|11/28/2015||Harrison Smith, Min, S|
|Smith has been downgraded and is now listed as out for the Atlanta Falcons game because of a knee injury.
Analysis: Smith was listed as questionable on Friday, but the team said on Saturday that he will be scratched. Smith was injured last week against Green Bay. He missed the first two practices of the week, but was able to do some work on Friday, giving the Vikings (7-3) some hope that he could be ready to face the Falcons in Atlanta. Smith leads the Vikings with 54 tackles this season.
|11/28/2015||Darqueze Dennard, Cin, CB|
|Dennard was placed on a season-ending injury list with a separated shoulder on Friday.
Analysis: Dennard was hurt during a 34-31 loss at Arizona on Sunday night. He was a backup most of the season, but started against the Cardinals because Adam "Pacman" Jones had an injured foot. Dennard had one interception and 16 tackles in 10 games.
|11/27/2015||Evan Mathis, Den, G|
|Mathis is questionable for Sunday night's game against New England.

|Spain will make his first career start Sunday for the Titans against the Oakland Raiders at left guard.

|Jeffery caught seven passes for 90 yards in rainy conditions on Thursday in Green Bay, though he was kept out of the end zone for the third straight game.
Analysis: He caught a Jay Cutler pass while falling out of the end zone, but he could not get his second foot down in bounds. Another ball thrown his way for a potential score zipped threw his hands on a diving attempt.
|11/27/2015||Jeremy Langford, Chi, RB|
|Langford was impacted by Matt Forte's return on Thursday, but he still finished with 48 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.
Analysis: He figures to remain a part of Chicago's offense the rest of the way, though he will likely split carries with Forte.
|11/27/2015||Matt Forte, Chi, RB|
|Forte finished with 44 rushing yards on 15 carries against Green Bay on Thursday in his return from a knee injury.
Analysis: He was mostly ineffective in his return after missing Chicago's previous three games.

|11/27/2015||Randall Cobb, GB, WR|
|Cobb had six receptions for 74 yards in the Packers' 17-13 loss to Chicago on Thanksgiving.

|11/27/2015||Eddie Lacy, GB, RB|
|Lacy ran for 105 yards on 17 carries while adding four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 17-13 loss to Chicago on Thanksgiving.
Analysis: Lacy got the start after losing the starting job to James Starks due to a lack of production and a groin injury. His performance against the Bears is very encouraging for fantasy owners.
