Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was limited at practice again on Wednesday. Rookie Brian Robinson (quad) logged his 2nd straight full practice. Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers is just around the corner. Though the 49ers D ranks as the 2nd-toughest matchup in adjusted points allowed to RBs, Robinson would have the backfield mostly to himself if Gibson ultimately does not play. Neither RB is more than a flex consideration regardless of what happens though. We'll keep an eye on this and report back tomorrow.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday. The Commanders are set to take the field on Saturday against the 49ers in Week 16, so turnaround time is a bit shorter this week. Both Gibson and teammate Brian Robinson are staring down a brutal matchup against a 49ers defense that ranks as the 2nd-toughest for opposing RBs in 2022. Be cautious of both backs in lineups. Stay tuned for updated information.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson entered Sunday questionable with an ankle sprain but delivered big numbers after the game started. He rushed 19 times for 172 yards and a TD in the loss to the Raiders. He added 2 catches on 3 targets but lost 4 yards there amid a terrible passing day for New England. RB Pierre Strong Jr. Led the team with 3 receptions (for 12 yards) and carried 4 times for 25. RB Kevin Harris added 5-19 rushing. RB Damien Harris could be ready to re-enter the mix for a Week 16 date with the Bengals. He put in limited practices throughout Week 15 and was initially questionable before being ruled out for the Raiders game.

Cardinals CB Marco Wilson (neck) and CB Antonio Hamilton (back, illness) are inactive for today's game against the Broncos. With CB Byron Murphy Jr. already out, the team enters down its top 3 corners.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He got in just a limited practice on Friday after hurting his ankle on Monday night. It’s unclear exactly how big a role Stevenson is ready for today, leaving him as a risk/reward RB2. With RB Damien Harris (thigh) out, rookies Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong join Stevenson in the backfield.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) remains questionable for today's 4:05 pm ET kickoff vs. the Raiders. We won't get New England's inactives until 2:30. The Boston Herald's Andrew Callahan "fully expects" Stevenson to play "and probably be featured." Callahan adds: "How healthy is he? I don’t have a %. But he’s the Pats’ best offensive player in a near must-win game they want to slow down. I don’t think missing 2 practices is as big a deal this late in the season. Pats have been playing the long game to keep players healthy all year." ESPN's Mike Reiss is less sure of Stevenson's availability, noting that he was "very careful" on that injured left ankle in Friday's practice. But Reiss notes that Stevenson likely improved over the last 2 days and that the Patriots did not elevate RB J.J. Taylor from the practice squad. Ultimately, Stevenson is worth waiting on for plenty of fantasy teams. But you'd ideally have a viable late-game replacement in the range of a Latavius Murray/Antonio Gibson/Josh Palmer (flex spot).

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) has a "good chance" to play today against the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Pats will still have Stevenson test the ankle pregame, but they did not elevate J.J. Taylor from the practice squad. That indicates confidence in Stevenson's outlook, with rookies Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong Jr. the only other healthy RBs on the active roster. We did add Stevenson to the Week 15 fantasy football rankings and will be watching for confirmation of his status.

The Patriots did not elevate a RB from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. That suggests that RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) has a real chance to play. If not, New England will be down to just rookie RBs Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong. We won't get the Patriots' inactives until around 2:30 pm ET tomorrow, but we'll look for a Stevenson update in the morning.

Vikings WR K.J. Osborn tied WR Justin Jefferson for the team target lead (16) in Saturday's come-from-behind OT win over the Colts. Osborn caught 10 balls for a team-high 157 yards and scored. Jefferson returned from an injury check (chest) to catch 12 passes for 123 yards and a TD. WR Adam Thielen managed just 3 receptions on 4 targets for 41 yards and a TD. TE T.J. Hockenson added 3-33 receiving on 9 looks.

Patriots RBs Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) and Damien Harris (thigh) are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. Stevenson got in just a limited practice on Friday after hurting that ankle on Monday night. Harris was limited all week. We’ll look for further updates on this backfield ahead of Sunday’s 4:05 pm ET kickoff.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. RB Damien Harris (thigh) was limited. We'll keep a close eye on this backfield over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong are the healthy RBs on the active roster. RB J.J. Taylor is on the practice squad.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry snagged all 3 of his targets for 70 yards in Week 14. While his volume proved disappointing — especially with DeVante Parker exiting early with a concussion — the output turned out just fine in a plus matchup with Arizona. Next up for Henry is a neutral matchup with the Raiders.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson suffered an apparent left ankle injury in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals. He was able to get off the field under his own power. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Stevenson is officially questionable to return with an ankle injury.

Update: Stevenson returned midway through the 2nd quarter.

Update: Stevenson was ruled out at halftime.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster drew a team-high 11 targets in Sunday's win over the Broncos, catching 9 of them for 74 yards and a TD. Those were his 2nd-largest totals of the year in both targets and receptions. Smith-Schuster carried this upside into the week after reclaiming the route lead among K.C. receivers last week. TE Travis Kelce tied for 2nd on the team with 9 targets, catching 4 for 71 yards.

Browns LB Sione Takitaki suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Texans. Cleveland on Wednesday placed him on IR and signed veteran LB Reggie Ragland. Tony Fields and Deion Jones worked 3rd and 4th among Cleveland LBs at Houston, trailing Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Takitaki. JOK looks like the only 1 worth considering for IDP lineups right now.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, so it’s fair to assume that he’ll be operating at less than 100% today.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is expected to play vs. the Giants today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gibson got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday this week, so it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100%.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We’ll get Washington’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but it’s safe to assume that Gibson will be at less than 100% if he plays vs. New York.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) sat out practice on Thursday. Gibson was limited on Wednesday, so this is a step back for the 3rd-year man. We'll see if he's able to suit up on Friday.

With RB Travis Etienne out for most of the game, JaMycal Hasty took over the lead role. He predictably struggled on the ground, gaining just 28 yards on 12 carries against a tough Ravens run D. Hasty caught all 5 of his targets for 67 yards, though, including a 28-yard score. Snoop Cooper operated as the 2nd RB -- 3 carries, 11 yards, 0 targets -- with newly acquired RB Darrell Henderson inactive. We'll see about Etienne's outlook for Week 13 (and beyond), as well as Henderson's role going forward.
