Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. It sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision. We’ll find out Forte’s status by noon ET on Sunday, but he’ll be a risky fantasy option if active. If not, RBs Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire figure to form a committee. McGuire is off the injury report after hurting his ankle last week.
Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. It looks like Woods is ready to play his usual role against the Seahawks this weekend. He was sitting 14th among WRs in PPR points through Week 11.
Cowboys OLB Sean Lee is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Raiders. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with the hamstring injury that cost him 3 games before allowing him to return last week against the Giants. But Lee sat out Friday's practice with a back injury. Unfortunately, we won't know Lee's game status until about 7 p.m. ET Sunday, though we'll be looking for earlier indications. If you can secure Anthony Hitchens as IDP insurance, then waiting on Lee could prove worthwhile. The Cowboys, Raiders, Falcons and Bucs don't present many other options likely to be available on waivers, though. If it's a D flex spot, then you can check the DB rankings and DL rankings for potential replacements. Dallas also ruled out DT David Irving (concussion) for the 2nd straight week.
Titans S Johnathan Cyprien is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He missed practice all week with a lower-back injury. We'd try not to use him in IDP lineups even if he turns up active. We'll have to wait until about 3 p.m. ET Sunday to update his game status.
Patriots DE Trey Flowers is questionable once again for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He missed the past 2 games with a rib injury, but ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports that Flowers "made solid progress" this week and is nearing a return. Flowers said he hopes to play, according to the Providence Journal. LB Kyle Van Noy (calf) is questionable after missing last week. We'll confirm the status for each guy around 3 p.m. ET Sunday when the inactives come out -- and pass along any other updates that might arrive in the meantime.
Texans DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He missed practice all week, but HC Bill O'Brien said Friday that he expects Clowney to play, according to the Houston Chronicle. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.
Chargers CB Casey Hayward is questionable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs after a persistent calf injury "flared up" and kept him out of practice Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times. "He had more soreness in his calf, and it kind of worked its way down to his Achilles, so we held him out," HC Anthony Lynn said. "There's always a concern, but we're hopeful he can play." We'll check on Hayward's status when the inactives are announced at about 7 p.m. ET Saturday.
Seahawks OLB K.J. Wright (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) will be a game-time decision. Wagner didn't practice all week and will be a risky play even if he's active. The potential absence of both every-down LBs certainly helps the fantasy outlook for Rams RB Todd Gurley.
Washington has ruled ILB Zach Brown out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals with multiple lower-body injuries. The team will start Martrell Spaight and Zach Vigil at the 2 ILB spots. Each is a marginal IDP option. Arizona RB Kerwynn Williams hits the matchup off a pair of solid rushing outings and presents some fantasy upside, especially if the Cardinals defense can keep things close. Brown's loss doesn't significantly alter the outlook for the Washington team D.
The Bengals have ruled out OLB Vontaze Burfict for the 2nd straight week with a concussion. With Nick Vigil already on IR and Kevin Minter landing on IR this week, Cincinnati will be without all 3 starting LBs in Minnesota on Sunday. For IDP purposes, Jordan Evans and Vincent Rey are in play. The whole situation only enhances an already positive fantasy outlook for Vikings RB Latavius Murray. CB Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion) will also miss his 2nd straight game. S Shawn Williams (hamstring) is questionable. He's not an IDP factor even if active.
