Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He was listed as probable, so it's unclear if he suffered a setback in warmups or is a healthy scratch. Either way, Silas Redd will get another game as Washington's pass-catching RB.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders was sent home from practice on Saturday with flu-like symptoms. He's listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals. Insider Jeff Legwold reports that Sanders is still expected to play "at this point." He still has over 48 hours before kickoff. We'll continue to track the situation, but fantasy owners can leave Sanders in lineups for now.

The Broncos have listed QB Peyton Manning (thigh) as questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals. But Manning was able to put in 3 limited practices this week, and multiple reports had him looking just fine. Manning isn't in any danger of missing Monday night's game. Denver's recent run-heavy attack and a tough Bengals pass defense are bigger concerns than the thigh. Click here to see where Manning sits in our Week 16 Rankings.

Falcons insider Vaughn McClure believes WR Julio Jones (hip) will "definitely" play against the Saints on Sunday. "And it's not as if the Falcons will have him on the field just as a decoy," McClure adds. "They need Jones in this desperation game, so I suspect he will get plenty of opportunities." The fact that Julio was unable to practice this week is worrisome. We'll be keeping a close eye on the Sunday morning reports on how he's feeling. And we'll have his official status by noon ET. If Jones is active, he'll be nearly impossible to bench in fantasy.

A hamstring injury has cost Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur the 1st 2 days of practice this week. We'll see about his status Saturday before the Monday night meeting with the Broncos, but Denver hasn't proved to be a great matchup for LB scoring anyway. This looks like a guy to sit in Week 16 in your IDP league, even if he starts.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 19:07
Washington LB Keenan Robinson put in limited practices all week but is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Eagles. Robinson has missed the past 2 games with a knee injury. His likely absence again this week should leave Will Compton in the starting lineup, though the matchup doesn't favor his chances to continue the solid production of his 1st 2 starts.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 19:00
Washington S Brandon Meriweather has missed the past 3 weeks with a toe injury. On Friday, the team decided to shut him down for the season. Meriweather's IR trip figures to keep Philip Thomas in the starting lineup next to Ryan Clark, but Thomas played just 62.9% of the defensive snaps last week in his 2nd start. He's no IDP option, even against the Eagles' #1 matchup for fantasy DBs. The Washington team D also doesn't look good for fantasy use.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 18:50
Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson has made some progress in his recovery from turf toe. He enters the weekend questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. That's better than the past 3 weeks, when he turned up "out" twice and "doubtful" once on the final injury reports. (He missed all 3 games.) Wilkerson put in 3 limited practices this week after 2 limited workouts to finish last week. His injury will make him a risky IDP prospect even if he plays. But we'll update his Sunday status in case you plan to take a chance on him.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 18:42
After missing the past 2 games with a knee injury, Vikings LB Anthony Barr will have surgery to address the issue. HC Mike Zimmer called the procedure "very minor" on Friday, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, but he said the rookie won't play again this season. That should give Gerald Hodges a starting gig over the next 2 weeks, and he has delivered useful fantasy football numbers in limited starting opportunities this year. Barr finishes a terrific rookie season that sets him up as at least a perennial IDP starting candidate going forward -- with stud potential.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 18:39
Saints LB Junior Galette didn't show up on this week's injury report, but that doesn't mean his knee is back to 100% after he hurt it in the loss to the Panthers. The New Orleans pass-rusher told ESPN.com that he figures to see the same part-time role that he did last week, when he registered 2 sacks amid just 27 snaps against the Bears. “Right now my knee’s not 100 percent," Galette said. "So just being smart and making sure I’m not playing 60 snaps on half a knee.” The edge man is only an option in deep, sack-favoring IDP leagues, and the Saints make for a weak team-D play regardless of Galette's snap count.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 18:19
The Seahawks on Friday signed DE Cliff Avril to a 4-year extension. Avril has been a more valuable player on the field in Seattle than he has to IDP owners. His low-volume tackle production makes him risky, and the mere 13 total tackles over the past 2 seasons aren't enough to make him worth the gamble most weeks. Avril does at least present matchup opportunities, though. We'll see if he can enhance his fantasy profile going forward. His continued presence certainly doesn't hurt Seattle's team-D outlook at least.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 16:14
Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) has put in 2 full practices so far this week. It's the 1st time he's put in 2 straight full practices since injuring his ankle in Week 11. It looks like Thomas is approaching 100% health after being limited in his first 2 games back. He remains a risky fantasy starter until we see him back in his early-season role, but you know the upside when he is a full-go. Thomas gets Cincinnati's 16th-ranked TE defense on Monday night.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 16:04
49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) is questionable for Saturday night's game against the Chargers. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still needs to receive full medical clearance to play. He seems on track to do so, but we'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET on Saturday. With RB Carlos Hyde (back, ankle) out, Gore will be a strong bet for 15+ carries if he plays. But the declining 31-year-old would still be just a RB3 in fantasy football lineups.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:35
Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) is officially probable for Week 16 after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s incredibly banged up but was never going to miss Saturday night’s game against the 49ers. But at less than 100% and in a tough matchup, he’s not a recommended QB1 for Week 16.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:33
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) is probable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, suggesting that he’s closer to 100% than he was last week. Fire up Charles as a top-5 RB for Week 16. He might even be a sneaky play in DFS tournaments.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:26
Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is questionable for Saturday night’s game against the 49ers. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, so he seems on track to play. Green could see an extra target or 2 with WR Keenan Allen out, but he still can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:24
Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday night’s game against the 49ers. That again leaves the backfield to Branden Oliver and Donald Brown. They essentially split snaps last week, with Oliver out-touching Brown 16 to 9. Oliver is the better Week 16 fantasy bet, but he’s just a RB3 or flex in a tough matchup.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:17
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) didn’t practice all week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. He’ll be a game-time call, and it’s tough to believe he’ll be anywhere near 100% if he plays. That, plus Houston’s shaky QB situation, makes Hopkins a risky WR3 for Week 16.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 13:14
Patriots WR Julian Edelman (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He put in 3 limited practices this week. That means he’s passed some stages of the protocol but has yet to receive full medical clearance. The good news is that Patriots-Jets kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday. If Edelman is active, he’ll be a solid WR2 in the plus matchup.
