Packers hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

Packers News - [Full Article]

Mike McCarthy’s search to fill his vacant defensive coordinator’s job ended suddenly after nine days when the Green Bay Packers coach chose former Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine to succeed Dom Capers.

Pettine, 51, was out of football in 2016 after compiling a 10-22 record in two seasons as coach of the Cleveland Browns and spent this past season as a defensive consultant with the Seattle Seahawks.

McCarthy had interest in Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, but it appears Fangio is going to stick with the Bears. He also asked for permission to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, but never got to interview him. Bradley agreed to return to the Chargers Tuesday night.

Along the way to his head-coaching job, Pettine was part of some of the NFL’s top defenses. From ’09-12, the Jets ranked 1st, 3rd, 5th and 8th in overall defense. Ryan received most of the credit for the Jets’ great defenses, but a Cleveland.com story said that Ryan turned over much of the responsibility of the defense to Pettine after the 2009 season.

In 2013, after Pettine went to Buffalo, the Bills ranked 10th in defense.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story mentioned, Pettine's defenses in New York and Buffalo all ranked top 10 in yards allowed, though they were 20th in points allowed in three straight seasons (two in New York and one in Buffalo). There may be some growing pains along the way, but this looks like a good hire for Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy may not be 100% but he'll be out there against the Jaguars.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Benjamin should be able to play through the injury again this week.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills RB Mike Tolbert (not injury related) missed practice Friday.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 18. McCoy is trending the right way and should be able to play against the Jaguars, even though he won’t be near 100 percent. If he’s unable to play, then Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy would try to pick up the slack.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (knee, out) missed practice again Thursday and is out for Week 18. With Murray out look for Derrick Henry to carry the load against the Chiefs, who have given up 119 rushing yards and 1.0 rushing touchdown per game this year. Last week, Henry carried the ball 28 times for 51 yards against the Jaguars, but scored on a 66-yard touchdown reception to post a nice fantasy line.

Bills QB Joe Webb (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 18.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps all week. Bortles will be fine to face the Bills. After scoring 11 touchdowns (9 passing, 2 rushing) in his previous five games, Bortles wasn’t good—158 passing yards, 2 interceptions—against the Titans in a Week 17 game that the Jaguars were trying to win.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Clay should be able to play through the knee injury again this week. Unfortunately, the Jaguars are No. 1 in TE aFPA this season.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills WR Deonte Thompson (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 18.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) listed as questionable for Wild Card weekend

Friday, January 5, 2018, 2:17pm

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

Rapoport tweeted that the Bills listed McCoy as questionable for the team's Wild Card matchup versus the Jaguars but the expectation is that he will play.

Fantasy Impact:

If McCoy is healthy enough to suit up you'll want to insert him into your starting lineup. The Jaguars are ranked 20th in aFPA vs. RBs and we have McCoy ranked as a top-eight RB across the board. If McCoy were to be ruled out before the game starts, look for Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy to form a running back committee.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) heading toward game-time call

Tuesday, January 2, 2018, 1:05pm

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Bills’ RB LeSean McCoy, nursing a sprained ankle, is expected to be a “game-time decision” and a “close call” for Sunday’s playoff game against Jacksonville, according to a source.

Related players: Mike Tolbert, Marcus Murphy, Taiwan Jones

Fantasy Impact:

Obviously not having McCoy would really hurt the chances of the Bills advancing in this game. If he can't go, Tolbert, Murphy and Jones would likely share the workload. It sounds like even if McCoy plays he won't be at full strength.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) hopes to play

Monday, January 1, 2018, 9:27am

NFL.com - [Full Article]

LeSean McCoy will battle to get ready for the Buffalo Bills first playoff game of since Jan. 8, 2000.

The running back was carted off in the third quarter of the Week 17 win over the Miami Dolphins with a sprained ankle.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that McCoy has a chance to play in Sunday's playoff game, but would likely be gimpy and not be 100 percent if he's able to give it a go.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say McCoy will get round-the-clock treatment on the ankle in hopes to get on the field Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville. Rapoport noted that playing in the Sunday game -- as opposed to the Saturday matchup -- helps McCoy's chances of returning for the postseason.
