Seahawks RB Travis Homer sprained an ankle in Saturday's loss to the Chiefs, HC Pete Carroll said afterward. We'll see about the severity, but Homer is off the fantasy radar as long as RB Ken Walker is healthy.

Lions RBs combined for just 22 rushing yards on 12 carries in Saturday's loss at Carolina. RB D'Andre Swift rushed 4 times for 12 yards and caught just 1 of his 5 targets for 13 more. Jamaal Williams posted 7-11 rushing and caught both of his targets for 3 yards. The whole Detroit offense gets a positive matchup back home with Chicago in Week 17, but the RBs won't be exciting plays.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus announced today that the team is placing LB Jack Sanborn on IR for the left-ankle injury that knocked Himont of Sunday's loss to the Eagles. That will end the rookie's season. Joe Thomas stepped in for Sanborn in that game and figures to start over the final 3 weeks. LB Nicholas Morrow becomes the best bet for tackles at the position. You can find him in our Week 16 IDP waiver-wire article.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) will be designated to return from IR and practice this week. HC Matt Eberflus hinted last week that Herbert was on track to return for Week 16's meeting with the Bills. He averaged 9.3 carries and 54 rushing yards over his last 6 games alongside David Montgomery but totaled just 2 targets during that stretch. Herbert ranked 28th among RBs in non-PPR points across those 6 weeks; 31st in PPR. He's worth owning in most fantasy leagues -- but more as a Montgomery handcuff than Week 16 starter. Herbert's return is a slight ding to Montgomery's fantasy value.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore entered Sunday's game questionable with an ankle sprain but finished as the offense's lone bright spot. He caught 5 of 6 targets for 73 yards and Carolina's only TD in the loss to the Steelers. Moore should be a solid-to-good fantasy option against the Lions in Week 16 and Buccaneers in Week 17.

Bears LB Jack Sanborn injured his left ankle in today's loss to the Eagles and did not return. He was ruled out before the end of the game, which doesn't bode well for his Week 16 outlook. We'll watch for updates on Sanborn's status.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift led the team in rushing yards for Sunday's win over the Jets, tallying 52 on 8 attempts (6.5 per rush). He trailed RB Jamaal Williams by 5 carries (13-33) and watched another 6 go to Justin Jackson (for 16 yards). Swift garnered 9 targets, a season high and 2nd most on the team. He caught 5 for a mere 23 yards (4.6 per reception). Only WR Amon-Ra St. Brown drew more looks. He caught 7 of his 10 for 76 yards.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He was downgraded to limited participation on Friday after putting in full workouts the previous 2 days. It’s safe to assume Moore won’t be at 100% today, adding risk to his fantasy profile.

The Panthers expect WR D.J. Moore (ankle) to play against the Steelers today. Moore opened the week with a pair of full practices after hurting the ankle last Sunday, but he finished with a limited Friday. Between that and Carolina's desire to keep the passing volume low, there's risk to playing Moore today. That's reflected in our Week 15 fantasy football rankings.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Moore put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday and listed as questionable. It's fair to assume he won't be at 100% tomorrow. See where Moore sits in the Week 15 WR Rankings.

Bears S Jaquan Brisker and CB Kyler Gordon are both off the team's final injury report and set to return in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Each rookie has been out since suffering a concussion in the Week 11 loss at Atlanta. See where both sit in our Week 15 IDP rankings.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday. "It's not so much of a setback,” HC Steve Wilks said of the Friday downgrade. “It's really just trying to see whether or not he's gonna be able to sustain and be efficient with what we're asking him to do." Between the ankle and a run-heavy offense piloted by Sam Darnold, Moore is a shaky Week 15 fantasy play.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift is not listed on the Week 15 injury report. Swift has averaged 14.5 carries, 4.5 targets and 143.0 total yards in 2 games when he wasn't on the injury report this season. He mustered just 5.1 carries, 4.5 targets and 42.8 total yards per game when on the injury report. We're not necessarily saying that Swift is about to go for 140+ total yards vs. the Jets this weekend -- but he's a more comfortable fantasy play if he can remain off the injury report.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. So he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. But Moore looks like a shaky WR3 with Carolina going super run-heavy under QB Sam Darnold.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) is on track to come off IR when first eligible next week. "He’s getting ready to go,” HC Matt Eberflus said Monday. “He’s been hitting his max speeds. His jumps look good, and the power in his legs look great. So, we’re excited about that." Herbert averaged 11.3 carries over his last 4 games, so he could be useful in deeper non-PPR leagues down the stretch. He, of course, is also the David Montgomery handcuff once healthy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Panthers WR D.J. Moore is considered "day-to-day" with a knee sprain, rather than the previously reported ankle injury. "Nothing significant," a source told Schefter. It sounds like Moore has a chance to be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers -- although he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups after going catch-less in the win over Seattle.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore came away from Sunday's win over the Seahawks with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Moore will have an MRI today to determine the severity. Moore played all but 3 of Carolina's offensive snaps at Seattle, so we didn't notice the injury initially. We'll see about his status for a Week 15 home date with Pittsburgh, which has ranked among the league's best scoring matchups for WRs. Although Shi Smith and Laviska Shenault led Panthers WRs in production against the Seahawks, Terrace Marshall remained the only one close to Moore in playing time. They ran 25 and 29 pass routes, respectively, compared with 11 for Smith and 8 for Shenault, according to Pro Football Focus.

With RBs Kenneth Walker III and DeeJay Dallas inactive, RB Travis Homer led the Seahawks with 9 carries and 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Tony Jones Jr. claimed the only other RB carry for the team and trailed Homer 3-2 in targets, despite the early Sunday report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that Jones would start. We'll see whether Walker or Dallas can make it back for Thursday's clash with the 49ers, which won't be a great spot even for a healthy RB. Godwin Igwebuike didn't play an offensive snap against the Panthers.

Lions RBs produced little in Sunday's pass-driven victory over the Vikings. Jamaal Williams claimed 16 of 26 RB carries but managed only 37 yards. D'Andre Swift added just 39 total yards, carrying 6 times for 21 and catching 3 of 4 targets for 18. Justin Jackson claimed the group's only TD, scoring on the ground from 15 yards out. The group gets an even tougher matchup at the Jets in Week 15.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice but a full-go on Thursday and Friday. Swift probably still isn’t at 100%, but he should be ready for a significant role in this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings.
