Jordan Howard (RB - PHI)
Sat, Jan 1
Player Note on Jordan Howard (RB - PHI)
Miles Sanders has been ruled out for Week 17 with a broken hand. Howard sustained a stinger in Week 16 and wasn't practicing as of Wednesday. Howard has been brutally effective on the ground this season, with 75-380-3 rushing in only six games. He even got involved in the passing game last week, recording his first two receptions of the season for 19 yards. If he's able to play against Washington this week, which it appears he will do, Howard will be a mid-range RB3 in half-point PPR formats, with slightly more value in standard-scoring leagues and slightly less in full-point PPR leagues.
Jerry Jeudy (WR - DEN)
Fri, Dec 31
Player Note on Jerry Jeudy (WR - DEN)
Jeudy was able to lead the Broncos in receiving this past week, but that didn't exactly equate to top-tier fantasy production. Jeudy had just four targets and he reeled in three of them for 60 yards. That mark was the fourth highest receiving yardage total that Jeudy has recorded this entire season, which tells you how this season has gone for the talented wideout. At this point, he can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end WR3 in championship week. Update: Jeudy has been placed on the COVID list and is out for Sunday.
Jared Goff (QB - DET)
Fri, Dec 31
Player Note on Jared Goff (QB - DET)
Goff should be cleared from the COVID list for this matchup against Seattle and he's at least worth considering for starting lineups due to his recent play. Over the course of the previous four games, Goff has two top-10 fantasy finishes in there and he's been throwing touchdowns at an impressive rate. With that being said, he's still in the streaming QB conversation due to the supporting cast around him and his track record. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end QB2 against the Seahawks. Update: Goff is listed as doubtful now.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling (WR - GB)

Player Note on Marquez Valdes-Scantling (WR - GB)
MVS has yet to clear the COVID list at the time of writing, but the expectation is that he'll be back and active for this matchup against Minnesota. If he is ready to go, he's worth considering in starting lineups as a low-end WR3 with massive upside. There are still some concerns about which second WR behind Adams will have a good game any given week in this offense, but Rodgers is making it a point to get MVS involved. With the Vikings defense struggling to contain opposing passing games, MVS is a solid upside play if he clears the COVID list in time. Update: MVS has been activated off the COVID list and will play.
Pat Freiermuth (TE - PIT)

Player Note on Pat Freiermuth (TE - PIT)
At the time of writing, it's unclear if Freiermuth will be able to return in time for this game. However, due to the fact that he's dealing with a concussion and that he missed last week's game because of it, fantasy managers should plan to not have the talented rookie TE available for Week 17.
Austin Hooper (TE - CLE)
Thu, Dec 30
Player Note on Austin Hooper (TE - CLE)
Hooper's had some moments of relevancy this season, but he's simply stayed in the same category for the majority of the year. He's a touchdown-or-bust option each and every week.
Chase Claypool (WR - PIT)
Thu, Dec 30
Player Note on Chase Claypool (WR - PIT)
Claypool has plenty of talent and big-play ability, but this offense in Pittsburgh is struggling to take advantage of his talent at this point. Claypool should continue to do enough to be a decent WR3 option, but the days of us hoping he would be a WR2 with upside are essentially over.
Diontae Johnson (WR - PIT)
Thu, Dec 30
Player Note on Diontae Johnson (WR - PIT)
Johnson continues to be one of the sole bright spots in this Steelers offense this season. In Week 16 against the Packers, he saw 9 targets and he reeled in 6 of them for 51 yards and a touchdown. Against the Browns this week, who are allowing 19.7 fantasy points per game to opposing WRs, Johnson can be started as a low-end WR1.
Jarvis Landry (WR - CLE)
Thu, Dec 30
Player Note on Jarvis Landry (WR - CLE)
Landry had started to get on a roll from a fantasy perspective before missing Week 15, but he fell flat in his first game back against the Packers. The state of the passing game certainly didn't help and Landry was only able to finish as the WR51 last week. Looking at this matchup against the Steelers, Landry can be played as a high-floor FLEX option, but there's very little upside with Mayfield struggling the way that he is currently.
Najee Harris (RB - PIT)
Thu, Dec 30
Player Note on Najee Harris (RB - PIT)
Harris had an atrocious outing in Week 15, but he was able to bounce back in Week 16 and provide a solid performance for fantasy managers. He had 93 yards on the ground on 19 carries and added 17 yards on 5 receptions as well. With the offense struggling around him, there's very little upside with Harris at this point, but he should still continue to see enough volume to provide a high floor. He can be viewed as a low-end RB1 in this matchup against Cleveland.
