Nick Mangold Headshot

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) is visiting specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina on Thursday.

The veteran suffered a setback as he tried to make a return from an ankle injury that has kept him sidelined since Week 7. Depending on the news, Mangold could be shut down for the remainder of the season. Wesley Johnson will continue to fill in if Mangold remains out.

Vince Carter Headshot

Vince Carter remains questionable for Thursday.

This is a positive development as the veteran has been ruled out the day before each game. However, Carter's fantasy upside is limited so owners can look elsewhere.

Seth Curry Headshot

Seth Curry remains without a timetable to return.

The positive is that Curry has been working out so he could be in line for a return possibly this weekend. Jonathan Gibson and Justin Anderson will receive more minutes while Curry is out, but they don't have much upside.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill will not play Thursday.

This has been a frustrating season for the guard as Hill is having a strong season by averaging 20 points, but has been plagued by many ailments that has kept him sidelined. Fantasy owners need to hold on to Hill, but it would be nice if he can stay healthy for a long stretch of time.

Darrell Arthur Headshot

Darrell Arthur started the second half of Wednesday's game in place of Kenneth Faried.

Faried was benched due to a coaches decision after the Nuggets appeared sluggish in the first half. There isn't much upside with Arthur or Faried so both can be considered deep options at this point.

Kenley Jansen Headshot

Nationals are making a late push for closer Kenley Jansen.

The Nationals have had to pivot a few times already this off-season and the latest involves acquiring a closer after losing out to Aroldis Chapman to to the Yankees. Jansen is coming off a monster season in which he saved 47 games and pitched to a 1.83 ERA, 0.67 WHIP along with a 104:11 K:BB ratio in 68 2/3 innings. Jansen would continue to be an elite closer in fantasy.

Adrian Peterson Headshot

Adrian Peterson (knee) says he plans to return to action if the Vikings have a shot at the playoffs.

The Vikings still have a chance for the playoffs despite losing their last two games and if they find a way to win in Week 14, they will be back in the hunt. Peterson has eyed a Week 15 or 16 comeback so there's a strong chance he returns. The question is can fantasy owners trust a player who has been out all season in the fantasy football playoffs? That decision will ultimately come down to how much risk an owner likes, but there's no doubt if Peterson is truly healthy, he will be an elite option.
