The Chiefs and RB Damien Williams have agreed to a 2-year extension worth up to $8.1 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's now signed with Kansas City through the 2020 campaign. Williams has stepped up for 263 yards and 3 scores over the past 2 weeks, averaging 6.6 yards per carry and 8.5 yards per catch. He should remain a big part of the offense the rest of this season, even with the return of RB Spencer Ware. We'll see what the Chiefs add to the backfield this offseason.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's been banged up for most of the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Chicago hold him out of this weekend's regular season finale against the Vikings. Check back tomorrow for another update on A-Rob's status.
Bears S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers. That takes a boom/bust option out of IDP lineups for the week. It also takes Pro Football Focus' top-graded safety out of the Chicago defense. We'll see about the impact, given that this will be the 1st time Jackson hasn't started since he entered the league in 2017. But it has to ding the Bears' pass D at least a bit.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson announced on Monday that QB Nick Foles will start this weekend's game against the Texans. Pederson also said that QB Carson Wentz (back) will not go on IR yet. So Philly evidently believes he could return for Week 17 -- or potentially the playoffs. Foles was OK in Sunday night's upset win over the Rams, completing 24 of 31 passes (77.4%) for 270 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. He'll be just a lower-end QB2 vs. Houston.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (hip) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, so the hip shouldn’t be an issue. Robinson packs plenty of upside vs. a Green Bay defense ranked 31st in Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to WRs.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was a full-go on Friday. So he should be ready for Sunday.
49ers WR Marquise Goodwin returned to the team on Monday and is expected to play against the Broncos this weekend, according to insider Matt Maiocco. Goodwin missed the past 2 games to deal with a family matter. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR4 for Week 14.
Bears DE Akiem Hicks (Achilles’ tendon) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He began the week not practicing but returned to the field Friday and should be in IDP lineups for this upside matchup.
Bears DL Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game at the Giants with an Achilles' injury. Hicks returned to a full practice Friday, though, after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He looks likely to play, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.
49ers WRs Marquise Goodwin (personal) and Pierre Garcon (knee) are out for this weekend’s game in Seattle.Dante Pettis, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James will serve as San Francisco’s top 3 WRs.Pettis is the only fantasy consideration — and he’s just a WR4 flier.
Bears DE Akiem Hicks missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon issue. Here's what HC Matt Nagy told the Chicago Sun-Times on Thursday: "His is precautionary. It's just one of those things. We just felt like with where he's at, it would be good to give him a day and help him out there." DC Vic Fangio added: “He’s got a way to rally about himself and can kind of ignore whatever bumps and bruises he has going. He’s a tough guy.” It sounds like the Bears expect him to play. We'll check Hicks' Friday participation and game status. If he's OK for Sunday, the matchup with the Giants presents a high IDP ceiling.
Packers TE Jimmy Graham suffered a broken thumb in Thursday night's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is still trying to determine how much time Graham will miss, but this is obviously a significant injury for a guy who makes his living catching passes. We'd try to hang on to Graham in fantasy for now, but he's droppable if you're desperate for a roster spot. Lance Kendricks will step in as Green Bay's lead pass-catching TE for however long Graham is out but isn't a great fantasy option.
The Bucs have signed K Cairo Santos to replace K Chandler Catanzaro. Santos filled in for Greg Zuerlein in Los Angeles earlier this season, connecting on 5 of 6 FGs and 5 of 6 XPs. He'll be a viable fantasy option in the high-scoring Tampa offense. Catanzaro averaged 1.7 FG attempts and 3 XP attempts per game.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Lions. A-Rob is sitting just 49th among WRs in PPR points per game. He’ll benefit from the expected absence of CB Darius Slay but still isn’t more than a WR3.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle, groin) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks the 1st full practice since Week 6 for Mack, who missed the past 2 games. The star pass-rusher appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Lions, which would only help make fantasy's top defense a stronger play against an up-and-down Detroit offense.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play against the Lions this weekend after missing the previous 2 games. A-Rob is sitting 49th among WRs in PPR points per game and figures to see a lot of CB Darius Slay on Sunday. He's no more than a low-end WR3 for Week 10.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is out for today's game against the Bills. That takes out a prime IDP option, but it doesn't stop the Chicago D from being the week's strongest play vs. Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller will again serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs and are both lower-end WR3 options in fantasy lineups.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears OLB Khalil Mack is "unlikely to play" against the Bills today, "though Chicago wants to see him pregame before making any final determination." IDP owners can wait for his status at 11:30 a.m. ET before making lineup decisions, but expect to not have Mack available. The Bears' team D remains a strong option, however, against Nathan Peterman.
