Patriots WR Julian Edelman (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He was limited in practice all week, so it looks like he still hasn't passed the final stage of the concussion protocol. We'll find out Edelman's official status by noon ET on Sunday, but there's no guarantee he plays the entire game with New England having nothing to gain.

49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was limited to 15 snaps last week, but it looks like he's ready to resume a full-time role in the finale. Crabtree hasn't scored or topped 58 yards since Week 11, though. He's a low-upside WR3.

A whopping 18 players were listed by the Patriots on Friday's injury report, with running back Jonas Gray and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard being ruled out of Sunday's game. Gray has been dealing with an ankle injury, and was the only player to miss Friday's practice. (Boston Herald)
FF Today's Take: LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen are both listed as Questionable. With nothing to play for the entire Patriots offense is too risky to consider for DFS lineups. Brandon Bolden and James White could be the two main ball-carries for New England in Week 17.

Atlanta likely to be without Steven Jackson
Rookie running back Devonta Freeman believes he's ready to take over the rushing load if Steven Jackson does not play against the Carolina Panthers. Jacquizz Rodgers will likely get the bulk of the carries because he's still considered a better pass protector. Also, Jerome Smith was added to the roster from the practice squad. He will be active and may play. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)
FF Today's Take: Steven Jackson (quad) is expected to miss Week 17. As a result, expect Rodgers and Freeman to be in a timeshare against the Panthers. Freeman's 4.0 rushing average and 7.9 receiving average suggest he has the better upside over Rodgers (3.5 - 5.9).

Head coach won't divulge plan at running back
Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he did not want to divulge his running back rotation beyond Stewart starting because it could give the Falcons a competitive advantage. "I'm not going to sit here and divulge what my plan is with my players," Rivera said. "I don't want to get up here and tell you exactly what we're going to do with our players. Why do I want to give the opponent any insight into what we're going to do?" (ESPN)
FF Today's Take: What we do know is Jonathan Stewart will start. How much DeAngelo Williams plays, if at all, remains to be seen. Williams was listed as Questionable last week but was only available in an emergency situation according to Rivera. The Probable tag suggests he may see the field in a backup role. High-end RB2 usage from Stewart should be expected.

Listed as Probable
Sunday also figures to mark the return of running back Ronnie Hillman. He practiced fully for the first time this week since suffering a foot injury on Nov. 9 at Oakland. He is probable, clearing the way for him to complement C.J. Anderson. (Denver Post)
FF Today's Take: Hillman is likely to backup to Anderson but how much of a role he will have is unclear. He could potentially take enough carries away to make Anderson more of an RB2 than RB1.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ribs) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. He figures to lead the backfield in touches but is a low-upside fantasy play vs. a defense that’s allowed the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to RBs over the last 5 weeks.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 12:13
Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. San Diego is holding out hope that Allen will be able to play, but that seems like an extreme long shot. Look for Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal to serve as the team’s top 2 WRs.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 12:12
Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. That means another game as the lead back for Branden Oliver, who’s totaled 32 touches over the past 2 games. Another 15+ touches will make Oliver a solid RB2 vs. a Kansas City defense that’s allowed 4.8 yards per carry over the past 5 weeks.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 12:02
Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. We’ve heard nothing to suggest that the hip is a major concern, though. It might be enough to keep him out of DFS lineups, but Sanders remains a must-start in season-long leagues.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 12:00
Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 10. Hillman only figures to see a handful of touches behind RB C.J. Anderson and isn’t a fantasy option. Anderson remains a clear RB1.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 11:48
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (foot) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Bucs. That could mean a bigger role for RB Travaris Cadet, who caught 14 balls in the 4 games Thomas missed earlier this season. Cadet qualifies as a flier in PPR leagues.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 11:14
Bengals WR A.J. Green (arm) is probable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers after putting in a full practice on Friday. That suggests the bicep injury won’t be an issue. Green torched the Steelers for 224 yards and a score a few weeks ago.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 10:55
Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bears. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a chance to play. At less than 100% though, Rudolph isn’t a recommended Week 17 fantasy start.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 10:36
Giants RB Andre Williams (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s expected to play but is facing a tough run defense and will be contending with the return of RB Rashad Jennings (probable, ankle). We don’t like either Giants RB in DFS this week.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 10:28
Browns QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder, bicep) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) has already been ruled out. That leaves Cleveland with QB Connor Shaw, an undrafted rookie who’s spent the entire year on the practice squad. Shaw isn’t an option in any fantasy format, and he makes WR Josh Gordon and TE Jordan Cameron shaky Week 17 starts.
