Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 20. Green is trending the right direction, though he hasn’t played in a while and may see limited snaps if he does suit up. His return would provide a boost to the Steeler passing game.

WGR 550 - [Full Article]

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins underwent a second foot surgery earlier this month, performed by specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, and is expected to be ready for training camp, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Impact:

Watkins had three usable fantasy lines in his last six games, posting 3-80 against the Jagaurs, 4-54-1 against the Steelers and 7-154-1 against the Dolphins. He had a total of 79 yards in the other three games. His fantasy value will be a hot topic heading into the 2017 season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy described WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) as practicing yesterday more than anticipated. Sounds relatively optimistic.

Related players: Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis

Jim Irsay - [Full Article]

Andrew recovering from successful outpatient surgery to fix right shoulder injury that had lingered since 2015. Will be ready for season!

Fantasy Impact:

This doesn't sound too alarming. Luck should have plenty of time to get ready for the season, though he could miss OTAs and/or minicamp while in recovery.

Jaguars name Nathaniel Hackett offensive coordinator

Wednesday, January 18, 2017, 7:06pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Jaguars name Nathaniel Hackett the offensive coordinator.

Fantasy Impact:

Hackett was promoted to OC in Week 9, and the offense actually got worse on a points per drive basis (1.76 before/1.56 after) and in YPA (6.62/5.86). The two noticeable differences were that the Jaguars had more rushing attempts (19.1/28.7) and Blake Bortles' interceptions (1.29/.78) dropped to a respectable level. However, his passing yardage (272/223) and touchdowns (1.71/1.33) were down.

Texans promote Mike Vrabel to DC, retain Romeo Crennel

Wednesday, January 18, 2017, 9:45am

Albert Breer - [Full Article]

Per sources, the Texans are promoting LBs coach Mike Vrabel to defensive coordinator. Romeo Crennel expected to stay, likely as ass't HC.

Fantasy Impact:

In the last two seasons, Houston's defense has ranked in the top 11 in both yards and points allowed, and last year it gave up the fewest yards in the league, and that was without J.J. Watt in the fold. Both coaches have been promoted and it's not entirely clear who will be running the defense, though Vrabel's job title indicates that he's in charge.

Texans 'part ways' with OC George Godsey

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Coach Bill O'Brien is staying in Houston for the 2017 season. The same can't be said for offensive coordinator George Godsey.

The Texans and Godsey have mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bill O'Brien has been calling the plays most of the year. The Texans were 29th in points scored and in yards gained, yet still managed to win the AFC South.
