No update for Larry Fitzgerald Saturday
Joe Flacco expected to play Sunday
Citing a source, Flacco "feels strongly" about his chances of playing through a mild MCL sprain Sunday, barring an unforeseen setback Saturday. Flacco suffered the injury in Monday's game against the Lions, but was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week.

Dolphins facing backup QB in Week 16
The last time these two teams played, the Dolphins finished with exactly 10 Fantasy points, on the strength of four sacks and a turnover in a 23-21 loss. That was with backup quarterback Thad Lewis in the game, and Lewis will once again lead the Bills this Sunday, with EJ Manuel out.
Though Lewis was actually pretty solid in that win over the Dolphins, opposing Fantasy DST units still averaged 11.7 Fantasy points per game against the Bills in Lewis' three starts. That mark would rank as the eighth-highest in the league for the full season.
Frankly, none of our trio of Fantasy experts believes in Thad Lewis' ability to spark this Bills offense. All three have the Dolphins DST unit ranked in the top-6 for Week 16, so consider them a solid starting option for Sunday's game.

Scott Chandler looking to snap scoreless skid
The last time
Chandler was held to just two receptions for 18 yards in a 23-21 win in Week 7 that also doubled as the start of his now eight-game scoreless streak. He might have a chance to end that streak Sunday, as the Dolphins have allowed nine touchdowns in 14 games to opposing tight ends.
Opposing tight ends are averaging 8.86 Fantasy points per game against the Dolphins, making them one of the best matchups in the league. Unfortunately, Chandler has not topped seven Fantasy points in any of the last six games, so consider him just a low-end Fantasy option.

Bills face improved Dolphins offense Sunday
Opposing DST units took advantage of the Dolphins early in the season, posting double digits in six of the first seven games. That includes a big 18-point effort by the Bills in Week 7, when they racked up three turnovers and a defensive touchdown.
Unfortunately for the Bills, Miami has been able to figure things out recently, averaging 24.3 points per game over the last four, with just four turnovers. In that span, opposing DST units have managed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring just once, while averaging 8.0 points per game.
With the improvement of Miami's offense, a repeat of Week 7 does not seem to be in the cards. Fantasy owners should consider the Bills more of a low-end Fantasy option for Week 16.
