Jets running back Ty Montgomery is officially active for the team's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens despite being limited with foot and hip injuries this week. (Source: New York Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Bell active after missing Sunday's game with an illness, Montgomery will likely return to a reserve role in the New York offense. His 12 touches last week were easily his most of the season, and he is unlikely to see a similar workload as long as Bell is healthy.

Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is officially active for the team's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday despite missing Sunday's game against the Dolphins with the flu. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Bell reportedly went out bowling the night before Sunday's game despite being listed as out with an illness, so it isn't surprising that he was able to bounce back despite the short turnaround. He is expected to step back into his lead back role on Thursday, with Ty Montgomery serving as his primary backup.

Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is officially inactive for Thursday night's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens due to a hamstring injury. (Source: New York Jets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas caught two of his four targets for 28 yards and his first touchdown of the season last week against the Dolphins, but he won't be able to follow up with his second touchdown this week. With Thomas out, Vyncint Smith and Jamison Crowder could see additional spans and targets alongside Robby Anderson.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is officially active for the team's matchup against the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football despite a knee injury. (Source: Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While he is active, Andrews might be a risky start in fantasy this week given the short turnaround after he left Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Jared Cook practiced in a limited fashion during Thursday's practice session. (Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cook will have some extra time to get ready as the Saints will be playing on Monday Night Football against the Colts this week. A final injury update about his status should be out on Sunday morning well before the start of the games.

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs logged some practice time in during Thursday's session. (Source: Scott Bair on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jacobs appears to be in a much better position to start this week than he was at this time last week. He did not practice twice prior to Week 14 and it ultimately led to him sitting out for the contest against Tennessee. If Jacobs does get the green light from Jon Gruden this week, he will have a very favorable matchup against a weak Jacksonville run defense.

When asked about his status for the team's Week 15 game against the Texans, Titans running back Derrick Henry told reporters "I'll be ready to go." (Source: Turron Davenport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Henry gave fantasy owners a scare in Week 14 when he briefly exited with a hamstring injury, but he was able to alleviate fears by returning to action. He is expected to play and continue his dominance of the league as he's currently considered the RB2 of Week 15 by our expert consensus.

Julian Edelman was able to return to practice Thursday. He's listed with knee and shoulder injuries. (Source: Mark Daniels on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots will continue to give the veteran time to recover week-to-week, and at this time there's no indication that Edelman was ever at threat of missing the team's Week 15 contest against the Bengals. It's a great matchup for New England, who could be upset and wanting to issue a statement to the league following their offense's struggles of late. Edelman continues to be a bright spot for the Patriots and his fantasy owners, and he's considering the WR6 by our expert consensus.

Adam Thielen participated in all team drills with the Minnesota Vikings during Thursday's practice session. (Source: Jeff Wald on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for Thielen as he looks to finally return to the gridiron for the first time since he hurt his hamstring back in Week 7 against the Lions. Thielen appears to be trending in the right direction to suit up for this Sunday's action versus the Chargers. Keep an eye out to see if he practices Friday as well.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that running back Raheem Mostert has "earned" a larger role with the team given his recent performances. (Source: San Francisco Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan flat out said that Mostert has given the team no choice but to offer the running back more opportunities. This is the dreaded three-way timeshare, so there is still risk with Mostert, but given his production over the last two weeks he's hard to keep out of fantasy lineups. Our expert consensus has Mostert as the RB16 entering this weekend's matchup against the Falcons.

Jordan Howard was able to practice Thursday. He's dealing with a shoulder injury. (Source: Jeff McLane on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Howard was out again Monday against the Giants, which allowed for Miles Sanders to again see the bulk of the touches out of the Eagles' backfield. If Howard returns, it would really impact Sanders' fantasy appeal, and it would also be difficult to trust Howard as he's returning from his shoulder injury.

Nelson Agholor was held out of Thursday's practice as he continues to recover from a knee injury. (Source: Mike Kaye on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Agholor's status is considered to be up in the air ahead of Week 15's matchup against Washington. With Alshon Jeffery placed on IR, the Eagles remain extremely thin at the wide receiver position. If Agholor is able to play he could see volume that would warrant fantasy consideration, but until he's able to return to practice he's hard to count on. It's also hard to count on anyone not named Zach Ertz in this offense.

Fantasy Impact: It’s an unfortunate end to the season for the perennially-injured wideout, though fantasy owners have come to expect constant health concerns when rostering Jeffery. With Nelson Agholor (knee) banged up as well, rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside looks like the top option in the receiving corps. If last week’s game was any indication of how targets will be distributed, Carson Wentz will likely lean on his tight ends and running backs to catch passes, rendering Arcega-Whiteside and newly-promoted Robert Davis desperation plays.

Jacksonville Jaguars star receiver D.J. Chark missed Wednesday's practice, and appears doubtful for Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders. (Source: Vic Tafur on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chark is not expected to play this weekend after remaining in a walking boot on Monday. He could plausibly make a faster than anticipated recovery, so this situation merits monitoring. With that being said, fantasy owners should be planning on being without the talented wide receiver for Week 15. Chris Conley, DeDe Westbrook, and Keelan Cole are expected to operate as the team’s top three receivers against the Oakland Raiders.

Minnesota Vikings superstar running back was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, and should be full go for this weekend's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. (Source: Minnesota Vikings on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dalvin Cook is good to go after being rested for the entire fourth quarter last week against the Detroit Lions. Fellow running back Alexander Mattison missed Wednesday's practice with a ankle injury, and if he is forced to miss Sunday's contest Cook could see a slightly expanded workload. Cook is a strong RB1 option against a Chargers defense surrendering 4.15 yards per carry, and 5.54 receptions per game to the running back position.

Pittsburgh Steelers superstar wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to a full practice on Wednesday. (Source: Dale Lolley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: JuJu logging a full practice session this early in the week suggests that he will be able to return to the field for this weekend's contest against the Buffalo Bills. He has a tough matchup in Tre'Davious White if the star corner decides to travel to the slot with him. Devlin Hodges has been a big upgrade on Mason Rudolph, and could propel JuJu to upside WR2 production if he is able to avoid White for the majority of the contest.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner was able to return to a full practice on Wednesday. (Source: Dale Lolley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A full practice on a Wednesday is a great sign for Conner's chances of suiting up for an important Week 15 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. There is no word yet regarding if he has regained full strength in his shoulder, which is the second hurdle to clear for a back that missed Week 14 despite logging limited practice sessions. Conner should operate as the lead back, but will likely still find himself in a timeshare despite Jaylen Samuels looking doubtful.

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. (Source: Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Devonta Freeman is expected to return to practice tomorrow, before hopefully being able to practice in full on Friday. Freeman has a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, and may see his carries limited by gamescript. With that being said, he could see an uptick in targets with number two receiver Calvin Ridley lost for the season. An RB3 with volume based RB2 upside, other options should be strongly considered if available.

Atlanta Falcons superstar wide receiver Julio Jones logged a limited session during the team's Wednesday practice. (Source: Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Expected to play against the 49ers, Julio Jones may be limited throughout the week. Jones has a plus matchup due to Richard Sherman being ruled out, and should also see an increased target share with Calvin Ridley out for the season. Despite relatively quiet outings since Week 8, projected gamescript gives Julio WR1 upside for Week 15.
