The following is a list of injured players for Week 16 (Dec. 20-24) and all the fantasy implications:
Dec. 23, 8:00pm EST
Inactives: QB Darrell Hackney (3rd QB), WR Brandon Stokley, WR Taylor Jacobs, RB Mike Bell , LB Ian Gold, DT Isaac Snell, DE Larry Birdine, DE Paul Carrington.
Fantasy take: WR Robert Ferguson will see more work with Rice listed as inactive. The loss of Winfield and absence of Doss makes Washington's wide receivers more attractive on Sunday night.
Inactives: QB Tim Hasselbeck (3rd QB), WR Jamaica Rector, DB Bhawoh Jue, FB Tim Castille, LB Brandon Johnson, G Vincent Keydrick, DE Bo Schobel, DT Ross Kolodziej.
Inactives: QB Kyle Boller (3rd QB), RB Cory Ross, LB Ray Lewis, T Jared Gaither, DT Amon Gordon, TE Daniel Wilcox, TE Todd Heap, WR Demetrius Williams.
New York Jets
Inactives: QB Marques Tuiasosopo (3rd QB), P Ben Graham, WR Chris Davis, CB Andre Dyson, G Adrien Clarke, T Jacob Bender, TE Sean Ryan, DT Kareem Brown.
San Francisco 49ers
Inactives: QB Trent Dilfer, WR LeRon McCoy, DB Marcus Hudson, RB Michael Robinson, CB Shawntae Spencer, DT Damane Duckett, DT Atiyyah Ellison, WR Bryan Gilmore.
Inactives: QB Gibran Hamdan (3rd QB), LB Coy Wire, RB Shaud Williams, DB Jerametrius Butler, OL Christian Gaddis, T Patrick Estes, FB Ryan Neufeld, DE Bryan Copeland.
Fantasy take: RB Kenny Watson will start in the absence of Johnson, which makes him a nice sleeper candidate. RB DeDe Dorsey will also see more work, but he has far less value.
Inactives: DB Kenny Wright, DB Ricardo Colclough, RB Jerome Harrison, C Marvin Philip, G Isaac Sowells, WR Travis Wilson, DT Louis Leonard.
Fantasy take: RB T.J. Duckett is active and will be second on the depth chart behind RB Kevin Jones.
Fantasy take: QB Sage Rosenfels will start with Schaub inactive. RB Ron Dayne is active, but he will share carries with RB Darius Walker, who will start in Indianapolis.
Kansas City Chiefs
Inactives: RB Larry Johnson, FB Gilbert Harris, CB Tyron Brackenridge, DE Khreem Smith, T Adrian Jones, TE Michael Allan, WR Eddie Kennison, DT James Reed.
Fantasy take: RB Kolby Smith will start and see most of the carries with Johnson out. WR Samie Parker will start in the absence of Kennison.
New York Giants
Inactives: QB Jared Lorenzen (3rd QB), RB Danny Ware, CB Kevin Dockery, T Adam Koets, DT Manuel Wright, WR Sinorice Moss, WR David Tyree, TE Jerome Collins.
