Chargers DE Joey Bosa is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after managing limited practices all week in his return from the foot injury. Even if he's active this week, the team has already said he'll play a limited role. IDP owners are probably best off sitting him for this week -- but stashing Bosa now for the stretch run.
The Cardinals have ruled S Budda Baker out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a knee injury. DT Robert Nkemdiche (calf) is questionable but missed practice Wednesday and Friday. Try not to use him even if he's active.
Washington CB Quinton Dunbar is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He's still dealing with the nerve issue in his right shin that has already cost him 3 games and limited his playing time when he tried to return for Week 9. Dunbar posted big numbers in that contest but stayed on the field for just 40% of the snaps. He's not likely to repeat that performance. You're best off leaving Dunbar out until he's all the way back. He didn't practice at all this week.
Texans LB Zach Cunningham is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington as he tries to return from the knee injury that cost him Week 9. Cunningham put in limited practices all week. We'll check his availability Sunday morning.
The Buccaneers will face the Giants on Sunday without OLB Lavonte David (MCL sprain), S Justin Evans (toe) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle). The 1st 2 are starter-level IDP options when healthy. We wouldn't bother chasing their backups. Curry hasn't been an IDP factor, but Carl Nassib has delivered recently amid Curry's inconsistent availability. Nassib has tallied 4 sacks and 6 total QB hits over the past 4 games. He's questionable for Sunday's game as well with an elbow issue but put in limited practice Thursday and a full Friday workout after sitting Wednesday. If Nassib's active Sunday, he'll be an upside option in DL2 territory.
Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah and DT Damon Harrison are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers as each deals with a shoulder injury. Both players put in limited practices all week. Ansah played through questionable tags the past 2 games. We'd bet on him being active again, but he'll need to grow his role before returning to real IDP consideration. Harrison's issue is new, but his participation in practice all week leaves us optimistic. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Detroit will definitely be without its other starting DT, A'Shawn Robinson, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury.
Ravens S Tony Jefferson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a thigh injury. After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Jefferson returned for a limited Thursday workout and then returned to full participation Friday. We'd bet on him playing but will confirm his status Sunday morning.
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing the past 2 games. He put in limited practices all week, and we'd bet on the veteran playing. He's still a risky fantasy option even if active, though. Burfict played just 53%, 84% and 63% of Cincinnati's defensive snaps in his 3 appearances so far this season. Burfict has also averaged just 6.6 total tackles per game since the start of last season. Cincinnati will remain without LB Nick Vigil (knee), and MLB Preston Brown (knee) has also been ruled out.
Chargers WR Mike Williams (groin) will play against the Broncos this weekend. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday — but then put in a full practice on Friday. Williams has played less than 50% of the offensive snaps in 2 straight games, though, so he can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups.
