Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Eagles. He put in limited practices on Friday and Saturday. HC Jack Del Rio said Saturday afternoon that there's “a good chance" Cooper will play vs. Philly. He still can't be trusted in fantasy lineups, though, after aggravating that ankle injury just 14 snaps into his last outing.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Friday. The team reportedly expects him to play against the Eagles on Monday. We'll see about that. Regardless, Cooper can't be trusted in Week 16 fantasy lineups after lasting just 14 snaps last time out.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein has been placed on IR with a back injury. It's a significant blow to a Super Bowl contender. Zuerlein has arguably been the best K in the league this year, connecting on 38 of 40 FG attempts, including 6 from 50+ yards. He'll be replaced by K Sam Ficken, who's never attempted a regular-season kick. He's gone 5 of 6 on FGs over the past 2 preseasons but connected on just 72% of his attempts at Penn State. We wouldn't mess with Ficken in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (back) is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. He entered the day questionable because of a back injury that cost him Friday's practice. If you waited for him, though, go ahead and use him in your IDP lineup.

Cowboys OLB Sean Lee is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Raiders. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with the hamstring injury that cost him 3 games before allowing him to return last week against the Giants. But Lee sat out Friday's practice with a back injury. Unfortunately, we won't know Lee's game status until about 7 p.m. ET Sunday, though we'll be looking for earlier indications. If you can secure Anthony Hitchens as IDP insurance, then waiting on Lee could prove worthwhile. The Cowboys, Raiders, Falcons and Bucs don't present many other options likely to be available on waivers, though. If it's a D flex spot, then you can check the DB rankings and DL rankings for potential replacements. Dallas also ruled out DT David Irving (concussion) for the 2nd straight week.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. He didn't practice all week and certainly isn't a lock to be back for Week 16. WR Michael Crabtree and TE Jared Cook will be the best bets for targets vs. Dallas.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on him playing against the Cowboys on Sunday night after aggravating that sprained ankle last week.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper re-injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Kansas City. He went catch-less on 1 target before exiting. We'll see if Cooper is able to return.

The Cowboys will be without DT David Irving (concussion) and slot CB Orlando Scandrick (back) for today's game against the Giants. DT Maliek Collins (foot) is active after hitting the weekend questionable. He could see an increased role in Irving's absence but is a shaky IDP bet at best. Scandrick's absence only enhances the matchup for Giants WR Sterling Shepard.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. So he evidently looked and felt good enough in pregame warmups. ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported this morning that Cooper will be on a “pitch count” — and there’s always the risk of an in-game setback with these ankle injuries. Consider Cooper more of a WR3 flier than a reliable fantasy play today.

There's a "good chance" Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) plays against the Chiefs today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cooper "impressed his team with how quickly he improved late in the week," Rapoport adds. After getting in just 1 limited practice, it's tough to believe Cooper will be anywhere close to 100% if active. It makes him a risk/reward WR3 against the defense he torched for 210 yards and 2 scores back in Week 7.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (hand) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll start Sunday's game against the Giants -- and we're not expecting the hand to be an issue. Still, Prescott is a shaky QB1 after failing to reach 180 passing yards in 5 of his last 6 games.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Chiefs after returning to a limited practice on Friday. HC Jack Del Rio said Cooper made “pretty gradual” improvement this week and "moved around pretty well" on Friday. He might end up as a game-time decision. Raiders-Chiefs kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll know Cooper's status by noon. If active, he'll be a risk/reward WR3 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. It looks like he'll miss this weekend's game against the Chiefs. That figures to turn WR Michael Crabtree into a target hog in a plus matchup.

Bengals S George Iloka initially drew a 1-game suspension from the NFL for a shot to the head of Steelers WR Antonio Brown in Monday night's loss. But the league overturned its ruling on appeal and changed the punishment to a fine. Iloka hasn't been much of an IDP factor, but his presence will help a Cincinnati defense ravaged by injuries. Six starters missed practice Wednesday, including SS Shawn Williams and the top 3 CBs.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper has cleared the concussion protocol, according to insider Scott Bair. Cooper missed Wednesday's practice with his ankle injury, though, and is still iffy for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (hand) is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Prescott escaped with just a bruised hand and didn't seem impacted by it last Thursday night. He's a borderline QB1 for Week 14.

Raiders WR Amari Cooper remains in the concussion protocol, according to insider Michael Gehlken. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said yesterday that Cooper's ankle injury was the bigger Week 14 concern, but the concussion obviously also remains an obstacle. We'll monitor his progress throughout the week, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him playing against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said Monday that the team expects OLB Sean Lee to practice Wednesday and that Lee expects to be ready for Sunday's game against the Giants. Lee missed the past 3 contests and most of the loss in Atlanta with a hamstring injury. He belongs right back in IDP lineups when he returns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the ankle injury looks like the bigger obstacle for Raiders WR Amari Cooper than does his progression through the concussion protocol. Cooper hit the injury list in Week 13 with both issues, but the ankle looks like the thing we'll need to watch heading into an upside Week 14 spot at Kansas City. Even an active Cooper could carry re-injury risk. We'll be watching closely for his participation this week and any reports on his outlook. Oakland, of course, will get WR Michael Crabtree back from his 1-game suspension.
