      John Carlson (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    • Quizz expected to lead Week 17 backfield
      The Atlanta Journal-Sentinel expects Jacquizz Rodgers -- not Devonta Freeman -- to handle the "bulk of the carries" in Week 17 against the Panthers.

      Advice: Quizz is also expected to start. We're betting on a 60:40 or 55:45 split between Rodgers and Freeman, with Rodgers playing a bit more and handling a few more touches. Freeman offers more upside because he has more big-play ability, but in a season-long league neither would be considered more than a flex option. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Devonta Freeman will rotate in. Rodgers is a superior pass protector and will likely play more snaps than Freeman, just as he did following Steven Jackson's Week 16 injury. Freeman possesses more upside, but "Quizz" may be a better bet for usage. The situation is a tricky one to navigate in Week 17 fantasy leagues. Rodgers is priced cheaper on daily sites than Freeman.

    • Giants expect Donnell to make 2015 leap
      The Giants expect Larry Donnell to take another big leap forward in 2015.

      Advice: Per ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Giants believe in Donnell as a long-term starting tight end. They think he'll "develop into a dynamic player who is a huge part of Ben McAdoo's offense." Donnell got off to a torrid start to the season, scoring six touchdowns the first 11 weeks. But the past five games, Donnell has averaged just three catches for 32 yards per game with zero scores. With Victor Cruz returning to full health behind Odell Beckham in 2015, Donnell should be no higher than No. 3 in line for targets. He'll have to make his hay in the red zone. Rotoworld.com

      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Drew Stanton (knee) underwent surgery to clear an infection and may miss the remainder of the season.

      Advice: The infection was discovered Wednesday, and Stanton immediately underwent surgery. Prior to that, he had been recovering well from his sprained MCL and ACL with an eye on returning for the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. The Cardinals will be forced to ride Ryan Lindley as a far as he can take them, which will likely be one-and-done in the postseason. It's a shame for an 11-4 team. Rotoworld.com

In his first season with Tampa Bay, he caught 31 balls for 380 yards and two touchdowns behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson before being placed on I.R. with an ankle injury. It must not be very serious. With Jackson's future up in the air with the Bucs, Murphy could potentially see an increased offensive role opposite Evans in 2015. Rotoworld.com

      Ronnie Hillman (foot) practiced in full Wednesday for the first time since his Week 10 injury.

      Advice: Hillman practiced on a limited basis last week, but was ruled inactive on Monday night against the Bengals. 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) 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

Given Jackson's age (31) and history of soft tissue injuries, we'll consider him very questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Panthers. If Jackson sits, Freeman and passing back Rodgers would form a committee. Freeman is the preferred add as he'd handle more base back duties. Rotoworld.com

It was probably the most impressive run by a Falcons back this season, but the coaching staff still limited Freeman's touches even with Steven Jackson (quad) sidelined.

      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

    • Ronnie Hillman (foot) limited on Thursday
      Ronnie Hillman (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Hillman remains day to day. Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) sat out Thursday's practice, leaving C.J. Anderson's Week 16 backup up in the air. Rotoworld.com

    • LeGarrette Blount limited on Thursday
      LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Blount's Week 16 availability isn't in doubt, but his role is muddled with the re-emergence of Jonas Gray. Blount will be a touchdown-dependent FLEX play for the fantasy finals. Players who are still alive in season-long leagues need to do better. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde (ankle) doesn't practice Thursday
      49ers RB Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined Thursday.

      Advice: Hyde has already said he'd need a "miracle" to suit up against the Chargers on Saturday. With Frank Gore (concussion) also looking shaky, the 49ers could be forced to roll with Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith at running back. Rotoworld.com

    • D-Will gets in another 'limited' practice
      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

    • Broncos hoping Hillman returns to field soon
      The Broncos hope to have Ronnie Hillman (foot) back "if not this week at Cincinnati then in the season finale."

      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. Even if Hillman plays Monday night at Cincinnati, it would be a surprise if he handled more than 7-9 touches. 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

    • 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

    • 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
