Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) said Sunday, Dec. 8, that his ankle bothered him during the Week 14 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was forced to leave the game for treatment in the locker room, but he was able to return. "I definitely couldn't push off of it as much as I wanted to," Lacy said. "I could feel it whenever I ran and, if I was healthy, I could have broken a couple of tackles. But I couldn't because I couldn't push off."

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) was able to play 41 snaps in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, and he posted three catches for 55 yards. Holmes said Sunday, Dec. 8, that he felt fine.
FANTASY TIP: Despite the fact he looked healthier than perhaps at any point this year, he is still too risky to rely upon in most fantasy leagues at this important juncture of the season.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (knee) was a late inactive for the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, and he has been bothered by knee swelling for several weeks, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "The young man has been competing his tail off, but he's just not himself," Ryan said. "He's not able to burst out of cuts. Quite honestly, as much as he wants it, it's best for us to make the decision to deactivate him this week."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David recorded nine tackles (eight solo) with a sack, two tackles for loss and a pair of interceptions. David has at least one interception in each of his past three games, with four total during the span.
FANTASY TIP: David has emerged as a must-start fantasy option in leagues which use individual defensive players (IDP).
