12/14/2017 Mohamed Sanu, Atl, WR
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.
