    • Mike Smith doesn't update S-Jax's status
      Falcons coach Mike Smith declined to update Steven Jackson's (quad) status at Monday's presser.

      Advice: Smith did say Jackson was undergoing testing on Monday. 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

    • 'Possibility' Ryan Mathews ready for Week 17
      Speaking Monday, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said there's a "possibility" Ryan Mathews (ankle) is ready for Week 17.

      Advice: Mathews has missed the Bolts' past two games. Mathews has yet to resume practicing, so we wouldn't bet big money on him being ready to go against the Chiefs. If that's the case, the Bolts will keep going with a three-man committee of Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Ronnie Brown. Rotoworld.com

    • Sankey not seeing blocking assignments
      Titans RBs coach Sylvester Croom said Bishop Sankey "does a pretty good job physically pass-blocking, but has been inconsistent with "assignments and recognizing defenses."

      Advice: The Titans coaches have had a lot of problems with Sankey this year, ranging from "footwork" to blocking. He has lost goal-line work to Shonn Greene and pass-down reps to both Leon Washington and Dexter McCluster. It's resulted in 148-551-2 (3.72 YPC) for Sankey, who was the first running back off the board in May's draft. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarco Murray admits hand bothered him
      Following Sunday's win over the Colts, DeMarco Murray admitted his broken hand was "hurting throughout the game."

      Advice: Murray predictably didn't catch a pass for the first time this season, but gutted out a 22-58-1 line on the ground. He figures to be closer to 100 percent in Week 17 if the Cowboys choose to use him. They've clinched the NFC East already, yet can get a first-round bye if they beat the Redskins and both the Cardinals and Seahawks lose. Rotoworld.com

    • West's practice week left him on sideline
      Coach Mike Pettine said a poor week of practice was the reason Terrance West played zero snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

      Advice: West went from starting the previous two weeks to playing behind Shaun Draughn Sunday. The third-round rookie has been in and out of the doghouse all season, highlighted by a healthy scratch in Week 6 and a 26-94-1 performance in Week 10. Pettine is earning a reputation in fantasy circles as an unpredictable coach when it comes to usage. Rotoworld.com

    • Christine Michael gets limited work
      Christine Michael had eight carries for 28 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

      Advice: Michael was mostly used in mop-up duty, but saw four carries with Marshawn Lynch missing time in the first quarter. He remains behind both Lynch and Robert Turbin for touches. Seattle has a Week 17 matchup against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

    • Turbin plays entire first quarter for Lynch
      Robert Turbin rushed 10 times for 38 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

      Advice: Turbin started and got the majority of work in the first quarter with Marshawn Lynch sidelined. He finished with 10 touches, with Christine Michael also mixing in. Turbin will be just a change of pace behind Lynch in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Kerwynn Williams held to two carries
      Kerwynn Williams was held to two carries for four yards in Sunday night's loss to Seattle.

      Advice: Williams barely saw the field behind Stepfan Taylor. He surprisingly wasn't part of the gameplan after leading the backfield in snaps last week. Taylor averaged just 1.7 YPC, so Williams could be more involved in Week 17 against the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    • Stepfan Taylor does little in Week 16
      Stepfan Taylor rushed 11 times for 19 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

      Advice: Taylor started and got the majority of carries. He was a non-factor in the run game, but managed two catches for 25 yards on three targets. Taylor should remain in a timeshare with Kerwynn Williams going forward despite significantly outsnapping him this week. The Cardinals have a matchup with the 49ers in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Lynch posts 113 yards, 2 TDs on limited work
      Marshawn Lynch had 10 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

      Advice: Lynch missed the first quarter due to an illness-related issue. He was limited to 10 carries and held in check for most of the game before breaking off a 79-yard touchdown. Lynch has 100 total yards or a touchdown in four straight weeks. Seattle closes out the regular season against the Rams. Rotoworld.com

    • Latavius Murray manages 108 total yards
      Latavius Murray rushed for 86 yards on 23 carries in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Bills.

