ESPN's Adam Schefter says impending free agent WR Danny Amendola signing with the Patriots is "definitely possible."

Amendola is clearly Sam Bradford's go-to guy and is still just 27 years old, but his inability to sustain health could prevent the Rams from making a pricey long-term commitment. Using the franchise tag on Amendola would put them right up against the salary cap. Meanwhile, the Patriots have been tight-lipped on their plans for their own free agent slot man, Wes Welker. There were usage signs early in the year that they were preparing to move on. Schefter calls Amendola a "poor man's, younger, cheaper Welker." It's one of fantasy's biggest stories to monitor as we prepare for free agency to open in March.

Jordan Reed (shoulder) said he expects to play Week 14 against the Eagles.

Dec 8 - 3:09 PM

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.
Dec 8 - 2:21 PM

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.
Dec 8 - 2:15 PM

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 14, and could require surgery.

It's sounding like Mangold's season is most likely over. He could be headed to injured reserve before Sunday's game against the 49ers to free up a roster spot. Wesley Johnson is manning the pivot in Mangold's absence. One month shy of his 33rd birthday, Mangold is signed through 2017.
Dec 8 - 1:23 PM

Jordan Reed (shoulder) participated in individual drills for the second straight day Thursday, but remained in "obvious pain."

Per ESPN's John Keim, Reed was in "more discomfort" than he was Wednesday. His Week 14 status is obviously looking ominous. We could know Reed's availability by Friday. Fantasy owners should plan on Vernon Davis getting the start.
Dec 8 - 1:20 PM

Theo Riddick (wrist) returned to practice on Thursday.

He sat out with a wrist injury on Wednesday but was seen at the open portion of Thursday's session. There's no concern about his status for Week 14. Riddick has settled in as a weekly RB3 in fantasy.
Dec 8 - 1:10 PM

Julio Jones (turf toe) was limited to side work in Thursday's practice.

Jones took part in the walk-through, but not team drills. He'll be listed as "DNP." Coach Dan Quinn is hoping he can get in a limited session on Friday. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported the Falcons are "optimistic" Jones will suit up against the Rams, but he's genuinely questionable. Even if he does play, it's quite possible he'll be a decoy. Jones is shaping up as a high-risk, high-reward option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Dec 8 - 1:07 PM

Florida Football Insiders' Roy Cummings believes "you could see" Jacquizz Rodgers "carrying the ball earlier and far more often" Week 14 against the Saints.

Cummings notes that Doug Martin is "still the lead back," but admits if Martin continues to struggle for yards like he has all season, OC Todd Monken could have a quick hook. Rodgers is averaging a healthy 4.4 YPC on the year, while Martin is sitting at 2.85 since coming back from a hamstring injury. Monken expressed frustration with the run game Wednesday and could be ready to do whatever it takes to get it on track. Martin is looking like a high-risk RB2/3, while Rodgers is nothing more than a flex option, though he has upside for more.
Dec 8 - 12:58 PM

Sammy Watkins (foot) returned to practice Thursday.

His Wednesday absence didn't seem to be any reason for concern after coach Rex Ryan said Watkins felt better coming out of Week 13 than he did Week 12. Watkins snaps went up last week, and we'd expect them to rise again this Sunday against the Steelers. Watkins will be a WR2/3 with big upside.
Dec 8 - 11:52 AM

Robert Griffin III will start Week 14 against the Bengals.

This was expected but is now official. The Browns want to see what they have in Griffin after losing him in the season opener. Griffin will get the final four weeks to audition for the 2017 starting job, but the odds are stacked against him. Cleveland can save $7.5 million from releasing Griffin this offseason.
