Carolina at Minnesota
Charles Johnson hasn't practiced since Wednesday but made the trip to Minnesota and could play. If Johnson cannot go, Mario Addison and Kony Ealy would see more snaps. Star Lotulelei is doubtful but could return next week.
Sharrif Floyd managed just a limited Friday practice this week after not playing last week. He's a game time decision once again. The Vikings are otherwise healthy. The matchup should be favorable for Brian Robison should you need a high variance play in sack-heavy leagues.
Cincinnati at Tampa Bay
Vontaze Burfict still hasn't practiced since knee surgery after Week 8. He'll again be replaced by Vinny Rey today. Margus Hunt is also still out with an ankle injury but Will Clarke has yet to see an increase in snaps.
Lavonte David had a limited Friday practice and is again listed questionable. He tweaked his hamstring strain late last week. David told reporters he was confident he could play today. Consider him a game time decision, however. Danny Lansanah moved to weak side linebacker last week and played every down. That's the likely plan again today if David cannot go. Michael Johnson draws a tough matchup today, but Jacquies Smith should still be safe to use as the Bengals are fighting multiple injuries at right tackle.
Cleveland at Buffalo
Karlos Dansby is out. Craig Robertson played every down for him last week, with Chris Kirksey playing a mostly base defensive role only. There were a few snaps for Tank Carder, but the Browns to go dime against the Falcons. That may not be possible with Tashaun Gipson out with a knee injury. I'm not sure we can fully trust Kirksey today, and the coaches haven't been specific on their plans, but the door is open for full time duty for Kirksey now.
The Bills are healthy. Jerry Hughes has an unfavorable matchup against Joe Thomas today, making him a risky bet even at home as hot as he's been. Consider other options today if you have them.
