Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (right shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Roethlisberger is expected to play, but isn’t close to 100% at this point. It’s a tough matchup against Denver, but the Steelers went pass-heavy when they played the Broncos in Week 15. Roethlisberger attempted 55 passes and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. He may be without his top weapon since Antonio Brown is iffy for Sunday.

Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee, knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

Dolphins tab Adam Gase as their next head coach

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Miami Dolphins have hired Adam Gase as their next head coach.

Gase, the former offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, becomes Miami's fourth consecutive hire with no prior head-coaching experience, joining former Dolphins coaches Joe Philbin, Tony Sparano and Cam Cameron. He is considered a "quarterback guru," a highly coveted trait for Miami. He worked with quarterback Jay Cutler this season and Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow in Denver in previous seasons.

Fantasy Impact:

Prior to joining the Bears, Gase ran the Broncos' offense for two years and the team finished first in scoring in 2013 and second in 2014. Chicago's offense actually fared pretty well this season with all the injuries they suffered at receiver and tight end. Jay Cutler posted the second-highest YPA (7.58) of his career and took care of the ball about as well as he ever has. The hire is an upgrade for Tannehill.

Fantasy Impact:

Manning looked solid in his return in Week 17, so this was the expected outcome, as Legwold noted in his tweet.

Broncos plan to start Brock Osweiler Week 17

Tuesday, December 29, 2015, 8:54pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday "nothing's changed'' in the team's quarterback plan, so Brock Osweiler will prepare to start the Broncos' regular-season finale Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact:

It will be Osweiler's seventh consecutive start. Kubiak said he will also meet with Peyton Manning either Tuesday evening or Wednesday to talk about what level of participation Manning will have in the team's practices this week, the story said.

A.J. McCarron has 'significant' wrist sprain, could play Week 17

Tuesday, December 29, 2015, 1:32pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron suffered a sprained left wrist during Monday night’s loss to the Broncos.

Citing a source, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday that an MRI on McCarron’s non-throwing arm revealed no fracture and that there’s still a chance he plays next Sunday vs. the Ravens, though in a separate tweet Rapoport called the sprain “significant.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals have clinched the AFC North. They’d only get a first-round playoff bye if they win Sunday and the Broncos lose to the Chargers, the story went on to say. So, this is a meaningful game and the extra week off would be nice to give to starter Andy Dalton. The other healthy quarterback on the roster is Keith Wenning, a 2014 Ravens draft pick who’s never played in a regular season game.

Denver Post - [Full Article]

The biggest shift in the Broncos offense Monday night was the re-emergence of the no huddle offense, an asset that was prevalent when Peyton Manning was the starting quarterback.

Denver went to it late in the second quarter leading to their first points. It appeared again in the third and fourth quarters with more success.

After looking overwhelmed by the Bengals’ defensive line for much of the first half, the Broncos’ transition to the no huddle allowed its offensive line to play with more push and kept Cincinnati on their heels.

“It caught them off guard a lot,” running back C.J. Anderson. “That’s not a Kubiak-style offense that they’re used to seeing. We kind of went back into what we’ve done in previous years and good thing we all knew it.”
