NFL Recent Player News
|12/14/2018||Matthew Stafford, Det, QB|
|Stafford is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo after being limited by a sore back for a second straight week.
Analysis: Stafford also got a questionable tag for last week's game at Arizona but played through it, much like he's expected to on Sunday. The veteran quarterback hasn't missed a start since 2010.
|12/14/2018||Martavis Bryant, Oak, WR|
|Bryant has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for another substance abuse infraction. A statement issued by the league said the troubled wide receiver violated the terms of his conditional reinstatement in April 2017.
Analysis: It's the third time in Bryant's five-year career that he's been suspended for failing a drug test. He sat out the entire 2016 season on the previous occasion. A free agent this offseason, the soon-to-be 27-year-old likely won't have many takers on the open market.
|12/14/2018||Marcus Mariota, Ten, QB|
|Mariota was limited in Friday's practice by an abdominal issue, though he's fully expected to start Sunday against the Giants.
Analysis: Mariota's injury doesn't appear to be anything worrisome. The inconsistent quarterback had put up two straight games of at least 282 passing yards and two touchdowns entering last week's matchup with Jacksonville, a game in which he didn't throw much as Tennessee rode Derrick Henry to a blowout win.
|12/14/2018||Dante Pettis, SF, WR|
|Pettis was added to the Thursday injury report with a foot issue and is questionable for this weekend's game against Seattle.
Analysis: While Pettis' overall numbers aren't impressive, the rookie's 19.1 yards per catch average makes him a tempting deep threat capable of a productive fantasy week on a single play.
|12/14/2018||Marquise Goodwin, SF, WR|
|Goodwin is dealing with a calf issue and is listed as questionable headed into this weekend.
Analysis: Goodwin missed some time due to a personal matter and only played 24 snaps in his Week 14 return to the lineup. This latest injury makes him an even less reliable fantasy option.
|12/14/2018||Chris Ivory, Buf, RB|
|Ivory is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions with a shoulder injury.
Analysis: If Ivory is able to play, he could get a fairly large workload with LeSean McCoy's status in doubt due to a hamstring issue.
|12/14/2018||Ito Smith, Atl, RB|
|Smith is dealing with a knee issue but will play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Smith tied season highs in carries and yards last weekend in Green Bay and seems like he's getting a decent workload down the stretch for the Falcons.
|12/14/2018||Chris Thompson, Was, RB|
|Thompson is questionable to play Sunday at Jacksonville with an illness.
Analysis: Thompson only received three carries last week, so he's an iffy fantasy option even if healthy.
