Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 17. West should be able to play against the Broncos and may see a big workload if the team rests Kareem Hunt.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Lynch will get the start this week.

After missing practice all week, Sanders has been ruled out for the Broncos' season finale versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Fellow WR Cody Latimer will also miss the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Demaryius Thomas will be the No. 1 WR for Denver this week in a great matchup, according to our aFPA metric—the Chiefs rank 27th vs. WRs in aFPA. We have Thomas ranked as a top-16 WR across the board. Bennie Fowler should also see an uptick in targets.

Broncos will start Paxton Lynch (ankle) at QB if ready

And as the football week begins Tuesday, the Broncos will again face a decision regarding whether Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback.

Lynch, who is recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 12 against the Raiders, practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Broncos’ game in Washington. He was a full participant Friday, but Osweiler started and played the entirety of Sunday’s contest.

Head Coach Vance Joseph noted earlier in the week that Lynch’s health would play a key role in determining whether he would start vs. Washington.

Following Sunday’s game, Joseph reiterated that point.

“Our goal is to see him play, so absolutely,” Joseph said. “If he’s ready to go next week, he will probably play for us.”

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch and Osweiler actually split reps leading up to the Washington game. With lots of QB questions heading into next season, the Broncos would clearly like to see more of Lynch.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. Beat writer Mike Klis said that Sanders is on the “doubtful side of questionable” for Week 16. If he’s out, Cody Latimer should see a bump in targets.

Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 16. Perine looks very iffy to play after injuring his groin in practice this week. LeShun Daniels was placed on injured reserve, so Kapri Bibbs could see a lot of touches in a bad matchup against the Broncos.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) 'sore' after Friday practice

Friday, December 22, 2017, 2:05pm

Mike Klis - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Mike Klis said Sanders was 'sore' after practice on Thursday and Friday, and that he is looking doubtful to play versus Washington this week.

Fantasy Impact:

If Sanders misses this week's game that would leave Demaryius Thomas as the top receiving option in the Broncos' passing game, with Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler as secondary options. We have Thomas ranked as a top-26 WR across the board this week. Check back Sunday for an update to our rankings in the event Sanders is ruled out.

Thursday, December 21, 2017, 6:12pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Sanders may not be able to play against the Redskins.

Thursday, December 21, 2017, 6:12pm

Broncos WR Cody Latimer (thigh) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Latimer could see extra usage if Emmanuel Sanders can’t play.
