Jimmy Clausen will start in Week 16 against the Lions.

The Bears benched Jay Cutler, leaving Clausen to make his first start since 2010. Clausen has potential for plug-and-play value in Marc Trestman's pass-heavy scheme, but has a difficult matchup against the Lions. Clausen will be a QB2 option for Week 16.
Dec 17 - 7:09 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears will start Jimmy Clausen over Jay Cutler in Week 16 against the Lions.

The Bears are benching Cutler just 14 starts into his seven-year, $127 million extension. Cutler has regressed in his second season in Marc Trestman's offense, leading the NFL in turnovers and averaging 6.9 yards per attempt. Owed a fully guaranteed $15.5 million next year, the Bears only option is to trade Cutler this offseason if they want to move on from him. Chicago would absorb $19 million in dead money by releasing Cutler before 2016.

Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Clay didn't suffer any setbacks last week. He'll be a TE2 option for the fantasy finals.
Dec 17 - 6:31 PM

Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) was limited Wednesday.

Charles' removal late in Sunday's win over the Raiders was precautionary. He's expected to play through his knee and ankle injuries. Charles will be a high-end RB1 for Week 16 against the Steelers.
Dec 17 - 6:03 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hopkins played all 72 snaps in Sunday's loss, so it's not clear when he suffered the injury. With Andre Johnson returning this week and Thad Lewis or Case Keenum expected to start, Hopkins should be avoided as a fantasy option.
Dec 17 - 5:50 PM

Arian Foster (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

The Texans are listing Foster with a hip injury, but this is likely for rest purposes. Foster should be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Dec 17 - 5:43 PM

Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jennings should be available this week despite his hamstring issue. He'll be updated again on Thursday.
Dec 17 - 5:30 PM

Matt Asiata (foot) was limited on Wednesday.

Asiata played the majority of snaps in Sunday's loss. There's been no indication his foot injury will keep him out this week. Asiata is a touchdown-dependent FLEX option against Miami.
