Friday walkthrough: Week 14

Team-by-team review of any key fantasy player and their prospects for playing based on this week’s practice activity and team statements. Only those players listed on the team’s final official injury report will be addressed unless the situation warrants.

PLEASE NOTE: The NFL releases their final official injury report late on Friday (after 4:00pm ET) and teams on the west coast often report their injuries late and are not included.

This week’s key game-time decisions: QB Matthew Stafford (DET), QB Tyrod Taylor (BUF), WR Amari Cooper (OAK), TE Zach Ertz (PHI)

ARIZONA
RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was held out of practice all week and has been ruled out. WR John Brown (toe) has been ruled out again this week. WR J.J. Nelson (knee) was limited all week in practice and is questionable to play.

ATLANTA – Played Thursday Night
No injuries of fantasy note.

QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) put in a couple of limited sessions this week and is a game-time decision. RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring) returned to full practices this week and is not on the team’s final injury report.
