NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Steelers RB James Conner is not expected to play against the Patriots tomorrow. Conner's officially questionable but has practiced just once (Friday) since suffering the initial injury. Conner's expected absence keeps RB Jaylen Samuels in starter territory. Stevan Ridley carried just 5 times last week at Oakland, with Conner out -- and shouldn't be on the fantasy radar.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) has been downgraded to out for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Dealing with a stress fracture in his back, Wentz seems unlikely to play again this year. QB Nick Foles gets his 3rd start of the season in Los Angeles. He struggled to a 117-0-1 passing line against the Falcons in the opener and then went for 334-1-0 vs. the Bucs in Week 2 -- a line that's less impressive than it might have seemed at the time considering what the Bucs defense has been this season. Foles is just a low-end QB2 for Week 15.
Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Bennett played through questionable tags each of the past 2 weeks and put in a full Friday practice this week. Expect Bennett to play Sunday night, albeit in a poor matchup for sack upside.
Seahawks DT Jarran Reed (oblique) and S Bradley McDougald (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Reed returned to a full practice Friday, though, after missing Thursday's workout. McDougald put in limited workouts the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday. We'll check both early-afternoon Sunday, but we expect both to play. If you plan to wait for McDougald, make sure you have insurance available from the Seahawks, 49ers, Patriots, Steelers, Eagles, Rams, Saints or Panthers. LB K.J. Wright (knee) remains out, despite putting in limited practices the past 2 days.
Dolphins S T.J. McDonald (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at the Vikings after being limited in practice all week. McDonald didn't miss a single snap of last week's win over the Patriots, though. We'd bet on him being active this week as well but will check on his status Sunday morning.
Washington DL Matt Ioannidis is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He basically missed the past 2 games, playing just 3 snaps against the Giants in Week 14. Unlike last week, though, Ioannidis actually returned to limited practices this week. We'll check his status this weekend. There's upside to the Jaguars matchup.
Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Geathers has for weeks been following odd practice schedules, often sitting out Wednesday and Friday workouts. Geathers put in just a limited practice Thursday this week, though. That marks the 1st time since Week 6 (which he missed) that Geathers finished the week without any full practices. He even put in 1 full practice in Week 7 before missing that game as well. We'll check Geathers' status Sunday morning.
Cowboys LB Sean Lee is officially questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. Mike Fisher of CBS reports that the team plans to play Lee in a limited role, with Leighton Vander Esch continuing to start on the weak side and Jaylon Smith continuing to play full time in the middle. Lee's return adds a bit of risk to LVE, but we'd keep him in IDP lineups in most cases. The rookie has proved he can deliver numbers even on less than full playing time.
Packers DT Kenny Clark is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears with an elbow injury that kept him out of practice all week. HC Joe Philbin indicated Friday that Clark doesn't necessarily need to practice to play: "He's played a lot of football ... so he has a good handle on what his job responsibility is and the scheme, etc." We'll check Clark's status Sunday morning. If he's active, go ahead and use him as you would normally for IDP lineups. Clark returned to last week's game (a lopsided win) after sustaining the injury.
Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday, his 1st workouts since suffering the injury in Week 12. We'll check Jefferson's status Sunday morning, ahead of the upside matchup.
