    Posted 12/22/14 2:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens after hurting his hamstring in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is 18-for-35 for 143 yards, a rushing touchdown and two interceptions in his two starts this year.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer is likely to start the Browns finale against the Ravens. Manziel is expected to be given an opportunity to be Cleveland's starting quarterback in 2015, despite his struggles this season.

  • Steven Jackson - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 12/22/14 2:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) is expected to be ready for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Devonta Freeman played well in Jackson's absence Sunday. Even if Jackson plays against Carolina, expect Freeman to see an expanded role.

  • Steven Jackson - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 12/22/14 10:37am ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (quadriceps) suffered a quadriceps injury in the second quarter of the Week 16 game against the Saints and did not return.

    Huddle Up: According to reports Jackson should be back for the Week 17 game against the Panthers for the NFC South title. Devonta Freeman filled in nicely for Jackson with a nice 31-yard TD and 48 yards receiving on three catches. He may have earned himself some extra work going forward.

  • Johnny Manziel - QB - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 12/22/14 10:31am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) left the team's Week 16 game early because of a hamstring injury and did not return.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer took over and went 7-13-134 with one TD. He also had an interception and was sacked three times. At this point Manziel is considered questionable for the Week 17 finale against Baltimore.

  • Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 12/22/14 10:24am ET

    Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson posted six catches for 65 yards in the Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens, giving him 1,002 receptions for his career. He is the 10th player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.

    Huddle Up: Johnson was targeted a game-high 13 times by QB Case Keenum's 42 throws. That was also a season high target amount. Look for more of the same as the Texans wrap the season up by hosting the Jaguars in Week 17.

  • Calvin Johnson - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 12/22/14 10:24am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) hauled in six receptions for a game-high 103 yards in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, as he went over 1,000 yards receiving for the fifth straight season, and sixth time in eight NFL seasons. He left the game briefly due to an ankle issue, but was able to return.

    Huddle Up: Johnson's ankle should be fine after Golden Tate was tackled into the back of his legs while blocking on a screen. He only missed a few plays. The Lions face the Packers in a nice Week 17 matchup for Johnson

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/22/14 10:24am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) was removed in the final moments of the first quarter of the Week 16 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He was seen grimacing in pain on the sidelines.

    Huddle Up: Following Sunday's win over the Colts, Murray admitted his broken hand was "hurting throughout the game." He didn't catch a pass for the first time this season, but gutted out a 58 yards and a score on 22 carries. With possibly nothing on the line next week, don't expect Murray to see any action.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 12/22/14 10:24am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 16 but it isn't considered to be serious.

    Huddle Up: With the AFC North title on the line next week against the Bengals, look for Big Ben to be on the field.

  • Mark Sanchez - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 12/22/14 9:03am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start in Week 17 against the New York Giants instead of QB Matt Barkley, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

    Huddle Up: If your fantasy team has been riding Sanchez since he took over for the injured Nick Foles, and your championship game is in Week 17, then you're all set. Both of you.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 12/22/14 9:02am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) tweaked his calf in the Week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but said Sunday, Dec. 21, that he expects to play in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions. 'I'll be OK for next week,' Rodgers said.

    Huddle Up: The Packers have a week to get Rodgers ready, and they'll need him in the game that will decide the NFC North.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 12/21/14 9:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (illness) did not start the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to an upset stomach.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was seen in his uniform on the sidelines but Robert Turbin got the start for Seattle. This is obviously a crushing blow to owners playing in Fantasy Super Bowls starting Lynch.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 12/21/14 9:15pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry had eight receptions for 31 yards in the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He broke Terry Kirby's team record for receptions by a rookie with 79.

    Huddle Up: Landry has been a reception monster this year, despite not being used much during the first month of the season. He'll be a highly sought after receiver in PPR leagues next year.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 12/20/14 6:30pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16. Edelman didn't receive final clearance from the concussion protocol to play Sunday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Look for Brandon LaFell and Shane Vereen to see an increase in targets this week. Both are strong starts against the Jets.

  • Peyton Manning - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/20/14 4:29pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) took a similar amount of snaps Saturday, Dec. 20, as he has all season, according to head coach John Fox, before being listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Manning is expected to start Monday night against the Bengals and he's a QB1 for Fantasy Super Bowls.

  • Frank Gore - RB - San Francisco 49ers
    Posted 12/20/14 4:27pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) will play Saturday, Dec. 20, against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde has been ruled out, so Gore sets up to be a RB2 for Week 16.

  • DeMarco Murray - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 12/20/14 4:27pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (hand) reportedly plans on playing this week despite a broken bone in his hand.

    Huddle Up: Murray looks like he's going to give it a go against a Colts rush defense that allows 4.3 yards per carry. However, he could be running behind a line missing starters Doug Free and Zack Martin. Still, Murray is obviously a Top 5 fantasy RB as long as he's active.

  • Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
    Posted 12/20/14 4:27pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) will officially start Sunday, Dec. 21, against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Newton won't be able to run as much be he's still a QB1 option against the Browns defense.

  • Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/20/14 4:27pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is not participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, because he was sent home with flu-like symptoms.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos don't play until Monday night so Sanders will have two days to get healthy. He's still expected to play and Sanders will be a WR2 against the Bengals defense.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 12/20/14 1:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (hip) availability for Week 16 will be determined by his pregame workout, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: One report says Jones will definitely play and another suggests it will depend how he looks in pre-game workouts. The bottom line is Jones is going to be a game-time decision and owners likely won't know his status until Sunday morning. If Jones plays, owners should roll with him for Fantasy Super Bowls.

  • Peyton Manning - QB - Denver Broncos
    Posted 12/19/14 11:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was officially limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, but he threw more than he did than the day prior, and he threw in individual drills. Manning is on track to play in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Manning will start against the Bengals. He's no longer the dominant fantasy force of earlier in the season but Manning is still a QB1 for Week 16.
