Friday walkthrough: Week 17

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: RB Melvin Gordon (LAC)

ARIZONA
WR John Brown (toe) rested Wednesday but returned to practice Thursday and is not on the team’s final injury report. RB Kerwynn Williams (quadriceps, ribs, back) was limited all week and is questionable but appears on track to play.