      Advice: He caught 3-of-4 targets for an additional 22 yards. Murray got off to a slow start, but picked up gains of 25 and 17 on back-to-back carries midway through the game. He also had another 15-plus-yard run called back on a holding penalty. Murray was vultured by Darren McFadden late on a goal-line look, and DMC predictably was stuffed for no gain. The Raiders have a building block in Murray. He runs somewhat high, but has proven slippery. He and the Raiders will close out the season in Denver next week. Rotoworld.com

    • Trent Richardson gains nine total yards
      Trent Richardson rushed two times for one yard and caught two passes for eight yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.

      Advice: Richardson is usually terrible, but his performance Week 16 had more to do with the Colts' struggling offensive line. The Cowboys dominated the line of scrimmage, limiting Indianapolis to 229 total yards. Richardson will finish the season against the Titans Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Joseph Randle sees 14 touches Week 16
      Joseph Randle rushed 12 times for 37 yards Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: With DeMarco Murray limited by a hand injury, Randle saw double-digit carries for the first time this season. Dallas clinched the NFC East with the win over Indianapolis and only has an outside shot at a first-round bye, meaning Randle could see a lot of run Week 17 against Washington. Rotoworld.com

    • Knile Davis totals 11 yards vs. Steelers
      Knile Davis rushed twice for two yards in Kansas City's Week 16 loss to the Steelers, adding a nine-yard reception.

      Advice: One week after featuring against the Raiders, Davis was mothballed as the Chiefs lost a must-win game. Coach Andy Reid dialed up just 12 non-quarterback rushes as Alex Smith was allowed to throw the ball 45 times. Davis will be off the DFS radar in Week 17 against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

      Theo Riddick had zero carries and caught two passes for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win at Chicago.

      Advice: Even with Joique Bell benched for the first quarter, Riddick didn't have a role. His skill set is far too similar to Reggie Bush's. Rotoworld.com

    • Mark Ingram shut down by Falcons but scores
      Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 38 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Falcons.

      Advice: Ingram was gifted a touchdown after Jalen Saunders returned the opening kickoff 99 yards to the Falcons' one-yard line. He was completely shut down the rest of the game as Atlanta completely dominated the line of scrimmage. Pierre Thomas (foot) left this game early, so Ingram could have an expanded role Week 17 against the Bucs. Rotoworld.com

    • Asiata scores 2 TDs as Vikings lose
      Matt Asiata rushed 16 times for 58 yards and two touchdowns and caught three balls for 19 yards in the Vikings' Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.

      Advice: Asiata gave Minnesota a quick first-quarter lead on a one-yard touchdown run. Miami has struggled mightily in run defense for the past month-plus and Minnesota looked to take advantage, utilizing FB Jerome Felton ahead of Asiata in I and offset-I formations. Asiata also converted a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, and the game-winning touchdown just plays later following a Jarvis Landry lost fumble deep in Dolphins territory. Asiata paid Week 16 fantasy dividends, but continues to be an entirely TD-dependent fantasy commodity. The Vikings will close out their season against the Bears in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Le'Veon Bell rushed 20 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs, adding a nine-yard reception.

      Advice: For just the third time all season, Bell was held below 100 yards from scrimmage, but he now has 10 total touchdowns over his past five games. Bell should eat in Week 17 against the Bengals, where the Steelers will be playing for a division title and home playoff game. Rotoworld.com

    • Eddie Lacy runs for 99 yards, TD on Bucs
      Eddie Lacy had 17 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

      Advice: Lacy broke a tackle and powered his way to a 44-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He gained consistent yardage against the Bucs all game, averaging 5.8 YPC. Lacy went over 1,000 yards on the season with the performance. The Packers rested him late with a leg injury, but he shouldn't miss any practice time. Rotoworld.com

    • Donald Brown plays second fiddle to Oliver
      Donald Brown rushed four times for 12 yards Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Brown was the clear second option to Branden Oliver, and even lost some pass-game work to Ronnie Brown late in the game. Brown is not a viable fantasy option even if Ryan Mathews (ankle) cannot play Week 17 against the Chiefs. Rotoworld.com
