Holtzman 'would be surprised' if West plays 11-29-2015
Charcandrick West RB KC
ESPN's Bob Holtzman "would be surprised" if Charcandrick West (hamstring, questionable) plays Sunday against the Bills.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport deemed West a "long-shot" after previously calling him a game-time decision. Meanwhile ESPN's Adam Schefter reported hours ago that West wouldn't be on the field today. All signs point to West sitting this one out. The Chiefs should be in good hands with power back Spencer Ware as the starter. Rapsheet noted that West's hamstring has "improved rapidly," which suggests he could be back next week against the Raiders.
Hakeem Nicks expected to be active Sunday 11-29-2015
Hakeem Nicks WR NYG
Hakeem Nicks is expected to be active Sunday against the Redskins.

Jordan Raanan on Twitter
The Giants signed Nicks during the bye week. With Victor Cruz done for the year and Larry Donnell also facing a lengthy absence, Nicks will have a chance to carve a role for himself in the passing game. Of course, there's a reason he went two months without a job after getting cut by the Titans at the end of training camp. It's extremely unlikely that Nicks will emerge as a fantasy option at any point this year.
Rapsheet: Spencer Ware will start Sunday 11-29-2015
Spencer Ware RB KC
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Spencer Ware will start Sunday against the Bills.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter
According to Rapoport, Charcandrick West (hamstring, questionable) is a "long-shot" to play, though he's still pushing to get on the field. Knile Davis will be active Sunday after being a healthy scratch the last two games. Ware was dominant in the second half of last week's win over San Diego and the Chiefs might look to run more than usual with rain in the forecast. He's a solid RB2.
Rams won't be punished for concussion debacle 11-29-2015
Case Keenum QB STL
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Rams will not be penalized for mishandling Case Keenum's concussion last week against the Ravens.

Adam Schefter on Twitter
Keenum was somehow cleared to continue after taking a crushing blow from Timmy Jernigan late in the fourth quarter. He fumbled on the next play. The league responded by getting all 32 teams on the phone for a mandatory conference call on Tuesday night to go over player safety. It's unclear why the Rams are getting a free pass here, but it's safe to say there will be consequences the next time a team fails to diagnose an obvious concussion like the one Keenum suffered last week.
Conflicting reports on Charcandrick's status 11-29-2015
Charcandrick West RB KC
There have been conflicting reports on Charcandrick West's status for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Chiefs had already ruled him out while NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said West's hamstring is "rapidly improving" and that Kansas City considers him a game-time decision. Either way, it looks like West is on the doubtful side of questionable. Spencer Ware got all the first-team reps at practice this week and will get the start when and if West is officially ruled out.
Report: Travis Kelce (ankle) good to go Sunday 11-29-2015
Travis Kelce TE KC
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Travis Kelce (ankle, questionable) will play Sunday against the Bills.

Adam Schefter on Twitter
The Chiefs slapped Kelce with the questionable tag after he suffered a minor ankle injury at Friday's practice. He'll play through the pain Sunday in a game featuring two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Kelce has really only had one monster fantasy game this year, but his steady workload has allowed him to maintain his place as an upper echelon TE1.
Schefter: Michael Floyd expected to suit up 11-29-2015
Michael Floyd WR ARZ
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Floyd (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers.

Adam Schefter on Twitter
For the first time in a few weeks, Carson Palmer will have his full complement of weapons. Floyd has scored a touchdown in four straight games with at least 50 yards in each of those contests. He'll have to compete with Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown for targets but Floyd still makes sense as a WR3.
Rishard Matthews (illness) expected to suit up 11-29-2015
Rishard Matthews WR MIA
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Rishard Matthews (illness, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets.

Adam Schefter on Twitter
Matthews showed up on the injury report late in the week after coming down with an illness. His status was never in real danger. He's coming off a dismal game against the Cowboys in Week 11 but still leads the Dolphins with 662 receiving yards and four touchdowns this year. Pencil Matthews in as a back-end WR3.
Jarvis Landry (knee) expected to play against Jets 11-29-2015
Jarvis Landry WR MIA
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jarvis Landry (knee, questionable) is expected to play Sunday against the Jets.

So is teammate Rishard Matthews (illness). Ryan Tannehill should be able to exploit the Jets' secondary with Marcus Williams filling in for Darrelle Revis (concussion). Landry will be on the WR2/3 borderline for Sunday's divisional matchup.
