11:41pmET: The holiday season caused a log jam of game recaps to be written but time is evaporating, so I consolidated the remaining games I didn't write up all into one document/article of quick notes as it pertains to people still playing Week 17...as that's the priority right now. My plan is to have that post early Saturday morning.
A Handicapping Update tomorrow and for a Week 17 Blazing Five...for whatever it is worth.
Past Sunday, next week we'll start looking at the playoffs and sleeper fantasy playoff plays (and projecting/predicting the playoffs) for those into such fantasy things.
Week 17 games will recap/analyze during next week and throughout January until we get them done, because we'll also recap the playoff games each week and analyze the upcoming week as well.
9:53pmET: Week 17 Projections Update...next update is Sunday noon+.
7:57pmET: The Chargers promoted RB Russell Hansbrough...meaning the odds of Melvin Gordon playing are below 50% now.
5:57pmET: Jason Katz's End of the Cowboys Road article posted
1:49pmET: DeMarco Murray, Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard, Aaron Jones among the early 'out for Week 17' names
Notes from the practice field...
-- Joe Mixon got in a limited practice THU, perhaps Gio Bernard isn't going to be such an obvious play...
-- E.J. Gaines may be back full for Buffalo this week
-- Cole Beasley hasn't practiced the last 2 days...perhaps, Ryan Switzer gets the shot he should have 8+ weeks ago?
-- Sanders-Latimer likely out again this week
-- Not practicing for 2 days: Adams-Jordy-Allison for Green Bay...Cobb may get 10+ targets if they let him play full, but he might go half a game. Michael Clark is a deep-sleeper.
-- Charcandrick West missed practice due to illness...no announcement made on whether he is starting or not. Akeem Hunt would be an 'all-in' play if West cannot go. He'd be the Wk17 RB I'd be most excited about -- if I knew for sure he was starting.
-- Mike Gillislee has missed last two practices but James White has been back limited practices
-- Chris Godwin has missed last 2 practices, DJax limited last 2
