Christmas Eve Player News

Maurice Jones-Drew (knee) will not be active for Sunday’s game at home against the Redskins. Rashad Jennings will draw the start is is a high end flex play with RB2 upside. Mike Sims-Walker (ankle) will not start Sunday but will play. He is likely to only play about half of the snaps as his ankle is still not 100% healed.

Andre Johnson (ankle) is still listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Broncos but some sources believe there is a “real” chance he sits. If he’s out Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter get a sizable boost in value.

Knowshon Moreno (ribs) has been able to practice Thursday and Friday and has a good chance to play on Sunday, but is still listed as questionable.

Joseph Addai (neck/Shoulder) is listed as probable after practicing fully the last few days. It looks like he’ll finally return in Oakland after a 2 month lay off.

Adrian Peterson (knee/thigh) is likely to give it a go Sunday in Philly according to head coach Leslie Frazier.

Chad OchoCinco (ankle) who was looking like he’d play albeit only about half the snaps, now appears to be likely to sit as coach Marvin Lewis stated Friday that Ocho is “iffy” to play Week 16 against the Chargers. Get him out of your lineups if for some reason he was still there.

Peyton Hillis (knee) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day Friday and is listed as probable. According to most reports it looks like he’ll go Sunday at home vs. the Ravens.

Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is going to start barring a major setback. Santonio Holmes (toe) is going to play Sunday in Chicago as well but if Sanchez doesn’t go, its a big hit to Holmes value.

Antonio Gates (toe) is listed as out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals, and WR Malcom Floyd (hamstrings) is listed as doubtful and is very unlikely to play.

Lions QB Shaun Hill (finger) is expected to regain the starting job Sunday in Miami. This gives a slight boost in value to the Lions offensive players even though Drew Stanton did a solid job in his absense.

Chris Ivory (hamstring) was limited in practice today but we should know his status sometime Saturday as to whether he will play or Pierre Thomas/Julius Jones will carry the load.

Anthony Dixon (ankle) has been hobbling around practice the last few days and isn’t likely to see a lot of time if he is active based on sources reports. He has a solid matchup this week but it looks like Brian Westbrook will get majority of touches this week.

Mario Manningham (heel) practiced in full Friday and will start against the Packers Sunday.
