Week 15 NFL Injury Report: Fantasy Football Implications

We break down the final injury report for week 15 of the 2011 NFL season. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams.

Week 15 of the 2011 NFL season gets back underway on Sunday following Thursday's Falcons-Jaguars game. Many of the more significant injury situations have been resolved, but there are still some question marks. Fantasy football playoffs are underway, which means you need to be on top of all the game-time decisions.

Kevin Smith is the most notable questionable this week. He got in some practice but remains a game-time decision for Sunday. The coaching staff believes he will play, but you should check back on Sunday for inactive news. Adrian Peterson owners should start AP with no real concerns. He might lose some carries to Toby Gerhart, but since he is starting, he would seem to be set for a solid workload. We'll be tweeting important inactive details from @sbnationfantasy.

For those wondering, the designations break down as follows:

Out: 0% change of playing
Doubtful: 25% chance of playing
Questionable: 50% chance of playing
Probable: 75% chance of playing

For fantasy purposes, you can almost always assume a probable player can be slotted into your lineup. I would be somewhat shocked if any of those Probable players ended up inactive this Sunday barring any news tonight or tomorrow. Questionable players on the other hand put you in a tough position. At least half if not more of these guys will play, but you will likely find yourself waiting on a "game-time decision" for most of them. It is not a problem for 1:00pm ET starts, but the 4:05 and 4:15pm ET starts, it can become a pain in the butt setting your lineup. For those I simply suggest trying to slot them into your flex position (if you have one) so you have some flexibility between running backs and wide receivers (and maybe even tight ends).

This Sunday we'll have final updates for all of these players so check back then. And of course, feel free to tweet us @sbnationfantasy with any sit/start questions you might have.
