Rodgers not medically cleared: Holding out hope that you’ll have Aaron Rodgers available to you for the fantasy playoffs? Keep hope alive. While the Packers quarterback hasn’t been medically cleared to play from his broken collarbone, he also hasn’t yet been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers is slated to practice Wednesday, but if he doesn’t go, it will likely be Matt Flynn getting the call for yet another week. While it’ll be hard for Flynn to be as bad as he was last week, you’d have to be pretty short on options to consider starting him.
Harvin had “procedure” last week: Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin had “a little procedure” last week, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The end result is that Harvin is supposedly feeling good, but there is still no word on his prospects going forward. After making his debut in Week 12, the dynamic wideout sat out Seattle’s Week 13 win over the New Orleans Saints. Next up for the Seahawks is a tough 49ers defense. If, somehow, Harvin suits up for that one, it’s probably best for fantasy owners to leave him on their bench.
Bell improving: After suffering a scary injury on Thanksgiving night, things appear to be getting better for Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell. The rookie will still need to go through and pass his concussion tests before he will be allowed to get back on the field. If he is able to play this week, he has a fantastic matchup against the Miami Dolphins. As long as Bell is playing, he should be a quality RB2 option in Week 14.
