      Advice: Richardson missed Thursday's practice, but was upgraded to full on Friday. He's coming off a 3/30/1 line last week. Richardson will continue to start in three-wide sets with Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin. Rotoworld.com

      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are leaning toward starting Case Keenum at quarterback for Week 16 against the Ravens.

      Advice: As expected. Keenum simply knows the offense better as a whole than Thad Lewis. Keenum spent the summer with the Texans, while Lewis was signed just a few weeks ago. Neither Keenum nor Lewis would be on the fantasy radar. The Ravens may have a suspect secondary, but they have a dominant pass rush. Rotoworld.com

      Speaking Thursday, Eddie Lacy (eye) said he's "very blind" and may have to wear goggles for Week 16 against the Bucs.

      Advice: Lacy's eye is irritated due to an issue with his contact lens. He hopes to be able to wear contacts for the game Sunday, but left the door open for him to pull off the Eric Dickerson look. Either way, Lacy's status for Week 16 isn't in serious question, though he and James Starks could split work more evenly than last week.

      CBS' Jason La Canfora says "every expectation" is that Case Keenum will start Sunday's game against the Ravens.

      Advice: Bill O'Brien isn't tipping his hand between Keenum and Thad Lewis. But Keenum makes more sense as he was with the team throughout the offseason program and training camp before losing his backup job to Tom Savage and Ryan Mallett. However, Keenum was brutal in four preseason games going 28-of-52 (53.8%) for 254 yards (4.88 YPA) with zero touchdowns and two interceptions, good for a 51.3 passer rating. He's not even a two-quarterback league option against a Ravens defense that can cover their secondary woes with a swarming front seven. Rotoworld.com

The problem was that Hopkins saw Vontae Davis' side too often and Tom Savage was overwhelmed in a relief role. A Week 16 matchup against the Ravens is tasty on paper, but Johnson's likely return and Savage's woes make Hopkins a risky WR3 play despite Sunday's volume. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: LaFell now has just two scores over his past five games, but has averaged 5.4/61 in the process. Still drawing 8-10 weekly targets, LaFell will be locked in as a WR2 against the Jets' undermanned secondary in Week 16. Rotoworld.com

    • Eddie Lacy only Packer to show up Sunday
      Eddie Lacy rushed 15 times for 97 yards and a touchdown and caught two balls for 11 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to Buffalo.

      Advice: He's now gone over 100 total yards in seven straight games. Amid concerns regarding his Week 14 hip bruise, Lacy got the start and dominated Buffalo's defense in the early going. By the 14:14 mark in the second quarter, he had eight rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Packers were forced to throw the football after falling behind, limiting Lacy's second-half rushing work. James Starks finished with just five touches to Lacy's 17. Lock in Lacy as an RB1 entering a Week 16 date with the Buccaneers. Rotoworld.com

      49ers declared WR Stevie Johnson, QB Josh Johnson, OT Anthony Davis, CB Tramaine Brock, C Marcus Martin, S Ray Ventrone and RCB Chris Culliver inactive for Week 15 against the Seahawks.

      Advice: Johnson is week to week. He'll be replaced in three-wide sets by Brandon Lloyd, though it's unlikely to matter much against the Legion of Boom in Seattle. Dontae Johnson is starting in place of Culliver. Rotoworld.com

      Ryan Mathews (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Broncos.

      Advice: Matthews didn't practice all week and will be questionable for Week 16 as well. Branden Oliver will start, with Donald Brown mixing in as a change-of-pace option. Ronnie Brown could see some third-down work. The rest of the Chargers inactives: Ladarius Green, Mike Scifres, Dontrelle Inman, Damion Square, Ryan Carrethers and Cordarro Law. Rotoworld.com

      Eddie Lacy is active for Week 15 at Buffalo.

      Advice: Beat writers expect Lacy to share the workload with James Starks, but the Packers were hoping to divvy up the workload even before he suffered a hip bruise. Lacy is a borderline RB1 against a sagging Bills run defense. The Packers' Week 15 inactives are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis, and DT Bruce Gaston. Rotoworld.com

      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Mathews (ankle) is "highly doubtful" to play Week 15 against the Broncos.

      Advice: Not a surprise. Mathews didn't practice at all this week after hurting his ankle last week. Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will handle running-back duties for the Bolts. Neither is more than a desperation RB3/FLEX option. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky expects there to be a 50-50 timeshare between Eddie Lacy (hip, probable) and James Starks Week 15 against the Bills.

