Sunday morning updates -- Week 17

Greetings, Fools. Well, it's "the Sunday after" and that should mean you're not playing for anything more than perhaps a fun, high-scorer-takes-all type of Week 17 contest. That's what we're doing in my two leagues, where we have $25 and roughly $200 on the line this week.

So, whaddya say we go get it?

As usual, there's a long list of players out either due to injury or because their teams won't be risking their health in meaningless contests. Here are just a few of the guys you won't see in uniform today: Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck, Marcus Mariota, Marshawn Lynch, LeSean McCoy, T.J. Yeldon, Matt Jones, Alshon Jeffery, Dez Bryant, Julian Edelman and Marques Colston.

As I pretty much predicted, the Rams will not be risking Todd Gurley's health in today's meaningless game. Tre Mason will get the start, and could be a one-week wonder.

Bilal Powell will not be doing his thing for the Jets. The backfield is all in Chris Ivory's hands against the Bills.

Looks like Matt Forte is suiting up today, but I'm still not starting him. Jeremy Langford is a better option.

The Dolphins have placed Rishard Matthews on I.R.

Josh Freeman is expected to get the start at QB for the Colts. Though Freeman is no slouch, he hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since Week 7 of the 2013 season. Keep T.Y. Hilton and every Colt not named Gore on your bench.

Martavis Bryant is expected to shake off this week's illness and play in Pittsburgh's important tilt with the Browns.

Michael Floyd (knee) will join his fellow wideouts in Arizona's meaningful finale with the Seahawks.

And Danny Amendola looked fine in warmups and will play for the Pats today.

That's it for now, Fools. Enjoy the last week of the regular season. I'll have my Biro's Heroes & Zeros Awards ready for you tomorrow.

Inactives and other late-breaking news coming via Twitter shortly.
