Shark Bites

Raiders S Erik Harris is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He popped up on Thursday's injury report with a hamstring injury that continued to limit him Friday. We'll see about Harris when the inactives come out Sunday afternoon.

Cardinals ILB Joe Walker (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Walker put in limited practices all week and seems in line to play. He's merely a lower-level IDP option.

The Browns have ruled DE Olivier Vernon (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Vernon already missed multiple games with the injury. He then played minimal snaps in his return to the lineup. His absence should mean more playing time for Bryan Cox Jr. Chad Thomas is the only Cleveland DE worth a lineup look for fantasy, though.

Washington CB Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) and FS Montae Nicholson (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Dunbar missed practice all week with his injury and looks like a poor bet for IDP use even if he plays. Nicholson sustained his injury Friday. We'll see about both players Sunday morning. CB Fabian Moreau (hamstring) is also questionable after limited practices all week. That means 2 of Washington's current top 3 at the position will be at least banged up for the game -- if not out. CB Josh Norman -- recently booted from the starting lineup -- is also questionable with an illness.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) and CB Ronald Darby (hip flexor) are questionable for Sunday's game at Washington. Barnett missed practice all week after sitting out Monday night's win over the Giants. He seems like a poor bet even if he turns up active for the game. Darby sustained his injury in Friday's practice. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro left last Sunday's win over the Raiders early with a concussion. He managed full practices Thursday and Friday, though, following a limited Wednesday workout. That seems to point to Vaccaro being ready for Sunday's game against the Texans. We'll keep an eye out for final clearance.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark is still dealing with the stomach ailment that rendered him questionable for last week's win at New England. Clark missed practice Wednesday and Thursday of this week but returned or a full Friday workout. The Kansas City Star reports that Clark will have 1 more appointment with a specialist, which likely will determine whether he plays against the Broncos. "We're heading in the right direction there," HC Andy Reid said Friday. "We'll just see how it all works out, but he looked like he moved around pretty good today." Clark played through the illness last week and delivered a sack among 3 total pressures. If he's active, he'll be worth playing in an upside matchup with Denver.

The Lions have ruled MLB Jarrad Davis (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. That should mean more playing time for rookie LB Jahlani Tavai. DT A'Shawn Robinson (shoulder) has also been ruled out. Detroit has also deemed DT John Atkins (illness) questionable. That doesn't matter for IDP purposes, but missing Atkins in addition to Robinson would leave the team without 2 of its top 4 DTs from last week's lineup. LB Christian Jones (shoulder) is also questionable. That's another unimportant designation for IDP, but Jones' absence would similarly chip away at Detroit's regular starting lineup.

Panthers EDGE Mario Addison (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned for to limited participation Friday. We'll check Addison's status Sunday morning.

The Seahawks have ruled DE Jadeveon Clowney out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Clowney has been dealing with a core muscle injury for several weeks. He also battled illness this week, missing practice Wednesday and Thursday. Clowney returned for limited participation Friday, though, and initially drew a "questionable" tag for the Carolina game. But the team quickly downgraded him. Clowney's absence is a significant blow to a D-line that also has DE Ezekiel Ansah questionable (neck). Elsewhere on the defense, LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) will miss his 2nd straight game, and CB Shaq Griffin (hamstring) is questionable.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Tyler Higbee leads all TEs in targets (19), catches (14) and yards (223) over the last 2 weeks and is a locked-in TE1 for Week 15.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (knee) practiced all week and will return for Sunday’s game against the Rams. The rookie has averaged just 3.5 carries and 1.5 targets over his last 8 games.

The Dolphins and WR DeVante Parker are close to finalizing a 4-year, $40 million extension with "lots of guaranteed money," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's a well-deserved payday for Parker, who's enjoyed the rare 5th-year breakout. He's sitting 22nd among WRs in PPR points through 14 weeks and ranks 23rd among 83 qualifying WRs in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades. Parker turns just 27 in January.

Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) graduated to a full practice on Friday. That seemingly puts him on track to be cleared for Monday night's game against the Colts. We'll get another update on Cook's status tomorrow.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. WR Scott Miller (hamstring) practiced all week and is set to return. It’s unclear how WR snaps will be split between Miller, Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson behind #1 Chris Godwin. Perriman is the best fantasy bet of the trio, but consider him just a WR4 flier.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is listed as questionable but is fully expected to play against the Lions this weekend. Winston didn’t throw on Wednesday, threw with a tennis ball on Thursday but graduated to a football on Friday. “He threw fine,” HC Bruce Arians said after Friday’s workout. “He'll be ready to go.” Winston carries elevated risk in Week 15 fantasy lineups but still boasts big upside.

Lions RB Bo Scarbrough (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs. He was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice at all on Thursday or Friday, so he seems to be in real danger of missing this one. Scarbrough’s absence would leave Detroit with RBs Ty Johnson and J.D McKissic.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Friday. He appears to have a shot to return for Monday night's game against the Saints. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (rib) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos. Interestingly, he didn't practice at all on Friday after putting in limited workouts on Wednesday and Thursday. That has us guessing that Williams won't play, but we'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (hand) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He seems safe to use as you normally would for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
