RotoExperts.com delivers all the important player news with in-depth fantasy analysis for Week 15.
- Matt Moore (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 16, but he did fully practice on Friday. While he should start, Moore should not be used in anything but two-quarterback fantasy leagues.
- Matt Ryan (toe) was limited in practices throughout the week but is expected to start against Buffalo. Still, Ryan cannot be counted on for acceptable fantasy totals, so keep him reserved during fantasy championship week.
- Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle, foot) missed practices this week, but he needs the rest to make sure he can play on Sundays. Use him as a flex option this week, as he has played through the injuries with no major setbacks.
- Correll Buckhalter (ankle) was limited in late-week practices. He might not see enough quality touches against his former team, the Eagles, so keep him reserved.
- Justin Fargas (knee) was held out of practices throughout the week. Keep him reserved and expect Michael Bush to provide the best fantasy production among the Oakland backs.
- Steven Jackson (back) was not able to practice throughout the week, but missing workouts has become customary for him late in the season. He will still suit and deliver quality fantasy numbers.
- Julius Jones (ribs) was able to practice in full by Thursday but is listed as questionable to face the Packers. However, most smart fantasy owners have stopped using him by this point of their seasons. RB Justin Forsett should at least see a significant share of the workload and is a useful flex starter in larger leagues.
- Fred Taylor (ankle) is listed as questionable. Fantasy players should not gamble and use him this deep into their playoffs.
- Michael Turner (ankle) was held out of practices throughout the week. It's not looking good for him, and fantasy owners should give starting consideration to RB Jason Snelling against Buffalo's soft run defense.
- Brian Westbrook (head) is listed as probable to face the Broncos but might not see enough field time to be useful in fantasy leagues. Even though his workload will be limited, his presence makes RBs LeSean McCoy and Leonard Weaver less useful. Fantasy owners should simply steer clear of the situation this week.
- Antonio Bryant (groin) was limited in practices throughout the week. He has been statistically erratic this season and is a risky play who is best reserved in the fantasy postseason.
- Braylon Edwards (knee) was back in full practices by Thursday and will start against the Colts. He has been unreliable for fantasy purposes this season, so only consider him for use in larger leagues.
- Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was a full participant in practices by Thursday. He is a must-start in an all-important fantasy playoff week.
- Devin Hester (calf) was limited in practices this week. He is not reliable when healthy, so keep him reserved in Week 16.
- Devin Thomas (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 16. WR Malcolm Kelly is expected to start in his place but should not be used in fantasy playoff games.
- Hines Ward (hamstring) was able to fully practice by Thursday. Keep him active, as he will be a key performer for the Steelers as they try to keep their postseason hopes alive against Baltimore. WR Mike Wallace (knee) was also practicing fully by Thursday and should be considered a viable No. 3 option, especially in larger leagues.
- Todd Heap (chest) was able to practice in full by Thursday. He has not been a reliable fantasy player this season, even for adequate production, and should only be used if you are reaching deep for a starting option.
- Jeremy Shockey (toe) was limited in practices this week. He has been regularly disappointing in recent games that he's been able to play, so consider another option for Week 16.
- Kellen Winslow (knee) was back at full practices by Thursday and will start against the Saints. He remains a must-start for most of his fantasy owners, as he can often provide solid stats against any opponent.
