Gameday Injuries:  Week 16
Gameday Injuries: Week 16

This column is meant to offer our best predictions on what players will/will not play, as of 9 AM ET on Sunday. For the official active/inactive reports, please see our Latest NFL Player News.

We've reached what is a typically all-important, do-or-die Week 16 for the majority of Fantasy leagues, a slate of games where the final hierarchy in the standings is cemented and championships are won or lost. The injury report brings a mixed bag of news for Fantasy managers that still have something at stake, with one notable name at running back already ruled out and another taking a turn for the worse over the last 24 hours and trending toward not playing. Conversely, we have a pretty clean bill of health at quarterback and tight end. And, as usual, we have our fair share of 50/50 propositions as well, so with plenty of key news to cover, let's jump right into the latest as of early Sunday morning:

QUARTERBACKS 

The Giants' Daniel Jones (ankle) is off the injury report and will start Sunday's Week 16 divisional tilt against the Redskins. Jones ultimately missed only two games with the ankle injury he suffered Week 13 against the Packers, and he returns to face a Washington defense that's allowed 245.6 passing yards per game and 19.7 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in standard scoring formats. Additionally, the Redskins will likely be missing both starting cornerbacks, with Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) already ruled out and Fabian Moreau (hamstring) doubtful.
