|Sanu was limited in practice on Thursday with a sore knee.
Analysis: Sanu has 17 catches for 190 yards and a touchdown over the past three games.
|12/14/2017||Cameron Brate, TB, TE|
|Brate is limited in practice this week due to a lingering hip issue.
Analysis: Brate only has fantasy value if he hauls in touchdown passes. He has six on the season, but only two in the past eight weeks.
|12/14/2017||JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pit, WR|
|Smith-Schuster has been added to the injury report with a hamstring issue.
Analysis: Smith-Schuster, who was suspended for the team's game against the Ravens, has 22 catches for 393 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games.
|12/14/2017||Casey Hayward, LAC, CB|
|Hayward is questionable for Saturday's game because of a calf injury.
Analysis: It might be best to avoid Hayward in your IDP leagues.
|12/14/2017||Jalen Ramsey, Jax, CB|
|Ramsey was limited in practice Thursday because of a sore back.
Analysis: Ramsey has dealt with various ailments throughout the season. He's expected to suit up this weekend against DeAndre Hopkins and the Texans.
|12/14/2017||DeAndre Hopkins, Hou, WR|
|Hopkins did not practice Thursday due to a toe injury.
Analysis: Hopkins has the potential to hold value even with T.J. Yates under center, so this should be a concern for the Texans and fantasy owners. He had 11 catches for 149 yards and two scores - both from Yates - last weekend.
|12/14/2017||T.J. Yates, Hou, QB|
|Yates will get his first start this season Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Deshaun Watson out for the season with a knee injury and backup Tom Savage recovering from a concussion.
Analysis: Yates subbed for Savage last week and was 14 of 26 for 175 yards and threw two touchdown passes in a 26-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked one time. Yates added 31 rushing yards on three carries.
|12/14/2017||Giovani Bernard, Cin, RB|
|Bernard was limited in practice again on Thursday.
Analysis: If healthy, Bernard could settle back into a backup role as Joe Mixon is recovering from a concussion and could return in Week 15.
|12/14/2017||Alshon Jeffery, Phi, WR|
|Jeffery did not practice Thursday due to an illness.
Analysis: He's expected to recover in time for Sunday's game, but keep an eye on this situation.
|12/14/2017||Elijah McGuire, NYJ, RB|
|McGuire was limited Thursday due to an ankle injury.
Analysis: If healthy, McGuire could begin to get more opportunities in Week 15 if Matt Forte is continued to be phased out.
|12/14/2017||Matt Forte, NYJ, RB|
|Forte isn't practicing again on Thursday.
Analysis: Forte is considered questionable due to a sore knee and might not be a fantasy option from here on out as the Jets begin to look to the future.
|12/14/2017||Adam Shaheen, Chi, TE|
|Shaheen is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lions because of a chest injury.
Analysis: Shaheen was thought to have had a breakout performance with four catches and a touchdown against the Bengals. This would certainly put a dent in that momentum.
|12/14/2017||Sterling Shepard, NYG, WR|
|Shepard was limited in practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury.
Analysis: We thought Shepard might have had more of a presence in New York's offense with Eli Manning back under center, but he only had two catches on Sunday.
|12/14/2017||Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB|
|Fournette isn't practicing Thursday due to a quad injury.
Analysis: We believe the Jaguars are just being cautious with Fournette and he'll be out there against the Texans. However, keep an eye on this situation.
|12/13/2017||Cam Newton, Car, QB|
|Newton was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a sore shoulder.
Analysis: He's been dealing with this issue for much of the season. There's no way Newton is going to miss this weekend's game.
|12/13/2017||Adam Thielen, Min, WR|
|Thielen was upgraded to a full participant on Thursday after he was previous limited during the week.
Analysis: Thielen has been outstanding for the Vikings, so this is good news. He has 37 catches for 632 yards and four scores in his last six games.
|12/13/2017||Jerick McKinnon, Min, RB|
|McKinnon was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a sore shoulder.
Analysis: McKinnon didn't see much action in the second half on Sunday and this could be the reason why. Keep an eye on this situation.
|12/13/2017||Kyle Rudolph, Min, TE|
|Rudolph did not practice Wednesday or Thursday due to an ankle injury.
Analysis: Rudolph apparently was injured late in Week 14 and was in a walking boot afterwards. He could be in jeopardy of sitting out this weekend.
|12/13/2017||Mike Wallace, Bal, WR|
|Wallace did not practice Wednesday and Thursday due to an ankle injury, but he insists that he'll be available Sunday.
Analysis: Wallace has shown signs of life of late, totaling 13 catches for 236 yards in his last three games while being targeted 24 times.
|12/13/2017||Mike Davis, Sea, RB|
|Davis is practicing Wednesday despite dealing with injured ribs.
Analysis: Davis has carried the load for the Seahawks the past two weeks, so this is a situation worth keeping an eye on.
