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.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 11:51
Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (finger) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. He got on the practice field all 3 days this week, and it sounds like he made good progress. Doctors have reportedly told Murray that he’s not at more risk if he plays on Sunday than if he sits out until Week 17. And considering Dallas is giving him the final say, we’d be surprised if Murray doesn’t play. He’s unlikely to do much in the passing game, and he probably won’t come close to the 25 carries he averaged through his first 14 games. But we’d bet on Murray carrying at least 15 times. It’s enough to keep him in RB1 territory against the Colts’ 25th-ranked RB defense.

The Texans aren’t naming their starting QB before Sunday’s kickoff against the Ravens, but signs point to them going with Case Keenum. The 26-year-old was with Houston this offseason but struggled in the preseason, completing just 53.8% of his passes with 0 TDs and 2 INTs. He doesn’t belong in any season-long lineups and is a gamble even as a minimum-priced play in DFS.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 11:41
Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons after sitting out practice all week. It’s the same boat he was in last week before ending up inactive. Jones should theoretically be healthier now, though, and we’ll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday. For now, plan on starting Jones in season-long leagues if he’s active.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 11:38
Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Rams. That leaves Andre Williams as the feature back. But the rookie is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry this season and gets a defense allowing just 3.8. Williams is a low-upside RB3 for Week 16.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:56
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week, and reliable beat writer Mike Chappell is “convinced” that Hilton will not play this weekend. HC Chuck Pagano did say on Friday afternoon, “don’t count him out.” The 4:25 pm ET kickoff time means we probably won’t know Hilton’s status until 3 pm. Owners hoping to use Hilton need to have a late-game replacement rostered. If Hilton is active, he’ll be a risk/reward fantasy play. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a high-upside WR3.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:49
Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He was limited in practice all week. Williams isn't a fantasy option, but his return would make RB Jonathan Stewart a riskier play.
Update: HC Ron Rivera said Williams will only be used in an "emergency situation." Stewart is safe as a RB2 for Week 16.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:47
Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is probable for this weekend's game against the Browns. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We still doubt that he'll be at full strength as a runner less than 2 weeks after his car crash. That makes Newton more of a QB2 against a solid Browns pass defense.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:45
Bills RB C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He averaged 11.9 touches for 56.6 total yards per game before going down. We're expecting 6-10 touches this Sunday in his 1st action since Week 7. That makes Spiller just a RB3 flier or daily-league dart throw. Fred Jackson remains a solid RB2 in a plus matchup.

The Indianapolis Colts took to the practice field on Friday minus their top receiver. T.Y. Hilton missed his third straight practice with the hamstring injury he sustained in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans, per ESPN.com's Mike Wells. He was later listed as questionable for Sunday's critical matchup with the Cowboys. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take: Hilton described himself as "50-50". With the Colts unlikely to improve their playoff seed in the final two weeks, its likely that Hilton will be on the Inactive list Sunday resulting in increased reps for Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks at the wideout spots.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:29
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice again on Friday. He's looking less and less likely to play against the Cowboys this weekend. In fact, beat writer Mike Chappell is "convinced" that Hilton won't play. We'll have his official Week 16 designation later today.

Could be used in an emergency situation
Running back DeAngelo Williams listed as questionable. Rivera said he's getting close, but probably not enough to play. (David Newton on Twitter)
FF Today's Take: Head coach Ron Rivera went to say that Williams could be used in an emergency. This is good news for Jonathan Stewart owners as Stewart should see the bulk of carries for the Panthers against the Browns that just gave up a monster rushing day to the Bengals.

Status for Sunday still up in the air
The Falcons are hoping that rest and treatment will help heal wide receiver Julio Jones' hip injury. The star receiver was not on the field during the open portion of practice and was not expected to practice on Friday. Jones has not practiced since he was hurt late in a Dec. 8 loss at the Packers and did not return. After trying to run Saturday, he didn't play against the Steelers. Jones has a big test run on Saturday before the team leaves for New Orleans. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)
FF Today's Take: Head coach Mike Smith stated in early in the week that Jones would likely be able to play but this is far from certain. He is shaping up to be a gametime decision. The Falcons face the Saints at 1:00 pm Eastern on Sunday.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 09:02
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a Friday morning radio interview that he's "pretty positive" that RB DeMarco Murray (finger) will play against the Colts this weekend. The reports on Murray have gotten more and more positive throughout the week. At this point, we'd be surprised if he didn't play. Questions about Murray's usage remain, but he'll be impossible to bench in season-long leagues if active.
