COACHING MOVES - WEEK 15 INJURY UPDATE

As we prepare you for your Week 15 fantasy matchups, there are a ton of injuries to monitor through the weekend. Some news is good, and some not so good, but either way you need to be on top of your players' status as game time approaches on Sunday morning in order to set the best lineup possible. Here are some of this week's key injuries to note. And don't forget to double check injury status on Sunday morning!

COACHES' CRIB NOTES

• Tyler Eifert (concussion) has been ruled out for the Bengals game against the 49ers. Despite the good matchup, fantasy owners will need to find tight end help elsewhere while Cincinnati plays it safe with its young and extremely talented tight end.

• C.J. Anderson (ankle) is questionable against the Steelers as he recovers from an ankle injury that kept him sidelined last week. We don't like his chances of producing fantasy points since he'll likely be limited if he does play. Plus the Steelers run defense has been one of the best in the league this season.

• Spencer Ware (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. If he does start, he'll likely split the workload with Charcandrick West. Neither back has been very effective the last couple of weeks, so as long as this backfield is a timeshare split, both runners will be risky fantasy plays.

• T.J. Yeldon (knee) is doubtful for the Jaguars matchup against the Falcons on Sunday. Yeldon's likely absence paves the way for Denard Robinson to start against an Atlanta defense that has bled points to fantasy running backs this season.

• Charles Clay (back) has been ruled out for the Bills game against Washington on Sunday. Clay hadn't been much of a factor anyway but he's always a threat to get into the end zone as he proved back in Week 13. Unfortunately that was only his third score of the season.

• Julian Edelman (foot) returned to Patriots practice this week raising the hopes of some fantasy owners. But he's officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans which means he's unlikely to play. There's no real reason for New England to rush their start slot receiver back into action, and fantasy owners should be planning around him.

• Jonathan Stewart (foot) won't play Sunday when the Panthers take on the Giants. That leaves some combination of Fozzy Whittaker, Mike Tolbert and rookie Cameron Artis-Payne to carry the load. Our best guess is as good as yours, but it would make sense for Whittaker to get the first crack out of the backfield. Tread with caution here.

• Andre Ellington (toe) returned to practice on Friday for the first time in a few weeks. We don't like his chances of being productive as he works his way back from a turf toe injury, which leaves David Johnson as a solid RB1 option for the third straight week.
