Colts WR Donte Moncrief (hamstring) took full practice reps again Friday. Moncrief will likely make his return this week. He hasn’t cleared 70 yards all year, but is always a threat to find the end zone.

Raiders OC: 'We need to make up for lost ground' with WR Amari Cooper

ESPN - [Full Article]

Raiders OC Bill Musgrave on Amari Cooper's quiet stretch:

“A couple plays were designed to go to Amari and they happened to be completions to someone else due to the coverage,” Musgrave said. “That’s one thing we want to do each and every week is feature our premier guys and get [Cooper] his touches.

“So, we need to make up for lost ground there.”

Paging the Indianapolis Colts and their 27th-ranked pass defense.

Fantasy Impact:

It's hard to get excited about a receiver who has 59 total yards on 13 targets over the last two weeks, but it sounds like Musgrave realizes that they need to get him the ball.

Vikes WR Adam Thielen says he'll play Week 16

Tuesday, December 20, 2016, 1:25pm

ESPN 1500 - [Full Article]

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen took a hit on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts that forced him to leave the game. He was in concussion protocol then later announced as having a neck injury.

Thielen said Tuesday that he does not have lasting effects from the shot and he will practice and expects to be back in the lineup against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

Thielen has worked his way up to being the Vikings’ No. 2 receiver behind Stefon Diggs, grabbing 56 catches for 758 yards.

Vikes RB Adrian Peterson officially activated

Saturday, December 17, 2016, 2:41pm

Star Tribune - [Full Article]

Adrian Peterson is back on the active roster, making him immediately available to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Vikings announced Peterson’s status upgrade Saturday. Defensive tackle Toby Johnson was waived to make room for Peterson.

Related players: Jerick McKinnon, Matt Asiata

Fantasy Impact:

Peterson was aiming for a return Dec. 24 against the Green Bay Packers, but after three practices this week, he declared he was “ready to roll.” The story said he plans to wear a knee brace, but it isn’t clear how much Peterson will play. We don't think Peterson is likely to jump into a full workload, but it's hard to imagine the team not using him in the red zone which makes him an upgrade over any of their other options at RB.

Friday, December 16, 2016, 6:08pm

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder, right elbow) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. No worries here. Luck will be out there for a tough matchup against the Vikings. His offensive line is missing three starters, so pass protection may be an issue.

Friday, December 16, 2016, 6:08pm

Vikings RB Matt Asiata (ankle, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking full reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 15. Asiata would normally be a Sneaky Start in a good matchup against the Colts, but the apparent return of Adrian Peterson and the ankle injury makes him a far less attractive play.
