Description: According to espn.com, Denver receiver Wes Welker (concussion) is expected to miss the final two games of the regular season.
Insight: Welker suffered his second concussion of the season on Dec. 8. Andre Caldwell, who stepped in and caught two touchdowns against San Diego last Thursday, will be Denver\'s No. 3 receiver again this week at Houston and a WR3 option in fantasy leagues. Welker will finish with 73 receptions for 778 yards, both his lowest since 2006, and a career-high 10 touchdowns in 13 games.
Description: Just like last week, Packers running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) sat out of practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned Friday, according to Rob Demovsky of espn.com.
Insight: Lacy was questionable for Week 15 due to an ankle sprain but he ended up playing and ran for 141 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries while picking up 30 yards on four catches. He\'s a must-start in Week 16 against Pittsburgh.
Description: Sacramento rookie guard Ben McLemore tied a season-high with 20 points Friday at Miami.
Insight: McLemore has shot just 35.8 percent from the field in 19 games since joining the starting lineup, including 17.1 percent from Dec. 9-17. However, he\'s hit on 13-of-19 over the past two games.
Description: The Orioles two-year deal with closer Grant Balfour has fallen through due to medical concerns, but the right-hander claims he is "100 percent fine," according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Balfour saved a career-high 38 games with the Athletics last season and has posted a sub-2.60 ERA in four straight seasons. The O\'s signed him to close after trading Jim Johnson to Balfour\'s old team in Oakland, but they backed out.

Description: Corner infielder Kevin Youkilis has apparently signed to play in Japan for 2014, according to a CBSSports.com report.
Insight: Youk\'s days of being a fantasy asset were well in the past, as he batted just .219 with a .648 OPS last season, but its a bit surprising that no MLB club was willing to take a shot with him.
