Holton Hill racked up eight total tackles during Monday's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Hill got the extra playing time with Trae Waynes out this week with a concussion. Hill made the most of this game and could be used as a decent IDP replacement if Waynes continues to miss any more outings.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told reporters Monday that he expects linebacker Sean Lee to return to practice this week in a limited capacity. Lee has missed eight games this season due to multiple hamstring injuries. (Source: ProFootballTalk)

Fantasy Impact: Rookie Leighton Vander Esch has been outstanding in Lee’s absence so it’s difficult to know what the veteran’s role will be when he returns to the field.

Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb recorded two sacks in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers. He now has 12 sacks on the season, the most for any rookie in Broncos team history. (Source: ProFootballTalk)

Fantasy Impact: With Rulon Jones and Von Miller in his rear view mirror for the team record, Chubb has his sights set on Jevon Kearse‘s 14.5 league record. With three games remaining, he has a reasonable chance at reaching that milestone.


The Vikings defense had two sacks and forced one turnover during their 21-7 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Overall, the Vikings defense played well keeping them in the game while their offense struggled but they didn't produce much for fantasy owners. The Vikings will be at home against the Dolphins in Week 15 which should be a good matchup for their D/ST.

Dan Bailey had his 47-yard field goal attempt in the fourth quarter blocked during the 21-7 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: The Vikings offense couldn't move the ball down the field most of the game which didn't allow Bailey any opportunities. He'll be at home against the Dolphins in Week 15.

Kyle Rudolph had two receptions for seven yards on five targets during the Vikings loss to the Seahawks on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: The seven-yard effort was a season-low for Rudolph. He remains stuck at two TDs for the season and should not be starting for teams in the fantasy playoffs.

Laquon Treadwell caught all three of his targets for 16 yards during the Vikings 21-7 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Treadwell continues to be a non-factor in the Vikings passing game as the fourth or fifth option.

Stefon Diggs had four receptions for 76 yards on six targets during the Vikings 21-7 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night. Diggs had a 48-yard reception to account for the bulk of his production.

Fantasy Impact: Diggs and the Vikings passing game couldn't get much going against the Seahawks on Monday night. He ends with a decent overall numbers thanks to the one long 48-yard reception. Diggs and the Vikings ariel attack will look to get back on track at home against the Dolphins in Week 15.

Adam Thielen finished the Vikings Monday night loss to the Seahawks with five receptions for 70 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Impact: Thielen was shutout in the first half but made a few grabs in the second half to post a decent final line. He now has over 100 receptions on the season but has been held to 70 yards or fewer in four of his last five games. If you have Thielen and are still alive in the fantasy playoffs then keep plugging him in there.

Latavius Murray had three carries for four yards as he was repeatedly stuffed in short-yardage situations.

Fantasy Impact: Murray has a total of seven carries for 11 yards over the last two weeks. He will only get work extended work if the Vikings possess a lead and are looking to grind out the clock. Murray's only fantasy value is as a handcuff for Dalvin Cook.

Dalvin Cook had 13 carries for 55 yards and five receptions for 28 yards during the Vikings 21-7 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night. Cook scored the Vikings only TD of the game on a six-yard pass with under two minutes left in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Cook salvaged his fantasy day late in the game with a couple of catches and a TD reception. He has 13 receptions over the last two games, albeit for a total of 50 yards. Cook still does not have a rushing score this season in eight games played. He draws a favorable matchup in Week 15 at home against the Dolphins.

Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-33 passes for 208 yards on Monday night against the Seahawks. He tossed a six-yard TD pass to Dalvin Cook with under two minutes left in the game for the Vikings only points in a 21-7 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Cousins' final numbers look better than they were in a game that the Vikings offense sputtered against the Seahawks. It was the second straight game that Cousins was limited to 210 yards or fewer through the air with only one TD pass. He'll return home in Week 15 and try to right the ship against the Dolphins.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Pierre Garcon is being placed on injured reserve this week due to a lingering knee injury, according to a report from senior reporter Joe Fann. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Garcon has not played since Week 9 due to a knee injury and will finish the season with 24 catches for 286 yards and one touchdown in eight games. That is obviously not the kind of production that Garcon and the 49ers were hoping for this season, and it marks the second straight subpar year after signing a five-year contract before the 2017 season.

Doug Baldwin (hip) has been officially ruled out for Monday Night Football in Week 14. (Source: Seahawks PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: As expected. Tyler Lockett should once again see an uptick in targets with Baldwin sidelined. Baldwin has six days to get ready for a Week 15 tilt with the 49ers.
