Kendall Wright hopes to play Thursday

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans receiver Kendall Wright wants to play on Thursday against the Jaguars.

And on Tuesday, after missing the last two games with a cracked bone in his hand, he went through practice without any issues.

"My feeling is I want to play, and if it feels like I felt today, then I'll be a go,'' Wright said. "But if it hurts or gets worse, I wouldn't go out there. … I want to be able to catch, block and be a complete receiver when I am out there. That's the main thing."

Fantasy Impact:

Wright said his status remains unclear. It all depends on how he feels on Wednesday. The hand remains sore, and it hurts when he catches the football, the story said. The Titan offense is not one to trust in this time of the fantasy playoffs.

Blake Bortles out of boot, expected to start

Jaguars.com - [Full Article]

Blake Bortles is out of his boot.

That’s a step in the right direction in terms of the Jaguars’ rookie quarterback playing Thursday, which Jedd Fisch believes Bortles will do.

Fisch, the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator, said while Bortles did not participate in the team’s light work on Monday evening, he is preparing as if Bortles will play and start against the Tennessee Titans Thursday.

“As far as I know, it’s going to be Blake,” Fisch said Tuesday as the Jaguars (2-12) prepared to play the Titans (2-12) at EverBank Field Thursday at 8:25 p.m.

“We’re going to obviously see how he practices. He did not participate (Monday), so we’ll have to see how he does today, then see how it looks today and tomorrow.

“The plan right now is to see how he feels.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans are ranked 19th in allowing fantasy points to QBs. Even in what is an OK matchup on paper, it's tough to trust Bortles even as a QB2 if this is your fantasy final, but it's looking like he's going to be able to play.

Blake Bortles dealing with sprained foot

Monday, December 15, 2014, 2:06pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Tennessee will be in Jacksonville to face the 2-11 Jaguars in the final Thursday night game of the year. The Titans have already beaten the Jaguars once, so another win this week would guarantee they finish ahead of Jacksonville and that they will pick no higher than second once the first round gets underway.

There’s a chance that they’ll be facing Chad Henne instead of Blake Bortles in that contest. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that Jaguars coach Gus Bradley deemed Bortles questionable for that game because of a sprain in the middle of his right foot.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story says, Bortles played every snap in Sunday’s 20-12 loss to the Ravens and absorbed eight sacks on the way to defeat, but it wasn’t immediately apparent during the game that he suffered an injury. He’s been on the injury report in recent weeks, perhaps because of the 46 overall sacks the team’s allowed since he took over for Henne earlier this season, but not because of a foot issue.

Rashad Jennings injures ankle again

Sunday, December 14, 2014, 7:59pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Giants running back Rashad Jennings received the first snap of the Giants' opening drive on offense, carrying the ball for three yards, and did not play a single snap after that. Jennings originally hurt his ankle two weeks ago against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and was expected to split carries for the second straight week with backup running back Andre Williams.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams replaced Jennings against Washington and figures to get a bulk of the workload going forward if Jennings has to miss more time. At this point, with the season lost, it seems like there's a good chance the Giants will take it easy with Jennings to see more of what they have with the rookie Williams at RB.

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Baltimore Ravens promoted running back Fitzgerald Toussaint from the practice squad Saturday, an indication that running back Lorenzo Taliaferro might be inactive against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact:

Taliaferro, a rookie fourth-round pick, is considered questionable after not practicing all week because of a foot injury. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak didn't hide his concern earlier this year when the Ravens played a game with only two healthy running backs. Now, with the promotion of Toussaint, the Ravens have three running backs (Justin Forsett and Bernard Pierce are the others), but Toussaint likely won't be all that much of a factor for fantasy lineups.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right shoulder, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Bortles will play against Baltimore, though he’s not much of a fantasy option at this point.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15. Gerhart likely takes over as the lead back for Jacksonville with Denard Robinson out for the year with a mid-foot sprain. The team said that Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson will also play, so it’s tough to get too excited about Gerhart in a bad matchup with Baltimore.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Robinson’s season is over with a mid-foot sprain. We would expect the Jaguars to turn back to Toby Gerhart, whom they signed to be their feature back in the offseason. Todman and Johnson will be in the mix. Gerhart's 2.9 YPC is dreadful, but he has been running better (3.5 YPC) since Week 8, once his foot injury finally healed. We wouldn't recommend him in Week 15 against the Ravens, but he should have a chance to produce against the Titans in Week 16.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. Taliaferro is expected to miss Week 15, so Bernard Pierce should serve as the primary backup behind Justin Forsett. Taliaferro and Pierce have combined to average 11.4 carries per game, so it’s not hard to envision a 10- to 13-touch workload for Pierce in a nice matchup against the Jaguars (#25 in RB aFPA).

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Bortles should continue to play through the injury.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Gerhart likely takes over as the lead back for Jacksonville with Denard Robinson out for the year with a mid-foot sprain.
