    • Polk -- not Shady -- gets 1st RB practice rep
      According to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank, Chris Polk received the first running back rep at Eagles practice on Wednesday, ahead of LeSean McCoy.

      Advice: McCoy laughed off the running back order following the practice, and Frank concedes it's "impossible to tell" if it actually meant anything. McCoy was reportedly "on the sideline while Polk worked with the first unit." Reporters were only able to view two practice reps before the session was closed to media. "We rotate all the time," McCoy said Wednesday afternoon. "(RBs coach) Duce (Staley) pulled me out. (Darren) Sproles wasn't in either." The Eagles are preparing to play the Redskins on Saturday evening. When Philly and Washington played earlier this year, McCoy managed 22 yards on 19 carries. Rotoworld.com

    • Bears bench Cutler, Clausen to start Week 16
      ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears will start Jimmy Clausen over Jay Cutler in Week 16 against the Lions.

      Advice: The Bears are benching Cutler just 14 starts into his seven-year, $127 million extension. Per NFL Network's Mike Silver, coach Marc Trestman felt he could no longer start Cutler "simply to justify a contract" when his on-field play was so poor. Cutler regressed in his second season in Trestman's offense, leading the NFL in turnovers (24). Owed a fully guaranteed $15.5 million next year, the Bears' only option is to trade Cutler this offseason if they want to move on from him. Chicago would absorb $19 million in dead money by releasing Cutler before 2016. Rotoworld.com

      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

    • Jay Cutler tosses 3 INTs in MNF embarrassment
      Jay Cutler completed 17-of-31 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Bears' 31-15, Week 15 loss to the Saints on Monday night.

      Advice: The matchup couldn't have been much better for Cutler, but he predictably went all DGAF on us and took seven sacks, missed open receivers, and turned the ball over another three times. Both of his touchdowns came late in the fourth quarter. He hooked up with Marquess Wilson for a one-yard score to bring the score to 24-8, and then found Alshon Jeffery for the garbagiest of garbage-time touchdowns from seven yards out with 30 ticks left on the clock. Cutler leads the NFL in turnovers and gets to face the Lions' tough defense in Week 16. He managed 280 yards and a 2:2 TD:INT ratio against Detroit on Thanksgiving, but this Bears team has lied down since then. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Clay will play through his hamstring/knee issues. He's a TE2 for Sunday's matchup with New England. Rotoworld.com

    • Rex Ryan impressed with Harvin's recovery
      Jets coach Rex Ryan conceded Monday that he's been "impressed" with Percy Harvin's questionable, ankle) fast recovery.

      Advice: Ryan isn't committing to Harvin playing against the Titans, but it's sure beginning to sound like he will. "The fact that he's out there [on the practice field] is amazing," Ryan said. "This was a significant [ankle] injury. It's unbelievable. I'm still not sure, but I've been impressed." We'd bet on Harvin playing, but wouldn't bet on him as more than a crapshoot WR3 in fantasy.

    • 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

    • Percy Harvin says he's playing against Titans
      Percy Harvin (ankle, questionable) practiced on a limited basis Friday and stated afterwards he "should be ready to roll" for Week 15 against the Titans.

      Advice: He practiced on a limited basis on both Thursday and Friday, and coach Rex Ryan expressed optimism following Friday's session. It's a big change from early in thew week when Ryan indicated Harvin might be facing a multi-week absence. Instead, his ankle sprain was diagnosed as "low," and he's on track to face Tennessee. Harvin will be a boom-or-bust WR3 option in fantasy. Rotoworld.com

      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

    • Bears OC Kromer admits he criticized Cutler
      Bears OC Aaron Kromer admitted to the team on Monday that he was an anonymous source in a recent NFL Network report criticizing Jay Cutler.

      Advice: That would be Ian Rapoport's "serious buyer's remorse" report, though a "tearful" Kromer "adamantly denied" making the buyer's remorse comments. Whatever Kromer did or didn't exactly say, it's a stunning admission, and indicative of Raiders/Redskins-level dysfunction in Chicago. It's appearing less and less likely that coach Marc Trestman is going to keep his job. Not only has his defense collapsed, but his once-prolific offense has bordered on unwatchable many times over the past 5-6 weeks. Kromer's unprofessional act is going to earn him sideways glances the next time he's looking for a job. Rotoworld.com

    • Larry Fitzgerald has seven-catch night in win
      Larry Fitzgerald caught 7-of-10 targets for 30 yards in the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Rams.

      Advice: He also had a 27-yard catch called back by holding. The seven grabs were Fitz's most in four games, but he was limited to catching dinks and dunks as coach Bruce Arians tried to mask Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley's deficiencies. Fitz wasn't allowed to do work after the catch by a sound-tackling Rams defense. Fitz looked healthy tonight, and now has 10 days to heal up for Week 16, but will remain off the WR3 radar against the Seahawks' Legion of Boom. 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

      Panthers coach Ron Rivera expects DeAngelo Williams (hand) to miss Week 15.

      Advice: "Probably" was Rivera's answer when asked if D-Will was another week away despite his Thursday return to practice. "Probably" from a coach equals "absolutely" in regular English. 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

      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

    • Lacy does 'little to nothing' on Thursday
      Eddie Lacy (hip) did "little to nothing" in the portion of Packers practice open to the media on Thursday.

      Advice: Lacy's extremely limited participation led reliable beat writer Rob Demovsky to wonder if Lacy's hip issue is "more of an issue than originally thought." It's still quite possible the Pack are simply doing everything they can to limit Lacy's reps on a short week, but it's become a situation that calls for a back-up plan. James Starks would be a plug-and-play FLEX option were Lacy to sit against the Bills. Lacy's status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: It puts Williams on track to return for Week 15 against the Bucs, which deflates Jonathan Stewart's balloon. Williams has shown nothing to warrant the amount of playing time he gets, but the Panthers love splitting the work between Williams and Stewart. We'd love to see Stewart get another 20-plus carries.

It will be a great sign if Lacy can get in a "limited" session in Wednesday's practice. We ultimately expect Lacy to suit up this week, and be an RB1 against the Bills. Rotoworld.com

      Speaking Monday, Bears coach Marc Trestman insisted the team has "never wavered" on Jay Cutler as its starting quarterback.

      Advice: Trestman's endorsement comes one day after NFL Network reported the Bears were having "serious buyer's remorse" after giving Cutler a seven-year, $126.7 million deal in January. Cutler is on pace for 4,241 yards, and a new career-best 32 scores, but his play has gone in the gutter during the second half of the season. The majority of his numbers have been amassed in garbage time, with Cutler mostly limited to dinking and dunking with games still in doubt. Cutler turns 32 in April. Rotoworld.com

Of course, the Panthers would be far better off sitting down Williams and just riding Jonathan Stewart, who has quietly been playing at an elite level all season. He finally got to spread his wings against the Saints Sunday and dropped a 20-155-1 line. Rivera maddeningly declined to name Stewart his starter going forward Monday, instead saying it's his preference to wait. Rotoworld.com

      Philip Rivers completed 20-of-33 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

      Advice: It was another bad game from Rivers, who has a 6:6 TD/INT ratio over the last five weeks. His only touchdown was a 15-yard fade to Malcom Floyd in the corner of the end-zone. The Patriots shut down Keenan Allen with Darrelle Revis, leaving Rivers to check down to Donald Brown and Antonio Gates. Rivers will be just a low-end QB1 for Week 15 against the Broncos.
