Bills OC Anthony Lynn said Mike Gillislee will continue to get red-zone work.
"That's his role," said Lynn. Gillislee vultured a pair of goal-line touchdowns last week against the Raiders and now has six touchdowns over his last seven games. That might concern owners of LeSean McCoy, though Shady has still managed 10 touchdowns (nine rushing, one receiving) in 11 games this year. McCoy is obviously the more well-established of the two, but the Bills are running the ball enough for both players to have fantasy success. Consider Gillislee an RB3/flex going forward.
Derek Carr (thumb) is expected to continue operating exclusively out of the shotgun in Thursday's game against the Chiefs.
The Raiders' offense has been 100 percent shotgun since Carr injured his pinkie in Week 12. It wasn't an issue on Sunday against the Bills, and shouldn't be against the Chiefs on Thursday. Carr's main Week 14 concerns are Justin Houston and frigid temperatures.
Miami will look to LB Mike Hull if LB Kiko Alonso (thumb) is inactive in Week 14.
Hull had played just one snap this season prior to Week 13, but saw 26 snaps after Alonso suffered a thumb injury last week. Hull made the most of his time, recording four tackles in limited action. Miami will look to bounce back after being shredded by Joe Flacco and the Ravens in Week 13, when the Baltimore quarterback threw for 381 yards and four scores. The Dolphins D/ST is a mid-tier fantasy option in Week 14 at home against Arizona, who has allowed two or more sacks in six consecutive games.
Trevor Siemian (foot) practiced for the second straight day Thursday.
Siemian was officially "limited" on Wednesday, and will probably remain so on Thursday. Right now, he's on track to start against the Titans, but it's not a certainty. The Broncos will probably make a final determination on Friday. Siemian's status is most important for how it affects Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
The Bengals have moved Cedric Ogbuehi to left tackle.
He's been ousted by Jake Fisher at right tackle. Ogbuehi will finish out the season as Andrew Whitworth's backup on the left side.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets are shutting C Nick Mangold (ankle) down for the rest of the season.
This was the most likely outcome after the team ruled Mangold out for Week 14 and announced he might need surgery. One month shy of his 33rd birthday, Mangold is due $8.475 million between salary and bonuses in the final year of his contract next season. Mangold remains a solid center, but probably won't be back at that price after struggling through injury in 2016.
Jets WR Devin Smith is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Activated from the PUP list a month ago, Smith has yet to be active this season. The No. 37 overall pick of last year's draft, Smith tore his ACL almost exactly one year ago. It's going to be hard for him to contribute behind Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa, and Bryce Petty favorite Robby Anderson down the stretch of a lost year, but perhaps he's worth a Dynasty flier.
Bills coach Rex Ryan is "hopeful" Robert Woods (knee) will return against the Steelers in Week 14.
Ryan likes what he's seen from Woods at practice this week. OC Anthony Lynn also anticipates Woods playing, though he isn't sure how much. Woods has missed the last two games with a sprained knee. With Sammy Watkins back, he's merely a WR3/4.
