As expected, Mattison (ankle) will rest along with starting RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder, chest). The Vikings will likely limit other starters’ reps today since they are locked into their playoff seed. Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah will head the backfield, with Abdullah likely to get the majority of the work after Boone was benched for him last week. Abdullah wound up playing 59% of the snaps, while Boone played just 33%. Both are in play for tournaments given their cheap price tags and projected low ownership.
Julian Edelman continues to play through his injury and was never in any real danger of missing today’s contest. He will continue to lead the Patriots’ receiving corps in a game they must win to secure a first-round bye.
Michel, who popped up on the injury report late in the week with an illness, is playing today. The Patriots are heavy 16-point favorites at home against the Dolphins, who have one of the worst rush defenses in the league. Michel makes for a great tournament pairing with the Patriots DST as the team will try to secure a first-round bye for the playoffs.
As expected, Anderson will play today. Since the Bills are locked into their playoff seeding, starters will likely be pulled early, meaning the Jets’ offense may operate against backups for a significant portion of today’s game. He is a viable pairing with Sam Darnold for tournaments given their upside vs. the Bills’ second-stringers.
As expected, Thomas (hamstring, knee) will miss the season-finale. Vyncent Smith will slide into three-receiver sets alongside Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder. Since the Bills are locked into their playoff seeding, starters will likely be pulled early, meaning the Jets’ offense will operate against backups for a significant portion of today’s game. All three receivers are viable pairings with Sam Darnold for tournaments given their upside and cheap price tags across the industry against potential second-stringers.
Browns TE David Njoku is Active Today After Being a Healthy Scratch the Previous Two Games
Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. is Active Today Vs. the Bengals
The Bills are resting starters today as they have nothing to gain from winning today. Devin Singletary, Dawson Knox, John Brown, and Cole Beasly are inactive.
Unsurprisingly, Andrews (Ankle) and Brown (Illness) will sit, along with Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram. The Ravens are locked into the #1 seed in the AFC, so they have no motivation to beat the Steelers. Hayden Hurst, Nick Boyle, Miles Boykin, and Seth Roberts should be the primary beneficiaries of Andrews and Brown being inactive today.
The Houston Texans are expected to rest at least some starters, including Watson and Hopkins, against the Titans. A.J. McCarron will step in for Watson, while Kenny Stills (questionable), Keke Coutee, and DeAndre Carter should see the vast majority of the snaps in three-receiver sets. All make for viable tournament options due to their dirt-cheap price tags on all sites, allowing for salary to jam in studs like CMC, Julio Jones, and Travis Kelce. Expect Derrick Henry’s ownership to rise and for the Titans DST to become very chalky throughout the industry.
