While your brief analysis of the Panther's Oline has a lot of truth to it, I'm not sure it's yet fair to say that their is a problem in the 2ndary. The rooks are playing pretty well and definitely aren't the problem. Another is that they can't get a pass rush because the QBs are having success throwing the ball for short, quick, Brady esque passes, but when throwing deeper, the interior rush at least is getting there, and the corners have been impressing. While they are no Norman at this point, I can say that they are one of the few bright spots so far. The main problem is that the Oline can't block, and special teams can't tackle.
Fantasy Football Week 17 Injury Reports: Quarterbacks
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bills 1/2: Another full practice for Ryan Fitzpatrick. He's expected to start.
1/1: Put in a full practice Thursday. This is great news for Terrell Owens owners.
12/31: Practiced on Wednesday with limited reps. The horrible Brian Brohm will likely return to the bench.
Fantasy Football Week 17 Injury Reports: Running Backs
Ahmad Bradshaw, Giants 1/3: Giants beat writer Ralph Vacchiano believes Ahmad Bradshaw will sit out Sunday.
1/2: For the second consecutive week Ahmad Bradshaw hasn't practiced. He's listed as questionable, but should play.
Justin Fargas, Raiders 1/2: Listed as doubtful after missing Friday's practice.
1/1: Was out of Thursday's practice.
12/31: Missed practice Wednesday with a knee injury.
Steven Jackson, Rams 1/2: Missed practice all week. Steven Jackson will be a game-time decision on Sunday. There's no reason to risk injury here.
Brandon Jacobs, Giants 12/31: Brandon Jacobs is out for the Vikings game.
Julius Jones, Seahawks 1/2: Jim Mora Jr.'s ineptness knows no bounds. Julius Jones practiced fully Friday and is expected to split carries evenly with Justin Forsett. Mora ranks among the worst head coaches in NFL history, right next to Rich Kotite and Marty Mornhinweg.
1/1: Once again missed practice. This is great news for Seahawks fans and Justin Forsett owners.
12/31: Julius Jones missed practice Wednesday. The clueless Jim Mora Jr. will try his best to get the pedestrian Jones into the lineup over the superior Justin Forsett.
Pierre Thomas, Saints 1/2: Out for Sunday's game.
1/1: Missed practice again Thursday.
12/31: Missed practice Wednesday with his rib injury. It's doubtful that he plays.
Michael Turner, Falcons 1/2: Once again didn't practice.
1/1: Missed practice again Thursday.
12/31: Didn't practice on Wednesday. Don't have him in your lineup.
DeAngelo Williams, Panthers 1/2: Once again missed practice on Friday.
1/1: Missed practice Thursday. He's unlikely to play.
12/31: DeAngelo Williams missed practice Wednesday. Stay tuned for further updates.
Ricky Williams, Panthers 1/2: Limited again on Friday. He should be able to play.
1/1: Practiced Thursday, but shared reps with Lex Hilliard.
12/31: Had a limited practice on Wednesday. I bet that he plays against the Steelers.
Fantasy Football Week 17 Injury Reports: Wide Receivers
Pierre Garcon, Colts 1/1: Limited in practice again Thursday.
12/31: Was limited in practice Wednesday, but I wouldn't count on him playing much, if at all.
Devin Hester, Bears 1/2: Not listed on the injury report. Will start.
1/1: Had a full practice Thursday and is expected to start.
12/31: Limited in practice Wednesday. You shouldn't care at this point.
Vincent Jackson, Chargers 1/2: Not expected to play Sunday.
Mario Manningham, Giants 1/3: Out for Sunday's game. A bit of a surprise.
Brandon Marshall, Broncos 1/2: Brandon Marshall is OUT for Sunday's game.
1/1: Missed practice Thursday. He might be a game-time decision.
12/31: Pulled his hamstring during Wednesday's practice. He's expected to play, but I always advise against starting any receiver with a hammy issue.
Derrick Mason, Ravens 1/2: Limited on Friday and listed as questionable. Should play.
Lance Moore, Saints 1/2: Out for Sunday's game.
Eddie Royal, Broncos 1/3: In addition to Brandon Marshall, the Broncos will also be down Eddie Royal on Sunday. Royal is out.
Hines Ward, Steelers 1/2: Practiced fully on Friday and listed as probable. He's way too risky to use in a fantasy championship.
1/1: Missed practice again Thursday. You cannot trust him at this point. Have him on your bench.
12/31: Missed practice Wednesday, but he always does that. Stay tuned.

1/1: Troy Polamalu told reporters that he's unlikely to play at Miami.
12/31: Hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game, but happens to be very questionable.
Ed Reed, S, Ravens 1/3: Guess Ed Reed was wrong about himself. He has practiced all week and should at least be limited at Oakland.
12/31: Ed Reed said that he doesn't think he'll play against the Raiders.
Jeremy Shockey, TE, Saints 1/2: Once again limited on Friday. Backup David Thomas has missed practice all week, so don't count on him.
1/1: Limited again in practice Thursday.
12/31: Limited in practice on Wednesday. There's no reason to trust him at this point.
