Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bills. He’s been playing through this shoulder injury for a few weeks and shouldn’t be limited today.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Week 18 vs. the Bills after limited practice all week. Fellow WR DeVante Parker (concussion) logged full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report. It seems as though we'll see Parker on the field on Sunday for the first time since Week 14 vs. the Cardinals. That said, Meyers is the player of the two who carries the most fantasy value. He's played through this shoulder injury for a few weeks now and we feel pretty confident that he'll suit up. The Bills' defense ranks as the 11th-best matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season, and Meyers carries a team-leading 27% target share over the last 2 weeks. Consider Meyers a solid WR2 in Week 18.

The Athletic's Vic Tafur believes there's a "good chance [Raiders RB Zamir] White will get his first serious action of the season" vs. the Chiefs on Saturday. RB Josh Jacobs is listed as questionable with hip and oblique injuries and missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices due to a personal issue. The Raiders have nothing to play for in the finale, so it'd make sense for them to get a look at White -- especially with Jacobs set to hit free agency in March. White is only worth considering in Saturday DFS contests, but Jacobs' floor and ceiling is lower in Week 18 than it's been all season.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity again on Thursday. It's also worth noting that WR DeVante Parker (concussion) has now practiced limited on back-to-back days. This is certainly encouraging for Parker as he's been sidelined since Week 14. Friday's injury report will give us official designations for the pair of pass-catchers ahead of Week 18 vs. the Bills. Check back tomorrow for further analysis.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. This same injury has plagued Meyers for a few weeks now. He's yet to miss a game because of it, so we feel pretty good about Meyers' availability for Week 18 vs. the Bills. We'll keep track of this in case anything changes.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers aggravated his shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He told reporters afterward that he's "fine" and expects to be ready for next weekend's finale vs. the Bills. We'll track his status throughout the coming week.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught 6 balls for 48 yards and a TD on 9 targets in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He came down hard on his TD catch, though, and told reporters after the game that he aggravated the shoulder injury initially suffered on Thanksgiving night at Minnesota. We'll see about Meyers' outlook for Week 18. The fact that New England clinched a playoff berth with this one could affect his availability.

Eagles QB Gardner Minshew completed 18 of 32 pass attempts for 276 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece vs. the Saints. Fantasy managers hoping to stream Minshew in the absence of QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) on Sunday are assuredly disappointed by the end result. The Saints dominated time of possession early, holding Minshew and company to 7:10 seconds of offense in the 1st half. The Eagles never really found their groove until late in the game and only converted 3 of 12 3rd downs in Week 17. It remains to be seen if Hurts will work his way back into the lineup for Week 18 vs. the Giants next Sunday.

The Raiders might not have EDGE Chandler Jones or LB Denzel Perryman in the lineup any more this season. Jones left Saturday night's loss to the Steelers with an elbow injury that found him carted from the sideline to the locker room. LB Denzel Perryman dislocated his left shoulder in the game. HC Josh McDaniels told reporters Monday that each player might miss the rest of the season, according to The Athletic's Tashan Reed. The Raiders are still not yet officially eliminated from the playoffs, but that seems likely to happen in Week 17. Barring some shift in the diagnosis for either player, we'd bet surprised to see either back on the field this season.

Eagles QB Gardner Minshew racked up 355 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday's loss at Dallas. Both of his TDs went to WR DeVonta Smith, who led the team with 12 targets, 8 catches and 113 yards. WR A.J. Brown added 6-103 receiving on 8 targets. RB Kenneth Gainwell (4-41) and TE Dallas Goedert (3-67) were the other Eagles with multiple catches. Minshew will be worth a look for Week 17 fantasy football lineups in a neutral scoring matchup with the Saints, if QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) remains out.

Raiders RB Zamir White (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against Pittsburgh. The rookie hasn’t handled more than 3 carries in a game this season. Josh Jacobs will be busy once again.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. We’re not worried about the shoulder, but New England’s struggling passing game leaves Meyers as a weak WR3 play. WR Tyquan Thornton (knee) is also active.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today. Meyers was limited in practice all week, but we never sensed much concern about his availability for this one. He's just a low-end WR3 option in a struggling New England passing game.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Week 16 vs. the Bengals. WR DeVante Parker (concussion) has been ruled out. Meyers is in the WR3/flex conversation in a neutral matchup on Saturday. The Patriots don't throw the ball a ton, but Meyers is usually a decent bet on a weekly basis for a modest target total.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni announced on Thursday morning that QB Garnder Minshew will start Week 16's game vs. the Cowboys on Saturday. Jalen Hurts (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday or Wednesday and will now have some time to heal further. The Cowboys' defense ranks as the 3rd-toughest matchup for opposing QBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. We don't consider Minshew a ceiling play in fantasy lineups this week, but he could still be considered a streaming option/QB2 in superflex leagues.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice on Wednesday. Veteran WR DeVante Parker (concussion) did not participate again for the 2nd consecutive day. It seems that Meyers is far likelier to play than Parker at this point. Tomorrow will tell us more about Meyers' availability for Week 16's matchup vs. the Bengals. Check back later.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) logged limited participation in practice on Tuesday. Teammate DeVante Parker (concussion) did not practice at all. Week 16's game vs. the Bengals falling on a Saturday makes this situation a bit tougher. As such, we'll keep tabs on the Pats' injury report today regarding the health of this pass-catching duo.

2:36pm EST 12/18/22

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, but we’re expecting him to play his usual role in this plus matchup. Meyers is in the WR3 mix.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) is expected to play vs. the Raiders today. Meyers got in just 2 limited practices this week. But, considering it was a concussion and he's plenty familiar with the offense, we're expecting him to be ready for a full role in today's plus matchup.

The Patriots expect to have WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders, according to The Boston Herald's Andrew Callahan. If that's the case, Meyers should be a full-go in an excellent matchup. Vegas ranks 26th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs and 31st vs. slot receivers. Meyers has played 60% of his snaps in the slot this season.
