Player Notes

  • DeVante Parker (back) questionable for Sunday
    DeVante Parker (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Cardinals.

    Advice: He was upgraded to a full practice on Friday and should be all systems go for Sunday. Facing a difficult matchup against Patrick Peterson, Parker will be a tough sell as a WR3 this week. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • John Brown listed as questionable for Sunday
    John Brown (illness) is questionable for Week 14 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: He put in two limited practices this week. Brown's sickle-cell issues haven't gone away and it looks like he'll be on a snap count until further notice. Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere. Rotoworld.com 45 minutes ago

  • DeAngelo Williams questionable for Sunday
    DeAngelo Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Bills.

    Advice: Williams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery about a month ago and has missed the Steelers' last four games. He practiced Wednesday, got the day off on Thursday and returned to a limited session on Friday. Williams will slide in as the No. 2 back behind workhorse Le'Veon Bell upon his return. Fitzgerald Toussaint has been filling that role for the past month. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:34 am

  • J-Matt 'definitely' playing against Redskins
    Jordan Matthews (ankle, questionable) said he will "definitely" play in Week 14 against the Redskins.

    Advice: Matthews has practiced fully the last two days and should be all set to resume his role as the Eagles' primary slot receiver. Last week marked the first absence of J-Matt's three-year career. Fantasy owners should view him as a WR3 this week. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:28 am

  • Update: Boswell to be a game-time decision
    Updating a previous report, Chris Boswell (abdomen, questionable) is likely to be a game-time decision against the Bills in Week 14.

    Advice: Mark Kaboly of DK Pittsburgh Sports reported earlier that Boswell was expected to play, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said the Steelers won't know his status until he goes through pregame warmups. For what it's worth, Boswell returned to a full practice on Friday following absences on Wednesday and Thursday. Randy Bullock filled in for Boswell last week against the Giants.

  • Julio Jones in danger of missing Week 14?
    D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tweeted Friday that he is not anticipating Julio Jones (toe, questionable) will play in Week 14 against the Rams.

    Advice: This is just a beat writer guess, but reinforces that Julio is no lock to be active against the Rams after he did little to nothing during the practice week. Officially, Jones was listed as "DNP" all three days. Coach Dan Quinn said Friday that he "anticipates" Julio playing, but that may be mere coachspeak. If Julio is indeed active, he will be a boom-bust WR1. It's a very tough situation in the fantasy playoffs because Falcons-Rams doesn't kick off until 4:25 PM ET. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:59 am

  • Lions release TE Brandon Pettigrew
    Lions released TE Brandon Pettigrew.

    Advice: Pettigrew is believed to be healthy, but the Lions had washed their hands of him. He's now available to the highest bidder. A productive receiving tight end at Oklahoma State, Pettigrew was the 20th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He never developed into anything more than a blocking tight end in six years with Detroit.

  • Mohamed Sanu (groin) ruled out for Week 14
    Mohamed Sanu (groin) is out for Week 14 against the Rams.

    Advice: Sanu didn't practice all week and never had much chance of playing against the Rams. With Julio Jones (turf toe) a game-time decision, Taylor Gabriel should be in line for his biggest workload of the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:29 am

  • A.J. Green (hamstring) officially out Week 14
    A.J. Green (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Browns.

    Advice: There was never any question he would sit this week, but he has been working on the side fields with trainers during practice. It is possible Green will return next week. Brandon LaFell will continue to operate as the No. 1 receiver with Tyler Eifert and Tyler Boyd taking on big roles as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:00 am

  • Rex: Watkins, Woods 'ready to roll' Week 14
    Bills coach Rex Ryan said Sammy Watkins (foot) and Robert Woods (knee) will be "ready to roll" Week 14 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Both were listed as questionable, but there really is not much doubt about either's status. Watkins will be an upside WR3 play as his snap share continues to grow, and Woods will be a low-ceiling WR4 against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am

  • Allen Hurns (hamstring) out for Week 14
    Allen Hurns (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Hurns will miss his second game in a row with a hamstring injury. Marqise Lee will serve as the No. 2 with Bryan Walters handling the slot duties. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am

  • Chris Ivory (hammy) listed as questionable
    Chris Ivory (hamstring) is questionable for Week 14 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Ivory got in limited work all week, and coach Gus Bradley said he will be a game-time decision. Even if Ivory is back, T.J. Yeldon should take on the bulk of the work. Denard Robinson (ankle) is out. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:15 am

  • Julius Thomas (back) out again Week 14
    Julius Thomas (back) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Vikings.

    Advice: Thomas has not played since Week 11. Neal Sterling has nine targets in the last two weeks, but he is not a realistic streaming option. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:13 am

  • Ryan Mathews listed questionable, should play
    Ryan Mathews (knee) was listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Redskins.

    Advice: Coach Doug Pederson labeled Mathews "ready to go" on Thursday. Mathews should return to his lead role, but the Eagles have been unable to establish a running game while being blown out the last two weeks. Mathews will be a risky FLEX play in his return. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am

  • GM says team will evaluate Tyrod after season
    Bills GM Doug Whaley said the team will decide whether to retain Tyrod Taylor after the season.

    Advice: "He's got 4 more games to write this chapter," Whaley said. "Then after this season, like everybody on the team, we're going to do an evaluation and then we'll go from there." Whaley was equally cryptic about Taylor's future last offseason before signing him to a "six-year, $92 million" contract in August which was really a one-year deal with a $27.5 million option for 2017. Taylor has played well enough to cement himself as the starter in Buffalo, and the Bills really do not have any other option but to retain him. Whaley could be soft-playing his hand in an attempt to finagle a renegotiation, but Buffalo has to retain Taylor at this point. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 am

  • Jalen Richard touches ball six times vs. KC
    Jalen Richard rushed six times for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Richard was just a changeup behind Latavius Murray, who carried the ball 22 times. Richard was on the field for some important snaps late, but it wasn't an indictment of Murray's play. Murray was the Raiders' best offensive player this evening. Richard is a nice COP back, but has zero standalone value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm

  • Maclin invisible in return from groin injury
    Jeremy Maclin caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Maclin was invisible as Alex Smith shredded the Raiders in the first half, and even more invisible as Smith struggled in the second. Pro Football Focus charted him as playing 42-of-55 snaps, so it wasn't a playing-time issue. Maclin has legitimately struggled this year. He'll be a low-upside WR4 in Week 15 against the Titans. Travis Kelce is the Chiefs' new No. 1 receiver. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm

  • Seth Roberts has wildly-inefficient night
    Seth Roberts caught 2-of-9 targets for 12 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Yowza. Some of Roberts' missed connections were poor throws from Derek Carr, but two were egregious third-down drops that killed drives. It was a really poor performance, one that arguably altered the game. Roberts won't have WR5 appeal against the Chargers in Week 15. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 pm

  • Michael Crabtree bottled up for 21 yards
    Michael Crabtree caught 4-of-7 targets for 21 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Crabtree also seemed to injure his left hand late, but returned to the game after missing a few plays. There wasn't a whole lot Crabtree could do on an evening where Derek Carr was misfiring left and right. Amari Cooper had a legitimately bad game, but the same can't be said for Crabtree. He'll bounce-back as a high-end WR2 against the Chargers in Week 15. The Raiders' entire offense should be much better. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm
