Mason Crosby Headshot

Mason Crosby (illness) practiced in full on Thursday.

Added 5 hours ago Source
Crosby will be good to go, and could be called upon often against Atlanta. He is always a top option in DFS.
Jeff Janis Headshot

Jeff Janis (quad) practiced in full on Thursday.

Added 5 hours ago Source
Janis spent most of the year buried on the WR depth chart, managing only 11 grabs. He could see some increased time against the Falcons with Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Geronimo Alison all nursing injuries. Stay tuned to this situation, as Janis has come up big in the past.
Jamie Collins Headshot

Browns are close to finalizing a multi-year contract with Jamie Collins.

Added 7 hours ago Source
This makes total sense for the Browns, especially after acquiring him during the season. Collins play was average after the deal, but the shock of going from one of the top franchises in the league to Cleveland would likely do that to any player. He makes for a solid player to build around on defense. For fantasy purposes, he makes their DEF better, but they are still a few playmakers away from being fantasy relevant on a consistent basis.
Davante Adams Headshot

Davante Adams (ankle) will be a game-time decision for the NFC Championship game.

Added 9 hours ago Source
He hasn't practiced all week and his status for Sunday's game against the Falcons is up in the air. Even if he does suit up, it's fair to assume that he will be much less than 100%, putting his effectiveness into question. Even if he's little more than a decoy he could be of use to Rodgers and the Packers however, since both Geronimo Allison and Jordy Nelson are questionable as well, and the Packers need bodies. Randall Cobb, Ty Montgomery, and Jared Cook will be target hogs on Sunday. Jeff Janis and Richard Rodgers will have to step up to fill in as best as they can.
Tyrod Taylor Headshot

Buffalo has hired former Denver offensive coordinator Rick Dennison as their OC.

Added 10 hours ago Source
Dennison was previously with the Broncos and has big game experience as both a player and a coach having been in six total Super Bowls. Buffalo is overhauling their whole coaching staff and it will be in cooperation with him as to who the starting QB will be, and if Tyrod Taylor convinces them to pay the option or reconfigure his contract.
Martellus Bennett Headshot

Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited at practice on Thursday.

Added 11 hours ago Source
Limited practice have been a theme of his this season in New England and they haven't really hurt his production yet. He has been a big part of the offense since Gronk went down early in the year and that should continue again against a team in the Steelers who was questionable against tight ends much of the year.
Malcolm Mitchell Headshot

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited at practice on Thursday.

Added 12 hours ago Source
Mitchell has been limited this week in practice after missing the last game against Houston with the knee ailment. The limited nature of the practice sessions will likely give him a questionable tag for the game but in all likelihood he should play against Pittsburgh. With the way the Patriots offense has been rolling of late, he may not factor that much into the game plan even if he goes.
Chris Hogan Headshot

Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited at practice on Thursday.

Added 12 hours ago Source
Hogan has been given the limited designation a couple of days in a row now, but he seems on track to play this weekend. New England simply doesn't want to use him up in practice rather than having him ready for the field against Pittsburgh. He will be a WR3 option for DFS and playoff leagues.
James Starks Headshot

James Starks (concussion) did not practice on Thursday.

Added 12 hours ago Source
Starks hasn't played since Week 14 with the concussion and it doesn't look like he's anywhere close to playing as of yet either. Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael have taken the majority of the snaps out of the backfield for the last several weeks and even if Starks is healthy enough to play against the Falcons, there are likely very little, if any, snaps for Starks out of the backfield.
Ladarius Green Headshot

Ladarius Green (concussion/illness) did not practice on Thursday.

Added 12 hours ago Source
Green was limited on Wednesday but has now downgraded to a DNP, which isn't great news at the end of the week. Green has missed most of the season due to varying injuries but the last four games including playoffs have been with the concussion. If he can't go, Jesse James will be the starter at tight end again against the Patriots.
