Every NFL team playing Sunday is required to issue a final injury report on Friday. Every team is playing Sunday of Week 17. There is no Monday night game.

Here we review all of the fantasy-relevant players dealing with ailments and how to plan accordingly. Keep in mind that the inactive list isn't due until 90 minutes before kickoff. As you start to put the final touches on those lineups, have a fallback plan or two at the ready in the event you will be dealing with an ailing player.


Matt Forte, RB, Bears - Back

Hard to imagine Forte not saying goodbye to the fans in Chicago as this appears his final home game at Soldier Field.

Bilal Powell, RB, Jets - Ankle

Powell hasn't practiced all week making him doubtful to play.

Ameer Abdullah, RB, Lions – Shoulder

Pierre Thomas, RB, Redskins - Knee

Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions - Ankle

Michael Floyd, WR, Cardinals - Knee

Floyd did not practice this week until a limited session on Friday. You'll need to monitor his availability.

DeSean Jackson, WR, Redskins - Knee

Redskins have nothing to play for in Week 17.

Martavis Bryant, WR, Steelers - Illness

Bryant had a full practice on Friday and should be fine.

Danny Amendola, WR, Patriots - Knee

Even if he's active, the Pats would be wise to keep Amendola's usage to a minimum.

Stevie Johnson, WR, Chargers - Groin

Travis Benjamin, WR, Browns - Ankle

Brandon LaFell, WR, Patriots – Foot


Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals - Thumb

Johnny Manziel, QB, Browns - Concussion

Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Colts - Shoulder

Andrew Luck, QB, Colts - Abdomen

It will be either Ryan Lindley or Josh Freeman under center.

LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills - Knee

Karlos Williams will see the bulk of the work. Mike Gillislee will still challenge for double-digit touches.

Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers - Foot

Foswhitt Whittaker, RB, Panthers - Ankle

Cameron Artis-Payne and Mike Tolbert will form an uninspiring committee.

T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jaguars - Knee

Don't be shocked if Jonas Gray is the starter over Denard Robinson.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seahawks - Abdomen

Seattle will once gain roll out the three-headed monster of Fred Jackson, Christine Michael, and Bryce Brown.

Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons - Concussion

Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots - Foot

Cecil Shorts, WR, Texans - Hamstring

Nate Washington is a legit sleeper.

Marques Colston, WR, Saints – Chest


Todd Gurley, RB, Rams - Foot

Gurley is in a walking boot so Tre Mason will get the start.

Matt Jones, RB, Redskins - Hip
