The Packers have ruled out Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) for Week 15.
Matt Flynn will get the start. It's conceivable Rodgers could return for Week 16, but that decision will be impacted by whether Green Bay can go to Dallas and beat the Cowboys with Flynn under center. Thus, the odds are likely against Rodgers playing another snap this year. Still, fantasy owners should hold out hope and keep him rostered into the season's final fantasy week.
Toby Gerhart (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Gerhart missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, and was only a light participant on Friday. He was seen jogging by reporters. Gerhart would be a poor flex option in the event Adrian Peterson (foot) were inactive against Philly.
Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) are both listed as questionable for Week 15 against Philadelphia after returning to light practices on Friday.
Coach Leslie Frazier stated Friday that the Vikings would either decide Saturday or early Sunday on whether Peterson will play against the Eagles. Fantasy owners need to continue monitoring his status closely deep into the weekend. Gerhart is clearly well short of 100 percent, and has generally had limited effectiveness even when at full strength. Regardless of Peterson's status, we'd avoid Gerhart in Week 15 fantasy lineup decisions.
Vikings TE John Carlson (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15.
The Vikings will turn to some combo of Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford.
"Several players" on the Cowboys tell the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that ILB Sean Lee (neck) is not expected to play in Week 15.
It's good news for the fantasy matchup of Eddie Lacy. Lee suffered a scary stinger in last Monday night's loss to the Bears, immediately after returning from a hamstring injury. Dallas' defense is among the league's weakest.
Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) were light participants as the Vikings convened for Friday's practice.
Per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, "they weren't doing much while reporters were in the building." We'll have another update on Peterson later today, but odds remain against him starting against the Eagles. In the event he did, however, Peterson would be a locked-in RB1. Gerhart is clearly still hobbled and shouldn't be on RB2 radars even if Peterson were declared inactive.
Jordan Reed (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 15.
FOX Sports reported on Friday that Reed would be shut down for the season, so we're not expecting him to be play at Atlanta. Per beat writer Chris Russell, Reed "has to past a test tomorrow and then the conditioning test on Sunday." In the unlikely event Reed is active, he'll be a TE1 against the Falcons.
Jets promoted WR Saalim Hakim from their practice squad.
The 2012 UDFA out of Tarleton State spent time on the Saints' active roster late last year. He's taking Stephen Hill's place on the 53-man roster.
