Dolphins LB Raekwon McMillan left Sunday's loss to the Giants early with a hamstring and did not return. He's not enough of a factor to be worth the risk for Week 16, unless you play in an especially deep league.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Philly has just 3 WRs available for tomorrow: Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't expect him to play. That'd leave Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and practice squad call-up Robert Davis as Philly's top 3 WRs. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. His absence leaves more snaps and targets available for young WRs J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Giants. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be in your fantasy plans. Agholor's absence would be good news for TE Dallas Goedert.

The Patriots have re-signed K Nick Folk. He missed last week's game after undergoing an appendectomy but is ready to kick again. Folk isn't a great fantasy option in a struggling New England offense.

Panthers QB Cam Newton has decided to have surgery on his Lisfranc injury, according to NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon. Newton is expected to be sidelined 8 to 10 weeks, which would put him back on the field in late January or early February. Due $18.6 million in 2020 -- on top of a $2 million option bonus -- Newton's future in Carolina is completely up in the air.

Ravens EDGE Matt Judon (ankle) is active for today's game against the 49ers. He's fine to use as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Ravens OLB Matt Judon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He put in a full practice Friday, so we'd bet on him playing. But we'll update Judon's status Sunday morning.

Patriots K Nick Folk is out for Sunday night's game against the Texans after undergoing an appendectomy. New England has signed Kai Forbath to kick vs. Houston. He's a decent option if you need to replace Folk in your fantasy lineup.

Update: Folk has been released

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. He didn’t practice all week, though, so he’ll be at far less than 100% if he suits up. Avoid Agholor in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

The Chargers on Thursday designated S Adrian Phillips to return from IR. Phillips suffered a forearm fracture in Week 2 but is nearing a return to action. The team still has 3 weeks to decide whether to put him on the active roster. Don't expect Phillips back for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. We'll see about Week 13, though, after the bye.

The Panthers announced Tuesday that they will place QB Cam Newton on IR for his foot injury. That ends Newton's season and secures Kyle Allen's starting gig for the remainder of 2019. Newton's recovery will be interesting to watch through the offseason. He has just 1 more year on his contract. According to Spotrac, that season carries a $21.1 million cap hit whereas cutting Newton would leave just $2 million in dead cap space. Newton will turn 31 in May, 2 months after the new league year begins. Allen will be an exclusive-rights free agent in the spring, meaning Carolina still controls his rights for at least 2020.

Patriots RB James White (toe) is active for tonight’s game against the Ravens. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but the toe injury is reportedly very minor. White is safe to get into fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is expected to be out "several weeks and potentially more" after visiting noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Surgery was not recommended, but Newton needs more rest to let his Lisfranc injury heal. Rapoport notes that a move to injured reserve hasn't been ruled out. Newton seems like a long shot to re-emerge as a bankable fantasy asset this season and can be dropped outside of 2-QB leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the toe injury that landed Patriots RB James White on this week's injury report is "very minor." Rapoport doesn't say anything about White's availability for tonight's game against the Ravens, but the report suggests that he'll be able to play. We'll continue to look for updates on his status this morning.

The Patriots have activated WR N'Keal Harry from IR. He's eligible to play Sunday night against the Ravens but isn't likely to claim a significant offensive role anytime soon. New England has Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu in place as the top 3 wideouts. Harry's first step will be fighting fellow rookie Jakobi Meyers for the 4th WR role.

Patriots RB James White (toe) was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Ravens. We don't have any other details right now. The late kickoff could make this a tricky situation for fantasy owners, but hopefully we get an update on White on Sunday morning. His absence would likely mean an expanded pass-catching role for RB Rex Burkhead.

Panthers QB Cam Newton is visiting foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to get another opinion on his Lisfranc injury, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Newton's foot is "not getting better" and that "playing football is a long way off." We'll continue to keep an eye on this, but Newton certainly isn't a must-hold in 1-QB fantasy leagues.

The Patriots have signed K Nick Folk to replace K Mike Nugent. Folk has been out of the NFL since 2017 but kicked for the AAF's Arizona Hotshots earlier this year. He sports a career 80.3% FG conversion rate across 11 NFL seasons. Folk could come into fantasy value kicking for a strong Patriots offense.
