Touchdown Pick'em

Latest Player News

Dorial Green-Beckham (abdomen) is not expected to play Sunday against the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Impact

Although Green-Beckham's likely absence Sunday thins out Philadelphia's depth at receiver, Jordan Matthews' expected return from an ankle injury softens the blow. Green-Beckham was unable to practice throughout the week, and Saturday's report gives further solidifies the notion that he won't be available for the Eagles' divisional showdown. Nelson Agholor and Bryce Treggs stand to see an uptick in targets should Green-Beckham sit out Sunday.

Jordan Matthews (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Impact

A right ankle injury landed Matthews on the injury report this week, but the talented wideout is expected to take the field Sunday. He was able to log a full practice Thursday, which suggests that his ankle should be able to hold up in Sunday's contest. Aside from a truncated outing against Green Bay, Matthews has seen 10 or more targets in each of his last four games.

Ryan Mathews (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Impact

The Eagles backfield will get a boost Sunday with the return of Mathews following a two-game absence. He'll face a Redskin defense that has been suspect against the run this season. Mathews racked up 60 yards on the ground on just nine carries in Week 6 against Washington.

Jack Allen was signed to the Saints' active roster Saturday, NOLA.com reports.

Impact

Allen, an undrafted rookie out of Michigan State, may be forced into action Sunday against the Bucs if starting center Max Unger (foot) is unable to play; Unger is officially listed as questionable after missing practice both Thursday and Friday.

A.J. Francis was released by the Redskins on Saturday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Impact

Francis failed to make much, if any, of an impact for the Redskins this season and was released in order to activate offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger off injured reserve.

Kory Lichtensteiger (calf) was activated off injured reserved Saturday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Impact

Lichtensteiger landed on IR after injuring his calf in Week 3 against the Giants. He's expected to back up Joe Sullivan at center Sunday against the Eagles.

Trevor Siemian (foot) is expected to start Sunday against the Titans, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Impact

Siemian ceded starting duties to Paxton Lynch in last week's victory over Jacksonville due to a sprained left foot, but split reps with the rookie in practice this week with hope that his one-game absence didn't evolve into a multi-week vacation. Considering Siemian appears to have avoided any and all setbacks thus far, he should be under center come kickoff.

Mike Adams (back) is ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lions.

Impact

After collecting DNPs in practice throughout the week, Adams didn't even travel with the team to Detroit.

Jordan Richards (knee) is questionable to play Monday night against Baltimore.

Impact

While Richards was unable to play last week because of an injured knee, he managed to participate in every practice this week – albeit in a limited fashion. However, even if he's ultimately ruled out, his absence will likely have a minimal impact on the outcome of the game.

Elandon Roberts (hamstring) is questionable to play Monday night against Baltimore.

Impact

Roberts, a sixth-rounder out of Houston, was a limited participant in practice this week. If he ultimately can't play, look for Barkevious Mingo to slide into the starting lineup.

Eric Rowe (hamstring) is questionable to play Monday night against Baltimore.

Impact

Rowe hurt his hamstring last week against the Rams and was a limited participant throughout this week's slate of practices. If he is ultimately ruled out, expect Cyrus Jones and Justin Coleman to see additional playing time.

Matthew Slater (foot) is questionable to play Monday night against Baltimore.

Impact

Though Slater missed the past two games with an injured foot, he was fit to participate in every practice session this week. Expect his status to be confirmed prior to kickoff.

Martellus Bennett (ankle) is is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against Baltimore.

Impact

Although Bennett was listed as a limited participant in practice since Thursday, the imposing tight end has seemingly been banged up for much of the season and has yet to miss a single game. We expect that trend to continue into Monday night.

Danny Amendola (ankle) is ruled out of Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Impact

Amendola injured his ankle last Sunday against the Rams and subsequently logged a DNP in every practice this week. His absence opens the door for Malcolm Mitchell to see even more playing time than the surging rookie already has of late.

Alex Lewis (ankle) is doubtful to play Monday night against New England, ESPN reports.

Impact

Lewis is working his way back from a high-ankle sprain suffered in mid-November. Considering he returned to practice just this week, he appears a long shot to be ready to play.

Marshal Yanda (shoulder) is questionable to play Monday night against the Patriots, ESPN reports.

Impact

Yanda was a full participant in every practice this week, so he should be good to go come game time.

Crockett Gillmore (thigh) is ruled out of Monday night's game against the Patriots, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Impact

Gillmore will first need to get back on the practice field in order to play again. He's now set to miss his sixth straight game.

Lorenzo Taliaferro (thigh) is ruled out of Monday night's game against the Patriots, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Impact

Taliaferro wasn't at practice again this week and will now miss his fourth straight game. Consequently, the Ravens' backfield duties will continue to be handled by a trio of Terrance West, Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen.

Charles Sims (knee) was officially activated from injured reserve Saturday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Impact

As expected, Sims officially makes his highly-anticipated return to the active roster and will join Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers in helping provide the Bucs with a three-headed monster at tailback, where Sims projects to be the pass-catching specialist of the bunch. However, for fantasy purposes, it isn't clear how carries will be distributed right off the bat.

Antonio Allen (concussion) was waived/injured by the Jets on Saturday.

Impact

Allen has been a non-factor for the Jets this season and is now dealing with a concussion. He'll finish the 2016 campaign with five tackles and zero passes defensed across 12 games. Linebacker Freddie Bishop was signed to the active roster in a corresponding move.
