GM Rick Spielman confirmed the Vikings will decide between USC LT Matt Kalil, LSU CB Morris Claiborne, and Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon if they keep the No. 3 overall pick.

Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd is not in the mix. The Vikes have all three players listed as equals on their draft board, with no favorite yet to emerge. Spielman hopes to have a decision by Wednesday after spending the weekend pouring over film with his staff. Although the team has fielded trade calls, Spielman plans to hold off until Thursday night to see what develops on that front.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Reed (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday at Philadelphia.

Beat writers said Reed was in noticeable discomfort on the practice field this week, but the team has been more optimistic, and Reed was never expected to miss more than one game. Although the Eagles usually pose a tough matchup for tight ends, Reed is always one of the best players on the field whenever he dresses, and therefore can be matchup proof. He's a mid-range to high-end TE1 play against the Eagles, whose defense has come unglued over the last six weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Falcons aren't sure if Julio Jones (questionable, toe) will play Sunday.

Jones is a game-time decision after not practicing all week. He might not be more than a decoy if active. The Falcons have a late game against the Rams, but there should be an update on Jones early Sunday. Jones will be a high-risk WR1 if he plays.

9News Denver reports Trevor Siemian (questionable, foot) will start Week 14 against the Titans.

It sounds like Siemian showed enough in Saturday's walkthrough to start this week. The Broncos have been noncommittal on Siemian's status, but he's going to play through his foot sprain barring any setbacks. Siemian's return upgrades projections for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Jaguars placed TE Julius Thomas (back) on injured reserve.

Thomas had been sidelined since Week 11 and wasn't close to returning. He's missed 11 games over the last two years and hasn't played to his contract when healthy. Thomas has a $8.3 million 2017 cap hit. Jacksonville can save $7.1M from making him a post-June cut.

Browns signed CB Jamar Taylor to a three-year, $15 million extension.

A former second-round bust with Miami, the Browns traded next to nothing for Taylor at April's draft. He's turned his career around as a full-time starter opposite Joe Haden, grading out positively both outside and in the nickel spot at PFF. Taylor gives Cleveland a No. 2 corner going into next season. His new deal keeps him under control through 2019.

Bucs activated Charles Sims (knee) off injured reserve.

Coach Dirk Koetter created some worry Saturday morning when he said Sims would be activated "sooner than later," but Sims will return this week as expected. With the Bucs hurting at receiver, he could have a big role in the passing game. Despite coming out of a long injury layoff, Sims has some RB3 appeal even in standard leagues. Tampa Bay also promoted WR Donteea Dye off the practice squad while waiving OL Josh Allen and DT John Hughes.

ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler believes 30-40 snaps is Ladarius Green's "range because of the Steelers’ run-heavy sets."

Green saw his snap share jump to 48 percent last week against the Giants, but that might be his ceiling if Fowler is correct. The good news is Green runs a route on almost all of his snaps, giving him plenty of target opportunities despite the limited snap percentage. With a pretty favorable schedule down the stretch, Green should be a solid TE1 the rest of the way.

Luke Kuechly (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Chargers.

It is a surprise after Kuechly got in a full practice Friday, but it appears as if he did not pass the final test with an independent neurologist. He remains week to week. S Kurt Coleman and CB Daryl Worley were able to clear the protocol and will play against the Chargers.

Justin Forsett said 99 percent of the Broncos' offense is the same as the system he ran under Gary Kubiak in Baltimore.

"You gotta be patient with decisive decision-making," Forsett said. "I love it because it gives you a lot of options and freedom that some of the other schemes don’t allow you to have." The familiarity should allow Forsett to take on a big role right out of the gate, with Kubiak expecting him to "split" work with Devontae Booker this week against the Titans. Forsett cannot be trusted in the starting lineup in his first game with Denver, but he needs to be added in all leagues.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Julio Jones will be "a decoy at best" Week 14 against the Rams.

Ledbetter is doubling down on his Friday report that Jones will not play. Coach Dan Quinn said Friday he "anticipates" Jones will be active, but Ledbetter says he is "calling coach's bluff." Playing in an afternoon kick and potentially limited to decoy status, Jones looks way too risky to trust in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Owners should find other options.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: It’s a great spot to fire up Taylor Gabriel in tournaments. Mohamed Sanu has already been ruled out and if Jones is a decoy, Gabriel would become the de facto number one receiver. His role has increased over the past four games; he’s seen at least five targets in each and caught three touchdowns in that stretch. If Jones starts, Gabriel will have a nice matchup with E.J. Gaines, who has allowed 0.43 fantasy points per route defended, the third-most in the league.

Giants activated Shane Vereen (triceps) off injured reserve.

The transaction is not yet official, but it is expected to come "barring anything unforeseen" during Saturday's practice. Vereen is also expected to be active Sunday night against the Cowboys, but his role is questionable in an already jumbled backfield. Vereen is a fine stash in PPR leagues, but he is too risky to trust in the first week of the playoffs. Vereen's presence makes Rashad Jennings an even lower floor RB3.
