Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. That’s good news for WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He arrived questionable and is likely well short of 100% after missing the entire week of practice with a nagging knee injury. He'll be risky but also carry upside as an IDP option.

11:31am EST 1/9/22

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. He’d likely be playing if this game meant anything to Green Bay and should be back for the playoffs. All of the Packers’ other regulars on offense are active, although it’s unclear how much guys like Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams will play.

The Buccaneers expect to get RB Leonard Fournette back for the start of the playoffs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fournette has been out since Dec. 19 with a hamstring injury but reportedly did some running with trainers during this practice week. Tampa also reportedly expects to have LB Lavonte David (foot) ready for the playoffs.

The Broncos fired HC Vic Fangio. He won just 7, 5 and 7 games across 3 seasons with Denver. No word yet on OC Pat Shurmur, but we imagine he'll also be gone. We'll see who GM George Paton tabs as his new HC.

Update: The Broncos have also fired OC Pat Shurmur, according to insider Mike Klis.

Rams RB Cam Akers is expected to have a "limited role" vs. the 49ers today in his 1st game since tearing his Achilles this summer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Akers will have "an increased role" in the playoffs. We'll see how Akers looks today and what that means for his postseason volume. But he's not a viable Week 18 fantasy option. RB Sony Michel remains a strong play.

Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson has been activated from the COVID list and is eligible to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday. We'll see if RB Kareem Hunt, who's questionable with his ankle injury, ends up playing.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams hurt a big toe on the final play of the 1st half of Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. He didn't record a touch in the 2nd half. We'll keep an eye on Williams -- and RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire -- this coming week. The Chiefs will host a Wild Card game unless the Titans lose to the Texans on Sunday.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hurt his right heel in warmups prior to Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. He ended up playing limited snaps and finishing with 1 catch for 2 yards. We'll look for updates on Hill's status and keep a close eye on his practice participation leading into next weekend's Wild Card game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that there's a "strong lean" toward the 49ers starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo in Sunday's game against the Rams. We'll certainly watch to confirm that, but fantasy managers who were hoping to start Trey Lance need to make alternate plans.

The Titans waived RB Jeremy McNichols. It’s a predictable move, as Tennessee is set to welcome Derrick Henry (foot) back for the postseason. D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard will fill out the depth chart behind Henry. A Titans win on Sunday locks up the #1 seed — and a 1st-round bye.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. Dallas. In his place, Gardner Minshew will make his 2nd start of the season.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken believes the Cowboys' starters are "unlikely to see [their] usual workload" vs. the Eagles tonight. Dallas has little to play for with the NFC East already clinched. QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR CeeDee Lamb, WR Amari Cooper and TE Dalton Schultz are all risky fantasy plays.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is expected to play vs. the Rams on Sunday, according to insider Matt Maiocco. It sounds like Maiocco is basing that off the fact that San Francisco did not elevate QB Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad, rather than information from a source. Still, fantasy owners should now be operating under the assumption that it'll be Garoppolo under center. He'd be a risky fantasy start playing through an injury to his throwing thumb.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's regular-season finale vs. Dallas. He should be back for the Wild Card Round. TE Richard Rodgers was elevated from the practice squad and looks like Philly's Week 18 starter. He's in play in the 2-game DFS slate.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard were not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Both guys should be back for the playoffs. Philly elevated RB Jason Huntley, who will join Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield. We're expecting Gainwell to lead in touches.

The Titans did not activate RB Derrick Henry (foot) from IR on Saturday, which means he won't play in Sunday's finale against the Texans. That locks in D'Onta Foreman as the lead back in a high-upside matchup. Henry appears on track to return for the playoffs. If Tennessee beats Houston, the Titans will get a 1st-round bye.

The Steelers on Saturday placed WR James Washington on the COVID list. Washington wasn't headed for a big role, with Diontae Johnson back on the active roster. His deactivation, though, locks in Ray-Ray McCloud as a top-3 WR for the upside matchup with Baltimore. Pittsburgh also activated lead CB Joe Haden and C Kendrick Green from the COVID list, making them available for the Ravens game.

The Colts on Saturday activated WR Parris Campbell from IR. He had been there since Oct. 19 after suffering a foot injury in the Week 6 win over Houston. HC Frank Reich reportedly said the coaching staff will decide whether to play Campbell in the regular-season finale against Jacksonville. We wouldn't bet on a big role if Campbell does get into that game. We'll see about his role for the playoffs (assuming the Colts get there).

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Buckner missed practice all week with a nagging knee issue and seems like a legitimate game-day decision.
