Mike Reiss on Twitter - [Full Article]

WR Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) has been downgraded to out.

Fantasy Impact:

Aaron Dobson is questionable, but the big three of Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Shane Vereen should see most of the targets against the Ravens this week.

MassLive.com - [Full Article]

Patriots WR Aaron Dobson is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, but this may be the week he returns to action.

The rookie wide receiver traveled with the Patriots to Baltimore, according to a source, making it possible that his three-week absence due to a foot sprain comes to an end Sunday. While there is no guarantee that he plays, it's worth noting that Dobson did not travel with the Patriots for last week's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

Dobson would be a risky fantasy play. He'll still see targets behind Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Shane Vereen.

Fantasy Impact:

TE Tony Gonzalez is again listed as questionable with his toe injury. He was limited in practice this week but is expected to play in what isn't a great matchup. For the 49ers, WR Michael Crabtree and RB Frank Gore are listed as probable. Gore was limited in practice Thursday and Friday but was a full go Saturday. Crabtree practiced fully all week.

Joe Flacco 'feels strongly' about playing Week 16
Saturday, December 21, 2013, 5:56pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Despite being listed as questionable — technically, 50-50 — to play on Sunday against the Patriots, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco remains expected to play despite a knee injury suffered Monday night in Detroit.

Per a league source, Flacco “feels strongly” about playing, and he won’t play only if “something happens” to the knee on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s possible, but not likely, that Flacco could twist or wrench or bang the knee in a way that exacerbates the mild MCL sprain, but assuming nothing freaky happens Flacco will suit up and play vs. New England. Despite the good matchup, Flacco is only 19th on our list of QBs this week making him a low-end QB2 option.

The Cleveland Browns placed wide receiver Davone Bess on the reserve/non-football illness list and he will miss the final two games of the season, the team announced Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bess missed practice Thursday and Friday while dealing with a "serious family issue," according to The Plain Dealer. He was listed as questionable on the Week 16 injury report, the story said. Josh Cooper will likely replace Bess in the slot. The Browns could also move around Greg Little and Josh Gordon more to compensate for Bess' absence.

John Carlson placed on IR
Saturday, December 21, 2013, 2:45pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Vikings tight end John Carlson’s latest concussion has ended his season.

The Vikings announced today that Carlson has been placed on injured reserve and will not play in the final two games of 2013.

Fantasy Impact:

Even worse, this concussion may end up costing him his career. The story said that Carlson told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune this week that he needs to confer with his family this offseason to determine whether it makes sense for him to keep playing football. Carlson declined to say exactly how many concussions he has suffered since he started playing football, but he has had at least three since 2011.
