Cowboys RB Tony Pollard is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Titans after missing his 3rd straight practice Wednesday with a thigh issue. Even if he's active for the game, Dallas will be facing a Tennessee team benching a lot of starters in a contest that doesn't affect their playoff status. That could limit Pollard's exposure in what should be an easy win. Limited time for Pollard and a slew of missing starters on the Tennessee defense add lots more upside to RB Ezekiel Elliott than the initial matchup pointed to.

In another clear sign that the Titans are surrendering Thursday night's game to the Cowboys, the team announced Wednesday that basically the entire defense is out or doubtful. DT Jeffery Simmons, S Amani Hooker, EDGE Bud Dupree, LB Dylan Cole and LB Zach Cunningham are out. DL Denico Autry and CB Kristian Fulton are doubtful, which is really just a wishy-washy way of saying "out." LB Monty Rice, CB Roger McCready and S Andrew Adams like just about the only playable pieces for IDP leagues.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (thigh) did not practice on Tuesday. With Week 17's game vs, the Titans coming up on Thursday, it'll be crucial that Pollard logs some activity on Wednesday. Check back tomorrow for more updates. RB Ezekiel Elliott would see a potential boost if Pollard were to be absent, so this is one we'll surely be keeping an eye on.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (thigh) did not practice on Monday. The Cowboys held a walkthrough on Monday ahead of Week 17's Thursday night game vs. the Titans. As such, this is just an estimation of his participation. There's still plenty of time between now and Thursday's game. Check back tomorrow as we learn more information regarding Pollard's health.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins drew 10 targets in Sunday night's OT loss to the Bucs, falling just 1 short of WR Greg Dortch's team lead. But he caught only 1 of them for 4 yards. WR Marquise Brown tallied 3 catches for 57 yards among 6 targets. Third-string QB Trace McSorley averaged just 4.8 yards per attempt on his 45 passes. We'll see whether QB Colt McCoy makes it back for a Week 17 date with the Falcons.

Titans QB Malik Willis went 14-of-23 passing in Saturday's loss to the Texans, tallying just 99 yards (4.3 per attempt) with 0 TDs and 2 INTs. WR Robert Woods was the only Titan with more than 2 receptions, catching all 4 of his targets for 30 yards. Willis will start at least 1 more game Thursday night against the Cowboys.

Titans S Amani Hooker (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Texans.

11:32am EST 12/24/22

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. The rookie isn’t a recommended fantasy play with Malik Willis under center.

If it feels like Cowboys RB Tony Pollard has become a must-start, that's because he has. The 4th-year back trails only Josh Jacobs and Christian McCaffrey in PPR points at the position over the past 5 weeks. That span began with the Week 11 game in which Ezekiel Elliott returned from a 2-game knee injury. Pollard has garnered at least 14 opportunities (carries + targets) in every game since the Week 6 visit to Philadelphia. He sits high in our Week 16 fantasy football rankings for the rematch.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) practiced in full all week. The rookie carries an official injury designation of questionable for Week 16's game vs. the Texans. Hopefully, Burks will clear the concussion protocol and be able to play on Saturday. We'll know more ahead of kickoff regarding his availability.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) practiced fully for the 2nd day in a row on Wednesday. It seems the rookie is likely to play in Week 16's game vs. the Texans on Saturday. Burks has not played since sustaining a head injury in Week 13 vs. the Eagles. With rookie QB Malik Willis likely under center, Burks may not be particularly viable as a fantasy option this week. Additionally, the Texans rank as the 5th-most difficult matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed. Burks' potential return to play is better news for Titans fans than fantasy managers.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) was listed as a full participant at practice on Tuesday. The rookie is trending toward being able to play in Saturday's game vs. the Texans at this rate. It will still be worth monitoring his participation today, however. Fellow rookie TE Chigoziem Okonkwo has stepped up in Burks' absence as a fantasy contributor, so there could be some ripple effects here. We'll keep an eye out.

Titans TE Chig Okonkwo led the team in targets (5) in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, catching 4 for 54 yards. He tied RB Derrick Henry for the reception lead and ranked 2nd in yards. The rookie has caught 4+ balls and cracked 50 yards in 3 straight games. He has matched or beaten TE Austin Hooper in targets for 4 weeks in a row.

2:56pm EST 12/18/22

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (finger) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. He carries elevated risk playing through the dislocated finger he suffered last week.

The Titans have ruled S Amani Hooker (knee), DL Denico Autry (knee) and CB Kristian Fulton (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. It'll be the 4th straight missed game for Autry and 2nd for Fulton. Hooker played the past 3 games, leaving early from last week's loss to the Jaguars. S Andrew Adams should get his 3rd straight game of starter-level duty in Hooker's absence. Adams has actually played 78% of snaps or more in 7 of the past 8 games, some with Hooker in the lineup and others without. Check the Week 15 IDP rankings for Adams' adjusted position.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. That leaves Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as Tennessee's top 2 WRs once again -- and keeps TEs Chig Okonkwo and Austin Hooper in play for fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (finger) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so Boyd is seemingly on track to play. He carries elevated risk, though, after dislocating a finger last week.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He now looks like a long shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. That'll keep Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine atop the WR depth chart -- and keep TE Chig Okonkwo in play as a fantasy spot starter.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (finger) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said earlier this week that Boyd "could miss a week or 2" with his dislocated finger, but it looks like he at least has a chance to play vs. the Bucs this weekend. We'll get another update on Boyd tomorrow.

Titans WR Treylon Burks (concussion) remained sidelined on Wednesday. The rookie still has a lot of progress to make in order to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. We'll update his status again tomorrow.
