Joe Mixon (foot) participated in Thursday's practice.

It is good news after Mixon was limited Wednesday. At this point, he appears on track to suit up against the Chargers. Even after Giovani Bernard took on more work last week, Mixon remains a back-end RB1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins have yet to make a decision on Jay Gruden's future.

The Redskins are on a four-game losing streak after blowing their lead in the NFC East. Alex Smith's season and potentially career-ending injury is part to blame, but Gruden's coaching and roster management has also played a role in the second-half collapse. Gruden is only signed through 2020, so the Redskins can move on with relative ease this offseason. Even if Gruden stays, we'd expect some shakeup to Washington's staff.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with cracked ribs.

Roethlisberger suffered the injury in last week's loss to Oakland. There was some confusion about the nature of his injury due to a faulty X-ray machine in Oakland (classic Raiders), though further testing confirmed that Roethlisberger is indeed dealing with cracked ribs. It's obviously not ideal, especially with Pittsburgh's season on the line, though Ben will continue to play through the pain. He gets the Patriots at home in Week 15.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Lamar Miller's ankle injury isn't serious.

Miller was sidelined the entire second half of Saturday's win, but it sounds like he's avoided a high-ankle sprain. There's a chance he plays next week without missing any time. With Miller at less than 100 percent, the Texans may look to activate D'Onta Foreman in Week 16.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports James Conner (doubtful, ankle) is expected to return for Week 16 against the Saints.

Conner got in a limited practice Friday but it wasn't enough to get cleared. That puts him on track to return next week after sitting the last two games. Conner's absence has been a downgrade to the entire Steelers offense. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will continue to fill in against the Patriots.

Melvin Gordon (knee) is expected to return for Week 16 against the Ravens.

Gordon tested out his knee in pre-game warmups ahead of Thursday's matchup with Kansas City but wasn't able to get the green light. Coming off the Chargers' mini-bye, he should be ready to roll for Saturday's game against Baltimore. Gordon apologized to his fantasy owners for his untimely absence, but all will be forgiven if he turns in a strong performance in Week 16. Rookie Justin Jackson filled in for Gordon Thursday night in KC.

Courtland Sutton sealed 5-of-6 targets for 42 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to the Browns.

Sutton was limited in Week 14 with a thigh injury and noticeably came up limping on a downfield target that missed against the Browns. The fact remains that he's still only scored once since Demaryius Thomas was sent packing and has yet to surpass 90 yards in any game this year. His 11 total targets the past two weeks are also third on the team behind DaeSean Hamilton's 20 and Tim Patrick's 18. Sutton's athleticism is extremely enticing, but it's finally time we admit that he may not turn that into viable WR2 production until 2019. He'll again be a low-floor boom-or-bust WR3/flex against the Raiders in Week 16.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play Week 15 against the Seahawks.

It is not a surprise after he got in three limited practices this week. Breida's return creates a headache in a 49ers backfield which was dominated by Jeff Wilson the last two weeks. It is possible Wilson keeps a role even with Breida back, making both risky options against Seattle. If forced to choose, Breida is the best bet.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Dante Pettis (foot) will play Week 15 against the Seahawks.

There seemed to be some genuine concern about Pettis, but he is good to go. Working as the No. 1 receiver, Pettis has been on fire as of late, catching four touchdowns in his last three games including a 5-129-2 line in Seattle two weeks ago. He is a solid WR3 play with upside.
Dec 16 - 12:11 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Ivory (shoulder) is a game-time decision for Week 15 against the Lions.

With LeSean McCoy (hamstring) reportedly unlikely to play, Ivory's status is suddenly important. Even if he goes, Ivory will only be a desperation fantasy option with an offensive line McCoy has struggled to produce behind. If Ivory sits, the Bills will turn to some combination of Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford with Isaiah McKenzie likely getting a handful of carries as well.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not expected to play Week 15 against the Lions.

It is a surprise after he got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. With Chris Ivory (shoulder) a game-time decision, the Bills may have to turn to Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford in the backfield. If that happens, it is likely gadget player Isaiah McKenzie sees a handful of carries as well. This is a situation to avoid in the semifinals.
Dec 16 - 12:08 AM

DaeSean Hamilton hauled in 7-of-12 targets for 46 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to the Browns.

Case Keenum has historically leaned on his slot receiver when pressured, as has been the case the past two weeks since Hamilton took over for Emmanuel Sanders (torn ACL, IR). With 12 targets on the night, Hamilton now leads the Broncos with a 23% target share since Week 14. Seemingly an every-down player for the rest of the year, the fourth-round rookie is safe high-floor WR3 in PPR leagues (especially in Week 16 against the hapless Raiders' secondary).
