The Colts are signing WR Devin Funchess to a 1-year contract. It's a nice landing spot for a guy who might still have his best football ahead of him. Funchess broke out for a 63-840-8 line just a couple of years ago but fell out of favor in Carolina this past season. He turns just 25 in May, though -- extremely young for a guy entering his 5th NFL campaign. Funchess has a shot to finish 2nd on the 2019 Colts in targets and will be getting a QB upgrade in Andrew Luck. Funchess should also be plenty motivated on the 1-year deal.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is inactive for today's finale against the Saints. He's been phased out down the stretch and will be a free agent this offseason. D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel will continue to operate as Carolina's top 2 WRs.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and DB Quandre Diggs (back) are active for today's game against the Packers. They're OK for normal IDP usage.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and DB Quandre Diggs (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Both began the week sidelined before returning for limited workouts the final 2 days. Harrison played through a "questionable" tag for the issue last week despite putting in 1 fewer practice. We'd bet on him playing again but will confirm his status Sunday morning. Diggs is just a low-level IDP option. Play him at your own risk.

Lions CB Darius Slay (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. LB Devon Kennard (hip) is inactive. Neither is much of an IDP factor.

Lions LB Devon Kennard (hip) and CB Darius Slay (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Kennard put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Slay popped up on the injury report Thursday and was limited Thursday and Friday. We'll update their statuses Sunday afternoon. Neither is much of an IDP option.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is active for today’s game against the Bucs. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Funchess will play on a “limited basis.” So despite the plus matchup, consider him just a WR4.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is expected to return today from the back injury that cost him Week 12, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Funchess endured sluggish production over the past 4 games he played and isn't a terrific option, but he's on the radar at least vs. a terrible Bucs defense.

Update: Rapoport adds that Funchess will play on a "limited basis" today. "The team will work him back slowly." We'd try not to use Funchess in fantasy lineups, despite the plus matchup.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Ron Rivera said Friday that he’s “optimistic” about Funchess’ status. If active, he’ll be no better than a risky WR3. But Funchess’ return would make WR Curtis Samuel impossible to trust in fantasy lineups. WR D.J. Moore remains a WR2 with upside.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (quad) is out for Sunday’s game against the Colts. Keelan Cole will again serve as the #3 WR but isn’t a fantasy option.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That at least gives him a chance to play against the Bucs this weekend. We'll see what Funchess is able to do tomorrow.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for Sunday's game against the Bucs. Frankly, we like Carolina's offense better with D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel as the top 2 WRs.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah and DT Damon Harrison are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers as each deals with a shoulder injury. Both players put in limited practices all week. Ansah played through questionable tags the past 2 games. We'd bet on him being active again, but he'll need to grow his role before returning to real IDP consideration. Harrison's issue is new, but his participation in practice all week leaves us optimistic. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Detroit will definitely be without its other starting DT, A'Shawn Robinson, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive once again for today's game against the Seahawks. He still has not played since suffering the injury back in Week 1. MLB Jarrad Davis is active, however after entering the day questionable with a calf injury. He's good to go in a positive matchup for IDP lineups.

Lions LB Jarrad Davis (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Davis missed Wednesday's practice but then returned for limited work the other 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The forecast for today's Rams-Broncos game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and temperatures in the 20s. It sounds like much of the snow will come before kickoff, though, and winds will be just 5-10 mph. We're not altering our projections for this game.

Lions S Tavon Wilson (back) is out for today's game against the Packers. CB Nevin Lawson (illness), S Quandre Diggs (hand) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) are active. None of these 4 is a big IDP factor.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He clearly suffered a setback with his injured shoulder, which cost him the entire practice week. MLB Jarrad Davis (knee) is active after showing up questionable on Friday's injury report with a knee issue. He's an OK IDP option.

Lions CB Darius Slay is active for tonight's game against the Patriots, just a week after suffering a concussion at San Francisco. It's somewhat surprising after Slay reached the weekend without having cleared the league protocol, but Detroit's top cover man is available if you waited on him for your IDP lineup. DE Ezekiel Ansah is inactive for the 2nd straight week, however, because of a shoulder injury.

The Lions have deemed DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and CB Darius Slay (concussion) questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. It's hard to envision Slay playing after he missed practice all week. Ansah put in limited practices all last week but then missed the game. We'll see about his status Sunday evening, but don't count on Ansah for your IDP lineup.
