Fantasy Impact:

Charlie Whitehurst will get the start in what is shaping up to be one of the worst Thursday Night Football games of all time. Kendall Wright is active after missing a couple of games with a hand injury, and apparently won’t be wearing a splint or a cast on his hand. He’s not a great start, but he’s been pretty solid when active and with Justin Hunter out, he should get plenty of targets. We prefer Nate Washington, who had a strong Week 15. The matchup against Jacksonville (#4 in WR aFPA) is not favorable.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. No worries here.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Raiders QB Derek Carr (right thumb) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) was ruled out for Week 16. Mark Sanchez hasn’t played well the last two weeks, but he has a great matchup with Washington, who is #30 in QB aFPA.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) took limited practice reps Thursday. Manning will face Cincinnati, but he hasn’t played well (fantasy-wise) in recent weeks. He’s still pretty much a must-start, but it’s conceivable that an owner would bench him for Matthew Stafford or Matt Ryan, given the matchups.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Newton is on track to return against the Browns, who are #3 in QB aFPA. He is currently our #14 QB for Week 16.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) did not practice Wednesday. It’s a bad matchup and he’ll be without his top receiver, Keenan Allen.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Roethlisberger is a top 10 start against Kansas City.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Romo will be fine for a so-so matchup against Indianapolis.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Texans QB Tom Savage (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Savage is out for Week 16. Case Keenum is expected to start.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Ryan Lindley will draw the start against Seattle.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday. Anderson is a strong start against Cincinnati (#32 in RB aFPA).

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Asiata should continue to carry the load for Minnesota. He has a so-so matchup with Miami on Sunday.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Blount was fairly ineffective in Week 15, which led to Jonas Gray seeing more snaps and touches, though Blount got the rushing touchdown. Keep in mind that anything can happen in the Patriot backfield.
