Vikings inactives - FB Zach Line, LB Anthony Barr, DT Sharrif Floyd, CB Robert Blanton, OT Carter Bykowski, G David Yankey, G Charlie Johnson
The afternoon inactives will be up in 5 minutes but we want you alert to the news that WR Kendall Wright and RB Ryan Mathews are both OUT for today's game. You will need to play alternates for both.
Browns Inactives - RB Glenn Winston, TE Gary Barnidge, OL Vinston Painter, LB Karlos Dansby, DB K'Waun Williams, DB Tashaun Gipson, DB Robert Nelson
Colts Inactives - T Andrew McDonald, G Hugh Thornton, G Joe Reitz, C A.Q. Shipley, DT Montori Hughes, LB Henoc Muamba, CB Jalil Brown
Bills Inactives - FB Frank Summers, WR Deonte Thompson, TE Chris Gragg, T Cyrus Kouandjio, DE Jaeius Wynn, LB Randell Johnson, S Da'Norris Searcy
Raiders Inactives – G Tony Bergstrom, TE Brian Leonhardt, DT Stacy McGee, WR Denarius Moore, QB Matt McGloin, LB Sio Moore, T Menelik Watson
Texans Inactives – DB Josh Aubrey, DB Andre Hal, WR Andre Johnson, QB Thad Lewis, LB Whitney Mercilus, G Xavier Su’a-Filo
Packers Inactives - QB Scott Tolzien, WR Jeff Janis, TE Justin Perillo, C Garth Gerhart, DT Bruce Gaston, LB Carl Bradford, CB Davon House
Panthers Inactives - QB Cam Newton, RB DeAngelo Williams, T David Foucault, G Amini Silatolu, DT Micanor Regis, CB James Dockery, S Robert Lester
Williams being out is good news for Jonathan Stewart owners. He’s a decent start today since he’ll get the volume he needs to be successful.
Ravens Inactives - RB Lorenzo Taliaferro, WR Michael Campanaro, G/C Gino Gradkowski, DE DeAngelo Tyson, DT Terrence Cody, LB Arthur Brown, CB Antoine Cason
Taliaferro wasn’t expected to play. His absence bumps up Bernard Pierce just a little bit but not enough to trust for a spot in your lineup during a playoff week.
Andre Johnson is out and will not play today. You can bump DeAndre Hopkins up a couple of notches in your rankings, as he now will be the clear WR1 for Houston in this game.
Redskins Inactives – QB Kirk Cousins, WR Leonard Hankerson, DE Jason Hatcher, RB Roy Helu, G Josh LeRibeus, SS Brandon Meriweather, LB Keenan Robinson
DeSean Jackson is active and will play. He could still be limited by injury, and of course, the QB situation. He’s a boom or bust play with some upside and he carries some risk because of the injury, but play him if you don’t have other options.
Giants Inactives – G James Brewer, LB James Davidson, G Eric Herman, CB Jayron Hosley, RB Chris Ogbonnaya, LB Jacquian Williams
Chiefs Inactives – WR Donnie Avery, DE Allen Bailey, T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, CB Phillip Gaines, TE Richard Gordon, C Eric Kush, QB Aaron Murray
Dolphins Inactives - RB LaMichael James, G Nate Garner, G Billy Turner, LB Jelani Jenkins, LB Koa Misi, LB Jonathan Freeny, LB Chris McCain
Falcons Inactives - QB Sean Renfree, WR Julio Jones, T Jonathan SCott, LB Tyler Starr, LB James Anderson, CB Robert Alford, S William Moore
Harry Douglas is a viable replacement for Jones if you don't have other options and can still obtain him.
Steelers Inactives - QB Landry Jones, RB Dri Archer, WR Justin Brown, T Marcus Gilbert, DE Clifton Geathers, LB James Harrison, CB Ike Taylor
Jaguars Inactives - WR Denard Robinson, G Tyler Shatley, DE Andre Branch, LB Khairi Fortt, LB A.J. Edds, CB Jeremy Harris, CB Teddy Williams
Bengals Inactives - QB A.J. McCarron, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, WR James Wright, TE Jermaine Gresham, G Tanner Hawkinson, DE Margus Hunt, CB Terence Newman
Gresham is a bit of a surprise on the inactive list. Mohamed Sanu gets a bump in value with Gresham out but don’t count on Andy Dalton having a quality game against the Browns.
Buccaneers Inactives - WR Robert Herron, WR Solomon Patton, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, T Anthony Collins, DT Clinton McDonald, LB Mason Foster, S Major Wright
Patriots Inactives - RB James White, T Cameron Fleming, OL Jordan Devey, DT Dominique Easley, DL Zach Moore, LB Chris White, CB Alfonzo Dennard
10:35 Update - Julio Jones will NOT play during Week 15, so now you must use another option. Harry Douglas is a suitable substitute, as he will likely receive a solid portion of the targets that Jones would normally get and the matchup is quite favorable.
If you’re playing today, congratulations; you’ve worked hard and made great decisions. As we have all season, we will post the game inactives and update injury news throughout the morning, and again prior to the afternoon games. The most recent posts will appear at the top with a timestamp. Check back often, especially after 11:30 AM, when NFL teams make their inactives available. Good luck to you in the Week 15 playoffs. Here’s hoping you continue your march to the Championship.
Players Listed as OUT
QB Nick Foles, QB Zach Mettenberger, QB Cam Newton, RB Denard Robinson, RB Roy Helu, RB Montee Ball, WR Steve Johnson, WR Cody Latimer, TE Brian Leonhardt, WR Denarius Moore, WR Mike Williams, TE Gary Barnidge, TE Garrett Graham
Game Time Decisions
RB Eddie Lacy – Lacy has a hip injury and a tough matchup this week. If he plays, though, you really can’t bench him. If you have better options you should use them. Otherwise, keep your fingers crossed that the hip doesn’t act up during the game.
RB Rashad Jennings – There are lots of folks who believe Jennings should be shut down given that the Giants have nothing to play for but pride. If he does play today, the juicy matchup with the hapless Redskins makes him a tempting play. However, Andre Williams will almost certainly take a big chunk of the workload, and if he plays well early in the game, Jennings might not see the volume of snaps needed to make Fantasy owners happy. The risk seems too great here in a playoff week. Hopefully, you have other options.
WR Julio Jones – We’ve heard very little good news about Jones this week. The latest was that even if he does play he could be used in a decoy role. That kind of news gives Fantasy owners indigestion. If you have another receiver with the potential to put up decent numbers in a good matchup, you owe it to yourself to use him. We’ll update the news on Jones whenever it becomes available, so check back often right up until the inactives are posted. If you can still grab Harry Douglas, he would be a viable start if Jones is out and you’re desperate to fill his spot.
WR Roddy White – White has battled injuries for several weeks and played. He is expected to play today and could have a big game if Julio Jones doesn’t play.
RB Ryan Mathews – The latest word is that he is very unlikely to play. With the Chargers likely to get into a shootout
