Every week we will break down the notable players that are on the injury report for the current week and who could replace them.
Below we will go over the injury report for Week 16. Let’s see who makes the list this week!
Steelers @ Jets
For Pittsburgh this week all IDP stars are set to go. In New York, safety Jamal Adams (ankle) who got in limited practices this week looks like he’ll be returning to action just in time to help your IDP lineup.
Saints @ Titans
For the Saints, linebacker Kiko Alonso (quad) tried to give it a go in practice this week but was downgraded to out for Sunday. Linebacker Craig Robinson will continue taking his place. Safety Vonn Bell (knee) was also declared out for the Saints this week putting J.T. Gray in line to start since regular backup C.J. Gardner-Johnson is still dealing with a concussion. In Tennessee, cornerback Adoree’ Jackson is out again this week meaning LeShaun Sims will fill in for Jackson.
Panthers @ Colts
In Carolina, linebacker Shaq Thompson (ankle) is out this week making Jermaine Carter the next man up. For the Colts, safety Malik Hooker (hand) is questionable to play. If he can’t suit up on Sunday George Odum will start in his place.
Bengals @ Dolphins
All IDP relevant players for the Bengals will start this week. The same goes for the Dolphins.
Ravens @ Browns
The Ravens will have their full complement of IDP stars this week. As for the Browns, edge rusher Olivier Vernon (knee) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (back) are questionable this week. Bryan Cox and Eli Ankou would fill in for them, respectively if they cannot play.
Jaguars @ Falcons
All IDP relevant players for the Jaguars are good to go. The same goes for the “dirty birds” of Atlanta.
Giants @ Redskins
All IDP relevant players for the Giants are set to start on Sunday. The Redskins might be without safety Landon Collins who is questionable with an Achilles injury. If he can’t play Jeremy Reaves would take his place.
Lions @ Broncos
Both Lions and Broncos IDP stars are set to line up against Denver this week. For the Broncos, while not an injury, hybrid cornerback/safety Kareem Jackson was suspended by the NFL for PEDs. Starting in his place this week will be Trey Marshall.
Raiders @ Chargers
Both Raiders and Chargers IDP stars are good to go this week.
Cardinals @ Seahawks
All Cardinals IDP stars are set to play this week. For the Seahawks, however, safety Quandre Diggs is doubtful to play this week due to an ankle injury. Marquise Blair would fill-in for Diggs if he can’t play. Also doubtful for this week’s NFC West divisional matchup is defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (core). Starting in his place this week would be L.J. Collier if Clowney can’t suit up.
Cowboys @ Eagles
For Dallas, Leighton Vander Esch is still out with a neck injury. Joe Thomas would continue filling in for that linebacker corps. For the Eagles, Derek Barnett is questionable with an ankle injury. Should he not suit up Vinny Curry would continue taking his place.
Chiefs @ Bears
IDP starters for the Chiefs are good to go. The Bears’ Akiem Hicks (elbow) is looking like he’ll play this week.
Packers @ Vikings
For the Packers, linebacker Blake Martinez (hand/calf) was limited in practice on Friday. He can’t suit up this week Ty Summers would take his place. All IDP stars for the Vikings should be good to go on Monday night.
