Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Adams had a very good game against Washington, but went down with a knee injury in the second half. Jared Abbrederis would likely play 70% of the snaps is Adams is out.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Amendola should be able to play, but he’ll take a backseat to Julian Edelman this week.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Brown is iffy at this point in the week but could be cleared by the weekend. If he’s out, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Hayward-Bey would get a bump, but this is a bad matchup against a good Denver pass defense.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Edelman says he’ll be at “full throttle” on Saturday. He’s been out a while, so we’re not expecting his usual production.

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 7:15pm

Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) practiced fully Wednesday. LaFell should be fine given the full Wednesday practice.

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 7:15pm

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Maclin reportedly has a “mild” high-ankle sprain, so he may be able to give it a go this weekend. Don’t expect him to be 100%, however. Chris Conley would likely see the biggest jump in snaps if Maclin is out/limited.

Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It sounds as if the knee injury isn’t anything to worry about.

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 7:15pm

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) practiced fully Wednesday. Kelce should be good to go to face the Patriots. He’s coming off of a big game and may see double digit targets, especially if Jeremy Maclin is out.

Packers TE Justin Perillo (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.

Chargers hire Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator

Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 4:05pm

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chargers have a new offensive coordinator, and it's the old one, sources said Wednesday. Ken Whisenhunt is back after having spent 2013 in San Diego. The team finished with the NFL's fifth-ranked offense that year. Notably, the Chargers ran the football with relative consistency, something that's proven a struggle in the two seasons since Whisenhunt left to become the Titans' head coach. He was relieved from his duties in Tennessee last November.

Last week, the Chargers moved on from Frank Reich, Whisenhunt's successor.

Fantasy Impact:

Whisenhunt has had an up-and-down record running offenses in the NFL, but his last stint in San Diego went very well. Interestingly, he's had much more success from a statistical perspective as a coordinator than he has as a head coach. In four seasons as an OC, his offenses have average ranking of 11.0 in points scored. In eight years as a head coach, that average falls to 20.0.
