Stevie Johnson (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Johnson was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. Rotoworld ranks him as the 22nd overall wideout for Week 4.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) told reporters Friday afternoon that he feels "50-50" to play Sunday at Dallas.

Per beat writer Stephen Holder, Hilton's words were "cryptic." The Colts have very little to gain by pushing Hilton to play against the Cowboys, and much more to gain if he's 100 percent for the playoffs. We're just speculating, but would bet against Hilton being active at Dallas. Reggie Wayne and Donte Moncrief would then likely be Indianapolis' starters in two-wide sets.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera indicated Friday that DeAngelo Williams (questionable, hand) will not play Sunday at Cleveland.

Rivera left open the possibility of Williams being active on game day as an "emergency back," but he's not going to be a factor unless other running backs get injured during the game. Jonathan Stewart is an RB2 against the Browns' weak run defense. Mike Tolbert will be second in line for backfield work.

Coach Ron Rivera announced Jonathan Stewart will start Week 16 against the Browns.

DeAngelo Williams (hand) will only be used in an "emergency," leaving Stewart to handle another 20-plus carries against a suspect Cleveland run defense. With Cam Newton back under center, it should open up more running lanes than Stewart saw with Derek Anderson in Week 15. Stewart is in the RB2 discussion.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Coach Chuck Pagano cautioned to not count Hilton out for Sunday despite him not practicing at all this week. Hilton worked off to the side with trainers on Friday. Beat writer Mike Chappell is "convinced" Hilton won't play, but we're unlikely to get a definitive answer before Sunday. The Colts have already clinched the AFC South and have little chance at a first-round bye. They may choose to play it safe with their No. 1 receiver. It wouldn't be smart to risk Hilton to further injury.

Cam Newton (back) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Browns.

He'll make the start and be a high-end QB2 with unlimited upside. Derek Anderson heads back to holding the clipboard with a 2-0 record across two spot starts.
Dec 19 - 12:45 PM

C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Raiders.

It's unclear what Spiller's role will be in his return from I.R./recall due to a broken collarbone. Fred Jackson has been handling the vast majority of the work in the Buffalo backfield of late. Spiller can't be trusted in fantasy lineups during title week, even against a Raiders defense that gets gashed by running backs via the pass. Oakland has surrendered eight receiving touchdowns to running backs.

Seahawks signed DE Cliff Avril to a four-year, $28.5 million contract extension through 2018.

The deal includes $16 million guaranteed. After Avril accepted a discount from the Seahawks prior to the 2013 season on a two-year contract, it appears the 28-year-old pass rusher is taking another one to stay in Seattle. Avril has graded out as a top-seven pass-rushing 4-3 end at Pro Football Focus in 2014, as he currently sits fourth at the position with 38 quarterback hurries. He has 12.5 sacks across 29 regular-season games for the Seahawks. Seattle continues to lock up its talent.

Mike Chappell of RTV6 Indianapolis is "convinced" T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) will not play Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Chappell has been covering the Colts for 30 years. His opinion is worthy of taking note. Hilton hasn't practiced at all this week and wasn't present again Friday. If he sits, Donte Moncrief should see a major boost in snaps. With Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks lacking any semblance of separation skills, Moncrief and Coby Fleener could hog targets against the Cowboys' weak pass defense.
Dec 19 - 11:48 AM

Julio Jones (hip) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He'll be listed as questionable. We're unlikely to know Julio's status for Week 16 until Sunday morning. If he can't go, Harry Douglas will make another start opposite Roddy White. Both Douglas (foot) and White (knee) will play.
Dec 19 - 11:46 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys have left the decision to play Week 16 against the Colts up to DeMarco Murray (hand), "in which case he will definitely opt to play."

Murray's going to give it a go Sunday. He has an outside shot at netting 2,000 rushing yards -- he currently sits at 1,687 -- and is said to have a high pain tolerance. Murray's broken bone is in his left (non-dominant) hand. If he suits up, owners have to play him. Murray is having an historic season and has a plus Week 16 matchup against a leaky Colts run defense. We can't expect Murray to carry it 30 times, but 20-plus touches is doable.
Dec 19 - 10:56 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are leaning toward starting Case Keenum at quarterback for Week 16 against the Ravens.

As expected. Keenum simply knows the offense better as a whole than Thad Lewis. Keenum spent the summer with the Texans, while Lewis was signed just a few weeks ago. Neither Keenum nor Lewis would be on the fantasy radar. The Ravens may have a suspect secondary, but they have a dominant pass rush.
