Percy Harvin (ankle) believes he will play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, but it's beyond 2014 that most in New York are curious about.

For his part, Harvin said he "absolutely" wants to remain with Gang Green beyond his nine-game audition.

"I feel at home here. I'm comfortable with all the players," Harvin said Friday, per the New York Post. "I like the vibe around here."

With a $10.5 million tab in 2015 and no guaranteed money past this year, the Jets must decide whether they want to pay the receiver or cut him loose.

Fantasy Impact:

Harvin has been a bigger part of the Jets' offense than he was in the five games he spent in Seattle before the mid-season trade. He's averaging 12.2 yards per reception with Gang Green and is coming off a six-catch, 124-yard performance last week.

Browns waive K Billy Cundiff; sign Garrett Hartley

Saturday, December 13, 2014, 3:58pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Billy Cundiff practiced inside FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday, working on his mechanics and hoping to snap out of his recent funk.

He won't play there Sunday.

The Browns waived the slumping kicker Saturday and replaced him with veteran Garrett Hartley, who will likely kick against the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals.

Cundiff's release comes a week after he missed a 40-yarder in a one-point loss to Indianapolis and following two days in which he kicked well in practice before injuring his knee.

Fantasy Impact:

Cundiff missed Friday's practice and coach Mike Pettine said the 34-year-old veteran had injured himself the previous day, the story said. Cundiff refused to discuss his injury, deferring all questions about his status to Pettine. Although Cundiff had a sleeve on his left leg, the Browns said on their injury report he hurt his right knee.

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.

Broncos place Montee Ball on IR

Saturday, December 13, 2014, 3:52pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Montee Ball's season has come to an end.

The Denver Broncos placed the running back on season-ending injured reserve, the team announced Saturday.

Ball entered the season as the Broncos' No. 1 tailback after the team let Knowshon Moreno walk in the offseason. However, the 24-year-old has suffered an injury-riddled season after amassing 559 yards on 120 carries his rookie year.

Ball underwent an emergency appendectomy following Denver's first preseason game. After starting the first three regular-season games Ball suffered a groin injury in Week 5. Upon returning in Week 11, Ball re-aggravated the injury on just his fourth snap of the game.

Fantasy Impact:

C.J. Anderson looks like he's emerged as the Broncos lead back. With Ronnie Hillman expected back soon, he would likely get RB2 work.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne had one of the worst games of his career last week, catching just one pass for five yards and dropping three balls.

After the game it was revealed that the veteran has been dealing with torn triceps. While it's been suggested that Wayne rest until the playoffs and allow the younger guns to carry the load, the veteran said Friday the injury wasn't affecting his play.

"If I'm out there playing, I'm good," he said, per the Indy Star.

When Wayne suits up on Sunday it will mark his 209th game as an Indianapolis Colt, breaking Peyton Manning's franchise record. The receiver's streak of 82 straight games with at least three catches came to an end last week, but his consecutive games with at least one reception remains alive.

Fantasy Impact:

With Wayne banged up, popular wire pickup Donte Moncrief could see a little more work. However it sounds like Wayne is going to play as a win would clinch the division for the Colts, according to the story.

Falcons Beat: Julio Jones 'can barely run'

Saturday, December 13, 2014, 11:08am

D. Orlando Ledbetter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Falcons beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter answered a question about Falcons WR Julio Jones on Twitter, saying Jones would be a decoy and he can barely run.

Fantasy Impact:

While Jones could very well come down to a game-time call, it seems he'd be limited in Week 15 even if he's active. Owners may want to consider other options here even if Jones suits up. Harry Douglas could end up getting more snaps even if Jones is active.

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.
