Fantasy Impact: Forte's status wasn't really all that much in doubt, as he's played through minor injuries for the past two weeks. With the three-headed animal that is the Jets backfield, Forte does not make a particularly enticing option this week.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn was questionable coming in, but there was a report early this morning that he wasn't going to play today with his rib injury. The Saints should easily handle the Jets and Bryce Petty, so there's no reason to push Ginn. Willie Snead is expected to see a much larger role in the offense with Ginn out, but he's obviously a risky play given his lack of performance this year.


Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is officially active for the Vikings' Week 15 game against the Bengals. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rudolph had been listed as doubtful and Mike Zimmer essentially said he would be out on Friday, before he was upgraded to questionable this weekend and will now start. It's doubtful that the Vikings would deploy him in a game they should be able to win handily unless they're confident in his health, so start Rudolph as your normally would.


The Broncos are placing Trevor Siemian on Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury, according to Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Siemian injured the shoulder early in last night's game against the Colts, and Brock Osweiler was outstanding in relief, accounting for three touchdowns. Outside of deep two-quarterback leagues, it's doubtful that fantasy owners were relying on Siemian at this point, and it's unclear if Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will start next week against the Redskins. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders would likely perform better with Osweiler, for what it's worth to fantasy owners.


Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on Injured Reserve this week, ending his 2017 season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peterson had a brief resurgence with the Cardinals, but that was more about an increase in volume than effectiveness. He reportedly plans to play in 2018, but likely won't be much of a fantasy factor unless he lands in the absolutely ideal situation.


ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New England Patriots are signing free-agent WR Kenny Britt. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After being waived by the Browns last week, Britt is signing with the Patriots. A team in need of wide receiver depth, Britt will likely serve as the team's WR5 ROS. However, despite his reemergence, his fantasy value remains at a minimum.
