Texans S Lonnie Johnson (knee) is active for today's game against the Colts. A knee issue limited Johnson's participation Friday and landed him as questionable on the final injury report. But it sounds like he's ready for low-level IDP use if he was in your plans.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is active for today's game against Washington. He managed only a single limited practice Friday, though, and saw his snaps limited the last time he played through this foot issue 2 weeks ago. There's upside to Dunlap's matchup, but he's a risky IDP option. He's more worth a shot in sack-heavy scoring than in formats that lean toward tackle scoring.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones is out for today’s game against the Falcons. We’ll see if he can make it back from pinky surgery and a trip to the COVID list for Week 16. Leonard Fournette figures to operate as Tampa’s lead back today, although LeSean McCoy and potentially rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn will also be involved

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. He did, at least, progress to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since sustaining the injury in Week 12. But Dunlap missed last week's game and played just 41% of the snaps the week before while dealing with the issue. He's not a safe bet even if active in this game, though there will be upside to the matchup if he's active. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones has been placed on the COVID list. We'll see if he tested positive for the virus or was just a close contact. But between this and Tuesday's finger surgery, he seems like a long shot to play vs. Atlanta this weekend. That'll leave the backfield to Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy and Ke'Shawn Vaughn.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones will try to practice on Thursday or Friday, HC Bruce Arians said. Jones had pinky surgery on Tuesday, but it looks like there's a chance he's able to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. We'll continue to keep an eye on him.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones will have surgery on Tuesday to have a pin placed in his broken pinky finger, the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports. Stroud notes that this is similar to the injury Chris Godwin had earlier this season. Godwin ended up missing 1 game. Jones hasn't yet been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, but fantasy owners should at least make plans to be without him. Jones' absence would leave Tampa with RBs Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy and Ke'Shawn Vaughn. Despite being a healthy scratch last week, Fournette is the best candidate to take over as lead back if Jones sits.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans S Justin Reid will miss the rest of the season after suffering a hand injury in Sunday's loss to the Bears. A.J. Moore looks like the fill-in for Reid but doesn't make for a good Week 15 bet in IDP lineups.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones injured a pinky in Sunday's win over the Vikings. HC Bruce Arians said Monday that it might be fractured. It sounds like Jones is still undergoing tests, so we'll look for an update on the injury and whether it'll cost him time. We're guessing Jones' absence would put RB Leonard Fournette in the lead role -- although it's less clear after Fournette was a healthy scratch yesterday.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His absence leaves more snaps for Benson Mayowa, L.J. Collier and Rasheem Green.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Dunlap missed every practice for the 2nd straight week with his foot injury. He played just 41% of the snaps against the Giants last Sunday, in the same situation, and went without a QB hit for the 1st time since arriving via trade. Dunlap makes for a high-risk option this Sunday -- albeit in an upside matchup.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. The rookie was active but didn’t play a snap last week. He should be back in the lead role in Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is active for tonight’s game against the Broncos. He missed the final 2 practices of the week with a non-COVID illness but was reportedly feeling better on Saturday. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported this afternoon, though, that RB Le’Veon Bell is expected get a “much bigger workload” tonight.

Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is active for today's game against the Giants. He's a strong option for IDP lineups in a high-upside matchup.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell is expected get a "much bigger workload" against the Broncos tonight. It sounds like RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be limited after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with an illness. Exactly how limited he'll be is uncertain, but the rookie now looks like a risk/reward fantasy play. Bell is an upside RB3 or flex option.

The Chiefs are "hopeful" RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) can play against the Broncos tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie missed the final 2 practices of the week with a non-COVID illness but was reportedly feeling better on Saturday. The Chiefs will see how CEH feels when he gets to the stadium before making a final decision on his status. We probably won't know whether he's playing until inactives come out around 7 pm ET, so fantasy owners should try to roster a backup option from either this game, the 2 Monday nighters or Tuesday's Cowboys-Ravens game.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) missed the final 2 practices of the week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. Assuming this isn’t COVID, CEH should play vs. Denver. But it’s possible that the missed practice time limits the rookie’s role. Stay tuned to Shark Bites for updates on his status.

The NFL is reinstating Seahawks WR Josh Gordon, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Glazer adds that Gordon will be eligible to play in the final 2 games of the season, so it sounds like it's not an immediate reinstatement. The timing means that you can continue to ignore Gordon in redraft leagues. Perhaps he'll make an impact in the playoffs for Seattle.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is active for tonight’s game against the Bears. He’s a boom-or-bust fantasy play, especially at less than 100%.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Bears. He injured his Achilles on Thursday and then didn’t practice on Friday — so he seems to be on the doubtful side of questionable. Valdes-Scantling’s absence would make WR Allen Lazard a more intriguing Week 12 fantasy play.