      Advice: Demovsky said the plan was to split work between Lacy and Starks even before Lacy hurt his hip late in the Packers' win over the Falcons on Monday night. In a tough matchup and with an uncertain workload, Lacy is more of an RB2 for the fantasy semifinals. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Mathews may play without practicing
      On Friday, coach Mike McCoy left the door open for Ryan Mathews (questionable, ankle) to play in Week 15 against the Broncos despite not practicing all week.

      Advice: Even if he goes, Mathews would figure to be at significantly less than 100 percent. We would bet against Mathews playing, but it's still ostensibly within the realm of possibility. Donald Brown is next up on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com

    • DeAngelo Williams unlikely to play Sunday
      DeAngelo Williams (questionable, hand) might be able to play in an "emergency situation" on Sunday against the Bucs.

      Advice: In other words, he won't play unless the Panthers face an emergency. Coach Ron Rivera confirmed Friday Jonathan Stewart will get the start, and he should be a borderline every-down back in a game that should either be close or in Carolina's favor enough that OC Mike Shula is able to ride his running game with volume. Stewart is a quality RB2/flex play against Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Mathews misses his 3rd straight practice
      Ryan Mathews (questionable, ankle) missed practice for the third straight day on Friday.

      Advice: It's going to be the Donald Brown-Branden Oliver show Sunday against Denver, perhaps with some Ronnie Brown mixed in. Mathews seems highly unlikely to play after severely spraining his ankle in last week's loss to the Patriots. Brown recently passed Oliver on the depth chart and would be the favorite for work.

      Eddie Lacy (hip) is probable for Week 15 against the Bills.

      Advice: Lacy is fine for Sunday, but coach Mike McCarthy hinted at a split between Lacy and James Starks in the backfield. Lacy gets a bump down the ranks for Week 15. He faces a tough run defense at less than 100 percent and in a likely time split. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for fantasy semifinals week. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Lindley fills in for Drew Stanton
      Filling in for an injured Drew Stanton (knee), Ryan Lindley completed 4-of-10 passes for 30 yards in the Cardinals' 12-6, Week 15 win over the Rams.

      Advice: Stanton was injured early in the third quarter. Lindley has been on the roster for just 30 days, but got the call over fourth-round rookie Logan Thomas. It's possible coach Bruce Arians still views Thomas as his No. 2, but didn't want to throw him into the fire on the road against an elite defense. Lindley wasn't anything resembling functional, struggling to command the offense while making poor throws. Although he made four starts for the doomed 2012 Cardinals, he couldn't be considered a competent guiding hand were Stanton done for the season. Whatever happens, the Cardinals are in ridiculously bad shape at quarterback. It's a shame for an 11-3 team. Rotoworld.com

      Speaking Thursday, Eddie Lacy (hip) hinted he could miss Week 15.

      Advice: Lacy said he's making progress, but that there's "still some things I need to figure out." Lacy said there are hurdles he must clear, and that he doesn't want to put the Pack at a disadvantage if he "can't play effectively." Lacy said he has "no idea" if he'd be at risk of further injury if he played. All together, the comments paint a pessimistic picture of Lacy's Week 15 status, especially considering the Packers' notoriously conservative medical staff. A solid Friday practice could change everything, but for now, Lacy owners need to have James Starks on speed dial. Rotoworld.com

It's music to the ears of Jonathan Stewart owners, as he can be safely fired up as an RB2 against the Bucs. Rotoworld.com

      Speaking following Thursday's practice, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Eddie Lacy (hip) is "making progress."

      Advice: Lacy was officially "limited" on Thursday, but did "little to nothing" in the estimation of beat writer Rob Demovsky. Demovsky wonders if Lacy's injury is "more of an issue than originally thought." What Lacy is able to do on Friday will be key. For now, owners can keep him penciled in as their RB1, but need to be readying a back-up plan. Rotoworld.com

That would leave Branden Oliver and Donald Brown to form a committee. Oliver would be a FLEX option. Mathews' status will be updated on Friday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

      The Union-Tribune San Diego's Kevin Acee doesn't believe the Chargers will re-sign impending free agent Ryan Mathews.

      Advice: Acee believes Mathews' time left in San Diego should be "measured in weeks." The former 12th overall pick just can't stay healthy, as he's battled ankle, shoulder, and knee injuries this season. He's played in just six games in 2014 and has just one 16-game season under his belt through five years. Mathews turned 27 in October. He'll likely be looking at $3-4 million annual-average offers.
