Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. His return to practice indicates that he’ll be able to play. He has at least 48 receiving yards and/or a touchdown in five straight games, including 5-116 on 8 targets against the Lions in Week 13 and 3-72 on 5 targets against the Steelers last week. He’ll square off with Jason McCourty, which isn’t as bad of a matchup as it might seem. Over the last three weeks, McCourty has yielded 5-66 to A.J. Green, 6-83-1 to Keenan Allen and 5-45-2 to Davante Adams.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (calf) took full practice reps again Thursday. Henry’s snaps took a hit last week—58% after two weeks with more than 71% snaps played—but his production held steady with a 4-50-1 afternoon against Washington. He’s the No. 3 tight end in the last three weeks.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday.

Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Wallace should be able to face the Browns, but we’ll see what he’s able to do on Friday. For his part, he says that he expects to play. He has at least 48 receiving yards and/or a touchdown in five straight games, including 5-116 on 8 targets against the Lions in Week 13 and 3-72 on 5 targets against the Steelers last week. He’ll square off with Jason McCourty, which isn’t as bad of a matchup as it might seem. Over the last three weeks, McCourty has yielded 5-66 to A.J. Green, 6-83-1 to Keenan Allen and 5-45-2 to Davante Adams.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (calf) practiced fully Wednesday. Henry’s snaps took a hit last week—58% after two weeks with more than 71% snaps played—but his production held steady with a 4-50-1 afternoon against Washington. He’s the No. 3 tight end in the last three weeks.

Ravens WR Mike Wallace (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Wallace is probably getting a maintenance day. He has at least 48 receiving yards and/or a touchdown in five straight games, including 5-116 on 8 targets against the Lions in Week 13 and 3-72 on 5 targets against the Steelers last week. He’ll square off with Jason McCourty, which isn’t as bad of a matchup as it might seem. Over the last three weeks, McCourty has yielded 5-66 to A.J. Green, 6-83-1 to Keenan Allen and 5-45-2 to Davante Adams.

Chargers third-string running back Andre Williams broke a wrist on the final play of Sunday’s victory over Washington and will miss the rest of the season, coach Anthony Lynn said Monday.

Williams will undergo surgery.

While Williams played only five offensive snaps this season, he was a core special teams player with 95 special-teams snaps.

Fantasy Impact:

That means Branden Oliver, who hasn’t played since Oct. 29, likely takes over Williams’ snaps on special teams. Oliver has played 68 offensive snaps and 15 special teams snaps this season.

Pats WR Chris Hogan expected to play

NBC Sports Boston - [Full Article]

Chris Hogan made his way to South Florida with the Patriots on Sunday. And not to watch.

Tom Brady and the Patriots offense have gone without Hogan since he injured his shoulder late in a Week 8 win over the Chargers. It's unclear how much he'll play, but after four practices this week in Foxboro, he's going to give it a go Monday night against the Dolphins.

Related players: Phillip Dorsett, Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola

Fantasy Impact:

Hogan appears to be a risky fantasy play, though. Obviously we'll know his official status about an hour or so before the game starts, but it looks like he's going to go. Hogan could also give the offense a huge boost with TE Rob Gronkowski suspended. His return potentially hurts the snap count for Dorsett who had taken over the WR2 spot at least in terms of snap counts.

Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) took full practice reps all week. Njoku caught 4 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers last week, and they were No. 1 in TE aFPA. It was the fifth time in the last seven games he's seen at least 5 targets and he played 54% or more of the snaps for the third time in the last four games after not clearing that mark at all in his first eight games. The Packers have been tough on tight ends this season, but they gave up two touchdowns to Cameron Brate in Week 13.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday.

Friday, December 8, 2017, 6:33pm

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14. If the rookie is able to return he’d put a dent in the upside of both Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin.

Washington TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) OUT for Week 14

Friday, December 8, 2017, 3:59pm

Washington Twitter Account - [Full Article]

Surprise, surprise... Washington TE Jordan Reed will miss the team's Week 14 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. This will be Reed's sixth straight missed game.

Fantasy Impact:

As usual, Vernon Davis will assume the No. 1 TE role in Washington. In the first three games Reed missed, Davis was targeted a combined 26 times, catching 16 passes for 179 yards. In the last two games, he's totaled only 2 catches for 15 yards, with all that production coming last week versus the Cowboys.

In Week 14, we have Davis ranked as a high-end TE2 option in a tough matchup versus the Chargers, who are ranked eighth in aFPA vs. TEs. You might want to look elsewhere for streaming TE help.
