Emmanuel Sanders – Denver Broncos Wide Receiver is listed as a game time decision against the Chiefs. He suffered an ankle injury and hasn’t practiced for three days in a row. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan ready just in case he can’t suit up.
Matt Forte – OUT (more below)
Eddie Lacy – OUT (more below)
Eddie Royal – OUT: Chicago Bears Wide Receiver will not play Sunday against the Rams.
Vincent Jackson – OUT: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Receiver will not play against the Dallas Cowboys.
Kendall Wright – OUT: Tennessee Titans Wide Receiver will not play against the Carolina Panthers.
John Brown – Cardinals Wide Receiver inadvertently destroyed fantasy owners during Week 8 when he was activated 45 minutes before game time but never took the field at all. This left fantasy owners with a big fat zero. Once again, Brown is listed as a game time decision with a hamstring injury. Expect him to play in this big division game against Seattle, but TEMPER your expectations.
Davante Parker – Miami Dolphins Wide Receiver is listed as questionable this week against the Eagles. Even if he plays, he is the fourth receiver on the depth chart and doesn’t need to be picked up in fantasy.
Calvin Johnson – Detroit Lions Wide Receiver is listed as questionable against the Packers. He is confident that he will play even though he has been limited in practice all week. Expect him to play barring any setbacks.
Josh McCown – The Browns quarterback is listed as questionable against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has a rib injury and Johnny Manziel has been practicing all week and is likely to start. Mike Pettine has yet to name the starter. If active and healthy, McCown will play, but expect Manziel to start.
Teddy Bridgewater – Minnesota Vikings Quarterback is listed as questionable this week against the Raiders. After a full practice Friday, Head coach Mike Zimmer has full confidence that Bridgewater will be able to make the start.
Ben Roethlisberger – Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is set to back up Landry Jones against Cleveland this week. He is not expected to play unless Jones goes down with an injury.
Peyton Manning – Denver Broncos Quarterback is listed as probable with a foot injury, but should start against the Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Kubiak expressed some concern, but barring an unlikely setback, Manning will play.
Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks Running Back is listed as questionable against the Arizona Cardinals. Despite battling injuries all season, Pete Carroll said that he expects him to play. If he does not play, rookie Thomas Rawls will be the starter and currently leads the team in rushing.
DeAngelo Williams – Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back is listed as probable against the Browns. Expect him to play and is a high end option in this favorable matchup against Cleveland.
Matt Forte – Chicago Bears Running Back suffered an MCL sprain injury and is listed as questionable. Don’t expect him to play this week or for Chicago coach John Fox to EVER provide a realistic time line for his return.
Eddie Lacy – Green Bay Packers Running Back is listed as questionable with a groin injury, but expect him to play this week and split carries behind the team’s new starter, James Starks.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins – Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tight End will not play against the Dallas Cowboys. Expect Mike Evans to carry a heavy workload on offense once again.
Larry Donnell – New York Giants Tight End will not play against the New England Patriots. Will Tye will get the start and play.
