Daily Commentary 12/21 THU (6:31pmET)

Date:
December 21, 2017

6:30pmET: Colts CB Rashaan Melvin rule OUT for Saturday...all-in on Mike Wallace!!!

3:51pmET: Important Notice...

NO Weekly Projection Update today...no games tonight to worry about and usually minor changes on THU anyway. Friday after the real injury reports is the game-changer for projections. We may update the RB rankings tonight if Perine is declared out.

Most likely, the next projections update will be Friday night (9pm-midnight ET) and then again leading into Saturday games, and then again the normal Sunday stuff.

**Jason Katz's Week 15 article featuring his Dallas Cowboys faint playoff hopes is posted (home page, scroll down)

3:18pmET: Samaje Perine left practice w a groin injury. Unknown status. Kapri Bibbs would get 15+ touches against the team that was elevating him but then traded/ditched him (Denver). I'd take Bibbs for FF if starting clear of Perine over ARI RBs, Gallman...off the top of my head.

Starting to gather my MVP candidates for the 2017 season. This is just the gathering process. It's meaningless fun(?), but I'll go by division by division showing players I'm considering so far...

AFC East: Tom Brady, Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy, Rob Gronkowski

AFC South: Jalen Ramsey

AFC North: Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Justin Tucker

AFC West: Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill

NFC East: Carson Wentz, Tyron Smith, Sean Lee, Lane Johnson

NFC South: Cam Newton, Alvin Kamara, Luke Kuechly, Riley Reiff, Terron Armstead

NFC North: Case Keenum, Adam Thielen

NFC West: Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Andrew Whitworth, Russell Wilson

2:06pmET: I'm hearing from sources that Brock Osweiler will start this week and Lynch hopes to be more ready Week 17. If so, an uptick for Demaryius Thomas and a slight downgrade for the Redskins defense.

12:42pmET: Make sure you catch towards the end of this, how J-Franchise talks with his WRs/TE...

Morning Notes...

-- Greg Zuerlein out for the Rams is not only a blow to fantasy teams in the title chase, but I think it's the little edge that takes the Rams from a sleeper Super Bowl team to likely to fall short. It may also force the Rams to go for more 4th downs, etc., which should bump Jared Goff's output potential a little bit as well.

-- Trent Williams on IR is a blow to Samaje Perine and Kirk Cousins for fantasy.

-- Practice Info from Wednesday

Rashaan Melvin had his 2nd 'limited' practice...his status is huge for Mike Wallace's Week 16.

Kerwynn Williams not practicing...I'd almost guarantee he's not playing.

Adrian Amos full practice for Chicago, a great IDP DB this season is back

Vontaze Burfict did not practice, he's likely out again

No practice for Tyron Smith, David Irving, Demarcus Lawrence

Detroit's O-Line is all banged up going to face a banged up Cincy defense.

Leonard Fournette full practice...he's back.

Logan Ryan may be out as another help to the Jared Goff story for Week 16
