Patriots TE Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to play vs. the Dolphins, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Henry was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. Miami ranks 29th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs, and New England will be without TE Jonnu Smith (concussion). But the knee issue adds enough risk to keep Henry out of TE1 consideration.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Dolphins, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Stevenson has been playing through this injury for a few weeks now. The bigger concern for his Week 17 fantasy outlook is the return of RB Damien Harris. See where Stevenson sits in the Week 17 RB Rankings.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot, knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Browns. Rookie RB Brian Robinson is set to step up and assume another big workload. Robinson is averaging 18.3 carries over his last 4 games. Moreover, the Browns rank 26th in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over the last 5 weeks in addition to being the 3rd-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs on the season. Fire up Robinson with confidence as a high-end RB2 candidate.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is officially questionable for Week 17 vs. the Dolphins. Teammate RB Damien Harris (NIR-personal) practiced fully on Friday and carries no injury tag for the contest on Sunday. It's good news that the Patriots will have Harris back in case Stevenson cannot suit up. That said, Stevenson has been playing through this injury since Week 14, and it has yet to cost him time. Stevenson remains a solid fantasy play if he receives the green light to play, although Harris’ return caps the ceiling a bit. Harris is nothing more than a speculative flex consideration in a neutral matchup vs. the Dolphins.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 17 vs. the Dolphins after logging limited practice all week. The veteran has been quiet over the last 2 weeks, only tallying 2 receptions on 4 targets. It's probably wise to look for TE help elsewhere for your fantasy lineup. TE Jonnu Smith (concussion) has been ruled out.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. That obviously doesn't hurt RB Brian Robinson's Week 17 fantasy profile, but it's worth noting that RB Jonathan Williams stepped into the passing-down role with Gibson banged up late in last week's loss to the 49ers. Robinson still doesn't project for big passing-game usage this weekend -- but he's a strong fantasy play based on his rushing upside against a bad Cleveland run defense.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (knee) once again participated in a limited capacity at Thursday's practice. Pop back in tomorrow for a more concrete outlook for his status ahead of Week 17 vs. the Dolphins.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot/knee) did not practice, and RB Brian Robinson (quad) logged full participation on Thursday. It seems fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Gibson for the fantasy championship round. We'll check in again tomorrow in case something changes. Should Robinson see the backfield to himself, he is best considered a high-end RB2 candidate vs. the Browns in Week 17.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) was a limited participant in practice on Thursday. After logging limited participation yesterday, Teammate Damien Harris received a NIR/rest day on Thursday. Tomorrow's practice report will shed more light on the availability of the Pats backs for Week 17 vs. the Dolphins.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (knee) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. It's too early to tell if his availability for Week 17 vs. the Dolphins is in jeopardy. We'll keep tabs on the TE this week. Check back tomorrow for updates.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. Teammate Damien Harris (thigh) was also limited at Wednesday's practice. Stevenson was able to suit up and play in Week 16 against the Bengals. On the other hand, Harris has not played since Week 12 vs. the Vikings. Both RBs logged limited participation all of last week. We'll be sure to keep an eye on their activity ahead of Week 17 vs. the Dolphins.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots TE Hunter Henry "has a chance" to play vs. the Dolphins this weekend. He was knocked out of the Week 16 loss to the Bengals with a knee injury and is considered "day-to-day," per Rapoport. We'll track Henry's status throughout the week.

Patriots WR Kendrick Bourne caught 6 of 9 targets for 100 yards and a TD in Saturday's loss to the Bengals. He led the team in all 3 categories (tying Jakobi Meyers in receptions) and added a 29-yard carry. Bourne did all that despite trailing Meyers and rookie WR Tyquan Thornton in playing time and routes, according to Pro Football Focus. Meyers posted a 6-83-1 receiving line on 7 targets, though he inflated that with a 48-yard TD on a ball that was intended for WR Scotty Washington but bounced to Meyers off Washington's hands. Meyers did lead the team in pass routes, though, which makes him easier to like for a Week 17 clash with the Dolphins. Thornton finished with just 1 catch for 8 yards among 3 targets. QB Mac Jones threw for 240 yards and 2 TDs in the game.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson totaled just 33 yards on 18 opportunities in Saturday's loss to the Bengals. He carried 13 times for just 30 yards, adding 2 catches for 3 yards on 5 targets. Stevenson ceded just 1 RB carry (to Kevin Harris) and 2 targets (to Pierre Strong), with Damien Harris out once again. Week 17 holds a rematch with the Dolphins, who allowed just 78 rushing yards to the Patriots back in Week 1. We'll see whether it also holds a return for Damien Harris.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry suffered a knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Henry has been ruled out.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He exploded for a 19-172-1 rushing line while playing through this ankle issue last week and will get a "full load" today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Damien Harris (thigh) is inactive, leaving rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris behind Stevenson in the backfield.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is "likely" to play vs. the Bengals today, while RB Damien Harris (thigh) is "more of a game-time decision." Both guys are listed as questionable after being limited in practice all week. We're not too worried about Stevenson considering he ripped off 172 rushing yards playing through this injury last week. We'll find out whether Harris is playing around 11:30 am ET, but he'd be a RB3 or flex at best.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) logs full practice on Thursday and doesn't carry an injury tag ahead of Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers. The 49ers' defense is a tough front to crack. Gibson is nothing more than an RB3/flex option this week. The same goes for teammate Brian Robinson.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) logged limited participation in practice all week and is officially listed as questionable for Week 16's game vs. the Bengals. The same goes for RB Damien Harris (thigh) this week. It's good to see both backs at least practiced somewhat this week. Fantasy managers should still keep a close eye on the final word for these guys ahead of kickoff on Saturday. Rookies Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris are names to keep an eye out for on the waiver wire just in case, but let's not get too ahead of ourselves just yet. Should Stevenson suit up, we consider him a top-10 play at the position.

Patriots RBs Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) and Damien Harris (thigh) both recorded their 2nd-straight limited practices on Thursday. It is still up in the air regarding which players will shoulder the rushing workload for the Pats on Saturday vs. the Bengals. We'll keep an eye out tomorrow regarding the health of this duo ahead of Week 16 action. If one or both cannot go, check your waiver wire for Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris.
