12/30:Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (knee) is officially inactive for Week 17 against the Bengals. Brown was unable to convince the team in pregame warmups. It's a big loss in a must-win game for both the Steelers and fantasy owners alike. JuJu Smith-Schuster will be heavily targeted and has WR1 upside, while rookie James Washington, Ryan Switzer and Eli Rogers will also have bigger roles. Tight end Vance McDonald is a safer TE1 as well.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Baltimore Ravens wide receiver John Brown (hamstring) is active for Week 17 against the Browns. Brown was expected to play all along in a game that the Ravens need to win to secure the division crown over the Steelers. It's good news that Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward is out, but Brown hasn't been fantasy relevant with rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson under center. He's a desperation, touchdown-dependent WR4/5 in Week 17. Running back Javorius Allen is also a healthy scratch.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive in Week 17 against the Raiders despite getting in some full practices last week. It's somewhat of a surprise, but the Chiefs will elect to get Ware at least one extra week of rest for the playoffs. In his absence, Damien Williams has been great and will continue to be the workhorse back in a great matchup with Oakland. Williams will be a high-upside RB2 for Sunday.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson (illness) is active in the Week 17 finale against the Eagles. Even in a great matchup with Philly's soft secondary, Doctson isn't a very attractive WR4/flex with quarterback Josh Johnson under center. Jamison Crowder has become Johnson's favorite target, and Doctson has just three catches for 30 yards in the last two games.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion) has left the Week 17 game against the Lions and is being evaluated for a concussion. It's bad news for those that are using Rodgers with something on the line in the regular season finale in a meaningless game. He was already more of a weak QB1 going into this game without wide receivers Davante Adams (knee) and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion), who had been Rodgers' top two weapons. Rodgers had gone 3-for-5 for only 26 yards before leaving. We'd be surprised if he returns. Deshone Kizer has taken over under center.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:The Tampa Bay Buccaneers intend to bring quarterback Jameis Winston back as their starter in 2019, according to league sources. Winston was suspended for the first three games this year and was benched midseason, but they believe he's still their quarterback of the future and is still only 24 years old. Winston is due to make $20 million next year and the QB market will likely be thin in the offseason and in the draft. He enters Week 17 with 2,647 yards, 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 10 games (eight starts). His up-and-down play and frequent turnovers are what have made him more of a QB2 for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Adam Schefter

12/30:Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (chest) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Packers, while running back LeGarrette Blount (knee) is active. It leaves quarterback Matthew Stafford with a bare cupboard of playmakers in a meaningless season finale. T.J. Jones, Brandon Powell and Andy Jones will be his receivers. It's best to avoid Detroit's offense altogether in fantasy on Sunday. Blount is sharing touches with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick in the backfield and is averaging less than 3.0 yards per carry on the year. Avoid him as well.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Dallas Cowboys running back Rod Smith will officially start in the backfield in Week 17 against the Giants with the team resting Ezekiel Elliott in a game that means nothing. It will be Smith's second career start, but Darius Jackson is also expected to see a healthy workload. Smith is a good value pick as a DFS sleeper against New York to close out the season despite having only 32 carries for 92 yards (2.9 yards per carry) this season as Zeke's backup.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: DallasCowboys.com - David Helman

12/30:Green Bay Packers wide receivers Davante Adams (knee) and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) are both inactive for Week 17 against the Lions. It means that Adams will fall just short of the franchise marks for receptions and receiving yards in a single season. He was one of the more consistent WR1s in fantasy all year with a career-high 111 receptions for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns on the year. He has double-digit scores in each of the last three years and will be an elite WR1 next year. With both he and ESB out, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow will be on the outside with Randall Cobb in the slot. Kumerow is the most attractive DFS sleeper of the bunch. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers should also be downgraded in this meaningless contest.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Keke Coutee (hamstring) and running back D'Onta Foreman are both inactive for Week 17 against the Jaguars. Coutee has now missed the last five games and has played in just six games in his rookie season. Houston will hope to have him healthy for the playoffs, where he'll likely be the No. 2 behind DeAndre Hopkins with Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) done for the year. Rookie Vyncint Smith and Deandre Carter will be in on three-wide sets in the tough matchup. Carter is the more attractive sleeper play. Foreman is a healthy scratch now that Lamar Miller (ankle) is back from his one-game absence.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is officially inactive for Week 17 against the Texans, while Carlos Hyde (knee) is active. Fournette was doubtful coming in and was a huge fantasy bust in 2018. He's now become a very shaky and injury-prone RB1 heading into next season. Some combination of T.J. Yeldon, Hyde and David Williams will operate in this backfield to close out the season. It's a situation to avoid if you have anything left on the line in fantasy.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:New England Patriots wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) is inactive for Week 17 against the Jets. Patterson has been mostly a gadget player with Rex Burkhead, James White and Sony Michel forming a three-headed backfield monster behind Tom Brady. With Josh Gordon no longer with the team, it'll be Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett mainly in three-receiver sets. With tight end Rob Gronkowski looking nothing like his elite self in the passing game, Dorsett may have some deep DFS sleeper appeal.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and running back Alvin Kamara are both inactive for Week 17 against the Panthers. The Saints have already locked up home-field advantage and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, so it doesn't make sense for their studs to play in a meaningless game. Don't expect Michael Thomas or Mark Ingram to play much either, if at all. Wide receiver Ted Ginn is also inactive. Rookie wideouts Tre'Quan Smith and Keith Kirkwood should see plenty of playing time in the passing game, while Dwayne Washington could see a significant role in the backfield behind quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess is a healthy inactive for Week 17 against the Saints. With nothing on the line, the Panthers have elected to rest Funchess to close out the year. He faded for fantasy owners down the stretch, but it didn't help that quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) struggled to get him the ball because of his injury. Funchess will finish with 44 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns, a disappointment after he caught a career-high 63 passes for 840 yards and eight TDs last year. D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel will be the top receivers against New Orleans, but they have lower ceilings with rookie QB Kyle Allen likely to start.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12/30:Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson (Achilles) is officially inactive for Week 17 against the Falcons. D-Jax missed practice all week and was doubtful to begin with. He very well played his final game in Tampa last week and would prefer a change of scenery for 2019. While Jackson was disappointing outside of three 100-yard games early in the year, he did average almost 19 yards per catch on the year. He'll still be attractive as a deep threat, but the veteran will likely be no more than a boom/bust WR4/flex wherever he is playing. Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries are more attractive WR3 plays with Jackson out.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
