Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He put in 3 practices this week and passed his final test in pregame warmups. We’re expecting Conner to step back in as Pittsburgh’s lead back, with RB Jaylen Samuels in a change-of-pace role.

2:12pm EST 12/30/18

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. It’s a surprise after he put in a full week of practice. Ware’s absence makes Damien Williams a RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers exited in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Lions to be checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB DeShone Kizer is in for Green Bay.

Update: Rodgers has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the day. It's his 3rd documented concussion.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Falcons after arriving questionable. DE Carl Nassib is inactive, as expected. A shoulder injury rendered him doubtful.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (neck) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is officially inactive for today's game against the Giants. QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper are active, but don't bank on either guy playing much.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander is inactive for today's game against the Lions. It's no surprise after his groin injury kept him out of practice all week, but Alexander hit the day questionable.

Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. New England is down to Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett at WR.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is inactive for today's finale against the Saints. He's been phased out down the stretch and will be a free agent this offseason. D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel will continue to operate as Carolina's top 2 WRs.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso (ankle, hamstring) is active for today's game against the Bills. He's expected to play after sitting out a week ago despite being active then. Alonso will be risky but also in play for IDP usage. CB Xavien Howard (knee) and S T.J. McDonald (ankle) are inactive.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will handle backfield duties.

QB Drew Brees, RB Alvin Kamara and WR Ted Ginn are all healthy scratches for today's meaningless finale against the Panthers. RB Mark Ingram and WR Michael Thomas are active, but don't expect them to play. Dwayne Washington figures to serve as New Orleans' lead back, with Tre'Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, Austin Carr and TommyLee Lewis at WR.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (ankle) and DB Quandre Diggs (back) are active for today's game against the Packers. They're OK for normal IDP usage.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is inactive for today’s finale against the Texans. RB Carlos Hyde (knee) is active and will join T.J. Yeldon and David Williams in the backfield. It's a situation to try to avoid in fantasy lineups. Yeldon is the best bet if you’re desperate.

11:12am EST 12/30/18

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars. With Demaryius Thomas out, DeAndre Carter and Vyncint Smith will serve as Houston’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) is inactive for today’s game against the Packers. It’s a surprise after he’s played through this injury for the past couple of weeks. His absence leaves Andy Jones and T.J. Jones as Detroit’s top WRs.

Bucs WR DeSean Jackson (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Falcons. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries will all be on the field for the majority of Tampa’s offensive snaps.

11:12am EST 12/30/18

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is inactive for today’s finale against the Lions. WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is also inactive. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow as Green Bay’s outside receivers, with Randall Cobb in the slot.

Pro Football Talk hears that Steelers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is “feeling better today” and "has a chance" to play against the Bengals. A final decision won't be made until pregame warmups, but the vibe on Brown is trending in the right direction. We'll have his official status around 3 pm ET.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is not expected to play in today's meaningless finale against the Giants. RG Zack Martin won't play, either. And we're not expecting to see QB Dak Prescott or WR Amari Cooper. Per Slater, RBs Rod Smith and Darius Jackson will "split reps" in place of Zeke.
