Lions declared DT Nick Fairley (knee) inactive for Sunday's Week 16 game at Chicago.
Bucs FS Dashon Goldson (shin) is active for Week 16 against the Packers.
Goldson was limited in practice this week, but will play despite being listed as questionable. The Bucs inactives are WR Robert Herron, WR Solomon Patton, RB Mike James, CB Isaiah Frey, OT Anthony Collins, DL Lawrence Sidbury, and TE/FB Evan Rodriguez.
Shane Vereen (ankle) is officially active for Week 16 against the Jets.
Dwayne Bowe (illness) is active for Week 16 against the Steelers.
He'll be a borderline WR4 in a dream matchup with the Steelers' shaky secondary.
Cam Newton is active for Week 16 against the Browns.
He's officially starting and gets a matchup boost with Joe Haden (shoulder) on the Browns' inactive list.
Chiefs declared WR Donnie Avery, QB Aaron Murray, CB Marcus Cooper, RB Charcandrick West, OL Eric Kush, OL Larry Duvernay-Tardif and DL Nick Williams inactive for Week 16 against the Steelers.
Avery wasn't listed on the injury report, so he's a healthy scratch. Dwayne Bowe (illness) is good to go against the Steelers' bottom-five secondary. With Avery banished to the bench, we'd expect a bigger role for Albert Wilson.
Julio Jones (strained oblique) is officially active for Week 16 against the Saints.
The Falcons reportedly saw enough from Jones in a pre-game workout to make him active despite Jones missing every practice this week. Jones could be limited by his oblique injury, but the buzz around Falcons' camp has always been he would be more than a decoy if active. He is a risky play during championship week, but his upside makes him a mid-range WR2 even with the risk.
The Boston Globe's Ben Volin expects Shane Vereen to "pick up the slack in the passing game" with Julian Edelman (concussion) out for Week 16.
It's quite possible Sunday will be a "Vereen Game" against the Jets. He's had a lot of success against New York in the past, and it seems unlikely that the Patriots would attack Rex Ryan's stout defensive front with a power rushing attack, particularly after losing LeGarrette Blount (shoulder). Vereen is an intriguing RB2/flex play in PPR leagues and cheap "punt" in daily formats.
