|Sat Dec 20||02:04||Jackson's teammate C.J||Fred Jackson||RB||Bills||HPO|
Jackson's teammate C.J. Spiller appears set to return to action this week from a collarbone injury that has sidelined him since Week 7,
Jackson received 20 carries last week in the win over Green Bay, and while the matchup against the Raiders could prove to be a juicy one, Spiller could get in the way a bit if the Bills want to give the exciting player some work.
|Fri Dec 19||22:10||Crabtree (knee) questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego||Michael Crabtree||WR||49ers||Diddlee Poo|
Crabtree (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Crabtree logged limited practices Thursday and Friday, so he seems to have a decent chance at suiting up. With the 49ers offense in complete disarray at this point, Crabtree doesn't have much obvious fantasy appeal either way, however.
|Fri Dec 19||22:06||Johnson (knee) out for Sunday's game against San Diego||Stevie Johnson||WR||Bills||ClayCounty|
Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Johnson was unable to practice all week, so it's possible that his season has concluded at this point.
|Fri Dec 19||22:05||Brooks (thumb) questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego||Ahmad Brooks||LB||49ers||Free Agent|
Brooks (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.
The 49ers really could use Brooks' presence since they're dealing with so many injuries at linebacker, and the fact that he logged two limited practices this week is encouraging.
|Fri Dec 19||22:04||Gore (concussion) questionable for Sunday's game against San Die...||Frank Gore||RB||49ers||ClayCounty|
Gore (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Gore was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but he remains questionable going into the weekend. The 49ers would be very thin at running back if Gore can't go, because Carlos Hyde (ankle) is already out. Alfonso Smith and Phillip Tanner are next in line.
|Fri Dec 19||22:02||Wilhoite (hip) questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego||Michael Wilhoite||LB||49ers||Free Agent|
Wilhoite (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.
The 49ers are already without Chris Borland, Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman at inside linebacker, so they'd be extremely thin at the position if Wilhoite can't suit up. He generally seems like a good bet to play after logging limited practices Thursday and Friday.
|Fri Dec 19||21:55||DeAngelo Williams (hand) will likely miss Sunday's game against ...||Jonathan Stewart||RB||Panthers||Diddlee Poo|
DeAngelo Williams (hand) will likely miss Sunday's game against Cleveland, leaving Stewart in a workhorse role again, the Charlotte Observer reports.
Stewart is a strong on-paper RB2 start this week, as he should have a significant workload against a below average run defense. It also helps that Cam Newton (back) will return to the field, which should open up the middle of field for Stewart as the defense accounts for Newton's ability to break outside containment as a runner.
|Fri Dec 19||21:44||Culliver (knee) probable for Sunday's game against San Diego||Chris Culliver||CB||49ers||Free Agent|
Culliver (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Culliver's return should give San Francisco a boost in the secondary, but he's generally not worth IDP consideration.
|Fri Dec 19||19:48||Manning (right thigh) listed as limited in Friday's practice||Peyton Manning||QB||Broncos||Free Agent|
Manning (right thigh) was listed as limited in Friday's practice, ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Manning threw more Friday than he did during Thursday's practice and remains on track to start Monday's game against the Bengals. We'll revisit the veteran QB's status Saturday, when then Broncos release their final injury report in advance of the contest.
|Fri Dec 19||19:43||Hawkins (illness) listed as probable for Sunday's game against P...||Andrew Hawkins||WR||Bengals||Free Agent|
Hawkins (illness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Hawkins should be fine for Sunday's game, but given that he is coming off a two-catch, seven-yard effort in Week 15, he's a speculative play in Johnny Manziel's second start at QB for the Browns.
|Fri Dec 19||19:39||Haden (shoulder) listed as questionable for Sunday's game agains...||Joe Haden||CB||Browns||Free Agent|
Haden (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Per the report, Haden, who returned to practice in a limited fashion Friday, is viewed by coach Mike Pettine as a game-time decision for Sunday's game, a 1:00 ET kickoff.
|Fri Dec 19||19:34||Dansby (knee) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against P...||Karlos Dansby||LB||Dolphins||Free Agent|
Dansby (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
More on Dansby's status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but we'd like to see him get a full and productive game in before recommending the linebacker as a fantasy lineup option.
|Fri Dec 19||19:31||Barnidge (rib) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against ...||Gary Barnidge||TE||Panthers||Free Agent|
Barnidge (rib) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
With Jordan Cameron back in the Browns' lineup, Barnidge's Week 16 status is of more import to the team's depth at tight end than it is to fantasy owners.
|Fri Dec 19||19:24||Johnson (concussion) listed as probable for Sunday's game agains...||Andre Johnson||WR||Texans||The Squirts|
Johnson (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Texans' official site reports.
Per the report, Johnson did not participate in Friday's practice due to a non-injury-related issue, but the veteran wideout is believed to be on track on track to suit up Sunday, an outcome fantasy owners will want to verify in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.
|Fri Dec 19||19:21||Foster (hip) listed as probable for Sunday's game against Ravens||Arian Foster||RB||Texans||Wasabiwolt|
Foster (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Texans' official site reports.
Foster -- who has racked up 50 carries over the last two weeks -- practiced fully Friday and he figures to be busy again on Sunday, with the Texans expected to start Case Keenum at QB this weekend.
|Fri Dec 19||19:06||Wright (ribs) out for Sunday's game against Green Bay||Major Wright||S||Bears||Free Agent|
Wright (ribs) is out for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
Wright was able to practice in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday, so he might be able to return in Week 17.
|Fri Dec 19||18:38||Moore (knee, ankle) ruled out for Sunday's game against Bills||Denarius Moore||WR||Raiders||DBTS|
Moore (knee, ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.
The fourth-year wideout hasn't seen the field since losing a fumble back in Week 12, as he was a healthy scratch for Week 13 and then suffered knee and ankle injuries "away from the building," according to interim coach Tony Sparano. Moore has caught just 12 passes on 27 targets for 115 yards this season and will likely have to fight for a roster spot with another club next summer.
|Fri Dec 19||18:37||Moeaki (shoulder) questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona||Tony Moeaki||TE||Chiefs||Free Agent|
Moeaki (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona.
Moeaki's availability isn't a matter of great importance, especially with Cooper Helfet (ankle) making his return Sunday.
|Fri Dec 19||18:32||Brown (groin) ruled out for Sunday's game against Bills||Vincent Brown||WR||Chargers||Free Agent|
Brown (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.
A calf injury ended Brown's tenure in San Diego, and he's been plagued by hamstring and groin issues since joining Oakland. He'll miss Sunday's game and his inability to practice in any capacity during the week suggests he may very well have played his final snap of the season. Brown is still sitting with just three career touchdowns, with only one since 2011.
|Fri Dec 19||18:25||Pierce (back) probable for Sunday's game against Texans||Bernard Pierce||RB||Ravens||Free Agent|
Pierce (back) is probable for Sunday's game against the Texans, the Ravens' official site reports.
Pierce, who logged six carries for 37 yards in Week 15's win over the Jaguars, is only a consideration in deeper leagues, though with Lorenzo Taliaferro on IR, he's Justin Forsett's clear-cut top backup down the stretch.
