Kristian Fulton, CB, TEN: Groin -- Questionable

Sunday 1 p.m. ET games

Tyler Huntley, QB, BAL: Shoulder -- Inactive
Impact: Anthony Brown will get the call with Huntley unable to go.

J.K. Dobbins, RB, BAL: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Dobbins will be rested ahead of next week's playoff game. Will Gus Edwards be the guy?

Jonnu Smith, TE, NE: Concussion -- Inactive
Impact: Hunter Henry's chances at a big fantasy day just increased.

Taysom Hill, TE, NO: Back -- Active
Impact: Given his use all over the field for this offense, he should get a lot of touches.

Juwan Johnson, TE, NO: Quad -- Active
Impact: He practiced in a limited fashion all week, but should see some action.

Mike White, QB, NYJ: Ribs -- OUT
Impact: Joe Flacco gets the start with Zach Wilson backing him up.
