Divisional Round Fantasy Football Practice News & Notes for Friday

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps all week. Bortles is fully expected to play against the Steelers on Sunday. He has the best matchup of any of the quarterbacks playing this weekend since Pittsburgh is No. 28 in QB aFPA.


Saints QB Taysom Hill (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 19.


Falcons QB Matt Ryan (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday after taking full practice reps Thursday. Ryan is good to go.


Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (knee) was removed from the injury report Friday after taking full practice reps Thursday. The Falcons are No. 1 in RB aFPA so this is a very tough matchup for Ajayi and the other Philadelphia running backs.


Jaguars RB Tommy Bohanon (knee) took full practice reps again Friday.


Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 19. Burkhead is making progress but was still favoring his bad leg as recently as Wednesday. His health will determine what sort of workload he sees on Saturday. Dion Lewis is the safest Patriot running back to play this week.


Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) took limited practice reps Thursday. Freeman is going to play but he has a very tough matchup against the Eagles (No. 2 in RB aFPA).


Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 19. Gillislee may play, but if Rex Burkhead and James White are active, he may be inactive for the game.


Vikings RB C.J. Ham (neck) took full practice reps all week.


Titans RB DeMarco Murray (knee, out) is out for Week 19. Derrick Henry should see another big workload this week against the Patriots. New England is No. 10 in RB aFPA but has struggled against the run this year.
