes, they're locked into the No. 3 seed and don't have a ton to play for against Washington. We wouldn't be surprised if Tony Romo played only 2-3 quarters, and if DeMarco Murray (hand) was limited even further. Rotoworld.com

ESPN's Vaughn McClure has reported Jackson is tentatively expected to suit up for Sunday's winner-take-all finale against the Panthers, but considering Jackson's age and injury history, it's far from a sure thing. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

      CBS' Jason La Canfora reports Brian Hoyer suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Panthers, and is day to day.

      Advice: The team has yet to confirm, but it would up the chances Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is back under center for Week 17. That, of course, would depend on Johnny Football's health. The Browns don't have a third quarterback, so it's uncertain what they'd do if neither Hoyer nor Manziel could go. The most likely option would be promoting Connor Shaw from the practice squad.

      Rob Gronkowski played on every offensive snap in Week 16, the first time he's done that this season.

      Advice: It puts a bow on a remarkable rehab off Gronk's ACL and MCL reconstruction 12 months ago. Proving more beast than human, he's played in every single game this season and has posted an 82-1,124-12 line. Gronkowski is fantasy's No. 1 scoring tight end by a whopping margin over No. 2 Antonio Gates and No. 3 Jimmy Graham. His status for Week 17 could depend on the result of Monday Night Football. If the Bengals can upset the Broncos, the Patriots clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com

      According to ESPN's Vaughn McClure, Steven Jackson (quad) should be back for the Week 17 game against the Panthers.

      Advice: Jackson strained his quad during the second quarter of Sunday's win at New Orleans and didn't return. That allowed Devonta Freeman to get some extra touches, turning one of the them into a 31-yard touchdown run and adding a 3-48-0 line as a receiver. The 31-year-old Jackson is averaging 3.72 YPC this season as the Falcons' feature back. If the Falcons beat the Panthers, they'll win the NFC South with a 7-9 record. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Rodgers tweaked calf in win over Bucs
      Aaron Rodgers strained a calf muscle during Sunday's Week 16 win at Tampa.

      Advice: Rodgers suffered the pull during the second series, limiting him a bit throughout the game. He still finished 31-of-40 for 318 yards with a touchdown even though Mike McCarthy admitted he had to change his play-calling a bit to keep Rodgers in the pocket. "It got really tight about halftime," Rodgers said. "Came in and got a little treatment and it loosened up a tad but it was still pretty tight, and I had hard time running." Rodgers will be fine for Week 17's NFC North showdown with the Lions, the question will just be how close he is to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com

      Tony Romo completed 18-of-20 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns in the Cowboys' NFC East clinching win Week 16 against the Colts

      Advice: The Colts could do nothing to stop Romo, who at one point completed 16 straight passes. Indianapolis was able to hit Romo once all game, and with basically unlimited time Romo was able to pick apart their secondary, setting a club record with a 90 percent completion percentage. Romo now has 10 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in December. The Cowboys still have an outside shot at a first-round bye, but they could choose to limit Romo in the regular season finale against Washington. Rotoworld.com

      Andrew Luck was pulled in the third quarter of the Colts' blowout loss to the Cowboys.

      Advice: Luck finishes the game completing 15-of-22 passes for 109 yards and two interceptions. The stat line is terrible, but Luck was not as bad as the numbers indicate. The Colts' banged up offensive line struggled to protect Luck, and his pass catchers did not help the situation by dropping several passes. OC Pep Hamilton has to shoulder some of the blame as well as he failed to get Donte Moncrief involved and instead decided to run three screen passes to Hakeem Nicks. Luck has not played well lately, but he is a decent bet to get back on track against the Titans Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Arian Foster rushed for 96 yards on 25 carries in the Texans' 25-13, Week 16 win over the Ravens.

      Advice: He added 23 yards on one catch and even threw a five-yard touchdown as the Texans' do-it-all offensive centerpiece on Sunday. With Case Keenum drawing the start six days after signing off the Rams' practice squad, the Texans leaned heavily on Foster. He took snaps out of the Wildcat -- albeit without much success -- and tossed the Texans' only touchdown to C.J. Fiedorowicz on a toss play to the right. Foster and the 8-7 Texans have a faint pulse in the AFC playoff picture. They'll host the Jaguars in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He added two scrambles for 19 yards. Hoyer entered Sunday's game in the second quarter after Johnny Manziel suffered a hamstring injury. He took three sacks among 16 dropbacks, but did lead two scoring drives, one ending in a field goal and the other a Jordan Cameron 81-yard touchdown. Manziel seems unlikely to play in the Browns' regular season finale, which would give Hoyer the start against Baltimore. Rotoworld.com

      Aaron Rodgers completed 31-of-40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Rodgers suffered an ankle injury on a sack, but didn't miss any time. It was another disappointing start after he was held without a touchdown last week.
