Antonio Brown Headshot

Antonio Brown was fined $10,000 for his locker room video incident last week.

A dumb move by Brown, but it does not have any bearing on Sunday's game. He still remains a top option no matter the matchup in any format.

Jimmy Garoppolo Headshot

Patriots are open to trading back-up quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo per report.

Garoppolo proved to be more than capable of running an NFL offense as the fill in for the suspended Tom Brady in 2016. There are plenty of QB needy teams who are rumored to be interested. Among them are the 49ers, the Bears, and the Browns. The youngster will carry a heavy price tag if he is traded.

J.J. Barea Headshot

Mavericks guard J.J. Barea is expected to be out until after the all-start break after re-injuring his calf on Friday.

Barea had a strong start to 2016, but had his season derailed because of injury. Seth Curry becomes a guy to own, and has played well with the added workload he has gotten in Barea's absence.

Luol Deng Headshot

Luol Deng (wrist) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game.

Deng practiced Saturday and it is widely believed he will play, but it will not be known until shortly before tip-off against he Mavs. He was a fringe rosterable player in most formats with averages of 8.1 points, and 5.8 rebounds. It is unclear if he will play the same role upon his return with rookie Brandon Ingram coming on in recent weeks.

Julio Jones Headshot

Julio Jones (toe) is officially active.

Jones' status was never in question to begin with, as he has played through ailments this season. He is always a strong play in DFS, and continues that today against a shoddy Packers' secondary.

Tyler Johnson Headshot

Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is questionable for Monday.

The NBA's leading scorer in the fourth quarter is trying to get his shoulder healthy before he comes back. He sat out Saturday against the Bucks, and Dion Waiters benefits from getting the minutes as long as Johnson is out.

Morgan Burnett Headshot

Morgan Burnett (quad) is officially active.

Burnett was not expected to suit up after hurting himself in the Packers' win against Dallas. He will give it a go, but if he proves to be unable to go all out, Kentrell Brice figures to be the fill in , and it will have a negative impact in the middle of an already weak secondary against the Falcons' offense.

Jordy Nelson Headshot

Jordy Nelson (ribs) is officially active.

Nelson is rumored to be playing in a Kevlar vest to protect his injured ribs, so his mobility could be in question. There is no word of him being on a snap count, and with the rest of the WR corp being banged up, Nelson will be needed Sunday.
